Psychiatric Diagnosis and Custody Battle: Judge Grossman Suspected of Mental Illness as Battle Looms Over Forced Return of Teens to Ambrose

CT Family Court Judge Jane Grossman
An increasing number of parents are finding indications that Judge Jane Grossman suffers from an unspecified personality disorder.

As FR reported, Chris Ambrose is trying to force his children to live with him. This week, he forced them out of their home with their mother.

He got Judge Thomas O’Neill to issue a restraining order, barring Karen Riordan from being within 100 yards of them.

Mia, 16, Mathew, 16, and Sawyer, 13, chose not to return to Ambrose, preferring to live with their maternal grandfather.

It was not the first time Ambrose forced his children out of their happy home with their mother.

Chris Ambrose’s rural home in Madison, CT.

Mental Health of the Mother

In addition to convincing Judge O’Neill that the teens’ wish to live with their mother is the result of her coercive control, Ambrose says Riordan is mentally ill.

This assessment is based on the opinion of psychologist Jessica Biren Caverly. Ambrose paid Caverly more than $12,000 to do a neutral custody evaluation report in 2020 to determine who should have custody. Caverly determined Riordan “appeared” to have a personality disorder, though she could not specify which type it was.

To be fair to Caverly, there was no way to know what Riordan’s mental illness was, or if she had any, since Caverly was not Riordan’s therapist, and therefore she could not obtain informed consent to diagnose her. 

Nevertheless, the appearance of a personality disorder observed by Caverely was sufficient for Family Court Judge Jane Grossman to diagnose from the bench that Riordan had bipolar disorder.

Ironically, bipolar disorder is the mental illness that many litigants who have come before her say is a condition Judge Grossman herself suffers from.

Judge Jane Grossman exhibits symptoms of narcissistic and delusional disorders, as well as indications of hypomania….

Judge Grossman, appearing also to suffer from anti-social disorder [sociopathic subtype, secondary psychopathy], ruthlessly ordered the immediate removal of the children – at that time 13, 13, and 9 – out of their home with their mother – their primary attachment figure their entire lives.

Imagine you are the children of Karen Riordan and absentee father Chris Ambrose. After living your life with your mother, some person in black robes, with schizoaffective disorder, who never met you, or your siblings, decides you are leaving your happy home and living with a mean and callous stranger named Ambrose – and what’s worse – you cannot even speak to your mother – the person who raised you all your life!  This kind of cruelty is par for the course in family court. 

The children woke up in their mother’s home on April 24, 2020. By evening, they were shockingly at their father’s home and told they could not speak to their mother.

In December 2020, after eight months with their father, a CT Family Court Family Relations Counselor, Allison Kaas Esq. determined that Ambrose was a high-risk abuser.

It took significant legal work from Ambrose’s attorney to get the dissocial Judge Grossman to ignore this dangerous finding. 

In January 2021, DCF took custody from Ambrose

Again, Ambrose’s attorney made strenuous efforts to defeat the children’s claims of abuse, and avoid forensic testing of the children, and Ambrose regained custody of his unhappy children.

The kids lost contact with their mother for three years, as Ambrose moved them to his rural house and kept them free of her and all her family and friends with whom the kids grew up – grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and lifelong friends.

Ambrose maintains that the brainwashing the mother did was so severe that even after three years of constant one-on-one control, he could not deprogram their minds.

On April 22, 2023, Mia ran from her father to her mother’s home. 

While Judge Thomas ‘Steal’ O’Neill claims Karen Riordan [r] coercively controls her son, Matthew, the 16-year-old is physically too big to be forced by Riordan to leave his father – or for that matter force him to return to him. 

A month later, Matthew left Ambrose and went to his mother. 

Finally, Sawyer, 13, [above] left his father on July 4, fled to his mother, and rejoined his two siblings.  He had happiness for a little more than a month before Judge ‘Steal’ O’Neill ordered the mother out of their lives – without ever meeting the children. 

He depended on the good word of their father alone.

  Mental Health

Dr. Bandy X. Lee….

Psychiatrist Bandy X. Lee MD evaluated Riordan for her mental health – with informed consent.

Dr. Lee wrote:

I have performed a full psychiatric evaluation of Ms. Karen Riordan and have been following her for almost four months.

This 56-year-old, white, special education teacher, and divorced mother of three children, ages 12 [now 13], 16 and 16, has been found to have good mental health, excellent psychological development, and no barriers to parenting, but only evidence of being an excellent mother, as confirmed by at least three other psychiatric experts.

Interviews, written statements, and voice recordings of her children consistently state that they prefer to live with their mother and are afraid of their father. Indeed, they have made disturbing, highly credible reports of severe emotional, psychological, physical, and sexual abuse and coercive control by their father, as well as a history of litigation abuse that has kept all three children from their mother for three years—until they ran away finally to be with her.

This length of separation for growing children, from the mother who raised them, is traumatic in itself and should never have happened.

This is not a difficult case. I can state by a preponderance of the evidence, to a reasonable degree of medical certainty, that Ms. Riordan is more than a competent mother. If it is their desire to do so, the children should be allowed to stay with her.

PI Gomez Reports Molesting

Private Investigator Manual Gomez, an award-winning investigator – who won an Emmy award for his groundbreaking work in stopping child trafficking – has been working on the Ambrose cases – as a volunteer.

He told FR the following and states he will testify to it under oath.

Investigator Gomez said:

I have been investigating the allegations of child molestation by Christopher Ambrose against his three adopted children. This case has been going on for almost three years, and Mr. Ambrose and his lawyers have successfully prevented any evidence showing his molestation of the children from being entered into court evidence or even presented to the court.

I have a 35-minute video of my initial meeting with the children. The children describe in detail the molestation they endured by their father.

[Excerpt from the video:


Another video shows that Mr. Ambrose removed the doorknobs from his children’s room to provide easier access to his children. The children stated he would come into their rooms at night and that they could not lock the door.

Ambrose took the doorknobs off the children’s doors.

Hospital documents support that the children told the ER doctors and hospital psychiatrists of the sexual abuse they suffered at the hands of their adoptive father.

The hospital determined that Mr. Ambrose was a threat to the children and recommended that the children go home with the mother.

Throughout my investigation, Mr. Ambrose has made numerous false statements to the court. Each time, he or his lawyers present his allegations without evidence to support the narrative he invents.

You must understand that Mr. Ambrose is a habitual liar. He was fired from his screenwriting position for plagiarism. The allegations of his plagiarism are well known, and reports are easily found on the internet.

Before being fired, Mr. Ambrose told stories for a living. He continues to spin stories to paint an untrue narrative. 

Mr. Ambrose let his 16-year-old daughter drive his car without a license or permit. 


You can see the speedometer in the car pointing at 45 mph. In court, Mr. Ambrose stated his daughter does not drive his car.

Mr. Ambrose’s eldest son, Matthew, missed 52 school days last year due to his depression and drug use. After returning to his mother, he no longer showed signs of depression and quit using drugs. 

The two 16-year-old children filed complaints against their father in juvenile court, and all three children ran away from him. They fled to the safety of their mother’s home.

Another investigator conducted a forensic analysis on Mr. Ambrose’s computer. The investigator found hundreds of photos of young boys and men having sex. 

The actual age of young men in the videos are unclear. They are posed to look underage, but whether the models are actually under age 18 is unknown.

Does Not Watch Child Porn Says Ambrose

Ambrose denied viewing any child porn to his custody evaluator, Dr. Caverly.

Caverly wrote in her report, “[Ambrose stated] ‘as an adult, [he is] allowed to look at porn.’ Mr. Ambrose stated that… a website called Latino Boiz… does not include children.”

In fairness to Caverly, she did not get a chance to determine if Ambrose visited child porn websites. It took work by his attorneys, but Ambrose obtained a court order that barred Caverly from reviewing evidence of child porn on his computers.

  • Ambrose is a psychopath. No father would do this. Even other parents who get sole custody are not as ruthless as he is. He corners his daughter with the police to force her to go into his car? WHAT MORE DO PEOPLE NEED TO SEE?!!!

      • Best comment here, better one is why the hell was Adelman reinstated as a judge in Connecticut with SOOO many parents speaking against him!!!????
        It’s infuriating.
        I had Adelman, he threatened me for protecting my child on transcript.
        These judges don’t care.

        Middletown court is the most corrupt.

        • It’s not that “these judges don’t care”.

          Judges are all smart enough to care in one way or another.

          Some judges don’t know about the corruption.
          A few judges know about the corruption and they support the corruption.
          Most judges know about the corruption and are too afraid to say anything about it.

          Look at what happens to everyone who speaks up about the corruption.

          It’s sort of like high school. Bullies and mean girls are in the minority and everyone’s afraid of them anyway. 😐

  • How should Democrat morals, Republican morals and Constitutional morals govern Connecticut “family courts”? says:

    From the Desk of Chairman Ben Proto:

    AG Tong and CT Democrats Take Fight Against Parents to New Level
    Connecticut Democrats want to keep parents out of their children’s lives.

    CT Attorney General William Tong and Connecticut Democrats are taking the fight against parental rights to a new level, and it’s never been clearer that they do not believe that parents are the final authority over their children’s physical and psychological health.

    In the recent words of Joe Biden “These are our kids. These are our neighbors. Not somebody else’s kids, they’re all our kids.” The Government claiming your kids are their kids marks a new chapter in the left’s insanity booklet.

    “[Parents] Outing students against their will is dangerous,” says AG William Tong.

    Connecticut Republican State Chairman Ben Proto responded, “In other words, Democrats feel telling parents their son now believes he is a girl is dangerous. Democrats feel it is okay for your 7 year old daughter to decide, on her own, that she is a boy and to take puberty blockers at school without you knowing. The left knows they can’t fully indoctrinate your children until you are out of the picture. Parents are a threat to them, Tong says himself that they are “dangerous”.

    The Attorney General’s argument that shielding parents from what is happening in their kids’ lives during the biggest developmental time of their life tells voters everything we need to know. Democrats view your children not as individuals that must be nurtured by their parents, but as tools of the State to push their radical, false gender identity politics onto.”

    “Parents and legal guardians should have the final say on their children’s health and well being. Not School Boards, not teachers, not school nurses, and not elected officials. The kids are not lab rats, and the schools should not be a government run experiment on them,” Proto concluded.


  • Judge Jane Grossman:

    1. Works in lockstep with fraud custody evaluator Jessica biren Caverly.

    2. Caverly was used by grossman to take Riordan’s three kids, Joriz Tiberi’s kids, and Luigi DiBella a six kids. And so many more!

    She’s a piece of shit. No ethics. Evil monster.

  • They violated due process repeatedly with this mockery of a TRO.

    Ambrose is alleged perpetrator.
    Alleged perpetrator wants to silence his victims.

    He filed on victims behalf saying he knows better. They’re brainwashed and need TRO against the mother they love and ran to for safe haven.

    They filed petitions against Ambrose so they could be heard- independently- with their own attorney. And Ambrose couldn’t risk this.

    So he said he knew mother coerced them into making claims and denied them the right to speak when they are the victims. He never notified their counsel.

    This was a fast play engineered by Ambrose. But it’ll catch up with him. He’s getting nailed.

  • I don’t know what to say anymore. What Ambrose is doing to Karen and these kids is beyond disgusting. It’s even more disturbing that the courts are allowing it.

  • I just wanted to add one more point. The children need a psychiatrist not a psychologist who can prescribe the right dosage of medications to curb their desire to run away from their father. The court decided he is the best parent. They are brainwashed into thinking they are happier with their mother.

    The right prescription in sufficient dosages will curb this need to use threat therapy. Of course the mother should still go to prison until the youngest is 18 or even 21 with the judge monitoring her prison calls .
    A good 10 year sentence will act as a deterrent for other mothers violating Jennifer’s law and coercively controlling.

    These little ones have suffered long enough being kept apart from this father and the damage is irreversible.

    Lastly the experts like Bandy Lee and this Gomez thug should not be allowed to comment or give opinions on a case they are not invited by the court.

    • You are delusional. Can you explain why it is that the children have been silenced by the court from the ages 12 to almost 17?

      The kids need drugs to be reprogrammed? Do you own a reunification camp?

    • That’s the answer, dope the the kids
      up enough that you ( Chris) can do whatever h you want to them. You may be influencing the court with your big money attorneys but not anyone who has enough sense to see thru you.

    • I see you listened to my advice Chris!! Winston is a good name! Did you come up with that name all by yourself or did you throw Cuda a little cash to help you with that? Or maybe you did him a personal favor?? A king of “ under the desk type thing”!! 😉😉..I knew you would fall for that bait I threw out there!! See everybody?? We all know now that Chris is the anonymous idiot that keeps defending himself, and acting like it’s his friends and fans.. but now he’s the new and improved “Winston”!!!!! YES!!!

    • Ok Chris. Keep the kids drugged. One judge said their better off with the mother the other judge said Chris is a sick bastard. So Ct let’s kids get sec changes at 15 without parental consent but the court won’t let the kids testify as to what a known perfect did to them. Also take a look at Chris’s brothers divorce another guy who likes to abuse woman. I guess Mommy didn’t hold the them enough as kids. Chris is in for a world of surprises if this goes down stay tuned.

  • These kids should go back to their father and Karen should be stopped from interfering. The most effective way is for her to be incarcerated until the children agree not to see her again. This is called Threat Therapy and is highly effective.

    These kids are selfish and are only thinking about what they want and not considering what their father wants. He sacrificed their happiness and his own happiness to take care of them for three years.

    You can’t lock the kids up. You must put the mother in prison and tell the kids she doesn’t get out until they agree never to talk to her again.

    Then if they care about her they will agree and if they don’t then it shows that she had coercive control and this is the only way to break the hold.

    • Yo Winston.. I have a better idea. You can move in with Chris, and suck his penis, and let him do you up the ass..or vice versa.. then maybe he will leave the children alone.. and then if you get tired of being there, or he starts mistreating and abusing you, and you try to leave, he can pay off his crooked lawyers and judges to say that you are his property, and he owns you, and you can’t go anywhere!! How would you like that fuck boy? You can be his boy toy… would you like that? I bet you would!! You’re just as sick as he is.

  • Ambrose seems to be a pedo. The whole CT Family Court systems supports pedophilia. All Family Court judges need to be investigated. CT is a dominantly Democrat state. Democrats support pedophiles like Joseph Rosenbaum, Roman Polanski and Woody Allen: do the math.

        • Re: public-private network of “CONNECTICUT CHAPTER OF AFCC INC”, established in 1984:

          “Committee on Judicial Ethics Teleconference Friday, April 19, 2013
          Members present via teleconference: Justice Barry R. Schaller, Chair, Judge Edward R. Karazin, Jr., Vice Chair, Judge Maureen D. Dennis, Judge Christine E. Keller, and Professor Jeffrey A. Meyer. Staff present: Attorney Martin R. Libbin, Secretary.

          I. With the above noted Committee members present, Justice Schaller called the meeting to order at 1:02 p.m.
          II. Although publicly noticed, no members of the public were in attendance.
          III. The Committee approved the Minutes of the March 22, 2013 meeting. (Professor Meyer abstained.)
          IV. The Committee ratified Emergency Staff Opinions JE 2013-13.

          V. The Committee discussed Informal JE 2013-15 concerning whether a Judicial Official may serve on the board of directors of a nonprofit organization that provides services to court-involved clients and receives the majority of its funding from contracts with the Judicial Branch.

          The nonprofit organization has multiple contracts with the Judicial Branch to provide various assessments and services to, inter alia, litigants in family, juvenile and criminal court matters (hereinafter “clients”). Clients may be referred directly by the court, as well as by probation and family services personnel. Various contracts require the nonprofit organization to provide reports to the court and to have personnel appear in court to testify regarding a client’s success or failure to complete the services and programs provided by the nonprofit organization.

          Rule 1.2 of the Code of Judicial Conduct states that a judge “should act at all times in a manner that promotes public confidence in the … impartiality of the judiciary, and shall avoid impropriety and the appearance of impropriety. The test for appearance of impropriety is whether the conduct would create in reasonable minds a perception that the judge violated this Code or engaged in other conduct that reflects adversely on the judge’s honesty, impartiality, temperament, or fitness to serve as a judge.”

          Rule 1.3 of the Code states that a “judge shall not use or attempt to use the prestige of judicial office to advance the private interests of the judge or others or allow others to do so.”

          Rule 3.1 of the Code states that a Judicial Official may engage in extrajudicial activities, except as prohibited by law; however, a judge may not participate in extrajudicial activities that will (1) interfere with the proper performance of judicial duties, (2) lead to frequent disqualification, (3) appear to a reasonable person to undermine the judge’s independence, integrity or impartiality, or (4) appear to a reasonable person to be coercive.

          Rule 3.7(a) provides that a judge “may participate in activities sponsored by organizations or governmental entities concerned with the law, the legal system, or the administration of justice… including,…(6) serving as an officer, director, trustee, or nonlegal advisor of such an organization or entity, unless it is likely that the organization or entity: (A) will be engaged in proceedings that would ordinarily come before the judge; or (B) will frequently be engaged in adversary proceedings in the court of which the judge is a member or in any court subject to the appellate jurisdiction of the court of which the judge is a member.” The rule’s commentary states that “[e]ven for law related organizations, a judge should consider whether the membership and purposes of the organization, or the nature of the judge’s participation in or association with the organization, would conflict with the judge’s obligation to refrain from activities that reflect adversely on a judge’s independence, integrity, and impartiality.” Rule 3.7, cmt. (2).

          In discussing Rule 3.7(a)(6)(B), the Committee (with one member recused) determined that the prohibition on serving as an officer, director, trustee or nonlegal advisor of an organization concerned with the law, the legal system or the administration of justice if the organization “will frequently be engaged in adversary proceedings in the court of which the judge is a member” applies, not only when the organization is a party to adversary proceedings, but also when the organization supplies witnesses and reports for use in adversary proceedings. Based upon the foregoing, an appearance of impropriety would arise if a Judicial Official serving on the board of directors of a nonprofit organization or member of the Judicial Official’s staff were to refer clients to the nonprofit organization. Further, the nonprofit organization may use or attempt to use the prestige of the Judicial Official’s office when seeking additional contracts with the Judicial Branch or others.

          Accordingly, the Committee, with one member recused, unanimously determined that service on the nonprofit organization’s board of directors would violate Rules 1.2, 1.3, 3.1 and 3.7(a)(6)(B).“

  • Sorry, but trying a divorce/custody case in the court of public opinion is heinously wrong. And Karen Riordan forcing these children to engage in this drama is also horrifically wrong. The fact that she can’t see that tells you a lot about why she lost custody.

    • Really Chris was an absent parent for 15 years living his best gay life in NYC and California. Court of public opinion I wonder if Chris’s termination letter from Fox is published how Chris would feel about that. Or his brothers spousal abuse charges from his ex I guess he backed off because her brother is a multimillionaire. Party on Chris’s street tomorrow big barbecue

  • So if ske is mentally ill, then she has rights and protections under ADA/A as well as attorney code of conduct and judicial cannon, and the kids are being discriminated against for associating with a disabled person. Step more into it Connecticut!

  • Many of the judges in Connecticut are power hungry and abusive. If they were tested by a neutral party I am sure they would be unfit to sit on the bench. They blatantly and openly abuse judicial authority because they know absolutely no one will be held accountable.

    • She definitely made major damage not only in this case but numerous others! She is very destructive! Why Jane why??? She needs to step down and face the consequences like she tries to do to all that go in front of her! They need to get some of the CT judicial employees to start to speak about her abusive on the bench! Have courage you judicial employees! People of CT deserve better!

      • Those who see the harm done to children and families, knowing what’s happening is criminal who say nothing are complicit.

        Many thanks to the few brave legislators who tried their best to help all these years. You are and will be known among heroes.

      • The electric chair is a legal punishment. FR does not condone any lawbreaking or taking the law into one’s own hands. Besides FR has diagnosed judge Grossman and even if she had committed a death penalty offense we would oppose it due to her mental health issues.

        • Anyone can be a knowledge broker. FR is as qualified to diagnose as all the family court evaluators put together.

          Joseph Hooker and Thomas Huxley (known as Darwin’s Rottweiler) evaluated plenty of people and studied lots of science. What good did they do?

          And why does Hooker pose in so many photos, pointing his index finger toward the floor? Is that another secret sign for special people only?

          In 1856, “… Hooker … wanted to bring ‘about more unity in our efforts to advance Science’. They now had ‘sufficient command over the public, as Examiners’. … They talked of a corporate shield to protect their gains. Professional status meant ousting the ‘pitiful botchers’. It meant controlling knowledge through their own journal, getting science into the classrooms, forming a club — some ‘intellectual resort’ where they could sojourn. Ultimately, it meant selling themselves as knowledge-brokers.” Desmond, Adrian J. “The Nature of the Beast.” Huxley: From Devil’s Disciple to Evolution’s High Priest, Perseus Books, Reading, Mass, 1994, p. 221.

  • You can’t diagnose the Judge Grossman. that is you practicing without a license. Judge Grossman is not mentally ill.

    You went to end up in a cell next to Paul Biyne?

    Judge Grossman had to get her reappointment as a judge. That’s what made her give the kids to the father and to help everyone make a little money.

    Nancy Aldrich’s son was her insurance that Jane did not get what another Jane got. Will saved her bacon and she saved his mama sliced bacon. Mama spent a lot for her big boy’s college.

    Big payday for everyone courtesy Ambrose.

    Don’t forget Jocelyn and Ed and even little Richard. This was greased from day one. So don’t think Jane Grossman is crazy. Except she’s crazy like a fox. Get that too.

    Add it up. Jane Grossman gets reappointed Judge. Will Haskell shuts down the Minnie brigade.

    Nancy makes half a million. Jocelyn makes quarter million. Big Ed gets $100k Little Rich gets $50k.

    Nobody makes nothing if kids go to mama. Put kids with Papa Perv and mama fights to the end and Papa Pedo pays to the end. Till the money is by bye.

    But Pedo has more and now Goulden and Cuda are on the gravy train. Mama won’t quit.

    So they all get together and make a buck. Kids will be 18 soon maybe Ambrose can turn them against their mother by then. Even he can’t he got his money worth. They made it hot for mama. Kids can stay where they want when 18. Two more years. Big deal. This is business.

    • It’s so transparent! Our State and AG is clueless??? I doubt it! Finch is another fav of Janes! He supplies the GAL’s! Frank P please deep dive into her, Jane’s, current and past case results and with a simple spreadsheet the evidence will be clear! Judge O’Neil leaves what they say is a prestigious law firm to become a judge??? All very strange! It’s his lifelong childhood dream to separate the children from parents!!!! I doubt it!

    • It is not illegal to point out symptoms of mental illness. Grossman displays many symptoms of having mental illness.

      If O’Neil, Cuda, Ambrose, Grossman , etc. want to try to use the court system to attack Frank, they may want to ask Clare Bronfman and Squarefoot Raniere how that turned out for them. The Frank Report Army will uncover EVERY SINGLE aspect of their lives from conception to current. No secret will be untold, no stone will be left unturned. Their lives will be flipped upside down every second of every day. It will all be legal. It will be citizen-journalism. They have no idea what they are getting themselves into. There will be no escape hatch. They need to carefully consider their next steps inlife and if destroying their own lives is worth it.

      • “The Frank Report Army will uncover EVERY SINGLE aspect of their lives from conception to current.”

        Oh please. The Frank Report “army”is so lazy they never even take a peek at any original source documents that show the truth about the subjects they get themselves into a froth over.

        For instance, Grossman, never diagnosed anyone. Grossman simply quoted what was in a report provided to her by a psychologist. It’s in a document that was provided here at the Frank report.

        Ya’ll are lazy AF. And gullible.

        • She made a bench ruling in sept 2911 that said a no contact order was necessary “in case the mother have a bipolar episode due to the stress of the divorce”.

          That’s where it originated. There is no diagnosis of bipolar or any mental illness. This is a playbook promoted by the AFCC.

          • She quoted the part about Karen having a bipolar manic episode due to the stress of a divorce from the psychological report. Allegedly it was Karen’s own shrink who made the diagnosis, per the report. It is in the custody evaluation that was released publicly by Karen Riordan.

          • “a bipolar manic episode due to the stress of a divorce”

            Which part — or parts — of that divorce could have been that stressful?

            What material thing and whose lives were at stake that would drive that mother into such a frenzy?

            Who/what was so precious to her that she cared so much about whoever/whatever?

            Some would say no one and no thing would be worth getting that stressed.

  • What’s the big deal. So he looks at mock child porn. The models are over 18 they look like they are 13-16. It is not child porn Latino Boiz is a legal site. My nephew and I watch it together all the time.

    • That’s minor compared to all that’s experienced. Enjoy your young hot Latinos. When a white man adopts Latino dons who make allegation of inappropriate sexual conduct on top of emotional abuse it’s alarming.

      The court denied further analysis for a reason.

    • So you should go watch this trash with Chris. Have a party, he may even turn you on to one of his boiz!!
