dote: a life story

“This guy reading the newspaper on the subway is Keanu Reeves.

He is from a problematic family. His father was arrested when he was 12 for drug dealing and his mother was a stripper. His family moved to Canada and there he had several step dads.

He watched his girlfriend die. They were about to get married, and she died in a car accident. And also before that she had lost her baby. Since then Keanu avoids serious relationships and having kids.

He’s one of the only Hollywood stars without a Mansion. He said: ‘I live in a flat, I have everything that I need at anytime, why choose an empty house?’

One of his best friends died by overdose, he was River Phoenix (Joaquin Phoenix’s brother). Almost in the same year Keanu’s father was arrested again. 

His younger sister had leukemia. Today she is cured, and he donated 70% of his gains from the movie Matrix to Hospitals that treat leukemia.

In one of his birthdays, he got to a little candy shop and bought him a cake, and started eating alone. If a fan walked by he would talk to them and offer some of the cake.

He doesn’t have bodyguards, and he doesn’t wear fancy clothes.

When they asked him about ‘Sad Keanu’, he replied: ‘You need to be happy to live, I don’t.’”

I still can’t believe that a Sims 3 video I made 3 years ago has over 140,000 views. This was back when my Sims weren’t covered completely in custom content haha. Fun times.

recreation is hard work

Oh god.  Since Sunday I have been devising and attempting to implement a new plan of Tumblr Management that will allow me greater dashboard control and social interaction while not losing an avenue to the joyous neverending riot created by Following Too Many Blogs, and also possibly assist in a super-secret project I’ve been wanting to get under way for a while, but I don’t know if it’s working or if it’s crazy.  

Basically I set up a sideblog under another e-mail address that shares a private group-blog with this one, and I’m trying to sort follows into “must see everything or else” and “colorful thought-provoking dashspam” between the two, but somehow the former group is still 73 people larger than the latter and it is physically paining me to consider trimming further.  Plus, my brain is experiencing a strange side effect wherein it tries to sort every song my iPod plays into one of the two groups.  And I’m still not caught up to 5/13/13 in bookmarks, OR on posts about Listen Up Silver Spring, and for some reason M. and I have decided to have a marathon rewatch all of Glee starting tomorrow, and wasn’t I going to start listening to Big Finish again AND THE SUPER-SECRET PROJECT AAAH why are VLC screenshots so difficult??

I just don’t know how I can make this happen until I have that week off work at the end of August, or what I need to do to set things up for maximum efficiency when I get to that time.

I have bizarrely fruit-flavored caffeinated beverage and tomorrow off work, though, so at least I can enjoy something.
