George Carlin // R.I.P.

George Carlin // R.I.P.

Sad loss in the comedy world today. One of America’s comedic geniuses, George Carlin, died of heart failure at the age of 71.

I actually had a brief encounter with him last year. I was visiting a friend of mine who’s a hostess for a restaurant down the street from my place. Carlin happened to be dining there with his wife. On the way out he gave my friend a $100 bill and told her to go buy some good pot with it, he emphasized good. Pretty cool move from the legend.

I grew up listening to Carlin’s Toledo Window Box cassette. Funny shit. He will be missed.
