Happy Star Wars Day!

Sometimes what we consider to be great cultural touchstones are simply works that have managed to physically survive through the ages. Literature is rife with such examples.

One day, will beleaguered students analyze George Lucas the way we do Shakespeare? Like it or not, you can easily make the case that Lucas’ work will still be kicking around 500 years from now, such has been its popularity.

In honour of this bright and sunny Star Wars day, I present you with the following videos—I do seem to enjoy collecting them...

May the Fourth be with you!
