Watch Star Wars on command line via telnet

The other day while I was looking for cool Darth Vader wallpapers I came across an interesting article on how you can watch Star Wars Episode IV on command line via telnet. This is a must watch. The animation was originally created by a guy named Simon Jensen who seems to have loads of time, seriously  13,935 frames! it must have taken him centuries to come up with that. The animation is simply fantastic. Two other guys, Snore and Mike were also responsible for this brilliant work of art. To try it out just type this on the command line,

$ telnet towel.blinkenlights.nl

grab some popcorn and enjoy the show. Here are some of the screenshots to the animation.
