Why I (mtk) Started The MilTownKlan And Where It Ended Up

Half of the reason I record so many videos (and make so many blog posts) is to be able to go back and see what I was REALLY thinking at the time. I also attempt to do it in a way that's at least mildly entertaining, not only for you but for me as well (it's rough watching/reading old stuff if it's CRAP)!

Here's a video that shows pretty much the exact moment I came up with the MilTownKlan (the actual exact moment was earlier that day or the day before, I artistically made it seem like I came up with it "on the spot").

More Background To That Video

There are other videos I could point you to, but here's the basic story. I had just recently moved back to the US (from Taiwan) and I decided to try to "play by the rules" as far as government/legal stuff goes. I was more of a wing-it/operate under the radar type of guy back then.

My brudda from anotha mothah gave me an old car of his (that I knew he loved) so I could, and this is the crazy part, volunteer for Big Brothers Big Sisters (you needed to have a car for the "out of office" volunteering). So I get the car. Then I decide to register it in my name even though it was legally registered in my home brother's name, plates were good and I was pretty much set to go (ah yes... playing by the rules...)

Well... I was going to school and working practically full time at the time and it was a BIG DEAL taking the time off work to go to the DMV. What happened at the DMV is this:
Teller: Alright, the cars all registered in your name.
Teller: Oh! We can't give you a plates until you pay this ticket from Madison.
Teller: Pay it here? lol Don't be silly.
WHAT THE FUCK! They just fucked my right in the ass with that one. I went in a responsible citizen trying to do shit right, and came out with a sore butt hole. Now I was riding dirty...

To wrap this up, me trying to volunteer and be a good citizen turned into running into the wrong cop on the wrong day while I was doing the wrong thing (got over zealous with accelerating, it was a fun little tricked out car) on my way to school.

I would have been OK with the speeding ticket, but that "nice" officer gave me a ticket for displaying the wrong plates and... some other shit, I can't remember. All while being a Grade A Dick of course. It all amounted to about $400 (which was a lot of money for... shit, I don't care who you are, $400 is a lot of money).

I vowed to NEVER pay to those tickets. The city will drop them or FACE MY WRATH! (Which still might not be much of a wrath, but I'm getting there.) Guess a little angry is still in me. :)

What The MilTownKlan Turned Into

I was staying pissed at the city, trying to figure out how to formulate an alliance of people to ATTACK and something else happened while I "wasn't looking" (I obviously was looking the whole time, just not really noticing the profoundness of it all). The online version of the MilTownKlan took on a life of it's own. At the time, I was thinking "Yeah, yeah, that's cool, but we have SERIOUS BUSINESS to attended too!" (something like that was going on in my mind).

Anyhow, this video seems to represent the height of it all. I was totally not responsible for it. The "Klan" was (that's right muthafuckas! People are going to think of some different shit when they see Klan when all is said and done).

That happened and... I guess I was too caught up in life to really nurture it the way it should have been nutured. I want to change all that now. I no longer have ill feelings toward the city (but there's still a lot of shit that needs to be changed) and I'm ready to "step back" and let this thing grow naturally (while following the strategies laid out in the book "Tribal Leadership" | available, in audio format, free here).

If you're interested in being a part of this resurgence, hit me in the comments. WE are putting together a small group of passionate individuals to lay out our initial "core values" and "noble cause."




  1. That's some BS with the DMV. I can't believe that with all the wealth and technology at our disposal something like paying a ticket has to be done in person like that. That's garbage lol.

    I'm really excited to see this coming back. I'm gonna do all I can in the coming months to help out. The the core values are set, what do you think the next phase will be?

    1. I'm guessing the next phase will be helping each other out with the online stuff (those who need/want that sorted). Then helping everyone get the offline sorted (we all need that right?) And while that's going on, we'll have discussions about what the "noble cause" is. For me, it's something like "Spread awesome and teach others to do the same." A job that will... take a long time. ;) We might have to define awesome, or use a different word (or different phrase!) But you get the idea.

      I'm reading about what to do after that and I'll probably read it a couple times but it's a three step process of... Something to do with assets, something about strategy and... I can't remember. lol (Reading it like RIGHT now.) Basically we look at the noble cause and figure out how to reach it with what we have.

      Maybe it could be something larger like "Spread awesome and joy to every soul on the planet." Yeah... I like that one. :)
