You know how sometimes you have moments where you feel like you must be living in a cave or some remote foreign local? That's what it's been like since yesterday when Heath Ledger died. It's the topic on my f'list and on many of my email lists. I had absolutely no idea he was so popular. I'd heard of him, knew he was an actor, but that was about it. I checked IMDB to see if I'd ever seen any of his movies, but I hadn't. I've come across one other person who hadn't seen him before either. We must be sharing cave space.
It's very sad for his family, and I feel for his fans who are taking his death as such a blow.
