Quote from: Asadora on November 04, 2013, 06:17:13 PMI am going to continue to have hope that all of this will work out. I'm not going to stop supporting Mr. Bell, when things get tough or when things get 'glitchy'. There are a number of reasons as to why Mr. Bell's personal facebook page is no longer active and so he shouldn't be slanted for it without there to be 'proven' fact as to what -actually- has happened to it. People that express their devotion and admiration for Mr. Bell until something unexplainable happens all of a sudden, those very same people turn nasty, against a man who is just as -human- as the rest of us, makes it easy for Mr. Bell to perhaps consider to not continue, which would be detrimental to his true and -loyal- fanbase. Mr. Bell has made every attempt at filling the needs of his domestic listeners and his international listeners by using Skype for international callers. His first Dark Matter show, he explained in detail as to what happened between him and C2C. He didn't -have- to give us an explanation as to what really happened, but he did. How many of us would be able to do the same, after getting the same flack which is currently being given to him now? He faced the expectant wrath once and I believe that he will do it again. Just be patient.I realise that a lot of people are upset and frustrated, but from what I can see there is no reason to jump this ship, for I truly believe that this ship is only changing its course and I'm certainly still remaining for the ride. (This post only expresses my personal views and is not meant to cause a flame war or offend anyone.)Kind Regards, from those of us that listen quietly.

Quote from: HumanBeing on November 04, 2013, 07:25:50 PMI can understand your sentiments... but the thing that really bothers me is it APPEARS Art does not even have the balls, courtesy, or INTEGRITY to explain to...1) his fans/listeners2) those people who spent $$$ getting a SiriusXM subscription3) those people spent money buying SiriusXM compatible radio equipment ONLY because of Art and him saying he had 3 year contract. (Perhaps some people would not have spent that money not knowing he would not be around for more than 6 weeks)I'm sure I could come up with many more to add to the list but I won't belabour, my point is... would not a DECENT man of INTEGRITY give everyone a little more explanation? Other than the facebook crap and also cowardly deactivating his facebook account to seemingly avoid any backlash.What sort of behavior is that for a man of his apparent stature? What kind of individual would behave this way? ...and what are their true intentions?It is very disappointing and quite honestly shocking to be treated with such little respect. People tend to sometimes say "Well, I don't owe you anything" or something along those lines.. well Art DOES owe us something... a better explanation than the lame ass one now that currently exists. Does Art truly expect us to believe that Sirius can not fix the streaming issues people had?!?? Yeah right. Good one Art, now step up to the mic and be a man of integrity and give us the REAL reason(s) you are quitting. I doubt he has the stones... coward.
Quote from: guildnavigator on November 04, 2013, 07:27:15 PMsame here, I really wish Lynch would have been able to finish the other two movies he had outlined in '92. We never got to see Sheriff Truman drive Josie backwards through the portal on the Creamed Corn planet with the Little Man from Another Place.
Quote from: Remley on November 04, 2013, 07:27:06 PMArt is in the enviable position in life to do exactly what he wants. If he is unhappy with SXM streaming, he can change horses.Instead of the anger and rage, stay calm and see what develops, I think its possible the outcome will be something even better than the last six weeks, if Art streams live thru his site, and SXM gets the DM library, than the whole world gets access to live material and those that want replays get SXM.

Quote from: bateman on November 04, 2013, 06:11:30 PMThanks, Chine. I'll try to get a new one up for this weekend, and this will assuredly be a regular thing from now on.If you haven't heard the first one, it's up on www.darkweekend.netP.S. Very sorry to hear about your dad, Seraphim.
Quote from: EarthAlien007 on November 04, 2013, 07:33:01 PMI'm just disappointed to see long time Art fans throwing him under the bus on this. Damn, do you have no loyalty?
Quote from: Araxen on November 04, 2013, 07:35:47 PMI hope there is more to this but if it's true this really hurts his legacy. I'm not too happy at the moment like the rest of us. What really gets my goat is Noory is somewhere laughing his ass off at this and that is what makes me even more mad.
Quote from: NefariousBanana on November 04, 2013, 07:13:39 PMWhat I'm curious about is whether or not a non-compete clause was part of Art's contract with SiriusXM. If so, we might not be hearing Art again for a looooooong time, if at all.
