Corey Haim is dead at 38 of an apparent accidental drug overdose. Haim is best known for his work in movies, such as Lost Boys, Lucas and License to Drive. He also appeared in the reality show, The Two Coreys. This is a loss to the whole world, obviously, but especially to comedy. The Two Coreys (Haim and friend, Corey Feldman) were regarded by some as Generation X’s Bob Hope and Bing Crosby.
And with the Haimster gone, is there any Hope left?
Though Haim’s oeuvre may have been less impressive than he (like most former child stars of the 80s) grew up believing, Feldman deserves a special place in hell for consistently and predictably throwing every single one of his “friends” under the bus in their time of need, then resurfacing upon their deaths like so much Ninja Turtle from the D-list sewer to pretend he cared about them in order to capitalize on the opportunity one last time. This includes, of course, Michael Jackson and Corey Haim. Don’t get me started. I can only take pleasure in the fact that his stupid plastic vegan wife left him. I guess the doors really opened up for her after she posed for Playboy. Now she’ll be looking for someone a rung above Feldman. Watch out, Danny Bonaduce.
Is Bonaduce really a step above Feldman? In taking a look at their individual bodies of work, we’d have to rate Feldman higher than Bonaduce. As yet, the Fel-Dog hasn’t beat up any tranny hookers. That we’re aware of.
Maybe the opportunity hasn’t presented itself yet. I hate Bonaduce. But if you don’t think Bonaduce is a step above Feldman, you haven’t listened to his band yet. May I direct you to Feldman’s musical career, which has only gotten worse since this was made:
Woof! You present some compelling evidence in support of your anti-Feldman stance. And were Fel-Dog’s oeuvre limited to music, Bonaduce would rise to the top.
Considering Feldman’s body of work, however, we’ve still got to give it to him.
It can be expressed mathematically thus:
Lost Boys > The Partridge Family
Touché. Danny and Corey would make a great couple though. They are pretty similar in terms of personality and status.
I wouldn’t rule them out as a couple just yet; life is long. Nobody thinks that either Bonaduce or Feldman will die of old age, but there’s a good chance they’ll make it another decade.
