We’ve spent much of this last week discussing the Star Wars franchise from every possible angle, but for people who, like me, refuse to watch Star Wars, it might as well be gibberish. At this point, for those of us who haven’t cared what happened a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, the biggest reason we’re unlikely to start now can be chalked up to pure stubbornness.
That said, I do have a full week off ahead of me for Christmas, and I suppose it might be time for me to cave and finally wat –– SIKE. I love being in the dark!
Anyway, for those of you who can’t get enough of Jedis, porgs and scruffy nerfs (I had someone help me with the lingo), here’s more Star Wars content than you can handle.

Her work is a blend of cultural analysis and service, covering everything from reconsiderations of low-brow hits like Joe Dirt and Nickelback to contemporary disability issues, OnlyFans and the types of minor questions about life like why baby carrots are so wet. She’s also reported on social media phenomena like “simps” and “pawgs.” In 2018, she published her 111-page undergraduate thesis on Insane Clown Posse, the Juggalo subculture and the subversive aesthetics of class.
