George Carlin, 1937-2008

Carlin Mug Shot

George Carlin died today in Santa Monica of heart failure at the age of 71. It makes me very sad to see him pass. His routines were a huge influence on me and gave me many hours of enjoyment. In particular, I liked the balls of brass he had in ridiculing consumerism in the acquisitional 1980s. He was also probably the first famous atheist I heard talking about atheism in plain terms. And, of course, he took a strong stand in favor of filth over Puritanism. The world is poorer.

I don’t know what else to say, except “Shit, piss, fuck, cunt, cocksucker, motherfucker and tits.”
