Another day, another listicle: This one comes courtesy of Condé Nast Traveler, which published a feature in its most recent issue titled "Skip Atlanta. Go Here Instead."
"Here," in case you hadn't surmised from the headline of this post, is good ol' Classic City, G-A—y'know, the town with all the best stuff. The magazine lists several local hotspots as examples of why Athens flat-out rulez and Atlanta straight-up droolz.
For months, UGA wide receiver Chris Conley has been working on a Star Wars fan film with a cast and crew of friends and fans. In April, we showed you the trailer for Retribution, and now you can finally see the full results of Conley's hard work.
Below, watch the 26-minute short, which was shot on and around the UGA campus and features cameos from some recognizable local faces. It is ridiculous and nerdy and slick and basically the best thing ever.

Most people know the story of how Hamilton Holmes and Charlayne Hunter integrated the University of Georgia in 1961.
But fewer people know the tale of how Holmes and Hunter inspired a generation of Athens high school students—Robert Harrison, Charlie Maddox, Ken Dious, Carolyn Turner, Ed Turner, Bennie McKinley and Shirley Taylor, among others—to fight segregation at another local landmark.
A new, short documentary, produced by Athens native Nicole Taylor (now of Brooklyn) for the Southern Foodways Alliance, focuses on how young black Athenians integrated the Varsity.
