On the same day...

That is some garbage.

Anyway leave your condolances for Mike, Farah, Ed McMahon, George Carlin, Bernie Mac, Heath Ledger or whoever else you want to honor.

Err. I just came back from a viewing for my friends' grandfather. I know that they died, but I'm no longer heartbroken about someone's death, no matter who they were or what they did. Sorry!

That last part I can concur with you on. You don't take a wife, have any kids with her and then run off to a girlfriend somewhere else in the world. You shouldn't cheat on a spouse to begin with, but its not like he just was unfaithful to his wife; she is also the mother of his 4 kids.

What about Mike Tyson? People have talked trash about him soo much, but his little child just died not even 3 weeks ago. I was surprised by how hard that hit me when I found out. I feel so bad for him. Also Ed Mcmahon rocked, and George Carlin was a legend. Michael Jackson did Thriller.....nuff said....

Michael Jackson: early 80's, Michael's music got me shagged numerous times. Also, can even count the 100's of hours i'd practice my martial arts to his albums/cassettes.
Farrah Fawcett: ever see Saturn 3, woah, hot!
Heath Ledger: Heath leveled in acting before he died. Too bad we will never get to see his potential realized.
John Candy: John could make even a horrible movie, enjoyable.
Bruce & Brandon Lee: taken from us too early.

Remember these words of wisdom:

1) Love the one your with like it's your last day on this planet, for who knows, perhaps it is.
2) You only regret the things you didn't do in life. Don't let fear or hesitation or doubt rob you of your experiences.

Celebrity deaths seem to happen in 3's ... After Ed McMahon died, then Farah ... yesterday I commented after hearing about Farah to my wife, "I wonder who will be the third?" And then Michael fell to the reaper's blade. Strange ...

Have you seen the news about all the people who are in front of his families house writing letters with one gloved hand? Then the people in the Apollo theater dancing in the streets, the people in Gary Indiana dancing AND writing because they finally have something to friggin' do.

(Indiana is damn boring. Corn, Corn, Corn, Tornado, Corn....etc...)

I don't blame MJ though. If I had to do 50 shows in London I would probably rather die too. :lol:

I have bad news for you then...

it's only been one day. Just wait until they make a movie about Michael Jacksons life, or in a few days when his family speaks up, or even if the autopsy takes too long they'll start with the drug conspiracies. They've already started on the children. "Where are they going to put Blanket? Poor little Blanket!"


But I will probably watch that movie...I bet they go with something close to Moonwalker or something along those lines.

Alright then I'll take credit for it.

It's like if someone walks out of a kitchen and says "Did someone order this pizza?" Traditionally everyone in the room is supposed to raise their hands...

If nobody else in the room is going to raise their hand, then sh*t I'll take your pizza Thoth. :D

06-28-2009, 04:41 PM
I just read about Billy Mays. He was just on Conan O'Brien this past week talking about his jobs as an infomercial host. It was a wicked funny interview. He also just started this new reality show on Discovery I believe called, Pitchmen. Crazy he was 50. It sounds like he had a concussion or head trauma...

CNN is reporting that Billy Mays had a hypertensive heart condition, and this is most likely the cause of death, not the hit on the head. Cause of death is still not definite, waiting for toxicology.

Fred Travelena can be added to the list.

A comedian who specialized in imitations and appeared on the Tonight Show on several occasions with Johnny Carson died today at 66 from Cancer.

Everyday a new celebrity...

Come on Vince from Shamwow.....


(Only reason I say that is because his commercials are annoying, I want his job, and he's a Canadian Hooker beater.)

Lol, everytime I see a Shamwow commercial I say to the TV, "Does this product clean up a criminal record?"

I remember when Howard Stern used to be on public radio he had a list of celebrities and everyone on the show(crew, interns, everyone) would bet on which celebrity would die next. It was actually a really funny segment.

He was in Almost Famous and the only line he had was screaming "OH MY GOD IT'S DAVID BOWIE!!!"

And I can relate to that.

No because if you actually had to be able to sing like a rock star to pass, only rock stars could pass ;) Why don't they add 6 strings and 24 finger placements on the guitar while they're at it ;)

I played Guitar Hero the other day and can see the fascination with it. Before the other day, two of my friends, professional musicians both, one said he loved the game, the other hated it. All i could think of was the Southpark episode with Guitar Hero and the father getting no respect for being able to play a real guitar. Funny stuff.

I've argued that with GH flamers before. Because gamers are gamers and that's a simple fact. It's a fun game to play especially with a group of friends, just sitting around playing plastic instruments passing time and watching your life go by in some cases (the obsessive ones like myself that is.)

Sure I could pick up a guitar and do some online tab reading. I've actually already tried. But when I sound terrible on a real guitar...you sound terrible.

If you miss a note on guitar hero nobody cares and you keep playing the song and having fun. Guitars take time and practise to enjoy whereas I can walk 7ft to my right, change the channel and start playing some Queen. (That's right. GH1. I'm old skool.)

I've been playing guitar since I was nine. If it were as complicated as a real guitar, it would cease to be a game, and would just be "practicing the guitar" while a computer judged you, harshly. No thanks. I'm pretty damn good at guitar, but there's no way I'd ever play a game like that. Rock Band and GH are fun party games, if you have a group that doesn't get embarrassed if they don't do so hot. It also helps to have a singer with a wide taste in music... Nothing kills Rock Band faster than putzing through the list 10 times while the singer picks out the three songs they "know" to sing over and over.

I know most of the songs on Rock Band and GH. I'm quick to learn lyrics.

And the same goes for me kinda with Vocals. I've been singing all my life and the computer in that game judges me much less harsh then the people I sing around...rofl.

I used to love South Park back in the day. Like Family Guy though once it hit like 4th or 5th season it got to the point where every joke was the creators political jab at someone he didn't like. They should have studied the Simpsons carefully. 20+ seasons and they still tip toe the line gracefully and beautifully. I love that show!
