To all forum viewers,
I have two different issues to address.
1st: After joining, I have spent time looking over this website. You all seem to have one thing in common. . .You do not like the present state of C2C. Mostly, you all seem to hate the hosts and how they conduct the shows business. I read this all the time, "Art Bell is the greatest ever. . . George sucks... Ian sucks..." Almost everyone on this site has something bad to say about C2C. (Not everyone. Most everyone.)
But despite that, it seems everyone keeps listening to the program. Your days seem to be filled with how much you dislike the radio show and everything about it. You all pat yourselves on the back regarding how witty and insulting you can be. Sorry, that side of the website I can live without. I do not think it adds anything to my life. I do like open opinions and mindedness. (is that even a word, mindedness? Sounds like something George would have said. You all seem to think he says the darnest things.)
I will agree that Art Bell was good in his day. But he has chosen to leave C2C and live the good life outside of the USA. Why? I have listened to many of his past programs and I do think he was a better host than George. But come on people. . .lets move on. Bell left the show years ago. Art also had his own problems and quirks. (Which were quite strange in themselves) Far different from George's quirks. All I am trying to say is all people are different. George will never be Art. Art will never be Ian. . .That's it. Lets get over it.
2nd: My last rant (it is tied to the first rant, in an abscure way). . . I think many of you know this, but you need to hear it again.
C2C is only a "product". A product of money making, money loving con artist that will sell you anything. They have George as the host because he will do anything they ask. George is a "go along boy".
Art was not.
Most, (if not all) of these guests that are on the show are only selling their own crap and issues. Crap and issues that they can then sell to the people that listen to the program. Their crap & issues, (books & ideas) are all "widget's". (widget: A self created item of minimal use.)
In marketing, the best way to sell something is to create, (make up) a demand for the product you want to sell. Even if that demand was never there before. All you have to do is make something up so that people will think they need it. That type of capitalism has been going on far to long. I love free enterprize. I love new ideas. I love the good ol'USA. But, We the people are beginning to find it hard to believe anything we are told any more. We are mislead into thinking the "crap & issues" we are told, should be important to us. Only to find out later it was only important because someone has a new book to sell.
One of the only reasons I listen to C2C, is because I find it fascinating that people will "buy" into just about anything they are told. The entire program, from its commercials to many of it's guests, are nothing but Money loving, Money grubbing twisters of the truth. They will say and do anything to make money. These lovers of money have turned the people of this country into mindless cattle. I for one do not like what they have done. You can still make money in this country by not lying to everyone.
I look forward to all of your responses. I can't wait to read what everyone has to say. Defend yourselves people. I just slapped you into reality.
