Im finally done with C2C
« on: March 09, 2016, 04:10:31 PM »
What can I say that hasn't been said before?  I understand that following a legend like Art would be a tough act to live up to, but this fool has single handedly destroyed everything unique and interesting about this great show. I did not like GN when he first started, but I said to myself, give it a little time for me to get used to him, and for him to get used to the show. The first 6 months where okay, and I actually found myself liking him, in hindsight I think it was just the fact that he kept the show on the same track for the beginning several months. Fast forward to today, C2C is, and I am being generous here, a pale shadow of its former self. GN is a terrible, boring, frustrating to listen to, unimaginative, uninspiring dead corpse of a host. The questions he asks sound like a 8 year old's level of intelligence and inquiry skills.  Art would always become part of the interview, he would really push the interviewers knowledge and intelligence on the given topic, with great humour, and amazing tongue in cheek jabs, and a non stop continuous line of questioning that kept us all riveted to the show, and dying for the next night to start.

 Now C2C is nothing more than GN's personal shill tool, to push his crappy beyond belief show,  that sad pathetic dating service, and his continuing promise, for years now, that the price of gold is going to skyrocket. I am so damn tired of stupid psychics, numerology ladies, the guy who sells his health packs for EVERY ailment, and new age spiritual garbage. Listening to him utter his famous phrase at every topic "I don't know, I feel something bad is going to happen, don't you" Get BENT GN, you sad pathetic unintelligent uneducated uninspiring amateur fearmongerer. It is absolutely shocking how 1 man has single handedly destroyed one of, if not, the greatest radio show of all time.

Drop dead GN, you are a sham, you will forever go down in radio history as "The Man Who Killed Coast 2 Coast"

I hope this forum can go back to its roots, GN bashing.

Welcome friend. Most of us gave up on C2C long ago. With the alternatives out there, I find VERY little reason to listen. Heather is no Art, but beats GN by miles.

I only bash shows that I listen to. I'm not listening to C2C very much anymore. It seems like every time I try to turn C2C on, it is commercials.

George just has a habit when he actually gets a good guest on he'll throw to some pre-scripted question that kinda derails and lets the air out of the discussion.

It looks like Noory wants C2C to become a all-callers talk show. Last night he gave ten minutes to some mope who called to complain about smoke from his neighbor's fireplace. What in the world made Noory or his screener think I wanted to listen to that?

I just think George sucks in some ways.  Like, he denies it but almost all the guests are white men, and secondly, white women.  He treats the female guests too much as females, and not enough as persons.  And on Beyond Belief, the animal whisperer's breasts are hanging out of her too tight, too low, too satin flouncy top the whole time.  My goodness, if attire is not office appropriate, it shouldn't be on.  Not to mention her slide show in heels and boy shorts.  Ok, well, she does a good job and it was a long time ago, but still.  This is not porn, nevermind that the Victorias Secret thong models he mentioned actually are posing "nude" recently.  And what does ANY of this have to do with the paranormal? 

And the way they billed the matchmaker was totally not how she really comes across at all.  They just portrayed it in a way to sound salacious to men.  But actually she was sensitive, and her website appealed to both genders.

Do tell, what did he recently say about wanting a cave woman to come up behind him?  Per Google, cave woman no longer means Betty Rubble, that's for sure.  Gees.  Back to James Bond all over again.  Does it ever end?  Oh yeah, I always go to war wearing a bra and leg warmers, and tons of make-up and leg paint... It is because of men such as the Bond producers that women were not welcomed into combat by screwed up, perverted men-in-charge.  I don't like much about China, but at least one doesn't think of Bond "girls" when viewing their fighters.

And after all that hype about women as objects for male sexuality, then a real female caller comes on, expresses concern about non-consentual alien rapes she has experienced, and he tells her she is mental!  This, a man who has rhetorically called out for paranormal sexy demons, saying, "Send some!"

I guess the sexy demons he called on didn't turn to be what he expected them to be, but he certainly looked plagued for a while after saying, "Send some!"

I guess he was single when he invited sexy demons, unless he had a gf who was as understanding as Anne Strieber.  Even though George has hosted Whitley Streiber, he totally shut down that female alien probe victim.  This, a man who was on the Playboy channel!  He sexes women up, even the married female host from Playboy channel, but when a female Coast caller has a real sexual concern that actually IS paranormal, he calls her deranged and hangs up.

And for him to say in chat that a woman's incredibly gorgeous looks are one thing, but, he needs them to have character too.  Maybe I got it wrong, but it sounded like he demands both!  I don't know, he sort of lost me at "incredibly gorgeous women he sees in L.A. all the time".  Gee, that kind of puts the pressure on L.A. women, cant even let hair down for a minute. 

And he treats female callers differently than male callers with, "Way-ell, Helloeeeee".  And he sucks when he asks 22-year old guests his master dating question, "Do-yew-like-animals?"   On company time.  Eee gads.  Please, someone, go back and edit it OUT.  And how many times have we heard him extol Marilyn Monroe, Kennedy's taste in women, or how George himself was in love with the ZZ Top MV TV video girls (He was married with children!).  How he wants Swedish women to go to Mars for some inane reason even the guest did not understand!  How he wanted Elvira to come back to the studio without her brothers.  How he acts like a Don Juan, and now owns two or three dating websites....... "Send photos.  Tom will screen them".  We heard that in video chat and on air many times, regardless of the fact that he claims not to be involved in the sites directly. I suppose it was his way of shutting down a line of flirty conversation, but what a rude way to do it, especially when he asks for it by acting like a Don Juan.  And how denigrating, to apparently relegate a woman's worth to a pic.  And how he plays songs that say, "I don't need to date a model", oh, for gosh's sakes why not just woof at that one, whoever she is, geeeeeeeees.

And him going on about how those self-admittedly underweight and dehydrated Victorias Secret thong models are supposedly an epitome of health and wellness.  Ridiiculous.  Just read their blogs.  A man his age should know the upper echelon of the modeling industry is not healthy.  He claims to be a family man, but seems more like Howard Stern. Saying he has kissed more women than Kissinger, what the Hell is that supposed to mean.

And he sucks when he plays odious songs that:
- issue back-handed compliments to women ("If I ever made you feel second best...")
- denigrate women (Pietala Clark "Kiss Me Goodbye")
- shut down constructive feedback ("I am Human)
     - and shut it down while expressing neediness ("I am Human")
     - and shut it down while gloating ("I am Human")
- condone racism (some Rolling Stone song)
- condone drinking (very long list in progress...)
- and songs that he sells outs, to persuade lonely hearts to join Paranormal Date, when the ad immediately follows.

And it has improved over the years, but his Freudenschade can be repellant when he gloats over having to drop a guest or caller, or goes on about someone's HIPPA information, or goes on about gruesomeness of one sort or the other.

And always having to know or Google famous people's names, or prove that he is up on pop culture.  Who cares!  Taylor Swift, Beyonce's controversial négligé, and on and on.  How paranormal is that?

And he avoids giving straight answers in chat sometimes, and glosses over stuff like a Gemini.
And he interrupts guests right when they get to the good part, without noticing it or holding it over like a Gemini.
And it seems like his guests aren't oriented very well to what they are not allowed to say.
And it was a travesty he apparently couldn't take a few calls while Shirley McClain got some cough syrup.
And not to reschedule her quickly!
The list just goes on and on.  He said something bad about ex-wives on the air knowing his producer is one!   She apparently noticed, so had blown it for all the Insiders who paid to go to his live chat that month.  He sabotaged his own appearance by botherin an ex-wife, who dolled out consequences which supposedly resulted in technical difficulty, canceling the chat that month with only a day's notice.  You know, I risk a $48 NSF if that mandatory recurring bill bounces, so I take a risk even going there, and he didn't even give much notice that he was a no-show.  Insiders were not offered refunds.

And a lot of guests long for more of a connection with him, but he treats them rinky dink. If he doesn't want guests to reach out on air in friendship, then he should write that into the rules, no fraternizing, instead of brushing them off or leading them on, live on air.

But, you know, he is the only inadvertent comedian I know.  And he has a lot of good traits, too.  He is sincere.  He doesn't usually waste time.  He tries to have faith in callers.  He is high energy.  He is always on time.  He is organized.  He juggles a lot of different things.  He does follow up, even though people say he doesn't.  He doesn't bling it up.  For a star, he is frugal.  He even wanted people to know his wrist watch is just a little fun thing, not exorbitant.  He is down to earth and very real.  He spent months engaging with haters on this forum.  He never cussed, never got nasty, and responded to a lot of concerns which were negative feedback.  If anything, he gave them too much time!  He travels even though sleeping onboard has been hard for him.  He works holidays.  He got Tommy on board when another show was laying hims off.   He usually hand-writes a much rehearsed holiday message, and I think he even records them in advance so they come off without a hitch.  Because he knows he's bad!  Like how he acknowledges every staff member at the end of the show, from a list which varies over time.  He seems to keep track of every staffing change, keeping his list up to date.  He carefully reads the acknowledgements, so as not to screw it up ad libbing.  It makes me wonder if he had to print his wedding vows in advance and read them, lol.

1) You don't actually know him.

2) Get out more.

1)  I think I've seen quite enough!

1)  I don't actually know you, Tim!

2)  Go to other threads more!

This flipping job search is taking a lot of my time indoors.  I had to do it because I kept my claim open even though I'm working a lot because I know I won't have enough work in a week, for quite a while.  If I had closed my claim the last three weeks, I would never be able to get a hold of the government to re-open the claim.  They slashed their phone hours to just a couple times a week, and during those times, I'll probably be at work, just like I've been at work during food bank hours.

Tonight I wrote the mere url of a you tube video onto a post here, and the video just popped up.

When is the next Gabcast.  How is it done?

The whole show sounds pre-scripted most of the time.

And I notice this very enticing get your Latin Beauty ad down below. I'm very tempted to click on it.
