Carrie is one with the force and the force is with her.
Goodnight, sweet Princess, / and flights of X-wings guide thee to thy rest.
It’s like some invisible star of death is aligning in the Earth’s horoscope.
My second favorite role of hers.
Seems like it’s already landed.
Carrie Fisher, best known for her work in Under the Rainbow, Blues Brothers, The 'Burbs, and a couple of genre movies largely ignored by the critics.
Godspeed, Carrie. You have become more powerful than any of us could ever imagine.

Lemmy, in true form, was Herald to the Apocalypse.
2016: Maximum Sad Face
Make that 11:59:60, 2016 have a leap second…
Don’t go giving it anymore than it has. Save that second for 2020.
Can’t forget Leonard Cohen.
And the rest, unfortunately…
What’s another one though, right? 2016 is determined to finish the way it started.
Fuck you, 2016.
I’m not sure how David Gest makes the list of important celebrity deaths. Seriously? I think you missed a couple that had a little more impact on most people. Florence Henderson, Alan Thicke, even Zsa Zsa, not to mention a dozen more.
2016 shot first.
I think that collage was created before Henderson, Thicke, and Gabor passed away.
Knowing 2016 the way I do, I’m willing to bet that 2016 would enjoy that.
2016 started with me being a pallbearer for three different funerals, and I find that I have begun to attend more funerals than weddings. So I’m wondering if all of these significant deaths that everyone keeps cursing the anthropomorphic year about are more a sign that we’re all just getting older and the important celebrities that matter to us are dying, but that if we were still in our teens and twenties, it wouldn’t seem nearly as bad as it seems to the rest of us. (I don’t have a teenager handy to ask and verify this, but I really can’t imagine an average 15 year old being too grieved about Leonard Cohen, Gene Wilder, or Muhammad Ali. Maybe Carrie Fisher. Maybe.)
If it really is a function of our own progress into old age, then, seriously, we really only have it getting exponentially worse in the coming years, so we all best get used to it.
