in my opinion, every girl [and guy for that matter] is entitled to have a crush outside of their spouse (now that doesn't mean on your guy's best friend or brother or acquaintance). it's always safer when it's a celebrity or someone that you'll never cross paths with, for obvious reasons. well, for jason, i think it's safe to say that he never has to worry about my all time crush sadly.

for those of you who aren't familiar with bill hicks - you should be. i was introduced to his comedy by my great friend bari and i was immediately hooked. after reading various biographies and listening to and watching his skits repeatedly, i fell in love with his progressive ideas and his timeless jokes/ lessons.

this has all come up because on friday (january 30th) bill hick's mother will be on david letterman and they will play the infamous skit that never aired due to controversy surrounding the comedy material (long story). this is HUGE! bill hicks died shortly after the filming for this bit on letterman from pancreatic cancer at the [very] young age of 32. he was a timeless and very inspirational comedian who sought not only to make people laugh, but to educate and inform them. he is very dearly missed but his imprint on comedy will last always.

and if he was still alive, he'd definitely give jason a run for his money (even if he still had the mullet) - just kidding...kind of. ;) anyways, make sure you tune in on friday! you won't regret it! also, check out for more info!

"the world is like a ride at an amusement park. it goes up and down and round and round. it has thrills and chills and it's very brightly coloured and it's very loud and it's fun, for a while. some people have been on the ride for a long time, and they begin to question: is this real, or is this just a ride? and other people have remembered, and they come back to us, they say, "hey – don't worry, don't be afraid, ever, because, this is just a ride ..." and we ... kill those people. ha ha, "shut him up. we have a lot invested in this ride. shut him up. look at my furrows of worry. look at my big bank account and my family. this just has to be real." it's just a ride. but we always kill those good guys who try and tell us that, you ever notice that? and let the demons run amok. jesus murdered; martin luther king murdered; malcom x murdered; gandhi murdered; john lennon murdered; reagan ... wounded. but it doesn't matter because: it's just a ride. and we can change it anytime we want. it's only a choice. no effort, no work, no job, no savings and money. a choice, right now, between fear and love. the eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your doors, buy guns, close yourself off. the eyes of love, instead, see all of us as one. here's what we can do to change the world, right now, to a better ride. take all that money that we spend on weapons and defenses each year and instead spend it feeding and clothing and educating the poor of the world, which it would many times over, not one human being excluded, and we could explore space, together, both inner and outer, forever, in peace." -bill hicks
