    Now you all think I'm in that gay subculture that seeks out bearded weightlifters and hairy chubby guys. Right? Admit it, that's what you think, isn't it?

    Note: "Bear Enthusiast Keith Rogan" in the text below the clip down below. Though I don't know if you can see that text unless you click to see it on YouTube instead of here in this post. But, trust me, if you watch it on YouTube I am a noted "Bear Enthusiast."

    I suspect that term is generally used on gay porn websites, but thinking back, all those History Channel people were from LA and some of them were kind of ...fabulous... so I can see how a mistake like that could be made. Likely, this commercial was edited in between vids of oiled up German men.

    I had never seen this trailer, but this morning a family member came across it and put it out on Facebook.

    Couldn't they have said "Bear Expert" or "Bear Author" instead of Bear Enthusiast? It mostly annoys me because the contract said they were also to plug my book in any adverts in which I appeared, as well as in the show credits. This vid on YouTube only has 3000 views, but probably had 30,000 on the History Channel website when the show was current. At seven bucks a copy and one or two (or five?) hundred sales, it might have meant a night in Anchorage with a huge pile of cocaine and a couple of hookers, or maybe just one hooker, because two would probably give me a stroke.

    Or, I could have wasted it on my sons college tuition and the house account, where all my money was going in 2014.

    So, here I am playing a "Bear Enthusiast" on the History Channel.

    I met Treadwell several times (before he got eaten, not after), because somebody introduced me to him as a person knowledgeable about bears. The last time I met him was the fall he got eaten. He was buying gear at the the local sports shop "Mack's", and since I knew he had previously only gone into the bush during summer when the bears were fat, lazy and docile from eating salmon, I told him that they are different animals during the hungry times of the year. It was late September or early October and I politely advised him not go back out, or at least take pepper spray (suggesting a gun would have set him off into a PETA frenzy), because they were dangerous when the salmon runs were over. He could be an arrogant little prick when the cameras weren't pointed at him and he was an ass that day, dismissing me like I was an idiot. Now, I'm used to being treated like an idiot, but usually with kindly Christian pity. Treadwell was just an ass, playing macho spiritual guide for the woman accompanying him. He made a little speech about these bears being his "friends" that would never hurt him, and suggested that people with attitudes like mine projected negative vibes that made the bears angry. He really said that, or words to that effect. I don't think he had a spiritual bone in his body, or believed any of the crap he spewed about that. It was his magic show and ticket to C List celebrity status.

    He didn't introduce the poor woman he was dragging out there with him, she just kind of hung back, silent, submissive. She seemed depressed or angry. I gather she was some kind of a celebrity groupy back in LA. Treadwell hung out with people like Leonardo DiCaprio, so that attracted girls like this one. Maybe that's not fair, I'm just repeating what other people said. Treadwell was asking for it, but this submissive young woman was dragged into this awful death by him.

    I also knew the pilot that took them out there and we talked about it some time after it happened. He is a very nice guy, and he also tried to talk Treadwell out of going in that season, and offered to give him pepper spray, which he wouldn't take on "spiritual" principles.

    A normal person would not be in all that much danger, because a normal person doesn't approach bears, or camp in the middle of these alder grizzly mazes that bears lay up in at night, or do any of the other stupid things that Treadwell did to attract bears. And a normal person has a huge bottle of pepper spray and/or a gun with a caliber starting with "4." Treadwell broke all those rules, every time, and only got away with it because he came in summer when the bears have full bellies and are docile. Now, he was going to break the last rule and do it all during a time of year when food is scarce. Bears kill each other over food in the fall, Treadwell and his latest girlfriend were walking sausages out there.

    Yeah, well, right now I'd imagine you are sitting on your veranda sipping whiskey while watching the sun drop over the Sonoran desert, while he's presumably worm food somewhere in the United States. There's something to be said for negative attitudes....

    Rather reluctant to post here as i am not gay...just had to get that out of the way. Not that there would be anything wrong with the gay thing. For clarification. For the ladies. Hellooo, ladies. Love you all.
    But, love the Kodiak Beer.

    Actually feel sorry for men. Who wants men in their porn? Dudes would be out of work if it weren't for da bears.

    Edit: Read his book- a good time and explains a lot about our man bear.
