    This was a dead week at work and I was just doing some tedious engineering updates so I put on the headphones while I worked and listened to The Complete Artie Lange Addiction Saga from WDM.

    It reminded me of a few things.
    1) Artie blew the best gig he ever had.
    2) The show was listenable then.
    3) WDM put together a special that was better than anything Stern ever put together.
    It was compelling, funny, sad and very informative.

    It makes me think what could have been if KC hadn't gone nuts and gotten fired before the move to Sirius.

    Just Google "The Complete Artie Lange Addiction Saga" and you'll find multiple places to get it.

    I don't particularly find him to be a funny stand up comic

    but he's a very good yakker and the last time I genuinely enjoyed the stern show was when he was on it


    either way

    I wish him all the best

    Artie was great on the show prior to the move to Sirius.

    I miss the Jeff the Drunk impressions.

    The one thing the whole CALAS proved to me was that at least Robin had a much better and honest appraisal of Artie's condition.
    Howard simply took advantage of it for the radio.
    That much comes through loud and clear.

    The whole blow up with Teddy should have put Artie out for good.
    The fact that Sirius fired Teddy after him being gracious enough not to sue the HSS and Sirius just proves how completely bereft of morals Howard and SXM are.

    This whole also reminded me that you can't go home.
    That incident with Teddy was the beginning of Artie's death spiral as well as that of the show.
    It hasn't been the same since.

    He used to 'document' the show electronically.

    He put a clip at the very beginning of the saga where he calls into Riley Martin's show and tweaks him.

    Artie should take a weekly piss test for his podcast just for the Hell of it. Dude, you're supposedly going to tell us eventually what drugs you were on at the time, just be up front about it instead. A positive piss test for opiates or buprenorphine, so fucking what who's gonna fire you now, Artie?

    It's really a nice piece of work. I've listened to the saga, and it reminded me how angry I used to get listening to howard pretend he had no fucking idea artie was out of his mind on drugs. It gave howard content.

    Artie really blew it.
