You know, Getbiggers are usually morality challenged when it comes to what they post about others. However, when they see something they don't approve of they bag that person mercilessly. And so Derek Anthony gets bagged even after he is dead. Whatever for? As Zorba the Greek said, it doesn't matter if someone is good or bad we are all food for worms after we are dead. That should be the attitude here. Those who were close to young Derek will miss him. Others could care less. That will be true for all of us. In the end, no one is really better than anyone else. We are all just individuals having a go at this miracle called life. Derek lived his dream and good for him.

I could interpret Zorba's words to reinforce an essential pointlessness of possessing any morality, in life.

I could interpret Zorba's words to indicate that Derek is wormfood and is not particularly in need of any sense of moderated speech on his character.

What you posted is essentially faux politically correct nonsense - it is a tradition to not speak ill of the dead and nothing more.  That I have not is my choice - but I do not begrudge any who have, as I recognise that with this being a smaller corner of the internet and the internet being effectively full of upsetting material for his family, already - there is less emphasis on it being particularly negative to add to that.

I repeat to you, Vince, you do not remember how Derek came - I do, he came here to advertise his member website for homosexuals to watch him pose on camera.  Why is it surprising that he encountered resistance to using getbig as commercial platform for this?  Are you really surprised that someone who did that (and received quite vehement hate) became disliked?  Again, I couldn't care less, myself - I'm just saying - don't act like this guy has "suffered" like you.  He was a parasite on the bodybuilding industry when he came here and if you think that's anything like people being mean to you, because you happen to be old - you're wrong.  If someone came to your gym and put up signs that said "calling all fags, come look at me posing on camera for money", you'd be pretty quick smart setting him on his way.  That's how Derek appeared here.  It is important for people to remember this, because some people actually think that Derek didn't start this stuff.  He did - and that's why Ron hasn't done shit to remove this thread.

Derek Springer/Anthony

Derek was always an interesting character on Getbig and elsewhere in the bodybuilding community. The dude was both crazy and fearless. He did and said what he pleased and took the consequences. So he lived his dream and for many years everything seemed sweet. He didn't take shit from anyone and handed the same out by the shovel full. He never backed away from a confrontation and agreed to meet various internet tough guys to sort things out. Yes, when you are outspoken like Derek you make some enemies....but many supporters, too, because bodybuilding is an asskissing cult where insecure blokes lift weights and do whatever it takes to win titles, etc. Derek was on some radio shows and was such an interesting character that people were entertained when he let loose with all manner of obscenities. The confrontation with Goodrum was a classic. Those two seemed to  hate each other as only Venom Vince can both instigate and sustain. Instead of fighting when they met at the Olympia several years ago, Derek took pity on Goodrum and spit on him instead of punching him. That putdown will remain forever on Goodrum's forehead! In the end, no one won because Derek didn't really live long enough to make his words have validity. He told Goodrum he would rather be himself than what Goodrum was. Those were strong words. So Melvin retorted that Derek would soon be dead and that was an accurate prediction.

When I remember how Derek conducted himself on Getbig I really wonder why so many seemed to dislike and even hate him. Derek knew this and even posted a video to all the haters who live in their mom's basement. He singlehandedly dispatched the Godfather from Getbig and that showed good detective work. Well, maybe he had some help. The point is Derek feared no man and he survived on the forums no matter what anyone said about him. The plain truth is very few on Getbig post as themselves. We all knew who Freakycalves was. Derek had a past where he posed for men for money. The flotsam equated that with gay4pay. Derek denied it was any such thing. Who knows and who cares? It was many years ago. The trouble is whatever was done in the past can linger forever if you are a controversial person on the net. I always found Derek to be outrageously funny. He did know how to have a good laugh and he could laugh at himself. I found him to be a likable bloke.

Let's talk about Derek's physique. The guy sure looked good in the past. Before he died we really couldn't tell because he became an illustrated man with all those tattoos. Why some guys cover a nice build with tattoos is a mystery to me but as Lee Priest said he just likes them. People accused Derek of using oil to increase the dimensions of his muscles. Perhaps he did. He admitted this year that he had made several mistakes and some of them impacted on his health. The flotsam felt Derek was crazy to the end because he tried to sustain the size of his muscles. The sideshow that was Derek ground to a crawl this year when he had to be hospitalized for serious problems. Once cancer was found in his liver things looked bad. He then had to postpone any kidney transplant and Derek never survived to get that gift. What a shame.

I suppose we can look at Derek's life and consider him foolish. Well, the cult known as Getbig embraces taking shortcuts to the buff look. Derek just took more risks and sustained them much longer than was healthy. We saw how he valued his family and in the end Derek was just another guy who lifted weights to look better. I don't think anyone should blame him for his short life. He took risks and knew there were side effects. Derek more or less died for us bitches! Rest in peace, Derek Springer.

Vince, you're probably wondering why nobody has commented on this.

Nobody has read it.

I'm going to translate for you, though - as I have.

Getbig Brethren,

Vince would once again, like you to know that he has his real name on here and has been the victim of some abuse by "anonymous" agents of satan - and that you're all scallywags and cowards and whatnot.

Vince is so disappointed with this ongoing phenomena, that he has chosen to align himself with someone who deliberately came to this board to drum up support for his heterosexual website, on which he charged money to homosexuals to stare at his body, as he posed for heterosexual webcam sessions.   

Vince doesn't really know what happened when Derek first arrived (in fact, few were here and even fewer would remember), but I assure you Vince, the adversity you might have suffered, here is entirely different to that of Derek - who was most definitely coming here to suck in homosexual lurkers to his website.  At one point, he felt it pertinent to post the email address of one of his customers, whom he believed to be also a getbig hater.

Now, it's probably a bit rich to wish death on those who attempt to exploit this board for commercial interests - but when they employ shockjock tactics on the thunderdome, they're probably going to cop a bit of abuse in the bargain.

Yes, perhaps we should put a disclaimer on every page to ensure they do not read further.

I propose the DA - TA chat log.

That'll keep them from going too far down the rabbit hole.

55  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: RIP Derek Anthony on: December 14, 2013, 09:22:19 PM
Wow, that was pretty bad. I don't remember posting this. I wish I could take it back now.

Too late, bro.

You killed Derek Anthony

Your best bets are IRC DCC send bots or the gopher protocol.

Napster has been a bit quiet lately and my sources say that the most underground way of sharing at the moment is secretly encoded in the fine art of bit mining.

57  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: RIP Derek Anthony on: December 13, 2013, 06:06:17 AM
If a person deserves respect - they deserve it when they are alive.

When they are dead, the concept of deserving respect is moot (depending on beliefs and such).

The concept of a message board on the internet respecting somebody is something akin to "delusions of grandeur".   On a message board, you give respect if the person wasn't overly a cnut, because actually, your respect is worthless and therefore, not really worth obsessing over.  They will never know of your text based respect.  You are making an empty gesture. 

I give respect to Derek because I can kind of see that he was of limited intellect and most of the vile stuff he wrote was his misguided idea of trying to be visceral, in the face of superior opponents.

But there's no way I would begrudge the voodoo master from his moment in the sun.

Derek wrote vile things to people and if they took them literally, there's no coming back from that - no respect in living or death.  That I choose to shrug it off is my prerogative, not other people's.

I actually really enjoyed Derek's getbig hate video - I like him more after remembering that.  I think he's bang on.  I was here when he arrived and he got nothing but hate and he gave it back (which as the more pragmatic on this board will agree - is the double standard we live by - we'll be dicks, if you're a dick back, you're a fool).

58  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: A little something for Vince Basile on: December 13, 2013, 05:42:36 AM
baha, that's absolutely hilarious
59  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: RIP Derek Anthony on: December 12, 2013, 06:12:15 AM
I haven't watched that video in a while.

It's amusing as hell and pretty well spoken.

I mean, if you compare him to say.. err cswol, he does a decent job of stating his case.

60  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Galeniko, How is that Kidney doing? on: December 12, 2013, 05:52:30 AM
ta had bacne and gyno

ive seen the pics

end of argument

are you saying that he lost 70 lbs from a natural weight

come on

Argument restarted Smiley

I dropped 50 pounds from my 230 and could have gone further (and would have had to, to get as lean as he was)

So yes, absolutely.

If you've not been 25% bodyfat natural at 230 and tried to diet down all in one go, you wouldn't know what you're talking about. 

I do, because I've done it and I'm telling you, what he looks like in those pics and where he got to, I see no reason to agree with anything you say.  The gyno would have been obvious when he was lean - it wasn't.  Nobody was giving him shit about gyno (that I recall).

That being said, you're totally entitled to your opinion, but some of your reasons (being solid, looking large and being strong) are completely invalid and the gyno one is better judged when he was fully dieted down (unless you're implying he had gyno surgery to win a $100 supplement voucher or whatever the hell it was for first prize Roll Eyes)

61  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Galeniko, How is that Kidney doing? on: December 12, 2013, 04:05:15 AM
i think you are the best get bigger ever  Cool

but i also think you are full of shit

you are on something in these pics

you are fat and solid doesnt happen naturally

ultimately who gives a fuck you dont even look like you train now

but you did get in tremendous shape in the past

so props for that  Smiley

Ultimately, your opinion is wrong in this case.

I too have been 230 natural and looked extremely solid and was pulling the requisite large deads.

If you're prepared (or genetically able) to eat like a pig, you can be large, as a natural.  

You'll also be a fat pig, though.

(I too ponder what would happen for me on gear as I have reached pretty respectable strength levels as a natural and I imagine it'd be even better with some help).
62  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Looking Back - Blasts from the past on: December 12, 2013, 03:24:05 AM
Great Kovacs story.

63  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: RIP Derek Anthony on: December 11, 2013, 06:29:16 AM
Still neutral???  Some of the stuff he threatened was so bad that if it was all made to light, his family would just throw him in a ditch and rot

I agree wholeheartedly that he wrote some very vile things.  I'm only "neutral" in the context of whether I would react the same as you have.

I'm still highly amused and entertained by what you've written, so far Smiley

64  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Haven't been on getbig for some time, whats this I hear?.... on: December 11, 2013, 05:39:55 AM
Being racist has always been bannable.  You just have to be good at it.  The legendary Sir Duchaine was ejected many times due to this.  I'm not sure if he still lives on Matt C's board - but that's where I believe he was at last check. 

He should come back - he is a top fellow and I think many of the newer breed of eloquent gentleman would enjoy his wit.  His novella, regaling Kevin Levrone himself (Holly Wood), here - of Kevin's role in a rather unfortunate case of a vomitus is one of the truly classic posts on getbig.

65  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: RIP Derek Anthony on: December 11, 2013, 02:48:16 AM
I remain neutral to Vince's reaction.

Particularly after reading that TA-DA chatlog

Pretty despicable, really.

I liked Derek, don't think he deserved his fate  - but I wouldn't go as far as to say that he doesn't deserve to have some of his enemies, not exactly "respectful" upon his death.  This thread has played out pretty much how I thought it would.  Most of us just feel sorry for the guy - but a few people experienced negative aspects of the guy, above the general (and forgettable) public persona he portrayed.

66  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: RIP Derek Anthony on: December 10, 2013, 08:19:07 AM
I think he liked you Vince.  He gave you attention and a lot of it.  That's not hate. 

I'd say spitting in his face (which Derek did) was fairly hateful.

Who knows who started the DA - VG war, with Ron's incessant deleting of threads, like much of getbig history, it is now a mystery.
67  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: RIP Derek Anthony on: December 10, 2013, 08:02:03 AM

I just think I should call the funeral home he's being carted to to warn them not to use any electric cutter or cremate him......Lord know with all that fucking oil in him, a good spark could blow up the whole building or some shit.... Undecided

Hah, ahhh it's good to be alive, isn't it Smiley
68  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: RIP Derek Anthony on: December 10, 2013, 07:55:22 AM
So who's next....Basile, you want a fucking piece of Vince Goodrum?Huh  I got plenty of voodoo dolls left on my shelf.


Okay, you absolutely have to change your avatar image to this:

69  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: RIP Derek Anthony on: December 10, 2013, 07:53:44 AM

I thought I was going to dance on his grave when he croaked.....I think I'm just going to drink my coffee, read the paper, and watch last night's episode of The Daily Show.  I don't wish to waste anymore thing even thinking about this piece of shit. 

RIP will be missed, but not by me

P.S....whenever I die, I hope you people aren't sobbing or doing any pathetic blubbering.  I never gave any mercy and I don't expect or want any in the end.

Great stuff.

Another one bites the dust. 

Who next?

Paul Walker is in Heaven right now.

Unfortunately we can't say the same for most GB'ers when they bite the bullet.

<a href="" target="_blank"></a>

We can most definitely say that "Devon97" possesses a limited intellect and as such, invests himself in hare-brained, antiquated insurance schemes, in the hope that his mediocrity will be thusly rendered moot, when he finally ascends to the pearly gates to take his place next to his vengeful, spiteful god, who demands to be surrounded and loved by only the unthinking and illogical. 

71  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: RIP Derek Anthony on: December 10, 2013, 07:34:08 AM
PIP Derek.

I logged in after what? 2 years just to post this. He was an idiot, but this is way to young to go. We had some good times here on GB with him.

Rest in Peace, Derek.

I was thinking that - before

This guy could actually bring back the getbig dead

I was wondering if the goat may make an appearance, but I believe he might actually be in timeout.
72  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Who is the creepiest poster on get big on: December 10, 2013, 07:31:11 AM
They broke up four times without ever meeting.

Still, all this time on, I can never stop laughing about that.

Haha, jesus.

I mean, I have seen that happen a lot on IRC when I was like 15, but adults?
73  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Would you like to donate a dollar to.... on: December 10, 2013, 07:22:18 AM
I have worked in a fundraising department.

Tough business, that.  Total hustle.  

Good money in bequests, mostly - but you can't really budget around that.

You have to do all this awful direct mail, buying lists, dealing with lists, writing sappy stories etc.  

The vogue, these days is to outsource it to shithead companies that pay young women to stand in malls and accost men and old people into "signing up" for monthly contributions - not even a change tin at the desk, because it's illegal for them to take money Roll Eyes

Meanwhile, it takes roughly a year (no joke) for the first dollar of yours to get to that charity.  

About once every three months there will be a couple of these lasses, there, sitting at a desk that is strategically placed, as usual, such that there is abso-fucking-lutely no escape from ignoring these cnuts and one of them will be a mouthy bitch who thinks being adversarial to my disinterested brushoff might just land her food on her table.  That I don't like.  

I have at times pulled my phone out and done a ringtone with my mouth, good times Grin

Nah - he's the guy who bought those err.. souvenir shorts afterwards Grin
75  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: RIP Derek Anthony on: December 10, 2013, 06:49:47 AM
Quite enjoyed that chat log, TA, masterful eloquence in the face of a barrage of just, awful nonsense.

.. And we're still yet to hear from one of the voodoo who do what you don't do (buggery and so forth), people - VG

I feel bad for the guy.  I feel bad for anybody who has hopes for the future that are constantly dashed with the will of something external occurring (not that he didn't reap what he sowed).  There must have been a lot of dark moments these last few years and if you think him smiling like a cheshire cat in hospital, with his family in pictures and videos etc has all to do with him being demented into thinking he's going to beat his health problems - you don't understand the dynamics of what happens when this shit occurs.   I had a fair bit of respect for how this guy dealt with his health problems (externally - the oil err yeah) because I see he did what was necessary to try to deal with the worst part of all of this.  The family, it destroys them.  They have to watch the end of someone.  It's an absolute nightmare.   

Derek was a douchebag for a while on getbig many years ago (not so much in recent memory, he had basically mellowed to self aware).  He was a douchebag for putting oil into his body.

What he wasn't a douchebag about, was how he dealt with his sickness and appeared to do his best to protect his family from the sobering truth.  Anybody who has experienced the decline and demise of someone in their family will attest - the effects are absolutely brutal.


Reaped what he sowed, but at least minimised the hurt to his family.

Expose me "Thick Nick".

Please, expose me.

Can we see the muff, please?
