Carlin had a history of heart problems spanning three decades. These included heart attacks in , , and ; an arrhythmia requiring an ablation procedure in ; a significant episode of heart failure in late ; and two angioplasties. In accordance with his wishes, his body was cremated and his ashes were scattered in front of various nightclubs he had played in New York City and over Spofford Lake in New Hampshire , where he had fond memories of attending summer camp as an adolescent.
Sirius XM Satellite Radio has since devoted an entire channel to Carlin, entitled Carlin's Corner , featuring all of his comedy albums, live concerts, and works from his private archives. Four days before Carlin's death, the John F. Louis C. For a number of years, Carlin had been compiling and writing his autobiography, to be released in conjunction with a one-man Broadway show tentatively titled New York Boy.
After Carlin's death, Tony Hendra , his collaborator on both projects, edited the autobiography for release as Last Words. The book, chronicling most of Carlin's life and future plans, including the one-man show, was published in The abridged audio edition is narrated by Carlin's brother, Patrick Jr.
The George Carlin Letters: The Permanent Courtship of Sally Wade ,  by Carlin's widow, a collection of previously unpublished writings and artwork by Carlin interwoven with Wade's chronicle of their 10 years together, was published in March The subtitle is a phrase on a handwritten note that Wade found next to her computer upon returning home from the hospital after her husband's death. Moneyball screenwriter Stan Chervin announced in October that a biopic of Carlin was in process.
On February 8, , Judd Apatow stated on a podcast that he was working on a documentary about Carlin. Pacifica Foundation Supreme Court ruling in , broadcasters started to use the "Carlin Warning" to remind performers of the words they could not say during a live performance.
Many writings found on the internet have been falsely attributed to Carlin, including various joke lists, rants, and other pieces. The web site Snopes , an online resource that debunks urban legends and myths, has addressed these hoaxes. Many of them contain material that runs counter to Carlin's viewpoints; some are especially volatile toward racial groups, gay people, women, the homeless, and other targets. Carlin was aware of these bogus emails and debunked them on his own web site, saying, "Here's a rule of thumb, folks: Nothing you see on the Internet is mine unless it comes from one of my albums, books, HBO specials, or appeared on my web site", and "It bothers me that some people might believe that I would be capable of writing some of this stuff.

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Archived from the original on September 29, Most people have forgotten about the A-side of this record in favour of the B which features 'Emotions', a track that seems to have set the blueprint for the pan piping proto-hazy house vibe made popular by labels such as Mood Hut. Fellow B-sider ' Freedom ' is also a hot tip for some crunching bottom-heavy grooves.
The overflowing optimism and joy in this track is something that regularly turns cold, muddy festival crowds into raucous parties and displays of affection. And who's behind this mastery? A perfect production duo. Another track that starts out with a chord progression as lush as one of Michelangelo's brush strokes, Korda was a producer of whimsical house straight outta the vault of Alex Neri.
Like a good pizza, this track success for its simplicity. The pad chords don't change, the bassline stays the same, impeccably engineered breaks keep the track rolling and a stabbing piano links with a rhythmic vocal to make for a merry-go-round that you don't want to get off.
Released in , High Tide 's 'Time Unlimited' is one of this list's standout tracks, partly because it sounds like something that could have been released by HNNY or Lay-Far last week. An ingenious use of a harp sample is the key to this track, as well as being packed with Balearic vibes courtesy of an acoustic guitar solo at the end. A lot of these tracks definitely fall under the dream house persuasion of Italian dance music but if you need something that won't put you to sleep after an extended period of listening then make sure you take a hearty scoop of Jam Cafe 's 'The Last Cafe'.
While Italians mostly explored the progressive and trancier sides to house music, they almost missed a sound that was sweeping the UK, hardcore. But with a penchant for an over-the-top take on other styles of house music ie Italo disco maybe it's best they didn't get too into the already gimmicky vibes of hardcore.
One of the things I will question for the rest of my life is why Alex Neri didn't stick to one alias and rule the Italian scene with an iron fist.
Another absolute jam from an absolute don, the chunky drums coming straight out of the Kerri Chandler 's early years school for funky producers. A rollicking ride through deep house territory, Omniverse's 'Antares' was recently brought back to life thanks to a repress by Italian house reissuing maestros Flash Forward. Hole in the Ground.
