For Kathy's request, I scanned the tribute article from The Advocate. I'm sorry it's difficult to read, the quality is not so good... :(

First, they gave him the cover:



The editorial:



The article:










The last two pages are side by side, so the bottom of the last page is a continuation of the what Diana Ossana wrote about Heath, you should read it like this:

Michelle sent to me one copy (thanks again Michelle) and I just loved the whole thing, but that picture of Heath as Ennis (with James Dean) just touched my heart. It's damn beautiful.

Thanks Keren for posting this.  ^f^

Thank you so much Keren..

Every line in each page that I read .. there are tears in every word.
I know this is also happening to all those who were reading  the article..

The actor who brought us here.
The man who gave his all in his performance to reach the heart of too many..
To understand what is  love in every soul . in every piece of heart.

Thank you so much Keren, thank you.
Can't take my eyes off of you Heath.

First of all,thank you Keren,with all my heart... ^f^   :^^)
 I´ve found in a French forum this hommage that I´ve wanted to post here in a day like this: 2 months...damn¡ :\'(

Ennis’s eyes gone bright with shock, mouth opening then closing again. “Love?” Ennis said finally, voice strangling in his throat.

Jack smiled sad. “Yeah, Ennis. Love.” Leaned forward and kissed Ennis’s temple, whispered, “What’d you think it was, all this time?”

Wow, thanks, Keren, ynnaf, Anne Hathaway is amazing. I love the speech, especially "love is a human experience, not a political statement....until the political limits on love is smashed."

And her tribute to Heath... :\'(

What amazing loving parents she must have, to raise her big brother, who brought home his first boyfriend, and husband! That's love!

That clip of Anne Hathaway is wonderful. What an incredible person she is.

And the Advocate article is fabulous too. I finally got round to reading my copy of it yesterday (thanks, Missy :^^)) and it's one of the best tributes I've read.
He will be eternally missed, but he will never be forgotten

Christopher Nolan, accepting the Best Supporting Actor Golden Globe on Heath's behalf.

He was, as an actor and a professional and a human being, one of a kind

Charles Roven, accepting Heath's BAFTA.

This award tonight would have humbly validated Heath's quiet determination to be truly accepted by you all here — his peers within an industry he so loved.

Kim Ledger, accepting Heath's Oscar.

Oh wow, Keren....I'm speechless too...

It made my spine tingle to see Heath in this vid, its a beautifully hypnotic and strangely compelling video, I loved the music, the colour, the way it was shot, everything.....but I wanted to freeze every single frame of Heath and stare at him and not stop. 

Thanks honey for posting this.  ^f^

Not needful to say that, but I love the vid.

Thanks for the vid link Keren. Needless to say I'm stunned and feeling that punch in the gut again.  :-\\

This was beautiful, I can't believe it was finally online. They said the Drake estate owned it and would decide if they would release it. I hope they chose to, if not it will dissapear soon.

I think I've heard he shot it in London. Does anyone know if he shot any other Nick Drake videos or just this one?

As far as I know this was the only one. I saw the clip of 'Black Eyed Dog' weeks ago but I couldn't bring myself to talk about it, it's so deep.

The whole real video belongs to the Nick Drake estate and it will not be released in public, that's what i've heard. There are only bits released and those are available on youtube, the real thing won't be released.
But the bits i've seen and posted here are great, Heath did a great job!

It's a beautiful song. I wish I could hear Heath talking more about Nick Drake, about what fascinated him so much about this man. He said that he was practicaly obsessed with him.

I'm still haunted by "Black Eyed Dog", although I find it hard to watch the video. Does anyone have the lyrics?
