Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Really, this is just a post for the 4-year-old who lives in my house. Alas, though, there is a decent local connection, as Arlington resident and Star Wars Super Collector's Wish Book author Geoffrey T. Carlton is selling on eBay his Star Wars Trilogy Arcade Game, which he bought to photograph for the book and has since decided he don't need no more. Only four hours left to bid, and thus far it appears there are no takers at the opening bid of $2,300 -- or, about as much as I've dropped in various machines over the last couple of years feeding the young apprentice's habit.

You know the game, right? Good timing too -- it's the arcade game's 10th anniversary, hooboy. It'd go really well in the game room of my new imaginary house. --Robert Wilonsky

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
