Hi:) everyone is buying the book 'Last Night At The Viper Room'. Is it a good book to buy? I'm worried if they're all lies. I'm hoping it's accurate! Thanks xox

Hi there (sorry to take so long to reply), I don’t want to tell anyone what to do in these matters just to get that out there — I’m not much of a fan of any of the previous biographies tbh and I haven’t read ‘Last Night’ (not sure if I’ll bother), just excerpts, but my cousin who I mention here from time to time ’took one for the team’ as it were and has read it, and I trust her assessment fwiw. It sounds mostly like a case of SSDD (same shit different day haha Stephen king), I think sometimes it’s not just accuracy of concern -and details sometimes differ - but also the perspective the author takes/their bias and experience, what they choose to focus on (and not focus on) to create a ‘narrative’ out of, in this case, River’s life - but narratives are created in hindsight, actual life itself is much more complicated, random and mundane, sometimes shit just happens, sometimes there’s a reason, everything intersects, life is complex and unpredictable, what was River’s ‘truth’, that’s what I’d like to know, but we can’t ask him; I’ve yet to read anything that actually rings true of that era and what it was like at the time, particularly for us young people of that generation, in regards to River’s life (although I understand ‘Last Night’ has some new material such as interviews/quotes about River from people who knew/worked with him, etc, so that’s sweet to hear, I like to get my quotes from the source so that may be a reason to read it… or at least borrow it for a while for the quotes :-P ).  

I think it would have been refreshing if the book had a title that didn’t resort to sensationalizing his death, and one part that disturbs me (that I actually did read in excerpt) is the author’s controversial claim that basically posits if Rain, Joaquin and Sam hadn’t been so freaked out and acted sooner in calling 911 when River was in distress that he’d probably be alive, which kind of contravenes the expert medical opinion and witnesses at the time, and is perhaps unneeded wild speculation at this point. But again, I haven’t read it so if and when I do, I’ll post here what I really think of it haha, just wait. <3  (ok sorry to babble on, anyone would think I’d actually read the thing at this length)

Was River P completely shy? cause in some things he looks shy and then in another thing he looks funnny and outgoing

Asked by Anonymous

Hi there, well I think like many of us he could be both, depending on the circumstances — sometimes he appears very shy and awkward, his fear and dislike of cameras no doubt contributing to this, as well as being uncomfortable being the center of attention in public; and sometimes he was more relaxed and comfortable in his surroundings so I think his silly, dorky side comes through, I think it just depends on the moment. He didn’t ‘force’ himself to conform to what was expected of him so I think there was a rawness about him instead of the often forced or fake-looking façade celebrities seem to put on, one of the things that made him unique. <3

The other day I watched River's Final 24 (just to see if it really did give misinformation as it did :( ) and it made me really sad to think that people who don't really know much about him can get mislead about who he was. Do you have any thoughts?

Asked by Anonymous

Hi, yeah my thoughts on the subject are pretty much nothing good; I know I’ve ranted plenty here about the relentless and misleading narrow focus and obsession in the media on River’s death as if it somehow defines him and who he was; my dismay is as keen as it ever was, so frustrating, though I think I’ve gotten more used to it. I guess we can just hope that people will look beyond the media agenda and misinformation at the person River was, and I think to a degree this is happening but it still bothers me; for me River’s death is just one small albeit incredibly tragic part of his life, the person he was and the things he stood for - I know I can’t change the perception of him with my miniscule blog here but I guess at least I can try to give my perspective so I guess that’s why I keep going, I feel like he deserves it. <3

In Stand By Me dont you think it is so heart breaking when gordie says goodbye to chris and he like fades into the air :( it feels real.

Asked by Anonymous

Hi, yes that moment is heart-breaking, one of those moments in film history when events in real life add a special poignancy to what happens on screen - I think Rob Reiner said it still makes him cry to this day. <3
