If you don’t know Wayne White’s name, you owe it to yourself to go watch “Beauty is Embarrassing” immediately and feel bad that his name passed you by the millions of times you’ve seen it. Part of Wayne and his work is in Pee Wee’s Playhouse, Beakman’s World, and the Smashing Pumpkins music video for “Tonight, Tonight,” just to name the three things that are quickest to name. He’s a brilliant painter (see a tiny portion of a mural of his in the photo above) and comedy appreciator and mixes the two wonderfully with his word paintings, which he intends to simply entertain his audience. He’s inspiring, insightful, and he likes funny shit. Listen to why he picked this amazing double-album from Richard Pryor.
