in no particular order


So, Keanu....did you feel any different when you woke up this morning?

Not really, huh?

I'll bet that being forty isn't so bad and that being Keanu Reeves at forty? actually pretty fucking awesome.

I hope you're having a great day surrounded by those who mean the most to you, and I hope that you know that the whole world is full of people that adore you more than you can imagine. Be sure to thank your mum for us, ok?

Here are Forty Reasons Why I Love You...

  1. The belly scar
  2. The indescribable vibe you radiate that fills any space you're in and touches everyone in it
  3. The bass lines in "One Thing" and "Denial"
  4. Your dedication to your work
  5. Your laugh
  6. "Whoa"
  7. Your eyes, they're better than chocolate
  8. "It wah. It just wah-wahs"
  9. Your humble generosity
  10. Your commitment to your shoes
  11. Your outside is lovely, but inside you're even more beautiful
  12. The way you look in a tux

One many reasons! :)
That is one heck of a list Krix! You have such a way with words! I was teary-eyed by the time I got to #2, then laughing hysterically at #18 (one of my favorite Keanu movies) and then teary-eyed again by the end!
Happy Birthday Keanu, you are a true inspiration to all of us! :-)

Posted by: Lisa on September 2, 2004 07:21 AM

Happy Birthday Keanu!

I love you because, you inspire the most incredible people and the nicest sets of fans.


Posted by: jeanna on September 2, 2004 07:34 AM

What more can I say??? Krix is right!! And remember: Men are like a good, red french wine. The older they get, the better they taste!! Stay as (wonderful, incredible, marvelous, adorable, fantastic, unique, lovely, keanuesque) as your are!!! Happy Birthday from Germany!


Posted by: Petra_II on September 2, 2004 08:42 AM

Krix, you are, as always, so right (and so eloquent)! Velvet wrecking ball: so dead on! I love it.

Happy 40th birthday, Wonderful Keanu! We wish you the best because we love your heart and spirit as well as your work.

Posted by: Tawny on September 2, 2004 09:12 AM

*raises virtual glass of champagne for toast*
"Happy Birthday Keanu! Forty has never looked better! Looking forward to forty more!"

You captured my thoughts in words Krix...only you forgot one thing..."41. Kissable lips"

...oh yeah ;-)

Posted by: shelz on September 2, 2004 09:25 AM

Oh, in no particular order - I couldn't believe that 'Whoa' made it only a place 6... now it's clear!

krix, i cannot wait until little Keanu will celebrate his 80th, I hope you'll find some more reasons then ;-)

Sorry Keanu, it's no champagne - just a red wine. But cheers, have a great new year, new decade, take it easy and feel as young as you like it - and keep on with your excellent work!

Posted by: creezy on September 2, 2004 11:30 AM

happy birthday to keanu...

special ways... special k

most excellent amazing list by krix and comments too! actually, really beautiful... he is so inspirational. )

i could say something about all those listed...but i think they have rules about that...
keanu turned me on to Gorecki's third symphony...a lovely piece of music

a virtual toast to keanu, if i may

Ladies and gentlemen, I think a 40th birthday is a good time to not only wish the person of the hour your beauty wishes on being the best ever, but also to thank them for the fun, joy and memories of the times and places past . And so as well as saying that the guest of honor looks in fine form, and the hospitality is magnificent, I’d like to take a few moments to make an important acknowledgement. KEANU, everything important in life I’ve learned in the last 20 years, I’ve learned from you. And I think those lessons are too good to keep to ourselves, so today I thought I’d share them with everyone here.

- see krix's list above!

- kiss the screen often
- listen to and make music
- walk to your own ryhthm
- hey... he rocks! i wanna be like him!
- study the grace of the crane

to the most kissable lips... in t h e world!
do virtual kisses count...? mwa!

keanu;-)'s smile = sunny day!
all the best - i ahve some special homemade cookies for you!!!! )))))))

Happy birthday Keanu! *huggles* I wish you good luck on your 40th birthday. ^^ Have fun!

Btw, I love the list krix!

Posted by: Jonna on September 2, 2004 12:59 PM

constantine rocks!!!!

Posted by: wanda on September 2, 2004 01:13 PM

I absolutely adore, love and admire your list! It's all true and #2 and #39 are perfect beyond words! Happy Birthday to Keanu!

“I want to be a successful actor and musician
but, more importantly, I want to be
a successful human being.
I want to be someone who has a
successful spiritual life
and family life.
After all, those are the things
That are going to last
And are going to matter.
Somebody might not remember
A song I’ve written
Twenty or thirty years from now,
But they’re going to remember
If I treated them the right way.”
-- Adapted by Paul Brandt

Some people have a way of living life, never losing sight of what truly matters.
A very happy birthday to one of them.

Posted by: Julie! on September 2, 2004 01:44 PM

Thanks, Julie!, for remembering the wine!

Posted by: Niobe on September 2, 2004 02:04 PM

Lovely - you have described him perfectly. Your Ode to a Belly Scar is still my favorite tribute ever. "Hell yeah."

Posted by: Chianti on September 2, 2004 02:19 PM

oh man, you said it all, krix. must have been tough to limit it to 40....his virtues are limitless!

Posted by: lori on September 2, 2004 02:48 PM

I don't care what I'm drinkin' Julie! as long and I'm drinking "to Keanu!" Drink up girls!

...oh, and you too Mikey2;-)

Posted by: shelz on September 2, 2004 03:32 PM

Can't forget "the way you put up with all of us" time and again. Happy Birthday with hugs and kisses. Once again Krix, you rock. :)

Posted by: irene on September 2, 2004 03:39 PM

*picks up her kir royal* Thank you Julie!.

When I first started visiting this site, I told a friend about it and I said, about krix, this girl likes Keanu the way I like Keanu. She admires him. She respects him and his work. But she wouldn't crowd around him to get an autograph or hound him for a picture. She notices the special things like his kindness and good manners, and also the loveable little quirky things like "the boots" and the messy hair. That's why I like coming to this site. It has that comfy feel. The list? It could be *my* list, but krix says it so much better. *gives krix a kiss*

Keanu birthday celebration at my house:
HUSBAND: So our little Keanu is 40 already. Seems like only yesterday he was chasing buses.
ME: *smiling eagerly* Do you think we should have cake?


Posted by: Zen on September 2, 2004 04:22 PM

I heart Mr. Zen...

Posted by: krix on September 2, 2004 04:26 PM

Oh Zenny... I want "a piece of the pie!", I mean...a slice of that cake! *giggle*

Posted by: shelz on September 2, 2004 04:40 PM


Wish I could give you the kisses in person!

Hope you are having a wonderful celebration with all your family and friends and have 100 more!

Love you, you beautiful man!

Posted by: Chabella on September 2, 2004 05:05 PM

Keanu, 40th years young! here still September 02, so, HAPPY BIRTHDAY dear, beautiful, amazing actor in the world. We so love you! Be happy, and still the man you are.

Kisses from Brazil! ;)

And Krix, your list is the best! Love you!

and in honor of mr reeves birthday today, i played some songs that i thought he might like if he were sitting in the car with me... like that girl penny in the article... but my speakers don't go on top of the roof...and i drank a toast to him at lunch with my mom.... virtual thought it is...

some songs i played for him were...

oblivious.. becky
mysterious ways..u2
right stuff.. bryan ferry (over and over for that song!)
washington.. dogstar
gift from virgo.. beyonce
crazy in love.. beyonce
calling all angels.. train
your every color..train
sympathy your a superstar.. pm dawn
secrt world.. peter gabriel
1 or 2 from reloaded

i also have many more cards to make and offer for mr reeves birthday... but as i was on my way to lunch today... i was thinking strong about today and mr reeves nd his birthday... and i felt something sacred about today... almost like a holiday....
it really effected a kind of zen like cards are coming and i think i'll be making them all week as a matter of fact...
all my love!

Posted by: wanda on September 2, 2004 06:48 PM

Julie, I’ll take champagne.

*raises virtual glass and clears throat*

“Keanu, may all your prayers be answered and all your dreams come true! Happy 40th birthday!”
