Maybe Redacted will get together with Lasha and Nancy to do a show now that Art has passed.  I would listen to that...

I nominate you as moderator in case things threatened to get unseemly.

I'm sure he has a card laying around somewhere that he can re-use and send as a condolence card.

I'm sure he can grab a few on his next visit to the hospital. Just cross out the names.

Only the good die young

I refer you to the Falkie thread for confirmation of that.

Long before she got involved with MITD she made a mention of where she lived while cohosting a Gabcast.

If her name is not Heather Wade, then she really shit on the woman in that town she named in California who really did live there.

She ought to have watched Day of the Jackal and picked a name from a gravestone of someone who died very young.

I find the prodigal daughter theory inexplicably attractive but there is nothing that would make me think it to be so. I believe it to be BellGab chatter that bubbled up like speculative swampgas during the height of Heather Wade frustration and restless leg syndrome. Nonetheless, obfuscation was baked into this cake and it practically cries out for some decorative conspiratorial candles. As such, I'm giving an extra point for style.

Fair enough, but it seems like the less weird explanation out of the possible alternatives. I still doubt she uses her real name though.

And this leads you to conclude?

That she's his daughter and aldous got tired of putting up with her pretending. I think that's why they don't speak much now, because she's addicted to playing this role. That's also why she seems so fake. He's welcome to tell me I'm wrong but I don't expect him to confirm it if I am right.

It sure did come off a tad cryptic, however, when he said read between the lines, I take it he intended for us to read between the lines

Aldous can correct me if I'm wrong, but he sounds like an honest guy who found himself in a false position and got tired of HW and co's BS. If her name is Heather Wade then I am Mae West. I think he wanted her to own up, she told him to go pound sand, and they haven't talked much since. He did it without betraying any secrets but dropped enough hints.

Sweet Kathy's gynaecologist might be able to answer that question.

I enjoyed the show, I hope there are many more of them. It was good to hear a bit of grounded discussion about Art and not just hagiography. I thought Element 115 sounded a bit like renegade ginger Curtis. I think anyone reasonably adept at reading between the lines figured out a lot from aldous's call, if they didn't know already.

I said it in the chat and I'll say it again here.

It seems to me that the gabcast is capturing the original C2C vibe more than any attempt at a successor to Art Bell has ever done and it's doing it completely unintentionally.  It's like it's organically morphing into the true spiritual successor.

The original C2C was more about (in my experience anyway) this mass of people feeling and thinking about things together and exploring those things.  Even though Art made everyone feel like he was there in the room with them being their pal or letting them in on all kinds of personal secrets he still managed to keep everyone glued together
as a gang in a way that nobody else can pull off.

Art might simply have been a lightning rod for something that needed to happen for whatever reason, and lightning may be attracted to the gabcast now which in a way is better because it's not entirely any one particular person.

Maybe a positive thing coming from the gut wrenching grief of Art's passing is the realization that we could all come together and explore the world, seen and unseen, in a constructive way even without one single guy leading the whole thing forward but as a satisfying and stronger group effort.

Seems like a lot of people have been slumped over and disillusioned after Art bailed on MITD as if we can't have that special thing without him but hey, maybe we can?

Agreed, but people need to be prepared to have a go themselves. It seems that a lot of people have convinced themselves that they can't co-host so you end up with the same people. It's much more fun when we hear different voices and if people don't participate then it will just wither away again. I'm sure we all have people we want to hear. For instance, albrecht, I'd love to hear that lunatic co-host ('I know an Indian, dot not feather' FFS).

I canít remember the date, but MV asks me about having a story to tell, and I bumblemumble something about changing my mind and as he chided me, Sredni came to my rescue and told a story instead. I probably still owe him for letting me off the hook.

That would have been late October 2016. I actually have two stories but I told the less personal one.

Maybe she could get Leo to guest host?

She'll have all the time she needs when the wife sells up and pulls the plug on  this vanity project.

Are you referring to yourself as talentless - and saying you hate other radio shows that are not your own?

I listen to your show from time to time. I like you. Not that you need a pat on the back, I'm not tryna patronize you at all.

If he doesn't describe himself as talentless there are lots of people only too happy to remind him.

New guests were no prizes either.  Peter Robbins was off his nut, and the gal who claimed Bigfoot wore clothing taken from her clothes line and ate lemon pie was really bad.  I also remember the young guy who claimed to have come upon a crashed UFO, I think in either Utah or Nevada.  Not only was Bell frustated the kid could he not keep his story straight, but he was pissed the guest was using a cell phone.

Yeah, just some of Producer Heather's greatest hits. I don't know where she found that kid, and she should have made it clear to Robbins that he wasn't there to bore the audience. Robbins can be good but he needs proper handling. He hitch-hiked across Afghanistan as a young man, which isn't something everybody does, and he worked with Budd Hopkins. I'm sure Heather was unaware of all this.

That did put the Kiss of Death on it.  Oh well.

Don't give up, this is America after all, you can realise your dreams. All it takes  is hard work, patience and bribery (or blackmail).

Top right.

FYI, if you nominate a post for top-right that immediately disqualifies it from consideration. Don't blame me, blame the Soviet-style dictatorship we are living under, slaves to his bureaucratic caprices.

Both Dark Matter and MITD.  For MITD, in particular, it appeared he was looking for excuses to bail before the show even started.  I think he enjoyed the initial thrill of kicking off both shows but once he got into them, it became more drudgery than reward.  Flying drones and watching cats became preferable.

I think a lot of people, if they are honest, enjoyed the hype more than the shows themselves. Art wasn't interested in doing anything different by then, and his old reliable guests had gotten very stale. And people like Jonathan Reed just got shredded after five minutes research on the internet.

It's nice to see him wearing a shirt.

No wonder he never wears a shirt. His shoulders are so narrow they must keep slipping off.

While COPD may have killed him, I have my doubts it contributed significantly to Bell leaving MITD (or DM, or C2C).  I see many parallels between Bell and my late brother.  My brother suffered from both depression and anxiety disorder.  He talked a good fight, but was forever finding excuses to not follow through with or just abandon whatever plans or efforts he committed to.  Nothing was ever his fault, someone or something was always to blame.  The older he got, the more he saw himself as a victim. Ironically he died just six weeks before Bell, also from pulmonary issues.  He was a very bright guy, a CPA and one time corporate comptroller, but like Bell, he pointed fingers rather than deal with problems, either real or imagined.

It seemed that almost as soon as he got on the air he was looking for a way out. Once he made enough FU money his limited qualities of application eroded even more. His main intention was obviously to stick it to Noory, but once he had done a few weeks the feeling of revenge didn't last long.

I agree, it would have been better to do it that way.  Obviously none of us here know the truth on this and probably never will.  Maybe he thought the stalker story would allow him to quietly quit while drumming up some dramatic marketing for MITD?  A lot of folks are still angry that he handed over the show to an inexperienced loser with the talent of a wet rag, if he had been honest about his health then maybe people wouldn't have been so angry about it.

He made all sorts of odd decisions, the stalker was one of many. Others include: Leo Ashcraft, Amy Martin, getting people to prank call RCH, contemplating HW as co-host. There are probably others.

" His loss cuts deep as I recall the countless moments of advice, laughter, excitement, guidance, and priceless wisdom. Being friends with Art Bell meant there was never a dull moment, and it is impossible to convey how much I miss him now.Ē

Part of Redacted's ode to Art on MITD page.
 I would  be a little  insulted if someone described  me as "competent" at my job.

It's little details like that that make me think she really is his daughter. Somebody infatuated would be more effusive, but you usually don't go overboard in praising a relative. And he usually didn't, preferring to emphasise that she was improving.

WWI Dead:

Merry Ole England: 1,000,000 (4% of population)

US: 120,000 (0.1% of population)

YOU WON!

In the two greatest conflagrations in human history, we let you idiotic Europeans beat each other to a pulp until we decided to join...minimizing our losses...ha...I love your revisionist history... ;D

Told that to an ex girlfriend from Moscow...she was pissed at me for over a week...then she told me  that the reason she was so mad is that I was right...oh well...sorry Ole chum!

You're just backing up what I said. You only came in at the end because you knew the real work had to be done by competent professionals not a bunch of gum-chewing show ponies. The only military innovation you idiots ever came up with was the concept of friendly fire, where you morons were so hopped up on mushrooms you ended up bombing your own side. But if there's a village of peace-loving fruitarians in the South Pacific somewhere, you're only too happy to raze it to the ground with all your weaponry which you're too dumb to know how to work properly.

You really can't logically overcome Narcissistic Personality Disorder....

I remember looking on the WHO website about personality disorders, and if you scored more than three out of seven categories you qualified. Senda had five easily, so he was more than qualified when it came to narcissism.

Why did he leave Rush? Rush's current webmaster has been with him forever...so he couldn't have been that bad to work for.

Knowing what we know about KR, he may not have made the decision to leave voluntarily. He isn't exactly a people person.

Wait a minute.  Isn't Lasha psychic or something?  Why didn't she see that coming?

Congrats on not being dead. Why don't you do the GC tomorrow? A deranged grunt is just what's needed. And if you feel the urge to blow your own head off at any time, it would be a hell of a show.

Take no notice, Chine. This mongoloid makes it a point of principle to be a dick to everyone on the board. And he doesn't have any friends, as you can tell.

The MiTD people really ought to have someone go on the GC. At the very worst it's free publicity at a time when more people than usual are likely to listen.

Jesus. OK, but sell the tape and we can use the money for an official BellGab wake. I expect you'd need a stiff drink after that anyway.

Someone should ask Rosegirl to cohost the Gabcast. I donít think she has ever cohosted with MV.

I'd even stay up to hear that one.
