Yep. I graduated in the early 80ís - Van Halen was a big part of my sound track. My first serious boyfriend idolized Eddie - wore his hair like him and built a replica of Eddieís red & white guitar. Saw them on their 1984 tour. 😢

7pm showing for us. Like Jeff I have a mixed bag of emotions. Excited to see the film - but sad because the saga is ending. Mostly Iím sad because I was really looking forward to what was supposed to be a Leia-centric story. Iíll probably cry at some point. Iím such a girl.......

Good episode last night.  Now all the reunions are out of the way so the goodbyes can begin.  The episode ended just they way I thought it would, with the army of the dead lining up on Winterfell.  I also liked how Jon/Aegon was able to tell Daenerys the truth about his heritage and there was no real time for her to process it.  Could there be a situation where she needs to save Jon, but because of the succession issue she hesitates for just a second and it costs him his life?  That is very much on the table right now.

I know Daenerys didnít have much time to process the info - but she used the time she had to focus on Jon being the rightful heir - completely ignoring the fact that the man she loves is actually her nephew.

I'm more curious about why Rey is hanging out in the dessert with absolutely nothing around just waiting for a TIE to zip by.  I'm guessing its some sort of cross promotion with Uber or Lyft.

I just hope she checks his ID before she hops in.

I loved that they used Leiaís Theme - made my eyes water. Iíve been sort of dreaded the end of the Saga and Leia. Read somewhere that Ep. IX was originally going to be Leia-centric - makes me sad that story is not going to get told.  :'(

Debbie Reynolds passed away this evening from an apparent stroke. More likely a broken heart.  :'(

Anyone who knows me knows Iím a huge Star Wars fan. They probably know how much I admire Carrie Fisher, who was my first hero in so many ways. She was never just an action figure to me. More than anything else, Carrie Fisher was a writer. She was a novelist, screenwriter and essayist who was fearless in her depiction of her personal struggles. When youíre 16 and everyday is a battle, reading something like Postcards From The Edge from Princess Leia of all people helped you realize life was crazy and messed up and in the end, just life. She fought a lot of battles and like a lot of strong women I have had to privilege to know and work for in my life, she remained undefeated. Carrie Fisher was the girl, the hero, the writer of my dreams. RIP.

What Darby said  :'(

Carrie Fisher has always been one of my favs - loved her books and her interviews. Princess Leia will also be an iconic role model for me. As a 12 year old girl sitting in a theater in 1977 it was mind-blowing to see such a strong, sassy yet feminine and vulnerable woman. When I saw her I knew I could be just like her - which is just like me. RIP

She survived a dysfunctional childhood, drug abuse, alcoholism, severe depression, bi-polar disorder and weight struggles - surely she can survive 2016. While Leia has always been on of my favorite characters -I have always enjoyed Carrie Fisher's novels and wicked sense of humor. Sending prayers her way. May the Force be with you Carrie!

Can someone fix the link for me?  It's been a while.....
