Bill Hicks--Sadly, I Found You Too Late

Since I talk about censorship on this blog a lot, I thought that Bill Hicks would at least sort of fit, but really, I just wanted an excuse to share his impression of Mick Jagger with y'all. For those of you, like me, who didn't know anything about Bill Hicks until now, he was a comedian whose life was cut way too short. He was known for a comic style that played on his audience's emotions and his rants against consumerism. He also has a lot of good riffs on the way news reports are just another tool for politicians and advertisers to push their agendas through what is purported as an objective channel for communication (hee hee.)

P.S. This is a very funny video, but be warned: nothing by Bill Hicks is work-safe.
Happy Saturday :-)
