George Lucas pulls the plug on Star Wars movie marathon over in Brooklyn.George Lucas pulls the plug on Star Wars movie marathon over in Brooklyn.

Organizers claim Lucasfilm's legal stormtroopers fired off a cease-and-desist order just two days before the event. Organizers of the 13-hour screening, which had been slated for the Wicked Monk in Bay Ridge on July 3, promptly called it off. The order cited copyright infringements and added that there was a moratorium on public 'Star Wars' screenings.

Middle Earth circa 2009 through the magical eye of Photoshop.Middle Earth circa 2009 through the magical eye of Photoshop.

Ever wonder what society would be like if mystical creatures really existed? What if trolls, faeries, unicorns, dragons, witches, sorcerers, golems, elves, or any other known mystical fantasy creature were still around today mixing with the human element?
