    He tends to do that with certain guests. He has the knack to take any topic and do a whole monologue on it. It sucks when he does it during an interview from a guest you really want to here from. He does the same shit when he has Gilbert on.

    Al Bundy would choke that wannabe tough-guy Adam Carolla unconscious faster than Adam can say "I hate you Jimmy Kimmel!"

    while he is a Legit black belt under the Gracies I do think the MAY have let him slide a bit because he is famous....I mean, how many legit BJJ BB's do you know who have never competed in a tournament?

    I know that ed put in ALOT of time but I thought BJJ belt promotion (Especially BB) had something of a correlation to tournament performance/participation

    competition aside, he trained under Rorion for 15 years to get his BB...it definitely wasn't just handed to him.

    Carolla's been on a crazy up and down mood ocellation the past few months.
    He swings from bitter and angry to Andy Rooney with his 'have you ever noticed...' routine.

    ya dr drew was telling ray that carolla seems to be a bigger dick to everyone lately. ray was ripping him pretty good on drews podcast. carolla keeps telling him to wait until this all takes off & everyone will get rich, meanwhile ray sees carolla buying race cars. think he's sick of not getting paid & the abuse he takes from carolla. i think the stress of the pirate ship & the lawsuit from chris is starting to show on carolla.
    ya & when he goes into a rant in the middle of a guest story i just wanna punch him in the unibrow.

    Yeah, he lost me a while back. He's always had hogging-the-spotlight-itis, but it seems to have gotten way worse lately. And the better the guest the more he feels compelled to do it, which makes it triple-annoying.

    He needs a break, and more importantly, the world needs a break from him.

    The "hardest-working man in showbiz" thing only works if you can actually handle it, which he clearly can't.

    That wife of his seems like a real pain in the ass, though.......................I can definitely understand him not wanting to be home much.

    And what's his deal anyway? Is he mega-rich or is he just working for peanuts everywhere?

    After a week or so of bitter Adam...I have to tune out for a bit. He's doing good $ wise, but he has to hustle big time for it and it's no where near what his buddy Kimmel pulls.
    Adam has done all right, but I really think it burns him that he's never been able to break into tv/movies. He paid for his own movie and he's had a handful of failed pilots and he now says he's just given up on 'hollywood'. He's surrounded by people who are very successful in hollywood while he's doing a podcast and basically being a road comic....which he fucking hates. Hence dumping mangria down his yap 12 hours a day.

    actually a pretty good show today, the writer of goodfellas & casino (nick pileggi) with some good mob & joe pesci stories...
    pileggi said he always got the credit for pescis "you think i'm funny routine" but he said thay would just give pesci a scene & he would come up with his own dialogue..
    also talked about how the studio dumped the support for goodfellas in favor of the bonfire of the vanities shitty movie that bombed. carolla actually calmed down & let him speak for the most part, pretty good show considering yesterdays abortion with al bundy...still pisses me off. dick move, carolla.

    I dont listen to Carolla as much since as you guys point out when he does have a good guest in all he does is fucking talk all over the guest always going into some pointless monologue of complaints and the guest is nothing more than a listener who happens to be in studio. Then there is the first 30min of so of each show which is nothing but complaining about airplane travel or something he did with his kids.

    Rorion has the oldest school in the US and is one of the hardest places to get a black belt and takes much longer than most. Many of the Gracies also do not emphasize tournament competition at all. Right or wrong, they hate the format and the point system and think it's a joke and that a real match should go on forever until there is a submission and playing for points and position means next to nothing.

    carolla was blasting ray & few eps ago for going to carollas money mgr & asking for $100/show (weekly) back when he first started.
    carolla said fine but if you wait until it takes off, you'll end up with more...ray said he did make that deal but has never received a penny. $100 a week is alot for a guy like ray & his ace on the house show/loyality etc deserves it. he's actually funny & could go on the road with carolla but carolla seems to be more attracted to bigger names & less with his old buddies...its too bad ray has quite a fan following & if they promoted him more carolla might be surprised. the end might be near tho for those two, ray ripped him pretty good during that dr drew podcast.
