Nothing I said about Katzenberg was embellished or made up, why are you pretending otherwise, Andromeda? None of the connections I mentioned last night, are made up. They are all fact. So why you pretend I pulled connections out of my ass, I've no idea. You can't make what I say a lie, simply because you WANT it to be a lie.

I am sorry about not remembering Anakin's gender. When I first saw him at IMDB, he said he didn't want to be considered gender specific.

People can lie by omission.

First

This:

The fact that Dolly's manager is Geffen's longtime best friend and Katzenberg is the reason Keanu got his first big break...none of that means anything? OK. Sure.

Is not the same as this:

His first big break came through a *****Leah Posluns connection**** to Hollywood movie director Steven Stern. Keanu auditioned for a bit part in a TV movie. "There was something about him I liked as a person," recalls Stern, a fellow Torontonian. "Funny, yet a serious side. I told him to take the script home and read it for the lead." When Stern told the Disney executive in charge of TV movies that he wanted to cast an ***unknown*** as his lead, the executive was incredulous. Adamant, Stern paid Keanu's way to L.A. for a screen test, and persuaded Disney executives Michael Eisner and Jeffrey Katzenberg to view it. "O.K.," Katzenberg told Stern, "but if we don't like him after a few days, we'll replace him." They liked him.

*******

The break happened because a theatre company in Toronto had a connection with a TORONTONIAN working for Disney in LA. Stern was so adamant about KR's talent, he personally paid for his airfare to LA to do the screen test. Stern persistence was the reason KR got that job.(Katzenberg only conditionally relented and just because Geffen is Katzenberg's friend, doesn't mean that he factors into the equation.) However, as you can see above (I copied verbatim from your original post), that is NOT what you said, let alone implied. You actually went as far as to eject a decision maker (Eisner) and inject someone who didn't have anything to do with [it](Geffen).

Second

This from the "Is Keanu's Career In The Toilet" thread:
What got my antenna up was the Sandy Gallin reference in the first paragraph of the NY Times article. Read it again. They were very close. Gallin and Geffen used to speak on the phone multiple times a day.(I don't think they were ever lovers, by the way.)

Think that Dolly Parton never said to Sandy, "hey, do me and yourself a favor. I got this costume designer friend named Patric. She's got a great looking son who's making a name for himself in the business and he's got a band. Can you meet him? Can you set up a meeting with Geffen?"

Actually, I don't even think that Gallin had to ask Geffen for a meeting.

is not the same as this:

Even with no album out, the band drew sellout crowds on its first club gigs. "He doesn't understand the fuss," says Ken Funk, who started managing the group three years ago strictly out of friendship for Keanu.(He was actually a hockey buddy.)

********

One is supposition based on nothing but suspicion and being played off as "fact". What I posted was a direct quote from the person who managed KR's bands, the reason why he came to manage them and their connection (hockey).

You can take the time to back-and-forth to compare the rest.

I know I'll never change your opinion, Ardith. I'm just pointing out all the reasons why I disagree with you and Jayne.

Andromeda, I never tried to connect Dogstar to Geffen...never. Keanu was very much into the Hollywood music scene before Dogstar was created. Keanu loves music. Besides, if I were only going to link Keanu to Geffen through music, I would probably go all the way back to Asylum Records and Warner Brothers Records...and then go down the line with Alice Cooper, David Bowie and Lou Reed. Geffen was in the music business for a long time.

I connected Geffen and Keanu through Paul Aaron and Sandy Gallin. Sandy Gallin is Dolly Partons, longtime manager and business partner. When I first saw all the connections Keanu actually had to Geffen, I knew that they had both lied, it could not have been more obvious. I did read the King book but I also read Obsession, Calvin Klein's biography...which had much more information in it. King told how Geffen had screwed his old business partners...Obsession was much more about private lives. Another thing, if you have read many non-fiction books about Hollywood (I have) you know that George Christy or Jeannie Williams would never EVER have outed Keanu. It's not done, not by respected gossips. Those two people, really assumed that Keanu was an out actor. I think he was. I believe when his agency realized his money making potential, they stared telling him to get in the closet and keep quiet. I believe his affair with David probably ended before Dracula came out. Sometimes it takes a lot of time and research to unearth a truth. I don't think anyone wanted to hurt Keanu (except Charlie Sheen), I really believe Keanu was living as a gay man and then his agency realized he was getting a lot of attention, so they advised him to say stupid things that seasoned reporters understand. The handbook for closeted gay actors, everyone knows about it.

Probably, it was not hier, but one mor search the same day... I should affraid for irrevesible personality change. ;)
I think, it was Jayne or ardith, who made reference to some recent pictures of KR, she saw, as argument that he is still in China.Is it really recent, after Christmas? Could you give a link? I would like to see him back. Because, sorry, girls, but all your gladiator games are not my thing, at the moment at least.I prefere to go to the "source". Or to the main award where you're fighting for?

Always feeling the need to censor, aren't you Luca?

Censor this...a conversation between Van Sant and Bruce LaBruce...

Do you think River ever had a gay experience?

Yeah, he had. Bobby Bukowski, the director of photography, said that he had sex with him before and after My Own Private Idaho. I think it said that in Rolling Stone.

And Bobby is completely gay, right. Wow, thatís hot. Because Bobbyís really cute too. I think River ó and also someone like Kurt Cobain ó they both had this longing to be gay because they both identified with, I donít know, the outsiderness of it.

Definitely. Well certainly Kurt. More so. Because River was coming into it really as a character, but he didnít have strong or even politically correct opinions about gay life.

Bobby was a friend of Keanu's worked with him twice, would have been three times except Taylor Hackford fired him...don't know why.

huh? Jayne left you her complete lack of sense of humor as a parting gift?

And why would I want to 'censor' anything?

You being you Luca...I naturally assumed you were completely serious. I still think you were being serious. You've proved over and over again that you think you have the right to censor people.

Shows how wrong your 'natural' assumptions can go.(although frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn what you think. but anyway.)

I proved what 'over and over again'?
I have the same right that you and everyone else here has, to tell people they're typing nonsense when it seems to me it is so. And I will bloody well use it. But 'censor'? that is the prerogative of a moderator/admin. Which I'm not.

IMO, "who" doesn't matter. Reading what came before it, tips Jayne's hand big time. Not that I'm surprised.

I noticed when his wiki page was updated to include the "correct" way to say his name, "KAY-AH-NO". Confusing, but so is my real name. You live to learn with the mishaps.
