Heath Ledger 1979-2008

I know, by now everyone knows but I was at work all day.

Look... there's actually A LOT to be speculated about and hashed-over in terms of what this means about certain upcoming movies and other insider stuff, but right now I just don't have it in me and I'll be damned if it goes up before the obligatory Oscar nominations stuff... which, given this, I'm ALSO in no real mood to do right now. Yeah, the buildup-to and ultimate reception-of a certain huge blockbuster movie are now going to be drastically altered, and some poor guys in a certain studio's marketing department are right now both sweating bullets and feeling horribly awkward and guilty about it. You know it, I know it. But honestly I just don't feel right about even considering any of it. The whole thing just plain SUCKS.

He wasn't even 30 years old. He'd just started to show the potential a major talent taking shape. More importantly, he had a 2 year-old daughter. What a depressing fucking waste.

after seeing the joker make up, i can't help but see (and wonder how many others might draw) the parallels with "the crow". they were even the same age.
the really sad part is all the filth-mongers trying to dig up dirt on a decent and talented guy.
