Why Death Is an Ironic Mofo

Because Chuck Berry and Chuck Barris within a week, that’s why.

I just can’t with that. Flawless. I might fall over. Spot me. 

While Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds still take the cake, this is another wow moment for the death show, my friends.

Bon voyage to game-show guru and self-proclaimed CIA hitman, Chuck Barris.

Some people called him “The Baron of Bad Taste.” Haters. They were just jealous of his super-slick dance moves. Everyone knows that. 

Is Prince Freaking Out Right Now?

20 Mar

If you believe that life doesn’t end after this round, then Prince and Chuck Berry could be chatting right now, if Prince hasn’t stopped doing this yet because he’s so excited that Chuck showed up…

From middle-class beginnings to doing reformatory time for armed robbery to working janitor and auto assembly plant jobs to siring rock ‘n’ roll, Chuck Berry did a lot. Stellar run, Chuck. We bow and smile.

My gut was still sore from missing National Grammar Day, then—OOF!—Chuck Berry’s dead. But since I have this new commitment, I’ll also weave this latest gut punch into something blogtastic…

So, if you need any more reasons to love the hell outta Chuck Berry, here are five of them…

1. If you tried to give rock ‘n’ roll another name, you might call it Chuck Berry. — John Lennon

2. I never liked blues and I really didn’t like jazz. I liked Chuck Berry. — Johnny Ramone

3. Of all the early breakthrough rock and roll artists, none is more important to the development of the music than Chuck Berry. — Cub Koda

4. There’s only one true king of rock ‘n’ roll. His name is Chuck Berry. — Stevie Wonder

5. [My mama] said, ‘You and Elvis are good, son—but you’re no Chuck Berry. Chuck Berry is rock ‘n’ roll from his head to his toes’. — Jerry Lee Lewis

And Now This…

1.) How did three months pass?

2.) How can Prince be gone? It seemed he’d sashay and slay his way through eternity. He is, just in a different form. What genius. Thanks, Prince.

3.) Gotta post more than memorials. We need some good grammar fails. Stay tuned…

Best Funeral Ever!

17 Jan

Please tell me you’ve had the pleasure of experiencing TLC’s Best Funeral Ever. Please. 

Recently, Best Funeral Ever was followed by Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. I decided to watch that, too. Here’s my synopsis: TLC is no longer the learning channel, it’s a sadistic pusher of asinine, guilty-pleasure programming that does not, in fact, involve much learning at all… and I loooove it. I watched those shows with such delight that it’s probably not OK. I’ll watch them again, too. Help me. 

Best Funeral Ever is totally my new favorite show.
