anarchy in you, K
A fuzzy-faced, floppy-haired yet still devastatingly dashing Keanu made an appearance at last night's Art for the Heart charity auction in Beverly Hills.
Wanda was there (but arrived too late to see him) and sent some pictures, including a look at the plates that he and Carrie-Anne designed.
Keanu's plate was pink and purple with a red anarchy symbol. Perfect.
I want it.
From Wanda's description the event was quite posh and lovely, thanks to her again for thinking of us and sending the photos.
I've no idea what the final bid was, but I'm hoping that the fine art from keanu and Carrie-Anne fetched a pretty penny for Coachart.
I so want that anarchy plate.

"anarchy in you, k" *hee*
So cool! Reminds of your art you were working on with your brother, I think? Maybe you could teach K the craft sometime. He seems to enjoy lending his artistic talent for the benefit good causes.
He looks devastatingly handsome in these photos…and I want that plate for my collection! I love the colors, symbolism, and design...perfect! Both plates together are a collectors dream *smiles*
i D I D pick up the plate... just thinkey.... my hands were on the very same plate keanus hands were on....
at least i didn't faint...but if i did someone would have brought our a tray with a variety of smelling salts to choose from....)))))))))))) i'd like the pink and purple salts please....
there were several bids on the package... but really it's priceless...in the several hundred's of dollars...
starting bids were at 75$.
(side mention for a plate by presidential candidate Kerry)

AND i had my picture taken by an offial papparazzi... just as i was sitting in the chair by the A plate!!!!!
(there was a beautiful side room with a fully set table where the package and i sat.... wedgewood blue fabric walls, deep bown walnut table. plates of love on gold leaf chargers and glasses waiting to be filled with some delicious alchemical elixir like coffee!!!!!)

the A is also part of a star
Why do you think of anarchy?
Another idea is A (Alpha) and O (Omega)- the Greek beginning and end.
This makes sence together with the Matrix DVD:
Every beginning has an end!
Yes, but the anarchy symbol is created from the old Alpha and Omega symbol.
OK, Keanu has an anarchistic background for sure.
Oh Wanda you lucky girl...
That plate leaves me......................
Oh Wanda you lucky girl...
That plate leaves me...........well let's just put it this way, it's my new background.
I agree with Nudel! Wanda you are the wa-One!! :-D
Thanks for sharing your pics with Krix and all of us!
I *love* Keanu. I mean, he's *so* cool. Anarchy. *mwah*
Thank you Wanda for the pictures.
And krix, I am so making it to a VM gig, one of these days.
Oh my God! I think Keanu have a great heart, but not purple, maybe a kid's heart, I think it with these pictures.
Thank's Wanda to get us closer of Keanu. That's incredible, I live in Mexico, and this is the only way to be near of this great man.
thanks for these wanda and krix!
Thanks for sharing wanda and krix. I didn't realize he was gonna BE there. I thought it was just going to be his plate. So close, wanda!
wow... it really was a nice event... i a m apsolutely appalled with myself for not getting there on time...
i didn't calculate correctly drive time.
yes, reminds me of art i work on... and love...
ok..... i i ii ii iii i iii ii iii iii admit it... i went to color me mine and make a plate and a coffee cup...))))
it's so fun! and you can really relate to the plate... they even have cute colors with number codes on them!!!
The anarchy design looks a lot like the way he makes his K's. I just love that he and CAM made their plates together. Thanks for being there Wanda and Krix for posting!
i don't think he has a goat's heart and his heart is not a goat, how about maybe its just a plate and the symbol is just an x,o,a,k and c. or random symbols created by the swish of a paintbrush. that's creativity. artists naturally create images just like we saw tim seelig do with constantine and the wings,he is not an angel but that's the interpretation. our interpretation of those peices are free not conforming to a regimented symbol, purely coincidental.
whoever his heart cares for, he probably cares for also. peace and love,
Maybe the A is for Art, as in Art for the Heart ... in a punk rocker sort of way.
He no way looks 40, does he? Loving the tan. Is it wrong that I find his belt and belt-buckle very sexy? Or if not exactly wrong, then, weirdly random?
KR's plate reminds me of something my Mum often says, a true artist's eye knows when to stop. It is really simple and confident. Does anyone else get that from it as a design?
[reference to now-deleted comments removed by management]
I really like the plate. And I think it's the anarchy symbol indeed: you Keanu are never the status quo, rock the Casbah. Nothing to do with Greek letters, anyway: meanwhile capital alpha is actually spelled like a Latin A, the circle which we use for O, is an "omicron" in Greek (literally "small o", meaning "short in quantity"). The symbols for "omega" (literally "big o", meaning long"), are a sort of rounded "w" in small letters, and an open circle on a sort of pedistal in capital letters, just like this: http://www.labergerie.ch/mediac/400_0/media/alpha-omega.gif.
[reference to now-deleted comments removed by management]
Anyway--the plate is so him. Reminds me of the Motley Crue cover of Anarchy in the UK.
interestingly upon further contemplation of the, i agree
great man's art heart plate (i am very happy to have been able to take and share the pix)
what i first saw was letters but also numbers...isaw the circle, triangles, lines, planes, and the heart which i have also at times thought of as a circle with a verticle line .... i also especially was impressed with the choice of colors and felt immediatly drawn to the almost magnetism of it...
and i also agree with bea_herenow.... simple and confident is very appealing... true artist is very keanu...
keanu's belt buckle tick tock rocks... babyeeze! and he doesn't look40 at all, he ust looks like a fine man to me... and i will add apsolutely brilliant...gotta take a shower now!
also loved cam's plate and took note of the two of them together...
creativity i s fun... artist of life... he could probably make art out of making eggs!
to care for and be cared for is one of lifes greatest gifts and blessings...
as far as alpha and omega... aleph ~ tau, a~z, beginning to end... all possibilities of words and numbers....
The more I think about this design the more I think it's brilliant. Its a simple easily recognisable symbol that can mean whatever you want it to mean and gives nothing personal away whatsoever, yet it looks to me like those are bite marks in the inner heart shape. Just brilliant.
Wow Wanda, so lucky to have been in attendance...both the pictures and descriptions are lovely. I love the way he donates his time and image to such charitable causes...he is a truly loving and caring human being.
agreed. just trying to say it could be anything, or mean anything. i think he looks great. "i didn't mean to look this way but i am humble" works for me. if he is forty, i'm just saying....i don't even know how to respond anymore,i can't talk.
am i speechless? yes. somethin like that.
Thank you for posting this. I immediately saw that it is the a~z symbol (and not a pentagram~a minor shift of the alignment and you get a completely different meaning). GREAT! LOVE IT. And teeth marks? hhmmm...that sounds familiar...Jasper Johns I think. :-)
Love. Definitely about love. Divine.
finally back at a cmputer that i can type at... although not my home computer...
well... i did click on the link krix posted (
and i liked looking at that link posted by breeze too...)for the anarchy symbol and it i s the anarchy symbol, but it could also mean anything...
a little bit of heart and soul
heart and soul
heart and soul...
he's heart and soul
Reading some of your contributions, I have the impression some people find difficult to accept this symbol is indeed the one for anarchy. I find very interesting what Keanuette posted on her blog (www.keanuholic.com, scroll down to the 3rd/4th posting) about this symbol, and the way it's usually drawn. There are a lot of prejudices about anarchy, because it is usually, and wrongly, linked with violence, which is a deviation, like every fundamentalism. Even religion turns to violence when it is dealt with by fanatics. But the core concept of anarchy is another, i.e. "I am a free creature". I can accept rules for a decent living together, but you won't impose your values and Weltansschauung to me, and you won't teach me what is right and what is wrong, and what I must think. And you won't tell me how I must live my life.
Yeah, that makes sense: Keanu is a beautiful anarchist, and you can see it in the way he lives, in the way he is dressed, in the way he likes gentle provocation, in the way he speaks, in the way he takes challanges, in the way he makes the unexpected choice. He's a bit of an hellraiser, but a very sweet one, one with poetry in his heart. Do you remember what he said about the way he reacts when things are imposed to him?
what did he say about the way he reacts when things r imposed on him? aww, he is a free spirit. i LOVE that plate, i can just imagine him painting it quietly in the pottery place. aahhh :)
"I react, I go against it..."
That's mah boy...
Yep...I agree...it's the symbol for "anarchy." I love it!
Please, forget about the "smoking-is-deadly-unhealthy thing", and the fact that the source is questionable. Just enjoy our beautiful anarchist's sense of humour: even it may be not true, it just sounds so Keanu:
"From Yahoo India, Washington, Nov 7(ANI): Keanu Reeves was recently caught having fag at the 8th Annual Hollywood Awards at the Beverly Hills Hilton, and that too in front of a huge "No smoking" sign.
According to Star magazine, he took a smoking break on the fire escape outside of the ceremony when a Beverly Hills Fire Department fireman approached him and asked him to put out his cigarette.
"Relax man, it's just weed," Reeves was quoted as saying.(ANI)
well...i've never studied anarchy and t's finer points,
but from waht i understand baout symbols, they are one step removed from language and designed to convey deeper meanings which can be interpreted many ways...
i loveactually had never seen this particular symbol and so ascribed what it related to in my world of agreed upn meaning.... looks like he altered it a bit and really, it probably means something totally personal to him...
frustratingly, i've been computer challenge for that last couple of days....
we can't ignore that smoking has effects. )
No, we certainly can't ignore the effects of smoking...especially the effects of "second hand" smoke. A lot of people say there is no effect, but studies prove otherwise. The effects of "second hand" smoke to non-smokers in the same room with people smoking are even WORSE! LOL!
...of course, what do I know, I DON'T SMOKE.
Personally, if people choose to smoke, or choose to sit in a room with smokers, I don't purport to tell people how they should live their lives. If they want to hurt their health in the process, well, that's really their business and not mine. Even though I am not a smoker, I hate the way cigarettes are heavily taxed because governments want to make money off people who "shouldn’t be smoking." Personally, I think they are making excuses to fill their coffers.
...ah well, it’s just my opinion...doesn’t really seem to matter in the bigger scheme of things.
at some point, everybody smokes cigarettes,and we all quit when our children get older, sufficiently in order to make a parental impression.
however, i don't get the weed thing, i am already thinking on the right hemisphere of my brain, the creative side, i don't need anymore enhancement at all!!!!!!!!!!!!!
this picture is quite the handsome picture, i must say. after, blogging about Keanu Reeves for about a month, i think he is just as handsome, since Bill and Ted.
i like his casual style, and i see why womean are captivated with his intensity. its been fun, acknowledging and admiring the distant star that is bright. he twinkles and doesn't shine, amazing how he manages to be one of the brightest stars in the constellation and his humbleness exudes from impromptu photos. he certainly has the ability to draw my attention and how, is a mystery to me.
philosophically, i only imagine his intelligence or any stars intelligence and their ability to be quite the geniuses. i find some of them interesting, with the eccentricity, to be very innately spiritual and i must say mysterious and intriguing in a unique sort of way.
i like their connective spirits. though, just a photograph, seems like they like to take pictures that allow their fans to connect to them, though the chances of meeting them are slim.
i now understand the essence of the star, they are almost light years away. i don't think its about the fame, you can be famous for alot of things but being a star and accomplished actor is something totally different. and my feelings remain the same, he is exquisitely handsome and the maturity is a compliment to his career.
jeez, krix, ferrets ferrets everywhere!
yes i agree, keanu just keeps getting better and better!
I still thinkey about this plate... these key thoughts come to mind...Unity contains all force
i mean he is the 1 and all... and even in this above very handsome picture he kind of reminds me of a picture of the 1 which has been described to me as a divine spirit represented by a single columm or shaft of life... the secret of the one!
handsome from the heart
and theheart of mind
a very radiant
a dwelling of love
the good key
thoughts and words and
concepts and letters...
i, um, don't want to offend anyone who smokes, but i have strong personal feelings about it for myself since i used to smoke a pack a day of unfiltered/filtered cigarettes...cough cough....))))
adn you defintely have to consider the parenting thing...
weed... hmmm.... well it's very green! that's for sure!
only blissful perfection, everywhere...
good perfect job you done, Krix!
I look forward to coming to this site each time I can spare the time and get my hands on an internet connection!
wanda, lizzie, relax: it's just weed
You sillies. I've enjoyed reading all your comments. Just weed? Saw that "news" item too and thought it was funny --whether true or false, thought it was funny. I'm a second-hand smoke victim (tobacco), so I always wish everyone would quit 'cause I know how it affected my lung development as a child.
Well, whatever His Coolness intended his design to communicate...exactly..., I think he definitely made some art there!
i just remembered a thingy about dolphins and brain stuff...
they actually sleep one hemisphere at at a time...
Do you mean this kind of weed?
"Veggie Tales - Larry Boy and the Rumor Weed"
(video description from Amazon.com)
"Weeds are taking over Bumblyburg--flowery, talkative, sunglasses-wearing weeds that bear a striking resemblance to the clichéd blathering old ladies who enjoy nothing more than yakking about the neighbors over a game of mahjong. No, these aren't ordinary weeds; these weeds are interconnected, and they are multiplying at an alarming rate. What could cause these wild plants to bloom at such a rapid pace? Why, they're just keeping pace with the rumors that are flying around town. Only Larry-Boy can save the city. Or can he?
Larry-Boy doesn't have the powers of most superheroes; in fact, his main sources of might are his suction-cup ears and an overeducated butler. Yet in this installment of VeggieTales, Larry-Boy's real skill is in teaching us that "God doesn't want us to tell stories that can hurt." In the lively series that has "Sunday morning values, and Saturday morning fun," a group of vegetables provides moral lessons for everyday life. Strong on Christian themes and light on seriousness, VeggieTales has enough humor for adults to appreciate and enough fun for the kids. While this episode may have us longing for the not-present Bob the Tomato and Silly Songs, there's still enough of the impressive computer animation and appealing story lines to make this a valuable resource for teaching kids right from wrong." --Jenny Brown
...now who is smoking THAT?! LOL!
i just don't want to know what weed is too many definitions too much.
krix,keanu and my opposite...
i just got sick of thinking...
