I just thought of that.
Howard doesn't love Artie . . .
Life is so fragile and short that I find it hard to comprehend that Howard is still "freaked out" "recovering" from Artie's attempted suicide. I can not imagine making a person I love just disappear out of my life because of my love for that person.
Howard only loves himself and his precious Marbles . . .
What "freaked" Howard about that situation was whether he and his marbles had any liability from making his "bro's" addiction content for mockery on his radio show.
Howard fired Artie
I clearly recall Howard telling Artie that they are like brothers at war and would jump in a foxhole with him.
The only foxhole he is jumping into is Jamie's.
Sure he would, after making sure the grenade had already exploded on Artie and someone had covered the mess up with a Varvatos linen blanket.
Friend Of The Show (not Friend Of Howard)
Howard loves only Howard. Even that's not certain.
Can you guess who this is?
I still love the excuse as to why Artie hasn't been invited back as a guest. It made sense when Artie got out of rehab that they said they were concerned for him and didn't want to have him back in the studio as a guest because it might jeopardize his recovery. Alright, we are at the 2 1/2 year mark since he left the show. Artie has co-hosted and hosted his own show for a while now. Can they really still use that excuse?
"What's he saying Robin? Get off of my phone!"
This is true. I think Artie vs. Howard fight years ago years ago just brought this to the forefront. Artie sortof called him out and said the only person he loves is HIS show (so essentially himself).
I think the reason for all his therapy is not to heal himself but to get full concentration by a professional on him. It both validates him and feeds his narcissism.
I think the greatest trick of all is how unattractive Howard realizes he is and the fact that he will never be considered attractive. Looks are maybe the most powerful unspoken trait people have, the halo effect basically bequeaths preferential treatment to attractive people, which are very few. Only 16% of people are attractive. Everyone, and I mean everyone, else is either average looking or worse (68% average + 16% below average).
This is because conventional attractiveness falls under the Bell Curve, where 68% is the clustering towards the mean. That is why you hardly see any beautiful or ugly people, they fall outside of the everyday average lookers. And when you do see them...you remember them.
Being below-average is basically a cancer on a person - and Howard falls under that.
It's my Dru
Look: I totally understand where Howard is coming from.
Sorry to defend him, but haven't you worked with somebody you absolutely loved working with, and then there was a falling out. Or something. And he/she movied on. And you moved on.
It's like a romantic relationship.
Howard has moved on, and he doesn't want to revisit that time in his past.
It's still to raw for him.
It's not raw for us. You want him on the show. I want him on the show.
But Howard isn't ready for it.
Ultimately, time heals all wounds.
It's only been 3 1/2 years. Perhaps after 5 years, Howard will be ready.
But until then, he isn't ready.
And it's totally understandable.
That's President Rutherford B. Hayes, your namesake.
Howard has the eyes of a young Ross Perot.
