There are few things in life more sacred than Star Wars. As most men know, there were only three Star Wars movies and the most impressive of those was The Empire Strikes Back. Dark movie, epic cliffhanger, snow planet, and sweet special effects – what more could you ask for? Thirty years later, J.W. Rinzler releases a pictorial coffee table book that is the only thing we like almost as much as the Big Book of Boobs and/or Butts (before you get all uppity, we said ALMOST) – The Making of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. It’s filled with rare photographs, annotated with behind-the-scene details, and covers the entire story from screenplay to completion. According to the great bunned one herself (Carrie Fisher), it’s “the acid flashback they’ve been promising us without the mess and fuss of dropping acid . . . again. A trip worth taking.”

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
