Greg Giraldo Dead At 44 From Accidental Overdose

Before I start, I need to remind people that we don't speak often of people until they're gone because we don't expect to have to say our last thoughts on them when they're here...

Greg Giraldo was/is one of my favorite comedians from Comedy Central's Roasts. I believe him to have been the undisputed king of the Roasts, and there are people who know I've felt this way for a long time. While I don't expect this post to be the ultimate tribute to the man or anything like that - I feel I need to speak something on the subject while it's fresh, matters, and is being searched >_>.

Anyone with half a sense of humor who ever watched one of the roasts, probably laughed themselves breathless because of the guy. His humor was raw, witty, and oftentimes over the edge... which is why I, myself, crowned him the King of Roasts. Comedy shouldn't know limits, and jokes shouldn't be censored. We shouldn't bind jokes with race, sexuality, religion, etc. This was a man who understood that jokes are jokes (a joke is NOT a direct reflection of one's personal opinion). Yeah, you can go too far with some people, everyone has a limit, but I appreciate even the jokes that piss me off because I know someone out there is going to laugh about it.

So Greg; enjoy the throne in Heaven, where you get to fuck with all the dead motherfuckers who didn't get to sit on stage in front of you... rest in peace!

I am disappointed by this. Microsoft has abandoned millions of customers worldwide in favor of their newly acquired toy, Skype. They flaunt it as a merger but the merging process is reported widespread to be faulty and does not transition your contact. They also have not yet ado…

You Must Be The Greatest!

"The irony was not lost on me: the man my trials had molded me into, was the master I'd spent all these years trying to find. I was lost and alone, awash with despair. I sought mentorship, I sought guidance- I'd fallen to my knees and begged for it. And now, there is no other way to say it, than to say I'd been blinded by suffering; I just could not see that my many struggles had been the hands sculpting me into the guide I'd sought. Where I once sought from others their forgiveness for my failures, I now forgive myself, and seek to help other extend the same to themselves. Where I once sought from my loved ones support for my dreams, I find now that they did not extend aid because they saw who I could be, and not who I was. I am my own master. Master, and servant - I am not above humanity, nor below it. I am of it, I am it. I am all that is human: life, death, love, loss, joy, and suffering. I am all of it, and because I am all of it, I am important, and necessar…

WWE Brand Split Mock Draft

So we're coming up very close to the brand split in the WWE, where RAW and Smackdown will be exclusive brands with exclusive rosters, and Smackdown will be going live every Tuesday.
Now, there are a number of factors that could shift the way the draft is handled. For example, we're still uncertain which show Shane and Stephanie will run. We're still unsure if they're certainly going to bring back the World Heavyweight Championship, or run with my idea and merge the IC/US titles and make that the main title on Smackdown. We're still not aware if tag teams will be split, if each show will have a unique division and title. We're still not sure if we're going to have women exclusive to each show and what that means for the Women's Championship.
Now, barring all surprise (not currently on the roster, and not NXT) draft choices, let us work with a few assumptions. First, I want to assume they will be bringing the World Heavyweight Championship back. I want t…
