Friday Nerd Blogging: The Eve of the Fourth

May 3, 2013

With tomorrow being May 4th, it is only good and proper that we mark the eve of that most awesome of nerd holidays with this video.

I have a serious case of envy.  It would be a heap of fun to do what it takes to join the 501st Legion.  I would definitely choose to wear a Rebel outfit.  But I don’t have the dedication or the skills to do what it takes.

All I can say is: May the Fourth Be With You.  And it will be with all of us soon enough as Disney starts kicking out new Star Wars movies on a regular basis in just two years.
