Forum Guidelines
  • Limit discussion of body parts and functions. Tommy is gross. Discussing his grossness in detail is unnecessary and disturbing.
  • Make new threads for each update. Each YouNow broadcast, each YouTube video, everything. Embed videos directly if possible.
  • No trolling plans. We are not an autistic Illuminati. If you embarrass yourself or the forum trying to troll, we will ridicule you.
  • Write descriptive topic titles. Make new threads for significant events and use the appropriate thread prefix if needed. Be concise in describing the thread.

@yawning sneasel is the premiere of this board and all issues should go to him.

  1. Every year, Tom tries to put on a Gem Show, way outside of his means, leading to hilarious future events such as coming up short on money for weed, utilities, rent or getting his product and musical instruments stolen by transients.

    This year, Real Things Artisans Co-Op is going to be showing its wares with the El Paso Rock Shop, another no name vendor without a website and zero attention on Facebook, at a skeezy freeway Howard Johnson's, located at 1010 S. Freeway, Tucson, AZ 85745, (520) 622-5871 from January 15th through February 15th 2019.

    These two "rock vendors" are complete jokes. Case in point, here are some pics from the 2018 Rapa River show that nearly bankrupted the already bankrupt hobo.

    (Many Thanks to Kiwi User @TheJabroni)

    The reason for this post is absolutely not to troll anyone. Tom is a self-proclaimed famous public figure and as such, has no right to privacy in a business setting. This is simply an opportunity for many of you to see this zoological oddity in action. If any Kiwi would like to see these hilarious Relics of Fail in person, please feel free to visit Tom in his fatural habitat and, if you would be so kind, as to provide any sort of pictures or video of the event. If so, we expect you to be on your best behavior.

  3. Tom's wire wrapping is incredibly poor. His wraps are super loose with way too many loops and low quality wire. They look like half-assed fishing lures made with cheap beads and wire salvaged from stranded electric wire. The ends of the wires tend to not be hidden and the excessively loose wraps make him hide the stones more than showcase them.

    Tom would probably benefit from proper tools and a class or two on wrapping technique. Hell, he could probably improve dramatically just by watching youtuYo videos. His mental illness prevents him from improving though as he has delusions of grandeur that make him believe that he is far more skilled than he actually is.

  5. I just noticed the free gift part. What could Tommy possibly be giving away as a gift that anyone would want.

  8. Tom swore he was 'getting paid' this time around but I'd bet it'll be in weed because earning an income is against his morals.

  9. Lol I am glad my agents in the field have given me some info onto the whereabouts for the 2019 edition of "To Catch a Hobo"

    He will definitely be more on edge this time around my fellow kiwis, so careful since he has been known to kill a man with one punch (self-proclaimed)

  10. The Tucson gem show is notorious for hippies. The show takes up the whole downtown area, and just about every vacant field in 10 miles has been taken over by potheads and gypsy wannabees, who set up camp and get high for the 3 weeks of the show.
    My guess is that's what he'll be up to.

  12. Apparently it's a real shithole. The whole Howard Johnson's name has seen better days, with all the restaurants ceasing to exist, and the hotels being disgusting roach motels. Look up the reviews on this one, they uniformly say it's a complete dump.

    The perfect place for our favorite dog-molesting pedohobo.

  14. I've been there, it's not so bad, and people who get a room there don't usually actually stay there during the gem show. It's one of about 60 locations in Tucson that run smaller gem shows around the main event in the downtown area.

    Most of the hotels in the area sell out for the gem show. What ends up happening is that the rooms are used as stalls for the show itself. People will open their hotel room up, put a table out front, and run it like a store.

    Actual picture of the hotel from last year.

    Some hotels encourage this, and Howard Johnson's is one of them. The entire bottom floor of the hotel will turn into a shopping mall for 2-3 weeks.

    This is the largest gem and mineral show on the planet, and over half a billion dollars can change hands each year. People come from all over the world to buy inexpensive gems from private miners, high-end gems from dealers, or specimens for collections.
    An independent gem miner, or savvy salesperson can come away with enough profit to not work the rest of the year. Even a person who just likes to go out and pick up neat rocks can rent a booth in a parking lot, and make hundreds of dollars selling rocks that normal people might ignore entirely.

    My guess is he'll probably sell a couple of cracked quartz crystals and blow all his earnings on weed.

  16. It's telling that this is such a big event and Tommy still can't manage to make enough to cover his table rent.

  17. It'll be like other times he cadged money from other people for it, then spent most of it on weed that he then wandered off and smoked instead of sitting at his table, and he won't make enough selling his shitrocks to pay anyone back and will shaft them.

  18. I'm no gem expert, but all those Quartz in his post look naff.

    I'd be surprised if he could get a profit to blow on Weed.

  19. These situations have already occurred and will continue. Tom is absolute shit at math. Not only does he not keep records of his sales but he often trades for other stones. He considers that to be profit, when in reality it's more product that he can't sell. The stuff he does manage to sell goes directly to his weed habit.

    Tom will say last year he made "at least $2,000 dollars" but mysteriously, he could not pay back Arianna the $600 he owed to her or cover his utilities. He does not understand that if you can't hold on to the profit, it doesn't matter how much you sell, especially if you have fuckall to show for it.

    I expect him to bomb the fuck out at this show; either by chimping on his co-workers or failing to turn a profit. And of course, it will be all our fault.
