RIP George Carlin - the PG 13 Obit dept
I loved that man, damn.
Comedian George Carlin, a counter-culture hero famed for his routines about drugs, dirty words and the demise of humanity, died of heart failure at a Los Angeles-area hospital on Sunday. He was 71.
Remember my dad or someone going on about how cool this dude was, first time i became aware of him when i was a toddler. I loved listening to him and Cheech and Chong, trying to inmate them, though it was a long time till i was allowed to hear the most infamous of his routines.
Always thought he was insanely funny even before i had a clue about how 'blue' he was.
well done you cranky old dude.
Laughs are cathardic, and i had other reasons to need cheering, a good Carlin Jag can be had surfin' youtube.
