Aisha v. FBI
Robert S. Mueller
In light of what happened last time in the Aisha v. Madonna case, the great incivility I was met with and the manner in which my human rights and Constitutional rights were vilely trampled, in violation of the law, I am going to disclose all items concerning the case on this website to let you the public view and decide, with the hope it leads to greater government accountability and transparency (as Obama promised the world). The following are a list of updates thus far, since the filing of the case on August 31, 2009.
The case number for the Aisha v. FBI lawsuit is 09-22574-CIV-MARTINEZ-BROWN. The clerk forgot to stamp the case number on the lawsuit the day it was filed.
The judge is Jose Martinez. The magistrate judge is Steven Brown (the same magistrate judge from the 2005 Aisha v. Madonna case).
On September 1, 2009, the day after the case was filed, the judge issued a nine page order stating he wants a “Scheduling Conference” meeting between both parties click here
In the aforementioned judicial order regarding the “Scheduling Conference” the judge also requested a “Certificate of Interest” be filed by each side. I filed my “Certificate of Interest” a few weeks ago click here
I sent a copy of the 11 page “Scheduling Conference” order, in compliance with the judge’s aforementioned request, along with a cover letter, to the FBI’s lawyer click here
The three defendants Robert Mueller, The FBI and DOJ were served on September 15, 2009 and as they are a government agency, they have 60 days to respond, as opposed to the standard 20 click here
I filed a motion to correct to reflect a few minor errors (spelling of a name ect.) click here
Here is the mailing receipt showing confirmation of President Obama/White House receiving my letter and an advance draft of the Aisha v. FBI lawsuit click here.
I did not wish to write to Obama about this subject, but Robert Mueller and the FBI’s severe criminal negligence, left me no choice, as my life has been placed in danger. Repeated incidents of severe harassment that began increasing in frequency and becoming more hostile, clearly illustrates Madonna and co. are escalating their criminal and violent commissioned misconduct towards me, building up to something very bad.
Enough is enough. I haven’t done anything to these people, don’t know them and want nothing to do with them. I do not wish to end up dead like Michael Jackson and Sam Cooke, because a certain set of people are trying to steal my Copyrighted Catalog. What a disgrace those thieves are, going to such sick, evil extremes to steal from innocent people.
I recently filed a formal complaint with the DOJ Inspector General, regarding Mueller and co.’s misconduct in my case, as the Department of Justice’s website, states one is to do so under said circumstances.
Singer Cheryl Cole of Girls Aloud and Simon Cowell on his show X-Factor
Regarding the ongoing infringements, Sony still leads the pack with the most instances of criminal copyright infringement.
Recent incidents of criminal copyright infringement include “Happy” by Leona Lewis via Syco(Simon Cowell)/Sony Music.
The video for “Bad Boys” by Alexandra Burke via Syco(Simon Cowell)/Sony Music, with Bryan Barber criminally taking credit and payment for my preexisting copyright, Syco passed to him.
“Fight For This Love” by Simon Cowell’s “X-Factor” co-host Cheryl Cole, with Steve Kipner, Andre Merritt and Wayne Wilkins criminally taking credit and payment for my preexisting copyright, Syco and co. passed to them.
And other new infringing items by Chris Brown (Sony) and his girlfriend Rihanna, who continue to steal from the Copyrighted Catalog.
Madonna’s latest single “Celebration” is also a criminal copyright infringement of a preexisting song in my Copyrighted Catalog, of the same name, which has been copyrighted for years.
PLEASE BOYCOTT ALL THE AFOREMENTIONED ARTISTS AND SONY
The illegal hacking into my computers by Madonna’s hackers at Digilink that is also of a very malicious nature, to not only snoop on the contents of my computers, but to damage and destroy the local copy of my websites in bids at blocking them from being updated six days a week, continues unabated.
This is amazingly occurring in spite of the aforementioned FBI lawsuit and the agency’s alleged pledge on their website regarding “preventing crime.” Apparently the sick Hollywood stars in the case, can say whatever garbage pops out of their illiterate, thieving mouths and onto their vile websites, but the Constitution and international human rights charters do not apply to me, via the right to having free speech and freed press.
There was also a vile, unlawful incident of harassment and terrorization geared towards my mother by a Kabbalah affiliate (Madonna’s cult) as retaliation for me filing the FBI lawsuit. I am going to enter it into the case and post it to the site. When you read about what transpired, it is going to disgust and appall you. My mother nearly had a heart attack due to it and ended up in the hospital on September 30, 2009. She has since been released. She has since been released from the hospital.
As previously mentioned, on August 31, 2009, there was an incident at the Federal courthouse, via a red string bracelet wearing Kabbalah member and felon, named Alexis A. Palme, who followed me into said courthouse (his photo ID is on file, as one must show it to enter the building), after being sent to intimidate and browbeat me, on federal property (a felonious no-no), into not filing the FBI lawsuit, disclosing Madonna and Kabbalah’s sick misconduct (which I filed anyway).
As stated in the August 31, 2009 lawsuit, Aisha v. The FBI, Madonna and members of her depraved, disgraceful Kabbalah cult, such as television writer/producer, Russell Davies (Hollywood’s “Queer as Folk” and the BBC’s “Doctor Who” and “Torchwood”) not only infringed my PREEXISTING copyrights, but violated my privacy as well and that of my family and friends, using it as the basis for select episodes of the BBC programs “Torchwood” and “Doctor Who.”
For more on that, here is an excerpt from the August 31, 2009 lawsuit, Aisha v. The FBI et al, relevant to this article:
24. Madonna then spread her invasive madness to her label affiliate BBC in London where she lived (BBC’s DVDs are distributed by Madonna’s Warner Bros). The BBC is familiar with Aisha’s family, having worked with her dad and aunt. Previously, in 2004, the BBC called Aisha’s dad, renowned musicologist and disc jockey, Vaughn “Bunny” Goodison, in Jamaica over the telephone, for an interview on the passing of his esteemed, lifelong friend and music legend, 72-year-old, Clement Dodd. On another occasion, the BBC telephoned Aisha’s dad for comment on the passing of famous charity worker, 87-year-old, Sister Mary Ignatius Davies, who was also a good friend of the family. These interviews were carried on BBC radio and on their websites. Aisha’s aunt, Jamaica’s award winning, highly rated, poet laureate, Lorna Goodison, had also done pleasant radio and print interviews with the BBC. Therefore, the family had maintained a good relationship with the BBC, but Madonna, driven by ill-will and hatred, resenting the famous arts family, due to Aisha’s very valuable, groundbreaking Copyrighted Catalog she covets and Aisha’s refusal to respond to her correspondences, viciously sponsored a Kabbalah styled case of gross invasion of privacy and copyright infringement, through BBC employees and Kabbalah members, Russell Davies and Billie Piper (Madonna’s protégé), aimed at vindictively targeting and maligning the award winning family. The family at no time did anything to Madonna, Davies or Piper, not knowing any of them, yet acting in concert with Madonna, they began to place items from Aisha’s preexisting Copyrighted Catalog and astonishingly her personal life as well, in his BBC scripts.
25. Davies infringed Aisha’s copyrights for select episodes of the BBC shows “Doctor Who” and “Torchwood” and additionally, included Aisha’s personal, identifying information unique to her, in his scripts. These items were obtained through hacking by the staff of Madonna.com. Davies, who has visited Aisha’s official websites, before and after the misconduct transpired, as attested by Traffic Facts site statistics software, has followed Madonna’s lead and taken broadcasting to an unprecedented low in Britain for the “Children of Earth” five part series on the “Torchwood” program he writes for. The “Children of Earth” broadcast not only includes items from preexisting, protected items from Aisha’s computers, using it for the main storyline of the 5 part miniseries, it also includes Aisha’s mother’s name “MILLIE” as a character, a variation of AISHA’s name in the script as a character named “MISHA”, a look-alike character that is the spitting image of Aisha’s sister, casting the character as a girl who is maliciously exploited and thrown in prison, the name CLEMENT mcDOnalD, a variation of the name CLEMENT DODD, appears in the script as an elderly character (CLEMENT DODD is Aisha’s aforementioned godmother’s husband, who invented reggae music and signed Bob Marley to his first record deal). There is also a character named MR. DEKKER, which is the real name of one of CLEMENT DODD’s legendary, award winning, international reggae recording colleagues and Aisha’s dad’s late friend, MR. DESMOND DEKKER. The CLEMENT and DEKKER names were cast as psychotic, despised, crazy characters running from aliens, which is disrespectful to the memory of the two, real, beloved, legendary Jamaican national heroes in the music field, which the names were distastefully taken from, in a racist manner by Russell Davies and Madonna’s Kabbalah. Other invasive items that infringe Aisha’s preexisting copyrights were included in select episodes of Russell Davies’ show “Doctor Who.” …
27. Other members of Madonna’s Kabbalah such as Sacha Baron Cohen, have been outed using real people for characters in TV shows and movies, such as “Ali G” being based on BBC radio disc jockey Tim Westwood and 2009’s Austrian character “Bruno” being illegally based on Austrian TV personality Alfons Haider. In 2009, Madonna’s partner and Kabbalah member, Jerry Bruckheimer was also sued for perversely basing a defamatory episode of “CSI” on a real live couple that owns a Los Angeles real estate firm, Scott and Melinda Tamkin, with the show using their real names and lives for the broadcast without permission, but defaming them as reckless people participating in sexual bondage, pornography, drunkenness and murder, in similar conduct to what Aisha had formally accused Bruckheimer of in her 2005 lawsuit against Madonna.
Since the filing of the lawsuit several weeks ago, I have discovered my teenage godbrother’s privacy and that of his mother, who live in South Florida in America, were violated during the case, as he, his mother and I, exchange emails very often and speak on the phone regularly, which was illegally wiretapped Anthony Pellicano style (Madonna’s private investigator, whom I gave the FBI detailed information about in 2005 and he was later arrested and convicted on wiretapping charges – see lawsuit for more information).
During one of the many hacks into my computer, which were traced back to Digilink, who is the web hosting company for Madonna’s official website Madonna.com, not only was my very valuable preexisting Copyrighted Catalog copied and then infringed by Madonna and her cohorts in Hollywood, my emails, both business and personal, were illegally copied, as mentioned in the lawsuit.
As stated in the lawsuit and mentioned above in the excerpt, Madonna’s Kabbalah member, homosexual Russell Davies (and his “Doctor Who” actress, Madonna protégé and Kabbalah cult member, Billie Piper) infringed preexisting copyrights belonging to me, for select episodes of “Torchwood” and “Doctor Who” and additionally included items in the script, such as the names of my family members and friends in the “Children Of Earth” 5-part miniseries on “Torchwood.”
Recently, I saw a bio page for the BBC/E4 program “Skins.” The homosexual father and son team of Bryan Elsley and Jamie Brittain, who are the writers and creators of the extremely dysfunctional and distasteful teen show “Skins” was mentioned in conjunction with Madonna’s Kabbalah member Russell Davies. The article stated Bryan Elsley and Jamie Brittain used to work for Russell Davies. They are also Davies’ BBC co-workers.
Now, imagine my horror and repulsion, when I scrolled down the character list for the show “Skins” and see my godbrother’s name “JJ Jones” listed as a character (his first name is John, but his family and friends call him “JJ”).
Imagine my horror again, when I read about the character and realize said character not only has my godbrother’s name, mimicking the sick conduct Madonna/Davies did to my family, but also infringes his image and likeness as well. This infringing character was created when my godbrother was 17-years-old. He is now 19.
Things the character on “Skins” has in common with my godbrother “JJ Jones”:
1. The name “JJ Jones”
2. 17-years of age
3. Wears braces
4. Grew his hair out a bit (his mom kept commenting on it, as she wanted him to cut it)
5. Lives with his mom a single parent
6. A very smart student
7. Hangs out often with his two best friends
8. Has a penchant for drinking Tropicana (an American, Florida brand of fruit juice that amazingly appears in a British show)
How does the BBC explain, how people connected to Madonna via Kabbalah, not only wound up in criminal possession of an illegally made copy of my Copyrighted Catalog, infringing items from it via using them without permission, but said characters in the infringing programs, now mysteriously have my mother’s name MILLIE, a variation of my name AISHA (“MISHA“), a look alike character that looks a great deal like my sister, the name my of my godmother’s husband who invented reggae music CLEMENT DODD (turned into the variant name “CLEMENT mcDOnalD“) and his colleague, the late reggae legend, DESMOND DEKKER‘s name used as “MR. DEKKER” in the programming (Note: My dad interviewed Desmond Dekker’s family on his radio show, listened to by millions around the world, shortly before Russell Davies did this invasive madness) and now my godbrother’s name, image and likeness, appears along with the other infringements, as characters penned by these same writers, Russell Davies, Bryan Elsley and Jamie Brittain.
Let’s not forget, prior to this, the BBC called my dad, a renowned musicologist, twice in Jamaica for interviews on famous public figures that are friends of the family. I kept wondering how they got his number. They also interviewed my aunt, an award winning author, Lorna Goodison, prior to all this as well.
Therefore, the BBC does know my family. Not to mention, the BBC has come up in my website stats numerous times, before and after these incidents regarding Russell Davies, Bryan Elsley and Jamie Brittain transpired.
It’s bad enough for Madonna and co. to violate my privacy, but while their invasiveness was going on, she and her comrades at the BBC, invaded the privacy of my sister and godbrother, who were minors at the time this unlawful activity began. That is absolutely criminal.
I am also of the belief, they found out what my sister looks like and based the aforementioned “Torchwood” character on her (“Lois” from Torchwood’s “Children of Earth), via photos I had taken of her at the airport, that I emailed to her in Jamaica, after I extracted them from the card of my digital camera.
“Lois” from Torchwood’s “Children of Earth” looks like my sister. I asked my mom and another relative to look at the picture and tell me what they think and they said she does look like her (except, my sister usually has her hair straight – however, in the photos that I took of her at the airport and emailed to her, she had the front of her hair braided):
Violating the privacy of minors is a very serious crime. Turning two minors, that are private citizens, into characters on TV, at the request of a sick, devilish pop star, Madonna, invading innocent people’s privacy and harassing others, as she is psychopathic and obsessed out of her non-singing mind, is disgusting and nasty.
Russell Davies, Bryan Elsley and Jamie Brittain, have also added other very defamatory and sick items to the characters lives, based on my sister and godbrother, that are more than enough grounds for criminal charges and a lawsuit.
Once again, Madonna and co. have gone too far. The worst part in all this is, we are innocent people that have nothing to do with Madonna or her lunatic Kabbalah cult members like Davies.
And I promise you, all that are involved in committing this foul, nasty misconduct on those shows, that criminally invaded the privacy of minors, will see the inside of a prison cell before this is all over. You have my word on it.
Do, pray tell, what did my young sister and godbrother do to you? They are two good, decent, hardworking kids that make great grades in school and are trying to live their lives.
How did they deserve for a group of vile, despicable, perverted lunatics to invade their privacy and beam their lives, image, likeness and in my godbrother’s case, his actual name, around the world (his mom’s distinct last name that is different from his, was also used for a Russell Davies’ TV character on “Torchwood”).
Do stand up like men, albeit cowardly homosexual men, obsessed with underage boys and girls – and tell the world what my young sister and godbrother, who do not even know you at all, nor do I, did to you that they deserve this criminal nastiness and invasiveness you’ve done in conjunction with your fellow Kabbalah cult member Madonna. You must be so proud of yourselves spying on and picking on underage youths, you perverts.
Really, what if I took the low road, as Madonna has done once again and cast a character in one of my scripts with her daughter’s name, writing that the 12-year-old girl is to be dressed like an underage prostitute, trying to be sexy for the camera. Oh wait, Madonna has done that to her daughter already for her latest video, trying to shock people for attention.
Regarding, Russell Davies, Bryan Elsley and Jamie Brittain, what if I pen a script, casting your respective parents’ names, image and likeness, as characters that molest kids and pee on them in the woods, as singer Elton John was accused of doing, by the Sun Newspaper UK. How would you feel about that.
I can get their names off Wikipedia if you’d like (and knowing Wikipedia, there is a 99% probability the names would be wrong, anyway).
But I wouldn’t do something like that. Because at the end of the day, one has to ask one’s self, what kind of sick people do things like that, you know, as you have done to my innocent family and I, who’ve done you no harm.
Once again, if the shiftless, useless, corrupt FBI had done their jobs from 2005, when they first received the case, those depraved animals could not have taken things to such sick levels, causing irreparable damage to innocent people, including minors, as mentioned above.
And the FBI wonders why I have nothing positive to write about them. Take a good look at that mess, as two young people have now been harmed, because you corruptly decided to let a foul, vile, dirty old pop star that audiences don’t even care about anymore, run loose with this madness, committing crime after crime, against innocent people, so she and Hollywood could criminally rip me off, as my Copyrighted Catalog is very valuable.
Then again, I shouldn’t be surprised that the FBI doesn’t care about kids, as it was widely reported, the FBI told the parents of missing children to buzz off.
You call that law enforcement. You are such unmitigated failures at what you do. Hands down, the worst law enforcement agency ever.
Sony chairman, Howard Stringer, is hanging on, but his employees are not, jumping ship to get away from his madness…and forthcoming criminal charges. First BMG left, now Ericsson wants out.
Sony Ericsson USA boss, Najmi Jarwala, quit his job this week at the crumbling company. This marks the third Sony division head that has quit in the last month.
The Sony electronics and Sony IPL CEOs also quit their respective jobs. Sony is suffering massive sales declines and losses in every area of trade, far worse than all of their competitors. Hmm I wonder why. God doesn’t like ugly and neither does the product buying public.
I have every right to be angry regarding this questionable company. Their conduct towards me has been predatory, invasive and illegal.
A few years ago, they invited me to Sony (in writing). I did not go.
Shortly after, Sony started spying into my computer via an item they sent me as an unsolicited gift (contained backdoor computer trojan). Sony was sued in 2005 by U.S. state attorneys and consumer groups for similar misconduct in the DRM scandal.
In 2005, Sony illegally dove headfirst into my Copyrighted Catalog without permission, that contains 12,000 songs, 300 movie scripts and short stories, 15 book manuscripts, 200 music video treatments, 500 photographs, 150 photo treatments, a perfume line and clothing line. They illegally passed it around to Sony’s music and film artists and writers, who knowingly infringed my Copyrights and routinely visit my websites (before and after the infringements occurred). They criminally received an illegally made copy of my Copyrighted Catalog, procured through hacking commissioned by Madonna, whose lawyer, Robert Jacobs of Mannat Phelps, is also in charge of Sony’s music catalog (Madonna has a side distribution deal with Sony). I later met Jacobs at a legal case management meeting, when he came up to me and bizarrely started shaking my hands and trying to strike up a conversation.
Sony is the same company that previously ripped off my godmother’s husband, Clement Coxsonne Dodd, who invented ska and reggae music and signed Bob Marley and many others to record deals. Sony infringed his copyrighted music as well, which he had to sue them regarding.
Sony has been watching me and my work for years, with very ill intentions. They are predators that have broken the law at my expense, to the point it made me physically ill.
These people have been preying on me, circling me like sharks and vultures, when I had no intention of joining any of their companies for any reason. Their conduct towards me has been so ugly, unseemly, unprovoked and uncalled for.
I have every right to be angry and feel violated, as much of their conduct crossed into illegal territory for which they deserve imprisonment.
Sony Ericsson takes a merciless beating
Published March 24, 2009, 12:17 PM – First the joint venture predicted a huge loss for its upcoming earnings call, then it lost its North American leader. What’s next?…
On Friday, the joint venture announced that it could post a loss of between €340-390 million for the first quarter of 2009…the company’s presence in the smartphone category remains weak.
Yesterday, Sony Ericsson announced that Najmi Jarwala, President of Sony Ericsson USA and the head of the North American division, would be leaving at the end of this month to “pursue other career opportunities.” …
Further fueling this speculation were the rumors that wireless hardware company Ericsson was looking to get out of the joint venture.
One thing is certain, if Sony Ericsson’s losses actually exceed the €390 million the company warned, this will not be the last bad news we hear from the company this month.
I Think That Was A Diss
Newcomer actress Blake Lively is trying to distance herself from comparisons to socialite Paris Hilton. Through her actions, Paris has come to symbolize excess, debauchery and vanity.
Last month, Paris and Britney Spears topped a poll in Australia for the celebrities youngsters like least. Paris and Lindsay Lohan have consistently won negative polls in America as well.
There is a lesson to be learned in that. Just because you have it, meaning fame and some money, doesn’t mean you should flaunt it.
No, I’m not referring to the public being envious, as most stars believe in their jaded little worlds. You may be surprised to learn, many members of the public don’t want to be like certain stars.
If you party your life away, have run-ins with the law and engage in acts of public lewdness, people will think that’s all there is to you. Look what you’ve given them as a reference point.
The sad thing is there are people in Hollywood encouraging young stars in the mainstream to behave in an inappropriate manner for attention and so-called free publicity, which is terrible advice. That free publicity comes at a price when said stars’ names and lives are destroyed.
One should want to be appropriately recognized for one’s work, through the correct avenues, not because you behave in a terrible manner for the paparazzi.
Promiscuity is encouraged as well. Then these girls get saddled with the image of being harlots. Who needs that. Not to mention, so many stars have STDs because of the constant stream of sex partners.
It sets a terrible example for young kids who end up emulating them to terrible results.
Blake Lively: it’s stupid to compare me to Paris Hilton
“I don’t know her, but I don’t like being compared to anyone by somebody who doesn’t know me. I’m my own person. I don’t go to clubs, I don’t party, I don’t dance on tables and I don’t like sex tapes.”
The Scarlett Letter – Girlfriend Is Losing Her Mind
More Proof That Hollywood Is Nuts
Hollyweird has struck again. I believe the Spanish call it loco. Actress Scarlett Johansson stunned the press and public by saying, “I’m engaged to Barack Obama.” Yes and Lil Kim is engaged to John McCain (she’d probably give him a heart attack).
Seriously, yes, Scarlett Johansson really said that she is engaged to Obama. Scary, I know, because, well, he’s married and running for president.
Johansson emailed him once, and received a response from one of his aides, Reggie Love, relayed from Obama, telling her thank you.
Barack Obama and his wife Michelle
However, it is being said Scarlett told a lot of people, and by a lot of people I mean the press, that she and Obama regularly email each other and she gives him advice. Advice on what? What tie to wear with what shirt? Couldn’t be on politics.
Note to Hollywood: remember how you guys messed up the last election for the Democrats. Yes, feel the flashback.
Michelle Obama: she said what?
Emailing someone once or even a couple times does not constitute a relationship. Why say the following when you know he is a.) married and b.) running for office:
“I am engaged … to Barack Obama. My heart belongs to Barack, and that is who I am currently, finally, engaged to. Yes.”
Barack Obama’s response was:
According to Obama, Johansson is lying about trading lengthy e-mail exchanges. “She sent one email to Reggie, who forwarded it to me,” Obama said, referring to his 26-year-old personal assistant, Reggie Love. “I write saying, ‘thank you Scarlett for doing what you do,’ and suddenly we have this email relationship.”
UPDATE: Groan. A reader suggests, “I did not… have… textual relations with that woman, Miss Johansson.”
Hollywood Steals More People’s Copyrights Again
Judd Aptow A Repeat Offender
The 2007 Universal “everything is on fire” Pictures movie “Knocked Up” starring Katherine Heigl is the subject of a copyright infringement lawsuit filed last year.
In the lawsuit, an author, Rebecca Eckler, contends her preexisting copyrighted 2004 book “Knocked Up: Confessions of a Hip Mother-To Be” was infringed, down to the book cover. There are overwhelming similarities between the two and knowing Hollywood, I wouldn’t put it past them to do this.
The copyright infringing piece of garbage “You Don’t Mess with the Zohan”
I believe her, as the so-called writer of the movie Knocked Up, Judd Aptow, is a co-writer of the forthcoming rip off film “You Don’t Mess With Zohan” which is also chock full of criminal copyright infringement and sick references. The film stars Adam Sandler, who also claims to have co-written it. Yea, right.
These losers clearly can’t do a movie without stealing someone else’s work, which is illegal. And another thing, what kind of man steals from a woman.
Hit Movie “Knocked Up” With a Lawsuit
June 6, 2007, 5:03 pm – Apatow (pictured) and Universal Studios have been sued for copyright infringement, reports TMZ.com. Here’s the complaint.
Rebecca Eckler (pictured) claims that when she was shopping around the movie rights to her 2004 book “Knocked Up” she learned of Apatow’s project.
The script making the rounds, she alleges, had a picture of a martini glass with a pacifier around the stem — the same as on the cover of her book.
She says that the movie incorporates substantial portions of her memoir, about her accidentally getting pregnant the night of her engagement party. She says the main female character in “Knocked Up” is an up-and-coming television reporter; the main character in her book is an up-and-coming newspaper reporter.

Universal’s Lots, Film And Music Vault Go Up In Flames
Um, is this fire month in the entertainment industry. First, 50 Cent’s multi-million dollar house his ex-girlfriend was living in with their son, is suspiciously burned to the ground, and now this.
Citizens of downtown Los Angeles woke up to, as one witness put it, “a mushroom cloud” of fire and smoke, billowing from a Sodom and Gomorrah Hollywood studio.
The Universal lot was on fire. The equivalent of two city blocks consumed by a raging fire that took firefighters 12 hours to put out.
No one was killed in the blaze, but thousands of original movie reels and music recordings, plus a few film sets such as those for Back To The Future and King Kong, were destroyed in the fire.
me to the fireman: I’ll pay you $5 bucks if you toss American Dreamz back into the fire
Universal, the makers of the films Miami Vice, the sacrilegious Bruce Almighty and the copyright infringing American Dreamz, and home to thieving artists like Jay-Z and Rihanna, saw the fire destroy 40,000 – 50,000 movie film reels (the fire men saved a couple hundred) and thousands of music masters from classic film soundtracks and modern recordings (Universal Music).
The mere fact that the president of Universal, Ron Meyer, who is one of the top supporters, financially and otherwise, of convicted felon, private investigator Anthony Pellicano, stated they have “duplicates” says the original film reels spanning several decades were destroyed in the fire.
As most people know, you can’t replace an original. Music masters are also one of a kind originals from which CDs and albums are made.
It’s a real shame the set for the cruddy rip off film American Dreamz didn’t burn to a crisp, but they had probably dismantled it many months ago, anyway. Um, I mean, sorry for your loss.
For the record, I was in Miami when the fire happened, therefore it wasn’t me.
Hollywood actress Sharon Stone
However, regarding the fire in Hollywood, applying the philosopher Sharon Stone’s words and reasoning, “is that karma – when you’re not nice that the bad things happen to you Hollywood?” Hmmm (sarcasm).
Fire at Universal Studios destroys sets, videos
The streetscape that burned recently served as a backdrop in such films as “Bruce Almighty” and television shows including “Monk,” “Crossing Jordan” and “House,” said NBC Universal spokeswoman Cindy Gardner.
Meyer estimated there were 40,000 to 50,000 videos and film reels in a vault that burned but said duplicates were stored in a different location. Firefighters managed to recover hundreds of titles.
The videos included every film that Universal has produced and footage from television series including “Miami Vice” and “I Love Lucy.”
Universal Blaze Burns Musical History
It looks like more was damaged or destroyed in today’s Universal Studios fire than anyone previously thought.
I’ve learned that Universal Music, which is a completely separate company and owned by Vivendi (which owns 20% of NBC Universal), rents space in the huge video vault housed on the studio lot. But one source tells me that,
As a consequence, inside the video vault that was billowing thick black smoke were 1000’s of original Decca, MCA, ABC recording masters from the last century including a wide range of music from Bing Crosby and the Andrew Sisters to Judy Garland and The Carpenters.
“This is a tremendous loss in music history. A very sad day indeed. It’s too bad they saved the videos that they have backups on instead of the master recordings in which they do not, although they may not have had a choice since the fire had already engulfed much of the music side of the vault,” a source just told me.
