Politics / Re: Trump 2012?

Quote from: onan on April 30, 2011, 09:33:37 PM
Forgive my cynicism. But it is all a clown show.

I hate Reagan, you hate Clinton. Like they both were the only person of power and influence.

Old Money and Corporate lust for power and greed have manufactured a culture of contempt. And they have all of us dancing to their tune. Mostly we eat it up.

It's a helluva lot easier to hate someone than it is to find substantive compromise. And believe me when I tell you that the two parties do not want us to compromise. If we did we wouldn't need them. So we get distracted as to when a cell is a person. We get hypnotized into thinking someone on welfare is on easy street. Cuz god knows that is the evil in the room.

There is little civility or tolerance for informed debate in this country.

But as far as trump goes... well the fact that we are even discussing him as a possibility should make us all cry.
well said!

Thank you to akwilly, brig and whoozit for joining me. Another fun "show".
Jazz, what's the best way for me to monitor your jazz cast? Is there a URL I can enter into my podcast aggregator? Or maybe a way to let me (And your fans)  know by email what URL to look for?  Or should I just monitor this thread for announcements?

Do I ever ask about your frequent visits to the petting zoo?
turns out it's a fine line between petting and  fondling. According to the judge anyway.

standards did change. 

after art quit again, i knew what was about to come.  rather than put my life on hold monitoring the forum for unsavory comments or bringing in additional moderators who would undoubtedly destroy the forum, i decided not to moderate the forum at all (the exception being porn, etc.).  some agree with that decision, some don't.  fine. 

having said all of that, i didn't create the problem and it's not my responsibility to massage the tone of conversation around here.  if i did so, even a little bit, then i'd have to do it completely because anything less would generate complaints about my "capricious and arbitrary" moderation.  simply put, i just don't give a shit anymore.  indifference is liberating.
ha! "Indifference is liberating". I think Caligula said that. And Nero fiddled while Rome burned.  There are many that feel absentee moderation IS the death of the board. ya got a house full of cockroaches once in a while ya gotta call the exterminator. you have to have a certain degree of quality. who wants to leave here feeling like they need to take a shower.
  But Thanks, amV, for eloquently stating your position. Finally.

Yeah we are doing a new episode soon.  I've got a new podcasting computer and figure I could let some bellgabbers do a gabcast as I run it through a test show.

Thanks GS for throwing that out there. I would really like to give my co-hosts the chance to guide the episode and I'll keep things connected and moving along.  So if you've ever wanted to be the lead on a show this is your chance.
I hope that commodore Vic 20 I sold you works out for you! (This might be a joke that only WR250 gets)
LMH is like a Computer intelligence. She has massive photographic memory answering callers on the fly with intricate detail. including cases years old, with no mistakes. she can talk for hours without hesitation or speech/grammatical errors. Fascinating. Last night she was way way out there. Sometime she leaves me cold and can be quite dry but last Night… I guess I would say it's my favorite Heather  Wade show so far.
  The fun thing about Linda is that even though she seems to believe every single fevered delusional dream that her interviewees tell her we can still pretend that they might be true and think about it from that perspective. Does take a tremendous amount of suspension of disbelief. You find yourself thinking most of the time how can Linda believe this stuff?
aha! Your quick reply was designed to make us think you're local but little did you know I have an app here that tells me your IP address for your message is actually in Pahrump Nevada.
  And jaz is the one who puts the RUMP in Pahrump. :-)
I heard a rumor that jazmunda, Mudking and Aldous flew out to Pahrump Nevada to track down the stalker which is why they aren't around lately.

If only you could put a finger on what's making you sick. That could be very useful information for MV.
I would suggest we schedule a colonoscopy except he likes them too much!

I download these as they come down with my pod catcher... I dont think i've gotten through a whole show yet.  Even putting the half-hour commercials aside.  It's been like listening to Noory.  You could have the most faschinating guest and it will still suck.
I can't find it in me to muster up any kind of disagreement with you. But I do like the interrogation styles of Chris and Jean much better then George's. At least they listen to the responses to their questions.

This is no longer an Art Bell fan forum, It is not a Heather Wade fan forum. I really don't know what it is now. Maybe it should go back to a George Noory Sucks forum. People here just seem to love to hate on things and people.
welcome to your Bellgab epiphany.

All good points. It is fairly heretical to say anything good about Noory on BG. But ironically, with Heather (Noory's big critic here) taking over MITD, some people were at some point going to assess the two with Noory comparing favorably.

You do take what you can get, as long as it's reasonably listenable, and I have been looking for alternatives. Once in a while, I'll land on C2C with one host or another doing the show. After all the start-up dramas enveloping MITD, I do appreciate a professionally run radio operation that keeps things moving along smoothly.
I gave noory's program a very fair objective chance and he had me hating it within a week. Have you tried "the Paracast"? with Jean Steinberg and Chris O'Brien. Commercials are marathon frequent and  four:31 minutes long  (Which can be fast forwarded through). The program is usually over two hours long and every now and then they have a decent guest. It's an alternative and I would say better then George Nori.

The last few days I thought I heard a new commercial or two from Art. I wonder, if this is the case, is it OK with the stalker if Art still does commercials from behind the scenes?

I don't have an ignore list yet, but I feel it would be futile because the context of the thread's conversation would be fucked with people replying to people I can't see.
when someone responds to a person on your ignore list you are then able to see their post.

Like you even fucking know or care beyond the desire to be as big of a public asshole as you possibly can be. You are here to amuse yourself instead of contribute.
it's a fair point but I think it very much depends on how one defines the word "contribute". Yes, whyP is often tongue in cheek and satirical but I find him highly amusing,  entertaining and tremendously insightful. and, I would add, Ginuwine and honest in his opinions. of course that doesn't mean that you and I will agree with him on every issue but he's comfortable with that.
  I hate to see you two bicker.
Has the stalker gotten to mudking and Jamunda (sic) causing  them to shut down their podcast? Tune in next week!

First off- I'm not trying to pick a fight with you Tarbaby, just throwing out some questions to the group in general. My use of the word 'you' is directed to the group.

Conflict is common on most boards from time to time. Bellgab happens to cover topics about people in the media and I would expect it to be a draw for pro and con voices. MV is the administrator and can set it up whatever way suits him. I expect him to try and make some profit- why not? He has to deal with running it all. He offers us a place to debate, share interests, connect with podcasts, and even provides them with the help of other long time members. Do you think he deserves no compensation for any of these services?

Some people have complained about BG having cliques- Ha- you should see what happens when you have a moderator with a clique of 'pets'. If someone says anything the pets don't like, the report buttons alert the mod and the inquisition begins. The mod and the pets end up running the board like the mean girls in a Disney movie. One by one your favorite posters disappear and you end up leaving as well.

Is that what you would like to have happen here? Who wants to volunteer to be a mod? Who gets to decide what's acceptable and what is not?

I appreciate what MV has created and hope he keeps it as is.
yes, I'm familiar with all of your points. I wasn't taking a position in my post pro or con, just presenting an Objective overview.

I have enjoyed your posts. I suggest you do yourself a favor and put old Jackstar on your ignore list. I (And many many others) did it many months ago and have never regretted it.

I wonder if we have that much influence? Or a better question, should we have that kind of influence?

This whole mess is beyond any measure of explanation. I tried to explain it to my wife. It became more mired in minutia and speculation, after several minutes it became quite clear I was going to be grounded from the internet.
  , This rapacious invasion of malcontents not only disturbs innocent long-term bellgab core fans but also simultaneously increases page views from which Bellgab profits.
  There is an ongoing drive-by mugging of the board but it is allowed to continue because, as MB openly admits, Any interference or censorship would reduce profit. Also, to some extent, reduce, MV speculates, Long term board viability by stifling free idea exchange.
  It's a textbook example of capitalism versus ethics. I.e., personal gain being the strongest insurance of a successful enterprise. it is what brought the Usa to the top of the Global foodchain.
  It could happen however that the long term core base become so alienated that they leave thereby also reducing the overall page views.
  To confuse things even further I noticed recently that art was conflating his loyal long-term fans here with the recent influx of marauding mutant hormonal teenage Nori devotees.

Okay, I've googled this and I can't translate it.

yes. It doesn't seem to make sense but it SOUNDS convivial.
PS, excellent show prep and game plan. Made for a good flow and strong show.
Jaz, when the program starts and I hear the intro by art I do get a bit choked up. And I think to myself wow, jaz must really love this intro. After all, it's by a man he's been dare I say devoted to for decades. In a way, it's like a bit of a dream come true I bet. :-) admiring

I am sure I'm beating a dead horse here, but if art would have just said, "I'm laying low until this stalker is caught" or something like that., instead of trying to force us to like Heather that would have been much easier to deal with.
every time I see a post like this I think, the stalker must be convinced that art is leaving permanently as per the stalker's demand for the family to be protected. If the stalker hears art say he's only leaving temporarily (As a ruse) he may proceed with his vendetta. And by the way don't you think the stalker may well be reading this thread?
  My theory is that the stocker never meant to shoot at our hurt anyone but his whole plan is to intimidate and force art to quit the program. Why anyone would have that particular wish I can't figure out yet. The first obvious answer would be arts opposition. Secondly, a disgruntled departed staff member.

Hearing Heather host Art's show is like watching some random guy make love to clumsily fuck my wife.
you make it sound like it happens fairly often.
