    The MAD Magazine and Soupy Sales references are like him trying to wrap up things.

    On another note, has anyone noticed him asking leading questions (often the same) to musicians and often they contradict him. He often has a narrative (that he expects everyone to go through) when talking them through their stories. Not as good an interviewer as he thinks he is.

    Howard's end is generally where Ralph the berry faced queer begins.

    Who knows. He might have a lowball deal from Sirius to stay on for two days a week and he ISDNs the show from Florida. If he's out of the public eye, he'll die. That means he's completely irrelevant, even though he hasn't figured out that he hasn't been relevant for 9 years now.

    He's a narcissist. He can't just go back to being a nobody. He judges everyone on what they do and how much they earn. He made enough money to leave a long time ago. He didn't want to. He could have left radio and done his photography to keep him busy. But his photography doesn't make millions and he needs that microphone in front of his face or he'll die.

    -This is the myth of the "great interviewer"; and why long format celebrity interview shows have not been a part of mainstream TV and radio for decades. They're boring.

    -There are only so many questions you can ask celebrities, they will either answer them in an interesting fashion or not. The interviewer has little to do with it.

    -The questions get repetitive fast. If you dont mind cleaning shit out of your ears for days, attempt to listen to his interviews of SNL cast members over the past 5 years. Repetitive, boring, and all roads lead to praising Lorne Michales.

    -Its easy to fall into a routine of an interview show. Interns, publicists and studios provide the bio/research, a list of 20 questions is modified, and you're done.

    Howard is a horrible interviewer. I usually can't listen to a whole one. It's like the Emperor's New Cloths. Everybody tells him how good he is when he really sucks

    So you wrote that song in five minutes when you were 20 years old?, he always asks 60-year-old former rockers in amazement.

    My followup question would be, So what did you do between the ages of 25-60?

    Usually the answer would be not much, relatively. These guys barely remember that spark of young adult genius they once had. The question gets old.

    What has me convinced he's done at Sirius is that there doesn't appear to be the "Will I re-sign or am I retiring" schtick going on. I mean, I don't listen so it could be, but there's been no mention here. Every time he has re-signed in the past, we've had to hear him go on and on for weeks like that, "I think I might just retire, it's getting too much" or "But I care about all these people and feel a responsibility to keep them working" bullshit. He did that kinda thing with AGT each year, as if anyone even gave a shit about that. Then, none of that with AGT when he was actually done. He made his early announcement to get it out there before they made an announcement that he'd be replaced with Simon.

    If he had a deal in place with Sirius, I think he pulls this same "Am I leaving or staying" shit. For those suckers still listening, has he been doing any of that? Doesn't mean Sirius won't buckle at the end and give him a contract he's willing to accept, but I sure hope not. I'm very much looking forward to him having to prove himself on some sales based salary deal.

    He is no longer lucrative for Sirius. Its over Johnny.

    I can't wait for him to start a podcast so he can see how relative he really is .
