If I didn’t know any better, I’d assume that a new Star Wars movie was on the horizon. It seems that every day or so, I come across something on the web or receive an email about SW news or related creativity. I subscribe to DesignTAXI, a news and editorial site that is updated daily with inspired creativity and innovation. Just looking back to my emails from February, I count about 15 messages related in some way to Star Wars. Most of the articles are pretty enjoyable as it’s interesting to see how someone has yet again reinvented the cult classic. I’ve watched the first 3 movies and can’t remember much of either except the famous scenes that people can recite by heart. Yet, growing up in the 80s, I will always have affection for the trilogy. And so to keep that nostalgia alive, I’ve compiled some of the more enjoyable Star Wars-related pieces that I’ve found from DesignTAXI and elsewhere in the universe. Click on the titles/photos to read the full article.

I’ve never been a huge Star Wars fan, but always appreciated those little jokes associated with the movie – like saying things backwards, or reciting the famous line of ‘Luke, I am Your Father.’
These Tom Tom GPS spots are hilarious, and I wish they would have aired during the Superbowl. But not all of the credit should go to Yoda and Darth Vader. I think the casting for the studio technicians was perfect. The only thing that bothered me was the ’round abound’ humor by Vader. The first time was funny, but the repetition started to get cheeky.
