    When I was a little cracka watching Soul Train always blew my little cracka mind...Even the advertisements were like from another planet. And Don C had like the deepest voice known to mankind...

    The fact that he died during a HSS work week is pretty amazing

    The fact that he died during the 52 hours between the start of Howard's work week and the end of Howard's work week -- and not the 116 hours that Howard has off every week -- is pretty amazing.

    Makes me think of a bit way back when called "Throw Mama From The Bus" where Howard was speaking through a harmonizer as Don Cornelius, the narrator of the story.

    He always seemed like an angry guy (the Stuttering John clip is funny as hell), but this is fucked up. The guy was in his 70's and he blew his brains out?

    The best part of the show was when they would scramble up C-A-T on the board and the contestants struggled to figure it out. The Glock taste test claims another.

    Opie said something along the lines of "When you're 75, it's not suicide, it's controlling your own out."
