    Post some examples of Howard's thought process that make him look out of touch with reality / the times.

    For me, his insistence that his past shows are worth money. Let's face it, Thss has a shelf life of a day or so. Once the current events and topical discussions have exited the news cycle, they go stale and expire. Yet Howard thinks that his tapes have the same timelessness as reruns of Seinfeld. His fight against YouTube and pirate sites makes him look like an old miser trying to protect a pile of old shit that he thinks people want. When the reality of today's broadcast world is that broadcasters in the know embrace YouTube and pirate sites for the increased audience gained by this process.

    Doesn't realize that old school Freudian psychology should only be used for entertainment purposes.

    I don't recall him ever taking down any of those uploaders who upload hundreds of clips from his show, a lot of stuff is up there. They mostly take down videos since he doesn't want to lose money on his Howard On Demand service; the only huge audioclip user they took down was the user "ericthebedhumper" (and later reuploaded as ericthebedhumper2) and I think Eric the Midget had something to do with that.

    The thing that really makes him out of touch is his constant discussion of his celebrity lifestyle and gay reality TV. He used to discuss things humorous or interesting to the average guy like stuff normal people can relate to but now it's him complaining like a spoiled diva. His recent fight with Sal over some small potatoes plug for dental work shows what a disgustingly out of touch prima donna he's become, he's worse than any of the phonies he used to deride.

    Blatant hypocrisy for starters. His "god" is all things money and how he won't take better care of his "team." The fact he's worn a wig for close to twenty plus years and looks utterly like a clown. Not to mention he has always made fun of other guys who do the same thing. The fact he's a sadistic fuck, who gets off on other peoples pain or suffering/major mistakes they've made. I won't even mention his better half since you can't blame her for his behavior.

    I could go on all night.

    Then making a fuss over Martin Shorte not being honest and direct about his wife dying,,,,,saying he should just be honest. Very different vibe when Camile Grammer brought up the bowling alley to which Howard denied having..... Why not just be honest Howard ? :bee:

    Basically everything makes him seem out of touch. What doesn't make him seem out of touch is a harder question to answer.

    You can't blame her for his behavior, but she is major proof as to how out of touch he is. The importance of designer handbags and red soled high heels, he's so fucking proud that he values such shit, he sucks.
