It is no secret that I love science fiction.  I also love music, and I also love paper.  This video, animated by Eric Power, is a summary (ish) of the three original star wars movies set to the tune of “Tatooine” by Jeremy Messersmith.  I like it for several reasons:

  1. Messersmith is a Minneapolis-based musician, and while I am no longer in Minnesota I still have a terrible fondness for the place.
  2. It’s so nerdy.  The song is nerdy, the video is nerdy, it’s all nerdy.  But it’s the really sweet earnest kind of nerdy that I am such a sucker for.
  3. I love cut paper.

I hope you like it as much as I do. (Which is a lot)
