...a young man realised that all matter is merely energy...
on 28 November 2002
Like a true fan I rushed out to the shops and bought this cd as soon as i learnt of it's existence. Unfortunately, as I already own rant in e-minor, it seems rather unimpressive. Now please dont get me wrong, i am indepted to Bill Hicks for making me understand that there are people who see the world that others in their burger munching, coke swilling, action film digesting empty headed idiocy do not seem to appreciate.
I remember watching Bill for the first time in the early 90's at the age of 16 and feeling reassured that all the contradictions I felt but didnt understand were brought into existence.
And for those who are new to Bill, listen to what Mr. Hicks says and listen to it as truths, not just humour and you'll find something far deeper than someone like the corporate clone Jerry Seinfeld would be able to manage with his: "what's up with...dah dum de dum de dum....have you ever noticed that...de dah de dah de dah...
And as an extra note, id like to add that i bought Philosphy (Bill Hicks compilation) which is much better, but again, if you have Rant in E-minor, it may seem a little repetitive... then sit back in your capitalist branded designer potato sacks and laugh your mind numbed tv heads to the truth as told by the messiah of stand up.
Rest in peace Bill Hicks, we miss you.
