CRAIG GLAZER CONSIDERS THE HOLIDAY SEASON AND THE HUMAN CONDITION!!!



TKC NOTE: An important and heartfelt note from Craig at the outset of the holiday season . . .

We are all special to somebody

It seems like just recently, I was spending a lot of time at a hospice right here in Kansas City. My mother, Rita, was on her deathbed and our immediate family and friends were visiting her on a daily basis. Mom had been in and out of the hospital for a year with various ailments, but as her final weeks and days approached it was clear she would not recover. As I visited her at hospice, there were a handful of other older people staying there for their final days whom I had known as a young man. I had occasion to visit not only with my mother, but several other older people at the facility. In speaking to these elderly men and women, the common thread that came back to me from them was ‘how are my family members and those I care about get along without me, will they be okay’. I found it odd that in their final days, most of these people were more interested in how their death and their departure from this Earth would hurt others and they wouldn’t be there for them in some fashion to help. I also noticed as the final days approached for all these people, their visitor attendance grew smaller and smaller until it was just the immediate family and then they were gone.

We all too often live life with the thought of our existence being important that our presence and participation in life will somehow be so overwhelming that we will never be forgotten. The simple truth is, in the end, famous or not, rich or poor there are usually just a handful of people whose lives are truly changed because we were part of their lives.

When we dream it often seems so real than we wake up and within minutes we have a hard time remembering what that weird dream was about. A few days after that vivid dream we don’t remember anything about it. Such is life itself, much like a dream. We all tend to have routines that don’t change much Monday through Friday and that slowly evolves into another redundant set of circumstances we repeat on a daily basis.

As we approach the Holiday season, it’s often a great time for reflection on just what we might mean to others, the value of our own existence. Many of us struggle through life to be more important than is necessary. I’ve come to find out that it’s those handful of people in life that count the most. Maybe it’s only temporary, the look in the eyes of children as they open a gift you gave them or took them someplace they enjoyed, perhaps it’s just sharing a family meal where everyone was in a good mood for once. Maybe it’s that feeling we get in our own home sleeping next to that special someone, knowing we are close to someone we care about, and maybe, in a nearby room, are sleeping children who count on us. Perhaps, if you are like me, a bachelor who lives alone, it’s that feeling of love and joy to have your two pets look you in the eye, knowing you will love them and feed them and for that they will love you unconditionally.

Yes, it’s the holiday season for all Americans whether you are Christian or Jewish, or even Agnostic or Athiest, it’s still that time of year when you like to feel of value to someone and know that you matter.

As we grow older, we lose things, we lose our pets, our family circle dwindles as our family members pass away with time and age and we are left with memories that are little more than snapshots of life the way we once knew it, the happy times. As we go through the traditional American Holiday of Christmas, let’s all try and reflect on the good times with all those that are no longer here to enjoy them with us. Let’s make an effort to forgive those in our lives who have upset us and most important, remember we are all valuable to somebody. You don’t have to be rich or famous to be valuable. Life is a long series of dreams and snapshots, its value is unknown. Try this Holiday season to remember that everybody counts to somebody.

Happy Holiday Season to all of you.

I had a dream

And in this dream I seen a fool, and this fool thought he could write.

This fool who isn't to bright. goes by Craig and fucks a lot of dirty leg.

Craig has money he wants you to know, that he made selling blow.

With this money Craig's writer writes trying to make you think he is bright.

But we all know this Jew from KC who has no clue, will lie and cheat, trying to fuck you.

So Craig act like a man with a plan and fly your ass to the land of sand, get you a camel and a Kardashian, so we in KC never see you the Jew around here again.

As someone else said, "Glazer sure found a good writer because he is to stupid to write this good and even Hearne has said that to more than one person." The joke is on you people who fall for this shit.

There are a couple people on here, and now they call you a Jew which I am and proud to be one, don't let these angry dogs detour you from this great work. Some of us deeply enjoy reading these items. Thank you. Happy Holiday.

You know what I’m fucking sick of? People trying to make me play nice for Glazers sake. Sure, there’s a time and a place for being kind. I love puppies and hugging and complimenting people and all that pansy shit, but there’s also a time and a place for screaming and shouting and calling people shit-eating, sister-fucking piles of dog semen such as Glazer. And I have never been and will never be someone to shy away from pointing out the dog semen when I see it.

But every so often I see something that absolutely burns my ass, and it always falls into one of two closely-related categories: a dig me or feel sorry for me post done by Glazer, the idiot boy. And to those who post how great they think Glazer is, I have a simple message for you:

Fuck you.

Who died and made you the goddamned Glazer is a great guy police? If TKC was cleansed of everything but your stupid goddamned affirmations and messages towards Glazer saying how you love him and love that fucking club I would leave it faster than you can say “Cum on her butt”. What I and many people say are not fucking discourse, but the crap you so called lovers of Glazer make are very unsociably acceptable public masturbation.

And what’s so fucking wrong with discussing the fact Glazer can’t write or do anything else but steal, snitch and fuck dirty legs? You know what, Honey Boo Boo’s, If we don’t discuss Glazer, then Glazer goes around thinking the whole fucking world loves him. If we just sit around and participate in the enormous positivity circle jerk you seem to want us all to be, then this crap Glazer is fucking us with right now and in the future is only going to fuck us harder and faster, and not in the good, “say I’m a dirty girl” sort of way. If you want us to be a castrated, toothless group of readers who will shit sunshine and ponies to a Glazer post then you are out of your fucking mind. So plug your fingers in your ears cover your eyes if you want and pretend that everything will be ok if we just quit talking about it. But I have news for you it isn’t going to happen because I and others are angry. I’m fucking furious. And I sure as shit ain’t gonna bite my tongue.

So no, I will not be participating in “jerking off Glazer on TKC." Instead, because I am a complete asshole and not at all ashamed of it, I am going to vent as much bile today as my doctor allows. So you three people who love Glazer and your goddamned false comments of only two people hating him and your dreams of Glazer being so great and messages about how much you love him written in the goddamned sand can suck a dick. I’m mad. I’m mad, and I won’t be silenced.

WILDMAN!

Seems like you took a long time to write that and really thought it out WILDMAN.

You may have a a problem that doesn't have anything to do with Craig at all. Sounds like a an obsession. Just breathe okay? It'll be alright. You've taken a nice column than Craig wrote and turned into a mountain in your mind. Just take a couple of seconds and maybe call somebody you love. That would be more productive than spewing all of that hate.

We're all on your side here WILDMAN and we want you to be a productive member of society. It's in all of our interests.

Personally, I like what Craig has to say most of the time and I look forward to his posts. But that's just me. I'm no WILDMAN.

I find the idea of about only three people posting on here who like Craig over the so called maybe 2 who don't like him to possibly be the real truth here.

Mr.glazer sir,
I just wanted to tell you what a wonderful article that was.
I must admit that I just stumbled upon this blog tonight, first time.I have heard of you over the years but that's it.
I actually had my wife and two little ones come sit and I read your article to them. It was something I think we'll all remember (I know I will)
I am a simple hard working man,third generation chimney sweep.i cut wood in winter and farm.
I think my two boys are proud of me. We don't have alot but we do have love,that's what's most important.
I take it by all the horrible comments on here that you are a celebrity and probably a rich man, but what you wrote tells me you're also a good man with his priorities straight and have a big heart.
Thank you again, from the Wheeler family.

No family man who knows all of Craig's history and the things he has done in front or in next room to underage kids is going to vomit such a post.

This friend of mine's ole man some how came into a lot of money don't remember the whole story but anyway he didn't work. Really strange family the mother lived in St Louis for some reason. But it was Glazer's Mom who use to sneak over and have hanky panky afternoons with the kids ole man while we was in school or they thought we was over at the pool. This went on for maybe 2 years have no idea what went on after we graduated since we was off to college. So guess the whole Glazer family is some very strange people. Then this worship peace about her? Sorry I find it funny as in ha ha a joke.

Margarita on the Rocks
Given the way that you objectify women as pieces of meat designed for your sexual pleasure I’m sure your mother is quite proud of the way you turned out. For her sake she can probably blame your dad since boys typically get their “instructions” on how to treat women from their fathers. Actions speak louder than words and there is no greater tribute to the women who raised us than to bang a drunk chick in a bathroom stall. Stay golden phony boy!

Craig, I love your writing when you write about something other than yourself. I am sorry that you mother ended up in this situation, but I have been through it too, with my beloved mother in law. Thank you for being a devoted son. It means a lot to elderly people, especially those who are ailing.
Dont let the haters get to you on this one. I dont always respect or agree with you, but you were spot on here.

Where do they come from? To stay up all night and write hate mail on such a sweet story. I don't know what Glazer did or didn't' do, the story has a kind feel to it, why jump on that? It's clear that the hater writer is likely the same person over and over. I read this blog a few times a month and this person writes the same awful comments. Clearly not true ones. What a sick twist. Is your life that terrible?

I read the Wheeler Family comment above. I think that makes all of it worth doing Glazer. It seemed sincere. If just one person or family gets that much pleasure out of what you do then, yes, its all worth the headache of the hater group. Regular readers know they will always be there. We know they are nuts. We know they make most of that smelly attack up. As a KC guy, I have read about you for years. You never hide from the truth. I don't think anyone has been in the public eye more than you guys, including Stan, your dad, except a few ballplayers. Keep on writing these articles. Thanks.
