The Rogan Board is Dead

Recommended Posts

After 18+ years it looks like The Rogan Board is dead. Almost twenty years of content of is no more. Gone in a flash. I didn't go there much in recent years, but there was a time when it was one of my main online hangouts. It wasn't for everyone, and it was a product of the time when the internet was much more wild west, but I'll miss it.

Supposedly, Muwt has started a new forum somewhere, but I'm far too detached from The Rogan Board these days to know where that is.

So, from that Reddit thread, the speculation is that Rogan may have posted some stuff down the years that could now be used against him in the current climate. Is that accurate?

I imagine that based on watching some of his podcasts, including earlier stuff and some of his stand up in the past, I can’t help think it’s probably accurate.

He’s an opinionated edgy comedian. A pretty shit one.

All that shit is still archived online.

People say this all the time, but whenever I've had to rely on the Wayback Machine, etc, especially on forums, the coverage has been patchy at best. Like I'd get the topic listing, but none of the topics have been crawled.

It was a wild place and Rogan had thousands and thousands of posts going back almost twenty years, and for years the board was a free fall all. 

As the saying goes, if a cop follows anyone around for long enough they're going to get a ticket. 

Just in general, The Board itself could be a liability to a mainstream celebrity if someone wanted to make trouble.

You're right actually. It's much better for static pages. I've tried to use it for forums in the past and it has been fairly useless.

Having tried finding old pics of retired camgirls I can concur that archive.org is pretty useless for forums and a massive tease (as are dead links to imagesites)

I remember Joe Rogan having an epic flame war with a random college kid on Myspace about a decade ago.

One thing I distinctly remember, aside from how pathetic it is that a millionaire would spend several hours going back and forth with someone over something so trivial, is that the kid got the best burn - despite not being a professional "comedian".

It was "enjoy balding". It was funnier and more cutting than anything Rogan said.

Joe Rogan really isn't a good comedian. I listen to his podcast because he has some entertaining guests, but I'm always shocked at how often he completely misses jokes made by his guests.

Guest: That'd be like a pig flying a plane!

Rogan: Wait, hold on, pigs can't fly planes

He’s completely crap.

You’re right though, he occasionally has decent guests, but the amount of times they say something to him, it goes completely over his head, then they have to repeated the point and break the point down as if speaking to a child.

His round up videos are even worse. He decides that he is the focus of them rather than the guest. 15 mins of him not getting jokes.

To be fair, he’s clearly ‘for’ a certain audience. And that audience isn’t British. There’s some American comedians that travel well but there’s a lot that don’t; the style seems to lack any nuance, or shade, or inuendo, or playfulness... it’s just ‘in your face’ shouting and obviousness.

That said, his childlike wonder and amazement at new things makes his podcast very funny at times. Big fan of him on that.

But, yes, his stand up can get in the bin regardless of how hugely successful he is.

His last special was ok. I've never really rated his stand up much too, but I laughed a couple of times during Triggered. Although laughing twice over a number of specials is obviously not exactly a mighty endorsement. Thing is, I think Rogan comes up with some pretty decent concepts for some of his jokes but he's really shit at crafting them.

Rogan's podcast is a treasure, though. From Wim Hof to Joey Diaz, it's such a varied listen. Even if literal Joe just doesn't get jokes.
