Carlin, 71, Now With Joe Pesci


The attached video should explain the titles (but you have to go through 7:29 of bull s***).

I don't recall what age I began listening to his comedy routines on HBO, but Carlin had a way with language, analogies, and utilizing solecism that was new (to me at the young age of 10, 11, or 12), and always refreshing. My recent series of painting - Four Letter Words - was inspired, in part, by his Supreme Court case on obscenity in 1978.
