Check out the nice coaches ...
I love these chicks !
It's got to be the most unlikely pair of broads to be radio gold, but it's incredible radio.
They do a great job of rolling with it
N&A is on the road to radio history with shit like this
I'd bang both of them btw
I love them on there. They are good sports and know how to play along. Funny shit last night.
get segment last night, nick needs to shut up though
Love how Arnie talks about heroin,hookers, and gambling around these broads and they try to hold back from being judgmental
It's like he knows how to try to make them uncomfortable, and they know how to just, brush it off Love it.
And then Rick brings everything to a screeching halt by spouting some republican, ditto head talking point that doesn't have any substance
I love the nice coaches. It was great how they reacted when Artie said "I feel that I don't deserve her." I think this has got to be the most common revelation in therapy. A person feels worthless because of some childhood issue. They feel they deserve nothing. They sabotage their relationships, they'd rather do that than be rejected, which they feel is inevitable. I'm not sure what Artie's issue is specifically, I speculate that he may blame himself for his father's accident. Or maybe there was something else. He talks about his father verbally abusing him a lot. Maybe that hurt him badly psychologically when he was a child. I hope he can do some therapeutic counseling to overcome these issues. It's not going to go anywhere otherwise, and he'll continue to exhibit the same self-destructive behavior.
Love the show but I hate when he has to crowbar in his political views. We get it Rick. You hate liberals, male bashing, PC bullshit and Nobama.
When Rick riffs he often finds the perfect line, and when he busts Artie's balls or pointhis out his little quirks like his legs tipping off the punch line, Richard is great, just wish he'd do that instead of talking politics
cool ladies....i emailed them and thanked them for helping our boys,especially rick,be nicer.
Good show. They kept them in for a long time.
Well put. I'm also suspicious of his mother. A lot of never-married men (heterosexual) in their mid-forties who call their mother "saints" have mommy issues. I suspect Artie has an overbearing mother who has gotten him to drink the Kool Aid in terms of viewing all other women as "not good enough" or somehow inferior to his mother (and sister). A lot of men have been damaged by selfish, overpossessive mothers, and don't even realize it. I remember Howard once said to him that he should examine his relationship with his mother and Artie wouldn't hear it. "My mother is a saint." Yeah, sure she is.
I'd agree a little, but you have to think about how Artie's mom Judy had to live when the dad died. Judy had to go back to work, had to fight with all the insurance company crap and probably pretty much gave up 5 years of her life just trying to support their family and keep things together. If I recall, they didn't even get some of the fathers insurance money until long after he passed, so when they needed the money the most, it was nowhere to be found. I'm sure Judy did anything and everything to keep them afloat. Between that and not just up'ing and leaving her crippled husband, I honestly have to assume most of they way Artie talks about his mother is genuine ( how she's a saint and such a great woman ). He knows she could have broken and fell apart, instead she stepped up.
Regardless, all of his problems are/were pretty simple to boil down.
1 - Instead of being with his father the day he fell, Artie lied to him and said he was going to sign up ( or go to a ) college class. Instead he went and shot pool. If he had not dicked off, he would have been with his dad and this never would have happened. Forever guilt.
2 - He became semi-famous, went to Hollywood and got caught up in the life. Drugs and pussy go hand in hand, and lived to excess. Who would not ? Qunicy Jones tried to really help guide him, but in the end he was his own worst enemy.
3 - He got a second chance at fame, and again crashed and burned. However, this time I don't totally blame him. He became a tool of his managers and the HSS. Either of them could have stopped him from drinking, drugging and could have intervened. They chose not to because a drunk and high Artie was way more " fun " than a sober Artie. He could have pulled himself out, but all the pressure from " others " was too overwhelming.
As long as this new project stays on track, and I think it will because Nick is more of a bro than Howard ever was, he should be in a much better place.
Excluding, of course, this week where they are broadcasting live FROM A BAR !
