One might think that C2C folks and the like are a new phenomena but really our country was often founded, explored, or developed by zealots, crackpots, flim-flam artists, fundamentalists, crazies, drunks, and the like, in addition to the Founders etc (though some of them could be questionable even.) I love it. This stuff is nothing new and I hope it doesn't change (no violence or abuse though.)That's why when I get a chance, I should get & read The Rogue Republic. Maybe should combine it w a trip to today's Dominion of West Fla. Like when I addressed a post card to my friend Nancy in Mich., "Upper Canada".
You just need a mic and a computer to do a podcast.Do we know that DMDN as a whole does not make $ as a streaming service? Did it ever occur to you that the marginal cost of staying on 24/7, therefore having an overnight slot to fill, may be nil? Or that "the flagship show" is now mostly filler on the schedule? What station has its flagship show or talent overnight? What movie house makes its $ chiefly on midnight shows?
Why the need for this whole expensive live streaming setup? Why keep some bloated operation around if it is not making money?
If it is for the fans then why charge for archives to listen to Heather Wade?
Ok so the idea is we gotta take live calls..
Does needing to take live calls justify the huge expense of the entire bloated Dark Matter Network business?
Why can't Art just drop a podcast occasionally for his fans? Forget live calls. It would literally be free and Apple would pay for the hosting. Wouldn't be long before major advertisers came knocking. He could work with "Podcast One" or a similar company who knows what they are doing.
Surely that would have been better than this current situation with so many unhappy fans who not only felt duped by Sirius but were also feeling duped into supporting a network that now has a totally different person heading the flagship show.
The video seems to show a dump truck or garbage truck, but the news people call it a beer truck. Do Swedes haul beer in a dump truck?With taxes like they have, you hide the beer in anything.
No. Your memory is correct. I remember the same thing. He went to the South Pole and had a heart attack. He was evacuated but died.You sure you're not mixing him up w the doctor w breast ca?
People had bad memories before.Of course they had bad memories before, & they had the Mandela effect before. They just called it something else, like confabulation.
Your hypothesis does nothing to address this fact.
Remember his bragging about his athletic prowess in school and and full-collegiate scholarship potential? How he "narrowly" missed out on that? Funny, Harvey S. Lowery High School in Dearborn, Michigan, no yearbook, no high-school newspaper "The Lowery Light" nor any of the weekly newspapers from 1965 to 1968 has a single mention of George Noory playing ANY sports. Nor was he listed on any team roster for the Polar Bears.Did you try looking under "Dave"?
As far as the talent issue well Keith treated many hosts like complete shit just for asking to be on his fledgling network.Please name names.
the "Dark Matter Network" accepted peoples money and turned down legitimate talent that would help grow the network.Example(s)?
I don't know much about Heather but it probably would have been better to just give Heather a show on the Network instead of having her be some kind of successor to Art. It is how they marketed her as Arts successor that has stifled her career due to the backlash of Art Bells hardcore fanbase. She simply couldn't live up to peoples expectations. Your talking about stepping into the shoes of a legend, its not exactly easy filling airtime and if she had proper guidance she would have built a show that hid her weaknesses.That's interesting. Ordinarily late night would be where you'd stick your weakest. I do find most of the earlier-hours shows on DMDN better than MITD. Maybe the problem is not the time slot, not the legacy that it's "Art Bell's show", but the total hours a week -- or maybe the number of co-hosts, her working solo while the better DMDN shows tend to be panel-hosted.
Daniel, at risk of exposing my creeping Rooneyism* I will say that 30 years ago the standards were as such that folks like Noory, Wade and Church wouldn't have lasted 2 weeks in a long form radio show. Noory came in as a wonky DJ and rose via the Peter Principle. Church would have remained a sports reporter. Wade might have made ads for concert events and such.I'm past middle, my friend John's even older, & he says that indeed is why Knapp is good.
Looking up to someone who can conduct an interview look to the folks at 60 minutes, like Mike Wallace. I would suspect he was one of Art's role models. And Wallace came into TV as a former radio guy.
BTW, this explains why so many here now gravitate to George Knapp. Hes got the experience of a real journalist, because he is.
*60 minutes curmedgeon - look up Andy Rooney on youtube and you'll see where we are all headed after middle age.
I think heather is growing as a talk show host
I haven't had time to listen to much of it, but the opening is all "Dragnet" style. lol Thanks for digging this up!I watched it 1st-run, & can tell you it's not just the opening, it's like they extended all of Dragnet into UFO investigation, like it was the new beat they were xferred to. Episodes as formulaic as Bollywood cinema used to be. Still somewhat fun.
This probably is the silliest Mandela Effect topic I've seen yet.Link's dead. In some memories, was that dry land? Or just unnamed?
Apparently some poor soul is thinking Georgian Bay just popped up out of nowhere. I'm down with some Berenstein vs Berenstain Bears confusion but Georgian Bay?
If you are sincere about understanding this, you should probably examine some of the things you quit listening too and never looked back on.In my case the transitions are more subtle, and there's no tipping point, interest just gradually fades to nothing.
C2C would be one of those, but how about some other things?
For example, I don't watch or listen to basketball, and I haven't for something like 11 years. The tipping point for me was the organization of the game; I hate the last 30 minutes of commercials and free throws. I watched the Kings-Lakers playoffs in 2002 and felt the entire sport was rigged. So I just left and never came back.
I used to watch some world soccer with some friends, but after I moved and the friends were gone, I never watched or listened to soccer again.
Maybe C2C is like that for all of you, Art was your friend, and when your friend left you just lost all interest.
What are some of the things you have quit listening to, and what was the tipping point?
I believe our perception of breaking out the bbq in the summer should be turned to spring, fall, or winter instead. Something is very wrong with us associating bbq's with summer months.Why would it be better associated w non-summers?
I heard Jorch gushing over experimenting with Carnivora on cats. I envisioned Jorch's cat ladies rushing to place orders. "Here kitty, kitty! Come get your Carnivora!"Cats are Carnivora.
