“Start To Finish”
Before we begin, tribute must be paid to a legend.
Rock In Paradise, Scott Weiland. Thanks for changing our lives forever. ❤
RIP (Rock In Paradise), Scott Weiland Playlist ❤
Much sadness with this passing of a true artist, and much love to Weiland’s family and friends. The world lost a great one, and we are lucky to have the lasting gift of his music to remember him by, and to dream to.
STP Forever ❤
Now, darlings, this initial post on “Start To Finish” is going to be regrettably brief, due to necessity and the onslaught of the holiday season. I had wanted to rewatch Episode 608, capture (& post) the many iconic photo moments, and celebrate the beauty, bravery, and delicious mayhem of it with you all, but such things will have to wait until after the new year.
I do promise that when the “Start To Finish 2.0” post comes, it will be super fabulous. We will get in there, loves, and we will rake the muck, muddy the waters, and hash all that shit out.
And, above all else, we will give the love to all the sweet peeps: Rick, and the gang (which now includes all of Alexandria), Glenn and Enid, and especially to Daryl, Sasha, and Abraham, who have driven up onto a motley biker gang, and a world of shit. Sending love, Daryl, Sasha, Abraham. Stay strong, stay together, if you can! ❤
Most of all, much love and mad props to Deanna Monroe (and to Tovah Feldshuh, the incredible actress who played this character to perfection.<3)
While I am feeling of touch of the ol’ Post Dick Guilt Syndrome (PDGS) from my lack of belief in the method to Deanna’s temporary madness in Episode 607, we all know that I have been heaping praise upon Deanna’s (and Tovah’s) badassness ever since we met her in Season 5’s “Remember,” after Abraham bellowed Chris Hardwick’s fave line, “Who’s Deanna?” and we TWD fans witnessed the first of many epic exchanges between Rick Grimes and Deanna Monroe.
Who’s Deanna? Deanna Monroe is a badass, full of strength, heart, and wisdom, who left Rick, Michonne, and the sweet gang, including her community of Alexandria, a legacy of love, of family, and of hope for a future…a life worth living, beyond mere survival…a chance, perhaps, to flourish, to finish the dream that Deanna and Reg Monroe started.
In Memory of an incredible mid-season finale episode, and an amazing woman, Deanna Monroe, I present to you, dear readers, the “Who’s Deanna?” Playlist, which features a bevy of badass female musical artists, as well as Louis Armstrong, who could always abide and hang with the ladies.
To follow the continuous worship of pop culture through the holiday break, find and follow barnfullawalkers on social media:
