Funny, I actually stumbled across this video yesterday, as well!
I'll also recommend to anyone who hasn't see it to give it a watch, it's well worth the time.
Carlin is one of those dudes who's voices and material have been in the background my entire life. I was first exposed to him when I was ten and he
played Rufus in Bill and Ted's Excellent adventure and wrongly assumed that he was just some actor. As I got a little older I was taken aback to
find out that that the man who helped guide Wyld Stallyns to rock greatness had very relevant things to say and that my father actually had some of
his vinyl in the closet to prove it. Nice find!
-on a side note
(and I'll preface this by saying that it is only because of countless hours perusing the ATS boards that I noticed)
at 35 minutes and change into the video, as it's nearing the end, Carlin is talking about his IRS troubles and his former managers and taxes that
weren't paid and whatnot. He's voicing his grievances but then says, basically, that despite it all the US is still the greatest place despite the
drawbacks. at which point he flashes the OK symbol with his left hand. Now, I'm aware of all the theories floating out there about the Illuminati and
NWO and all seeing eye and whatnot. Carlin talks openly about it in his work(without speaking candidly about it). In fact it became the foundation
for a lot of his later word and social commentary. It's probably nothing. More thank likely it is what it is and it's just him making a common
gesture. But for a second I couldn't help but wonder if he was, in a non verbal way, identifying the source for 'drawbacks'. Anyways, I'm ready to
be ripped for this last part. I'm going to go out and get some fresh air.
love this man
