Goodbye Carrie Fisher

I grieve for what she didn’t get a chance to do. In the next few days we are going to get flooded with people talking about Carrie Fisher. She made such an impression, I can’t even imagine. I realized I’d like to search Google for some good pictures of Carrie Fisher so that led to a blog post! One of the reasons why I loved Episode VII: The Force Awakens so much is that Carrie Fisher came back to Hollywood, she wasn’t young or pretty or skinny enough. She just was. And the scene where GENERAL Leia hugs Rey? I’ve always seen it as them making a connection, immediately. Kind of the way Chewie and Rey seem to make a connection when they are in the cockpit of the Falcon together.

I know/knew of Carrie Fisher’s work/advocacy for mental illness and always meant to look into one of her books but somehow never did. Priorities? Being too busy? I’ll probably get one now. I’m glad to know that filming on Star Wars Episode VIII was finished before Carrie’s death. That’s something at least. I’m sure I’ll be a mess when we go see it in theaters next year.

Now I’ll just rely on pictures being “worth a 1000 words” and leave it at that. I know, there could be tons more pictures. The first picture is the most powerful because it bridges generations.

Going to miss Alan Rickman

When I saw the breaking news on my phone this morning I think I blurted something like “Well DAMMIT!”

If you search google for Alan Rickman images, you find a ton of head shots and very few memes. The lack of memes is interesting. You gotta dig around to find memes and still I didn’t find very many. This one is good though!asparagus alan rickman




Young Alan Rickman is definitely easy on the eyes.
