Happy Star Wars Day!
This is one of my favorite days. I bust out my Darth Vader socks, watch the classics, and think about how crazy huge this samurai space western has become.
I used to watch the orig trig when I was a kid to the point where the tapes were worn. In high school, I directed The Complete Works of William Shakespeare Abridged which contained a full-on lightsaber battle. In college, I went to a few conventions and had the pleasure of meeting Chewbacca, Darth Maul, and THE Boba Fett.
I'm a fan, is what I'm saying.
Needless to say, when I made this throwaway joke about an ATAT hiking the Appalachian Trail, I had no idea how many nerds would come out of the woodwork who were not only big fans too, but hikers (and even thru-hikers!)
Who says nerds don't get off the couch?
I'm glad they're out there, because thanks to these nerds, this design has earned over $1500 for the Appalachian Trail Conservancy! Rocking sweet nerd swag AND saving the world?! Yeah, we make it easy. Click here to shop the collection!
So, I know you've got an opinion here... what's the BEST Star Wars movie? I'm still a die-hard Empire Strikes Back fan, but The Last Jedi had some amazing moments! Let's discuss over on Instagram or Facebook!
