    Artie is poison.......everyone in contact loses.
    To think otherwise is pure nonsense.

    Dude, are you drunk?

    I know you hate Anthony with the white hot intensity of a thousand barely legal cheerleaders who date him, but you got your story all backwards.

    Here's what really happened:

    May 10 - Artie misses what will prove to be his last Artie & Anthony Show.

    May 12 - Media reports confirm Artie was hospitalized for emergency surgery related to a sinus infection and his ongoing struggles with drugs and diabetes.

    May 14 - At the top of the final AA Show, Anthony officially announces that Artie and Compound Media have parted ways. Keith Moresca tweets in kind:



    May 22 - After nearly two weeks away from social media, Artie begins actively tweeting again.

    May 23 - Artie tweets a picture of him being fitted for wardrobe on the set of Crashing.

    May 23 - Opie retweets said tweet with the command "Do my podcast tomorrow." This was not a job offer.




    May 23 - After about 30 minutes and not receiving the desired response - he actually received zero response from Artie - an embarrassed Opie feverishly attempts to save face by tweeting "Great @artiequitter I'll DM you the location in the morning. Peace"



    ^ THIS is what Ant took issue with. Opie publicly feigned a twitter exchange that never took place. It's the Twitter equivalent of this scene from Billy Madison:



    Now, even though Opie is a giant idiot, his dishonest tweet set off a firestorm of interest from fans of bad comedy and just-okay comedy alike. Which two days later prompted this response from Artie:



    Anthony did indeed comment on the incident on TACS 635. You can see it here if you have a CM subscription: http://www.compoundmedia.com/shows/tacs-635/5b07139ae7b34c106300678b/

    Ant also exposes Opie for having multiple Twitter accounts and waxes about the bad old days for another 15 minutes. It's funny and interesting and definitely not some unfocused, ape shit rant.

    And that's the way it is.

    Ants funny but he's not a radio host. Everytime Opie wasn't in studio Ant and Jim sat around watching YouTube videos. On radio. Ant blows on his own, Jim and Sam is processed dogshit, and Opie had a good show without them. Ants just a scorned lover.
