Alice had a treat for the Star Wars fan’s eyeballs today over at Wonderland: a new Lego Ultimate Collector’s Millennium Falcon set — over 3 feet in length! It’s made of over 5,000 pieces which, apparently, makes it the biggest Lego set ever made. It also includes Han Solo, Chewbacca, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia Organa.

It can be yours this October for a mere £350!

While you’re revelling in lost youth, be sure to check out the new Transformers toys as well.

Disney plans live action Sorcerer’s Apprentice. With Nicholas Cage as the Sorcerer. Seriously, could they not think of a worse idea?

Feodor Rojankovsky

John K has a great post on Feodor Rojankovsky‘s illustrative paintings over at his blog today.

Rojankovsky (1891-1970) was a Russian-born artist best known for his animal-filled childrens illustrations. “Two great events determined the course of my childhood. I was taken to the zoo and saw the most marvellous creatures on earth: bears, tigers, monkeys and reindeer, and, while my admiration was running high, I was given a set of color crayons.”

More of his work for children can be found here and here. He also drew lady parts. Um, that last link probably isn’t safe for work.

Could California split from the USA?

by Trevor May | 13th February 2007 | Asides Miscellany Travel | Comment on this

Could California split from the USA? “California’s governor has also put his finger on a little discussed flaw in America’s constitutional formula. The United States is almost certainly too big to be a meaningful democracy. What does “participatory democracy” mean in a continent? Sooner or later, a profound, probably regional, decentralization of the federal system may be all but inevitable.” (via Kottke)

Read “Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom” for free

by Trevor May | 6th February 2007 | Asides Books | 1 comment

I’ve been meaning to read Cory Doctorow’s novel “Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom” for absolutely ages but have never managed to get around to it — until now! DailyLit are offering it, for free, emailed to you in 65 regularly sent chunks so you have no excuse either! (Incidentally, and do call me an idiot, I only realised today that Cory Doctorow is the same Cory Doctorow that co-edits Boing Boing!)
