Advice No One Asked For – Number Eight

Posted in Supplements with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 4, 2011 by adoseofbuckley

What other websites are really updating on the long weekend? NONE OF THEM! That’s who! Buckley however doesn’t really observe July 4th (seeing as I’m a Canadian and all), so I figured why not give my American fans something to do besides get drunk and shoot roman candles at each other (you can do that later tonight).

This week at A Dose of Buckley, it’s the 8th installment of “Advice No One Asked For”. I try and help a woman choose sides in an issue that I didn’t even know still existed past 1972.

Hey, you know there’s a whole website full of this stuff, right? Check it out at A Dose of Buckley

Advice No One Asked For – Number Seven

Posted in Supplements with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 17, 2011 by adoseofbuckley

A favourite segment of mine returns to A Dose of Buckley this week, it’s “Advice No One Asked For”! Really not sure why I stopped doing these… I always enjoy helping people, especially those that don’t want to be helped by me!

This time around, I help a guy who’s suffering from a case of mistaken sexuality. How can he overcome the fact that women think he’s gay? Click the video below and find out!

How NOT to Get a Job in Radio – #2

Posted in Supplements with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 19, 2010 by adoseofbuckley

Most people who will read this know the story by now, but for those who are checking out my work for the first time, here’s the abridged version: Milkman Unlimited, Canada’s top resource for the radio industry, allows visitors to post a short blurb advertising themselves as available to work in the radio broadcast business. A lot of them are good, but some of them are absolutely terrible. So, I get the idea to create a presentation using the terrible ads as examples. “How NOT to Get a Job in Radio” was born.

After links to the original video were posted on Milkman’s website, the RadioWest message board, and all over Facebook, I started getting e-mails asking when I’d make another one. So, here it is – another video explaining the things to avoid when presenting yourself to a potential new employer. This is “How NOT to Get a Job in Radio Part 2”

Advice No One Asked For – Number Six

Posted in Supplements with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 8, 2010 by adoseofbuckley

After a pretty slow May (only two updates), I’m hoping to get back on track in June with more Dose of Buckley’s and Supplements.

This week, I bring back another favourite supplement of mine, “Advice No One Asked For”! In this, the sixth edition of the feature, I help out parents with mooching children, whether they want me to or not (and chances are, they’d rather I didn’t). If you have kids who leech off you, you may find this advice helpful. If you’re someone who leeches off your parents… you may want to make sure they don’t hear this (hopefully you haven’t already shown them how to use the internet).

Editions 1-5, as well as over an hour’s worth of dark and angry humour can be found, as always, at my website, A Dose of Buckley

Advice No One Asked For – Number Five

Posted in Supplements with tags , , , , , , , , , on April 21, 2010 by adoseofbuckley

I’ve only done five of these, but I think it’s safe to say each one is among the best pieces of content on my site (like that’s a difficult ranking).

It’s Advice No One Asked For! If you haven’t heard these segments before, basically I find some dumb question that someone asked to some dumber advice columnist, and answer it myself because quite frankly, these advice columnists are just not giving these people the answers they need to hear.

This edition, I help a woman who’s struggling with a moral dilemma. Does she let anyone else know the information she has on another woman she knows? Listen for my take on it:

Advice No One Asked For – Number Four

Originally posted at A Dose of Buckley on March 2, 2010.

I love helping people… even if they don’t like to be helped. That’s why I started the “Advice No One Asked For” series. So far, I don’t think I’ve even got a single thank you… not one. Oh well, being an unwelcome advice guru is hard, thankless work.

This week’s Advice No One Asked For, I help out a young man who needs to make a tough decision regarding him and his girlfriend. Or maybe I’m helping out the girlfriend… I don’t know, listen for yourself.
