I came across this yesterday and thought it was funny. I haven't heard of George Carlin before, probably because I don't usually watch American comedy, I prefer old British comedy. But what the heck, give it a go.
I'm not sure if anyone else will like this, his style is a bit like the old standups that toured clubland years ago. Wheeltappers and Shunters style. The politically correct brigade will perhaps cringe at his colourful language. That's a hint that he swears a lot, so don't watch if you are offended by profanities.
I don't like swearing in everyday conversations, no need for it, but as part of an act on the stage it adds a bit of extra naughtiness to the narrative, which makes me titter. As with a lot of his comedy, some of it is very close to real life. His observations are very quirky. Having watched some of his earlier work when he was a much younger man, he definitely developed a no holds barred technique in his later years. The younger George seemed to be holding back, the older George couldn't give a shit.
George is no longer with us. He had a large following, there are plenty of videos on yooootoooob, so I have a lot more titter material to watch while I eat my meals in front of the computer. Only hope I don't splatter the screen with a mouthful of mush.
I put some stuff out on the front, free to take, yesterday, slowly the pile is shrinking. The garage is beginning to look very tidy. Last night I did a late walk and my eyes were looking up to the sky rather than the ground. My friend Janet told me that the Space Station would be going over at 10.08pm, and yes, I saw it. A bright light moving quite quickly. The sky was mainly clear with a few wispy clouds, and there it was. It disappeared for a few seconds when it went behind a cloud, then came back into view and off it went over the horizon. Apparently you can get an app from Nasa which will send an email to let you know when it will be passing over. I don't know about apps, but this web site might have the information you need if you want to find out when you can see it. Spot the Station.
Right, must go. I've had an early bowl of cereals, will need a second breakfast at about 10am.
Enjoy your Wednesday. Toodle pip. ilona
