Knapp is the man. 8) With that said- He will need to work on some things. Mostly, he seems to really have a strong intrest in UFOs, and like me will have to find an intrest in other topics besides UFOs and ghosts. If I was the host of C2C it would be all ghosts/ UFOs. I think Knapp would like that too, but unfortunately some people seem to need an alex jones fix

George talked a lot about how hard it is to do the C2C host job and how much he admires those folks who do it day in and day out, like George Noory and formerly Art Bell.  I believe this is a message to those of us who have been saying how much we'd like him to take the helm as the main host.

Why have a main host?  Maybe that idea could be thrown down and looked at.  Why not have several and get away from a personality cult like what happened with Art?

Just sayin'

Yes. I doubt he would even be interested in UFO's if Bob Lazar hadn't dragged him out in the desert that night. Although he was pursuing a story at the time and was getting lots of info and leads from different channels and people about Area 51. A good story considering he was in Vegas. But I don't know that he was prepared for the whole UFO thing. Now that a "UFO" is in his thesaurus of life experiences though, he can relate.

Yeah I second this. Art never had him on, Jones only started coming on the show once George took over. Before that time no one in the audience needed "an Alex Jones fix".

Didn't hear it - so I'll take your word it was dull.  But I gotta give Knapp props for taking the time to be supportive of a kid with dreams.

I thought the same thing, Ana.  :(

Have you read "Hunt for the Skinwalker," co-authored by Knapp? I recommend it.  Knapp has an extraordinary amount of personal experience with the paranormal.   :)

Speaking of Knapp having experiences with the paranormal.... did you catch that bit where he was talking to a UFO guy about the reptilians having skin "like the armpit of an iguana"? 


Who gets close enough to a reptilian to make such a fine distinction? 


"Nah, it wasn't that coarse scaley stuff they have on their sides, of course not, I mean the very fine scales, you know, like under the armpit like you get a peek of when they're on the pole at the bar."

once i had a layover at the Denver Airport.  i had a lot of time on my hands.  so naturally i snuck into the underground ufo base underneath the airport.  and drank some beers with the reptilians.  good "guys".  but i got too drunk and missed my plane.  d'oh

Beautiful airport, Denver.  I like what those space iguanas have done with the place.

One of the things that sweetens the listening experience for me, when Knapp's at the wheel: geography.  He's near to the original "kingdom of Nye."  The high desert.  The great American southwest. 

I should probably post this somewhere else as it's a bit disjunctive here, but: anyone else slightly weirded out by Bell's amorous migration to "the land of 7,000 islands"?  It's the one little wrinkle in his bio that I can't quite reconcile with the man.  Pursuit of happiness, I guess.

I like George Knapp as much as the next guy.  His Jacques Vallee interview a few months back is in the top 10 coast shows ever.
 
But this recent open lines show stunk.
 
Not sure who blew it on the guest, the producers or the host, but he was lousy, and full of it - no credible evidence, no science, etc., etc.  George called him on it a bit, but have well been a show about leprichuans, or a guy who thinks he's a horse.
 
Whether you like him or not, Ian is the best open lines host after Art.

Tonight's show...

Good host, sure to be ruined by an lame guest and topic:

Guest(s):
Maurice Cotterell

Sunday April 24, 2011

Author Maurice Cotterell joins George Knapp to explain how the Universe began and reveal the first ever pictures of God and Jesus, decoded from the treasures of ancient sun-worshiping civilizations.

Oh, George Knapp has a screwed up foot now?

Great - he can stay home and host C2C full time!

Whuh?  Did he mention it on last night's show? Weird coincidence, hope it isn't as bad as Ian's injury.

Yeah, it seems he messed up his foot (or ankle?) in Washington D.C. walking around doing interviews.  He had surgery and now he's been laid up, puttering around his house on a scooter for the last two weeks.

Phooey.   The first hour last night with Knapp talking about the news and taking some open lines (with really decent callers for once!), felt like some real genuine old-time C2C.  Unfortunately, I was unable to listen to the rest.

It's not really incomprehensible when you realize he's always been attracted to Filipinas (Ramona was half, right?).  He was a 3x loser at marriage before he married Ramona so from his pov, it was a fluke.  He is not an easy guy to be married to and he's left a string of abandoned children and disappointed women behind him.  She dies.  Do you think he's happy to be single?  In Pahrump, Nevada? The thought of dating again probably brought him to his knees on the porch as much as the empty house!


With a child bride in the pines, he gets someone without baggage, who can help him start over.  You do not WANT to stay in the same house, or even the same state, as you were when your loved one dies.  You have to get away from the reminders because you are just shattered inside.  Show?  What show?  You're thinking a good day is one where you didn't kill yourself.  After my son died, a good day was one where I didn't cry in public--FOR WEEKS.


I totally understand him changing up the scenery as much as possible.  It takes a lot of distraction to move past that level of pain.  Thank god for Asia.  She is the neosporin on Art's burned heart.  The wife seems very nice, but she's still a bundle of expectations.  A baby is a lot of work (a good thing) and heart-melting love for this perfect innocent and joyful creature, now that's healing.


He saved himself and he is obviously enjoying the relative anonymity and being enveloped by a big, loving, Philippine family-- what's he got in the U.S.?  Solitary confinement with reminders of Ramona.

Anagrammy - that was probably the most humane and realistic explanation I've read of why Art ran away to the Philippines to marry that girl.  Beyond all the jokes, judgement, and complaints... it all probably comes down to that.

I hope he's happy... and Airyn, too.

I believe Knapp said he was playing basketball, fell and tore some tendons in his foot. Thinking a bone was broken and not wanting a cast to keep him from going to Washington DC the next day, he ignored his pain and went.  In DC, trudging through snow for several days did further damage, which required surgery. Now he's homebound and riding around on a skateboard-like scooter which suspends one leg and has made him the subject of many hoots.  :P  I wonder if his being demobilized partly accounts for him being available as a host for 3 days in one week.
 
If George Noory hadn't alerted us that there are no coincidences, I would have thought it remarkable that both Knapp and Punnett damaged themselves in virtually the same way within a few months of each other. Could Noory be sticking pins in the feet of little dolls?  :o

True, true, Usagi.
That kind of pain is totally indescribable and the search for a soothing salve is sometimes, well, just a little odd to others. 

And, Anagrammy, once again your insight is phenomenal.  My heart goes out to you on the loss of your son, the wound that never totally heals.

Totally dug Sunday nights show with George Knapp. Cotterell is intriguing, and Knapp was able to keep up. Good topic + good host + good callers = kick ass.

God is cool. But, yes, we all aren't interested in everything. I can listen to Cotterell, and Knapp didn't do a dive show like he did on Friday night.
