had brains?

you post illustrates clearly, that you have the IQ of a Bangkok prostitute.

you think anybody who "doesn't have a brain" would be able to afford what you call an "expensive car"? unless they didn't earn the money...

you buy/drive a Porsche (or any other "sports car") for the experience... the sounds, the feeling, the smells, etc... why do you go on vacation? for the experience, right?

you buy a nice german sedan because they're build solid and safe.

.. but people like you will always see them as only a "status symbol" and instead of realizing you're bitter about your own failures in life, you convince yourself you're "smarter" than the guys who drive nice cars because they "don't have brains". Typical...

...the sounds, the feeling, the smells, the smiles, the ego trip......all bullshit. Most of the things we do in life are motivated by feelings and emotions, not logic and good sense.

When you are young you want the  hottest and fanciest vehicle you can get. As you get older your needs change but you still would like a fancy vehicle or two. When you get a lot older

you see cars as ego trips that cost a lot of money that could have been invested elsewhere. Most of the things we really want are bad investments.

Cars, watches, jewelry, muscles....all ego.

If bodybuilders and gym owners had brains they wouldn't buy expensive cars. Invest that luxury car money in real estate or something else.

So many want a Porsche or BMW but the novelty soon wears off.

Here is Larry Scott posing at my gym in Sydney during a seminar in 1979. It was attended by many local bodybuilders and most agree it was the best bodybuilding seminar ever put on in Australia.

Larry still had impressive arms. He told me he was going to try to enter the Olympia again. I didn't see any point in his doing that. Anyway, he placed low in an event

in Vancouver, I believe, and abandoned that quest. Larry was born in 1938 so was 41 in the photo.

Robert Nailon borrowed my negatives and I haven't seen them since!

While he is paid good money to be in movies he will do it. One wonders what is driving him nowadays. The Box Office will decide his fate.

Very true. 

Like I always say, Arnold owes it ALL to d-bol  (and probably primo, parabolin and some other goodies).   

I believe the steroid that made the champions in the seventies was Deca-durabolin. I never tried it. A LA doctor told me in Vancouver in 1970 that under his supervision I could have been a Mr Universe within 6 months.

I was in Golds for a couple of days in 1991. I guess Ed Giuliani was there but I didn't talk to him much. When I was at Golds for a whole month back in

October 1968 I got to talk to Joe, Zabo, Dave Draper, Arnold, Chuck Fautz and Seymour Koenig.

There was a funny story about one of my visits in 1991. I wanted to talk to Zabo at World Gym. I think it was in the evening. I was told he

was asleep in the cupboard. I didn't know whether he was there or not. Apparently Joe Gold didn't like Zabo sleeping on the job so

Zabo, being the resouceful guy he was, slept there and if Joe called he would be notified. I didn't get to talk to Zabo that night.

Zabo always used to say there was no gold at the end of the rainbow in bodybuilding.

Vince G CSN MFT won a trophy when he came second in a lineup of two guys. He is very proud of that trophy and achievement.

Here is the lineup with how I looked in 1970.

Pathetic, Goodrum.
9  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Two Old Farts talk about the Good Old Days on: July 22, 2014, 10:03:59 PM
I never met Ed. But I did know Zabo, Joe, Arnold, Sergio, Frank, Armand, Ray Mentzer, Seymour Koenig and a few of the other guys.

Nice to see that Eddie is still the same guy. In the old days nobody made any money...well except Joe W and Arnold and to a lesser degree Joe Gold.

The guys hung out together and the lifestyle was fun.

I wonder if Goodrum had to post in the local papers that he isn't responsible for debts not in his name?  Perhaps he was cleaned out by his ex.

He really needs to ask the advices of Getbiggers to sort this mess out. He remains in Sylva....to get his ex back? Who knows.

No TV, phone, minimal furniture and saving coupons and stamps. The government surely has to help our hapless legend.


"I have a new place and am getting things set back up along with working to pay off an exorbitant amount of bills."

If it was public housing, it would have air conditioning and heaters which it didn't.  I had to do some work when I got in......its just that Sylva is a cheap place to live because there's no real jobs around here as the majority are minimum wage.  Its a tourist trap for people who are passing by to head to Cherokee to gamble.  The lamps I got at a liquidation outlet for 8 bucks...not bad considering that they retail for 50.  The futon is from Walmart and it was 169 and the bookshelf is 17 bucks which I have 2 of them.  

The laptop is an Acer Netbook that I got from a pawn shop 2 years ago for 90 bucks.  I just erased everything and installed a fresh copy of Windows 7.


The weights were just there because I was mopping the floor.  I keep my exercise equipment set up where the dining room table should be....don't need one anyway... Grin

Why would single man live in Sylva is there are "no real jobs around"? You seem to be proud of all the money you saved on bargains. Guess you have to save up for a TV.

No....whites are more reliable in paying and sticking to agreements no matter how lopsided and unfair it is and that's where the banks count on.

Fact is that demographics make all the difference in investing and whether a bank will make a loan.  If I opened a business in the ghetto, the bank would turn me down for a fitness center but approve me right away if it was a pawn shop or a liquor store.  Same applies for opening an Applebee's in a white neighborhood. 

People can sing and dance about equality but the truth is that we're all just a bunch of nigs, crackers, spics, and slopes to these credit card companies and they work with us based on it.  That's why there's a section on credit card applications as to what race are you.

You obviously have never applied for a business loan. You need collateral to get a loan for a new business. Bank managers know that 80% of new businesses fail within 5 years and probably earlier.

If you don't own property I doubt you can get a business loan to set up a gym.

I like Kai. He does his own thing and has an incredible physique. Maybe he has to train at Bev and Steve's Gym more often!

He has to stop thinking about more size and come in cut to ribbons. Then he might get a fair go.

Buy some steel,design it yourself to what you think is best,then have it made.If you can weld,do it yourself.

Definitely a foolish thing to do even if you have a workshop. Much, much cheaper to buy used equipment.

I can buy Chinese made gym equipment cheaper than I can buy the steel and parts.

I found that designing equipment took a few goes to get it right.

We are probably moving the gym in April and yes, I may start having some machines (there, I said it)

Yes I did except that it wasn't random....he's been talking a lot of shit about me lately

There is a difference is what I do. I use material Goodrum posts and photos he gave us. For example, on a recent radio show he said he was living in a basement and didn't have any furniture. So I posted that.

He came back and said it was a two bedroom apartment. He didn't have any furniture because he doesn't use credit cards. So he has to wait until he can afford things. He always looks for bargains.

That is fair enough. However, if people had read Goodrum's stories about his business ventures you would think he would be well to do. Now we know he is battling away like many of us are. No shame in that.

He doesn't like when I post those photos that ridicule him. Heck, why on earth get up on stage with Billy Guns and make a fool of yourself? He was boasting before that appearance that he had Munzer like definition.

So when people laugh at the buffoon he retaliates by targeting me. He can't target the anonymous jokesters out there. I expect him to reply. He used to give Keith Jones as good as he got.

However, with me he has resorted to fabricating bullshit or exaggerating things that he knew about me. He has stepped over the line plenty with his defamatory remarks. Any person who continually does that

sort of thing is an asshole in my opinion. Plain and simple. Can he deny that?

By the way, I never made fun of him for his sexual orientation, nor have I made fun of his ex. Goodrum is his own worse enemy. Look at his threads. Same result whether I post in them or not. That has been

the same on Getbig for as long as I can remember.

A little about me, Vince.

I have stood in front of hundreds of people and told jokes I thought were abso-fucking-lutely hilarious at open mics and endured what can only be described as a soul destroying void of any perceivable sound, other than my own voice.  If you think being exposed on the internet is turd inducing, go experience that - that's an in your face reality check far beyond that which the internet can manifest.  

There is nothing worse than composing art, which is summarily rejected - an internet forum exposure doesn't come close to how brutal those moments were.  

I've sat outside pubs, petrified to go in and do a set that I was booked to do, because of the pure evil experienced in previous attempts to be funny.

That's shitting yourself - and I surely know it Grin

(I can laugh about it now)




Sort of amusing that you weren't that funny on stage. Maybe you need a new writer? Where can we see your act? Just wear a T-shirt with Goodrum on the front. That should help you!
18  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Goodrum showing the strain of missing Vissy publicly on: July 21, 2014, 04:01:10 AM
I have never claimed to be anything I'm not, Vince, so not really - I've always maintained that I'm a quite ugly, natural lifter with okay strength.  If I were a more strapping man, I'd have probably revealed myself - but since I am ugly enough to look at photos of myself and think "fuck, that's an ugly dude", I think it best we continue to keep it to text only Smiley


QED. Proves my point.
19  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Goodrum showing the strain of missing Vissy publicly on: July 21, 2014, 03:18:29 AM
Ridiculous post.


Most guys here, including rocket, would shit themselves if their identities were revealed on Getbig. Those of us who are known should be protected from defamers like Goodrum.

A few years ago he posted that I was a plumber in New Zealand. What a tool. He has been spreading false rumors for years and some gullible people believe him.

 Vince Basile is another annoying person who is just an old man with lots of regrets who knows that his life is a fraud with his daddy buying his gym...his Mr Canada title being self arranged, and fleeing Canada for Australia because of pending legal issues.


I try to stay off the Goodrum threads that bash hapless Melvin. I swear he is one nasty piece of human excrement. Don't you ever mention my Dad on Getbig. He was an honourable man and I won't have anyone telling lies about him. He died in 1987 at 90. Roz and I bought

our gym with a loan from a finance company in August 1971. No one gave us any money.

I didn't have to flee Canada for legal or any other reasons. I have never had a criminal record in Canada or Australia. I emigrated to Australia to find work as my wife was pregnant. I got a job teaching high school in Sydney.

I didn't arrange any title. Yes, I assisted the promoter and picked 15 independent judges most of whom I did not know personally.

Goodrum, you are defaming me here. You can't be sued for damages because I doubt you have any assets.

Please desist in spreading these lies about me. You truly are a bona fide asshole of monumental proportions.

Hey fatty......you feel better getting that shit off your (fake) chest?

Come on, let it out, repressed anger will turn into depression if you're not careful.

Wide body.

ChopperRider is another abusive person who should be banned. Unbelievable what the moderators disregard here.
