Tripping Along The Ledge


Sly & the family Stallone

If this story is true, then Sylvester Stallone is an incredible person… who is also (possibly) mentally ill.

    He babysat Mickey O’Rourke for a couple of years when everyone else turned their back on him. He seems to be one of those massively, weirdly, out-of-touch-with-reality yet awesome types. Glad he made it in ‘Da Mooovies’ if this preposterous pep-talk is accurate.

    ‘preposterous sounding’ I meant. ‘Cos if it was preposterous etc… Hate correcting myself in comment boxes, but it’s a compulsion.

  3. Eoin Says:

    Agreed. However, it’s Mickey Rourke, not O’Rourke. Just getting in before ya. Hope that messes with your head.

  4. Eoin Says:

    One word of warning about this story: Tony Robbins is a self-help guy with vested interest in exaggerating the power-of-self belief angle. What he says is so flattering – he doesn’t need to worry about Stallone suing even if it isn’t true.

    On the other hand, it’s on YouTube over a year, so at least its not stealth marketing for The Expendables.

    I heard the dog story before…Hes a savage man…Rocky’s the best feel good film since “Its a wonderful life”

    @ CrazyForker – You are who I think you are, right? If so, I told you the dog story at Electic Picnic. Shortly before you asked the massage lady if she did happy finisheshahahahahaha. Classy.

    I was eager for a change of conversation..

    Sly is incredible. His whole life story was a million-to-one shot just like ROCKY. He’s been thru so much put keeps on punchin’!
