    1. Scouring the Internet voraciously to ensure that no unofficial thss clips can be found for download... When every other broadcaster not only posts their content -- many instantly after its first broadcast -- but also advertise it.

    2. Taking the $500 million production budget, and doling out $39 / week (assuming you're not an intern and working for free) to his "hard working" staff because that's what he had to endure growing up...

    3. Tweeting photos of his fucking feet

    4. Queleudes & hash oil

    5. Believing that his wife is hot/talented

    6. Still keeping up the goebbels propaganda routine with his audience, trying to get away with telling obvious lies that are easily debunked via a simple Internet search. Examples of this extend to twitter (his "ignorance" of the obvious fake followers) and to his show (his insistence that callers/bits are real and unscripted), his affiliates (sfn and their over-censorship) and his organization (pretending to be forthcoming about his show schedule)

    7. His sponsors (lol)

    8. Still trying to enforce payola schticks like guests paying for interviews/show appearances and/or stupid contract clauses like barring guests from appearing on other radio shows

    9. The blatent lack of relevant and/or interesting guests

    10. The lawsuit

    11. Whenever he talks about technology, specifically "his next move"

    12. Believing he has a following sufficient to support whatever media he decides to go to.

    13. Believing his self-appointed titles (king of all media, Beth is a supermodel) actually have merit

    14. Making references to obscure/out of date people/places/events

    He used to talk more about his personal life. back in the 80's and 90's he talked about being locked in his basement office, his stupid fish tank, problems with his wife, etc. He also made fun of the rich and famous. When he became Hamptons Howie, all of that stopped. He can't talk about his helicopter rides to the hamptons or how the upstairs maid fucked something up, or going to lavish parties. Most of his listeners couldn't relate to his new life style.

    His astonishment at the size of Lisa G's apartment -- "people really live like that, Robin -- it's smaller than my closet!"

    I honestly don't understand that. He's said for YEARS that his tv viewing habits are those of a 30ish year old women.

    Did he honestly believe that his audience watches that type of show? I would guess that even the majority of his female fans have no interest. As a femaie, and a past Howard fan, I've never seen a single episode of The Bachelor or most of those competition shows. I don't see that the type of woman who got Howard, is the type that supports those shows.

    Maybe for all of his bravado, this was the only opening into Prime Time. Probably his narcissism allowed him to believe that he is so adored that his fans would follow him anywhere.

    I hope that Sirius DOES privately give him his ratings. It's about time he got a good wake up call.

    I post on this board, so you'd think "fan". This board has just replaced the show for me. I haven't listened to more than a few minutes since Artie left.

    He thought that about his move to Sirius, and we see how that worked out.

    The delusions persist, though. He believes that no attempt needs to be made to procure guests; they all call Gary and ask to be on. "If ______ wants to come in, he/she can call Gary and ask".

    The time when the show had that kind of cachet is long past.

    He also believes that, if not for his contract with Sirius/XM, he'd have a shot at getting Fallon's seat. :facepalm:

    Howard is out of touch . He thinks Beth orgasms after 3 pumps.

    He thinks Ben and Rae love Beth. I think they hate her and see her for what she is. Plus, as an added bonus, she drove a wedge between the kids and their father.

    This just makes him pussy-whipped and delusional. Not necessarily out of touch.

    Claiming to have invented viral videos. He thinks the internet is all anonymous, so no one knows who makes anything.

    I was surprised that a hip guy like Howard didn't knowing what "smh" meant. For some things (AGT being great, fans loving the great Stern show contests) it's hard to tell whether Howard is just lying or whether he's out of touch.

    I enjoyed his commentary yesterday about how he attends college baseball games.

    WTF is that looney tune talking about? Why even make up such a ridiculous story?
