for reasons unexplained she loved the monkeyman


A couple of things are getting annoying when it comes to the blogging.

One is that I'm coming up on nearly two-thousand freaking entries and frankly, the clever-title well runs a little dry some days. So rather than wrack my brain, you'll be getting random lyrics from time to time. I'll try and make them tangentially relevant somehow, but no promises. Especially before I've had my morning redbull. Of course, there's always bonus secret cool points for knowing the song.

The other thing, of course, is that it's such a slow time for news. Google and Yahoo alerts have so much noise to signal I can't stand it. The ferret thing was cute, but for the most part, it's a stretch. Every weekday, I faithfully check the script sales website to see if he's got a new project announced. Or maybe an update on an old one.

I think this feeling is what the word "bupkiss" was invented for.

There certainly are some interesting films being pitched out there, though.
I'm interested to hear about the Edie Sedgwick film (wasn't Molly Ringwald going to do her bio? did that ever happen?). The Untitled Miniature Golf flick? Not so much.

Good grief. "A-Team", "Dallas" AND "Miami Vice" movies. They really are running out of ideas in Hollywood.

There are a few ideas up there that I could certainly picture Keanu in, just for fun. I'd like to see him in another comedy, although "Hip Hop Nanny" is probably not a good match. I guess I'll keep holding out for "Bill and Ted III".

I hope Keanu is enjoying this break. He certainly deserves it after his non-stop schedule for the past several years.

So the thing to do is make the most of it, I guess. I've actually gotten a lot done in this free time. Bassplaying, shredding, laundry. The fun never ends.

Go me. I even managed to not only vote early this year, but I took some time on a couple afternoons to read up on the candidates and issues before I did it. The internets make it really easy to do that you know.*wink*

Anyway, I might be a little off-topic more often these days, but if you keep reading, I'll keep blogging.

well there IS at least one unique script SOMEWHERE in his in-box (wink). hopefully it's something good. (smile)

I'd be very disappointed if Keanu 'n' Alex don't do Bill & Ted III.

Keanu has to do more comedy [him goofing off, not the straight guy]. I love it when he's a bit zany.

'bupkiss' LOL

Tweeter and the Monkeyman, Traveling Wilburys I, ha!

... oh, and congrats on the list of entries -
you don't want us to do a recount, do you?
Please keep blogging - I'll keep reading, promise!
Go you!

Niobe gets it, & the VMs are covering that one next gig!

I agree Nettie, something physical, zany and NOT a romcom.

Amphora *wink* (I'm still catching up)

We will always read as long as you keep on blogging.. I haven't stopped.. I just have decided to do a blog on a very difficult subject.. ROB :) he's hard to come by with info and pics. and becky isn't doing much.. I only get about 2 visitors that post.. don't know if any read.. so if anyone decides to post or read.. the more the merrier.. and If I get a good thing going with the fans.. I may do contests again as I did with MY Happy Ending site..

hugs and God bless your friend

There may be little news, but never a dull moment here Krix! "Bupkis"...I love that word LOL!

Bill and Ted III...I hope he does it. I love him in a comedy :-)

Posted by: Lizzie on October 22, 2004 01:04 PM

I don't think Bill and Ted III is a good idea. It's been way too long and Keanu would have to deal with all the crap again about him beind Ted in real life. I'd love to see him and Sandy do some zany stuff together rather than being scared for their lives. LOL That would be awesome!

Posted by: Joanna on October 22, 2004 04:11 PM

forward...how about the life of a famous star, the real story. a real juicy script about somebody we want to know about, something he could sink his teeth into. ilike to see him in dramatic roles, i think a drama, and then Bill and Ted III because hasn't been almost 20 years since the first installments. After Constantine definately a drama, cause he's hot right now, the grim reaper thing might be a little overrated...

I'm reading krix no matter what she's writing about. That Keanu dude she goes on about is awesome and cute, but krix is fab, so I'm here for the long run. ;)

*smiles the relaxed smile of someone who's totally confident she's passed her stats final*

Posted by: Zen on October 22, 2004 04:58 PM

Yay Zenny, my genius friend!

Posted by: krix on October 22, 2004 05:01 PM

See, this one of the reasons krix is so fab. *beams*

Posted by: Zen on October 22, 2004 05:21 PM

girl, haven't you figured out that keanu is just a plus to your blog????

Posted by: tess on October 22, 2004 05:39 PM

I might not always comment but I do read your blog so keep on bloggin'!

Posted by: audy on October 22, 2004 06:24 PM

i might shock krix and fellow keanu lovers...what's a blog? ooh i'm no computer laureate however, i understand her interesting and innovative website.

Posted by: kyss on October 22, 2004 07:11 PM

Go Krix!! If you keep blogging, I bet we'll all keep reading. Who can help it? :-)

I am shrivelling waiting for the release of something, too. But he does deserve the down time. We'll gain strength from each other. Or is that the cold medicine talking? Nah, I'm pretty sure ...zzzz

Posted by: Tawny on October 22, 2004 07:57 PM

this is a blog.
blog is short for weblog, a journal-type website.

Posted by: krix on October 22, 2004 08:01 PM

Like I've said before, you've got great blog-mates Krix...keep on bloggin'!

...oh, and Zen...congratulations on passing your stats final ;-)

Posted by: lizzie on October 22, 2004 08:54 PM

Thanks lizzie, but I haven't "officially" passed yet. I'm just feeling *confident*. I will let you know when the actual results are posted though. Because I'm sure you're all waiting with breathless anticipation. ;D

Posted by: Zen on October 22, 2004 09:03 PM

boah krix, you're such an 'intelligent funny angel on the block'!

...crez keeps on reading...

I really would love to see the man in a kafka-story.

Posted by: creezy on October 23, 2004 01:37 AM

Krix, I don't think Keanu is a plus to your blog, he's its soul indeed. But not get over-anxious to blog every single day: if he's taking a break, we should do the same. It's like in a relationship: you can't stay stick one to the other all the time. Taking time off is wise and good to renew the sense of yearning for the other, and this is true for fandom too. And what's more, you're smart and can entertain us with something interesting and positive, even it's not directly Keanu-related. After all, everything which is about human beings, good ones I mean, is about Keanu. So, do your things, keep an eye on Keanu, if you have time go scavenging in old Keanu material (sometimes this is so exciting, and surprisingly new), and you can be sure you'll get a lot of inspiration for brilliant blogging. Thanx for you blogging so far Breeze

Posted by: wanda on October 24, 2004 06:24 PM

I'm really late with this entry (what else is new!) but I just wanted to add that Krix your well is not running dry! The lyric thing is a great idea especially the "bonus secret cool points"!! Well done Niobe! :)
Just keep doing what you're doing and we'll all keep reading whether it's Keanu related or not! But if you need to take a break, that's ok too. :)
