Make A Wish: Slave Leia Carwash

Damn, SoCal. Not only was there a rad art opening for Thomas Doyle this weekend, there was also a freakin’ carwash full of Slave Princess Leias and a Playmate Padme!

It was all part of a Star Wars Charity benefit by G4TV. Not the first time they’ve dabbled in Leia-xploitation, in 2007 they dressed up Olivia Munn as Slave Leia. This time they used her powers for good instead of evil—the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Video: Steampunk Special on G4

Nicely done piece on Steampunk by G4TV (via Make).
Rather than treat it like a jokey fad or freakshow, they do a pretty good job showing off what makes the stuff so damn cool.

Which reminds me, the 2nd Annual Handcar Regatta is Sept. 27th in Santa Rosa. Mark it down, punk!
