More horrible news coming from the Philippines--progress seems to be non-existent after Haiyan

“My children are decomposing”
This is a quote from Juvelyn Taniega as reported by CNN today.. She is in the Philippines  and because of the slowness of recovery, she is now forced to watch as the bodies of her children decompose in front of  her..

CNN reports it this way:
Juvelyn Taniega tried to keep busy. She collected old dishes and cleaned them, crouching near where her home once stood and the place where she last saw her husband and six children alive. She’s found the bodies of three of her children, but three of them are still missing. In days, she said, no one has come to help. “My children are decomposing,” she said. There are many like her, looking in disbelief over miles of fields full of crushed wood and stone that once stood as houses, wondering if her missing loved ones are buried in them.
I cannot even fathom the heartbreak and emotion of this.. I cannot even understand or grasp the suffering that so many are going through right now.
Whether there is a god or not, there is certainly reason to doubt the kindness of nature.. and God. We have seen suffering on massive scales before. Hell even the dinosaurs had a miserable existence extinguished by a hellstorm from above. Does the earth itself just hate us? 
There has always been hurt, loss, suffering, and sadness. But through it all there has also been a monstrous amount of love and goodness.
The only hope that people in the Philippines have right now is that there will be enough love to overcome the misery..and the decomposing bodies under their feet.

Noory back in the saddle again

It's a strong down amnesia lane, but here you go..
One of the creepiest images I’ve ever seen. It’s George Noory and his producer Tommy at a L.A. ‘parade’ back in the spring of this year. All credit on the images go to BELLGAB.. with the departure of Art Bell and the return of George Noory on Bell’s Sirius XM channel 104, some Noory anger has built up among fans. They have re-examined these images of $nores and big Tommy. The ego .. the hairpiece.. the taped “coast to coast” paper on the side of the car. All tacky, and quite creepy. The only thing missing from these images are strange ‘ice cream man’ sounding tunes, or a foreboding piece of music from a horror movie. George Noory is coming for you. And will steal your soul since he lost his to Premiere executives.

The sexual mindwarp

UK INDEPENDENT article: Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s new film Don Jon is the story of a man whose porn habit has left him unable to relate to real women. He's not the only one 

The article focuses on men.
Here’s a quote:
The question is: does it matter? If we’re all getting our kicks and having a good time, what’s the problem? “It’s a disconnection from what’s really in front of you,” says Gordon-Levitt, who directed, wrote and stars in the film. “Rather than engaging with a unique individual and listening to what the other has to say, right at this moment, we put people in boxes with labels. We objectify each other.”
But statistics also show that 70% of men in America are watching porn regularly (probably about as many as have the internet) and 1 in 3 women are.. 
I am curious if women are having the same re-wiring happening that men seem to be?
The INDEPENDENT article is worth the read. I suppose after you’re done your two minutes on Porn Hub.

The #FreeArtBell roadblock: Art Bell

Just as the online campaign ferociously mounted further to free Art Bell from his non compete clause with Sirius radio, the talk show host stepped up the proverbial mic and asked his fans to "STOP!"

Bell posted this message tonight to the thousands of people tweeting messages to Sirius and posting images with the theme #FreeArtBell on websites and forums:
You all will never know how much I feel for you for what you are doing in trying to support me but I am going to ask you to stop. 
This will only make matters worse. Here is the bottom line, this is a job I took only because of my love of Radio, not for the money, heck 75K is not ever going to make me rich and if Sirius does not want me they sure will not take me because their Web Site is messed up, it will most likely just piss them off. That does not change the love I fell for all of you for trying. 
I still feel I was right in my decision to halt what I felt had no real way forward and would make the same decision again today, I only took that decision after receiving a no to any further remedy. 
Truly I do not understand why they would say no to me wanting a way to stream, then turn around and replace me with Coast which is doing exactly what I wanted to do, maybe they we just pissed. Either way thank you for what you are trying to to, I love you all, but please stop. Art
Whether this means that Bell has thrown in the towel on any further attempt to unbind himself from his clause is unknown at this point..
And what will the reaction be?
Stay tuned to BELLGAB for more..

Something out of nothing, and the Toronto mayor for free: The Freaky Friday update

FRIDAY NOVEMBER 15 2013

My paternal grandmother died in 1997. I dreamed of her often, but she herself was never present in a dream.. only her empty house and vacant garden. A few weeks ago, for the first time, I dreamed of her and she was there--hugging me and telling me she loved me. When I asked her if there was a God, I woke up from the slumber without ever hearing an answer.. Last night, my sister (who also never had a dream she was in) had a night vision of our grandmother. . this time she was at an outdoor cafe in New York City. My sister knew it was her because she saw her red fingernails on a hand clenching a menu.
Maybe this is the Catholic guilt within me, but the first thing I wondered "was she released from Purgatory." Once I snapped from my age old grade school fears of sin, I then wondered.. why now? Why these visions? Why did she hug me and where was she for so much time? And why, why the HELL, did I wake up before hearing an answer as to whether or not there was a God!?

Some things remain a mystery.

On to the news..



Remember yesterday that Philippine official who got fired for saying the death toll from Haiyan would end up being 10,000? How dare he? Such radical claims? We are getting ever so much closer to that number now, with almost 4,000 counted as casualties from the storm at this point.. The number of injured stands at 12,165.. With conditions deteriorating, things may be worse for those who actually lived through the storm. Some places are becoming hell no earth, with people fighting and scrambling to survive..

This is a disaster in terms of both PR and technical terms: Only 27,000 people signed up for health care using HEALTHCARE.GOV..
Save face time: Obama calls in insurance execs..
"Ugly fix" by Doctor Obama..

After civil liberty fears escalate, Seattle Washington decides to 'deactivate' its downtown WIFI network..


I am sorry to readers.. I have had little to no coverage of Toronto Mayor Rob Ford. I should have.. I hope you know of him. If not, read up. What a guy. All 'crack' aside, the crackhead mayor now is facing extra heat for making a lewd comment in public about oral sex..

British media asks: Who will listen to the Americans about human rights?

MOTHER CLUCKER! I really home some more intelligent minds prevail and something like this won't happen.. but as we know, intelligence is seldom found in the brains of decision makers: The United States so allow imports of Chinese chicken.. You know, the product overrun with disease and contamination in China? that stuff..

I know we are being told this, but I frankly don't believe it for a New York minute: China set to abolish labor camps..

China 'relaxes' its famed one child policy--allowing for a second now as long as your first is grown..

Controversy over abortion clinic that allows unborn babies to be shot in heart with poison to terminate pregnancies..

This is a fascinating story from DISCOVER: Do we live in the Matrix? They report in this article that tests could reveal if we actually do live in a simulation of events. But they also ask the question: Would we want to know? And that question ties in with what I asked my grandmother about in the dream she appeared in.. Was there a God? I didn't get an answer--maybe I did, and my brain just registered nothing. Perhaps we don't need to know.. we have time to find out after we die.. or before we are born again..
And as far as an afterlife, just one more: Robert Lanza is a scientist who claims that modern physics proves an afterlife. That's quite a statement to make.. He argues that life creates the universe, not the other way around. He also says space and time don't exist as we think they do.
It's noteworthy to remember this: The big bang did not create something, it created nothing. It created 'space' and 'nothing' where, prior to that, there was presumably an absence of 'nothing.' That concept took me years to somewhat understand, but I always lose an understanding of it every time I begin to grapple with the concept again. Just imagine, the creation of 'nothing.' There are sounds to silence, to maybe there is something in nothing. It's all so confusing.
Is it a matrix?
And are we creating it?
Food for thought on a Friday morning.
Good day.

On to the news..

The #FreeArtBell campaign continues, now with music included

There have been no public developments in the campaign to have Sirius XM void the non compete clause that Art Bell signed with them, but it has not stopped the internet campaign to free Bell from the terms. And now Art Bell himself is joining the call!

For days, Twitter has exploded with the hashtag #FreeArtBell. It's meaning is simple: Campaign to have Sirius XM void the non compete and permit Art Bell to become an independent broadcaster and stream his own program on his own terms through his own website.

There has been speculation as to the exact terms of what the non compete clause says, but no one but a few have actually seen the minutia of the agreement. The HORROR REPORT spoke to an attorney familiar with the situation--the attorney who is advising Art Bell. The lawyer, who the HORROR REPORT will remain nameless at this time, has thirty years of experience and graduated from Notre Dame Law School. He has gained skills in contract law, and did work with employment law throughout his career. The information concerning the non compete and actions taking place are privileged and confidential--as they should be to effort an effective campaign to free Bell from the legal chains that confine him.

Meanwhile, Art Bell himself is working to extend the campaign to free himself from the agreement. Last night, he posted a video on his Facebook page that highlights his brief career and need to #free himself. The video was posted originally on the message board BELLGAB by a user named "SaucyRossy," and features the background music of DANCING QUEEN by ABBA with verbal snippets of why the campaign even began in the first place.

For your enjoyment and continued support of the #FreeArtBell movement, here is the video in full:

Newsthirsty Thursday.. Is Andy Kaufman still alive!?

THURSDAY NOVEMBER 14 2013

A sampling of news from around the world..headlines from the universe.. ideas from the deepest and darkest trenches of your mind... And beyond.


Looting and desperation in the areas hit by superstorm Haiyan..
There are heartbreaking before and after photos that show the extent of damage and destruction that took place as a result of the storm..

This is how bad the chaos in some parts of the Philippines is getting: Starving looters crushed in warehouse stampede, water pipes dug up by people dying of thirst, and aid convoys attacked by gunmen as typhoon rescue operation is struck by chaos

Damage control--but why aren't they just trying to clean up damage!? The Philippines fires official who said that the death toll from Haiyan could be as much as 10,000..

* * *

More than 5,000 flee an erupting volcano in Indonesia!


This is an amazing story being reported this morning .. Andy Kaufman's brother has now stated that his brother is alive.. And even more, there is a woman claiming to be hid daughter! All known information said that Andy Kaufman, the legendary comic, died of lung cancer. The movie MAN NO THE MOON seems to show Kaufman's real battle in the end with the disease.. However, we also know that some have spoken of Kaufman's then obsession that would fake his own death. And now family and purported family are saying he is alive and well.. This is a fascinating story.. If you believe they put a man on the moon..

Four Marines lose their lives during training accident at Camp Pendleton.. Heart truly goes out for them and their service.. *terrible typo corrected, thanks Charles!*

A massive sinkhole has opened in Chicago and is now threatening homes on the South Side..

Home collapses from yet another sinkhole in Florida..


Sex sells. Even health care. You can sell health care two ways, perhaps. On one hand, you can show young professionals without insurance, struggling to get by, working long hours, trying to make ends meet for their families, and battling to stay healthy--Obamacare comes along and now can aid them in their struggles. Or, on the other hand, you can just remind them that they can have more sex. Apparently that is what Colorado Consumer Health Initiative, along with the ProgressNow Colorado Education, are doing in their 'thank Obamacare' campaign.. they decided to go with a new advertising campaign, aimed at 20 somethings, telling them that when you find out your partner has insurance through the affordable health care act, you can bang him/her. A history of inspiring government propaganda now being replaced with sex..

Businesses making big cuts in workers' hours to meet Obamacare mandate..

More secret service prostitution news.. This time an agent left a bullet in a woman's room and was removed from his position after trying to get it back..

Is America the loneliest country in the world?

Is it ethical to dehydrate people in vegetative states to death? What if they knew they were slowly being killed?


YES it's true, ET was originally going to be a horror movie.. On coalSpeaker, I describe how even though it wasn't, the movie scared me anyway as a kid..

#FREEARTBELL campaign explodes; Legal representation advises Art Bell

Art Bell existed at night for decades--and his loyal squadron  of fans now does, too..
The BELLGAB message board was set on proverbial fire last night when a user, named "Surmo," issued a statement on the website concerning Art Bell's legal approach to fighting his non compete with Sirius XM. Surmo wrote, in full:
On behalf of Art Bell, I am issuing a statement to the participants of BellGab, the fans of Art Bell, and even Art's enemies. 
A number of days ago Art and I made contact in regard to his legal issues involving Sirius XM, and now Premiere Radio and Coast to Coast. Art's desire is to return to the air as soon as possible, and he wanted me to investigate his legal options. Art instructed me to look into each and every option, and by that he meant every option, after which he will decide which avenue to select to return to the airways. Every option is on the table, but the preference is for a quick return in a format that Art prefers. 
Art Bell is not a businessman, and he made a mistake trusting those who perhaps should not have been trusted. He is now assembling a team in order to correct that mistake, and will make his decision fairly swiftly. It is gratifying to note the legal hurdles do not look nearly as significant as initially feared, and I will present Art with a number of legal options in the very near future. If that is what is required to get a show on the air, Art will proceed with one of those legal options, though the final decision remains with Art Bell. 
Those of you who have ideas on how to proceed with the ground troops, i.e. BellGab itself, should feel free to send me a personal message with your ideas. Videos, posting at certain sensitive websites, and other such actions, are all encouraged if done in a legal manner. On a more personal note, in doing due diligence I have been allowed to review much of the existing "back room" documentation, and it is everything Art has stated and more. The failures of the Sirius system have been consistent and widespread, with documentation to support this, and which Art approached Sirius with from Day One. Records of this exist. I have instructed Art not to get into too much detail on this until such time as a final legal team and plan of action have been selected. Suffice to say, the other side frequents this website regularly, and it is wise not to show our hand until we decide to play it. 
In conclusion, all legal or other options are now being evaluated. Art will make a decision in the near future on how to proceed.

Immediately, there were joyful reactions--and also some users who doubted the authenticity of the message. The HORROR REPORT has done its due diligence in contacting the user on BELLGAB but at this time have not been given a response. Presumably, everyone needs to sleep at some point... So stay tuned, we will share whatever information we can in addition to the statement that was posted last night.

There were other posts, such as this and other other cryptic messages from a board user Coaster.. the user was alluding to actions he was privately doing all night, calls to Sirius XM, and work on Facebook and Twitter. A message that he wrote directly to Coast host George Noory was equally bizarre:
I cant say what I was trying to sdo, because, I get it. Noory reads this shit 24-7. wanna play chess? What would happen if a nobody whooped your ass today..
Things are getting 'schtrange.'

Meanwhile on Twitter, the hashtag FREEARTBELL is being tweeted in big numbers. The Sirius XM Facebook page is being overwhelmed by comments and users writing messages asking Sirius to unbind Bell from his non-compete clause.. Even Art Bell was grateful and surprised by the outpouring emotion..

There are images being made to support the phrase. And undoubtedly, videos are sure to follow..

Will Sirius XM release Bell? Will the users overwhelm the system?
The pirate flag has been raised...
The battle cry is born: #FREEARTBELL.

For George the Bell tolls: Art Bell taking legal steps to fight non compete clause as he unleashes on Coast host Noory

There may be a non compete to stop Art Bell from broadcasting...

...but it sure isn't stopping him from speaking his true feelings on George Noory..
Art Bell spoke to Michael Vandeven on GABCAST last night, and now today is following up with some harder core comments regarding his departure from Sirius XM and George Noory..

Yes, it is not a fight I want, but it is one I WILL have.
I have asked to be released from the NC and got a no first time around, now I have asked again and taken steps with Legal help. We shall see what develops. As for thinking George is a nice guy, those days are long gone. 
He should feel the sharp knife of hypocrisy stab him every night when he "thanks me", I told him what a piece of crap he was after he put Oates on in language that would make most Sirius/XM Hosts blush, still he does it either because he has been told to do it or he really woves me, I prefer the former. 
Art
 The HORROR REPORT has previously reported on the David Oates controversy. Oates said some less than kind comments about Bell when  the talk show host was going through personal crises. Noory had Oates as a guest in September--right before Bell's initial venture onto Sirius XM.

As we know now, the brief stint on Sirius XM ended with a bang--Bell departed with the typical fanfare that accompanies his actions. Immediately after Sirius ignored Bell's request to stream his program on ArtBell.com, they replaced his show with none other than Coast to Coast AM with George Noory. Noory confirmed on Bellgab that negotiations were taking place presumably while Bell was still hosting DARK MATTER on Sirius XM! 


These new comments tonight seem to signify an angrier Bell, and perhaps one who is more apt to fight his non compete than the resigned Bell that existed only days ago. One must assume that the airing of grievances is not over--and that the airing of Coast to Coast AM in the Indie 104 time slot Bell occupied only a week ago is a call to arms for the talk show host and his squadron of fans.  Already today, Twitter trends included #FreeArtBell and message boarders from bellgab.com and other sites suggested that they were calling and emailing Sirius XM in protest, demanding that Bell be released from his non compete clause.


Some have suggested that the clause may have already been nullified by Sirius itself! 
Bell confirmed that he received information in writing from Sirius XM indicating that their online streaming reach was worldwide. Bell said he did not investigate that claim fully and only came to learn after beginning DARK MATTER than Sirius' ability to faithfully stream shows was less than perfect, and often meager attempts with time outs and error messages.

Even further, with Bell stating that his words to Noory would make other Sirius hosts blush, you'd wonder how brutal the words may have been. Howard Stern blushing at Art Bell's insults? Hopefully Asia was put to bed before Art unleashed!

The fight appears to be just beginning. 
Will Art Bell win.. or will #FreeArtBell be a grasp for straws?
Time will tell..
"Somewhere in time..."

Hope in the high desert

BELLGAB creator Michael Vandeven got an exclusive tonight on his weekly 'Gabcast' podcast: Art Bell himself called in to speak candidly about his rapid departure from Sirius Xm..

There will no doubt be an audio link at some point this evening, but until then here are some points mentioned:


  • Bell Said that he is exploring his legal options, attempting to discern whether his noncompete clause only would prevent him from competing directly in the timeslot he formerly was in, and if it would permit him to stream his own program through Art Bell.com
  • Art Bell said he is also weighing his options concerning fighting the noncompete--But he did say that the terms of the noncompete clause would keep him from terrestrial radio, Internet radio, and podcasting..



  • Bell Said that he listened to the first few minutes of Coast to Coast a.m. with George Noory last night, and laughed when he heard Noory wonder aloud if rain in Hawaii came from the typhoon in the Philippines



  • Bill did not go into specifics but alluded to some behind the scenes workings that made him suspicious, especially the fact that Sirius now has coast to coast on his timeslot--He wondered how long the talks for going on between Premiere radio and Sirius XM..



  • Bell said that initially, he felt George Noory was a 'nice guy.' Now he has changed his opinion in light of recent developments..



  • On the big picture of radio, Art Bell concluded that terrestrial radio does not have much time and Internet podcasting is here to stay, and the way of life for the future.. He said that he has a desire to put on a good show, and truly wants to be able to stream his own program through his own website on his terms.
  • Art Bell said that his Halloween program was very weak, and concluded that many of the people who were listening had their 30 day subscriptions for free expire and stopped listening, which led him to believe that that is why he had a smaller call volume by October 31



  • Art Bell said that he felt George Knapp was put into a strange position, on one hand hosting Coast to Coast AM occasionally, and on the other hand reporting for NEWS 8 and doing an interview of his friend, Bell..

    There is much more, it was a wide-ranging interview, and hats off to Vandeven for asking some pointed questions, and probing deep behind the scenes of Art Bell's mind..

    Stay tuned. Audio sure to come..

    Art Bell breaks silence on Noory retuning to Sirius XM

    First of all my sincere congrats to Premiere Radio, they made the right move. Business is War
    and I would have done the same exact thing, and did in my day.
    Second, given the same circumstances I would make the same decision again today about Dark
    Matter. There is much you do not know and I will not talk about because it was given in confidence
    and I am kind of old school so I will not talk about those things even though it would help you to
    understand my decision.
    Third, I would love it if Sirius/XM would waive my NC but they said no and even though I could run
    out and get a Lawyer and perhaps win back my freedom I will most likely not do that. If I were ten
    Years younger it might be a different story, I will say this, It seems crazy as hell to me that we offered
    exactly what Premiere ended up taking. Now Sirius/XM has a show that will be mostly commercials and
    seems much less a good fit than Dark Matter with a Host who thinks a Typhoon in Vietnam causes rain
    in Hawaii. (Last night's show, first hour)
    Fourth and finally I would like to say sorry to the people who did come over either by Radio or the less
    than stellar streaming, trust me I understand your anger, I only wish you had enough information to
    understand my decision.

    It would certainly appear with this post, and the same post on Facebook, that the long career of Art Bell may in fact be over..

    He's not ten years younger..

    And he appears resigned to his non compete clause...

    Noory said Bell was 'winding down.' Little did anyone know that Noory was helping pull a string to unwind the career of the man who gave him his show so long ago..

    A sampling of news from around the world.. For better or worse (You know what it normally is)



    For those who did not listen last night, it was an amazing and important Ground Zero with Clyde Lewis, titled "Camp for the useless Eaters" .. I really recommend you give it a listen..


    I was moved to true emotion and sadness this morning looking at some images from the Philippines. I saw a photo, which I will not share due to the graphic nature, of a father holding his toddler in his arms.. he was weeping. She was dead.. he was taking her to the morgue. She was the victim of this tremendous disaster that will be the storm for the record books.. I cannot fathom the thoughts of what happened here.. I also cannot explain how angry I am at American media for their selfish attitude regarding news. They cover politics as though it matters.. they feed us trivial garbage, a steady diet of nonsense that spews from their talking head mouths. I dislike them not for who they are, but for who they pretend they are.. We don't get news. Thank God for the Internet. I am going to post some links at the bottom of this update that, if you want help, you can click on and send whatever..

    The situation in the Philippines has been officially designated a 'calamity' by the government there..

    Bodies in the Philippines are being piled high in the streets.. I have a big fear that 10,000 dead is an understatement.. I really fear this..
    Anger is rising..
    Planes that are carrying important aid are grounded because they are TOO BIG to land at the disaster zone's airport..
    Photos of the wrath..
    Even more disaster: Earthquake rattles the area hit by superstorm Haiyan..
    There are also warnings coming that mudslides may be the next disaster that will unfold for this poor people..

    Once again: I was amazed this morning: Tens of thousands potentially dead in the Philippines, China lost a lot of farms from the same storm, another storm kills hundreds in Somalia.. and the top story on the big three network morning news shows? The 'cold' in the United States and the coating of snow that some people got--a coating! It's November. It gets cold. And it snows. Sometimes there's cold November rain, so say the Guns N Roses. Sometimes snow. Either way, there was no coverage of the unfolding disaster in other nations. But other nations know what goes on in America--we just don't know what goes on there.. Sickening, news media..sickening.

    * * * *
    Sea turtles dying in Central America..

    Record number of dolphins dying along the East Coast.. I have not seen any expert tie this in the with Gulf oil disaster from a few years ago.. Could this be the effects along the Atlantic coastline finally being felt?

    This is the new America: Street lights shine in the night--and also watch your every move and listen to your every word..

    A new look inside chicken McNuggets by a professor of medicine Richard deShazo. He described the 'food' as edible super glue, confirming may reports that the processed pieces of 'meatlike' substance is more cartilage, skeletal muscle, intestinal tissue, organ tissue, fat, blood vessels, and bone fragments than meat. And if you really want to see inside the food you're eating, here's some images and for $30 bucks, you can purchase the full medical study..

    Scientists puzzled by lack of sunspots..

    Philadelphia police investigate Instagram account that labels crime witnesses as rats..

    Painful protest: Artist Pyotr Pavlensky nails his testicles to Red Square!


    A Welsh family is sick of living on Butt Hole Road. They are attempting to rename it Button Hole Road.
    I myself like the Butt Hole part, maybe just rename if "Circle."

    A sampling of news from around the world.. For better or worse (You know what it normally is)

    The late shift wars, radio version

    And you thought the Leno vs Letterman duel in the 1990s was exciting!

    On October 31, George Noory, using the popular message board BELLGAB.COM, changed his avatar to a crown.. 
    People thought he was proclaiming himself the king of paranormal radio. Instead, it may have been a hidden message that, only last night, was revealed to the world..

    When Art Bell quit DARK MATTER on Sirius XM 104, he said it was because of the timeouts and other user related problems. A week ago, he even proposed a solution: Stream through Artbell.com, become an independent broadcaster, take no salary from Sirius, but still be exclusive to them.. Though he, his producer Paul Bowman, and webmaster Keith Rowland, all said that Sirius was considering the deal, the suits in D.C. never responded to the request.

    Last night, the first night that Art Bell's DARK MATTER had officially ended, Sirius XM replaced his program with Coast to Coast AM with George Noory.

    As expected, message boards across the internet woke up with anger and confusion. Was this the hidden back story that Art Bell alluded to? For days now, he wrote cryptic statements on BELLGAB, wondering aloud if 'big money' had something to do with 'something' going on behind the scenes.

    The ink on his deal with Sirius had never even dried before, apparently, some form of negotiation started to occur with Premiere Radio..

    George Noory himself even took to BELLGAB last night to defend himself--some of the messages he was publicly receiving consisted of unabashed rage and anger. Noory said, in full:
    Here you go folks. This is WHAT happened. As many of you know, we were on XM for years . The end of OCT that channel went away. We knew this was coming for months prior. WE began negotiations to get Sirius/XM to BUY the rights to air my show. When Art went on Sirius those negotiations continued. We didn't know what channel we'd be on, but I wanted to flow after Art's Dark Matter .It would have been a strong channel. He up and RESIGNED. We then got the offer we were waiting for and had two options for channels 104 and a truckers channel. We selected 104. We are NOT in Art's original 7pm-10pm PT slot. we start at 10PM PT. He RESIGNED. We never expected that...and frankly he made a mistake , I believe. Don't blame us for getting BACK on a satellite network we were ON in the past.
    What is interesting about Noory's statement is the time problem. Art Bell's original show was going to air from 7pm PDT to 10pm PDT, but he expanded it to four hours .. Additionally, the HORROR REPORT spoke to Art Bell in August, before his show began to air on Sirius, and he explained that he has the entire night and could, if he wanted to, expand the show to a full eight hours. The HORROR REPORT asked him, if there was a breaking news event, could he extend the program if he desired to cover it..

    The fact that Sirius was negotiating with Noory, planning on taking away his hours of repeat (or potential live shows) and replace it with Coast to Coast AM, is beyond interesting. It may be paranormal radio treason!

    It could explain some of the back story as to why Bell suddenly vanished from extraterrestrial radio.

    In the 1990s, there were rumors and tales that Jay Leno would hide in closets to hear executive meetings on the TONIGHT SHOW and David Letterman's fate.  In the 2000teens we have a whole new late night war, this one on radio...

    How to properly quit Sirius XM radio: Don't sign up at all..

    Art Bell was taken off INDIE 104. All of his shows for download have been deleted... with it all being over, I decided to end my Sirius XM Service.

    If only it was just that easy..


    First off.. I promised myself years ago to never sign up for satellite radio--then Art decided to host and I broke my terrestrial radio self-commandment.

    After spending over a half hour on the phone, fighting about hidden fees and little early cancellation costs, I will command myself again: NEVER SIGN UP FOR PAY RADIO. I get that companies want to make money.. and I understand I am canceling before my 'one year of service.' And now they know that they have one of the worst companies ever--at least in terms of canceling service--that I have ever dealt with...

    Here is the kicker that put me over the edge.. I was asked for an explanation on why I was quitting. I explained the obvious, very calm... The nice woman from somewhere on this planet asked if she wanted me to find shows similar to Dark Matter if it would help keep my service. I said sure, be my guest.

    Six minutes later she came back and asked if I listen to music--obviously her search ended up in a Black Hole.   She put me on hold again.. when she came back, she said she wanted me to understand that me quitting is not her company's fault, but that is was "Clyde Lewis' own decision to end Ground Zero."
    I was floored.

    First off, I explained, Clyde Lewis didn't host DARK MATTER, and I further explained that there was a separate issue which forced Ground Zero off of satellite radio .. She was legitimately confused as to what I was saying.  I mean, if you're going to spout Jess-written talking points, at least don't get them confused with each other.
    This also tells me some folks have been ending their service since Clyde Lewis is gone, too...

    At a certain point, after my early fees and fees and fees and hidden fees and pretend costs, I ended up with $111.11 back--ironic since it was 11/11 that Art's shows had all been taken off of Sirius. BUT THEN she told me an extra $12 had to come off for some other reason.... I didn't even fight at this point. I just wanted my money back.. and they have it, and I want it.

    And finally.. the final bombed dropped when I ended the call. She said, "thank you, and you should see your money in 10 to 15 business days."
    WHAT!?
    Click. On her end.
    I better get this money back.
    I really better..

    VETERANS DAY morning headlines

    MONDAY NOVEMBER 11 2013

    The photo pictured here is an AP image from Jim Weber of 83-year-old Jim Brown, a veteran who served in both Vietnam and Korea.. That is what today means: Pride, honor, and service..

    In 1919, Woodrow Wilson proclaimed today Armistice Day. After a few more 'wars to end all wars,' Congress changed Armistice to Veterans Day in 1954.. Since then, every November 11, we have stopped to memorialize veterans who are still living..

    There is also some confusion, though, as many today have vigils and ceremonies for the dead .. however today is the day to thank and honor the living.
    Thank you Veterans for service.. thank you for your sacrifice.. There is so much gratitude owed to you, it can never be completely fulfilled. The world is a better place because of your actions, and the United States is a better nation because of your honor..

    The Veterans Day (and more) news roundup is as follows..


    Veterans Day: Honor

    On this Veterans Day, the New York TIMES examines those who were discharged “under conditions other than honorable” and so do not qualify as veterans under federal law.

    Sexual assaults in the military up 48%..


    The Philippines turns into hell on earth.. Some reports have said that the survivors of Haiyan have been said to be walking like zombies across the destroyed landscape, in search of food.. even more, food water, and medical supplies are dangerously short.


    Reports claim that the destruction in the Philippines from Haiyan is 'absolute bedlam'.. Red Cross workers are describing the horrendous scene on the ground that they are seeing.. Hundreds of thousands of people are displaced and one town of 40,000 people is called Guiuan is said to be largely destroyed.. Even more alarming, the BBC reports that the city of Baco n the Oriental Mindoro province is 80% under water.. that town has 35,000 people in it. I believe with numbers as harrowing as that, the death toll may rise substantially higher than 10,000..
    We do know this: Body bags being rushed in.

    There are some attempts for rescue victims from the storm still taking place.. Fear and starvation in the Philippines as food mobs are already attacking aid trucks..

    The troubling situation with Haiyan is not over. There is Midweek trouble brewing for the Philppines as a new tropical system gets organized..

    An expert debunks YouTube video that purports a microwave beam made Haiyan stronger.. It was none other than "Dutch Sinse" .. and he took to Facebook to defend his accusation of a manmade weather system..
    Here is the Dutchsinse video in question..

    Remember to keep nothing unholy or holy on the non Sabbath day: Mega churches popping up throughout the nation to celebrate nothing? "Atheist mega churches" all over..

    292 PAGES TOO MUCH: ART BELL SHOWS HIS FRUSTRATION WITH SIRIUS XM EXECS ON BELLGAB

    Ever since Art Bell quit DARK MATTER on Sirius XM, fans on Bellgab.com have taken to the popular message board to express their frustration with the sudden move.. 

    Tonight, Bell expressed some frustration back..

    After hundreds of pages of the thread, the now former radio show host wrote this in a response to someone asking him for information:
    Thanks for asking, I am fine. Nothing much to say that I have not already said but good evening! However I will repeat, people here have no idea the intense talks that were going on from about 3 days after the show started about the stream drops, I do understand however how it seemed abrupt to the listener. Also, the deal we tried to make on Wed, two days after the show stopped was a very good one and after saying they took it very seriously they stopped communicating. I will say again, I think something else is going on. For those above who listened and did not like the show anyway, it should not even be a issue worth talking about unless you just like seeing a message from yourself.
    A few more posts later, Bell unleashed regarding Sirius XM:
    People keep saying "why don't you try and work it out with Sirius/XM" We have been trying to do that from three days after the show started, we had confrence call after confrence call with them trying to get it worked out, there was a lot of talk but no fix. We told them the base was leaving and this would effect our partnership if something was not done. At about the six Week mark after most who had tried the free 30 day trial had given up and left MAINLY because of the drop outs we asked for a remedy as in a Year of streaming OR until the problem was fixed, it ended when they said NO. 48 Hours after that we made a offer to work with no pay and let Sirius/XM have the show exclusivly while we streamed from the Web Site, they said they would consider that and have not responded to phone calls, email's or texting since. How is that NOT working with them?
    The HORROR REPORT has been told that the 'typical' means of communication have taken place .. Camp Bell proposed the idea last week of broadcasting DARK MATTER live on ArtBell.com, while Sirius would have maintained exclusive rights to the program.. Bell and others, including his producer and friend Paul Bowman, said that Sirius XM were considering the offer as recently as last Wednesday..
    While there has been no official response from the satellite radio company, they also took mentions of Bell off of their website and removed his program from this upcoming weekly lineup..

    There seemed to be a much more tense and intense Bell on his posts tonight.. For example, he said this on Sirius and his relationship --obviously now over--with the network:
    I am not crazy about the way some things have been handled, they canned Paul without so much as a Human voice doing the job and he had been trying to get a handle on the streaming mess every day. Now they take the tactic of simply not responding in any way to ALL forms of communication the modern World has. At least I spoke to them like people in a normal business relationship. I am telling you there is something else in the works.
    Bell continued in further posts trying to provoke users to express anger and questions at Sirius XM instead of him..  The bizarre situation even has the likes of Richard C. Hoagland commenting on the entire affair..

    As of Sunday night, the DARK MATTER program remains, overall, a mystery.. Clear reading of tea leaves may suggest that Bell no longer has a home on Sirius XM, but without a definite answer being given to the host of the program, Producer Bowman, or webmaster Keith Rowland, time will tell--and tell soon. Monday night at 10pm EDT.. will DARK MATTER air, or will Jay Thomas be repeated?

    Answers soon.. the drama will soon have an answer..
