Devotion ~ Tidbit #8 Eugenia's Road Trip

Wow! Talk about a whirlwind tour! I will be savoring travel videos for day as I work my way through their itinerary. :cool: I hope you enjoyed the videos. :hatsoff: It can be difficult to find an informative and professional video of top tourist spots now that everyone has a camera. Some I watched ...

British GQ interview

Well, I am a bit of an innocent, I guess. When I first read him say he "worries about her", I took it to mean he was concerned for her well being. After all, he loved her very much and even when couples break apart, there must be some remnant of caring left. I thought that maybe he thought...

Devotion - Tidbit #7 The Short Story

I will have to read the stories by Coetzee. I enjoyed Waiting for the Barbarians and will need to read it at least once more before a film is released.

I didn't realize there were so many short stories available on line.

Devotion ~ Tidbit #5 Simone Weil

To learn more about Simone, her philosophies, and her legacy, I recommend watching the documentary and checking out the websites listed in the resources.

British GQ interview

I am glad to see him speaking out. Unfortunately, we live in a society where a man accused of abuse is automatically guilty of abuse unless he can somehow "prove" it isn't true. Later, sometimes years later, the burden of proof has been put on the accused. And even when not proven guilty o...

Devotion ~ Tidbit #4 Gallimard and Séte

I have to admit that much of the history of the publishing house and the previous tidbit about Café de Flore make my head spin. So many unfamiliar authors or authors whose name I recognize but have never read their work. :dunce: But Séte -- what an absolutely charming place! I can certainly understa...

Devotion ~ Tidbit #2 Road Trip!

Interesting travel videos! The architecture, both old and new, is amazing. My friend who creates stained glass works would be in heaven to see those massive windows. And oh! that magnificent cemetery! I could spend days exploring a place like that. :cool:

Devotion ~ Tidbit #1 Ristuules

I wish the full Ristuules movie on You Tube had English subtitles. I may attempt to watch it anyway. The woman's voice and the "still life" images are haunting in the trailer. It is an interesting artistic concept and I would like to see how it is carried out in the film Of course, it was ...

Johnny Depp circling Ciro Guerra's 'Waiting For The Barbarians'

I am so thrilled that it appears Johnny will be in Waiting For The Barbarians. Coetzee is a superb writer and the role in question is very dark, and I can see Johnny creating a perfect villain. As some of you know I work over at The Zone as an ONBC book discussion manager. I am so hoping we will be...

Re: LONDON FIELDS Updates

London Fields is supposed to be releasing soon You don't say? That situation seemed to be a hopeless mess, I'm pretty surprised it's going to be released? I guess whoever invested in it wants to get some of their money back, but at this point, seeing Johnny in the same movie w AH and Billy Bob Thor...

CITY OF LIES (LAbyrinth) Updates

Coincidence? Approx the same day that the press rushed to print that City of Lies had been pulled, Sherilyn Fenn ( sherriisme instagram) posted a picture of Tupac Shakur alongside a short poem he wrote about turning to God when feeling abandoned and alone. On the other hand, it seems kind of risky ...

Well, that is certainly a big disappointment! :banghead2: After reading the book LAbyrinth I think this role could be really good for Johnny's career.

Re: The Lawsuits Thread

This could get nasty. :-/ I would love to see Johnny publicly vindicated. The haters will never believe, but he deserves some sort of legal protection to prevent further damage to his career. I just wish he had never got tangled up with that woman!

Re: The Lawsuits Thread

I feel like Johnny has been vindicated. There would have been no settlement if there was not wrong doing. I hope he got a sizable amount although I don't think he can ever receive enough to compensate for what he has been through.
