That's probably because you're the mold

What is it about him that you don't accept or appreciate?
I'm just curious if it's coincidentally what I admire about him.

I'm not sure if i follow correctly.

But I'd say Stephen Fry. He's always been so open and vocal about mental illness but broke past the sigma into acceptance vs ending up mocked
ie Britney Spears and such.

I'm just rather apathetic to all entertainers. Nothing specific to Carlin personally..

Walt Disney



Grew up very poor, followed his ambitions ruthlessly and ended up creating one of the most successful companies of all time.

Told that cartoons were fluff, a feature-length cartoon would never make it, his theme park ideas would never make it, etc.

They were all wrong.

Johnny Cash.
Early Rock singers were either pretty boys or singing about happy things.
He brought a bad boy darkness to it.

Henrik Ibsen: Norwegian playwriter of late 19th early 20th century.
While other writers like Chekov and Strindberg also birthed naturalism to the stage, Ibsen’s play were also avant garde in their themes, being ecologist, feminist, egalitarism.
Several of his plays were censored in England at the time.
Plus, sideburns from hell.

Even a rabid country music hater like myself still listens to Fulsom Prison once in a while.

I don't really like his act.
"You know what I hate? *Ridiculous stereotype that doesn't actually exist* these are the worst people!"
*I hate God and no one's ever done that bit before*
"Cocksucker motherf*cker bitch" because I'm 12 and listing context-less bad words is funny
...he's not my thing.

The Rock also does some advocacy for depression, idk how much/serious it is but it's kinda cool.

My daughter was assigned to read and write a report on a biography book. I recommended that book to her. So far, I am reading it more than she is.
