rip george carlin

blogtopia responds to george carlin's death:

vagabond scholar

brilliant at breakfast

the moderate voice

crooks & liars

the carpetbagger report

a video tribute at mediabloodhound

first draft

lance mannion

the rude pundit

american street

lawyers, guns and money

blue girl, red state

pam's house blend

culture kitchen

talkleft

alicublog

watergate summer

martini revolution

all we can say is...motherfucker shit! piss fuck cunt! cocksucker! tits!

addendum: the sailor over at vidiotspeak was privileged enough to have worked w/george carlin once...and his remembrance of that night shows what made carlin a professional.

double addendum: with the passing of carlin, and stan winston earlier this week, as well as dick martin & sydney pollack recently, harrison ford's line as indiana jones in the new film kingdom of the crystal skull seems especially poignant: we seem to have reached the age where life stops giving us things and starts taking them away.

skippy, I added these in an update to my post (that links yours and Jill's, but Fresh Air did a good recap of past interviews with Carlin.

And Blue Gal linked Carlin's very interesting "What I've Learned" piece for Esquire.

All I can say is that if this is O'bama's base, he is one, fucked house negro.

(Oops, did I say that?)
