Sunday Links for January 8th

We started the new year on a sad note.  In the past week, we lost Bob Anderson, an Olympic fencer and movie swordsman.  We knew him best swinging a lightsaber as Darth Vader in "The Empire Strikes Back" and "Return of the Jedi."  We also lost Richard Alf, one of the founders of San Diego Comic Con.  Alf was an early benefactor of SDCC, and is a huge reason it is what it is today.  You will both be missed.

This week also brought the disturbing news that there is an upcoming Twilight musical.  While it seems it will be a sarcastic parody, it still saddens me.  Hopefully the Star Alliance can put an end to it......

For everyone getting as obsessed with Skyrim as I am, check out this fan-made Monopoly board.  It is a great backup in case the power goes out.
