The K-Files


Welcome to the latest installment of The K-Files.

At the top of a short list of superstar guests I look forward to on Coast to Coast AM, Alex 'The Bulldog' Jones is a hero of mine. I read his website, I watch his documentaries, and I follow his theories, yet despite my fanaticism, I'm ashamed to admit that I have never listened to his daily radio show. That is until now. Welcoming guest George Noory for a brief interview, Tuesday's episode was something I simply couldn't pass up.

You'd better get ready, 'cause here come The K-Files...

:: Special Report::

For anyone who even occasionally reads these weekly columns or checks out my website, it should be easy to tell that I am a fan of documentary filmmaker and conspiracy theorist, Alex 'The Bulldog' Jones. I'm the kind of guy that will encourage coworkers to visit Infowars.com and PrisonPlanet.com. I'm the kind Coast to Coast AM listener than scans the newly posted schedule for Jones' name. I was the guy that cheered during Jones' scene in Richard Linklater's A Scanner Darkly. Yup...if ever I was to choose one, Alex Jones is my top candidate as someone I would like to consider a personal hero. That said, I have a confession to make...

...I've never listened to The Alex Jones Show.

It shames me to admit this, but alas, I have never sat down and listened to Alex's radio show. I frequent Infowars.com, have all of his Coast to Coast AM interviews downloaded, and have watched all but his latest documentary, yet I deprive myself of a daily dosage of Alex Jones goodness. Trying to rationalize this with myself, my first thought was that the time of his show (11am to 2pm Austin, TX time) conflicted with my schedule. But then that doesn't really give me an excuse, considering he replays the show in a constant loop throughout the day. 24/7, all I need to do is click a couple links and I can hear Alex Jones whenever I want. While contemplating why it is then that I can't help but feel disappointed each week he is not on Coast to Coast AM, I came across a Coast Riders message board post about George Noory appearing on AJ's show. With news like that, there was no longer any possible justification for not tuning in.

That's right, I took the plunge. After years of ignoring it, I finally clicked the "Listen Now" link at Infowars.com. Like a kid opening his first present on Christmas morning, I was prepared to enter into a realm of excitement and unpredictability. I was not disappointed.

For the record books, the very first Alex Jones Show I listened to was Tuesday, November 14's episode featuring George Noory. The first thing that struck me was Alex Jones' sarcastic and sometimes over the top humor. At the start of the show, he went through the daily news while adding his conspiratorial commentary. I cracked up when, while reading quotes from various mainstream journalists, Jones talks in a sniveling, maniacal voice. If you've seen one of his documentaries, you probably know what I'm talking about. Always the drama queen, Jones has a way of adding his own unique humor into what are usually pretty serious subjects. Likewise, as a sci-fi movie buff, I always enjoy Alex's numerous movie references. For instance, he uses the Star Wars Imperial March song as bumper music. Also, after interviewing Martin Ingram regarding British government-sponsored terrorism, he cited an obscure quote from V For Vendetta. I'm sure if given the opportunity to meet him, Jones and I would get along pretty well. If all else failed, we could just quote our favorite movies lines if ever there was an awkward silence.

But anywho, the show was highly entertaining. Jumping between guests, open lines, and personal commentary seemingly at a whim, the show is fast, varied, and engaging. Though the segment I was most looking forward to came towards the end. After hearing George struggle to keep the upper hand hosting interviews with Alex Jones on so many occasions, I was interested to see how George would handle being in the hot seat and at the mercy of The Bulldog.

After the person that Alex introduced as George Noory started talking, I thought I'd lost my mind for a second. People say this all the time when calling into Coast to Coast--and usually I laugh at them--but man does George sound different on the phone. I've experienced the in-studio shock before with Richard C. Hoagland and Linda Moulton Howe, but this was just something else. I expected to hear something similar to how George sounded when he appeared on Glenn Beck a couple weeks back, but this truly did not sound like the guy that I've been listening to nearly every night for the past few years. In fact, as soon as Jones opened up the phone lines, I couldn't differentiate between Noory and the callers.

Once the initial shock of Noory's un-altered voice began to wore off however, I began to warm up to the interview. They started off easy enough, pitching a few slow-balls to each other about how they first made contact. George then made a comment about his desire to turn Coast to Coast away from a 100% paranormal show and into something more about the "mysteries of the mind." Alex Jones agreed. Then things turned a little more juicy. Both The Bulldog and The Noor concluded that people are starting to wake up to what's really going on in the world, agreeing that a new wave of anti-globalism is quickly becoming a hot political item in America. Jones then brought 9/11 into the fold by mentioning a poll that states 84% of Americans don't believe in the official government explanation to events of that day.

Good info going around, but it felt like something was missing during the interview. I believe it was the lack of plugs for websites. Unlike Jones (who ends most sentences with "...at Infowars or PrisonPlanet.com!" while on Coast to Coast), George played the humble gentleman, waiting for Alex to being it up before pushing his book. Jones did his best to ask some questions about the subject matter, but new age isn't quite his forte and the interview quickly moved on to other subjects. Though before things turned conspiratorial again, they took a brief detour into Ufology. I loved it when George brought up the topic of UFOs in one of their past interviews, so I wanted to see where Jones would go with this. He mentioned Nick Pope's appearance on Coast to Coast last Friday (I guess this means he was listening to Art Bell?) and his claim that aliens could attack us at any minute. Noory went on and talked about how he believes aliens probably helped to shape mankind, but was caught me as most interesting was Jones' attempt to link UFOs to government sponsored terrorism (going so far as to implying that perhaps Pope's comment was somehow linked to this). Good stuff for the serious esoterica follower.

Returning from break, Jones made a hilarious attempt to mimic Coast to Coast announcer Ross Mitchell. He later went on to describe George as "classy." Then opened the phone lines and callers began to flow in. As was later revealed by Jones, he doesn't screen his calls...and it kind of showed. Although they had the chance to talk to George in a more personal setting, most of them didn't even address The Noor--instead most briefly recognized him before continuing with any number of topics (including a theory that someone is driving the flipping upside-down of stars on various logos...perhaps symbolizing some kind of Satanic message). One caller brought up Art Bell and his negativity to the 9/11 truth movement, to which George replied that each host of Coast has a right to handle the show and the topics as he sees fit. George then went on to clarify his beliefs regarding 9/11, commenting that President Bush probably didn't know it was going to happen before adding in a quick blow asking why "...he [Bush] says most of the things he says?"

Rounding up the interview with flare, a rather perturbed caller started accusing George of labeling conspiracy theorists "Kooks." George even got into a bit of a shouting match as he tried to assure the caller that he was mistaken. Alex then put the guy on hold, allowing George to suggest that the caller was probably confused with a comment made by a guest he was interviewing. It was an interesting exchange, especially considering Jones was quick to say that he wouldn't baby George by cutting off the caller for confronting him on the air. Is he just that dedicated a host? Or was perhaps Jones getting some revenge on The Noor? Hm...

All in all, I found myself completely impressed by The Alex Jones Show. After finally listening to an entire episode, my shame of not having done so earlier only deepened. Now, every time I feel the need for a conspiratorial fix, I wont hesitate to load up some Jones.
