Betty White: 1922 – 2021

I hate this post has to be my first official one back, but I have to do it. My late grandmother loved watching The Golden Girls during its run. As a child, I dismissed the show, thinking it was just a sitcom specifically made for folks in my grandmother's age range. It wasn't until I… Continue reading Betty White: 1922 – 2021

Biz Markie: 1964 – 2021

2021 has proven to be brutal regarding the world of Hip Hop. This year took so many beloved artists away from us: Prince Markie Dee (of The Fat Boys), Shock G (also known as "Humpty Hump" from Digital Underground), Black Rob, DMX, and now Biz Markie. I grew up on Biz and loved him well… Continue reading Biz Markie: 1964 – 2021

DMX: 1970 – 2021

When I was 16, LL Cool J released his Phenomenon album, and I had to cop that joint, seeing as LL was the center of my universe back then.

Dustin Diamond: 1977 – 2021

Just about every Saturday, I had to see what the Bayside High School gang was up to. Once the show went into syndication, I watched it almost… Continue reading Dustin Diamond: 1977 – 2021

Cicely Tyson: 1924 – 2021

Cicely Tyson was just on my mind a few short days ago. I was thinking about how she was in her 90s now and how great she looked at her age. Plus, I watched a video a week ago about Tyler Perry's shortcomings in film making, and it featured a hilarious tweet that read, "Things… Continue reading Cicely Tyson: 1924 – 2021

Tommy “Tiny” Lister: 1958 – 2020

I know, I know. I'm SUPER late with this tribute. Not making excuses, but I have to say that this Christmas kept me on my toes, and I didn't do a lot of writing this month. Plus, I wasn't exactly sure how I was gonna write this tribute. However, I had to post something about… Continue reading Tommy “Tiny” Lister: 1958 – 2020
