A very good tribute
from the Guardian regarding the life and legacy of philosopher-comedian Bill Hicks.
It is compelling and significant that the final words on Hicks's last record, Rant In E-Minor, are a prayer: "Lift me up out of this illusion, Lord. Heal my perception, so that I may know only reality."

Tonight, I found a bevy of Bill Hicks mp3s. God, he was hilarious. He was more a truth-teller than a comedian. Luckily, there's still people out there that dig him too, including the great site at BillHicks.com
. Among the many cool things at that site is a huge archive of audio clips
of his standup and interviews.
