Thanks, Jason. I may take you up on that offer! We have, I think, two of Bill's CDs and the one DVD linked to in the blog entry.

One of my favorite bits...

I'm so sick of arming the world and then sending troops over to destroy the fucking arms, you know what I mean? We keep arming these little countries, then we go and blow the shit out of them. We're like the bullies of the world, you know. We're like Jack Palance in the movie Shane, throwing the pistol at the sheep herder's feet:

"Pick it up."

"I don't wanna pick it up mister, you'll shoot me."

"Pick up the gun."

"Mister, I don't want no trouble, huh. I just came down town here to get some hard rock candy for my kids, some gingham for my wife. I don't even know what gingham is, but she goes through about 10 rolls a week of that stuff. I ain't looking for no trouble, mister."

"Pick up the gun." (in a great Jack Palance whisper)

Boom! Boom!

"You all saw him. He had a gun."

Hicks was brilliant! This Basic Instinct story is great even transcribed like this, but you can't beat his angry/manic delivery. I have a few of his albums, if you ever want to borrow them! :)
