Discussion in 'The Howard Stern Show' started by pheelios, Feb 7, 2012.
I must give props. David Choe's Artwork is pretty damn amazing... He has some gift.
that was certainly NOT a boring interview.
You found it exciting?
Perhaps I'll listen again later when I'm fully awake
"Every major news outlet was calling me for an interview, except the Howard Stern show - I had to call myself to get this interview"
I have to relisten to this interview also because I was half asleep and this guy seemed all over the place. It was driving me nuts.
I never heard of him before today. How could I be so out of the loop?!
I'm with ya. People can't seem to finish a sentence these day's. Mike Ditka drove me nuts on the Superbowl pregame show because he can't get out a complete thought either. People need to slow down and gather their thoughts. Lay off the crack/speed/coke/caffeine if you get that wound up people !
Hint hint Bababoooey...
If the guy's speech would have been a little more fluid, it would have been great! Props to the guy for his artwork.
No doubt the guy has immense talent
The interview went a little too long but overall I thought it was okay. He's a weird dude, kinda funny.

"Facebook will return insane amounts of money to the early stakeholders," said Alex Gould, an instructor at the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research.
This qualifies as an understatement of epic proportions.
Gould, who studies venture capital and the returns it brings, said, "Facebook is not just a fund-maker, it's a firm-maker."
Moreover, it is a life-changer.
It is estimated that more than 1,000 people will become overnight millionaires when Facebook debuts as a public company with its initial public offering.
The numbers that count in an IPO are the amount the company chooses to raise -- in this case $5 billion. With the number of total shares and the asking price at the IPO -- in this case, a price of about $53 per share is expected -- one can figure out the valuation of a company.
With 500 million users, a figure expected to double fairly quickly, the 8-year-old company could be worth $100 billion the day it goes public.
That would give creator Mark Zuckerberg a payday of about $28 billion.
His father, given stock back in those heady early days, was given 2 million shares of the company, while Zuckerberg's roommate at Harvard University, Dustin Moskovitz, a co-founder of the company, owns 133.8 million shares.
Times $53 per share. That's probably a record in the Guinness Book of World Records under profits made by being assigned the right room in college.
A notable payday belongs to David Choe, a graffiti artist who painted murals in Facebook's offices in Palo Alto, Calif.
Choe was offered several thousand dollars for his services or shares worth about the same amount, The New York Times reported.
He took the shares and when the firm goes public, his payday will jump to an estimated $2 million.
He also tops Gould, at least in terms of sheer poetry, for the week's most intriguing understatement.
In "David Choe," a book of his artwork -- a book that includes photos of his Facebook murals -- Choe, who initially believed Facebook was a poor investment, gave some advice to his readers.
Skeptical about Facebook or not, Choe wrote, "Always double down on 11. Always."
very cool work
NOT Boring,just all over the place.
He's no brendan murphy.
Listening now and this guy is driving me nuts. Maybe now he has some time to go back to school and learn how to communicate.
He does excellent work.
That's awsome, from what I hear he draws fast.
hes a good artist but they shouldnt have let him do this to the green room......it looks retarded
