Jackstar is busy getting his beauty rest after he took a lovely entheogenic mix of LSD Viagra and Glass. There is the matter of the broken bed. But I won't get too angry about sleeping on the floor yet ;) WORTH IT! Guys, do this if you love her!!! Oh and Happy Mother's Day to all you Mothers!
 #Best

The truth:
Jackstar is a fucking junkie :*(
(REDACTED) is a mess and a super aggressive
Control freak that doesn't understand the
Word NO!

These fuckers both need to be locked up.
And they are both speed freaks!
I know, big surprise rite!?
They probably won't stop lying about me.
I just don't care anymore.
I need to go into protective custody now.
This is it for me.
Goodbye BellGab!

Those weren't even the good ones. I do kinda wish I hadn't... It's complicated. Jackstar is not a junkie. I said that because I was mad at him. He is actually the best. I am just extremely spoiled with him and testing boundaries, proving ground. It has a bit to do with the Cusp of Prophecy.

Be gentle, Gang: very gentle. If any of you think, that I have any interest, in defusing this FUCKIN' TICKIN' FUCKIN' TIME BOMB... well then, you have got yourself another think coming.

It would be difficult to overstate my satisfaction in regards to how current events have unfolded, yet I'll give it a shot anyway: This is fine.

Now... anybody want to go get some shawarma? I don't even know what that is! Sounds good though. Make mine a jumbo, extra mustard, and put it on the company expense account. Isn't that what the meta is for? "Expenses"? Good talk, nice walk, and if all of all y'all keep up all of the fine work all of all y'all have been doing lately... I'll show all of all y'all how to chew it, on an upcoming all-new Five Minutes With Jackstar--"Where Does He Get All These Wonderful Toys?"

Goodbye BellGab!

Good day, Sunshine! Just you wait until you see what I had etched onto your glass--it's gonna completely blow your mind. Don't worry Darling, it's done with a laser, not with a needle, it's fine, I'm fine, you're fine, we're all fine here... how are you? Cool.

You're going to be billed built for this. Union scale, nothing is too good for you. Welcome To The Next Level, Commander--you can't wait, until you get a load of Me.

In Warcraft.

I Speculate that adding fluoride to water cannot be a good thing. I remember a long time ago as a child in school we were given packets of fluoride every morning and were told very adamantly not to swallow the liquid. The warning was also on the package it came in.

every morning?  for how long?

For at least 5 years give or take 1.

We were also given little cartons of milk which we were absolutely required to drink.

We would smuggle in little 'parachutes' filled with powdered chocolate milk to add to the cartons but had to do so very carefully as it was a forbidden practice and the teacher would make her rounds looking to see if we had adulterated our milk with the contraband.

Just watched Ghostbusters to honour Mr. Ramis. Sorry, watched it the other day, last week - after he passed. One of my all time faves anyway. Just another reason to watch it,really. Man, I hate how time moves on and we age. I miss the old me and the old everyone else - or should I say the "young" me and the "young" everyone else...I'm only 37 but even I think...man things were just better then (15 or 20 yrs ago)

I don't think a debate would be all that entertaining.  For me, as SciFiAuthor has pointed out, Hoagie's mind lives in the Popular-Mechanics, Sci-Fi fantasy world of the fifties and I really enjoy taking my nightly trip back there with my bumbling guide.  The first Pluto marathon with the other Richards was great -- you could tell they didn't really buy any of his theories as fact, but that's beside the point.

What Hoagie is, is a modern-day myth-maker.  His ancient civilizations are deities for a scientific world.  In an earlier age he would have been a soothsayer or something.  Mythology, which the modern scientific world has abandoned, lives in the maybe-it's-true world of imagination beyond science and keeps the mind open and excited.

With science, the whole Pluto thing is going to look at a ball of frozen rock and chemicals on the edge of the solar system.  Cool, but with Hoagie it's a ball of frozen stuff which might also be something else...  Vastly more entertaining. and also more "true" in the sense that it explains why humans get excited about exploration beyond any practical, science-bound realities.  It's how we try to contact the gods.

I detected some guilt in Art's voice....after all, he up and quits, then the producer chick, Heather has this dude claiming he's from the future but can't figure out Skype.... of course in 2148 Skype will be built-in to our eyeballs so we will just blink to make a call. Dude was sitting there in his "secure location" blinking over and over again....

Meanwhile Art gets a pang of guilt for hanging little Heather out to flap in the wind, calls in and then can't resist taking over....

Most bizarre moment in Art Bell radio history.....

     Ok...Everyone remain calm. It happens. We all know it. It happened to me today. All day. The power went out early in the mornin', didn't come back up till midnight. And then...THEN...it seemed for a short while that...<gulp> something had happened to the internet connection, 'cause <AAA!!!!> it wouldn't connect.
     One had a number of options at such moments, of course. Lengthwise wristcutting with a rusty nail. A full bottle of rubbing alcohol right down the hatch. Looking at a picture of Tammy Fay Baker.

Art, I'm the guy with the wife from Cebu.  Art, I see how the people in this thread act like apes and insult each other and get off on misery.  Art, don't read this forum, this site, you're better off ignoring it.  Yes, I too am upset by your choice, but I don't know everything that happened and I know you do care about your listeners and that you are a good family man.  Art, you don't need to come here, and you're better off not coming and reading, it will just make your crazy and miserable.  I've learned from my long time online (I was using internet before most the the "people" here even knew what it was), even on usenet and IRC men were brutes, they enjoy this sort of thing, it's a very sad reality, a sad commentary on the state of the human race, but it's the same behavior that has led to wars, men swinging their penises at each other.  Thankfully, you don't see women doing that here.
Art, however you do it, PLEASE come back to broadcasting.  God bless.

Really I do....

 It is much easier to live under the shadow of nuclear annihilation rather than worrying that someone in one of your classes is going to flip out and blow everyone to hell, or that terrorists are going to fly something into something and blow everyone to hell, or that peanut butter will blow your insides to hell, or that Chinese capitalism will produce/own/consume everything to hell, or that some duck somewhere is going to fart on a pig and create a whole new strain of some ungodly disease we've never seen or heard of and send us all to hell. 

The age of terror sucks! Bring back the IRON CURTAIN!

And yes, I am fully aware of how awful it was in Russia before the cold war ended and I wouldn't necessarily wish that on anybody. Still, I miss the cold war.

So you think were smarter today then we were 2000 years ago.  If you believe that then u must be a retard.

Lets see, 2000 years ago hmm..

We didn't have McDonald at every corner, a wal mart every 3rd corner and we didn't have a nuke.  We didn't have a way to the moon ( if we went )  we didn't have computers tv dvd  so i guess yea were smarter today.  We didn't have people running around saying that there are worm holes black holes and countless other holes.  We didn't have pedophiles being praised cos they danced and sung during there life. we didn't have plains trains and automobiles.  So maybe your right and I'm dumb. We are smarter today.  I THINK NOT.

Look at the world. we have gotten fat and lazy and we call it progression.  Progress to what, an early heart attack.  Go stuff Ur fat face with hormone injected beef and two can's of lard. And don't walk to the store drive to it. Were soooo fuckin better then we were 2000 years ago cos today we can sit on our ass and type to friends and family instead of walking or living next to them.  We can send nukes to other countries and destroy them and pollute the world with a push of a button instead of walking up to your enemy and fighting them to the death like a real man. 

Smarter now then then cos we have become lazy piles of shit.

I actually did call into the show some years ago and managed to talk to the Art Man himself. I was shocked as the phone rang perhaps twice before Art picked up. In fact, I was so caught off guard that I stammered out the first few words, promptly got annoyed with myself, which caused a few more stammered words ...

I don't remember who the guest was that night, but I remember the topic had something to do about UFOs and why they played cat and mouse games with humanity. I had my own pet theory on it, and Art was gracious enough to let me summarize it ... and then something hit me:

Art had NOT said his usual, "First time caller line, you're on the air. Hi." So I stopped in mid-sentence to ask, "Errr, am I on the air?"

And I wasn't. It was the damned commercial break! Since Art is always pounding it into the audience to "turn your radio off," I had done exactly that just before dialing and failed to realize the show was heading into a break. 

I did get to talk to Art for a few minutes, though, so that was pretty nifty.

And how many times do you hear guests/callers talk about the aliens not interfering with events on Earth because it would violate the "prime directive"?  Seriously this idea from the original "Star Trek" series, these idiots cite as if it's a law of physics.

"prime directive" [...] cite as if it's a law of physics.

Actually, it is. Attend Me Here, Class:

Free will isn't really "free." Yet it is freely given. It is a great and grand gift, as has been discussed on many occasions. I'm not going into that here.

(This is exciting though, isn't it? This isn't like the first day of school--I didn't bring any syllabi--but, close enough.)

The mechanism by which will becomes "free" is unimportant for the purposes of this discussion, but it is enough to say that an individual's choice to pursue any particular action, word choice, thought, or thought-form, is the initial spark that activates the engine of Creation, at whichever level the individual happens to be focusing attention on. For all practical and metaphysical purposes, it is always the First Action that begins the chain of whatever result or effect is to be generated. Before one reaches for an apple instead of an orange, one has already made the choice--at least, so it would appear. But here on Earth (ha!), where we all of us have been given the great gift of the illusion of free will... er, I mean, the great illusion of the gift of free will, it is that way. More or less.

(We don't have to get into the weeds here. Hi, I'm Jack, and I'm a (CLASSIFIED). Shut up and read, thanks.)

And so in a world like this one, which at its foundation is a world based on relationships, both between individuals and between each and every other particle in the whole of the Universe, Free Will is a big deal. It's huge. Is it yuge? Well, that's up to you--I see it that way, the President sees it that way, and we're gonna see it that way, deal with it. Yuge. Everything that we see around us was once the spark of a free will choice, that lead on, and on, and on, in all of its... yeah, you get the idea. Sorry, I'm a little saucy this morning, I got Activated while reading the news while on the crapper--hello, LBJ--and now I have six more things to do before breakfast.

Even things that do not appear to be the result of an individual's choice, still begin with that first bright spark. It's in everything. I'm not getting into that part right now--not really my area, for example, how rocks talk and crystals sing, although that is some fascinating shit, let me tell you--but there is no thing in any of our experiences in this world that doesn't hinge, simply and spectacularly, on Free Choice. That's it. It's always there, right at the start. (Hi God, ty!)

Consequently, interfering with that can have significant consequences. I thought of some great examples, but look at me here--I am already showing off way, way too much. I haven't even had any cough syrup yet this morning. I might tip my hand. That simply wouldn't do, not today of all days. So think about it on your own, Class, consider the difference between, say, choosing to have a surprise party, and choosing to not have a surprise party, and then realize that if one were to choose to have one, it could not be a surprise--or could it? Yeah, and that's just an example involving partying. Things can get real messy, real quick, and it has been found that by simply respecting that initial free will spark of choice, lots of potential problems are neatly evaded.

This is not a problem for any divinely ordained being--God, for example, I won't use Myself here--as that kind of thing can be fixed in post pretty easily. *snap* However, in the context of the "Star Trek Universe" (hey did you hear about how I got halfway beamed out of my body once? It was cool), they're humans on spaceboats running around fiddle-fuckin' around on primitive worlds, so the avoidance of severe complications is a greatly desired discipline when the ability to compensate for unexpected complications is severely limited. It wouldn't be the same show if it Bones was all, "I'm a doctor, not a divinely ordained being... oh, wait. Now, I AM THAT I AM." Spock would lose his fuckin' mind.

Now, I don't know what Duke meant, all those years ago, when he said that the Prime Directive was not a law of physics, but he's a (REDACTED), not a divinely ordained glowfag. In the context of what we know of as "physics" here on the surface of the rocky world, Punylings mean physics when they think of "physics." Nevertheless, physics can get pretty broad. (Physicists can get pretty broads too, don't let anyone ever tell you anything different. oxox) Nevertheless, respecting the base level of how Creation operates here involves asking consent, even for such basic things as walking an old lady across the street, transplanting flowers, and replacing a keystone.

I bet most of you have never talked to a bag of rocks, have you? Well, I have, and that's no way to refer to that sweet old lady. I bet I'd like to replace her keystone later, if you know what I mean--and you know what? I WILL ASK.

Nevertheless, she might take a little persuading. Now, there's a line between okay and not okay on that whole "persuading" thing, right? Bam, right there, right there: that's the Prime Directive.

AND IT IS THE LAW.
