Well worth 34 minutes of your time if you HD fullscreen it and snap your headset on!

26b/6 or (26bslash6 if you will) has a lot of entertainment in for you if you have small troll inside. Not a really vicious one though – just a happy, sometimes cute, always funny, little troll that has become quite the internet celebrity ever since Simon’s Pie Charts hit the blogosphere a while back.
In that spirit, this just in:

From storycorps.org: StoryCorps is an independent nonprofit whose mission is to provide Americans of all backgrounds and beliefs with the opportunity to record, share, and preserve the stories of our lives. Since 2003, StoryCorps has collected and archived more than 30,000 interviews from more than 60,000 participants. Each conversation is recorded on a free CD to share, and is preserved at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress.
There’s a great deal of highly interesting material collected, and the importance of such a library cannot be measured or compared to anything.

I didn’t expect this today, though I’ve heard rumours of it!
Yesterday Lucasarts announced that they are releasing the Star Wars hexalogy as a BD set next year, and as a part of the release, previously unseen footage will be included as extra material.
In Return of The Jedi, Vader confronts Luke, and notes that Luke has built a new light sabre, commending his work on it. We never got to see Luke actually building the sabre, which always puzzled me. He got his first sabre (which you all know was Vader’s old sabre – or Anakin’s, rather) from Kenobi in A New Hope, and they made a big deal out of it back then (Norwegian fans will also cringe remembering the subtitler translating “the light sabre” to “den lette sabelen” (the LIGHTWEIGHT sabre)). But at the peak of the Star Wars story, he’s got a new sabre all of a sudden, and we’re left to accept that he just built it inbetween things.
Now, here’s a treat for y’all:
