And Now An Epic Rant From Mcakez

keynote-at-mitSo Donkey is lament being unable to attend her brother’s one-in-a-lifetime graduation despite spending the past several months pointless traveling to dusty, hippie festivals and stalking Avocados. She is just so, so sad about it.

My entire family is in Boston watching my brother graduate officially from MIT with his PhD in physics. I wish I could teleport myself there.

Sometimes I wish that we still lived in the days of families all living together in the same city. I hate being so far away from them … (but not enough to move back to Chicago!)

I’ll just let mcakez speak for the rest of us:

I have a lot of feelings about Donkey lamenting not being able to go to her brother’s commencement.

Fuck you you fucking fuck.

You could have just done the respectful thing and either:
a) just said congratulations
b) just not said anything

But NO. You have to make it all about you! You’re sooooo sad you can’t go see baby (BABY!) brother graduate.

Bullshit.

bull fucking fuckity fuck fuck fucking shit.

No.

You cannot tell me that you have money to go to lunacy fest, whatever shit happened in Chile or whatever, whitening in a bottle, New Orleans, Maui, blipppity bloppity moo, but do not have the ability to go to see your brother get his DOCTORATE.

Then, on top of that, you don’t have the ability to NOT MAKE IT ABOUT YOU FOR ONCE.

You are seriously an incorrigibly selfish cunt. I don’t even like my extended family and they all turned up to watch me get my Masters. Even the bitchy passive aggressive caunt who told everyone I tried to commit suicide because her daughter did and she wanted to try and play it off in some nonsensical plan worthy of… well, you.

Nope.

You did NOT just do the whirl whore tour of smelly hippie festivals and then turn around and gee shuck shrug waaaah cry that you can’t make it to see your brother get his DOCTORATE the one time that will happen in his life? If fucking Avocado had gotten a gig pressing play on garage band in Omaha you would have been there in a tutu and plastic daisy crown, wouldn’t you?

What excuse do you have, seriously? Did Comic Con need you to wear an upside down tiara and pose with people who make you feel socially well adjusted?

What the FUCK is WRONG with you?

What the actual fucking fuck?

And now…

Now…

After just bailing on the whole thing with a pinkie innocently twirled to the corner of your mouth and a ‘what me?’ expression you have the fucking AUDACITY to whine?

Can you not only not be an absolute rotting twunt for once, but you can’t not try and scam sympathy for being a festering wound on the hemorrhoidal asshole of the planet?

I…

I am fucking invisible ellipses

Christ, man.

    Holy shit!

    Did I just FIRST my own rant? Fuck yes I did.

    • I Cried My Rhinestone Off says:

      Wow. I think that might out-JFA JFA. Are…are the walls melting? I feel funny.

    • Fell off the Rainbow Raft says:

      Mcakez is the new jfa

      “blipppity bloppity moo” = loud chortles.

      I’m in comments prison hello!?!?

    • JFA says:

      I am no longer in comments prison. Maybe it was my “whore” user name.

      Anyhoo, I’ve been replaced as JFA/ranter? At least I still have JFA’ing/responding to myself.

      Good rant.

      • Ks says:

        No one can replace you. You are one of a kind. Though some may insult, mock, or imitate you, you are fixture here and we would lose a vital member should you go dark. I’ll always love your vitriol since it serves as a nice counterweight to my own. Don’t ever change and smile every time someone jfa’s themselves.

        • JFA says:

          Aww, thanks so much! :) Very sweet, much love back and don’t worry, I won’t be visiting an ashram anytime soon. I love you all! You complete me.

    • Braying Lady Crony says:

      On second thought, “I am fucking invisible ellipses” is my fave part. Excellent and obnoxious indie band name.

      That is all.

  2. makez: We Need to Talk About Devin says:

    Can I please point out she did a total “Fuck Chicago (and you, parental non-plus cool parents! Thanks for paying for shit, but I will happily suck your teet while white whining in SF!) kick in the balls to her parents?

    SHE DID.

    • makez: We Need to Talk About Devin says:

      Which means she must have been pitched the “move back to Chicago” routine by the rents.

      And she told them to suck her balls.

      For real.

      After crying about not being able to go see her brother get his FUCKING DOCTORATE.

      She did.

      SHE MISSES THEM AND REGRETS THIS BUT NOT ENOUGH TO SUCK THEIR TEETS WITHIN EASY TRAIN DISTANCE SON.

      Da fukkkk with this bitch?

      The rage?

      I have it.

    • Cowboys & Brayliens says:

      Seriously. Fuck her. Peter, just fucking cut her off already. Change the fucking credit card account number and invalidate the fucking card. Stop paying the rent check.

      Make her fucking *responsible* for one fucking thing in her life, already. She needs a little tough love, dude, and quietly asking her “oh hey do you want to come back to Chicago maybe” and then fucking folding over when of course she’s going to say no, that’s just fucking despicable. I would expect more from a *fucking* *lawyer* than just completely folding under the horrendous pressure from his *fucking* *daughter*. Jesus, remind me never to be represented by you.

      Cut her the fuck off already. What’s the absolute worst thing that can possibly happen? She grifts her friends and couch surfs? Yeah right, everyone knows she won’t possibly do that– she doesn’t have enough friends to pull that trick off. She will come back to home. She will get cleaned up. She will somehow manage to land a regular job, doing whatever the fuck PR gig. You just need to show some fucking initiative, Peter.

      • JFA says:

        I love the rants! But y’all are taking over my role! :)

        My theory is, they are all scared of her…and they do whatever they can to shut her up. At this point they are prob scared if they cut her off she will move back home and I’m convinced no one wants that.

        I don’t know why as frugal midwesterners they don’t at least curb her lifestyle.

        Additionally, no one will ever ever get me to believe she does not have a trust fund. Both her parents are from money. Granny was clearly loaded. She has a trust fund. There is no other explanation. And her family fears her. Her father prob pays the bulk of shit but, please, how is this bitch paying $4000 rent if she has no trust fund? There is no way. Even a dadser level attorney who prob makes well into 6 figures, he ain’t bankrolling that.

        • Dark Nights of the Donk (Intermittent) says:

          I have a friend who I love dearly but who just would much rather not work. I have been pretty sure that his parents have paid his rent in the past in order to keep him from moving home when he was “between jobs”. Luckily now even he has a job he’s okay with. But I can believe that some parents really do not want their dysfunctional little birds returning to the nest. I would happily pay out the nose to keep Julia away from my house.

          • Ks says:

            You copied and pasted this post.

          • Psycho-delic Ballerina fka Lurker says:

            I am not saying that she doesn’t have a trust fund, but these are links to a DEED OF TRUST on the Sheridan Rd home, which is a totally separate thing from a “trust fund.” This is not proof of a trust fund. Julie’s trust fund or lack thereof is not public record.

          • Psycho-delic Ballerina fka Lurker says:

            Dude, honest mistake I get it, but this is basically a mortgage on the Sheridan Rd home. I mean come on, you are linking to the Cook CO. property records site! These are property records. Not evidence of a “trust fund.” Sheesh.

          • anon says:

            It IS a trust fund. The mortgage was taken out from an account called Julia A Baugher Trust. “Sheesh.”

          • Psycho-delic Ballerina fka Lurker says:

            Yeah, that is a trust entity named after her. That doesn’t mean there is a trust fund. It just means that Petey created a trust entity and named it after his daughter. I’m not saying she doesn’t have a trust fund, but the fact that there is a trust entity bearing her name listed on some property records does not mean what you think it means.

          • Psycho-delic Ballerina fka Lurker says:

            Dude, I don’t want to argue with someone who “used to do title searches” and an “anon.” A trust entity and a trust fund are not the same thing.

          • Psycho-delic Ballerina fka Lurker says:

            Here is the flaw in the logic in the mostly correct comment you instructed me to read. The commentor jumps to the conclusion that Jules is the beneficiary of the trust named after her. That isn’t established anywhere. Accordingly, Petey could have just established a trust for the purpose of effecting a real estate transaction and named it after his newborn daughter. Not uncommon.

            I am not saying she doesn’t have a trust fund, just saying that whether or not she does is not established on the Cook Co property records site.

            Where did you go to law school?

          • PassThePopcornPlease says:

            I’m not disputing whether there’s a trust fund or trust instrument or other vehicle to convey funds to her.

            Looking up and disclosing this personal information, strikes me as really creepy and stalkerish. I don’t care if it’s public information. And you’re giving her reasons to take action against RBD.

          • Psycho-delic Ballerina fka Lurker says:

            Popcorn: trying to figure out personal, non-public info like whether or not Jules is the beneficiary of a trust with assets that are being distributed to her would be creepy. I just discussed public property records and tried to explain that they do not contain proof of non-public information like the identity of a trust beneficiary. Hope I did not offend.

          • PassThePopcornPlease says:

            @Psycho-Delic I get what you’re saying, no worries.

            I guess my problem is with the original posting of the deed info back in 2011.

          • Psycho-delic Ballerina fka Lurker says:

            Popcorn: got it. None of that 2011 posting was me. That said, now that I’ve read the 2011 posting, seriously folks that is not evidence of a trust fund for Julia’s benefit. It’s just a trust bearing her name.

            The only people who would know real details about a trust for Jules’ benefit are the parties involved and their lawyers. It is not public info.

            The person who made the 2011 post and apparently used to run title searches post must have been somehow involved in property law. Trusts and estates is an entirely different subject. Information regarding property is public record. Information regarding trusts generally is not public record.

            Again, not saying one way or another re whether Jules has a trust fund, just saying the supposed 2011 confirmation of such a fund was inaccurate.

          • ks says:

            Thanks for clarifying that Lurker. So having a trust named after you means absolutely nothing? And let’s just pretend for a moment that the trust WAS intended for Julia. At what point could she “cash in” on it? Once the property is sold or when the originators die?

            I really cant see her father, a lawyer, NOT setting up some kind of inheritance for his daughter. Even the poors do that. But he probably wouldn’t make it public either.

            You guys debate well :)

          • Psycho-delic Ballerina fka Lurker says:

            Ks: the fact that there is a trust named after JA doesn’t reveal the trust purpose, the trust beneficiary, the trustees, none of that. If Jules is the beneficiary of a trust, the details of what assets she receives and when would be laid out in non-public documents. So, I can’t answer your Qs.

            I agree with you that if Petey had his head screwed on straight, he probably would have lined something up to provide for Jules. Maybe a trust. Who knows. In light of the fact that she is now over 30 and unemployed (unemployable?), it seems even more likely to me that he would have set something like a trust up for her. But anyone claiming to know the details of such a trust is almost certainly either mistaken or violating attorney-client privilege.

          • Tingolayo says:

            From what I know, I agree with Lurker. A trust can be a way of titling property, and there can be various beneficiaries. People use it avoid probate, for one thing. A friend used to tease me about being a trust fund kid because he saw some mail addressed to the Tingolayo of Easter Island Trust. I most assuredly don’t have a trust fund, although I do have funds beyond my income from my long-term, full-time job so I can’t complain I haven’t benefitted from privilege.

            People look up property records all the time, e.g. to find out the owner of your neighborhood party house, to spam old folks about reverse mortgages, etc. It’s public info.

            As to how A Donkey has money to clomp all over the place is anyone’s guess. To receive money from a trust fund would mean that someone set up funds “in trust” for her, to be paid over a period instead of in one lump sum. The question is why. There’s a “spendthrift trust,” where you know the person can’t handle money so you set up funds to cover their living expenses, almost as if you don’t trust them with an inheritance. Did all the kids/cousins get one?

            I would *think* (but I don’t know for sure) that you would need an investment portfolio of at least $1 million to be able to draw $4 or 5 thousand a month, which is what A Donkey would need for her stall in SF. And that certainly would not last a lifetime by any means.

            I have a friend who got regular cash gifts from her parents, at the limit of what’s taxable in CA, because it benefits them somehow, tax-wise. (Friend stashed it away for her children’s education etc.) It would NOT be enough to live on in your own apartment in the Bay Area, without roommates.

            My *guess* is that Cheapskate Leech Allison is getting the SF apartment for free or reduced rent somehow, like she scammed her way into being a house-sitter. Her Craigslist ad for a roommate/subletter was shut down awfully fast for someone who has free reign over the apartment.

          • Psycho-delic Ballerina fka Lurker says:

            THANK YOU, Tingolayo. Gawd, I feel like I have been shouting at donuts. Who knows how Jules has been paying or not paying her way all these years. In other news, given that Jules is away, check out the developments on Shanti’s fb!

            https://www.facebook.com/aliearthshanti/posts/744762382233105

          • Duh, seriously? Grammarian says:

            a small 10k gift: the amount you can give to someone without taxes and is reducible from your income is 10k — so many well off people regularly give kids that much at the end of the year

            my rich friend who works at a nonprofit and has horses uses her annual 10k from mom and dad to help pay off the past year’s barn bill

  3. JuliasTooSmallTutu says:

    Such a decline, just three years ago she would have attended this if only to thrust her tits in an obvious attempt to get into a new Phd’s wallet.

  4. Sacred Scrapbooks says:

    Well she did attend his thesis defense and had to sit quietly like a good little girl for a couple of hours and didn’t even have a coloring book. Imagine how exhausting that must have been. As tiring as standing at a podium in an empty hall at MIT and pretending to give a lecture while someone snapped photo after photo until she got “the one.”

    Plus, she already has an MIT hat.
    http://rebloggingdonk.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/sxsw.jpg

    • darling-dearest with softness says:

      If I wasn’t sure that I could afford flying to Boston twice, I’d skip going to the defense and go to the graduation. The MIT campus comes alive with the Tech reunions, it’s so festive and such a great atmosphere.

      Oh wait, its an atmosphere of celebrating accomplishment…got it.

      • like a basilisk, but with lies says:

        So, as a PhD candidate at Julia’s favorite fetish objectuniversity, I have to say, if my sister could only do one (which is likely, given that she lives several states away), I would prefer her to do the defense. I would prefer that because I would like her to encounter me doing the stuff that I do and discussing my actual work (as opposed to just wearing regalia and walking around), and because the moment that someone says “Congratulations, Dr. [You]” is a much, much bigger deal than the moment that someone hands you a leatherbound diploma. That’s the real ritual of achievement for most doctoral candidates, not the graduation, which many don’t even attend. And the people who care about in you in your department, your peers and faculty both, turn out in force for your defense, which they don’t for the actual graduation ceremony, so it’s much more like “here is my life in this department” at the defense than at the ceremony. Similarly, I went to my sister’s final show for her MFA, but not to her graduation ceremony. Because I wanted to see her work more than I wanted to see her walk.

        So, in short, I think the choice is a reasonable one, it was just probably not, in this situation, made reasonably.

    • How Brayella Got Her Hoove Back says:

      I have an MIT hat, along w/ a HARVARD sweatshirt, both gifted to me by an associate professor at Harvard Medical School — is that a big deal? Because, according to the indisputable logic of unemployed grifter Alexa Rae, IQ low 60′s, his renowned work referred to as the breakthrough of the year in cancer immunotherapy doesn’t even equate success in this lifetime.

      Oh, wait! IF following your heart’s truest desire is to take selfie #97,35,277 in an MIT hat, then you are winning sooooo hard & serving others while doing it. Durrr! Mybad, being part of the normal generation & all.

      • Dyspeptic says:

        “Serving others.” That’s the part of Alexa Rae’s prop-up that really got me. As fucking if.

        • Tingolayo says:

          You know who else served, “Alexa” “Rae”? Nope, I didn’t think so. Of course, a teenage soldier who’s wading toward an enemy-held beach while his buddies are cut down by Nazi snipers isn’t nearly as brave as someone who makes feather headbands for a living and glues rhinestones in her face to attend a music festival for her own pleasure.

          Tell me again about the contribution that “you” and your generation are making. And no, posing for vanity fauxto shoots where you play dress-up as a “goddess” doesn’t count. Attending music festivals with your pals doesn’t count as changing the world. Being supported by your parents doesn’t count as “creating the new economy.” Neither is getting free labor from an intern.

  5. The Artist Formerly Known as Random Snowflake™ says:

    It seems like Julia is avoiding them, but they’re still speaking.. Not sure what kind of fuckery is going on here.

      • The Artist Formerly Known as Random Snowflake™ says:

        Dammit, I can’t wait till Season 8 comes out :D

    • How Brayella Got Her Hoove Back says:

      That crossed my mind too, but all I could think of as to ‘why?’ is that there’d have to be something about her physical appearance to hide, which doesn’t really make sense. Probably dodging an impending Come to Greg tawk w/ Dad$er.

      Ima just sit awhile longer w/ muh theory that SugarDaddyMiles cut her raftass off at the potato knees, but if & when D0nkey resumes pointless travel again, then we know that’s not it either.

      Estranged D0nkey is Strange.

      • Dyspeptic says:

        Donkey needed to go to Camp Ostentatiously Unplugged this weekend so she could gather material for a chapter in her Pretend Happiness Book and try to scrabble together a freelance piece for The Atlantic online or the monolithic AP. She’s relevant, bishes!! And not random!

        • Norse Horse says:

          Because she’s a dick. Her “baby brother” is getting his PhD from MIT, and she somehow can’t be there? I think she’s just rotten and seething with jealousy. She flies all over the fucking country all the time, but she can’t be with her family to see her “baby brother’s” award for his outstanding achievement? She is just the worst. I wonder what her accomplished, happily married brother thinks of her. Maybe she was told to stay away.

          • How Brayella Got Her Hoove Back says:

            You’re talking about Julia Allison, same ditch pig who skipped her grandfather’s memorial simply because strutting her stuff in a Wonder Woman costume has precedence over “family” at any cost.

            I don’t think her parent$ have say in airfare, I think that’s an independent well that D0nkey has been leech-leaching off of, which she will keep sucking on/off in every sense of the word.

            I sort of imagine that she gets a set amount on a regular basis, w/ yet another large chunk set aside for which Dad$er must sign-off on (& no doubt she’d feel entitled to run up his CC’s & force him to dip into it if / when he previously wouldn’t sign off on it).

    • AWO says:

      She thought her parents would spring for the ticket. They were probably like, “No, honey. You’re always traveling, please pay for the ticket yourself.” The fact that she didn’t should tell them how much she really cares.

      • Norse Horse says:

        Yeah, but I think they’re already paying her exorbitant rent, an air ticket would be nothing. I mean, what other income does she have, how does she eat and pay rent and buy frocks? Airfare cost seems a minor issue here. Either she can’t stand to see attention on someone else, or her family told her not to bother, they don’t want an embarrassing flamboyant asshole like her to deal with. I really don’t think airfare money is the issue.

    A pretty good note from the universe, today. Is this how you view spending money? I have a bit of a “don’t spend money! Ahhhh!” mentality lately, and this reminded me that spending money is just exchanging energy, so let’s make it some beautiful energy!

    Transbraytion:
    “I don’t have an income, a job or savings, and I’ve recently been reminded that if I turn in a pile of photos of myself instead of a manuscript, I will not get the remaining chunks of my advance. My dad said let’s see if my new festival and bra paradigm writes rent checks. I got sad, binged on chocolate, and cried all night because why can’t the internet just believe what I say instead of always noticing what I actually do? WHY. But then I remembered, I still have Dadser’s Amex, plus a commitment to not wearing a shirt for 30 days, so it’s off to the husband-hunting festival!”

      Hey asshole, you knwo how I don’t spend money? Even though I am gainfully employed, I found an apartment in a wonderful, diverse area of BK that most ppl are prob too scared to live in, esp the likes of you because LOL brown people. I try desperately to live within my means. That’s how one saves money.

      Get a fucking job. Thanks! Create beatiful energy by having a goddamn life purpose. You’re an embarrassment.

          When her father clearly cut off her NYC lifestyle, she was looking for places in NYC that she clearly could not afford just to pretend to FB she could afford them. I m’ talking like, $4000 a month places. Then suddenly I”M MOVING TO CHICAGO or whatever. Bitch? you’re not too good for a $1500 apartment. And stop buying tutus maybe and vinyl shoes and 30 sports bras. Her pretend anti-consumerism is now 125th on the list of things that make her loathsome.

            I would love to live in a more convienent part of NYC (ie: closer to the location of my desk errands – an hour commute from BK suckkkkks) but I’m a grownup and so I still with my somewhat outdated, no amenities apartment which boyfriend and I share and it keeps my rent below $1K/month, allowing me to a) pay off student loans since I have no dadser or momser to spring for my state school edumacation and b) live the life I’ve become accustomed to (ie: travel fairly often – a few times a year – nice dinners out which I can pay for by myself IN CASH and the occasional non-cloppy pair of shoes). Of course, I’d LOVE a doorman building, outdoor space and a new kitchen/bath but it’s just not something I can afford while also living the life I want so I prioritize, like an adult.

    She’s degenerated to such a horrific level. I have friends who are fully supported / financially set by family money but they have some perspective and wisdom enough to create something that resembles a schedule which includes work even if it is token work – just some form of humility that they find interesting.

    so apparently she’s leaving for another festival (“grounded”?) on friday, so I’m guessing that is why she could not make her one and only sibling’s phd graduation.

    yep, attending another ‘conscious transformative’ festival, or whateverthefuck it’s called, three weeks after the LAST festival, with the exact same bunch of drugged out, smelly, unwashed grifter hippies out in the middle of a dusty forest and/or desert, is more important than going to see your brother graduate with his phd.

    that’s alright, julia, I’m sure he’ll be too busy to attend your phd grad…..hahahahahahahahahhahahahahahaha, oh right, there’s no danger that is EVER going to happen. um, er, oops?

    I do hope she sees her ugly bear coat walk by on some tiny-n-cute hippie chick at the festival. the inner rage beast will bubble up inside her, but all of the hippies will be watching so she won’t be able to release the full force of the cuntitude. too bad no cameras are allowed there to capture the moment.

I’m envisioning the scene in Citizen Kane where they’re going on a simple picnic at the beach, and it’s a caravan of cars carrying all their supplies. Maybe Donk and her fellow warrior adventure goddesses should read the children’s book Doug Unplugged instead.

Sure, many people can manage to get a free phone with a cell plan, but a lot of people can’t afford internet, don’t know how to use the web, have never been shown how to sign up for webmail, etc. They don’t need to get “grounded,” they meed to get plugged in.

  15. Craying Mantis says:

    I have a few degrees (did 2 of the 3 graduations) and a sister who makes things all about her. I extend courtesy invites to her because I have to but my family and I always hope that she will not actually show. She made my college graduation all about her. Even now if my graduation comes up she reminds us that it was “The Day She Had the Epic MeltDown and Had to Step Outside for Fresh Air”. It wasn’t my graduation, it was her big day. And after I graduated and moved for a job, she called me to tell me how great my graduation was because it made her think about how she should have gone to college and she would like to go back and be a neurosurgeon and blah blah blah. That’s right: in the week following my graduation, after she had time to process it, she felt it was a good day because of what it made her think about HERSELF. Don’t even get me started about my graduate degree graduation. That was also about her and then we skipped the luncheon afterwards so we could take her daughter to the park. [If it's not about her, it's about her daughter.] I was okay with that because I was so embarrassed about the situation I didn’t need to introduce them to everyone at the luncheon but still. It would have been nice to celebrate my big day in normal family style.

    So yeah. I have an attention-focused sister and while I invite her to things because I have to, let’s just say that no one is sad when she cannot make it. And I don’t keep bugging her. I invite her and then if she declines I don’t bring it up again because honestly I never wanted her to come in the first place.

    I would bet that there is no major sadness at her absence. She is missing to go to a free camp so she can try to land a wallet thing. Camp attendees may not be able to ask what people do for a living but you can bet “journalists” can ask “for their story” and that is how she will grift and wallet hunt as usual. Came Grounded attendees: watch your passwords.

    • How Brayella Got Her Hoove Back says:

      I too have a sister who makes things All. About. Her. in zero-to-60.

      EXAMPLE: I was dx’d w/ a “dreaded disease” that impacted her to this extent: “So-&-So’s sister has such-&-such … OMG, poor So-&-So!”

      I really should have seen it coming when a lady she knows reached out & offered me use of her pool any time I wanted (for aqua therapy), but no.

      So anyway, first (& only) time I went to use that pool, my sister took me, because I’d never even met the lady. While sitting w/ that lady making idle chat (my sister was changing into her suit), some gal dropped by for a visit w/ her (she’d grown up on the block w/ the lady’s kids, & she was in town visiting her own folks; she just wanted to say a quick ‘hello’) … well, what she got was my damn medical history (& quite the view of my tonsils when my jaw hit the ground) … turns out an entire busload of women, 99.9% of whom were & still are complete strangers to me, were captive audience to the terrible news that my sister had received & was in the midst of processing. I hadn’t even told my news to my closest friends or a guy I was dating before my sister was telling strangers who’d retell it to strangers.

      That was seven years ago last month, & it has taken up until this last Xmas for us to find our way back to some semblance of a decent relationship, so I have no freaking idea of how (or why) Cancer Dan & his wife at all tolerated D0nkey making his diagnosis all about her on every corner of the internet.

          She was the only person there who I told that my then-husband & I had split, & by 1st break that night (two hrs into the shift) many people fucking knew I was getting a divorce.

          For a very long time after that, a (true) friend & I, if & when asked for our ph# by any dude we didn’t want having our ph#, would oblige by giving her ph# w/ the confession that our ‘real name’ was ___ (hers).

      I really do love this website because it is a constant reminder of the worst kind of behavior and attitude and selfishness which always seems to serve as a great example of what not to do, how not to think, how not to live your life. I can see, at low points in life, loss of job, move, financial problems, break-up, death of friends and family, moments when I’ve experienced tinges of her self-centeredness, especially when I was younger in my 20s. It’s therapeutic to be reminded of how not to live life on the jerk side, specific, constant, actual, ongoing examples of how *not* to be. That is the book she could write, A Smart Woman Learns from Others Mistakes.

      • Craying Mantis says:

        I agree – when I got married, we thought about what we liked/didn’t remember about other people’s weddings and everyone agrees ours was the most relaxed, fun thing ever. Here is how I think we pulled it off so well:
        - We did what we wanted to do and what we thought would be FUN.
        - Although I love flowers I realized that I couldn’t remember flowers at anyone else’s wedding unless the centerpieces were so huge I couldn’t see over them to talk to tablemates. We saw that cousins and friends had spent $5k on flowers no one remembered. Instead I bought 10 pots from anthro for $14 each and about $100 of pretty flowers from KMart and made potted flower centerpieces that were beautiful. Best part is my mom and I planted the flowers in her garden afterwards and I kept the pretty pots.
        - We spent $ on the photographer because we have old relatives and thought this was a nice chance to get some nice pictures of everyone while still alive and looking their best.
        - Though huscat wanted a band originally the one he wanted was booked and we also realized that bands take breaks and that often leads to lulls. We spent $ on an incredible club DJ and people shut the place down dancing.
        - We invited lots of young people. Lots of friends. So that people danced and drank.
        - We had it at a small-ish place where almost everyone could stay. This helped people feel they could drink more and be festive! When we compare this to other weddings we’ve gone to where there has been little to no alcohol, the difference is noticeable. People travel from all over to be there, give them some wine!
        - We found a place that let us bring our own booze and wine. The caterer recommended it and said we’d save thousands and she was right.

        Something I thought was low-key but my bridesmaids ended up not liking. I told them to wear anything they wanted, I didn’t want them to have to spend loads of money on a dress they hated. I encouraged them to buy anything they wanted as long as it was in a bright color (not pastels) like red, pink, orange, yellow, blue, green, purple, whatever. They had hoped for more structure. Looking back I would have asked them what they wanted – for me to choose a dress? For us to shop together? To do whatever they wanted?

        - We didn’t go crazy spending money on decorations.
        - We kept the ceremony short and personal and people thanked us for that.
        - I found lots of cute things on etsy, like I hired an artist to make our invitations and another to draw a pretty map of the area and things to do. Those are some of my favorite mementos from the treasure because we helped design them and they are very personal. We had fun with it.

        - Things we have not liked at other people’s weddings: no alcohol; very little alcohol; way too loud music so no one can talk; massive centerpieces so you cannot see other people at your table; very little food (the huscat’s cousin who spent $5k on flowers only did appetizers – NO DINNER! – food would have been nice).

        Anyway, you didn’t ask for advice so sorry if this is too much.

        I say, CONGRATULATIONS on your wedding! Make it what you and your partner want and have a blast and try to have fun and relax so that you can truly enjoy the day. Ours was so much fun and I would wish that kind of joy for anyone.

        • Ineffably Adverbial says:

          Craying Mantis your wedding sounds awesome! I ‘yup yup yup’ed my way down your list.

          Interesting to hear that your bridesmaids didn’t like the lack of structure! I’m doing something similiar, where I gave them a general color palette but said get whatever makes you happy and you’ll wear again. I thought that was nice, mostly because I hate traditional bridesmaids dresses myself – hope they don’t find it to be too much pressure! :|

          • Craying Mantis says:

            I am sure yours will be fine! The few times I have been a bridesmaid I had to spend hundreds of dollars on a dress I could never possibly wear again. I think my bridesmaids were ultimately okay with it but they would have liked structure. Maybe just let yours know if they want any feedback they can ask you. My two friends just ended up connecting on Facebook and sharing ideas and they looked beautiful!

        • Dances with Hooves says:

          I’m the MOH in my best friend’s wedding a couple weeks from now. Just my 2 cents but I would not have liked if she told me just get whatever dress you want.. maybe give a couple of dress choices to choose from within their budget (important, unless you’re footing the dress bill) or just pick one you like that will go well with your dress and see what everyone thinks. My friend pretty much told us, “this is the dress I decided on for you all” and that was that. It is flattering enough, in a color that looks good on everyone, yet I don’t foresee ever wearing it again but it didn’t break the bank so it’s okay. (I also thought my own bridesmaids would wear theirs again and none of them did.) I think the BMs like to feel a little “special” not look like everyone else in the crowd. But maybe your friends don’t care about that aspect, so just run it by them. Also I had so many other things to worry about with the shower, bachelorette, etc. that I don’t think I would have liked the pressure of having to pick the “right” dress as well. But I’m slightly neurotic, so there’s that. Not sure if that was helpful. I’m currently supposed to be memorizing a MOH speech that I am absolutely terrified of giving but I’m distracting myself here instead. Cheers, engaged ladies!

      • Prom Party Burnout says:

        For my OMG wedding, I did lots of stuff traditional, and then some other things not-so-traditional. I didn’t want a huge announcement/entrance into the reception. We went to our own cocktail hour, had a blast, got to mingle with our guests more. I did the mother-son/father-daughter dance at the same time. The fewer things you have scheduled, the more time you have with your guests. I agree about spending $$$ on the photographer, but make sure you get the rights to your photos. And consider an off-season wedding date…got lots of discounts and my pick of vendors by getting married in February!

      • ShesJustStupid says:

        I’m getting married in July in Ireland. About 55 people. I never wanted a big wedding and never really thought about weddings at all. I would have just gone to City Hall and then had a dinner or something but it was complicated with neither side of the family living in New York.

        I won’t go into detail about how I’ve tried to keep this simple, but I will say that the invitations were our waterloo. I didn’t care too much about this aspect of the wedding and wanted to do Paperless Post paper invites that we semi-designed. He wanted something that would have cost us over $1,000 for 50 invites. I won in the end–$200 baby! The paper we picked was a little…thick…though and, if I’m honest, I think we sent out 50 beer coasters!

I’d choose something later rather than sooner to give yourself more time to plan.

          • Craying Mantis says:

            Yeah I would think about the birthday thing. I know someone whose dad got remarried on her birthday and she was not happy about it and her biological mom and step-dad were kind of pissed because it meant their only child wasn’t with them on her birthday. Family drama. If you anticipate any lasting birthday effects, that may play into your decision. Otherwise I agree that weather is a big thing. I got married in December too and was worried people wouldn’t want to make the trip because it’s in the midst of holiday party season but most people we invited came and I think were relieved to be able to bail on some of their holiday parties.

            Good luck with the wedding planning and try not to stress it! Booze, music, good people = fun!

    Jules is going to go over really well.

    From the event page http://campgrounded.org/:

    Let’s be clear.
    This is not a conference, a networking event
    or meet-up opportunity to make contacts that further your career.
    There will be no cocktail hour or welcoming reception for anyone to explain
    what they do, play the “we know the same people” game, or try and figure
    out how they can connect again after they return to the workplace.

    Instead, we create an atmosphere for personal freedom, creative thinking,
    liberation from technology, and a space from the working world
    where we can all once again be… human.

    Friendships at camp are based on real-life connections,
    and the most important status we’ll update is our happiness.

    • Jack the Rhinestone Collared Bulldog says:

      “a space from the working world where we can all once again be… human.”

      She won’t go over at all since burros have clearly been banned from the, er, event.

      • Dark Nights of the Donk (Intermittent) says:

      • JFA says:

        haha dot complicated. that really made a big splash. a nd i’m sure the broadway offers are pouring in now that randi z. got her vanity chance at stardom because she has a famous last name.

        sarcasm. no way anyone will ever employ that bitch again to do anything based on merit. GAWD. that whole fawning over herself and her new book and her broadway debut. i’m glad she seems to have crawled under a rock.

    • Aggressively Stupid says:

      Other than the ban on technology, how is this different than Donkey’s everyday life? She never networks because she never works.

      • Psycho-delic Ballerina fka Lurker says:

        • Norse Horse says:

          Slate is so horrible, Donks would be a perfect writer for them, despite the fact she’s not a writer and would take 6 months to produce 900 words. Hire Julia Baugher, Slate.

    Brilliant rant.

    I laughed my rhinestone off, reattached it and laughed it off again.

  27. Donkin Donuts (Fake Spokesmodel) says:

    slow clap.

    but honestly I’m happy for Brit – she must be insufferable at these events. He can just not check FB/her texts for a few days and have a blissful graduation weekend with his parents, wife, son and friends, sans Donkaroonie. My SIL doesn’t really get along with my family for a number of reasons. We invite her to everything, but she often doesn’t come or doesn’t request work off, and no one is really sad about it – my brother comes without her and I get to hang out with him, which is what I wanted.

  28. Jelly Roll's Cried Off Rhinestone says:

    She went to the presentation so she could add a “stop-over” in NOLA to her ticket home on Dadser’s dime.

    She’s not going to the graduation because it’s not about her.

    She’s braying about it because that CAN be about her. (She’s lying about wanting to be there because Julia).

    Greg she’s amping up the cray – just catching up now – and this Coobie shit is just. absolutely. insane. Makes me think I should change one opinion about the burro. When she wants something, she does find a way to get it. She wanted her hate site BACK bitch. And… Done.

    • JFA says:

      How many times is she gonna say MIT MIT MIT MIT MIT!!!!! You can’t just say “my brother is graduating from his PhD program?”

      I went to a fancy school, and almost no one I fucking know from such fancy school brags about it like, ever. no1curr. STFU. Anyone who follows you already knows ad nauseum where he went to school.

      • JFA says:

        Also, your brother clearly can’t stand you.

        • Jack the Rhinestone Collared Bulldog says:

          Do you think he finally grew a pair and asked her not to attend? Think about it: how would this seemingly level headed guy with a wife and a child explain this lunatic to his friends and colleagues? Especially when she starts blithering on about BM and performing as carny attraction at smelly hippie shithows?

          • Albie Quirky says:

            Nah, she clearly OBO’d the graduation for this Camp Grounded thing.

            She was just pretending to be the sad left-out sister.

            I bet he’s glad, though! Gorgeous weather here today, I hope he’s having a good time.

          • Jack the Rhinestone Collared Bulldog says:

            Yeah, I suppose so. Especially if she gets to “unplug, go away, and be a kid again” for free. As if she ever left adolescence!

          • How Brayella Got Her Hoove Back says:

            Albie’s right — Julia Allison OBO’d her brother’s graduation for exactly the same selfish reason she OBO’d her own grandfather’s memorial service — a chance to strut around half-dressed in costume.

          • Grifty Shades of Cried-off Rhinestones says:

            What is also so interesting is that there are other camp grounded weeks still available this summer, so she could have picked a different time.

          • JFA says:

            I think he’s prob past the point of being embarrassed by her and just tolerates her and rolls his eyes.

            I’m sure she just obo’d and in her defense, so what. She lives across country. That’s a good excuse not to go HOWEVER, don’t boo hoo and pretend that you are so broken up. Just shut up and move on.

        • Jelly Roll's Cried Off Rhinestone says:

          I would say “no”. He’s never grown a pair with her before, why would he now? But – he IS a father now…
          Makes me wonder – has anyone ever heard anything from BabyB’s wife?
          There’s no way she can stand the Donkey. It’s literally not an option.

          • JFA says:

            I think they are just a really laid back, happy, private couple and just tolerate her as much as they need to. That’s always been my perception. With a few leaks here and there about how much he can’t stand her (the wedding speech thing etc).

            With someone like this, you do your best not to engage or enrage and just be happy when they get on that plane home.

    • Psycho-delic Ballerina fka Lurker says:

      The Coobie challenge makes even less sense in light of the fact that she apparently knew she was going to an unplugged event like 6 days later. She wrote “I’m going to post here every day for 30 days to keep myself accountable to my own healthy pursuits” or some such . . . why not add “except for days 6-9 when I will be at an unplugged conference?” nevermind, trying to make sense of this is pointless. She is going to return from the unplugged thing having forgotten all about poor Coobie.

      • How Brayella Got Her Hoove Back says:

    • Random Snowflake says:

      So, from what the w00 w00′s have said nirvana should be something like:

      No more janitors
      No more grocery cashiers and baggers
      No more guys that clean septic tanks
      No more garbage collectors
      No more lawn care guys
      No more roofers
      No more jobs that are no fun, but necessary..

      Everyone should just quit their jobs and pursue their “bliss” (which probably would not include any of the above, and thousands of other jobs..)

      I wonder how they propose to get anyone to do the very necessary shit work if everyone stops all productivity in favor of scams and psychedelic drugs? Have they really thought this thing through?

    • Grifty Shades of Cried-off Rhinestones says:

      That one guy needs an invitation to the basement. A link to the Shantitown massacre would be helpful where she’s called out on her lie about only owing money to the banks.

  32. JFA says:

    I tried to comment about this before but I was in spambot prison.

    So pardon me if it shows up twice, but I love her assumption that families just DO NOT LIVE TOGETHER anymore!

    newflash, assholes, SOME FAMILIES DO INCLUDING MOST ITALIAN AMERICAN FAMILIES I KNOW. Prob like 75% of my family still lives on LI. Almost my entire family (aunts, uncles, cousins) grandparents etc grew up in the same damn town. It was sort of verboten to move away in these kinds of working class italian american families.

    So, just because your fucking family doesn’t live together, and most families don’t, doesn’t mean NO families stick around each other. I was lucky though, I didn’t realize til I got older that was NOT the norm.

    I love how she universalizes her own retarded warped myopic worldview and expands it to include everyone. Fuck you.

    And I’m from a broken home! And my family is STILL closer than yours! Hahaha. Bitch.

    • JFA says:

      NOw I know there are drawbacks to this etc. But, to assume no families live near each other anymore, bitch please. I’m not juding families who don’t get along and all that, but yes, almost my entire family lives close by. And i feel OMG SO BLESSED.

      God I just want her to shut up. “I can’t run a business therefore FEMALE ENTREPRENEURS DO NOT EXIST. THEY DO. NOT. EXIST.” I like going to festivals and not working, therefore everyone should do this. God, get your head out of your own ass for five minutes. #perspective

        • frequent liar miles says:

          Also: “resumes are outdated”; your future employer* wants your “bio” in a “reel” format …

          * FYI, Donkey: “employer” = someone (an entity, an individual, a Delaware statutory trust, a Cayman offshore feeder fund, whatever), who compensates you (in dollars, euros, whatever [excluding bright feather earrings, rhinestone bindis, face-painting sessions and the like]) for your continuing, focused, competent efforts on their behalf.

    • How Brayella Got Her Hoove Back says:

      Remember when she was a digital nomad, shuttling between five cities: New York, Chicago, San Francisco, LA & Boston?

      • JFA says:

        IT’S THE WAY OF THE FUTURE. IN THESE MODERN DAYS NO STUPID SCHLUB SHOULD BE BOUND TO ONE CITY WITH AN ESTABLISHED LIFE.

        But she loves San Fran now. Until the next time she hates it. “I hate NYC!” “I’ve been thinking about moving to NYC again!” “Oh I decided after all to move into the Chicago condo! I ran out of money shhh!”

        • Norse Horse says:

          I find it absolutely weird that she has said so little about “living” in San Francisco, possibly the most beautiful city in the US, to the point where I wonder if she really lives there. I appreciated every day living in that wonderful city for 9 years (this century) and she is again, so profoundly shallow and incurious, she never ever writes about the cool things of SF. Which are many! The people, the parks, the libraries (free!) so many great things about SF. She doesn’t seem to care, never mentions all the great and amazing apart, I guess she’s with the woo crowd with their heads up their asses. San Francisco has its issues and challenges, but it is a wonderful city. Which she seems to not to give a shit about.

          • Tingolayo says:

          • JFA says:

            She does make comments all the time. But it’s vague “I LOVE IT HERE” as she’s clearly not enjoying ANYTHing that makes the city great.

            But she lived in the best city in the world (NYC and yes I am biased) and I bet she ventured to BK 4 times max. She’s a philistine and a hick.

  33. Handbag Stuffed With Softness says:

    I’m trying to read the 73-comments long thread on Ali Shanti’s bankruptcy post, and god above. The reasonable people who are trying to talk to her might as well be shouting at a box of crullers, I swear.

    • Psycho-delic Jiant Dewsh fka Lurker says:

      I know!! That poor one guy making sense for seriously 24 hours diligently posting rebuttals to the woo! I mean I am glad he is doing it, so that any moron reading along may have a reasonable alternative to thinking BK is fun, but Jesus you can’t get anywhere with the woo!

      I have been halfway tempted to hop in and comment about the nature of the consumer debt Ali released, just so everyone is clear that we are talking about an upscale department store, not some medical emergency. But that would not change anything, so.

      • Grifty Shades of Cried-off Rhinestones says:

        PM the guy. I just posted that upthread. Just send him a link to the post where it was all laid out.

      • Handbag Stuffed With Softness says:

        Exactly. There are a couple people on that thread whose points of view simply shouldn’t be dismissed, because they were HARMED when someone else decided to liberate themselves from their debt. She barely responds to them, and uses every occasion to say, “Buy my book! It will all be in the book!”

        I also followed the link to Ali’s latest TMI post, and by the end I felt like I was standing outside a window of the Tower of Babel. There must be a mythological animal somewhere in literature that represents the particular woo trait of using words to confuse and obscure, rather than clarify. I don’t know what it is. Maybe something like a combination jibbering chimpanzee and a hyena looking into a mirror.

          “I don’t know what you mean by ‘glory,’ ” Alice said.
          Humpty Dumpty smiled contemptuously. “Of course you don’t—till I tell you. I meant ‘there’s a nice knock-down argument for you!’ ”
          “But ‘glory’ doesn’t mean ‘a nice knock-down argument’,” Alice objected.
          “When I use a word,” Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, “it means just what I choose it to mean—neither more nor less.”
          “The question is,” said Alice, “whether you can make words mean so many different things.”
          “The question is,” said Humpty Dumpty, “which is to be master—that’s all.”
          Alice was too much puzzled to say anything, so after a minute Humpty Dumpty began again. “They’ve a temper, some of them—particularly verbs, they’re the proudest—adjectives you can do anything with, but not verbs—however, I can manage the whole lot! Impenetrability! That’s what I say!”

      • Silver Cape LaPhlegm says:

        Please do. Honestly.

        Reading that yesterday literally made me sick and I am still sickened by it. A very close family friend just passed away after a lengthy battle with cancer. We are talking millions of dollars in medical bills over the last 11 years. That is what bankruptcy exists to clear. I won’t divulge too much to avoid outing myself, not that Julia would give two fucks about what happens in anyone else’s life but hers to recognize the situation, but after a challenging pregnancy my newborn needed a multitude of surgeries. We have great, great benefits but still paid almost 25K in medical bills. AND WE PAID. Almost decimated our savings and could very well have devastated someone not as blessed as we were to have worked hard for our nest egg. To advocate bankruptcy as a “responsible, accountable” act is such misleading bullshit and the fucking wackadoos that are congratulating her and spewing dangerous vitriol about how banks and the government are enslaving us and bankruptcy is the way to achieve freedom from “the man” gave me nightmares last night.

        I’m upset. Got shitty news about my own health that will interfere with my ability to work, to parent, to be a wife, to be a friend and to live a life. I work really hard because I believe that, while money isn’t everything, if my family is going to have a home, multiple cars, clothes, food, activities, the occasional trip, that costs fucking money. And I also like to work hard! Excuse me for being so fucking unevolved and normal. Then Julia posts about spending money and basically equates it as sharing energy. That is crazy, right? Right? Don’t spend money you don’t have. Is it that hard of a concept? Why does that paradigm need to be shifted.

        So sorry to go off the rails. If I saw Ali Shanti I would hit her in the face with a bag of pennies. Julia is stupid, lazy, ne’er do well, and has burned every bridge she has but no one takes her seriously and she has no voice in any sense of the word to influence people. Ali Shanti is dangerous.

    I just read a very sad essay on the life and death of Billy Mann, who was the subject of Larry Clark’s picture titled “Dead, 1970.” Because Billy, y’know, died of an OD in 1970 at the ripe old age of 27 with his niece/lover/mother of his child trying and failing to resuscitate him while the ambulance never came. And I thought: “what could be more reprehensible than the drugs, incest and violence-filled life this man-child lived?” And then I thought: “people who cry their rhinestones off.”

        I found this woman’s story very moving and hard not to feel sorry for the subject of the picture – who, to clarify, I thought a dashing sexpot when I first saw the (out-of-context) image (which suggests a 16-year-old Mickey Rourke cross-bred with Joseph Gordon Levitt). No – he was a troubled, rage-filled, out-of-fucking-control borderline sociopath who was implicated in his young wife’s death and died a miserable death himself surrounded by poverty, self-hatred and addiction.

      What is the name of all that is fuck is a “Vedic Astrologer?” I refuse to Google it – I do not need pictures in my image bar of women doing vaginal insertions with scented candles shaped like elves or whatever the hell it is a Vedic astrologer does.
      Jonathon Aslay, “dating and relationship expert for women.” What I really look for in an expert in women’s issues is…a penis. Also? I think your parents spelled your name wrong.
      Marni? “Dating With Dignity?” YOU LOSE.
      Julie Ferman…”industry pioneer?” What “industry?”

      “NO TICKETS WILL BE SOLD AT THE DOOR, ALL ATTENDEES MUST PURCHASE IN ADVANCE THIS EVENT WILL SELL OUT QUICKLY!”

      This has never, ever been not a lie.

      “Tickets limited to 200 per gender.”

      You know something? I think you’re kind of missing basic math/word definition with that one. PS: die in a fire.

          • juliaspublicist cried his rhinestone off juliaspublicist cried his rhinestone off says:

            I mean I’ve been to LA for, like, sex stuff, one of those times which I ended up randomly having dinner with then-Chastity Bono at a Brazilian restaurant where it took the power of Greyskull to restrain myself from grilling him about his mother.

            I’ve deliberately never mentioned which city I keep my litter box in for is if she’s a stalker reasons. However, I did get drunk and mention my locale in chat one time. I believe if people pay attention they can at least guess which state I live in.

            But no, I have never lived in the land of the Runyon Canyon.

        • Albie Quirky says:

          You think? I think it’s going to be 200 aspiring “Sex and the City” chicks and 200 basement-dwelling loveshy sysadmin dudes, and neither will be remotely interested in the other.

          • Wife Branding says:

            Albie, LOTS of straight men enjoy talking about dating and relationships, didn’t you know. The whole event doesn’t sound like a total boner killer, AT ALL.

      • RollsRoyceRevenge says:

        The gender thing gets me. Lesbian is a gender, assholes. Gay is a gender.

        They clearly are thinking “straights only.”

        • All the Bralettes says:

          As JP has been saying, this woo crowd is whitewashed as all fuck, and not very gay-friendly. There is this weird heterosexual assumption. RRR, I love your “dithection” of the event. Hilarious!!!

          • Jack the Rhinestone Collared Bulldog says:

            I wonder if I can talk my husband into going. Where would they make a male couple sit? On the ceiling? In Mulia Mallison’s lap? Out in the kitchen?

  38. PrincessWideStance says:

    I think that a very basic tenet of the Woo set is that the outside world doesn’t understand them. Their very existence hinges on the belief that their ideas are incomprehensible to normal people. They are just so fucking BEYOND. And they are quite wrong, for we do get it. Philosophically we understand it completely. We just see enough holes that it looks like Swiss cheese.

  39. MissAssVice says:

    YAY MCakez!!! That was awesome!!

    I know why she is going through all the hippy stuff. As the other catladies have stated she is trying to land a fat wallet. The latest thing in silicon valley is for OMG founders and CEOs to meditate. Sometimes they hsve spiritual advisors. HBO silicon valley was spot on if you want to see it all.

    They want to find enlightenment. Donkey wants to get a Winston on her sausage fingers and lighten their wallet. Too bad it will NEVER happen. She can still scare any man in SF with just her reputation. She is a joke among the Google Venture group because she has “dated” half the men there and blown the rest. I hope dadser plans on supporting her forever because she will never land a wallet or a husband.

      • Princess WideStance says:

        I go there all the time. It’s got tons of great swimming holes and big flat rocks to lie out on and get super hot til you just have to dive back into the crisp water. Heaven.

      • Albie Quirky says:

        “Filing bankruptcy naked” is pretty much the pinnacle of personal enlightenment, is what. If you could do it in a sweat lodge, you would probably immanentize the eschaton right there.

    • Dances with Hooves says:

      She’s currently at Camp Grounded, he was at the Enchanted Forest festival. Clicked on that link, and someone asked him if he was coming to Boston, which caught my eye because I’m nearby.. he said yes for the Unifier festival this weekend.. I thought, I wonder where in MA that could be? Turns out it’s in Connecticut. Anyway, I can’t believe how many of these fucking festivals there are. And, you would think Julia could have gone to bro’s graduation at MIT and then to this fest with Avocado, but whatever. Namaste and all that. I just spent way too much time thinking about this.

  41. Psycho-delic Ballerina fka Lurker says:

    Ali’s BK post includes the following comments!!

    Jared Kane Ali “released” $800,000 of consumer debt, including $13,000 of debt owed to Nordstrom’s. Does that shift your paradigm? She did not have some medical emergency that required releasing her debt. She just spent $13,000 at Nordstrom’s and had eight credit cards she maxed out. Is that responsible?

    Greg Habstritt WTF. Talk about a rabbit hole.

    I’m speechless after just scanning some of that. My eyes are bleeding.

    Ali, it would be good to get a response to that.

    I guess the thing is if you’re going to step out and proclaim bankruptcy is appropriate, you need to be able to explain your own use of it.

    As I’ve said previously, using bankruptcy in veterinary extenuating circumstances may make sense. But if this list of obligations is accurate, this is the kind of situation where I don’t think it is.

    I’m stunned. Please tell me this isn’t true.

      When Craig Filek decided to go dark on social media and the relationshipTMI.com site, I had to feel into what I wanted to do. Here’s what I decided: http://relationshiptmi.com/2014/06/06/go/

      But the entire Relationship TMI site appears to be down with a database error? I wonder if Craiger pulled the plug during his social media blackout?

      Wild.

      • Jack the Rhinestone Collared Bulldog says:

        Speaking of woo grifters, several of the folks that Shantitown is shilling for on her FB page live here in San Diego, which is rather upsetting to me. Goofballs like Adelle Juliet (real name: Stacy Talmadge) who co-hosts All In For All Life Immersion confabs. Listen to her poetry! And yes, just like Shady Shanti, Adelle’s fellow cons tell her how radiant she looks ALL THE TIME.

        • Jack the Rhinestone Collared Bulldog says:

          It won’t matter. The grifter woos are dependent on each other to generate whatever income they’re generating–some poor sap sees Ali Shanti being praised to the skies and ends up shelling out $500 for “legal advice” in the form of online phoney baloney and YouTube videos. Kelli Richards, CEO & Founder at The All Access Group and Certified Coach at All Access Group, has already followed Shantitown’s response with “Congrats to you with this milestone Ali!!”

I am feeling stupidly sentimental and think that I ought to even thank Donkey herself, for having provided so much fodder for laughter and procrastination through all these years.

    Well what do you know– this morning, Donk’s local public OMG EVIL TELEVISION station will be showing a documentary on the meaning of human happiness, featuring “people from all walks of life,” including “experts and scientists.” I’m guessing that their definition of “all walks of life” is a bit broader than “suburban white rich kids who go to Burning Man.” (You’re welcome for the plagiarism inspiration, Julia.)

    But first, there’s a program about detoxing from sugar; later, there’s a show about helping disabled pets with protheses; a documentary on the history of the Jewish people; improving your cardiovascular health; and Suze Orman’s financial expertise.

    But it’s on TELEVISION, so it must all be garbage. After all, it’s not high-quality fare like Miss Advised, a fluffy, failed reality show that mercilessly followed a plastic surgery disaster who literally threw herself at men who wanted nothing to do with her, and who now wears dangly earrings from Cost Plus so that she can pretend she’s a “hippie,” while STILL using aforementioned trashy reality show as the highlight of her faux “biography.”

    Hey, this 2012 blog posting might have have been noted and discussed in RBD prior, but I just found it when googling Shantitown and thought I would (re)post in light of recent developments. Love the harsh, but fair critique of both the lying LOLyer and AVVO, and ending with a clip from the Oscar winning doc MARJOE, in which former evangelist Marjoe Gortner exposes frauds.

        It’s a great list. Shantitown might take this item to heart:

        Blogging is great if you like to write. Blogging to market yourself is stupid and disingenuous. If you don’t love to write, don’t waste your time. If you do love to write and decide to open your ideas to the entire world, be prepared for peer review, occasional pains in the ass, and risk. Oh, and a statistic: # of clients I’ve gotten because of this scintillating blog: ZERO. Thank goodness.

    You know what? How about Shanitotool lends me 800,000 and I just buy a bunch of fucking bear coats and blow and then roll the shit out and she can figure out how to deal with that 800,000 that’s never coming back. Oh. Wait. That shit just materializes out of thin fuck when you sign for the loan.

She did not have some medical emergency that required releasing her debt. She just spent $13,000 at Nordstrom’s and had eight credit cards she maxed out. Is that responsible?

        I guess the thing is if you’re going to step out and proclaim bankruptcy is appropriate, you need to be able to explain your own use of it.

        As I’ve said previously, using bankruptcy in veterinary extenuating circumstances may make sense. But if this list of obligations is accurate, this is the kind of situation where I don’t think it is.

        Lauren Brenner Ali, you wrote, “any individuals I owed were (or are in process of being) paid back. I advocate responsible use of bankruptcy and that involves not paying back where it’s most responsible not to, which requires looking carefully about who you are not paying back and impact on them.”

        So you are saying it’s up to YOU to decide how it impacts someone if you fail to keep your agreement to pay them what you owe? I am interested in how this works. Do you sit down with each person and ask them and then decide based on what they tell you? Do you decide based on what you think you know about their financial situation? I have no idea how that would work, but with your commitment to transparency and communication and community, I have to assume it’s a conversation you have with the people you owe money to, so you come up with a new “agreement” based on mutual understanding. Am I correct?

          Greg Habstritt Ali, I’m sorry you feel that being asked to be accountable feels like bullying to you. Clearly, accountability is unfamiliar territory to you.

          You know something? A key reason I left the whole speaking/coaching/marketing space is because of the cancer of people who get on stage and espouse one thing and put on a complete act of success, yet their personal life doesn’t reflect any of what they claim to be able to teach others. Puffery, exaggeration, minimizing the negative and failures – that’s what most people do on stage or in marketing. However, when you cross the line and almost everything you say is complete bullshit – well, you join a different class altogether.

          So when you claimed you were a million dollar business owner, and making $35,000 a month, was that a lie? Or was it a lie when you claimed in your filings, under oath, that you were making less than $5k a month? Which was the lie, because they cannot be both true?

          I’m just so saddened and disappointed that you created such an extraordinary financial mess, and then have the hubris to decide you’re going to write a book, continue teaching in a subject you CLEARLY are not entitled to, and actually encourage others to follow your completely irresponsible, fucked up path. You seem to try and validate your own bad decisions by justifying them, and then trying to actually convince others they should try it too.

          This whole thread, your behaviour financially, and your responses here are the epitome of hubris and hypocrisy.

          I just hope one day you wake up and get some help, because clearly there is more to just situation than just someone behaving badly. The fact you try to defend and even consider selling it as some kind of mumbo jumbo spiritual strategy for people is vile.

          You fucked up. You were irresponsible. You have a lot to learn about business and money. Admit it. Own it.

          Stop trying to make it more than it is, and stop leading other people down a path that is destructive.

          It’s behavior like yours that made we want to leave the industry, because I didn’t want to be associated with this kind of self-delusion and lies. Disgusting and sad, and you need to give your head a shake.

          Ali Shanti Greg Habstritt, I told you I was going to respond and I am standing fully accountable. I’m just going to do it on my time, not yours. I am working today and will respond when I can give this proper attention. That’s what I consider respectful. There were many ways I fucked up, but filing bankruptcy was not one of them, and neither was using the credit that I used to learn what I did. I learn by making mistakes as do most people. Most of us though, hide our mistakes because of bullies like you and the others who are just being nasty on this thread. I hope to change that for everyone. I have taken what I learned and share it widely so that everyone benefits from the investments I made. Your posts reflect far more poorly on you than they do on me.

          I feel sad for you that you did work you don’t believe in for so long and put people on stage that you consider a cancer who “espouse one thing and put on a complete act of success, yet their personal life doesn’t reflect any of what they claim to be able to teach others.” That was what you did, not me. I speak the truth and I understand you don’t like it and I speak it anyway. There’s nothing I haven’t shared openly.

          I’m getting back to work now. I won’t respond again until I respond to your initial request for explanation, on my own time.

    I’ve written here on and off, (“LTL” is the shorthand for my original moniker, Long Time Lurker), and I can’t possibly claim to be a part of the catlady community, but I love this place. In fact you guys the reason I still poke around occasionally. I went to college with Mulia, and she was kind of weird but vaguely interesting then (true story, I meant to ask her out but forgot). Her NY years were the epitome of microcelebrity, as we all know, but the wheels have really come off the last few years. I feel like trying to shut down RBD was really the turning point between kind of cute, self obsessed girl who does kind of weird things, and full on cray.

    I love how she wrote:

    Things My Little Brother Has Now Accomplished That I Have Not:

    1) Gotten married
    2) Had a (really cute) baby
    3) Graduated with his PhD

    Simultaneously proud of him … AND feeling like a loser.

    To which “Caeli La” (?) writes “None of those things would have actually been soul-satisfying for your unique path”

    !!!

    Marriage has been on her list forever, the same day she posted about dreaming of taking care of babies, and there was the abortive attempt to get into HBS (because fuck you money).

    I don’t think we talk about Jordan much anymore, but ramshackleglam (married, kid, generally dilletante-ish) seems like it would have been Julia’s wet dream five years ago.

    PS: saving money is bad because you’re not exchanging energy. What a dumb fuck.

    • Jack the Rhinestone Collared Bulldog says:

      So if you went to college with the creature formerly known as Baugher, do you remember her wallet chasing in the med school library while engaged to marry that schlub in the law school? We used to go over to the med school library just to listen to her talk on the phone about her many marks. The fiancé would then telephone and Baugher’s voice would change into this faux sweetsyness. It was like watching a Hitchcock villain in action. She’s been a sociopath for a long, long time.

      • LTL says:

        That I don’t, but I do remember seeing her at Booey’s bitching at people when the line wasn’t moving quickly enough, with poor LilyPup (who may have been called “Marshmallow” at the time) shoved into her “JAB” embroidered Kate Spade (or whatever) bag. And I remember reading what she did to that poor Hoya writer on their Valentine’s Day date. What a bitch.

        • Jack the Rhinestone Collared Bulldog says:

It would be unwise and selfish of me to scoop the poop and deprive my neighborhood of my essence. I have made the conscious choice to break free of society’s conditioning of right versus wrong and honor my wish to take the easy way out in everything I do. I am entitled to make messes that other people have to clean up.

    • Fresh Nuggetz says:

      Do you think Craig & Ali have ever considered how their online antics will impact their childrens’ lives down the road?

      They’ve both got pre-teens who will soon start dating, applying to colleges, seeking employment, etc. All these people have access to Google and will likely find the Craig And Ali Show. Do you think the kids will suffer for it?

      This is the very public legacy they’re leaving for their children to inherit.

      And do I understand the story correctly or did I miss something along the way? The whole time I was reading CF’s posts about his abandonment issues, I kept wondering how he can so blindly perpetuate this ‘abandonment wound’ by essentially doing the same thing to his own child by moving to CO without her. How does he not see this?

      • Let It Explode says:

        Their kids will 100% grow up with the same values about money and also run up credit card bills they can’t pay off. Then if they are lucky enough to have any sort of moral compass they will be riddled with guilt and anxiety because of it. What a pernicious gift from mommy and daddy.

  62. Jack the Rhinestone Collared Bulldog says:

    2 bits of business on a very busy Monday morning:

    1) Ali Shanti posted 22 snaps of whatever smelly hippie fest she attended this weekend. There are several photos of her kids, as well as at least one snap of the lying LOLyer who lies dressed as a two-bit hooker. No exaggeration. She was dressed like that around her kids!

    2) I couldn’t help but think of Julia Allison Baugher playing the rape card with GU administration and her professors when reading George Will’s op-ed. Please don’t read more into that sentence than intended, as I can’t imagine another human being doing what Baugher did.

          When Will moved out on his wife and children, he found his office furniture dumped on his front lawn with a note reading, “Take it somewhere else, buster” (Salon, 2/12/98). Though the lamentable lack of shame in U.S. society is a common theme in Will’s writing, shame, like other principles he touts, seems to be for other people.

        • Duh, seriously? Grammarian says:

          A Will column criticizing Clinton for proposing tariffs on Japanese luxury cars (5/19/95) included no mention that Maseng Will’s public relations firm (his second wife) had received almost $200,000 from the Japanese Automobile Manufacturers Association. When asked, Will defiantly dismissed any need for disclosure, declaring (Washington Post, 5/23/95), “I was for free trade long before I met my wife.”

    If I were Ali Shanti (or one of her other personalities) I would concede to Greg. He has won every round, and he’s done so patiently and with the use of facts and education and his own experience. She should admit that there was no honor in her particular bankruptcy, and certainly none in the way she and Craigster enjoyed the high life knowing they wouldn’t pay for it. And then she should admit that the idea of writing a book about financial responsibility was delusional, and that she has lied about countless things. I would also appreciate if she removed those little animals from her eyelids. Set the eyepelts free, Shantitown! Do it for all the girls!

You have said three times that you tell the truth and you will answer Greg, but you have completely avoided Greg’s original question. Here it is again. Are the figures posted on the blog site regarding your bankruptcy accurate? Did you really default on $800K of consumer debt, including $13K owed to Nordstrom’s? That was the question posed to you which you said you would answer today.

            Jason Lowen Ali, you are on the record saying that “always knew” bankruptcy was going to be in your future. My question is did you take out all these loans and run up these credits cards and not pay them back because you were planning to bail on this debt and file bankruptcy down the road?

            I mean when I look at the list of debts you filed with the bankruptcy court, I’m shaking my head. It’s incredible. How does someone who claims to have been making millions not pay her debts? This isn’t something that happened over night. Where did your millions go Ali? You either lied about what you made or stashed everything into the trust you set up, out of reach of creditors.

            You accumulated over half a million dollars in unsecured debt, mostly credit cards and business loans and lines of credit. It looks like you borrowed all this money, ran up all this debt with absolutely no intention of paying back a cent.

            Last, according to bankruptcy records and court documents, you had clients who were suing you for malpractice and fraud, did you tell these people before or after they accepted your offer to settle about your impending bankruptcy?
