Wasn't Bob Marley Scrooge's partner in "A Christmas Carol?"

"Oh, look who thinks he's Clever Dan!"

Marley died from cancer in 1981 aged just 36.

Wow, I never realized he was that young when he died. That makes all the things that he did accomplish while he was alive even more impressive.

Bob Marley is a damn hilarious comedian.
if you are from the NE states..you gotta listen to that guy.
no joke. yeah, he shares the same name.. and that makes him hard to find on the p2p services :(

Everybody loves Bob Marley. Everywhere I go, it's the same old story.

Isn't Bob Marley dead? He's been dead for a long time, and I don't see that changing anytime soon

Marley's in D.C. with Kurt Cobain writing songs for the government. So, of course it's gonna be tough to get in touch with him. Jeez!

Actually Keith Richards died 5 years ago. Now he's just an elaborate flesh marionette.

"So I'm gonna have to jump!"

What exactly did he accomplish, besides writing songs and smoking pot? That's not to say that these aren't great things, but I smoke and hum little diddies all the time.

Why? Does he keep stiffing them or something?
2005-04-01 03:50:46 PM

Well, this should definitely help her chances in that Gaiman movie.

It always seemed a lot more heroicoontil I discovered he died from an infected toe.

Well, aside from becoming a national icon, inspiring pride in his people, motivating revolutionary thoughts and selling millions of records, he's not done much, I guess...;)

What's happening to everyone's posts? What is it, Practical Joke Day or something?

"I got all types of crazy crap."
2005-04-01 03:56:21 PM  
Maybe they thought Bob Marley was just "pulling a Pope" by being reported dead and then all of a sudden HE'S BACK!
2005-04-01 03:56:54 PM

Getting an interview with Bob is easy. You smoke enough dope, he's there. Wherever you are.

By Jah, I wish that Bob was alive still. I'd roll the world's largest fattie to smoke with him and just to hear his thought for the 10-15 minutes it would take to toke it.
