i dont know what you think is weird about opies voice. i always thought he sounded like a normal guy thats a reason i like them and not fake voice people like bubba and countless others.
do you even listen to Imus? Yeah I know his show isnt a comedy show but Stern haters hate him because Stern does. Howard basically shite on Imus and then became the exact character he portrays him to be in his movie Private Parts. What he made the actor playing Imus do to him in the movie is what he actually did to Opie & Anthony in real life.
They play clips from Imus' show when he messes with them and its actually funny. I was an Imus hater too back in the day but just because Stern made fun of him. And they have been friends with him for a while. Back in the 90s, Anthony used to tool on Howard and Imus doing their voices and completely trashing them. Guess which one took the joke and which one couldnt take the joke? Its not because they both dont like Stern.... thats just also something that they can talk about.
And I cant believe you used the Stern clones line. STERN CLONES!! That is straight out of Howard's mouth. Man you really are one of those Stern zombies that thinks he invented everything including talking on the radio about "RACY" subjects. If thats ripping off someone than it definitely goes back before Stern.
Thats like saying L-3 rips off Lockheed Martin because they are both in the defense contractor business but Lockheed Martin was doing it first. Howard is not the only one in the world allowed to do (gay term coming up).... shock jock radio.
once again i probably made an ass out of myself for defending everything about O&A.
I didn't think I said anything to bad. I used the phrase Stern Clone because it's true. There is a difference between talking about racy things, and the way the material is presented. DLR spoke about racy things too, but he's no where in the same league as Howard and O&A. In that sense, O&A have bit off of the Stern formula, and you know, you can't deny it. They were big fans of the show back in the day, and I'm positive it was a great influence to them. Am I saying it's a rip off? No, but Stern did pave a way for how many radio shows flow.
As for being a "Stern Zombie" (which is ironically probably straight from O&A's mouth) if that were true, I'd have Siruis, and I don't. Speaking of which, that comment is coming from someone who claims to be in an army!
Anyway, I understand your frustration. I get bent out of shape when people trash Nintendo, so you always want to defend what you love. I don't hate O&A, heck, maybe I'll end up liking them. I'm just stating how I feel about them for now, that's all.
