Carrie Fisher & Debbie Reynolds -- Public Memorial Will Include James Blunt Tribute Song, Gary the Dog
Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds are about to get a belated but pretty awesome public send-off.

Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds are about to get a belated but pretty awesome public send-off.

The public memorial will be held March 25 at Forest Lawn, where the mother/daughter are buried. The ceremony will be held in a 1,200 seat theater at the cemetery.   

One of the highlights will be the unveiling of a tribute song from James Blunt. James and Carrie were tight … she was the godmother to his child. Blunt won’t be performing, but Fisher’s brother, Todd, tells us the track will debut over a photo montage.

Also on the program … the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles, a dance tribute from the Debbie Reynolds dance school, and tons of costumes and memorabilia will be on display.

Fisher’s daughter, Billie, will be present but won’t make any speeches. She says it’s just too emotional to address a crowd.

Carrie’s beloved dog, Gary, will be front and center.

The event will be streamed live on Carrie and Debbie’s website.

Ficmas Part 5

It’s five forty-five on Christmas Eve and Chloe has never been more in love than she is at that exact moment. Standing in the archway of the living room, fireplace crackling pleasantly and the glow from the tree lights twinkling in her periphery.

She’d heard Beca singing as she descended the stairs, after emerging from the bath that the brunette had run for her and blowing out all sixteen of the candles that had been lit - Chloe had counted them, then been elated by the skewed reference.

“Let your heart be light. From now on, our troubles will be out of sight.” Beca’s voice reminds her of a chorus of angels. But she knows better than to tell her that. “Have yourself a merry little Christmas, make the Yuletide gay. From now on, our troubles will be miles away.” Beca would give her that patented eye roll and sardonic smirk, and call Chloe cheesy. “Here we are as in olden days, happy golden days of yore. Faithful friends who are dear to us, gather near to us once more.” And not really believe a word of it. “Through the years we all will be together, if the Fates allow.”

But Chloe means it.

Means every good thing she ever says, ever thinks about Beca with every fibre of her being.

“Hang a shining star upon the highest bough.”

Leaning against that archway, watching Beca stand there bathed in the light of the fireplace, swaying from side to side as she softly sings to their little, newborn bundle of joy in her arms, she’s never loved Beca more.

“And have yourself a merry little Christmas now.”

Opera Spotlight: Faust

(The Witches’ Festival - Norman Little 1912)

Faust is an opera composed by Charles Gounod and originally performed in 1859.  Faust has lived his life in service to science and has become disillusioned by life and his doubts that a higher power exists.  In his desperation he denounces God and calls upon the devil.  Mephistopheles answers.  This delivish figure offers Faust riches, power, and the woman of his dreams in return for eternal servitude in the afterlife.  Faust agrees and signs the contract which sparks a series of events that lead to the opera’s conclusion in which the woman who falls in love with Faust, Marguerite, is executed. To Mephistopheles’ chagrin, she is implied saved by a chorus of angels. The scene pictured is the final scene in which Faust, accompanied by his devilish shadow, attempts to save Marguerite only to have her refuse and accept her fate willingly.
