George Carlin dead

20 posts in this topic

He was the King of comedy in my book, and it is scary because I am only 10 years younger than him. Really makes me feel old.

That is really too bad cause I really liked his style of humor. I have heard a rumor that he had a place up on the north shore that he liked to visit when he wasn't on the road.

I was sad to hear this on the news this morning. Was always one of my favorites.

A little piece of my youth just died yesterday. I feel a few years older now. I think I have every one of George's albumns. I might have to transfer them over to MP3's and listen to the 7 words you can't say on the air one more time. Rest well my funny friend!

One of my favorite comedians of all time. There have been many nights were I have been up late unable to sleep. Hop on Youtube and watch a bunch of carlin videos, eases the mind and after a few I was able to finally hit the sack. He was comedy to me. RIP George.

Probably my favorite comedian, probably because he was funny AND made you think. He found a humurous, yet poignant way of speaking his indpendent mind.

Here's a link to the Hippy Dippy Weather Man and some other of his routines.

That was one of his first famous bits. The comparison of baseball and football is priceless, too funny, and the 7 forbidden words are historic and groundbreaking stuff. Maybe we all should take another listen for old times sake.

I am already ahead of you... As soon as I heard the news I put on his latest album, Life is Worth Losing, in our room. In fact, over the last few months, I have got all of Carlin's albums in MP3 format, and have been playing them in my vehicle when rolling out on missions. I have gotten most of the Polish soldiers and a couple of my Albanian interpreters hooked on Carlin, they were saddened to hear of his passing also.

"And, of course, the funniest food: "kumquats". I don't even bring them home. I sit there laughing and they go to waste." - George Carlin

I laugh every time I read or hear that one. R.I.P. George, the world will never be as funny now that you are gone.

    • I was fortunate to see a tanager, blue-winged warbler, and a couple of young cranes all in one morning  on a walk in a park this week.       
    •   You will get plenty of recipes for a brine or injection, or even an injectable brine which work good for turkey breasts.  A common injection are the store bought ones you see in sporting goods stores in the cooking section. All kinds of flavors from Cajun, to Honey Butter, Garlic & Herbs, etc. Some even come with a free syringe.  Some simple injections you can make are apple juice (plain or jazzed up), beer with seasonings, a doctored up chicken broth and one of my favorites a Lite Apple Brine.  Since it's injected I like lower salt than you would use for an immersion brine.  My Lite Apple Brine's ratio is 1 gram of canning salt mixed into 1 ounce of apple juice.  If you buy an 8oz bottle of apple juice, just add 8 grams of canning salt, shake it and you are ready to inject.     Years ago I asked Old Dave, an online friend, for help on an injection for a pastramied turkey breast recipe I was developing.  He sent me a modified version of Shakes Injectable Brine, which is fancier than my Lite Apple Brine.... and guess what, I really like it too.  Here is the recipe... and if you want to read more, I'll have the link to my write-up below.  BTW, I was skeptical of the cloves, but I tried the first one following the recipe and it's good.  My only variation is I'll use agave nectar instead of the honey sometimes.    Old Dave's Poultry Injectable Brine, based off of "Shakes" Injectable Brine. 
      32oz clean water (non-chlorinated and not softened)
      1/4 cup pickling salt
      2 teaspoons of TenderQuick
      1/3 cup clover honey
      3-4 bay leaves
      1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
      1/2 teaspoon pickle spice

      Heat it up in a sauce pan but do not boil. For a 12-15 pound turkey, inject 2 oz in each leg, 2 oz in each thigh, and 4 oz in each side of the breast. 16 oz total per turkey. I like to do the injection at least 8-10 hours before the fire.   My Pastramied Turkey Breast write-up can be found HERE   EDIT, you smoke them until the internal is 165° to 170°.  An injection will help keep them moist even at the 170° temp.  I like a mix of cherry and hickory, but keep the amount gentle.  Apple would be a safe bet for your first one and you can always use a stronger wood next time.  
    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
