Top 10 Notable SW people of 2010

 UPDATE: I'm so sorry! I got this wrong. The Jedi Path reached #15 on Amazon.com, not #40.
Before it gets too late to do this.....
 
What is the name for SW actors/authors/producers? Celebrities? Not in order-these are just some SW "people" who deserve a shout out this year.


1.) Harrison Ford
Congratulations on his marriage to Calista Flockhart! It took place June 15th, in Santa Fe.
2.) Daniel Wallace
For writing one of the most wildly anticipated SW books of all time, The Jedi Path! It reached #15 on Amazon.
3.) Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff
Her much-anticipated novel, formerly-Holostar(I can't remember what the new name is. Shadow Play, Shadow Games, something about shadows?) is due Sept. 27th. She also wrote my favorite filk ever, Midichlorian Rhapsody, with her husband.
4.) Ashley Eckstein
By creating the clothing line Her Universe, she demonstrated that she loves working on The Clone Wars, Star Wars in general, and it's not just another job for her. 
5.) Natalie Portman
Back to the movie scene with Black Swan, engaged to choreographer Benjamen Millieped.
6.)Ben Burrt
For writing the fantastic book The Sounds of Star Wars. Sounds regaled us with lore, behind the scenes stories, pictures, and some pretty sweet sound effects.
7.) Christie Golden
Settling down in the SW author scene with her second SW novel, Allies. Her third and final FOTJ book, Ascension, is due August 16th. Lets hope we see more of her in Star Wars.
8.) Dave Filoni
For the first part of another wonderful season of The Clone Wars. Also, everyone who worked on this.
9.)Sean Williams
For Fatal Alliance, officially the oldest(chronologically) SW novel! Yay!
10.)Catherine Taber
Padme's been getting a lot more air time in TCW lately. Catherine's voice is just what I imagined her to be.

Any other suggestions?

my fangirl obsessions go in cycles...this week, it's totally Heroes of Olympus/Percy Jackson(again)

There's this amazing artist on deviantart...burdge-bug...who does AMAZING Percy Jackson, Hunger Games, Harry Potter, Maximum Ride, and even HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE fanart. Now, we need to get her to read Artemis Fowl...XD.

Anyways, here are some of my favorites of hers.

eeeeeeeeeeeeee
I kind of want to pull a Ms. Black and blast Jason right off the tapestry. There's some speculation to whether or not Annabeth will be on the Argo II. I kind of don't want her to be, so Nico can join instead. Then again, if Nico is already in Rome(as speculated at the end of Neptune) there's still room.  GAH RR WHY MUST YOU TORMENT US SO



































love this scene...Senatus Populusque Romanus FTW.

Which do you think is cooler? Camp Half Blood or Camp Jupiter? Camp Jupiter definitely has a more efficient way of doing things(separating by cohort instead of parentage, sending large groups instead o…

Ciel Phantomhive vs. Artemis Fowl

Don't laugh. XD
The similarities between the two characters are so distinct and obvious that comparison is inevitable for anyone who's read/watched both series. I seriously thought when I first noticed Black Butler(more popularly referred to as Kuroshitsuji) that it was literally an anime adaption of Artemis Fowl.  Other people have read Artemis Fowl and thought "CIEL HAS A CLONE??!?"
So I thought I'd outline some of the differences and analyze who would win. XD
Similarities:
Appearance:  This is the first similarity, and one of the most major, because if they didn't look so darn alike I don't think the comparison would have been as striking. The above picture of Artemis is a fanart, because there aren't really any good pictures of Artemis, and the manga style makes it more obvious. They are both from the British Isles and have black hair and blue eyes. Both of them lose/change/switch an eye resulting in two different colors. 
Circumstance: They both s…

updates on life(aka excuses to post tumblr gifs)

If I had to describe my life in one word right now, it'd be cold. Brr.


Let's see..what's happening?

I got my back bend kickover from le ground in acro. It's awesome. :) I never thought I'd be able to do it XD

Of course, it's not with straight legs(yet). And I don't hit my splits in the middle. Come to think of it, it's actually sort of a back flop-over.



I read Skeleton Key and Eagle Strike(next two Alex Rider books) last night. The series has gotten better, but it still has the same problems. Just like Suzanne Collins makes the simplest events seem chilling and scary, the numerous random deaths in Alex Rider are just like "meh...whatever."

They all still have similar plots. Such as:

1. The book opens with some sort of mysterious circumstance. Usually an assasination or an exchange where one of the members gets stabbed in the back(sometimes literal, sometimes not) and killed. Either way, someone usually dies.
2. Alex Rider is hanging out drinkin…
