George Carlin, R.I.P.

The Brainy Gamer has a fine tribute to George Carlin entitled "So Long, Asshole".

I'm one of those rare individuals that has become more liberal as he has grown older, and so I wasn't historically a fan of Carlin. I found him too preachy-leftie. But now being a bit older and wiser, I found that when I watched Carlin on HBO here and there, he made a lot of fucking sense. He spoke truth to power, and that is what always makes the great ones great. Carlin was an inimitable comic. Rest in peace, brother.

Oh, and I guess I shoulda mentioned the gnomish person who prompted the post. Mentioned.

The Red Bull Diary Is
The Red Bull Diary is the personal pulpit and intellectual dumping-ground for its author, an amateur game designer, professional programmer, political centrist and incurable skeptic. The Red Bull Diary is gaming, game design, politics, development, geek culture, and other such nonsense.
