DL Hughley

Born March 6, 1963

DL Hughley first dropped onto my radar when he was part of the Original Kings of Comedy. I had probably seen him before that but this was my first exposure to his style of comedy, his perspective, and his brilliant mind.

Noteworthy

  • Original Kings of Comedy – D.L. Hugley, Steve Harvey, Cedric the Entertainer, and Bernie Mac. These four comic geniuses killed it during this special.
  • Comedy Specials – Over the years Hughley has put out many of his own comedy specials for various networks. When you watch him on stage prepare to laugh and to have a lot of truth winged at you at the same time. Find all of his ‘stuff’ at his website.
  • Political Commentary – Hughley works with CNN and other networks. Like most comedians, this guys mind is sharp as a tack. He puts that mind toward social justice, civil rights causes, and injustice in general. Again, when he talks, get ready to listen.

One of the most beautiful things in the world I’ve ever seen or heard is people laughing, even when there seems to be so little reason for them to laugh.

Aaron Eckhart

Aaron Eckhart Born March 12, 1968   Aaron Eckhart was one of the bright points for me in The Dark Knight. And while I enjoyed Heath Ledger as a lone terrorist in that movie, I really dug Eckhart's work in the film. Noteworthy Erin Brokovich - This was the first movie...

I Am a Bad Gamer

I am a bad gamer. I hardly ever buy a game when it first comes out. I like a hard copy of the game and at times I am turned off by the multiplayer/online aspect of most games. I am not saying that I am opposed to first run games, but I am opposed to paying the money...
