15 Ways To Play Star Wars Music. From Tesla Coil To The Commodore Amiga.

From a Tesla Coil, to a uni-cycle, to the trusty Commodore Amiga.  Listen to Star Wars being played in the most unusual of ways.

We all love the Star Wars theme and it's accompanying soundtrack.  If like me you've listened to the soundtrack hundreds if not thousands of times you realise how much of a timeless classic the John Williams masterpiece really is.  You can also judge how popular a piece of music is by the amount of times it's been recreated using various musical instruments and other less conventional items.  Here's a selection of some of my favourites.

1 - Star Wars theme played on a Tesla Coil...yes really!  It sounds awesome too.

 2 - this talented musician doing an impressive job on the organ complete with Fox fanfare

3 - Lori Graves plays Star Wars on the Lowrey Organ.  Makes you feel you're on the pier again.

4 - Guy playing the Star Wars theme with bagpipe on unicycle.  Got to love the Internet

5 - Throne Room played on a pipe organ.

6 - The Force theme played on violin and piano.  Sometimes listening to a piece in its raw form is the most moving.

7 - Star Wars main theme on a banjo.  Yeehah!

8 - The Imperial March on a washing machine.  The dark side doesn't seem so dark any more, even washed at a low temperature.

9 - The Imperial March in the style of Beethoven as played by Richard Grayson.  oh yes, its all improvised too.  Impressive, most impressive.

10 - The main theme A Capella cover.

11 - Star Wars opening theme using Minecraft Noteblocks

12 - Imperial March performed on the Synthesia software program.

13 - The Imperial March played on not one floppy disk drive but eight.

14 - Imperial March 8 bit style.  Now this brings back memories.

15 - Return Of The Jedi Played on the Commodore Amiga

Did Paul Freeman Accidentally Eat A Fly In Raiders of the Lost Ark?

The Famous Indiana Jones Fly In Belloq's Mouth Scene.  Did It Really Happen? I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in  Raiders of the Lost Ark ?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth? I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack. Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with  and settled 'flygate:' This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of th

Explaining That "Weird" Cut In Poltergeist. Read The Missing Scene

Why Is There A Strange Cut In The 1982 Horror Classic, Poltergeist? If you're a fan of the 1982 Horror classic, Poltergeist then you will be very familiar with that "weird" cut in the movie.  It's 32 minutes and 47 seconds in to the movie and the scene is where Diane is explaining the strange phenomenon that is happening in the kitchen.  First, she shows to Steve a chair scraping across the floor all on its own then she does the same with Carol Anne.  Steve leans up against the kitchen wall and is completely shocked at what just happened.  It's at this point Diane starts to explain the sensation of being pulled and then...A very abrupt cut.  One moment we are listening to Diane and suddenly it cuts to Diane and Steve at their next door neighbours door.  Why the sudden cut?  It's on the VHS, DVD, Blu-Ray and even the streaming versions.  Why does this awful and weird cut exist in the movie, Poltergeist?  Watch the clip below to see the cut: Well, the ans
