Article: Fanedits Get Some Exposure In A New Article From Penthouse

Blair Fischer Wrote:Smart, considering those who are disemboweling Star Wars films are the same people purchasing adult-size Ewok costumes

I completely agree. FYI, As reave mentioned in the first post, this is the "maxim article" (original post, here). There was always an attitude of "nerds in their parent's basement" concerning the article. I got the questionnaire from Blair as well, but was kind of put off, so I never continued the dialogue. I was really happy to see blueyoda start f*$king with him.

Yes, it's nice to get exposure, but it's also kind of shitty to continue the macho vs. nerd stereotypes.
