I Think We Make A Real Sharp Couple Of Coconuts - I'm Dumb, You're Shy, Whaddaya Think, Huh?

by Rainier on May 17, 2010 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT | Filed under MOTD

A happening weekend: some good, some bad, some sad.

The good news is that we're home again, probably a few pounds heavier than when we left, but we'll work on that later this week.

The bad news is that FlashForward, one of our favorite shows on TV at the moment, got canceled by ABC.

The sad news is that Ronnie James Dio passed away over the weekend. For people who have no clue who Dio is, he was the lead singer for legendary rock bands such as Rainbow, Black Sabbath, Dio and most recently Heaven & Hell, a reunited Black Sabbath under an alternate name. Dio, who made the throwing horns \m/ gesture popular among metal fans, passed away at the age of 67 after a six-month battle with stomach cancer.
