i'm watching The Wizard of Oz

i love Judy Garland!!!!!!!!
Before Brokeback Mountain, I considered The Wizard Of Oz as my favorite film.  Now, they tie for first place, I guess.   If you are watching a DVD of the film it probably has a commentary track by John Fricke.  I met John in the early 1980's and we used to watch kinescopes of The Judy Garland Show at his family home in Brookfield Wisconsin.  He has become THE authority on anything Judy.  I have TONS of pictures.  You will find pics at:

Lean on me, let our hearts beat in time,
Feel strength from the hands that have held you so long.
Who cares where we go on this rugged old road
In a world that may say that we're wrong.

i'm extremely saddened by the death of Heath Ledger


i feel sick, i don't know what to think


he was my favorite modern actor
"He was very afraid of being hurt. He was afraid of opening up in case it was turned around and used against him."

I feel that this sad, sad news will have a very powerful effect on the emotional depths of the Sure to be Classic:  Brokeback Mountain.   I feel it will be easily as important and probably more so, than the  James Dean film, His "Rebel Without A Cause"   James transcended generations and I believe Heath will as well.   There are only a few of actors who died young yet they continue to affect us.  James Dean, Marilyn Monroe, River Phoenix and now..

Our Beloved Heath ...   :'(

Eternal rest grant upon Heath, O Lord
and let Perpetual Light shine upon him;
May his soul and all the souls of the faithful departed,
through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

AMEN~!

He was one of them, and we should have known it.
Should have seen it but we were so dazzeled by him.
He was James Dean, Montgomery Cliff, Sal Mineo, Jim Morrison, John Belushi, River Pheonix,
He was on fire and we loved the fire so much,
We never stopped to consider the source.

What is making me feel really strange is that I made vows as a Benedictine monk in 1979 and am in my 28th anniversary year (until November 1st).  To think a man would be born, grow up, and change my life in that same time blows me away.  Today is also the 2nd Anniversary of my first viewing of the film.   And how about the full moon....

I can't think straight, I guess I'm still in a state of shock...   (Jim Morrison dated a girl who worked for my mother's restaurant in the 1960's - The Doors have always been my favorite band.)

But like the people you mention above, he has joined that elite group of "The Immortals..."

well, sorry for the absence


but, i 've been busy with my school's play. I got the role of the Beast in Beauty and the Beast! yeah, i know! Thats crazy. I'm just trying to relax...just recently watched the Oscars, and they were good this year (for once!)


i was a supporter of Marion Cotillard! And when she won, i almost died.

I'm still shocked over Heath's death. and i nearly cried when i saw him in the Oscar's memoriam...very odd. I've been (sub-consciously) looking for another modern-day actor that will be my favorite. I really like Daniel-Day Lewis, and i just watched MY LEFT FOOT, which was amazing, and very sad/affecting. He won an Oscar for that, as he did last Sunday for There Will be Blood, which is my most desired movie.


haha, i keep on plodding along. I'm doing well, i guess. I'm about to write a 4 page essay on The Great Gatsby, which is a great book.


And for fun, i'm reading Wicked...i love it so far, my school went to go see it, but i was late in notification.    :'(


i'm a HUGE Wizard of oz fan, and i have been since EVER
