>R.I.P. Richard Pryor

You can see Pryor a lot now in the style of Chris Rock, but there is nothing like the real thing. I remember watching some of his stand-up on television throughout the years, and he made me laugh out loud. Considering how I am, that is a feat. He wasn’t afraid to point out our racial differences, which I appreciated. His impersonation of a white guy was hellarious and dead-on. And it was amazing to watch him in “The Toy,” as “the black man” that a rich white boy wants as his toy. I guess I wouldn’t blame the kid. A black man as a playmate would make sense if it was Richard Pryor.

It was a shame when he announced he had MS in the 1990s. I am sure things weren’t ever the same for him. May his humor live on, and may he rest easy now.


>Boy, Pedro is Popular (A Shameless Plug)


It’s amazing what a political shirt with a tie-in to a popular film can do. These “Don’t Blame Me, I Voted for Pedro” shirts I made are selling like hotcakes since we hit the holiday season. They are available in different styles like jerseys and sweatshirts, too, in case you aren’t a man or woman in black. So, if you know someone, anybody, gifts from my store would please them all…whether it be a Pedro shirt or Jack Francis boxers.
Note: Hopefully the blogging will pick up for me again, but moving is a female dog…gimme a couple of weeks.
