Heath Ledger – RIP

January 23, 2008

Heath Ledger, the Australian actor who got his start a little over ten years ago with Aussie indy movies like Black Rock and Two Hands (and who plays the Joker in the up coming Batman film) has died in NYC. A bottle of pills was found near his body but it may not mean anything as he had prescription drugs for sleeping disorders and pneumonia…

I met Heath once at a party he threw a few years back. It was at his rented Russell street three-story penthouse he used while filming Ned Kelly. He seemed a nice young chap who was a good host, gregarious and low on asserting his ego and was partying hard with other celeb’s and hangers on that were there…

RIP, man. This is sad news. You had only just begun your cinematic journey….

His performance in the later half of I’m Not There began to show a maturity that had alluded him in other Hollywood fodder that he had allowed himself to be pulled into. The film Candy will also resonate in a new way…

What with Owen Wilson’s recent attempted suicide..it seems all is not well (as usual) in Lalaland. People do forget the dark side of fame… much documented by Underground Filmmaker and genius Kenneth Anger in his book series Hollywood Babylon.

    Hypopnea can occur during sleep. In this case it may turn into a serious sleeping disorder. Sleep hypopnea can be characterized by person’s repetitive stops of breathing or low breathing for short periods of time during sleep. Speaking in anatomical terms, there is intermittent collapse of the upper airway and reductions in blood oxygen levels during sleep. Thus, a sleeping person becomes incapable to breathe normally and awakens with each collapse. Quantity and quality of sleep is lowered, what results in sleep deprivation and excessive daytime sleepiness. The most usual physiological consequences of hypopnea are cognitive disfunction, coronary artery disease, myocardial infarction, hypertension, memory loss, heart attack, stroke, impotence, psychiatric problems. People suffering from sleep hypopnea increase considerably the overall number of traffic accidents. Their productivity is diminished and they have constant emotional problems and strains. .
