Sybarite: At this point, why the fark would anyone vacation in Mexico?


Honestly, I'd feel safer in Cuba than I would in any part of Mexico. I think I'd rather take that sham tour of Pyongyang, North Korea they offer than set foot in Mexico.

I don't wish bad things to happen to people, but he's a terrible radio host. I stopped listening to the show when Art left and Noory came on. The guy's just dimwitted. Lacked the critical thinking necessary to host a show where you get the wackos of America calling in.

Art was wacky, but bright. He could be skeptical but still get people to tell their stories. It made for entertaining radio in the middle of the night. He often had fun at the expense of his audience (Mel's Hole). It was enjoyable to listen to.

Poor George...Let's hope he fairs better after his abduction than Randy Quaid's character Russell Casse is Independence Day. Otherwise we may find George living in a trailer, cropdusting the wrong crops and being continuously being nagged by callers to "Tell us the story about your alien abduction and anal probing."

While I agree that Art was the consummate host for Coast To Coast... I like George..and besides it's still way more better to listen to than anything else on at that time of day (or night).

This happened in early January I remember when he talked first talked about it. He had gone down for a wedding.

George, keep going back to Mexico until they succeed.
 
2012-03-09 10:22:39 AM
Did he talk about it on his show? It might be worth listening to.

The college kids will be headed down for Spring Break in South Padre Island next week. A lot of them go across the border to Matamoros to score drugs, or just to drink booze, if they are underage.
I mean, what could possibly go wrong?

This! I used to listen to C2C religiously, but Noory is just awful. He's also shifted the show away from a paranormal/UFO show to a new age woo-fest.

George Noorey is one of the biggest idiots on the planet.
Here's some fun documented quotes from old George:

"I would guess your mind is part of who you are."


"I truly believe there are other solar systems out there. I really do."

"A story is worth a thousand words."

"Can you add hydrogen to, say, gasoline... or does that defeat the purpose?"


"Who or what was the Great Pyramid?"


George: "But you don't know what it was you saw."

Jeremy: "No. It was a UFO. It was unidentified. I can't say what it was but I can say what it wasn't: It wasn't a plane, a helicopter, a blimp--so you tell me what it was."


George: "Could it have been an angel?"


Jeremy: "A what? What do you mean? I just described a round craft, porthole windows...How would that be an angel?"

George: "You seem sure it was aliens. What if it was angelic beings?"

Jeremy: "Angelic beings? That need a ship to fly around in?"
 
2012-03-09 10:31:18 AM
I find Coast to Caost entertaining and amazing for long car trips at night.

I'm glad to hear that George is okay.

/and who the fark is vacationing in Mexico anymore? Fark that!

And I love the show, not a big fan of Punnit but the other hosts are good and Noory is the best.

Most of Mexico is still relatively safe. It's like saying "why would anyone vacation in America because Detroit".

I make culture reference jokes all the time that people don't get, and it annoys me to have to explain.

So I won't ask wtf this random guy has to do with that played out aliens joke.
But I will add "better than illegal aliens?"

Yes, PLEASE do not go to Mexico. Especially the Caribbean coast. Please. It's really dangerous. Tourists are being mowed down by the thousands.

thesubliminalman: And I love the show, not a big fan of Punnit but the other hosts are good and Noory is the best.


I haven't listened in years, but Punnit still has a radio job, I remember when he had an evening show in Atlanta he was terrible.

I went to Tulum, Mexico about a year ago and it was absolutely fine.
You'd never know anything was out of sorts down there at all.

It's my understanding that the resort towns are basically business as usual.
 
2012-03-09 10:44:44 AM
Perhaps it was a Space Ghost?

May I add that the best thing that could happen to that show is that George be taken out and be unavailable?
HE IS AWFUL. Art Bell was masterful. Best radio host ever. He was able to take any caller and make them interesting. That and Art did everything by himself, and George requires a staff.
 
2012-03-09 10:56:35 AM
This is a report by a notorious lunatic about how he was "almost" kidnapped, and then how he was not driven from location to location at gunpoint to withdraw cash from hypothetical ATMs, and that includes mention of his "escape" by getting out of the car and haling another cab.

Nobody's bullshiat meters are going off? Really?

I used to have the radio on at night to lull me to sleep, and the station I had on would broadcast this in the wee hours, and sometimes I would just stay half-awake listening to the "Kingdom of Nye".

Art was perfect for the early-morning time.

It isn't aliens if they are in their own country.
 
2012-03-09 11:04:28 AM
Other Nooryisms:

"You do something annual every year, don't you?"

"I wonder if chupacabras are... Baby mothmen?"

After hearing a caller's dog.howling in the background, "Are you sure that's not bigfoot?"

Regarding the Mayan doomsday, "Maybe an asteroid will hit the earth or the magnetic poles will shift... Or maybe the guy making calendars ran out of paper."

"Why would an alien craft abduct a logger? These are questions we need to ask."

When interviewing Sylvia Brown, "Sylvia, is it true that in some states its illegal for psychics to play the lottery?"

When a caller was telling George about how he put together a chemistry toy from a science museum gift shop,
"You must have been a boy genius!"

"Are you doing prophecies.. of the future?"

2012-03-09 11:16:58 AM
He actually was kidnapped. Then replaced by the pod people, in conjunction with the RAND corporation, and the reverse vampires.

\ C2C listeners would believe it.
 
2012-03-09 11:20:07 AM
A few more nuggets from Noory:

"Welcome to the show, Jon. You bear my son's name. Not the full name, though."

"Sometimes I just have to bite my lip, and then go home with no lip."

"The farmer found a dead cow in the middle of a field. Completely dead, covered in crows. That doesn't happen naturally."

"Why do some fossils turn into oil while others remain bones?"
 
2012-03-09 11:22:51 AM
Unless you have a fully-armed tank and a small platoon's worth of ammo, no one has any reason to go to Mexico.

/Art Bell is still better, but happy George is safe

TheShavingofOccam123: Why do people always have to go overseas to be kidnapped? Keep the jobs in America


Don't worry we have imported the jobs. Phoenix, Arizona is the kidnapping capital of America.
Go on vacation there and make it clear you don't speak Spanish and bingo a vacation to write home about!

The good thing about Art is he'd just let guests talk in great length, and left the arguing to anyone calling in. He also had a genuine interest in the topics discussed. George, on the other hand, interrupts guests frequently, has no genuine interest in any of the subjects, even though he pretends to, and when he does interrupt and derail guests he takes them in the most mundane and stupid directions. And he doesn't just do these things once in a while, it's habitual. I have no idea how he ended up with the job.

I'm hoping John B. Wells takes the full time position next. He's got a great radio voice and is a better host.
