Quote from: widespread1 on November 06, 2013, 10:51:52 AMHaha if after a full 48 hours one is still trying to convince people to take the low road, it might be a sure sign that you are one of the lunatics.

Quote from: jblank on November 06, 2013, 11:14:17 AMWho said I was trying to convince anyone to do anything? I said my peace, I'm just here following along and responding to asinine statements now. He's gone, I accept it, but it doesn't mean I begrudge someone who still wants to twist the knife a bit.
Quote from: Art Bell on November 06, 2013, 03:30:29 AM My goodness I was watching a show on the DVR with my child Bride and come back to this? Of course I am not going to commit sewerpipe, I said all that tounge in cheek and I did not say anything that was not said here and over and over, spread out over 106 pages or so. My skin as I age is indeed getting thinner but my public skin has never been thicker. I just thought you would like to see how the same words used here would sound coming from me. I have not changed my mind about free streaming and intend to make it a reality one way or the other. I have asked Sirius to allow me to act as a Private Broadcaster, then as other shows do, I could stay on Sirius and would be free to stream all I want.If they go for that all will be well, It would mean no pay from Sirius but I am good with that, I do not need the money. If Sirius says no, then I will, at the first opportunity stream from artbell.com. Again, I am sorry that some people invested in a radio or a stream and if a deal is not reached will have lost out. You do not know whatwas going on behind the scenes for those six Weeks and if you did I think you might understand, or considering the makeup of some of thisgroup perhaps not, but I was trying to act in the interest of the listener, not myself. I still love this board. There is something about the core group that is somewhat loveable and I still feel that way, I do know trolls when I see them, and I can guess where they slime in from. I am toying with the idea of new hours for the show.... There is only one good way to proceed and that is with a better product. That is what I intend to do. Art

Quote from: SaucyRossy on November 06, 2013, 11:41:40 AMAnd just like that my mind is completely at ease. Thank you for explaining your thought process and what the plan is. Having you back on the air we all have been so damn giddy then for Monday to happen it was like the biggest gut punch ever. Speaking of which, my one request is that your first guest back be Graham Hancock, can you strive for that Art?I'm really curious as to what shows you watch Art, do you like supernatural (the show) or into like cop procedurals?
Quote from: Dont Fear The Reaper on November 06, 2013, 11:47:13 AMGlad to see Art's most recent posts RE: the show, but do we really think SiriusXM is going to take him on his offer of doing the show for no compensation in exchange for free streaming? SiriusXM was only paying him $75k/yr, which doesn't see enough to blow up their business model.If SiriusXM refuses Art's offer and he decides to go free streaming on his own, the non-compete clause that Art himself confirmed here means that he couldn't go that route until September 16, 2015. In other words, let's not get our hopes up just yet.
Quote from: SaucyRossy on November 06, 2013, 11:50:32 AMIt would make ZERO financial sense for them to not let him do this, they can still make money off of subscribers and advertisement by letting art do this.
Quote from: gbneely on November 06, 2013, 12:05:40 PMIt sounds as if Art went "all in" and dropped this proposal on Sirius with the ultimatum of "It's this or nothing." Sirius declined and now here we are. It's a really bad way of doing business and, in my opinion, showed very little concern for his listeners. I know Art says it's all to get a better program, but to ask an employer to change the terms of a contract and the basic way they conduct their business after 6 weeks is crazy. And to leave Sirius holding all of the cards with a two year Non Compete clause seems reckless. He needs to get back on the air, if it's not already too late for that, and handle this in a much less public way. Backing your boss into a corner with demands followed by threats is not the way to get things done.

Quote from: Mhayhurst on November 06, 2013, 11:57:40 AMI agree. I know I would keep my subscription to listen to the show and for the on demand features. Seems like a win win to me.
