babies being taken into the office
And pointing out your mis-spelling. I am a massive Hicks fan.
just take offence to clever dicks when there's not really any need.
You took my original mistake and used it in the word sorry to make me look line a dick. I love it
at the most obvious and obligatory dis joke ever (which was done in an apologetic tone)
do you find it hilarious?
I'm too busy doing my ironing.
he was going to write with Eddie Izzard.
But then he died and i was all.... D:
Started to mist up when watching American: The Bill Hicks Story at the cinema. Like a nonce.
And my stupid feckin girlfriend has decided to have a Xmas drinks thing at our place.
just bill hicks' relentless all evening.
Might go, even tho I hate The Roxy. Your girlfriend does sound stupid - might be time to give her the nudge and save a fortune on xmas presents as a result?
...it's during the day?!?
I might actually be able to go now, never realised it was in the afternoon.
Fuck you right in the face
Way ahead of his time. Nothing much more can be said about him that others haven't already said a hundred times.
Between this and the news about Hitchens, this is turning into a really sad day :(
BUZZKILL IN THE HOUSE
unless you can point out which ones you mean?
Can't remember any homophobic stuff. My girlfriend finds his sex stuff / Goatboy very, very off-putting though.
so i can't prove it. but i have listened to some of his sets before that included homophobic stuff that i definitely wouldn't call ironic...but hey.
i think we both know it's not as simple as that
but as i don't have samples to hand i'm not going to push it
in fact it doesn't really prove anything other than he doesn't care for the military.
which indicates at that he had at least some degree of awareness of the unfair treatment of gay people in US society at the time.
Explain to me why someone with genuinely homophobic views would give a shit about gays not being allowed to serve in the military?
he says "if you're dumb enough" which is the general tone. i would agree he was more of a people-hater than any specific prejudice, but that doesn't mean he didn't have little prejudices that came through.
Also, the fact that the vast bulk of his rage was directed against white, heterosexual right-wing politicians and macho rednecks implies fairly strongly that he would be more on the side of the elements of society victimised by those people.
Lots of misogynistic material, not really any homophobic material.
Hey, I'm seeing why DaddyorChips is such a fan now.
Genuinely crying with laughter at my desk....
"If you're going to see Kasabian at the O2... kill yourself" going round in my head the last couple of days. I go home past that way and it's been wall to wall twunts both nights so have been repeating that in my head like a mantra :D
