Insane porn site owners at it again,.... and again (facepalm)

Months after helping altporn.net and eroticbpm.com write and disseminate a defamatory article that said the website thedangerousdolls.com was publishing child porn (which Xbiz.com called bullshit on, *see earlier post* http://havocandtwigs.blogspot.com/2010/05/corrupt-alt-porn-owners-defamation.html ), Miss Athena Hollow, the owner of geekgirlsonline.net (also .com), xxxlancer.com and a number of other poorly rated amateur altporn websites has resurfaced with the same mindless troll that got her altporn.net and eroticbpm.com (also .net) in so much hot water.

Since this all started I’ve found some imitators and other bloggers either impersonating me or picking up on the story in what they call “activism” or “advocacy”. Some have been saying they were me and using other profiles to post on myspace and facebook, some have said fake profiles and other profiles on facebook were me posting about these websites and others have been other people who seem to be ridding the wake of the insanity to organize porn websites against corruption.
I wonder what the fuck is so special about me all of the sudden? Plenty of folks have had it with these people. Killshot (AKA, Scott Owens, the owner of Eroticbpm) seems to have taken the higher road and has stayed out of this since the effect of his plan to smear thedangerousdolls.com blew up in his face and plummeted interest in his website considerably.
But people like Athena hollow seem to think that there is still something to be made from libeling and repeating libelous information that has already done considerable damage to her own business prospects and reputation.
Now she says I am blackmailing people
http://blog.missathenahollow.com/2010/08/hah-blackmailers-make-me-laugh-my-ass-off/ (That post was taken down but there is a page save below of it)

Before we go on,
let’s go back to WHY she is trying to say I am blackmailing people.
When Scott Owens had been messaging me on his website about the dangerous dolls I was taking much of what he said with a grain of salt. Then when the altporn.net article came out about thedangerousdolls.com both he and Athena hollow were far too active in promoting the article and defending it when I questioned what it was saying.
The article sourced an article by Xbiz.com but nothing in the Xbiz article said or even suggested that thedangerousdolls.com or it’s owners were involved in child porn.
http://www.xbiz.com/news/news_piece.php?id=120984&mi=all&q=sickbucks
It was later discovered that the affiliate program that the Xbiz article was accusing of child porn was itself never involved with child porn either.
http://www.xbiz.com/news/news_piece.php?id=122073&mi=all&q=sickbucks
So the very concept that started all of this, the very reason Altporn.net, Scott Owens and Athena hollow were so hard core about telling the world thedangerousdolls.com was involved in child porn was not just a complete and utter LIE but the article they were trying to use to perpetuate this lie was also another lie in itself.
When I found all of this out I became very angry with Scott Owens and Athena who immediately concocted a series of blog and forum posts claiming that I had been contacting models on behalf of porn websites to make deals for photo shoots and video shoots.
On the earlier blog (posted above) I went over the situation of youtube messages and emails that had been exchanged between myself, another individual who recently appeared on a major cable network tv show and an employee of Scott Owens, the owner of Killshot productions and eroticbpm.
These messages had been collected by Scott Owens, then altered and distributed to these blogs and forums. They were later removed after one of the parties I had communicated with, the individual who had recently been on a major show on a national cable netowrk, realized that the discovery claim (legal procedure for defamation suit) I would have to make to have the defamatory and libelous content removed from these blogs would have revealed who he was and that he had been secretly marketing his appearance on this show before it was aired on it's host network. That would have violated his contract with this network. So instead of filing for defamation and in turn revealing that this person was violating their contract with this major media provider, they said they would request that these messages be taken off the websites and blogs to protect both their and my own privacy.
As you can see from this latest blog post on Athena Hollow’s website it is apparent that after this person's appearance on this cable show these parties once again convinced him to share emails and communications in order to enhance their meaning to something I never said. This time a blackmail conspiracy.
As you can see in this blog post she states clearly:



“This is a one sided conversation, but it’s pretty obvious to get what was said on the other side”
-Quote

She does have a proper title on her blog, "demented rants".

Yes, I'm sure it is VERY obvious what the other person or persons are saying, whom ever they may be and what ever they ACTUALLY said.

So this means they are hijacking these massages and changing them again but this time they are avoiding the pitfall of using the other party’s messages or reference of those people in order to avoid being liable for the bullshit they are trying to spread. Knowing full well that if they are called out on it, these other parties will have to be named, these website owners will have to be included and named (Athena hollow is a stage name) and the ORIGINAL messages will all have to be made public. I have to say that is some amazing bullshit artistry (oh and thanks for ripping off that term in your blog Athena Hollow, christ you actually Plagiarize the people you libel. I was birthing the quote "bullshit artistry" before you could even type. Just check my livejournal account) Ineffective and stupid in any legal context but perfect for convincing any run of the mill moron of tabloid bullshit and libel.
So par for the course in how these mock altporn websites and news sites make up their information.

This is ‘WHY’

The altporn.net article is why they have done this. The blackmail conspiracy story is a perfect diversionary tactic used daily by tabloid news organizations, celebs cheating on their significant others and of course porn website owners who want to keep the heat off when they try to say that another porn site owner is making kiddie porn just so they can try and take out more popular competition. Well it didn’t work and this is not working either.


I’m not the only one who thinks so


http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#!/topic.php?uid=113935338651689&topic=106









I kinda got banned from that group after gettin' a lil feisty with my own responses. I understand like so many others they just don't want this drama but it looks like they are making some more of their own.

http://groups.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=groups.groupprofile&groupID=108202155



I don’t even know half of these people and they are calling bullshit on it.
Other recent rumors from Miss Athena hollow include an accusation that I said she never had cancer.
Which couldn’t be farther from the truth since I actually made and effort to promote and support her cancer donation links when they were being distributed AFTER she and Owens tried to smear me the first time.
What I have said was it was not a good choice for her to go on web cam sessions getting drunk and smoking on eroticbpm (which seem to be the average context of eroticbpm web cam sessions for most of their models) while also telling other web site owners that she could not make web cam sessions because of pain and health issues. Also not a good idea to try telling people that smoking and drinking have nothing to do with cancer when people question when she smokes or drinks on cam at times when she says she is in to much pain from said cancer.
She has also tried to say that I posted her private information online
This is a person who posted her own home address and phone number on a whois look up as the business contact for her PORN WEBSITE.
THEN tried to say that because she has a four year old at home it was harassment that I found out she had posted her own home address and phone on the whois (I did not post the actual address or phone, just the whois link and the network solutions WHOIS look up is a PUBLIC database) for her PORN WEBSITES.
I wouldn’t have even checked the whois on her porn sites if it hadn’t been for her psychotic boyfriend and business partner machine gun posting my own personal information all over eroticbpm and altporn.net and sending sick messages directly to the models while posing as the rep for her websites.
What idiot puts their home address in a TRAILOR PARK as their WHOIS listing to the PUBLIC?!

So ENOUGH already!
Grow the fuck up and get a fucking life. Since this has happened your competitors have only become more popular and I’ve been very happy to share all the nasty shit you have been doing behind everyone’s back all these years. Manipulating information, using fake profiles to promote on MySpace and facebook, spying on competitors, threatening models, convincing models to post your bullshit for you.
Just leave me alone already. You have no friends that you don’t use or manipulate and you obviously care very little for family. Each attempt you have made to hurt me has been visited back upon you ten fold and will continue to the more you continue. Just look at what happened to those who came before you. Karma is a real force and it has one hell of a sting.

Update August-20-2010
Well HELLO 'second-in-a-row' missing blog post from Miss Athena Hollow headed

Remember that page save of the 'demented' rants blog you saw up above, note the date on it, visit it yourself and have a gander at THIS:



Just like the last one, POOF!, it's magically gone.
It has been replaced by a new rant about how she is being unfairly criticized by that facebook group she bolted from when they started checking her story. Yes,... the same facebook group that banned me but as you all know, when a problem comes along,.. I must whip it,.... whip it good,.... sometimes I whip too much. Where others like to bullshit and libel, I kinda punch the head a bit to hard when My monkey tree is being shook. I'd rather be pissed and over angry than bullshitting or manipulating people any day.
SO FUCK OFF once and for all! Maybe if you would just forget I exist and stop obsessing that I and I alone am out here conspiring against you and MAYBE consider that in your travels as a libeling bullshit artist and pseudo porn empire head you just MIGHT have made more people than just lil old me a wee bit ornery.
BTW, We have all seen that other stupidity you post on your blogs. You talk about how you are this incredible and giving porn empress who boosts the careers of so many and does this awe inspiring web design but on the same effin blog you go into how poor and horrible you life is while your out go to the bar, obsess over video games and look for regular work cause you cant make ends meet with porn. Get a fucking real job and take care of your CHILD instead of trying to continue to be one yourself. And it is called a CHILD, not "the kid". Also "passed out" among a situation with a drunken raving aunt and you and your significant other slipping in and out of sleep after a day of jerking around doing nothing IS NOT a state of proper care for your child. YES, I've saved those posts as well.
GET IT?! BACK OFF
These are not the droids you are looking for.

The first HDR images in porn (Alt, mainstream or otherwise) EVER!



After noticing today’s tumblr post for the alt-porn site www.thedangerousdolls.com something profound caught my attention. I was looking at an HDR nude for the first time ever on an alt-porn site.

Link:

http://thedangerousdolls.tumblr.com/post/656901223/the-dangerous-dolls-krystakaos-whats-a-girl-to-do

Model: KrystaKaos
Photographer: 'SoCal'

I immediately wondered if there was any way this could be the first ever on ANY alt-porn site OR even mainstream porn sites for that matter.
Seeing as HDR has been around at least a little while in the industry one would have suspected so.

THE HUNT WAS ON!:

I went through an ocean of Google checks. I did find one photographer who shot a nude model in what he says is HDR but looks rather bland and uninspired.
http://www.modelmayhem.com/po.php?thread_id=340640
The color and light ratios may very well be HDR in that instance but the over all quality is so poor that this could also be simple photoshopping and the set up in general is very poor and un-publishable.
Needless to say, I did not find a corresponding usage in any alt-porn or mainstream site of that set. It’s use on www.modelmayhem.com alone would not qualify.
I then checked Google images for references to HDR in the nude, altporn, porn, alt, and all the likely altporn sites to be capable of using the technology.
I found nothing but ‘experimental’ images for art galleries or projects experimenting in HDR. None of it had been officially published to any adult entertainment site.
I found a tutorial for HDR suggesting it’s application in nude but no execution of that or a publication to any site.

I was left facing a startling conclusion.
www.thedangerousdolls.com has just published the first HDR altporn image! More than that they may have just published the first ever HDR image on ANY porn or adult entertainment site in the altporn or mainstream industries. Even non-adult entertainment has hardly scratched the surface of photographing models in HDR.

HOW COULD THIS BE?!

What is HDR?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_dynamic_range_imaging
It is highly technical so I will be as forgiving as possible with the heavy technical points. For the most part this involves Tone mapping with RAW image files and multiple exposure levels.
An HDR (high dynamic range) image is done a few different ways.

The most popular (and cheap) is to acquire an HDR processing program like ‘Photomatix’ which works best in conjunction with CS4 or 5 or a plug-in app like Topaz Adjust 4 which works in conjunction with a compatible imaging program. With either of these you can upgrade standard images in RAW format to HDR images so long as an appropriate amount of information can be extracted from the original image taken by any conventional high end digital cam. After some tweaking like making multiple exposure versions of the original image or letting the program automate a similar process you get an HDR image.

The more expensive way is to get a SUPER high end DSLR digital cam capable of multi exposure shots (typically from four to nine exposures at each exposure level per shot) which can later recompress in your HDR program like the ones mentioned above.
There are also some programs which claim to be able to expand conventional Jpeg images to RAW and then process them as HDR but I’ve not seen impressive enough results from any of these to nail them down as true or effective means for making HDR images.

Any way you do it, if you play your cards right, you end up with rich, vibrant images that incorporate the complete information of the image in light and color values from every possible exposure point of that image.
Meaning those images can then be mixed in these programs to points that are ultra visual in their representation, surreal or even cartoonish or painted by presets or manual toggling of the levels in color, light and shading (just to name VERY few).
Essentially and by every meaning of the words it is “High Dynamic Range” imaging.
This set that www.thedangerousdolls.com has posted is made up of true HDR images.

I have suggested HDR to adult entertainment websites before and only been scoffed at claiming that the concept is meaningless to their customers who most seem to judge as a drooling pack of jerk happy fanatics. Obviously thedangeorusdolls.com was not that short sighted and the result is everything I would have hoped HDR to be when applied to this realm. These images are artwork. I would want these in print and framed in large scale on a wall. They take the entire industry into a new level of taste, imagery and professionalism.
If XBIZ and AVN can not recognize this in an award or at least industry wide recognition nod then there is just no justice in this industry.

BUT BEFORE WE HAND OUT THE AWARDS

Now this is just a preliminary announcement of what I now believe to be the first true HDR image in the world of online altporn websites and quite possibly the entire industry both alt and mainstream.
If there is any instance of another altporn site having published a set of HDR images BEFORE today’s publication by the www.thedangerousdolls.com please stand up and claim your prize.

***This would have to be a set published BEFORE June 2nd, 2010 to an alt-porn, mainstream porn or otherwise adult entertainment website featuring true HDR images of nude and or pornographic modeling. If there are any other than altporn sites that can claim this it would be more immediate. It would be understandable if maybe a mainstream site has done it but this far I have not found none of those having done it yet either, The field is open for www.thedangerousdolls.com to take it all at this point.***

Until then, and as far as I am concerned, the dolls have it. I commend ‘Dragon’ and ‘Various’ owners of www.thedangerousdolls.com and the Photographer ‘SoCal’ for his stunning images of KrystaKaos.

IT IS OVER!, Corrupt alt-porn owners, defamation, manipualtion and something 'tion' as well. Justice is served from an unlikely hero.

I’ll begin by stating quite clearly that:

I have not represented any website for any reason to any person or for any person to any website for any reason as it has been alleged about me.

There were youtube messages to two individuals Scott Owens (owner of eroticbpm.com) and the owner of the webstie xxxlancer.com are talking about in a defamatory forum post made on the website altporn.net but the content posted about those conversations has been embellished to insinuate things I never said. To the best of my understanding this was done to fit a very obvious need that Scott Owens of Killshot productions and the owner of the xxxlancer.com website have right now. That being to do whatever is necessary for them to distance themselves from this situation with the Altporn.net article they had been contributing too and trying very hard to convince me and several other parties of recently. The same article that the editor at XBIZ Don Parret had stated quite clearly did NOT contain any information that substantiated the claim that the dangerous dolls website was in any way involved in child pornography. Altporn.net had used the XBIZ article to claim that thedangeorusdolls.com had been involved in child porn.
Yet altporn.net published an article with the title:

"The dangerous dolls owners involved in CP (child porn)"


Which was entirely false in light of the facts.

During this debacle Scott Owens, the owner of Eroticbom.com was trying very hard to convince me that this article was true.

I had known Scott Owens for nearly ten years and knew him when he began his first porn website www.raverporn.net. I also knew individuals who worked for the website this defamatory article on Altporn.net was trying to smear.
During the time this article came out I was very agitated with Scott’s stance on the issue and how he claimed to have more damaging information about thedangerousdolls.com and the owner of that website than even what the altporn.net article was saying.

http://s125.photobucket.com/albums/p67/fulcrum9/?action=view¤t=Capturetoday345-26-2010-100428PM.jpg&newest=1

He says quite clearly that;
“one in particular item is out… but its not the end..”

Though even at the time he sent this, it was obvious through source checking that there in fact was no connection between thedangerousdolls.com, child pornography or the insinuation that these businesses that had been involved in any illicit activity were ever in ownership of thedangerousdolls.com
It was very convenient that the altporn.net article had no author listed and Scott has not denied contributing to it. From the message he sent me on eroticbm.com he is obviously relishing in the results of it. Models left thedangerousdolls.com, people were going around freely stating that it was a child porn provider and right after the article came out Scott delivered a very well timed ultimatum to the models not to be involved with DD and his own website until the owners of thedangerousdolls.com, namely the chief owner ‘dragon’, cut off involvement with their billing provider immediately. Which was very detrimental to models who were at that time working with both websites.
Dragon rushed in to a mad panic to end his billing and actually shut down new memberships so the problem would be solved to the satisfaction of Scott Owens and altporn.net . How could he not? He was being pressured under duress to do it and if he stopped one second to try and explain things he got pointed right back to the altporn.net article alleging that he was involved in child porn.
Now just today, after all this infighting and going back and forth and Scott Owens going out of his way to defend all this by libel attacking me, Altporn.net finally pulled down the original article.
Which of course I still have page saves of:

http://s125.photobucket.com/albums/p67/fulcrum9/?action=view¤t=Capturetoday345-26-2010-100428PM.jpg&newest=1

At the time, Altporn.net contended that the title of that article and it’s very first written line did not incriminate the owners of thedangeorusdolls.com in any way.

I'll ask anyone reading this now:

"***your name***involved in CP (child porn)"

Would you NOT consider that an unfair and defamatory claim against you?
(actual child predators, sex offenders and pedophiles need not answer)

In conclusion,

At some point on May-29-2010 between 3pm and 5:20pm Altporn.net removed their entire forum section.

http://s125.photobucket.com/albums/p67/fulcrum9/?action=view¤t=apnforumsgone.jpg
*Notice anything missing on the nav bar?*

This forum had been riddled with several defamatory messages and comments about ‘dragon’, the owner of DD, ‘Various’, another owner of DD and myself. This material had been posted by Scott Owens himself, an individual claiming to be a representative of the xxxlancer.com website (the profile was named ‘xxxlancer’) and two other alt-porn site owners who I do not believe deserve the repercussions of their own actions due to ignorance and quite obviously orchestration from Mr. Owens who has commercial interests with both these individuals. I am sure that if the altporn.net forum will return later, if at all, it will do so with a more closely guarded administration of the content posted by both members and admins.
Seeing as neglect of their own forums and article content began this journey for us all.
Speaking of journeys, I would like to end this one on a positive note.
With ‘Journey’

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=barLaHrtvoM

As a post script to this,
there have been new rumors generated by Mr. Owens and the owner of xxxLancer.com that I had posted the address of the owner of that website (xxxlancer.com) on the forums of EroticBPM.com and altporn.net.
As I mentioned earlier there was a message board flame war going on within the forum sections of these websites. A profile named 'xxxlancer' had been posting and threatening to post my own personal information in machine gun posts across several forums in a cyberstalking effort. So I did a WHOIS lookup on the network solutions service for xxxlancer.com.

The WHOIS lookup page on www.networksolutions.com:

http://www.networksolutions.com/whois/index.jsp

A WHOIS "lookup" is a free, public service that provides you with information about or contact information for a web domain owner.
When you register your domain for a website you can opt to make it private so any requests that are made for the information about ownership can be supplied by a third party that checks and records the information of the requesting party either through email or snail mail service.
Or you can simply leave your own contact information for your WHOIS information.
The owner of xxxlancer.com (until yesterday) had not opted for privacy OR for routing the registration information to a business OR P.O. box.
Instead, this owner of a PORN WEBSITE decided to leave their home address and full name on their WHOIS information.
But I DID NOT post any of that information to any forum.
I simply posted this URL:

http://www.networksolutions.com/whois-search/xxxlancer.com

Which is the WHOIS lookup result for xxxlancer.com
Until May 30, 2010 the address on that WHOIS lookup was not a business, address, not a P.O. box or a privacy process but rather the actual home address and NAME of the owner of that website.

Both Scott Owens and this owner of xxxlancer.com have actually tried to use that this person has a 4 year old child at that address as some kind of defence.

What human being uses their home address to post an open WHOIS lookup on their website when that website deals with pornographic material and they have children of ANY age living in that home?
Furthermore, what business owner of a pornographic website allows their employees to threaten the illicit use of and distribute the personal information of others (business or private) on website forums without expecting that the people they are attacking would not seek out the public listing of that business's information?
The owner of xxxlancer was (for lack of a better word) dumb by using their home address for their WHOIS listing when filing the domain name for this porn site.
When you file for a domain name, you enter an address and contact information. With a P.O. box there are options for hiding the contact name and apparently this person DOES have a P.O. box as it turns out.
Then you either let it ride or you opt for privacy in your WHOIS listing. There are no automatic systems that later change information as was suggested by this person.
Even if so, that still has nothing to do with me. If a WHOIS listing can be auto self changed to list a person's home addy unintentionally then the owner of xxxlancer.com would have a clear complaint case against their domain provider.

I have requested that the owner of xxxlancer.com discontinue any more threatening behavior and they have done so. They have also since corrected the problem with their WHOIS information and employees running around cyber-bullying on website forums.

Scott Owens is once again using another person as a human shield to protect himself from the backfire of the altporn.net article he contributed to.
Mr. Owens KNOWS what he was doing was wrong and the defamation he is spreading about me would require that the owner of xxxlancer.com to be needlessly incriminated and involved any further if I was to begin court action in the matter.
This person was stupid by not properly registering their WHOIS and allowing their employees to be involved in childish cyber-bullying tactics but it does not warrant that they should be criminalized for it. In my opinion it is not even half as bad as the damage caused by this article Scott Owens had sold all these other parties on. I am not concerned with the passengers when the wheel man is driving them all off the cliff.

He has been smart to avoid commenting on the situation openly after his last attempt was removed from the altporn.net forums (along with the entire forum section) but he has persisted in emailing and messaging people defamatory information.
As is today's case:

http://s125.photobucket.com/albums/p67/fulcrum9/?action=view¤t=Capturetoday345-30-2010-33927PM.jpg

Expanded:

http://s125.photobucket.com/albums/p67/fulcrum9/?action=view¤t=Capturetoday345-30-2010-33927PM.jpg

He claims it was personal information about this person.

I know this person from both youtube.com and the forums on eroticpbm.com.
I had already received one message from them about this issue and I advised that if this person did communicate with Mr. Owens on the issue that Scott should be reminded to not continue posting libel about any parties concerned or myself any further.
On eroticbpm.com Scott Owens is currently squatting my profile with a status stamp of 'BANNED' on it, I have requested complete deletion of the account which is my right by the TOS of that site but Mr. Owens has not complied.
He is holding on to any scrap of me he can in a very creepy attempt to contain me in some way.

This is clear defamation and a grounds for court action to that effect.
But again, this involves a number of people who have been needlessly involved as a result of Mr. Owens's poorly crafted trickery.

**** update (June 1, 2010)

On the facebook page for the owner of xxx.lancer's own porn modeling profile I also found this STILL posted June 1, 2010:

http://s125.photobucket.com/albums/p67/fulcrum9/?action=view¤t=Capturetoday346-1-2010-21104PM.jpg&newest=1

This post contains a link to a forum post that was removed from Altporn.net along with the entire forum because of this issue.
Yet this person seems to think that claiming this will still have some kind of veracity.

Continued drama

On June 6th 2010 Altporn.net brought back their forums.
Though the article they did about thedangerousdolls.com was still removed, there were a few references to it and defending it by altporn.net admins in the forums. Every post made by my profile on altporn.net along with the profile itself still remained on the forums as well.
Every single scrap of information that had been removed by the admins at three other websites was now back on altporn.net.
This may be why:


***New information about this issue is updated below.***

The alexa rating for altporn.net shows that the highest activity for the site was during the last month when they posted the thedangerousdolls.com article and then during the increase in forum activity right after. They then dropped to their lowest annual rating when they pulled the article and their forums.
Now that the forums are back their alexa rating is increasing again. This is the same behavior that got them in trouble in the first place but they are going right back to it to maintain profits.
After checking alexa on all the other alt sites who had been trashing the dangerous dolls I found that ALL of them had been losing views and clickstream in very significant numbers for the last three months while the dangerous dolls was the only alt site among ANY I could find that had been gaining and was getting better clickstream from higher traffic sources.
This was a hatchet job from start to finish.
Killshot productions, eroticbom.com, Altporn.net, suicidegirls.com and even godsgirls.com ALL had something to gain by posting libel and defamation about the dangerous dolls. It was a pathetic and hateful smear to try and make money while their websites went down the toilet.


Update, June 2, 2010 !!DONE!!


This was utterly surprising to me that there are actually more people in the world who step outside themselves and go above and beyond to do what is right.
One of the two individuals from youtube.com who's communications with me were used to try and claim that I had contacted models on behalf of altporn sites.
This person came forward to refute the alteration and defamatory use of those messages.
As per this person's request all parties including myself have agreed to respect privacy in this matter. Of course I can not speak for the others.

This kills the last bit of the issue that began with Altporn.net trying to connect a website to child porn and then the co-authors of that article going on a cyberstalking rampage over eight other websites when Altporn.net no longer had their back.
Scott Owens commented so brazenly on the smear piece about me that he was so proud of that because of this card house lie he had constructed, no one would trust me ever again. I would be hated and despised. Ranked an outcast by some exclusive society of the altporn world.
Communications with mainstream and altporn professionals alike during this incident have enlightened me to the fact that I had been existing in a bubble until recently when it came to these "alt-porn" websites. Mr. Owens was NEVER the industry pro he claimed to be and had for some time been violating sacred trusts among other owners and actual industry professionals in order to advance his marketing. Failing progressively as he went. Today he is part of a small group of other alt-porn and pseudo news groups like altporn.net that have banded together like a pack of parasites to feed on the ass of an "alt-porn" franchise model that has lost wind due to corruption, unoriginal concepts and short sighted practices.
In other words, DOOMED.

Now I can get this blog back in gear with some new posts.

So far, outside of a few remaining facebook and twitter posts leading to links that
lead to removed content all the parties involved have capitulated.
Altporn.net requested a take down for a video on my youtube channel with the petition for them to pull defamatory content about thedangerousdolls.com from their website.
Seeing as they have removed all defamatory material requested, I granted their request with a warning that they brush their teeth and respect their elders more in the future. Maybe also consider reporting actual NEWS than trying to favor certain providers while trashing others for profit.

This blog will be condensed and then expanded upon in detail for other upcoming news sources.

For now, it is about time I get some sleep and then back to planning for a VERY well earned vacation driving the up the coastal highways between Salem MA, and the eastern most point of this nation with the most beautiful and wise of all female humans who has helped me more than anything or anyone else through out this stupidity.

What is this moron thinking?! June 7-2010

After everything (the defamation against thedangerousdolls.com and myself) had been wiped clean from google I noticed two tiny links at the bottom of page 1 on google when I cross referenced my former screen names on eroticbpm.com and altporn.net.

Full:



Expanded:



He seems to have posted what he calls a PSA (Public Service Anouncement) yet it is only posted to his exclusive, member only adult website and possibly to altporn.net as well, another member only adult website. I imagine this is something he may have emailed as a PSA yet when you send out PSAs or post them (remember that word "PUBLIC") you have to send copies to ALL parties mentioned in case there is a defamation issue with what ever you are claiming in it. My in box is not showing anything from killshot (AKA, scott owens) and this PSA about me at the moment.
So like my profile on eroticbpm.com and his moronic posts about the defunked youtube messages he is now squatting this from public view, proofing, oversight and lying through his teeth to the captive audiences on altporn.net and his own website.
Xbiz is still standing firm about what apn did with thedangerousdolls.com story and one of Owens's accomplices in the youtube messaging scheme already pulled the plug on this claims by backing out on Owens.
What I found hilarious is that Scott went so far as to claim I had a web based business by using my screen name from Altporn.net (colitisscope) and slapped a 'net.' on it as part of the PSA ruse. Just as inventive as his alterations to the youtube messages but just as ineffective to anyone with n IQ above 30. It is true that I have a web based business which uses a variant of the name colitisscope but as you can see from this screen capture:



The site Owens is talking about never even existed.
What kind of idiot doesn't even check his own bullshit artistry before posting it?

All anyone would have to do is type in that URL and see that there isn't even a website there.
No surprise that this is the same person doing business with a porn web owner who posted their own home address as a public WHOIS look up.




TO ANYONE WHO HAD BEEN BUYING WHAT SCOTT OWENS AND HIS EMPLOYEES HAD CLAIMED ABOUT ME:

I am not mad about this one bit and there will be no reprisals for anyone who re-posted or blogged thinking that any of what had been said about me was true.
I look forward to working with anyone who is in need and honorable in their intentions and I look forward to continuing work with those I have. In light of the facts coming out the damage has been repaired. Actually it has made me quite popular among industry professionals of a much higher caliber than Killshot productions who have been watching this unfold closely.
I could care less if anyone would actually still believe any of it at this point.
At least he wasn't trying to say I was involved in child porn.
Scott was desperate, stupid and thought if he got a model to cry wolf and point a finger, I could be made into a pariah.
What has happened to his own credibility and business since it was proven otherwise is far worse than what ever could have been done to me.




Laughable (July 6, 2010)

So today I notice this:

http://www.xbiz.com/news/news_piece.php?id=122412&mi=all&q=eroticbpm

Which stands to reason since Scott Owens is virtually the number one Altporn site owner who can not keep a good relationship with models who work for him.
They actually have been touting this article as 'Good news' on eroticbpm and their facebook profile.
After ELEVEN YEARS, Scott finally gets around to contracting an exclusive model.
These are the same people who just tried and nearly completed an effort to destroy an entire business with defamation just to get ahead. I'd love to see what kind of agreement this "exclusive contract" is. If it is anything like Eroticbpm's modeling contract or application it was undoubtedly very poorly written, un-notarized and promises more from what the model has to provide rather than what the site does.

Doucherock Bands Part 4, “When doucherockers attack”

Doucherock Bands Part 4, “When doucherockers attack”
Justin La Plante has done correspondence reporting and production for NBC, CNN World, NPR, CW, Public Television and operates the Collidescope Multimedia Co-Op
www.collidescopevisions.com

By Justin La Plante

I expected that it would come as little surprise that at some point along this journey there would be some backlash from either the bands I was critiquing and/or their fans. What I got came as more than a surprise. Rather, it was a completely shocking attack of cyberstalking, harassment and psychotic accusations from what has to be the most douche of all doucherock bands. I can honestly say that all of the major doucherock bands I have reviewed and talked about so far (Disturbed, Creed, Godsmack, Nickelback) I've not heard a peep from.
Meaning they know either one of two profound truths.
1.That they have tougher skin and can take honest criticism and satire for what it is without being even more douchebaggy about it.
2.That they are what they are and they know that arguing it is of little use. How can you argue when your band is stuck in constant fist pumping repeat at NASCAR and WWE/WCW events across America?

One band in particular however has proven themselves to be more of a pack of douchenozzles then all of them put together by crossing the line of egomaniacle bag-rage.
You may remember 'Ink Dot Boy' (AKA, IDB) from part one.
Ink Dot Boy today


The original article on facebook:
http://www.facebook.com/?sk=messages&tid=1277263496631#!/note.php?note_id=407996652221


Part one was also mentioned on a daily post of the www.hotchickswithdouchebags.com (HCWDB) website.
www.hotchickswithdouchebags.com
'HCWDB'

http://hotchickswithdouchebags.com/2010/03/friday-thoughts-and-links-65/#comments

When I sent out initial requests for Doucherock bands for this series I left emails at various labels both major and indie. I got back the usual doucherock suspects (disturbed, nickelback, godsmack, Creed) along with a lot of semi popular and as yet garage band acts.
I did not want to critique garage band acts or local acts. Because there are droves of doucherock acts on the local level you will see at NASCAR events, sports bars and state fair beer tents.
Those people are making money the way doucherock bands SHOULD make money. Playing directly to the people who love them most. Major acts like Nickelback and Disturbed could care less that they are called out for being doucherockers. They make millions doing it and could care less what anyone thinks of the crap they make or how much the masses of inbreeding douchegimps flock to it.
Ink Dot boy represents the worst of both worlds as they are a semi popular group who's lead singer made a living by repeatedly re-branding himself into faker and faker personas, over hyping bad music and sponging from club promoters, ex girlfriends and ex wives in order to one day never again be able to book a club in LA or many places anywhere else for that matter.

I'm getting ahead of myself though. Lets start from the beginning.
It was early last month when I sent out requests for the doucherock series.

Here is a link to the request:

http://www.facebook.com/note.php?saved&&suggest&note_id=335969497221

Inside three days I had more than enough material.
The big names were all there as I expected but I wanted to start with something that screamed “douchebags” that not everyone had already heard about.
Into my lap fell 'Ink Dot Boy'.
IDB
Yes they actually are using this pic in their promos.

A press pack and myspace link of IDB had washed up on the cyber floors of Crustacean records either from an associate label passing it along or directly from the band in a press release via email and/or myspace messaging. It was sent to me by a Crustacean fan on the label's facebook. After checking the band with other labels I found numerous rejections based on their sound and the obvious fake image of the band. Both major and indie labels had had enough of this band.
BTW, Crustacean records does not represent ONE SINGLE doucherock act. Their bands are the best acts the Midwest has to offer and I consider the label a prime authority on taste and talent in the music industry.

Ink Dot Boy was a revelation in doucherock because they are a goth/industrial act, maintain every facet of the douchebag look and mannerisms, their music makes 'disturbed' look talented and they had a trail of bad karma and poor promotional practices leading right up to the tail end of their lead singer, the self proclaimed 'Ink Dot Boy” Andrew Kurtz.
Andrew Kurtz (AKA, Ink Dot Boy) Should be taking his own advice.

Early information about Andrew Kurtz is vague. He is from Boise Idaho, played on the high school football (or so he himself has rumored it) team but failed to attain aspirations for college.
There are unconfirmed stories about him touring Europe and then working as a cowhand and rodeo competitor which I can find no actual sources to establish outside of Kurtz's own claims to fans and friends. A few have mentioned that Kurtz passes off these stories of world travel and a history with the rodeo in order to embellish a rather lack luster period of general post teen slacking off before he decided to become a musician.
Some time after high school and back in Boise (world traveling rodeo clown or no) Andrew Kurtz claims to have married Alexandra Stavrovska (Presov, Slovakia) a piano player and photographic artist. They formed the band 'KUbist Hall'.
KUbist Hall in better days (if ever).

Kubist hall was a terrible band.
http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/kubisthall
Though Alexandra's piano playing is actually quite good and the drum work is impeccable, Andrew's lyrics, voice and the overly contemporary adult rock sound of the band was very dry and uninspired.
KUbist hall enjoyed some reception and acclaim from the novelty of a German female drummer and Slovakian female piano player but eventually fell to a general lack of interest due to the band sucking in general.

A rather gut wrenching look at Kubist Hall in production:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sR7S5UX7vOA
*Note Kurtz's douchebag persona and moronic music theory.*

Though they did not wear rings openly, Kurtz and Stavrovska did live together and until early 2009 Alexandria had been supporting Kurtz and herself while the couple lived in LA trying to promote Ink Dot Boy. After failures in club promotions and several dissatisfied associations with promoters, Kurtz and Stavroska returned to Boise and soon separated. Alexandria then returned to LA and is now a very well received photo artist.

At 30 and back in Boise after his divorce Andrew latched onto a local 21 year old star bucks barista and made her the star of one of the band's latest videos.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZLtZNMF4s3U
From that point on the band has been throwing plenty of female nudity and gratuitous sexual imagery in front of their image and music.
Kurtz and two models on a recent IDB promo.
When the music and the image of the band wont sell, try sex.

After selling off everything in Idaho Kurtz and his new girlfriend/sex token moved to Dallas Texas where they and the band reside now.

Several former associates, fans and some who have worked as promoters for the band have openly voiced complaints about Kurtz's womanizing, cheating, and sponging his way through his music career.
The usage of fake myspace and facebook accounts is rampant in their method of promotion. They bate webgroups/blogs and lure street teams with the promise of money and accompanying the band on tours that never happen.
Shortly after I published part one of Doucherock, I began getting strange friend requests from people I did no know on Myspace and facebook. Then I began getting messages from people directly involved with the band as well as Kurtz himself.
Here are some of those communications:

The following is from a former promoter with ink Dot Boy who contacted me on facebook. This person has asked to remain anonymous sighting that the band and it's “associates” often bully and harass people for speaking poorly of the band.

I read your article about Ink Dot Boy (Kurtz) being a douche rocker. I used to work with him in LA. Definitely the biggest self proclaimed rockstar douche bag I have ever met. Especially since his fame is so minimal.

You used to work with them (Ink Dot Boy)?

Anonymous April 19 at 10:23am
Well he bullied me pretty bad thats why I left, cause I started calling him out on his bullshit and I didn't agree with a lot of things that he was doing. He tried to hide his relationship with his wife, she was from Slovakia. She worked for years saving money and such to support his band. He went thru the money like crazy!!! Living in a big apartment in downtown LA. He uses people big time!! I feel really sorry for the young girl he is using now to heighten his fame. Its disgusting.
I know that he has burned tons of bridges thru out the years, his wife even told me how she didn't have any friends cause of him. He is a total and complete FAKE! When I was out there he was like this blond haired, blue eyed, surfer like rich kid that thought just cause you got tons of tattoos and wore makeup you can be "goth" He would whine all the time about how he couldn't play the "rockstar" role very well.

I will not use your name or describe your sex. Only call you "an individual" source or “Anonymous”

Anonymous April 19 at 10:37am
she (Kurtz's ex wife) is totally out of that situation. I can tell you who he is messing with now. She is only 21, the girl in the newest video with the black Mohawk that is half naked at the end with another girl.
He tried to get all these young kids to help him with promotion and what not, cause he doesn't want to use corporate people. Probably because he was blacklisted thru his old band Kubist Hall. He promises them money and that he is this big star that they can jump on the band wagon with. This band has never played a concert in the 3 or more years he has been doing it. He promised me that when we went on tour that we were going to make tons of money. I knew it was bullshit since he couldn't even get band members or a concert in LA.

Who the fuck are you psychopaths talking about (in reference to the model, I did not know recently who this was until another former IDB promoter told me)? Is this kurtz or florian using yet another dummy account or another drooling ink douche boy fan thinking you might get props with the band for helping them do something so clearly stupid to the rest of the world? This is the fourth attempt to get someone to friend me so you can see my content. I must be on a mutual friend's page. The review from crustacean records with the bands pick was more than enough to get the ball rolling.

if idb was a band. They can't even book in LA due to kurtz's history there. haven't you heard what the guy did to his ex wife?! if anyone could enjoy the poor lyrics and composure of their music it would have to be someone with an IQ below 40.
Its kind of hard to be envious of someone who makes less money, is far less popular and also happens to be a complete douchebag who's fans are such losers they try cyberstalking critics for the band.
you get the golf clap today goomba.

I imagine you have been getting fed from "florian" or another idb drone that you should tell me I'm fucking someone in order to write this. (I'd just found out who they were talking about at this point) which has only fueled the fire seeing that the model they are trying to say I am fucking is yet another girl Kurtz harassed and is trying to smear.

Also their complete lack of dignity in insulting this person and making these psycho paranoid accusations.

I really have never seen anything like it. A band and it's followers getting this riled up over a single critique.
Obviously they are the most douchebag of all doucherock groups I've covered. I've not seen any of Creed or Disturbed's fans or lead singers sending out psycho text messages as of yet.
I latter found that they (Ink Dot Boy and fans) were trying to associate me with a model that the band's lead singer had been harassing for some time after she had regected him. This model is on a mutual friend list on Facebook.
Of course through the degrees of separation one could associate me with virtually anyone on facebook.
That they made this threatening accusation involving another person like that is also quite douchebag of them. It is not only a pathetic and childish display of paranoid animosity but it is plain old fashioned cyber bullying.
It made me suspect that the band had more to hide and after speaking with these former promoters and street team members it was clear that they are up to no good in their promotional schemes.
Defamatory claims against former promoters and club owners that will not book the band, spamming myspace and facebook, fake profiles on social networking groups, bunkum claims of fame and record sales in press releases about the band, fluff pieces written up for publications and webgroups, paid protection from criticism on social networking websites like www.vampirefreaks.com (who locked and actually edited two unfavorable reviews of the band on their sites message boards) and of course directly harassing critics.
Currently the band is trying to recruit a new legion of promoters and pr reps to push the cool aid in the aftermath of another failed season of promotion and re-branding.
Ink Dot Boy is the perfect 'what not to do', example for any band looking to gain a foothold in the music industry on major labels or otherwise.
Though IDB speaks of a lack of trust with major labels they have submissions and fluff work submitted at every single one. Indie labels have always been repulsed by IDB's lack of conscience in marketing and presentation. Which one would think might make them perfect for a major label.
If it were not for how terrible the music was.

Doucherockers of the world as well as talented acts alike. If you take anything from this take the knowledge that even though you may come up mediocre or lack luster, you can always stay out of complete failure by avoiding this kind of behavior. Never let what others say about you make you into a psycho and never compromise yourself or change who you are because you think it will win points with either fans or record labels. The facet of re-invention is not always a bad thing but when you do it solely out of what you think other people will like as apposed to what you feel is right then you are selling out and selling yourself short.

Me Making out with a rabbit puppet.
Doucherock bands part 3 Creed
By
Justin La Plante

I've been getting a bit of static about part 2 of the doucherock series (disturbed) but I have to stand by the laws of doucherock (which I am now inventing and posting below) on this one.

Creed


This issue is dedicated to Creed or as I like to refer to them 'More proof god does not exist'.
Creed is the first major christian rock band who attained this fame by stealth fully including the message of christian faith into their music. Here is their smash douche hit “With arms wide open” from the album “human clay”.

Human Clay by Creed


“Well I just heard the news today
It seems my life is going to change
I closed my eyes, begin to pray
Then tears of joy stream down my face”

***He got the news, drank the cool-aid and packed his bags for Jesus town.

“With arms wide open
Under the sunlight
Welcome to this place
I'll show you everything
With arms wide open
With arms wide open”

***Essentially he is talking about the idolatry of the cross. One of the most self contradicting facets of Christianity seeing as it violates one of the ten commandments.

“Well I don't know if I'm ready
To be the man I have to be
I'll take a breath, I'll take her by my side
We stand in awe, we've created life”

***It seems he is talking about getting his woman pregnant now.

“With arms wide open
Under the sunlight
Welcome to this place
I'll show you everything
With arms wide open
Now everything has changed
I'll show you love
I'll show you everything
With arms wide open
With arms wide open
I'll show you everything ...oh yeah
With arms wide open..wide open”

***The lyrics are a vametous mass that keeps causing me to feel ill the more I read and reflect upon them. One would have to be filled with some kind of profound self delusion (AKA “Christs love”) in order to stomach them.

“If I had just one wish
Only one demand
I hope he's not like me
I hope he understands
That he can take this life
And hold it by the hand
And he can greet the world
With arms wide open...”

***Yes, we all need to be crucified. Starting with Scott Stapp.

“With arms wide open
Under the sunlight
Welcome to this place
I'll show you everything
With arms wide open
Now everything has changed
I'll show you love
I'll show you everything
With arms wide open
With arms wide open
I'll show you everything..oh yeah
With arms wide open....wide open”

The repetition is off the charts with creed. In every song the use of repetition is compounded and mixed with droning chants and revelations of delusion.
A great example of doucherock and christian rock gone wrong. If I was the self contradicting uber narcissist fairy tale ego maniac god described in the Bible, I woud have incinerated these douchebags long before they could ever write a song or commit it to music making me that much more unpopular with people who have an IQ above 40.

The very usage of the name Creed also points out a complete lack of selflessness. While most christian rock bands use names like “for his honor”, the glory and power” or “I want to suck jesus's penis”, creed stamps themselves the end all be all of faith in one word. Making no room for doubt that their message is the only message.
As is with all major self delusional faiths such as Christianity or Islam. Though in many creed songs is sounds as if Stapp is attempting to write Jesus and/or god a very sexual love letter.
Creed has had heavy exposure in every realm of douchebaggery and redneck interests such as WWE and NASCAR as their songs insight a high voltage fist pumping tribute to every WASP'S favorite guy in the sky.
Truly, everything that is wrong with America can be found in the audience at a creed concert.

In early years Creed maintained a very clean cut silk shirt, jeans and boots douche ensemble of dress.
In later years they began trying to emulate disturbed as doucherock fans collect each heavily.

'Dead Girl', review

'Dead Girl' promo


“Dead Girl”
-review By Justin La Plante

This movie is a revelation in zombie flicks. It's 'Stand by me' meets 'dawn of the dead' with a twist of 'brick'. It tells the story of two outcast teen boys who happen upon the animated corpse of a very attractive young woman chained to a table in the boiler room of an abandoned mental institution.
Each of the boys exploits the situation in different ways with devastating and very unhappy results.
It is quite clear from the moment she begins to move in her first scene that the 'dead girl' (Played by actress Jenny Spain) is the actual main character in this movie. Without any speaking parts Jenny projects the entire film into a new dimension. With rhythmic sequences of animalistic body movements ranging from slinky minimal adjustments and twitches to full body thrashing and jugular ripping oral attacks, Her movement and facial expressions are well tailored to suck you into a real experience of sensual terror. It is as if she is channeling Bella Lagosi's Dracula or Boris Karloff's Nosferatu performance. I raise my lighter to it.

The only disappointment in this movie would be the performance of Andrew DiPalma who plays an overly stereotypical high school jock bully. The character was far too unbelievable and the actor himself lacked focus for the role. Though Dipalma has been overly typecast as douchebag/frat/bully/jock in other work and it could be overdue frustration leaking out.
This did supplement the satisfaction in seeing his character's eventual demise in the film though.

This movie is not to be missed.

Jenny Spain

Definitely look for Jenny Spain in any of her upcoming roles (there will be more).
Currently she is in production on "Trust" (working title) a horror about reality shows.
Shiloh Fernandez (male lead) is a hit or miss in his career at this point. He could be the next Johnny Depp or he could be the next Andrew DiPalma. He is finishing production on 'The girl with the red riding hood' a new spin on the old fairy tale. I'm on the fence about it considering it is directed by Catherine Hardwicke (the rube who helped curse us with 'Twilight'). Hopefully 'The girl with the red riding hood' will lac the same vapid mediocrity and lack luster dialogue as 'Twilight'.
