Tucker Max is a douchebag

I recently discovered the website TuckerMax.com where an unemployed man, Tucker Max, posts stories about himself and his sexual exploits. Max (shown in the picture on the left) has posted numerous stories on his website about getting piss drunk to the point of vomiting, being an asshole to women and everyone in general, having lots of sex, and being a huge dickhead. I suggest you check out his website to judge for yourself exactly how much of a tool he really is.

Max's stories, while somewhat funny at first glance, quickly get old. The worst part is that even though they are obviously completely fabricated, Max pretends that they actually happened in pathetic attempt to build himself up as a self-professed "stud."

Max has also written three "books," if you can even call them that. One is a book of pick-up lines and the other two are supposedly reshashes of the same bullshit stories he posts on his website. If you look at the reviews for these books on amazon.com, you'll see that they have an inordinate number of 5-star reviews from people who have never before reviewed any other amazon.com products. These are clearly fake reviews submitted by Max and/or the group of retards who kiss his ass on message boards on his website. How pathetic. I'd be surprised if some of the guys who frequent his website haven't already had man-on-man gay sex with him.

What's even more pathetic is that Max is at least 30 and yet still gets drunk every weekend and hangs out at frat houses with kids barely half his age (these frat parties are probably huge "sausage-fests"). What a pathetic loser! If he reads this blog, I'm sure he'll post a comment that "I'm just jealous of him," or some crap like that. I can honestly say I'm not even remotely jealous - I'm just disgusted at how much of a douchebag he is. There's nothing more pathetic than a pompous blowhard.

"unemployed"? he makes in the three figures, and is a new york times best seller list author. he may be an ass clown, but hes a talented writer, and makes more than you ever could.

Justin, you are soooooooooo jealous it isn't even funny, sad, sad, sad.

Cockly McBeefwell said...

I'm not Justin and I do make more money than Tucker. Unlike him I am a professional who followed through with my degree.

Tucker's a fucking joke and so are you for idolizing him. He's almost certainly completely full of shit about his alleged sexual exploits (the most likely scenario). However, even assuming arguendo that his stories are even 50% true, he's still a dipshit - no decent woman wants an STD-ridden "man" who has fucked tons of skanks and talks as much shit as him.

"arguendo"?
never heard that word, you mean innuendo?

and to the other poster, "he makes in the three figures"

WOW,three figures?? you mean he makes between 1,000 and 9,999$?

I think you meant very low 6 figures. Not bad, but for how long will he be making 150,000$ for?
Probably not for much longer.
Of course, as long as he has mindless retards worshipping him for repeating the same story over and over, anythings possible.

Yet another website devoted to Tucker? When will the gay stalking end?

Wow, how great is it that when you are trying to make fun of the other guy for writing "three figures" you are too stupid to even know what three figures means?

$1000-$9999 would be FOUR figures you fucking idiot.

Tuckermax is a loudmouthed jerkoff. He needs the message board because the sycophants on it somehow validate his existence. He knows he's a loser and overcompensates with pseudo-alpha male braggadocio...his writing is sophomoric at best, his narcissistic grandeur is predictable and weak, and he's clearly just trying to make a bunch of hype money quickly so he will never have to work.

His whole schtick was done far better by PJ O'Rourke many years ago.

Anonymous said...

He's far from unemployed and by calling him that you're implying that all authors are which is idiotic. Also, how can you claim that his stories are "fabricated" without any proof at all? Even if his stories are exaggerated he's still a very talented writer and a very intelligent. Plus, he probably makes more than you (even though you say otherwise), gets more sex and has a much larger following then you could dream of. Then you direct people to his website which could make even more people interested in his stories and end up purchasing his book. You're helping the enemy. There's no such thing as bad publicity. You sir, are the true douche.

Cockly McBeefwell said...

Hey anonymous (8:08 PM above), if you honestly believe what you wrote then you're a fucking moron. Are you Tucker himself or just one of his mindless followers?

You sure seem to fawn over him - he's so "intelligent" as you say. I guess that means you want a piece of him.

I don't disagree that he's "intelligent" - he's certainly "book smart." Duke and U of C are both top-tier schools. However, he's the typical trust-fund dipshit who is given all the opportunities in the world to get ahead but throws them all away to be a complete fuckup. Do you really think it's cool to get blackout drunk almost every weekend up into your 30s and beyond? If you're over 25, then you must know that only unemployed losers do shit like that. The rest of us live productive lives and experience what it is like to be an adult. At some point in the near future he'll be "that creepy old guy" we've all seen hanging out at bars trying to pick up chicks totally out of his league.

As for money, if you really think he's making $150k in profits from his website and crappy little books, I think you're sorely mistaken. If that's true then why is he always aksing the idiots on his website if he can crash with them when he visits differnet cities? Why doesn't he mention all of the real estate and stocks that he owns if he's such a wealthy guy?

You why he doesn't? It's because he's full of crap and isn't doing nearly as well as you stupidly believe him to be doing. The only reason he can survive while remaining unemployed is because his parents almost certainly give him money. Otherwise he'd be living in the gutter with a bunch of bums.

If you're older than 17 or so, you must know that anyone who creates a vanity website like his full of fantasy stories that allegedly happened to him is probably full of shit. Real studs don't go around posting stories on the Internet all day.

I didn't set up this blog to gain a "large following" or make money - I just want to expose Tucker Max as the douche he is.

Anonymous said...

thanks for putting up this website. max is a complete jerkoff who must be exposed. for his sake, i hope he's saving his money because his routine is old and tired. if he parties as hard as he claims he does, it will start to show as he begins to look much older than he really is.

Anonymous said...

I am laughing my ass off right now. The criticisms of Max are partially warranted, even if they are a little harsh. The facts (1) He is pretty hideous to look at. You can't go out every night and booze heavily and not get tubby. I'm not sure what is making him bald since his life doesn't seem to have much stress in it. Though I have read that in secondary and tertiary stages of syphilis, hair loss is common. (2) Most (not all) of the chicks that he has slept with are pretty messed up in some way and, in truth, are not that attractive anyway. It doesn't take a website or book deal to fuck 4's and 5's that also happen to be head cases. They are available at any bar in any town and obviously are in full force on the internet. (3) His writing is terrible, but he is a good story teller. It is important to note the distinction between being a good writer and being a good story teller. (4) Each story probably does have some element of truth to it, but are not 100% truthful, although I'm not sure that really matters. (5) He is 31 years old. We don't really need to explore how pathetic that is and this dude is going to have to do something really extreme to transform his career in the next few years into anything more than a short lived stint on some type of a reality show on Spike TV.

In fairness, the guy had a great idea and has exploited it for financial gain so you can't knock that. The advance on his book - $7,500. If he has a good book deal he is getting about 12% of every book sold. Lets say for arguments sake that he has sold 40,000 books. Which is probably a little high, but a good number to use. At $13 bucks a pop that works out to about $60,000. His site and message board and other related activities probably earn him another $100,000 a year so that is not a bad living.

You also can't knock that he was able to sell enough books to sold enough copies to get on the Extended New York Times best- seller list for two weeks earlier in the year although The New York Times list is not based upon total sales figures, but instead upon surveys of a selected sample of retail booksellers. Point is, he sold some books. If he can keep finding frat boys and damaged chicks able to relate to him then he can probably sell a decent amount of copies of his next book filled with the same stories.

I think this site is pretty funny, but you are a little over harsh on the guy, but you are right. The bottom line is that Tucker Max is 100% Douche.

He's probably becoming obese due to all of the hard drinking he supposedly does. Hard drinking like that is not good for the skin, so he probably looks really old in his face. I want to point out to the person above that the main reason he's going bald is probably because he's in his 30s. He's not a young kid anymore, and his male pattern baldness is kicking in.

i hear he does have bad skin but uses semen to hide the pock marks

"Also, how can you claim that his stories are "fabricated" without any proof at all? Even if his stories are exaggerated he's still a very talented writer and a very intelligent."

Funny how Tucker claims his stories are not fabricated without any proof at all and yet you still believe him. I'm not buying the "ask my friends, they'll tell you it happened." His stories are already getting holes poked through them (witness Max getting owned on the O&A Show). This will continue until he is finally unmasked as a fraud or shown to be a genius.

Tucker isn't much of a writer, he sort of fell into this. He has a very small but obedient fan base who think he's the next (name your favorite writer here). Facts are, he's not a very talented writer technically. If he misuses "literally" again in one of his stories I will literally kick a hole through a wall. He is a good storyteller, but I think he's run out of material. Not much new stuff has come up on his site and he's getting to the age where he is starting to look pathetic. The funny part of the TMMB is when Tucker gives writing advice. He's probably gives the worst advice out of everybody on his board, yet he has a group of guys who celebrate his turds like they were gold so he looks smarter than he actually is.

Look at what happened to Tucker when he went away from his fan base. Happened on the Huffington Post website as a response to a review some hack chick did of his book. Tucker did an "idiot guide to begining feminism" that basically got him laughed off of the front page of the HuffPo. Outside of his fanbase, Tucker is just another drunken male, and the readers of HP let him know in no uncertain terms what they think of him and his writing.

Unless his next book isn't just another rehash of his somewhat bullshit stories, then I think it's safe to say that we're almost to the end of his 15 minutes.

Good riddance.

I agree, Tucker should stay in his little hole, fuck 17 year olds and brag about it to his idiot fan base. That's about all he has now besides the myth of his TV show that will never be seen on Network TV/ Basic cable, or whatever.

Dude is a fucking liar, I'm hoping The Smoking Gun takes him up on his offer to fact check his stories and he goes the way of James Frey.

Tucker Max is about as much of a writer as Puck or Steve-O were/are actors. They are riding off of the ability to convey some sort of sensational negative charisma and appeal to base teenage male interests.

Good for him, being able into the wider Maxim audience out there and run with it. It doesn't mean that I have any respect for him as an artist, but business-wise he has made something out of nothing.

I read the NY Post article. It's just a matter of time before someone evolves that idea and hires a callgirl to seduce him and secretly record the antics. My bet is that the guy'll come off like a true one-pump-chump.

ps what's with that Bunny chick? She looks very bottom-average for the ex-girlfriend of such a supposed lothario.

In case you haven't heard how Tucker writes the majority of his stories, he "apparently" (I'll throw that in for the abundant skeptics) listens to tape recordings of his drunken adventures, and manages to piece a rough story. Now of course, this isn't going to be complete truth, but if everyone is going to bitch about how he fabricates his stories, about how there's no proof, where is your own proof? Don't offer up an argument when the facts are scarce on your end too. So go ahead, call me the Tucker Max fanboy if thats all you can manage to think up. Most likely.

Cockly McBeefwell said...

Anonymous/Brady (10/23/2006 9:45 PM), so you think that we should believe everything Tucker says unless we can prove he's lying? Great logic. So does that mean that if I tell everyone I just had sex with your slutty mother, everyone should believe me until you prove that I am lying?

Anonymous said...

Ouch! Slutty mother comment, lightning wit strikes again. You kind of missed the point there, champ. I'm not saying to take everything Tucker says as true. Take it with a grain of salt, or whatever floats your boat. Besides, if you insist on putting things in layman's terms, where I'm saying that Tucker's stories may have actually have occured, as he lives in those areas, drinks in the same places, etc.; you offer up your certifiably mature response by taking shots at my mom, who you don't even know (etc, we won't get into that). I'm not denying that Tucker's a dick, but when you make a blog naming him a douchebag, try not to fall into the same category.

Does Tucker Max live a productive life? Has he ever worked an honest day in his life? There's nothing worse than a spoiled rich kid who shoots his mouth off about how great he is and how shitty everyone else is. The Internet world needs to know that he's full of shit.

Tucker's stories are funny and he tells them well. What kills me and most of us here is that he actually believes his own bullshit. We all know a guy just like him. Always running their mouth about this and that, while funny at times it gets old real quick.

I feeled compelled to say that the creator of this site, and many of the others that have left comments, are almost certainly poor and stupid; I think you guys suck at life, and your hatred of this guy comes from your own insecurities and inadequacies. Why undertake, and invest so much time in, this ultimately pointless endeavor, especially one completely about another man? You guys blow.

For all of Tucker Max's trendies out there, the Japanese said it best: If you believe everything you read, don't read.

Cockly: I agree with what you're saying. Yeah, Tucker's a douchebag. Yes, he's gained popularity from selling his exaggerated stories (come on, everyone, destruction of personal property involving a motorvehicle? There really would've been a police report from the "Absinthe Donuts Story") And finally, yes, he's made a ton of money and attracted a large following because of all of this.

All in all, the burden of proof falls on Tucker (YOU post/publish the shit, it's up to YOU to prove it. But since most of this happened years ago, there probably isn't much proof to go find. People move on with their lives and things get forgotten. Another little mess Tucker has had conveniently cleaned up for him).

But as for getting angry about another Internet douche? Come on. People live lies everday; they're called CEOs and politicians. I guess you'd say Tucker's in the Entertainment business. So what if he bought into all of his lies? So what if his flunkies write false reviews and try to censor unfavorable information?

LoL, then one of his followers comes here on 02/10/06 to let you know that Tucker makes more that you, scores more pussy than you, and has a larger following than you.

Jealousy? I seriously doubt that. This site resembles Maddox's somewhat. Mostly text and NO FUCKING ADs. Money? You are not your bank statement. Pussy? We'll even use Tucker's def: Anything with 98.6 degrees and 2 moist holes. And a larger following? I don't see you in the media running around like a "raging dickhead" (sorry, borrowed from his book AGAIN) trying to prove this guy's a liar. Then again, why would you need validity from idiots who buy into those stories so easily?

You all have too much time on your hands. I've had nights similar to Tucker Max. They're not that uncommon to be truthful. He just has a way with words to make them sound very funny and interesting. Most of you just want to prove him wrong and break him down because he's achieved something most of you never will. Grow up.

HAHA, all of these speculations stemming from the man's income are willfully ignorant to the fact that HE IS EMPLOYED. He created a blogging website entitles "Rudius Media", from which he pockets over $300,000 a year (not including the book profits). I absolutley LOVE people who spend their time being jealous A-Holes instead of producing something valuable and entertaining (such as the blog of one T. Max). As for verification of the income numbers, I'll simply leave you with the work RESEARCH. Your petty posting drove me to look up the numbers myself, and you should be obligated to do the same. I recomend that you never post anything again, because the internet is already filled with misleading info as it is. God bless Tucker Max, and anyone else who is using their life to bring humour to others and live vivaciously (even if he probably does die at 40). Peace (except to cockly mcbeeflicker).

To me, Tucker Max wishes he was Neil Strauss, but he had no job, no women and a frat boy's imagination, so his junior high school sex stories are so outlandishly fake that I'm not surprised that the only readership he has are from illiterate 19 year old beer guzzling fruits.

The guy's popularity is on a major decline. He's been outed as the loser he is. Go to alexa.com and see how his website which peaked around 3,200 is now hitting the skids. He is passe, yesterday's news and the kids are figuring out he's a creepy guy in his mid-30s.

Recently he was saying how he was enjoying the $$millions of free publicity. Sure, look how well that worked for Paris Hilton's last movie.

Still, the most fun is watching his 20 year old supporters violently support him. "Tucker is a God!" Please, that's so 2005. Like Tucker.

That's his choice. I don't find that pathetic at all. I'm 34 years old, a "top government scientist" and I get drunk every weekend.

Just because this is not how you choose to live your life does not make someone who does a "loser" or a "douchebag."

When I went to Tucker's site, two things struck me:

1) He is really not an asshole. People with bunches of friends, who take pictures of them and post them are not assholes. Real assholes have M.O.'s where no one is their friend long enough to have the kinds of relationships that Max has, as shown in his pictures or in his books. Real assholes also do not give advice like the kind Tucker does on how to write well. When I went to his site, I was expecting something totally different- something colder and creepier (which I would have respected). Unlike many, I read some of his book before I visited his site. I didn't know he existed before IHTSBIH.

2) The chicks are not hot. One picture actually shows chick turds in a toilet, and the girls themselves are just basically not attractive. I'm not implying I could do better, I'm just saying I expected to see home-grown, fine, preppy hotties that he has scored with, and this is not what I am seeing- after his site being up for several years. I just saw girls with plain jane looks. Personality-wise they may not be plain jane's, mind you.

I read his book on a vacation and laughed my ass off. It is what it is, just humor. I never thought the stories were 100% true.

Reason being is that he should have had a few ass kickings by now if he said all of the things he said.

He is obviously a bright guy (U of C and Duke) so it's kind of a shame that he chose to throw it all away. He might of made a difference in the world.

But whatever, the stories were still funny. I was wondering what happened to him and I cant believe there is this much animosity directed toward him. At the same time, I can't believe the supporters he has, albeit a few. He might want to consider a job for the future, I can't imagine this one is going to last.

I just finished reading "I hope they serve beer in hell". It was entertaining to say the least - but it's too hard to believe. I really think that Tucker wishes he was the guy in his stories. I mean there is no way all those things can conceivably happen to one person....absolutely NO way. I mean c'mon... he's fucking some rich chick in the hot tub and later finds out that some guy is standing over a balcony watching them and jacking off. And then the guy says "thanks for saving me $9.95...WTF?? He shits all over a hotel lobby... fucks a chick in a vegas bathroom stall while everyone watches, the shit on dick story, and on and on and on and on...they just keep coming.. these outrageous stories. Maybe one or two are true... the rest are either stolen from other people or more likely, flat out lies. By the time I was done with his book, I hated him and didn't believe a word of his stories.

Anonymous said...

I'm returning the book. There is no way that guy deserves to profit off this garbage. When the book store asks why I want a refund - I'll say because you sold me a "Non Fiction" book... yet, after I read it, it's anything but NON FICTION..... it's a total fallacy and I want my money back for being mislead.

Anonymous said...

Hahaha has the same guy who wrote this nonsense been posting comments on it for three years? If so I think the "I have more of a life than Tucker" argument is seriously weakened. I don't read his stuff much anymore, but he is still talented and entertaining. And since he doesn't seem to care much what (almost certainly overweight and socially awkward) internet losers like yourselves think of him, the "burden of proof" doesn't fall anywhere near him. If you don't like his stories or don't believe his stories, then don't read his stories. You act like he comes to your house and slips then under you door. You voluntarily go to his site. Then you create a site and write long poorly worded posts about how big a loser he is. It seems like the only one who "wants a piece" Tucker is you. I am not saying your jealous, I am saying you want to have gay sex with him. Just to be clear.

He is NOT a good writer. A middle school kid could write as well-better, actually. It is not jealousy people are expressing, it is disgust. He is NOT an author. He wrote some trash and that is all. Are the penthouse letter writers authors? Then Tucker is too.

Anonymous said...

I like his stories, and have nothing against him personally...I happen to think he is attractive and judging him (or anyone) by their salary is ridiculous when it comes to measuring one by their character. With that said, I will now rant....
What bothers me, are the idiot whimps who idolize him as their alter ego...you know the types; the guys who are scraping the bottom of the barrell with women and friends. (They are probably uneducated dweebs who leave the house on occasion only to rent "American Pie" and buy a 6 pack of Natural Ice...They suck in general...) They read Tucker's books and become fans of his webpage and want to act/be like him. Why? Because it's so easy to be a jerk or an asshole. It's easy to pick on fat people and make fun of the girl who wouldn't fuck you with someone else's vagina. Those guys get a sense of control and power (albeit a false sense) over people in general - especially women. Now, I must admit that the women Tucker writes about are pretty low class, dumb sluts and it makes my skin crawl to think that they would be so desperate for a man that would chew them up & spit them out. (Maybe they like that...?) I consider myself to be above-average intelligence, with a great sense of humor and pretty well balanced... and I really liked his book. I don't know him personally, but his stories were entertaining & funny...as long as people can read between the lines and understand that one man's perceptions on his own life don't have to be adopted by every other man, I would recommend the book.

What this guys knows even if he stumbled into it accidently, is business. His book is mediocre and repetitive at best, but it's a given the 18-24 male demographic eats its up and was responsible for a majority of the sales. The writing is so redundant and predictable every "story" resmbles in some way a story that has already been told a million times on college campuses across the US, just change the names and places. I finished this fucking book in the hopes that some of the intermittent sparks of humor would potentially lead to at least one uniquely hilarious recollection. It did not. But if you liked this book that's ok - leaf through the pages 20 (hell even 5) years from now and embrace the shame you feel for having read it. I am jealous though, good salesmen. I'd sell out for the money and unlike these exaggerated stories, that's no bullshit.

I know Tucker Max exists only because a couple of days ago I saw a news story about the film screening of I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell and how the film promotes rape type illegal activities according to protesters. That got me interested enough to find out who Tucker Max is/was. I expected to find much worse than I did. I didn't feel the stories encouraged illegal activity anymore than a ton of other entertainment stories and products do.

Tucker Max is bright enough as a writer and some of the stories are pretty good. Tucker Max would appear to be his own worst enemy if he made this movie version of his book independently so he could exercise creative control. Just because you can write a few stories and sell a few thousand (I guess the figure is around 400,000?) books of a series of bizarre stories revolving around debauchery and sex does not mean you have the skill to make and market a film. Early reviews state the film is quite terrible and not even in the it's fun to watch because it's terrible fashion-just simply terrible. Without a major studio and horrible advance buzz such as this, the film is dead in the water. Even deader than Idiocracy, which failed because it offended corporate America so Fox refused to market it with so much as a poster. The fact it's become increasingly popular after all this time is a testament to the talent of Mike Judge.

Tucker Max is not Mike Judge, he's not Hunter S. Thompson, he's not a lot of people-he's Tucker Max. If he really is the person he writes about in those stories and has no wish to change, then it's all downhill from here. Some of that behavior, while entertaining, is truly psychotic. Narcissism, by the way, doesn't sell tickets or get good movies made-it can get in the way of talent, though, that's for sure-Tucker Max does show talent with these stories which are obviously a mixture of truth, writers embellishment and complete fabrication. Continuing with a lifestyle such as the one described is a one way track to painful suicide at age 34, where he sits today. He can hold on maybe ten more years at best without some major intervention.

The funny thing is, some of the scenes in my film and book, Cutting Confessions, are similar to some of the types of things that occur in Tucker Max's book and film-partially because some of the story is set in a world class psychiatric hospital, Las Encinas in Pasadena, California (for the past year they've been making headlines for all the wrong reasons-a 14 year old girl was raped there and two patients died within 24 hours on a unit run by a guy who really is a douchebag, Dr. Drew Pinsky of Lovelines and Celebrity Rehab fame.) But not all of the scenes read like a Tucker Max chapter or scene. If they did, there would be no linear story which is true of I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell and is one of the books weaknesses. For example, in the film Borat, although Sacha Baron Cohen uses humor that is at times clearly juvenile, it is funny and there is a linear story-he is traveling to America to make Pamela Anderson his wife-therefore you have a reason to root for him. But Tucker Max keeps giving you reasons why he is such a dick but he has no goals and no objective other than to be the biggest dick he can be and bang as many chicks as time will allow. In Cutting Confessions, even though there are a number of crazy characters because of the psychiatric hospital setting, the linear story is a man and woman meet in this hospital and fate not only brings them together, but fate continues to ensure their paths cross again and again. Eventually, they fall in love.

Tucker Max doesn't come across as someone willing to work with others and force his ego to take a back seat once in a while which is a necessity for making a film, which requires the talents of many people. Had he done that or if he matures in the future to that level, he might have a chance at something successful-but until then very few people will want to work with him.

Update: I just joined the message board at tuckermax.com after finding out he gave a speech at UCLA and reading it. It was a pretty good speech, nothing like you would expect. Also, its clear from the content of the speech some of the material was written over a period of time and is not factual. I didn't expect him to be this deep of an individual, so maybe there's more hope for him than I thought.

Tucker is a huge asshole and a tool but worse are the people who believe his shit and that he is some how cool. I'll give the guy credit he's a douchebag but he's not stupid. He basically came up with a gimmick to make money off all the other douchebags in the world. There is a wannabe niche out there of guys that would love to be that big of a so called player so they just eat the shit up and Tucker makes his money. Wake up people the guy never provides any proof to any of the shit he says. Amazing how someone can remember word for word exactly what they said to cut some chick down in a bar when they are tucker max drunk..Fuck you tucker max you fucking liar. Truth be known your probably into amputee midget porn you tool

wow you people LOVE him! i mean, i read the book, shits funny, but for all of you to get so worked up over it and jealous... it seems the man is doing something right!

Tucker was right....the haters (like this page and most commenting on it) just prove that he has reached that point of fame.
It's hilarious how much some people hate this guy...when all he did was write about stuff he did and people loved it.
Honestly...I read his stories and it's the writing that makes it funny...not the stories. I played Junior A hockey in Ontario....I've seen far crazier stuff than this guy writes about. I guess I should have wrote a book!
You hate on him and call him names...but why?
If you think he's lying and making it all up...shouldn't you pity him?

Sounds to me like a bunch of people thought they were "livin' large" in their hayday and got one up'd by this guy....therefore they hate him. Cockly McBeefwell even said "assuming arguendo that his stories are even 50% true, he's still a dipshit".
Buddy...relax...if you don't think his stories are true or only half-truths....then you don't think he is nearly as much of a jerk as he himself says he is.
So you must be ticked that he made money and got famous from it.....which is just jealousy.

Tucker Max is a damn funny writer. I don't care if the stories are true or not...they are entertaining and a good read. And that's what I paid for when I bought his book.

Cockly: Bet you can't come up with at least one reason why you're not a douche. You're a whole bag of douches, in facy. So why don't you think really hard and come up with a good blog idea for once. Then you can be famous too. Like Tucker. BTW - Love all the advertising your current blog gets. Have fun by yourself tonight on NYE.

Just the fact that this page is up shows how much people are taking note of him. Good or bad. At least he's making a mark!

Anonymous said...

Bobby Casella, you are a complete pussy! Look around this blog - it's hasn't been updated in nearly three years. I think that Cockly has moved on.

You must be one of his fanboys who jerks off to his fictional stories. That might explain why you posted a message at 6:56 AM on New Year's Eve.

So I was being totally retarded the other night and going through random websites and suddenly my computer was infected with some kind of virus thing with spyware and whatever. I don't know what's wrong with my computer, so I try to go to system restore, but system restore is infected and I can't restore anything :c. I just got a pop up telling me that spyware is infected or whatever. What's that mean and how can I fix it :c... I'm like freaking out :'c. [url=http://gordoarsnaui.com]santoramaa[/url]

hahah you know what's funny. people on here are pissed and raggin on whether the guy is real or not and he's just laughin cuz he made a quick buck and people are still paying attention to him whether they hate him or not. I mean this dude paid enough enough attention to write a blog about a blogger! hahaha.. so what if he embelished his stories to make money or that he's a cheapskate who fell into money.. do you persecute a sci fi writer for making up a fantasy world. or a lottery winner for hittin the numbers and winning big time? hahaha.. so funny how people get so angry and feel like blogging is making a difference hahahaha.

I happen to know the man himself along with most of his staff used to make the movie. He can be a nice guy, but the people around him are just completely opportunistic and assholes to put it bluntly. He was young and immature when he started it- no excuse, and it's time to grow up now. The "fratire" is old, the movie a disaster, and he is in no way some sort of genius. The money is running out and there are alot bigger and more important things in the world than the shit he writes,so essentially, game over. Who would read the next book after the movie? And seriously, can it be any different from the first?

you guys...Tucker is awesome. if you think that the stories in his book are anything but NON-FICTION your life really sucks. First off, you don't know how to party and be an asshole AND still have people loving you and get laid. I am a 23 yr old female and I believe everything in his book because I have friends that are exactly like that even WORSE. It doesn't make them douchebags, they just don't care. I'm as much of an asshole as Tucker is and I'm a female. I haven't slept with as many people as he has, But lets face it, the only reason is because there are more attractive girls than there are attractive males. I am very shallow and hell, if I can't brag about you then I won't fuck you.
And whoever says Tucker is not intelligent is an IDIOT. First of, IF these stories were made up, to come up with shit like that, you gotta be smart. To have that kind of sense of humor you have to be a fuckin genius. How many stupid people do you know that can make funny awesome raunchy jokes ? I know zero. But I do know a LOT of intelligent people that are fuckin hilarious including myself. For you dumb guys, save your "slut", "whore", "easy" comments to yourselves. Thing is, double standards don't exist in my book. Its okay for me to open the door for you, to buy you dinner and lunch...all that is acceptable, and why is it not acceptable for me to be a player instead of a whore? Fuck, I am that girl that fucks a lot of hot guys and never call them again because their personalities suck. Girls that get so hung up on guys are pathetic...and I am not one of them. and you Anonymous 6/10/2010...if you didn't find the movie funny your life is probably miserable bc you have no sense of humor. Honestly, I probably could fuck Tucker if I wanted to...thing is, he's not cute enough. BUT, MAYBE he could be my first not- so attractive guy. who the fuck cares, he's Tucker Motherfuckin Max. You wish you were as much as an asswipe as he is and make the amount of money that he does. FUCK, I would LOVE to get paid to be an asshole. Long Live Tucker Max!!!
*R6vixen*

i have always found it funny that people are so concerned with the things other people accomplish and how they do so that they dedicate websites to the act of bashing them. say what you will but who among all of you have written a NY best seller.

I'm a little confused as to why this post was made. Tucker Max is aware that he is a raging dick-head. In fact, he uses those very words to describe himself on the back cover of his book. He makes it quite clear in his book that he is an asshole, that at the time he was stupid kid, and furthermore that his actions aren't recommended in any way.

If you read his books, you'll find that he is in fact a good writer, certainly not as "classy" as a classic author, but nonetheless witty and entertaining. It is clear that these books are truthful, even though they are obviously exaggerated to be more entertaining. But at the end of the day, I don't understand why it matters whether or not he fabricated his stories. Tucker Max has a certain persona which makes him so entertaining. In some ways, he is almost like a fictional character with fatal flaws. His ridiculous stories may not be as good as a normal book, but you don't read them for literary analysis. You read them to laugh and be shocked by his outlandish behavior.

Lastly, by calling Tucker gay on this post, aren't you no better than him? You're making ridiculous claims and insults about him in THE EXACT SAME MANNER HE DOES ABOUT RANDOM PEOPLE WHEN HE IS DRUNK AT A BAR. In short, this post is nothing short of pathetic and ignorant. And in Tucker's words, "If someone can't take a joke, fuck him."

Tucker Max is no different than all these stupid reality show people making millions. This guy is making Millions. Trust me. $150,000 is low balling him bigtime. Of course his stories are fake. Some of the stuff he writes about are just geeky. Cool guys don't act like 15 year olds at 30. He is a spoiled prick who doesn't have to work. He is similar to a scott disick from the kardashians. In a normal world 99% of us live in this guy would get his ass kicked at bars he goes to, but he goes to yuppy nightclubs where nobody fights and are full of drama. Its easy to fuck a girl at a bar. There is liquor and a 2 becomes a 8. He must not drink that hard because when I get drunk I don't remember shit from 11pm until I wake up the next day.

I'm a medical student and I shudder to think how many strains of HPV (or worse) this guy has (and is spreading around). Absolutely disgusting!! I can't even imagine how *proud* is mom must be. Yikes!

Well, truthfully i was not a fan. it was funny and everything but it has some humor that doesn't really suit me. I like all those funny movies that about sex, drugs and getting wasted like everyone else, but i still am maybe a little young to know how this really applies to some peoples lives, it does nothing but make me think my life is boring. Haha. Its about a guy who is a complete jerk and just wastes his life, picking up girls and getting drunk with his "friends". Eh it was a good book as a whole but only if your like a college student and you can relate to what he's doing all the time.

The bizarre standards and assumptions you carry to help convince yourself that you really do pity Tucker Max are outrageous and this piece so thinly veiled a cover for your undying jealousy of him i actually pity you. First you insult him on a professional level: but how could you possibly claim to earn more money than him? he is a multi-millionaire and you are the author of a blog that reads like it was written by a seventh grader. Your writing is so filled with ineffective redundancies and literary misfires that I cant help but wonder where you got this degree that allows you to self identify as a "professional". I mean even if every story he has written is wholly fabricated, then he is at the least, a writer creative enough to keep people reading his 200 page books whereas you are so weak a writer that you couldn't even compose a one page essay good enough to keep me, a casual reader, from getting so disgusted that I decided for the first time in my life to respond to one of the idiotic things I've read on the internet. So congrats, because you are officially the author of the dumbest thing I've ever read ON THE INTERNET. The internet: aka the Mecca of stupid shit that talentless idiots post for lack of a legitimate medium, you know like maybe a book deal? like the kind Tucker Max has because he's talented? Then of course come the personal insults. You seem pretty sure he hangs out primarily at "frathouse sausagefests" despite any even vague evidence. And frankly, even if he spends every waking moment of the remainder of his life in a room with nothing but men in their early twenties doing nothing but drinking beer and wearing polo shirts, you can't really insult him because he has already had sex with more women than you could ever hope to (including prostitutes!) But hey, im probably just Tucker Max himself or maybe one of his "mindless followers" defending him in the hopes of being rewarded with "man on man gay sex" with my hero. Anyway Im sure your "career" choice is super fulfilling, not to mention profitable, so, cheers have a good one.
