I have never wanted to see a video so much in my entire life.

I think I might be a little messed up since I really want to see the video.

Evidently he's  still funny - outgoing not so much

If this was a passed out drunk guy at a frat house it would be considered super lulzy. But as soon as you use the word "overdose" suddenly everyone starts losing their minds...
 
2018-09-12 01:29:03 PM  
This is really, really, horrible.


(But also kinda funny. Add me to the wants-to-see-the-video list.)

A family member said she suspects Kearby was given fentanyl-laced Xanax and that the men in the video should have called for emergency help. She said the video was degrading and that Kearby was a funny, outgoing man.


.....So he died doing what he loved?

Nah, that was last weekend.  This weekend he's being reanimated by a voodoo curse.

Yes, there was a sequel.  Yes, it was horrible.

I'm reading his book right now and while i never 'got' or cared for his comedy, godamn is his book hilarious.  I'm just about halfway through and i've caught m yself laughing the fark out loud at stuff.  what a life.

I never disliked him, i am just ambivalent.  He'll pop up on a podcast and not be, to me, terribly interesting or funny.  he's just a guy.  but his book, good god is it hilarious.

Oh, subby. You're just jealous because you know you'll never get any of that sweet, sweet, Hollywood intern action.

FADE IN:

Bathroom light with one good bulb flickers. Sounds of magazine rattling and grunting pause.

There's a need for my film. The story of fast food trucks mixed with cryptocurrency and awkward first love? That grant should have been mine! Oh the intern I could have had. "Bring me some coffee, Melanie. You do that real nice." Oh well. Back to it...

Abuse of a corpse isn't a law in Indiana?

Oh, gotcha. That only counts for mutilation of and/or sexual intercourse with a corpse.

He is always brilliant on Stern. There has to be a few of the interviews up on youtube you can check out. Bingo usually comes in towards the end of the interviews and thats when things get really funny.

did they sing "It's O.D. Doody time"? because then I'd let them off with a warning.

mrmopar5287: Abuse of a corpse isn't a law in Indiana?



I didn't dissect the article, pardon the pun, but if he was alive during the puppet show, he ain't a corpse.  guessing if that's why the DA won't go after the guys.

i forget if that would be legal or factual impossibility, but it would be one of them.

Another victory in the War on Drugs. Sure is a good thing we have strong conservatives like Jeff Sessions and Donald Trump to protect us by shutting down safe places to use, needle exchanges and prosecute users instead of providing treatment. #winning#maga

Thanks, I'm about to finish a lengthy book (on the 8th Air Force in WWII) and needed something new to read.

The only thing I have against Stanhope was his approach to Bingo's seizure from a cocaine OD that put her in a coma (or the head trauma from the resulting fall did).  Well, at least the SECOND seizure.  He essentially said "It's happened before, she'll live."  If you love someone who has had coke give them seizures TWICE it's time to get them to stop using it.

I was really tempted a few years ago, to drive the 2 hours to Bisbee.  It was right before the Super Bowl, and he was on Joe Rogan, and said he was having a come one come all super bowl party.  he was about to give his address and joe stopped him:  "dude.  DUDE.  this podcast gets literally, a million downloads.  are you sure you want to do this?  Is this one of your goofs?"

"not at all, Joe.  if someone's gonna get me, they're gonna get me.  and you have to really want to go to Bisbee.  it ain't exactly easy."   ".......well.....alright, man, don't say i didn't try to protect you from yourself."  "OK, it is 123 Smith Street, Bisbee, AZ.....bring your own shiat.  I'll have a little bit of food but, don't show up and drink all my shiat and smoke all my shiat, don't be an asshole, ok?  and if you are an asshole, my other guests will handle things.  ok?  just come on down, let's watch the farking super bowl.  and you can't stay with me afterwards, you're on your own."

i was so very, very tempted, just for the story.

he was on either Rogan / Carolla / Maron (??) maybe a year ago and talked at length about some really serious, "docs said she was 50/50, we were touch and go for awhile...."  he's just now starting to tell stories about her.
