Wikipedia is The MTV of Information! By James DeWeaver #JamesDeWeaver

Wikipedia is the Information equivalent to MTV or because they promote useless vanilla garbage for starters, often baseless second hand information on those so-called "Famous People" written by others who have know idea what the hell their even talking about or let alone even doing!

"Famous" people who Wikipedia has all kinds of sh*t about, and in doing so promote Mass Murders, Psychopathic & Sociopathic torture/murders like Leonard Lake & Charles Ng just as an example.

 EVERY possible Criminal & reprobate who has made ANY kind of publicity for doing all kinds of horrendous and destructive acts upon Mankind or individuals seems to have a place in Wikipedia and at the same time they (Wikipedia) enjoy removing and NEVER ALLOWING an Artist, that's right "AN ARTIST" & their page to remain as it had been for three years until I said something truthful about Jimmy Wales, for those who do not know, he's the head BUTTMUNCH at Wikipedia and so what "little jimmy" wants "little jimmy" gets, a complete cock-arse if you ask me, i'd not be bothered at all if he were to drop off his mortal coil tomorrow, GOOD RIDDANCE!

So Wikipedia, a named that is unfortunately known by everyone will only be taken down when Anonymous want it to be taken down, and that would be permanent, Wikipedia seems to think that just because they're "Wikipedia" that they can step on and attempt to damage reputations of ANYONE it wants to, (i personally couldn't give a flying fu*k one way or the other quite frankly) well that's NOT alway's going to be it's place in the future i can assure you.

Organizations which promote the Death & Destruction of Humanity & the Environment will have NO PLACE in the reality of the future!

Wikipedia can continue to promote the most vicious and EVIL of our kind in their sick little website, and slowly but surely it will drop off the radar! It won't be fu*k'in soon enough for me getting rid of such a biased and death promoting, bloodlust promoting and truly EVIL & twisted website run by a group of complete AS*HOLES led by a dude i wouldn't piss on even if he were on fire, "Jimmy Wales is lower than the filthiest animals sh*t"!!- you can quote me there!

They (Wikipedia) say "Well gee (like some dumb-as*), he hasn't got into the Commercial Media so he must not be an Artist of Merit!

Well what a bunch of SH*T! Commercial Media is OWNED & RUN by the very people who DON'T want the Public too know ANYHING about me in the first PLACE!

Commercial Media like ALL the MURDOCH faeces here in Australia doesn't want to hear what I HAVE TO SAY, fu*k no, they are MY mortal enemies on Earth, these people don't want people like myself around full stop, as an Artist free to speak , I am a "threat" as they see it to their continued "status quo" of the non-stop destruction of the World's Environments and Native people's, while in the First World's your "Lucky" to become a "Chattel" Slave to a Corporation.................God, how awful!

"Is everyone really going to allow this to happen to their children"?

Endlessly feed these Corporation the future generations and FOR WHAT!

The entire planet will be WELL & TRULY FU*KED by then and what are we all gonna say and do then !

They've (the Australian Media) have continuously and relentlessly engaged in a battle with me which has lasted many years now in which i have had publicity stymied or completely ignored or withdrawn in some cases,  these nefarious Organizations contact other Media outlets and say nothing to me about it, only when i don't hear back from these once interested parties that i realize that i have been effectively censored AGAIN and AGAIN and AGAIN!

People get mis-information about me, saying I'm an Anarchist, What a load of fresh dog sh*T that is, I'm an ARTIST, NOT Anarchist for those of you who may read this and are not informed, Yes, Anarchist does start with an A and end with a T but I'm not one of these!

The End for NOW!

Julia Ramadan - Prince's Lawyer, and TOTAL SH*THEAD!

Julia Ramadan, a name NOBODY is familiar with,  seems to be a person who's position has got to her head, being a Lawyer for Controversy Music,....HA!

Julia Ramadan is apparently some internet "TROLLING" Lawyer/Publicist who works for Controversy Music, which is Prince's company, who seems to get her kicks from going onto Youtube and looking for ANYONE that might have a Prince video on it then reporting it to Youtube which Youtube then gives a RED flag against that user and their Channel, three red flags and your GONE!

Well i know a bloke who put up "Money don't matter 2night" by Prince, i saw the clip, and before it got anymore than 50 hits, apparently from what i understand this Julia Ramadan from Controversy Music informed Youtube about this Prince video AND the Channel it was on and then had it removed, & gave the bloke a RED flag for good measure, NO Warning, plenty of other material of Prince's on-line including Youtube so why target this bloke , who i might add has some of the BEST [HD] stuff on Youtube today!

All i have to say to Lawyers who do this sort of work for a living is your complete and utter losers who'd jump off a bridge probably if you were told to as well!

Conformist Corporate Lawyers, NOTHING WORSE, who do NOTHING else but TROLL on Youtube, thinking their doing a good job for the people who own them, Julia Ramadan is clearly a conformist slave to Prince and Controversy Music and who'll stop at nothing apparently the ruthless bitch!

Apparently Julia is un-aware of the Supreme Court ruling on the Copyright Act 1976 Section 107 which allows "fair use" in instances where it's for comment only umongst other provisional need's like Scholarship,Criticism, news, reporting,teaching and research, in these cases "fair use" IS PERMITTED by Copyright Statute that might otherwise be infringing!

While the video was up i was told it had been digitally recorded MULTIPLE times so people like Julia Ramadan will have fun trying to stop these from appearing ALL AROUND THE WORLD!

People like Julia Ramadan can go straight to HELL!

Many of my readers will be familiar with my blog "96 Hrs. to L.A. and back", and i'm sorry to have to tell you that there will be no more due to the fact i sold the rights to the story and it effectively is NO LONGER mine!

 I was as surprised as anyone when i received an e-mail inquiring if i would "sell my Blog", well atleast the story "96 Hrs. to L.A. and back",i thought sure, i'd have no problem with that,.......... i get paid and they get to do what they want with the original.

So for people to think oppurtunies don't exist i'm proof to tell you they do, i NEVER had any intention other than to put the story down, and then i did, someone was impressed enough to send me a cool five figure check,(after a one month negotiating period) AWESOME!

ALL the 96 Hrs. to L.A. and back episodes which are on my blog will stay!

If you want to read it from the beginning, here's the link to save you some time

This doesn't mean i will stop blogging because i won't, but i thought it would be a good idea now that the deals been closed to let my readers know what happened!

Should i have prints available for purchase on my website?

        Should i or should i not have prints available for sale on my website?

This is a question i ask of anyone who not only reads my blogs, but also people who have gone out of their way and committed some time to really look at my Artworks, not just spend two seconds glancing over them, which for me is a total waste of time for the viewer, i mean what's the point of not really looking, maybe look from another perspective at what is becoming very gradually a lost Art,this Art won't be around in the future!

Please check out the one question, YES or NO on below and take one second of your time to help me become more informed on my audience.

Strangled to death by his own invention!

Thomas Midgley, born May 18,1889 on College Hill, Beaverfalls Pennsylvania.

"Who the hell is he you might ask"?, and "How he has affected every person on the planet alive now and in the indefinite future for generations to come",................I'll explain.

Midgley, a man who never knew the damage he was directly linked to, as in his mind he was "helping" mankind by creating a fuel additive known then as Tetraethyl lead and Bromine in 1921, for the reasons of stopping the knock in the early combustion motors of cars and trucks, and was so toxic it not only poisoned him, but is responsible for atleast eleven horrible deaths of the unfortunate workers who were poisoned making this deathly chemical cocktail for the General Motors Corporation it goes on.

After his first known mass killings work at Delco, a Corporate criminal organization in 1928, Midgley was too smart to lose, so was then transferred to Frigidaire, a subsidiary of General Motors Conglomerate, where Midgley's EVIL genius mind devised ANOTHER, even greater contaminent to mankind, I speak of Dichlorodifloromethane, which is basically a mixture of Chlorine,Fluorine and Carbon, or as we all know it now as CFC's, which the diabolical General Motors trademarked as Freon, and is a common component of air conditioners, insect repellants, and it's primary use in the first place, refrigerators!

Freon displaces oxygen in the atmoshere, and will asphyxiate you in your sleep and you'd never know about it,............but G.M. had this knowledge and did NOTHING, and would of done nothing, WHY?,...because it made sh*tloads of money for them and their shareholders, greedy bastards!

It wasn't until a semi-ban in America and other first world countries mandated it no longer be used in their populations, in the third world, this is STILL in common use today!

Freon, and General Motors are directly to blame, no one else has destroyed everyone's quality of life, and continually destroy's our PLANET's Ozone layer beyond repair permanently reducing mankinds protection from the sun, thus reducing mankinds protection from skin cancers, ultra -violet radiation to our eyes, causing mutations in human genes(DNA), it weakens our immune systems, and plays havoc on reproduction systems in human being's and animals on the WHOLE PLANET!

This homicidal reprobate wrote a very uninformed and heavily censored paper for General Motors, where he cavalierly claimed the ozone layer could be manipulated to control the entire planets climate and atmoshere!What an INSANE joke, Did he think he was God? absoleutly NOT, he was a MANIAC masquerading as a Scientist and his employers G.M.were, and still are as culpable for the irreverseable damage to humankind and OUR Planet Earth as anyone, G.M.'s shareholders especially then, and to this very day, and maybe soon will need to pay back all their ill gotten gains or face jail, not that it will do any good now!

Fortunately for ALL of us Karma caught up with this Evil genius on Nov 2 1944, when he was strangled to death ha ha by one of his own inventions! Thomas had contracted polio in 1940, so he had designed a pulley mechanism which he used to get around his home,............ it did to him what i wished had happened years earlier because if it had, our planet and all its inhabitants would all be better off, of course G.M. wouldn't have been but who really gives a shit about a Corporation which never gave two shits about humankind, they just wanted Money and more money, rapacious greed without foresight or thought of the future inhabitants of the planet!

Midgley, a truly horrible man, lower than any filthy animals turd, a person indirectly responsible for killing and maming through DNA damage MORE people than Ghengis Khan, Alexander the Great, the Roman Empire, the Roman Catholic Church, the Ottoman Empire ,the British Empire from 1066 to present day, Hernan Cortez and all the known Conquistadors, Every despotic Roman Caesar, every Belgian leader from the 15th. century to present day, Henry Ford, Josef Stalin, Adolf Hitler, Chairman Mao, David and Charles Koch, and every American President from John Adams to present day put together!

The laudation of this ass-wipe is criminal, and these organizations which hail this madman should be ashamed of their ill-guided praise for him!

National Inventors Hall of Fame.(Shame)Dow chemical,where Midgley was V.P., Ethyl-Dow chemical Co.1933-40, DuPont,V.P. of Kinetic Chemicals 1930-33, Electrolux, V.P.Frigidaire 1928-30, & the American Association for The Advancement of Science, amongst many others.

MTV should get off the air!

                                  To be read after " I was totally pilled out and stoned again" for continuity.

  I remember NOT remembering much of the limo trip home, but i do remember MTV being on during the ride, the big LCD TV in the limo somehow got turned on and tuned into it, and for one i have to say what a complete and utter rubbish program it has become since my first memories of it's early one!

 In my opinion, MTV should get off the air, their time has well and truly run its course, not to mention the damage this Corporate Music mouthpiece has done to the creativity and independence of Artist's and Musicians around the globe who weren't Corporate sell-outs, their creativity and freedom would NOT be hemmed in by the restrictions both personally and Artistically and no amount of money would or could alter their ideas or ideals! For these bands unwilling to add to the dysfunction of an already corrupt and money driven machine like the "music industry", selling out was never an option, hell, they never even got the chance too sell out,........ the music and record industry had well and truly been all stiched up in America by the mid eighties by the Corporations and their tin-earred spreadsheet brained non creative pencil pushing accountants!

  I've often heard people say to me how music nowadays is...................... well fu*ked, sure there maybe talented people out there still and i'm sure as fu*k NOT saying there aren't, it's just pre MTV, the musicians didn't have to fit a certain social "ideal" in appearance, and talent was the first prerequisite for them being on the radio or whatever, we're talking well and truly long before the Internet as we know it today, just look at that manufactured Corporate "boy band" One Direction, five members, each with a completely different  and specific tailored and manipulated "image" for maximum identification and differention with the rest of the cast of this musical version just like The Village People did.

I don't know what or how much "Branded" sh*t One Direction has out there but i can only imagine it would be enough to fill the new Dallas Cowboys football stadium several times over!

 Just look at each one of them, just sickening, these pre-pubescent boys being held up to the world as role models of future manhood across the known universe, that's right, for these young twerps are being idolised worshipped and imitated all around the world even as i write this..........................scary eh!

 I'm SOOOOOO fu*k'in glad i'm not a teenager nowadays, with hideous and repulsive programs on television like GLEE, and MTV constantly playing a rotation of "girly-boys" wanting to be the epitome some kind of totally gay pop star, aswell as their programs like "Sixteen and pregnant"? like WTF is this sh*t doing on fu*k'in MTV, MUSIC TELEVISION was what MTV was, not some kind of program dishing out parenting advice and tips for teenagers dumb enough or stupid enough to be having ANYKIND of sex WITHOUT protection.....................are they fuck'in stupid or what?

  MTV's role should be to steer well clear of this, for this enters the realm of dictating personal religious and societal ideals onto people who never asked for it, and now can't watch MTV because it's become another mouthpiece for the religious right to impose their beliefs onto others once it airs, MTV has not got either the mandate or the approval of the society or parents to put to air such religious swill, stuff that is so bad and damaging to the American AND Australian youth turning them into the dumbest of the dumb! Real life walking talking imbeciles, learning about life through a television and MTV, what part of society are these people going to add to?

 Jails and the Military of course, this is where many of the social outcasts and poor end up, can't exist in "mainstream" culture so what options are left, well in America there are none, you've got the Military or the Military, the stratification of the population through forms of class distinction and education really do limit the options one has if one's born poor in American today and in the last thirty five years or so......................... well since Reagan and his regime took over in nineteen eighty i'll leave it at that!

I was totally pilled out and stoned again!

       To be read after "Playboy and Hef the Monument  to American culture" for continuity in - 96hrs. to L.A. and back -

  Well that had been fun, meeting Hef finally and watching him at his work, this was something like watching DaVinci i'm sure, yes two completely different types of expertise and genius but UNDOUBTEDLY BOTH will be remembered throughout the future annuls of history.

 Sonya and Meredith had been waiting just outside for me while i'd been in my meeting, and when i exited, they both came up and playfully kissed me on the cheek and told me we were heading "home" now for the night well and truly, i'd seen Hef and we'd had fun at the party earlier on and met a whole new array of personalities and new contacts what more could i have possibly wanted now except to go back and unwind with these two! 

 We head for the main door exit, i look at my watch and it's alittle past four, we leave the main house proper with not a soul in sight, the music is non-existent and the security guards are the only ones around, although the BIG Maybach is still here which could only mean one thing,..................Snoop Dogg is still somewhere on the property!

 I decide to let better judgement take course here and forget about catching up with Snoop tonight that's for sure, sh*t.................... if i hadn't just come half-way around the world i'd of surely been ready to see the sun come up that's for fu*k'in sure, as it was though, i was NOT in that condition and my best and only option then was to split and head home A.S.A.P.!

 Otis was there just where we left him earlier, this guy was good, real professional, and i was so glad that none of us had to drive, probably because to drive safely it's normally a prerequisite too "NOT BE DRUG EFFECTED", well that sure as SH*T wasn't any of us here and now, and the funny thing was after we got back into the limo to leave, without either of them on top of me this time, i look and see Sonya starting to roll up one of her "trumpet" doobies out of the "Charlie Sheen", fu*k she must of read my mind, this girl was good, i'd been "sting'in" for a joint as soon as i had left the building, this was fun sh*t , you could smoke your guts out and it never really wiped ya out, or it didn't wipe me out atleast, just tasty flavourful buds!

 It wasn't long before i had handed to me a "specimen" of a doobie, decidely "top shelf" these "trumpet" doobies look just like something you'd get at the Amsterdam Coffee houses, i was just totally taken back at her dexterity in being able to do such perfect doobies in an almost totally pilled out and stoned frame of mind, ...........just a wonder!

 I lit this little bastard up as fast as i can and take one "BIG" toke on it and pass it on to Sonya, i held it in for five seconds or so and before i even blow it all out i feel this cooling rush flowing around my brain, just amazing,..............,., i'm just fu*ked as i melt backwards into the cushions, Sonya and Meredith see this and both come on either side of me and sit right next to me, they looked worried so i gave them a two thumbs up sign which set a look of relief across their faces, and like the drug freaks we all had become,  by the time our trip home was over these two were laying flat out with just the doobies hang'in out their mouths, could barely move, they looked like they were fu*ked out on opium, totally toe down the both of them, made me laugh i can tell ya!

 I'll be posting another chapter of my "96hrs. to L.A. and back" later on tonight my time, in about eight or nine hours or so so stay tuned!

Playboy and Hef the "Monument" of American culture.

                       To be read after "Snoop Dogg was nowhere in sight" for continuity in - 96 hrs. to L.A. and back-

  Sonya,..............Meredith, would you mind, i'd like to talk to James privately, and on that they both exited leaving us alone. Please........... have a seat for me James and i'll just finish this up as we speak.

 "Have ya had some fun tonight James"?,........... "fun, would be an under-statement" i reply, "this whole day full stop is beyond my wildest dreams" i added. "Good, good, we were hoping the house and party would be suitable for your visit to see us",..........i was more than suited with the way i'd been treated as a guest i add, "the house and the Art in it are incredible let alone the cars" i relay to him, "did you like shooting the "Casull" he asks, " that .454 Casull was a real kicker"!,............ "yeah...laughing, it looked like you need some practice with that "beast"! That's funny, he referred to it as a beast just like i had when i had been firing it down in the shooting range.

 "So what DON'T you know about what i've been up to since i arrived at the house" i ask,   "hey it's a security measure,......... don't worry about it, have you not been able to do whatever you've wanted to do since your arrival",................ , he was right about that that's for sure, he may of known my location but what i was doing was info he didn't have which was fine with me,............i didn't really want him to know anyway as any right minded person would of wanted.

 "Come here, .... i want you to have a look at the next issue and tell me what you think" so i slowly walk over to where it was layed out, my torpidity of earlier on had vanished and i was virtually back to "normal", "wow,.... this looks sensational" was what first came out and i meant it,  as i carefully view what would be on the magazine stands soon enough!

 "He starting laughing, quite hard actually "i haven't seen a reaction as good as that in years James.....(laughing) you crack me up" continuing to laugh, i guess i was sightly more "out of it" than i had ever realized but i didn't care as i was having a good time and that was all that was ever asked of me the whole time i was staying there with him!

 My opinion was something that of course wasn't in the slightest bit required, i like to think he was being inclusive, which to me was as an Artist, was a very kind and appreciated gesture of goodwill and friendship, what more this great man could've done for me while i was there is nothing, he had all the bases covered that's for sure!

 I was fairly sure by the way he was talking to me about my "companions" Sonya and Meredith that he'd only wished he'd been my age, as these two were as i had found out already were "special" and he instinctively knew this, sh*t,....when you've met and seen nude as many babes as Hef had in his "lifetime",... let's just say he had "impeccable taste in the female of the species".

 " I'm having a few people around this afternoon for an "after-party" James can i expect to see you there"?, "sure, i'm gonna need to leave and get some shut eye now though as i'm feeeling the "jet-lag" pretty hardcore now" i reply, "good, .......i'm off soon myself and just want to make sure you'll be there so we can talk some business", "the three of us wouldn't miss it" i reply, "O.K. James.........................see ya tomorrow" as his head bowed down to the glow table and the  hand with the magnifying glass went up, i stood momentarily in the shadows of the brightly lit room before exiting and watched this living monument at what someday would never ever exist, this moment captured in time and in my mind will last longer than he.

"I dazed out when i did this and the next thing i know he asks "was there anything else James"? ................"Oh,............oh no,no, i was just in a daydream" i tell him as i turn and head for the door for the final time leaving silently.
