Bernie Mac – 1957 – 2008 – R.I.P.

Bernie Mac

Bernie Mac was one of those comedians that carried on a legacy… He was of that breed of comic that was considered to be “Raw”… The angry cussing, misogynistic, in-your-face, downright hilarious comic that said what we all wanted to say but we’re too damn wussy to do.

I don’t think there’s anyone in the pipeline to carry that torch just yet… So I think Bernie left us too soon. But here’s a tribute that takes us from Bernie’s early days… On through his heyday …And going on down the lineage to the originator…
Warning… None Of These Are Safe For Work… NSFW!!!

Thanks For The Memories Bernie Mac…

Bernie Followed Another Comic That Fit The Mold… And Died Much Too Young… Here’s Robin Harris..

And Then There Was Sam… Kinison That Is...

Even Though I Don’t Include Eddie Murphy In This Pantheon Any More… He Showed A Lot Of Promise Back In The Day…

Of Course … The Undisputed King of The Filthy Mouth Raw Comics… King Richard.

But… There Was An Even Earlier “Raw” Comic… But They Called His Work “Blue”… But He Was Redd…

I’m Sure There Was Some Sly Devil Who Inspired Redd Foxx… But We’d Have To Get Into The Old Party Albums To Talk About Them… But Suffice To Say… These Guys Brought The Raw Version Of Comedy To The Mainstream… And We’re All Less Uptight Because Of Them.

Bernie Mac Was The Latest Of This Line… R.I.P. Bernie…

The Tree Man Of Indonesia…

It’s Amazing the things that can afflict a human being… This poor man is covered with growths that make him look like half man – half tree.


Fortunately… People have stepped forward to help him get some surgery to remove some of the growths….


And Now He’s Getting Better…

Isaac Hayes – 1942-2008… R.I.P.

Issac Hayes

So many people are remembering this man as a cartoon voice actor… But anyone who lived through the 1970′s will know him as a music master of unparalleled talent… An awful lot of today’s musicians owe their sound and style to him… “Hot Buttered Soul” and “To Be Continued” were prizes of my album collection and are sitting in their own playlists in my iTunes collection.
