Updates Posted!


Whew! Another long, long day… I got up at a bearable time today and then painted for an hour or two in the morning while Phil worked on the images. We've gotten well over three thousand posted today (about a third in the members areas). In addition, ModBlog and BMEvideo were both updated as well… and for those of you who read it, thanks to some submissions from a friend on IAM, Under Mars (the military photo site) is also updated.

Other than that, some dick named “XXXXXXXXX” from XXXXXXXXX (redacted because I consider this situation resolved-ish) keeps sending me deranged threats. I guess some apprentice at his shop wrote an experience where the follow-through was bad, and he's flipping out that it's a lie that makes the shop look bad and I have to remove it immediately. I told him I'd be happy to post a counter-story, or that he could fill me in on the details and I'd investigate the issue… He refused to give me any other information and just kept threatening to call his lawyer, and demanded that it happen by the end of the weekend. Uh, no.

Eventually after he kept refusing to give me any details about the specific nature of his complaint (apparently I'm “slenderizing his studio”), I told him to stop wasting my time and just pay his lawyer to listen to him blabber… so he sent me this…

It's going to be money well spent to see that bs idiot zoo you call a website come down. I've already made list of the tattoo shops that have been insulted on your website and I'm going to contact them all.

You're an insult to the business of tattooing and body piercing and will be a pleasure to assist in your website's demise. If you think it's alright to slander and allow false statements to be made about someone's business get ready for the same.

Have a great night freakshow.

I don't know, to me, the experience really didn't seem like a big deal. A piercer lost a follow through on an unusual piercing. Fact is, it happens. Nor does it seem that strange to me that a reversal might be tried on an apprentice. But, because the shop is refusing to say anything other than “remove that now”, I can't fully confirm the details of course, but I sure can confirm that at least a part of the staff at that studio are assholes, and I personally wouldn't go in there for anything.

Whatever… I'm looking forward to hearing what “false statements” he and his motley crew of also-poorly-written-of artists are going to issue to “slander” BME as he carries out his promised retaliation.

Anyway, I'm out of here… tomorrow morning I have to get up at about 6AM (which SUCKS) to make it to Ryan and Corrie's place and then to Oshawa in time for the arm wrestling tournament. It's at Park Place Sports Bar and Grill (across from the GM plant) tomorrow (Saturday) afternoon if you'd like to come. I'll be the tired looking guy with the tattoo on his face…

Oh yeah, and thanks to Beachnut for the cover shot!

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
