Quote from: Virtual on August 11, 2012, 07:50:47 PMI was listening to the stream a few nights ago and had a thought. Sometimes those things happen in between all the streaming bits and bytes. The thought went, Art Bell is being selfish. He has a real God given talent that impacts the world. He makes a difference. The subjects he investigates and brings to a public forum can be very important.But he refuses to implement this talent. I don't think 7 nights a week 5-7 hours a night of radio time is necessary. Once a week just to get things moving. A nice little web based show.I am sure there are extraneous reasons for not going on air. Maybe the non compete. Maybe it might be because he quit smoking and being behind the mic gives him that urge again.Maybe the memories of what once was with Ramona prevents Art from hitting the airwaves again.Yes he has a right to not put himself out there again. But I think it is a travesty in some ways. Just a thought. Not that serious about it though. Love the Art man and would like to see him beat the crap out of Clear Channel. As well as substance to some important subjects.
Quote from: McPhallus on August 11, 2012, 09:57:21 PMSorry, but I think you are the one being a bit selfish here (unless your post was meant to be tongue-in-cheek). Art did his job, was well-paid for it, and retired. He doesn't owe anyone anything at this point. It's not really his fault that the current incarnation of the show is a crap-fest. He's already cashed out.
Quote from: Virtual on August 12, 2012, 04:50:32 AMUsually if some people don't understand a point it is the person explaining the thoughts problem. So another angle on what I meant. Coming from an artists perspective. Did Pablo Picasso retire? Matisse, Monet?. Myles Davis, B.B. King, Phil Lesh? They can't. Their talent is in their blood. It is what they do. It is their bliss.Now I am not as talented as any of those people listed above but I could never "not create". Maybe being a radio host is not the same thing? But Art Bell, radio was his pallet, his guitar, his sheet music.Over and out. Back to regular programming.

Quote from: Eddie Coyle on August 11, 2012, 09:14:30 PM That age gap thing still amazes me. 40 years, man. To put it in perspective...I'm fast approaching middle age. But for me to have such a disparity, my bride would have to been born in...oh yeah, she hasn't been born yet! Circle a random date on a 2015 calendar. Yikes. I grew up with a kid whose father was 35 years older than his mother. It was a really creepy "The Night Porter" type of scene. Needless to say, he was fucked up. Imagine being born in 1976, and you have older half-siblings born BEFORE Pearl Harbor.

Quote from: scottydawg on August 13, 2012, 08:14:53 PMGood for Art, he married a cute sweet young Asian gal like I did,(Mine is 16 yrs younger than me.)Got away from the Corporate rat race, and he's having a blast! When our last kid is out of the nest in 6 yrs, My wife and I are heading out to Nevada by my parents to some little hole in the wall town too!
Quote from: scottydawg on August 14, 2012, 04:24:36 AMWell we met at a telemarketing company that was handling the incoming calls for the AT&T cellfone service back in the late 90's. I had a full time job a part-time job, but needed extra cash to save up to move back to Nevada by my parents. I had moved back to the frozen tundra to help take care of my grandparents in their declining years. After my grandmother passed away it was time to move back to Nevada and see if NHP still wanted me. Then fate stepped in. I wasn't looking to get involved or attached. Had seen her on the phone floor in passing. I had some fascination for asian women thanks to the James Bond flicks.But one day in the breakroom she was warming up her lunch and was singing to herself. My grandmother always did that, I told her she reminded me of my grandmother. A few days later she said that comment got under her skin. Now the spooky part, It was one month to the year that my grandmother passed away. Plus I had seen Mai a year earlier at an Osco store when they were having a Grand Opening sale.Had thought to myself, "Gee, she's cute, too bad I don't usually stop at this store." We found out later we had applied for work at Walmart, but at stores on diff sides of town! Long story-short, we figured out our deceased grandmothers got together in the afterlife and decided we would make a great couple.and now the kicker C2C fans will love, our now 13 y/o son told us when he was 3 y/o that he picked us to be his parents! So he must have been in some cosmic waiting room until we concieved him!

Quote from: l3urton on August 15, 2012, 04:02:14 AM"Don't clutter this up with facts and accurate information. Please, it's quite uncouth." This is at the top of the website after reading how this guy LIES so badly... i found it funny. i also find it funny that anyone would add truth and coast to coast as if coast to coast is into the truth. its has more stories then wwe wrestling. And as entertaining. So before you Rag on this odd guy... and he is odd... Remember this is at top of web site where you are telling him to speak truth on. "Don't clutter this up with facts and accurate information. Please, it's quite uncouth." OH and how many predictions have been wrong... by that goofy space guy.. who just switches it up and drops the call... but somehow he is ok. i think you would be better served looking for big foot then going back and forth over art bell. Wanna bully some one. bully those guests who come on claiming to have CANCER CURES and then tell callers to look up cures on internet.. i think ive had enough cancer cure shows. tbh. mocking aliens, rods and shadows is one thing. but mocking dead folks and giving false hope to dying people is kinda sick. Remember, "Don't clutter this up with facts and accurate information. Please, it's quite uncouth."
