Stunning loss.

Again, God Dam the Pusherman. He was in detox last March, thought he licked it. OD'ed in the bathroom a la Lenny Bruce, found with a set of works in his arm by a playwright associate who had access to his flat. Good Lord.

He was very functional, lucid and discreet - insanity-free and bad press-free through it all. Always a pro on set, no Prima Dona press, the complete opposite of John Belushi, Linsday Lohan, and Robert Downey Jr. in his dark days. Few knew.

Discontinuity here, a real conflict for us of PSH, being seen as a sober, professional, on-the-ball, a "thank-God-for-him" talent who'd never be envisioned to go out like Lenny Bruce or John Belushi.

I bang my chest on this one.

So they get high to escape being alone.



Or fame and fortune wasn't what they thought
it would be and the disappointment is so great
they use drugs to escape.

One of the Vanderbilt's once said "The difference
between rich people and poor people is, the poor
still think money will help."

And the rich don't suffer from that delusion. They
know all money does is change your lifestyle, it
doesn't change all the things wrong with you personally.
This is why there are so many miserable lottery
winners.

He was good and will be missed. Drugs like heroin are dangerous and accidental overdoses are normally just that. It's usually the people who quit and come back to it who overdose because they misjudge their tolerance level.

Just last week Bill O'Reilly had his guy Jesse at Sundance
interviewing celebs. Jesse said not only wouldn't Hoffman
talk to him, he turned on his heel and ran (literally) in the
other direction. Jesse thought it very odd behavior.

"H" claims another victim.



"C" caffeine. I've had coffee that tasted like it should have a death card. One of those late night casino diners where they pot sat and cooked for hours with el-cheapo coffee that tasted like dirty rag water.

In case anyone is wondering.
