Tons of Heath pictures throughout his career:

Thank you Eric for posting the link.


I know it's silly, but I feel like saving all those pics on my Heath album. Somehow I fear they might be gone soon.
Of course I won't, but I admit I have saved many pics the last two days. I've seen them often before (and had saved some), but I always thought they'd be around the net and around BetterMost always. Just like I thought Heath will be around, you know?

At the Spring Street Natural Restaurant, a bartender who asked not to be identified said Ledger often came by in the evening for a drink, which he nursed at a table in the back. He didn't stand out in the crowd.


So like Ennis. :'(

Souxi....just put your antenna up, tune it to Heath's wavelength and he'll hear you loud and clear. He might even answer. You know I'm serious!

I still haven't heard it confirmed that there will even be a New York funeral.  There were people speculating that one wouldn't be held, possibly to avoid picketing by that monster Phelps (why couldn't the Lord have taken him?).  ::)

What you said makes me think "only the good die young". Which probably means Fred Phelps will still be tormenting us when he's 120 years old.

Sorry if the following sounds trite but I've been doing a lot of thinking the last couple of days. I've been thinking that maybe I have abandonment issues. 

My overwhelming emotion, once the shock of Heath's death subsided, was an almost all-consuming anger.  Anger at Heath, anger at other grievers and the cannibalistic media, but mainly, anger at myself.  I'm angry that I let myself be sucked into the Heath universe only to be dumped just when it was getting really good. 

The bastard seduced me with his amazingly affecting, open and generous performances. They were so effective that I began to return the favour.  I let my guard down, opened up and made an emotional commitment.  For the first time in quite a while, I actually felt something.  After years of emotional self-preservation, I reciprocated.  I mean, it seemed like a pretty safe arrangement, a real win-win situation.

All he had to do was keep making movies.  Throw me a bone once in while, an Ennis here, a Jacob there, anything I could sink my teeth in and feed on and just feel!  I was looking forward to him becoming a director, maybe mentor some young actors, record music, just keep on living (and giving). The point is, I had plans and I was in for the long-haul.  I was even looking forward to defending him when he got old, bald and possibly Brando-fat and embarrassing.  (Of course, by then I'd be at best, a senile old man in Depends trying to feel-up disgusted orderlies, but that's beside the point.)  Instead, just like that, he dumped me.  It's interesting how selfish grief can be sometimes.

I'm still horribly sad that Heath is gone, sad for Matilda and everyone else in his life who loved him and sad for all the movies he won't be in, but to my relief I'm much less angry.  I think I'll be ok.

Thanks for allowing me this therapy, people.

Contrary to what he and his people fervently believe, the Lord don't want him. 

Although, God does seem to have a wicked sense of humor, so He may let Phelps in when his time comes, just to let him see firsthand how many fags made it into Heaven.  After He sees the priceless look on Phelps's face, He'll quickly give him the bum's rush to Hell before he stinks up the place.

In SoHo, Heath Ledger was scruffy loner
BY MEHRNOOSH TORBATNEJAD and CORKY SIEMASZKO
DAILY NEWS WRITERS

"We were surprised, we never knew he was an actor," manager Max Barrsi said. "He was practically here all the time for coffee . . . always very nice with us."



WOW, is it possible?! LOL. Seriously, it reflects Heath was a down-earth guy who didn't tout his celebrity status...
