    Most excellent funny man.

    “If you don’t think drugs have done good things for us, then take all of your records, tapes and CDs and burn them. Cause you know what? The musicians that made all that great music that’s enhanced your lives throughout the years? Real fucking high on drugs. The Beatles were so fuckin’ high they let Ringo sing a few songs.”

    The world could use another philosopher comedian of his caliber.

    “Quit talking about Kennedy, man. It was a long time ago, just let it go, alright?” Alright, then don’t bring up Jesus to me … as long as we’re talking shelf life here. “He died for your sins!” Yeah, it was a long time ago… jeez, just forget it…

    Denis Leary stole his whole act.

    ‘Why is Denis Leary a star while Bill Hicks is unknown? Because there’s no cure for cancer.’

    ‘the easter bunny puts lincoln logs in your sock drawer.’

    if you like him, try doug stanhope. i’m seeing him on saturday.

    Christians are obsessed with the cross. You think when Jesus comes back he’s gonna wanna see a fucking cross? It’s like going up to Jackie Onassis with a rifle pendant. “Just thinkin of John, Jackie, just thinkin of John.”

    sylvanish turned me on to this guy. Such a shame that he died. Speaking of that, where the hell is sylvanish?

    Hubby and I had tickets o see Robin Williams in VA a couple of weeks ago, but he canceled because of some sort of heart trouble that landed him in hospital. *sigh*

    @thelotuseater725: Sl said she was going on vacation for a while on one of the forum threads (can’t remember which or for how long).

    Listening to Bill Hicks is an emotionally confusing activity. He gets tons of laughs out of me but I usually end up feeling a little depressed. At the same time, life looks stupider and this more manageable.
    And the laughs!

    thus* more manageable.

    The laughs!

    It’s a truly sad waste of an incredible talent and a fantastic mind.

    He was probably one of the most prominent cases of a man being killed by irony: he smoked pretty much continuously, to the point that he could get through a disposable lighter a day; he later died from cancer of the pancreas.

    Russell Crowe is working on a biopic; I’m presuming he will play Bill. After becoming friends with Bill’s mother Mary, she granted him the rights. There should be a completed script soon.

    @iamevilhomer: You beat me to it.

    “It’s just a ride.” This quote has brought me peace of mind on many occasions.

    “Wouldn’t you like to see a positive LSD story on the news? To hear what it’s all about, perhaps? Wouldn’t that be interesting? Just for once?

    ‘Today, a young man on acid realized that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration — that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively. There’s no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we’re the imagination of ourselves. Here’s Tom with the weather.'”

    It is my firm belief that this man predicted RickRoll when he talked about Rick Astley on… i want to say the sane man dvd…

    also, “i’m going to take the low birthweight challenge!”

    and, “How is the door a jar?”

    “Watch these pituitary retards bang their fucking skulls together and congratulate you on living in the land of freedom.” Pretty good description for the media’s coverage of the invasion of Iraq….
