Rest In Peace Bernie & Issac

We lost two very influential entertainers this weekend and I just wanted to take a moment to acknowledge them. BERNIE was absolutely one of my fav comedians and he will truly be missed. ISSAC is a little before my time, but I do remember him as "Shaft," especially on my fav show of all time the Fresh Prince of Bel Air when Will and Lisa almost got married and he was the minister. Both of these men will be missed and remembered through their work forever.

Oh and what's even eerier is that the two just filmed "Soul Men" a movie set to hit theaters in November. The two starred in the movie with Samuel Jackson...creepy stuff man. Here's the plot for that:
Jackson and Mac will play two former backup soul singers who are part of a famed group that fell apart once the lead singer went solo. Bernie's character went on to open up Car Wash stores and retire while Sam's character started robbing banks and ended up in prison. He eventually gets out. They haven't spoken to each other in 20 years but reluctantly agree to travel cross country together to the Apollo Theater in New York City for a tribute performance in honor of their recently deceased band leader.
