Happy Birthday Johnny!

Happy Birthday to the man who made a stunning difference in my life. We met once in passing, but that's not why I say he transformed my life. I say it because I was basically painted into a corner in my life when I found him and his films, when I found Depp fans. I was done, cooked. I was out of gas...

The Lawsuits Thread

Perhaps we can all rent and watch the Professor and give it positive reviews. Johnny does a magnificent job in this role. Maybe we can start rebuilding by giving this movie the praise it deserves. :cool: Completely agree! Another thought that runs through my head all the time -- Johnny's never comp...

Photobucket Question (and alternative sites)

I use Flikr. It's tolerable. It's what I use to post ONBC stuff -- announcements, tidbits, etc. Back in the day Photo bucket was great and I definitely miss it.

The Lawsuits Thread

I see the press as a giant behemoth that feeds on both fortune and tragedy. Attracting the reader or the watcher is a paramount objective and simplicity is also desirous. Clean cut story lines, clear stereotypes because the audience's attention is short-lived and fickle. Johnny's team is attempting ...

The Lawsuits Thread

I really think that media loves to focus on Johnny because he is a legendary star -- he is known and identifiable worldwide. She is not much. Media does everything based on a story's ability to seize reader or watcher attention. Simple tales that build on audience prejudice (meaning what people are ...

Re: Hollywood Vampires--All the latest news

I just heard "We Gotta Rise" What a straight-up, old time political action song! Wow! I am impressed as all get-out. Hunter Thompson must be dancing up a storm somewhere. Just a snippet of the lyrics, "We gotta rise and mobilize. It's you and me. We gotta rise. Let's rise above the li...

ONBC's New Read: JM Coetzee's Waiting for the Barbarians

Ladylinn, thrilled you will be joining us! As to where I've been, here and elsewhere. Some surgery last summer, and an extremely busy school year. But I've been yearning for a good book, and I am so pleased that Johnny is involved with this one. It's a thoughtful, at times intense read, but it moves...

MINAMATA Updates

I was over at Stephen Deuters twitter account today and he has posted a link to a Magnum Photos article and photo essay that provides us with really great access to the book, "Minamata: W. Eugne Smith's Warning to the World." It's short but provides one of the best overviews of Smith's wor...

The Lawsuits Thread

We live in a time where the accuracy of something stated holds less weight than it did say 10 years ago. And sometimes the winner is not the one who is telling the truth, but the one who has an ability to use the media to their advantage. So, we need to expect what's her name will continue her campa...
