When we heard we were doing a story about Corset Piercing, a lot of squeamishness appeared on the faces of the crew.  No one was really up for seeing someone get 30 piercings in their back and have lace pulled through the rings.  It was going to be something! While interviewing Larry for his segment he was very candid about his tattoos and told me about how he not only tattooed his legs, but he tattooed his own penis. Hearing Larry’s story of tattooing his own genitals was hardly the most shocking thing that happened during our three-day shoot.  On the last day we followed Larry to tattoo parlor that his friend ran out of her house. After getting a few of the spots on his neck touched up Larry and Camille started talking about finishing the spots on Larry’s nose. Having worked in reality television for almost 15 years I thought I’ve seen and heard just about everything, until today.

Much of modern society today is operating with a complete disregard to the laws of nature, and it is by no means the master of those universal laws. Instead of learning from those universal natural laws, which have shaped the universe around us over the millennium, some of society stupidly seeks to cheat those laws at every opportunity. Initially, I was encouraged and thought that reality TV could become a teaching tool for survivalists and Preppers, which is one of the reasons why I appeared on National Geographic’s Doomsday Preppers.
However my opinion is now beginning to morph as a result of the recent National Geographic reality TV show titled ‘Doomsday Castle’, which is premised on the concept of using a so-called ‘castle’ as a means of post apocalyptic long-term survival. As some National Geographic Doomsday Preppers viewers may recall, the same people and ‘castle’ that are now featured in Doomsday Castle were previously featured in season-2 episode-8 of the Doomsday Preppers series (‘No Such Thing As A Fair Fight’). Season-two of National Geographic’s Doomsday Preppers covered the survival paradigms of 43 different Preppers, including the castle people, who were given a score of ‘68’ by Practical Preppers, LLC, which put them in 19th place in a field of 43 Preppers. Having been through the entire process myself, coupled with my background in long-term survival and disaster preparedness, I find myself in a position to offer some insights and critiques on the Doomsday shows, which some other writers cannot possibly have. Of course with the media-driven onslaught of these various risks as they apply to personal safety, a market has arisen for the equipment and know-how in survival-preparing and dealing with risks ranging from common accidents, such as lacerations, broken bones, heart attack and downing; to fires, earthquakes, tornadoes and hurricanes. When it comes to large-scale disasters, the vast majority of citizens will find themselves on their own, and some people realize this truth after a bit of due diligence using reliable sources. So with these understandings, it’s clear that we are possibly faced with increased levels of personal risk, that logically require some measured and proportionate levels of training and preparedness, which is why disaster preparedness TV shows are suddenly relevant, and may even be a good idea, if they teach legitimately effective measures and concepts.
In the case of the Reality TV show ‘Doomsday Castle’; for openers, the castle that is highlighted isn’t even a ‘castle’ in the traditional sense. The walls on the so-called ‘castle’ on the Reality TV show Doomsday Castle are a mere 12 inches thick, which to those of us with any engineering backgrounds know can be easily breached by ramming a truck through the wall, which would likely bring the adjacent wall down in the area of the impact. So when a Realty TV personality tells the public that a 12-inch concrete wall is adequate as a primary defensive wall on a fixed-location facility that is engulfed in a large-scale disaster that is defending against thousands of potential aggressors over time, that statement is in my opinion misinforming the public. I recall watching an episode where Bear Grylls squeezed the liquid out of some elephant dung, claiming that it was a solution to dehydration in an emergency. So as we see, these reality TV shows are less about ‘reality’ and ‘edutainment’ and more about mindless television entertainment (sit back and ‘zone-out’).
Programming producers today look to add characteristics (and ‘characters’), action, drama and sex appeal to reality TV so they can attract large audiences with as much range in viewer demographics as possible within the genre, which in turn attracts a host of advertisers and that of course makes money.

Clearly the ideal programming mix is a tall order for even the most talented producers, and it sometimes fails in one episode and succeeds in another when it involves a series of episodes, such as in National Geographic’s Doomsday Preppers, where the depicted survival methodologies ranged from the obtuse to the actionable. When I saw the young lady with the bow and arrow on Doomsday Castle, I couldn’t help thinking it was a Hunger Games knock-off.
However, these same things may not be very interesting to some audiences who may simply tune-in hoping see certain family members and the drama related to family dynamics. And the worst part, I think, is that some of the lesser experienced audience may embrace and incorporate some of the obtuse ideas and methods that are being depicted and portrayed in Doomsday Castle into their own preparedness methods and plans. We need to keep in mind that prepping and survival is not a popularity contest, or a game show where you get another chance; death doesn’t care who you are! As Albert Einstein said: “What is right is not always popular, and what is popular is not always right”.
Home to towering cliffs, jagged ridges, deep valleys, and crystal clear lakes, Glacier National Park was named for the glaciers that sculpted the park millions of years ago.
The tip of Larry’s nose was one of the few spots on Larry’s body that had never been tattooed. Next thing you know Larry picks up the tattoo gun and starts tattooing his own face in the mirror. The Secret Life of Predators, Hosted by Naturalist and Big Cat Tracker Boone Smith, goes into the perilous — but rarely seen — world of deadly hunters. Some are easy to recognize, and some you would never even suspect, but every one of them must strategize, improvise, and specialize in order to survive. The very best wildlife cameramen and crews traveled to 18 countries, immersing themselves in 12 different habitats to capture extraordinary natural history footage and never-before-seen animal behaviors.
Before they were ready to hatch, these miniscule tadpoles broke out of their eggs to seek safety from a giant wasp attack. Super-slow-motion cameras capture the deadly claw strike of a small but mighty peacock mantis shrimp. I like the narration…He is reading what Nat Geo has wrote and asked him to read (not his words) Not to mention it is nice to learn about what the show has to offer from a real outdoors man instead of a Hollywood actor reading what would be the same words. Our family has been mesmerized by all the animals from all the different parts of the country.
Like that wolf trying to catch that rabbit and the so called veteran golden eagle which by the way was an immature bird with a camera strapped to its head. One simple lesson that stems from Darwin is this; the smart and the strong survive and the stupid and the weak perish. Some variations of these concepts are integrated into some Reality TV shows that market to the Prepper and Survivalist audiences.
Some potential issues are also related to the overpopulation of the planet coupled with serious societal and political problems. Of course the 12-inch-thick cement-filled cinderblock walls on the Doomsday Castle are no match for a .50 caliber rifle round, which will penetrate the wall. There are many other flaws with the Doomsday Castle survival model, both short and long term.
Sure, that might work in a situation where you only needed to live for a few hours longer, until a military EVAC unit arrived.
In the end, when you are trying to appeal to a very wide audience demographic, you can end up with content that is too diluted at every level.
Sure, the bow and arrow is ‘in-theme’ with the castle genre a few hundred years ago, but using a bow and arrow in the modern context of trying to defend any fixed-position from aggressors who are using firearms is just silly. Discovery Channel’s Orange County Choppers successfully capitalized on that paradigm for many seasons, and maybe Doomsday Castle can do the same? This means using a tripod to hold your camera perfectly still while the shutter is open, though you can sometimes find a solid surface to rest your camera on and trip the shutter with the camera’s self-timer.
With that being said NEVER EVER EVER would I subject myself to that pain in the tenderest part of the body. Larry and Camille thought this was the perfect time and they started debating about the size and placement of Larry’s new spots. Guided by naturalist and big cat tracker Boone Smith, Secret Life of Predators travels to the depths of the oceans, the high forests, the vast open land, and to the edge of the earth to capture every strike, chase, and kill. In the vast expanse of the African savanna, witness an incredibly rare act of kindness as one lioness helps an injured elder feed. The mostly widely distributed eagle in the world and they couldn’t even shoot one hunting in the wild.
Some people in society today have elected to pursue actions that are counter to the universal laws of nature, creating situations that are unbalancing themselves and the world around us; situations which are not sustainable in the long term. The show also seems focused on the study of people trying yet failing in their disaster preparedness and the family’s interactions in those endeavors. Of course some ‘doomsday predictions’ are little more than science-fiction, as in the walking dead (‘Zombies’), while a few are based in real science (EMP attack, Geomagnetic Storm, Computer Hacking of the Energy Grid, etc.).

Near the end of the video below, you will see a USMC sniper make a shot through a solid cement block wall from a mile out, killing the aggressor! In the final analysis, this so-called ‘castle’ is in reality little more than a commercial building that has the facade of a castle.
And it also works on TV since there is a medical doctor nearby with the various drugs that you would require to combat all the parasites, viruses and bacteria that are likely contained in such an unsavory solution. Maybe the trick is to focus a bit more, and make sure that whatever is depicted is legitimate and the techniques depicted will work in the given scenario, even if the scenario is staged.
From my chair, Orange County Choppers did it best because in addition to showing a lot of cool custom motorcycles, they showed a lot of hands-on motorcycle building techniques and mechanics along with the family-drama; they had the right balance.
Simpson, disaster preparedness, Doomsday Castle, EMP, National Geographic Doomsday Castle, Prepper, prepper news, Prepper Press Releases, Preppers, survival by William Simpson. There is not a lot of information on the internet and most of the information about the religion rest in blog sites and discussion forums. Traveling across the globe to some of the world’s most unforgiving places including Africa’s savanna, Indonesia’s tropical reefs, Central America’s rainforest, and India’s dry forest, see the world through the eyes of a predator. Beneath the icy waves of Alaska’s Aleutian Islands, filmmakers documented killer whales performing a unique hunting technique that scientists didn’t know even existed … until now. When it comes to educating the public with regard to survival and disaster preparedness, realty TV shows in that genre are, in my opinion, starting to fail in the mission of educating audiences. Sadly the show fails to teach or highlight methods that would work under the conditions of an actual large-scale disaster, which is why you’d even want to consider such a large fixed defensive structure in the first place.
In a real off-the-grid survival situation, where you are actually ‘on your own’, such a solution to dehydration might allow you to live long enough to perish from dehydration due to dysentery and or a bacterial infection.
However, this would require the participation of expert advisors on-set, and that costs money.
Contrast that to a skilled hunter with a powerful compound bow who is only effective out to 50 yards…and then there’s the cyclic rate of a semi-automatic rifle compared to a bow… talk about a miss-match. I fear that Doomsday Castle is far to unrealistic to be considered legitimate by knowledgeable Preppers and survivalists, so they will likely lose much of that audience if the episodes continue as they have begun.

And as for this boon character well if he wants to put his name to gimmicks like this enough said, get a grip nat geo Attenborough would be ashamed.
Entertainment is a transient value to audiences, however the educational aspects (if any) of a show can provide long-term value to audiences. From my chair, Doomsday Castle instead focuses more on the interpersonal family dynamics, and creates a show more along the lines of a ‘doomsday soap opera’.
I found that most of the members formally belonged to other religions in the past and brought some of the values of that religion to the Church of Body Mod. So far, the show seems to appeal in large part to teenagers and young adults by the looks of their fan page on twitter (#doomsdaycastle); basically people with the least amount of experience in disaster preparedness and survival. Simpson has successfully survived long-term ‘off the grid’ at sea and at remote uninhabited desert islands with his family for years at a time.
With the influence of all religions coming into play it seems as though they use what they can to be as happy and positive as possible.
The body modification part of it serves as ritual and helps the individual get closer to a higher power.
Simpson appeared on National Geographic's hit TV show DoomsDay Preppers (Season-2 'A Fortress At Sea') and received the highest score ever given for disaster preparedness and survival, earning the title of 'Best Prepper’.
All in all there is still a lot up for debate but at the end of the day if it makes them happy I feel they should keep doing whatever they want to get to where they want to be.
