I always liked Erik Estrada.
2005-02-04 04:15:04 PM  
Because, well, Lenny Kravitz is just so full of good advice.
2005-02-04 04:15:56 PM  
Like, never marry a Cosby Kid...

Advice on staying out of trouble?! Do you know how much pot that guy smokes? I'm sure you could guess, but I've seen it first hand. Great guy and all...awesome, actually...but he makes Snoop look like John Ashcroft.
2005-02-04 04:20:54 PM  
Has anybody got any info on the character Bumblebee Man was based on? He was a superhero or something, right?
2005-02-04 04:22:49 PM

From SomethingAwful's Worst Rock Stars Ever:

8. Lenny Kravitz One of the omnipresent background figures buzzing around the rock scene, Lenny represents the pinnacle of VH1-approved lameness. He is the wealthy son of an actress and a television producer, and as if that werent enough to instantly file him away under inauthentic, he also happens to churn out record after record of anemic 70s-syle stadium rock homage. Try to summon up a Lenny Kravitz single in your mind: is the title of the song either generic or an undisguised clich? Probably. Are Lennys vocals transparently imitative of Jimi Hendrix or Curtis Mayfield? Probably. Does it contain lots of fuzz-pedal guitar riffs? Of course it does. Lenny Kravitz has been releasing the same crap over and over again for fifteen years, and people who like to hear the same crap over and over again for fifteen years have been buying it over and over again for fifteen years. Rock and roll, in the hands of Kravitz, is all about workmanlike professionalism and predictable results and endless retreads. He is a record labels dream come true, because hell put out a gold record every two or three years without too much fuss or controversy. Hes a critics worst nightmare, because hes too popular too ignore but not bad enough to properly pan. Hes unremarkable, hes eternal, and he is crap.

It's a good thing we don't have smellivision, I heard he's kinda fragrant.
2005-02-04 04:25:00 PM  
Que lastima...
2005-02-04 04:25:25 PM  

He will give them topical advice, for example, how to be sucessful in the music biz despite poaching all musical sounds from the '70s and "being stale, unoriginal, formulaic, repetitive, and showing as much originality and passion as a tribute band."

/Actually like Lenny Kravitz otherwise.

2005-02-04 04:27:06 PM  
"well, first you rip off hendrix and coast with that a while. next, cover a classic song but try and make it your own. Make people think it's a feel good song, kind of like "Born in the USA". Almost there but now you have to hawk some crappy sweaters to the kids. Finally, cut your hair like a girl"
2005-02-04 04:28:03 PM  
Wasn't he banging Nicole Kidman after she broke up with Tom "I'm not ghey (yeah right) Cruise?
2005-02-04 04:28:13 PM  
I was disappointed to find that the article was not about Lenny posing in a bee costume for a picture on a box of soap.
2005-02-04 04:28:54 PM  
Don't forget to kickstart your career by courting and marrying an overpublicized teen actress.

Ahhh...nothing beats a Trailer Park Boys pic in a Fark thread. Randy would make an excellent Bumble Bee man.

I'm on the Mexican Telemundo, woh woh.
2005-02-04 04:32:59 PM  
Like, never marry a Cosby Kid...

And always have a good plumber on speed dial.
2005-02-04 04:33:24 PM

2005-02-04 04:34:32 PM  
SELLOUT - loser/has-been/sell-out

2005-02-04 04:35:24 PM  
Somebody build Lenny a time machine to send him back to the 70s.
2005-02-04 04:36:09 PM

SomethingAwful said it best I think.
Kravitz is just not much of anything. But damn is he rich and he sure does bang hot women. I envy that.

I think I know what's really going on here.

Lahey's got himself a new biatch.
2005-02-04 04:44:45 PM  
Canook, ya beat me to it.
2005-02-04 04:45:43 PM  
Hopefully, someone will post a pic of the Bee Girl.
2005-02-04 04:45:51 PM  
What's all the big fuss? Leonard Kravitz is a nice guy and a decent systems analyst.

"are choo gonna go mah waj?"
2005-02-04 04:50:19 PM  
No, dude who thought it was Nicole Kidman. I'm fairly sure it was Halle Berry that hooked up with him after what's-his-fark.

But don't quote me, it's been a while and I'm not sneaky enough to alt-tab past different browsers to look it up. If it was Nicole Kidman, I'd be surprised, but disappointed. Blame post-Cruise. That'll do it to anyone.

Ay,Dios Mio!
2005-02-04 04:55:59 PM  
Well, I liked him on the Simpsons. Even though he stuffs.
2005-02-04 04:56:42 PM  
that's the funniest thing i've heard this week
2005-02-04 04:57:23 PM  
SweetlyKali: Actually, he did hook up with Kidman. I doubt they hung long, but she definitely took a ride.
2005-02-04 04:57:49 PM  
Didn't he drop a huge triple coiler and flood the apartment below him a while ago?
2005-02-04 04:58:39 PM  
I thought only the Virgin Mary appeared in soap in Mexico.

Madre mia!
