Dolemite Is Dead

Or is he? The mortal shell called Rudy Ray Moore passed away on 19 October after 81 years on earth. But this remains:



What if he is dead? It only means that Petey Wheatstraw, the Devil's Son-in-Law, has gone to claim what's rightfully his. He's the godfather of the eternal, infernal disco, now, and we who remain are only living off his leftovers. His like may not be seen again.

Yes, I hear he's sharing a cloud with Ed Wood.

Lah-de-freakin'-dah!!! Never saw "Dolemite". Some people might think Moore'd be on a higher plane than Ed Wood, though. Not too much higher, but......

You have to compare them on common ground. Check out "Petey Wheatstraw" for Moore's attempt to do special effects. They are special in the same way the small bus is.
