1  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: 20 years today. Grind hard - Don’t quit! on: April 09, 2014, 02:22:10 AM
I have had the pleasure of doing some business with Tony and I can honestly state that there isn't a harder working person I have ever met.

What amazes me is that every time I have gone to see Tony in Brunswick is that he takes the time to sit down have a coffee and speak some gossip about life in general, whilst he is still working the phone taking the time to say hello to everyone that walks through the door to train.

I can only wish that I had the drive and passion that Tony has on a day to day basis. The man runs multiple gyms, FitX, Contests and everything else between….Personally I am waiting on him to take over MMA for Melbourne as well!!!!….

Congrats on 20 years. Success for you has been well deserved Tony.

That is a brilliant lift. When I was training to look at competition in the under 90kg Strongman I was doing rack pulls with 360kg (Singles). Floor from memory was 280-300kg x 3.

I remember that it felt like something exploded in my head when it did the rack pull.... The owner of the gym came out to have a look here in Victoria when I was doing it... Funny... Felt like passing out.


Nope, no with that weight, but an oficial world record prof at 40 years old.Tell me if you are happy now Grin

Holy shit I hope you are just being sarcastic….. You realise that you are talking about a full patch member of the Mongols there? They just patched over all the Finks in Australia….. Huge news in that world…

Some members are good friends of mine. I am not part of a club nor will I ever be… Its not what I want but they are still friends since I grew up with them for years…. Whether they are HA, Jokers, Mongels or Bandidos….. etc etc…. I just don't get caught up in their shit.

Don't really see too much here in Melbourne anymore… When I lived in Adelaide it was EVERYWHERE….. Gold Coast… They are everywhere… If anyone thinks they are not they are crazy…

Remember the Kickboxing event on the Gold Coast and the shoot out later???

Here's a pic of the guys who got the word "MONGOLS" tattooed on his head Smiley Not the smartest of guys, and probably as severely limited any realistic employment options. He may was well also tattoo the word "RETARD" on his head too.

Hi Vince….. Our most awarded photographer in australia is Peter Lik. The first person in world to sell a photo for a cool $1m as well…..

To be selected and become a MOAB Master it is most certainly something to be proud of……

Peter lik is Australias finest.


I had to look up MOAB masters and found that they use Moab fine art printing paper. So I doubt it is a special award. I had a look at some of his photos as well.

Australia has two masters of photography. Peter Eastway and David Oliver. I have heard them speak at our camera club. To get that title you have to submit portfolios

over a long period and be accepted by a judging panel. I don't pay much attention to photography awards but always enjoy looking at new ideas and portfolios.

Not many make a living out of photography except for those who do weddings and maybe a few sports and commercial photographers.

Hey Vince. I have a friend whom is quite a famous photographer. Joshua Holko. He is the first and only MOAB master in Australia…. Have a look at his website.

http://www.jholko.com

Funny… He gave up selling Home Automation products to become one of the best photographers in the world.




Not only are there great views and beaches but they have some fantastic trees in Australia. I found this giant tree on Mount Tamborine, which is about 25 km from Surfers. I had a tiny Gorilla tripod so secured it around the huge root and then set a 10 second delay and rushed to get into position and remain still for a time exposure of a few seconds. Not easy to do so I needed several goes to get it right. I used an 8-15 Canon fisheye lens which distorts the Picabeen Palm trees there. What a place those Rain Forests are.

Well sorry you are out of touch with what is going on. Fortunately for myself whom works within the Hotel Industry the growth areas are still Perth, NSW & closely followed by Victoria.

The current climate for adding room accommodation within Queensland is at its lowest for almost ten years. No major redevelopment of Hotels and brands other than the Four Points which is in Brisbane not the Gold Coast. The Marriott just had a face change but no real money spent as the hotel is in financial strain.

Melbourne is adding over 2000 rooms in accommodation this year alone. Same as Sydney and huge developments there as well….

So the Gold Coast is pretty much crap



Quickerblade and trav you guys are out of touch.

Yes prices boomed and then fell. If you bought at the peak you are a fool. Now is the time to be buying as prices have come down are poised to boom due to immigration (both within oz and from overseas) and due to low interest rates.

As for empty shops, yes that was because there was a huge rail infrastructure project going on. It's nearly compete and surfers paradise will again soon thrive. My favorite places are actually mermaid beach and burleigh which I think will double in property values next 5 years

Hahahahaha….. That right? All gone are they? If you really think that then you really are not familiar with what is going on.

Go have a look at how many chapters there are still in QLD. Sure the Police are cracking down but they did the same in South Australia and still I have many friends riding around with no issues. Same in QLD. Don't believe everything you read on the paper or see on television.




big time, they do not exist here anymore. All clubhouses closed, not allowed to be in a group or wear clothes with club symbols. They have been prosecuted harsher than Jews in Nazi Germany.
Gone.

The Gold Coast is scum land…….Great place to visit. Shit hole to live.
Everyone over spent on house there and now they owe more than what they are worth…..

The Soul building is a great example. People paid HUGE deposits for apartments there. Then the whole economy dropped in QLD like nothing you have ever seen. It was cheaper to walk away from the deposit and buy exactly the same apartment for less….

Now if Vince wants to argue that let him. I friggin supplied that crap building. Lost money twice due to contractors. They had so many issues with the foundation hence it took so long to be built.

GO LOOK ON LINE AND SEE ALL THE VIDEOS OF THE BIKIE INCIDENTS THERE…. THEY ARE HEAPS.

The stabbings happened at Fitness First.

Get over it.... Were you there? Next you will be saying the mongolians should pay for the greek debt because of their atrocities.....

Coming from a Greek Family.... NONE OF US CARE ABOUT IT.... ITS THE PAST FELLA.



Soon, in 22th of May we gonna have a memory festival here in Crete, of the Battle Of Crete where during the WW2, the German airborns fought to conquer our island.

After their victory aginst the Greeks, the Australians, the New Zealands, the South Africans, the Englands and the Americans, they do several things to our people.

They burn down my village, they burn olive trees (the local economy moderator), they feed their soldiers with cows and chickens and goats...

They killed several civilians in many villages around Crete.

You think the destroy of the local economy, the demolish of those villages, of roads, of our local domestic structures should not be paid off, as the Germans paid other European countries?!

But the lives of hounderns of Greeks, they can't paid off...

What I find amusing is that someone whom is stating he has a high IQ actually posts the Wechsler intelligence test for CHILDREN. This is a reflection of your intelligence as an Adult, in fact it is stated that the scale would be reduced making your ADULT IQ in the vicinity of about 120.... Average at best...





This wasn't intended to be a thesis, it was merely a thought provoking post.  Of course I have a much more thorough and coherent theory of the MULTIVERSE, but it wold require that my audience have at least a fundamental understanding of Quantum Physics, Classical Physics, EMERGENT PROPERTIES, fractal gemoetry, and THE BRAIN.

Hmmmm..... What to type here  considering everything I had to do with Keith....

I liked Keith.....He was a great story teller and personally was a lot of fun....

Business wise....He stole money from me but I forgave him in the end....

Porn wise.... Yes he was addicted....I am sure there are no members here that knew that Keith had started a porn site and was making some money from it... I do because it was something he wanted me to invest in...

I have quite a few stories on Keith....Many very interesting... Some worth telling and some I wonder if I even should discuss since he has passed... I will leave it up to you to decide if you want to hear them or not.....My view on when you die who gives a shit what is said... Your dead.

great one...

onlyme:
This one just came up yesterday when talking to someone.  When I first moved to Hawaii, I became involved with an organization called NO Hope IN Dope.  It was formed by a policeman and supported greatly by the force and other companies.  We went around and did speakings at schools and companies all over the state.  We did this almost every week somewhere.  I must have been to more than 50 schools around Hawaii.  Well one time we spoke at a Youth Correctional Facility.

Most of the people involved in the performance part of this were athletes or known celebrities in Hawaii.  They all took drugs at one point but then became clean and wanted to share their stories to help others.  I on the other hand has never taken drugs.  I mean like pot, coke or anything like that.  I did take steroids for awhile and I actually tell everyone that when I speak.  But the main point was the hard drugs and I was there because I became successful and led a great life without doing drugs.

Well at this correctional facility I spoke to the kids and told them stories of things i did and even armwrestled quite a few of them.  It was great and the kids loved it.  They all were really nice kids.

Well about a few years later, I was in LA with a friend walking through a mall in the Valley.  I hear "hey Keith!" all of a sudden.  We look around and their is this kid waving at me then he comes running down the escalator towards us.  We shake hands and he says "Keith you probably don't remember me but I was at the Youth Correctional Facility when you came there and talked to us."  I said I remembered that but really didn't remember him.  He said "I want to tell you that you were really great when you came there and I listened to you."  You inspired me and I armwrestle now."  I said no way and he said he lives in northern california and he has been armwrestling for the past year and won some matches.  He siad he loved it. He thanked me again and again. 

It made me feel good that I helped him.

I have another Special Olympica one I just thought of I will tell soon.

onlyme:
Okay my first one.  And this one gets me everytime I tell it to someone.  Very hard for me not to get teared up when I think about this time.  (Yes I am now)

Anyway I was a celebrity volunteer for the Special Olympics.  For about 3 years I spent allot of time traveling around the country working with the Special Olympics as a volunteer to help encourage the kids and also put on demonstrations and hold clinics for the kids.  At time Rafer Johnson was the President of the Special Olympics.  I met with him and Eunice Shriver (who invented the Special Olympics with her husband Sargent, and is also Maria Shrivers parents) and we were looking into having armwrestling as part of the Special Olympics.  Well that didn't last to long cause it is a very long and very hard and expensive ordeal.  You literally have to have EVERY chapter around the world not only have it as a demonstration sport first but 100% of them have to approve it. 

SO I gave up on that idea but still brought my table to every Special Olympics I went too.  And at every single event I ever went to, my clinic was the most packed and participated of them all.  I mean EVERYONE wanted to armwrestle.

Well one thing I did was let the kids armwrestle me.  I would sometimes armwrestle 300 kids or more a day.  It was awesome!  Every single kid I let beat me.  And every kid woudl go ballastic.  They would jump up and down yelling they beat me and everything.  It was great.  The parents were usually there taking pictures and everything.  I loved this.

Well at the International Winter Games in Reno in 1989 I had a great time.  met so many people.  I played craps and all the other celebrities I would play for and won everyone money.  I can't rmemeber her name but that black ice skater who was really pretty just fell in love with me.  She was so pretty and we spent allot of time togther.  I forgot her name though.

Anyway, on the last day they have the closing ceremonies.  This where we all say bye to everyone and other awards are given out.  Allot like the closing ceremonies at the regualar Olympics.  SO I am standing up watching when all of a sudden this lady comes up to me.  She grabs me and takes me back into this hallway.  She says "Keith I should kill you"  I looked at her and said why what did I do?  She said (her son's name that I can't remember) made me stay up all night to call everyone of his friends back in Minnesota to tell them he beat the World Champion.  He was so exicited he didn't sleep at all she said.  Then she started to cry and grabbed me so hard and just said thank you so many times.  She said her son has never been that excited in his entire life.  I felt so awesome at that moment I can't tell you.

These kids are some of the best anywhere on earth.  I truly loved working with them.  In fact it was the Hawaii team that saw me at these games and the President asking me to come to Hawaii that I would be a huge hit there.

Whenever I think of stuff like this I see exactly how much of a pussy I am.  I can't believe I am letting what happened to me affect me so much.  Not sure why it does, but I will someday hopefully be an inspiration like these kids.  Then I'll be alright.

I gotta a zilliion of these.  If you don't like them just tell me and I'll stop, no problem, just thought I'd share

Opps....more...

onlyme:
Another one of my short stories.  I can't remember the year but it was the Hearns/Leonard fight #2 (the one when Leonard should have won but they gave it to Hearns).  Anyway, as I mentioned before my uncle was a huge boxing fan and supporter.  SO when a big fight came to town he got probably more tickets than anyone in Vegas for free.  So, for this fight we (well him) decided to have a big pre-fihgt party at Caesars.  So he gets the big two story Fantasy Suite.  Probably the most famous suite n Vegas.  SO we walk over from the Barbary with the usual gang of thugs.  Ranging from Chuck Norris, Richard Rountree to Benny Urquidez and the mayor of Vegas Ron Lurie.  Of course I am the entertainment for the hike across the street with my fart machine.  The whole time everyone is following me about 20' behind so they are sure to catch the reactions of everyone as I pass by them farting away.

So we get to the suite and open it up.  We get there about 2 or 3 hours before the fight.  In a matter of minutes the suite has about 50 people in it.  Then all of a sudden Sugar Ray comes in to say hi to everyone.  Him and Chuck hug and he hugs my uncle and of course he doesn't introduce me cause I am at the food table chowing down.  I have my priorities.  Then one of our friends comes out of one of the upstairs bedrooms.  It is our friend SS.  Sukara Sukamto (?)  He is a billionaire playboy guy from Hong Kong who is very close friends with my uncle and Chuck.  He was upstairs doing some chick while we were eating.

Anyway he comes running down the stairs to shake Ray's hand.  He does they hug everyone says good luck including me but I had a cream puff in my hand.  Again, I have priorities.  So, now SS is hanging downstairs saying hi to everyone.

A little history on SS.  He is the son of a guy in Hong Kong who owns city blocks in Hong Kong and throughout China.  He owns the First National Bank of Hawaii (I think thats the name).  He owned the property where the Hawaii Convention Center is built which he sold for $60 million.  On his 30th birthday he chartered a 747 and picked up some of his best friends and they went to Monaco.

My uncle and Chuck always went to Monaco.  They always took there wives.  One time in Monaco SS picked up on a girl that was simply walking in front of the restaurant they were going in to have dinner.  When the got inside she noticed a bunch of old bottles.  She said something  like "I love old bottle I collect them."  So anyway they go inside and get seated for dinner.  SS excuses himself from the table.  He goes out to the front and tells the guy he wants that bottle.  So SS gets the bottle and brings it back to the table.  The girl get all excited.  Well first SS opens the bottle and pours everyone a glass.  Well it ended up that bottle of champagne was $15,000.  My uncle told me that story.  Another thing SS does is he loves to buy girls Rolex watches. Even if he just meets them.

Another quick tidbit that some of you might know about him.  In 2000 I think it was when they had the Grand Opening of the Bellagio, SS came.  Well at the airport he was arrested for gambling debts.  It appeared he owed Steve Wynn $7 million dollars.  Well, from jail SS calls Steve Wynn.  Steve Wynn immediately goes and picks up SS personally from the jail and bails him out.  They deal was he had to play all night at the Bellagio.  SS said that's why I here.  Well in the long run Wnn made out cause I think SS lost $12 million that night.  I know Stunt or someone might now the eact numbers but that is close.  It made the front page of the newspaper in Vegas and Hawaii (cause of the bank connection and the owner getting arrested)

Anyway, back to the party.  SO now we have been eating and drinking for about a couple hours.  My uncle gets up on the landing and starts yelling for everyone to be quiet.  He starts handing out envelopes.  The envelopes had out ticket to the fight in it.  I open mine up and the first thing I notice was the ticket cost $1,200.00.  I was sittng on the first riser.  Which is the perfect place to watch any fight cause you are just above the ropes.  Well I am standing with Richard Roundtree and we are seeing if we are sitting next to each other or close and we weren't.  Then Mike Norris comes up to me.  That is one of Chuck's sons.  He asks "Keith where are you sitting?"  I show him my ticket and he goes bezerk.   I say what wrong with you.  He says really loud Why does Keith have a better ticket than me.  I say what the fuck you talking about.  And his ticket was only $800.  So he was way behind me.  He got so upset that I got a better ticket than him.  I told him it was because I am way more important and he stormed off and we didn't talk for a few months.

So we all go to the fight whihc is a nightmare at Caesars back then cause everyone goes through the same turnstile.  There is only one turnstiles for about 20,000 people.  Unreal.  It was allot of fun and all I remember the most is how much everyone booed when they announced Hearns as the winner.  After the fight we walked back to the Barbary.  Joe and the others played a little at Caesars.  I didn't want to.

So that is another Vegas story.  SOrry for being so long but Ihave a hard time making stories short.  And I know I left out some stuff.

hahaha... Another..

onlyme:
Okay here is another one of my quick stories.  After a fight at the MGM we decided to play at Ballys.  Now, when I play with Uncle it is usually at one of the Coast properties.  I played at the Rio and Caesars but that's it.  Well like I should have known, they knew my uncle very well at this place too.  Now Ballys is packed.  He has to go do something so he tells me to go scout out a table and see which one is hot.  So I go scoutin and I see a table that is very loud.  Here is a hint to anyone out there.  If you here allot of yelling going on at a table, that ususally means they people are winning there.  That is a hot table.  So I observe a little and I notice it is hot table but the people are playing nickels and quarters ($5 and $25 chips)Well right off the bat I know that the stickman is going to have trouble cause he was having trouble paying out winnings when the people are only betting a few dollars.  he is going to have a heart attack when he has to start payng out thousands of dollars.

Well my uncle and the entouarge show up.  He asks me how is it oing and I show him that table.  It is right in front of a major walkway where just hundreds of people are passing by every few minutes.  SO he decided this is the table to play.  The pit bosses come over and say hi and whatever.  Well right away my uncle starts.  He ALWAYS has to play on the end of table.  Well the guy on the other end is rolling.  Right off the bat he places $500 on the line.  The guy rolls an 8.  He right away bets $5200 across.  He almost always presses the numbers 3 times.  He bets $100 on all the hard ways.  And does his regular $25 acee/ duecee.  He bets allot of off table bets too.  Well the guys rolls a 7 on his first roll.  My uncle got so pissed so fast. 

Anyway, it was his turn to roll.  Now, right after he lost that money and the guy rolled a 7 he looks at me and says something like, "I thought you said this was a fucking hot table.  Ijust shrugged my shoulders.  ANyway it's his turn to roll.  To make this short he held the dice for about 10 minutes and probably made about $20,000 or so.  Well now it's my turn.  I told him not to bet on me but he did.  Well I 7 out to and now he is pissed even more.

Anyway, the dice took a trip around the table a couple times.  He was making a ton of money and I was doing okay too.  Richard Roundtree was with us and everyone was asking him for his autograph.  We have quite a crowd around us now becuase the money was flying.  By this time.  Allot of people had to leave because my uncle had the minimum raised on the table.  Allot of the people were holdng up the table by betting slow and shit.  Plus the stickman was getting really nervous casue he took so long to pay out.  My uncle knows exactly how much he is getting paid on every roll.  He tells the stickman what to pay and he pays it.

The pit bosses just watch cause they know he knows what he is doing.  Anyway, the dice get around to me.  I skipped my last turn.  Anyway, I roll.  I hit a hard 8.  So my uncle decides to bet on me.  So he sticks out a whole ton of money.  I was so scared cause if I do bad he gets really pissed at me.  We to make a long story short.  I held the dice for 40 minutes.  He made over $100,000 and I did pretty good too with my $12,000.  Well in the middle of my roll we had a problem.  My uncle told the guy what to pay and he took a little to long to pay and then gave him a short amount.  Well now he is really pissed.  Then I roll the number.  Well the stickman thought I sevened out.  He started taking down all the chips.  Well all hell broke lose.  My uncle is yelling andliterally grabbed the stick and broke it.  Then the pit bosses came over.  Well my unlce is pissed enough to tell the pit bosses to call some guy.  I found out later it was the GM.  Now it is around 1:00am.  The GM is at home.  They call him and they give the phone to my uncle and he is yelling.  Then he throws the phone on the table.  Well, about 2 minutes later I think every pit boss and other boss was there to calm him down.  They then whispered something in the stickmans ear.  He then gets up and leaves.  I later found out he was fired.

Anyway, this night was something else. It was very profitabloe for everyone. I have one more Ballys story.  It involved my uncle closing the table to everyone except us.  Now that was a night.

One more?

onlyme:
Okay one that involves former strongman, UFC fighter and now politician Tony Halme.  I think I told this one so sorry if a repeat.  I will try to keep it short.  A friend of ours had a t-shirt design compnay in LA.  I get a call from him to come to his office.  I get there and he comes out to meet me with a black eye.  I ask him what happened and he tells me.  He apparently designed and made some golf shirts for a car dealership in Las Vegas for there annual Golf event. 

While he is telling me this I notice a hole in hs wall in the office.  Apparently the car dealership still operates like in the old days and sent out a hit man to rough up my friend.  He put his head through the wall and hit him a few times.  On top of that my friend said he was about 60 years old but very big.

Anyway, my friend put together all these shirts (about 3 or 4 dozen) and sent them to the dealership.  Well they said they were wrong and wanted them done over.  Now mind you no payment has been made yet and the design was signed off on the order he showed me.  But, it appeared they made a change when they say them and wanted them done over with the changes.  Well my friend said no problem but that the ad to pay for those since they ordered them and approved them.  They said no so my friend said no to ding anymore work before getting paid for these.  The total bill was around a grand I think.

Anyway, he want to pay me and Tony to go to Vegas and tell this guy never come back to see my friend.  So, me and Tony drove to Vegas.  Now we get there (the place is called Falconi Honda) and we are standing in the entrance looking around.  Now Tony is very mean looking with a shaved head and an arrow shaved in it, tattoos and is about 6'4" 330 lbs with a very heavy Arnold type accent.  I am small at 6'1" about 300 lbs.

This guys comes up and asks us if he can help us I say yea we're looking for Mr. Falconi.  He points over to one of those cubicle offices spaces.  We start heading over there.  There is this guy behind the desk.  Tony asks Are you Falconi? (remeber in a heavy Arnold accent) he says yes I can help you after I am done with these folks.  Tony says you are done with them now.  He then grabs the girl and guys and tells them to go outside and wait.  The guy stand up from behind the desk and before he can say anything Tony shoves him back in his seat.  Nw I am standing in the opening making sure no one comes in.  One guy comes over and asks if there is a problem.  I say something like Not yet gett outta here.  Well now Tony has his hands on this guy and he says who are you guys.  Tony says none of your business all you need to knwo is if you come or send anyone else to LA to see Jerry we will come back to see you.  All this time Tony is on the side of the desk with this guy with a handful of shirt.  The guy is shitting.  Anyway, Tony asked if he understood and he said yea.  He also said something like do you know who I am. Then I say.  Yea you are some small time mob fuck who has nothing better to do than beat up a guy for some shirts.  Is the mob business that slow.  Then Tony said remember what I say.  Don't come back. 

So on the way out I notice a hottie is working behind the frnt desk.  I ask her for her phone number before Tony grabs me and says lets go.  So I had to leave empty handed.  And nothing else ever came of this incident.  Anyway, that was a small part of my experience with the mob.  I have one more that involves allot of REAL mobsters at the Rio and Pete G and Stunt.  That is a funny story.  Later
