Star Wars Musical Instruments

As far as I can tell the Eigenharp Alpha (which I was first made aware of through Uncrate) is defintiely one of the instruments being played by Figrin D’an and the Modal Nodes in Star Wars IV in the Mos Eisley Cantina.  Dorky enough for you yet?  Well please allow me to take it a step further.

I propose three possiblilites explaining the correlation between the Eigenharp Alpha and the Star Wars Band.  they are as follows:

1. Those folks at Eigenharp are just big nerds like myself and said “Hey, why the fuck not make one of those crazy Star Wars instruments?”

2. George Lucas is a time traveler and when he was making Episode IV back in ’77 he decided to have a little get away so so traveled through time-fabric to 2010 where he encountered the same Uncrate article as I have here.  Being quite impressed with the Eigenharp he decides to include one in his film.  Obviously this action has created inevitable paradoxes and I will blame said paradoxes and time-jumping Mr. Lucas on why there are not more dinosaurs currently about and also why Episodes I – III blow.

3.  Figrin D’an and his band mates were not fictional characters whatsoever, but honest legit extraterrestrials.  They worked out some deal with Mr. Lucas to appear in his film.  Unfortunately the royalties from the single Star Wars film is not enough to take care of their extravagent lifestyles and so they had to sell the designs to their unique instruments to some British company.  And BAM! Now we have the Eigenharp Alpha.

Anyway you decide.  And while you wait you can be all impressed by the bizarre instruments in action.

  1. I’d like to think it’s some odd combo of options 2 and 3.

    And time travel is not why Episodes I-III are subpar. Natalie Portman is the reason. She is the Jar-Jar Binks of those movies.

    • Agreed, but had Lucas not been messing with the fabric of spacetime, Natalie Portman would obviously have been Nat Portly, an obese deli clerk in Atlantic City, intsteat of a pretty little sub-par starlet.

      Also, I am awaiting the day you pen your book, with the recommended title of “Natalie Portman is the Jar-Jar Binks of Star Wars and Other Relevant Observations by Adam R. Gautsch” I’d read that one, if for the whole Prtman/jar-Jar discussion itself. You know that I am a loyal convert to this stance.
