Certain things that I used think to think were cool now seem all the more loathsome because of the self-loathing that accompanies the memory. The movie, HEATHERS, for example. Saw it maybe six times, loved it maybe five and a half times.
Man, I am SO over Bill Hicks! I seem to vaguely remember that I used to think he was funny, back when I saw him on the Comedy Channel, and I guess he had to tone it down a little. Maybe after 20 years of the internet, sexual insults that don't
I think this is the third time I've heard him describe some right wing pundit or powerful corporate media figure act out some grotesque sexual fetish. How many times did he say "scat-muncher"? And then he congratulates himself on coming up with that. It's not like Rush doesn't deserve it, but I don't think I deserve to have to listen to it. This is not funny at all, and keep in mind that fifteen minutes ago, I was posting in here about how much I love Conner O'Malley.
Five stars, for Rush Limbaugh being Dead. If there's a hell, maybe Bill and Rush are seated facing each other.

Maybe after 20 years of the internet, sexual insults that don't include jokes don't work as comedy.

Hicks always went to the gay-shaming well.
He was really shitty about George Michael who turned out to be a far better human being than Hicks.
I'll do an IZ blog style post since he's no longer with us:
I had a childhood friend that was basically a brother to me. Grade school to mid-20s, thickest of thieves. Sometime in his early 20s he had a psychotic breakdown that resulted in him being committed dozens of times over the span of a few years.
He started threatening to kill me and some other friends on a regular basis, began stalking us, looking in our windows at night and going through our trash. It got so bad that we had him over one night to have an intervention. I slept with one eye open and a champagne bottle under my pillow, because at this point it was not a strange thought to think that he might actually try to kill one of us and I was fully prepared to bash a bottle over his head.
It all came to a head when he had a string of about 3,000 psychotic Facebook posts ranging from Satanic conspiracies to claiming his dad was gay, and that Bill Hicks fucked his mom silly back in the day and the ghost of his true father was guiding his path towards saving humanity through comedy. He started driving to Atlanta on a regular basis to bomb on open mic night after open mic. Claimed he had a big deal with Sony that went under, let a methhead live in his bathroom, walked around in blackface a few times, tried to kill me again, yadda yadda.
Then he tried to kidnap this girl he had a crush on because he thought his dad was poisoning her clothes. She said no, so he drove off in the middle of the night and had a head-on collision with an 18-wheeler.
After all of that, he still thought that it was pretty likely that Bill Hicks was his father, and idolizes him to this day. It ruined him.
So yeah, I fucking hate Bill Hicks. I just hate Rush more.

Where iz IZ? I hope it's not that he's passed away. Then again, with his tall tales, even that might be fake news.
John Holmes Motherfucker
Well, I didn't mean any criticism of yogarfield. This is an entirely appropriate way for Poe TV to commemorate the passing of Rush. Yogarfield, youre not any more responsible for my rage than Bill Hicks is responsible for your friend's delusion.
What needs to be said about Rush Limbaugh, and isn't being said enough, is that he was a liar. He was exposed as a liar again and again and again, over 30 years.

This is awful.

Bill Hicks didn't die and became Alex Jones. Since people just believe whatever is fun, I'm going to believe this.
See my above rant. The friend that went insane was listening to Alex Jones for over a decade. I thought it was for a laugh at obvious nonsense. Should add that he's vehemently against the Bill Hicks = Alex Jones conspiracy, because Bill Hicks "is his dad and Alex is not".
Big fucking surprise, he's now an alt-right super Trumper.
He walked away from a head on with an 18-wheeler?
ooooooooooooooh, I get it
@nominal he crossed the median on I-65 in southern Alabama. Apparently ran diagonally across the front of the truck and barely clipped the bumper, sent his car cartwheeling into the woods. Almost died, several staples to the head that he wore like a badge of honor.
And the IZ disclaimer is just because that dude would always go on the strangest rants about his weird, constantly fucked up life. Sometimes they were welcome, sometimes not so much.
As for his whereabouts, he was a loud mouth that went silent very quickly. I remember seeing his youtube account, and it does make the mind wander..
I'm pretty sure 90-100% of his rants were made up.
I remember no matter what the video or what the topic, he would always claim to have a personal connection to the subject whether meeting them himself, or dating a relative/friend of theirs. Every...single...subject.
I figured his posts were manic episodes. He talked an awful lot about mood swings and medications.
@nominal I used to think the same, but I think it's more 50-50. I think he had some mental issues and this was his place to overshare things.
That said, some of his stories were about a Portland neighborhood that I'm very familiar with, and I can corroborate some very specific details that lent credence to some of his tales from that era, but he just as well could have been a nutjob walking those streets and making up stories in his head.
I also found his youtube channel, and.. how should I say this? The dude was going to be here whether be it member or a low-level exhibit.
