The Liver King is not natural? Say Whatttttt???

Posted on

The guy who goes by ‘liver king’ has put out a video to come clean and admit he is not natural. Say what? Really? Thank you for admitting it. I would never have thought otherwise 🤦‍♂️

People are praising him for coming clean. He came clean because an email got leaked from his trainer that shows he spends anywhere from 10000 to 15000 a month on gear. On the juice. On the gym candy. $10000 per MONTH!!

He came clean because he got caught!!! Stop with the praising. Had the leak not happened he would have continued to lie. And what’s worse with these so called influencers is they con regular joe nobodies who fall for these lies hook, line and sinker. It’s all about duping people out of their hard earned money with phony programs, food regimens, supplements and merch.

And I don’t want to be cynical but his video explanation is worse than his lying all this time about being natural. It’s all about making sure to use those magic words & circumstances that are the current ‘in’ thing. Throw the word suicidal here, depression there and all is forgiven.

Lies. More lies.

And I know that we should not pass judgement because we don’t know what others are going through.. But you know what? Sometimes people just lie and manipulate. Facts.

Liver King is not alone.. Mike O’Hearn is another phony who claims to be natural… but go ahead and continue to give him your hard earned $$

When You Try Too Hard…

And fall flat on your face. Or atleast I think I did.

Back in August my son and I took a trip to Vancouver. The girls were in Europe for a good month and given my work situation I could not join them. My son also spent time in Europe with some friends so he had a good summer of travel. I needed to feel like I had a vacation so at a moment’s notice we decided on Vancouver. My main motivation was that I wanted to see some friends I hadn’t seen person to person since our teenage years. Mind you, I did cross paths with my friend back in our mid/late twenties in downtown Montreal but his sister I hadn’t seen in forever. I was both excited and anxiety filled because… me.

After numerous discussions with myself I finally sent my friend a message only once we got to Vancouver.. Essentially our first full day there. Given I just sprang this on him I was fully prepared to accept if we couldn’t get together. Luckily that was not the case and we set a date to get together.

We planned to meet at his sister’s house so that we could go over to their moms who lived close by as I absolutely wanted to see her.

This is where things start to spiral down due to ….me… I just don’t get it. In the end I think I am my worst enemy.

For the most part my nerves got the best of me. And when I get nervous I also start to stutter. It’s interesting. I have had many people over the years, including colleagues (my boss specifically) compliment me on my writing skills… unfortunately that does not translate to when I speak. Sometimes. I always say that I am not eloquent when I speak.
I also over analyze and that always makes things worse and unnecessary.

So let’s analyze, shall we? 😆

Leading up to the meet I was stressing over the fact I could not remember their mom’s name. Literally beside myself with anxiety… and so I stuttered through asking what her name is.

When we got to their moms I sat on a chair and immediately realized and felt something was wrong with the chair. It moved like it was going to break apart. So a normal human being would have said something.. Me? Mr. over analyze things, felt like I didn’t want to embarrass the mom and decided to stay seated and move as little as possible while praying to the gods that I was mistaken… but as time went on there were subtle indications I was not wrong. And then the moment happened; the chair collapsed under me. Thankfully, I guess, my ninja like reflexes kicked in and I was able to grab onto the table and so didn’t flat out fall completely to the floor. Still an embarrassing moment.

After I switched chairs we caught up a little and things were going great. At one point I was asked if I’d ever retire to Italy. I could have made the answer somewhat simple but instead I brought up the fact we bought property there at the onset of covid. It bothers me so much because it can certainly come across as showing off. And really that is not who I am.

Fast forward to the restaurant.
We order drinks and soon after the waitress comes paper and pen in hand and says something. She was at the far end and admittedly I didn’t hear what she said so assumed. My response was clearly wrong because she walked away and that caused some laughter.
Would it have been so hard to just stay quiet or ask the waitress to repeat herself? Serenity now.

The catching up we did at the restaurant was so good. I could have spent hours and hours with them… unfortunately it was a weekday and unlike my son and I they had work the next day. So how could I end the night without another blunder? 🤔

I decided that I would pick up the tab. The reason was all but innocent. Here I am sitting with friends I hadn’t seen in years. I didn’t give them a heads up I’d be in their neighborhood. Yet they made the time for my son and I when they could have said no and I would have understood. I was very grateful for that. Simply put, it was my way of saying thank you and nothing more. Honestly, I don’t know that I could have found the words to properly express how I was feeling. Yet because of how my brain works all I could think about after the fact and AGAIN was ‘what if they thought I was showing off?’. My brain.

You know that expression… you don’t get a second chance to make a first impression. I feel I failed. I hope I am wrong. I’ve had moments since where I thought of reaching out and explaining but knowing my luck I would just make things worse and unnecessarily awkward.

The week in Vancouver was too short so it’s definitely not a one and done. I would like to return with the whole family once I can compile a massive amount of $$$ 😋.. Beautiful city but wowsa. Another get together with my friends is definitely in the cards and hopefully I can do better this time around.

I thought by writing down my misadventures it would be cathartic… but to this day and months later I am angry at myself and writing it down has not really helped. 😆

#Blonde Ambition

Posted on

I watched #blonde on Netflix. nearly 3hrs.. Artistically beautiful and I think Ana did a phenomenal job. Her mannerisms was spot on. Having said that….ooffa … just a terrible depiction of Norma Jean.

I was not yet born when Norma died…I don’t pretend to know anything about her life other than what every other regular joe read over the years. The conspiracies. I was intrigued by what this movie would bring to the table.

This movie depicts her in such a brutal way. I came out of it just feeling utter sorrow for her even though it’s fictional.

Is Blonde based on a true story?
Aside from the fact that Blonde is about Marilyn Monroe, it isn’t really based on fact; Blonde is instead primarily based on the events that occurred in the fictional novel of the same name by Joyce Carol Oates(opens in new tab).

Is #blonde based on a true story?

Still my heart just goes out to Norma. Her ambition was to be loved, wanted and accepted instead she was used and abused by the very men who supposedly preferred blondes.

And So It Begins…

The road to becoming empty nesters has begun.

This long labor day weekend has been super busy getting our daughter settled in, in Ottawa where she will be attending school. A lot of drives to and back from Ottawa. It started Friday and it came to a close, for lack of better words, last night.
This year has been heavy on me; anxiety wise. She took her first trip without us this summer. Traveled to Europe with a friend for six weeks. It was a long six weeks!! She’s following this up by leaving the nest for her studies. Of course we’re incredibly proud of her and this accomplishment but at the same time, selfishly, I wanted her to stay local….. And yes, I get it.. I need to accept and cut the cord.. I am hearing it from everyone!!!
I am already feeling the pinch today. With all the weekend hustle and bustle it really didn’t sink in…today it has. The house is quieter :(… I already miss her and her fire cracker of a personality…  one of the best things about my daughter.. And there are many… is her sense of humor…my god she is funny.
As her father all I can do is continue to love her unconditionally..  Support her in her adventures and in what her heart desires and miss her quietly.

My ‘Joe Dirt’ review of #onlymurdersinthebuilding – season 2, episode 2

Posted on

Reading a lot of comments of how awkward the Selena Gomez girl on girl kiss with Cara Delevingne was…

I don’t know Selena personally.. I just know what I see on the socials, shows etc… she looks to be a wonderful person. SO BACK OFF!

The only murder in this episode was not to my eyes but this particular storyline. It doesn’t really make sense.. Too quick.. No true realistic build up. All it was, was a way to check off a checkbox for the sake of it. It adds zero to the storyline (least two episodes in). For shame.


My ‘Joe Dirt’ Review of The Interceptor on #Netflix

Posted on Updated on

Wow. I don’t know where to start.

It won’t be a long review.

2 weeks ago I attempted to watch it the first time and as soon as the lead actress opened her mouth.. I said ‘Hell no.’

Two weeks later and because it was somehow trending on #Netflix I thought maybe I was too harsh.. So attempt #2…

I lasted a good 30 minutes and then I just could not take any more. Horrible storyline, horrible acting… they are trying to check off all these boxes but in such a cringy way.. Ouch. Even Chris Hemsworth being in the movie didn’t help. I am sure his wife is a lovely woman but she is no actress.


I don’t Want To Be A Debbie Downer But…

Posted on

I have written about this former local radio personality before. Admittedly I still follow on Instagram. He also has a podcast but these days who doesn’t.

In one of his latest #instagram video posts he started it with ‘I don’t want to be a Debbie downer but…’ dude.. You’ve been a Debbie downer for over 3 years now.

Here’s the gist of his latest rant or comment or conspiracy or whatever and so on and so on…

I will be paraphrasing but keeping it accurate 😁

He hasn’t been feeling well for some time and finally landed an appt with some doctor for a check up. Out of the blue he gets a call from the doctors administrative assistant to tell him that because this doctor lives on his street it is a conflict of interest and so the doctor cannot see him but got him a referral.

So Debbie downer took it upon himself to tell his audience this story. He felt this was a bizarre reason and suspected that due to his controversial views over the last few years with all that has been happening in the world/province/country that this doctor refused to see him so came up with this nonsensical reason. And he comments something to the effect…’are you telling me that if I am walking on my street and I have a crisis and you happen to drive by you won’t stop and tend to me?’

A few days later he puts out another video to say that someone had forwarded the video to the doctor and she responded to him and that he’d talk about it on his podcast.

I don’t bother listening to his podcast but this I had to hear…essentially she wrote that she makes it a policy not to have family, friends and neighbors as patients and it has nothing to do with him. And she makes it a point to address his ridiculous comment without bringing it up that as a doctor she has an obligation to tend to someone in crisis.

Here’s the thing with Debbie downer.. He should have apologized right there and then in his podcast.. But he didn’t. He ‘accepted‘ her explanation because turns out he does in fact know the doctor and her husband. This couple were one of the first ones he met when he first moved to the neighborhood and although they don’t know each other well ‘they are good people’.

Accept her explanation? Really? How big is your ego? What you did was still leave a grain of doubt in the mind of those that are gullible enough to drink all your Kool-Aid

Instead of putting it out into the world he should have kept this quiet.. Reached out to the doctor again and get/demand a clear explanation… maybe the assistant could have elaborated more…You should read some of the comments in his initial post.. Oh and by the way he’s not a conspiracy theorist. Right. He put the doctor in a terrible light when this could have been all avoided.

He also makes it a point of saying this story is now done because he is the type of guy that moves forward…. Lolll…. Holy motherfucker…. Lol… dude still harbors incredible hatred on being let go of his morning gig some 4+ years ago. Look, I loved that morning show.. He and his co-host were fantastic.. Frankly, they were inexcusably and unceremoniously let go with apparently no reason. Haven’t listened to that station since. He shits on mainstream media these days.. I wonder how his mindset would be if he was still employed by said mainstream media. Would he have quit considering his stance on so many issues? We’ll never know.

He wants you to believe that he takes the high road on things but don’t kid yourself.. Any chance to mock or shade, he takes. And it goes down to name calling. Let’s just say he uses Instagram stories strategically that way.

I should end this post with the following…. Everyone is entitled to their opinion and beliefs… and so am I 😁

PS: if you are curious to know who this person is..there are some clues in this post. I can’t give it all away 😋
