Rest In Peace Bill Nunn

School Daze and Do The Right Thing were my coming of age movies.   


Damn Damn Damn Who can forget Radio Raheem? His peaceful, charasmatic persona is one for the books. But today, we say goodbye to longtime actor Bill Nunn, who died this morning in his Pittsburgh home, reports the NY Daily News.

The news broke when good friend Spike Lee announced Nunn's death via Facebook with a post that read, "My Dear Friend, My Dear Morehouse Brother- Da Great Actor Bill Nunn As Most Of You Know Him As Radio Raheem Passed Away This Morning In His Hometown Of Pittsburgh. Long Live Bill NUNN."

The two met during their school days at Morehouse College.  Rest In Power Bill Nunn!!

Happy Birthday Brother ...

My Brother Anthony Thomas Scardino from another mother

Anthony and I met when were 18 and 19 years old in Newark, Ca.  I was the direct one, and he was the shy one.  I asked him a blatant and direct question, which took him aback. LOL  Soon we were fast friends.  We immediately connected because we were HUGE Teena Marie fans.  At the time she was coming off her monster hit "Lovergirl" so the anticipation was very high, for her follow-up "Emerald City" which was considered a dud, I think it only sold like six copies in the world, Anthony and I had two of those copies, so automatically, I knew that he was worthy.  Through the years, we've endured the ebb and flow of life.  Love, loss, heartbreak and recovery.  I've always admired him, he always been responsible, strict and focused. I'm sure that he still has the first dollar that he ever made, in a secret back account in Siberia somewhere, but will STILL claim to be broke.  Oy Vey.  LOL

When I first met him no matter what plans we made, it could not be on a Monday.  That day belonged to his beloved Grandmother.  How cool is that, a 18 year old, honoring his Grandmother consistently, be it chores, paying bills, running errands for her, that was Anthony.  We mourned Grandmother, Aunt Melba, the loss of my mother Hazel, Ame, Teena Marie, Donna Summer and Whitney Houston.  Tough times, but we endured.  Now let’s talk about the big loves and heartbreaks, (hey Anthony BREATHE), I won’t tell everything, yes we've endured those too, of course Antonio (as his Mother Jeanette lovingly calls him), is STUBBORN, but of course he would never admit to it, but WE know.  LOL

When he decided that he wanted to do hair for a living, I said to him, how appropriate for you, a little gay boy, who gets to play with DOLLS for a living,  How original, right?  Well Mr. Scardino is still at it over 30 years later, and I will be the first to admit it, he slays, always satisfied customers, time and time again.

We share unconditional love, we tell each the truth, and when we get together, talk about fun, fun, fun, and laughter, laughter, laughter,  it's like no time has passed, we always look at the hotties, and of course we become 20 year olds all over again.  I've always been son #2 to Mama Jeanette, she knows it, Antonio knows it, and anyone who comes into our family fold knows it, and that's NOT going to change, some would call it bold, brash and intrusive to say, well I'll accept that, hey I gotta be me.  I love, love, love Anthony Scardino, and I could not Imagine a day in my life, without him.  I take pride is the love that we share.  Like Teena Marie would say, like rocks of Gibraltar, bumpety, bumpety, and STILL we rise.

Happy Birthday Anthony  We Are Family.
