I am a little younger than most people who write for this place so my main memories of Isaac Hayes are based around South Park, where he played perhaps my favorite character of the first few seasons, Chef. This is a shame because he was a pretty amazing musician as some of you all can attest. I know his hits, Shaft, Hyperbolicsyllabicsesquedalymistic and Lets Stay Together but I just haven’t given him a chance like I should have. I will correct this tonight, but for now I will just mourn the loss of this great musician and man.
