Sad Keanu Writes An Ode To Happiness

| Filed under: Silly!Keanu Reeves

We're so glad he can have a sense of humor about that whole Sad Keanu thing.

So, anyway, Keanu Reeves wrote a book. And it's about sadness, which is absolutely perfect considering the source.

The book, titled Ode to Happiness, started out as a joke, but after friends heard of the book, they all wanted copies.

Keanu says explains the book's creation:

"I was in my kitchen hanging out with my friend Janey, and the radio was on. And this station was playing, like, an orgy of depressing, self-pitying, nostalgic music … It was so voluptuously horrible. And I just started to write on this piece of paper, because I had this image of, you know, that moment when you take a bath, you light that candle, and you're really just kind of depressed. And it was making Janey laugh so hard, I just kept going, piling on the self-pity."

Each page in the book features a somber line in blot letters that look like they've ben smudged by tears. The ending shows a single black hole, with the matching words, "It can always be worse."

And to make things even better, he plans on making a book of dark poems. He says, "I'm considering another idea I call Haikus of Hope. Basically like, 'I want to kill myself,' and go from there."

LOLz! Who knew Keanu had such a sense of humor?

Thank goodness for his ability to laugh at himself. He just fills our lives with joy and mirth. Honestly.

    Who knew Keanu Reeves had a sense of humor? Well, probably anybody who ever heard of Ted "Theodore" Logan.

    Re: Fibber – Seriously, how about just a LITTLE proofreading now & then? I'm sure there are millions of 1st and 2nd graders out there in need of a little extra cash who would be willing to proof these pages for you. The quality of the pages could only improve.

    I don't care what he does, I just love him….

    This jerk has no idea what pain is. Try being poor and getting an leg blown off in one of Bush's useless wars.

    Re: boston61 – Relax…. you do realize that all because people have money, that they don't automatically not get depressed?? Owen Wilson tried to kill himself. I'm not saying that they don't have a much easier life, but this idea that they don't know what pain is because they have money, is a bit cynical. There is more to life then money.

    P.S. one thing really bothered me about this article…. the fact that they told you what it says in the ending?? Why exactly are you telling people about the last page Mario? There are a few people that may want to actually read a book instead of flipping through pages to find interesting titles and pictures.

    The guy lost his fiancee and his baby daughter - It seems really tacky and cruel to mock him for not always having a smile plastered across his face.

    I'm not sure his intentions with this, hopefully he's trying to help people?…it kind of looks like he's trying to profit from his mental problems.

    Yeaaaahhhhh sorry Keanu, Ted will always be close to my heart, but…This book came into my work and it's umm, TERRIBLE. Not funny, lame illustrations, Overpriced.

    Re: boston61 – Just because you got life financialy solved doesnt mean that emtionaly your life is 100% good too. Also theres a lot of different depressions that could be caused by chemicals, hormones, etc. And whoever goes to a war either is cause that person wants to die, needs money badly or is a f* moron.

    WOW THIS IS LIKE THE WORST THING EVER> KEANU I WAS A BIG FAN but this shit. WHAT IS THE POINT> NOTHING FUNNY ABOUT IT>

    HORRIBLE YOU ARE A DUCHEBAG

    Re: boston61 – His child died, asshole. Most parents would trade any money in the world, their limbs, their lives, for their children to be alive and healthy. Apparently you don't know what pain is.

    Re: Fibber – and Re: calpurnia – - Umm, I think it is meant to be BLOT letters, because it's supposed to look wet… like he mentions in the rest of the sentence… sigh!

    Re: luvu2 – I doubt he's trying to profit…he's done too well for that. He's Canadian, isn't he? The Brits and Canucks can have a skewering sense of humor that also includes the darker stuff. He may as well have a little fun with it, cats can't dance.
