    Eric and Johnny call and after a long.. long... long boring call

    (from MF)

    12/13/11.
    Howard said some of his fans are absolutely horrible. Howard said the guy is just making a few extra bucks. Eric said he thinks Howard should get rid of SFN (SternFanNetwork.com) and Superfan Roundtable. He said that shit is not needed for him and his career. Howard said he's right. He said he doesn't go on SFN because he hates it. Howard said he does like Superfan Roundtable though. He said SFN isn't helping his career. Howard said he won't go on that site. They're terrible to his wife and terrible to his parents and everything. Howard said it's awful. Howard said if Mutt has any love for him he'd shut that fucking thing down. He said Eric is right. Howard said for once Eric is right. Howard said Johnny would take care of that site if he could. Howard said he knows what to do


    • 12/14/11
      Howard had Eric the Midget on the phone. He said people really enjoyed him yesterday. Eric asked him to call him Eric the Actor like he did yesterday. Howard said he'll do that today. He asked what he can do for him today. Eric said he has Johnny on the line. Johnny was asleep. Howard said he doesn't need Johnny on the phone.
      Eric said he's calling in response to the fact that SFN is closed. Howard said that they closed down SternFanNetwork yesterday. Howard said he complained about the site and said he wished that Mutt would close it down and Mutt really closed it down. Howard said he thought it was a joke but he really closed it down. Howard said it was like a klan rally for the show. He said people would blast away at him and people in his life.

      Howard said he's not sure that Mutt was making any money off the site and it must have been a pain in the ass for him. Howard said that it was the best Christmas present he ever got.

      Eric said he's on another message board and it's not run that badly. Johnny was snoring over Eric. Howard got a laugh out of that. Eric asked Johnny to wake up.

      Eric said he's on another message board and they don't have any negativity on it. Howard said he has a lot of enemies in radio because people are jealous of him. He said that they have to say negative things to bring him down. Howard said he's not sure why they're mean to each other though. Howard said things can get really out of hand and people put up people's personal information. Eric said he had to change his home phone number last week. He said that he thinks someone posted it on that site. Eric said that he tried to talk to Mutt last week but someone was trying to prank call him while he was on the phone.

      Howard said it can be downright dangerous on that site. He said people are vicious. Howard said that if you want to say something nice then you get goofed on over there. He said they say you're sucking Howard's ass. Howard said that it's really the HowardHateNetwork. He said that they say that he sucks and blows and all of that. Howard said it's like you get mugged if you say anything positive.

      Howard said they have to ask Mutt if this is for real. It was still closed last night when he checked. Eric said he doesn't like his PS Message which says ''Fuck you midget.''

      Eric said he wishes that Johnny would wake up. Johnny was up and flushing the toilet. Johnny said he had just taken a piss. He was barely awake.

      Johnny asked Howard why Eric's roommate spells his name Jon and not John. Howard didn't know why. Howard said he had Mutt on the phone too. Mutt said that he's not sure why he's being blamed for the phone number thing. He said that Eric blames him for everything on the internet. Eric said that it's not the first time. Mutt asked how someone got his number. Eric said that he's pretty sure that one of the losers got his number. Mutt said he's not sure of that though.

      Howard asked Mutt if this is temporary. Mutt said he asked him to shut it down and he's shut it down. He said he's talking to the staff now and they're working on a plan on how to make that change. Mutt said he has a handful of people who volunteer because they love the show. He said they don't make any money. Mutt said that in 2006 money started happening but he really doesn't. He said he got an offer to sell the site for a million bucks and he didn't take it. Mutt said he got more than one offer too. He said he had people close to him that wanted to buy it just to put advertising on it. Mutt said he wasn't holding out for more money or anything. He said he had to keep the web site for another offer but he can't talk about that.

      Howard asked to buy the site for 5 bucks. Mutt laughed. Howard said he knows it's a come down from the million. Mutt said he'd like to rewind the clock and sell it for a million. Howard said he'll give him $5 and Benjy's wig.

      Howard asked what he means that he's going to do something new. Mutt said they want to bring people in who won't act all power crazy. He said he can't keep it all beautiful and nice but he can get rid of some of the negativity. Howard asked why he can't just keep it closed. Mutt said he guesses he can go to Facebook and do things there. Howard said he's already shut it down so just leave it down. Mutt said he has people calling, emailing and messaging him about it. He said there are much more worse people out there than there are now. He said there are people who get really worked up about it.

      Mutt said people take a side on the site when they have fights and stuff and that goes on and on forever. Howard said that it drives him crazy when people post about how ugly his wife is. Mutt said there are people who do it as a joke but there are others he's not sure about.

      Howard said his fans are really mean. He said Mariah Carey fans don't do that to her. Mutt said he guesses he'll keep it shut down and stop doing what he's doing for now. Howard thanked Mutt for the call. He told him to get rid of that logo. Mutt said he fell in love with that one but he will get a new one.

      Howard said Mutt is at a crossroads. He has to decide what he's going to do. Howard said it's crushing to read that site. If he read it every day he'd have to jump out a window. Howard said he was bullied his whole life and he's still being bullied.

      Johnny said they should call it the StupidFanNetwork. Howard said that he was thinking about Johnny yesterday and what a kick he gets out of those stories he tells. Johnny said that he loved when he and Artie would do impressions of his voice. He said that you can see his father on the web and see how he really spoke. He said that you can see his dad being questioned by Kennedy.

    Howard said his agent, Don Buchwald, is there. He said that he's actually Robin and Fred's agent too. Don said they've known each other since 1984. Howard said Don is the only one who paid any attention to him back then. Howard said he loves Don. He said that he hopes that everyone in life has someone as honest and as trustworthy as Don Buchwald. He said he's never said that on air before. Howard said Robin has horrible things to say about him. Robin said that's not true.
    Howard said that Don didn't have to present him with champagne. Don said it is Christmas time. Howard said the last time he gave him champagne he was fired from NBC. Don said that they are now hiring Howard and these are the contracts. Don said that Howard will be working for NBC once again. Howard said that they sold all of their radio stations.

    Don said that they're going to be hiring Howard in the world of television. Don said they've been negotiating for a long time and now he has the signage papers for Howard and NBC. He said he'll let Howard announce it. Howard had to sign the papers first. Howard said he has no idea what he's signing. Don told him not to worry about it.

    Howard asked if he's the new host of the Tonight Show. Don said that's close. Howard signed his name in four spots. Don said that they will have some other things signed and they'll be all set. He said they can send out the announcement now.

    Howard said he has no idea what Don is saying. Howard said he just joined the cast of Glee. He said that he just agreed to be on The Biggest Loser. Robin told him to stop it.

    Howard said that he's announcing that he's beginning a new and exciting part of his life. Robin said she can't believe he's back with NBC.

    Howard said many years ago he worked for NBC. He said the day he got fired from NBC Don walked in with a bottle of champagne that day. He said Don said it was the best day of his life. Howard said that he was stuck at a shithole and now he was able to negotiate. He said that Don said he would never negotiate with them again. Robin said that times do change.

    Howard said that they did drink champagne and Don was right. He said that Don has always been right. He said that he told him to be on the radio in L.A. and syndicate the show. Howard said this time Don is completely wrong.

    Howard said several months ago Don got a call from the people at America's Got Talent. He said Piers was leaving and they wanted to know if he would be interested in going on as a judge. Howard said Don doesn't usually call him but this time he did. He said he usually tells him not to ask about these offers.

    Howard said Don knew he watched the show and asked if he was interested. Howard said he was. He said everyone at NBC was very high on the idea. Howard said that all of the shit heads at NBC who thought he was horrible are gone now. Howard said this began a new era. He said that it's not NBC anymore, it's NBCU.

    Howard said that they know the people at NBCU through IN Demand. Howard said that they flew in and met with him personally. He said he was very pumped up about this.

    Howard said he met the people from America's Got Talent and he gave them a 1 hour lecture about what he wanted the show to be. Don said he took notes that day. Howard said that Don has taught him to let people talk and listen to them. He said he hasn't done that.

    Howard said he is a huge fan of America's Got Talent and he loves watching the show. He said that Beth tells him he's brilliant at judging the people. Howard said that the people from America's Got Talent thought he'd be qualified for the job and this is what has led to him signing on with the show.

    Howard said that he told the people from the show that he takes judging very seriously. He said when the young children come on he's going to want to talk to the parents. He said they have to prepare them for losing. Howard said that the nonsense of Howie and Sharon putting through people who are less than talented has to stop. He said that there will be no Frank Sinatra impersonators getting through.

    Don said that he has just violated four clauses of the agreement. Howard asked if that's true. Don said it's not. He was joking.

    Howard said his job is to judge and he will give h is honest opinion. He said he will hurt people's feelings.

    Howard said that this guy Sam Rubin did a whole discourse on how there was no way he would be offered this job. Robin asked where they're going to do the show. Howard said he'll get to it.

    Howard played the clip of this guy Sam Rubin talking about how he'll never get the job. Howard said he just wants to point out that people on TV don't know what they're talking about.

    Howard said that he told the people from the show that he can't move. He said he has a radio show to do. He said they were willing to move the show to New York. Howard said that the mayor will probably give him a medal for bringing business to the city. Howard said he's sure he'll be able to get his audience to show up.

    Howard had Mariann from Brooklyn on the phone. Mariann was screaming and said she didn't expect it today. She was going on and on about how happy she was but Howard had to hang up on her because she was giving him a headache.

    Yep, it all conveniently coincided with Howard announcing that he was going to be the new judge on the Gong Show which would cause a lot of Google searches of his name. Howard didn't want the critical threads on SFN to come up when his name was searched. No way the upgrade took as long as Mutt said even with his limited brainpower. He and ETM also were not enemies, one time I was fucking with ETM on Twitter and Mutt was there white-knighting him in minutes and telling the midget how to handle assholes like me.

    I never really put two and two together. Xavier did a great job of that here. :toptip:

    I just remember texting monk from work that SFN was shut down and perhaps he and Dawg should get ready for an influx of members. :yay:

    I'm sorry, I know I'm slow, but what is your contention?

    I don't understand

    "What are you saying?"

    Did he really????

    Well, I can't blame the seller. There's no way he'd get anything more out of that cheap bastard.

    That is the story he told on air. ..
    This is way back when he was saying that websites sucked because there was no way to make money
