RIP George Carlin
How could I have let George's death come and go without a blognod? For shame.
Good comedy is always about the deepest truth, for me, and George dug down past where most other fear to tread. Or just can't navigate. Anyway, Kevin Smith introduced me to another side of the amazing talent of George Carlin in his movie Jersey Girl. Jersey Girl is a wonderful movie, I don't care what y'all say about it. Direct your Bennifer hate back toward Gigli. George kicks ass in this film. And of course he's outrageously funny in Dogma, one of my fave flicks.
Kevin talks about George in the past tense here in this column in Newsweek.
You've been touched by an atheist (two of us, actually).
