You better believe it! A lot of the things he says reflect the way I feel about things, but he also had a way of making humor out of stuff that would offend anybody. Sometimes when I feel fed up with people's attitudes I like to listen to Rant In E-Minor. Hearing him vent at the audience "YOU FUCKING MORONS! YOU.... FUCKING... MORONS!!!!!!!" seems to relieve tension. You could tell that he was a compassionate person though, and I think his humor was a way of getting people to laugh at the things that keep us apart.


--------------------
The very nature of experience is ineffable; it transcends cognitive thought and intellectualized analysis. To be without experience is to be without an emotional knowledge of what the experience translates into. The desire for the understanding of what life is made of is the motivation that drives us all. Without it, in fear of the experiences what life can hold is among the greatest contradictions; to live in fear of death while not being alive.

I wouldn't go that far, but I like his stuff. He's funny, and his comedy seems to have quite a bit of thought put in it, funny, and in ways thought provoking.

Everyone likes Bill Hicks here. Just do a search, and you'll see what I mean.

The mushroom community loves Bill Hicks like one of it's own.

LOL! It not just me then :smile:
If I'm having a shitty day at work I retreat to my car at lunch and listen to Rant - seems to do the trick every time!

I think Bill Hicks is tied with Hunter S Thompson for the shroomery's favorite celebrity personality

watching Fear and Lothing in Las Vegas will make the rest of HST's writing a LOT more interesting to read.

I've even read the stuff he wrote about football and liked it.
