What kind of fucking weekend was this? First on Saturday morning, the world finds out that beloved comic Bernie Mac has passed away from some sort of pneumonia-related “complications”. If that isn’t enough heartbreak, Sunday brings us news that the now-late, once-extremely great, soul innovator Isaac Hayes has moved on to a better place. In his final years, Hayes was better known for his Shaft-theme song and his controversial connections to Scientology, but in his time, this man was the definition of 70s soul.
We hope you’ve ascended to that great Thetan-free spaceship in the sky Mr. Hayes, we will certainly miss you.
