George Carlin

Always hilarious. Always edgy. Always provocative. Always keeping your stomach and cheeks hurting from laughing so hard. Always award winning.

RIP George Carlin. He was even doing shows the week before he died. And he just got an award last week. He was seriously THE shit. And he was 71 years old.
What was really cool about him was that he was more than comedy -- check this out from the New York Independent Media Center site: is it stand up comedy or political oratory?

I just got one of his older movies on Netflix a couple days ago reminiscing on how funny he was. Now watching it will be more of a tribute of sorts.


  1. I didn't realize he died until I read your post! That's what I get for listening to KDHX and not KMOX this morning.

  2. Hopefully you heard some good music, though on KDHX this morning.

    It was a lousy way to start my morning online. I guess we should have seen it coming, since he's been getting older and hasn't really been the best with his body over the years, but it still comes as a bit of a shock, huh?


I share my thoughts and would love to read your thoughts, too.
