Deepak Chopra Must Have A New Publicist

And they're hitting for the fence. For years, silence. He's over, you think. Like oxygen bars and impeachment hearings. Then in 24 hours, BAM! three completely different press mentions. Can you find the level of Deepak's room?

  • Hm. Nice grouping. "Deepak Chopra proposed Wednesday that the Pope, the Dalai Lama and himself serve as human shields to avoid bombing in Iraq and to rid the world of Saddam Hussein." [GoMemphis, via BoingBoing]
  • Aladdin, ambassador of peace. Just a minute ago on the CBC's As It Happens, they mentioned Chopra's proposal to build a Disney theme park in the Middle East, to "help the children relax and understand Western Culture."
  • "Gina de Franco, who organized the [Quest Magazine Mardi Gras] festivities [at Man Ray], wore tropical flowers in her hair and Halston couture. She chatted over dinner with Deepak Chopra about his four new book launches for 2003." Ahh, four book launches. Now I get it. [See "downtown diva" Deepak en masque at NY Social Diary. via the estimable Gawker]

  • Since 2001 here at, I've been blogging about the creative process—my own and those of people who interest me. That mostly involves filmmaking, art, writing, research, and the making thereof.

    Many thanks to the Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Program for supporting that time.
