Vanity Is But An Illusion


Vanity thy name is Serin.

Do not leave comments of value at IAFF. They represent the only content Casey has left. We should probably send him store coupons for cereal and ramen and gift certificates to Souplantation.

Seriously, at this point you need to ask ethical questions of yourself as to the consequences of enabling the new IAFF. In addition is continued participation tacit approval of the historical revisionism he's performed? Does even well intentioned advice get push through the caseyworld reality distortion field and end up justifying, even inspiring greater crimes? Self control and circumspection are the watchword of the hour.

Fair point - I agree and I can go along with that.

Snowflake's blog is back AND SO AM I !
I served my time for cheating (it really only was a gray(tm) area) and reaffirm my firstness....

Northern Renter said...

Hello,
I'll refrain from trying to claim to be premiere posting and mention something else. Last night I watched "So You Think You Can Dance" and one of the contestants reminded me of Snowflake. She was enormously overweight and could barely shuffle up on the stage, but had paid $1400 to some sort of weekend dance gettogether where they had told her that she was a great dancer. Consequently, she tried out for the show and they told her point blank that she was pretty much hopeless. The Caseyness came when she was interviewed afterwards and she insisted that she was so remarkably talented and the unanimous opinion of everyone else was simply deluded. Sound familiar?

My question is why the h*ll a USA Today reporter was talking to you in the first place? Spamming your site on their internal bulletin boards must have paid off, apparently.

Well, the key is everytime I make a stock trade or buy or sell real estate, I issue a press release. So far, I've issued 2759 press releases and this one finally got noticed. I was tiring of sending them out with no result, but I finally got lucky. That's why I will always send out press releases, especially to USA Today.

::sarcasm off::

They called me. Get over it.

Now do my IAFF quality jokes also count as "comments of value" ?

They sure do! I will respectfully restrain from posting any more of my sweet(tm) jokes like this one:

What did the digital watch say to his mom? "Look mom no hands." Sweeeet !!!

Mouse And Pencil said...

At this point, giving Casey any attention is like giving a drunk a bottle of booze, because it's funny to watch him beat his kids.

Sweet Cashback said...

Oh and by the way:
"The Dude".....bite me, no more free firstness rides for you !

Northern Renter said...

Then again..... what if the book gets published and becomes a huge success, sort of a Real Estate equivalent to "English as she is Spoke" (look it up in Wikipedia if you need to). What would Snowflake do with his subsequent riches? I suspect Nigerian email would be involved in the answer.

Oh, and RobDawg wrote that "Self control and circumspection are the watchword of the hour." Sorry, I was circumscribed as an infant.

I've been a lurker on EN recently due to work obligations, something KC wouldn't understand, but this is too amazing to ignore.

I'm both flabergasted and curious about Snowflakes return. Sure, I knew he'd come back eventually; but returning this soon is amazing to me. While I know I should just ignore the twit I find myself wanting answers.

What's the status of his relationship with Galina?

Did she approve of his return?

Is he still living at Yulina's?

Is he still living with Galina?

What are the financial details of the book deal?

Is he actually dumb enough to fall for a self publishing scam?

Will he charge extra for a signed copy og the book?

Will anyone buy it?

The questions just keep coming. I suppose answers will present themselves in time. Snowflake will troll out blog posts with snippets of information in the hopes of reestablishing some lame advertisement revenue. But the biggest question of all... Why, oh why, do I give a shit.


Oh, Dawg. You certainly don't need my help coming up with images for EN, but I like the ones on this page, the two Dawgs seems particularly appropriate. http://www.crestock.com/blog/photography/speed-demon-photography-76.aspx

40K under market.

What was the sale price? Don't we want to know what percentage that was under market? Obviously SLC real estate is not hot IF YOU ARE BUYING PROPERTY UNDER THE MARKET CURRENTLY TODAY.

And its just going to go down, so his so-called equity could disappear.

BTW, there are only 19 homes in Holladay UTAH right now, according to homegain.com's MLS. Only 1 is very expensive, most are 300-400K range.

Mouse And Pencil said...

Do you really think the old queen is going to answer you, R-boy? He got PRESS, after all. (granted, it was the People Magazine of journalism, it's not like anyone respected in the field quoted him).

Respect the Pleather™!

Nigel says that he recently put a house under contract @ 40k below market. But did he say if he was the buyer or seller?

Mouse And Pencil said...

What's the status of his relationship with Galina?

Did she approve of his return?

Is he still living at Yulina's?

Is he still living with Galina?

Sadly, most likely.

What are the financial details of the book deal?

Casey never answers questions like that, just assume he took the worst terms available, had to poney up some Corporate Cash to do it, and will blow every deadline.

Is he actually dumb enough to fall for a self publishing scam?

Yes. You've been reading how long?

Will he charge extra for a signed copy og the book?

Will it ever actually be printed?

Will anyone buy it?

See: Amway, late night TV, Neauvae Riche (or however the fuck it's spelled), and any other get rich scam, and the "self help" books in the bookstore. Casey will be bottom feeding with any book he manages to get out there, there will be (sadly) a couple of greater fools. Guaranteed one sale to a balding pleather wearing queen in Utah.

hell, people spend money for in-game goods and gold in video games. Barnum was right, which is why people like Casey exist.

Rob Dawg said...

Swaby is clearly buying. The funny part is this $40k under market fantasy. Newsflash, that is the market. Any bets that this $40 thousand under is actually hundreds of thousands higher than the last time it sold?

I'll catch up with Duane and see if we want to wrap or serialize. Everyone lost interest when the object of our affections becaume old news. Now that the little equity vampire has returned from his self imposed exile we might have to ressurect the stakes and garlic posts.

Oh and enough of "craziness." We are talking about sleep til noon, no job, blogtard here. His little bubble gets burst when they run out of his favorite colored bendy straws at Jamba.

Stephanie J. said...

I wonder if Mocha's respect for him is still as strong now that he chose not to 'fade away' and to return despite his wife's wishes.

Niiiice art Rob Dawg. Seriously, eeeeek! Very skillful, whoever put that one together.

An Open Letter to Steve Serin

Steve

I know you and your family has tried very hard to get your brother to see the light.

It seems his addiction to blogging and ego is more powerful than family, his wife, or his faith.

He reminds me of a junkie who steals from friends and family while constantly lying just to get that next fix. At some point 1 of 3 things will happen.
- They go to jail.
- Professionals are brought in.
- They kill themselves in a fit of depression

I have a close friend who's son got in with drugs and no matter what they tried, it did not help. In the end, they had him taken to a bootcamp in the middle of nowhere. They had 2 "escorts" fly in, then wake him from bed, cuff him, and fly him to the other side of the country.

It was not pretty or cheap, and the family felt terrible having to do it, but they understood it was for the kid's own good. In the end, it worked.

I think it is time you, G, and the family [sans Casey] had a talk. First you need to do some research on camps or treatment centers that may help him.

Casey is spiraling out of control and taking all of you with him. Check with your parents to see if they would be willing to take funds from savings to pay for it.

Lacking that, would Casey and G agree to do missionary work in some country without internet access. It will break his addiction and maybe the constant small tasks with instant gradification will keep his AADD at bay until he matures.


It looks like time is starting to run short.
His ego is writing checks his butt cannot cash.

Notice the similiarites to a certain actress in the news lately who would do anything for fame and fortune, only to end up killing herself?


Better to break him in a controlled environment rather then come home one night and find he has taken his life after seeing the carnage & pain he has created.

Best of Luck

lurker said...

If Nigel is trying to flip houses, which is what it sounds like since he talks about buying and selling the houses fairly quickly. 40K off is a money losing deal. Most flippers try to buy around 70% of market - estimated repairs. There is enough overhead in buying and selling a house and enough risk that getting less than this is a money losing deal

(Ex) Train Wreck Watcher said...

@Mouse and Pencil: Most P.T. Barnum biographers agree that he was too smart to have ever called his customers "suckers". Don't insult the customer: that's Rule #1 that a lot of people (including certain aspiring bloggers) have not learned.

But to my question: anybody here with access to listings in Utah who can check on the status of the Utah wrap? Latest news out of Utah is that the housing market there is "getting back to normal" a phrase people in California and Arizona were hearing roughly a year or two ago. Curious as to how the Utah house saga ends . . .

Since so many are boycotting IAFF I thought I would share this jewel with you from timeline guy. I thought it was awesome:


103. Timeline Guy™
June 7th, 2007 at 8:27 am
Good morning all!

Thank you for being patine, even though I wasn’t an early riser™.

I think I owe you all an explanation of what has been going on. I know I alluded to the craziness™ of the last week, so here is more detail:

Because of the arrangement I made with “those of which we cannot speak”™, I hade to “activity of which we cannot speak”™, or else “those of which we cannot speak”™ would “consequence of which we cannot speak”™ would happen.

At first I thought that “activity of which we cannot speak”™ would be OK, but “those of which we cannot speak”™ re-iterated that “consequence of which we cannot speak”™ was indeed looming so “those of which we cannot speak”™ prevailed. I consulted with several highly qualified professional members of my team™ about doing “activity of which we cannot speak”™ in a way that “those of which we cannot speak”™ wouldn’t “consequence of which we cannot speak”™. After much negotiation, “those of which we cannot speak”™ acquiesed and allowed me to “activity of which we cannot speak”™ in a way that would not result in “consequence of which we cannot speak”™.

So now I am “activity of which we cannot speak”™ in such a way as to maximize my sweet™ potential for success without ever bringing attention to “those of which we cannot speak”™ or “those of which we cannot speak”™’s sister™, which would cause a “consequence of which we cannot speak”™.

Pretty clear, eh?

During my downtime, I was able to “activity of which we cannot speak”™ and open my “activity of which we cannot speak”™ while trying to negotiate an “activity of which we cannot speak”™ with several of my “those of which we cannot speak”™. Two of “those of which we cannot speak”™ were somewhat amenable to my offer of “activity of which we cannot speak”™, and one said that in order to reduce my “activity of which we cannot speak”™ down to “activity of which we cannot speak”™ which would be roughly equivalent to four and one half “activity of which we cannot speak”™, they would need to see my “activity of which we cannot speak”™ for the last “activity of which we cannot speak”™. Two more referred me to their “those of which we cannot speak”™ because it had been such a long time since I “activity of which we cannot speak”™ to them.

One other said that in May they “activity of which we cannot speak”™ my “activity of which we cannot speak”™ to another “activity of which we cannot speak”™ for “activity of which we cannot speak”™. They gave me the 800 number to get in touch with “those of which we cannot speak”™ to try and get a current “activity of which we cannot speak”™. I said all I wanted to do was “activity of which we cannot speak”™ so I could “activity of which we cannot speak”™ every dirty “activity of which we cannot speak”™ to “those of which we cannot speak”™.

I fully intend™ to spend most of today contactng the rest of “those of which we cannot speak”™ to get “activity of which we cannot speak”™ on a more current basis.

I feel cery blessed for having had the opportunity to “activity of which we cannot speak”™. I am just sorry that “activity of which we cannot speak”™ turned out so badly. I promised myself™ that I would finish working on this blog (ha ha! activity of which I CAN speak™) by 8:30 so I can spend my valuable time “activity of which we cannot speak”™. That was the deal with “those of which we cannot speak”™ so that I don’t “consequence of which we cannot speak”™.

Later, I’ll tell you about my efforts to open all of my “activity of which we cannot speak”™, and what happened when I found an “activity of which we cannot speak”™ in the “activity of which we cannot speak”™. I am sure it will make for an interesting blog!

SayWhat? said...

If you need any more proof that Casey isn't too bright, he's perfectly predictable.

By not sticking to his written agreement with his wife, he just humiliated her again in front of the world. I guess nothing Steve said sunk into his mushy brain.

But then Bill and Hillary are still married so maybe he doesn't have anything to worry about.

@Dawg: I'll catch up with Duane and see if we want to wrap or serialize. Everyone lost interest when the object of our affections becaume old news.

Um, no. The interest was still there -- pretty regular comments asking when the next installment was coming -- but the supply had dried up.

We're still interested.

Also interested if anything came out of Duane's dinner with Casey and Galina last Thursday. Is he going to give Casey yet another chance?

flailing forward said...

@ ha!
Heh, Nigel's getting smacked around a little over at SDCIA isn't he?

I like the way he still presents himself as an authoritative source on the SLC market. He's shown time and time again that he tells people what he wants them to hear, not how things are in reality. You'll get identical investment advice by calling a SLC realtor. Now USA Today reveals that he doesn't even drink his own kool aid.

flailing forward said...

It was nice to see him show a sense of humor for once though.

Rob Dawg said...

Lawnmower,
Point taken. The waning interest was in his organizing and my editting by continuing to beat a dead horse as it felt too much like spitting on a grave. There's been distractions as well I wanna talk about my bond futures spread mmmmm tasty.

You realize that Casey is a Commie plot, don't you?

The Soviet education ministry and Komsomol created the absolute WORST caricature of a capitalist speculative "biznessman", turned him loose in the West, and told him to blog about it in order to make us look at ALL businessmen and investors with revulsion.

Casey's a "Commiebot", running his "program".

But not the well well know scams, just the well know scams.

like if he fell for nigerian email it wouldnt be funny cuz its not beleivable anyone who could blog would fall for it. The scam book publisher is belebabble. So is the kiyosaki crap. the NLL ladies contract remains the 'high point' of his blog. oh man when he posted that lame contract it was sweet indeed.

I've got a sweet(tm) idea that's gonna make money for Snowflake and me. It's so simple. It involves only him, me, a sling, and a video cam. Haterz will pay to see him get f'ed and so would guys of my persuasion. I just know he has a SweetAss(tm).

Re-read the comment - not fed, f'ed. There is an apostrophe there. The sling mentioned is a good clue.

A porn carear (sp intentional) has already been suggested to the mouth breather, usually he and Galina though.

That jerk Nigel wrote this at DHC:

The blog is back...or is it? Much like Ross Perot's Texas Two-Step Presidential campaign in 1992, Casey Serin's foreclosure blog doesn't know up from down, black from white or on from off.

Normally a business that couldn't stay open would lose its followers very quickly. Not so with IAFF. Every outage leads to mass speculation in the blogosphere and even the mainstream media. Casey gets more press with the site down than with it up. Phenomenal!

Given the history of this site, I can't see it staying up without more drama. I wrote yesterday I thought Casey was finally moving in the right direction after he refunded his advertisers. Now I don't know what to think.

In '92, Ross Perot's indecision cost him a great many supporters. Casey however isn't trying to win a popularity contest. I think the site is staying, but it will be sporadic and filled with drama as usual.

P.S. Casey Serin is still a married man.

I couldn't agree more with the person who said that giving Casey any sort of attention is like giving booze to a drunk.

This Casey situation is no longer amusing or interesting to me. It has become just plain sad. Very sad.

Casey clearly has an emotional disorder of some sort and he is clearly causing much pain to the persons around him.

I no longer pull up his blog anymore as I know each hit it gets is another reason in Casey's mind to continue doing exactly what he has been doing for the past several months, and thus continue to slowly ruin his life and the lives of those close to him.
