20 Years Ago Today, Freddie Mercury Passed Away

Not only is it Thanksgiving — Happy Turkey & Sides Day, everyone! — it’s also the 20th anniversary of Freddie Mercury’s death. Mercury, the lead singer of, oh, the greatest band ever in my humble opinion, passed away from bronchial pneumonia resulting from AIDS in 1991. He died just one day after he revealed to the world that he had the disease. RIP, Freddie — your legacy lives on in the music you gave to the world!

Oops: Idol Winner Has Lip Sync Miss At Macy’s Parade

Entertainers of the world, we understand you need to lip sync every now and then. All we ask is that you at least come close to making it look real. Today at the Macy’s parade, American Idol winner Scotty McCreery most definitely did not, notes the Huffington Post. The recording of his “The Trouble With Girls” got off to a cringe-worthy start: See the clip here.

Patti Smith, When She Was Just A Kid

If you were a fan of Patti Smith’s moving memoir Just Kids, then you’ll probably be really into this great book of photographs by Judy Linn. But even if you haven’t read Smith’s incredible elegy to her friendship with artist Robert Mapplethorpe, you’ll probably want to check out Linn’s work. She and Patti developed a quick and fast friendship, which informed the intimate nature of the photographs Linn was able to snap of Smith and her various friends and lovers. Her photographs are a stirring chronicle of Smith’s pre-fame life, and a quiet glimpse into a true artistic collaboration.

What Are We Reading This Week?

I can’t be the only one thrilled that a few days off work means I have time to sink my teeth into a good book. Actually, it’s more like “a pile of good books that has been accumulating next to my bed while I rot my brain on the boob tube.” I can’t wait to put on my comfiest socks, cozy up with a blanket (and a cat!), and read the days away while my turkey-belly bloat subsides.

What will you be reading this holiday weekend? Anything good to recommend? Let us know in the comments!

My brother from another mother, John DeVore, has been busy at his other job as an editor at TruTV and Dumb As A Blog. Just this week, he managed to create 12 … yes, twellllllve i.e. a dozen … hand turkeys. The one on the top left — the Vulcan “Live Long and Prosper” Hand Turkey — was created with me in mind. Show him you appreciate his hard work and remedial art skills and click on over to see the rest of them. [Dumb As A Blog]
