Catch-22. Did you read it? I didn’t, and I sometimes wonder if I should; by all accounts, it sounds like a terrific book. How do I know about it, then? Easy –
No joke, by the way. I can honestly say Mad Magazine is certainly one of the biggest influences I had when I was a kid, next to Jules Verne and Edgar Allan Poe. I’m sure you can by now understand plenty of my posts. Sorry, Jules. Sorry, Eddie. Thank you, Bill.
Wait, this post is supposed to be about Casey. What happened with his bankruptcy? What’s up with 4932 Dewey Drive? So many questions, so little time.
Ahem. Where was I? Oh yeah.
Welcome, all you beautiful people. I’ve certainly missed you; and I know the feeling is not mutual – for that, I’m grateful. After all, I’d like to believe my readers are intelligent, sharp-witted and intelligent (bazzinga!). And so, I’m sure you’ve (unlike me, of course) all read Catch-22. If you haven’t, here’s a quick primer -courtesy of that loveable know-it-all, Wikipedia.
…Among other things, Catch-22 is a general critique of bureaucratic operation and reasoning. Resulting from its specific use in the book, the phrase “Catch-22” is common idiomatic usage meaning “a no-win situation” or “a double bind” of any type. Within the book, “Catch-22” is a military rule, the self-contradictory circular logic that, for example, prevents anyone from avoiding combat missions. In Heller’s own words:
There was only one catch and that was Catch-22, which specified that a concern for one’s safety in the face of dangers that were real and immediate was the process of a rational mind. Orr was crazy and could be grounded. All he had to do was ask; and as soon as he did, he would no longer be crazy and would have to fly more missions. Orr would be crazy to fly more missions and sane if he didn’t, but if he were sane he had to fly them. If he flew them he was crazy and didn’t have to; but if he didn’t want to he was sane and had to. Yossarian was moved very deeply by the absolute simplicity of this clause of Catch-22 and let out a respectful whistle.
I won’t spoil the novel for you (how could I? I haven’t read it!), but I believe we are living a Casey-Catch-22 situation here – a no-win situation,
a double bind (just the thought of anything getting into a double bind situation with Casey makes me want to puke!).
On one hand, Casey’s story is far more entertaining than say, Two and a Half Men.
It’s like a joke that never gets old – the pseudo-criminal parents, the retarded son, the lazy daughter
– dammit, someone call Haim Levine – now that 2.5Men may be taken off air, he could do something like “The Big Crime Theory”, starring the entire Serin Clan. Uhm, wait, what was I talking about? Oh yeah, Catch-22.
My point (yes, there is one!) is that is far too freakin’ funny to write about the Serin Crime Family. Just ask the guys at CampIdiot – close to 1 million views on the “Casey Serin: Back in the Game Thread. Not even the StormFront invasion has been such a hit. BUT – and this is a
I’m beginning to think the Retard-O Crime Family have slapped our Cuke Boi silly, and all this attention has made him hide behind mommy’s skirt. And that is a bad thing – after all, this blog is nothing without Casey, and he has been living under a rock for quite a while by now.
Except for that bankruptcy thing.
So, here’s our own Catch-22: if we keep on posting Casey’s illegal activities, he’s gonna be running scared and we aren’t going to get any more juicy stuff from him. But if we don’t, he’s going to continue screwing with the law (because quite frankly, I believe he’s pretty concerned about how easily die haterz™ are able to find what he’s up to) and abusing the system.
You may wonder how much Casey really cares about us – I have, actually. At first, it was pretty obvious he didn’t give a shit; we were like flies and he was like shit (sorry about that). Things change, though, and I particularly would love to think Casey was blown away by how fast the Haterz found out about his BK papers.
And I’m sure he was convinced his BK thing would be tossed away (he actually PLANNED it that way, the bastard), but I bet he was surprised at how quickly it happened. Trustee made a motion to dismiss due to failure to appear at meeting of creditors. It was over in just a couple of weeks.
It’s a good thing, because had he gone to court, things may have ended up like this.
Which would have been pretty funny, now that I think about it.
By now, he has witnessed not once, or twice, but a shitload of times how a group of organized people can easily thwart his criminal schemes. He must have read the comments at CampIdiot where at least two people admitted to sending detailed information to the trustee regarding his parents bankruptcy:
It was true. I did send all the information to the US Trustee Program link, and I’m doing it again with Casey’s. Anna’s BK was dismissed, and I’m sure Casey’s will, too. This will probably take years, but I fucking swear I’ll do anything I can to fuck up those bastards lives.
Casey’s Vagina wrote:
Well then, he got at least two document dumps cuz I sent a package as well. I also contacted Cash Call and told them Casey omitted them as a creditor on his list to the court. I hope they showed up at the hearing yesterday.
Oh and FUCK YOU CASEY
Oh yeah. Blogging about how you are planning to commit a crime is the best way for authorities not to know your next step.
Even worse – considering he’s almost an on-the-run sociopath by now, he must have been pretty scared when Haterz found out where he was hiding. It was simple, and stupid, really – but still, an undeniable reminder that CampIdiot users are far more cunning and resourceful than people would like to believe.
First – remember when Casey Serin was in cahoots with a crazy lawyer named Edward Maggio, Esq.? Well, at that time he did a video for ReclaimYourRights.com. And he left a couple of clues regarding his location.
And no, I’m not talking about his gigantic moobs (“man-boobs”), his cheap suit, his Ellen DeGenerate style, or his mom’s Lycra t-shirt. Check out the house he’s showing.
CampIdiot does all the work:
Casey was in a place near a lake in West Sac. Sort of the northeast corner of town. Someone found a house on MLS that looked very much like the model he was doing his brief webcasts from last summer. Who know where he is by now though. Probably couchsurfing with his non-Internet using girlfriend.
If you google peychev, a second address comes up as well. 3589 St John Rd.
Now, street view that in google maps. Doesn’t that entryway look just like the one in the reclaimyourrights video?
- The side garage faces the main door, and not the street.
- The side garage is on the right side.
- There’s a small window separating the front door and garage.
- Doors are yellow / pale color.
- There’s a multi-window facade on the entry.
- Double doors.
- Slit window.
- There’s a lake nearby, like he said.
- The house belongs to his uncle – Ulyana Peychev’s dad!
- The house is in default.
Lenders: Casey Serin may be hiding at 3589 St. John Rd. Fire away!
All in all, it should be obvious by now Casey IS somewhat scared of the Haterz, and he has disappeared off the Internetz, again. We have no way of knowing when (if) he’s getting married, the name of her beautiful soon to be child bride (ha!), the state of 4932 Dewey Drive, or how the Serins think they’ll celebrate X-Tina’s 18th Birthday. But we had some fun, didn’t we?!?
Of course, we may have had more fun if we hadn’t tried so hard to find out what Casey was up to. The only thing we sort of know by now is that he added Sac City College ’11 to his education (of course, being the idiot he is, he didn’t notice the year is supposed to be the one you’ll be graduating in, not the one when you started taking classes). That’s not enough, my friends.
Things could be worse, of course.
