Postage Stamp of the Week: Darth Maul

Darth Maul was by far the most awesome part of the recent Star Wars prequel trilogy. That's not saying a whole lot; still, he was cooly, enigmatically evil, speaking little but looking and acting like a total fucking badass. Unfortunately, he was killed off way too soon, by the saber of a rat-tailed Obi-Wan Kenobi in Episode I: The Phantom Menace, the only movie in which he appeared.

Mr. Maul's stamp was unveiled Wednesday as part of the USPS's 15-stamp Star Wars pane. This stamp is too weirdly purplish, and I find the whole set kinda weesh, but I'll probably buy a sheet anyway -- after they become available on May 25 -- and stick 'em on my electric bills.

BWT, I spotted one of those R2-D2 mailboxes a couple days ago on the south side of NE Pacific Street, just outside of the UW Medical Center. I have a bad feeling about this.
