News Article of the Week:

Disney acquires Lucasfilm for $4.05 Billion
And this is how we light up the internet and spark off the Nerd Wars. Some think this will kill the franchise, especially with Disney announcing that they plan to have Star Wars : Episode VII (7) out by 2015. Personally, I think George Lucas made the right move, he’s done enough and can now enjoy his retirement.
George Lucas and Mickey Mouse, big news this week

That makes this true:
Leia, now a Disney Princess


As always, I’m still open to suggestions for other categories, and for nominations to get included on the list. You can let me know at: oftheweekATleighcDOTcom

Happy 10-11-12 to my American friends. (it’s 11-10-12 here in Canada… and most of the rest of the world.)

Movie Trailer of the Week: 

Lincoln – In theatres November 16th, 2012

Synopsis: As the Civil War continues to rage, America’s president struggles with continuing carnage on the battlefield and as he fights with many inside his own cabinet on the decision to emancipate the slaves. Steven Spielberg is back at the helm for what should be another amazing work, this time getting the Oscar winning trio of Daniel Day-LewisTommy Lee Jones and Sally Field. Add in James Spader and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and you have an all-star cast to tell part of the story of one of the United States’ greatest presidents.

YouTube Video of the Week:
The Guild – Season 6, Episode 1
What is probably one of the best, if not the best, web series out there right now is back for Season 6. Codex has landed a new job as the assistant to the creator of The Game, a World of Warcraft like MMO which is played by Felicia Days character, along with the other members of the Knights of Good. I cannot wait to see what adventures are in store for Vork, Clara, Tink, Bladezz and Zaboo.

Felicia Day, best director of the week.
Felicia Day, one of the cutest Redheads out there.

News Article of the Week:
Tennet trying to cook a squirrel, set apartment complex on fire.
I know I should not find this story as amusing as I do… but really, trying to cook a squirrel on your deck? This is one reason I am glad I do not live in an apartment of attached home.

Kijiji Ad of the Week:
As my friend Micah put it… “Shut up and take my money already!!”. This guy sounds legit, and appears to have the creditably to back it up. Of course, if you have a rake like body type like me, and the metabolism of a garbage disposal (although mine is starting to falter… ), then this might be a bit beyond what you can do.
