Hi, I'm Lyyyyle
I think Joe Rogan gets a bum rap. Why don't people like this guy?
We got to know him as a vital cast member on the most underrated sitcom of the 1990s, NewsRadio. He was also part of one of Dave Chappelle's most unheralded sketches ever, "Great New York Boobs."
He's a martial arts expert, earning a black belt at age 15 and winning four state Taekwondo championships. He's a fan of psychadelic drugs, ranting once about the greatness of DMT. And he's an outspoken opponent of joke thieves in the comedy world, once famously schooling Carlos Mencia. About the only poor decisions he made by my standards came from affixing his semi-star to Fear Factor and The Man Show redux, but I'm betting he got nice paydays out of them, and I'm willing to give him a pass on those underwhelming roles.
So when people dog the guy, I truly don't get all the hate. I'm not his biggest fan -- in fact, this post is by far the longest I've ever gone thinking about his career in one sitting -- but I do think he's a pretty cool dude. Anyway, I saw this clip today of Joe Rogan schooling a female heckler, and I thought I'd post it here.
Well done, Rogan, well done. No use of the n-word either, we love it.
Slack Link of the Day: Seriously, I'm done with the state of Florida. That place is too far gone, and it seems like every idiotic and backwards story comes from the Sunshine State. Mr. Bush, if you want to redeem your presidency, go ahead and cede that fucker back to Spain. The latest incident involves a 19-year-old suicidal kid ramming his car into the mall, Blues Brothers style.
Slack Video of the Day: While we're on the topic of collaborating with Dave Chappelle today, here's a video I just posted on HT of Mos Def performing one of them there freestyle raps on an early episode of Dave's show. I love this thing.
