    I didn't know that pickling your liver and dusting your brain with smack qualified as natural causes?

    Eh, changing times I suppose.

    I wouldn't call him super, maybe just a freak. Is there even anything super about him? But at least he has the market cornered on freak!

    Some of the "wise cracks" are from The Chappelle Show, a comedy series, if you didn't know already.

    Self admitted womanizer, drug addict, alcoholic with a huge ego...what's not to love, you're right. RIP.

    My best memory of Rick James isn't of him or his music. Or, ahem, the Mary Jane Girls, but the lyrics of "Super Freak".

    This happened on a short-lived comedy on the Fox network. The name of the show? I can't remember that, but I remember it starred Vivica A. Fox and Jon Cryer. In this particular episode, they were trying to "rescue" a friend from a "bad" girl. As they were standing outside their friend's apartment....

    Fox: She's a very kinky girl. The kind you don't take home to mother.

    Cryer: When I >>got here<< she's got incense, wine and candles
    It's such a freaky scene.

    Fox: She's a super freak!

    Cryer: Super freak?

    Fox: She's super-freaky, yow!!

    I was ROTFLMAO....:D

    RIP Rick
