Out of the Blue

I'm not above feeling pangs when famous people I'm fond of die, but it's not something that usually bothers me too much. But I'm especially saddened by the passing of George Carlin, as the comic had been one of my heroes for almost as long as I can remember. In memoriam, here's a collection of a few of his bits (link updated, thanks BicycleRepairMan).

One finger, but it was more of a pulsating click mode instead of normal clicks.

For a second there I thought you were referring to the finale of Metal Gear Solid 4...lets make you press 'triangle' needlessly for the next 3min!

Only using one finger? In other words, not cheating? 'cause if so, you really need to get into rehab.

Oh, I admit my arm is about to fall off now...

I maxed it out as well......but I can also beat the record on my NES for Track and Field without using a turbo controller.....so yeah.......sad.

You got a great body, but your record collection sucks....

I find that labeling George Carlin as a comedian or a celebrity doesn't do him justice, it gives me hope to believe he achieved much more than making people laugh and giving them cheap entertainment.

I will miss him so much, I remember watching all of his HBO specials over & over again. I was lucky to see him live in 2001.

I saw him last September, only major comedian I have paid concert prices to see. I was just thinking recently how he was close to my Mom's age and he dies just a day short of her birthday, personally, its a little wierd.

The classics nerd in me had to say this:

In Memoriam does not mean "in memory", as blue used it in his post. Rather it means "into memory" (memoriam being in the accusative case and implying motion towards). The idea is that when the person was alive he existed, but now he exists only in our memory, and that some day we all will only exist in the memories of others. I've always found the phrase to be quite poignant and beautiful, much more so than a simple "In memory of". At any rate, thought some of you might be interested.

Just looking through the links and noticed the Science link...
"Shyness drug could boost confidence."
and I swear in my head, I could hear Carlin's voice screaming,
"What the fuck kind of breakthrough is that?! Cocaine was doing that 30 years ago!!"
