Goodnight, Mr. Butch

The Boston Globe reports:

«In a YouTube video posted on Mr. Butch’s MySpace page, he offered a buoyant view on how to live: “You got to be articulate every day and keep going on strong and straight and use your heart and all your might and all your weight and all your power. Do what you can, make it last for many hour, ‘cause once you’re dead, you’re done, you don’t come back,” he rapped, pausing before adding, “Yeah.”»

As a waiter at the Kenmore Square Uno’s, I remember Mr. Butch and the equally memerable “Mixed Nuts” air guitar team that frequented the area. I’m not sure I would count myself as an admirer of his bohemian lifestyle, but to each his own. He certainly appeared mostly harmless (but really, really baked).
