Happy 35th Birthday Star Wars (VIDEO)

Today, Star Wars turns 35 years old.  I wanted to take this opportunity to show the original trailer.

Now, I also wanted to remind everyone who says they grew up with Star Wars, and specifically those who recall seeing it in the theater, that you have to be at least 35 years old to say that...and probably more like 40 years old to say you actually remember the theater experience.  That doesn't mean you are less of a fan; you might even be a bigger fan because you choose to lie about seeing a move that came out before you were born or had the memory capacity to recall seeing it in the theater.  Anyway, this trailer makes it look so much darker and mysterious than it is.  Too bad the guy who put that trailer together didn't make Episodes 1-3.

Beethoven's 5th Symphony Visually Digitized

The nerd in me and the musician in me unite in this amazing visual representation of Beethoven's 5th Symphony.  My dad told me about this and said, "All this was in (Beethoven's) head".  Talented man.
