Don’t Get It Twisted | Political Nonsense

Addressing messages and comments I have received since pointing out media bias on the DC Riots.

I see everyone getting what I and other have said SO twisted. Its not surprising, there’s not much critical thinking left, or maybe their doing it purposely to try and fit a narrative that supports their arguments. I’m going to break it down.

We are not condoning the behavior of the terrorists in whats being referred to as “The DC Riots”. In fact if you looked at any Right Reporting News publications, the vast majority of the right were calling these people the same names they called the BLM terrorists; thugs, despicable human beings, terrorists, etc.

A STARK CONTRAST, to what we saw from left reporting news publications calling the riots “protests” and “mostly peaceful” as private businesses burned in the background. It wasn’t until months of this going on and it was hurting Joe in polls that he came out and said he didn’t agree with what was going on. Months, meanwhile the right is condemning these actions as they are happening.

So as I take my time to point out the hypocrisy of both sides, I have to focus on whose being hypocritical at the moment, which is overwhelming the left side. The right is not changing how they feel or talk about violent protestors, aka terrorists, the left is. Only because they are now trump supporters.

We agree with you guys 100%, we are just wondering where the fuck you were during the 6 months of riots and private businesses burning to the ground, it would have been nice for you guys to be as vocal as you are now back then.

I and others are not comparing this to the BLM riots, we are comparing the coverage of the two events, we are simply pointing out your inconsistencies, and the fact you fail to acknowledge they even exists is a huge problem. This is just another example in a long line of examples showcasing what I’m speaking about.

If you cannot see the threat that this poses, then as Kenobi said, we are lost.

Evan Beale’s Political Views

Why am i Making this post?

A few years ago I wouldn’t have felt the need to write this out, but times are crazy.

We live in a time where you have to watch what you say, you can’t have open discussion it seems. When you try, you run the very high risk of being labeled a whole slew of things that just aren’t true to your character.

Since Trump took office we have seen a massive shift not only in the political landscape but just life in general it seems.

Nowadays the discussion is taken away from the real issues and more times than not you have to defend your character as you are falsely labeled something horrible.

I got tired of repeating myself. I think we all agree on more than we disagree on.

Below is what I believe, and to me it is nothing but common sense. You can disagree if you like, I wont hate you, I wont unfriend you, I wont block you, none of that, but I do have to question how one could disagree. I love to have real discussions, so if you have a different view I would love to hear about it and discuss. peace.

A perfect world

Corruption needs to leave politics. Easier said than done, but let’s just imagine it’s a perfect world. Boom we got rid of all the corruption and money in politics. No more special interest groups, no more lobbying, no more back room deals, no more favors, no more fighting for power.

In this perfect world the government is there only to do what it’s meant to do, work for the American people. There would be term limits. The government wouldn’t be divided into two parties and in constant grid lock.

General ideas/

Beliefs

I want every American to have the same rights and freedoms, no matter your gender, race, sexual orientation, or anything else.

No hate groups. Common Sense Laws & Enforcements.

I think healthcare & education should be affordable. While Government can offer assistances, I think we have seen time and time again that the private sector proves to be more efficient in all areas of these matters. If you see how the VA is currently ran you would agree. Government wastes far too much money, the spending goes up while the quality of service goes down.

I think women should have final say over what happens to their bodies. Funding to Planned Parenthood. Pro Choice.

I think we should allow stem cell treatments in the U.S and fund that area dramatically.

I want people to come here legally, that being said there shouldn’t be a years long waiting list, if its taking that long, its only just another reminder of how inept government is at running the show. We need border security.

Everyone other than violent felons and mentally unstable should have the right to bear arms. Pro Common Sense Gun Laws.

I think we should have a strong military and be ready for anything, but I dont think we should be as involved in other countries as we are, we should be like Canada and just chill, but we can still help out of course, but I make a strong emphasis on helping our own first as we have people we need to take care of.

We need to take care of vets, homeless, poor and hungry, in a place that wastes so much food, there is no doubt better systems and programs we can put into place where no one needs to go hungry.

I think the tax code should be simplified. In a perfect world, income tax would be gone, and tax would only exist on usage and goods. If there must be an income tax, in my eyes, the fairest way to go about this would be a flat tax rate. We don’t want to tax the American Dream.

I think marijuana should be legalized, the revenue it would create could be used for numerous things.

I think people should not be fined and jailed for drug use, but required to complete drug classes.

I believe in smaller government, bigger private sector with less government oversight. More power to state level government, federal upholds united front, constitutional law and order, utilities.

Captains Log: 010 – Timers are helping me

Things are still crazy here in 2020, the election still has people anxious. Personally, I have kept my head down and stayed in doors since theres nothing to do.

The current covid situation has given me time to draw more, and trust me when I say I could use the practice. Its hard to set time aside normally for such things, but I always forget how much you can actually get done in a short amount of time. Even if I set a timer for 5 min, 10 min, 20 min, and just go I’m always surprised how much I can accomplish.

Utilizing timers is something I have found to be very beneficial to me, sometimes I think of tasks as taking longer than they actually do, I think “aw man I gotta write this blog, thats gonna take hours” which is absurd, cuz it doesn’t take that long, I mean it could but you get my drift. Never the less, I have found these absurd thoughts are perhaps my excuse to procrastinate. So I have found Its much easier, for me at least, it seems, to set small pockets of time aside and set the timer. I find if I set a 5 min timer and just write away for a blog I almost have the thing done, then I’m like shit, just another 5 mins.

It gives me a different more realistic time management and understanding for these tasks. Just something I wanted to share, im always doing 100 tasks at once, so some times its nice to dedicate small amounts of time to certain tasks so you can be sure everything that needs to be done is getting done.

Not much is new on the site here. I have launched new product in my dopely threaded store, it would be dope of you to go and buy some drip lol.

Make sure to follow the YouTube, im always adding content there. Been working on a lot of video content, for myself and others, love to get your thoughts on it!

Still working away on all my brands, working on getting artist connect back up and running, but it takes a lot of work, but its something I really believe in, so im getting it going, should be back up very soon.

Thanks for checking in fam, hope you all are well.

Reporting in after the coronavirus lockdown

2020 has been one hell of a ride, and it’s not even over yet, but soon my friends. As with everything, this too shall pass.

I remember at the beginning of the year I had so many things I wanted to do, traveling, new food spots, festivals, all sorts of things, and then coronavirus came and shit all over that for me and everyone else.

So since march I’ve held my head down, rarely left my house, got a little fatter, enjoyed some awesome new shows, tidy some files up, continued on client work, got new clients, played video games, and organized the studio with some new upgrades.

Not too much has changed for me, working from home is a luxury that I appreciate everyday, but even more so in all of this coronavirus nonsense. But I hate that everything is closed down, nothing to do but keep your head down and get some work done, what ever that may be.

I been trying to get back into everything of sorts lol. Been drawing more, ive been working on more abstract digital artwork again which I have always loved but took a bit of a break from it.

Im starting to write more even if it wasn’t evident from this blog, working on a few new stories and creative projects, but take this post as a sign of more to come thanks to me taking a few extra min to sit down and write.

Starting to write scenes for a cartoon I want to eventually create. Who knows when that will come to fruition, could be some time.

I just posted a new episode of the podcast to the YouTube channel, New videos are always being uploaded so make sure you subscribe to the page so you dont miss anything!

I will be updating the Evan reviews everything page very soon, as well as uploading the new reviews you can only find on Facebook right now to the YouTube page.

As always lots happening working on lots in the background, trying to get artist connect back up and running, really need to push for it. Had some set backs when I tried to laugh blackbook, I think I need to take it back to the roots for now until I figure out how to deal with all the spam users. stay tuned for that.

As always stay tuned for everything, thanks for following, thanks for reading, evdog out.

2020 IS A BUST

008

I just realized there hasn’t been a new post on here for a while, and when I come to check when the last CAPTAINS LOG I typed out was at the beginning of 2020, and my oh my, how much optimism I had for this year.

By now, we all know this year is a bust. Dont get me wrong, its perfect for me, I work from home anyway, but still, everything cancelled and shutdown, it really blows.

Ive pretty much wrapped up this whole year as a bust.

But again, I suppose its nice to have this time to hunker down and get shit done on my super long checklist.

Ive been slowly and steadily upgrading my studio, once the next few items come in ill be done with the upgrades for this year so I will make a 2021 Studio Walkthrough video even though the year isn’t over.

I haven’t been able to crank out many EVAN REVIEWS EVERYTHING cuz as we have stated everything is closed down! It really sucks, I want some food!! I will be updating the EVAN REVIEWS EVERYTHING homepage very soon here…

More content is constantly coming to the YouTube channel, make sure you are following me there!

Ive updated a few pages around here, my twitch portfolio for one, go check it out!

In the meantime, im working on all my content, and my sites, including this one, getting ready to revamp ARTIST CONNECT, cant wait!

Stay Tuned,

Drunk Driving has taken TOO MANY LIVES

This was an old post of mine from a few years back when i was going through some trouble, important to note I still no longer drink and drive.

For people that know me. its no secret I”m an alcoholic. I’m sober as of now and would like to share some thoughts.

I had my first class of impaired driving tonight. It was nothing that I expected. It was very heavy. It really made me think. They showed us fucked up videos and told us and shared really fucked up stories. Ive thought about this before, but tonight i shared my thoughts in a group and it was really one of the first times i have said these things out loud. And it really just hit me.
I’m incredibly lucky or blessed. what ever you wanna call it.

But there have been countless times that i could have killed many people on many different occasions, all due to drunk driving. Its something I’m not proud of and never wanted to do, but when you are as big of an alcoholic as i am and drunk all the time, chances are your gonna drive drunk. And I did almost every night. I’m ashamed of it, and I don’t believe alcoholism is a disease, but just a strong addiction, I’m trying to stay better and hopefully i will for everyone’s sake.

When I was 16 I flipped my dads Lincoln into a house and caused 70,000 dollars worth of damage. It was past midnight, but I think had it been earlier when people were awake and not safety sleeping in their beds, they could have been up and around right where i hit. It was a family with three kids, what if one of the kids was getting a late night snack at that instant. I wouldn’t be able to live with my self. I think about this a lot. I cant express how thankful I am that no one was hurt that night.

A few years later I almost hit a person in the middle of the road because I was yet again drunk. They jumped out of the way literally just in time, like milliseconds.

Other situations have happened but it would take too long to literally list all of them, so i will list the most current and move on.

Earlier this year I was dealing with a lot, in the wrong way. I was drunk among other things, and i fell asleep at a red light, I was there in my car with my foot on the break for twenty mins, some how my foot didn’t slip off while there was cross traffic or anything else like that, I could have killed myself or someone else or caused a major accident.

I think about this and how i could live with myself if i had hurt anyone in all these instances, and the only answer i can come up with is, I couldnt. Knowing myself, I know if i ever accidentally ended another humans time on this earth because I WAS DRUNK, I would no doubt kill myself.

I think about this, and it makes me think of my sister, how she lost her life due to an accident not involving alcohol. I think how I could i possibly still be that careless after something like that happened. Well ive always delt with my pain with alcohol. And when i lost her i hit the bottle harder than before, i didn’t care about anything. That is how i could be so careless. But now that i am sober and thinking clearly i realize how dumb i was. I think about the man involved with my sisters crash and how he must feel. I feel for him, I hold no resentment or blame towards him, I feel terrible for him. And alcohol wasn’t involved, i already feel so mad that a stupid car accident that doesn’t make sense that probably could have been avoided ended her life. Then i think about how i would feel if alcohol was involved. and think about people that have lost someone they loved to that situation. A loved one gone, cause someone like me was fuckin stupid, got drunk and drove. something that could have been totally avoided. it breaks my heart.

I think alot about it.

My point is this, I know alot of people, including close friends that drive drunk. I beg you to to please stop. I stopped and never will again. Call an ueber. a ueber ride from fort wayne to albion where i live is 60$ so anywhere in town would no doubt be 20 dollars or less. trust me, even if you do that every night, it will still be far less a price then to pay lawyer fees court fees probation fees ignition starter fees and the hassle and stress that comes along with it all. and god forbid, it would be much less than the ultimate price you could pay, your life, or anothers.

Ive changed and so can you, thinking about all this really gets me down, but i try to stay positive and take one day at a time. No ones perfect. But we can aim to be.

Im not saying be sober.. lol i love to drink to celebrate have fun enjoy myself and to kill the pain.. to each their own if it works it works i aint knocking nobodys way of life im just sayin dont drive

I broke my foot right before I was going to start exercising, dang it.

It is no secret, that I added more than a few pounds to the old whiskey gut over the winter. Now that it has been getting nicer out, I was going to make it a point to get back into skateboarding, maybe start exercising and working out. I’ve been putting the ladder off for some time now. I am not sure if that was on purpose or not, perhaps I let the whole whiskey gut joke go on too long? These are the questions I am now left with.

Anyhow, the day before I was going to start I had an unfortunate accident. The day before, my sober ass mind you, not drunk, completely sober, falls down the stairs and breaks my toes. Fucked them up real good. So was it a sign that I should maybe just keep on keeping on the way I have been? These are the questions I am now left with.

I decided to use this time as a sort of cheat period before I had even gotten started. Now I have an excuse to sit around and be lazy, stuff my face, drink some whiskey, and play video games. So no doubt, no matter how long this last, I’m sure to increase the whiskey gut a few inches out.

This downtime has given me some time to re-focus on some things around here, changes coming, new things coming, you know all that jazz.

Stay safe in this scary time, and don’t run down the stairs otherwise you’ll be fat like me. Thats the real lesson here.

Is Gordon Ramsay a Bad Dad?

Okay now I know you clicked on this article so you could comment down below how I’m a piece of shit and how great Gordon Ramsey is, BUT HEAR ME OUT!

I love Gordan Ramsey first of all, I’m probably one of his biggest fans, so lets get that out of the way.

But wholy shit can we talk about how many shows this guy has? He has to have at least 20 shows right? Like its insane, and its hard to imagine, when you think about it, that he has that much free time on his hands after doing his shows as well as all the other stuff he does.

This guy has a show called Gordon behind bars, where he goes and hangs out with inmates. I think this man really likes his time away from his family! He has a show called Gordon’s Great Escape!

Also, have you ever noticed he never talks about his family or home life ever! Seems sort of suspicious if you ask me.

Also, you think he cooks at home? Or you think he just orders Papa Johns for the family? After cooking for 20 shows you think the last thing he would want to do is cook for the family he so seemingly hates.

Of course, I have never met the man, I don’t know his schedule, perhaps he shoots all these shows in the first week of the month then spends the next 3 weeks with his family, unlikely, but who knows.

Even if he is a bad dad, who cares, you know? The man makes a great scallop. I’ll let his bad parenting skills pass for now.

And if means a family growing up without a dad so I can get my daily dose of Gordon yelling at people, so be it.

If you couldn’t tell I was joking but shit, now my jokes got me thinking??? hmmm… what do you think? Do you think Gordon is a good dad, or do you think its none of our fucking business! Leave your answer in the comments and tune in next week to see what you won!
