I'm worried about Art Bell

    This is too soon. I predict he'll be happy he didn't sell his Nevada ranch. Is she even 18?

    During the first hour, Art shared the story of how he met, fell in love with, and married a very special Filipino woman, Airyn Ruiz. Art also announced that he will be moving to the Philippines on April 29th to be with Airyn, but will continue doing weekend Coast programs from that location.

    yeah, I saw that. Skimpy on the details. Did you happen to catch the show?

    She looks so young! Maybe he's having a crisis response or something.

    Talk-radio host who abandoned liberal/libertarian political talk to focus on fringe/conspiracy topics. Entertaining, but don't look to gather lots of verifiable, usable facts from any particular show. Not much different from Rush, except that Rush pretends to be mainstream and factual, while being further to the right and even less factual than Pat Robertson (if that is possible). Rush has the "strawman" technique honed to perfection. Nobody is better at it.

    Like Turbo stated his main focus is finge topics; UFOs, Bigfoot, Ghosts, Conspiracy Theories, ect. His show is best considered as entertainment but he does occasionally have interesting credible guests on the topics of science and technology.

    I caught a bit of the beginning. He says that he went on vacation and met her while there. She was about to head off to the middle of nowhere to teach when she met Art and fell in love.

    sure sure sure... yadda yadda yadda.... :biggrin:

    Holy bejeezus, didn't his wife die like last week??? This guy is getting a little bit eccentric.

    I remember MIH or Moonbear or Evo said that girls would line up for him, because of his intelligence, maturity and very sexy voice.

    Either he:
    -felt sorry for her poor family
    -accidently knocked her up (she seduced him)
    -needs a housecleaner, mating partner, cook combi

    or all of the above

    I heard him talking about it briefly from last night. He said he is packing up two of the cats and taking them to Manila with him, and Clear Channel is very supportive of him doing the broadcast from the Phillipines.

    He said that a lot of people were writing in expressing their shock over this turn of events and he said that it is his nature to do impulsive things like this. This is just too weird, though. It really gives me an uneasy feeling.

    I think Pit might be right, as far as him looking for a housekeeper, companion, and cook, but more importantly I think, a nurse. I seem to remember that he gets pretty incapacitated with back problems and he needs someone to look after him during these times. I'm sure his back problems aren't getting any better as he gets older.

    I think he's :yuck: .

    Smart people are fun to talk to, but not always fun to "play" with.

    After reading more about it, it almost sounds like he and his friend had a hard time picking up girls and just flew to the Philipines to "buy" a wife.

    I understand life hasn't been easy for him in the past year, but that's no excuse for throwing rational thought out of the door.

    Wasn't me, either. And I don't think Moonie would even know who Art Bell is.

    I knew it!!! :biggrin:

    Really, I do have a radio voice kind of like Bell's. That was my other most likely career option - voice work of some kind. Even called a horse race [trials] at Hollywood Park once, just for fun. My buddy was the track announcer.
