i am ledger


Saturday, January 26, 2008

I'm not going to pretend I was Heath Ledger's biggest fan. I wasn't. I don't believe in that whole, "I was Heath Ledger's #1 fan but I only realized it just now because he died" thing. I still maintain that if Eddie Vedder had died in 1995, Pearl Jam would be hailed as the Best Grunge Band, not Nirvana. But I may be biased. Eddie and I are close.

Anyway, regardless of my ranking on Heath's fan list, his death has given me pause. I've been thinking about the fragility of life on earth and about how unfair it is sometimes the way the cookie crumbles. I'm sad it had to be Heath... but then I'm glad it wasn't someone else, you know? It's harsh, but it's reality, yo. So, after a good 4-5 days of reflection, here's what I've come up with:

People I'd be sadder to see go than Heath Ledger:
Tina Yothers

People I'd rather see go than Heath Ledger:
Flavor Flav
Christian from Project Runway
John Stamos
Jeff Foxworthy
Shakira
Sarah Michelle Gellar
Brett Michaels
M. Night Shyamalan
Rascal Flatts
Jennifer Love Hewitt
Mischa Barton's Pants
Tara Reid
Smashmouth
Criss Angel

Tina Yothers?! Really?

You kill me. Kill me. (Hmm... bad choice of words, huh?)

Too funny...

I would love to bitch slap Christian, but it would be dull without him! How much time do you think he spend flat ironing his hair. I was thinking if that NY wind caught him at the right angle, he 80lbs body would be blown away.

are you referring to all of the members of Smashmouth, or just the chubby screaming guy?

tina yothers? that's a horrible thing to say to heath.

also, i will cry when sarah michelle geller dies. on the other hand, i cry every day over the fact that smashmouth is a band.

thirdly, i totally agree about pearl jam. although i'm really glad that eddie vedder is not dead.

I have no comment on the Heath situation, I have already spend too much of my time involved. I even walked by his apt. while in NYC last weekend. Just wanted to say hi. It's been way too long since I had stop into your blog. Ummmm, you look AMAZING in the pic on your 1/10 post.

Should I be concerned that Christian always puts a little smile on my face?
