    I’m #2! I’m #2! lol
    Thanks Jared for the new thread. I didn’t realize so many people attended. Is Taylor Momsen the same Taylor Momsen who was in The Grinch with J. Carrey?

  • Thassy

    I got to properly say goodbye to someone tonight who touched my life profoundly since I was 8 years old. And by the grace of the guitar gods and the guitar god’s wife and family, I was put on Chris Cornell’s ‘friends and family’ backstage list. He’s been a friend all my life, and tonight it was official. Surreal moment for me. Thanks for the inspiration and the music, Chris. You’re irreplaceable.
    And if you’re wondering Leo, Brad Pitt and Christian Bale are all as good looking in real life as they are in the movies 😍😉

    Woohoo! Hi Felinelilly. 😃

    Pitt and Cornell’s friendship dates back to the ’90s, when the musician’s song, “Outshined,” was featured in Pitt’s movie, True Romance. Throughout the years, the pair grew closer, with Pitt gushing about Cornell in interviews and Cornell attending Pitt’s movie premieres. The actor’s daughter, Zahara, also reportedly attended Toni Cornell’s 2010 birthday party.

    The tribute concert on Wednesday, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, raised over a million dollars for the Chris and Vicky Cornell Foundation and The Epidermolysis Bullosa Medical Research Foundation. In addition to Pitt, celebs including Josh Brolin, Leonardo DiCaprio, Christian Bale, Tom Hanks, Courteney Cox, Kaley Cuoco and David Spade attended the event.

  • William Bradley & The Jolie

    This is great.

  • Passing Through

    Thanks for the breadcrumb trail…

    I’m glad the turn out was good. Says a lot about how many friends Chris Cornell had outside of the music industry.

  • Passing Through

    This picture of Brad and Josh Brolin cracks me up. Josh is saying, “Brad, thanks for saying no to Deadpool, dude!”

  • Beedyq

    Happy to hear this super news.

  • William Bradley & The Jolie

    Oh, I didn’t know Chiwetel had turned to directing. I hope it goes well.

  • William Bradley & The Jolie

    Yeah, I didn’t see Bale but apparently he was there as well.

    I did see pics of Jeremy Renner and now, Le1.

  • Beedyq

    This is the first I had heard of his film as well.

  • Felinelilly

    Hey girl, I’m on and off the thread as I finish off my day, I hope yours is a great one too. 😀

  • Patty Smyth

    I was just looking again at the pic with Brad and Chris’s kids…Christopher Cornell looks like his father and Toni Cornell looks like her mother. IMO, it’s just the opposite with Brad & Angie…I think Shi and Vivi favor Brad (although Shi can look like either on any given day, I think she mostly favors Brad) and Knox favors Angie…genetics are so interesting. 😃😃

  • William Bradley & The Jolie

    Well, gotta scoot.

    Enjoy the day folks

  • Lady Valeria Doria(n) Grey

    Cool that you went!

    Oh Lordy…Cohen is talking. He said Drumpf had him hire an IT consultant to rig online polls – in 2015. And in true Drumpf Crime Family cheatery traditions…he failed to pay the guy their agreed upon fee…even though HE was reimbursed by the Drumpf Org.. Cohen paid the guy 12-13K…and the Drumpf Org “reimbursed” Cohen $50K. A nest of vipers, folks…

    They know nothing, of course, but…at least they spelled everything right…

  • Passing Through

    Wow…Drumpf really is a baby. After Pelosi told him he’d need to reschedule his SOTU address – he wrote her a letter saying he was cancelling her use of a military plane for a trip to visit troops in Afghanistan due to the shutdown. He then told her she was, of course, free to fly commercial – with no govt provided security. This was 1 hour before she was supposed to leave. Her staff wrote back and pointed out that he himself had taken a similar trip to Iraq during the shutdown and several ReThugs had also used military planes for similar trips to war zones. Then her rep tweeted that she was going to visit troops and get an update from the front line – and that Drumpf didn’t even get her itinerary right and she wasn’t going to Egypt as he’d claimed. What a petty POS.

    Tell me again why you believe you need an upvote? I have been using Disqus to navigate and comment at JJ for ages now. I cannot deal with the mess that is the regular JJ site (bad JJ). In any event I seem to best get here by making a comment at bad JJ site and then going to my profile where I can view all my comments and then view the new comment in the new thread at good JJ. Have I made my life here more arduous than necessary?

    That’s from Nikki White’s FB page. I don’t think Thassy is Nikki White or IS she? LOL!

  • GroundControl500

    That’s just cause you didn’t have to go out and stock up on brownies and toilet paper for the coming snowstorm LOL! UNFAIR

  • Thassy

    I did not go. I would love to be there.

  • Thassy

    You are right.LOL!

    Hunker down and stay warm and safe…

    It is 70 and sunny here today for me…similar temp tomorrow but rain possible…

    Long article in today’s local paper that National Weather Service forecast called for a possible blizzard here around the 24th and local weather folks all saying one has never happened here as it is too far south and that the winters have been warmer due to climate change the last decade so there must be a glitch or something due to the govt shutdown…sad what is happening in this country if this glitch guess is even partially true…

  • Tickleme-pink

    Hey all.. thanks for the breadcrumbs.. got so sleepy last night and didn’t see any pics. Need to visit the old thread then catch up on this one. Work is not teh best for reading gossip.. but it pays the bills.

  • Tickleme-pink

    haha.. and there was so much talk about his small role. Well more like his flash of a role.

  • Passing Through

    He’s just a pathetic waste of space. I can’t even say “human being” – because he’s not human…

  • JPlove

    I remember Brad saying that he didn’t have much experience with loss–but
    He has experienced a lot of heartache and loss in the last few years😢

  • Beck

    Very true. Hope his therapy is still going well.
