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 those of you who have a smartphone, there’s a lot of  Star Wars-themed mobile wallpapers on Pinterest. I’m pretty sure you’ll find one for your device over there!

If you want to make some Star Wars cookies or pop cakes today, here are two quick tutorials:

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, even if it’s not canon anymore.)

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.

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