    Sometimes Howard talks and you wonder WTF. I'm not talking when he has a different opinion that you but where he is talking like a babbling idiot.

    Couple instances, Robin was talking about Walking Dead, now Howard raves about the show so it isn't as if it's something he doesn't care about. They were talking about last week's episode and she mentioned the people coming back as zombies without getting bitten. Howard told her no, Robin told him yes and gave the examples.
    Anyone watching the show knows they make this very clear, a couple of times, it is an huge part of the plot now.

    Howard mentioned he was in the hall talking about the episode and next thing you know Shane from the movie was in the hall and says "Howard, you're talking about me" The he mentioned Shane told him you're my hero and Ronnie thought it was about him. Laughed at Ronnie about it. Ronnie comes in and corrects Howard. He said Howard was walking down the hall and Shane came up to Ronnie, hugged Ronnie and said, "you're my hero". He never shouted out to Howard, the conversation never went to Howard.

    Of course Gary chimed in and said Shane was a superfan and Howard's show is his favorite which doesn't explain why he didn't do Howard's show and was on his way to do O&A.



    I realize that when you talk for four hours you're going to say things that might not be completely accurate but Howard just seems like a scatterbrained ditz lately.

    the interesting thing about that, is 98% of the time, we don't know if he's embellishing we doin't think of it.
    his statements seem perfectly reasonable, unless someone else says otherwise


    as to when he comments on a tv show or movie, i feel he wants to spin it one way or the other based on if he likes or doesn't like someone involved with it.
    most times he hasn't even seen what he's trashing/praising.

    Exactly why I stopped listening :if he isn't re-repeating a years old story (Probably revisionist version) he is making up complete lies and irelevant bullshit. Never talks about news anymore, because he doesnt have a clue about current events and it is probably crap that is weeks old by the time he catches on and is working one of his rare days on the show.

    This. Howard is full of shit and I don't believe anything he says anymore. Shit. I'll believe an Artie story over anything Howard says these days. I seriously think that hanging around Beth has made him dumber than he was before if that is possible.

    I assume everything Howard likes is bought and paid for or some kind of bartering.
    Wiggy regular mentions TV shows and movies he obviously hasn't watched!
    Truth and honesty are never an option with anyone at team Stern.

    I am glad you posted this. Now I know that I am not the only one who thinks this way. I thought it may be the "grueling" AGT schedule, or the lawsuit, but I am not sure.

    I found it odd that he admitted being sad and depressed. He blamed it on Bianca getting old, but I wonder if all of this has more to do with the Bethman not being by his side to stroke his ego. He is definitely having some kind of inner turmoil and it is beginning to show in his actions.

    Saying he is going to bullshit, I realize, you can't spend 4 hours a day without embellishing but the cluelessness is what's getting me.

    Another example Robin mentioned Ronnie Montrose dying and Howard went on about never hearing of him, "and I was a disc jockey". Really? You don't have to like Montrose but they were huge. Ronnie Montrose himself played for many people and the group Montrose even spawned Sammy Hagar. To say you never heard of them?

    Oh well back to AGT talk.

    Another doozy is back pain. Howard claims (Dr Sarna bullshit) that pre WW2 nobody had back pain. It is all psychosomatic. Really? I hung iron for a couple of summers as a union ironworker and I can attest that back pain if real.

    Gluten? Why do people worry about gluten? It's all psychosomatic. Nobody had this problem before.....Fucker, my 10 year old has celiac disesase and can't eat gluten and this was from when he was 2. I don't think anybody planted the seed in his psyche.

    I couldn't believe he was actually saying this nonsense on the air when I heard it.

    If Sarno's book actually claims that there was NO backpain prior to WW2, and Howard actually believes this, I highly question his intelligence.

    Basically, if his lips are moving, he's lying. And narcissists can't see past their own noses (no matter how many times they shave the tip off), so he's clueless about anything that isn't happening in his bubble world.

    p.s. The "Shane" guy was on his way to do Geektime.

    When was the last time Howard WASN'T clueless, lying, and embelishing? That's pretty much a spot-on description of him.
