Stuff and More Stuff.

I heard it on my way to work this morning and knew suddenly that comedy will never again be the same. One of my all time favorite comedians, George Carlin, has died, I'm sure you've heard. I was deeply saddened. I wish I could have had the opportunity to have seen him perform live before he passed. I'd of loved to have sat, one on one with him and had a conversation about politics, religion, life. I found George Carlin to be brilliantly insightful and unabashedly honest. I was just listening to his bit on suff, and how houses are just a place to put all your stuff, remembering all the George Carlin stuff I've enjoyed over the years and feeling deeply pained that we'll never again hear the brilliance of his comedic genius when I read over at Tink's blog, about a video about stuff. A firm believer in synchronicity, and always following parallels when I come across them, I skipped on over there to watch it. I decided it was worth posting a link here. Thanks Tink!

It's certainly a sad day for comedy. George was one of a kind.
