    Nice new avatar. I can't count how many times i've been him for Halloween. Plus, it's the only movie that makes me cry every time i watch it alone. Best movie ever if you ask me.

    That's hilarious, I've been him for Halloween several times lol and actually I just cut my hair.....I've had it down the middle of my back most my life. One of my fav characters not to mention his dad. The first movie is badazz for sure, one of the most memorable personalities on camera.

    You have a good amount in common with me. I guess this can sorta work as an introduction for me too... i also am musically trained. Drums, piano, guitar, bass, recording. In that order of how good i am at those instruments. Spiritual of course. I'm just not a dad lol. I don't see myself ever having a family... i'm a bit dark in that i am okay with being alone. Although, i have great friends and family so i'm not truly ever alone. One thing interesting... i wonder what your Briggs test personality would be. I am an INFJ... the most spiritual minded of all signs too and most rare. I'd say it's the best sign, but so does everyone with their signs. I use to have long hair too. Looked exactly like the crows hair. Unfortunately i am affected by balding so i shaved my head now. But it's nothing a wig can't fix for Halloween lol. Btw... Halloween is my favorite holiday. And i love anything dark (dark romantic btw... i hate violent and gore type stuff). With music i am a master of the minor keys. I'm a paralegal right now, but i am planning on doing something that would let me use my creative side. It's a boring life if i can't use my creativity. I'm happy you've found a means to use your creativity. It's hard finding something that can make you a living in the creative fields. Oh... and also trained kickboxing for years now. I love martial arts... trying to learn cool stuff with a bo staff right now.

    I hate the fact he was shot on site Outplayz especially at a young age, I mean it was so long ago but what a tragic, freak accident and a brilliant new star arising. To me, he seemed to reach his potential in the film with that movie, then it ended so quickly just as if it was Bruce Lee :(

    Yeah it's sad. But he will be remembered for a long time in the future for that brilliant movie. They were trying to make a remake of it and tried to have the guy that played aguaman, jason momo or something, play him. I can see it, but he dumped the role. He said the movie is way to big a shoe to fill. I respected him for that... bc i would be pretty mad if they make a crap remake... or a remake in general. Leave this movie alone.

    Dude, you should have not mentioned balding lol, now I'm going to get on you about a carnivorous diet! sorry but can't help myself. Try that diet I recommended and you will have more hair than you know what to do with. Acidity causes decay and alkaline rejuvenates.

    Can I ask a question? is there any reason why they didn't consider Johnny Depp as a legit replacement? imagine him with the crow make-up.....the only thing I can think of is that Johnny is not that physical or masculine but the face and intensity of acting would be perfect.

    I'll give it a thought, but I actually really like how i look with a shaved head. It is actually pretty empowering. It takes a month to see it. I hated it at first, but after a month it is a really weird confidence it gives you. I'm sorta addicted to it now. So i'm not even worried about getting my hair back. i guess it would be good to have the option though.

    Johnny Depp is a money hoe too lol. He would probably take the role. But i get what you mean. He does have the look. He is just a bit silly though. I don't see him as a ghost of vengeance type. Plus he is older now. It would be kinda weird playing the romantic musician type that is suppose to be young and just getting married. In any case, i really don't want them to remake the movie. It is literally my favorite movie so i would be kinda disappointed. Some movies you just have to leave alone.

    You sound like a me lol, I love to rip minor key solos, like a cross between middle-eastern and classic rock. Maybe that's why we have such similar belief structures, cool mon. Autumn is for sure the most fascinating time of year.

    Ha, I guess I was kinda referring to years ago but yeah I get it. Johnny is kinda not a tough guy lol.

    In any case, i really don't want them to remake the movie. It is literally my favorite movie so i would be kinda disappointed. Some movies you just have to leave alone. 

    I actually agree with that, it's obvious nobody can touch that character, I was just thinking if they do it, it should be somebody that has the face and style.

    Lol if i ever had a daughter i would name her Autumn. Yeah, i've always noticed we have a lot in common. That's why i've always been so amazed you also have a similar spiritual belief too... which mind you is pretty rare to begin with.

    I have a shaved head too now, funny that we would go from having long hair to a shaved head. Something about it I like, not having to worry about what it looks like. I just get up and do my business and use my facial hair to have fun with. I kinda remind myself of Chuck Liddell lol, only I need to sport a mohawk!
