Carrie Fisher was a treasure .

I miss her .

And the bipolar and an alcoholism were just color to that vibrant personality.

Maybe her audience were bipolar and people with alcohol and drug addictions. The "Hollywood Royalty" thing of her parents had faded by about the time she was born, and what a grim talentless mother caught in a time warp her whole life. The big blowsy no filters personality might have been more appealing had she not had all the many other excuses.

I never found much charm or humor or insight behind all the faces of Carrie Fisher. There was no part of her story that ever grabbed - the one exception might be the stories of her turning over a guest house to various people she barely knew, for them to write, or rehearse, or just hole up. That at least is interesting and generous, more so than the "I'm so fucked up!" schtick.

She surely had her demons, but she was talented enough to give at least as much or, per chance, more in sheer talent to make up for it. A charmed life? Sure...perhaps. What of it anyway?. In life there are no guarantees. I'm sure she'd be able to add a few great script re-writes. Perhaps something off-beat at least. Now, well never know. This is how we can better define depression.

She made M seem sufferable by writing her speeches.

That took real talent.

She was best friends with Griffin Dunne

She really was. 2016 was a shitty year in general, we lost a lot of great talents. Bowie, Prince, George Michael, Carrie & her mom. I was crushed by the end of the year.
