    This is a completely experimental and brand new thread topic that I'm trying out here. Surely this has never been attempted before in the history of this forum.

    I'm a novice, too much sarcasm?

    Too much Howard hate around here!

    This is a thread of positivity!

    This isn't intended to be a contrarian post for attention. Okay, maybe it is.

    Sure, the shit he's up to these days makes me sick, just like everybody else here. But to be fair, the guy has a freaky level of intelligence that few can even fathom. He was gifted with charisma that would make Hitler jealous. And after reaching such a tremendous height of success, he was still able to keep his shit together for years and stayed funny and edgy for far longer than most other comedians before selling out. In contrast, look at Chris Rock. Better yet, Eddie Murphy. Jesus wept...

    I think Stern rivals the funniest and most entertaining people of alltime. I'd put him up there with the likes of Groucho Marx.

    I'm sure most of you guys still love him but goddamn, it just seems like an endless stream of negativity and hatred here sometimes. Am I off base with that assumption?

    Feel free to shit all over my stupid thread. :tumble:

    I don't hate Howard. I'd like it if he put more energy into his show and lifted the ban on people Marci thinks are gross (i.e. - Gilbert, Artie, Lampinelli)

    Compare has-been Wiggy, 62, to talented Larry David, 68.

    Wiggy does to two things: 1) Puts out an unfunny show. 2) Blames everybody else for his lack of talent.

    While Larry David continues to be hilarious.

    He provided many hours of laughs. Now his only value is to be mocked. No biggie. Good times.

    The reason I bash him now is because he did a great show back in the day . I used to laugh the whole show . It's sad . He stayed at the party way too long and should have packed it in after the first run at Sirius was over .
    If you watch the old channel 9 shows they are still funny as hell .
    It's too bad that it's getting to the point that he has sucked longer than he was good . Same thing happened to Elton John . He has sucked longer than he was good . SNL has blown longer than it was good . The main problem is he has turned into everything he used to bash and taught us all to hate . So why would we not goof on him ? He showed us the way to bash shit .

    This photo always fascinates me. Why is so much photoshopped used? What is wiggy trying to hide? Why did he do that to the dogs paws? I mean he put this out for the public to see.

    This picture perfectly illustrates exactly how stupid Stern thinks the public is. HE knows he used photoshop, but the rest of the peasants will never know!

    And he's an unbelievably original and creative painter, as well!

    I'm half surprised he didn't paint the watermarks. :jj:

    This one gets me even more than the dog photoshop.
    It's just fucking bizarre.
    Not a wrinkle in sight on either of them.
    I wonder how much time he spent trying to "fix" the picture ?

    I don't hate Howard, I actually still like him. His show sucks for the most part. And that's on him. It's not about his age. Not about Marci Turk, the show was already bad when she was hired. He consciously changed the show.

    There are and were plenty of older people than Howard that remained edgy. Joan Rivers was as edgy as possible til the day she died to name one.

    I dont want Howard to be the angry asshole ripping the dead father of a competitor.... but a little honesty and less bullshit would be great.

    If you notice... he'll rip certain celebs. Jennifer Lopez, Jay Leno., but then he'll say Lena Dunham is a beautiful woman. He rips the wackpack. So he didn't 'evolve', he adjusted his playbook to be more attractive to the mainstream and celebs.

    How many times are we gonna hear about his early days in radio? Once per week at minimum. He doesn't care about his show anymore. Hasn't in years. It's frustrating because he is a fucking funny dude with great ways of putting things but he just won't do it any longer. But I'd say that Howard is my favorite celebrity of all time.
