    “Shaft” Gives the Shaft to Oscar-Winning Composer, R&B Hero Isaac Hayes, Leaves Out Famous Music from New Film

    The producers of the new movie, says Isaac’s son Isaac Hayes III on social media, refused to make a deal with him. This sounds a lot like what happened last year to the miserable reboot of “Superfly” without Curtis Mayfield’s signature score. You can hear what he has to say here:

    Isaac Hayes was a musical genius, but he suffered financially when he was alive. For most of his career, he lost the rights to his songs in bankruptcy. He was co-opted by Scientology, which in the end ruined his career and added to his ailing health.

    Sacrilege. Here's a live version of that great track (the band as well as the crowd seem to be enjoying themselves);

    Just asking for a friend here :p ; How old do you have to be before you're supposed to stop finding it funny to say, "He's a constipated man" instead of, "He's a complicated man?"

    Psyllium works for me (Yes, I know, too much information).

    It also apparently has lowered my cholesterol level as a bonus.

    Thanks Enthetan. I use one called Normacol (probably too much information as well), but yes I've seen psyllium recommended. There was one I tried where I didn't like the somedwhat slimy texture (and that might have been it).

    Anyway, back to my Isaac Hayes clip; wasn't that band tight? They must have rehearsed that one every way come Sunday; everyone in the band knew exactly what to do and when. (I also noticed the shape Isaac made with his hands when he sang "his woman" :) ).

    I've just found the setlist for that show (at the Glastonbury music festival in England in 2002) in case anyone's interested;

    I use capsules. No taste or texture issues.

    Yes, they were very tight, and they were having lots of fun.
