Weekly Space Junk Cleanup: Vol. 7

I like it a lot

After a brief sabbatical from the blog, I’m back for the weekly cleanup, where I toss out all the odds and ends that charged my inner iNerd during the week, so without further ado …

I’ll Trade Ya’ … In an effort to continue feeding the nerd nostalgia machine (and their bottom line), J.J. Abrams and Lucasfilm have begun releasing character names from Star Wars:  The Force Awakens on retro-themed Topps-style trading cards that resemble the ones we all went bats**t crazy for a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, before George Lucas committed “special edition” rape.  Collect ’em…Trade ’em…Sell ’em on Ebay.  Billy D approves ….
