I saw the first Star Wars as soon as it came out in the summer of 1977.  She made an instant impression, even though nobody really knew who she was.  She will always be young in my mind.

We've had a lot of celebrity deaths this year - more than usual, I suppose (I'm not a huge celeb-watcher).  But the whole internet meme of this being the worst year ever because of that feels like another "First World Problems" entry.

The 21 Pilots song from that movie makes me want to shove an icepick into my eardrum.  The lead singer sounds like someone's impersonation of someone whining, and then the producer was like, hey, lets add the cricket, nature's most annoying insect into the mix too, because that'll be fucking delightful.

If someone is going to make a montage of all the dumb/bad shit from 2016, that should be the song they use.

When you get older, you'll realize that the things that are outside of your control are the things that frustrate you the most.  My personal life in 2016 was great.  Had a lot of good things happen to me.  What sucks is that everything outside of my influence has been absolute dogshit, which kinda tempers the excitement about the stuff within my influence.
