Altiyan Child’s Goes Back To Driving A Forklift

Regular commenter Brain Dead Dave, take a bow. Two years ago he predicted from The X Factor winner Altiyan Childs would be back driving a fork lift, and the latest news suggests he is in fact doing just that.

The Daily Telegraph reports:

Having dumped his management and record company last year after a spate of controversies, the cave-dwelling ARIA winner is said to be jumping back in the truck in Sydney’s western suburbs to make ends meet.

“He’s in a very dark, unsettling place,” a Childs confidante toldConfidential.

“He’s going back to work because he has to. There’s no other choice. Maybe he’ll go back to music one day but right now he’s quit. The thing with (forklift driving) is that there are plenty of jobs.”

His fans on Facebook are not going to be happy when they hear this news.

(Takes bow and produces heart clutch gesture)

Good riddance to bad rubbish. Thanks, RR.

When you play the Game of Forklifts you either win or you go back to whence you came.

Winter is coming, Altiyan.

I wouldn’t be promoting his new single RR, he’s had his chance!

5 brain dead dave { 05.31.12 at 9:16 am }

It isn’t really a “new” single…it’s been stiffing for six weeks now. The crumbling Cultourage literally can’t give it away. Shame. Such an original title,too

6 Culinary Boner { 05.31.12 at 9:21 am }

He should’ve redone Marty Rhone’s ‘Denim & Lace’ instead – – ’cause Marty at least was ‘Born to Rock’.

7 Culinary Boner { 05.31.12 at 9:23 am }

“He’s in a very dark, unsettling place,”…

Yep. That’d be a warehouse in Sydney’s west at 5.00am in the morning. Better add “cold” to “dark” and “unsettling”.

Sir Altiyans offsider who produced that ridiculous song Blue Jeans is denying it, so when is Altiyan and Goliath coming out?

9 joan { 05.31.12 at 9:28 am }

I love the website name, is Altiyan at bandcamp?

10 Julia { 05.31.12 at 11:24 am }

Hahaaha oh this does amuse me.. check out Dans Pies fb page .. pic of Altiyan in studio working on his album posted today. As if anyone would believe the telegraph. Because of course that is such top quality journalism.

11 joan { 05.31.12 at 11:42 am }

Arghh fair maiden he could be doing both, He has to make a living doesn’t he? I would hate to think he is collecting a dole check to fund his independent album which will fail if that ridiculous attempt at a single Blue Jeans is anything to go by?

12 brain dead dave { 05.31.12 at 12:33 pm }

You won’t believe the Telegraph, Julia but you’ll believe a person involved in amphetamines, drink driving and weapons matters. LOL.

Poor Altiyan …his career’s on ice …much like him.

13 Chunks { 05.31.12 at 2:18 pm }

Heeeeeere comes Krazy Kerry to get you all….

14 Ingrid { 05.31.12 at 4:11 pm }

Here we go again. Do you realize pictures that are posted today could have been taken ages ago and posted today to try and con the cult into believing what they are told by Dan’s Pies. I would love to see date stamps on the photo’s to believe them rather than the date they are posted on facebook.

I don’t like the sound of us supporting his music career using our taxes. Centrelink would in fact make him go out and get a real paying job to support himself so the Telegraph article would hold some truth.

Do fan’s have lives or are they still spending all day and night on Altiyan’s facebook page?

Oh heaven forbid Krazy Kerry on the war path again. Look out fans or she will enlist her friend Emily again to find out all they can about your personal life just in case you turn on their idol and then make threats against you and your family. I can see more court cases and charges if this is the case. Not bad for someone who advocates for the disabled and calls people retarded at the same time.

Altiyan can shift ~9~ pallets at a time .

Calling Kulty Kezza. Here we are now, entertain us!

16 kenobi { 05.31.12 at 4:59 pm }

Altiyan hasn’t quit music. And I think he will be fine. I know plenty of independent artists who’ll never get close to topping the charts but still make a living from music. Plus he now has this passionate fanbase (ok sure, some of them are nuts but what can you do) that didn’t know he existed the first time around. So there’s no reason why he can forge a decent career from now on, especially if he plays his cards right. People who don’t like him are still going to dislike him but that’s irrelevant… If someone doesn’t hate you, you’re doing something wrong. 😛

17 joan { 05.31.12 at 5:11 pm }

Ummm well he has not played one card right yet? Has he been to rehab?

18 Georgie { 05.31.12 at 6:16 pm }

Altiyan would need a fork lift after being celebate for ~7~ years.

If he’s so divine and powerful why can’t he bestow the miracle of success upon himself?

19 brain dead dave { 05.31.12 at 6:27 pm }

If he’s got sacred sperm-surely he can shift a few lame CD’s? Right?

20 Georgie { 05.31.12 at 6:46 pm }

He might have sacred sperm bdd, but he’s got no spunk.

21 Donnas_turn { 05.31.12 at 9:06 pm }

I wish people could get their facts right…..this is just not true…..why do people always bag Altiyan fans???….Have we not a right to enjoy his concerts and music… seems not……Get over it jealous people!!

22 bella vita { 06.01.12 at 2:21 am }

I believe I predicted he would be back driving a forklift within a year…i was very close
Brain Dead Dave was with me on that sentiment

@Donnas_turn His concerts? his music? Surely you are kidding? People don’t bag his fans…he did this to himself pure and simple…and why on earth would anyone be jealous?

23 Ingrid { 06.01.12 at 7:37 am }

@Donnas_turn Have I missed something when was the last concert? There have been a few attendances that at the last minute there was a no show from him and the concert for his fans just before christmas that was cancelled. He is full of promises that he cant deliver on.

24 joan { 06.01.12 at 5:10 pm }

I will bag a fan, they just tweeted Kevin Rudd telling him Altiyan has not given up, I am sure Kev will announce it in parliament, or maybe a news conference?

25 brain dead dave { 06.01.12 at 5:18 pm }

That’s right, bella vita , I can’t recall if I gave a timeline. Well done on that.

I can just see Kevin Rudd stopping what he’s doing to download some of the messianic meth head’s toons, make that covers.

26 Donnas_turn { 06.26.12 at 9:49 pm }

@ Bella Vita, yes, unfortunetly people do bag his fans which is rediculous but happens as you can see on any thread that mentions his name, and i do think you and many others are jelous as the amount of time you seem to spend on hating hi,, its not normal!…..and @ Ingrid, how could you possibly know what Altiyan’s been up to if you wernt a fan…..bit creepy i think, you seem to think you know alot about Altiyan and his fans, why would this be so if you didnt like him…..sounds like an obsession to me
