Anybody heard about a CD called "StarWars Breakbeats"? Music made out of Star Wars samples!!

a guy I know at NPR is trying to pitch a story about it and
Deconstructing Beck. Here is some of what he had to say...

The Star Wars Breakbeats have not been officially cleared, but the publicity
guy told me that LucasFilms is aware of the project and apparently likes it. I
suspect they recognize their intellectual property as existing in some form of
the public domain because it has been so widely accepted by the society. Beck
may be ubiquitous, but not Star Wars ubiquitous. The Star Wars movies have
achieved the kind of saturation in our society that Beck will never achieve.

...this idea might be worth pursuing in our piece.
