Ilze Berzins


The revolution in Ukraine has completely derailed me from my intended blog, which was to be the duality of LV FB friends. I intended to transcribe private messages to me where friend calls another friend a fucking cunt while doing smiley face in public. But this is so tacky and banal. We all know people (especially LV FB people) are two-faced stab-you-in-the-back types. Nothing new here. But, for a time, it did preoccupy me when I heard, for example, ex-friend Laima Berzins urge another friend to unfriend me. And when John Christmas confided to my dog, Canis Lacuk, that I was a sick bitch. And when I learned that former editor of LAIKS, Astra Moors, wrote gleeful gossip about me to my best friend Ernests Piesis.

All this was wiped away by the events in Kiev. LV FB friends all supported the revolution, and I realized that there is much more going on in the world than petty back biting and character assassination.

On the fine art of Blocking:

No this is not the technique of block printing on fabric you may have learned in art class nor a step in dressmaking your mother may have taught you.

LV FB Blocking is a vicious form of shunning, far more devastating than the Scientologist or Amish practice of turning a member into a non person. Less extreme, perhaps, than the Voodoo religion which  transforms a person into a zombie.

But still.

Here is Aleks (Tapette) Tapinsh’ comment: I have blocked her, Karlis.

Karlis Streips responds: I have just received advice from another person that Ilze, whom I have blocked, is actually the same person you have just blocked.

Get this. Two grown men (?) competing on who blocked Ilze!

Likes are cheap as shit but to earn a LV FB block you must really be out there.

I was “out there” simply commenting on Canadian versus American health care practices when I was hit with not one, but two full frontal LV FB blocks.

Ilze Berzins: Did you know that wealthy Canadians travel to USA for their medical needs? The reason is because there is a bottleneck of care in Canada. Waiting for, let’s say, an elective colonoscopy takes three to five years. So Canadians go across the border to New York, to Ogdensburg, for the procedure where there is a special clinic which caters to Canadians, on a cash basis.

Aleks Tapinsh: Just paid 1, 170 for prescription medication I need for my sex change operation.

Vidas (Wide Ass) Germanis: Hmmm… Elective choices… Invasive endoscope or reading the trollings of Ilze Berzins… Methinks I can have my lower GI evacuated by Monday.

Ernests Piesis: Wide Ass. If it takes you until Monday to get done with cleansing, you are so full of shit your eyeballs must be brown.

Note: Anyone that uses the word “methinks” is clearly fucked in the head. But I’ll let that pass.

The upside is that I’m on a new planet now, setting my watch by Aussie time since I now have Australian friends who have not yet blocked me.
