God damn it.

Wouldn't it be wonderful if, after you die, you're welcomed into heaven by Harry Dean Stanton, offering you a nice strong cup of GOOD MORNING AMERICA?
Oh, fuck it. Can anyone tell me why I shouldn't be happy for Harry Dean Stanton? He lived to be 91, to leave behind a body of much beloved work, and to go out on a high point like "TWIN PEAKS, THE RETURN", in which he stole the show by singing an old cowboy song, and having a conversation showing some kindness to a neighbor. As far as I can tell, neither scene had much to do with the storyline, it was just David Lynch saying, "Isn't Harry Dean Stanton, beautiful?"
I'd literally just been thinking to myself 'Man, he looks a lot better/healthier in The Return than he did in, what was it, Avengers? I hope he's doing okay.', like, two days ago.
God. Damn. It.
Hey, hey you guys. Be happy for all the things he gave us. He lived to be 91! That's a fucking miracle by itself.
I'll drink to him tonight. A life well-lived.

“The great Harry Dean Stanton has left us,” Lynch wrote in a statement eulogizing the actor. “There went a great one. There’s nobody like Harry Dean. Everyone loved him. And with good reason. He was a great actor (actually beyond great) – and a great human being – so great to be around him!!! You are really going to be missed Harry Dean!!! Loads of love to you wherever you are now!!!”
See, I'm picturing him delivering that as Gordon and it just makes it all the more heartfelt.
