Farewell Larry Flynt

Honestly. I hadn’t thought about Flynt in years and could’ve sworn he died earlier since he had been “quiet” throughout Orange Foolius’ reign. I was never a fan of his publication(s), strip clubs or brand in general because they were … Continue reading

RIP Hank Aaron

I was only nuts about baseball for several years as a kid but I’ve always known about Hank Aaron, the guy who beat Babe Ruth’s longstanding home run record. I don’t care if Barry Bonds allegedly holds it, there’s a … Continue reading

RIP: Helen Reddy & Mac Davis

These two singers and actors were staples for me growing up in the Seventies. It’s a shame they’re both gone and on the same day. Helen was more like Vicki Lawrence for me, an actress that sang but it was … Continue reading
