Heh, I'm way more amused by this than is healthy :?
If you read his bio stuff you'll start to see why all the blubbering.

It's like..."I smoked a fuckload of crack, and then I found Jesus and he saved me, and then I smoked two fuckloads MORE crack, but Jesus told me he still loved me and I was so glad that I was saved that I totally repented and felt bad for all I had done, so I sat and thought about it for a while. Then the next day I went out and bought three fuckloads of crack and my friend Jesse, who also loved Jesus, asked me, do you still love Jesus?" and I said, yeah, and I feel like shit". So Jesse said, "well, he still loves YOU too". And then Jesse set me up in an apartment full of crack and crackheads, and the First Unrepentant Baptist Church of the Unclean Cystic Mass paid my rent for the first three months. So then I went to this hotel and smoked some more crack and thought about Jesus for a while and I repented again and thought about what it means to be humble and then I went out and bought twelve fuckloads of crack...."

Yeah there's all sorts of subtle Jesus poking out all over that site before you get to the hardcore stuff.

Favorite quote: " Tad submitted to several Pastors, some still very close friends."

Yeah...I'll BET he did.

My god. I feel like I'm on Staten Island.

This hurts to watch. I kind of feel bad for this guy. I think I would feel genuinely guilty for chuckling at his expense if he wasn't as cocky as he is clueless.

On the other hand, perhaps we shouldn't rip on him too hard. There's clearly something wrong with his brain. He obviously doesn't function anywhere near a normal adult level, socially or cognitively.

Part of me feels like we're throwing waterballoons at the shortbus. Not cool.

However, expert village should probably be informed.... but then again, what would they do? remove his videos? This guy would be devastated..... I don't know, I just don't know.

I hear ya, the more I watch the more I feel the same way. He may know more than he can convey, maybe the camera amplifies his problem.

Uh, who is this "Mutton Lang" he refers to at 1:22 in the first vid?

I haven't gotten too deep into this, but... is there a chance this could be some sort of send up? Anyone remember "Tadpole" from the Nuendo message board a few years ago?

OMG!!! I've been laughing so hard I'm about ready to fall over....I can't believe I've lived in Houston for 13 years and I'm just now seeing this...How am I ever going to compete against this guy? I don't even have a cool website and I never thought of putting the price tags on all my stuff for everyone to see how much my gear costs.....

Might as well just give it all away now......... :cry:
Of course I've had it in the ear before.....
