Tiger King Coin investor draws crowd attention on the streets of Amsterdam with custom wrapped Bugatti Chiron supercar in support of Netflix star Joe Exotic

AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS, September 17, 2021 / — Spotting a $3,000,000 supercar in person is a rare event but standing next to one wrapped in full tiger print on Amsterdam’s iconic streets may be a once in a lifetime occurrence. That was the scene today as an eccentric car collector toured Amsterdam in a Bugatti Chiron wrapped in tiger print, emblazoned with slogans that would not have made sense as little as a year ago. The supercar is adorned with #FreeJoeExotic and $TKING decals, along with #虎年, translating as “Year of the Tiger". As it pulled up in front of the famous Charging Bull statue the unique vehicle even drew stock traders, eager for their own chance of a memorable snapshot, off the floor of the nearby stock exchange.

To many, the name Joe Exotic is a familiar one. The 2020 Netflix television show released at the beginning of the pandemic was estimated to attract some 64 million viewers and the larger-than-life star, currently imprisoned some 7000 miles from Amsterdam, is gaining international support for his release. The car collector was quoted as saying, “I’m just like everyone else who watched Tiger King during the pandemic (I think there were about 65 million of us across the globe…!) As crazy as the story was, it helped us get through a really tough time – so I figured I’d support something that supports Joe via his fan coin, $TKING. It seemed unfair to me that he is locked up – I don’t believe he ever tried to kill that b*tch Carole Baskin… plus I love tigers – and since 2022 is the Year Of The Tiger – it all makes perfect sense – you see?”

But why the $TKING slogan? Tiger King Coin is a cryptocurrency launched earlier this year that aims to help Joe in his bid for a retrial of the case, with hopes the conviction may be overturned. Evidence recently obtained by his legal team has surfaced to suggest that he may have been framed by various individuals in coordination with prosecutors. Additionally, the Netflix star was diagnosed with signs of prostate cancer in October of 2020, and because of COVID restrictions in the U.S. prison system, has remained untreated. To support his fight for justice and health, the $TKING token has designated a portion of the overall supply to his legal and medical expenses, as well as more broadly supporting big cat charities, and gearing up to celebrate The Year of the Tiger, which begins in February of 2022.

Is $TKING the next big token, like Doge Coin? It certainly has several things going for it. Celebrity crypto currency Youtuber Matt Wallace claims to hold almost as much $TKING as $Doge, a story that has garnered coverage in international media. Several weeks ago, Netflix briefly posted a "Tiger King Season 2 coming soon" message which usually indicates a season is about to be released. And in a few short months, Asian markets will gear up for celebrations to welcome the Year of the Tiger. Beyond the celebrity status, the token is being developed into a true utility centerpiece, with multiple Decentralized Finance Applications (DAPPs) in development. Capitalizing on the NFT craze, the developers are rumored to be working towards a tiger-themed NFT launch with metaverse (crypto-based online gaming) tie-ins. The team’s whitepaper also details plans for building a launchpad to leverage the already established ties to media personalities eager to launch their own Celebrity and Charity tokens.

The Tiger King Coin (available at is traded via Uniswap and online exchanges. It will shortly be available via Credit Card purchase, allowing anyone to become a holder and to help support Joe Exotic’s quest for justice.

Could a coin dedicated to a Netflix star that captivated the entertainment space in 2020 become something big? Should crypto traders be asking #whenBugatti instead of #whenLambo… stay tuned!

Patrick Kilpatrick celebrates policy wins and vows more is yet to come

Patrick Kilpatrick - California's Next Governor

Kilpatrick For Governor

Patrick Kilpatrick for Governor

Vote Kilpatrick – Visit

After the California recall election, Patrick Kilpatrick celebrates making a historic statement and lasting impression.

LOS ANGELES, CA, US, September 17, 2021 / — Patrick Kilpatrick is celebrating the substantial wins in the 2021 California Gubernatorial Recall Election.

Not only did Kilpatrick leave his indelible mark on Californian politics but he forced Newsom to re-evaluate his policies.

Take for example the following 2 reactionary responses to Kilpatrick’s proposals:

On July 16th, 2021, Kilpatrick proposed a competitive 25% cash rebate to BRING BACK FILM PRODUCTION TO CALIFORNIA.

On July 21st, after years of neglect and silence, Gavin Newsom announced 330 million dollars pledged to the California film incentive program.

On July 16th, 2021, Kilpatrick proposed preferential water rates to organic farmers and humane animal food production.

On July 21st, Gavin Newsom reacted with a humane animal food production initiative.

Other visionary, doable solutions were offered by Kilpatrick and his team such as:

Announcement of the TOTALITARIAN TARIFF



And many more as listed at

No other candidate had such a comprehensive plan of attack to solve California’s issues.

"Thousands upon thousands of votes and climbing – with no marketing budget, minimum campaign costs, no banners, no TV or radio commercials – simply filing fees and the energy and vision of our team.

"We reached millions of people in California and worldwide with vision and purpose on a campaign costing less than the price of the filing fees. All grass roots efforts, heart and message!

Can others say the same?

"Thank you, fellow warriors: Heidi Bright, Mariya Samoylova, Raphaello, Jeff Schneider, and Robert Bane. I urge the voters of California to become engaged and continue to hold government accountable for themselves and our children, for the world as an example."

You can not stop an idea. Kilpatrick will continue to offer Uncommon Sense where others offer stagnation.

Cynthia Bailey Named USA Fibroid Centers Ambassador

“Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Cynthia Bailey joins USA Fibroid Centers Founder and CEO, Yan Katsnelson, M.D. to spread awareness about fibroid disease.

Real Housewives of Atlanta Star Will Help Raise Public Awareness of Fibroid Symptoms and Treatment

We are proud to announce Cynthia Bailey has joined the fight to empower more women to learn about fibroids and minimally invasive treatment options.”

— said Yan Katsnelson, M.D., Founder and CEO, USA Fibroids Centers.

NORTHBROOK, IL, USA, September 17, 2021 / — "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star, international model and successful entrepreneur Cynthia Bailey has been named a USA Fibroid Centers Ambassador to increase fibroid awareness. As a fibroid ambassador, Bailey, who successfully underwent Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE), will encourage women to have more conversations around fibroids and treatment options.

"We are proud to announce Cynthia Bailey has joined the fight to empower more women to learn about fibroids and minimally invasive treatment options," said Yan Katsnelson, M.D., Founder and CEO, USA Fibroids Centers. "We applaud her efforts to bring public awareness to the fibroid epidemic that affects over 26 million American women. Conversations about fibroids are essential because they can lead to screening and early detection. If more women are made aware of fibroid disease and its symptoms, they are more likely to be proactive about seeking treatment."

Bailey, who has shared details about her 14-year struggle with fibroids on her TV show, successfully underwent uterine fibroids embolization (UFE)—a minimally invasive procedure used to treat fibroid tumors of the uterus that can cause heavy menstrual bleeding, pain, and pressure on the bladder or bowel.

Bailey first learned she had fibroids when she was pregnant with her daughter Noelle. Other than heavy menstrual bleeding, Bailey didn't realize they would cause any future health problems. However, as her fibroids grew, Bailey's symptoms intensified. She became severely anemic to the point that it was difficult for her to work. Her periods were also increasingly painful, with severe cramping. "I felt like my life revolved around my period," Bailey said. "There were so many turning points and embarrassing moments that I knew I had to get my fibroids under control."

Like most women, Bailey didn't know what caused her fibroids. Fibroids are growths (tumors) that develop from the smooth muscle layer of the uterus. They are the most common growths of the uterus and female pelvic organs and affect 80% of women, with black women diagnosed with fibroids three times as frequently, developing them earlier in life with more severe symptoms. [1]

"We work together with our patients to raise awareness about the benefits that UFE offers as a treatment option," Katsnelson said. "UFE is a non-surgical treatment option for fibroids that preserves the uterus and fertility. Performed as an outpatient procedure, UFE doesn't require a hospital stay or general anesthesia. Most women are fully recovered within a week or two compared to eight weeks for a hysterectomy."

Bailey's recovery from UFE was only one week. "UFE completely changed my life. I didn't know how miserable I was until I had the procedure done," Bailey said. "My only regret is that I didn't do it sooner." As a fibroid ambassador, Baily hopes to encourage more women to make investments in their health. "No one has time for fibroids," she said.

The FDA-approved UFE procedure offers many benefits over hysterectomy and myomectomy, routinely offered as the only fibroid treatment options. UFE does not interfere with a women's hormones or negatively affect other organs like the bladder, bowels, and the pelvic floor. Using ultrasound guidance, an interventional radiologist inserts a tiny catheter into the main uterine artery. Embolic materials are injected that stop blood flow and nutrients to the fibroids, which causes them to shrink and symptoms to disappear. Not only is the uterus left intact, but there is also less risk of excess blood loss, pain, or infection.

"Our mission is to improve the quality of life for every woman with this widespread condition by providing awareness and education," said Katsnelson. "UFE offers the additional benefit of preserving fertility, yet many women are unaware of this less invasive treatment option.”


About USA Fibroid Centers
USA Fibroid Centers is the leading provider of minimally invasive fibroid treatment, with an extensive national network of centers. USA Fibroid Centers' mission is to provide personalized, non-surgical treatment for fibroids using an advanced procedure called Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE). USA Fibroid Centers is dedicated to raising awareness of UFE as a treatment option and encouraging more conversation about fibroids. For more information, visit

AMERICAN BLONDE Launches With Charismatic Southern Rock-Inspired “Quicksand”

American Blonde “Quicksand”

Duo’s Debut Country Radio Single Premiered On Taste Of Country

You can take it strictly as a story about fighting to save a relationship – or you can take a deeper look and compare it to the state of our country right now.”

— Tinka Morris, American Blonde

NASHVILLE, TN, UNITED STATES, September 17, 2021 / — AMERICAN BLONDE makes their Country radio debut with the hooky, Southern Rock-inspired anthem, “Quicksand.” Taste Of Country premiered the single, and fans can stream/download now from iTunes, Apple Music, Amazon and Spotify. Radio can access the track via Play MPE and All Access.

With its addictive groove and accessible message, “Quicksand” deceives with a sparse and simple intro – and then rips the roof off with razor sharp guitar riffs and pounding percussion. The sisters’ vocals are adept – and pushed a bit forward in the mix – adding to the song’s powerful sense of urgency. “It’s all about fighting for what you want and not letting go,” reflects Nata Morris, American Blonde’s lead guitarist and principal vocalist/songwriter. “Love isn’t always easy. It takes work and sacrifice and determination to stick it out.”

‘Cause we’re living in a wasteland
Losing everything we had
We were on solid ground
But that ain’t how it feels right now
It’s like we’re standing in
Quicksand (N.Morris / J.Nash)

Produced by Cliff Downs, the song was written by Nata and frequent collaborator Jimmy Nash. For Nash ("More Than Crazy" Jane By Design, "We Are Made Of Stars" Teen Mom 2), the comparison between love and natural disasters is … natural. “It just felt like a perfect analogy for trying to make a relationship work through tough times,” he reflects. “And I think a lot of people will relate.”

Tinka Morris, the duo’s drummer and alternate vocalist, believes it’s a tune that will resonate with their audiences. “I love this song,” she admits. “You can take it strictly as a story about fighting to save a relationship – or you can take a deeper look and compare it to the state of our country right now. I am so proud of Nata and Jimmy for writing this song. And I loved letting loose and improvising on my vocals,” she adds.

Fans are likely to fall quickly in thrall to the charismatic vibe of "Quicksand." The track is already making an impression, as Eric Dahl of American Songwriter reflects, “It sucks you in with sweet sibling harmonies and the organic instrumentation supporting the lyrics.” Markos Papadatos of Digital Journal predicts the duo will “lure their listeners in from the first verse."

It's a safe bet that American Blonde is on solid footing with the release of “Quicksand.”

Fans can learn more about American Blonde through their website and socials:

The duo is comprised of principal songwriter/guitarist Nata and drummer Tinka Morris. A powerhouse of talent, the sisters’ music is raw – a testament to the Delta roots that nurtured them. The extensive live music scene around their Cleveland, Mississippi hometown drew them like magnets to festivals, fairs and fish fries where music was front and center, and the sounds of The Eagles, B.B. King, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Allman Brothers, Elvis, Stevie Nicks and more echoed throughout their home. Entertainers since their pre-teen years, the siblings have literally lived their lives in the spotlight – and loved every minute of it. Their determination and talent earned them a slot competing in the 2014 Texaco Country Showdown, which led to the release of their first EP (produced by Alabama’s Jeff Cook). Two well-received CDs, released in 2015 and 2018 (produced by hit songwriters Gerald O’ Brien and Catt Gravitt), followed. They landed three Top 25 hits on the MusicRow Chart with “Anything Is Possible,” “I Think Too Much” and “Don’t Let Another Day Go By.” They’ve toured throughout the U.S. and the U.K., sharing the stage with diverse acts, including Maren Morris, Old Dominion, Brantley Gilbert, Easton Corbin, B.B. King, and others. Their high-energy stage shows have earned them spots at CMA Fest, Bluebird Café, The GRAMMY Museum® Mississippi, and The GRAMMY Museum® Los Angeles, among other high-profile venues. The Morris sisters call Nashville home.

Acclaimed Hollywood Director and Producer, Brian Connors, Examines the Impact of 9/11

Good Men

Brian Connors (left), Ed Asner (middle), Mark Rydell (right)

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, September 16, 2021 / — In the worst terrorist attack ever against the United States, our country was struck at the preeminent symbols of the nation's wealth and might with airliners flying into the World Trade Center and killing or injuring thousands of people. As a horrified nation watched on television, the twin towers of the World Trade Center in lower Manhattan collapsed into flaming rubble after two Boeing 767s rammed their upper stories. Also attacked was one of the Pentagon's five sides. Another jetliner crashed in western Pennsylvania

Acclaimed director and producer, Brian Connors’ first job after graduating Rutgers College in 1976 was a waiter at THE WINDOWS OF THE WORLD restaurant atop the North Tower. “It was a memorable, elegant introduction to NY City. I had just arrived into the city to become an actor. My heart goes out to all the survivors who lost loved ones that day. Like the Kennedy assassination in 1963, there are many questions and doubts about the “official story” which are debated in my film 'Good Men' starring Ed Asner & Mark Rydell."

Good Men is a 12-minute short film starring Ed Asner and Mark Rydell, written & directed by Brian Connors and produced by Sean Tracey. Associate Producers were Dean Jamali, Neal Wilde, Tom Downey, Phil Gillin, Riley Bodenstab and Mehrdad Sahafi. This micro-budget, two-character film was shot in one day. The drama takes place on an afternoon before an Oscar party. The characters played by Asner & Rydell get into an argument over the Holocaust, the proposed mosque at ground zero and the conspiracy allegations surrounding the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center. Good Men won Best Short at The Los Angeles Arthouse Film Festival in 2012 and The Grand Prize at The New Media Film Festival. The film screened in over 80 film festivals in numerous cities around the U.S. as well as around the world.

Good Men Trailer:

Brian Connors current film SENIOR ENTOURAGE starring ED ASNER, HELEN REDDY, CHARLIE ROBINSON, MARION ROSS & MARK RYDELL was recently released on Amazon, Spectrum, Comcast, DirectTV, Dish, Vudu etc. by SP Releasing. Executive Producer Jared Safier is the sales agent.

Pamela Anderson joins the fight to protect Antarctica’s waters

Actor and activist Pamela Anderson joins the Antarctica2020 group in their efforts to ensure greater protection of the waters that surround Antarctica.

LOS ANGELES, CALIFONIA, UNITED STATES, September 16, 2021 / — The campaign focused on increasing the protection of Antarctica’s waters received a huge boost with the announcement that actor and activist Pamela Anderson will be joining the Antarctica2020 group in their efforts to ensure greater protection of the waters that surround Antarctica.

The world is warming, and the polar regions are warming the fastest. The Southern Ocean — which has buffered humanity from the full extent of climate change — is reaching a tipping point. Thousands of the world’s leading scientists overwhelmingly conclude that if we don’t take immediate action to tackle the nature and climate crises, ice melt will accelerate, and sea water will rise and warm to terrifying levels. This will have disastrous and irreversible impacts on ocean life and threaten human existence.

Antarctica2020 is a group of high-level leaders from the world of sport, politics, business, media and science, that are using their influence and connections to highlight the need for the full and effective protection of Antarctica’s Southern Ocean, through a network of large scale marine protected areas that are off-limits to exploitation. These safe havens will help protect this unique and important wilderness and the amazing wildlife that it houses.

The addition of Pamela Anderson to the Antarctica2020 group, as a long-time supporter of human, animal and environmental rights and a powerful voice for the planet, is a huge asset for the group and the campaign.

“I have been an activist for more than two decades and see more and more how important it is to radically rethink our relation towards nature and animals. The state of our planet affects all our lives. Many people don’t realize that even Antarctica, one of the remotest parts of the world, plays a major role in how our planet functions. We need to do everything we can to safeguard it, which is why I have joined this campaign," said Pamela Anderson.

The powerful ocean current that encircles Antarctica pumps nutrients to the rest of the ocean globally and its icy waters act as a global thermostat, regulating the world’s climate system, keeping the planet cool and livable.

“The climate crisis is melting Antarctica’s ice much faster than predicted. This is already having disastrous impacts on its amazing wildlife such as penguins, seals and whales, all of which are struggling to keep alive amid all these rapid changes to their home. It is absolutely terrifying, as we are speeding towards a number of tipping points, that are the point of no return for the region and the planet.”

Antarctica2020 is working with its NGO partners including the Antarctic and Southern Ocean Coalition (ASOC), The Pew Charitable Trusts, Ocean Unite, Sea Legacy and Only One to ANTARCTICA2020 ensure world leaders agree to take urgent action this year to protect these waters. Through their #CallonCCAMLR campaign, that launched earlier this year, the aim is to focus eyes on the little-known, but hugely important, international body that has the power to protect Antarctica’s Southern Ocean – the Commission for the Conservation on Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR).

Three proposals are on the table to protect large areas in the East Antarctic, Weddell Sea and the Antarctic Peninsula, covering nearly 4 million km2- 1% of the ocean. Despite the urgency of the issue, progress has been slow, and governments have been stalling conservation decisions for years, unable to come to the unanimous agreement needed to ensure further protection. In October 2021, when member states meet at CCAMLR’s annual meeting, they must stand together and agree to create three marine protected areas, which are proven to protect ocean life, build resilience to climate change.

“We really need world leaders to step up their game and show real political leadership. They can make history this year by protecting these areas in Antarctica and securing the greatest act of ocean protection ever. We must fight for action for ourselves and future generations because there’s too much to lose if we don’t.” said Pamela Anderson.

Notes to editor:

Antarctica2020 is calling for high-level leadership, multilateral cooperation and sustained diplomatic efforts to ensure action is taken to protect the Southern Ocean—the world’s greatest remaining ocean wilderness. This protection will safeguard Antarctica’s precious marine life, build global resilience to the effects of climate change and create an environmental legacy that will benefit humanity for generations (
