isaac hayes made from blue clay mask.
how sad was it to read of isaac hayes' death yesterday? i'm not sure why the news hit me quite as hard as it did but, i'll admit, i'm fairly depressed about it.
on a happy note, however, isaac hayes was the keynote speaker at my college graduation from umemphis. all 5,000 or so of the people in my graduating class (and the 20,000 or so in the bleachers at the (now abandonned) "tomb of doom") roared with laughter when he stepped up to the mike and announced in his deep voice "hello, children!"
isaac hayes, i'll miss your hot buttered soul.
