She had a 5g bag hidden under the mattress after I left the room and another night hid my rolling papers somewhere in the couch so I couldn't smoke a j

If this skank doesn't care what anyone thinks, why does she write a manifesto instructing people on how to view her?
Attention, she needs it. To feel important. She cares what people think, the problem is, like most attention craving people today, they only want to hear the positives, nothing negative or even constructive, for that means that her initial thoughts need improving. Then it's "mind your business, hater". But, you made your business, my business, once you put it out there.

I dumped her a month ago was looking through my phone constantly and hiding my weed so I got rid of her
hiding your weed is a very serious offense...going through your phone, not so much.

It's always the ice machine that will give you away, right Bob Chick?
Quote
He could've used a little more luck. Newly installed in the Pine Tree kitchen, hidden behind the ice machine, was a military-grade motion detector. The device remained silent in the kitchen but sounded an alarm in the home of Sergeant Terry Hughes, a game warden who'd become obsessed with catching the thief. Hughes lived a mile away. He raced to the camp in his pickup truck and sprinted to the rear of the dining hall. He peeked in a window.

Benfatto was too short, and out of proportion because of his large head. Something common to midgets.
Shawn Ray didn't like his look. I think it was something about his delts.
Add in Charles Chairmonte to the mix as well.

My definition of "curvy". There will always be a certain problem when the other sex defines what they are in terms of body type and attractiveness. Just like guys with fatceps and potbellies calling their builds "athletic".

Her Twitter rant


"haters"? She must actually have done something to have haters.
That article must have boosted her ego to the nth degree.

One day Kai will pen his memoirs. And the title will be called "Under The White Towel: The Life and Memoirs of Kai Greene"

Your a fucking ignorant moron.

If you think this shit is scandal worthy I hope you burn in hell and fucking die you old shit.

It's 2014, and bodybuilding isn't a sport for children, so please drop that hypocritical prude nonsense, they are athletes they don't owe you some image of moral perfection.

The gay thing is simple two issues.

A) Being able to relate to your target audience is key for marketing purposes. Your height, race, orientation, nationality, height, and bodyframe type all directly correlate to who's gonna be buying your shit. So it's a numbers game, you pick a narrow guy, a brit, a midget, bitch hips, black, bald or gay your gonna alienate a potential audience.

The trick is targeting the audience that can grow the sport. Each Mr O, had a fan base that directly correlates to one of those groups. The question is would a gay Mr O grow the sport? A gay jay cutler type likely not, however Kai has some dynamic qualities about him that I think could potentially grab a massive audience from the diversity folk. Our sport is one of freaks, targeting the champions of freaks LGBT, could potentially give a level of untouchable legitimacy that the classic era could only dream of.


B) The other potential issue which is far more serious, is the allegations that many BBers are pressured into G4P in order to get the level of sponsorship necessary to finance massive drug stacks. There's not much the IFBB can do about it once the issues arises.


This is why I said that Phil should tap into his basketball roots. He has the image to do so, if only he had some type of agent that could help him with say, Under Armour, Adidas, or Reebok. Reebok has a Crossfit shoe, and Crossfit is way younger than weight training/bodybuilding. Crossfit is a new fad. And actually that shoe could have been marketed as a weight training shoe--- the Phil Heaths. That was a golden opportunity.


I like Kai, but his image is not ideal---and probably not even with the LGBT community. Because Fruit.
He is well spoken, thoughtful, artistic, and even has a sort of charisma to him. But, his past gets in the way.

"TALEEB STARKES, AUTHOR: I would want some diversity. There's no diversity in the black community. It's pretty much its just in our DNA to be one way, and if you're not that way, you're not (quote, unquote) "black." And I would start there, because a lot of these kids are so urbanized, if you bring anything new or different outside of sports, hip hop, those two things mainly, you may be frowned upon, and that's what I would change. What I'd like to do is get the kids out, let them see other things. Outside of the city. Again, they're so urbanized, it's foreign."

The first thing that came to my mind when I read this was that scene in the Chris Rock movie I Think I Love My Wife where the character played by Kerry Washington accuses Chris Rocks character of having Ni#@#er ears when she goes through the music on his Ipod.
I agree but disagree.
Black folk are very diverse. From the Northern, Southern, Mid-West, West, East, different styles, and dialects and thinking. Add in the African, Latin, Caribbean, and you have differences as well. And let's not go into the diverse hues. In some instances black people are monolithic, in others not so much.

Add in the fact that the black urban trends are what young America as whole tend to follow, and that pretty all popular music today can trace it's roots to black music, and that jazz is hailed as the first true original American musical form, I'd say that it is the black culture that has taught America how to diversify.

Taleeb Starkes gets it.




ADAM CAROLLA: Taleeb Starkes, good to see you.

TALEEB STARKES: Same here. Thanks for the invite.

CAROLLA: Yeah, so tell us about the book.

STARKES: Well, the book is a result of desperate times causing desperate measures. And at this time black people must confront the subculture that exists within our community. A lot of times we place the appearance of racial solidarity over racial reality and that is to the detriment of the community at large.

CAROLLA: What is your background?

STARKES: I would with juvenile delinquents and dependents and I was born and raised in the conditions that most people use as excuses for their dysfunctional criminal behavior. So I am able to identify it and say that's bullshit. Being poor doesn't excuse poor behavior at no level.

CAROLLA: Well how -- I feel like it is such a hot button issue which is whitey doesn't want to say shit because we'll just be crucified. I mean, I say shit all the time but everybody thinks I'm an asshole already. But there is a lot of people who want to remain on the happy side of this. They're really not saying I believe what they're thinking or they're being truthful. And so white folk are staying out of it, every other color is saying out of it. It's not like the Jews or the Asians are weight in. Whitey is going to stay out of this. So it's the black community, you guys work this out and then if you're a member of the black community and you start speaking out you can get sort of, pardon the pun, blackballed and you can end up with Bill Cosby somewhere. So how do you deal with that?

STARKES: Well, the name-calling, I mean, my wife calls me worse when I don't put down the toilet seat. It doesn't bother me. But here's the problem, this is a black issue and we need to step up and police our own communities. When I was writing the book it was difficult because I knew whenever black pathologies are mentioned, the average black person says, 'Well, what about what people?' So I talk about black crime, 'What about what crime?' Talk about welfare dependency, 'What about white people?'

So, while writing I sort of had to create a white -- I had to separate whites into groups. I had to create whites, wiggers, white trash. And I had to put blacks, blacks [with] guy tendencies, and guys. And so I compared whites-blacks, yes they have problems, we have problems. But the underclass isn't the face of white people. And you know with black people I think it's the opposite, the black underclass is the face of the black race in America.

ALISON ROSEN: That's so interesting, why do you think that is do you think?

STARKES: Because we put like -- we're just sympathizers, naturally. And then you get the race hustlers who come in and key in on that.

CAROLLA: Right. So what you're saying is we have the sort of Honey Boo Boos, but we make fun of the Honey Boo Boos. In the white community we all make fun of their copious use of mayonnaise, which is my rap name anyway, with a Z. But that culture is hillbilly, whitetrash, having sex with your cousin, Deliverance, all that stuff, and Honey Boo Boo, and we make fun of that, but it's not the face of our culture.

STARKES: Exactly.

CAROLLA: But you're saying the subculture in the black community is the face of the culture.

STARKES: Yes, and that's the issue. With that role reversal it's an uphill battle that I'm facing, and I know that, but with Dr. Cosby lending his support for this mission I felt like I was on the right path.

CAROLLA: Why do feel like everyone turned on Bill Cosby so strongly in the black community?

STARKES: Because white people were listening. You're not supposed to say that in front of white people. We're supposed to -- because white people don't know what's happening in our community despite being in the information age and the internet.

CAROLLA: In the black community he was beloved, right? I mean before he got into pull your pants up and speak English, right?

STARKES: Yeah.

CAROLLA: And then everyone just turned on him. I don't know what his status is today.

STARKES: I'm going to venture to say it's the same. If you have a love/hate relationship with Bill Cosby.

###

ADAM CAROLLA: When you had the great Bishop Don Juan's magic wand, and you could just wave it over the black community, what would you wish for?

TALEEB STARKES, AUTHOR: I would want some diversity. There's no diversity in the black community. It's pretty much its just in our DNA to be one way, and if you're not that way, you're not (quote, unquote) "black." And I would start there, because a lot of these kids are so urbanized, if you bring anything new or different outside of sports, hip hop, those two things mainly, you may be frowned upon, and that's what I would change. What I'd like to do is get the kids out, let them see other things. Outside of the city. Again, they're so urbanized, it's foreign.

It worked for me as a kid. I got to see different things: trees, different place, it worked for me.

CAROLLA: Well, how did you get yourself out of that?

STARKES: I moved to upstate New York when I turned 18.

CAROLLA: And saw your first tree? Why is that weed so fat, mommy?

STARKES: I got to see different people. And then you realize that another part of you has to be developed. Mentally. And you're not challenged in the inner city, except staying alive, maybe.

CAROLLA: So, what does "whitey" do about all this? No one wants to talk about anything, no one wants to judge. No one wants to point any fingers. Everyone just kind of sits back. Again, you'll be crucified. And this notion, that I think is sort of racist, just conceptually, of you can't talk about a group unless you're a member of that group. I don't understand that in of itself feels racist. You're allowed to have opinions about any group that you like, including your own, but not just including your own. There's negative and positive things that people have about Asians and Hispanics and Blacks and Jews, and I don't get it, we're not entitled to express those. Why you have to just simply comment on your own. By the way, as a white person, our own is boring, we'd much rather pick apart others.

STARKES: When Eric Holder said we've become a nation of cowards, blah blah blah, we need to talk about race more. The NAACP applauded that. You guys don't want an actual conversation, you guys want a monologue.

CAROLLA: Who is 'you guys'?

STARKES: The NAACP. And everyone that applauded that statement he made. You guys don't want a conversation, because with that comes some ugly truths, some statistics, some hate crime facts, et cetera. And they don't want that. They want a monologue, they want control of the dialogue, and Eric Holder, his speech put him in the drivers seat, as far as being the official race hustler in my mind.

CAROLLA: Are we moving in the wrong direction. I think all of us, I speak for all white people, when we elected Obama, we all felt like okay good, now we can put this ugly chapter behind us, because were certainly progressive enough to elect the first black president, and now they'll be no more cries of racism, and I feel like the last six years or so, seven years, it felt like either we're moving backwards, or there's just more news.

STARKES: Listen. White people are inherently racist. Even the "hope and change" whites with the bumper stickers on the car, and "we love Obama." As seen with the Ferguson riots, whenever the black people have this spontaneous combustion, the "hope and change" whites, the other white liberals, you're targeted because you're white, and that's just what it is. And I always wondered, with the teachers in inner cities, they walk such a fine line, because they are one action away from being called racist. If you tell a kid "sit down" too harshly, you know, the parent that never came to the PTA meeting will be there like "why you tryin' to tell me son to sit down with that kind of authoritative tone?" That's kind of. "What is he a boy to you? Is he, you're a racist!" (Adam Carolla Show, August 18, 2014)
I agree and I have been saying this.

He would get a lot more women if he trained with fruits....
They were only there for the photo. They know that he wasn't worthy because he doesn't train with fruits first. A man who knows his fruit, and trains with selected fruits is a man who is not to be trifled with.
He is ahead of the curve.

the part where his friend told the story of coming to his house depressed about how he looked and posing in his friends mirror

"damn bertil you look great"

"i only look great in your mirror not in mine"


that's some serious mental illness Grin
I believe that was Rick Wayne, the 1970s Shawn Ray. And to be honest, I'd rather look like Rick Wayne back in his heyday than Bertil Fox in his.

Yup I learn a lot from him, just this small angles etc work for me just tweaking my tricep training in accordance to his videos ,worked for me
Shawn Ray was the same way. You come away from the video actually feeling like you learned something.
Funny how you said Kali was more hardcore I his early vids, well before he even competed. He was working out in small gyms and was smaller.
20  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: EZ Curl Bars on: August 25, 2014, 03:23:27 PM

i lived with 2 brazilian familys in N.Jersey n they treated me really good, i lived with my girl,her mom n dad,her aunt,her grandma and her sister n her lesbian lover. the mother n grandmother could cook really good,im talking really good, they where always nice to me n treated me better than my own family to b honest. most brazilians r very nice people, i cant say anything bad about them,the family i lived with was great. only thing that was strange is her door was broke n me n my girl would be fuckin hard on the bed n the father would walk in and start talking to her about something like the weather n im like what the fuck n stop,my girls like its ok keep going he dont mind he likes u ???so he would take a seat n watch us fuck,then the grandmother came in n started smiling acting like she was rocking a baby n smiling at us,i took that as she wanted me to knock my girl up so she can play with a baby Shocked,i used to see the sister n her lesbian girlfreind fucking in the living room sometimes n they knew i was watching n didnt even care, id b behind the curtain jerking off watching them Cheesy
So, this man would be watching you eff his daughter? That man had some unresolved issues regarding his daughter and maybe even you.

That is some halariously dysfunctional is right there.

i saw the documentary on bertil and his friend said bertil was always secretive about how long he had been training because it was embarrassing to him how long he had trained to get where he was

They showed him as a kid, he wasn't all that big. Just a typically looking kid. The ultimate problem with Bertil was he was massively insecure. Like he was trying to defeat the little boy inside of himself, when really he never grew up emotionally.

i enjoy doing skull crushers on the smith machine lately,u can really focus bigtime on the movement n u dont need a spotter.i set the safety things right at my forehead so if i slip or anything my SKULL wont get CRUSHED,better safe than sorry and at my age a injury can really set me back awhile n time aint exactly on my side Sad
I like Phil Heath's angled tricep extension. He takes two dumbells, has the bench angled, and does the movement.

Or one from an old Kali Muscle vid--he lies with his upper body on the bench, and I think his arm over his chest and he does a tricep extension. You remember that vid Mes?

25  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: EZ Curl Bars on: August 25, 2014, 01:45:55 PM
yes, but that bar is better suited for tricep training
The super curly ones typically don't have knurling on the inside bends or curls, where most people place their hands for skull crushers. Also, the extreme curl makes it awkward---to me, (I picked one up in the store to do a tricep extension) for anybody doing tricep work. I think the best compromise for tricep work is the bar with medium bends.
