Default RIP George Carlin:) 1937-2008

It is my sad duty to inform you all, if you havn't heard already, but Legendary Comedian George Carlin died yesterday of heart failure at an LA-area hospital.


Personally, he will be remembered as my dad's best professor in college before his comic days.
Yes, he was a college professor, I always thought it would be awesome to have him as a teacher
35 years ago, the year I was born, George Carlin uttered the 7 bad words you cannot say on live TV ushering in the "moral police", and the actual police.

Below are a few of my favorite things that Carlin did to make my life better over the years:


GC on the ten commandments

The whole Bill and Ted's Movie

This year's George Carlin FINAL SHOW 8-part special

Whole 74 minute 2006 "Life is Worth Losing" concert

.....RIP George. Thanks for opening my eyes

What a loss, such a great comedian.
And for those who remember "Thomas and Friends" in North America, he was a great narrator too.

Man, all the famous ones are dropping like crazy. He didn't look good on his last show so I guess that was a prelude to what was going to happen. He will be missed.
