Conor Sullivan (ex-Oh Theodora) Gets Some Bad News!

When Conor Sullivan, a founding member of Oh Theodora, relocated to Los Angeles last year, the group continued doing shows as a trio for several months, before announcing plans to dissolve this Spring. This Wednesday, April 1st, Oh Theodora is performing one final show together, but apparently no one gave Conor any advanced warning before the announcement was made public.

Where Are They Now?: MC Hammer's "2 Legit 2 Quit" by Andy Boyle

We all remember where we were when MC Hammer’s “2 Legit 2 Quit” music video first debuted: Transfixed in front of our television sets. Many of us had to sit there because our parents couldn’t afford a remote control, and it was our job to change the channel.
