We’re back in action with the next page of R&A, after taking a brief time out for me to deliver my ramblings on Joaquin Phoenix’s hoax. In other news, Lohan is back in rehab, Snooki has a “book” coming out (ghost writer, anyone?) and more importantly, Tony Curtis passed away (RIP).

Sorry folks, unfortunately this isn’t the next page of R&A, but I did want to chime in on the recent reveal of Joaquin’s Phoenix and Casey Affleck’s recent stunt on the celeb-obsessed American public.
While my hypothesis from the get-go was that they were yanking our chains, Joaquin was able to keep a public persona in which he quit acting, became a rapper, grew an epic beard, and fell into self-destructive pattern of celebrity cliches that were a reality for most people, for about 2 years. That’s a long time to pull a stunt like that, particularly when falling into the downward spiral usually sparks interest in your pathetic demise from the tabloids and piss rags that folks buy at the grocery store checkout.
