I suppose that you overlooked the post where I pointed out that the magazine (which is a quarterly and hardly a money pit) is the bridge to the website. I know better than most people how the print industry has taken multiple hits due to the Internet from working in it for over a decade. So I am not putting all my eggs in that basket, but rather just having it as one arm, - albeit, a small one - of my company's message.

And the magazine is also available via an online version, so it is not the print aspect of it that we are even focusing on.

So I don't know where you get your brick wall idea from, as well as the stupid and stubborn remarks.

But you're certainly entitled to your opinion and I respect it.
Oh, it's getbig.  All you need is a keyboard and some ideas to post here.  They don't need to make sense or have validity.  That's the beauty of the internet.

"Unfortunately, I attribute this to social media and the constant need for people to want to fit in. Most people that compete these days donít do it for themselves, but they do it for others approval."

"Everyone now is trying to be a coach with little to no knowledge"

"Social media has created a hope for everyone to think they can compete and half-ass it"

"but the constant attention whoring and people trying to be something they are not is single handedly ruining it for true competitors."

Self awareness isn't his strong point is it?

When you see his print article, a lot of the criticism and confusion as to this inaugural topic will all make total sense. I don't want to ruin it by giving the details, but this online piece was almost like a Part 1 of the total package.

Thanks. As long as I am transparent with what I'm doing, I am fine with any criticism. When people jerk other's off with a load of bullshit, they are easy targets. I like telling it like it is and am trying to surround myself with people of the same ilk.

Like the direction you are going in. Kind of like recapturing what MD was when Romano, Valentino and Palumbo wrote for the mag. Think it can work with the online mag, with a no bullshit entertaining approach.

Thanks, Ronnie. That's exactly the feel that I am going after with the old MD. That's what I got hooked on back then and want to even one-up what Blechy had since he had a say in what went on and surely capped it. I want these outspoken guys to be themselves and not be a shaky fuck like he is.

That's right, promote some total clown who is making an effort to kill himself through insane drug abuse and who hasn't achieved jack-all as a bodybuilding competitor.

Unreal.

Thank satan I decided to ditch this ridiculous industry as a career.

Does he have an exceptional physique? Is he capable of incredible feats of strength and/or performance? Does he have any appreciable writing skill, whatsoever?

It truly is the era of celebrity for folks who have basically nothing to offer in the way of a marketable talent.

It has been around since 2008 and this has been the best year by far in only the first quarter and change. So I don; think that you will get "your wish." And why do you give a fuck so much about if I can stay afloat and what the other writers may or may not be thinking?

Read the Loyd piece. It's execrable: full of grammatical errors and non sequiturs.
The funny part is how the author can be subsumed under all of his false dilemmas.

Critical judgment: Foolish guru is followed by greater-fool acolytes. Don't bother reading.

Noted some grammatical errors but what were the non sequiturs?

Loyd "argues" that social media has led to the fall of bodybuilding, but the conclusion he draws about bodybuilding's current malaise does not follow from his stated premises. He begins by pulling out of his soiled underpants the non-verifiable claim that in contradistinction to when his parents competed, when "95% of the competitors were extremely impressive Ö. nowadays you're lucky to get five percent that's [sic] impressive." Loyd attributes the decline to 5% impressiveness to premises about the negative influence of social media, with its "constant need for people to want to fit in [, competitors not competing] for themselves, but they do it for others [sic] approval [, and] most of these cases come from insecurity issues." He concludes that these factors have led to bodybuilding's deteriorating state, wherein "the sport is dying because it's not just taken seriously anymore." So let's unpack the premises as they literally appear in the piece and match them to the conclusion.

1. Bodybuilders constantly want to fit in, so they turn to social media. Therefore, only 5% of competitors are impressive and bodybuilding today is in the crapper.

2. Bodybuilding competitors seek the approval of others, so they turn to social media. Therefore, only 5% of competitors are impressive and modern bodybuilding sucks.  

3. Most of the turn to social media from 1 and 2 stem from insecurity issues, so only 5% of competitors are impressive and the contemporary sport of bodybuilding is in a state of disrepair.

As we can see, Loyd's conclusion does not follow from his stated premises (one can draw missing implications, of course, but they are still absent from the "argument"). In any case, I think that it's an impressionistic opinion piece, and a bad one. Moreover, to the author of the piece I'd ask, tu quoque much?


Oh, I see. I was sort of thinking along the same lines.

The magazine is basically an afterthought and the company's focus is on daily video content. The print magazine was never supposed to be the lead, anyway, as the digital version is free to read and has much higher numbers for obvious reasons. Our digital platforms were always key.

As far as Bostin goes, he is still one of our columnists and has fit in perfectly with our style, which is the anti-MD/FLEX.

Bostin is a controversial character but he gets people talking so that's one thing. I do appreciate his honesty too, much better than the Mike O'Hearn's treating people like they were born yesterday. Who else do you want to interview Joe? Who else do you think has interesting things to say?

your style is worthless and no one notices or cares about it
What a waste of money
All these years you could have been saving your money , but instead you were pouring it into a magazine that no one even knows exists
No one will ever collect them
Youíre not bringing us anything we couldnít get elsewhere
If your magazine stopped tomorrow-what would the world lose out on? Nothing
Itís just a stupid idea and concept
