    Hes still ranting on how the studios dont trust him not to share it one minute and then a minute later talking about how Garys son and all his friends watched the screener and really liked it.

    "Robin, Some guy at the studio leaked after I returned it"
    "Robin, I have an industrial strength shredder that I put it into after I watched it"
    "Robin, I talked to a guy at the post office and they said they know what the screener envelopes look like and they open them there and leak them.

    Those are just the three revolving stories I remember about this one. Im sure there were more "versions" of what must have really happened coming out of his mic.

    I never heard about the Super 8 thing until today, that's hilarious.. and yeah every time he talks about how no one trusts him with screeners, he accidentally lets it slip that he lent it to someone else to watch. This is the second time he's done that recently.

    The movie Seth Rogan was in promoting this morning. Howard tried to tell Seth that "Garys son and all his friends" watched it and really liked it in an attempt to let Rogen know that it would do well with teenagers but at the same time let everyone know that once again a screener lent to him had left his control. And we know it was his because he bitched that the IPAD it came on said Charley Rose on it who must have gotten it first. My guess if Howard isnt even on the list anymore due to the Super 8 fiasco and Seth Rogen arranged to get Charley Roses copy after he had watched it and returned it.

    he can't watch screeners on his iPad anyway (and ripping them into a file through his pal John Hein is "illegal", and probably what busted him with "SUPER 8")

    This screener thing annoys me because you never get an honest answer out of him aboot a movie anymore anyway.

    I'm surprised Gary still gets screeners. Aside from the fact that he has zero point zero value in seeing them, he's said on more than one occasion that he lets friends and family borrow them. There was even a time when Howard asked him on the air if his parents could borrow one.

    Someone answer this honestly. Why should he get screeners if he isn't going to review movies?

    I knew a guy from hs who started with the post office pretty much out of hs. He talked about how they were ultra-vigilant about theft, even going so far as to set people up to steal in order to screen folks. Stuff like leaving a quarter on the floor, even. My impression was if the guy picked up the quarter without giving it to lost and found, or whatever they had at USPS, he'd be shit-canned pronto.

    I seem to remember him having a conversation with ETM about it, (Eric was delusional and worrying that JJ Abrams might not have him on Fringe again as the result of the Super 8 fallout). Howard literally started the sentence by saying "I know a woman whose husband knows some guys that know how to steal these screeners". Very similar to "my college roommates friends neighbors barber banged a supermodel" type stories.

    I caught that too. Why is Gary's kid and his friends viewing screeners in their home theater? Gary gets his own copy?

    its difficult to rationalize those stories with the factual reports of letter carriers dumping their daily loads near Kennedy Airport rather than bother delivering them because the weather was really nice.

    He's an ass: I live in his neighborhood and go to the same theaters he would go to. celebrities far more well known than him go all the time. the audiences are totally cool with them in the theaters.

    Not to highjack the thread or anything, but back when I was 12 or 13, me and a friend used to sneak into the post office lot and go through the dumpster. We found that on occassion, they would throw away some mail, which many times, included porn mags. My mom found one of them once and asked where I got it. Not being a very quick thinker, I said that we saw a post man throw it out of his truck and we picked it up. Of course, my mom called the post office, and within about 2 hours, we had 4 USPS postal "investigators" at my house questioning me!!!! They take that shit very seriously! And this was back in the 70's, so it's probably compounded now.

    I remember that. He told Gary to put it in his bag so that he could lend it to his parents.
