is a self staged tribute show a form of meglomania?

    That's all I see here with this birthday show bullshit without the element of surprise a birthday show like this one is self serving

    It's really a Superbowl party. Any other weekend and no one would show up.

    It shares a lot of similarities with the parties jimmy kimmel "held in his honor."

    This. If Wiggy had his way, the party would be in late October and steal all the flamers from the San Francisco Halloween parade.

    Big Celebrities that show up are not current listeners and believe that Howard is the same guy from '94

    I predict many NO SHOWS!

    I find it impossible for anyone that still listens to the show to desire celebrating such a douche bag.

    This picture should be titled "Vaginas are Yuckie".
    Look at the women on either side of him. That face shouldn't be possible if you are even slightly heterosexual.

    It's Stern's audition. Sirius will track the new listeners that come from the promo event and use those numbers when negotiating his contract next year. Stern's fucked

    this is a great photo.... Wiggy is not cool at all. He is an embarrassingly old out of touch fool who really believes he is hip and his career is on fire. My 78 year old grandmother had more spunk than that drooling douche.

    I hate to keep repeating myself, but this is Sirius and John Malone forcing Stern to essentially audition for next year's contract. Sirius will see what subscribers and non-subscribers tune in, and then track the number of non-subscribers who subscribe after the promo event, and will use those numbers against Stern come contract renegotiation time. There's a reason why Stern and Buchwald have spent the last week planting positive article in the press....while mopping up flop sweat

    I would be amazed if the number of new subs due to the birthday bash breaks double digits.

    Unfortunately for Howard, Malone and Sirius won't fall for the planted stories about Netflix, iTunes, etc. all wanting the Stern show - there's not much of a real market for a 60 year old guy who has alienated his loyal fan base and needs a huge amount of dough to work 3 days a week.

    Normally adjusted people always throw themselves birthday parties. I suppose.

    I agree. If you look at the participants of this Board, many of the old listeners have given up their Sirius subscription and track the show from this Board. And in the last 4 years, how many new listeners have signed up to Sirius so that they can listen to Stern?

    Stern is fucked. Sirius is "throwing" him this "birthday party" so that they can track the new subscribers that this promo event brings in. My guess is that it will be miniscule and that Stern doesn't have a chance against Malone when it comes time to renegotiate his contract in 2015. Don't forget that Malone completely outplayed Mel K

    They 'make' themselves parties where they are 'honored' (despite everyone else on earth wanting a roast).

    I'm hoping that this turns out to be a going away party.

    Heidi is gorgeous. She makes hotness look so easy. It comes from within, the confidence of knowing you are hot and that you don't have to try. Beth, take note.
