A Tribute to River Phoenix
I dunno why I was thinking of him today, but here's a nice tribute I found on the internet. I was listening to Ben Gibbard covers earlier and he sang You Don't Know About Us, a song by Tracey Ullman, who used to have a show that first featured the Simpsons. I searched it on YouTube and told Al about my fave comediene of all time (plus I love that show), pointed out the cast that were also the voices of The Simpsons until this day (and some of the cast members you can still see guest starring in some TV shows). But anyhoo, this led me to the movie I Love You to Death which starred Tracey Ullman, Keanu Reeves and River Phoenix. Both Keanu and River are my fave idols of all time especially when I was a teenager (plus Johnny Depp who was always on the cover of my notebooks in highschool - yes, shame on me, haha). Anyway, I remembered this other film in which the two guys had which was directed by Gus Van Sant called My Own Private Idaho (yeah, River looked really cool in this movie and I am swooning right now). Too bad he passed away so early. But do enjoy the clip.
