Our Only Hope

The Princess is Dead. Long Live the Princess.

From Hollywood Royalty to Galactic Royalty twice-over. Subversive as a Damsel in Distress (as well as real life). Leader of a Rebellion but at times unable to keep her own body from rebelling against her.

Carrie Fisher got through it all with an impish grin and a dignity that didn't always match her actions.

The Star Wars Saga has seen many of its great collaborators pass on over the years, one all too recently in fact. But this? To a Star Wars fan, this is the equivalent of losing a Beatle.

The Force will be with you, Carrie, always.

The Twelve Lists of Listmas

Tonight is both Christmas Eve and the First Night of Hannukah. So here are Twelve new and updated Lists  of my favorite things because if anyone is still reading after the various long periods of silence knows, it's that I'm self-indulgent like that.

Plus, I'd like to keep up for posterity how things have changed, even if its as minuscule as  slight reordering.
