I did it. I finally did it. Why did I do it to myself? Possibly because Halloween was this week. I watched Coco. Last night, after a perfectly fine Friday, and good week for that matter, I scrolled through Netflix and chose Coco.

They are usually a chance to see once in a lifetime collaborations, performances and tributes. Despite the #OscarsSoWhite controversy and … More #ChrisRockSoFunny
