Down the Tubes: An Elegant Weapon for a More Civilized Age

Down the Tubes is a (semi) regular feature where we, the SAW staff, share our favorite movie-related videos with the Wasteland. 

Please share your video recommendations with us at or on Twitter @SAWasteland.

If you’re a Star Wars fan, there’s a pretty good chance you’ve picked up a cardboard wrapping paper tube or broom stick and pretended to fight invisible foes off while doing your own sound effects. Vrooo vrooo vrooOOOOO!

And why not? The lightsaber is iconic and arguably the coolest weapon in all of Star Wars (sorry, Han). If you agree, check out the short video The Birth of the Lightsaber below and get the nitty gritty on an elegant weapon for a more civilized age.

So what do you think? Yay lightsabers? Or are you one of those people that hates fun and wants to see Star Wars move away from Jedi?
