Art's DST rants

Post by MeesterCranky » 03-08-2014 04:03 PM

been looking everywhere for sound files of Art having one of his hilarious anti-Daylight Savings Time rants to no avail... anyone know where one might be?

You would think it would be on youtube but I can't turn up anything either. I guess one way would be to try and find old shows happening on the right date since he would basically talk about it every show for a week leading up to it, having to go reset his hundreds of clocks etc ... :)

yeah I've looked, got a lot of shows but trying to find one where he did this is guessing game. Looked up dates DST occurred and don't seem to have any that fall on those dates.

I have put up all the shows I have from those dates here https://mega.co.nz/#F!4QkDzLSL!fpsEiERaVj0OY7sLH6VwzQ it is still uploading, so give it 10 mins.

I don't have time to listen through it but if someone finds me a timecode I can rip out the cip for you if you want.

Even so much as Art liked blowing off steam about it, and venting provided some therapeudic value over the issue, how bad is it really?

Sure, the idea of DST starting again every year isn't much fun if you have a lot of clocks to reset - BUT in the end and all's said and done, is it anything to lose sleep over?
