Negative Stigma of Successful Parents

Something I have always found interesting is the negative stigma that surrounds having “rich” parents and receiving help from them.

Of course, you have those kids who are entitled brats who have never worked for anything in they’re life. But those bad few should not represent the many hard working people that have worked hard and long to get where they are going but also have loving parents that help them out from time to time.

You see I was always perceived as this, although none of my parents are rich, they are upper middle class. We grew up in nice homes with nice things. The funny and weird thing is, I’m a harder worker than most who I know that come from less-well-off families than ours. So you see, as always, it comes down to individuals, motivation, drive, character, and i truly believe your environment or circumstance is of little deciding factor, history shows us this to be true.

But my whole thinking behind this, is like, isn’t this one of the main goals of people who have kids? Do well, so your kids can have it better than you did? But now we’re talking shit when my family achieves this but yours doesn’t? You just sound bitter.

I see “must be nice” to have everything handed to you. As if that’s actually the case.

Like, I’m sorry your parents weren’t more successful in life and made better decisions, but don’t take it out on me lol.

I’ve experienced this first hand, but i see it everywhere, especially with the likes of Elon Musk and President Donald Trump.

People try to dismiss and belittle their accomplishments because of family inheritance they got.

I see ” Oh if my daddy gave me a million dollars id be a success too”. NO, you wouldn’t, you would be a broke crack whore in a matter of 6 months, don’t kid yourself, lol. I can say this, because i know this, its all shown in your mindset. History shows this to be true as well, plenty of people blow thru fortunes. You have to have a smart mind to succeed. My guess with or without their inheritance, we still would have heard from the likes of musk and trump.

Like don’t let your bitterness mask your insecurities and create a false sense of “they have it easy, and i have it hard”. First off, EVERYONE, has it hard, regardless of money situation, once you get some more, you’ll figure that out. More Money More Problems isn’t just some made up term for the fun of it lol.

No matter your starting point, you can get where you want to go with enough drive, determination, and passion. Just let go of that bitterness and don’t hold a grudge towards someone just because their parents did something right.

How could you not support Sex Workers?

And I’m not even talking financially, I mean just like morally, don’t we all love porn stars and strippers and what have you?

Welp, were gonna talk about sex work today. I never thought i would have to be like the champion of sex workers rights or whatever but god dam I’m appalled at what i see.

Here’s what I see, dam near every man out here is talking shit/down to sex workers saying its not a real job and this and that and blah blah blah. Meanwhile the majority of girls are all totally supportive.

I find this interesting because i would have totally thought it would be the opposite, right? I mean guys are the majority using these services, right? And maybe a lot of girls who aren’t willing to do the work may hold certain views on those who do, idk. so it would only make sense in my mind. but i was wrong.

Are men ashamed of themselves or jealous or something. and taking it out on the girls and trade? i don’t get this…

like call me a simp all you want, but i fuckin love the porn industry, and all jobs that fall under sex workers, pornstars, models, dancers, prostitutes, call/messaging services, etc, and not only from a customer standpoint but also a creative i recognize the amount of work that goes in to it, i fuckin love the girls, i mean who doesn’t, some of my favorite chicks on the planet are pornstars, idk if theres any correlation lololol, jk, lets move on.

But these guys talking all this shit WATCH PORN AND LOVE IT, like WHO YOU THINK IS IN THAT PORN???… like wtf, i dont usually publicly talk shit about something i love at the risk of looking like a complete jackass…

“ThE poRn i wAtCh Is FrEe” uhhh no it isnt. you may be watching it for free, lol, doesnt mean its free. What that means is your pretty much stealing a digital product, and by watching it your giving ad revenue to the porn site that’s more than likely illegally hosting that video, stolen from a porn company that produced it. These videos are produced with money to make money, alot of people involved in production. Not hard to understand.

Whats particularly funny is he was calling others and trying to make fun of them for being liberals, claiming they want handouts, and free stuff….. the irony was lost on him

Look no ones disagreeing that watching porn for free is the way to go lol, like its clearly the way to go lol… but there’s no need to degrade those who pay for it and those who offer those services. Like have a little respect and sympathy for your fellow man lol, there’s plenty of poor saps out there down on their luck that need a little paid company. You need to realize that its because of those poor saps that people like you and me can enjoy free porn.

Also, lets note, in regards to the creative aspect, paying for porn gets you full movies, in 4k. You know, myself, I like a good story. I like to feel immersed you know what im saying? I’m telling you, there are some straight artists and visionaries in the porn industry lol, sure there are hacks that just film fucking with no love for the craft, but hey that’s in every industry, i digress.

people like to boil things down to their simplest form, but lets think about this, it may be more enjoyable and less physically demanding than building a skyscraper, but so is my job as a freelancer, does that mean i don’t have a “real job” what exactly about sex work doesn’t make it a real job?

Like honestly, and ive said this 1000 times lol, if i was a chick id be a total “slut” and sex worker and make bank off fucking, like why not, my only guess is, that these guys are upset they cant do the same thing, no one wants to see them nude, maybe a sex worker even turned them down, lol…

all I’m saying is these types of people shouldn’t be allowed to enjoy porn or strip clubs … they cant even respect those who provide it to them

Like i dont even know why im writing this but i came across an article about the only fans drama and there were so many doods in there talking mad shit and im just like what the fuck is wrong with people lol.

We just need more compassion, I’m telling chicks all the time they need to sell their feet pics lol, cuz there’s a market, and sure at first we think those people are weird, maybe they are lol, and maybe we wanna judge and make fun of them cuz its something we would never do, but who cares ya know lol, look at Quentin Tarantino, amazing filmmaker with a foot fetish lol but hes cool so what evs ya know, that dood prolly paid for a foot pic or two back in his day before girls were walking up to him and asking him to sign their feet lol

Continuing on this thought, whats so weird about a foot fetish, is it any weirder than having a legs fetish or ass fetish or titty fetish lol idk i digress, we will be here all day

Anyway, i got banned from Fb cuz of the convo below lol, its not my fault man, i gotta call it how i see it, like the way i see it, its totally acceptable to call someone an idiot or dim when they are being so, if it wasnt we would be in a scary place, like the place we are headed since we are now punishing this speech lol, could have been nicer yes, but like dam, how soft are we, and we’re allowed to openly ridicule one thing but not the other, wtf lol

Quarantine was a Time for Personal Growth

I feel like a chicken running around with out his head lately, but in a good way.

I caught myself getting comfortable and doing the daily Instagram edit and calling it a day. It became less about art and more about checking a box everyday.

Dont get me wrong, I love my Instagram edits and its not like I was phoning them in, its just… I don’t like to stay in one lane for too long..

So yeah I noticed I haven’t been pushing myself like I used to.

So a while back I decided to to set some other daily boxes I needed to check, I decided I would try to learn something new everyday. I have been watching at least one tutorial a day to add tricks to my arsenal when it comes to creating with adobe.

Ive been getting back into physical art again, I forgot how awesome it is to create a piece in the real world with your hands… again im not knocking the digital art world, just expressing how I love all things art, and for a time it seemed like I forgot that.

So yeah, I’ve been pushing hard to try new things, new mediums, new techniques, etc… im learning new software, programs, apps, you name it, im learning 3d which is really pushing my art to the next level and giving me a new wave of creativity to work with, which im super excited for…

With all this, im jumping into the NFT scene, launching my first collection, “instaBABES”, which are presented as trading cards, many more collections and NFTs are coming, it takes a bit on my end to get them made, uploaded and minted, but I have streamlined the process quite a bit, so they should be dropping consistently, keep an eye out, I will create a section for them here on the site…

Its not all been art related, I been pushing to reading more and writing more which im excited about, I been researching more, learn about new topics, learn new words, anything and everything…

I have been learning more about the stock market, crypto currency which is super exciting, but also makes me mad that I haven’t been doing this for years as I have already made some nice change on the market. But oh well, no point in dwelling on the past, lets just make sure to get it today and tomorrow.

So yeah, be a student of life, were all still in school, make sure to catch your self when your getting to comfortable and push yourself to evolve, to advance in all aspects of life, there’s not much better things you can do for yourself, other than health things…

Its just crazy to look back and see all the things I’ve learned and improved on in such a short amount of time, its bittersweet, cuz it makes you feel like you’ve wasted time, but you cant look at it like that, and I know that’s easier said than done, but even that “wasted time” can be super beneficial in retrospect..

So it feels great with all this personal growth going on, but it doesn’t come without its negatives, at least for me, I love having all this stuff going on and the benefits of such things, but my anxiety does not lol, hence the feeling of running around like a chicken without his head.

I kinda wanna start on some alpha brain, don’t you just wish that limitless pill was real, that shit be dope.. abrupt end of blog

My Thoughts On Dr. Jordan Peterson

I wrote this specifically about Jordan and things Ive noticed. But it underlines a bigger issue that remains unchecked, in which the radical left deems anyone who thinks other than them, a racist, homophobe, sexist, you name it.

For the past 5 years this has been there go to tactic to discredit and deplatform those who think otherwise than them. For the past 5 years I’ve warned people about this sort of thing, how dangerous a precedent it sets. Sure enough we only see it get worse, just as I said it would.

Its ironic, the only reason I know about Peterson is because of the people who hate him. Back when Charlie Hunnam said he likes Jordan Peterson, everyone had a hissy fit, its what made me look into Jordan. I write about the Charlie hunnam connection in the article but I forgot to point out the underlying issue of that whole scenario(like I need to point this shit out). Buts it like, you cant even mention a slither of support for someone like Peterson (or trump) without being labeled the worst of the worst. Its all part of a much larger issue.

https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/actor-charlie-hunnam-sparks-outcry-revealing-hes-big-fan-mens-rights-figure-jordan-peterson-183447232.html

I would implore people to watch this video of Jon Stewart and really listen to what hes saying.

This video is something I live on a daily basis.

Jordan Bernt Peterson is a Canadian clinical psychologist and a professor of psychology at the University of Toronto. He began to receive widespread attention in the late 2010s for his views on cultural and political issues.

It probably took longer than it should have for Jordan Peterson to pop up on my radar, I’ve only come to know about him in the past few years.

The first time I heard his name, was a few years back in a interview with Charlie Hunnam, and he said something along the lines of, “I think the work that Dr. Jordan Peterson is doing is incredibly important” or something like that. I remember reading comments and people were losing their shit that their beloved Charlie Hunnam supported a racist, homophobe, misogynist, etc you get the point. As a fan of Charlie Hunnam, I couldn’t believe this, I had to find out more about this racist piece of shit that one of my favorite actors supports.

Well, no surprise, when I found out this is yet another case of baseless attacks from the radical left. I found this man to be incredibly intelligent, caring, patient, understanding, and just all around actually cares and gives a dam about what he believes in.

I figured out pretty quickly after watching a few videos what Jordan was about and what he stood for, he couldn’t be anything further from what these people were labeling him as(we see this far too often now, its a problem). So over the years I would listen and watch his videos and debates and as time went on I found it harder and harder to believe that there are actually people that disagree and want to argue about what this man says. I began to see a pattern, especially in his debates, which I talk about below, but I began to see patterns and similarities everywhere, the similarities between this man and trump, the similarities in the way the radical left treat anyone who thinks outside their bubble, the similarities in radical and ridiculous thought process of all radical leftest, just so much, it seems now a days everything can be connected to one another in some way shape or form.

I find Jordan Peterson, and the situation he finds himself in, time and time again, fascinating.

He embodies intelligence in the rarest form, common sense. Of course he is a doctor, professor, scholar, psychologist, blah blah blah, summed up, he has a crazy amount of book smart, insanely intelligent. But that doesn’t matter as much to me, as there are plenty of people with a whole lot of book smarts, but they’re sill dumb as hell, lacking common sense. I see common sense as the most important type of intelligence, especially in this day of age where there seems so little of it around.

I watch his debates, and they’re not really debates, its just a time period of someone throwing false accusations at Jordan and he has to spend his time correcting them on something he said. No real discussion ever happens, and if so, it’s rare.

I find it incredibly frustrating, to watch this man, try only to help people while spreading some common sense, and be met with such aggressive response and false accusations.

You can see his frustration as well, but he handles it so much better than any of us would, hes always patient, calm, never interrupts, never uses personal attacks, he thinks about what hes going to say. (Even if you don’t like the man, you have to admire these traits in a time such as this)

Its just quite refreshing to see someone like him get as much attention as he gets when people all around him are being deplatformed and silenced, I wouldn’t be surprised if they come for him soon.

I think what I and millions others find fascinating about him, is; his thoughts and viewpoints as well as the situation he finds himself in echos so very well what everyday people like you and me who disagree with the radical left have to go thru, on a daily basis. We get absurd and false accusations thrown at us, taking conversations away from issues and to the defense of ones character, which in more cases than not, had no merit to be in question in the first place. So Jordan is yet another in a long line of examples of how the radical left can damage someones reputation with no merit, it’s dangerous and has gone unchecked and continues to go unchecked, its only going to get worse, something Jordan himself speaks of.

He just showcases frustration when discussing topics with people that hold radical left views so well, you watch him in awe that he hasn’t lost his shit yet. Thats what I admire most about him, hes calm and collect, where as I would be screaming profanities and just not have the time or energy to try and teach someone common sense.

Its just something I wanted to comment on, after watching him, trump, and many others for the past 4 years be called everything in the book with no merit, I feel bad for Jordan Peterson, that he has to deal with what he has to, it probably weighs on him. When you see him in an interview where his views are not being attacked, take his interview with comedian Theo Von for example, he is a totally different person, a normal person, that likes to laugh and share stories, just like you and me, I wish he could have more of that in his life and less of this stress but I admire him for doing this work, as I feel its incredibly important and there should be more people like Jordan. Another similarity with this man and trump about interviews, go watch the Barstool Sports interview with Trump, he’s a totally different person when not being attacked for his views 24/7.

I’m trying to learn as much as I can from this man. He is a person of character I cant even begin to describe. I’m trying to be better about being more civil, understanding, empathetic, more caring, not that I believe I lack any of these things, but we can and must always strive for being better.

Here’s some of Jordan’s Videos:

Look you don’t have to agree with everything or anything for that matter, but dont simply label people these horrible things because they think differently then you do. Thats a horrible way to go about this. It also takes weight away from those words, now when I hear someone is racist, i roll my eyes, its like the boy who cried wolf. Its getting old, and shows a lack of intelligence in my opinion.

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!

P.S Enjoy Some of my favorite Moments from the chef in this compilation I made

The Next Eminem?

So, I always love discovering new artists. It kinda sucks if your an up coming white rapper cuz if your good your always gonna be labeled as the next Eminem lol. But anyway, so earlier this year I discovered NF, a white christian rapper who doesn’t cuss, doesn’t do drugs, and raps about real life issues such as mental health. The fact that he doesn’t cuss is just impressive because I know I as well as many other rappers use curse words to fill out bars sometimes. His music is super relatable to just about anyone as we all have health with these mental health issues at one time or another.

He’s got many flows in his arsenal, he can rap fast, slow, he can sing rap(is what I call it, still rap but kinda singing), the guy is super talented, and as I said before super impressive with his rhymes, not just because he doesn’t cuss but the technicality is all there, if anyone should be labeled the next Eminem it should be this kid, I guess just the clean version tho? He kind of has a dark demented twist vibe about him which reminds me of slim.

So luckily for me shortly after I discover him he’s on tour visiting my hometown, which is surprising cuz no one ever comes here to perform, a fact that is quickly changing tho thanks to the Clyde theatre and Sweetwater. Anyway, I got tickets got to see him live which was pretty dope.

I will say though, the sound kinda sounded a bit off, I’m not sure what it was, but there was something up, but only for a few songs, most of his songs sounded amazing and everything was on point. There was a bunch of platforms that raised about 12-20 feet in the air which was pretty cool. All in all, solid performance, put on a dope show, I would recommend fans of hip hop to try and catch a show of his.

Back to Nashville for Some Family Time

Nashville is always a cool place to visit. Awesome bars on roofs, beautiful ladies, and a pretty chill vibe. But to be honest we didn’t even make it into downtown Nashville this time. We meant to go but the day we tried it started raining, so we went to see a movie instead. Ended up seeing Toy Story 4, and I ended up almost crying at the end, but don’t worry no spoilers here, I would recommend anyone going to see it, its a well done movie, the animation is superb.

While in Nashville I really wanted to check out the zoo, little fun fact about me, I LOVE ZOOS. Anyway, I’m glad I made that suggestion because we ended up running into Yelawolf! Like how crazy is that, we ended up talking to him a little bit then parted ways but the funny thing is we ended up going the same direction on the same path so we were pretty much walking around the Zoo with Yelawolf, pretty surreal. That was for sure the highlight of the Zoo because other than that it kinda sucked. They were putting away all the animals, which I guess was out fault for showing up late but still, the layout of this zoo sucked as well, I’m not sure who designed it, but they need fired lol.

meagain

Other than that, we didn’t do much else but drink beer and go swimming in the pool, the pool was well needed. I got some pretty cool shots with the new 360 camera and my water proof case. I’m really glad I bought that camera, cant wait to see what else I can capture on it. We went out to eat a few times, can not remember the places names, but all of them were really good, I was satisfied.

We watched Knock Knock, starring Keanu Reeves, and as much as I love the guy, shit did that movie suck, but it was so bad that it was entertaining and funny. I got more than a few laughs from it.

All in all we had some good times with the family, if you haven’t been to Nashville, you’re missing out.
