EP #1557, Adam Curry, Yuck! Dude, take a vacation! :-(

by quasar-atl / September 21, 2011 10:19 AM PDT

Dear Buzz Gang and Crew,
I am generally quite mellow about most of the guest on "Buzz Out Loud" but this guy "Adam Curry" got me really agitated. Perhaps some people enjoyed horrible sarcasm and negativism but in the context of this podcast, ahhh, EP #1557 was horrible. Adam Curry spoke over everyone in the program, rudely and routinely interrupted the panel's discussions, and was just negative about every topic that was talked about.

Hey dude (Adam Curry), do you actually like anything or anyone?
Just my opinion but don't bring this guy back.

Later People. Sad

Seriously. What's the point of complaining? The show (as we know it) ends tomorrow.

Format For Weekly, Bringing on Guest... Just Not Adam Curry

Hey Zaqzy & ratzerman,
I do get the point in that the daily show is ending. My understanding from all of the hoopla is that they are going to a weekly format with a good amount of guests. It was bad enough listening to Adam Curry for 30 mins. I do not know think that I could stomach an hour or two of this guy. That's all.

I am as well sadden to know that the daily show is going away but I am willing to stick it out to see if the weekly format pans out.

Later People. Wink

Adam Curry reminds me of a man auditioning to have a lead role in the next Grumpy Old Men. The only thing he seemed to like was walking over the Molly and BT oh and of course plugging the heck out of his own shows.

I would not be hurt at all if he never returns to the show unless they have him at the lava chair posing as BT's pet of the week!

Adam just highlights what we already know

While he was more negative than we're all probably used to on BOL (and god help us if both he and Dvorak ever get on an episode of BOL together...geezer-pocalypse) IMHO, part of why we might have thought he was more negative that the show needed was that he kept telling us stuff we didn't want to hear, but we all already know.

Oh, I'm sure Tom is salivating at the thought of capturing the remainder of BOL's audience. I won't be tuning in, though. There's a certain air of superiority I get from TWiT hosts. They're the Macbook users of the podcast world. Plus, I can get tech news anywhere. It was the connection between hosts and audience that made BOL so special. I don't see how that will be able to last with the shift to a weekly format.

And the 404 is just... (rant deleted) ...not my taste. Why they decided to axe BOL and keep 404 is beyond me.

wow that's really interesting...

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
