    I didn't listen to today's show, but noticed Howard complaining about lack of screeners.

    Is it because of J.J. Abrams?

    Why JJ? Did Howard piss him off?

    ah, although JJ's been on geektime recently, so who knows. Someone could have very easily photoshopped that screen.

    Howard admitted it was his at the time. Today he was trying to pretend it never happened.

    Remember the horrors he went through last time he had to see a movie with the unwashed masses?

    The studio decides who gets the screeners, not JJ.

    When he had millions of listeners, it made sense for studios to give him screeners. Now what's the point with 42 people listening, none of whom will see the movie anyway no matter how much he talks it up.

    Howard has a multiplex off the lobby of his high rise apt. I guess pushing those elevator buttons is too much work...or does he hire someone to push those buttons?


    Perks is one of the better flicks I've seen recently

    this

    The last ratings released for his Sirius show indicated that there were just over a million listeners during a week, not each show.

    He won't agree to the rules for handling them, and his endorsement isn't worth much.
