God bless and speed George carlin.. RIP
I will miss him so much its almsot making me tear... I first watched carlin when i was 9 years old...that is how i learned my first bad word, the F word, and as a result, of saying it aroudn the hsoue i got my butt reemed lol. BUt i alwasy LOVED and admired his political humor, and truthful humor about us americans, and how bad government is. He spoke the truth, starting in 1988, What am i doing in NJ....if anyone remembers that show. About how they wanna get rid of the toy guns, and keep the real ones, lol,. I remember watching an old sketch of him back in the 60's on Johnny carson.
For what its worth, the past few months, on cable(Io tv) they have been playing carlin episodes going back to 1978... that told me right thier and then, something was up. I sensed his time was coming. Only reason tv stations play past episodes like this, is to hoor or remember someone recently deceased.
George carlin we love you man...and despite you not beliving in angels and heaven, i truley and pray you are thier man

This may sound silly to some of you, but I don't care. I loved this man and always wished that he had been my grandfather. Everyone knows he woulda made one heck of a kickass grandpa!

RIP George Carlin

I am not someone you can bait into a flame war in an attempt to disrupt a thread. For future reference, however, you should know that sarcasm and blatant personal attacks are about as compatible as an acid and a base.

If anyone feels the need to respond to his post in a way that could potentially INCITE a flame war: please, don't do it. That is exactly what he's looking for.

Let's try to stay on topic. I think this particular video applies to this very situation.

Like many others have observed in this thread, I rarely get upset at the news of celebrity deaths. I usually have a "awww, that's too bad..." moment and leave it at that.

The news of George Carlins' death was not one of those moments. I was very saddened by it and felt a tangible sense of loss. I will truly miss him.

That said, I've spent most of this morning listening to, watching and laughing my ass off at some classic GC moments and thought it was fitting to share one of my personal favourites.

One of the best stand up comedians the world will ever know. I am happy just to have been able to watch him. Thanks for many laughs.

Good bye George.

Yes, it is you, and everybody is dying. It's the natural order of Life — we're all born, live, die, and go back to dust for recycling. Nobody has beaten the system yet.

Here's an encouraging hint, though, if you're getting anxious about it. Try switching off your TV and radio, stop wasting your money on newspapers and magazines, and spend less time on the Internet. In other words, trying just living without a deluge of useless information 24/7.

You'll be amazed — suddenly, it seems like hardly anybody is dying! Suddenly, there are fewer earthquakes, fewer tsunamis, no impending apocalypse, and much less overall angst in your world.

Point is, our mass communication networks produce the illusion that things are much worse than they are. Tune them out and have a happier, stress-free life.

I don't agree with your view of George Carlin, but thats neither here nor there. This post of yours is very good and spot on.

I'm not sure if you meant it to be a sarcastic, smart ass type response or what, but it is the unfortunate truth.

Good post

Man - that is a good piece of advice and one that Carlin would endorse wholeheartedly me thinks
I took a week off to go to a wedding and though I took my laptop I couldn't use it cause there was no wireless where I was staying...I used the house computer once a day to check my email and spent the rest sitting in the sun reading, thinking and - watch this - smiling
Was the best week I've had in months...

No, not smart ass nor sarcastic. I think that the majority of stress and turmoil in the world today is directly attributable to information saturation — makes the world seem smaller, gives us a false sense of involvement in situations and events that have no bearing on our lives, and creates the urgent illusion that civilization is "spiraling out of control," driving many to the very brink of insanity.

I didn't agree with a lot of what the guy said but I loved him. He made you think and question yourself on so many different levels. A true genius and free thinker. He will be missed and his life will be celebrated.

On Coast to Coast they are sharing a 2 hour interview they did with him several years ago. He's almost more interesting to listen to in this format. Just click the link below and look on that page for the 5 streaming links. You will kick yourself if you don't listen. It will probably be gone tomorrow.

RIP George.

now, I'm 15 years old
When I saw george carlin on youtube, about 6 months ago, I was astonished that there was finally someone TELLING THE TRUTH!
When I try explaining how #ed up everything is to people in school, I cite george carlin. Even so, they tell me he is a comedian and everything in the country is fine, and if I dont like it, I should leave.

We have ourselves another ENTIRE GENERATION that has been brainwashed. Hell, the last great generation in america were those hippies in the 60s who stood for peace, love, and sexual freedom. Now we got a bunch of uptight dumbass plastic fabricated kids.

I wish george could be around to see us destroy ourselves. I will carry his words with me forever.

he'll be missed forever

all the hippie dippie weather man.

Thank You
George RIP.
