Holy ****.

Guess I'll ask the obvious:  Did they finish filming all the Batman stuff?

OH ****! I think the filming for BM wrapped, but I know he was signed to be in the 3rd movie also, which is going to be about the trial of the Joker! :o

CNN is reporting that he was found in Mary Kate Olson's apartment, that the police stated they were over the counter meds.  They are also saying that Ledger himself said that he was having trouble sleeping and was taking medication.  Ledger said he was extremely stressed out over the role of the Joker and how dark it was and that he felt it was overwhelming him.  I don't know if they are referring to interviews or heresay.

The problem with America is stupidity I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself

This sucks.  I just heard about it on the way home from work.  I'm pretty shocked.
