I considered buying a separate radio, till I realized you have to have a separate subscription plan for it.

Absolutely ridiculous that you need to pay for a new subscription for every single radio you own. Not going to happen.

Of course, I COULD add the online stream for 3.99 a month.

I may consider it. Maybe.



here's the big dirty sirius joke.
they will basically give it away if you hold out long enough.
truth be told i really enjoy the programming on sirius, which i have in both of my cars.
but as a commercial, money making company they are a collossal cluster fuck of a failure.
this fact manifests itself in a variety of ways, but none more than the fact that, like a dude selling you soapstone chess sets or sex with his sister in tijuana, no price is real - whatever they ask for is just a starting point. when i bought a new car recently and called them to turn on the service after the 90 days free ran out, they started at whatever the fuck they list as a price on their website - 20 a month maybe? and by the time i was done telling the guy i really didn't want it, they had given me a year for like 80 something bucks with the internet thrown in and, as if that wasn't enough, a credit on my other car and a home radio that i bought for my father some years back. they lowered the price on those two accounts retroactively and ended up owing me money because they had been prepaid.
i guess they can only sell advertising and sponsorships based on how many subscribers they have so they just don't care how much they get.

its bizarre - the product is really pretty good. good talk radio and streaming of tv news networks. a pretty wide variety of theme radio stations for music. patti smith live on New Year's Eve. sports. opera. the dead. a wfmu clone station. kiddie shit for if you've got your little fuckwads in the car and they really need a laurie berkner fix. howard stern. and now, dark matter, to go with the many many other shows and hosts that nobody cares about or listens to.

all for, basically, whatever you offer them.

i paid the $3.50 a month.

I figure it's worth it to listen at work.

The shady thing though, is that because i had paid up my Sirius for 3 years, to add internet listening they made me add it for the length of my contract.

So there went 85 bucks. haha

I just can't get past the awful sound quality Sirius delivers. I guess if all I listened to was talk radio, it'd be worth a few bucks a month even if I long ago got tired of Howard Stern, but when I had the 90 day trail in my new car last year, the novelty of several artist-themed stations that played a ton of bootlegs was quickly offset by the compressed, crummy sound.

dave told an interesting story tonight. he was with a girl that was also hooking up with alex rodriguez. arod apparently gets off while watching this girl with other guys....so she skyped arod while she was giving dave a blow job and arod was masturbating during the blow job. arod was also married at the time. :noclue:

Hilarious story.

It sucks that he drops this right before taking a 2 month break from the show. :lol:

I don't think a show has ever been edited.

They really do have a "no one listens to this" attitude about it.

Why is Dark Matter taking a two month hiatus? Did Dave mention anything about Vegas?

dave has to go to ny for the inkmaster finale and i guess he is staying there for a couple of months. he didn't really say why exactly.

all he said about the shows was that they got better each night.

"Better" meaning "Perry finally practiced, onstage, in front of a bunch of paying fans"

Dave's little fan club is a weird group.

Check out this chick: she has a tattoo of Todd Newman! Who the hell gets a tattoo of the friend of a C list celebrity? This is more ridiculous than the Paris Hilton "being famous for being famous" phenomenon.

I don't see the big deal. He's the cohost on one of her favorite radio shows. There's worse faces she could put on her.

:noclue: If you wanted to tattoo Chaney's face on you I wouldn't say anything.

Do what makes you happy.
