Today , August 23, it is River Phoenix's birthday. It's not midnight yet so I'm in time to wish him a Happy Birthday. He was a beautiful person , in and out, who left us too soon, yet in his short life he managed to leave a big mark. He is still remembered and loved by many people. Admired both as a person and as an actor.

His family has started a foundation to honor his life and promote the values he defended. River believed in positive activism. It is a form of activism that focuses on solutions to fix problems rather than denouncing the problems. While the typical activism focuses on action against establishment, corruption, etc. positive activism focuses on creating from scratch initiatives based on positive values.. This is my understanding at least! It is a much quieter form of activism but it shouldn't be underestimated .

Here's the link to River's foundation . Take a look, make a donation if you can !

I didn't know the Red Hot Chili Peppers dedicated this song t River back in 1995 :
One of the best songs from this album behind Tearjerker and Aeroplane.

The last song from, their 1995 album "One Hot Minute".

http://m.youtube.com/#/w...2Fwatch%3Fv%3Dz1WfqPfVoF

You are my god, you are my dog,
You kept me close, love never lost,
I called you hippie, you said fuck off,
Said you brothers a real punk rocker.

Refrain:

Somthings gonna happen,
Somthing very soon,
Transcending flesh could be a breeze
Sending me over the moon.

Friends near death, you gave respect,
Sympathetic intellect,
Choices are, for one and all,
All we are is, leaves that fall.

Thats all.

Always be loving you, now im away from you,
Always be loving you.

Round and round inside your head,
Smartest fucker i ever met,
Vicious fish bit at your toes,
Made you lie and numb your soul.

Refrain:

Somthings gonna happen,
Somthing very soon,
Transcending flesh could be a breeze
Sending me over the moon.

Mule donkey ass you bore a load
Of all creations tortured souls
Choices are, for one and all,
All we are is, leaves that fall.

Like no other, i love you you're my brother.
Like no other, i love you you're my brother.
Like no other, i love you you're my brother.
Like no other, i love you you're my brother.
Like no other, i love you you're my brother.
Like no other, i love you you're my brother.

Water flowing and i will drink it,
I will drink for you.
A part of me left that only you knew,
Will never be understood, will never be understood.

Hey, gone to stay.
Entire lifetime flash before me,
In a loving stream.
Hey mother May, I have lost a child,
But she gave birth,
To a loving stream.

Ooh, never know. When the gods will come and
take you,
To a loving stream.
Ooh, heart of gold,
The most special things you gave me were
From your loving stream.

In a loving stream.

Fuck the magazines,
Fuck the green machine,
See the human being,
In a loving stream

Fuck the legal greed,
Fuck the nothing scene,
See the family,
In the loving stream.

A poem I wrote about River, a couple of years ago. It's nothing special just finally decided I wanted people to see it.

 

Do you ever feel love?

I do.

It runs through me like a river,

it runs through me like you once did.

 

My heart was yours,

Did you know that?

You brought me alive from the ashes

I was no longer cold, I was flying high.

 

A ball of fire took you away,

My blood river was now dry.

You eternally give me peace,

For that I will always be at feet

 

Waiting for you to rise again,

like the phoenix you will always be.

Thank you for sharing your poem with us, TessaL.

You expressed your feelings for River in a poem - that in itself makes it special.

Speaking of Joaquin's brother River... I saw "Dark Blood" recently, the last film River worked on:


It's a nice little film... more of a Sunday afternoon TV film than a movie that should be shown in cinemas.

Thanks for the info, Admin. I'm not sure that I'll ever get to watch this film, unless it's shown on tv - and then it's not a given I'll watch it....depends on scheduling, whether I'll know it's on, etc.

Hi!  This is my first post here so forgive me if I'm not posting in the right spot.  I just picked the first River topic I saw

I wanted to post to let you guys know about a fundraiser I'm doing for the River Phoenix Center for Peacebuilding.  I need some help spreading the word (and getting donations), so if any of you could help me out I would appreciate it. 

For more info about my fundraiser, titled Peace of Cake, please go here: http://bit.ly/RPCPdonate

Thank you

KJ

Hi.  

There aren't actually many posters here but the forum does get lots of lurkers so hopefully some of them will see your post and take an interest in your fundraiser.

Good luck!
