Asian T.V. = Some Bizzare Sh*t

This is the random weird shenanigans I see all day on Asian T.V. shows & commercial's just like this. Talk about entertaining marketing lol! (btw this isn't even the wackiest or weirdest)

One of my favorite things to do while traveling is to just lay on a hotel bed & guess what they are saying while making up your own scripts...

Its times like this when I ask myself, "WTF am I doing here?"

Click.

Just turned it off...

Now to head out side and witness some REALLY weird drama.

Time to create my own Reality TV :-)

Cheers,

Quinton

Meet The "Unstopabble Family"

Brian & Rhonda Swan are an amazing couple & a couple of my best friends in the world.
Here is a picture of the 3 of us (and my previous European girlfriend) aswell as another amazing rockstar couple the Hamburgers at an amazing beach resort outside Rome Italy called Positano after a conference we all attended back in 2008. This was probably like the 8th or nineth trip / location that I met up with them at during a 3 year time period when we all used to be biz partners together...
Ahhh, the good ol' days...

They have now been traveling the world with their daughter for the last 2+ years.
Here is their latest video from Puerto Ricco.
This pic was in March 2007 at the Moon Palace Resort in Cancun. Only bar I have ever been to were I could sit on a swing. Loved it!

This is the first conversation and time Swano & I met at a hotel bar in drinking Corona's in Cancun Mexico talking about surfing & sharing traveling stories, been great friends ever since.
Thanks Brian & Rhonda for being an awesome example of "Living The Dream' and being such a great & inspiring friends to me :D

Swan's, see you both along our world wide journeys...

Now, since the Swan's & countless others are living their 'pinch me life' and I am having a BLAST rocking out in Asia, I think its time for you to go live YOUR Dreams...

Why not?

Right... ?

Think about it...

Live from Asia, Living The Dream,

Quinton :D

"WINNING"


I think this is absolutely hilarious and the best and biggest celebrity media / publicity stunt EVER.

Charlie Sheen Quote Compilation "I'm a freaking rock star from Mars. I got magic on my fingertips. Winning, every second. I got Tiger Blood man. Practice. Drug tests don't lie. Cocaine. Banging rocks, that's how I roll! 3 mil/episode, I'm underpaid. We just win. I'm not bi polar, I am Bi-winning. Can't process it, losers. shut up. I' m an F18 BRO. WINNING! Duh.

I have to admit, it is SOOOO refreshing to have someone have the BALLS to be real, authentic and be totally transparent instead of just being a walking & talking zombie like the majority of the population.

Personally I am so SICK of the proper 'canned & conservative conversations' that pollutes the media, especially on Facebook & Twitter updates...come on now, get a life people, do I really care your eating a sandwich right now?!

Most people sound like freaking robots reading (or typing) a script and hiding what they really want to say or feel because its not socially "acceptable content".

Screw That!

Recently I have made a conscious effort to say exactly whats on my mind and what I am doing / feeling through my blog & social media channels, and guess what?

People seem to absolutely LOVE IT! (and to be honest, its such a relief to be able to just be REAL and candid without worrying about any 'proper' social conduct that is so lame, boring and utterly pointless.

Since I have starting expressing and sharing this new communication initiative, I can not tell you how many people have private messaged me on Facebook saying things like; "Quinton, I have just been LOVING your status updates, they're really inspiring and fun to follow & cool to hear how your living your life, keep it up"

Seriously, people I don't even know message me saying "hey bro, you sound like a cool guy having a blast, hope we can connect & meet up sometime. Keep rockin' out"

Why am I saying this now?

No, not to brag, but to give YOU as an individual an open invitation to break the barriers of the social / political norms and express your REAL authentic self the way your WANT not how you think you should.

Start a blog, post interesting controversial status updates. Do whatever the F you want, just don't be a robot like the masses.

One of the best (and highest paid) copy writers I know says that the masses are
BORED OUT OF THEIR MINDS looking for someone to make them feel alive.

Look at marketing rockstars like Frank Kern who talks about smoking weed, being a surf bum and a boozer to his readers...and now the guy is the biggest "Guru" of online biz development on the planet and people buy his stuff cause they like and can relate to him...

Also, my first real business mentor used to start every coaching call (that was packed with 1000's of people on the line) with the disclaimer stating 'if I say something that offends you...don't worry, you will get over it".

Personally, I have always gravitated to the so called "rebel rock star' persona's.
I loved the college basketball team the Fab 5 from Michigan Wolverines who trash talked and started the baggy shorts and bald head look. I idolized Dennis Rodman for his talent on and off the court antics, I've always loved rockstar's that promote the alternative rock n roll lifestyles that movie star's rock out like the James Bond's, Kurt Cobain, Jim Morrison, Jimmy Hendrix, Hank Moody's & Vincent Chases' of the world, and guess what?

So does everyone else...

Its no coincidence that Charlie Sheen got over 1 million new Twitter Followers in just 24h after one unusual interview.

Why?

Its because people are HUNGRY for someone to make them feel SOMETHING...ANYTHING, other than the same old same old boring re packaged B.S. from some lame ass news broadcaster...

If you think Charlie Sheen is not a genius who is consciously and creatively building his brand then you are very mistaken my friend...

Trust me, he knows EXACTLY what he is doing and he is making a FORTUNE from it ;-)

Original Mix
Remix

20/20 Interview

His shenanigans inspired me to change my voice message to

"Hello, this is Quinton's cell phone, sorry I can't answer your call, but I am out "WINNING" leave a message and I will call you back asap."

Enjoy your new found freedom of speech and remember, if I say something that offends you...you'll get over it ;)

So with that out of the way, I'm off to drink some Tiger Blood & party like a rock star from Mars...

P.S. oh ya, I actually just ordered his shirt with 'WINNING' on it, and yes, he makes $ from that product sale...see what I mean? Genius marketing / branding...

I can't wait to get it in the mail lol!

All My Best,

Mr. Quinton 'Charlie' Carlin ;-)

Live From Asia 8.9 Earthquake & Massive Tsunami



Walking down the street today in the middle of Asia, Seoul Korea it seemed like something bizarre was happening, the only problem was I had no idea b/c everything & everyone here talks is in a language I do not understand including the TV & news papers.

It was not until I got back to my place and logged onto my one stop shop media source, 'FACEBOOK' were I learned what all the commotion was about here...there was the biggest earthquake in the history or Asia just a few hundred miles from me in Tokyo Japan killing countless civilians and destroying cities and a country from a 8.9 earthquake and an massive tsunami.

Live CNN Footage

Japan was next on my travel list...not anymore. There was also a earthquake in China yesterday. When I came to live in Asia 1 month ago, being surrounded by devastating natural disasters was not on my list of wild things to experience during my Asian Adventure, but here it is. Unreal.

My Live Report From Asia & Yes, I am alive & ok, thank you all for your messages and emails.


All you can do is pray & prepare when this happens...


It hit us first in Asia, its now heading west to North America.

Pray & Prepare.

"Soul Searching" On Top Of The World (Seoul NasamTower)


Classic Asian Picture, peace sign one hand, beer in the other...

Took a tour to top of Seoul to do some 'Soul Searching' ;)
The best view is the next video when it is after dark with the city lights of this 24 MILLION person city...

Almost 8000KM from home...

City Lights @ Night...never ending neon solar system

A great night out on top of the world.

Sunset Skyline over a 24 Million Person City! Unreal Perspective on how many people actually live on this planet & how small people & our problems really are...

Best Bathroom View EVER! This is peeing in style :D LOL!

Adios from the top of Asia...

Vegas has NOTHING on Korean Nightlife. Period.

This is officially the end of my 1st month living / traveling in Asia, (which totally FLEW by!) I guess time flies when your having a TON of FUN!
To celebrate, a couple friends and I went on a weird and wild 3 day triple header bender to discover the biggest & best parties in Seou's party capital 'Hongdea'.

The earliest we got home was 6:30am, the latest was around noon...it was intense.
Party was still PACKED & BUMPIN' at 6am! If you watch this video until the end, you will see a funny / awkward conversation when I was surrounded by 3 little Asian girls after the DJ set :-)


I've been to Vegas numerous times, and have partied hard in 25 other countries all around the world, but NONE OF THEM come close to Korean Nightlife. Period.
See for yourself: Recap & Recovery.

Still Partying Like a Rockstar @ 7am ;-) I spend the next day soaking in a Korean Sauna / Spa surrounded by a ton of naked Korean old men...it was a wierd way to wrap up a wierd weekend...

Recap & Recovery after 3 nights back to back to back. Intense...

The worst part about staying out till sunrise is when your on the subway heading back come, your sitting beside people heading to work. Akward!

Meanwhile you have been up for over 24 h and probably been drinking for at least 12h. Its not a pretty sight. A friend of mine has a hilarious picture of my sprawled out sleeping on the subway, if I can find it I will post it soon.

At least I am not as bad as Charlie Sheen aka "Bi-Winning" Hilarious video

Let the good times roll...
