Hi everyone, I'm new here.
I hate that mustachioed moron and what he's done to C2C. I started to listen 15 years ago when I was very ill and began a series of 18 surgeries, (apropos only because it explains the inability to sleep and desperation for something interesting to take my mind off how I felt) it was a joy.
I was one of those kids who went straight from "In Search Of" and the odd ghost or crypto segment on "That's Incredible" to "Unsolved Mysteries" and "Sightings" I haunted (oh dear) the 133 section of every library I came into contact with, and my friends and I spent hours talking about anything odd. I studied anthropology at uni, since there's nowt as queer as folk, and I revel in interesting.
Art Bell was interesting. His guest were usually interesting, and when they weren't he either wrung interest out of them, or he went to unscreened open lines, which never disappointed. I loved it all. He was smart, he was funny, he was open and thought provoking, and his love for what he values was palpable. He was superb, just superb, and some days, waiting for the show got me through the day. He gave me a lifeline, and helped me more than I can explain. That sounds insane, but anyone who has had a similar situation in life (oh I hope you won't, if you haven't) will get what I mean. The worst thing possible, I believe, is to have nothing to think about.
Then Dexter Monterray entered my life. At first I thought it was okay. Then I began to think differently. Then, he lulled me back in to complacency again, but, my doubts resurfaced. Eventually, I decided that it was either the heavy doses of percs, the progression of demonic infestation, some kind of time slip, or George Noory Sucked.
Percocet is very powerful, causes unconsciousness, nausea and hallucinations, but those are also the side effects of George.
If Captain Howdy had a radio show I guarantee he'd be much smarter and more interesting than George, and probably in Latin.
There can't be somewhere in time that George could be from, in days past there were many more weapons and much less law enforcement, he'd never have made it.
When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth. I looked up improbable in the dictionary and "George Noory is a professional radio talk show host in the United States." was the example given.
The worst of all, for me, is that George actively promotes Not Thinking.
I'm sorry, this was a rant, but it's been building for a while now. I've loved reading this site, and I've laughed until I cried. I found kindred spirits.
Thanks, if you actually made it to the end of this, I owe you a Coke.
