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.

George Carlin was the best comedian their was and ever will be. I have had the chance to see him live twice. R.I.P. George, no one will ever compare to you!

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.

    • My wife and I like to float down the Crow from Rockford to the Mississippi. Hardly anyone on the river except Bald Eagles. Found some nice chicken of the woods mushrooms last summer.
    • Trump got the information from Nunes. Nunes heads the House intel committee, but Nunes also was a member of Trump's transition team. Nunes then fed information to Trump (information that apparently nobody else on the intelligence committee has) about incidental observation of Trump and his transition team (a team that includes Nunes himself). 
    • A better question would be are you right?  Even the articles you link to don't really support your "most likely" assertions so you have to resort to everything is a lie as evidence, like Donald's twitter, and anyone that doesn't believe your alternative facts is an Obama luvin' librul. 
    • What projects have you worked on? Big or small lets see um. Anything, guns, boats, cars, Decoys.    I had fun reworking a few old Harley Golf carts. Didn't have any digital before shots to post. The carts I got were in very bad shape. Had to do a lot of fiberglass body work on them and some mechanical work to get them running. Just used boat seats as I didn't want to throw a bunch of cash at reworking the old seats and one cart had no seats at all when I got it. I took all the big chrome front bumper and bag bars off and glassed over the holes. Everyone had cracks in the front nose cones and rear ends. Not perfect but fun. Top picture is one of the nicer ones I started reworking.
    • Do you have any thoughts about what state you're heading to for this?  CO is draw only but there are lots of decent options available with 0 points. MT had leftover tags which is good because you missed the deadline already. WY has options you could draw. ND has passed. NM passed. UT not a good option with no points I think. ID may have some options but not certain. SD and NE may have some good options but I've never hunted either.   That's some basic info on states. Once you pick a state and get a tag it's really not complicated for the most part. Get elevated, glass up a muley, bed him, sneak in him without being smelled it seen, shoot him!   My son and I just found out we drew ND muley tags this year so we're pumped about that!
    • Just random ones I like. 1) Grand Marais fall. 2) HSO member Laker fishing. 3) Door County Wis.
    •   Yep and the Hawks won again!
    • Choosing 3 "best photos" is tough, but here are 3 of my favorites right now.  Cottonwood vs. Lightning Morel cluster  Pup in the snow
    • Missed the game but I guess I am glad I did. 9 games to go, still time to right the ship but at this pace the blues are going to pass us up.
