More on Eddie Murphy

falconieri said: BLASPHEMY! Raw and Delirious will always hold up.

» SFB says: I felt bad for not being constantly amused by those two great documents of comedy decades after the fact. :( (For what it’s worth, my opinion on the films largely lines up with this 2011 Vulture article.) Even if the films don’t hold up perfectly, the leather suits (especially the one in Raw) always will. — Ernie @ SFB

While I was on sabbatical, I watched a lot of movies. Among them were two of Eddie Murphy’s greatest standup hits: Delirious and Raw. Neither of those hold up very well three decades later, though they have their moments. (Sorry, Eddie.) You know what does hold up well after three decades? Robin Williams standup. You’re missed greatly, man.

"Dress for the job you have, not the job you want." I could spend hours catching you guys up on the Ferguson situation, but I’ll let John Oliver do it for me. As you probably know, so much of the commentary on the situation in Missouri has been embarrassing and unfortunate; when someone like Oliver (or Jelani Cobb) gets it right, we need to give them props.

More than one person in the streets of Ferguson has compared what is happening here to the chaotic days of the Birmingham desegregation campaign in 1963. And, like that struggle, the local authorities, long immune to public sentiment, were incapable of understanding how their actions reverberated outside the hermetic world where they held sway—how they looked to the world. That incomprehension was the biggest asset the protesters in Birmingham had. Michael Brown was left lying in the street for hours while a traumatized community stood behind police tape in frustration, grief, and shock: an immobile metaphor for everything that was wrong in Ferguson, Missouri.
New Yorker contributor Jelani Cobb compares the situation in Ferguson to a key moment in civil rights history.

I’m back in the saddle. Anything big happen since I went on my break? (Do I even need to ask?)

Know the Elmos in Times Square, along with the Hello Kitties, Batmen, and Iron Men? They’re unionizing.

This is how much this man was loved. His Wikipedia page is too full for people to even see.

Glad to see that the internet hasn’t changed since I last posted to SFB.
Hey guys, I just wanted to check in and say hey. I’m traveling this weekend, but I just wanted to give you a sabbatical update. The break has been good, and I have to admit I’m missing posting. But taking some time away and putting the focus on the job has been helpful for me.
So here’s the plan. I’ll be back posting on the regular August 18. Until then, I’d like to ask y’all a favor. Shoot me an ask—what are you looking to get out of your Tumblr experience? I’d like to give the site a narrower focus to make it more manageable and stuff, and any input from you guys could help me make a decision.
Now, anyway, who’s excited about this unauthorized Saved by the Bell TV movie? — Ernie @ SFB
