George Carlin died yesterday in Santa Monica.
I'll miss the fucker. Fortunately, his work's gonna be around for a long time.
He's left us a ton of timeless, completely original comedy--unapologetic observations into the bizarre impulses and rituals of human beings that guarantee his work will survive as long as we do (and that's not really much of a guarantee, but hey).
"Always do whatever's next," and that's what he did, right until the end.
