Michael Moore visits The Howard Stern Show

Michael Moore stopped by to promote his new film, Capitalism: A Love Story, and explained the security detail he brought with him by citing some peoples reaction to his infamous “we live in fictitious times” Oscar acceptance speech: “The next day our home was vandalized…people posted signs saying move to Canada on our trees.” Michael said he has a galvanizing effect on people (“When they see me on the street, they go crazy.”), citing one incident in which a crazed man tried to scald him with hot coffee.

Michael blamed incendiary right wing talk show hosts for inciting such behavior because they tell people his films are filled with lies without ever actually identifying any of those lies. Michael even challenged anyone to find a factual error in his movies: “The opinions in my films are mine…but the facts are facts. I offered $10,000 to anyone who can prove there is a factual lie in one of my movies.” Michael explained his new film: “The economy has become Amway. Only a few people can sit atop the pyramid.” Michael on Obama: “Right now, for me, the jury is out. He’s only been in there 8 or 9 months. He inherited a catastrophe.” Michael on his home life: “I’m actually a very conservative person. I’ve been with the same woman for 30 years. We don’t let our daughter have a TV in her bedroom.”

Rob and Sheri Zombie talk Halloween II with Howard Stern

Rob Zombie is considered a friend of The Howard Stern Show and recorded the Howard Stern Show theme song The Great American Nightmare.

Halloween II opens in theatres on Friday, August 28th.

After the break Jon brought up Rob and Sheri Zombie. Gary said that Howard bringing up what he said about them was very strange. He said Howard made it seem like a bigger deal out of it than it was. He said that Rob has this image of being this horror guy and he’s really not that kind of guy. He said they’re very nice people and much more normal than they appear.

Jon asked how they thought Sheri looked. Will said she might be one of the hottest chicks they’ve ever had in there. Jon asked if they think they’ll ever have kids. Gary said he thinks it was a no based on the way they were talking about it today.

Jon brought up how they were talking about the neighbors bothering them when they moved in. they put up fences and stuff to keep people from doing that. Gary said that’s a normal thing when you move into a neighborhood though so it’s not that surprising.

Jon talked about the Wendy the Retard game they played. Gary said he thought it worked but Will said Howard didn’t seem to be too happy with it.

Jon took a call from a guy who said today’s show was great. He asked if ”Herp” was still there. Gary and Jon said that they didn’t know who he was talking about. They didn’t want to refer to Benjy. Benjy didn’t say a word.

Another caller goofed on Gary about fucking up the question with AJ today. He had a bad phone connection so they had to let him go.

Another guy asked Gary if he’s going to have to wear booties to Howard’s house. Gary said he’s not sure what he’s going to do but he’ll probably carry around a pair of socks so he can keep his feet covered up. Will said he should wear those things that Jackie used to wear on his fingers. Gary said those were Finger Cots.

Another caller said that he knows where Rob Zombie lives and said that he can imagine why people would treat them strange because it is a small town. He lives just a couple of miles from them. He said he knows some of the people there and they haven’t had issues with them. He said that their gates are quite large though.

Jon took another call from a guy who asked why they don’t have Don Kirshner on the show. Gary said they had him on the show years ago. He said that he’s a really nice guy but he doesn’t give any insight into anyone if you ask him about them.

Gary said that they have a few entries for that contest they’re running. They only have a few people. Gary said that they have a guy who is a 15 time motocross champion who is right up there too. No one had anything to say about that.

Another caller asked Gary about Tabitha Stevens eating his toenail when he had the foot fungus. Gary said he didn’t have it at the time but the caller thought he did. Gary said that’s probably not the worst thing Tabitha has eaten.

Quentin Tarantino in Studio

Quentin Tarantino was in the Howard Stern Show studios on Monday morning talking about his new film Inglourious Basterds starring Brad Pitt.  Quentin Tarantino talked to Howard Stern and the cast at Sirius studios about landing Brad Pitt for the leading role, dating in Hollywood and the rumors that Quentin Tarantino’s mom won’t stop spreading about his IQ.

Quentin Tarantino said that he never considered anyone but Brad Pitt for the role of the leader of the Jewish-American Nazi-hunters in Inglourious Basterds.  Tarantino also said that if Pitt hadn’t taken the part, he had no back up plan to cast another actor.  “It would have been a totally different part if I hadn’t gotten him.”  Lucky for Quentin Tarantino, Brad Pitt was more than game for the role.  Tarantino says he sealed the deal to cast Brad Pitt in Inglourious Basterds at Pitt’s home in France while Angelina Jolie was still in a French hospital recovering from after giving birth to twins.

In classic Howard Stern style, the King of All Media also grilled Tarantino about his previous romantic entanglements.  Although Tarantino admitted to “banging” Margaret Cho and “making out” with Kathy Griffin, the Oscar-winning screenwriter of Pulp Fiction clammed up when Howard Stern tried to gather details on his rumored relationship with Kill Bill star Uma Thurman.  Tarantino held firm on his refusal to discuss his relationship history with the woman many consider to be his “muse,” but listeners could practically hear Tarantino turning red when Howard Stern dug for details.

Howard Stern also took a few moments to investigate the rumor that Quentin Tarantino has an IQ of 160.  Quentin Tarantino stated that he had “no idea” if that was true and claims that it’s a rumor spread by his doting mother when his career first got off the ground.  It seems even little boys that make movies about scalping Nazis and cutting off the ears of police officers can still pass as mommy’s little angel.
