I see the senses along the way.

CraigSnyderMay 2, 2013

He was a very underrated actor and a comedic genious. Sad about his demise.

MugginsFeb 11, 2013

There's no evidence that John Belushi ever slept with Cathy Smith. Cathy Smith said they were "platonic friends" and nothing more.

He cried over spilled beer, and I say "No use crying over spilled beer." I was watching "Animal House".

I heard he was found dead and bare. I blame it on the drugs. R.I.P., Johnny.
