On Suicide Commemoration Off To An Early Start

No, that's BS. Pete Ham of Badfinger hung himself in 1975 at the crest of their fame. Donny Hathaway killed himself in 1979 a year after a comeback with a #2 R&B duet, "The Closer I Get To You" with Roberta Flack. Johnny Ace scored a series of hit singles in the mid 1950s just before he killed himself while playing Russian roulette in 1954. Ian Curtis of Joy Division killed himself in 1979 at the top of their fame. Elliot Smith in 2003 at his height of popularity... I could go on. Get facts Jack.

On True Dog... Detective

Time Warner Cable's logo has enough baggage w/o lumping this on it. Ever see the eye of Horus? Look it up.

On The Before And After Of "Monty Python's Flying Circus"

There's a great book about how the Monty Python TV series came together - and almost didn't several times - called MONTY PYTHON VS THE WORLD. Did you know we have to thank Dean Martin and Owen's Wilson's dad in part for it?
