Star Wars Fan Puts Himself in Carbonite 204

sneezesteve writes "How do you secure your nerd-cred for eternity? By acquiring a life-size replica of Han Solo in Carbonite, having Han's face removed, and replacing it with your own. 'It is made from fiberglass, and the short story is that a friend who is a special effects guy owned the piece, which was a direct casting off the original prop. He was moving, (aka getting married and yelled at) and asked me if I wanted it. I screamed a huge lispy "Yes!", and picked it up, but knew I wanted to do something cool with it. So I called my other nerdy special effects pals, and they offered to replace Harrison Ford's face with mine. I was so tired of hearing this offer in my daily life, but decided to finally consider it, so off it went.'"

Submission + - The Woz + Kathy Griffin = Hitched (

gr8gatzby writes: "Well we can probably guess their kids names: Clarus for the boy and Lisa for the girl. It appears that Kathy Griffin has a thing for geeks, as her last hubby(infamous for laundering money from her) was as well.

From The Best Week Ever: "...things are looking up for Kath. She's found a new man. A successful man. Sadly, it's not her absolutely adorable assistant Tom (what chemistry those kids have!), rather... a much bigger, richer man. Co-founder of Apple Computers Steve Wozniak to be exact. The two met after Steve saw Kathy perform. Now, we know Steve might not be the handsomest man around, but fans of Kathy know that looks really aren't that important to her. And looks aside... could you really ask for a better catch than the co-founder of Apple F**king Computers? Wethinks not. And, as a side note, from what we've seen on her reality show, Kathy is an Apple girl through and through... which is adorable!" et-kathy-griffin-finds-a-new-man/"
