The show is also available on Freeform, which is available the next day on Hulu and Disney+ for streaming sites to watch replays.

    Annie Murphy plays a New York fashionista who takes over as spiritual head of her father’s rural Southern cult in the series. She had everything she desired in her life back in New York City, where she liked coffee, therapy, jaywalking to museums, subway rides, and in particular Broadway performances. Petey worked as a Senior Assistant Editoral Assistant at Fashiona, a fashion magazine firm, for 8 years. Because of her lack of self-confidence, she frequently feels afraid to speak up. She had a wood plank of her fiancé Brian. The next day, she went to her White St. Barts Office to view a video footage of her late father explaining how he used to raise New Utopia which was actually in North Carolina. She was captivated by her father’s movie about fresh blood entering New Utopia, until one night she was with her BFF at her apartment and discovered that Brian had cheated on her. She felt betrayed and sobbed outside her apartment till her boss phoned and informed her that she had been demoted for irrelevant work behavior pointed out at a meeting especially the shimmy under her breath. After discovering that her apartment had caught fire, she ordered a Cab to the South and exclaimed, “Taxi to the South!” which makes sense given the title of the first episode of the series.

    She finally got the bus to New Utopia. By the time she arrived, animals had also gotten from the bus, been kicked by a goat, and landed in the dirt. Her belongings were caked in muck, which irritated her. When Bandit arrived in his pickup truck, she discovered that he’s a good-looking redneck. Bandit urged her to leave town, which Petey believe proved unfair considering her father had devastated the community before she arrived. Petey was outraged because he believed she was going to wreck the town and wanted to manage it her way in order to reform it for the betterment of society. She was afraid since there was a gator in her father’s village, but she swiftly grabbed him and pulled her out of the mud. So Bandit was kind enough to drive her to New Utopia, but he forced her pull the luggage while driving his truck next to her. Eventually, the one who lights the torch to let everyone know that Petey has arrived in New Utopia. The entire community supported her efforts to make her feel like southern hospitality. She was about instruct Bandit how it works, but he drove away and scoffed at at him. When she arrived to the New Utopia Inn, she introduced Mae Mae, her father’s right hand till his death. When she arrived to the New Utopia Inn, she introduced Mae Mae, her father’s right hand till his death. Mae Mae reluctantly requested Emmett to mend her broken shoe as Petey went to her father’s room to take a shower. There was a group of ladies who bathed with her while humming, but she was perplexed because it wasn’t the most unusual shower she’d ever had. Mae Mae surprised her after a shower, which Petey was expecting to swing by for a drink, and she ended up going to The Filthy Pecker, New Utopia’s Hottest Bar in town.

    By the time she arrived, she had been introduced by Alan Tudyk, a local star who showed her everyone in the bar but pointed out that they needed young people and booze, which would work well for her plan. Then she noticed Bandit was at the bar and wanted to insult him about being friendly to old ladies but unpleasant to her. Bandit saw Petey was wearing a neckless with a belly chain, which reluctant him, but he ultimately moved away from her. Petey soon chose to sit at the bar and have a drink with Eliza, the waitress at the bar. They both discuss Bandit, their recent relationship breakups, and their favorite television program, Post Trauma and Kissing. Their friendship has bonded, although Eliza has been running the bar for a year and has liked working as a bartender. She wanted to tell Eliza that she wanted to take over her late father’s village from 20 years ago and refurbish it in her own manner. After a pleasant conversation, Petey agreed to try pool darts with Bandit and place a wager on a match. Petey had dominated the battle and had her first kiss with Bandit, for which the entire crowd at the bar shouted and celebrated. Until Bandit intervened, which he couldn’t do since her father operated a cult, which was the primary reason why Bandit wanted her to leave. She told him that she wanted to help restore the community. The floor opened up as soon as she exclaimed Fresh blood to witness Alan Tudyk get slain by the Cult, which the entire town applauded to death, and Petey freaked out and bolted out of the pub. The cult was a typical method to welcome Petey’s homecoming, something she had not anticipated.

    When she left the bar, it was too much for her and she puked outside till Mae Mae informed Petey about her first cult routine. That killing a celebrity was a ritual for the night Petey came to town enraged Petey, who wanted to go back home to New York and get her shoes back, but it wasn’t done. She attempted to hail a cab, but there were no taxis available in New Utopia. Eventually, Emmett hands Petey the TV/VCR to demonstrate how her father became terrified after viewing her human sacrifice, even the most odd event in existence. Most importantly, she had the option of remaining in New Utopia and assisting the community, which she was beginning to see may make a difference. After seeing the video, she was still outraged over her father’s cult, which Mae Mae conveyed to her about the cult she had in New York. Deep down, she was dealing with her own difficulties of hiding her feelings in order to avoid being overwhelmed or ashamed, which her terrible luck in New York didn’t help much with on her first night in New Utopia, she realized that her life in New York was a greater cult than her new village. Mae Mae informed her that she could either go back home and murmur herself behind her chain, or she could come up with brilliant ideas and utilize her voice to communicate her alternatives in New Utopia. Petey acknowledges that can contribute excellent ideas and utilize her voice to empower young people. Mae Mae wanted to show her that a young person can run a city and make excellent decisions. Finally, she wanted to give herself another opportunity to stay in New Utopia. The next day, Petey was all dressed up in a floral manner for a ceremony to be hailed as the great daughter, and the entire community said “Praise Petey” to express their warm welcome. The men in red vests informed her about the reforms in New Utopia, to which she answered, “no more human sacrifice and wear jumpsuits over kaftans.” It all ended happily, with Petey taking over the cult and making positive reforms, as the entire village took her to the streets of New Utopia for a moment of joy. Everyone had an opinion about Petey’s time in her new community. Finally, Petey realizes she is a new cult leader, which has elicited varied emotions, and she is eager to step up and make positive changes. She has the opportunity to learn more about her father and what life was like when he used to rule the town in his formative years. She also identified several celebrities who might join a cult, such as Frankie Jonas, Frankie Grande, or a random Freeform personality.

    Petey herself had wished to improve New Utopia by enacting new changes and wanting to bring in new events and discoveries to the village that contemporary society would operate like fresh job opportunities and creativity for new ideas. As Petey comes to terms with the fact that she is a cult leader, the adventure for Petey and her companions in their community has never stopped. Observing some weird occurrences in town for the sake of the town or a regular event that appears for some reason.

    Her fashion of life is helping the city to be more creative and exciting for new adventures along new characters that would also appear in New Utopia especially interesting stories about her father when he used to take over the town and other people that grew up with her dad.

  • The Lionesses played all three rounds of Group D and won all three matches against Haiti, Denmark, and China. Coach Sabrina Weigman of England currently hopes that the Lionesses will win in order to be eligible to the World Cup and demonstrate to the world that women can be as dominating as men’s teams.

England took a corner kick in the 28th minute, but the Nigerian defense saved it, preventing England from scoring. Rachel Daly was ready to receive the ball when it was shoved, and the referee had a superb eye for an England penalty. Nigeria, on the other hand, had additional options for asking the referee to double-check the foul, which was reviewed and checked out of VAR to see whether there was a foul. It turned out that it was used before it was pushed, but it backfired on the foul, revealing that there was no penalty, which incensed England. Following that, Stanway sent the ball to Lucy Bronze, who played it to Lauren James, and the goalkeeper was able to save England’s corner kick. England got the corner in the 40th minute, but James kicked it above the goal line from the same location.

The two European Championship players who scored, Ella Toone and Chloe Kelly, were substituted on in the 88th minute to offer England hope. England fought everything they could to stay alive, and the match ended 0-0, sending them to extra time and maybe a penalty shootout if the outcome remained the same.

    The Lionesses were keen to prevail so they could go to the Quarterfinals, where they would face the Falcons in a tight encounter. England is still seeking for a spectacular glory, but they must play wisely in order to advance to the Quarterfinals. To achieve a successful performance, the squad must tighten possession and play as a unit. In extra time, both teams had a great chance to break through the tie, and there could only be one winner. At the 98th minute, Nigeria’s Michelle Alozie almost scored but couldn’t get her left foot in the goal.During the final few minutes of the first extra time, Nigeria grabbed control of the ball, while England appeared exhausted and hoped for further success.

Extra time has ended, and both sides will now compete in a penalty shootout.

    During the Penalty Shootout, it is determined that England and Nigeria will have to go to sudden death to see which side can win the match; this is the FIFA Women’s World Cup’s second penalty shootout since USA vs Sweden took a mighty victory to crush the American Dream of getting another repeat. It all began in England. Georgia Stanway, but she missed the far left goal. When Nigerian Desire Oparnozie attempted the penalty kick, it was unsuccessful in the same manner. Bethany England went up and scored the goal, maintaining her perfect career record in all penalty shootouts. Mary Herps desires to save England, but Michelle Alozie of Nigeria booted it too high, giving England belief. Rachel Daly rose up and kicked it inside the top left corner of the goal post, giving England a better chance of winning the penalty shootout. Rasheedat Ajiibade of Nigeria was fortunate just to score when she took the kick. By the time Alex Greenwood of England stepped up to take the penalty shot, the ball had already gone inside the right goal post. When Nigeria’s Christy Ucheibe scored a penalty kick, Herp did not move. When it was Chloe Kelly’s time, it was established that she assisted England in winning the European Championship, that she scored a penalty winner in the 2023 Women’s Finalissima against Brazil, and that she now has the chance to win it in the Round of 16 Penalty Shootout. Kelly scored by kicking the ball, giving England a courageous win in the first knockout match of the Round of 16.

    Both England and Nigeria huddled up and give handshakes for a really good performance. Others got upset and cheered them up that the team has played their best which it shows heroism and dedication of their positive spirit to teach young girls could play soccer in future generations to show what a soccer match should really mean to give credit. Although England had struggled to keep possession of the ball and lack of scoring opportunities which they didn’t use enough confidence to keep the match alive, but the team was lucky enough to move on the next round. The Lionesses will now face either Columbia or Jamaica in the quarterfinals.

    Even though Nigeria was very strong throughout the match, the Lionesses had their finest effort. They must now concentrate on the pressure, even if they begin to fall short on their most successful players, in order to desire the performance and reclaim their clever moves.

  • When my twin brother Ryan and I were born prematurely both of us were 3 lbs and over two months early. I was diagnosed with moderate Cerebral Palsy (CP) at birth. Which means I have a brain hemorrhage in a very rare spot. My Cerebral Palsy affects my entire right side. When I was 22 years old I was diagnosed with Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS). POTS means my heart rate goes very high and if I stand up or change positions too fast I pass out and my blood pressure goes very low. My Cerebral Palsy makes my POTS even more challenging. When I was 24 years old I was diagnosed with Epilepsy. Epilepsy (seizures) my Epilepsy spot is right next to my brain hemorrhage. Which makes my Epilepsy even more challenging. On top of me having Cerebral Palsy and Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome. I have to carry my emergency seizure medicine and wear my Apple Watch at all times. My medical team at (St. Charles Hospital) is amazing. They go above and beyond for me. I don’t know where I would be with them. At every stage of my life, I learn and accept that my life is harder than typical people’s before all of my diagnoses. But that doesn’t stop me. Even with all of my diagnoses I’m still not letting them hold me back from what I do with my life.

     

    2 Education/Molly: All of my schooling was very challenging but I did it. Thank God that Individualized Education (IEP) was so detailed and grew with me. From Elementary school to College, I had to work twice as hard as my peers because of all of my learning disabilities as well as my diagnoses. Resource room teachers from Elementary school to High school were great at realizing that I was having trouble and trying to find a solution. I would always ask the teacher if I was having trouble or if they could tell me facial expressions. As I entered Junior school and High school the material got because I was in Regents level classes. Which meant more homework and tests. My stress levels increased. But they were almost therapists to me because they would try to find a solution. If that didn’t work they would have a meeting with my teacher. Between myself, my resource room teacher, and my class teacher we would usually find a solution or have extra accommodation for that class. By Senior year my IEP was the size of a textbook with all of my accommodations. Once I entered College for my Bachelor’s Degree I had to find a College that had a great disability program. If they didn’t have that program I wouldn’t succeed. If I had a problem with a teacher, even after I asked the teacher. They would tell the teacher and help to find a solution. I even had a guidance counselor (Leighann) that was my lifeline. I would email her every day, and I would have a weekly meeting with her. If I didn’t have I didn’t her wouldn’t have been successful. When I got my Master’s Degree my College also had a great disability program and my teachers would email me, to see if I was having any problems with the material. From Elementary school to graduating with my Master’s Degree I went to a lot of tutoring and extra help sessions to better understand the material. Since graduating with my Master’s Degree it’s been very difficult for me to find a job with all of my diagnoses. I’m currently trying to get a job with the government in healthcare administration and leadership, that’s what my degrees are. When I was in College I was suicidal from all of the homework, tests, and stress. My therapist told me to bond with my rescue dog, Molly, which helped a ton. Without bonding with her. There’s no doubt in my mind, Coach Steve, Coach Bob, Chloe, Charmaine, Leighann, and my medical team’s minds that I wouldn’t be alive today. During this time I joined Rolling Thunder Special Needs Program Para-Athletics without the head Coaches Steve and Bob, Chloe and Charmaine watched out to see if I was displaying any suicidal signs during practice, road races, and track meets I joined this Track and Field Team help me feel included without any judgment because everyone understands what I was through. They listened to me and did everything I needed to still be alive. Even when Molly passed during the Coronavirus-19 Pandemic, everyone was there for them checking in on me to see if I was okay and not displaying any suicidal signs. Without all of these people and Molly, I would’ve committed suicide. That’s another of the many reasons why I’m so appreciative of these people because they didn’t have but they wanted to.

    3 Obstacles To Challenges /Training For Summer Paralympics Paris 2024/Field Hockey:

    I’ve had many obstacles in my life. My medical team, Physical Therapists, and Occupational Therapists have been there the whole time. They have helped me turn everyday life activities that were insanely hard for me that turned into challenges because It’s very hard for me to use my right limbs, right fingers, and right toes even though I was stubborn and didn’t want to do them. But I had to be able to function in activities of daily life and be a successful functional person in society. I had to be successful to meet every goal the way they wanted which was “the correct way” or I failed the goal and had to keep working on the goal. I tried to find a shortcut for every goal but it didn’t work whatsoever. Even though all of these goals were hard to meet, I am a successful functional person in society. Thanks to their great work and for handling my stubbornness.

    As for my training for The Summer Paralympic Games in Paris 2024 for Track and Field. My Track and Field Team is (Rolling Thunder Special Needs Program Para-Athletics) which is for disabled athletes, most of my teammates have Autism. The head coaches are Steve and Bob. There have been so many obstacles because of all of my diagnoses. Trying to figure out a way that I could successfully run without falling, passing out, or having a seizure. At every practice, I wear my helmet to help in case of emergency. But I didn’t give up and my coaches and pacers on my team didn’t either. Trying to successfully finish practice has also been an obstacle to my safety. I have to have modified practice, wear my helmet, have extra water breaks, and have to wear cooling towels when it’s hot out in case I have an emergency. Even use Quench Gum and Jelly Belly Sport Beans before and during every practice, road races, and track meet. To help me not have an emergency. All of my coaches and my pacers know my faces when I display those symptoms that I’m about to pass out or have a seizure. Another obstacle that turned into a challenge was running road

    races successfully and not falling, passing out, or having a seizure. When I run road races I have my two pacers (Chloe and Charmaine) with me. One pacer is in front of me watching it to see if there’s a curb, a pothole, or if the road is uneven. My other pacer is next to me. I have to wear my leg brace, water hydration backpack, and helmet. In case anything happens to me. As well, in case I have a seizure they were taught how to give me my emergency seizure medication. That was difficult to solve, especially for my safety. My two pacers are amazing for keeping me safe. Even during the road race, they will not tell me what mile we’re at. They will only look at my Apple Watch which displays my heart rate. They’re constantly looking at my face to see if I’m about to pass out or have a seizure. Because they know my faces when I display those symptoms.

     

    In terms of throwing the Shot Put and Discus that was a challenge trying to figure out how I would hold them and successfully throw them. My coaches and I figured out a way that works for me. As of writing, I’m on the Long Island Track and Field Team and the New York State Track and Field Team which I was surprised about. But it’s all because of my hard work. Of course, all my coaches go the extra mile. But didn’t any of these challenges stop me from quitting the team. I’m indebted to all of my coaches for them not giving up on me. I didn’t stop because it was an obstacle for me. All of these obstacles have helped me compete in track meets, most of them I’m competing against typical athletes.

     

    Specifically, Training for The Summer Paralympic Games in Paris 2024 for Track and Field has been a challenge because I have to put in a ton of more work at practice, during the Road Races, and I have extra workouts that my other teammates don’t have. I have to a Paralympic Standards for the Cerebral Palsy (CP) category to be considered to compete in The Summer Paralympic Games in Paris 2024. Those Paralympic Standards for 100 meters, 200 meters, and Shot Put are very challenging, especially having moderate Cerebral Palsy (CP) because of the modifications I had to figure out and master to try to meet those Paralympic Standards as of this moment I’m writing this am I very close of meeting those Paralympic Standards. Each of my coaches, my pacers, and my personal I’m so thankful for to have them in my life. I’m currently 0.10 seconds off of the CP Paralympic standard for the 100 meters dash. I’m currently 15 seconds off of the CP Paralympic standard for the 200 meters dash. I’m 1.22 meters off of the CP Paralympic standard for the Shot Put. I’m currently 9 meters off the CP Paralympic standard for Discus. Running my last 5K (3.1 miles) road race I got a Personal Record by over 4 minutes.

     

    I also have a personal trainer (Ryan) from (Whit Fit/Oompf Fit-Club) helping to increase my strength on both sides of my body. Helping me enhance my sprinting form. He has done the same thing with my Shot Put and Discus form. Having me practice these skills during every session. These sessions aren’t easy at all. But my favorite exercise is pulling the sled. As I’m writing this, the most weight I pulled on the sled is 315 lbs. My best pulling the sled while sprinting is 220 lbs. As of me writing this. Pulling the sled makes me so happy and my trainer knows it. But it’s super challenging especially since my Cerebral Palsy right side doesn’t work as well as my non-affected side in every exercise. Especially my Cerebral Palsy fingers because it’s hard to hold the grips on all of the machines that I have use special grips that I can hold on to while doing strength exercises. I have no control of my right fingers and my right toes due to my Cerebral Palsy right side while also using machines hard to use. My trainer has to do twice the amount of work trying to modify everything because of my Cerebral Palsy but he’s willing to do it for me to achieve my goals. Which he doesn’t have to do. Again he goes the extra mile which I’m thankful for.

    I also play Field Hockey for (Long Island Field Hockey on their Field Hockey 4 All Team). That’s been an obstacle as well trying to figure out how to hold the Field Hockey stick with only my left arm because I can’t grip the Field Hockey stick with my right arm. Figuring out how to hold the stick, hit the ball, and run at the same time was a challenge to master. I’m grateful to my head coaches (Danielle and Mallory) for helping me to figure out how to play the game safely. I also have to wear my leg brace, my helmet, and a sports sling on my right arm since I can’t hold the stick, during practices and tournaments. I also made the National Disabled Program Field Hockey Team. I was shocked that I made the team. But I didn’t give up and neither did they.

     

     

    Having relationships with everyone that I wrote about in these blogs have been there in the happy times in my life as well the dark times of life. They were all listening to me, and were willing to find a solution, all at the time being so supportive it’s not even funny. I know that no one of the people had to do that but they were happy to do it. I will have a relationship with them. I have no doubt they will do anything for me and that’s why they will have a special part in my heart. There’s no way I’ll ever be able to repay them. I’m so thankful and blessed beyond belief to have all of them in my life and will have a relationship with them for the rest of my life.

     

  • The tournament was hosted in Australia and New Zealand for the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup, and the competition began with England vs. Haiti. England was recognized as the 2022 Women’s European Champions, and one of their accomplishments was winning the World Cup. On the other side, the Haitian Women’s National Team made its World Cup debut in order to demonstrate their country that they can have a positive outlook despite coping with natural disasters in their home country, as well as to show fans that women can play soccer just as well as men. England’s first match was hosted in The Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane, Queensland. Coach Sabrina Wiegman, who previously coached the Netherlands to glory in the 2017 Women’s Euro Finals, is currently coaching England’s next generation of female footballers.

    The Lionesses started off with Chloe Kelly, who helped England achieve the European Championship last season. She got her time in the fourth minute and attempted to kick for distance, but Kerly Théus, the goaltender, saved it. Georgia Stanway had the opportunity to maintain the ball in midfield in the fifth minute although was unable to hold it off. Roselord Borgella of Haiti nearly scored the team’s inaugural goal in the 14th minute, but an enormous run caused her to kick it far right. Chloe Kelly attempted a cross-kick to Alessia Russo in the 21st minute, but the goaltender made a superb save.

    During the 25th minute, while England attempted a corner kick, the Lionesses were ready to take possession of the ball when Lucy Bronze signaled that Haiti had been caught for handball inside the penalty area. The referee conducted a review and it was judged a penalty, with Georgia Stanway taking charge of the penalty kick. After Georgia Stanway’s first penalty was saved, the referee determined that it appeared the defending goalkeeper had left her line earlier than expected which England are managed to retry their penalty kick. Stanway then returned to the same spot to give England a 1-0 lead. England is 13-2-0 in the Women’s World Cup when scoring first. The roaring crowd give the atmosphere their approval and viewed it as proof of their strength. Lucy Bronze offered it to Georgia Stanway, who immediately passed it to Alessia Russo and Lauren Hemp, who took an unexpected run to grab the goal, which ultimately was deflected by the goaltender. England believed throughout the final five minutes, including stoppage time, that Haiti had gained momentum on power until halftime. Because it was a competitive match throughout most of the time, the crowd cheered on both teams for showing spirit of the power of play.

    Melchine Dumornay of Haiti rushed the ball and carried out a strong kick in the 50th minute, and Mary Earps, England’s goalkeeper, managed to send it away and Keira Walsh capitalized to move outside of the goal zone. During the 58th minute, Ella Toone passed the ball to Alessia Russo, who took the run and Haiti’s defense took the ball and kicked it out of the zone, but England quickly came once more after 30 seconds with a chance from Russo, which Haiti encounters more power on using the ball to give England greater pressure. Stanway had a long pass kick to Russo in the 64th minute but sent it a little too high, which the goaltender stopped like a punt for volleyball. Kerly Théus began to become more dangerous at punting the ball about, which England was intent on capitalizing on for the purpose to get a second goal. Lucy Bronze delivered to Alex Greenwood in the 74th minute but kicked above the goalie, which Russo did not succeed to use the header in the vicinity of the goal. Her aggressive defense maintained everything compact for her teammates as they battled for survival. Chloe Kelly intended to utilize the ball in the 79th minute but intended to raise her hand for handball, therefore Lucy Bronze made the decision to loop the cross to Bethany England, who beat Théus but swiftly pulled away. When Kelly dribbled the ball and shifted around Théus in the 81st minute, Millie Bright provided it to Bronze, who subsequently gave it to Stanway. Nerillia Mondesir seized the ball and sprinted on the opposite side of the field shortly after, but Jess Carter guarded her as Roseline Eloissaint nearly equaled the match for Haiti before Earps made an exceptional save and punted it out. Daly came close to her chances of giving England the advantage when Kelly passed the ball around the outside of her cross in the 82nd minute. Throughout the whole match, England and Haiti engaged in continuous, intense contemplation. Finally, both teams committed several foolish fouls and a few injuries, which made the game extremely close overall. Haiti took a corner kick in the 91st minute, which Earps volleyed out and punched away. England responded forcefully, especially when Haiti kicked it out for a high ball. Haiti, on the other side, played really well for their first game even though the match finished with England winning 1-0, Haiti played really well in their debut match, but they were unable to overcome England, despite their excellent play.

    The Lionesses has played their performance despite that without their loyalists Beth Mead and Leah Williamson, England prevailed to secure out an exhausting victory over a feisty young Haitian squad. Its lone goal occurred upon a penalty kick in the first half. Sarina Wiegman, the team’s coach, has to figure out a method to get her team back on track after winning the Euros last year. Which England has to be more assertive in order to for her team to do well in the World Cup Knockoff Stage. However the Lionesses did well with a large crowd that did great on supporting them and showed their effort that women can play football or soccer as well. England kept their loyal spirit up and show the world that they want to be the best of Europe included the world to show their characteristics.

    Over the past few years, I have begun expanding my music palate through Spotify by discovering new artists that have their own styles and influences. Some of these artists are socially conscious, meaning they rap about contemporary issues and those that have occurred over many centuries and are still ongoing to this day. One of these artists is King Iso, who is signed to one of the biggest underground rap labels in the business, Strange Music, founded by legendary rapper Tech N9ne. Even though some of its biggest names like Krizz Kaliko and Stevie Stone have moved on to bigger things in this decade through founding their own labels or going independent, Iso has continued to interest fans with his emotional and resonant songs pertaining to his mental health struggles, depression, and suicidal tendencies and fast raps demonstrating his lyrical prowess. Some of these problems have even occurred as a result of his upbringing and fallouts with his previous label, Brainsick Music and its CEO, underground legendary “chopper” Twisted Insane.

    King Iso

    Currently, Iso is working on his third album, which pertains to struggles he has encountered within his family, such as his kids and his father leaving him. However, for his latest single, “Way You Are”, Iso communicates to the world about his son’s own autism, specifically ASD, and how autistic people are scrutinized by a problematic world. These problems are explained by the lines “Wrong’s what they might’ve been, they like “What he mean?”/ My kid’s three years old and it’s troubling to see them study him like they studied me/ Sensory overload when they missing their homies though and now they gotta do some other things” & “I don’t understand how they can judge a baby, maybe that ain’t it but that is what it seems/ Maybe it’s not the genes, always what we see”. These lines show how autistic people continued to be viewed as “outcasts” to society and frequently bullied. Iso always opens up about his OCD as seen in “They say you got OCD and the logic you need without structure can be hard times/They plead about your sensitivity, can’t be dirty, just clean, blocking out all the screams all night/Need a routine just to ease our mind but we about to go COD offline”.

    This song shows just how important neurodivergent are to society as they can help raise awareness with their abilities and special needs, despite them being “different”. Iso emphasizes this with “All I see is young kings and a bunch of queens who are just different and not battling a disease”. Iso says that autism and other neurodivergent disorders are not diseases and that they should be treated better than they normally are. Iso even has a video where his autistic son makes an appearance:

  • The 2 Teams that are currently in the Top 5 Ladder of the League so far this season. Both Melbourne Demons and the Brisbane Lions had a really strong which one of them is best for defense and the other is for offense.

The Lions took the lead 8.3 (51) to 8.4 (52) by a margin.

His style of power performance is like a rainmaker. The Demons almost got their interception but Zac Bailey quickly handed the ball to Charlie Cameron and made a sharp kick to get the goal. There was traffic congestion while getting the footy until Christian Petracca got the ball and kicked all the way.

    When the 4th Quarter started, the Demons were down by 20 points margin with the Lions having the lead with 15.7 (97) to 12.5 (77). Melbourne had to find new strategies to get themselves into a victory position.

    At the 2 minute warning, the Lions and Demons resumed the battle of getting the footy while both defenders took charge of it but Melbourne had more offense chances to keep the team going forward. Coach Chris Fagan of the Brisbane Lions was getting worried because the Lions ran out of confidence and kept their momentum going which the opportunity has faded away from the chance of lack of communication between players and the team itself. Coach Simon Goodwin of the Melbourne Demons had faith that the Dees could find some way to get the winning goal because of their power. The Lions and Melbourne has passed each other on interceptions until Deven Robertson kicked it out of bounds to give more pressure on the ball.

The Homestand went wild and the celebration was like a victory. After the celebration, both teams resumed the play and Melbourne won the ball which Viney did a giant kick 50 yards to Jacob Van Rooyen but let go of the ball while he tried to pass Melksham. The Brisbane Lions had one more chance to score the winning goal or a behind to tie the game. Ryan Lester tried to get the ball and tackle on the field but Christian Salem stopped the play and tackled Brisbane to avoid their winning triumph. In the final 12 seconds of the match, the Lions all teamed up to pass the ball and hoped the long kick would help them get a mark. The Key Defender Jake Lever intercepted the ball inside the 50 metre circle to avoid the kick after the siren which the Lions demanded a review which Melbourne got the ball first and the siren has alarmed that the match is over and the Demons took a victory by a margin. The Melbourne Fans were electrified with the result of the match and it was a great performance. The Demon Players ran into the field and give out hugs and celebrations around and it was one of the most memorable victories of the season and all around brought smiles for their tremendous achievements.

    Overall both teams played well but Melbourne was happy with the outcome of their match with a 1 point margin and Jake Melksham was the hero of the Demons. Coach was very pleased that the Demons had been given their courtesy in the final few minutes with the hard work and refused to let the Lions get the chance to take advantage which the buzzer didn’t do enough pass Melbourne for their victory. The Lions would’ve taken a draw or a major comeback of the game which it would’ve been the most thrilling for them. The Dees were able to grabbed the footy before the siren sounded to wrapped the game. Some of the Lions players were furious at the referee that one of them caught it fairly but didn’t review the play which it wasn’t fully saved for a mark.

  • The same weekend that I went to Christine’s Weekend House Upstate and I dreamed about the time when I was on month Business Trip to England because it has the highest percentage of viewers overseas and I have some of my personal interests and related to my expression like I wish that I get to do outside of my home country. It was during the month of May 2025, I was on a 1 month experience living in England from Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds, Newcastle, Leicester to London and Southampton.

    The 1st week, I spend my first full week in Liverpool to discover life and piece of history to learn their culture which I visited a couple of Musems and discovered the brand new Bradley Docks Stadium of Everton which is by the water and Anfield to discover the history of Liverpool FC from the Glory Years and their current Champions soviviners epscailly the Premier League Championship Throphy of the 19/20 Season. I stopped by to some cafe’s before and after my seminars about the international support of Autism in the UK and US because Autisticana has the most viewers outside of the United States. I eventually took took 1 day in Manchester to discover interesting spots which i was able to visit the Studios of iTV to see the set of Coronation Street. On the 2nd Week of England, I visited in Leeds, from Monday Night to Friday during the day and decide to take drive and dropped off my first rental car and took the train and cabs at local ranks. When I got to my appartment, I had a very special friend name Patrick and he is on the autism spectrum. He really enjoyed the life of England and became a huge fans of my blogs which I started with Leeds United getting secured in the Premiership against the Brentford Bees, especially the greatest comeback against Bournemouth.

    Patrick wanted to give me the best surprise for my Tuesday night that he give me an extra ticket for me to see Leeds United against Nottingham Forest. On the other hand, his mate which Ryan Colloney is close friend of him and had 2 more of friends which Finley and Conor which he has his other mates that would make it to the match like Tyler, James and like the mates that I Would like to have on Tuesday Nights back at home. Patrick works at the cafe by the city Centre with the Taxi Rank which he works on Tuesday, Friday and Saturday depending on football day for the local. When I got to the Marriott which I didn’t realize that he lives around the area and always walk in the area.

    I was so pumped to watch Leeds United play on a Tuesday Night at Eland Road which Leeds. Before I got ready I FaceTime my mom to check how everything is doing and heard Danica my Parrot who makes noises as usual so I talked to her about the weather was gorgeous outside and it was the same temperature as my holiday while it’s mostly cloudy in England and it’s mostly sunny back at home. I went to Patrick’s House to take the light rail to the stop where they always hangout on Tuesday Nights but this time the wanna walk to Eland Road to experience the moment and Leeds United has been the best team in the League outside of the main 6 clubs included Newcastle United. Liverpool FC has won the Premier League Title during the 2023/2024 while it was nice to bring back to fans watch the moment in person which I suddenly remember the moment when my room was crazy even the birds came the party. While Man City and Arsenal are battling the League while we focused on Leeds unforgettable Season with so many lady winning goals which they’re lucky to take the Top 10 in the League. If Leeds win against Nottingham they’ll take 5th Place before the 2024/2025 Season ends.

    When we got to the Stadium, Patrick and I were so excited while his mates were having their normal conversations. It was a thrilling experience to see Leeds United even by the famous statue outside of the stadium. We took our seats and started off with Leeds taking the ball while I was lucky to seat by the view of the goal with the tunnel of fans leaving in and out of their seats, Leeds United got their first goal of the match with Rodgrio from a great pass from Patrick Bamford. We saw the most beautiful sunset with all of the beautiful colors after the clouds pulled out. Before it reached 20 minutes Patrick and I walked around the Concourse of Leeds which it was cool to see the entire path empty so we had a quick stop to get snacks and a toilet break. When we planned to walk back to our seats, we heard the whistle blow but we saw the tvs in action but it was a penalty for Leeds to give Nottingham Forrest to level it up and heard the away fans fading in the echoes of belief. We ran upstairs and Forrest take the Penalty kick and Brennan Johnson got the goal to level it up. It didn’t stop with the Forrest taking the lead at the 35th Neco Willams the former Liverpool player pass it to Joe Worrall and did a long range kick to run the ball and give Nottingham the lead 2-1 which it stayed until halftime. We saw the beaufil colors of the sky to avoid the misery of the performance and we sang the Leeds Anthem with our hearts with the big general Leeds Supports but on our side of the field but the opposite side had more fans that were explicative that had some Hooligans and crazy young men who can care less. At the time of my dream it was one week after the day when Leeds took an outstanding victory 4-3 against Bournemouth which I still had Jesse Marsch who was the Coach of Leeds and huddle up to regroup the team and bounce back to get some in the 2nd half of the match. The match started with Leeds off to a slow start but Nottingham Forest took control of the ball for the first 10 minutes but until Jack Harrison got a great pass from Luke Ayling but it was so close at was an inch for a goal but hit the post but at the same time the goalkeeper Dean Henderson touched it before it hit the post. Tyler Adams kicked the ball for a corner kick and pass it to Liam Cooper and did a massive pass to Patrick Bamford which Leeds got the goal at the 57th Minute to level it up which I wanted to use it for my video compilation for my vlog. I was happy that wanted to record one moment of the memory lane with Leeds. After Leeds was able to tie it up 2-2, the match was starting to get into Leeds way but had fouls from both sides and a couple of yellow cards along the way. When it was time for some substitutes took over the field which Nottingham shortly got for a serious foul which it was originally checked for a yellow card but review the video and realize it was a call for a red card at the 75th minute. The whole Leeds fan were happy so Patrick and I laugh at Nottingham’s misfortune. At the 80th minute, the dusk sky was beautiful even it would stay natural twilight for the rest of the evening was beautiful but 3 other new Leeds players took some quick passed it Weston Mackenzie and ran it all the way to Brendan Aaronson got a powerful and all of the fans around the Eland Road got hyped up they thought it was going to be the winning goal. All the fans sing American Boy Leeds Edition after the celebration of Aaronson’s Goal. By the the 85th minute the dutchmen Pascal Struijk was about get the goal which he was tripped for a foul but the Referee blow the whistle even if the was ball was already in the net, either way the fans were blasted to raise the energy whenever if it counts or not but Leeds got a desperate chance to take the 4th goal. Pascal Struijk was able to get a second chance to retake the goal for a penalty kick which gives Leeds United a thriller lead 4-2. Everyone screamed for the goal and partied like its the moment of time. There was singing and shouting from fans around the stadium which some fans planed to leave before the traffic takes over. Everyone put pure heart for Leeds will move up to Fifth Place which they could their award for going to the Europa League Group Stage for the 25/26 Season. At the 90th Minute which they added 5 minutes of stoppage time, Willy Gnonto took the run and pass it Crysencio Summerville and wrapped up with a stunning goal which as soon as cheered, everyone got excited but i got too excited and accidentally on an empty seat which I had a quick chuckle it wasn’t plan to jump up and down for that moment. The match closed it with an outstanding win for Leeds United defeated Nottingham 5-2. As soon as the match ended with a victory as fans leaved the Stadium, we stayed for an extra 15 minutes I took a group photo with my England Mates which one of Leeds Stewarts did it before we got kicked out as we were the last few 100 people to wait for the traffic to fade down. When were ready to leave the Stadium, we took the exit path and saw some kids and happy fans outside of the Stadium pointed out that was gut who wrote the blog about Leeds United from Autisticana. It was a memorial match to witness the greatest home wins of the season.

    We all departed our ways which some have work and I was getting ready for a special VIP Nightclub from Someone in Leeds that messaged me since I was famous for Dance Artist in the UK was Awesome and Songs in High Pitch for Drum n Bass Artist. So Patrick and I showed me his place to meet his family before I walk back to the Marriott to get ready for the Nightclub. We took the rail took the place by the Town Centre and it was Nightclub that usually opens on Fridays and Saturdays but opens during the week for special occasions or close the place when no one makes reservations for special occasions. When we got to the place Patrick’s 3 Mates came in on the other side the town centre which Ryan, Finn and Conor were ready to pump up the music. We got in for a special VIP Music playlist for me from all of my favorite artists of Drum n Bass in the 2020s which it was perfect and played most of my favorite songs in high pitch.

    There was list of songs from BLVCK CROWZ, Aktive, Alexa Mae, Blanke, Delta Heavy, Freaks and Geeks, Friction, Georgie Riot, Holy Goof, Kanine, Koven, Lee Mvtthews, Seven Lions, Skepkiss, Sub Focus, Subsonic, Tsuki, Turno, Wilkinson, and so much more artists that would last the night.

    While some round of the music when I need a break of dancing while the music switch to regular pitch for the audio I socialize with The Ladies and talked about my work of art and creativity in the world of blogging. I had some great chats and had some a nice chat about life and music which I also talked about what was life with music festivals. I also danced with some of them and flirted with them to get the attention. Afterwards I went back to dancing with my mates and some of the guys brought their women they want to dance with while I was more focused on a people person with women. We also did some wacky dance moves and brought the club to an unforgettable night to remember. When it was 2AM, the party finished and we said goodbye to our partners and exchanged social accounts to keep in touch so we walked to the pizzeria and howled like the wolf because we had fun and got drunk so we decided to wrapped up the night by getting a midnight snack. At the pizza place we’re loud and obnoxious about the time of our lives what it feels like to be young and . I had a huge slice of pizza with chips and it was outstandingly delicious.

    When we left the pizzeria, I had a quick hiccup and held a moment to stop and regain some of my momentum because I had plenty to drink at the club and their was a taxi rank few buildings by the pizzeria. Luckily we took the last 2 cabs that were available at the taxi rank. Patrick and I took the minibus which it was the Vauxhall Vivaro as a passenger van which we had a nice chat while riding back to the hotel and also talked to the driver about Leeds Victory and the simple life of driving the cab in Leeds. We decided to finally relax because we used up all of the energy. The guys took the sedan cab as the Audi A6 which they continued to get wild as soon as they left. By the time we got to our destination, we thanked the driver and Patrick also used his card to notify his account for the Leeds Taxi App and I was amazed that you get to be a member of the local cab rewards program. The driver already got an automatic pickup for a passenger who wants to get to the airport for a early morning flight when we walk back to the hotel.

    I took him to my room at the Marriott to have a child feeling by laughing and having fun while spending the rest of the night watching Bluey and Clohet which I recently dreamed about it as a spin-off version but more in adult animation with the same animation studios and animation style as Bluey which back at home I would watch it on Hulu and the UK has a streaming site which lucky both Australia and the UK has it on their local network channel.

    As soon as we woke up by noon for a Wednesday which we made coffee to start the day so I can get ready for a Zoom Meeting with Christine. I had a business meeting on Zoom with Christine and talked about the importance of Autisticana and upcoming events later in the summer. After the Zoom meeting we stop by at a Cafe by the town Centre to have brunch. Then Patrick showed me his Autisticana Building in Leeds near Bradford which it’s actually a house in the dead end path in Pudsey within 5 minutes away from the Train Station. We did some blogging on their own site included a category on what a positive impact about your week if it’s good or most memorable highlight and I was happier to see Patrick’s Teacher Tiffany who runs for the Autisticana Division of the UK which I was the top American Fan that often goes on their website. The house was next to the Group Home for the individuals to learn independence skills so they don’t have to deal with pupils that are typical neighbors. They have the sensory room in the basement and the Colour Room in the upstairs Room. We decided to write a blog about Leeds and then we made season pesto and tomato sandwiches. Afterwards we wave goodbye and we both walked to the train station and and hugged Patrick and wave goodbye when we got his local train station and I went back to the Marriott and talked to Christine about everything plus the most important lessons of life.

    The next morning I took a great goodnight sleep and took the train to Newcastle and had another conference Meeting. I also went to the beach to rent a surfboard and discovered St. James Park which is home to Newcastle United. I took an evening nap so I can stay up late at the nightclub where they play all kinds of Dance Music from Synth-pop to heavy bass music. I also dance with a lot of different attractive women. The next day I went to Leicester to have another Conference Meeting which I went to visit a facility for Autism of Leicester, which there was recreation Centre which the people were awesome. During my few days of Leicester, I discovered the town Centre and some of the historic sites of England. I wrapped the weekend and went to the nightclub with pop music and dance. I also dance with a lot of attractive women and chatted with them about my stories and life which I had the sexy moves when the music was blasted. I was the top dancer of the night luckily most of my favorite pop and dance songs from the 2000s, 2010s, and today’s hits were in high pitch like I used to hear on the radio which was awesome. I was also happy that one of my favorite woman was able to take me home for a one-night stand. The next morning I woke up with the birds chirping and we went to the cafe of Downtown Leicester City. We talked about life, music and type of style of interaction and the way feel about other people included my life story while feeling relaxed than dealing with the loud music last night. I was happy to bring up my horizons to talk about my experiences that most neurotypical people don’t even realize about my genius of autism. We talked about our favorite holidays and top memories including nightclub stories even though I don’t go as much back home because I feel free to avoid any crimes or drugs in the club while at the resorts you don’t have to even worry about waking to a dark night scary. We decided to stay friends because she is more into the social life but I was happy to text her on socials when I get a chance about music and my blogs.

    During my final week of England, my friend BFF Patrick texted me that Leeds United won 2-1 against Huddersfield which he was glad that that we went Tuesday over Saturday because he realized he had work last minute. I chatted with him on the train from Leicester to Paddington. On My visit to London, I stopped by to spend a couple of days to stay in London to see the top attractions like the London Tower, The London Eye, Queen Elisabeth’s Castle, Buckingham Palace, The London Museum, Big Ben, the new Tottenham Stadium and other popular attractions of London. I wish the Queen of England would still be alive. I took the Black Cab, the London Tube. and walked through the London Bridge. I was also invited to the Autisticana Sponsorship Meeting in London by the London Tower.

    I spend my last my full day Southampton I took a rental car from London and drove it to Southampton for my last conference event in the Uk and watched the season finale of the Premier League on my phone and laptop at some hotel by the beach near Southampton. I was more focused with the Leeds United match at St. Mary’s Southampton

Additionally, the Brett Kirk Medal is awarded at the conclusion of every match during the course of the regular season.

    Despite the fact that it was the Sydney Derby on a dreary Saturday afternoon with a few passing rains, it was also Toby Bedford’s debut for the GWS Giants, for whom he had previously played for the Melbourne Demons.

While Luke Parker had the ball following an immediate clearance advantage and kicked the ball into the center square, Will Hayward caught the ball and did not include apprehensive of dropping it for an easy catch for a huge grab.

Franklin followed by passing the ball to Hayward at a Centering Kick, which Errol Gulden caught by the goal square and gave the Swans a commanding lead for the very first time in the remainder of the game. The Swans maintained their lead with a behind from Franklin, another goal from Hayward, and a rushed behind from Issac Heaney. The Giants ultimately achieved something miraculous when Callum Brown kicked it in the Centre Square with a long range pass to Callaghan and dropped the footy to Conligio with the spin inside the 50 metre and launched it and bounced it all the way to the goal square to count it out as a goal, leaving the Giants lost for words.

When Josh Kelly snatched the ball, he carried it out of the center square and kicked it to Harry Himmelberg into the metre circle, where he scored from a 40-metre range but had enough space for a simple goal. The Giants possessed plenty of time to catch up to the Swans since the game was still underway in the Final Quarter. When Heeney had the ball, he passed it to Paley, who kicked it to Marc Sheather, who almost seized the ball but somehow went high in the air, so Harry Rawston almost intercepted the footy, but Chad Warner kicked the ball for a screamer goal out of nowhere.
