Yesterday, May 25, was Geek Pride Day. But even though I'm late, I can't let that go by without comment. Come on, this whole website is my bid to be named King of the Geeks.
Why May 25? Because this is a red letter day in the history of modern geekdom. On May 25, 1977 the world was forever changed by the release of Star Wars IV: A New Hope. No, I don't know why they didn't pick the anniversary of the first day Star Trek aired on television. Tough noogies, buster.
It's also not my fault that May gets two days commemorating Star Wars. May 4th is Star Wars Day. You know, "May the fourth be with you."
This year, we get to celebrate 30 years of The Empire Strikes Back.
