Friday LinkFrogging - 4/20/12
It's been a rough week in the land of Geek.

First, America's Eternal Teenager, Dick Clark died of a heart attack.

Next, Levon Helm, the drummer for The Band died.

Then, the dude that played flute for Men at Work died.

The Game of Threes is over and the world is a less musical place for it.

I don't know about you, but I always just assumed Dick Clark would live forever.  I thought he'd be hosting New Year's Rockin' Eve to a line of Thriller dancing undead after the zombie apocalypse.

Alas, that was not to be.

I saw my first New Year's Rockin' Eve when 1979 turned into 1980.  I remember distinctly the girls watching it were WAY into the Village People, doing the then new YMCA dance ad nauseum.  The guys in the room were far more into Blondie, specifically Debbie Harry.

Those were strange times.

Mr. Clark soldiered on after a 2004 stroke, but he was never the same.  Neither was NYRE.

That having been said, I've worked my way into a corner that my exhausted brain can't segue out of, so I'm going to skip the segue and move right on to the cheesecake.

Say hello to Gabrielle Union.

Ms. Union is one of those actresses who seems to perpetually be on the cusp of being the next big thing.  Take a look at her resume:  Bad Boys II, Bring It On, Deliver Us From Eva, Cadillac Records and 10 Things I Hate About You.

She also replaced a then pregnant Sarah Shahi as Charlie Crews' partner on the GonzoGeek favorite, Life.

Despite a lengthy and varied resume, Ms. Union remains one of "those chicks."  Perhaps her role in today's new release, Think Like a Man, will be the one to push her on to the A list.

Think Like a Man is based on a book by Steve Harvey and co-starring Chris Brown and Turtle from Entourage.  What could possibly go wrong?
