Ladies and Gentlemen pray silence, for today is the 30th anniversary of the Star Wars Holiday Special – a piece of cruft that Lucas produced which makes even Jar Jar Binks look good.

There’s a decent LA Times article on it here, but I’m sure that there will be others in the usual places. Plus, you can always find the whole made-for-TV cringefest on YouTube if you really want to watch it (I lasted about 5 minutes before I had to switch it off).
