This video is strangely captivating. Ironically, it may help delay the inevitable, in that some people might start to follow his channel. However, it is clear that, at some point he will have to sell that large house he lives in. He also needs to start taking better care of his body. Why the heck is he still eating fast food everyday and drinking soda pop?

As for his girlfriend, she is a good woman. But clearly she has her own problems. Her lack of a father figure growing up seems to be at the root of what she is doing. Perhaps there are other issues also that we are not privy to.

Boogie needs to accept that he is never again going to reach the heights of popularity that he once did. Times have changed. As long as he doesn't, he's just like a gambler who keeps sinking more money into his bets, hoping for that one big payoff that's going to fix everything.
