Heading to film this week's episode of @theandyshowtv with @flandangerous @fatpogarty and a special guest! Any requests? By requests I mean things you'd like to hear Joe sing in his Robert Goulet voice obviously. Let me know. 💀🖤
Hello everyone, I hope you're having a great week so far. I wanted to talk to you about something we all experience daily and something that has driven me and many of my contemporaries away from the connectivity and use of social media. Trolling, Baiting and ultimately Blocking. Now, many of you know that there is a large element of the online community that thrives entirely on negativity and trying to goad others into reactions. Accounts with this intention often say something awful followed by "block me" as a way of receiving validation of their rudeness from the party they are attacking. This isn't an isolated concept in human life but is increasingly more prevalent on social media sites that we all use daily. I have been attacked as has my wife and even my parents and family by many of these "fan" accounts without regard for the actual human hurt that it may elicit and in response I have done the thing we are all used to doing, I "blocked" them and moved on with my day however as time goes on I found myself having less and less interest in even signing ON to social media as the daily activity of reading some aggressive and upsetting diatribe about my life as they perceive it or my family and then hitting that "block" button has become too tedious. By the fall of 2016 I no longer even was signed into IG on my phone. I've been thinking a lot about this and PLEASE understand this isn't meant as me preaching to you to "unblock everybody" because if someone is hurting and attacking you you need to do what you see fit to escape their derision and I UNDERSTAND the concept of blocking someone who is causing you harm in any capacity BUT I want to try something. I want to come back to social media, I want to trust you again. I want to be friends again like we used to be. I want to know that you won't come here to hurt me and I want YOU to know that I won't hurt you. I want our army and our family to be connected in humanity and love. So, having said all of that I have unblocked every account from my social media, I am laying it all out there. I want to come back here and post and be active and connect with you guys. I'm giving you my trust🖤
I want to say an emphatic and sincere THANK YOU to all of you who have been sharing my previous post to #endpuppymills and for the @humanesociety it's absolutely incredible how many of you guys have helped spread the word this evening! You are the best! I will continue to follow as many of the accounts that repost the HS image and tag me in it as I can up until midnight PST but once again THANK YOU for all that you guys do to help bring about a better future for animals everywhere❤️ photo by @joshuashultz makeup/hair @nikkinouvelle @vtgesther
Hello friends, as you know I am passionate about animal welfare and do my best to promote positive and helpful animal advocacy groups such as the @humanesociety on my social media accounts. In the spirit of this and in attempt to not only hopefully further raise awareness but to connect with YOU guys on a closer level, I am going to try to follow back anyone who re-posts this image and tags me in it this evening (I will follow every one that I see and hope not to miss any throughout the night of May 20th, UPDATE: due to the large number of reposts it's become difficult for me to see each post to follow, however I am doing my best and will continue to follow all that I see tonight. Thank you so much for this guys you're incredible). I would love to see stories about how your pets have had a positive impact on your life and for all of us to help spread the word about ending the cruel practice of puppy mills. I am not in any way affiliated with the humane society but this cause is one that is very important to me and it would mean the world to me if you guys could go to the link in my bio and sign the pledge to help put an end to puppy mills. My wife and I are very fortunate to have adopted an incredible and brave dog named Daredevil who was born blind as is often the case with overbreeding etc. he is a massive light in our life and means everything to us! We want more dogs like daredevil to get loving forever homes and I hope that advocating for adoption rather than this manner of breeding will help that make hope a reality! Thanks! -Andy

One of my favorite photos from the shoot that @thejulietsimms and I did with @joshuashultz last week! We always have so much fun working with Josh and I'm thrilled with the photos! On a different note I wanted to let everyone know that there won't be a new @theandyshowtv minisode or movie review this week on YT but Patreon users will have a full length show. Don't worry we will be back next week with all new stupidity and children's games! I promise! 😂 hair&makeup for shoot: @nikkinouvelle @vtgesther
Here is a photo from last week by the incredible @joshuashultz 💀 🖤 I hope everyone is having a great weekend! I wanted to catch you guys up on a few things! First up a huge thank you for everyone who has voted for WDHTD and #TheShadowSide for the 2017 #APMAS song and album of the year! Yesterday was the one year anniversary of the records release and I can't emphasize enough how special you guys have made this whole experience for me, this touring cycle has been one of the greatest musical experiences of my life and career! I can't wait to see so many of you at @vanswarpedtour this summer! For those asking I have added more @thinktei classes to the list so be sure to head to their website to sign up for a class in your area! There is so much coming in the next few months that I can't wait to share with you guys but for now I wanted to once again say thank you for your support and love and for being so amazing! PS it's now been well over a year since I last had a sip of alcohol and I feel incredible. My whole life has changed since I eliminated booze, meat and unhealthy behaviors and habits from it (working on the cigarettes🤷🏻♂️). I want to be the person I always wished to be and I'm working hard one day at a time to achieve that! Stay happy, stay healthy! Take care of yourself, be kind to each other and fuck social conventions....do what makes YOU feel right👊🏻 -------hair/grooming by @vtgesther @nikkinouvelle

One year ago my best friend and I were married at an incredible ceremony with our family and friends on a beautiful southern California evening. Today, as I think back on the wedding and the subsequent year that has followed I am filled with joy and excitement. When @thejulietsimms and I started dating I would fall asleep each night in my bunk rolling along america's highways on the bus listening to her "The Kids Will Take Their Monsters On" album and I learned every word and nuance. This is a vivid memory I have that colors each moment thereafter. The songs on that album became a soundtrack that weaves its way around our romantic history in my mind...the beautiful, the heartfelt, the dark and the glowing light. I still listen to those songs today and think back on all that occurred to build our roots and cement our eternal bond. A young rock and roll relationship isn't an easy one to navigate and while I know we have always loved one another I also know there are moments that challenged our core and in the end ultimately strengthened our love tenfold. I am a better man today than I once was and I hope tomorrow to be even better still. None of that is possible without my love, Juliet. When you have someone who is your world, you don't back down to challenges and you push yourself to become greater because you want to give your partner the best of your heart, mind and spirit. On this day as we reflect and enjoy our life together I want to wish all of YOU the chance to find your true love. An endless love. Forever.❤️ Happy anniversary honey. "..you must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you"

This month @theandyshowtv will be donating to The Humane Society International in an effort to aid them in their fight to stop the cruel annual seal hunt. I understand that many people fall on different sides of this issue but I can only speak to my own perspective which is one of interest in animal welfare and compassion. I am not perfect, I am not trying to preach I am simply sharing with you something that means a lot to me and if you feel similarly I would ask that you donate whatever you can or help spread the word about the efforts of organizations like the HS and HSI to put a stop to this brutal annual slaughter. I have no affiliation with The Humane Society, I simply feel it's important to share this with you all and hope that it strikes a chord in you to help raise awareness. I have changed the link in my bio to the HSI link for those who are interested in donation and wanting to learn more about animal welfare and protection. Thank you.
