Dark Side of the Tauntaun



The Empire Strikes Back (1995 "Faces" VHS).


Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd, which I've already determined synchs up with Star Wars in twenty-two significant ways (click here to see how). I've also determined that listening to this album will make you feel like you've just consumed ten pounds of mushrooms, even if you've never done anything harder than Kool-Aid in your life.

As usual, I started this bad boy right after the second drumroll in the 20th Century Fox fanfare.


- The lyric "leave" in "Breathe" is heard as we see the Probot leaving the crater it created on the surface of Hoth.

- Luke is staring at the Probot crash site as the line "dig that hole" is heard in "Breathe."

- Right after the Wampa mauls Luke, the line "you race towards an early grave" is heard in "Breathe."

- The female voice heard faintly over the intercom in "On the Run" is heard as Han Solo is entering the Rebel base on Hoth (it totally sounds like the correct ambient noise for that scene).

- Obi-Wan's ghost fades away as we hear the line "the song is over" in "Time."

- The word "away" is repeated in "Money" as the voice announces to the Rebels that the first transport is away.

- "Us and Them" starts at the same time as the battle on the surface of Hoth.

- During the line "me and you" in "Us and Them": the camera is on Darth Vader's hologram during the "me" part, and it switches to a shot of Luke for the "you" part. Sums up the central plot of the movie right there, doesn't it?

- The line "forward he cried from the rear" is heard in "Us and Them" as the one Rebel guy commands his gunner to fire the tow cable from the rear of the snowspeeder at the Imperial Walker.

- During that one part that goes "up and down" in "Us and Them": during the "up" part, R2-D2 is being lifted up to the X-Wing. Then, during the "down" part, we see R2 down in the hole part of the X-Wing where he normally sits.


I'm sorry, but I can't think of anything to say right now. My cognitive capacity has been slightly diminished by all the farty synthesizer noises. Let me step outside for a minute and see if the fresh air helps. I'll be back in a few minutes to post the last experiment for the week. Hopefully by then I'll be firing on all cylinders.
