A Knight's Tale

Aussie actor Heath Ledger is dead! I woke up to the very sad news this morning and was totally traumatized as I heard it on Sky News when I was buying my coffee on my way to work. Apparently Heath was surrounded by some pills, and at this stage the Police thinks it's a drug overdose (no one knows the exact cause of death yet). I can't believe it and I won't for a while. He was only 28 and what a fine actor he was! I don't need to give you all any intro to this brilliant young actor who had a great future ahead of him. Why does this happen? Fame, Money, Loneliness, Work Pressure, High Expectations etc etc? I don't have any answers...no one will ever know the truth either.

Heath you were a legend mate...I'm sorry your life had to end this way. But the brief period you were on this Earth, you impressed us with your magnificent work and career - you reached your dreams and goals but it all ended far too soon. Life is short but it's so very sad to learn it was shorter for someone like you. Thank you for the great movies! RIP Heath, we love ya!

How uncertain can life be...this only proves that even the seemingly mightiest and happiest people may be spending lonely and unhappy lives in real...they may be seeking happiness through means that are so wrong and fatal. Fame/money/drugs/sex/talent can't buy anyone love and happiness. Inner happiness cannot be developed by outer sources. I hope Heath's life and death would inspire people out there to reach out to someone at their darkest moments, even if they think that they can handle it by themselves...handle it by means that can't really help them. No matter how lonely we may think we are, there's always 'someone' who'd understand...you may be lonely but you're not alone. So don't seek solace through wrong means, seek it by talking to someone or even to a tree or to an angel or to a lake. There's amazing qualities in nature that can make you feel truly peaceful. Take care of yourselves folks!


it pours on my life
this freezing rain soaks through me
lonely, not alone.
--by Stephanie Shimerdla


This song is dedicated to Heath's sparkling memory. So long mate, it's all over now...whatever the cause of your DEATH was, I respect ya and admire you for the way you lived your LIFE. Go with the angels now, we'll be missing ya!

Very very sad.

WHAT, IT IS A JOKE RIGHT? WE LOVE HEATH!! nooooooooooooooo

Margie said...

Hi swt hrt
I just knew even before I came here to your blog, you would have a post on Keith Ledger, because you are so caring and sweet!
It's so very sad about him.
I did not hear about his death till I was on my way home from work (about 45 mins ago)
I too was very shocked and saddened!
He was such a wonderful talented actor!

** No matter how lonely we think we are, there's always someone who'd understand...
you may be lonely but you're not alone.**
That is so very true, Keshi!
He must have been going thru a lot and never turned to anyone for help!
If only he had done so, he might be alive!

I am very glad I have such a special friend in you!
It was a special day when I came to ur blog and met Keshi...the angel!
And, darlin'...I'm so happy right now, as I'm wearing the earrings you sent to me!
( my huuby called me at work, and told me I got ur pkg in the mail, and I was soooo excited and cud not wait to get home, and open ur pkg!)
I love them so much
THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART!
You are too kind!
Silver and crystal....they shine so much!
Barcs must be a beautiful jewellery store there in Aust.
And, the little note you sent to me....I'll treasure it always...like I do the earrings!

You are one in a million, Keshi!
You could not have given me anything that I would have loved more!
You just made my day so very special!!!!

And, now I'm going to dance on my beautiful new carpet that we had put in the house today.
It's so plush and lovely!
My house looks so gorgeous with the new carpet!
Keshi, come by and do the moon-walk on it! LOL!

The two men that installed the carpet were here all day...from 8:30 A.M till almost 5:30 P.M.
They did a wonderful job! I know they were just soooo tired! Before I went to work, I left a generous tip with my hubby to give to them for the great work they did!
He said they had a big smile on their faces when he gave them the money!
That made me happy!!!

Well. dear I'm going to say bye for now!
Very tired right now!
Sending you love and HUGGGGGGGGGZ!
God bless you...always!

May his soul rest in peace.
I felt the same when i read Chris Benoit and his family were found dead, later it was speculated that Benoit choked his wife and son and later on committed suicide. I dont want to believe that for me he was a fine human being and a good entertainer...

George said...

I have just read your last 3 posts as I haven't been able to get around as frequently as I used to.

I just want to say that you are the most beautiful person I know, the most caring and loving ... the soul of the world.

Thank you Keshi

Silvara said...

how tragic is this?! I got an sms from Evs who told me as I was on the train....shocked the hell out of me as there was no inkling at all of any trouble in his life. I'll always remember him as the cute hunk from "10 Things I hate about you"....Rest in Peace mate :)

Jay said...

Very sad about Heath. Pretty shocking news! Leaves behind a 2 year old baby.

Very, very sad.

KP said...

Sad news....:(

Heath was truly legend!
RIP Heath!!

Do not be traumatized by death

Bev Im speechless. Cos somehow ur fav stars seem like ur bestfriends. And when they die, it's a big loss.

hey Jim :)

Keshi said...

Kaylz cheer up..life's too short to be sad for more than 2hrs :)

-----------------------------------


It is Andrew...it's just unbelievable.



Keshi.

Keshi said...

Caz its true hun...shocking indeedz!


-----------------------------------

Margie aww tnxx hun! My mum knew that I'd blog abt it too :) She told me that...just like u hehe.

Heath means alot to me...more than just an actor..he portrayed the roles he got in true style and character...he lived them. Thats why he's a legend.



WOW so u finally got the earrings I sent WOOHOO! :) Im soooooo happy! U must look GORGEOUS wearing em. When I shopped for it, as soon as I saw em, I knew they were the ones for ya! Enjoy it sweetie!

btw, I can moon-walk on ur carpet but I dun wanna wreck it :):) Instead I'll just moon-walk on ur kitchen floor, looking sad ok LOL!

MWAH!


Keshi.

tqmcintl said...

Fame, Money, Loneliness, Work Pressure, High Expectations ?



it dont matter now
why analyze his life?

it cud happen to any one of us
give a hugg to your friend now

tommorrow u may not be around
or he/she may have to go

Keshi said...

True Ashu..

In Ledger's case, we dunno if it's a Suicide or not, but it's pretty sad that he died alone...and one was ard to take care of him...apparently he was also suffering from Pneumonia at the time of this death.


-----------------------------------

heyy Southy!

I heard abt Chris Benoit...even if it was a Murder-Suicide, it doesnt matter how he DIED. What matters is how he LIVED. Cos death happens only in a minute or 2, whereas LIFE happens over a longer period and that's what a person should be respected for...for HOW he LIVED.


**I dont want to believe that for me he was a fine human being and a good entertainer...

ur spot on!


Keshi.

Keshi said...

hey George its ok that u dun get to comment on my EVERY post :) No one has the time to do that kinda blog surfing in a day. HUGGGGGGGGZ!


** the soul of the world.

awww...I was stoked to bits as I read that. And it takes another such soul to recognise it. ty n MWAH! :)


-----------------------------------

Silvara hun yes Im still in a massive shock...


There were no hints that he was depressed. But ppl who r depressed often dun show it til it's too late.

TC n HUGGGGGGGGGZ!


Keshi.

Keshi said...

hey Durjoy :(

-----------------------------------

yes Jay its so sad.

2yr old Matilda will never know what her dad was like...

ty Mav!

yes I said the TRUTH :) U DO LOOK GREAT!



Keshi.

Keshi said...

hey TQM tnxx!

**Do not be traumatized by death
it will happen to all of us sooner or later

but Death still traumatises ppl...besides we havent attained Nirvana not to get affected by it :)



**Everyday was there to be lived or mark his departure from this World.

I love that quote somehow. tnxx!


Keshi.

Keshi said...

Hi again TQM!

Im not analysing his life..but was just wondering. I dun hv the answers anyways...no one will. Only he'd know what he must hv gone thru...no one else should judge his life or the way he died.


I hug alot of friends...but it seems some ppl (even some of my cuzns) dun wanna talk anymore...wut if Im not here tmrw...mebbe they cudnt care less.

WP2007 said...

Hi Keshi

You are very right about actors being like friends--sometimes even family.

Here's a short list of some of the actors who died at a young age through the years.

Actors who have died young (Drug related)

-River Phoenix died of drug-induced heart failure in 1993 at the age of 23

-The star of The Blues Brothers, John Belushi, died in 1982 aged 33

-Sixties “it girl” Edie Sedgwick, who featured in several Andy Warhol films, died in 1971 at the age of 28

Other Hollywood actors who died at a young age:

- Iconic film actor James Byron Dean died at age 24 in a head-on car crash in 1955.

- Martial arts expert and film star Bruce Lee died aged 32 of a cerebral oedema in 1973. His son Brandon, who starred in The Crow, was shot dead at the age of 28 in an accident while filming on a movie set.

- In 1925 Italian actor and “Latin Lover” Rudolph Valentino died aged 31 not long after collapsing with a perforated ulcer at the Hotel Ambassador in New York.

Other actors who died young include Jayne Mansfield (34), Marilyn Monroe (36),
Natalie Wood (43) and Montgomery Clift (45).


Heath's death has left me speechless. Such a waste.

Jim said...

I failed the exam/ audit
and i was sad

I feel sad
when i am not invited to a party
when i dont get a raise in salary
when my love forgets my birthday
when friends leave
when i dont get it up
when i dont last long enuff


but then I read about a death in the newspapers


and i thank the Lord I am alive today to live another day

we take it for granted that there will always be a tommorrow


DONT!

Sujit said...

thats sad.. and more sad to see the state of dead. Life is truly random when it goes no one knows.

Although we should live today which is with us as if there is no tomorrow, but can we do it really?

Ps said...

It is really sad when someone dies so young--whatever be the cause.

This is one of my fav songs.

Tried searching your blog for 'verbal bullets'. Could you send me the link?

Take care and look after yourself.

Keshi said...

I like that quote Jim...tnxx! Its so true...

The baisc need of any humabeing (irrespective of his social status) is LOVE.


-----------------------------------

Bev thats a long list, how very sad too! ty for that.


**John Belushi

I rem him always...cos I used to watch BBs so many times..


Heath's death was a shocker cos he didnt' indicate any trouble in his life neither was he any trouble.


Keshi.

BUMBLE!!! said...

To me, Heath will always be the blue teeth smile in the patriot - however, a knight's tale is 2nd.

Keshi said...

hey Jim!

**we take it for granted that there will always be a tommorrow

so true. u wudnt believe, I hv been living every single day as if it's my last since 2003. dun ask me why.


-----------------------------------


hey Sujit hows u? :)


**Although we should live today which is with us as if there is no tomorrow, but can we do it really?

WE CAN. read my reply to Jim above.

TC Sujit!

Jim said...

Keshi said...

And one more thing Bev..


u know how u said that stars r sometimes like family...so true! Cos they portray our lives n characters thru movies/songs...and that creates a bond with them...a strong one. Thats why the loss is felt so much.


Keshi.

Keshi said...

aww ty PS!

k I will pass u the link soon. tnxx!


-----------------------------------

Bumble yeah...and many more great movies. He was a FINE young actor.

Jim u dun just forget abt ppl just cos they died and just cos u want a happy post? duh!

James Dean the speed demon? :)

Good-looking dude he was!

Keshi said...

Margie I forgot to ans ur query abt Barcs...

yes Barcs is a mega Aussie Jewellery brand. They make nice stuff. I bought em at Myer..my fav store and they sell Barcs stuff too :)

Jim said...

very often Death is a blessing

when u r in pain
physical or emotional


just imagine
if there were no death ...

there is this 80 yo man
married to a lady I love


God forbid!

maverick said...

@keshi..hmm...really..dont get that often...lol..newaz...u saw all d pics??

Keshi said...

Jim In in alot of emotional pain...should I go and die? Wud u still not post or say anything abt me and just get on with ur life? Actually u might.


-----------------------------------


Hey Mav!

nah I didnt see All of em...just skimmed over a few...will check all laterz ;-)




Keshi.

tqmcintl said...

emotional pain is MAYA
an illusion


u gotta psyche your self
and get over it


real pain is physical pain
and clinical depression

i been there
a loss of a lover is emotional pain

u been there?

tqmcintl said...

I just gott bad news
but I convereted the bad news into good news


i am smart

Keshi said...

TQM r u for real!

** clinical depression

is EMOTIONAL!


Keshi.

Keshi said...

Depression is a MIND's deasease...not a physical illness.

Depression involved tortured EMOTIONS...a mind that's unquiet.

U r clueless abt this?

Keshi.

Keshi said...

**involves

Keshi said...

'Smart' dun cut it when ur battling real depression.

Keshi.

Keshi said...

And if u didnt know, most of the time ppl who commit suicide r VERY smart ppl...rather, perfectionists.


Keshi.

tqmcintl said...

clinical depression cannot be controlled by your mind

its a chemical imbalance in the brain

u need meds

Keshi said...

**clinical depression cannot be controlled by your mind
its a chemical imbalance in the brain


What exactly is THE MIND? duh TQM!


Keshi.

Keshi said...

Its a Serotonin imbalance, I know. but thats what balances the MIND.


Keshi.

tqmcintl said...

u need to visit my BIPOLAR BLOG
u dont have clinical depression

Keshi said...

I know I dont have it. But Im talking abt Depression in general. Besides one dun hv to hv clinical depression to be suicidal. A sudden brief bout of depression can make anyone suicidal.

Keshi.

tqmcintl said...

a clinically depressed person
cannot survive without meds - mood drugs

tqmcintl said...

depression in general is foolish

a teenager in love
when his love says goodbye is depressed

when u fail an exam
u get depressed

weak minds commit suicide in such cases

Jim said...

who the fuck is this TQM guy Keshi?

Keshi said...

TQM Im not the kind of person who judges a person who committs suicide. I wont say they r foolish. in fact I say, it takes alot fo courage to take ur own life. Every suicide is an isolated case and no one can really JUDGE them unless they r in that person's shoes.


Keshi.

Jim said...

if u ask me
i think this all hogwash




start another post Keshi

Keshi said...

**OF courage

Keshi said...

TQM = JIM

Im not 'foolish'. LOL!

Keshi.

Jim said...

a suicider is not courageous silly
he is a coward

he is looking for escape
he cant face the music

Jim said...

a truly religious person will never commit suicide

clinical deepression is another ball game alltogether though

Keshi said...

TQM it certainly isnt abt Religion! Plz dun mix religion up with illnesses of the mind.


**a suicider is not courageous silly he is a coward

thats YOUR opinion. Not mine.



Keshi.

Jim said...

a guy who loves Jesus or Ram or Allah
and who knows He loves u too

will not despair
suicide is extreme despair

when u loose all HOPE
when u love your lover more than Jesus

Keshi said...

Again thats ur opinion Jim. Not mine.

Keshi.

Jim said...

my favorite hymns are

ONE DAY AT A TIME SWEET JESUS,
HIS HAND IN MINE sung by elvis

Though i walk thro the shadow of death

I will fear no evil
I can feel His hand in mine

Jim said...

FUCK
its late
i gotta go

i gott work to do
unlike some lucky guys

Nadine said...

My sorrow goes out to his family and his daughter who will not have a chance to really know her dad. It was indeed very sad to hear about a young man with a promising future pass on.

Trinnie said...

RIP

maverick said...

bhags said...

It really was a sad news for us here in India....it was heart breaking to see such a young talented actor meet such an end....i simply loved him in 10 things i hate about you and the Patriot.
May his soul rest in peacr.

Keshi.

Keshi said...

Anuj its not clear if he committed suicide. They just think it's an accidental overdose with prescription drugs as well.

Either way its so sad!

Keshi.

Keshi said...

Bhags WC n ty!

Nora MWAH!



Keshi.

Keshi said...

Miladysa tnxx hun!

it doesnt matter how he died...its just very sad.


Keshi.

Keshi said...

Ali wuts ur prob mate? Wut trash? My deleted comments? LOL u must be crazy. That aint trash btw, if u didnt know.

priya said...

Too much for his age to be in Hollywood or some depression. We never know. Sad indeed.

ALI said...

Thr's no problem at this end.....that for sure...

I got the point...so you now relax...and it was you who started leaving nasty comments....chill now

PRADEEP K. said...

Hi Keshi!

Extremely sorry that I haven't been active in the blogworld in the recent past owing mainly to all those crazy deadlines at work, which is why you haven't been seeing much of me.

Wish you much wisdom and propserity in 2008, and all the years to come.

Shall attempt to take regular breaks to visit blogworld in days to come.

Cheers!
Love,
Prady.

Asha said...

We are all shocked here too Kesh! What a loss!! It's probably accidental overdose. He was said to have suffering from severe Insomnia for a long time.He was a great actor!:(

Jeevan said...

It’s a great lose to cine world and many admires of him. Hope he rest in peace.

Alok said...

sad ... very sad .. may God rest his soul in peace

J said...

Heard this on the news this afternoon. You should read the biography of Sharon Osbourne and Kurt Cobain if you haven't done so already. Gives an insight into the life of these people.

And hey such things aren't just limited to these celebs, there are lot more who end their lives on reasons best known to them. It's quite sad to see/hear their stories.

Fame/money/sex/blah blah blah are just the masks, eventually every individual seeks for that elusive thing, that thing that makes one truly happy.

I shut up now!!

Bla said...

Sudden and sad.

RIP

:(

vEENs said...

I saw that first thing in the google news.
Really sad.. but well it is very good that so many people remember him and that to in good spirit.
I confess i have not seen his movies, but well he was oscar nominated.. so I guess he was good!

He made his mark..
May his soul Rest in Peace..

Simply Curious said...

It's extremely sad. It's not often you can say that a person led such a full life at his age, but he really did. Mixing and matching pills is a no no. I'd compare him to Anna Nicole but that would only be insulting. Truth be told, this reminds me a lot of River Phoenix. Both of them died young, and very talented.

Paul said...

Yeah, that was saddening news.

"There's amazing qualities in nature that can make you feel truly peaceful." That's so true - and that regular contact with nature really can make you less lonely. I think we can develop relationships with places as well as with people.

WP2007 said...

Hi Keshi
I just finished writing a tribute post to Heath. I did not approach the subject in the way most people might.

I also think you'll find the song interesting.

As of writing this comment, police think there might be evidence of drug use. Tox tests can take up to 10 weeks to confirm any found evidence. It was not a suicide.

Bev

The Phosgene Kid said...

Don't worry about making up a song for him, I am sure Elton John will rededicate "Candle in the Wind" to him.

Those Hollywood types all have a screw loose I think, many die long before their time.

Keshi said...

I dunno Priya but he was a good guy. Not those notorious Hollywood-stars kinda guy.


-----------------------------------

alrite Ali, Im sorry if I said anything nasty to u..bt I dun think I said nasty stuff (such as fat, egoistic, trash etc) as much as u said to me anyways.



Keshi.

Keshi said...

hey Praddy long time WOW! So nice to see u here :)

ty and same to u!


-----------------------------------

Asha yeah..it's prolly an accidental overdose...either way it sooooo sad!



Keshi.

Keshi said...

Jeevan so true..it's a big loss to the Cinema world and to his fans...we missed out on watching his future performances which Im sure wud hv been top QUALITY. He had so many years ahead of him.


-----------------------------------

yes Alok it's a shocking TRAGEDY.

I just cudnt believe that he died.



Keshi.

Keshi said...

hey Jono tnxx!

I know abt Kurt Cobain..he was a junkie (tho I love him ALOT) and openly too. But Heath wasnt like that. He was the good ol Aussie bloke doin well in Hollywood but one who always had his feet on the ground. He was never troubled like Kurt was. That's why this is a massive SHOCK to many.

We see Spears, Lohan, Winehouse going crazy with the hight life but we never saw Heath in such news...thats why everyone is so shocked.


**Fame/money/sex/blah blah blah are just the masks, eventually every individual seeks for that elusive thing, that thing that makes one truly happy.

I love wut u said here. TY!


Keshi.

Keshi said...

Yes Bla, he died way before his time. Thats the saddest part.


-----------------------------------

Veenz tnxx hun!

**He made his mark..

So true! In such a short time, he did very well compared to millions of ppl out there.



Keshi.

Keshi said...

hey Simply_Curious WC n ty!

yes...even my mum reminded me yday of Anna Nicole Smith's death. No offense to Anna but anyone wud hv guessed she'd die like that. But Heath was larger than life...he had a CLEAN reputation. That's why its such a shock.


**River Phoenix

yes he died too young...so very sad!

-----------------------------------


heyya Paul tnxx!

** think we can develop relationships with places as well as with people.

Spot on! I hv r'ships with many places, trees, lakes...they r much more caring and soothing to the mind than some humans.



Keshi.

Keshi said...

hey Bev hows ya?

Im on my way to read it tnxxx!

**. Tox tests can take up to 10 weeks to confirm any found evidence

yes I read that this morning...


MWAH!

Dalicia said...

i was suprised to hear that. i thought it would be britney spears who's going to die anytime soon

shooting star said...

yeah...life is stragne..and sometmes it throws up such things in your face..that u get stumped...the death of such a young and vivacious person like heath reminds me of one of my friend's question to god when one of our mutual friends died....he asked god....why god there are so many old people in this world..and you choose such a young person to take away from this world.....well..he is still waiting for the answer....

Keshi said...

Ali its ok...no probs at all.

HUGS? :)

thats right Dalicia..it was a shock!

Judge Arse said...

Very sad. It seems he had a problem with prescription drugs. Easy to fall into that.
Reminds me of when River Phoenix died, also way too young. Sad, sad, sad.

Keshi said...

yes Judge it was TRAGIC!

Keshi.

Judge Arse said...

You are spot on that most people who commit suicide are actually highly intelligent. Intelligence doesn't have anything to do with this decision. Mood disorders are very complex. There are some physical factors, even genetic predispositions, but much of it has to do with events that happen early on. Almost as if one becomes "used to" being depressed. And one cannot just pull oneself up by the boot-straps and "stop it."
Thank you for pointing out that suicide is not a matter of intelligence. As my own wise child said "it's a foolish decision but not a stupid decision. Smart people can make foolish decisions too."
Some folks that I loved very much have ended their life via suicide. It makes me very upset when ignorant people say that those who did this are "stupid." They were troubled. Not stupid.
Sorry for the rant!

no worries Judge!

I've always known that ppl who commit suicide r not cowards or idiots, as some ppl claim em to be. Its so very easy for ppl outside the 'problem' to point fingers at others. Its so very easy. But for the person who's 'troubled', suicide is the only way out of their misery..it's the only meaningful thing at the time.


**it's a foolish decision but not a stupid decision

I agree. Its just a matter of individual situations...no one can fully judge it and label it. I hate it when ppl do that..it's so not fair.

I know all this cos I hv had some very smart ppl in my life who hv ended their life this way. And I'd never call em 'stupid'. NEVER. Cos I know how intelligent they were.


tnxx Judge!
