my two cents

most guys, including guys around my age group are fans of jocular humor. Regardless of maturity levels, guys tripping each other and getting hurt is the height of hilarity amongst other guys. The show Jackass has been a constant "go to" show for fans of college humor. The show spawned spin-offs, 3 movies and various would be imitators. On June 21st Ryan Dunn one of the regular stunt-men of the show was speeding on a Pennsylvania road in his Porsche in excess of 120 mph when he lost control and crashed. The coroners report states that his blood alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit in PA. Regardless of how it happened I think anyone would agree that drunk driving is a horrible, horrible idea that no one should ever consider. I count myself as a fan of Jackass and the spin-off shows and I think it was a waste of talent.  Rest in Peace Ryan

What ever happened to?

Many fans of 90's novelty rap might recall the group ABC (Another Bad Creation). The brainchild of Michael Bivins (Bell Biv Devoe, New Edition) Seen as competition for Emerging young rappers Kriss Kross, ABC was made part of the 'east coast family' along with Bell Biv Devoe, Boys to Men (according to the Motown Philly video there was another group in that 'family' ( a group of white guys, sorry don't remember the name)
