Eh, nothing’s ever gonna come of that audition, I wager, but it doesn’t mean I can’t share the audio-only of that Karaoke I did. There ya go. Maybe I’ll do more later. I’ve had some encouragement to do so as of late. Thinking about it. Will practice and record differently in the future, I’m sure.
This, everyone, is Danny Lopez, aka “DannyWiiU”, “DannySNES”, “dannydsi”, and a bunch of other names involving Nintendo consoles. He’s a creep whose Twitter feed consists ENTIRELY of asking women to burp for him and make videos of them burping. Plus trying to get 15-year old actress Joey King to unblock him from Instagram and Vine. Make of THAT what you will.
Recently, he threatened to rape Lindsay Ellis, rape all female producers for Channel Awesome/Chez Apocalypse/TGWTG, and kill her boyfriend (ToddInTheShadows) and their dog Kali. He is currently under investigation by the NYPD for these threats, and Lindsay has blocked him on Twitter.
Danny is not very clever, since he thinks that someone blocking him means he can continue to make these threats. He is mistaken. I’ve screencapped these for the attention of lindsayetumbls, partly because I don’t know how to submit them to her, but also as a signal boost. If you see him make any threats to anyone, screencap them, post them to Lindsay, and move on. These are all being used in a case against him.
Oh! But wait! He hasn’t stopped there!
I have to assume at this point he’s doing it out of spite. Regardless, at this point, we treat this as an actual legitimate threat. Updating this so @lindsayetumbls has more material, but if obscuruslupa, marzgurl, nashscribblings, atopfourthwall, kylekallgren, or any other TGWTG producer can reblog this, it would be greatly appreciated.
Updated: new threats made against Kaylyn Dicksion, aka Marzgurl.
I have my own personal screenshots that I’ve kept and sent to Lindsay so that she can actually do something legal with them, but basically yes, he has also threatened to rape me and kill my fiance, Josh. So, you know, just to further show that it’s a pretty serious issue.
Friends, should you see any certain someones making threats of sexual violence against me, do *NOT* respond to him. Take a screencap, block him, send me the screencap. Just let him make his threats into the void. Every single one is being sent to the police. Don’t worry; he’ll get his.
lmao whats with you and "misunderstandings" from good intentions. This Jack Thompson thing is just like you getting rejected at Velfarre
Well, that might be a slightly different story. I think the misunderstandings were greatly different from all parties in that one, including the people I asked about it later. So… who knows? It is something that seems to happen to me pretty frequently, I guess. My intentions often do get misunderstood.
A new religious statue in the town of Davidson, N.C., is unlike anything you might see in church.
The statue depicts Jesus as a vagrant sleeping on a park bench. St. Alban’s Episcopal Church installed the homeless Jesus statue on its property in the middle of an upscale neighborhood filled with well-kept townhomes.
Jesus is huddled under a blanket with his face and hands obscured; only the crucifixion wounds on his uncovered feet give him away.
The reaction was immediate. Some loved it; some didn’t.
"One woman from the neighborhood actually called police the first time she drove by," says David Boraks, editor of DavidsonNews.net. "She thought it was an actual homeless person."
That’s right. Somebody called the cops on Jesus.
"Somebody called the cops on Jesus."
To be fair, Biblically anyway, that’s EXACTLY what already happened.
Wait when did you interact with Jack "Video Games Ruined My Life" Thompson and why was I not informed of this fact?
Gather around, children. It’s story time.
It was 2009, the year that the first ScrewAttack Gaming Convention was announced. My friends and I were super excited because Texas, up until this point, did not have any especially exciting video game conventions. What further baited many attendees was the announcement of ex-Florida lawyer Jack Thompson as a guest. He was supposed to do a couple of main events. One was to be a debate with another lawyer who was pro-gaming. The other was to be a Q&A session where the questions would NOT be previously screened. I was excited about this concept. However, I feared the worst. After all, even though video gamers don’t want people thinking that games make them violent, let’s be real. How often have you seen people just blindly wish for bad things to happen to Jack Thompson because of his actions against the gaming community? Clearly, nobody would ACTUALLY try to kill Thompson, but it doesn’t mean that people haven’t SAID that they want to. That’s the Internet for you. But especially because the Q&A would not be screened ahead of time, I feared that some gamers would in fact not know how to leave that inappropriateness on the Internet.
And thus, some friends of mine and myself decided to make a video directed at the ScrewAttack community who would be attending the event. The idea was to suggest to them that they should ask smart questions, and not ask the stupid, insulting questions that would only prove Thompson’s opinions of gamers to be true. So we made a video called “Questions NOT To Ask Jack Thompson at SGC”. The result was polarizing, to be sure. I mean, it wasn’t especially mature. We listed mostly questions that just talked about butts. Like, really, butts. We asked, “Are you a butt?” And, “Are you a butt?” in Spanish. And, “We’re forming a Rock Band group. Can you play the butt?” One that apparently was a source of discontent was, “Is it common for people in your religion to act like butts?” Some people thought it was funny, others didn’t. But we lead off both at the beginning and at the end that we DIDN’T want questions like this asked of Thompson, and that we wanted the best representations of gamers in that Q&A room. Honestly, despite the joke in the middle, the idea was actually quite well-intended. So, one night, after I’d finished putting it together, I uploaded the video to YouTube and then posted it in the blogs section of the ScrewAttack web site. Furthermore, I wrote a blog article that listed many things that Jack Thompson had accomplished in his career, both good and bad. This was to educate people on who Jack Thompson is so that they could better formulate questions to him at the event. I really thought, in the long run, I was being helpful.
What I didn’t expect was all the stuff I’d end up finding out the next morning. I found members of ScrewAttack freaking out and asking people not to make blogs or videos about Jack Thompson. I was already panicked, because that’s just what I had done.
And then I checked my E-mail. In fact, it was actually an E-mail that I practically never use, so I’m not sure how or why he got THAT address, but he did… Jack Thompson E-mailed me. And also addressed the E-mail to members of the ScrewAttack staff and also to GamePolitics.com. In the E-mail he seemed to gravely mistake my video as being something produced by ScrewAttack themselves, because he couldn’t discern public community blogs from actual content updates. Also, I’d imagine he found it because he had to have been constantly looking for updates about himself all night. The video hadn’t even been up for 12 hours. (By the way, I suggest you guys read the two GamePolitics articles on the whole situation - http://gamepolitics.com/2009/06/30/jack-thompson-says-he-won039t-appear-july-4th-debate-sgc-09 and http://gamepolitics.com/2009/07/01/jack-thompson-debate-back-sgc09
Thompson was furious about the video and my educational blog, saying the blog was full of lies and misconceptions, and interpreted it as an attack on him, rather than the clear suggestion of NOT behaving that stupidly toward him. He basically threatened to sue me, ScrewAttack, or both, as well as attempting to back out of appearing at SGC all together. (I can also tell you he loved using the word “fascists” over and over again.) This E-mail communication went back and forth between all parties all morning long, with the staff of ScrewAttack trying to make clear that I was just an individual acting on my own and not representing their staff. Furthermore, Thompson revealed to all of us just how much he was paid to attend the event, which I felt really un-privy to, and that it was knowledge I really shouldn’t have been exposed to. Also, I don’t know why Thompson thought he could back out of SGC, as he was under contract to appear. The E-mails were completely flagrant in their heated anger using words and vocabulary that seemed to have nothing to do with the topics at hand, not to mention showing his gross misunderstanding of how the Internet and Internet communities function. Furthermore, he seemed quite intensely displeased with the fact that he was asked to only write a one- to two-sentence introduction of himself for the Q&A (his finalized intro was MILES longer and seemed more like a misrepresentation of himself).
The follow-up E-mail I gave to him was more for the sake of the life of SGC and the enjoyment of the attendees than it was for Thompson’s sake. I was furious that I was dragged into something so ridiculous, but I was also embarrassed and ashamed, thinking that I had completely ruined this event for a large number of people. So, with that in mind, I replied. I apologized profusely, confirmed once again that I was not associated with ScrewAttack, and made the good will movement to remove the blogs (although I only locked my video on YouTube - it still exists, I just haven’t made it public in all these years). As for the educational blog I had written, I told him that I had only taken my facts from what appeared to be reputable sources, and I asked him to help me correct any information about him that might have been inaccurate. I told him that not only would I remove the blogs, but I would also not attend SGC at all, if that would give him more comfort.
His response was actually quite polite, and he found me to be quite nice. And despite me asking him to offer up corrections to my article, he actually did not tell me what pieces of information were wrong, so I have to assume that everything I wrote actually was, in fact, accurate. Thompson graciously asked that I do in fact come to the con and visit him at the Q&A. I didn’t do that, that was kind of a weird thing that I couldn’t imagine doing. But, with all that said, it seemed like Thompson’s rage had been quelled, and he would in fact still attend SGC, and the Q&A would go on.
Maybe one day I’ll unlock the video on my channel again. I dunno. Heck, I fear that writing all this out will unleash his wrath once again. If so, psh, I really have nothing to hide. I still have all the E-mail logs. I’m pretty sure I could defend myself.
Okay, that’s my story. The end.
what has your time interacting with jack Thompson taught you?
That even the most innocent of intentions can be blown massively out of proportion by someone insane enough to go looking for problems where there aren’t any. I hope to never run into such ludicrous issues with any individual ever again as long as I live.
#hailhydra seems to be a real popular hastag. Thoughts?
Well, both Captain America and this week’s episode of Agents of SHIELD prove to be a pretty good reason why. I’m sure it’ll get old eventually.
