We need one of these for reasons: Mike Marrocco built this homemade version of the 2007 Ultimate Collectors Series Lego Millennium Falcon from scratch. The Bethesda native started with a parts list he found online, then found the pieces he needed on Bricklink. Marrocco built this back in 2015, but it went viral due to this weekend’s release of Solo: A Star Wars Story. To Mike and his technicolor dream falcon: we salute you.

Chelsea was born and raised in New Orleans, which explains her affinity for cheesy grits and Britney Spears. An pop culture journalist since 2012, her work has appeared on Autostraddle, AfterEllen, and more. Her beats include queer popular culture, film, television, republican clownery, and the unwavering belief that 'The Long Kiss Goodnight' is the greatest movie ever made. She currently resides in sunny Los Angeles, with her husband, 2 sons, and one poorly behaved rescue dog. She is a former roller derby girl and a black belt in Judo, so she is not to be trifled with. She loves the word “Jewess” and wishes more people used it to describe her.
