Most of this week's content was Star Wars related, so if you aren't a fan I apologize. But it was really fun to put together and if you are a fan, check out any you might have missed:
Call me a sucker for Star Wars (your a sucker for Star Wars!!!), but my favorite video this week came to me via Pajibaand features the Star Wars: The Force Awakens cast with Tonight Show peeps doing an a cappella medley of themes. It was just fun and made me smile.
