Via some Canadian E-rag:
Robert Kroetsch, a renowned poet, novelist, editor and professor, was killed in a car collision Tuesday night while returning from the ArtsPeak Festival, a weekend poetry fest in Canmore.
I mean, I don’t think “millions of people are crying right now,” or getting tattoos emblazoned with the word “hero” or anything. He never shoved a toy car up his ass, so I certainly don’t know who the fuck he is. Is it too early to assume he was drunk off his rocker? He is a novelist, after all. Has Roger Ebert weighed in?
Can we at least assume he was waaaaaaay too old to be behind the wheel? At almost 84, it wouldn’t be an erroneous assumption. Plus, he was being treated for Parkinson’s disease, which, as we all know, affects the motor skills of motorists. Five other people were injured in the crash, one critically. Should the elderly author be blamed? Why are more people not talking about this?!?!
Sexual chocolate. But we already knew that, didn’t we? Correct me if I’m wrong, but I think Stevie Wonder sang Jungle Fever at the man’s wedding.
I don’t always agree with him, but Roger knows a butt-load about the movies. I’ve consistently enjoyed his musings, and since the tragic loss of his voice due to cancer, he has been writing a lot. Unfortunately, his website loads for shit, at least where I work. They say the blacker the bits, the sweeter the juice, so I don’t see what the internet’s problem is. Stupid racist internet.
Anyway, he wrote an article about an article he wrote (how meta) about Hughley Hefner concerning the ever-present acronym, NSFW. In the article within the article (and the outer article itself) he included a tasteful nude (pictured above) of chocolaty love-sensation Azizi Johari. He spoke of her thusly:
I find the dark hue of her skin beautiful. Photographs like this helped men of all races to understand that Black is Beautiful.
My thoughts on the issue? I concur with Roger. Naked ladies, Huzzah! And who doesn’t like chocolate? Even at work. When the mid-afternoon shakes hit and the internet threatens to completely derail productivity, a taste of visual chocolate is just what the doctor ordered. Good lookin’ out, Rodge.
