|"'To give style' to one's character - a great and rare art! He exercises it who surveys all that his nature presents in strength and weakness and then moulds it to an artistic plan until everything appears as art and reason, and even the weaknesses delight the eye." -Friedrich Nietzsche||"To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; To know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded." -Ralph Waldo Emerson|
You have a definate reflex to his voice. You'll watch the same movie over and over (no matter how good or bad) just to see him in action. His eyes, you feel, are worth staring into for hours at a time. You'll buy a $4 magazine for one photo you already have and an article you know does not contain accurate information. You kiss buses because there's a "Johnny Mnemonic" ad on the side and his face just happens to be at eye level, plus your friends dared you to when you meantioned your urge. OKAY! Maybe that one's just mine! But still us Keanu fans are pretty much alike.
ANYWAY! This is my personal contribution to the whole lot of Keanu-ness on the web. It's not much, but it's all I can do for now. I hope you enjoy it. I'll try to make up something cool soon.... "in the meantime..." ("...let me be that I am and seek not to alter me" *he he*) please sign my guestbook &/or e-mail me with comments and suggestions! *Be sure to check out my Keanu movie tributes which include links, photos and quotes.* Thanks for stopping by!
I've been quoted in the October 2000 issue of Premiere magazine (Sarah Michelle Geller on cover), in the web celebrities/Keanu article. Thanks to the nice person out there who told me! (The editors neglected to do so!)

For the details on his lastest contracts: visit Keanunet 2000
Released: Thursday May 15th, 2003
Looks like Keanu's injured his ankle (again) and Carrie-Ann has sprained her knee.
Good job guys. Way to do it like pro stunt people!

Official Dogstar Website
Keanu plays bass guitar in this pop-rock trio along with drummer Rob Mailhouse
(also an actor; known for roles in
Speed, Seinfeld and various other sitcoms), and singer/guitarist Bret Domrose.
I have yet to see them live, though they were in Toronto in 1997.
I've played bass guitar since 1996 (largely influenced by Keanu and Dogstar). Ironically I could've met Dogstar when they came to town (even if I couldn't go into the concert, due to my age), but I had a bass guitar lesson I couldn't cancel.
If you have any ideas for more of this sort of stuff, please email me! [see below]
