"EVERYTHING" You Need To Know #pezoutlaw #hollywood @pezoutlaw

Life is the journey from Birth to Death.

How you get there is what's important.

We all pull a little red wagon filled with all the stupid or awful things we've done on our journey to eventual, Death.
Try as best you can not to get your wagon so full that you can no longer pull it.

Short version. You are going to Die.
Try to remember, are the actions I'm about to take, one's I want to remember as I'm Dying.
If I only live once, is this how I want to spend that time.

This is a big one.
What you do not say to people in life is way more important than what you do say.
If what you are going to tell me will hurt me. Don't, Lie to me.
"Honesty" can be selfish, if you need to unburden your soul, tell your Rabi.

Most important.
Be nice to your Dog.

Ever notice, You never hear your dog brag about how well trained you are.

After Pez Outlaw, I intend to retire.

Commie Pinko #pezoutlaw #hollywood @pezoutlaw

It seems an explanation is in order. 
Kathy says nobody understands my intent.
This post is meant in humor, it's meant as a display of lunacy. 

Forgive me, I think it's ridiculously funny.
And I'm still getting stares, OK Dark humor then.
This was my childhood.

We actually did the "Duck n Cover Drills".
People actually had fallout shelters when I was a child.
This is not a political statement.

I don't do politics, There Big Boys n Girls, they can handle there own shit.
If they can't, then they have no business being there.
I'm not going to lose family or friends fighting for them.

Stop The Presses though for a good Commie Pinko Red Scare.
My childhood demands I stop my life, my dreams n my goals n get on board.
Plus it's FUN.

I have always loved the slur, Commie Pinko. Nothing is more fun than calling a friend a Commie Pinko for some very small disagreement or indiscretion.
It just cracks me up. 

Had it not been for Americas favorite Knucklehead Wildman Joe McCarthy we would not have this affectionate moniker for a dear friend who has strayed.

That's it. Short n sweet.
Purity in brevity. 

Oh yeah, sorry almost forgot.
I want to apologize to any Commie Pinko's my remarks might have offended.
Commie Pinko's are kinda touchy bout that name. OOPs did it again. Sorry, sorry.

Where's Waldo?

My childhood, Readers Digest version.

Not Pissing People Off? You're Doing It Wrong. #pezoutlaw #hollywood #NFTA

I seem to have a talent for pissing people off.
I think pissing people off is my superpower.

I could not possibly count the number of of people I have pissed off getting Pez Outlaw this far.

People I did business with that were screwing me that are now pissed that I'm talking.

Old Scott McWhinnie Pez Corporation because I exploited there weakness.

New Pez Corporation because I won't stop telling the story.

I've also pissed off about half of the Pez collecting community with my story and methods of promoting it. 

I'm relentless on facebook n twitter.
I state my case for Pez outlaw in very bold terms.
Neither is gonna gain me favor with people in general.

People want a humble Hero.
Problem is, I started from scratch building n writing the Pez Outlaw story.
Nobody was going to tell the Pez Outlaw story or promote it if I didn't. 
Now people are interested but that took 15 years of work.
So why do I keep promoting now?
I will stop running only after we actually cross the finish line.
After 15 years I do not know any other way.

I love that phase "bend the cost curve".
Somehow I think some iteration of that nonsense could be applied to how n why those that try to control me get so frustrated.

Every since I was a child people have thought that they could handle or control me.
Often by exerting pressure over me.
It never works.

What my fr-enemies have never understood is.
Everybody is not everybody else.
The fact that some of us are just to stupid to realize we can not beat you and it becomes a war of attrition n who will fight the longest. 
The war in Afghanistan is the longest war in American history, 14 years.
I've been fighting Pez Corporation for 15 to 17 years.

Once you take everything from someone they have only 2 options, curl up n die or fight with no holds barred. 
It's like knowing you are inches from dead so why not everything you can to fight your way back.

Someone who has Parkinson's told me "I'm trying to outrun it", after I said how hard they worked day in day out.

In essence. When you have nothing to lose, you are liberated because you have nothing to lose.
That's the problem when you take almost everything someone has. What they have left is outrage n anger.

When the name Pez Outlaw is "famous" I want you all to know I/he would not be here without Kathryn Ann's love that kept me alive.
Above everything else, she is what matters to me.
The rest of the world, EHHH! Kathryn Ann, YES MAM. 
I try my hardest never to Piss her off. not good. not good.

Enigma Protocol - Robotism #pezoutlaw #hollywood

Lately I've had the inescapable feeling that I've stuck my head through the looking glass n find it difficult to return.
The illusion clouds reality.
In short I'm at a crossroads putting faith in my subconscious for true north.

I put my hope in the collective illusion, loosing myself in the methods n beliefs of popular culture.
Unfortunately the veil is lifting exposing the shallowness.
Each day it becomes harder to deny. 

There is what I wanted to be true n there's what's actually true.
No more denial, I accept reality.
Rocks Float #pezoutlaw #hollywood @pezoutlaw #NFTA..

Robotism - a pathological dislike of robots.
compulsive, obsessive, inveterate, habitual, persistent, chronic, hardened, confirmed hatred  of robots.

After much soul searching I've decided that I just don't want to put the time, trouble or emotional effort into hating anyone.
Politics left or right, Trump, Nancy Pelosi, global warming etc.
There is not one thing I could, can or want to do concerning any of it.
To think my vocal support or disapproval makes the slightest bit of difference is delusional.

The problem is that we humans like a cause or to get worked up believing in or against something.
To that point I've decided to put all my need for a cause or hate of something into a fierce hatred of Robots.
Quite honestly Robots are as we all know destroying everything we as humans hold dear.
Soulless Robots are at the root of every problem we face today.

I have the deepest of hate for Robots n everything that goes wrong in my life, I lay blame at the feet of Robots.
We must stand together in defiance of the Robot plan to dominate humanity or be made obsolete one by one.
Damned accursed Robots, I spit upon your graves.

Likes - Bull Mastiffs n Dachshunds.

That's all I've got so far - work in progress.

When I was younger I searched for old guys with piles of weird leftover old stuff.
I'm now that old guy I used to seek.

Got a big pile of dirt from my kids on my 66th Birthday.

Just saw something.
Keep it vague.
I may not be your cup of tea, but at list it's not "Pee Pee, Poo Poo".

My B Movie Life, The Elevator Pitch #pezoutlaw #hollywood

exclamation: eh
  1. used to represent a sound made in speech in a variety of situations, in particular to ask for something to be repeated or explained or to elicit agreement.

    "“Eh? What's this?”"
from google

From Pez Outlaw- eh meaning who cares.

I just don't give a damn about much of anything anymore.
The clock is ticking louder n louder with each passing day.
All this BS we fight about means nothing when time runs out.
I just don't understand why more people don't realize it.

At the end we are left with reflection of a life lived.
Were my efforts worth the life I was given?
I've led a bizarre life, was that the intention?
Honestly, people make no sense to me at all.

If life is just an illusion why don't we write it better?
I wrote my own code for a decade.
I just wish I could remember how I did it.

Old Sparkie goes out eventually.
Then What?
Am I just a madman screaming in the wilderness?

I woke up this morning sick of hearing myself talk.
The troubling thing was I hadn't said anything yet.
The problem is, if I stop talking I'd have to face my fears.
Let's not do that, OK.


amusements while we wait.

1st Amazon now Apple spending 1 Billion ea on content, Just Saying.

Are movies made for airing on Amazon, Netflix n Apple actually B Movies of yesteryear?
Was the Pez Outlaw story always a really good B movie?
Questions I couldn't possibly have an answer to.

Would a Pez Outlaw movie on 1 of the subscription base download platforms be good enough?
Also above my pay grade.

Would I think less of my life if all of the above were true? NO!
A lot of really great people made good livings making n appearing in good B movies.
Roy Rogers, Gene Autry n Gabby Hayes just to name a few.
I don't think that there lives or the value of there work was diminished in the slightest because the movies they made were not A's.

Pez Outlaw is the story of a blue collar guy taking a shot at the American Dream, so why not show it in the blue collar medium of a B Movie.
Your potential market is every person who buys a lottery ticket in hopes of getting there shot at happiness.
Truth is, if B movies were good enough for The Marx Brothers n the 3 Stooges then there good enough for Pez Outlaw.
I would be honored if my adventures as Pez Outlaw were depicted in a good B movie.

Pause While you read a whole buncha more words here that make a very convincing argument.
Proof beyond doubt.....................
As you can see from these statistics........................
Also a recent poll said.......................
Ok I win n it's done, what a relief.

I just want the Pez Outlaw story told n I'm not fussy how or where.
N yes I still want the book w/Jeff Maysh.

As the people who played a role in your life begin to die, your life slowly starts to disappear.
Goodbye Tom, Thanks for Sgt Pepper n so much more.
Most of all Tom, thank you for bringing Kathy n me together, over 45yrs later n she saves my life still every day.
Your life had meaning Tom for those you touched with it. 

I wake every morning now hearing Willie Nelson singing
“I woke up still not dead again today…”

Pez Outlaw Urban Legend

Has the life of Pez Outlaw reached the point where his adventures are now being retold as urban legend?

One of the biggest mistakes I made in the 90s was selling before all possible product had been acquired.
recent ebay listing used the following linkage to pez outlaw to try n sell product.

From the Estate of an avid collector-
(Please research "PEZ Outlaw" for more information)
A few years ago one of the World's top PEZ Entrepreneurs 
lived in & operated out of the American State of Michigan! This may increase the likelihood that rare or unknown pieces may be in Michigan.

That was the beginning of the pitch someone was using to sell Pez on ebay.
I guess I can think of a few people here in Michigan.
One in particular, we'll call this person "M".
M purchased $22,000.00 worth of Pez wholesale n that was just one of many purchases by M.
I'm not sure what M did with the pez, there's a strong likelihood M still has them. 
M only bought older pez, no Misfits.

I will not disclose M's name.
If you are from that time you probably know it.
It's up to M to choose there time.

This is not the first time that the character Pez Outlaw was used as a selling point. 

A very popular character, Pez Outlaw's adventures are reaching mythical status within the collecting community and others?

I especially like the following sentence, " the World's top PEZ Entrepreneur 
lived in & operated out of the American State of Michigan!"

Is Pez Outlaw Becoming Urban Legend?

see C1. Crazy Is Easy If You Are Motivated, #pezoutlaw... for the rest of this story 
scene 2
She Whispered, "Kolinska" With that one word, Kolinska, a decade long Fairy-tale that changed my life began.

Segue to a crowded Pez/toy show floor where a woman whispers Kolinka in my ear to Josh n I on the little plane to Ljubliana about to die. see C3.She Whispered, "Kolinska" #pezoutlaw #hollywood... for the rest of this story

scene 3

1994 Flight to Ljubljana. After waiting all night on benches in a small corner of the Vienna airport finally it was time to board. We walk out onto the airstrip & are directed to board Sky Kings plane. 
“Sky King” starred Kirby Grant as Schuyler “Sky” King and Gloria Winters as his niece, Penny.

Pilot copilot & 4 seats for passengers. One of the seats occupied by the overweight male stewardess handing out sandwiches from Rubbermaid containers. This did not look good. The flight turned out to be quite similar to a ride on a scary roller coaster with the male stewardess in your lap more than his own seat. Something to do with flying over the Alps in winter in a small plane, wind currents, downdrafts & low altitudes. We drove clown cars down through the mountains after that. The single most beautiful drive you will ever take is a winter drive from Vienna to Ljubljana through the mountains. The air is crisp & clean. The scenery unmatched anywhere in all my travels. Whenever I think of the most beautiful sights I have ever seen it is that drive in winter. Though driving clown cars through serious mountains can be a harrowing experience.

see C3.She Whispered, "Kolinska" #pezoutlaw #hollywood... for the rest of this story

Wardrobe. Me in my Trench Coat n Midnight Blue Velour Track Suit, clutching a paper towel in my left hand for security, true story. On the flight from the US to Europe I would not let the Flight Attendants take my coat as I did not trust anybody. 

 Sitting in my seat on that flight to Slovenia, I began wondering how I ended up here, sure I was about to die. The whispered word "Kolinska" that led me to that moment in time. From 1970 to 1990 I had been an accumulator of things old, from 1990 to 1994 I started doing antique n toy shows as a seller. During 1993 I started selling Pez from Canada, which led to the decade that changed my life's direction forever. All the previous was reflection while sitting on this plane ride from Hell, from here the adventure begins.

The story unfolds. 
 Reality TV pales in comparison to the life I lived for 11 years.  Hungary - 700,000 Pez Smuggled. Pez Outlaw 

Pez Outlaw Dispenser

 Spies, Black market deals, smuggling and Bribery.
10 years, Nobody could catch me.
I ran circles around the corporate cool kids and made them look like incompetents.

Final shot.
As the credits roll show a backshot of Pez Outlaw today sitting on set in the dark watching his life being made into a Hollywood Movie.
To me this is the money shot, telling the audience that after all that they just watched HE WON.
Life is hard n people need the encouragement of seeing that if you stick with it n believe in yourself, you actually can succeed. 

Box Office receipts weren't so great this past summer, What You Got To Lose by telling a middle class story of hope n dreams rewarded?

I Write, But I'm Not A Writer
Every day n I mean every day, I come into the office n work/write for about 4hrs.
You wouldn't think that this is a touchy issue for others or myself for that matter, but it is.
To consider or state that you are a writer before you've crossed a certain threshold is looked down upon.
I didn't write this rule but I am judged by it.

Think about it for a minute the number of us who write out here in obscurity day after day.
I enjoy what I do n it definitely helps me maintain my sanity, but I dare not say I'm a writer.

I suppose if someone bought at any price something I've written n published it, then possibly I could get away with momentarily calling myself a writer.
Until that transformational day I write. 

My problem or is it a blessing, is that I write in many voices, maybe to many.
I don't read anything anyone else writes so I don't accidentally use the thought.
I write from within myself not someone elses story.
My writing is sometimes a purge of my mind, to cleanse it so I can move on.

Oh yeah n I make up words n use the shortcut n.
I don't try to conform to anyone elses style.
I have no idea what the rules are n don't seek them out.
I figure if what I write has merit, it will find an audience.

I will admit that I'd find it thrilling if someone wanted to publish anything I've ever written.
Until that day I write n if you're reading it, Thank You.

With Luck, After Pez Outlaw, I can retire. 

Movie Life-rights only

4My BFF Scott McWhinnie, The Pez Color War #pezoutlaw #hollywood

"Best Friends Forever"!

From google
noun informal
noun: BFF; plural noun: BFFs. a girl's best friend.
made me  laugh

Scott McWhinnie the ex-president of Pez USA may have won the Pez Color War, but our history will be linked forever n I know that torments him.  
To the contrary this gives me comfort.  
Scott McWhinnie may have gotten a better retirement package than me but I'll be a part of his life till the day he dies.
I may have gotten a life sentence of poverty but Scott McWhinnie will never shake our history.
Recently a friend was shocked that I'm on twitter, I have to in order to stay in touch with my BFF Scott McWhinnie. 

Let's look at this from another angle.
Were it not for Pez Outlaw n The Pez Color War, would Scott McWhinnies rein at Pez USA be remembered at all?
Scott McWhinnies record would read X-amount of sales, X-amount of Pez USA growth n success then totally forgotten n forgettable.
But Scott McWhinnie vs Pez Outlaw in the Pez Color War, That will be remembered.
We each played our roles in a story worth retelling, not a boring balance sheet followed by a Gold Watch.
You're Welcome Scott.

The offer is off the Table.
The Pez Color War. 
This phrase represents a 3 to 5 year period (approx end of 1998 to early 2003) where my life as  Pez Outlaw became an open conflict with Pez USA. 

Yes I took on an International Corporation, I still am.

Scott McWhinnie was the guy who ran Pez USA at that time. For years I had been a thorn in Pez USAs back side, just out of reach for them to remove. It was not until I contracted with Pez Austria/Haas for just under 20 exclusive special Pez color variations and approx 8 different Crystal Pez. That Pez USA finally saw there opening. The Pez Color War began when I first received these dispensers and started selling them. Followed by Pez USA reproducing most of them for sale on the NEW Pez USA website. The Pez Color Wars refers to the clash of that product in the collector arena. It was the Holiday Colors, my product vs The Misfits, Scotts product. Approximately 200,000 Pez Dispensers were involved in this conflict on my side alone.

Scott McWhinnie "retired" very very soon after the Pez Color War ended. I mean real soon after.   I've always believed he got squeezed out after the Pez Color War ended. He ordered then had to liquidate a very large amount of Pez (the Misfits). I also hear that Scott McWhinnie has not spoken to anyone in 10 years. Whoa! That's worse than me.

When I bought the Holiday Colors it was my attempt to move on from all the smuggling & intrigue that had built my company. I wanted to put all that behind me n start new with legit product bought from Pez International. Unfortunately Scott McWhinnie was not of a same mind, rather than begin anew by leaving the past behind, he wanted revenge.

By ordering such a large group of Pez dispensers from Pez Austria at a very high price per dispenser. I handed Scott McWhinnie President of Pez USA the opening for the revenge he desperately desired. Like they say, when you seek revenge dig two holes first, because truth be told when all was said & done, we were both dead.

The Holiday Colors project tied up all the cash I had, plus all I could borrow. All Scott McWhinnie at Pez USA had to do was, get samples of my product. Then send them to Pez Austria Haas and place the order to seal my destruction.

By the time the Pez Color War ended, I was broke.  I was allowed to rise as long as it suited various individuals at Pez Corporation. Then destroyed because of envy n greed. My actions wrote the script for Scott McWhinnies revenge.

for more, see Chapter 1. "The Legend Of Pez Outlaw." #pezoutlaw ...

The Charges
Under Scott McWhinnie's Pez Corporation, the following was done.
Pez Corporation Committed a $250,000.00 Fraud through Breach of implied Contract.
Pez Corporation used a clients ideas to destroy that clients business.
Pez Corporation used there own product to destroy a client.
Pez Corporation sold then devalued there own product to destroy a client.
Pez Corporation initiated a smear campaign against there own product once a client bought that product.
Pez Corporation manipulated the price n value of there own product to destroy a client.
Pez Corporation destroyed a client then used that clients ideas for 2 decades of profit.

To explain the dollar amount confusion.
$250,000.00 was required to buy old stock n qualify for deal to make Holiday Colors/misfits.
$250,000.00 was the cost of the special order Holiday colors/misfits.
So 1/2 million total but the Breach of Contract was only on the portion that was known as Holiday Colors/misfits, meaning $250,000.00 was the loss.
If you factor in roll over n momentum which was at 4.5 million by that time, the loss was in the MILLIONS.

I'll lay it out in brief.

24 years ago at the age of 44 I began the decade that in a lot of ways will define my life.
It took me 25 years to get to the point in 1994 that I was ready to make my move.
Finally I had scraped together a few thousand dollars to begin my journey.
The next decade flew by at light speed, as I traveled the world buying Pez.
I had finally caught the wave.

Everything was built on the momentum of the previous success.
Flea markets, Good Will stores, Collectibles of every description, McDonalds premiums, cereal premiums and finally Pez.
Every success rolled into the next, all building to the decisions of 1998.

In 1998 I remortgaged my home ($125,000.00) and took out an additional line of credit loan for $125,000.00.
I put that borrowed $250,000.00 plus another $250,000.00 of earnings in 1998 on the biggest play I had ever made.
I made my play, a half million dollars pushed into the middle of the table.

In late 1998 I lost.
Everything I had worked a lifetime for ended.

Pez Corporation duplicated everything I created in that special order.

I have real problems with the choices made by Pez Corporation. First Pez Austria agrees to a special order of unique dispensers by me that I paid just under 1/2 million dollars to my broker for in 1998. Then Pez Austria goes back on the agreement by agreeing to duplicate that order. Knowing that the duplicated product will be used to destroy the value of the original pez dispensers they sold me. 

The biggest outrage is, The President of PEZ USA conceived and ruthlessly carried out his plan to reproduced my product with the sole intent of destroying my company. 

Intent is everything. Add to that Malice of Forethought. Pez USA planned this meticulously. 

It would not matter if I were the worst person on planet Earth, that fact would not excuse Pez Corporations actions or there intent by those actions.

Pez USA President Scott McWhinnie's first response to the Holiday Colors/Misfits was to start a rumor that these dispensers were not legitimate dispensers. Pez USA did this through PCN the Pez Collectors News letter. The second thing Pez USA did was to have a collector buy samples of the Holiday colors, so they could be sent to Pez Austria to be copied. Which when you think about it is kinda odd because Pez Austria authorized and made the original dispensers. My guess as to why samples were required is as follows. Pez Austria really disliked Scott McWhinnie so nobody in Europe was going to make anything easy for him. It is also possible that so little regard was given to the choices I made for the Holiday Colors, that no records were kept. My guess is both reasons were factors in why samples were required.

The copies were named the Misfits by Scott McWhinnie, he did all of this in his capacity as President of Pez USA. By the end of Pez USAs smear campaign through PCN, the Pez Corp copies were this shiny good thing and my originals were dubious at best. The name Holiday colors was jettisoned with remarkable speed and replaced with the name of the copies, MISFITS.  The Misfits were the copies. The individual names were; Diablo, Detys, VooDoo Mama, David W, Pinky, Mex-Tex, Jaundice Witch, Bear C, Bear D, Pal S, Pal J and Pal M etc.

Once Pez USA received the Misfits the retail was set at the price I paid wholesale to my broker Andre Zeich. Andre is the person who placed the order through Van Melles of Germany for the Holiday colors from Pez Austria Haas for me and handled all of the shipping arraignments.

I have to admit to you that I do hate Pez Corporation for what they stole from my family. Though to carry that hate every day would destroy me. I believe n hope that my hate of Pez Corporation is a passive emotion.  To be honest I rarely think of it anymore, but down deep it remains.

Every so often I'm required to remind myself why I'm doing all of this.
Scot McWhinnie, "Best Friends Forever"!

After Pez Outlaw, I intend to retire.

Waiting on Reality #pezoutlaw #hollywood @pezoutlaw

I believe in the Absurdity of life. Therefore I believe whatever I imagine is possible.
I work every day for that possible.

I believe in it n I can actually see it.

What I believed impossible for my life when I was a child has already been surpassed.
Now if I can only bring stability to my dreams.

I can see my dreams as if they were already reality.
I've run the scenarios.
Now I wait for reality to catch up.

Is it egotistical to think a lot of what others pass off as crazy is amateurish?
By the way.
My favorite crazy in a movie. Brad Pitt, 12 Monkeys.
Favorite crazy on TV Jenifer on 12 Monkeys.
Favorite Obsessive Compulsive. Tony Shalhoub, Monk.

After Pez Outlaw, I intend to retire.
