The Weekly Ketchup: The Passing Of Heath Ledger

Also: Oscar, Razzie nominations; Star Trek IX, X-Files 2 stills

In this week's Ketchup, the unfortunate passing of Heath Ledger trumps all other news. Other occurences of lesser importance include the Oscar and Razzie nominations, and some new movie stills from the next Star Trek and X-Files films.

This Week's Top News:

Heath Ledger: 1979-2008
Heath Ledger, star of films including Brokeback Mountain, 10 Things I Hate About You, and the forthcoming The Dark Knight, was found dead this afternoon. He was 28.

Oscar Nominations Announced. Full List Inside.
With the writer's strike going on, just how the AMPAS will present the Oscars is still unknown. For now, though, we got the who and the what. Awards heavyweights No Country for Old Men and There Will Be Blood lead the way with eight nominations each, including Best Picture. Other contenders in the category include the Big Sweeping Romance (Atonement), the Annual Beloved Fox Searchlight Indie (Juno), and the Dark Horse (Michael Clayton).

Studio Executives Face Difficult Decisions in Wake of Ledger's Passing
For most of the people affected by Heath Ledger's unexpected death, it's difficult enough to simply absorb the shock and grief. For the executives overseeing Ledger's final projects, however, some difficult decisions need to be made -- and with millions of dollars at stake, they need to be made sooner than later.

I Know Who Killed Me, Norbit, Daddy Day Camp Lead Razzie Noms
No awards season -- even a strike-tainted one -- would be complete without the Razzies, right? Of course not. And that's why we've thoughtfully assembled all of this year's nominees in one convenient location.

New Star Trek XI, X-Files 2 Stills Revealed
In a mind-boggling convergence of sci-fi pre-release buzz, new stills from Star Trek XI and X-Files 2 were released yesterday -- and since we love nothing more than a good old-fashioned geekout, we've got 'em all right here for you to look at.

WE CAN CHANGE THE FUTURE !

POST UBI DIGRESSUS

The moon in her turn,
dimming when he's gone,
among shooting stars
with dreamy intimations,
makes the oblivious listen,
and see the absent one.

BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN FOREVERMORE: PROSPECTS OF OLD FOR TODAY SEERS

NIGHT-AND-DAY SPELLS

ENCOUNTER

The sun in the moon: an amalgam.
Their gold and silver melt together.
The elusive ones finally meet:
The essence and the evolving forms,
Good and evil, dead and alive, everything blooms
From one natural stem.

If you can't see love itself,
See the results.
Generosity or greed.
If you can't see anywhere Love
Look at the face of the lover.

RECOGNITION

Lovers think they are looking for each other,
But there's only one search:
Wandering this world is wandering that,
Both inside one transparent sky.

IGNITION

We hear a voice from the sky
Calling the lovers,
And the odd, lost people.
We scatter lives,
Like bees we build in the bee-hive air
Our true hexagonal homes.
Then we break what holds us, each one a blacksmith
Heating iron and walking to the anvil,
We blow on the inner fire,
And with each striking we change.
Now we are still, silent wisdom, hidden flame.

EXPANSE

Existence: this place we made from our love for emptiness.
Free of presence, free of dangerous fear, hope,
Free of mountaineous wanting.
The here-and-now mountain
Is a tiny piece of straw,
Blown off into emptiness.

IDENTITY

Where did I come from?
I have no idea.
This drunkenness began in some other tavern.
When I get back around to that place,
I'll be completely sober, but now,
Put your cheek against this drunken cheek,
And give me a cup of liquid,
Full of gold light.
Forget men planning war.
You can open the wide door of the sky,
As you open me.

REFLECTION

Tonight the moon comes dropping its clothes in the street.
I fall up into the bowl of sky.
The bowl breaks.
When the wineglass breaks,
I fall towards the glassblower's breath.
I ask the moon about you:
The way the night knows itself in the moon,
That you are in me.

THE TENT

Outside, the freezing night,
This other night inside grows warm, kindling.
Let the landscape be covered with crust,
We have a soft garden in here
The news we hear is full of grief for the future,
but the real news inside here, is there's no news at all.

SPACE

See, there are no edges to this garden.
Sweet fruits, every kind you can think of,
Branches green and always slightly moving.
See the nervous greed
Deep inside plants and animals,
And see them constantly
Giving themselves away.

KNOWLEDGE

Since we met, a game goes on.
I move, and you respond.
You're winning, you think it's funny.
But look up from the board now.
Look how we've brought in furniture
To this invisible place,
So we can live here.
After my dead living
I can still live with you.
you want me to.
You fix and bring food.
It's a drum and arms waving,
It's a bonfire at midnight
On the top edge of the hill,
This meeting again with you.

What do you want from me?- you ask -
The privacy of one truth,
Reason in the abstract,
And reasoning in each of us.
Go on your strange journey
To the ocean of meanings,
Where you become one of them.
Go on foot through my garden,
Like the grass does.

UNION

We dive into the deep pool of the mountain,
Folded into the river,
As the split-second
When the bat meets the ball,
And there is one cry between us.

Lord, the air smells good today,
Straight from the mysteries of God.
The trees in their prayer,
The birds in praise,
The first blue violet kneeling.

Whatever came from Being
Is caught up in being,
drunkenly forgetting the way back.

Our soul is here for its own joy.
A heart has one use:
For loving a true love.
The mind is for learning, but mysteries
Are not to be solved,
And love
Is for vanishing into the sky.

A lover is always accused of something,
But when he finds his love,
Whatever was lost in the looking
Comes back completely changed.

Touch my eyes, so I can be myself,
Let me feel you enter each limb
Bone by bone,
That what died last night,
Can be whole today.

Why live some soberer way,
And feel you ebbing out?
I won't do it,
Now I know how it is,
To be with you in a constant conversation


(XIII Century pre-religionist Central Asia. Rumi)

Andre Pons, you're deeply mad.
'Day to night spells' was all I needed to read to know you suffer from wild paxil induced madness of atmospheric levels. Stop thinking the way you currently do, because your mind has melted into a mound of dirty questions and mistakes. You're writing heath ledger poems? I wonder how he'll read them, his eyes stopped working last week. I'm surprised you could focus long enough to get that all typed out without screaming at your hair.

R.I.P Heath Ledger. You will be greatly missed. But with his passing, I don't think he'd want us to lament over this, but be happy he gave us characters to remember him by "Joker" being the last of them. But who else do you think will come close enough in playing Joker in the future? Here are my picks in a segment i'd like to call "MY JOKERS"

1.Johnny Depp

2.Ashton Kutcher

3.Topher Grace

Who are yours?
