Viva La Bam

Starring Bam Margera, April Margera, Phil Margera, Ryan Dunn, Raab Himself, Tim Blomb, Brandon DiCamillo, Rake Yohn and Don Vito. On MTV

This is Bam who began skating and hurting himself in Johnny Knoxsville’s Jackass and now has his own show doing various silly stunts and winding up his parents.

To be honest, I have just finished watching season 5 (and the last) Viva La Bam from America, but I think the 4th one is being shown at the moment – the one where they go round several other countries. Although it’s still worth watching, this season is no where near as funny or as shocking as previous shows. And as each one goes on, it becomes more and more obvious that the bit they show at the beginning as their “spontanious idea” was clearly filmed after it had all happened.

Well season 5 isn’t much better when it comes to that sort of thing and I am very suspicous about which bits were set up and which bits the family are just acting for the cameras and sometimes it’s just obvious. Throughout this series I definitely laughed a lot more than I did in 4 – so if you’ve been put off by the one you’re watching now – don’t give up on the next one, it is much better. Unfortunately they still include Don Vito in several stunts ( I really really don’t find him amusing in the slightest) but there is less of him, which is good. It was also clear that by the end they were starting to run out of ideas. “I know, lets have another war” and “I know, lets invite our rock star friend to join us and conveniently fill an episode”.

But despite Bam loving himself more and more, the stuff he gets up to is very funny and worth watching.

Monthly Memoir – July
July 31, 2016
The whole of July was pretty much about our holiday in America. The few days before we left were spent frantically researching where we were going, and the few days after were spent unpacking, washing, and trying to get over jet-lag. We had three weeks away and began in New York, getting the AmTrack train down to Washington DC, picking up a hire car and driving to New Orleans via Nashville and Memphis, and then following the coast East to Orlando to spend the last couple of days in Disney’s Magic Kingdom and Universal Studios. Wow! I’m exhausted just remembering it! We covered ten states of America (New York, New Jersey, District of Columbia, Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and Florida.) Phew! ….
mail order dog food review
Yes, this is a blog post about dog food! Natural grain-free food and treats from an online pet shop.

Loki has become the star of the show in several of my YouTube videos. He also commands attention whenever we take him anywhere; we love him to bits, but he can also be a bit embarrassing! He slobbers on everyone; bumps into them; accidentally knocks small children over and even when we meet people who are perfectly fine with all that, he will never take a treat from them. When family buy him expensive treats at Christmas, they’re lucky if they get a sniff. Even at the Pylle Happy Landings dog show, he wouldn’t take the free samples of handmade dog treats offered to him. He just isn’t interested. As a puppy we had to train him with cheap sausages and pieces of cheese – not the easiest of foodstuffs to take about with you. So when PetShop sent me a box of dog goodies to review, I didn’t hold out much hope….
