Sunday Reading: The Rise And Fall (And Rise Again) Of Chris Rock

Submitted by: fancylad 2 months ago in Entertainment


It's Saturday morning, maybe you're still in bed, maybe you're eating something resembling brunch while on the couch -- whatever it is you may be doing, it's perfect time to spend 10 minutes reading this pretty interesting Rolling Stone cover story on Chris Rock.

In it, he admits he was a shitty husband after divorce -- he admits to cheating three times ("one famous, one semifamous, and one a member of the retail class"), but like when a woman says she's only had sex a certain amount of guys, you can multiply that factor by three -- Rock only got caught three times. "Men, it's a lot easier to be faithful when no one wants to fuck you," he says and it's true.

I do not care for his brand of so-called comedy.
As well, I do not agree with his view of fidelity.
He's a schmuck on both counts.

Great read: "There are two kinds of talent in the world: the guy who shows up hungover 10 minutes before the game/gig (think Keith Richards or Yankees legend Mickey Mantle) and coasts by on natural charisma; and the grinders (think Seinfeld or Tom Brady), who hijack their talent to another level solely on their obsessive work ethic. Rock is firmly in the second camp, and owns it."

stifler To clarify - shrieking into a microphone does not count as comedy.

Yelling {I am probably paraphrasing here} I'm black, at the top of your voice, doesnt make the world hear you clearer.

Actually what it generally does is makes the rest of the world think "prick - shut the fuck up".

Some of them probably even replace the word prick with nigger..

Psssst! Fancy! Not sure what day it is in the Tequila Time Zone, but for most of America, it's still Saturday.
