Bill Hicks 1961-1994
An amazing comic, social satirist and heretic.
For example: "The War on Drugs" (right click to d/l)
(You can hear Bill on Tool's album Aenima on the '3rd Eye' track. "I think Drugs have done some good things for us...")
Add you favorite Hicks quote below:
"..Isn't the news supposed to be objective??? I mean..it is
- THE NEWS,
so why is every story on drugs negative? I've had some killer times on drugs. What about some positive drug stories for once? Wouldn't it be cool to turn on the news and the announcer say:
- Today a young man on acid realized that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration, that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively, there is no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we are the imagination of ourselves. Here's Tom with the weather."
"Why is marijuana against the law?
It grows naturally upon our planet.
Doesn't the idea of making nature against the law seem to you a bit... unnatural?
You know what I mean?
- It's nature.
- How do you make nature against the fucking law?!?"
"They lie about marijuana. Tell you pot-smoking makes you unmotivated.
When you're high, you can do everything you normally do, just as well.
You just realize that it's not worth the fucking effort. There is a difference."
"Peoples belief are funny sometimes, don't you think?
Christians wear Crosses around their necks...
Do Ya think when Jesus comes back, that he wants to see a fucking cross ever again?!?"
"My god I love everything! The heavens part, God reigned down gifts of forgiveness onto my being. Healing me on every level. Both psychically, mentally and emotionally. And I realised that our true natural spirit is not the body. That we are eternal beings, and God's love is unconditional. That there is nothing we ever do to change that. It is only our illusion that we are separate from God. Or that we are alone! In fact the reality is that we are one with God and he loves us." "Now if that isn't a danger to this country, I don't know what is. How are we going to keep building nuclear weapons? What's gonna happen to the arms industry, when we realise we are all one!? That's gonna fuck-up the economy. The economy that's fake anyway! Which would be a real bummer.. Yeah!"
"See why the governments are cracking-down on the idea of experiencing unconditional love!?"
I'll tell you this, it is the moment i'm addicted to. That moment is a suspension of time and space when we realize our true selves as timeless. Entertainment is another definition of time & space. If it's scary or funny, if you go "AHHHHHHHHHH!"; You're entertained! Why? Because you've realized your true self which is not in a body, not physcial, not dying or born to die....
- Good God! I'm a pretentious fuck.
