9780786883219: Brain Droppings

With hundreds of sold-out concert dates each year, over 20 albums, two Grammys, two Cable ACE awards, and more HBO specials that anyone else, George Carlin is more popular than ever. Now Carlin's New York Times bestselling book comes to paperback. Filled with thoughts, musings, questions, lists, beliefs, curiosities, monologues, assertions, assumptions, and other delicious verbal ordeals, Brain Droppings is drop-dead funny.

Review:

George Carlin's been working the crowd since "the counterculture" became "the over-the-counter culture" around 1967 or so; his new book, Brain Droppings, surfs on three decades of touring-in-support. It's the purest version of book-as-candy that one could imagine, serving up humor in convenient, bite-sized packages. Snack on chewy one-liners like "A meltdown sounds like fun. Like some kind of cheese sandwich." Or: "If you can't beat them, arrange to have them beaten." Brain Droppings also contains highlights from Carlin's concert repertoire, and that more than makes up for the occasional spray of pointless nihilism. Tell us, George, what exactly were you going for with "Kill your pet" and "Satan is cool"? Quick--hide the paper before Daddy sees it! Still, if you're a fan of this sarcastic semanticist who's given Bad Attitude not necessarily a good name, but at least a comfy bank account, by all means rush out and snag Brain Droppings. Carlin's book melts in your mind, not in your hand.

From the Back Cover:

Sometimes a little brain damage can help.

Legendary comic George Carlin shares cutting-edge opinions and observational humor in a calendar based on his New York Times bestselling book, Brain Droppings. Brain Droppings: The 1999 Calendar is filled with thoughts, musings, questions, lists, beliefs, curiosities, assertions, assumptions, and other verbal ordeals, plus many of Carlin's favorite oxymorons ("original copy," "uninvited guests"), redundancies ("added bonus," "closed fist"), and euphemisms (peephole = observation port; illegal immigrant = guest worker). Start each day with a big dose of George Carlin, and you'll be laughing every day of the year.

Descrizione libro Hyperion, United States, 1998. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The thinking person s comic who uses words as weapons, George Carlin shares all-new, cutting-edge opinion and observational humor in Brain Droppings. Filled with thoughts, musings, questions, lists, beliefs, curiosities, monologues, assertions, assumptions, and other verbal ordeals, Brain Droppings is infectiously funny. Carlin unleashes his opinions on People Who Should Be Phased Out (guys with creases in their jeans, people who know a lot of prayers by heart) and Seven Things I m Tired Of (geeks with Walkmans, clothing with writing on it, having to read cloud descriptions in a book). He even offers the never-before-revealed Guide to Dining Out (order unusual things: a chopped corn sandwich with diced peas and rye potato chips). From nonsense such as Eventually there will come a time when everyone is in a band to the ultimately profound It is impossible to dry one hand, you ll get a look inside Carlin s mind, and you won t be disappointed. Carlin demolishes everyday values and yet leaves you laughing out loud. You ll learn what he thinks of sports fans, how he would improve the TV networks, his suggestions for Legal Murder Once a Month, and his plan for World Peace Through Constant Dancing. Also included are two classic Carlin monologues -- A Place for My Stuff and Baseball and Football. Codice libro della libreria ABZ9780786883219
