Happy 15th Birthday, Portland Mercury! A Note from Editor in Chief Wm. Steven Humphrey
There was a lot of Star Wars hype over the weekend, as Star Wars Celebration Europe—like a comic convention, or Comic-Con, but with nothing except Star Wars stuff allowed, lest you want to be beaten by a thousand plastic lightsabers grasped in a thousand frail, shaking arms—proceeded to carpet-bomb nerds with stingy hints about Episode VII and a new cartoon and videogames and a billion other ways to make money. But there was one pure bit of goodness, one complete and whole chunk of happiness, and it came with the simple news that John Williams will be scoring the new trilogy. Watch this and tell me that John Williams does not make everything better.
