There are a lot of Princesses on various forms of social media today, and not (IMO) enough Generals, so I made a thing:

I like that thing. :-)

It's trivial in light of all her other accomplishments, but this morning I keep remembering her in the Blue Brothers as Jake's vengeful jilted fiancee. A tiny part, but a memorable performance.

Her scenes had been shot for Episode VIII already.

I sorta want her absence in Episode IX to be a major issue for the characters. Basically spend the entire movie grieving and figuring out how to go on.

I mean who doesn't want to spend an entire movie trying not to ugly sob in the theatre?

This is my favourite Fisher role. She's funny, resourceful, tough and sensitive.

And, she greatly contributes to the film.

I somehow missed this at the time...

Carrie Fisher Gets a Laugh Even at Her Own Funeral [Updated]

Quote:
Todd Fisher confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter Thursday that his sister’s ashes had indeed been buried in a Prozac-pill urn. “It was a porcelain antique Prozac pill from the ’50s that was one of Carrie’s prized possessions,” he told T.H.R.. Fisher also confirmed that the family will be holding a public memorial for his late sister, who died on December 27 of last year, and late mother Debbie Reynolds, who died the following day.

[quote]porcelain antique Prozac pill from the ’50s[\quote]
Eh? Only 60 years old so it is not an antique. And, Prozac was introduced in 1987 so it can't be from the 50's.

I assumed it was an urn shaped like a pill, not an advertising item.

Also, how old do (g)you think something has to be to be an antique?

I've always thought it was about 100 years. I have a copper coffee pot that came from my mother's family; it's very old, but I remember my mother telling me that it couldn't be an antique because her uncle had replaced one of the legs. Now, given that she told me that in the 1960s, and her uncle would have replaced the leg circa 1910-1915, it is now, despite the new leg, an antique by my standards.

Any thing I could have bought new is not old enough to be an antique because I'm not an antique.

I don't know. Are you subject to frequent wear?

An exception to this rule is cars and other items that are subject to frequent wear—they can be called antique when they are over 25 years old.

25 years = retro
50 years = classic
75 years = vintage
100+ years = antique

Now you know.

I just have a hard time thinking of something like a 1993 Toyota Camry as an "antique", particularly since it's not that uncommon to see 25 year old cars (Toyotas in particular) on the road in regular use in California where rust isn't a problem. Or maybe I just feel like Richard -- any car that I remember being new can't possibly be an antique.
