I don't know that this deserves its own thread, but I couldn't let Lindsay Lohan's "Freemason stalker" story pass.

We're told LiLo believes the man has been obsessed with her for nearly 4 years ... frequently dropping by her home and leaving weird gifts for the actress. We're also told he's been sending her "insane" text messages for the past few years.

Flashback: Oscar-winning songwriter Joseph Brooks indicted on sex assault charges

Oscar-winning ‘You Light Up My Life’ songwriter Joseph Brooks commits suicide
By Reuters | Sunday, May 22nd, 2011 -- 7:43 pm

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Joseph Brooks, the Oscar-winning composer of the hit "You Light Up My Life" and who was awaiting trial on rape charges, was found dead in his New York apartment on Sunday having apparently killed himself, police said.

The body of Brooks, 73, was discovered at his apartment on Manhattan's Upper East Side around 12.30 p.m. by a friend with whom he had planned to have lunch, police said.

Brooks had a plastic bag wrapped around his head. A helium tank with a hose attachment was also found at the scene and may have been used in the apparent suicide, police said.

They said they found a suicide note but would not discuss its contents. An official autopsy will be done on the body.

Brooks was awaiting trial after pleading not guilty in 2009 to charges he raped and sexually abused at least 11 women.

According to the Manhattan district attorney's account, Brooks, a director and screenwriter as well as a composer, tricked aspiring actresses into coming to his apartment in the belief they were auditioning for a role.

In many cases, the women had responded to an audition notice that Brooks had posted on Craigslist, the online classified ads service, and flew to New York from across the country at Brooks' expense, according to the account.

Brooks won his Academy Award in 1977 for composing the Debby Boone ballad "You Light Up My Life," which featured in the film of the same name that Brooks also wrote and directed.

Brooks' son Nicholas was charged with second-degree murder in December after his ex-girlfriend, Sylvie Cachay, a 33-year-old swimwear designer, was found dead in a bathtub at an upscale New York hotel. He has pleaded not guilty.

listening to this week's WTF episode with guest Matt Graham made me think of this thread.

it is a long interview, that is actually a two part interview on one mp3.

the most RI stuff is in the second part, so you can skip right to 54:25 if you want to get right into that.

enjoy.

Sweet, Ian. I enjoyed that. Obviously not apropos of the thread topic, but that Matt Graham could seriously be me. Besides the GHB use and other things such as suicide attempt, dude talks like me, hit on a lot of topics I myself am dealing with right now and how he handles that shit and of course the noticing of patterns and how they apply. Right down to all the "fucks" and "fuckin" this and that. I'm a drinker, but it sounds like not quite like that, as he does say his bartender gave him some advice at the end. I just so happen to be the bartender and not the comedy writer. It really hit the spot for me, in this spot I am now in life. Thanks again, Ian. . .

edit:

And I wish that motherfucker would join RI!

i am glad you enjoyed it!

that episode had so many areas that seemed like they would be of interest to RI folks, and that random manatee reference sealed the deal for me

I have acquired quite a habit for listening to comedy oriented podcasts.

but the ones that get "meta" start to look at the comedians themselves, and things can get deep and fucked up pretty quickly.

I can't recommend the Mental Illness Happy Hour enough, especially the 2 part Greg Cheever episode.

John Cusack Blasts Hollywood Studio System, Ageism (Video)
The star goes off on the town he describes as "ripe with frontier crazies" and "a whorehouse"
“It’s a whorehouse, and people go mad,” said John Cusack in describing present-day Hollywood in an interview with The Guardian published on Friday.

Promoting his latest film, David Cronenberg's Maps to The Stars, Cusack didn't hold back, criticizing ageism in Hollywood, as well as misogyny and what he sees as an increasingly broken studio system.

Actor Randy Quaid posted a bizarre video attacking Rupert Murdoch, Warner Brothers, and News Corp over their lack of support for him.

He said the studios had earned well over $1 billion for two films he acted in, “Independence Day” and “Christmas Vacation,” but he complained that Murdoch had never thanked him for his work.

“What did I get in return? A Warner Brothers exec, Bruce Berman, stole my house, and News Corp’s the New York Post continues to smear me to high heaven with a pack of lies,” Quaid claimed, as his bikini-clad wife sits on a bed behind him wearing sunglasses.

The reason given was YouTube's policy against harrassment and threats.

He was luckier than he's letting on, not just because he was near Chicago when they wanted to make movies about 16-year-olds in Chicago. The implication here is that things were better...
“People would look after you when I was a kid,” he says. “There were good people in the business. When I came to LA Rob Reiner said: ‘Come stay at my house.’ He taught me. I worked with Pacino [in 1996 crime drama City Hall]. Pacino would talk to you and mentor you. Now it’s different. The culture just eats young actors up and spits them out. It’s a hard thing to survive without finding safe harbour.”


...when his Corey contemporaries, among many others might interpret “People would look after you when I was a kid..." a bit differently.

Randy Quaid would advise Cusack that in Hollywood you really can't Say Anything.
