ONBC Tidbits - Waiting for the Barbarians

Unfortunately we read the book last summer/fall, but you are more than welcome to read through the tidbits (articles) and the questions we asked. With regard to intensity/violence, we don't know how closely the movie follows the book. It is an intense read, unforgettable. And I would highly recommen...

WAITING FOR THE BARBARIANS Updates, Reviews and Discussion

Yes, me too. It was last summer that I was doing Waiting for the Barbarians tidbits. Always a deep dive. This is going to be online right?

Johnny Depp Officially on IG and Facebook

Thank you for sharing the lyrics of Where's The Love. I want to believe, I live to believe that this time will be different. We are all members of the human family and each of us, up close, has the same desires and fears, the same dreams for our children. How much more we could create and build if t...

Johnny Depp Officially on IG and Facebook

I don't think they get removed, probably buried in the onslaught of folks reaching out to him. If we assume that 10% of his 4.9 million followers write him on any given day that's 590,000 new comments. Yeah.... :-O I think the trick is to post within 30 minutes of his latest post coming on line. Thi...

Spring 2020: Reading suggestions?

Glad I could offer something. I have messaged several people close to JD in hopes that the messages won't be lost in the wind. I know they are aware that fans are interested in what he reads. Perhaps he worries about personally recommending stuff? Though that don't sound like him. If I ever hear any...

Johnny Depp Officially on IG and Facebook

4 million views! :toastingpirates: 4 million FOLLOWERS. Now, let's try to come up with a daily view count. How many visits do you personally make a day to 'check out' Johnny? I am guessing most people stop by at least twice a day (8 million views) but who knows, it could be four times a day (16 mil...

Spring 2020: Reading suggestions?

Yes, it's worth trying but given the number of people talking to him simultaneously (there are roughly 3.6 million following him), it might be challenging. Years ago I wrote Patti Smith about JD's reading preferences and got back a list, and several of the books we've read were on this list. I moved...

Spring 2020: Reading suggestions?

There is a tremendous amount of positive energy that exists around the sharing of thoughts on books, and positive thinking is something we all need right now, in abundance. It is one thing to read and enjoy a book in silence. It is another thing altogether to step forward and share one's thoughts on...

Spring 2020: Reading suggestions?

Yes, I have suggestions. Johnny, himself, owns the copyright to the Minimata book written by Eugene Smith which includes his photos. This one is currently out of most people's price range -- with an occasional used book running in the high $40+ and really good copies over $100. A nice alternative mi...

MINAMATA Updates

Reading these truly wonderful reviews my attention was caught by the phrase "power of the small." I first heard about this concept when we were reading Damien Echols book Life After Death . The "Power of the Small" -- a Buddhist concept -- as described by Echols had to do with the power of little th...

Re: The Lawsuits Thread

It is so wonderful to read or see people responding to that horrific audio between Amber and Johnny. I do believe that the tide is beginning to turn as more and more people have a chance to listen to Amber attempting to defend her need for violence against her intimate partners. I remember the days ...

Tim and Johnny in London

The black haired woman laughing with Johnny is Stephen Deuters' wife Gina. Gina has also done a lot of work with Tim Burton, as a visual effects coordinator (she often works under 'Gina Willis). Some of the movies she's worked on: Miss Peregrine's House, The Rum Diary, Pirates -- Stranger Tides, Pri...

Re: Pirates 6 with New Jack or No Jack?

:cloud9: I say CAPTAIN Jack Sparrow IS Pirates of the Caribbean. He created his fresh character all by his onesie and there is no such thing as a POTC movie WITHOUT Jack Sparrow. I am sure the cast, crew and even producers deep down know this to be true even if they are not saying it. I pray Disney...

WAITING FOR THE BARBARIANS Updates, Reviews and Discussion

Two decent reviews found over at Stephen Deuters Twitter account. Both are worth reading. Martyn Conterio at Cine-Vue, and then Electric Shadows gives the film a 4-star rating! Yes! People who know the book and who are discerning critics. Nice stuff. Thank you Stephen Deuters!! https://cine-vue.com/...
