Happy Star Wars Day!

“The Imperial March” was composed by John Williams for the 1980 film “The Empire Strikes Back.” It was introduced three weeks before the film debuted at John Williams’ first concert as resident conductor for the Boston Pops Orchestra.

Legos were first manufactured and sold in the US in 1949 but credit for the design probably goes to Kiddicraft Self Locking Bricks which were first sold in United Kingdom in 1947.

Computer Animation was first used in the 1973 movie “Westworld.” “Star Wars: Episode IV” in 1977 was the third film in history to use the technology.

Someone  has combined these three awesome things to make today’s super cool Star Wars Day video!

May The Fourth be with you ladies and gents! This morning I will be having two cinnamon buns for breakfast. I will, with premeditation and malice aforethought, put one up to each ear and cry “Help me Obi Wan, you’re my only hope” before I devour them. I love a good made up holiday! Though, when you think about it, almost all holidays are really just excuses for folks to get their party on and amen to that! Now I just have to change my religion to Jedi so I can convince my boss that letting me wear a Slave Leia costume to work is an expression of religious freedom!
