My own flesh and blood told me I looked like Morris Day in this wedding DJ getup I wore this weekend.

Morris Day.

No chill.

Also caught a Russell Wilson comparison again. That’s a problem. He’s not going to get any less notorious in this area.

The people who compare me to people I don’t look like are almost uniformly white people, but both of these comparisons came from people of color. Is it the haircut? The summer skin color?

I see a couple differences here.

Whitney Houston’s album - like she only had one album? SMH - didn’t go #1 after her untimely passing. Her Greatest Hits album charted at #6 the week after her death, and Whitney had twenty-eight songs in the iTunes top 100 that week.


So as the week has gone on, I keep seeing more rememberances of Robin Williams. The one that stood out to me was Marc Maron reposting an episode of WTF where he interviewed Robin. The hardest thing about listening to this podcast is the honest sadness that you hear in Maron’s voice at the beginning and end.
