Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2008-11-25 
Swan song for Carlin. Pulling no punches. For years his comedy was considered “edgy” and he was a draw in Vegas despite growing his hair long in the early 70’s. Carlin did some tame stuff, did some terrible movies (“Car Wash” not included). He always seemed to keep his subversiveness “accessible”. But listening to this, one gets the feeling that he realized that was going to die soon and he best leave a good mark on this world, call out the phonies, call out the trivial, call out the ridiculous double standards that plague us all. Theres even moments where I swear he is ripping off the kings of irreverence, Bill Hicks namely. So if you ever considered Carlin as late night t.v. comedy fare, think again. I spent a almost as much time cleaing up this cd as I did Richard Pryor.

1) America needs better icons, and why I hate Lance Armstrong and Tiger Woods
2) I’m an old fuck, not an old fart or old man
3) crossing out your dead friends from your addresss book
4) ridiculous death rituals, religion is absurd
5) people who are dead don’t give a shit about us, don’t “look down and smile”
6) Red White and Blue: Why we should shit can the bald eagle in favor for Uncle Same getting a hand-job from Lady Liberty (statue of Lib.)
7) god helps the constant B.S. of
America
8) uselessness of worship
9) stupid people and their phone calls bad boring phone calls, who cares about your boring family
10) more boring suck-ass people talking about abou their kids, who gives a FUCK about these spawn
11) American Okeydoke, “bullshit is the glue that binds us as a nation”, the American Dream is pounded into our heads from childhood and we’re duped, “nobody questions anymore”
12) ripping on Bush, Barbara, all that crap but Carlin style so lookout!,
Questioning authority, national and ethnic pride
13) hats and religion, swearing on the bible, “does god give a fuck about details like this?”
14) “theres no such thing as rights”, rights are a cute idea, hypocrisy, god would’ve been looking out for you if your “rights” came from god
