Rick James dead!
Cocaine's a hell of a drug!
"Today the world mourns a musician and performer of the funkiest kind," said Neil Portow, president of the Recording Academy, which is responsible for the Grammy Awards. "The 'Super Freak' will be missed."
EDIT: So Rick James and our president have two things in common. They both had coke problems, and they both went AWOL! Hot damn.

Feeling: cold cold
Listening to: agent179 bragging about beating me

He just couldn't handle the spreading of the Darkness.

Funnily enough, Mum didn't remember who Rick James was until I did my Dave Chapelle impersonation.

Odd thought

Chappelle does Rick James so well that it will be like he's not really dead. After all, there are many people who wouldn't know Rick James if it weren't for Chappelle.

True

I would know him if it wasn't for Chappelle, but that's only because I'm old enough to remember MC Hammer.

Re: True

WHOA, I remember MC Hammer. Actually, there were two entities: MC Hammer, and his pants. Damn. When I was five, all the cool six-year olds had posters of New Kids on the Block. I went back to my Led Zeppelin LPs and sulked.

I used to wear Hammer pants in middle school. Really.

Do you have pictures? Please please please say you have pictures.

Sorry, nope.

I tried to destroy all photos from before grade ten. Grade nine I had a crew cut and glasses.

Re: Odd thought

And to be honest, I think it'd be easier to look to Chapelle as the unofficial Rick James spokesman. I've never heard Rick James elucidate much more than "Cocaine's a powerful drug ... hehehe".
