Hey Everybody

Last night, and up until a few minutes ago, I thought it was going to be a hoax or that the information I received was all wrong. It had to have been a mistake. Instead, I'm in shock. I really don't even know what to say. One of the Himmmm's has died. Apparently he took his own life. No conspiracies or anything like that. There were witnesses. I really don't know what else to say, other than he was such a good friend to the site and was always there with a kind word or two thousand, because nothing he ever did was short or half assed. He went all in on everything he did. Damn, I am going to miss him.

I’m sorry to hear this, Enty. May he rest in Peace.
Thanks to him (and you) for adding some zest to my dull little life.

Angela said...

Given that there was only one of the four Himmmms who wasn't supposed to be a celebrity of sorts, that must mean it's the "not famous one" aka the actual writer of the blinds who's died.

bdm said...

And in the end, the love you take, is equal to the love, you make.

Go hug a friend, they might need it but maybe are too brittle to ask. You can literally save a person on the edge, with a kindness, a smile, a phone call. My depression is like a sneaker wave, it comes, you survive, it’s gone. It’s that moment of peril where a kindness can see me through. Depression is a disease, not a choice.

Mango said...

I was never a fan of Himmmm. I found it especially cringeworthy when readers eagerly believed (with Himmmm’s coy, tacit encouragement) that he was really Robert Downey Jr and that they were actually exchanging posts with him. Right here on CDaN! Such an ignoble deception. I truly am sorry for your loss of a friend, Enty, but I believed Himmmm to be a charlatan.

MDAnderson said...

Sorry for your loss Enty.

Coffee Bean said...

"...Himmmm to be a charlatan." end partial quote @Mango
Charlatan you say? Is that like being an actor projecting a false image? Who for some reason happens to be highest paid convincing liar. As in the act of emotionally triggering normies for a buck or the empowering hero worship manipulation.
Do not know which one of the Himmmmm's died, but this site is all about the actors and the Blackmail that controls them.
The only entity that is a better liar than an actors actor is the Blackmail Specialist. Pedo-Blackmail is like the Producers Producer. Cough, Spielberg, cough/spit.
Even the "made" lawyers tread lightly around these spooks. The drugs are first rate though, so the money flows...
Right Geffen and Co?
Could be why Pedo-Blackmail is worth more than the highest grossing movie to-date, just ask James Cameron. He just might be intellectually honest enough to give a straight answer.

This is my first post here in a good while and possibly my very last. So sorry to hear about this news. I fell out with himmmm months ago and ment to apologise and mend that bridge but didn't get around to it, I really wish I did now. He was a force for good in this dark world and will be missed!
If you plan to mend relationships please do it soon because you never know what's round the next corner and may never get the chance! πŸ˜”
I'll speak to you again Himmmm in that great gig in the sky.
Peace and love to everyone.

I just hope his children werent the witnesses to his suicide, but dude had mental issues, so it wouldnt surprise me.

Has to be Talley because he was only in his 40s and he was a leading guess for one of them Himmmmms. I'm sorry, Enty. So sad. May he rest in peace and please accept my condolences.

momo said...

So very sorry. Suicide is the saddest thing. THere's nothing anyone can do, really.

Unknown said...

How can himmmm be the imdb person named Talley Griffith? Only 1 single movie credit to this name back in 1995.

Anonymous poster said...

@Unknown -- Please. No trolling. Not everyone in Hollywood needs to have their name attached to every little crumb of fame. There are plenty of people who are nameless, doing big things behind the scenes, keeping scripts in hand and images recording. This Himmmm was an intergral piece of what we know today.

Angela said...

@Guesser

You know what's truly disgusting? Taking advantage of some sad event to settle scores.
Himmmm had been outed and his name repeatedly posted here in 2012, when he posed as RDJ, and got a lot of people interested in his true identity. Why do you think he left for years?

I had exactly nothing to do with him being identified. My only actual interaction with him was in the comments of his 2018 piece about the wild night Paul Thomas Anderson supposedly had two decades before, because it was obviously not endorsed in any way by the real Paul Thomas Anderson. The conversation with the guy was so surreal that it made me curious about him and the research that had been put together on him around 2012. I largely refrained from posting my conclusions or his name, especially as they were only tangential to this blog and its evolution.

And if you think that harassment is something that mentally ill people do and can result in suicide, making it more or less a murder, why do you use this event as an opportunity to harass me?

Guesser said...

I didn't see anyone mention Enty has a free podcast on Himmmm up now.

Anonymous poster said...

@Mango - Charlatan.... a master of misdirection who entertains and amuses. It takes a charlatan to survive the wilds of this business, but also consider the possibility that you have been a willing participant in the show.

DavidHowesCREBroker said...

HEY, READERS!

I have a suggestion.

How about we NOT GUESS who any of the Himmmms are or could be.

I like that they are anonymous and it should stay that way -- even with this passing.

Also, to the remaining Himmmms, My Condolences!

(Insert Heart emoji here!)

Certain people should not be speaking about taking the high road. *coughcoughdatalounge*

I've always enjoyed anything and everything the Hmmmmms have had to say and how they said it, how they told and tell their stories. It's always sad when anyone chooses to end their life. I have been at that precipice, I understand what that feeling is. Enty, I'm so sorry that your friend felt that he/she needed to go.

Guesser said...

Comment deleted. Most here have it in their inbox. I have no interest in getting rid of you or anyone else. I do not consider you responsible for someone's death. I have defended the Himmmm for years even while calling Himmmm out on things he wrote. I never once thought he was RDJ. I wondered though, why Mr. Downey was never as upset about it as others seemed. I will always wonder why someone filled with hate for something keeps returning. I would not.

Thia said...

@Unknown, if you listen to Enty's broadcast about Himmmm and his death, it's mentioned that a lot of his money came from pitching ideas and submitting treatments. I don't think those things would be documented in IMDB or any other "official" website.

@ Anonymous poster - I meant charlatan as in “fraud”. And no, I was not a willing participant in the show (which really blew up in maybe 2010/2011? I’m bad with dates). I just sat and read the Himmmm posts going “WTF??” at all the CDaN posters who were lead to believe that they were actually chatting with Robert Downey Jr. The energy and excitement here on the Himmmm posts was palpable, and I thought it was cruel and disingenuous of him to mislead all the folks here (and the newcomers who flocked to CDaN when they heard RDJ was a poster on CDaN).

@Angela, please, I'm begging you. Give a rest. Just for a few days.
Also, I agree with above post, he didn't want to use his name, and actually had many alias. Be kind

Please give it a rest. Just for a few days. He was a human being, with friends and family. You didn't know him personally. Just be civil

Angela said...

@Guesser

I've deleted most of my previous comments.

I try to be consistent in my behavior. Himmmm was never my "enemy" of any sort. At worst, he contributed to people assuming that information on this site was provided by actual Hollywood A-listers and insiders, but it was more a result of Enty asking him to pose as several people he admired to create some degree of ambiguity. The actual thing I called him for is that PTA regards Stanley Kubrick as one of the greatest directors ever, and says that meeting him was one of the highlights of his life, and this totally clashed with posting on a blog a story attributed to PTA where weeks before a really disgusting and made up blind on Kubrick had been published.

But, otherwise, when some obvious troll tried to pose as his real daughter and to share his name over and over, I called the person for what they were trying to do with his family. This was off-limits.

You can also see that I'm one of the first to protest every time Enty uses an actual suicide and turns it into an opportunity for a murder conspiracy, like in Kurt Cobain's case or with Anthony Bourdain last year, you know the story that involved Harvey Weinstein, the Mossad, Macron and a cast of thousands. I didn't know much about Bourdain, but the guy had been extremely honest about his struggle with depression. Using this tragedy to give weight to a different, fictional narrative was just shameful, and an insult to Bourdain's memory as it negated the actual toll of depression, the very one Bourdain was trying to educate people about.

From all accounts, the actual Himmmm had a very complicated life, with a lot of inner demons, and struggles with addiction. Most of his bio was made up. His legendary relatives? He was definitely not the nephew of a beloved actor. The actor was actually an only son and came from a different state. The actor wasn't either related to the silent movie director. All three just shared a last name. The guy, in some way, needed to connect with bigger names, and to project himself into model figures who had managed to turn their own life around, like RDJ. That may be why he made a compelling RDJ for some people. He really wanted to walk a mile in his shoes when he posed as him. That wasn't just an exercise in style, it was trying to find the same path, and it felt vital to him.

Mrs Libnish said...

This must have been the HIMMMM that was brothers from another mother with Brandon Lee. So very sad...condolences to Enty and the HIMMMMS.

I hope the remaining HIMMMMS continue the fight.

Nubian princess said...

Again, please. I'm not looking for a fight, or opinion. I just asked to let it go for a few days. Hes dead, and he loved. That's all.

Mrs Libnish said...

@Angela - you are a straight up freak. Go play with yourself elsewhere. Your bloviating is annoying. Also TL;DR

gauloise said...

So sorry for your loss. He was such a major part of the site, and early internet history.

Sorry for your loss.

Unknown said...

People go out and guess that himmmm is this person Talley Griffith. I did not make that guess. But once it is out there, check the facts available. Talley Griffith only has one imdb reference from a movie over two decades ago. This on its face does not support a person that has lots of ongoing inside knowledge about Hollywood. Yes a person named Talley Griffith passed away a few days before enty posted this notice about himmmm. The Talley Griffith death notice posted by a reader points to a person living in Stuart Virginia. Stuart Virginia is about as far from Hollywood as geography will allow. Some have speculated that this person, Talley Griffith just did not have his name attached to projects, but was very successful behind the scenes. The person in Virginia that passed away owns a home and only has one listing in the Patrick County property tax database. This single family, free standing home is assessed at $121,600. It is a small modest home in very rural remote Virginia. I'm sure is is nice cozy home. But none of this indicates a person that was successful and worked in Hollywood.

Anonymous poster said...

For everyone who is following this thread, please save the snark for another day.

Let's take a little time this afternoon for a moment of appreciation.

While I never met him in person, he was a part of our community, a brother from another mother.

His ability to take everyone's stories and make them better will be greatly missed.

Applepie said...

Daphne?

BlissBoo said...

I'm sorry for your loss Enty. xx

I honestly didn't "dig deep" nor read into much of what Himmmm said other than the PTA wild night so I'm not keenly/deeply aware of their/his/whoever backstory like some of the others. I am creeped out by some comments as if they knew the man and are projecting HIS feelings, what in the actual F? I don't know where people are finding out that he was depressed, an addict, etc., I assume on Enty's podcasts? Which I find strange because that's his personal business. Can't say his name, but we can talk about his troubles? Odd. In any case regardless of why, suicide is a powerful force that leaves a destructive wake in its path. I know because I've been there and never want to be there again. There's always hope, there's always support. Life can be unbearable as we all know, but it also offers us so much joy.

Angela said...

@Unknown (8:08 AM)

The guy definitely spent some time in Hollywood in the late nineties, the setting of almost all of his major recollections on CDAN. He had actually sold a pitch to Warner, with Renny Harlin (who was then developing Deep Blue Sea) attached as a director. Variety reported about it.

just sayin' said...

People, we all loved him. He, or the idea that he could be someone famous, made this site magic and made US feel special, close to fame. But he was just a guy. Yes, a guy who lived in a tiny house in Smalltown, Va. If he ever was in Hollywood, it was on vacation. No relatives there. No famous best friends. No screenplays, no pitches, no record albums, nothing but an AMAZING imagination and WAY too much mental energy to be contained by one ordinary human. As is the case so often with mental illness. He is gone now, and the Himmmm story is over. There are no other famous Himmmms to pick up the slack on twitter, no Herrrr, or you would have heard from them by now. Rest in Peace dude. You will be missed.

I loved his stories. I don't care if it was real -- he was a good storyteller. RIP.
