Did I post about this already?:
Star Wars fans from communities far, far away are expected to descend on Montreal for a new exhibition â€” conceived and created completely in Quebec â€” about the iconic film series.
Star Wars Identities makes its world premiere Thursday at the Montreal Science Centre. The immersive, interactive touring show explores human identity through the Star Wars universe and its vast pantheon of characters.
After putting together a successful Indiana Jones show, Quebec's X3 Production decided to submit a proposal for an exhibition based on another classic George Lucas movie series: the space epic Star Wars.
X3 offered the most compelling proposal, said Kyra Bowling, Lucasfilm exhibits manager.
Star Wars Identities makes its world premiere Thursday at the Montreal Science Centre before heading to Edmonton, Europe, Latin America and Asia. (CBC)"We were very easily and very quickly persuaded that they were the right team for this project," she told CBC News. "Being in Montreal, it feels almost like a sister city to San Francisco [where Lucasfilm is based] in many ways. The creative energy is fantastic, so it's just been a perfect fit."
Star Wars Identities has wide appeal, she added. Everyone from diehard fans to parents with kids who haven't seen any Star Wars films will find something of interest, she said.
The exhibition includes multimedia installations and games as well as a trove of costumes, props, models and artwork from the Lucasfilm archives.
"We came [up] with a great idea to talk about the identity, the characters of the saga and we had a very compelling project. [it's] very interactive, engaging, with science, yet entertaining," said X3 president Jacques AndrÃ© Dupont.
A staff of approximately 350 people worked on the project in Quebec, from conception to installation, he added.
"We were really proud to be able to showcase the creativity of a Montreal team to [the] world."
Designed with an international audience in mind, Identities will run in Montreal until Sept. 16, before moving onto Edmonton and then to cities in Europe, Latin America and Asia.
The exhibit will not stop in the U.S., where there is another Star Wars touring show making the rounds.
However, because of this, Identities organizers are predicting that American fans and those living in neighbouring provinces will make a trip to Quebec this spring and summer.
It's hoped that an estimated 200,000 people will visit the Montreal Science Centre for the show, said Claude BenoÃ®t, president of the Old Port of MontrÃ©al Corporation, which manages the Montreal Science Centre.
A buddy at work asked me if I could help him find some obscure metal tracks. This guy loves the gazillion sub-genres of metal and this one cracked me up ... DARTH METAL
You can also download their 4 released songs http://rapidshare.com/files/44059666/Anchorhead.rar.html
Boba Fett and Obi Wan on guitars and a Leia on vocals doing death growls.
It is a period of crushing riffs. Anchorhead are striking their eight string guitars in a hidden studio but have so far won no victories against the Galactic Empire. During the recording sessions, Bothan spies managed to steal plans for the most crushing metal version of the classic trilogy ever, which has enough power to destroy an entire planet. When completed this ultimate weapon will spell certain doom for this insignificant little band, as the evil lord Darth Lucas (not really, we love you George) will probably dispatch thousands of lawsuit droids into the far reaches of space and sue our arses off.

The fact that his guitar doesn't glow like a lightsaber is a crime.
Or that they aren't using a Millineum Falcon bass;
