Running a sci-fi radio station is harder than you’d think. No matter how on top of things you try to stay, you’re constantly surprised by new discoveries. Take Chris Cape’s Mark Hamill Can Handle, for instance. This creative confection moves the needle on the Star Wars geek-o-meter as animation, LEGO, visual effects, and for just plain being a great song.

Here’s the video – be sure to pause the Krypton Radio music stream using the controllers at the upper right (or at the bottom if you’re on a mobile device) before playing it. Dueling soundtracks isn’t as much fun as you’d think.

Somebody had a whole lot of time – and Star Wars LEGO sets.

The video for the song was created by the extremely talented James Muxworthy. Music-wise, the song is not only well written with some nice hooks, it’s got a crunchy backbeat and it’s not either overproduced or underproduced as so many fan songs are, so it has a nice clean sound.

Here are the lyrics:

geek me, all-knowing
box-set stay open
May 4th, I'm hoping
Luke gonna be
hot as before
'cause Ren looks hardcore
and I don't want Sith running the galaxy

Mark Hamill can handle
anything with a handle
blaster gun or lightsaber
anything, he's the son of Vader!
but do you think it's a gamble,
like playing Sabacc with Lando?
to put Luke up against
the new generation of force-using bad folk?
nah, I got faith
you know I just can't wait
and I find your lack of it so disturbing
'cause Luke is a king and the Sith are vermin
churning in their twisted sermons
Obi-Wan was so discerning
but only Luke knew he could turn him
man, it's good that he's returning!

geek me, all-knowing
box-set stay open
May 4th, I'm hoping
Luke gonna be
hot as before
'cause Ren looks hardcore
and I don't want Sith running the galaxy

my May 4th musings…
when the good guys are losing
the hope still lives on,
that's "Empire Strikes Back" proven
Rebels are the ones who keep choosing
to do good when the galaxy's not grooving
and we should back them to stop Ren
but hey what do I know?
I'm just a super fan with a flow
Star Wars freak, and might explode
In the cinema when those trumpets blow
and the yellow writing fills my soul
Imma cry tears, scream and lose control
Carrie fishing for a foe, to fight with that lightsaber glow
rumour has it that Kylo
is taking over sand and snow

geek me, all-knowing
box-set stay open
May 4th, I'm hoping
Luke gonna be
hot as before
'cause Ren looks hardcore
and I don't want Sith running the galaxy
don't want Sith running the galaxy
geek me, all-knowing
box-set stay open
May 4th, I'm hoping
Luke gonna be
hot as before
'cause Ren looks hardcore
and I don't want Sith running the galaxy (X2)

don't want Sith running the galaxy

Written, performed, produced, mixed and mastered by Chris Cape. Awesome song, Chris.
