Goodbye, George

George Carlin Passes Away

The first comedian that was actually talking to ME. To my generation. He was part of the soundtrack of my life in the 60s and 70s -- Led Zeppelin, Hendrix, the Stones, George Carlin.

"George Carlin, the acerbic, Grammy-winning comedian whose career spanned more than 50 years, died of heart failure Sunday evening after being admitted to the hospital complaining of chest pains, his spokesman said. He was 71." [MORE...]
"When I die, I don’t want to be buried, but I don’t want to be cremated either. I want to be blown up."

In your honor, George, the Seven Words -- shit, piss, fuck, cunt, cocksucker, motherfucker, and tits.

It's hard to believe he's gone. He is a hero in my house, kids included.

It wasn't long after 9/11, September 11, 2001, that I began this website. I felt compelled to connect with other people around the globe. I had recently heard about "weblogs" or "blogs" and I dove right into Blogger.com. I searched for others to connect with online and I found Ageless. It led to meeting many great friends to discuss events of the day. From then on it snowballed. Most importantly we offered one another support and friendship across the globe; finding that we were just a few keystrokes away.
