Good morning. That's a nice short introduction. Let's dive in...
While promoting Men in Black 3, Will Smith mentioned Star Wars in an interview at MovieLine.com. Here's the excerpt:
"This brings Smith full circle, in a way, with the roots of his own success, which he credits to soaking up the pop cultural trifecta of Star Wars, hip-hop, and TV’s Dallas as a child.
“It just felt like somehow the limits got knocked off after I saw [Star Wars],” Smith recalled. He was 10 years-old when he first saw the sci-fi classic. “It coincided right with the time that ‘Rapper’s Delight’ came out, so it was the introduction to rap music and Star Wars in the same year. Rap music was something that only people in New York did, and it was separate and you couldn’t get it, but part of the experience of Star Wars made me think, ‘Oh, I can rap.’ My mind got expanded in a way that’s really hard to explain.”'
New York Mets pitcher R.A. Dickey explains how he plans on passing his love of Star Wars down to his 5 year old son in an article at Salon.com.

The book was written by a high schooler (and self-proclaimed nerd) in the late 90's. The book is very funny and the careful reader will readily identify the occasional Star Wars references throughout, including a 1138 and a mention of Darth Vader, among others."
Taking you back to the 70s and Fisher Price...
