BOOK Is Alive! It’s Alive!

So, this is weird.

Ryan McGeorge Rogers is Global Community Manager at HIVE, which just ended their annual shitshow, sans Donkey & Dadsers but with Marianne Williamson. Rogers’s HIVE bio indicates “a background in event and media production, US politics, and community organizing. He has produced over 700 events, 2 feature films, 3 stand-up comedy specials, 2 docu-series, a massive Halloween festival, several magazines., a pop-up cultural center, a women’s roller derby league, 9 Albums and many other video, audio and podcast productions.”

I’m tight with the folks at the IMDb, who are most thorough. Rogers’s only credits on the site consist of two grade-z standup specials headlining a deceased comedian. No “feature films” are listed.

Much more interesting than Rogers’s questionable bio is the name of Rogers’s IG page: EXPERIMENTS IN HAPPINESS. The description: “In this age; learning to be happy, kind, passionate and truly alive are all revolutionary acts.” Goodness, that sentence reads like the writerly writing of Rainbow, the catalyst for love. Surely this isn’t a coincidence?

Could Rogers be producing Julia’s podcast, which may or may not come to pass? We know her work ethic! We also know how notoriously cheap Donkey is. Even cheaper than Ryan Allis, who won’t provide his top employees with health insurance but has the money to traipse around the world with his latest piece. Presumably, Donk could hustle Rogers into working for free, just like she did the folks on the abandoned Upward Spiral project.

It’s worrisome!

  1. Maybe it’s not a podcast, but a series of YT videos on a channel that he produces and she hosts. She would not give up the opportunity to ham it up on camera and make it all about her. Mini-documentaries and an interview format. It’s possible. And a better idea, conceptually, for this subject than a book. Good luck monetizing it though. (Ugh, I used the word “monetize.”)

    • JFAing to add another possibility: he stole her title, and is running with this idea himself. That would be a lot funnier.

      • Unicorn Studded Rainbow Named Shirley (NOT "Julia Allison")- 1st Ever Commenter on the New Site! 🎉🎊🍾 (NOT Ali Shanti/Alexis Neely/Alexis Katz)

        Even more so if he makes it a big success.

      • I prefer the first possibility. JA not listening to her interviewee’s responses while waiting anxiously to reopen her maw is my favorite Donkey-in-distress pose.

  2. Desperate to cleanse her internet presence of here, she still has two stray facebook pages with her name and photo, some with dopey stuff on it still, including liking the page of Repub. Kirk, lol.

    • We’re still showing up on the third page of her google results. Two entries at the top of the page. However, in “searches related to Julia Allison,” located at the bottom of the first results page, RBD has several first-page entries for “julia allison engaged,” julia allison alex marson,” and “julia allison san francisco.”

        • This makes me happy, bitchface! I don’t even need to do an experiment!

      • Unicorn Studded Rainbow Named Shirley (NOT "Julia Allison")- 1st Ever Commenter on the New Site! 🎉🎊🍾 (NOT Ali Shanti/Alexis Neely/Alexis Katz)

        Maybe if people put “Julia Allison” in their screen names?

        • yeah because i fail to see how outdated articles can rank higher than this site /cite/sight that has weekly and current information on Julia Allison

          • Because Julia Allison or someone related to Julia Allison has hired some reputation defender company to defend Julia Allison from Julia Allison on social media.

          • We were listed twice on page one of her google results for at least two years.

            Yep, somebody’s scrubbin’ and not just at Wikipedia. But are these erasures an effort to pacify future in-laws Bernie and Ellen or is Julia getting ready to debut her “project,” or C) both of the above?

          • Unicorn Studded Rainbow Named Shirley (NOT "Julia Allison")- 1st Ever Commenter on the New Site! 🎉🎊🍾 (NOT Ali Shanti/Alexis Neely/Alexis Katz)

            I wonder what Julia Allison has in store that she’d actually pay to have Julia Allison’s web presence scrubbed so thoroughly

          • Could Julia Allison be readying a podcast featuring Julia Allison interviewing her grifter pals who can’t get a word in edgewise because Julia Allison would prefer talking about Julia Allison?

  3. I’d like to think it’s some sort of F.U. to Judy… like she sweet-talked him out of some service with no thanks or acknowledgement and most definitely, no money. In retribution, he steals her book info and rubs his hairy balls and ass all over it on his instagram page for LOLs.

  4. OT: Did Cory & Adelle, AKA Christopher and Sophia, have to sell the Tesla and are now hitching to Camp Septic?

  5. Why do these people have to be so fake and gross. And cheap! My god. No wonder they all use aliases.

  6. OT: Ryan Allis, Julia Allison’s Camp Septic sponsee, and his piece experienced a horror to end all horrors in the parking lot at target. (I love how the loss of his mother’s wedding ring is relegated to a parenthetical.)

    Half Pint will need an extra helping of aya upon his BM arrival.

    • Was he planning to propose? Why bring your mother’s wedding ring to Burning Man, and why keep it in your van? And maybe don’t shop at night in a loaded van in a high crime area?

      My car was broken into several times the same way when I lived in the SF Bay Area. One time thieves just went down the street and hit one car after another on the passenger side. This was back in the day when they stole car radios. My insurance company even sent me a nasty letter telling me I was having too many break-ins and to park smarter. One happened in the driveway of a mansion in Oakland hills, I guess that was too careless of me.

      These Burning Man vans are sitting ducks for highway robbery. LaPhlegm got hers broken into a few years ago too.

      • Yes, I thought proposal too. Will we have a double engagement at Camp Septic?

        • Unicorn Studded Rainbow Named Shirley (NOT "Julia Allison")- 1st Ever Commenter on the New Site! 🎉🎊🍾 (NOT Ali Shanti/Alexis Neely/Alexis Katz)

          I still believe that since Son of Sam got away unscathed during the manic period between Thanksgiving and Birthcray, he ain’t proposing.

          • Unicorn Studded Rainbow Named Shirley (NOT "Julia Allison")- 1st Ever Commenter on the New Site! 🎉🎊🍾 (NOT Ali Shanti/Alexis Neely/Alexis Katz)

            His friends say he’s going to propose at BM? Maybe they’re right. I don’t know him, but I know human nature very well and can often predict behavior

      • Unicorn Studded Rainbow Named Shirley (NOT "Julia Allison")- 1st Ever Commenter on the New Site! 🎉🎊🍾 (NOT Ali Shanti/Alexis Neely/Alexis Katz)

        Wouldn’t a proposal feature an engagement ring, not a wedding one?

        • A marriage,then. Seriously, why else do you think he’d bring, of all things, his mither’s wedding ring to Burning Man? Why don’t you enlighten me?

          • Unicorn Studded Rainbow Named Shirley (NOT "Julia Allison")- 1st Ever Commenter on the New Site! 🎉🎊🍾 (NOT Ali Shanti/Alexis Neely/Alexis Katz)

            I have no idea why he’d bring that. Maybe he wanted to sell it? I have no idea who he’s fucking or if he’s involved with anyone – I tune out most of the woos. I just thought it would be unusual to use a wedding ring to propose. No need to jump down my throat

          • You seem to find the need to challenge every minor point anyone makes. It is getting annoying. Think twice before posting if you don’t want honest blowback.

          • Unicorn Studded Rainbow Named Shirley (NOT "Julia Allison")- 1st Ever Commenter on the New Site! 🎉🎊🍾 (NOT Ali Shanti/Alexis Neely/Alexis Katz)

            Get over yourself. I asked an honest question

          • I’m still waiting for you to enlighten me with your better answer about the wedding ring, since you felt it so important to nitpick.

          • Unicorn Studded Rainbow Named Shirley (NOT "Julia Allison")- 1st Ever Commenter on the New Site! 🎉🎊🍾 (NOT Ali Shanti/Alexis Neely/Alexis Katz)

            What crawled up your ass and died? I asked a question. So sorry it didn’t meet your standards

          • From your post response right above mine, “I know human nature very well and can often predict behavior.”

            Get a fucking clue.

        • Overreact much? Maybe stop nitpicking everybody’s posts and you won’t get smacked down next time. I’m not the only one who is becoming annoyed by you, so knock it the fuck off and get a little self-awareness.

          • Unicorn Studded Rainbow Named Shirley (NOT "Julia Allison")- 1st Ever Commenter on the New Site! 🎉🎊🍾 (NOT Ali Shanti/Alexis Neely/Alexis Katz)

            You win. You’ve harassed me out of here. It’s just not worth it anymore. RBD is no longer a fun distraction for me, thanks to people like you. But if the tests I’m waiting for show that my cancer came back, I’ll be sure to let you know so you can enjoy it. You seem the type.

          • Wow, Grifty. Why do you feel the need to be so confrontational? If you don’t like what Unicorn has to say, just move on.

          • My children! My children! You are upsetting your aunt Gilly! I think we best sing a show tune:

          • Remember my charges, this site is supposed to be fun. I know we squabble from time to time, but sometimes it’s better just to lean back and relax for a few seconds before typing anything you might regret.

          • hoping that you don’t flounce uni – enjoy your comments.

            wishing the best of health for you too (hugs)

        • SSSF I left this in the wrong place, I don’t know how to use this site, but: I’m sorry to hear that Unicorn, I really hope everything turns out ok with you and your health and I’m sorry you’re leaving the basement, one doesn’t speak for all.

          • I, too, am sorry about your health, Unicorn Shirley. If you feel you must leave, I’ll understand, but I hope you find your way back to the basement.

          • I also hope you get good health news, Unicorn. And I hope you decide to stick around.

          • Aww, Uni, pls don’t go! And please don’t have cancer!

            As someone who has been on the receiving end of Grifty’s nitpicking every. single. post. (& don’t you *dare* deny that, Grifty), it’s rather rich that she would even accuse someone else of that, but that’s neither here nor there — A difference of opinion or interpretation is fine! Hell, I figured he had them because he was going to pawn them — isn’t he in the process of being foreclosed upon?

          • Thanks for piling on after I apologized, Brayella. Any conflicts we’ve had are very long past and I know you know that. Things have been very civil for a very long time, so I don’t appreciate this at all.

          • Pls see my note below, which is the response I made after this one, in order of comments as I came to them. “Piling on“ really isn’t my style nor was it my intentions towards you. Honestly.

    • HHmm, can imagine some noble Robin Hood’s just waiting for this time of year for some wealth redistribution.

      Also, could be an insurance scam. a few of these seem to happen and they chronicle what was stolen like a cover for a story/claim.

      • I’m hoping it’s a modern day Robin Hood. Maybe s/he’ll next break into Allis’s Dolores Park home and give away his furnishings!

    • 800 rv for rent number on side of vehicle is an invitation for break-in.

      also: he looks very happy for someone who just forfeited a multi-million dollar deposit on an unsellable house.

      • Because he’s in love! And soon Ryan will install his latest piece as second-in-command at HIVE because that’s what he did for his three former girlfriends.

      • I’m a bohemian hippie who rejects mainstream consumerist culture! I believe in radical self-reliance! So I’m going to pay thousands dollars to rent a huge, gas-guzzling RV; buy tickets for a corporate-planned event; stock up on plastic crap from Target or Walmart; dress up in the same tutus, onesies, moonboots, and face paint as the other 59,000 attendees; and network with a bunch of Silicon Valley influencers! Peace, man!

  7. I’m sorry to hear that Unicorn, I really hope everything turns out ok with you and your health and I’m sorry you’re leaving the basement, one doesn’t speak for all.

  8. I apologize for snapping at Unicorn. I also have a pretty intense backstory right now that I am not going to share here, and it has made me more irritable and intolerant than usual. Of course I wish Unicorn well healthwise. I will try to ignore whatever annoys me in the future. This is supposed to be a fun place and I will keep reminding myself of that.

    • Please start with ignoring my above reference to past differences we had, because I’m over it and I feel certain that you are too. More importantly, I’m sorry for whatever you are going through. We’re all going through some stuff. Peace, and regards.

    • I know the hell you’ve been going through, Grifty, and I think everyone here would understand but I respect your privacy.

      🥰❤️🐶😚

    • Hey Grifty. I’m also sorry that you have stuff going on in your life that makes you testy, and I hope it works out for you.

    • I’ve been through some dark times in recent years but always felt a sense of escape, hope, humor and a little less isolation here. I hope you feel the same, too, and see your way clear of the bad soon. And as they say in that lovely Dame Judi Dench movie, “Everything will be all right in the end… if it’s not all right then it’s not yet the end.” *abrazos fuertes*
