Last words by George Carlin – Brief Remarks

Posted by Raul Barral Tamayo en Jueves, 15 de enero, 2015


As one of America’s preeminent comedic voices, George Carlin saw it all throughout his extraordinary fifty-year career and made fun of most of it. Last Words is the story of the man behind some of the most seminal comedy of the last half century, blending his signature acerbic humor with never-before-told stories from his own life.

Carlin’s early conflicts, his long struggle with substance abuse, his turbulent relationships with his family, and his triumphs over catastrophic setbacks all fueled the unique comedic worldview he brought to the stage. From the heights of stardom to the low points few knew about, Last Words is told with the same razor-sharp honesty that made Carlin one of the best-loved comedians in American history.

George Denis Patrick Carlin appeared no more than 130 Tonight shows, starred in an unprecedented fourteen HBO Specials, hosted the first Saturday Night Live, and penned three New York Times bestselling books. A few days before his death, Carlin was named the eleventh recipient of The Kennedy Center Mark Twain Prize for American Humor.

Tony Hendra was recently describe by The Independent of London as “one of the most brilliant comic talents of the post-war period”. He began his comic career with Graham Chapman of Monty Python, appeared nine times on The Ed Sullivan Show, was an original editor of National Lampoon, and starred in This is Spinal Tap.

Lucid Dreaming by Robert Waggoner – Brief Remarks

Posted by Raul Barral Tamayo en Jueves, 28 de agosto, 2014


Lucid Dreaming: Gateway to the Inner Self is the account of a talented lucid dreamer who consciously sought out the principles of the dreaming realm, while lucidly aware.

While lucid (consciously aware) in the dream state and able to interact with dream figures, objects, and settings, lucid dreamer Robert Waggoner experienced something transformative and unexpected. Using a counter-intuitive technique to ignore the dream figures and objects, and address questions and requests to the unknown awareness behind the dream, he began to get deeply creative responses.

At first this seemed shocking, since psychology normally alludes to such theoretical inner aspects as the Inner Self, Subliminal Self, the Center, the Hidden Observer in vague and theoretical ways. Waggoner came to realize, however, that lucid dreaming offered a means to interact with that inner observer directly.

After almost a thousand lucid dreams, he concluded that while aware in the dream state, we have both a psychological tool and a platform from which to begin to understand dreaming and the larger picture of man’s psyche as well. In the book, Waggoner proposes five stages of lucid dreaming and guides readers through them, offering advice for those who have never experienced the lucid dream state and suggestions for how experienced lucid dreamers can advance to new levels of exploration.

Lucid Dreaming offers exciting insights and vivid illustrations that will intrigue not only avid dreamworkers but anyone who is interested in consciousness, identity, and the nature of reality.

Robert Waggoner is President-elect of the International Association for the Study of Dreams (IASD) and a graduate of Drake University with a degree in psychology. Over the past thirty years, he has logged more than a thousand lucid dreams. He is an international speaker and coeditor of the quartely publication, The Lucid Dream Exchange.
