... It's been a while

Hello everyone! it's been a while. Sorry for being away for so long. I will do my best to keep up with the blog and talk about random things!

With that said, I will leave you with this:

This is for star wars fans - Do you know how how the name "R2D2" came about?


When George Lucas was mixing the American Graffiti soundtrack, he numbered the reels of film starting with an R and numbered the dialog starting with  a D. Sound designer Walter Murch asked George for Reel 2, Dialog 2 by saying "R2D2". George liked the way that sounded so much he integrated that into another project he was working on (star wars).

  4. Is that a fact? It goes to show you never know how people come up with new names. I love Starwars IV-VI... the 'old' trilogy that is. You have a nice day now!
