ALL THE PEOPLE letters, lyrics and routines of Bill Hicks
A collection of stand-up routinbes, correspondence and various words
of wisdom the the late great Dead Poet himself, Mr. B. Hicks, comdeian
Probably better known now than when he walked this
earth, Hick's hilarious outrage at the american nightmare is disturbingly
relevent. Though better listened to than read, this book does give
a deeper insight into the man's thinking, his vision of a "gentle
anarchy" every bit as compelling on the umpteenth exposure
"The world is just a ride, and some people have known it. We
think it's real cos that's how powerful our minds are, but it's
not, it's just a ride. And some people have known this and they've
come here and told us : "it's just a ride".
And we...killed those people, cos we love the fuckin'
ride. You ever notice that, we always kill the good guys on the
planet and leave these demon's running amok on the planet - you
ever noticed that?
Jesus - murdered , Martin Luter King - murdered
, Gandhi - -murdered , Malcolm X - murdered. Reagan - wounded"
