James Greene is watching Star Wars movies accompanied by various albums to see if they synch ala Dark Side of the Moon and The Wizard of Oz.
A sweet love song for all the geek-lovin’ ladies in the house. Thanks to Rach for the find!

The American Film Institute has named the score for A New Hope as the greatest film score of all time. John Williams has three scores in the top 25, also including Jaws (#6) and E.T. (#14.) Rounding out the top five are the scores for Gone with the Wind, Lawrence of Arabia, Psycho, and The Godfather.
With song titles like “The Foil (Malfoy)” and “Voldemort Can’t Stop the Rock,” 18-year-old Joe and 26-year-old Paul have watched in stunned amazement as their “goofy” idea has turned into a full-fledged, touring band.

And the outfits help too.
That’s it, CJrs: we totally have to revive The Dead Daalas.

I was more than a little surprised that the Tori Amos Star Wars concert info ended up on TFN, since I never even considered blogging it… The Dent being as un-TFNy as a fansite can possibly get – but it’s amusing that it did. Pictures from the concert even ended up on Pink is the New Blog – scroll past Britney and Paris and look for the 5 year-old in the Amidala costume. Fuzzy, but cute. Someone on the Tori LJ community has pics, too.
The music video that was shown at the Opening Ceremonies of Celebration 3, “A Hero Falls“, is now up for public consumption. This video and 15 others will be on a DVD included with the Revenge of the Sith soundtrack.
Revenge of the Sith soundtrack with bonus Palpatine! Well, and a DVD. But mostly Ian McDiarmid. Oddly enough, does not come out on April 2nd with the rest of the prequel stuff…
We also get a look at some new toys. The highlight? An Obi-Wan lightsaber that, um, vibrates:
Obi-Wan Kenobi Electronic Lightsaber — Turn it on and it vibrates with the power of the mystic energy field that surrounds all living things.
Mystical power of the Force. Sure.
