Doug Phillips jumps the shark


Deleted12

Recommended Posts

I think Doug Phillips' entire existence revolves around perpetual shark jumping.

So what is Doug Phillips prepared to die for anyway? He seems to be quite prepared to pontificate about most things (all the better if he can make a buck or two) but I don't see him joining the army, or doing anything much to help anyone. Even his sweaty, manly romp in the Amazon was done in air-conditioned comfort. :roll: Wanker.

He makes my brain hurt. Half the time I honestly don't even 'get' what point he is trying to make. He is a loon.

I am disappointed by this thread. I expected actual sharks. And then when I saw it said "a final farewell," I hoped that was Dougie's farewell to the public.

I know it's been said before, but how freaking creepy is it to couch this alleged tribute in language like "a final farewell" and "last living"? Let's remind the elderly vets that they are about to keel over dead a whole lot, shall we? It's like the whole thing isn't actually meant to be read or watched by the subjects.

That's our Dougie, picking their bones while they're still alive (and charging them for it). I'd call him a scavenger (oh, wait-I just did), but that would be an insult to vultures everywhere. They at least have the decency to wait for their meals to croak first.

Aw man!! I saw the website URL, and I thought HE was saying farewell to the public too! That's false advertising! :p

"Here is my view — if you do not have something worth dyeing for, you have nothing to live for."

Didn't realize he was interested in the fiber arts. I know where he can get some nice sock yarn blanks if he needs something to live for . . .

Oh good, I'm not the only one that noticed that. :lol:

I was trying to come up with some retort about yarn or something...but you did better!

First Draft: "Here is my view — if you do not have something worth making other people dyeing for, you have nothing to live for."

Second Draft: "Here is my view — if you do not have something worth making other people pay you dyeing for, you have nothing to live for."

Final Draft: "Here is my view — if you do not have something worth dyeing for, you have nothing to live for."

Hey Dougie, you can, you know, live for living. Kind of like you live for making a living off other people just a wee bit more simple than you are. Just a thought.

If that WAS a direct quote, don't these people proofread anything? The Vision Forum site is full of spelling and grammatical errors. Surely there must be one person there with a degree in English who could edit for them. You know, before he or she saw the light and realized that a college degree is wasteful, useless, and evil.

Because I'm starving, well, really hungry, I zeroed in on the Food as Culture video. You can PAY to see Dougie "experience" fish and chips in Scotland. 1. Like fish and chips are exotic food! 2. How the Hell do I get people to pay me to travel and eat!?!?

He will charge people for anything! Worse, people are paying. :think:

I'm traveling from the NW side of Portland to the SE side of Portland for some Vietnamese food tonight. Now that I've told all of you this much, that will be $10.00 apiece. Paypal and all major credit cards accepted.

Does Doug know that you can dye yarn (well, wool and protein fibers) with Kool-Aid? It's not just for drinking by his followers!

Why isn't Mr's M taking care of it?

From the Promo material:

When we last left Polly, she was sipping tea with the First Lady of the Commonwealth. But, alas, out of her lips slipped the fated and fabled foible of the fraternizing Facebook generation.

“Like totally, your highness. I, like, totally get it.â€

Faux pas!

Hours of Internet idioms and Twitter tweeting had left Polly prosaically impaired, verbally impoverished, and wallowing in a pool of inarticulation.

It’s a pickle. How shall Polly be polished?

Ever hopeful, her parents sent her to Mrs. Morecraft’s School of Elocution and Composition.

Well, dearest*, that would be because Mrs. Morecraft is a lady-female, and humans such as those can not teach nor instruct he-men/males of any age past the stage of the SOTDRT!!!

Previously posted this in its own topic but it really belongs here.

The grammar and misspellings are nothing compared to the nonsensical nature of the title of the photo, below. As well, if indeed the photo is of a cemetary cemeterry graveyard, there certainly are no headstones visible...

This is frankly making me a little concerned, because I'm currently dyeing a lot of organic merino for a spectacular fair isle sweater that I intend to knit for fall. Once that's finished, however... what do I have left to live for? .__.

Wait for more lovely merino (drool, envy) and dye it. Then find some other fibers and dye those. Then wait for still more merino. It really goes in circles. You just keep on dyeing! It's never final. Take that, Doug!

      Hello,
       
      I'm brand new to this forum. It was suggested to me by former and outspoken Remnant Fellowship member (Natasha Pavlovich) that I join this forum and put out here what I do. She also warned me that no one on here trusts, or trusts easily, and that I'd likely be assumed to be a Remnant plant or spy until vetted and verified as not that. Fair enough. 
      In short, and in truth, I'm a psychotherapist with 25 yrs experience in Franklin TN (less than three miles from RF incidentally) with a special interest in working with people formerly associated with cults, cult-like or any and all high control intitutions. I'm especially interested in working with those desiring not only deconstruct, recover and learn to thrive post-indoctrination, but those desiring to recapture or cultivate an authentic sense of theology without walls, or spirituality with borders. 
      To date, I've worked with former Amish, Mennonite, LDS/FLDS, FOG, and a those representing a whole slew of evangelical, fire and brimstone fear/shame/guilt-inducing institutions.
      I am especially interested in working with former Remnant Fellowship and Scientology members. I view RF as basically Scientology without the budget. 
      I'll leave it there. Much more can be gleaned about me through my website: therapyoutsidethebox.com or IG: @ therapyoutsidethebox
       
      Peace,
       
      Chris Hancock, LCSW
      Franklin, TN

      I'm a huge baseball fan. This year, MLB TV showed Liga Dominicana games in December and January and it was a fucking revelation. The players had so much fire and joy. The announcers with their charming DR accents were a blast, though I could hardly keep up with the Spanish. DItto the Serie del Caribe. As a White Sox fan, the MLB season is going to suffer by comparison. Te amo los Tigres del Licey!
