Carrie Fisher, star of insipid Star Wars – another leftist druggie alky icon dies, the world mourns
More famous for being a drugged out slut than a movie star (seeing as she was only known for one role in 3 different movies).
Her other best known role was a cameo in Blues Bros. How sad is that?
So Carrie Fisher is dead. It’s so tragic, it’s almost as if that guy who played Lou Skywalker died. Think of all the great work they had in front of them, doing more cameos in Star Wars movies (playing the only roles they ever have, talk about type-casting).
I fail to see why everyone is so amazed at the fact that Baby Boomer icons, who are famous for being druggie/alcoholic/promiscuous and just generally bad people like Bowie, Prince, Glen Frey, Carrie Fisher, George Michael etc etc. who are also reaching their 50s-60s are dying. Had they lived healthy lives, they probably would have lived until their 70s-80s but it’s already amazing they lived as long as they did. They damaged their bodies irrevocably so now they are paying the price. What is the big amazing deal?
I’m also kind of irritated at the canonization of these people and everyone acting like it’s a huge tragedy and loss for humanity they died. Nearly 100% of the high-profile celebs who died this year did their best (or ONLY in the case of people like Fisher) work decades ago and they had nothing left to offer us. John Lennon probably had some great music left in him: that was a tragedy. McCartney (and I’m a lifelong fan) hasn’t put out anything listenable in 30 years (although I kinda like parts of Flaming Pie, from 20+ years ago) and his death wouldn’t exactly put a hole in our collective body of future entertainment, tragic as it might be for anyone to die.
It’s like all these celebs dying (and I don’t really think 2016 has been any worse than any other year) gives Boomers a chance to relive their youth when these people actually meant something and they are actually mourning their own coming death, so all this wallowing in gloom is just wankery. Not one of these celebs who died in 2016 will change my life, or probably yours, one whit. People die, there are a lot more worthy people to mourn than some drugged out, spoiled, asinine, full of herself leftist like Fisher who is known for one role she repeated in 3 different movies, woodenly. Get some better heroes, people.
