speaking of mean....

WTF, E! ????

They really are egregious.

Great way to use the word of yesterday, Krix! I'm impressed. (BTW I voted NOT a robot! No robot could ever have biceps like that! *sigh*)

I guess they haven't picked up on why their ratings soar when they show a trailer of a Ke movie.

When Keanu said into their microphone "E for Egregious" all those years ago - they probably didn't get it. Made me laugh out loud. He's such a caution.

E = erroneous
E = escapist
E = exasperating

No need to go on - or is there???

Who cares, even morons have a day job, and some of them work for E! They're sad people, who pass their life dissing others' success. I think what Dante says in the Inferno fits them perfectly:
"So deformed has their blind life become
That they must envy every other fate.
The world will not allow a word about them;
Mercy and justice hold them in disdain.
Let us not discuss them. Look and pass on."
And we should follow Dante's advice: just a quick look, and then move on. They aren't worth our attention...

I was just going to say that they could E!at me.

Breeze, you're much more eloquent.

Posted by: krix on June 15, 2004 02:27 PM

E! for envious.

Posted by: irene on June 15, 2004 02:34 PM

did anyone ever see the E! Documentary on Keanu, where at the end he says E for... blahblahblah E for blahblahblah... and E for blahblahbah....?
Blahblahblahs are in there because I don't remember the words he actually used. They just began with E.
I'm sure you guys have seen it...

Two words for whoever wrote this item on E! "limited creativity"

...I'm afraid neither start with E!

e for everyday!!!!

Posted by: wanda on June 15, 2004 05:18 PM

i wanna day job with keanu!!!! ooooo!!!! can I brush your hair and make sure there are no cat hairs on your oh so adorable outfit!!!???? hand you a script or a book or a cup of java?? tie your shoe lace???!!!!! ohhh...i get it now... loving keanu I S MY DAY JOB!!!! better make that 24/7...o r i c o u l d do something e l s e 10 hours a day!!!!???seriously... though... from article:
"mouth slightly agape, eyes vacant"... are they kidding...!!!! mouth slightly agape - leaving millions of women breathless with anticipation and wonderment as to what the next words(whipsered or shouted) out of his mouth w i l l b e...or is it a.... what kind of chocolate can i drizzle on your lips and lick off t o n i g h t??? dear!!!! or perhaps he's showing us the value of thinking about what you are saying b e f o r e speaking it....hhhmmmmmmmmm.........
and eyes vacant...well...i d o n' t t h i n k s o!!!! the eyes are the window to/of the soul... and the brain(which the eyes are an extention of) is the touch down place of the soul, or seat of the soul as it were. It is impossible that people precieve what they would call a 'void' in Keanu not recognising that the so called void is an essential p a r t of the creative process... it's not nothing... it's no thing...yet... if they see 'vacant' in keanu they are merely seeing the truth of their own souls being reflected back to them from keanu's clearly advanced focus of being...keanu's eyes convey to me the fullness of beingness on many levels including spirit, soul, mind and a... a hem....body. or maybe he's just doin' a little drunken monkey technique....
(Monkey fighting style and sprite/
Secret training of Monkey kung fu
Lost 1. Step
Tall 2. Rope
Wooden 3. Table
Stone 4. Tree
Drunken 5. Mountin

The Shaolin monks also derived inspiration from myths and legends. The very famous system known as drunken style is said to have been based on the tale of the mythical 8 Immortals, who during their travels, were attacked while drunk in bar. In order to prevail they took advantage of their their inebriated states, to trick, evade and defeat their attackers.

Various degrees of drunkenness are demonstrated by different ranges of movements and expressions in the eye.

but i much prefer the 'cool breeze bass' technique as demonstrated by keanu!....
i know you girls will agree with me!!! ;-)

Posted by: wanda on June 15, 2004 07:12 PM

fuck E! anyway...i never watch 'em, they're the ones who are pretty -- pretty vacant...

Posted by: lori on June 15, 2004 08:00 PM

*sigh* such a cheap shot...

egregious! hee.

Posted by: Nudel on June 15, 2004 08:01 PM

Wanda, you lost me on some of that. But you definitely hit the nail on the head in saying that the only vacancy is in the eyes of those who can't or won't see the man behind the eyes.

Oh yeah, and which type of chocolate to drizzle on his slightly agape mouth. GOOD answer!

E-gregious, indeed...

Posted by: JeezLouise on June 15, 2004 08:02 PM

*yawn* Is this thread over yet?

...nothing worse than utterly self-serving publications.

Posted by: shelz on June 15, 2004 09:44 PM

I agree with Nudel and shelz. To accuse any actor of having mouth slightly agape, eyes vacant for the entire span of a 20 year career is not only a lazy, cheap shot - it also shows that they simply haven't been paying attention.

Posted by: bea_herenow on June 16, 2004 03:50 AM

Cheap shot, yes...but I'm digging the graphic...


Posted by: Tabitha on June 16, 2004 04:27 AM

E! just doesn't get it and sadly I don't think they ever will!

Posted by: Lisa on June 16, 2004 06:38 AM

*smile*...good point Tabitha

I've heard his eyes described as "blank" before. I'll admit that for a long time I couldn't see anything in them, but I never thought they were blank, just veiled.

You know, he's a little like that rushing sound that the world makes all the time. Even out in the country on a still day, if you stop and listen, you can hear it. Like wind blowing, or a whispery roar. It's always there. But you don't hear it if you don't listen.

Posted by: Smit too on June 16, 2004 10:14 AM

Listen with more than your ears
See with more than your eyes

Thats what he does - thats what others should do when they look at him.

Posted by: krissy on June 16, 2004 10:20 AM

has anyone of you also ever had that special feeling about his eyes showing all his emotions all too clearly like a crystal clear mirror of his soul....I often have the feeling that he kind of possesses an inner lid like some animals do, in order to keep off the staring gazes of unsensitive people who donīt understand enough, but still penetrable to those who do!
well...that is my impression about him and I had the most impressive dreams about his eyes especially....

So never mind the small-minded crowd..
love susan

ScrE!w them.

Posted by: audy on June 16, 2004 07:58 PM

blah, I really would like to have their problems…

Posted by: creezy on June 17, 2004 04:26 AM


I stop watching E!vil when they didn't even include Keanu as one of their 25 most eligible bachelors. I think they should explain their criteria.

Posted by: jeanna on June 17, 2004 06:01 AM

You know, Susan, when I read what you wrote I started to think of my cats. To most people, I suspect, cats are pretty inscrutable. But actually, once you get familiar with them, they are very expressive. I can read their little faces like a book now. I can see every worried wrinkle on their fuzzy foreheads, I can tell what every rotation of the ear means, I can see it when they smile and give me that slow blink. It really does seem to be a matter of familiarity and love.

Ke takes some getting used to for a lot of people. He's said it himself. He's an acquired taste. Well, once you "get it" you can see all sorts of things. Like those 3D pictures at the mall in the 80's that so drove me nuts, till I figured out the trick. But you have to have a bit of an open mind, a receptive attitude... not everyone has that. But then, not everyone likes original, unique artwork. A lot of people are satisfied with those cheesy pictures of wolves and deer that you can pick up at WalMart for $7.98. I guess that's just how it is.

Posted by: Smit too on June 17, 2004 06:48 AM

Yeah...it's a lot of people Smit...a whole bunch.
