Comedy is Over

Norm Macdonald was the last and best man standing. RIP Norm. If you don’t understand, watch this old interview.

And he didn’t lose his battle with cancer.

I’m pretty sure, I’m not a doctor, but I’m pretty sure if you die, the cancer dies at the same time. That’s not a loss. That’s a draw.
— Norm Macdonald

RIP Kobe Bryant

After a weekend that began with Lebron James surpassing him on the all-time scoring chart, Kobe Bryant died in a helicopter crash at the age of 41:

Kobe Bryant died in a helicoper crash in Calabasas Sunday morning … TMZ Sports has confirmed. Kobe was traveling with at least 3 other people in his private helicopter when it went down. A fire broke out. Emergency personnel responded, but nobody on board survived. 5 people are confirmed dead. 

Why does anyone who isn’t in the military ever fly on those things?

He cared a lot

RIP Chuck Mosley, the original singer of Faith No More. This song is about as close as Generation X ever got to a generational anthem.

Note to Boomers and Millennials: do not take the lyrics literally. That is what GenX sarcasm sounds like.

Updated note: Okay, maybe we do care about Transformers, a little, since they really are more than meets the eye.
