Roundup: Star Wars is 40 today

I’ll be honest: I’m not really feeling much of the 40th Anniversary hullabaloo. (It’s… Okay. I guess? But aside from The Last Jedi stuff, much of it feels same-old-same-old to me.) But here are a few highlights:

→ io9 has debuted the Poe Dameron scale, the “ultimate Star Wars name-ranking system.” It made me giggle, so it must be worth your time.

→ Time has pictures of Star Wars fans from back in the day, including several women and girls.

→ Wired ranks Star Wars hair, a topic near and dear to my heart. Demerits for not giving the Padawan braid a solo entry, though they do at least call it “gross.” (It is.)

→ StarWars.com has a ton of stuff, naturally, all gathered on their own little page. (I enjoyed the anniversary poster retrospective.) The Star Wars Show interviewed Tim Zahn yesterday, that was nice.

→ And finally, props to The Hollywood Report for tracking down Laurie Goode, the stormtrooper who hit his head.

Our BNFs can beat up your BNFs, but do they have the buns to be Princess Leia?

IGN lists their top ten cool Star Wars nerds. Honorees include Conan O’Brien, Seth Green, Kevin Smith, Samuel L. Jackson and… Oh, screw it, go read.

In other list news, Princess Leia’s buns top movie hairdo poll, beating out Marge Simpson, Audrey Herburn and John Travolta. That, my friends, is cultural permanence.
