Got a link to something out of the norm about Star Wars that you've seen on the net?

Post it here! (PG-13 of course) or lesser, no R rated stuff...

The banjo version was better than the Bagpipes IMHO. Pretty funny either way.

Well, there goes the "Banjo/Bag Pipes Greatest Duets" CD I was planning to get you for Christmas, MDP.

I guess I gots to wrassle me some more Mormons and tie them in a bow, then....

Both were pretty good, I was a little more impressed with the bagpipes one, which sounded surprisingly rich considering the instrument (though towards the end it got a little midi-esque which reminded me of some of the classic Atari Star Wars games :p).

JT- I was impressed by the bagpiper, too. My son's best friend (and Mrs. TI7's and my "adopted son") plays bagpipes. In high school (the Highland High School Highlanders), he was the mascot and would play at all games, assemblies, and other special event. Since graduating, he plays gigs (St. Paddy's Day is a big money-maker for him) frequently.

The bag pipes have a limited musical range. Son No. 2 was asked to play The National Anthem for our local pro hockey team recently, but had to decline since the bag pipes can't handle it (he's still negotiating for "America the Beautiful"). The guy on Youtube does a good job with the Star Wars theme, given the limitations of the instrument.
