Gary Has A New Firm.

Ever since the The Life fiasco, I've been keeping tabs on Gary Waldman. This morning, Google Alerts sent me a link to a page on LinkedIn. It seems Gary has a new business.

Here's a crop of a screen capture:
Curiously, he still has a LinkedIn page for "Wilton Theater, Inc." Me, I have one LinkedIn page, and it includes all the companies I've worked for. Gary has two, and neither mentions the other, or his past employment. Interesting.

Of course, the next step is obvious: I Googled "Irvin & Arthur" to find his company's website. That led me to the LinkedIn page, and a YouTube video of some people clowning around on a subway. So I Googled "Irvin Arthur theatre" and that led me to a listing for Irvin Arthur Associates, a theatrical agent in New York.

Now we're getting somewhere! Hmm. There's no website link in the listing.

GOOGLE: irvin arthur associates

And that leads Park Avenue Talent, where Mr. Arthur is Senior Vice President.

From his company bio:
Prior to his induction, Irvin and his wife, Sandy, owned and operated Irvin Arthur Associates in Beverly Hills, CA. Their clients included Steve Allen, Peggy Lee, Jim Carrey, Bill Maher, Ellen DeGeneres, Mort Sahl and many of the bright young comedians on the horizon. Since joining Park Avenue Talent, Ltd., Irvin has brought clients aboard such as Loston Harris, Jane Condon, Barbara Carroll, Euan Morton, Dave Frishberg, Mort Sahl and Dick Gregory.
Very impressive! But as far as I can see, this has nothing to do with Gary Waldman.

I guess it's just a wild coincidence that his new company has a name similar to a defunct agency that represented a lot of high-end talent. I'd call and ask how he came up with new name, but Gary seems to be under the impression that I'm persecuting him.

So anyway, heads-up! Gary has a new company.

    You are an imbecile.

  2. Gary-
    You're the one who got the story wrong: we basically confirmed that you had nothing to do with the Irvin Arthur, the well-known theatrical agent, although your company has a name that by amazing coincidence is nearly identical. It's curious to see that on your website, you are now claiming that the confusion might be causing people to call you for bookings. Or maybe it's sarcasm, and you're really implying it's ridiculous because no one at all is calling you.

    Which, frankly, we believe to be the case.

    But thank you for clarifying the origin of the company, and for clearing up the mystery of your LinkedIn pages. Oh, and for giving us the correct name to research in the Missouri court system. Much appreciated!

  3. Did anyone ever tell you that you "talk too much."

    You confirmed nothing... you simply invited suspicion based on the name of my dogs. I DO understand English.

    Leave me alone. You're starting to sound creepy.
    I really don't wish to correspond with creepy imbeciles. Go away, fool.

  4. Did anyone ever tell you that you "talk too much."

    Nope. Mostly, people ask me to say more. Specifically, they keep asking me to write more about you. That's after they ask me if I know why you haven't been run out of town on a rail.

    You confirmed nothing...

    Wait, are you saying that I'm wrong, and that it's not a coincidence that you started a company that sounded a lot like that of a major theatrical agent? You really were capitalizing on Irving Arthur's name? Here I thought I was quashing an ugly rumor!

    I really don't wish to correspond with creepy imbeciles. Go away, fool.

    Well, you came here and left the comment, Gary. You could have just ignored the whole thing, but instead, you've added fuel to the fire. Again.

    It seems to me that the creepy imbecile who talks too much is the one who makes comments that draw more negative attention to his past failed business ventures.

    But hey, what do I know? I haven't stranded any actors without pay, anywhere, ever. I guess that is a black mark on my 25 year career in theatre that I will have to bear.

    As always, thanks for commenting!

  5. Neither have I. See, we have something in common!

    For the next person who asks, tell them nothing has happened to me because I haven't done anything wrong. The only crime on record with anyone in Florida with my name on it refers to the TV that was stolen from me.

    I have never heard of Mr. Arthur Irvin or Irvin Arthur (can't recall the gent you referred to) nor have I found any link to this "person," though I admit I haven't tried very hard. Arthur and Irvin are two of my dogs. That is where the connections begin and end with me.

    I have no idea why I keep answering you except out of, well "morbid" curiosity. Each time I post to your blog I can't wait to see how you twist what I say into something mysterious or ill-intentioned. You should really work for Fox News.

    This time you began with a REALLY, REALLY stupid story and you are ending with one. Good gosh; I'm really not very interesting am I?

    I'm shocked that you've left my third dog alone! Maybe it's because he's still a puppy. I'll let the little guy know what to expect. OH, I have a parakeet too! Go get 'er Mr. Investigative Reporter!

    Too bad you and I will never become friends. You'd be shocked at what a nice guy I happen to be. Nah, you would never notice... you would be too busy going through my medicine cabinets.

    Will you leave me alone, now? Please.

  6. For the next person who asks, tell them nothing has happened to me because I haven't done anything wrong.

    Well, no one believes that but you, Jamison, and your friends. Certainly, there's a large number of actors who feel you've wronged them, as do a number of your former business associates.

    Maybe you haven't broken any laws. Maybe no one in authority has taken a close enough look at you. Or maybe you found loopholes big enough to live int. But you've done wrong.

    You'd be shocked at what a nice guy I happen to be.

    I'm sure you're personable: you'd have to be, to keep luring people into working for you. And believe it or not, I know people who consider you a friend, and who tell me what a nice guy you are. I have even met exactly one person who says they'd work for you again; as long as it was on an AEA contract.

    But "nice" people don't fly people across the country to do shows, and then fail to pay them. "Nice" people try to avoid bringing harm, instead of shrugging it off and saying "It's not me, it's the company," when they are the ones running that company.

    No, you are not innocent, and you are not nice.

    And you're not the first personable fellow to love dogs, either.

    Really? So you're saying you finally paid the casts of THE LIFE and I WRITE THE SONGS the money you owed them? I'll check in with them to confirm that.

  9. "Too bad you and I will never become friends. You'd be shocked at what a nice guy I happen to be. Nah, you would never notice... you would be too busy going through my medicine cabinets."

    Since you're such a nice guy, can I finally get paid for the work I did on "I Write the Songs"? You know, that ghastly production from 2007? Because you owe me over $2000.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Sure! Give me a second, and I'll write a few hundred checks for $1000's made out to Mr.Anonymous. Whomever "Mr. or Ms. Anonymous" or some other made up name I owe money to, send me an invoice, clearly show me how and why I owe you money and where all of these Mr. & Mrs. Anonymous's live.

    Is anybody really falling for this?

    Please don't answer. I won't see it. I have been offered an incredible opportunity out of state (thank heaven's... S. Florida is TRULY evil), I don't even live there anymore and have NO PLANS TO EVER COME BACK. No I was not "run out of town on a rail" because #1) we are not living in a 'Spaghetti Western' and #2) I didn't do anything to warrant leaving except that I abhor producing theater in such a horrible place.

    My experience, qualifications, 44 years of back-breaking hard work and THE TRUTH, (not made up comments from anonymous people on blogs) is all anyone who means anything in the real world cares about...

    South Florida, take your pompous, mediocre, audience-hating, free-money DONATE, DONATE,DONATE attitudes and float out to sea!

    I'm gone. Go pick on someone as little as you.

    Signing off forever with my FULL NAME!

  11. Good-bye, Gary. You will not be missed in South Florida. Here's hoping prospective new partners think to do a google search before trusting you with access to finances.

  12. Do you honestly think that the internet is only available in Florida? You are all taken for fools. No one cares what you have to say and every REAL entertainment business person has at least as much stupidity written on these useless blogs as I do. GROW UP! Your forum is the new, digital version of the tabloids that printed useless nonsense in the last century.

    Do you truly believe that what you say is taken seriously by anyone of true importance? Are you telling me that you don't publish this site with your tongue firmly planted in your cheek?

    Read the real stuff. I have worked with movie stars, US Senators, major, major recording artists, concert artist legends and scores of entertainment business people that don't even know that the Broward Center exists or that people generally don't retire to Miami Beach anymore.

    The ONE time a REAL news organization published words resembling your own they were sued and lost. It was so blatantly obvious and WRONG when someone made the mistake of printing any of the nonsense that you surmise to be the truth. You write what you hear in bars and call it news. It is shameful that the "news" is now a collection of rumors written by anonymous nobodies who have nothing to lose and get their rocks off without assuming any responsibility for what they "print."

    I'M SAYING IT LOUD AND CLEAR, DO NOT TWIST MY WORDS: "I AM NOT SUING ANYONE FOR ANYTHING NOR THREATENING ANYONE FOR ANYTHING." I could not care less.

    You and those whom have written about me on your 'blog' have chosen to make me a spit wall for all of your frustrations. Sad for what free speech is supposed to be for. Sad that I, nor anyone with a conscience would never attempt to stop you because you are free to speak as you wish. To abuse that freedom as you do is truly disgusting.

    There are dozens of genuine professionals in south Florida with whom I am in constant contact and likely will be for the rest of my life. I won't be missed by you and the hoards of gossip fools that don't even know me, nor the few people who worked for me, did a lousy job and got called out for it.

    Your loss. Find someone else to print every rumor you hear without even bothering to check your sources. What will be missed in south Florida is fair and balanced reporting about the arts, and, sad to say... most won't even notice.

  13. Do you honestly think that the internet is only available in Florida?

    Well, no Gary. I actually keep track of who's reading, and from where. The Scene gets about two dozen reads from people in New York and LA each day. We also get a dozen readers from Europe, a handful from Australia. It's humbling.

    Articles referring to THE LIFE articles were published on several acting sites around the country; Chicago, New York, and inexplicably, Indiana. I understand that several industry newsletters picked it up, too.

    You'll be happy know that Google searches for your name are in the top ten keyword searches that lead here every week, although you're not ranked as high as Paul Tei. But then, you're not on an internationally broadcast TV show like he is. He's popular in a good way.

    The ONE time a REAL news organization published words resembling your own they were sued and lost.

    Did they, now? They lost, did they? Is that how you remember it, that they lost? The judge ruled against them?

    Well, in that case, I can read the court records! I was under the impression that there had been a settlement out of court. Thanks for another useful heads up!

    There are dozens of genuine professionals in south Florida with whom I am in constant contact

    "Constant contact" with "dozens of professionals?" Well, I can't deny that, can I? LOL!

    Speaking of genuine theatre professionals, I had a lovely chat with Alan Glist during the Cappies; he couldn't figure out why you keep calling him after the way you screwed him over, and I explained that I had told you that if you could convince him to tell me to lay off, I would. We had a good laugh about that. We talked about his new show, 9to5, and I told him some Mark Kudish stories from the FAU days.

    He didn't tell me to lay off, by the way. I did ask.

    And speaking of your former business associates, I'll give your regards to Tessa Rogers.

    And keep up the bluster - it's hilarious!

  14. Shithead. People settle cases they are going to lose. Virtually nothing gets before a judge and/or jury these days, certainly nothing civil. That was dumb, even for you. No need to search the court records. Save the $5.00 parking fee. Yes, we settled out of court. I guess that means I lost???

    Who the hell is Tessa Rogers? I'm sure there's a story there if you're bringing it up, but I'll also bet my last nickel that if I can't remember her then she's on the REALLY, REALLY long list of people who have given ME a royal one. That's the list I can't keep track of.

    Funny how you ignored 90% of my last posting (It must have been a challenge this time) and instead went on to a whole laundry list of completely different subjects.

    The Glists, for instance. I haven't spoken with Alan in at least three years and I have had a few (mostly emailed) conversations with Kathi. The last time I saw either of them was when Alan invited me to their home to discuss a potential project that went nowhere.

    It was my understanding, no, actually it has been said to me, and by me; my dealings with the Glists are VERY, VERY old news and we have all moved on in different directions. Now, I have never known either Kathi nor Alan to be liars. So I guess it is you that is lying, or exaggerating, or whatever it is you do with your Sunday nights.

    Last conversation I had with Kathi was just prior to the 9 to 5 opening and they were about to become grandparents. That was a few months ago so I assume they have by now. Mazl Tov, Kathi and Alan.

    There's your headline.

    And yes, we all know how all of those delightful stories about "The Life" circulated all over the internet. You know, all the ones created by two or three asses out of a company of almost 30 people. The ones where no one ever bothered to, yes, I believe in journalism it is called "check their facts."

    So I guess it's true that I go out every day in 'full makeup and bifocals' & can't even block a scene in a show that I had previously directed to rave reviews and a Carbonnel nomination.

    OF COURSE IT'S TRUE! SOMEONE IN INDIANA POSTED IT ON THE INTERNET!!!

    Did you hear??? There was no Holocaust either. Slavery too? ITNEVER HAPPENED!!! IT WAS ALL ON THE INTERNET! I READ IT! I SWEAR!

    I give up. I can either forget that you and your site exist (I don't even know what you look like!), or I can completely waste my time and argue with a fool. I choose the former.

    Have fun with your answer. I'm deleting this bookmark and I don't even know the name of this site. I will not read it.

  15. Shithead. People settle cases they are going to lose. Virtually nothing gets before a judge and/or jury these days, certainly nothing civil. That was dumb, even for you.

    So, you lie about the Sun-Sentinel losing the case, but I'm the dumb one? Lots of stuff gets before the judge. But getting someone to settle out of court never has the same weight as proving the case in court, which you have never done.

    Corporations settle cases for lots of reasons, and the threat of losing is only part of the equation. Newspapers aren't run by newspaper people anymore, they're run by accountants. They look at the cost vs. benefit: you were asking less than the cost of mounting a defense against you. I'd guess the paper's lawyers took a look, and realized that if they pursued it and won, you wouldn't be able to reimburse the Sentinel for the fees incurred by the defense. It made more fiscal sense to pay the lesser figure.

    It doesn't say much for the Sentinel's integrity, but it is consistent with all the other poor decisions that have taken it from a mediocre newspaper to an exceptionally lousy one.

    So I guess it's true that I go out every day in 'full makeup and bifocals' & can't even block a scene in a show that I had previously directed to rave reviews and a Carbonnel nomination.

    I wouldn't know. It's not something I reported. It's not in any article I posted.

    I did point out that as director, you are responsible for the success - or the failure - of the project. I hold to that, and so does every other director and producer in the country.

    Now, I have never known either Kathi nor Alan to be liars. So I guess it is you that is lying, or exaggerating, or whatever it is you do with your Sunday nights.

    I'm certainly not lying, and I'm not sure how I could exaggerate the conversation. It happened, and since I personally gave the link to him, it would be foolish for me to spin tales about it.

    I give up. I can either forget that you and your site exist (I don't even know what you look like!), or I can completely waste my time and argue with a fool. I choose the former.

    You and Jamison have fun; you guys need the practice at arguing.

  16. ...and Gary thought you really let him have the last word. He won't see this. His "I'm done" statement was very real (for now at least). He's done with you and if I knew how, I would get into his laptop and make it unable to ever load your site. I hope, for his sake, he keeps his word.
    Your analysis of our lawsuit is very good. It just isn't true. Not in cases of libel against newspapers. No they do not settle because it makes sense financially. A news organization's ONLY value is the quality of their reporting. To our knowledge (according to our sources, I don't state this as fact, so don't look it up and call me on it!), this was only the SECOND libel suit the major news organization that published the story EVER SETTLED out of court in its 160-year history.

    This was no decision by the accounting department... (that IS FACT)... no one broke their leg in their lobby... the Publishers and Head legal counsel offered this settlement because it was PROVEN to them that the article they published on the front page of one of their papers contained:

    "sloppy reporting, unchecked facts, editorial commentary that was published as fact, and an unacceptable amount of untrue accusations."

    These are not MY words.

    So, no. Gary didn't lie at all. He merely simplified the result of an old story by using the word "won" instead using all of all of the words that I just had to use to prove you wrong. He did NOT lie. The victorious side of a settlement is the "winner")..

    So no, we do not need practice at arguing. The case was finally settled after we fired our attorney and proved the case ourselves. We did very, very well.

    Answering your inane statements is NOT arguing. Maybe it aspires to encourage argument, but defending completely 'off the wall' statements made about you is NOT debate. Your self-importance needs an hour at Jiffy Lube.

    Gary also sent the link to this blog to Kathi & Alan Glist who were traveling yesterday. I'm not going insult their privacy by cutting and pasting Kathi's brief response, but let's just say she wasn't on your side. Ask her.

    Check page 4 of yesterday's SS Business section. It seems we can sue you, but don't expect a summons. We all know you have nothing to sue for, and I really don't wish to travel to Florida (or getting involved in ANY lawsuits for that matter) as we have so much that is good on our plates right now.

    Your site, I believe, is entitled "SOUTH FLORIDA Theater Scene." We are nowhere near south Florida. There are, in fact, several states between where we are and "NORTH Florida" So stay in your cage.

    We're not 'hiding' by the way. Our names and the project we're involved in are 'all over the place' and in a few days, when the timing is right... we'll get the word out officially.

    Still, watch yourself. This community has been forewarned about you. They know of your useless and worthless vendetta against Gary. I expect that you'll, no doubt have fun with that statement ... True as it is.

  17. You blog wouldn't let me go on... so here is the rest...

    Just one more comment, the only actual 'argument' I will make. To quote you:

    "...I did point out that as director, you are responsible for the success - or the failure - of the project. I hold to that, and so does every other director and producer in the country..."

    You were right there. Gary DOES blame himself for not spending enough time in New York for callbacks, etc... He beat himself daily for it at the time. He too holds himself responsible. It must be a creative thing, because I think he's dead wrong.

    He could have gone through weeks of callbacks and STILL would have never had a clue as to how horrible the horrible work ethics and impossible to manage attitudes of the five or six people who made the show unrepresentable. He couldn't fire his lead actress, because her understudy was SUCH a nightmare, he had already fired her!

    Three of the leads were GREAT at auditioning. They gave him everything he asked for in the 'interview' and once they were hired did nothing but argue and complain about EVERYTHING.

    A record FIVE replacements were made to the cast in the first 10 days of rehearsal. I insisted he delay the opening by 10 days.

    The majority of the cast in our first production of THE LIFE had no professional experience. It was a summer show and it was cast with MANY, MANY recent grads.

    Gary and his collaborators worked them hard and created a great production.

    It should have been easier the second time around. Again, in his defense, you can do your absolute best AND MORE... but if your words are falling on deaf ears, you'll still have nothing.

    With that said, he still DOES take responsibility. He didn't need you to rub salt into the wound.

    To those who feel wronged. Blame me. Gary wasn't even there when I fired everyone and canceled the run (at a HUGE financial loss). I too take full responsibility for my actions. Exactly two people were done a disservice because the actions of the others made it completely impossible for me to unravel the situation responsibly. BOTH of these two are coming BACK TO WORK for us in the next few weeks.

    They were there. You were not.

    You see, I know the FACTS. That you refuse to believe them is your choice.

    The fact that you publish the unsupported lies (electronically or otherwise) and stand by them without checking your sources (to quote Gary and every 1st Amendment Attorney) is not only irresponsible, it is illegal.

    So is stealing chewing gum, but no one goes to jail for it. So carry on...

    Your posts have no consequences (except of course among the 24 traveling south Florida theater pros who are reading your blog from Europe). That was humbling? 24 hits a week! Humbling!

    Now I bid MY farewell. Write away.

  18. You guys are delusional.... there is at least one entire cast that still hasn't gotten paid for the work done, and cast members from the original production of the show that were never paid. I guess all the people you have wronged are just part of mass delusion and none of it really happened...

    You guys are such creeps, and I can't wait to get another phone call from a theatre you are trying to use asking about your dealings and my experience with you, because I love telling them exactly what happened and doing everything I can to protect actors.

  19. The fact that you publish the unsupported lies (electronically or otherwise) and stand by them without checking your sources

    The thing is that you keep saying my information is inaccurate, but so far, have not offered any credible evidence beyond accusing me of not really knowing anything.

    But I know lots of facts about you and Gary. Public records are a wonderful thing. I know that you're being sued by Sally Ketcham right now. I know that the lawyer you mention firing has been admonished by the Bar at least twice.

    I know that all seven of the corporations you started were dissolved because you didn't file required paperwork. I know that you had to file to re-incorporate the Atlantis Playhouse TWICE because you didn't file your annual report. Once might be an accident: but twice? Talk about "sloppy!"

    Your site, I believe, is entitled "SOUTH FLORIDA Theater Scene." We are nowhere near south Florida.

    One might almost suspect you're running from that lawsuit, huh? No need to deny anything, it's just an observation.

    But while it's true that this blog is primarily concerned with promoting South Florida theatre, it's also meant to serve South Florida theatre. And since I keep getting requests to follow up on you, well, keeping an eye on you serves the interests of South Florida readers.

    Besides, you guys seriously need someone paying attention to what you do and reporting on it. I mean, I've seen productions collapse, and theaters go belly up, but you and Gary are like Typhoid Mary for theater!


    The majority of the cast in our first production of THE LIFE had no professional experience. It was a summer show and it was cast with MANY, MANY recent grads.

    Yes, it was a great show. And tell us again why you didn't use any of them? Most of them are still around, I've been calling them.

    Can you guess what they told me? About their pay?

    Jamison, I've been working in South Florida theatre since 1986. And I've known a lot of producers who have a bad rep, deserved and otherwise. Getting screwed by a producer is an occupational hazard, and lots of actors have been screwed by various parties. But if I gather together every person who complained about all those other producers, that numbers is dwarfed by the army of people who claim you've shafted them over the last ten years or so. It's the same story, again and again and again. The story told by the cast of The Life is almost verbatim to that told by the cast of I Write The Songs.

    And it's not just the bottom of the barrel, Jamison. The people sharing their stories with me are working professionals, recognized for their talent and hard work. They run their own companies, they have their work featured nationally, they are established, genuine professionals. And they all tell the same story: you and Gary owe them money.

    You keep claiming that you and Gary "take responsibility." But you haven't demonstrated it at any point in time. It's lip-service. You don't take responsibility by blaming the actors you hired, you don't take responsibility by blaming your directors, or the unions, or people who talk about you.

    No, the two of you have been quick to claim innocence, over and over and over again. You've gotten good at the act. But you can only lose your virginity once.

  21. Sally Ketcham. We "were" being counter-sued. We sued first. You want the exciting facts of the Ketcham case? OK! Gary fell on her property (on a broken walkway she was supposed to fix before we moved in). He was badly injured, (scary injured) AND made a claim (only for medical expenses). She, in turn, decided to evict us because we cost her money. We moved. Case closed. Now isn't that really exciting news about S. Fla Theater?

    Plus you can't run from a lawsuit, if you run, you lose and your SSN# doesn't change from state to state. Does that satisfy your NEED for proof of anything? I hope so because we have no intention of proving anything else to you.

    Maybe that has been the problem all along. Are you are actually asking us to PROVE things to you? Well you have along, long wait, Sir.

    1. You have not made one factual or at the very least "specific" accusation in any of your 'quarterly' attacks. Everything you have said about (mostly Gary, for some reason) is just a twisted comment on an event or situation in which a show an event or an entire business failed (and we all suffered)---or someone didn't do their job, was fired and is now angry. In many cases, where nothing actually happened AT ALL, you just surmise things from rumors, very indescript public records, etc. that we have done something wrong. EVERY TIME. You make no claims worthy of a defense. This time you surmised we were up to something because of the names of our dogs! What is our defense against such madness?

    2. If you DID ever make a specific claim, where do you assume that you have the authority to MAKE us PROVE anything to you! Who do you think you are?

    3. WHO from the original cast of THE LIFE was not paid? I would VERY MUCH like to know. Who, from ANY production at the Atlantis Playhouse was not paid? Not a soul. Find me one of these people, please.

    4. Your 'public records' report about the corporate filings at the Atlantis Playhouse are dead wrong. I can't defend dead wrong. Call Katherine Harris your Sec'y of State at the time. We all know how great she was at her job.

    5. Any corporation that was dissolved was because it was for a short-lived project that didn't require renewal. That is completely normal.

    6. At least half of the original cast of THE LIFE has moved away. A good number of them have worked for us since. I know of one 'issue' that saddened us and I 'think' it has since been calmed (for lack of a better word). I hope so.

    What you are mostly not getting is that we don't keep claiming innocence, we simply don't know what you are talking about most of the time or---it's none of your business.

    All of those people you refer to... where does it all come from? It's called a bandwagon... stop for a while. Watch how much else stops...

    FOR THE LAST TIME. WE ARE NOT INNOCENT. WE MAKE MISTAKES JUST LIKE EVERYONE ELSE. STILL WHAT YOU, A COMPLETE STRANGER, KEEP IMPLYING IS HORRIBLE. JUST HORRIBLE.

    Please leave us alone. We are nowhere near what you think we are. Can you please just stop?

    Gary does, but he has repeatedly said the same thing so I doubt it) are the only ones who add to your posts about us?

    Where are the "run their own companies, they have their work featured nationally, they are established, genuine professionals..." you speak of. Not a peep. Not once.

    We are not changing careers per your request. So blog yourself silly.

    Bye.

  25. Jamison, I removed your comment because the lawyer whose name appeared on your court records and was brought before the bar is NOT the same one you named in the comment. I don't know if this other lawyer was an associate, or an earlier or later lawyer, or what. But, despite your claims to the contrary, when I know something is false, I don't let it stand. I'll make some calls and see why the names don't match.

  26. YOU REMOVED THE ONE POST WHERE I AGREED WITH YOU!

    Whoa. You're a dirtier player than I though!

  27. OK. I get it. Yes. Gary used a different lawyer for the trip and fall. He was a MONSTER. David Benenfeld. Fired him after about three days. I don't know how his name even appeared on any records,

    Off the blog. They send me emails, they bump into me at shows, they call me up.

    I do wish some of them would comment, but the truth is they don't want their names in any kind of proximity to yours. And I can respect that.

  29. Oh, ok. Funny answer!

    I'll sleep very well on that lame one.

    Thank you for FINALLY proving what an ass you are!

    Gary, come read this! It's GREAT!

    We're both laughing now. OK. Done deal.
