    I've told my son "I'll bust your head 'til the white meat shows!" It's just so hard to take in.

    I was absolutely shocked when I read this. I couldn't believe it. I thought for sure it was a cruel joke.

    Re: Bernie Mac, Rest In Peace.

    I was so shocked by the headline on my internet page. Only 50!
    I wasn't looking for a discussion of this in the movies forum (glad the Search found it!), because what I remember most about Bernie Mac is the very excellent Bernie Mac Show on TV. That was a truly great show. I will miss his talks to "America."

    This article seemed to eulogize him as a non-mainstream comic, but as an average white, middle-class, middle-aged woman, I always felt the comedy on his show was speaking right to me, so I think he was a lot more universal as a comic than that article suggests.

    Very well said. I would agree that Bernie Mac was incredibly talented at doing what comedy does best -- taking the most real and relatable moments in life, and finding ways to make people laugh and think at the same time. I really respect the way that Bernie handled his career -- he worked to earn some great opportunities, and shone in the work he did with them. But he appeared to remain grounded in the process, and recognzied that his artistic expression didn't make him any better than anyone else, and that things like family mattered far more in life that stardom. I think the void that will be left by his no longer being with us will definitely be felt for a long time.

    Re: Rest In Peace.

    I was watching the Olympics on MSNBC, and they had a short little newsbreak in which they reported about Bernie Mac's passing. I was totally in shock and my jaw was dropped for literally more than a minute. This is definitely hard news to take.

    R.I.P. Bernie.

    It's been on the news up here. So very sad. He was so young and talented.

    Mac's last film is believed to be Soul Men, with Samuel L. Jackson, slated to be released later this year.

    Re: Miscellaneous Celebrity News

    Bernie Mac died today. Sorry I cannot post a link. He was only 50 years old. What sad news. He was a brilliant comedian, and a wise, wise man. His TV show was one of the funniest, ever. The Hollywood community is going to come out in droves for his final farewell, so beloved was he. RIP Berney.

    I wasn't sure to put this here or in the music news. We've lost another.

    Soul legend Isaac Hayes dies

    (CNN) -- Soul singer and arranger Isaac Hayes, who won Grammy awards and an Oscar for the theme from the 1971 action film "Shaft," has died, sheriff's officials in Memphis, Tennessee, reported Sunday.

    Relatives found Hayes, 65, unconscious in his home next to a still-running treadmill, said Steve Schular, a spokesman for the Shelby County Sheriff's Department.

    Paramedics attempted to revive him and took him to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead shortly after 2 p.m., the sheriff's department said.

    No foul play is suspected, the agency said in a written statement.

    Hayes was a longtime songwriter and arranger for Stax Records in Memphis, playing in the studio's backup band and crafting tunes for artists such as Otis Redding and Sam and Dave in the 1960s.

    He released his first solo album in 1967.

    In 1971, the theme from "Shaft" became a pop hit and won an Academy Award for best original theme song. The song and the movie score also won Grammy awards for best original score and movie theme.

    He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2002.
