2003? Rawked.

it was a very good year

In the hype-proclaimed Year of The Matrix, I was happy to Take the Red Pill, but I refused to be spoiled or to be Warner Brothers' bitch.
I was, however, Joel's for the taking. Ultimately, none of my suck-uppery did any good, and the only way I got to the Reloaded Premiere was in my dreams.

You'd think the high point of the year would be seeing Keanu in person and shaking his hand, and while that was definitely not sucky, it's really just one of the outstanding memories I have of 2003.

With the release of Reloaded, traffic jumped, and I stressed out over bandwidth and down time. The solution was an upgrade and I can't express how grateful I am to you all for the success of the virtual garage sale to cover the expense and then some. Some of that surplus went to finally get a scanner which is fun to play with and also enhanced my creative output immensely, and some was spent on something I never thought I'd have the chance to experience...

I got to see Keanu Reeves play hockey. That rawked.

What else?....

2003 saw the end (no pun intended)of Ass Friday, but the beginning of the Keanu Mix project.

And speaking of music, it seems that the light from the Dogstar finally flickered out this year.

But, Keanu thumps on, with becky, and I've been very fortunate to be able to see them live a few times.

2003 was quite the year for Keanu as well, in addition to the new band and the promotion for Reloaded and Revolutions he shot Something's Gotta Give, and Thumbsucker and of course, is currently working on Constantine.

Ah, Constantine.
Thanks to Keanu being in this film I've not only spent over a hundred dollars on freaking comic books, but I've met some intelligent and interesting blokes at the Straight-to-Hell Hellblazer forums. I've also grown increasingly enthusiastic about the film, while growing to love the comic as well. Waffles anyone?

I know that I've missed some things so feel free to point out any egregious omissions or just your favorite memory of 2003 in the comments.

Most of all it's just been a great year of Keanu-luv and friendship.
I don't see how 2004 will be able to improve on this year, but somehow I know it will.

And I'm looking forward to it.

Have I told you all lately that you fucking RAWK? \m/

You do.
So very much.

Happy New Year.


it wahs , the site | from inside the mind of krix at December 31, 2003 01:01 PM .

Loved seeing Keanu's face on quite a few magazine covers in 2003. It made going to the magazine stands worth the stretch. My favorite was his interview with Arena Magazine.

All I can say is...Thanks. I'm in constant awe of your creativity, sense of humour and outlook on life. Here's to a year full of laughter, happiness, health and, of course, Keanu-dreams. All my best.

For me 2003 was awesome because I discovered you, Krix! Your sharpness and sense of humor totally made my year. GIRL,I LUV YOU! YOU ARE THE BEST.

This next year I only hope to go to LA and meet Keanu in person - whether in concert or who knows where else... may be one of our LA friends could respond to my e-mail and give me some advice as far as staying/going out in LA....thanks!

Hey Krix and everyone! Well, I was not a Keanu fan until just a few months ago when he shot Thumbsucker incredibly close to my hometown. Although I did not get to meet him, I know it will happen in the future. One of the great things of this year was discovering this site and how funny and creative and up-to-the-minute everything is. I know I don't leave a lot of comments on here, but I just wanted to say how much I enjoy this site and I come here often for everything! Thanks so much and here's to a great 2004!

Im glad you had a nice 2003 Krix, heres to a great 2004!! Keep up the great work on the site!!2004..Think Keanu.!!!Happy New Year everyone!! Take care be safe and in good health!

Posted by: NeosFF on December 31, 2003 02:30 PM

That picture is great! It just looks like Keanu doing his "praying hands" thing and reflecting back on the year. Perfect choice!! Happy New Year to all!! I'm looking forward to a new year full of continued Keanu-luv. Oh, and Krix, you RAWk! :)

Posted by: Lisa on December 31, 2003 02:40 PM

Yep, 2003 was the year of the Matrix and the year for falling dangerously back in luv with Keanu Reeves.

It was also a great year for finding out that there were such intensely awesome people who also thought that The One was Da Bomb.

What you do here, Krix, is so great. It is, was and will be a great joy to come here. Your outlook on life is so unique and refreshing.

It was a real pleasure sharing the adoration with you and the fantabulous buncha people who hang at Keanuvision.

You guys, Best of Luck and Love for 2004.

And Like Keanu, as time goes on may you keep getting better and finer! \m/

Posted by: Sunny on December 31, 2003 02:42 PM

Happy New Year, krix and everyone! Finding this site and all of the truly wonderful, funny people who share my obsession, sorry PASSION, for Keanu were just part of what made this past year rawk for me. I hope to share more of the Keanugoodness with all of you next year!

Posted by: Melissa on December 31, 2003 03:13 PM

Well, I just discovered this site a few days ago, so I have a lot of catching up to do. It's a great site and I hope to get to know you all better.

Posted by: Bethanie on December 31, 2003 04:07 PM

krix, Have I told you lately that you are a blog goddess? YOU TOTALLY RAWK! \m/

Like lusenkea, 2003 was awesome because I discovered krix and keanuvision. And like Carmen, I don't leave a lot of messages, but I thoroughly enjoy visiting keanuvision.

Thank you for hosting what is, in my opinion, the best Keanu website out there. Always interesting and funny.

Happy New Year to you and all the keanu fans out there.

Posted by: jankoe on December 31, 2003 04:26 PM

Wow, looking at your traffic graph reaffirms my earlier statement that I *am* a blog hog! I found you in September and (aside from August) look how your hits spiked dramatically. But then again, Revolutions could be to blame, as well. ;)

Seriously, I found your site during a pretty bleak time in my personal life and it provided me with a perk and a diversion from 'the real world' when I desperately needed one. It was really scary being a new girl and I was afraid it would be like I was crashing a party at first, but krix, you are so hilarious I could not help myself from responding! Everyone here has been so warm and kind and funny. I really do appreciate each and every one of you.

Well, I'm heading out now, so Happy New Year to everyone (especially darlin' krix!) and please be safe tonite. If you plan on partying, PLEEEASE don't drink and drive. OK, I'm hopping off my soapbox now.

Here's to a fabulous 2004, full of health, wealth & happiness!!! Oh, yeah....and Keanu Reeves freakin' rocks! :)

Krix thanks sooooooo very much for a RAWKIN Keanu site. You have no idea how much everyone here has touched my heart.

May you all have a Happy New Year and be safe tonight!

Posted by: Jess on December 31, 2003 04:52 PM

Happy New Year!

Let's enjoy Keanu even more in 2004.

To all of you... have a wonderful year.
To Krix.. I found this site just a few weeks ago and enjoy it very much so keep it up. Thanks!

Posted by: Saskia on December 31, 2003 05:12 PM

We love you, too, Krix - MWAH!!!!!

Posted by: Jenn on December 31, 2003 05:41 PM

Yep, they said 2003 was the year of the Matrix and I guess it was--for me. Neo did what Jack Traven could not--made me fall for Keanu! I've had the pleasure of "discovering" all his other films this year, and Dogstar and Becky!

But best of all was keanuvision, krix, and all the terrific people here! Massive thanks to krix for brightening my life every day and for inspiring some creativity of my own, to you all for posting, and a special shout-out to tyler, who got me here in the first place...

I raise a glass to all of you, wishing you a 2004 filled with love and beauty!

Posted by: bakednudel on December 31, 2003 06:38 PM is cool. Happy New Year Krix and everyone else here. *mwah*

Thanks again Krix for such a LOVELY and entertaining site. Thanks Keanu for your fine work, perseverance, and inspiration. I thank God for your beauty. I wish everyone blessings...pressed down and running 2004.

Posted by: heather on December 31, 2003 08:55 PM

Happy New Year for Krix and everyone! 2003 was a special year for me because I discovered Keanu Reeves. I was in love with Neo in Matrix Reloaded, and now I just love that wonderful, handsome and sweet actor. Keanuvision had a lot to do with it, and I thank Krix for this great site.

I feel that 2004 will be an awesome year for Keanu and for his fans.:)

Posted by: Ale on December 31, 2003 09:29 PM

Hmmm well like a few other's I am also guilty of not posting a heck of a lot but I truly enjoy visiting this site and reading all the comments and latest news in Keanu's life. He is a huge inspiration to me. There has been so many time's I've wanted to give up but when you look at the things he has been through and of course what so many other people on this site have been through it makes you want to keep going. You realize that in time (maybe not as fast as we'd like) things will get better as long as you just keep pluggin away. I wish all of you the best for 2004 and that it's an awesome year for everyone. I hope to get to know you all better this coming year. Gob bless.

Happy New Year krix and all keanuvision comment posters and visitors!

I discovered this wonderful site in June of 2003 and promptly went through the archives to read every single post. I read one month per evening along with each day's post until I was all caught up. I love the laugh out loud moments, the witty krixisms as well as the charming guest comments. I visit several times a day, every day and I go back to make sure I never miss a comment. There is a good feeling here in this excellent little site. I'm coming back in 2004. :)

May God bless each and every one of you with health, happiness, love and much prosperity..It's great to be a part of such a wonderful site, with wonderful fans/friends like yourselves. I feel truly blessed.. Thanks Krix, you all just RAWK!!
HUGS AND GOD BLESS your friend Janice

Posted by: Janice on January 1, 2004 10:07 AM

I'd like to wish all of you out there but especially Krix, a Happy, healthy and successful 2004! I've given up hoping for peace, and honest politicians/CEOs, among other things...
Every time I feel down or need a laugh or just a short break from the day-to-day routine, I come to this site and often get a good laugh out of your hilarious postings, Krix! I'm glad that there is someone like Keanu Reeves who seems to be a kind soul because many of the sites dedicated to him attract such a funny, warm-hearted crowd. Thanks to Keanu, Krix and the rest of you lot for often providing me with the chuckle of the day!
*hugs & cyber-smooches*

Have a blessed 2004. With luv from Nettie xox

Happy New Year to Krix and all the Keanu fans who visit this site! I wish everyone a splendid 2004--rich in laughter and wonderful experiences, and with lots of Keanu goodness to look forward to and share...

Krix, bless you for creating this site. Last year you had me chuckling/grinning/hooting with laughter while sprinkling coffee all over my keyboard/sighing and staring at yet another great Keanu wallpaper... So many memorable blog entries and pics that brightened up my days in 2003--thank you!!

And Krix, through you I met Julie! from Amsterdam. I hope to meet her in the flesh this year, when she's well again, and who knows... perhaps she and I will be seeing Something's Gotta Give together!

Posted by: Maddi on January 1, 2004 02:25 PM

*hand to heart*

You all are too kind, thank you.

2004? Bring it!

Posted by: krix on January 1, 2004 02:32 PM

You totally Rawk, Krix!! Many, many thanks for all the fantastic Keanu-fun you brought to my 2003! I love this site! You are the hostess with the most-est!!

Happy New Year!

Posted by: Tawny on January 1, 2004 04:23 PM

yeah, what they all said...i feel like an oldtimer, been around since early 2002. and i swear, ever since that first visit, i've been a regular here, checking in 2 or 3 times a day, usually. this is one cool site, krix, and you are one cool chick. 2003 was NOT so cool, at least for me personally, but it WAS interesting. 2004 is gonna be better!

Posted by: lori on January 1, 2004 08:41 PM

You forgot to mention how much you love me. ;)
*hugs* Krixy, here's to an even better 2004.
