    Listening to the replays this AM, Howard keeps mentioning that he's reading the book "Getting Things Done" and repeatedly says "GTD" (almost as often as AGT). He must be getting something in return, anybody know what the connection is?

    GTD theory isn't anything new or novel; most likely what is happening is Howard and Buchwald are attempting to establish some metrics for Howard's influence since he no longer has any ratings.

    For example, using Howard's old standby Google Trends, it is very easy to pull up a graph of "GTD" and see how it has been tracking. I pulled it up just now (9 June) and limited the results to only the past 30 days.

    Same query, but with "Getting Things Done"

    Just a theory of mine, but it sure wouldn't surprise me at all since the Stern Show has only been able to crow about being able to affect Google Trends over the past few years.

    way for Howard to show how progressive he is. he's marching head-first into the 1990s with GTD

    Howard Allan Stern is a greedy lazy serial liar.
    Repeatedly mentioning something always means he is getting something in return.
    Barter Stern is always wheeling and dealing!!!!

    "Doing things Half-Assed" or "Hype Over Substance" seem more appropriate for Howard.

    My favorite moment of the week was when Howard gave Sal shit for mentioning the name of his dentist and finance company, then a few minutes later said he had to lose weight to look good in his "John Varvatos pants" on the live AGT shows.

    Howard's the kind of guy who discovers something and immediately goes ape shit over it. And, if everyone else either hasn't discovered it or they don't take his word as the supreme truth, they are stupid.

    He's the kind of old guy who has changed a lot in his life and expects everyone on the planet to think and act like his 50-60 year old self, and anyone who isn't at that same point is an idiot. But, he wasn't an idiot before he thought and acted that way earlier in his own life, just everyone else is.

    Hahahhaaha, exactly, he is the antithesis of "getting things done". Someone please bust out that master bullshit list of projects he either never started or followed through with? With PORKYS, HS HIGH SCHOOL YEARS, R&R HIGH SCHOOL, DOOMSDAY, etc

    Howard is an expert on getting things done when it comes to taking vacations, suing his employers and sending out harrible pictures of his wife. It could be that David Allen is paying for some plugs or maybe Howie has finally ditched the Franklin day planner and is now going with this system instead. I read the book years ago but it is not a good radio show topic - if he keeps talking it up, Gary and Hein will copy boff and start mentioning it on the WUS along with other tech apps to help with the system.
