Arites back

Howard kicked off the show noting that Artie was back in the studio, proving Fred – who’d speculated that Artie might only return as a guest – wrong. Fred welcomed Artie back: “I’m happy for Artie. I hope he’s doing well.” Artie confessed: “Listen, I had what you might call a mini-nervous breakdown…I was in therapy doing well and I had a pattern of repeating mistakes in my life and that’s something my father had.”
Artie added that the charity gig for a pralyzed guy in a wheel chair compounded his anxiety about aging: “I hadn’t really been next to [a paraplegic] since my old man and it affected me.” Artie said didn’t go to therapy when he returned home: “I made myself physically ill. I was dry-heaving. I was sweating.” His girlfriend cared for him while he convalesced: “I love my girlfriend. I’m in love.”
Artie said he’d canceled most of his gigs after the end of the year: “2010 I will not be on the road…this schedule and the road is bad. And this is more important – of course.” He might even do a detox diet: “Stacy wants me to do the Robin thing…I just like cheeseburgers so much. I don’t know if I can be a part of it.” Artie claimed he was glad he didn’t turn back to heroin: “I was close to going to the bad shit because I just wanted anything to feel better…you start to question everything in your life.”

F the SFN. It’s a horrid site, that barely works, with a bunch of no life having guys all sucking at the tit of an old man that clearly lives in a bubble now. Howard has completely made the transformation into Hampton’s Howie.

Stern used to be my favorite show, but now it truly is awful. I’m just glad I wasn’t dumb enough to pay for satellite radio and instead downloaded the episodes for free without commercials and put them on my iPod with no limitation as to where I can listen. No need for extra equipment. MP3 player plus my car, and home theater system which both have aux input jacks, or just headphones. All free and way better than paying and listening to Howie talk about the fucking Bachelor, American Idol, or Beth on an over-priced piece of shit “radio” that would break after six months.

SFN sucks, Mutt is a leech and a nobody, Joey Boots is a fat jobless fake-fag for cash. All of these nobodies need to be on suicide watch when old daddy money banks retires in two years.
