Drake wuz robbed

The best part of the Drake interview in Rolling Stone was when he said he modeled his stage show on James Turrell's art. Having seen his show I see it. I agree that it's lame he got taken off the cover for PS Hoffmann. I fully agree addition is a disease of course and have seen it ravage loved ones. HOWEVER when you have 3 kids, have known the pleasures of sobriety for 20 years, and have every resource in the world to get yourself to rehab...I'm gonna say dude went out like a selfish chump. I can't believe it wasn't suicide given the amount of toxins in his system.

I watched Fish Tank last night to finally give Fassbender a chance to not be creepy in a movie and then the movie got super creepy and disturbing. The director, Andrea Arnold, is quite intriguing and I want to watch her other movies, besides Wuthering Heights which I kind of have no interest in as a book or movie. Fassbender says she works without a script and that she discovered the teen star of Fish Tank because she was yelling at her boyfriend at a tube station. This actress is a scrapper and very raw. I recommend it if you can stomach the disturbing stuff (not in a violent way but in a sexual way). Sounds like the director had a hardscrabble upbringing herself and that she draws from it for Fish Tank.

wow, my mom said there are 600,000 people at carnival. she exaggerates but she got that from the paper. I will have to go once, but I'm afraid of the crowds. They party till like 6 am.

I give it a thumbs up. It really affected me when things went wrong between those two. I really had hope that she would have one appropriate adult in her life.

It's pretty common for someone to stop, then after a long period, relapse and take what their last dose was. Instant OD.

I don't know if that's what SeƱor Hoffmann did or not though.

I saw the James Turrell show at, I think, MOCA in LA and really loved it. Hadn't even heard of him and then my friend Rebecca took me to the show. Now I'll have to check out some Drake.
