“I Ain’t Scared of You Muthaf***as.”

by 4 years, 1 month ago Contribute
Today marks the 5th anniversary of the death of the late, great Bernie Mac. To honor the occasion, here's his infamous Def Comedy Jam performance, with some background provided by the film I Ain't Scared of You: A Tribute to Bernie Mac.
Bill Bellamy: Chris Tucker went out on stage, and KILLED it. Standing ovation. Then there was another guy on stage, and he got booed out the gym. Bernie Mac: The guy walked past me, his face was down. Right then Martin Lawrence couldn't even get the audience back in order. He said "Fuck it, let me bring the next one out." He said, "Shit...wish you luck who it is..." Bill Bellamy: Bernie was backstage like, "I done come too far for this." And he said, "I ain't gettin booed today young fella." I said, "Man they...they mean." I said, "This is New York. You never know." Ali LeRoi: When Bernie comes out, what he's reacting to is what they did to the other guy. So when he comes out and says, "I ain't scared of you mothafuckas," it's not a joke. He's telling the truth.
If you haven't had a chance to watch that film yet, I'd highly recommend it. RIP Mac-Man.

Last night, fans congregated at Holsten's, the ice cream shop where the final scene from The Sopranos was filmed. The table where Tony Soprano and his family sat had a "reserved" sign on it as a small, thoughtful tribute to the man who "changed television."

Updates On The Aurora Massacre

by 5 years, 2 months ago Contribute
In times like these, where the accuracy of a developing story is oftentimes sacrificed by major news networks in order to be the first to the headline, and raw facts seem to be smothered by untimely political bickering and useless celebrity commentary (ahem), I've found the collective research abilities of the Reddit community to be one of the better sources of breaking information. In regards to the tragic Aurora theater shooting by 24-year-old piece of shit fuckbag James Holmes, they have come through once again in force. A stream of updated information, curated by Redditor integ3er, is available here, here, here, here and here. My personal thoughts and prayers are with the victims of this senseless tragedy. Photo via
