tukatz: Considering the level of talent Phoenix was at, why even dig the footage out of the garbage?

River should do more movies. He's been looking pretty good recently.

What's the problem? All the director needs to do is hire his wife's chiropractor to stand in for River in the rest of the scenes and find some clever way to obscure his face in each shot.

Confabulat: I met River Phoenix once cause I was trying to date this girl who sang for some indie band in Gainesville and they all hung around together. He was busy acting like a dick. I met Michael Stipe the same way. Also a dick. It was important to be an asshole if you were cool in those days. I was not.

CSB: I met Phoenix too under different circumstances, I think. He was touring with his band Aleka's Attic and donating proceeds to save the rainforests. He and his cult family drove around in a Partridge Family type bus that was dirty and utterly ridiculous. I managed the nightclub he was playing in DC and he hid in my office for two hours to escape his entourage and we drank some beers and talked. When I told him I met his uncle "Sky Phoenix," he said, "that dude's not my uncle" and was clearly irritated. He kept telling me how cool my job was, which was hilarious to me coming from a movie star and I assured him the job often sucked. I got the sense that he hated his circumstances even more than I disliked mine. I told him I wanted to quit and become a writer (which I did) and he genuinely told me that if I ever wrote a screenplay to send it to him. It was a kind thing to offer and he was not dickish at all to me. Dying before I could write it - that was the dick move. Of course, I still haven't tried at a screenplay.
