I couldn't let a blog go without a mention of the rubbish that is celebrity big brother. Celebrity heh, now that is an oxymoron if I ever saw one. How many of the people in the house can actually call themselves a celebrity. I could count them on one finger I think!

I should point out now that I do not watch this rubbish. The other half does, usually to my snorts of ‘watch what you like, I am playing poker'. 

To me, it just about sums up everything that is wrong with society.

 

The bullying of Gary (and it really lies uncomfortably with me that he is even on there, he just doesn't seem ‘well'.

The nastiness of Leslie. Surely people can see through him by now, he is just a nasty guy who I think is so used to throwing his weight around that he can't hack it when others fight back or don't do exactly as he wants.
Kellie Maloney. Whining constantly is not a good look for you. Make your choice in life and get on with it.

Frenchy. Really do I need to say more?
George, you are on here for just taking the mickey out of others. Not the greatest of examples of the youth of today?

Lauren, oh bless you Lauren. You are doing it just for the chubby kids eh. That is so lovely of you. I am sure the fee you are being paid will also help you to pay for more yet surgery to change how you look like. Fake much?
And finally, I come to the one I really detest. White Dee. Famous for being lazy and expecting life to pay you a living. I don't believe for one second your depression (cleared up pretty quick when you realised you could earn £100k eh? You are not a celebrity. You are a sponger. You think you are owed something and it will just be handed to you, like so many others.

And this is where we can learn a lesson in poker.
Poker, like real life, doesn't owe you anything. If you want to get better at it, you have to work harder. Your aces don't deserve to win.

I recently had an argument with someone on another forum who was complaining ‘My aces were cracked by 83o and the guy shouldn't have even been in the hand'. My point was, who says he shouldn't be in the hand? He paid his money, he has a right to play any hand he wants, in any way he likes. If you are such a bad player that you can't profit from that, then you are not going to be a winning player anyway.

Poker doesn't owe you anything. If you want to get better, work harder.

If not you, who? If not now, when?

Ok, so now I have read two of your blogs.....meh! Everyone except you is stupid. No one is accountable for their actions. Poker doesn't owe you anything. Your aces don't deserve to win(Seriously?). Try this Ice Queen; Google "meaningless platitudes." Then try "trite phrases."
Poker is a game of imperfect information subject to the cruel deprivations of random chance. You can play your hand perfectly, get all of the money in as a 99% favorite and still get crushed by a freak bit of horrible luck. Some frustration is part of the game. What you might want to mention is that dealing with your emotions and your luck(good and bad) in an exemplary manner is a huge key to long term success in poker.Often there is absolutely nothing you could have done better in any one particular situation. Trying to study the vagaries of random chance is a futile pursuit. In the course of your poker career what other players do is infinitesimally consequential compared to how well you manage your own game and its variance. Finally, lose the sour attitude. It is a fast way to alienate everyone. If you find someone or something tiresome keep it to yourself. Most assuredly other cogent minds will have already noticed. Those less perceptive than you are blissfully unaware and those far more perceptive than you are miles ahead of your disparaging commentary. Find something interesting to discuss or remain silent. Poker should be as pleasant an experience for ALL participants as is humanly possible. Humor the less intellectually gifted, the gamblers, degenerates and other denizens of casinos and card rooms worldwide. In the end, they pay all the bills.

I'm sorry amscafeaus, but what is the point of a personal blog, if not to express personal opinion and vent?

"Finally, lose the sour attitude. It is a fast way to alienate everyone. If you find someone or something tiresome keep it to yourself" - he says in his sour rant...


Keep up the good work Ice - pay little or no attention to people who think their opinion is more valid than others because they use words like "infinitesimally".


" Humor the less intellectually gifted" - ok, I will....

That was a very nice 2nd post in three and a half years on here. Very flowery, very verbose. It's amazing how this forum has managed to function without your insight for so long, but thankfully now, we are all saved. Finally someone is here to put us all right.

Google "pompous twat"

I couldnt disagree with you more, Celebrity Big Brother is one of my favourite shows and i watch it every night. People who knock these programmes should just turn over and watch something else
 IceQueenAce8/28/2014 10:53:33 AM GMT
@amscafeaus I am glad you find my posts controversial, that is the whole point. They will get a lot more 'moany' I can assure you. You don't have to read it, honestly. I won't be offended Tongue
And yes, you aces don't 'deserve' to win. Infact, 3 out of 10 times, they probably won't Big Smile

@yout85 Thanks but don't worry about me. If everyone agreed with what I said, what a boring forum this would be. But thanks for the support.

@doubletop777 Good innit!! (Don't let the other half know I said that!!!!!). I watch it so I can complain lol.
Who do you want to win? I am firmly in the camp of Gary winning atm, I think he gets a sore end of the deal and he is great. And Point Break is one of my favourite films.
Do you watch normal BB? (I don't, I don't see the point in it).

Is that all? man I thought this guy was going to tell us the meaning of life or some thing,maybe he thought he was in church or something,sound off like a preacher man...lol...2 post really.?
 Heskor8/28/2014 2:53:05 PM GMT
I love to argue just to get steam off when my aces got cracked against other crazy hands and then it let me cool down and then i can refocus on playing on the table and have fun playing the next hand and hopefully build a solid mental game, but honestly i tilt a lot and tend to go nuts too much sometime and lose some buyin that should not have been lost if i kept my calm lol. Anyway have fun mate and good luck at the tables!

Blog-a regular record of your thoughts, opinions, or experiences that you put on the internet for other people to read.

Hi Ice Queen,or should we start calling you Sourpuss!!
I thought it was an interesting read and can't really argue with your opinions on the big brother 'celebs' .My daughter watches this and I only know a couple of them such as Gary Busey and Audley Harrison.As for Dee,I don't know if being on benefits is what caused her depression or if it is just an excuse to claim long term benefits.I have a friend who has mental health issues and unfortunately the only time people see him is when he is feeling well,the other 90% of the time he stays inside his house alone,catch 22.
Keep up the good work and I look forward to your next blog. Smile

" He paid his money, he has a right to play any hand he wants, in any way he likes."

That has been my p0ker mantra for years. Probably saved my sanity.
 Mober8/28/2014 7:21:30 PM GMT
The only oxymoron here IceQueen. is your own post.
You are talking about lessons in life and you still havent learned yours. Smile
The year is 2014 and you are still watching big brother....
 pinotte8/28/2014 7:50:54 PM GMT
I completely agree that a moron have the right to sit at a poker table and play any cards he wants.
However you cant deny the right of the other player to tell him what he his thinking of is play and that he is a moron.

I really dont see your point as better poker player.

Loosing a hand to a moron does not make you a worst poker player neither that winning a hand to the same moron make you a better player.

If you play cash game you loose a hand to a moron no problem in the long term you will get it back.
Hoever if it is a tournament you are getting out by a moron then you cant come back.

There is plenty of peoples here that made comments about loosing to moron and i think you also did and there is nothink wrong with that. Agree Agree Agree Agree Agree Agree Agree

Ok imagine this.

A player plays badly. He takes your money in a bad beat. You proceed to tell him he is a fish and why. He doesn''t make the same mistake again and you don't win your money back off of him.
Who is the moron? Tongue
The lesson: Never tap the glass Smile

Let me point out, I do this. And then I am annoyed with myself afterwards.
Infact, EVERYTHING I moan about in all my blog posts, are something I do. I am not sitting in my castle preaching, I am just as bad as the peasants lol Big Smile

Indeed. In fact I'd go as far as to say that the person sat at the table shouting "Fish" is actually the table's fish.

I might have aimed a little bit too high with my post. It was intended as constructive criticism. I have and will continue to read everything I can about poker. I am always hungry for knowledge especially the kind that can be profitable. I was hoping IceQueenAce might realize that her post was not very well thought out. Perhaps she might try harder in the future to publish something that actually is useful, educational, humorous or at the very least insightful. It seems all I have done is stir up a crowd that insists it's OK to publish drivel for mass consumption. Sadly this is the modern world, thought and effort don't seem to be required anymore, just content. Buckets and piles of steaming excrement that passes for "writing" these days, how profoundly sad.

Oh by the way; my postings are now up to 4. If I am not careful I might become a "BLOGGER" :0

This is virtually the exact point being made by Ice about Big Brother...

Maybe you should give it a go???


I admit there's not a huge difference between constructive criticism and rudeness, so it's not always easy to differentiate between the two... but...

"Buckets and piles of steaming excrement that passes for "writing" these days, how profoundly sad"

This is definitely rudeness.

I am not sure you have achieved your aim of 'constructive'. I know you don't like my blog, but I don't know why. Which bits don't you agree with? I assume you are watching big brother so will know what I am talking about?
Maybe break my post down, like I am breaking yours down.

This isn't a blog about poker, nor have I claimed it to be. It is a blog about society and how I perceive society. Then it links to how we may use these thoughts in poker. I wouldn't make a pure poker blog, there are many many posters here that could do a way better job than I could.

I thought it out a lot. I had to think of a topic, content, link to poker and how this can better our play. Infact, it took about 4 days of thought before I even put anything on paper. Thanks though.

It is not supposed to be educational. It is just my thoughts. I want it to be controversial, I want discussions. I tell the 4 year old's in my class they have their own minds. I NEVER tell them their ideas are wrong. Because it is their idea's. I wouldn't have my blog any other way either.
Infact, a lot of my teaching is about children being their own person with their own thoughts. It is called creativity.

And this is where you really fall down, because you have just posted insults both to myself and 'the crowd'. Infact maybe your posts could be described as how you described mine. I would never be so rude as to say that though.

Consider this though:

There are many types of writing for an audience and for myself.

When I want to remember what I need to buy, I make a shopping list.
When I want to write to parents to describe their children's learning, I write a newsletter.
When I want to raise money for the school, I will use a piece of persuasive text.
When I want the children to know what they can do to improve their work, I use instructive writing.
When I needed to pass my degree, I wrote a dissertation using academic writing.
When I want to put down some general thoughts that others might find interesting and that would invoke discussion, I use a blog.

I will let you work out which one of those texts I use in my blog Big Smile


I don't ask you to read my blog and I certainly don't ask you to agree with it. But I would kind of ask you don't use the space here to call something I have taken time to do, as 'steaming excrement'. Just don't read it.

That said, I have already decided what my next one is going to be about. It will have half the forum nodding in agreement and the other half disgusted they even opened it to read it. So maybe you might want to avoid it, to save your blood pressure.

I hope you understand where I am coming from.

Enjoying your blog Icequeenace, keep it up. The blogs at BRM are in the process of elevating this forum back to what it was several years ago: a source of poker information, a certain amount of fun and silly stuff, and a healthy dose of real opinions which keep the pot stirring. Thumbs Up
 callie288/29/2014 1:04:08 PM GMT
was a bit angry at some of the responses on this one untill i thought about it,your doing exactly what you wanted to and stirred the pot,looking forward to the next one,i say kick the hornets nest and see what happens...

Excactly. The controversy as promised by IQA, is delivered in the form of amscafeaus.

IceQueenAce did you create a dummy (no pun intended) profile for amscafeaus, to bash your own blog?
In that case: cool... Cool

It would explain the few posts he has, conveniently popping up to bash your blog...
 IceQueenAce8/29/2014 1:29:12 PM GMT
haha no, though I did consider someone had done that, but date gives it away Tongue
 amscafeaus8/30/2014 10:22:49 AM GMT
Not controversial at all IceQueenAce. I think your writing shows little substance. It is however, indicative of the current social media culture in which our society is immersed. Your entire post is about what is wrong with everyone else, including painfully enough the characters on a reality television show. Why not use your forum to tell a good story? One that has meaning, humor, insight or relevance to some gaming issue. This is after all a gaming site. I mean what is novel about grousing? Writers seek an audience, to find one you have to have the ability to say something. Look for something to say. Being "controversial" is not a subject. Besides if that is all you seek look to Miley Cyrus, Lady GaGa or perhaps a young Madonna. They sort of defined the action plan for that tired line of publicity mongering. Your object ought to be to entertain. Get to work.

------------
That last bit was an indictment of the vast majority of current "writing." Predominantly the kind found on the internet. It was not specifically aimed at IceQueenAce. I was giving voice to my frustration with the kind of stream on consciousness style that blogging and instant publishing have created.
 IceQueenAce8/30/2014 11:27:03 AM GMT
Yet again you use a lot of big words, without addressing any points other than 'it is not good'.

Yet you keep coming back.

If you dislike it, don't read it.
 amscafeaus8/30/2014 11:48:10 AM GMT
I "came back" to read the subsequent comments and clarify my posting. I honestly don't wish you anything but the best. Writing well on a consistent basis is one the the hardest things on the planet to do. I would love for your blog to do great things. I have found however that someone's honest evaluation of one's work is an incredibly useful thing to receive. What you do with it is up to you. But I mean you no malice. Take some suggestion or don't, just realize that feedback is a good thing. You rarely learn anything of worth from praise.
 IceQueenAce8/30/2014 12:01:54 PM GMT
that's the thing. you haven't given me any feedback.

sure, you have used a lot of big words. but essentially all you say is 'it isn't very good'.

You haven't told me what you think is WRONG in my post. I don't have any idea which bits you disagree with.
Do you think gary isn't being bullied? Do you think dee isn't a sponger? Do you even have any idea what I am talking about?

and if I don't know what you think is wrong, how can I even attempt to change anything?

And its not my 'work'. I am not trying to write well. I am putting down my thoughts, that some people may, or do, find interesting.

I just find it ironic that you are hammering my blog for having no substance, yet your replies have no substance, even though I spent the time quoting each part of your reply and and what I thought about what YOU had said.
I infact have spent more time giving you substantial answers than you have bothered with.

Using big words to say not much at all like you have isn't big and it isn't clever and I see right through it. You see, I am English, I grew up with Tony Blair and David Cameron Tongue
 crash588/30/2014 1:07:06 PM GMT
I have to admit, for someone that doesn't watch the show, you seem to know a lot about the players in it,i don't watch these kind of shows either,and i couldn't even tell you one name in them., but again a good blog entryIQA, so keep up the good work, looking forward to reading more.
 amscafeaus8/31/2014 4:10:38 AM GMT
How about Winston Churchill, George Bernard Shaw and Samuel Coleridge? You are English after all. Very specifically what I find to be wrong with your piece is exactly what was readily apparent in my previous posts. It's vapid. It has no substantive matter as its subject. The matter you have chosen for your subject is petty, your commentary on that subject matter is self-obsessed, derogatory, and once again uninteresting, lacking any fresh insight and completely without humor. So, "SPECIFICALLY" my suggestions are: find some subjects that will interest and entertain your readers, look for humor to add some levity and entertainment value to your words and finally seek to express yourself verbally in a tighter more succinct style. Beyond that what I mean to convey to you is any writing that comes across as negative or caustic without substantial humor largely gets tiresome rapidly. I can not think of anyone who enjoys perusing a litany of complaints real or imagined without some kind of payoff at the end. Once again, good luck IceQueenAce. Writing is hard work. Being a humorous writer is nigh on impossible work.
 IceQueenAce8/31/2014 6:47:39 AM GMT
I give up...
 damosk8/31/2014 7:49:07 AM GMT
I have watched (but not contributed to) this thread over the previous days and find myself thoroughly entertained and pleased, yet also saddened at the same time. Why? Allow me to explain.

IQA has decided to take the brave step of writing a blog. She makes some interesting and discussion worthy observations. Some people like it, some people don't. Then we have a resident of the USA pop along and create a thread all about his dislike and critique (?) of the blog and it's comments.

All of this is fine, until the point where it starts to get personal. (I'm sure Amscafeaus will say he is not being personal, but he is.). What makes his comments even more disingenuous is when he starts to refer to great British writers as an example of great literature that, inter alia, interests others!

Well, for me, Amscafeaus appears extremely interested in the comments in this blog; why else would he spend so much time making comments (unless he just wanted to personally attack the views of IQA), which ironically flys totally in the face of what he would assert that he is trying to achieve.

In the modern world, people are blessed with the right of free speech; (yes, both of you) however this should be free from personal attack. What perhaps would have been more constructive would have been for Amscafeaus to do a counter blog of his opinions and values to seek to balance the observations of IQA, and not the personal attack on style, content and substance that he has.

Maybe Amscafeaus, you should start blogging for BRM!
 amscafeaus8/31/2014 11:16:21 AM GMT
Ok, now this is getting silly. She ASKED ME FOR SPECIFIC CRITICISM! It's right there in her posting. Go on....READ IT. I did her the courtesy of responding specifically. WHICH SHE ASKED ME TO DO! I was not attempting to personally impugn her in any way. This was a specific response to a request. All of which is a normal part of being literary I might add. No author goes without being critiqued. She also was the one to draw my attention to the verbal styling of some English statesmen. I chose to mention some English and Irish men to her who possessed far more eloquence than her two choices. In conclusion I have spent a grand total of 25 minutes composing my work here. An inconsequential amount of time really, but I was hoping encourage IceQueenAce to aim a little higher with her work. I am done with this posting unless someone has something of merit to continue to discuss with me. I will give you one last piece of "English" literary prose to consider here. It might be the best of the lot; "Brevity is the soul of wit." Have a great week end!
 marqis8/31/2014 12:54:02 PM GMT
I hope you really were "hoping encourage IceQueenAce to aim a little higher". To be fair, there was no personal attack. There was however a value judgement on something that is obviously significant in a personal way to someone that puts herself "out there" by writing a blog.

Is there an absolute standard that one has to meet, to write a blog? If so, what is it, and who sets it? If IQA "had aimed a little higher", you would not have commented, so you must know what that standard is, in order to be able to determine that she has not met it.

I think a blog justifies it's existence, as long as there is an audience willing to read it. I, for one, am reading IQA's blog as long as I keep enjoying it.
 IceQueenAce8/31/2014 12:58:00 PM GMT
I said I was giving up because you just don't understand what I am saying (or chosing not to).
But here goes...

I did indeed. And I want specific criticism. But you haven't given me any. You haven't said one single thing that says that something in my original blog is wrong. I believe all the 'information' is correct (infact, it is being proven correct, of the things I said about the celebrities, they themselves are now saying).
All you keep saying is 'its not funny' and using big words to repeat that fact.

How about you quote my original blog like I am doing with your posts, and tell me which bit are wrong?

Or maybe, as I suspect, you don't actually know anything about what I am discussing and it means nothing to you. I can't help that, I can't write a blog that EVERY person finds interesting, nor do I intend to. You may not find the topic of big brother interesting at all, but others way well do. And with this programme it certainly appears that people either love it or hate it. Which suggests to me it is a good topic rather than a bad one.

They are my thoughts, some people may find them interesting and read them, others may find them boring and ignore them. That is fine.
I do the same, there are certain blogs I read and certain ones I don't. Its a choice thing.

Posted by amscafeaus:All of which is a normal part of being literary I might add. No author goes without being critiqued.


I don't mind being critiqued. I welcome it. But your critique needs to have some substance. I am not seeing any.

Posted by amscafeaus:She also was the one to draw my attention to the verbal styling of some English statesmen. I chose to mention some English and Irish men to her who possessed far more eloquence than her two choices.


Maybe this was lost in translation. I wasn't being complimentary to the two politicians, I was saying that they (as it feels in your posts), say lots of things using big words without saying much at all. But then, I am not a fan of politicians at all.

Maybe I will do a blog on them in the future. But I have breast-feeding and terrorism to get through first!


Posted by amscafeaus:In conclusion I have spent a grand total of 25 minutes composing my work here. An inconsequential amount of time really, but I was hoping encourage IceQueenAce to aim a little higher with her work. I am done with this posting unless someone has something of merit to continue to discuss with me. I will give you one last piece of "English" literary prose to consider here. It might be the best of the lot; "Brevity is the soul of wit." Have a great week end!


And that is the thing. Whilst I of course want to get better and address readers better, I am not that bothered about aiming higher.

Its not 'my work'. Its not 'academic'. It is just a few thoughts jotted down on paper. You seem to want a piece of writing I can have scrutinised by a professor and that ain't ever gonna happen. It is just a bit of fun.




I thought I would quote this bit too, seeing as it does try and give something constructive...

It has no substantive matter as its subject. The matter you have chosen for your subject is petty,


You think bullying is petty?
You think constantly laughing at others is petty?
You think standing up as a hero to fat kids, whilst having as much plastic surgery as possible is petty?
That children watch this and think this is the way to act? That society gets weaker and weaker with each generation?

Posted by amscafeaus:your commentary on that subject matter is self-obsessed, derogatory, and once again uninteresting, lacking any fresh insight and completely without humor.


Blogs are by definition self-obsessed, they are the thoughts of the person writing them and I am not sure I ever said it was meant to be a funny.


Posted by amscafeaus:So, "SPECIFICALLY" my suggestions are: find some subjects that will interest and entertain your readers,


Impossible. You won't ever find ANY piece of writing that entertains everyone.
I have written two blogs.
The first one was about personal responsibility and was well receieved.
The second one about 'celebrities' and has gained a lot of responses. And people are still reading this thread, which would suggest than some people do find it interesting.

Just because YOU don't find it interesting, doesn't mean others wouldn't. Like the 3 million people who sit at home and watch it every night, or the 3 million partners of people who watch it that hate it!


Posted by amscafeaus:look for humor to add some levity and entertainment value to your words and finally seek to express yourself verbally in a tighter more succinct style.


I don't intend to try and be funny. I suck at jokes. Watch...

Why did the chicken cross the road?
To get to the idiots house.

Knock knock.
Whose there?
The chicken.

See!

For the absolute I don't for one second feel you mean to personally attack me and I don't see it as that.

I just totally disagree with your thinking and I don't feel you understand what a blog really is about. That's all.

I said I was giving up because you just don't understand what I am saying (or chosing not to).
But here goes...

Ok, now this is getting silly. She ASKED ME FOR SPECIFIC CRITICISM! It's right there in her posting. Go on....READ IT. I did her the courtesy of responding specifically. WHICH SHE ASKED ME TO DO! I was not attempting to personally impugn her in any way. This was a specific response to a request.


I did indeed. And I want specific criticism. But you haven't given me any. You haven't said one single thing that says that something in my original blog is wrong. I believe all the 'information' is correct (infact, it is being proven correct, of the things I said about the celebrities, they themselves are now saying).
All you keep saying is 'its not funny' and using big words to repeat that fact.

How about you quote my original blog like I am doing with your posts, and tell me which bit are wrong?

Or maybe, as I suspect, you don't actually know anything about what I am discussing and it means nothing to you. I can't help that, I can't write a blog that EVERY person finds interesting, nor do I intend to. You may not find the topic of big brother interesting at all, but others way well do. And with this programme it certainly appears that people either love it or hate it. Which suggests to me it is a good topic rather than a bad one.

WOW... THAT IS THE LONGEST POST I HAVE EVER SEEN, NOT READ, JUST SEEN BUT STILL I THINK THAT WOULD BE ENOUGH FOR WRITING A COMMENT THOUGH, BUT I THINK I AM TYPING MUCH TOO LONG IN CAPITAL LETTERS, I REALLY DON'T KNOW WHY BUT I JUST LOVE TO GO ON AND GO ON AND GO ON WHOLE THE TIME, WHOLE THE TIME GO ON AND GO ON AND GO ON!!!

IceQueenAce, you and I have agreed to disagree. This is not something I am overly worried about. Please by all means continue to write, blog, post. I would never try and stop someone from expressing themselves. You are correct that your readers will determine the success or failure of your postings. I will look in on your work and see how you do. I am on this site daily so it is a passing convenience for me. Perhaps in the future your work will resonate with me and rest assured that at that time I will definitely fire off a comment in support of your efforts. I wish you good luck!
 Phisix8/31/2014 6:28:51 PM GMT
^ Mate, STFU your getting annoying now trying to ruin someones blog. Experience breeds better results so let her get on with it, especially since most of us enjoyed reading what she had to say. Just don't read it if it is not up to your expectations or maybe write your own so we can judge yours? That could be interesting.

I don't think she really cares if her work resonates with you. she is doing this because it is something she likes to do, and some of us enjoy reading things IQA has to say. and her blog does NOT have to be about poker, when she got hired by BRM , it was to write about anything she feels like writing about. Keep up the good work IQA
Thumbs Up Thumbs Up

^^^Try and leave someone an encouraging message and look what happens! Too funny. Once again good luck IceQueenAce!
 yout859/1/2014 7:18:10 AM GMT
Where are my encouraging messages? I'm writing a blog too.... How about BeMyATMplz... so is he. Then there's Pokershark, Whiskey.. TNTNS (or something like that), the guy who blogs about football (sorry, forgot your name).... there are many bloggers on here... Why no encouraging messages for us? Are we all so perfect that you deem it unnecessary to comment Confused
