May The Fourth Be With You: Happy Star Wars Day!



I don’t want to stereotype here and say that all geeks are excited about today, but I’m willing to bet that a fair number of you have May 4th marked on the calendar, just like Grandma’s birthday and that long-awaited game release. (Half-Life 3, anyone? Sigh.)

For you Star Wars and Apple-lovers out there, a bunch of  Star Wars iPhone wallpapers. I’m pretty sure these will work fine on Android-based phones too.


If you want to make some Darth Vader cupcakes today, here’s a quick tutorial for the ones shown below.

If you find your lack of SW knowledge disturbing, why not head to Wookieepedia and brush up on trivia? (Related: TIL that Saadoon-Kauldi was a Force-sensitive Kadri’Ra slave who was freed by members of the Twi’lek Badawzi family and eventually became a spice-dealing crime lord. The more you know.)

Get lightsaber finger tattoos! Because WHY NOT.

And if you find yourself in need of some recruits for your Star Wars-themed activities, try some of these propaganda posters.

We’ve also featured some rather sexy ones on [GAS] in the past as well as right here.

However you spend the day, have a good one. And May the Fourth be with you.

  1. No way. May 25 has been Star Wars Day since I was around 14. I get the punniness of the "May Fourth," but this holiday isn't canon in my life just because some dude on Facebook made the joke four years ago.

  2. I much prefer the idea that March 4th is Grammar Day because it's the only date that forms a sentence.
