The Star Wars Song (This is Star Wars)

Here is the final song in my Star Wars Christmas Song Trilogy. Episode VI: The Star Wars Song (This is Star Wars)

Star Wars Christmas Song Trilogy

So…I  wrote these 5 years ago. Just biding my time till the right opportunity came around to record and share. And about a week before I’m ready to release… James Corden of The Late Late Show and Chris Hardwick of Nerdist release this together…

Imagine my immediate palm in the face. But I promise…this was written so long ago! And hey…let’s be honest, James should probably hire me to be on his musical writing staff! I could help! 😉

I hope you enjoy both James Corden/Chris Hardwick and my version of The Star Wars Song…

Once again I gotta thank the team that helped me do this…

Kevin Porter from Flash Grove Music for recording, mixing, arranging and all manner of music magic!

Jeremy Twachtman from Hallelujah Productions for making my vid for me!

Jessica Eriksen from Blue Moon Photography for taking all my promo pictures!

If you missed the other episodes of my song trilogy make sure to check out Leia, It’s Cold Outside and God Rest Ye, Merry Stormtroopers!

Don’t forget to share and like and pass it on. But most of all…Have yourself a Nerdy Little Christmas!!!

Leia, It’s Cold Outside

If God Rest Ye, Merry Stormtroopers was this nerd’s answer to Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope (and if you missed it…CLICK HERE) then Leia, It’s Cold Outside would be my answer to Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back. I wonder what could possibly be coming tomorrow to a YouTube near you!

Enjoy and an even Merrier Christmas to you than yesterday!!

Make sure to share it if you like what you hear!  Help me (insert your name) you’re my only hope…

God Rest Ye, Merry Stormtroopers

5 years ago I wrote some nerdy Christmas Carols for my family…

I always dreamed of recording them one day and this fall while I was out in California, a reunion with an old friend started me down the path to seeing that dream realized.
Thanks to Kevin Porter of Flash Grove Music for interpreting my vision and making it a reality!
Thanks to Jessica Eriksen of Blue Moon Photography for helping me with the photoshoot!
And of course thanks to my brother, Jeremy Twachtman, who in the final hour was able to get a video ready so fast my head may have spun!

It takes a village to realize a dream…
Merry Christmas, enjoy and if you like it pass it on!!

If Weird Al and Taylor Swift had a love child…it would be me! (Let that sink in for a moment…)

A Full Accounting of Eastbank Family Christmas: Star Wars Edition

As previously mentioned, in my family, we celebrate with a bit more pizazz than your average Joe. We vote the previous year on what our theme will be. This year was Star Wars. The ultimate theme. All of us have a pretty even love of it. (Except my Grandma, but even she got in the spirit) Then throughout the year we all individually research who we want to be and start claiming characters. This process can be viewed at www.sterlinghutchinson.com/christmas

When it comes to the day itself we all show up to my Granny’s house in full costume and resume Christmas as usual. Including breakfast, stockings, presents, pictures and videos in front of the green screen and a new tradition… the singing of the themed carols. Yours truly penned a few Star Wars Christmas Carols. ie: “Leia, It’s Cold Outside”  “God Rest Ye Merry Stormtroopers” “O Jedi Knight” and countless others.

This year we had some extra joiners. Non family members who were just interested in the phenomenon and wanted to be apart of it. So take a look at the photos here and if you’d like to join next year just remember two things: 1. The theme is going to be Lord of the Rings and 2. Costumes are not a suggestion… they are mandatory!
