I'm quite shocked.

Seriously, to the point that I thought this was going to be a Rickroll.

After reading a couple articles that noted that he had a heart condition since the '70s, I guess it's not so entirely unbelievable, but still.

Damn... just damn.

Whoa, quite the shocker. I, too, was expecting a Rickroll.

That's just...wow.

Wonder what that will do to his career? Will he be forgotten, or will it just become better in his absence? I mean, like how painters become more popular after their deaths...

You got that from Something Awful diddnt you? Cause that meme is spreading around in almost every forum topic. EDIT- Wait, that was one of his skits, nevermind!

But yeah, for some reason I was thinking this was old news, then I remembered it was Richard Pryor that I was thinking about. Indeed, this news sucks.

Now for Carlos Mencea (sp?)...

Yeah, man, that's his "Seven Words You Can't Say on Television," and actually I haven't been to Something Awful in at least 2 years. Heh.

So yeah. For people who're probably confused:

This is just not fair. I never got a chance to see him live.

I shoulda prayed to Joe Pesci; I woulda at least had a 50% chance that he coulda lived.

This made me really sad. I love George Carlin. He said all the things that everyone thought, but was just afraid to say. His work was true genious. I think that he'll really be more known than ever now that he is dead. It's that whole 'you don't appreciate something until it's gone' thing.

I was just watching this show he did to commemorate his 70th birthday, called "It's Bad For Ya." I damn near cried with all the things he had to say about the world and how much he got to get it all off his chest before he passed.

It's actually pretty fucking nuts.

Here's part 1 of 7.

I didn't realize he was over 70 until I read more about his death. It at leasts make me feel better that he lived a pretty long life.

After watching a tape and letting it go all the way to the end, stop and then rewind, the TV came on. Turns out it's classic SNL from the '70s.

George Carlin is the guest host and does some stand up between skits.

Damn this is depressing.

Hm. That's a shocker. No offense to the guy, but I never found his stuff to be really funny. It could be because I haven't heard all of his comedy, but I have heard quite a bit. People who are fans have my condolences, and at least there will be others rising to be just as good as he was.
