A lot of people have Boba Fett tattoos

A few nights ago I was walking in Dupont Circle and I passed some guy with a nifty Boba Fett tattoo on his leg. I was impressed by his choosing a minor Star Wars character to immortalize on his skin.

Until I Googled the words “Boba Fett” and “tattoo.” Damn, there are a lot of you out there with the intergalactic bounty hunter inked on some part of your person.

Here is a gallery of pictures from the web – and I’ve done my best to credit the source where I found the pics but let me know in the comments if the picture/tattoo belongs to you.

Here’s a Tattoo By Zip:

Another – this one actually is Jango Fett, Boba’s dad – from here:

This tattoo is apparently “Shawn’s” (which I gathered from this page):

Finally: a combination Hello Kitty-Boba Fett character found here:

Which one is your fave?

Go-Go’s trivia courtesy of Belinda’s book

I recently went on a pretty bad Go-Go’s bender after reading Belinda Carlisle’s memoir Lips Unsealed. I couldn’t stop listening to the old albums or watching their videos for a solid week. Have you read the book?

Geez! Sex, drugs. And drugs. And more drugs. And some drinking. But mostly drugs.

Anyway, the book is filled with interesting tidbits about the late 1970s/early 1980s Los Angeles punk scene. And of course, Belinda shares plenty of stories about the Go-Go’s heyday.

For instance, how about this bit of trivia. In the “Our Lips Are Sealed” video, during Jane Wiedlin‘s “Hush my darling, don’t you cry” bridge, if you look closely you can see Jane’s not alone in the backseat of the convertible. Belinda, who was hungover and didn’t much feel like making something called a “music video” anyway, can be seen hunched over in the driver’s seat.

Take a look:

Neat, huh? Are you a Go-Go’s fan? A Belinda fan? Have you read the book?

As we were saying…

Are you ready to kick up your heels again with Gina Vivinetto’s Greatest Hits?

Let’s push this sucker to 2,000,000.
