Have another Blog Topic I should write about?? Fill out the form!
One of my Rudies has a bunch of questions for me: What inspires you outside of casino gambling? What do you see as essential qualities in being a great friend? You see your Rudies as family. I am very impressed by that. That loyalty is ingrained in your personality. Methinks your own family was very instrumental in instilling that quality in you. As well as the kindness and acceptance that you exude. What constitutes a bad day for you? What makes it better? - Cathy Zawacki
Thanks for all the questions Cathy! Outside of gambling, family is very important to me. I've always been an extremely sensitive and sentimental person (though YouTube sure has toughened me up, haha). I'm inspired a lot by my family, by seniors in general and those who fight to make our world a better place in every way. Even seeing an older person who reminds me of my grandparents gets me teary eyed. Just last week at Plaza Casino I couldn't stop staring at this old man playing poker on an old coin machine, and the joy he exuded when he hit 5 Aces! He was so proud that he pulled out his flip phone (awwww!!!) and messaged someone quickly. In comes his twenty or thirty something nephew to celebrate with him. That whole silly moment got me so emotional. So yes, inspired by family and beautiful people.
I have many life-long friends back in Canada and have made more in the US. It's important to remember where you came from and to keep in touch. I'm not the best at that, but do try to see everyone when I visit family in Toronto once a year. The single most important aspect to being a good friend in my opinion would probably be listening and understanding their side. Personally, I've always had a hard time speaking my emotions in person, but it is something I'm working on. And yes, my Rudies are like family. After moving to Los Angeles, Marco and I left all of our family behind. We just have each other, our friends and our Rudies. And because the Rudies are so damned like-able, they make it easy to love them so much. I've never been a part of a group so accepting, so positive and so lucky, haha. If I had a nickel for every time they landed the grand on a 50c bet 😂.
Every good quality I hold was instilled in me at a young age by my parents. They're exceptionally great role models and I always ask myself what they would do in certain circumstances in life, because they just made it all look so easy.
We all have bad days. Sometimes I get in a depressed state of mind and there's nothing that can take me out of it. Marco will ask me what's wrong, and I sometimes can't put my finger on it. It could be as simple as 1 out of 100 comments being negative towards me, or the fact that my numbers are sliding, or that I just didn't get enough sleep. I don't think I'm any different from anyone else in this, and that we all get down on ourselves at one time or another. If we didn't, we wouldn't be able to really delve inside of ourselves and find out who we really are. I always question myself on how I can improve in life, or how I can bring more joy to others. If we do only really have one life to live, I may as well try and make it the best for me and those I surround myself with. The best remedy for me is time and decompression. I really think I'd benefit from meditating, but I don't think I have the patience for it, haha. Going to bed and waking up are the worst for me because my mind will never turn off! It's a blessing and a curse I suppose, haha.
So yes, outside of gambling, I love my family, my friends and my life. Not everything is going to be perfect, but that's life. If everything in life were easy what would the point be? For those times when life gets you down, if you have any ideas on how I can get out of a 'funk' or sleep better, feel free to let me know on our Facebook Post for this blog, or share a photo of yourself doing it on Instagram and tagging @BCSlots.
Or to see a sure way of me having a good time, check out this live video with my bestie Slot Queen as we gambled the night away at the Casino!

I have died multiple times.
The first time I died was back in 2012. I was standing outside of my car, in a dingy alley, when a guy came out of nowhere and shot me. He threw me in the back seat of the car. I was later discovered by cops in the trunk of my car.
The second, third and fourth time all happened the following year in 2013. First I was shot by my brother, then in a robbery and finally when I became infected with a virus that turned me into a Zombie. I was a natural at being a zombie and booked that film role right away. Oh sorry, did I not explain these were acting roles? Oops. Let me explain. The first one was on the hit Canadian show, The Listener.
Then in the hit film "A Man is a Man is a Man" written by the under appreciated writer and actor, Brian Christopher, one of my quintuplet brothers shot me.
The latest was the zombie feature, The Returned, which was on Netflix.
Here I am getting the fatal shot by the lead, after eating my father
The most horrific death I’ve had is actually a funny one. I went to audition for a BBC show called Copper. I was super excited because I was auditioning to be a cop and he didn’t die! Well I nailed the audition and the casting director asked me to read for another role. She handed me the script and told me to come back in 5 minutes after I had rehearsed. The new script – I died. You wouldn’t believe it, but it is not an easy thing to do – dying and making it look believable is very hard. And apparently, I nailed it because I booked that role and filmed for a week on the set of Copper. This brutal death had me on my knees as I was shot through the back of the head – with my face, facing camera. It was a masterpiece for sure. And it was cool to have been killed by a huge film star, Lee Tergesen. This episode S2.E5 is available to buy on Amazon,
Aside from those, I’ve also died a lot at the casino. I’ve been killed in the high limit room more times than I’d like to remember. Here's one of my latest as I gambled with $10,000 on a live stream. In an effort to not die at the casino, are those 'More and Better" bets truly BETTER? Find out next week!

Say what?? Over time my sayings have definitely caught on. But where did they come from??
Literally in my first video, I used the word Rude to describe a bad result that started out looking as if it was going to be good. I used it a lot in life and in my videos and didn’t even realize it. It was my viewers who noticed and kept using it in the comments themselves. It caught on quickly and I became the RUDE guy. I certainly didn’t create the word Rude, but I became known for it! And Rudie-Tudie is a play off of Tooty-Fruity (even though they mean different things), and it also means a bad result.
That is all Marco. He started telling me my wins were delicious, and that caught on in my language, which caught on with my fans! And besides, it wasn’t good to just be known for a negative word like RUDE haha.
My fans came up with the name of our Fan Club. I think we spent 2-3 weeks trying to name our group. There were a few names that came up but Rudies is the one they overwhelmingly chose. I was the Rude Man, so it only made sense they were my Rudies. (And right now my Rudies have the BEST chance ever to WIN a free all inclusive trip to Vegas for Rudies Weekend!)
Line it UP
Yup, you guessed it. I just started saying it without realizing. I say it when I want a line hit to line up. For example if my first 2 reels are wilds, or have bonus symbols – we need to line up a win on a payline!
Vowza Schnauza (or Wowza Schnauza)
I’m going to need to research this. I often will pick up phrases from films I’ve watched, and this may be one of them. Maybe it came from my siblings too – they are weird like me, haha. Going back to the Ace Ventura or The Mask days, I would use his catch phrases non-stop! ‘Somebody stop me!’ or ‘Do NOT go in there, wooo!!’ (I was young, shh lol). Regardless of where it came from, its used to exclaim excitement. "Vowza, that was hot"!
My less than proudest moment, when I was ‘Low Betting, High Drinking’ and I got plastered by the end of the video. When closing out, I tried to say “Thanks for watching, My name is Brian and I am drunk!”. Instead, due to my lack of function so to speak, it just came out ‘BRUNK’. Immediately, it became a thing and the fans demanded a Brunk t-shirt. Many fans have bought the Brunk shirt and instead changed the first letter to match the beginning of their name. For example, Wayne=Wrunk, Charlie=Crunk or Danielle is, well Drunk! If you’re up to it, you can even customize your own at CasinoSwag.com. These days I now keep my low betting, high drinking episodes for my Rudies on our private page of Facebook. I don’t need my family seeing that behavior any more. In a recent episode with my Rudies, I broke into improv’d songs like “Shut the Front Door” the musical!
Shut the Front Door
I definitely didn’t create this. It’s in a ton of shows and movies. I think I remember it from Saved by the Bell the most. It’s what I say when something positive catches me by surprise or I get a hand pay!
I’m sure there are many other sayings I’ve said and will continue to come up with. Be sure to mention the others I say on my Facebook Post today! I know you just love to find out tons of weird things about me. So in case you didn’t know, I’m also famous for having died multiple times! More on that in next weeks blog…

HI had a typical suburban childhood in Canada. I grew up in a middle class neighborhood in Burlington, Ontario 🇨🇦(45 minutes from Toronto) with a father (auto industry), a mother (teacher), sister (older), and brother (older still). So yes, I’m the youngest. And bestest. And the favorite. And maybe slightly more spoiled, ha!
I was a grade A kid in Elementary school and a model student. When grade 6 came along, I started to get a little more rebellious but still kept up my grades. At age 11, I decided to audition for my first play ever, The Wiz. I was cast as both Uncle Henry and a munchkin (even though I was always the tallest in my class!). I loved the experience so much that I told my mom I wanted to be an actor. Coming from a family with zero experience in the arts, we turned to the newspaper and I came across an audition for Oliver at a professional theatre. The open call audition said that you must bring your own music and be prepared to follow choreography.
Soooo I showed up in jeans and t-shirt to a room full of ‘professionals’ wearing spandex, stretching and doing vocal exercises. If that wasn’t enough, get ready for this... My name was called, so in I walked in with my music: a cassette tape from the motion picture My Girl. My mom and I were too ‘green’ to realize that ‘bring your own music’ meant ‘sheet music’. They were still very accommodating and scrounged around looking for a cassette player, to which they had none. So instead they had me sing O Canada. At the end of that fiasco, I was so embarrassed yet stuck around for the dancing. Luckily I was able to keep up with the dancing and was offered a role! I was super excited that for this 4 week run at a huge theatre where I was going to be paid $100 total, haha. That experience changed my world and I continued to audition and book every audition I went out for.
The next year I booked a role at that same theatre and was paid $200, double rich! It wasn’t until after college that I switched over to film/tv. Between 11 and 19 I performed in more than 25 plays and musicals both in Canada and even Japan!
I’m proud to say that most of my childhood friends are still my closest today including Brad, Nattalie, Julie, Jordan and my friend Erin, who has been my friend since birth! In high school our weekly Friday evenings revolved around going to McDonalds, eating, being loud and obnoxious, walking to the strip mall and buying candies from the Bulk Barn and renting a VHS from Jumbo Video. We’d then go to Nattalie’s house and listen to Alanis Morissette and goof off. We were super duper cool.
Growing up my favorite shows were Family Matters, Family Ties, Full House – basically family shows haha. And if you’re Canadian, you also watched The Racoons! I’d always rush home from swimming lessons to catch that show. My favorite film was Willy Wonka and I do recall watching Popples repeatedly! I loved playing baseball and was a great third baseman until high school when I decided to trade in my bat and glove for a job.
As far as jobs went, I was always motivated to succeed. I first would babysit. Then I created flyers to both cut my neighbors lawns and also rent out my collection of VHS tapes. I was such a nerd, but a businessman who was determined to save money for college (at 12 years old!). My first job was a paper boy. I got paid ½ a cent for each paper I delivered plus 1 cent for each flyer that I had to stuff inside each.
⬅️I once was newspaper boy of the month and won a ghetto blaster!
I later ran my high schools store and sold clothing on consignment. My real job started at 15 when I worked at McDonalds. By 16, I was a shift supervisor and stayed on until I was 18.
Outside of ‘work’, I was very active in my community. I was struggling with my sexuality in high school, so I filled my time with activities and also acted out a bit in class resulting in my grades slipping in grade 10 (I graduated with a 70 average in the end). I was the chairman of the Mayor’s committee and two others, I wrote and directed plays at my school, I was a ‘big brother’ to a young child, volunteered at an Alzheimer’s retirement home and was even named “Junior Citizen of the Year” by my city when I was 18.
My volunteer work also helped me get numerous small scholarships to College where I studies Theatre Performance. Going to college was the best thing for me because it pushed me to move out on my own and truly figure out who Brian really was. Only months later did I come out to my parents. I was very lucky to have them be so open minded as they had zero experience with the subject before (nor did I really). In fact all of my family and friends were super supportive. I remember emailing my aunts and uncles to tell them and was astonished with their beautiful responses.
I’ve never followed anyone else’s path but my own and have always taken chances with everything in life. I live by the ‘you only live once’ and, ‘you only succeed if you try’ approach. Not every choice I make is the right one, but damnit it IS the right one! You learn and you grow from each and every mistake and experience. And we are also shaped by our family and our upbringing. Imagine if I didn’t have supportive parents when it came to acting. Then none of my biggest successes in life would have come to fruition. I wouldn’t have acted, I wouldn’t have moved to Toronto or LA, I wouldn’t have met Marco and I definitely wouldn’t have had a YouTube channel or be writing this blog as I’m flying off to another Casino event to greet hundreds of people!
So ya, I had a great childhood which led me to where I am now. I wouldn’t have got here without the love and support of others. That is why I always do my best to be supportive to others out there who may not have had it as easy as I did growing up. When I started my YouTube Channel, I had no one reach out with help or assistance and was rather treated poorly for even existing. Because of that, I’m very open and willing to help any new and upcoming channel – as long as they’re willing to put in the work and not just expect me to promote them and voila – become famous. It doesn't work that way. I've been asked numerous times by channels to promote them and offered money in compensation. I always decline and instead tell them to show me they're putting in the efforts and then I'd gladly shoot a video with them for free, using my own money.
Childhood + Drive + Lots of Work + Many Failures = Success
And you know what, it still may not bring you success. At age 18 I came to the realization that I may end up being a bartender for the rest of my life in order to support my acting career, and that was ok. As long as I was following my passion - nothing else mattered. At a young age I watched an interview with the late George Burns who said something along the lines of "I'd rather be a failure at something I love, than a success at something I don't". I've always lived by those words.
If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again! If the outcome is #Rude, try again to #LineItUp. #ItOnlyTakesOne after all. Don't get my sayings? Well you soon will on next weeks blog!
Brian practicing his Slot Face...
HERE'S an awesome Live Stream I did with my parents last year. Did you catch the LIVE last week?
Until the next one,
Brian xoxo ❤️
Everyone seems to be fascinated with how Marco and I met as many have submitted this question!
First off, we are talking 15 years ago!! This is before smart phones and dating apps – ya know, when people used to talk😂. I was living in Toronto and decided to make a trip to London, Ontario for a night out with friends. It was me, my best friend and my ex, haha. We just wanted to go out and party and have a good time. I’m pretty sure it was the only gay bar in town (it no longer exists), and so we were dancing away to tunes from DaRude and Christina Aguilera. Then all of a sudden I saw this young man sitting alone at a bar facing the dance floor. I told my friend, ‘Check him out, so cute!’. Of course my friend told me to go talk to him. And of course, I was too scared to approach him. Then my friend told that if I didn’t go talk to him – then he would! With that, I said fine. But only after I went to the restroom, haha.
On my return back, I’m wondered what I was going to say to him. My brain wouldn’t function so I just went straight for it, “Why aren’t you on the dance floor”, I asked. His answer (and everything about that night including the 60 year old bartenders face, the drinks we had and songs we danced to), I remember. “Because nobody asked me to dance.” Well with that, I invited him to come and join my friends and I on the dance floor. We danced all night and hit it off. I learned that he had just moved to Canada only days prior and was staying in a hotel. The next day he would be moving into an apartment. Being the gentleman and 'cool guy' I am haha, I offered to help him move since I had my mom’s MINI-VAN for the weekend lol. He accepted and after a great night, I dropped him back at his hotel.
The next morning, there I was curb side waiting for Marco at 10am as promised. He on the other hand, did NOT show up. I waited until 10:30am and nothing. I finally walked into the hotel and asked if they could buzz Marco, but then realized I didn’t know his last name. Luckily at that moment, the elevator doors opened and out he came. He was shocked I was there because he didn’t think I would actually show up! I’m a man of my word and I was on time. And in true Marco fashion, he was late! Haha.
Long story short, I helped him move into his apartment and we started our relationship. Turned out I was about to move near him in a neighboring city that following week to live with my sister to save money to travel across Europe, so we were able to see other more often. He was just there working as part of his university credit in Paris, France for a year. So after dating for 6 months, I then traveled and toured Europe for 6 months (long distance relationships are hard, but we’re proof they can work!), and finally we both flew into Paris on the same day. He studied there for a further couple years and I stayed and worked as a bartender, a nanny and eventually running a bar.
And I suppose the rest is history…or history in the making. Marco is not a gambler at all, but he does join me on many occasions in the casinos. Here’s our Favorite Video together playing his favorite game (and theme): Sphynx!
See you next week when we compare flying vs driving to VEGAS!
Brian xo ❤️
“What other than slots, do you do on your spare time??” asks Mari L.
First off, spare time..What’s that?? Haha. Although I do work my butt off for my channel, I do allow myself time to enjoy the things that I love.
Travel. I love to travel the world. I’ve so far lived in Malta, Paris, Toronto, San Francisco and Los Angeles (more on that in my blog in 3 weeks!) and I’ve visited all over Europe, Japan, Australia, New Zealand and Tahiti. Unfortunately (or fortunately) these days I always include casino trips in those, so they become work trips. But NOT when I went to Hawaii for my 10th Wedding Anniversary! There are no casinos in Hawaii don’t ya know ;)
Entertaining. I LOVE to entertain friends and family. Any excuse to have a party, and I will host it. And with each party, I try to outdo my last one. At Marco’s recent Birthday party I found a bartender on Craigslist and hired a company to make tacos on the deck and we even had a drag queen (Cake Moss!) come and perform. For the Oscars I rented a large screen and projector complete with a popcorn machine to make the experience more fun. At one of my parties, just show up and enjoy!
Family. Marco and I are the only family we each have in the city. My family is all in Canada and his are spread between Indiana and Central America. So whenever we get a chance to see our families, we make the most of it. For the second year in a row, we have invited my parents to stay with us for a month in LA (complete with a trip to Vegas of course!).
Sports. I like to watch Baseball as it was the sport I played growing up. Blue Jays are my team. Aside from baseball, I enjoy participating in the end of year finals of other sports like Super Bowl Sunday. I recently went to watch the Toronto Raptors play in LA in fact!
Home. If it’s just me at home for the weekend, I like to get a bit dirty with some handyman work or yard work. I’ve only electrocuted myself twice (I swore I turned off the electricity beforehand lol). As you may have heard, I recently fixed our hot water tank by diagnosing the problem using YouTube videos.
Birds. We have a hummingbird feeder with resident bird, Buddy, who sits atop the feeder to fend off other birds from getting any nectar. He’s a jerk, but I love him, haha. After the death of our cat a couple years ago, he’s the best thing since. We travel too much for a real pet and so we have a fake cat too ;)
Outside of all that, Marco and I like to make random date nights. Our next one is a metro date. We’ve never used the subway metro lines in LA before, so we’re going to explore the stops and find some cool places to visit! And for my Birthday, he’s planned an outing to see the show WICKED, which I haven’t seen before! I’m always open to finding more places to see and visit, so let me know where else to go by commenting on my blog post on Facebook!
To find out more about Marco and I and how we met, check it out next week!

I go through ups and downs of whether I should dress up for Halloween or not each year. Yes, it’s a made up holiday designed to take our money and make us fat…BUT it’s also a time to be a kid again and have some fun!!
Here’s a look at my past creations...
Perhaps the most epic costume happened right before the last presidential election where Marco and I dressed up as Hilary and Donald!! Who wore it best? HA! (Don't tell him I posted this or he'll kill me!)
This current year, I'm not really feeling like dressing up. That said, I will be doing a live stream tonight (Wed Oct 31) from a casino so I need to wear something...I wonder what I'll be??? (I'm not teasing either, I have zero idea haha). If I wanted it to be Slots related, I could be a giant 7, Willy Wonka, Glinda the good witch, a dragon or just a big ole slot machine. Whatever it is, I have to make sure I can move around in it alright so I'm able to gamble!!
By the way, I will be going Live on my regular Youtube Channel, but then I'm doing a SECOND live stream from my BRAND NEW LIVE CHANNEL!!
Be sure to SUBSCRIBE because we are going into the HIGH LIMIT ROOM baby!!
See you soon!!
