Sometimes feel like you're battling intergalactic evil as you rush through the Union Square subway station? Seems there's a good reason for it: The I-Beams in the station exactly mimic the first stage of the Death Star level in the old Star Wars arcade game. This dorky observation is made cinematic at the blog Ironic Sans (to which the Morning News pointed us yesterday). There's a short film to demonstrate, complete with accompanying computer graphics. Interestingly, Leia's gold bikini seems to have been replaced by a very attractive garbage can.
