most shows with an ensemble cast have that variable straight man, I believe. Some are the straight man more often than others, but lin Friends, Scrubs, and Seinfeld, there was no one straight man.

I kind of liked the lack of the straight man in Napolean dynamite, the whole thing had a crazy manic energy to it because everything was so ridiculous.

I haven't seen it in years and don't remember much about it.

I actually rather dislike it when there's a single delegated straight man. They come off flat. I don't mean there can't be a more sensible personality in a bunch, but sometimes their character can be summed up completely by the term "straight man" and that's no good for a plot.

Elvis is on the same Island as 2pac, Biggie, Kurt Cobain, and Bob Marley.

Jimi Hendrix is actually dead though, go figure.....

Apparently before your time. :P

Biggie and 2pac were the two biggest rappers of the 90's, both were shot within a year of each other
Kurt Cobain was the lead singer of nirvana until he killed himself.

I refuse to even joke about Paul being dead because that means Lennon would be the last living Beatle. *shivers*

Also, I can't find the "Rock Band Nirvana" Penny Arcade strip. :(

I imagine smashing plastic instruments wouldn't be quite as satisfying
But that'd be pretty funny if they did

Or at least he would be if he came out of the ground and murdered Ringo Starr, which would be slightly unbecoming of him

Unless this is a reference to a "John Lennon is alive" theory that I haven't heard of

Sleet doesn't like John Lennon. It has come up a few times in conversation. the being shot isn't what made him a jerk.

Nah, but being a jerk is what gets a dangerous psychopath to target you.

Not to say that even begins to justify what that dangerous psychopath did, of course.

fair enough,
I prefer to celebrate artists that I dont paticularly care for as people for their music instead of hating them.

On a note unrelated to Sleet judging people.
(:P)

I'm starting my art classes again this month. There just once a week this time though, as opposed to when I had Monday through Friday over the summer.
Which is nice.
