4:40 pm - Heath Ledger, dead?
Heath Ledger found dead in NYC apartment
Oscar-nominated actor reportedly discovered in Mary-Kate Olsen's home

NEW YORK - Heath Ledger was found dead Tuesday in a Manhattan apartment in a possible drug-related death, police said. He was 28.

According to the New York Times, Ledger was found naked and unconscious with pills strewn all around him in an apartment owned by actress Mary-Kate Olsen.

NYPD spokesman Paul Browne said Ledger had an appointment for a massage at the apartment. The housekeeper, who went to let Ledger know the masseuse was there, found him unconscious at approximately 3:30 p.m. ET, according to the New York Times. After receiving no response from the actor after shaking him, they called authorities.

“We are investigating the possibility of an overdose,” Browne said. “There were pills within the vicinity of the bed.”

The Australian-born actor was nominated for an Oscar for “Brokeback Mountain,” where he met actress Michelle Williams, in 2005. Ledger and Williams had lived in Brooklyn and had a daughter, Matilda, until they split up last year.

Ledger was to appear as the Joker this year in “The Dark Knight,” a sequel to 2005’s “Batman Begins.” He’s had starring roles in “A Knight’s Tale” and “The Patriot,” and played the suicidal son of Billy Bob Thornton in “Monster’s Ball.”

Ledger grew up in Perth, and began doing amateur theater at age 10. At 16, he moved to Sydney to pursue an acting career, quickly landing TV movie roles and guest spots on Australian television.

After several independent films and a starring role in the short-lived Fox TV series “Roar,” Ledger moved to Los Angeles and costarred in “10 Things I Hate About You,” a teen comedy reworking of “The Taming of the Shrew.”

Offers for other teen flicks came his way, but Ledger turned them down, preferring to remain idle than sign on for projects he didn’t like.

“It wasn’t a hard decision for me,” Ledger told the Associated Press in 2001. “It was hard for everyone else around me to understand. Agents were like, ‘You’re crazy,’ my parents were like, ‘Come on, you have to eat.”’

His latest role was in “I’m Not There,” in which he played one of the many incarnations of Bob Dylan — as did Cate Blanchett, whose performance in that film earned an Oscar nomination Tuesday for best supporting actress.

Some quick thoughts: Damn, still such a young and up and coming actor, I was really looking forward to the projects he would have after playing The Joker in the "Dark Knight Returns" sequel to Batman Begins. Honestly, I wasn't exactly a huge fan or anything of his, but this shocked me.

10:42 pm - sea..
Spring to life pictures, this page of white winter
For her, sweet nothings, everything in night whispers
A nerve, hunts for the meaning- is it pleasure or pain?
Prey that were dreaming or waking together again
Jet stream of consciousness, shaping whether it rains-
A verse condensing the hurt… lines sever the veins
Melt me open hearted, felt the emotions broke free
Into my scene of make believe blown in the breeze
this fabric of time, woven- now sewn at the seams-
the threads of fate unraveling, show me the dream
Tides of time slipped away days in waves from me
You and I were passers by wading in its streams
and soak those, wherever we make our home known
drowning yours & my sorrows; only cuz hope floats
Lost and found you at last, Ex drawn on my map
Treasuring your memory... drowned in my past.
breathe on a whim- i sit here & bleed with a pen
wash away the tears; well, i hope to sea you again...

3:18 am - Project Runway
Ok. This is my personal log for project runway. I've been keeping up with the show since the beginning, and its one of the only shows I watch on a regular basis. Dont ask me why, haha. But I liked it since the latter part of season 1 partially after seeing Jay's fashion week designs. For those of you who dont know, project runway is a weekly show on bravo. It comes on wednesdays at 9pm cst.

its my personal log.
Okay anyway, here it goes on whos left out of season 2:

Nick: ok..I liked this dude most of the season. I loved his designs for the nicki hilton and the barbie challenge. Nick also has personality, which is cool. I really like how they have nick and santino as friends and rivals at the same time.Hahahah. He is sort of old school designer, I can see nick going to fashion week. He seems kind of weird about explaining his garments thoguh. "Paris Hilton" and "Miconos" and etc. Annd screw what Micheal Kors says! He doesnt have that much vulgarity in his garments.

Daniel V: At first, I can truly say I did not like Daniel Volsovic's design or him at all. But during the season, hes been one of the designers to bloom into a fierce contender. He's won the most challenges. THere is no doubt in my mind Dan will be going to fashion week. Unless he terribly messes up somehow. Daniel V is only 24, but has a good eye, and cool persona. Im a full dan fan. Plus, his model has a hot body.
I think he symbolizes a youthful new wave of designing. Overall, hes consistent..probably the most consistent in the cast/group.

Santino Rice: first of all..he's got to be the funniest designer on the show or ever. HAHAH. the tim gunn impersonations, andrae and everything. You know, when the first day the designers were chosen for the show; I thought " this guy looks and dresses like a crazed army veteran or something" lol. He was definately a wildcard and drew a uniqueness. Anyway, i loved his sense of style in the "clothes off your back" challenge. I really want to see him at fashion week. But during the season, he's had some close calls that should of gotten him eliminated( for it not having the affect of the producers and tv ratings.) He would of; however, if Santino Rice can focus his creativity and unique style, he could get to fashion week and quite possibly win it.

Chloe Dao: First id like to say, its cool to see a Houston, tx native on the show and being so close to the top 3! I noticed chloe early on, and thought she wouls get high. The judged gave her recognition. I liked her designs most of the round. It seemed she was always a close second in winning. If she really wants to solidify her place as the top 3 she will need to to be even more creative, outside of the box and take a lesson from people like Santino, Austin, and Jay. Its great she thinks of a womans body, but hell, she IS a woman. Im curious to see her next round, in the previews I recall her saying " ive never done mens clothing before" and the challenge was for to do a designer makeover. She is designing for nick verreros. Only time will tell if she gets eliminated or not. I personally dont think so and certainly dont hope so. But that quote doesnt up her chances at all.
