Our Only Hope

I wouldn’t be a proper geek if I didn’t somehow recognize that yesterday was the 30th birthday of Star Wars. (Maybe now it can finally move out of its parents’ bedroom and find a girlfriend!)

In honor of this great moment in geekdom history, I present the following:

The Star Wars theme on a ukulele
…on a banjo
…on a 5-string bass
…on an accordian
…on an alto sax
…on a pair of turntables by a guy in a Darth Vader mask (check out this one, too)
…on bagpipes by a guy in a Darth Vader mask (no relation)
…on a Casio VL-1
…on bottles
…on a recorder
…on hand farts
…on a clarinet

And last but most earnestly not least – that lovable nutcase Buckethead playing the Star Wars theme on the guitar.

Just so you know, your personal level of geekiness is determined by how many of the above videos you clicked on – and how many you watched all the way through. (But it can’t possibly beat mine, for combing through a couple hundred YouTube videos to bring them to you…)
