Donald MacInnes writes Tales from the Water Cooler, which can be found every Saturday on page 2 of i. And, although a financial near-imbecile, he writes a weekly column in The Independent’s Money section, also on Saturdays. He writes regularly on a broad range of subjects in i’s Freeview section and occasionally fills in on Simon Kelner’s daily column when emotionally up to it. @DonaldAMacInnes

Much excitement among the dweebs this week, with the news that – in what has been labelled The X-Wing Factor (by me, principally) – Disney is to hold open auditions for the new Star Wars movie.

Last week I presented you with a lovingly conceived, hand-crafted essay dealing with what I regarded as being the best deal ever struck in business - the one which saw snot-nosed up-and-coming director George Lucas refuse a handsome salary to direct Star Wars, in return for the merchandising rights and total control over any future sequels. Although 20th Century Fox has made a geyser of cash from the space film, Lucas walked away with some $7.3bn (£4.5bn), most of which would have gone into the studio's savings account had it not been done up like a kipper by Lucas.
