Random Weekend Star Wars Fun (5/30&31)

Posted By Mike on May 31, 2009





We end May as it began...with lots of random Star Wars fun...












Let's start this weekend off with an announcement from our friends at Galactic Binder:

GALACTICBINDER.COM’S 1 YEAR BIRTHDAY BASH
June 1st - June 5th


"GalacticBinder.com is turning 1 on June 2nd! To celebrate, we’re throwing a huge birthday bash, and you’re all invited. But instead of us receiving presents at our party, we’ll be giving the presents to you!

Throughout the first week of June, we’ll be giving away a Star Destroyer sized pile of Star Wars swag thanks to our sponsors. It’s 100% free. Consider it our way of saying thanks for a fantastic first year online.

And we’ve made it very simple to join the party. How simple? Well, even a Nerf-herder can manage this one. So stop by GalacticBinder’s Birthday Bash page to get the jump on becoming eligible to win when the party starts!"


Happy B'day GB!







GeekDad at Wired.com pays tribute to the May 25th anniversary of the release of Star Wars. Excerpt below:

"What else do I remember from the series? I grew up in kind of a bad neighborhood, so Luke’s vulnerability in the Mos Eisley Cantina really struck a chord. I was also into horror movies at the time, thanks to a local late-night TV show called “Creature Features“, so that scene presented quite an intersection of phobias. I remember thinking that Alec Guiness as Ben Kenobi seemed like the coolest teacher ever. I remember Leia’s kiss to Luke just before they swung across the chasm left by the retracted walkway on the Death Star."








Our friend Mario B. sent over the following:

"My sons and I just got back from watching the new Disney/Pixar movie, UP and as always, Pixar made a great movie! I won't spoil it but there are 2 Star Wars references in the film. One toward the end and one as the credits are rolling. The first one is the best though, and as it happened, both my sons knew exactly what it was! Any SW fan will not miss it because it's not subltle at all and was very cool. I encourage everyone, including people who don't have childeren to see it. Pixar never ceases to amaze me. Just thought I'd share."

Thanks Mario!







Friend of TFN, Chris C. ("JediChewie7934"), sent over the following news:

"I was listening to NPR's All Things Considered today as they were reading listeners mail & corrections. They mentioned (accompanied by full Star Wars fanfare) that May the 4th, 2009 was an unofficial Star Wars holiday. A listener clued them in when they could not understand why May 4, 2009 was recently the second most searched for topic on the web. Here's a link to the mention which is about two minutes long."

Thanks Chris!







Another friend of TFN, Brian, found a short interesting article on MSN Encarta that highlights "Celebrity War Heroes and Spies." Click here and learn a little bit more about the history of Sir Alec Guinnes.

Thanks Brian!
