« I’m glad to know I helped you find your light saber »

Je voulais écrire sur George Michael, sur le côté injuste de perdre des stars si marquantes, si tôt (53 ans), alors que le monde va devoir supporter les conneries de vieux dangereux comme Trump pendant encore trop longtemps… et puis paf, Carrie aussi. Fuck you 2016.

Pour George Michael, j’aurais finalement juste eu juste eu le temps de poster ça…

"Dead" songs from dead artist on a dead format. That's very 2016. 😥😞😣 #minidisc #georgemichael #music

Quant à Carrie Fisher, si je n’ai jamais fantasmé sur elle, je trouve que le plus beau post à ce sujet a été écrit par Kevin Smith (qu’il survive jusqu’en 2037 minimum, merci).

The Princess stole my heart at age 7. Anybody who knows me knows #CarrieFisher was my first love. I thrilled to the adventures of #princessleia in the @starwars movies, but from ’77 to ’84, I was in love with Carrie Fisher herself. My bedroom was filled with Carrie Fisher pictures from any movie she was ever in (including Polaroids I took off the TV when #thebluesbrothers hit cable). I was jealous of Paul Simon when he was dating Carrie Fisher and wouldn’t listen to his music until they split up. I paid to see Carrie Fisher and #chevychase in Under the Rainbow nine times when it was in theaters (mostly because Carrie Fisher was in underwear in one scene). In childhood, I committed myself to Carrie Fisher without ever meeting her the way novice Nuns commit themselves to Christ without meeting Him. Decades later, I got to tell her this when Carrie Fisher and @jaymewes were in a station wagon on the set of #jayandsilentbobstrikeback. She was gracious about hearing it for the zillionth time from the zillionth man or woman who grew up idolizing her, but wickedly added “I’m glad to know I helped you find your light saber.” And with that, she stopped being Carrie Fisher to me and just became Cartie. That’s the Carrie I’ll always remember: the dutiful standard-bearer of childhood dreams with a the wicked sense of humor and a way with words. She didn’t want to get paid for her role in @jayandsilentbob Strike Back; instead, she asked that we buy her these antique beaver chairs. Her reason: “Beaver seems an appropriate currency for this movie.” When she was a guest on Season 1 of our @hulu show #Spoilers, Carrie curled up in the throne like she belonged there. And she did: after all, she was royalty. As a boy, I dreamed of marrying Carrie Fisher. As a young filmmaker, I dreamed of casting Carrie Fisher. As an adult, I dreamed of being as sharp-witted and prepossessed as Carrie Fisher. And now that Carrie Fisher is gone, I’ll dream of my friend Carrie – whose entire magnificent career I was lucky enough to witness, whose honesty made me a better person, and whose spirit – like The Force – will be with us always. Goodnight, Sweet Princess…

 

Les réseaux fourmillent de détails sur sa vie, que le grand public découvrira petit à petit et témoigne aussi de la douleur de ses amis. 60 ans, c’est définitivement trop tôt. Et moi, je ne sais toujours pas écrire sur ce genre de sujet.

:(

Goodnight, Sweet Princess…

PS : incroyablement, il parait que 2016 a été une excellente année
