Move over Veronica, I too have a BIG BAD CRUSH on GRD and this post just made it bigger and badder.

Christabel..thanks so much for getting back to us..Boy,there are Deppheads everywhere...I love the sighing audience :cloud9: I have always seen Johnny as Lin,because of the spiritual qualities of both,but now I am even more convinced,because they are both innately charming..[Being a similar height helps too,eh Boo :capnjack: ]...With Warner Bros behind this and given Johnny's recent successful collaboration with Tim,my guess is that Shantaram will be fast tracked......Did you find out where else Greg may be speaking?...I've emailed him about coming to Qld,but I haven't heard back...might try again....Thanks again :bouquet:
Life is beautiful.

I have faith in you.

... I didn't find out where else or if he'll be making appearances, and his website is NEVER updated, so there's not much of a chance finding out that way. It was really only a fluke that I found out about this appearance of his. However, he gives a lot of special night lectures at Unis around Aus, so maybe you could check in with one up north? Try emailing him again, too. It's well worth the trouble if you get to hear him speak!
The only ones for me are the mad ones...

Christabel thank you for sharing your meeting with Greg, he sounds very charismatic - you are right about his website not being updated, he must be very busy. It is great to read about real life encounters. He and Johnny sound like they hit it off - and they both sound very similar in outlook and interests.
Thank you again, that has made my Sunday night. :lilyrose:
"One time he, (Marlon Brando), says to me: 'How many films do you do a year?' I said, 'I dunno. Two or three.' He says, 'You've got to watch yourself. We've only got so many faces in our pocket.' "
