A legal bill of what, $100,000 for the potential to make $300,000,000?  Far fetched, but worth it.  At least a man passionate about radio and his career didn't waste his time thanking Sirius for bringing additional listeners to his show for him.

Whatever, subby.

IANAL, so I have no idea whether his lawsuit had any merit or not, but his interview of Jenny McCarthy from a few weeks ago where she talks about squirting was radio gold and should be studied in broadcast schools around the world as a textbook example of how to conduct an interesting and entertaining interview of people who normally have banally scripted answers to typical Hollywood fluff questions.

BABA BOOEY!

Guy is almost 60 years old and still pandering to the teenage guy audience.  Has he crossed over into dirty old man land yet, or does that only happen to people not making half a billion?

On the road last week, I heard an interview with a guy with the-condition-formerly-known-as-Asperger's.  He had no notion of how to interact socially with other people, so he tried to model his behavior on what he saw  (and heard) done by others.  One of his role models for personal interaction/small talk was Howard Stern.

Somehow, it reminded me of a guy I knew in Grad School.  He was from Taiwan and his fellow grad students taught him all about idiomatic and "informal"  English.  The only problem was that they didn't teach him about context.  In everyday conversations, the typical grad student uses language only slightly more refined than the average drywaller or sailor.  It's a bit of a shock to be at some national scientific meeting and hear a guy say, "In this next Goddamned slide...", or "These Farking data show...."

I think he irreversably jumped the shark when he divorced his first wife and latched on to the underwear/smimsuit model chick.  Befor ethat he could pull off the "outrageous shock jock with a heart of gold" routine because, yeah he said outrageous things, yeah he hit on everything that moved and had tits who came to his studio but you knew deep down it was all an act, that he could never actually DO anything because inside he was just this normal Joe married to his high-school sweetheart.

All that went boom when he became the aging bajillionaire who claimed to have found the love of his life in a blonde bimbo half his age.

My wife got me listening to Howard a few years ago,  I was very very surprised by how good an interviewer he is.  He has a way of getting peiople to talk about things they normally wouldn;t.   he has to be a nightmare for Hollywood publisists.  You can hear celebs cvatching thems elves while they talk to him.  Its not as juvenile as he is protrayed, he is a pretty intelligent and insightful guy most of the time.

He is neurotic though and can be annoying talking abhout his problems, but he is very entertaining on long car rides.

If you cannot see the brilliance of having The Godfather of Soul backed up by a "house band" of talentless morons lead by a trumpet player who's is both a gigantic soul fan AND a "musician" who has not played since high school the show is on a level you are unable to grasp. You should then stop trying to grasp it. It makes you look foolish.

The sad part was that they converted Howard 101 to AGT 101 for an April Fool's joke, and the idea that they would actually do that was plausible enough to be believable.

After the cancellation or removal of nearly every show on Howard 101 and leaving it to basically be the 30 year old tapes channel, it was indeed plausible that they would have converted it to an all AGT, All the time channel.

Now, granted, the fact it was done on April 1st was a huge sign it was bullshiat, but it was believable.

Over the past couple of years Stern has basically turned into exactly what he screamed about for the prior close to 30 years.  It sort of started back when Private Parts the movie came out and it was this big love story which then was null and void about a year later.  Then Jackie left/got fired/quit (however you want to put it) and that led into a lull, which then was made right when Artie joined.  Then after Artie left/got fired/etc the whole dynamic of the show changed.  It became "Lets hear Howard talk about his eating habits" or "Beth did this or that or something no one gives a crap about" to "Oh look at the people with this stupid imaginary god friend but did everyone remember to do their Transcendental Meditation today?"  The guy basically became everything he despised.

This is common knowledge to anyone who worked at MTV's NYC studios during her time there. A buddy's brother was a cameraman there.
She was well known in the back offices as a "kinky pervert", as Martha Quinn called her.
Supposedly, McCarthy and Dan Cortez made a sex tape, and this is where Jenny discovered she could squirt. Dan was "less than capable" of helping her climax, and she took matter into her own hands. I don't think she balled anyone else from MTV, just Cortez.
Multiple partners were among her favorite activities.
Her vaccine rants are no surprise, as her rants against "non-natural" medical practices are semi-legendary. I'm not sure where her plastic surgery falls in here...
She doesn't use condoms, spermicide, or other forms of contraception, preferring anal for internal ejaculation in a one-on-one encounter.
