“I don’t have the world’s longest fingernails, shortest dog, or largest collection of vacuum cleaners. But, according to the globally-recognized authority on such things, Guinness World Records 2014, I have amassed the “Largest Collection of Star Wars Memorabilia” in the galaxy.

Since last Thursday, when the latest edition of the Guinness book was released, video of me and the collection has been on hundreds of broadcast and cable stations in the US and in places from Japan to New Zealand, and Guatemala to Scotland. Further, there have been hundreds of Internet sites ranging from the expected hardcore Star Wars fan sites to Huffington Post and Time.com that have run photos, videos, and stories. Even Craig Ferguson was moved to mention me by name and show a photo of me and the collection during a slightly snarky monologue on The Late Late Show — making us officially part of the zeitgeist!”
