This Girl Is Mentally Ill...

I was gonna take the day off from blogging today, but while cruising around and checking out new blogs I came across this gem--"What Would Thembi Do?"--I don't think I've laughed so hard (and out loud) at any blog in my life. Do yourself a favor, check out her site and get a good laugh.

Here's one of the milder (but film related) postings of hers :

Obscure Black C-List Actors: Bill Cobbs

Bill Cobbs specializes in playing "the old black dude" and has over 100 television and film credits to his name. He was the old black dude in single episodes of over 30 television shows, including Lost, My Wife and Kids, The West Wing, NYPD Blue, JAG, and Star Trek Enterprise. My favorite appearances of his were an episode of The Sopranos where he played a proud old black dude and an episode Six Feet Under where he played a proud AND stubborn old black dude. He was a recurring old black dude on The Drew Carey Show, The Michael Richards Show, and Kate & Allie. Bill Cobbs was also in the movies Sunshine State, Trading Places, and was the old black dude who shot Nino Brown at the end of New Jack City. He's still alive and kickin' at 72. Good black don't crack y'all.

She has random thoughts about everything from racist co-workers to what the best episodes of "What's Happenin' " are (which, in her opinion, was the Bubblin' Brown Sugar kids)--all hilarious.

I profile an obscure black actor that we all know by face but not by name every Friday - feel free to link straight to it if you want!

I saw this guy the other day (don't recall the movie) and thought, "is he still alive?"
