Pop Culture News and Notes

The force is apparently with the Post Office as they are about to debut mailboxes (400 of them altogether) redesigned to look like feisty droid R2-D2 as part of a promotion for a new Star Wars stamp. The official announcement of the stamp is scheduled for March 28th. (I will refrain from any jokes about mail put in these boxes ending up in a galaxy far, far away from where it was supposed to be delivered…)

Academy Award winner Cate Blanchett is apparently signing on to join Harrison Ford in the fourth Indiana Jones movie. The film, which will be directed by Steven Spielberg and produced by George Lucas, is scheduled to be released on May 22, 2008.

And this just in: Despite any Wikipedia articles to the contrary, actor/comedian Sinbad is still not dead.

I love the R2D2 mailboxes!

You say Sinbad still isn't dead like you're disappointed or something, LOL.

LOL :-) I don't wish my man Sinbad any ill...he makes with the funny without having to resort to random profanity and that's a rare enough thing these days that I'm certainly happy he's not dead.
