Thanks again Railing Kill for your recap and the entertainment it provides for all of us viewers who are left wondering what in the hell we just watched…

Alaskan Kush People

     I made a short video about the Alaskan Bush People and called it Alaskan Kush People. It involves all the different weed that they have grown and smoked, and a little bit of Bear and Mr. Cupcake, among others. I dubbed all the voices and put some free music streaming in the background…

     First attempt at this and will probably try more…

   I took the original opening scene and worked on the letter B to make the letter K…

or go to You Tube and view it there

 This is of course a mindless parody and satire and does not in any way try to state that any of these fools use or manufacture illegal, or in some states, legal recreational drugs. Nor does it imply that these brainless twits are being portrayed as the retarded morons that I put them in the position of being represented. Also I claim no responsibility of saying that this family of jackass, low level, ignorant, inbred, mentally impaired lunatics are the way that I choose to make them look… With that in mind, please enjoy…

Bird and the Brain promo…

For some reason, after watching the latest episode of Alaskan Bush People, and that ridiculous scene where Snowbird is calling for the peacock that seems to roam close by their house in California, I just felt an urge to make up a spin-off program called Bird and the Brain. 

    I was actually lying in bed, and it came to me, and it just made me laugh out loud. And after I put it together, I also started to laugh out loud, not very common when I am writing anything. I thought it was funny, and hope you all think so, too.

Another season Alaskan Bush people

New Season 2017…

Yep, another season of the wilderness family in Alaska. After 4 years of Alaskan Bush People we have pretty much figured out that almost everything on this show is bogus. Discovery Channel has this new season listed as season 7 (see wiki description of show here), but the show started in 2014, so 3 years later is 2017 and that just doesn’t seem to work. It seems some seasons were in the same year I guess.

 Nevertheless, the escapades and mis-fires of this family make for interesting television to watch, but the believability factor is about 0%. This season’s opener has the Alaskan Bush People in Southern California for crying out loud, and the mother has a bunch of medical tests to go through. This isn’t what I want to see, but I will watch anyway.

     The whole premise of the show is to illustrate how a family can survive in the Alaskan wilderness on their own, and from that description I wanted to see the show. After the 3rd show I started to get that nagging feeling that something was just wrong about this show, and now it is a huge joke to the people who write in the TV forums on the web, pointing out the mistakes and just plain stupidity of the situations that we are led to believe. Reality TV at its worst in my opinion.

     The family seems to be made up of semi retarded individuals, starting with the father and working itself down. Positive decisions that a 3 year old would make seem to elude these folks as they go from crisis to crisis, and never seem to learn that what they are doing is just plain ignorant. They claim that ‘family’ is everything and the boys in the family are all single and about the most backward folks imaginable. They have a seemingly inexhaustible craving to prove how cool and self sufficient they are, yet it plays out that in a real life setting they would be living in a friend’s trailer, uninvited, doing meth and living from welfare check to welfare check. 

   The family obviously shuns medical and dental care and prevention, thrive on doing in the wild what we take for granted in civilization, like having a washer and dryer, and try to convince us that one of the sons is a wilderness genius, who can make everyday items out of trash, no matter what. The girls seem to be on the path to having 5 kids and left back at the trailer park, while their boyfriends go to town and hunt more pussy. The mother claims to teach quantum physics with a twig, a stone, and a patch of dirt outside next to the front porch of their horrible cardboard walled piece of shit shack.

    And whenever they do one of their so called projects to improve their lot in the wilderness, they almost always show up with a boatload of junk and brand new articles to finish the job. Remember the ‘putting in the wood burning stove’ storyline ?  It seemed OK at first, they got an old stove that they bartered or worked for, hauled it on the boat to the island, set it inside and then, magically, they start to install 60+ feet of brand new triple walled stove pipe !!!  That stuff cost a fortune !!! And when they were hauling all this other stuff to the shack, we never once saw any of this stove pipe. I imagine they didn’t think we would notice. I did, in like 2 seconds. What a bunch of baloney…

    Will this season be any better ? I doubt it, but I will continue to write my little reviews and sit back and laugh…

Visit Railing Kill for a good laugh at this series… He tears this crazy bunch of loons to shreds after every show. I love his articles and satire…

Back to Alaskan Bush People Season #5

Keokuk Building Collapse

In 2009, a vacant building on Main Street collapsed on itself. No reason was given for the collapse, most thought age and neglect were the primary reasons. The building was a music store in it’s last use and had been empty for 10 years.

And then the people came out and told how it was one of Keokuk’s most historic buildings, been there forever and now, greatly missed. Except for the part where no one even looked twice at it while it was standing and no one really cared.

Back in the day it was Wright Fashion, a women’s clothing store, before that, a distillery and a hardware store. But the consensus was that it was old and historic. And then for no reason it just fell down. The city contacted the owner and got nowhere, the owner seems to live out of state and has no money to clean up the giant mess. So it sat for a while and then the city decided to take on the chore of removing the rubble.

Digging down, the crew discovered a basement with arches, seemingly a part of the sewer system that once was underground the building.

Some of the townsfolk stepped in and pointed out the historical and possible commercial aspects of this ‘new’ hole on Main Street. 

************ of the Keokuk Historic Preservation Society believes the historic remains are a look into Keokuk’s historic sewer system, “miles of brick sewers one could row a boat through,” and should be preserved.

“Are we going to designate this site as a piece of irreplaceable history, as an example of the extraordinary underground 19th century masonry on which the city is built or are we going to destroy it and cover up the evidence?” he asked.

And of course I had to ask, ‘irreplaceable history’ ?   ‘extraordinary underground 19th century masonry’ ? It is just a sewer system built a long time ago, no one cared about it then and I thought no one would care about it now.  But that was not all…

Should the city agree to slow rubble removal and proceed in a careful manner, he envisions an “extraordinary historical site.”

“If we do the right thing, (the public) might be able to walk in them, sit at a table in them, have tea and muffins or beer and a brat in the Keokuk Grotto Bistro, totally surrounded by the stone and brick that anchored this town down back in the day, 160 years ago,” ********** said.

“extraordinary historical site.”    And now even a name, ‘Keokuk Grotto Bistro’, where we can go eat in the ‘historic Keokuk sewers’. I mean, what were they smoking ?  Did the person even consider the cost of taking a hole in Main street and converting it into a cafe ? The city codes ? Wow, Keokuk can hardly keep a regular restaurant open for business and now someone wants to open another in a hole, so we can look at the sewer arches while we bite into a brat. What a joke.

Others soon chimed in with their take on the matter. One observant local suggested a quaint below ground park, where the upstanding citizens could go and sit a various picnic tables and other seating arrangements and have tea, or enjoy an outdoor game of chess with a friend. 

Of course, the people in town with a more sane approach were laughing at these folks continuously, I myself discussed this with co workers and thought these ideas ‘just plain nuts’, and they agreed. We made the jokes, ‘Let’s meet in the sewer and have tea tonight’… And I asked if anyone in all their years had ever seen anyone on a park bench or table ever playing chess outdoors in Keokuk (cue the crickets).

Finally the city filled in the hole and covered it up, planted some grass and there it sits today, a lawn. Someone actually did buy the ground…

***************** of Montrose bought it during a property tax auction in May 2013.  ****said it’s next to the new home for Great River Players, a local theater group of which **** is a member.

******* said ***** is open to ideas for the site.  **** would like to give the property an “artsy” feel, given its location between the GRP home and the Grand Theater across Main Street.

Artsy, there you go… an artsy lawn… I wonder how much she paid for this prime piece of Keokuk real estate at a tax auction ?  $50 bucks ? $100 ?. And the Grand Theater is not across Main Street, well, maybe a little across….

Since then, two more buildings in the ‘business’ district have fallen down also. High winds caused the brick buildings (glad they weren’t made of glass) to fall apart. I guess these collapses had no historical value, as no mention was made of opening a ‘bistro’ in the remains, or preserving the unholy mess for non existent tourists to gaze in awe at…

And it all makes you wonder, if a small cafe was opened, and the sewer arches were preserved for all to see, would anyone outside of Keokuk come to see them ? I seriously doubt it….

Keokuk True Crime pages

I have quite a few views on my website looking at the Keokuk true crimes articles. I am glad that people have found this interesting. Have not had any comments left from anyone, possibly due to the fact you have to leave an email address, which BTW is required by the website developer WordPress. I don’t use the email address for anything and neither does WordPress, I imagine it is for spam and any abusive emails sent my way.

Regardless, I would like to print more stories in the future about life in Keokuk as I saw it and concentrate on the crimes that happened there and the tragedies (such as the Armory explosion and the Rand Park drownings) as this interests me.

Please follow me and these posts as I may continue to add to the stories I already have posted….

Return to Amish: season 4

Well, this is about the sorriest show on television by far.

Whoever writes this crap has to be laughing all the way to the bank that someone actually thought it would make it to TV, and paid him to write this ridiculous stuff.

If anyone believes these morons actually do the stuff that is portrayed on this show then you need to see a doctor.

But the worst part is, is that I sit there, and watch it and eat popcorn and just chuckle at the adventures of Mary, Abe, Rebecca, Jeremiah, Sabrina and the others as they go through their paces every week… lol
