A wasted young life

I went to a Halloween party thrown by my agent last night. It was at actor Johnny Depp’s Viper Room in Hollywood on Sunset Blvd. It was an anniversary of River Phoenix’s slide into the hereafter at age 23. On the sidewalk where he fell and died there was a makeshift memorial celebrating the really dumb event. The lad died a drug overdose of heroin and cocaine (speedball). The autopsy also revealed traces of cough syrup, and cannabis in his blood. River Phoenix joined an ever growing list of promising entertainers who have checked out due to drug use.

Joaquín Phoenix was River’s younger brother who has enjoyed a fabulous career sans the drug issues.

Inside the Viper Room were 100 or so young and beautiful actors who can only hope to get the life River Phoenix wasted. Of course your not so young or beautiful Vlogmeister was there flirting with all the young babes.
