I was going to try to write up something about Carlin’s passing, but I think I’ll just refer people over here instead. I really enjoyed this read. Thanks!

Like Kyra I missed the news that he’d died. What a shame. He was one of my favourites as well.

Good post.

kapgar: Thanks. I wouldn’t let this stop you from making your own post; his words have impacted many in different ways.

Kyra, Nat: I found out early this morning by reading the blogs of friends of mine (as well as my Twitter feed). He was quite the pioneer…

George Carlin was one of the only comedians whose humor I consistently loved throughout the years….he never got boring or lame.

He will be missed indeed.

Very nice tribute indeed, Shiny. Everyone in my house loved him. Rott used to spew some of his routines verbatim he loved him that much. It’s a sad day for the world of comedy.

I am happy that my son got a chance to know George. When he’s older, I’ll introduce him to the hard stuff!

George never disappointed me. Until Sunday. *sigh*

George will be missed. He was one of the first comedians I heard when I started listening to the comedy albums of the 70’s (Steve Martin actually was before him in my listening time line).

Nothing can beat “7 Words You Can’t Say On Television” That bit is a regular listen for me.

And not to mention his great roles is various movies, like “Dogma” and “Bill and Ted’s”
