was the greatest and most influential person and comedian ever.
And it's not that I disagree with his views I just don't find him funny. This is a failing in any comic.
I just sorta shrug and chuckle but it doesn't do over much for me. I'm sure many would say the same of Eddie Izzard or Richard Pryor but that's what it's about eh?
I used to have an mp3 of his stuff lying around somewhere but I think I might have deleted it accidently.
"People come up to me and say, "What's wrong?" "Nothing." "Well, it takes more energy to frown than it does to smile." "Yeah, you know it takes more energy to point that out than it does to leave me alone?"
yeah, that'll be Relentless, I believe.
and thought smoking weed was the coolest?
to think some people may just 'like' something, and find something 'interesting'?
was it the former or the latter i got you on?
but i get the feeling he wouldn't be nearly as highly rated or deified if he was still alive.
in america he struggled and banged his ahead against a wall for his entire career, and even by the time he died he was still being censored and was still unappreciated, but in the UK he just had this massive cult following. I'm glad he's still appreciated at least a bit still though, he's a hero of mine, bless him.
Hero of mine too. Sometimes erratic and sometimes insane but always heartfelt.

but it does open up the question: who would you say was the most influential person ever? it's impossible to come up with an answer (that's not a joke)
what with three of the worlds major faiths being descended from the concept of God associated with him
id say zoroaster was pretty influential
he killed a bunch of jews and then lost. influential?
but, Luke Leighfield?
have a handshake.
What Jesus taught was all good. Most things are generally pretty bad.
And I reckon people were being nice to eachother before Jesus showed up.
for anyone who doubts. pretty much him at his best here but it only made it to dvd recently. http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=NSew7oOghDY
I must admit though, he didn't have an awful lot of material. Saying that, a lot of his Golf War and Bush stuff still works. I'd love to know what he'd make of the situation now. The elephant is dead!
but George Carlin did everything about a million times funnier.
someone else has already done the energy one grrr
