"Hi Reader. I hope you're feeling well, and I hope your family is prospering in the new global economy. At least to the extent they deserve. For the next few hundred pages I will be your content provider. Regarding the title of this book 'Napalm and Silly Putty': Sometime ago I was struck by the fact that, among many wonderous things, man has had the imagination to invent two distinctly different products. One, a flaming jellied gasoline used to create fire, death, and destruction; the other, a claylike mass good for throwing, bouncing, smashing or pressing against a comic strip so you could look at a backwards picture of Popeye. I think the title serves as a fairly good metaphor for Man's dual nature, while also providing an apt description of the kinds of thoughts that occupy me, both in this book and in my daily life; on one hand, I kind of like it when a lot of people die, and on the other I always wonder how many unused frequent flyer miles they had. The only difference between lilies and turds is whatever difference humans have agreed upon; and I don't always agree." -Introduction to Napalm and Silly Putty by George Carlin
George Carlin was a comedian who started out clean and family friendly but during the counter culture years became dirty yet thought provoking with many bits from how his Rice Krispies disrespected him and thus he threw a watermelon at them or how euphemistic language is concealing the true nature of things, and even the infamous "Seven words you can't say on Television" which resulted in a lawsuit with the FCC and changed the nature of how content was censored in the US. In his later years he became increasingly political but strangely his political humor which was very prophetic about the current state of the modern world.
Regardless if you think he is a prophet or a dirty minded sick old man, his work stands the test of time. He also narrated Thomas the Tank Engine and so I grew up knowing his voice.
Which brings us to today, for your game developing pleasure I have tried to render George Carlin using the generator bits that came with RPG Maker MZ. While I think the facial hair is a bit inaccurate I felt like I encapsulated his look in his later years from the 90's to his death in 2009.
This is free to use and so are my other stuff (The MV Touhou characters and the M*A*S*H graphics). Not sure what you can do with this but I figure someone could put this to use...Somehow.
