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!

Tattoos And The Idiots Who Have Them

More and more in recent weeks, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. I’ve got no problems with people getting tattoos, so long as they actually have some kind of meaning to the person other than “I paid for it” or “it’s on me now so that’s what it means to me” or “it looked awesome”. More and more I see people tattooing the most random things to their body, most people covering their body with the nonsense… and more and more, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. Thank a friend via Twitter recently for showing me a picture of some idiot tattooing stars up and down the side of his face. This began my rant against face tattoos. If you’re in a profession or religion where it’s deemed appropriate, fine… tribal tattoos don’t necessarily cause this reaction for me. I also would never have the balls to call Mike Tyson a fool for tattooing his face. But if you’re just a run-of-the-mill Joe… you shouldn’t be tattooing your face with anything.

[9/29]Track of the Day

Track Title: Fuck You Artist: Cee-Lo Green Thoughts: This song is just... incredible. Cee-Lo is an amazing artist, and this track continues to display that. Lyrically, he says everything that needs to be said, and his vocal game is crazy. Great beat, catchy as hell... ...FUCK YOOUUUUUUUU! OOOO-OO-OOOOOOOOO!
