Keanu Reeves

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “John Wick: Chapter 2” EARLY & FOR FREE

Just how much did I love the first John Wick movie?
I need to tell you a story first, so you’ll fully understand.
I met Keanu Reeves back in 1996, when he was touring with his band Dogstar. He came to the radio station I worked at and I was TERRIFIED. I’d taken the rest of his band out for drinks the night before and introduced them to several of my girlfriends. A good time was had by all except Keanu, who spent the whole night in his hotel room. I don’t know what I expected when he walked in the next day, but I was hoping he’d be light-hearted and fun, like the rest of Dogstar.
He wasn’t. Keanu Reeves was sullen and difficult, and he made it clear that he didn’t want to be there.
I had taken calls from listeners, and asked what THEY would ask Keanu Reeves, given the chance. The first question I chose was how he found his band-mates. Were they old friends or had they met another way?
“That’s a stupid question. No one wants to hear that. Ask me something else,” was his response.
I don’t remember the rest of the interview. I just remember how much I hated Keanu Reeves at that moment. You can tell from this picture that he was being a jerk.

Dogstar-1996 (I liked the drummer more, anyhow.)

Vin Diesel & Donnie Yen

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “xXx: Return of Xander Cage” EARLY & FOR FREE

Forgive me for the EXTREMELY last-minute nature of these movie passes, but they just fell into my lap. They’re to see xXx: Return of Xander Cage, which stars Vin Diesel as an extreme-athlete-turned-govenment-operative who has to save the world…again. This time, he comes up against the deadly “Xiang,” who’s played by a fantastic Donnie Yen. You might know him from his Ip Man movies, but it’s more likely that you fell in love with Yen as the blind Jedi “Chirrut” in Rogue One: A Star Wars story. So, do you want the passes? Click HERE to grab those, then watch the xXx: Return of Xander Cage trailer below. And BOOM, my Ruby Rose Girl-Crush is rekindled.
