This is Lewis Black’s Commencement Speech at University of California, San Diego.

I urge you all to take a listen.

Eat, Pray, Love, then hack ’em to pieces with a machette

A short while back, Walt posted about the finest film that you’d ever be forced to watch at gunpoint. Here now is another take on the same subject.

We’re all going to die!

Yep, that’s right, we’re all going to die. You know how I know that? Everything is falling apart…

Entropy, entropy, it all winds down!”

Yep, that’s right, there are recalls, product failures, oil spills, and well, that’s the good news. Think I’m kidding? Just listen to Lewis Black, from his segment on The Daily Show.

Glenn Beck Has Nazi Tourette’s

Hey, I didn’t say that, Lewis Black did:

The Daily Show With Jon Stewart Mon – Thurs 11p / 10c
Back in Black – Glenn Beck’s Nazi Tourette’s
Daily Show Full Episodes Political Humor Tea Party

Yeah, what he said.

Lewis Black is a reasonable man?

No, really, I mean that.

I’m a huge Lewis Black fan. I think that he is probably the funniest (and quite possibly) sanest man in America. Well he is currently doing a gig at the City Center in NYC, and well, making the rounds of various talk show (hey, they apparently have talk shows on the Web!), promoting his show, and talking smack about politics and religion.

What could be better?

What I really found interesting about both of these rants is that he posits that paying taxes is patriotic. Yeah, you read that right. If you are reading this before you watch the vids, his position is that the rich have money, and should pay taxes. Black feels that nothing could be more patriotic. Taxes pay the military, cops, education, clean water, and Hell, what could be more patriotic than all that?

Back in Black

Lewis Black, is a stand-up comic who, for several years has been doing a “news analysis” bit on The Daily Show entitled Back in Black, his most recent segment ran the other night and this is what he had to say.

I’ve always though that Black is channeling John Belushi from his Weekend Update days on Saturday Night Live.

Lewis Black is probably the funniest man in America.
