Today is the anniversary of the death of Bill Hicks
I just posted this and it was deleted. Anyone care to hazard a guess which verboten keyword I must have accidentally tripped?
I suspect it's because the quote from the blog I gave just happened to mentioned a certain someone who has another website. Sigh. Grow up, people. Other websites DO exist and EVERYONE HERE GOES TO THEM whether you allow them to be mentioned or not.
"What made Hicks so special to me was that he was that rare breed of comedian who got the mix of snarkiness, spirituality and shibboleths just right, not too hot and not too cold, not too bland and not too spicy. He himself described his intellectual-asshole routine as "Chomsky with dick jokes."
Many have lauded Hicks for sneaking in little nuggets of truth about the JFK assassination and the New World Order, but I appreciate him most for sneaking in ludicrous-sounding-but-true concepts like hillbilly aliens and the illusory nature of reality."
