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.”
