Was unsure for a while about whether this thread was worth making or not, but I now feel my instincts are worth trusting, and even if they're wrong only good could come of it. So basically, one of my best friends went missing several weeks ago and it made me think: even though we all loved and appreciated him so much we never showed it. He;s one of the smartest people I've ever known and very capable in every aspect of his life so I guess we never worried that he had a dark side or would ever consider going missing (of course, he may not have, there is a small chance he was attacked or something). The lesson I learnt though, is that it's always important to show, or tell, others that you love them, and not just assume they realise. And I think, with someone like RDJ, who's out there on his own, doing his own thing, it's especially important. His public identity may be that of a cold, self-contained sort of person. But everyone needs to know they're loved. It just worries me that, at this point in his career... maybe he's struggling to come-up with commercially viable material, maybe he's struggling to move on after the split with his wife/partner, maybe he's feeling isolated and forgotten about, or that his style of music is out-dated... I think we can all agree he seems to be stuck in a bit of a rut at the moment. So my point is, I'd just like to say: thank you, Richard. Your music has given me so much (often at no personal cost to myself at all!), and I'm fully convinced you have what it takes to get out of this assumed dark patch in your life and keep making awesome music (released or not) well into your twilight years. P.S: I can smell a shitstorm on the horizon, but I think, for those of you who assiduously keep up with every new detail on RDJ in this forum, if you take a moment to consider the various signs, I think you'll find this thread to be justified.
