i remember seeing this special late one night when i was still in middle school. we had HBO back then and i just happened to stumble upon his show. coming from a religious family, questioning God was, of course, taboo. the rest of my family was already sleeping at the time and everything that was coming out of George's mouth was just so unbelievably obscene and taboo that i remember turning the volume down to make sure my mom or dad wouldn't be able to hear it. everything he touched upon was just mind blowing and he did so eloquently. i've never seen or heard comedy done like that. my comedy world which consisted mostly of Fresh Prince was shattered. i wouldn't say that he alone was responsible for my stance on religion nowadays but he definitely helped.

you were always one of my faves. visit me sometime and tell me where ya ended up because uhh... i'll probably end up in the same place.
