Blame It On Jackie

Jackie at Interactive Reader mentioned watching this last night on Twitter.

The Thing Called Love

Damn. River Phoenix was a great actor. Stupid drugs.

And now I really want to watch My Own Private Idaho:

Poor Dermot Mulroney. I really enjoyed it. Haven't seen My Own Private Idaho, either, but it's definitely moved up on the list. The early 90's are a bit of a wasteland on movies for me. I was just a bit too young for the good stuff. Thank goodness for Netflix.

Oh, I love that song so much. I ran out and bought what's-her-name's album right away.

What a delightful surprise to see the lovely face of RIver Phoenix here on your blog.

Damn shame about him. Cried my eyes out when it happened. Stupid Drugs.

I own this movie, see it quite a few times( I envisioned I was Samantha Mathias singing with him) AND I have the lovely double disc of My Own Private Idaho.

Good stuff.

Jackie, let me know when you're planning to see My Own Private Idaho. I'll see if I can get a copy too so we can blog it together.

Steve, so did I. So did I. Glad I'm not the only one.

Michelle, I still am so pissed about his death. And the great things he could have achieved. I can remember where I was when I heard; and where I was when I heard Kurt Cobain died.
