Bill Hicks’s birthday.



I just wanted to remind anybody who might be reading this that the 16th of December is the birthday of stand-up legend and social critic, the sorely-missed Bill Hicks. If you are unfamiliar with the works or life of Bill Hicks, I suggest you check out some of his CDs, DVDs, or some of the books written about him since his untimely demise. If you’re already a fan, break out some of that stuff, maybe even have some friends over to share the warm fuzzy glow that Bill’s special brand of comedy engenders. Abortion jokes really do have the power to bring us all together. By the way, the name of this blog was inspired by several of Bill Hicks’s routines.

“Is that the Big One I hear in the background? Bye, you lizard scum, bye!”

Shameless, just shameless.

If anybody is interested in checking out my album, Traffic Holiday A-Go-Go, I have posted a torrent of it at the Pirate Bay.   Yes, that’s right, I’m using The Pirate Bay, dread enemies of artists everywhere.  The simple fact is, the major labels have made it so fucking hard for people to get music the way they actually want it (i.e. on their computron), that piracy has become the accepted norm.  If BitTorrent will give more people access to my music, great!  Stuff the labels!  This is 2007, who’s needs those leaches?  Not that they would lower themselves to ever release an album this fucking weird.  (And yes, the spam subject headers that I sing are completely real, albeit out-dated.  They’re even in order.)  If you have a suggestion of another BitTorrent site/tracker where I should post this, just leave a comment.  Traffic Holiday A-Go-Go is released under the Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike 2.0 license.  If you do enjoy it, please consider purchasing it on CD Baby, iTunes, eMusic, or search for it at your online retailer.  I’m also on the Myspace thing.  I have another unreleased work-in-progress, Bought Myself a Nice Day, posted there.  Friend me!  I’m starved for attention!
