The Dark Side of Celebrity

by lizard

When celebrities die, there is always speculation. Philip Seymour Hoffman’s reported death by overdose earlier today is already being linked to a string of overdoses from fentanyl-laced heroin hitting the east coast. I’m sure in the online fractals of paranoia, the speculation will deepen. Heath Ledger will be involved. And illicit knowledge. What did he know and/or who did he cross?

It’s easy to get caught up in the intrigue. I remember when Paul Walker died thinking of the death of the journalist Michael Hastings. The latter I presume to have been killed in a similar fiery luxury automobile crash, but Paul Walker? What could he possibly know? I waited a few weeks to let the internet do it’s thing, which is this:

Paul Walker and his friend were killed shortly after they discovered a conspiracy to supply victims of Typhon Haiyan with a prototype permanent birth control drug hidden in medicinal supplies and food aid. They had a damning recording and they were on their way to rendezvous with an ally who would have helped them get in touch with the right people. Turns out they were betrayed and someone rigged their car’s breaks to malfunction after a certain speed.

This is all easily dismissed. Don’t think twice, it’s alright. And certainly don’t listen to Dave McGowan discussing the bizarre happenings of Laurel Canyon.

  1. Big Swede

    Your just scratching the surface Liz.

    I’m thinking they’ll be questioning if Wayne Lapierre sold him the tainted smack.

      Are we going to have to start putting up a “Swede Synopsis” here, too?

        Hoffman did the narration for the anti-gun-save-the-children ad. My feeble attempt at humor.

        Dark humor is being found dead with 70 bags of smack only after missing an appointment to pick your own kids up.

        Save the children with a new sober stepdad.

  2. Your PSH weekend:

    Leap of Faith – Steve Martin’s go-to con man.
    School Ties – chewed out by Al Pacino
    Nobody’s Fool – punched out by Paul Newman
    Twister – Dusty, the stoner tornado chaser with a heart
    Punch Drunk Love – One bad dude
    Before the Devil Knows Your Dead – Experience with heroin
    Synecdoche, New York – A physical actor.

    This guy really came up through the ranks over the years, and you might be surprised in some of the older movies he appears in.

    Why do people do heroin?
