Starbucks - "Crimes Agains Humanity" and The Savior of Bees

In this episode: We learn that Heather Grace Gracie is giving CPR to drowning Bees, feeding them with PH Balanced water... Also, discussing Starbucks' Crimes against Humanity with their latest coffee cup that causes Social Justice Warriors break out from their Safe Spaces and throwing themselves off the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco (Those SJW's who picked a different bridge to jump from - please don't be offended I'm not discriminating against other "perfectly good to jump from" bridges)

The Q&A Part 1

Youtube.com/Zoltan - Q & A Part 1 - You guys sent in a lot of questions so I'm going to spread out the answers in 4-5 videos in the upcoming days... In this one... First Guitar, What's On The Bucket List, Ninja Knot etc... Keep the questions coming...

Everyone Survived The Birthday Surprise

Grace Gracie (a.k.a. Chee-Chee's) birthday surprise worked out pretty good... I escaped with only a minor injury. The P.O.H. was strong with us all day long - we succeeded to make her Bday (more like BirthWeek) a good one. Next Zlog - coming up - we took her to play with Sharks and Stingrays...

I tried to hang her off the CN Tower

Day 1 in Toronto... I planned to talk Grace Gracie (a.k.a. Chee-Chee) into doing the Edge Walk... Quickly realized that will be a "no go" ... Also in this episode... Don't mess with a hungry woman... and your complete trust in modern technology is may be foolish... (faulty glass floor 1500ft up)

On tour it can be challenging to Zlog ...

We are rolling through Canada, and as I promised I'm making as many "Zlog" entries as possible... but it can be challenging as there is never a quiet place...  In this episode, there is a glitch in the matrix, someone steals the organic food bars, Pierre tells the Police to freeze, and Ivan adopts Chris Kael's workout methods...

International Suicide Prevention Day - 9.10.16

Today is suicide prevention day...  We (Five Finger Death Punch) have dedicated various songs (and videos) to combat this serious issue in the past....   Life is the most precious phenomena in this vast (mostly dead) Universe. Throwing away something so precious, sounds insane to me, but I understand a lot of people find themselves in seemingly hopeless situations they can not see a way out of. To them, I must say - without the shadow of a doubt - there is always a way. It's not a guess, it's not pep talk ... I KNOW this with absolute conviction. 

You have to understand how existence and perception are linked together and what your greatest power; your free will and your freedom of thought really means.

Simply put, your perception, your thoughts are yours alone and you have the absolute power to control them. [While everyone's situation is unique and can not be generalized, the power to monitor and control your train of thought is true to all] 

When you can not change your circumstances, there is one thing you do have the power to change ... YOU! You can change the way you look at every situation, you can change your filters, you can change your aperture. Make an actual effort to control your, mind, monitor and DIRECT your thoughts, take responsibility for your perception and the filters you see the world through. 

So change your mind, Change yourself! Change into a version of you, who can in fact deal with whatever it is you are facing. Force yourself to find a perspective where from whatever happens is a win. It's a choice, this free choice is mankind’s true gift.  

In this process...  notice, that *YOU* can watch your own mind babble, run amok,  formulate thoughts and constantly talk to you...  then ask the question...  if you can watch your own mind...  then who are you...   *who* is in charge...  who the 'person' that's watching your own mind... For me it is ME - Zoltan Bathory who is in charge....

Outsmart life, outsmart your own mind! It's is so simple. Every Battle Is Winnable Unless you give up your power to choose. Choose to win, chose life. Exist.

Ps: If you see someone else struggles ... Reach out and remind them of their power...

 

While you are at it - do some good in the world. Support a charity, participate in food drives...  

Here are a few from the dozens of organizations we started, involved, with or support: 

** The Home Deployment Project:  http://www.thehdp.org/
This is a Las Vegas Based nonprofit organization I helped to jump start. Run by combat veterans, we are helping homeless veterans to get off the streets and reintegrate into society. Frequent food, and water drives. Connect through the website if you want to help. 

** Also founding member of the:  http://www.raiderproject.org/  - helping Marine Special Operation (Marsoc) and USMC combat veterans to connect with each other, and reintegrate into the private sector. 

** Our current tours are supporting the Badge of Honor Memorial Foundation - helping the families of fallen police officers. Get involved : http://www.bohmf.org/      * Support and respect the "Thin Blue Line'

Zoltan Bathory & The Family Bazooka...

We had a photoshoot for another Gun Magazine at Straight 8 studios, then at a gun range, and then back at the P.O.H Compound ... Our videographer Pierre (a.k.a. Switzerland) haven't seen the crown jewel of my collection - the RPG7 - before - so it was pretty funny when they got finally acquainted.  (Yes it is an RPG 7 but family RPG didn't sound as good as "family bazooka")

I popped my plane crash cherry

Every crash you walk away from is basically a landing... and the trick of being a successful pilot is keeping landing exactly as many times as you took off. 

This "crash" was more like a mechanical failure induced involuntary landing. The towing cable has broke during takeoff - so we just bounced back onto the tarmac. If it happened 5-10 seconds later, it could have been a hairy situation...

What's the worst car ever made? Let's find out...

....actually... Me, Zoltan Bathory, I don't have to. I already know. It was the pride of (then communist) East Germany. The first car I ever drove. It was the "Trabant" with its 2 stroke 500cc engine putting 18 horsepower to the pavement. (For reference a kids 125cc dirt bike puts down around the same.) So imagine a 4 seater car with that power struggling... literally huffing and puffing around on the highways of the eastern block, dumping enough smoke in the air that the Navajo's could read it cross Atlantic...  It was both amazing and absurd... you have to see this thing. 

On our last trip to Berlin with the POH Crew, we have found some - check this out :

Episode Zero - The Birth of the ZLOG

So this is Episode Zero, the video that suppose to sum up what this Vlog is about & what to expect in the future. Tough job for a 4  minute flick, but if you are not familiar with what we do, it gives you a pretty good idea. Our life is about the #POH  - First and foremost, we have been listening to the fans (as you see we are actually doing it) so the Zlog is happening.

I started an actual OFFICIAL Vlog about my journey. I usually DO things instead of trying to document the things I do, so bear with me until I figure out how this is going to work.  I can't promise to upload a video every day,  my schedule is way too busy for that,  but I will do my best. I have a small team helping me now so we are hoping to make 2 maybe even 3 videos a week, and if we are ending up with one... well it's still a weekly Zlog.  

So.... The Zoltan Bathory - my personal P.O.H. (#POH)  My "Pursuit of Happiness" is fairly colorful - as you know - I travel the world with my band Five Finger Death Punch. It is a massive adventure on its own, but besides playing shows for you beautiful people, and navigating this band through the world. The remaining time I have left I tend to fill up with something interesting (to me) And interesting to me is all things  "High Speed - Low Drag" - so you will see me race (and occasionally crash) my Monster Truck. I'm a boater, I love the ocean so there will be some of that. I also fly planes and sometimes strap myself into fighter jets in attempt to induce a good old fashioned motion sickness driven projectile vomiting. Haha. No luck so far, I can take my G's but we WILL find my braking point, worry not.   

Speaking of breaking point... I'm competing in Jiu-Jitsu tournaments as well - so you might see me getting my ass kicked - which is good news for the handful of haters (love you guys), so I'd like to encourage them to subscribe to my channel as well. There is nothing more satisfying than seeing your least favorite guitarist getting choked out, or possibly even being on fire in racing accident. (The gifts of life man) So hit subscribe if you don't want to miss that. 

Other than that,  I will show you cool places around the world form Japan to Africa. I love dispersing high velocity projectiles so we'll be shooting a lot, maybe (definitely) drive some tanks over various vehicles. We'll keep visiting veterans and army bases, shake some hands do some good.  I was involved in the invention and design of various crazy things, amongst them even a flying motorcycle (no joke) so that might pop up in this....   And the adrenalin-free  part of the day, I build and run companies which has its own wins and struggles, so we can include some of that as well... I personally love the chess game of business, but I don't know how interesting would that be in youtube videos. You tell me. In fact do tell me.

Leave a comment, tell me what you guys want to see more of (or less) ... or if YOU know of something, or have something you think I should put on my bucket list  - fire away - I might come and check it out.
