INTRODUCTION BY EDITOR AND PUBLISHER C. A. PASSINAULT
to a very special Halloween issue of Frontier Pop!
Actually, it’s our first Halloween issue, but I don’t
have a lot of time to do anything about it, so please bear with me.
I had wanted to write an original short story for this issue, but
with a lot of big projects going on, I did not have time.
I suppose that I have two stories, of sorts, for my readers to check
out. One is a short story, called “The Point”. I believe
that I wrote it eight years ago, which is a while, but it’s
really good. The second is a screenplay for a feature indie film that
I will never film, as logistically, it’s not worth it. The screenplay
is called “Reverence”, which I finished seven years ago,
after five drafts. Please do not confuse it, or the story, for the
Reverence short film that I’m preparing to work on. I will say,
however, that the new Reverence short indie film is based upon the
first act of Reverence, where the couple visits the graveyard. I took
that premise, and then ran with it for the short film, which is an
entirely new script with new characters. The Reverence short film,
too, is going to have to be a masterpiece (and, according to my latest
draft, it is well on its way to becoming just that. It may be one
of my first solo films, but it should become one the best short films,
if not the best, ever produced in the Tampa Bay indie film market.
The Reverence short film, due to be produced in 2011, will be logistically
easier, too, with a cast of four and a running time of 30 minutes.).
It will have to be a masterpiece because that short film will be a
cornerstone for an annual horror film festival that I’m working
So, kick back, and read my stories. I should be able to write, and
publish, some new stories by next Halloween.
Since this Halloween absolutely sucks for some of us, I’d like
to take the time to remember one of my best Halloweens. That was the
Halloween party of 1990, a really cool apartment complex party thrown
by the employees of Price Water House in Tampa (You’d never
think that accountants and programmers could throw good parties, but
these people could, and did. This party rivaled some of my fraternity
parties, and was one of the best parties which I’ve ever been
to. Most of the people were older than I was, too, as they were college
graduates, for the most part.)
In October of 1990, I had begin my DJ career as DJ Wiz Kid, as I was
very young, and in that month
I produced two cassette program releases, Fresh Mix, and Nasty Mix
(Yes, the names sucked, but again, I was really young, did not figure
out exactly what I was doing, or how significant that everything that
I was doing at that point would be in the future, and just getting
started in my entertainment career. For the re-release of the releases
as converted MP3 programs later this year/ early next year, I did
my best to make the titles cool by branding them “Fresh MX”
and “Nasty MX”, although the programs themselves, while
creative, are mediocre.). Toward the end of October, I was planning
out my third release, Horizons, which would end up becoming not only
my first hit, but a program that was many years ahead of its time,
and would set the stage for entertainment formats which still exist
today. Besides the cool title, Horizons, well, at least the first
45 minute side, would have some really cool music. What really made
the difference, however, was my plan to go to a party with a tape
recorder, interview people, and then use samples and segments of that
session in the program. It was a really cool idea, and one which I
would revisit often over the years (and even today, and in the near
future, I will be doing things like this).
On October 31, 1990, I went to that Halloween party with a tape recorder
and a microphone, and had a lot of fun interviewing some really cool
people. The way that they had set up the party was really cool, too.
The party was held in two apartments on the ground floor of an apartment
building, with both apartments being across the hall from each other.
The entrances and exits of the apartments were relocated at the rear
sliding glass doors, and the actual doors, which were facing each
other, were bridged floor to ceiling across the hall with a tunnel
made of mattresses! Obviously, this would not have worked if it had
been raining and windy, but since it was dry and cold, this hall tunnel
was a creative, and brilliant way to turn two apartments into one
(now, as a professional event planner, in hindsight, I can say that
there were some serious issues with fire codes and occupancy levels
with the set up, and that no sane professional would ever set up an
event like that for liability reasons, but with it being a private,
underground party, it was really, really cool, and really fun). The
east apartment was the main entrance / exit, and served as a mingling
area where all of the food and drinks were. The tunnel had a fog machine
set up in it, creating a cool, lit up haze as people traversed back
and forth. The west apartment was set up as a dance floor, and had
lighting, a DJ, an awesome sound system, and another fog machine (they
had wanted me to DJ their party, but because I did not have any equipment,
that was not an option). They had the party cranking, too, because
all of the employees had the whole building rented out to their company,
and it wasn’t like the other tenants in the adjacent apartments
would complain, as they were all at the party (Also being a Wednesday
night, it was a good thing that they did have the whole building to
themselves, as the party ran into the early hours of November 1. For
the rest of the apartment complex, it was a work night, and for the
revelers, I believe that it was for them too. Ah, to be young, and
not need a whole lot of sleep!).
After I experienced one of the coolest parties in (my) history, and
I had tapes full of interviews,
I proceeded later that night to work on my Horizons release. On November
2, 1990, I released Horizons, and, no surprise, a few hundred copies
were immediately circulated to the people who were at the party; I
dubbed a few copies, they dubbed many more copies, and within days,
there were thousands of copies all over the Tampa Bay area. The people
who were at the party were fans of the release, especially since many
of them were on it, and I had a huge hit on my hands. To me, those
first two releases were just the warm up. My DJ career really started
Thinking back, though, I really wished that there were cool parties,
like that one, going on today. Few are, and that will soon change.
At any rate, that was an anecdote about some really cool people, and
the best Halloween party that I’ve ever been to, at the dawn
of my entertainment career (I was really popular in college in 1990,
and in 1991, too, although my life has always been one of extremes.
I’m either loved, or hated. I never get any middle ground).
That said, this issue will now take a turn into an anecdote that I
would like to refer to as “The Evil Among Us.” It’s
about a group of crazy fanboys who tried to gang up on me online,
who started a fight with me, and who ultimately lost.
That said, the following account
is my opinion, and should not be construed as fact, although it is
written as fact. I’d rather not start each statement
with “In my opinion”, as it gets clumsy.
THE FOLLOWING IS ALSO
WHY I DO NOT TRUST THE PEOPLE CURRENTLY INVOLVED WITH THE TAMPA INDIE
FILM SCENE. I ALSO DO NOT RECOMMEND GETTING INVOLVED WITH THE TAMPA
FILM SCENE, OR TRUSTING ANYONE, UNTIL A PROFESSIONAL FILM COMMUNITY
CAN BE ESTABLISHED, AND STANDARDS OF CONDUCT, AND ACCOUNTABILITY,
ARE IN FORCE. ORDER MUST BE BROUGHT TO THE MARKET!
THERE IS NO PROFESSIONAL INDIE FILM COMMUNITY IN TAMPA BAY, AS OF
LATE 2010, IN MY EDUCATED OPINION, AND I FEEL THAT IT WILL BE, AT
LEAST, 2013, AT THE EARLIEST, BEFORE CONDITIONS ARE RIGHT, AND SUPPORT
INFRASTRUCTURE IS IN PLACE, TO HELP ESTABLISH ONE.
IF YOU FEEL THAT YOU MUST GET INVOLVED, AND ARE WILLING TO TAKE A
RISK, PLEASE DO NOT TRUST ANYONE UNTIL THEY EARN YOUR TRUST. TRUST
MUST BE EARNED!
In 2005, I introduced myself to the group of people who claimed to
the be indie film community in the Tampa Bay area. Each month, this
group of fanboys would gather at a monthly film festival which was
notorious for showing amateurish, crappy indie films. That monthly
film festival was the Coffeehouse Film Review, which would soon become
The Tampa Film Review.
At first, everything seemed to go well. The people, other than their
obvious flaws, seemed cool. Despite their lack of talent and organization,
I accepted them for why they were. Had I known what was really going
on behind my back, however, I would not have been so accepting. I
sincerely do regret ever knowing any of them, although my knowledge
about these people, which was gained through the hellish experience
of knowing them, is valuable to everyone, and should prove to be valuable
in the future.
From what I gather, the group looked me up online. The ringleaders
were afraid of competing with me, and allowed their insecurities to
start them out an a course of action which would prove to be a nightmare
for them. You see, this group was actually a clique of insecure wannabe’s,
and a tactic that they employed often was to eliminate perceived competition
through stealing, slander, and what they tried to pass off as intimidation.
While those unethical, unprofessional tactics seemed to work on other
people whom they ganged up on and drove away (which crippled any progress
in the Tampa indie film scene, in my qualified opinion), they made
a mistake when they tried it with me. Although there is a lot of evidence
that they studied my web sites and stole what they could from them,
they should have done there homework on my a lot more thoroughly.
If they had known what I had been doing since 2000, they would have
never started with me.
You see, I had already established myself as an entertainment ethics
activist and a scam fighter, and I had become the worst nightmare
for people like them. Had they left me alone, I would have probably
left them alone, as they were hardly a threat to anyone, and seriously,
they were not succeeding in their endeavors much. Their monthly film
festival was seriously flawed, their indie films and web sites sucked,
and they were certainly not a professional threat to me, or anyone
else. I would have probably left them alone. By 2005, I had been successful
in my fight against scams; my associates and I had already crippled
several modeling scams, had changed a lot of things in the modeling
industry, had closed several unethical business (including a casting
scam in Clearwater in 2003 which was run by a shady, unethical man
claiming to be a “casting director”, but who was actually
using castings and auditions for “feature films” as bait
to sell actors classes in his acting school; this would prove to be
relevant later on, as I strongly believe that he set out for revenge
later, and added to the fight with the Tampa indie film clique (and
to this man: Do not gloat over your perception that you “sabotaged”
my relationship with any of these people. You merely annoyed me, and
that is it. What happened, I believe, would have happened, and played
out, the same way had you never became involved. You are insignificant,
as well as petty and vindictive, but rather, and ultimately, impotent
in your attempts to get even with me. As for me, I’m gloating
that you wasted your time and energy in the attempt, as revenge in
itself is ultimately unproductive and self-defeating. Revenge is actually
worthwhile if you don’t have to go out of your way to achieve
it, and it was a byproduct of success, such as successfully competing
with me. Good luck there, my friend, because I’m the real deal,
and fake, no-talent people like you have been unable to compete with
me on any level. If anything, you helped me out by serving as a catalyst
and speeding up the process of figuring out who these people were,
and how they operated. Thank you for your help by accidently helping
my productivity by saving me a lot of time. Your ignorance and ineptness
was very much appreciated).
In 2006, I noticed that some of my ideas and web site design concepts
had turned up on their web sites, with some of them blatantly plagiarizing
my properties. One of them was a web designer, and their main web
site incorporated some of my latest web design ideas, which was hardly
a coincidence. Additionally, another so-called “filmmaker”
stole on of my ads and tried to use it himself. That was the state
of the Tampa indie film scene, however, as you had a bunch of insecure
jerks who did not know what they claimed to do, and they proved it
by stealing things from you and then trying to use it against you,
WHILE also trying to undermine your credibility through slander and
smear campaigns (obviously, if they damage your credibility, then
it undermines any claims that you level against them that they stole
from you, a tactic which backfired when they tried to use it on me).
Networking and helping out the Tampa indie film scene was very risky,
it seemed, as you tended to pitch good ideas to people who then tried
to compete against you with your own ideas, and use your ideas to
boost their own credibility while trying to deny you credit (I’ve
come up with solutions for this unethical, unprofessional behavior,
as it undermines community, trust, and progress. These solutions will
be heavily used in my upcoming Tampa Film Conference series for the
future Tampa indie film community, once it is established for the
first time). It caught my attention, but I merely noted it, and did
not do anything about it. In the fall of 2006, they decided to do
a short film together, and one of them asked me for actress referrals
for the film, which was called The Quiet Place. So, I referred my
good friend, actress and model Harmony Oswald, to the production,
and she was cast into one of the two lead roles.
Without going into a really, really long story (check out my behind-the-scenes
expose on The Quiet Place on Tampa Bay Film, and in other issues of
Frontier Pop, for what happened), I helped out with the production,
and did a good job. During the production, a filmmaker and I were
discussing indie film, film festivals, Youtube, and online film festivals,
and I revealed that I was working on an online film festival which
used sources such as Youtube. Little did I know but another filmmaker
was nearby, eavesdropping (he and his brother had been on my web sites,
and obviously knew that I was their top competition. Although they
did not publicly admit it, their actions proved that this was the
case, and they did pay attention to what I did as a result. Stealing
my ideas was also proof that the did not know what they were doing,
and that they had to learn from me). As thanks for all of my hard
work, the clique repaid me by making up slanderous rumors about me
behind my back, and spread them around. Did you think that I would
take that lying down after it became known to me in late 2007? Hell
no. I did the right thing, fought back, and put the idiots in their
place! By then, too, I had the support infrastructure in place to
address their unethical, unprofessional conduct, also. The timing
In late 2006, oblivious to the slander, I began developing Tampa Bay
Film, a web site which would eventually grow to a network of over
eight web sites, and which would become the voice of Tampa indie film.
The stage was set for the most intense fight of my career as several
of the evil, unethical bastards tried to gang up on me. My fight with
the modeling scams was nothing compared to the fight that these people
As a side note, please be aware that I was oblivious to their slander
and other unethical, unprofessional activity, and that I did not create
Tampa Bay Film to attack, or slam, anyone! I do not put that much
effort into my criticism of others, and it just so happens that putting
them in their proper place was a benefit, and a byproduct, of what
Tampa Bay Film became, and that it was never the primary (or original)
mission. It was the perfect platform to bring ethics, and integrity,
to the market. These people should not be flattered, as they were
not a threat, and not significant, to me, and I did not do all of
that work as a reaction to what they try to do to me. Their activities
helped to open my eyes to what was wrong in the Tampa indie film scene,
however, and that was what we addressed. It did lead to a massive
war against their lies and activities, although that effort was directed
against them as a group, and not any one of them individually, as
it would not have been cost-effective, or worthwhile, to do so. The
stage was set for what was to come, however, and it did.
When I became aware of these rumors in 2007, it led to a brief fight.
The fight was on a pop culture web site which one of the ringleaders
had been running since 2000, and the webmaster, who was named Nolan,
somehow proclaimed himself to be the authority on indie film in Tampa.
Nolan, obviously, was also insanely jealous of me, IMO, and I was
told that one of his worst fears was that I would someday compete
with his pop culture web site. Although, if he would have been cool
and professional, what he and his friends did would become the catalyst
for making their worst nightmares come true.
There were about ten of them, and I kicked all of their asses, as
well as lent a hand in helping them undermine their own credibility
by enhancing their self-sabotage and destructive behavior. I’ve
also been told that my war against them led to the demise of The Tampa
Film Review, as well as crippled the pop culture site, which, in my
opinion, was a hate site.
When Tampa Bay Film launched in January of 2007, with its built-in
online film festival, it raised some eyebrows. Coincidently, the filmmaker
who had been eavesdropping on my conversation about online film festivals
also announced that they had one, and it launched. Their friend, a
woman who was a film blogger, immediately slammed my Tampa Bay Film
site in an online review on her blog, and praised her friend’s
online film festival. She also implied that I had stolen the idea
for an online film festival FROM THEM! This really annoyed me, because
every indication was that the opposite was true. My belief? Had I
NOT said anything on that film set that day about an online film festival,
I believe that they would have never come up with an online film festival.
Well, Tampa Bay Film and its online film festival made short work
of the competition, despite negative reviews from a few people who
obviously had interests in that competition, and a vigorous fight
on the pop culture web site message board. By summer, their online
film festival failed, and Tampa Bay Film and its online film festival
was more popular than ever.
The message board of the pop culture web site proved to be obnoxious,
too. The owner, Nolan, who was an aging loser who was afraid of competing
with me, IMO, was firmly on the side of his friends, the Tampa indie
film clique. Although I won every debate on the message board (and
they know it, too!), where the losers finally gave up on the topic
being debated and resorted to slander and attempts at credibility
attacks, the owner of the pop culture web site did something unforgivable.
He’d go in and edit my posts to make it look like I could not
defend myself or the topic, or remove my posts altogether, while allowing
the posts, and the slander, of his friends to remain (and I was not
the only one who witnessed this). That’s when I began to entertain
the idea of launching my own pop culture site.
In the fall of 2007, the message board had the mother of all fights.
Some filmmakers in the Tampa indie film clique, who had pretended
to be my friends, denounced me. The fight became so intense, that
they even began fighting each other. It further divided them, and
proved to be very entertaining for me.
In December 2007, I had enough of the nonsense. I declared war on
them, as far as Tampa indie film went, and their pop culture web site,
in respects to its coverage of Tampa indie film, and mobilized Tampa
Bay Film to bring order, and balance, to the Tampa indie film market.
I also began to publish articles and reviews on Tampa Bay Film which
told it how it was, even if it publically stated the obvious.
In January 2008, I published a review of The Tampa Film Review which
pretty much told it how it was, and it pissed off the Tampa indie
film clique. The organizer, in fact, sent me a profanity-filled email,
tried to insult me, and tried to slander me. I supposed that this
was confirmation that these people were afraid of criticism, Tampa
Bay Film, and of competing with me.
You will know them by what they do, and also be able to measure their
professional skill by what they attempt to do, but fail to pull off.
The fighting on the pop culture web site message board, too, continued.
I even had a stalker, an anonymous poster who referred to himself
as “the_truth” (the funny thing about that name, in my
opinion, was that it was an insult to all of the posters on the message
board, and they never picked up on it. By calling themselves “the_truth”,
they were implying that all of the other posters were full of lies
and B.S.), who seemed to have it in for me, and who stirred up trouble
without ever revealing who they were. Who do I think that the_truth
is? Well, and Mark Terry should pay attention, my leading theory is
that this jerk is the casting director from Clearwater who I had put
out of business years earlier. They had a lot of free time on their
hands, in my opinion, looked me up on the Internet to see where I
was posting (I used my real name on the message boards, which made
this easy to do), and started to post in order to get even with me.
What makes me think this? A post that the_truth did, where they stated
I “had a history of conducting smear campaigns on the Internet
under various pseudonyms”. The casting director had, in fact,
made the same exact claim, just as I put them out of business, and
their previous business partner sued them for theft of intellectual
property, misrepresentation, and deceptive trade practices. The irony,
too, is that the_truth was accusing me of doing what they were also
doing on the message board, at the time, but posting as the_truth.
Although I was primarily posting under my real name (and with my other
accounts, I made it clear that they were also mine), this coward was
posting attacks under a pseudonym themselves, and I called them on
that. Also, in all of the years that the content in question was published
on my web sites, no one had ever been able to prove that the authors
were, in fact, me, posting under other names.
The_truth, however, proved to be nothing more than an insignificant
irritant, who served to annoy and harass people, more than anything
else. If they set out to obtain revenge upon me, they failed miserably,
just like they failed in business.
Tampa Bay Film became more dominant in 2008, and expanded into a network
of four separate web sites within that year, all operating under the
powerful Tampa Bay Film brand. One of those sites was an all-new online
film festival, built from the ground up with improvements. All of
the Tampa Bay Film sites were interconnected with each other, forming
a meta site of unequaled influence and effectiveness. The pop culture
site, and its “coverage” of Tampa indie film, could not
compete, and their coverage, and input, into Tampa indie film began
to fall behind. The owner of the pop culture site, as well as his
cronies, were not happy about that. Because of Tampa Bay Film and
my other online activity, criticism against the Tampa indie film clique,
and The Tampa Film Review monthly film festival, expanded exponentially.
Throughout 2008, the most common thing that I heard from people was
that I was right, and that I was bringing up a lot of valid points
in my ongoing criticism. A growing amount of people dropped their
support for what the Tampa indie film clique was doing.
2008 saw a growing backlash against the Tampa indie film clique, and
the pop culture site, as more and more people learned about what was
really going on. Word spread, and we were winning the war on every
front. The first indiction of that was the growing instability of
The Tampa Film Review, which was progressively becoming worse, as
well as less consistent. Another indication was that the readers of
the pop culture site began to treat it like a running joke, and readership
dropped off. A growing number people refused to take the pop culture
site seriously, and even more people accepted Tampa Bay Film as the
voice of Tampa indie film.
By the end of the first year of war in the Tampa indie film scene,
The Tampa Film Review failed, and closed down. Although the organizers
had attempted to address the shortcomings that my reviews had brought
up, it proved to be too little, too late. They couldn’t fix
it, were discouraged, and, in my opinion, simply threw in the towel
before their monthly film festival even approached its potential.
Both funny, and sad, was that they spun the last Tampa Film Review,
in January 2009, as the “successful end of a five year run”.
Many people laughed at the spin, as they all knew what had really
happened. They knew that they had failed. The sad thing was, so did
the organizers and the remaining small number of “supporters”.
With the end to The Tampa Film Review came a lot of changes, too.
The back of the Tampa indie film clique was broken, as they had lost
their monthly get-together. As a result, the main players of the clique
began to drift apart. Some of them even began to fight each other
even more fiercely than before, blaming each other for their failures
(which greatly amused me), and turned loose friends to solid enemies.
Nolan’s history of selective censorship, and the publication
of propaganda, on his pop culture site, which I was one of many victims,
began to catch up to him. His readership dropped even more. The pop
culture site peaked around 2007. From 2009 to 2010, the readership
of his site dropped by over 90%! I was very happy to see his twisted
games catch up to him, and cost his site the popularity he seemed
to thrive on.
And, in early 2010, when Nolan, his remaining friends, and his pop
culture site, were down in the gutter, I decided to proceed to finish
off what was left of his site. I decided to put together a rival pop
culture web site which would have overwhelmed and dominated his even
when it was in its prime. Frontier Pop was born in April 2010, and
began development for a fall 2010 launch.
In early summer 2010, Nolan gave up on trying to address the growing,
and constant, criticism against him, and he made it difficult for
anyone to comment on his site, and interact with it. He had a readers
commentary on the front page, which was often full of criticism and
people mocking him, and diverted commentary to his message board.
This was another large nail in the coffin of his web site, and his
retreat crippled it. He lost most of his remaining readers, and his
failure became even more pronounced when he’s put a thread on
the message board about his current issue with bold instructions like
“Let’s do it!”, and no one by two or three people
would respond. Clearly, his web site was on the rocks, and, IMO, he
and his friend Terence were the ones who drove it there, through their
censorship and bullying their readers.
The apparent dismal condition of the once-relevant pop culture web
site must have been depressing for Nolan and his little buddy, but
Nolan, in a last attempt to deflect blame from him, IMO, tried to
spin the pathetic position of his site by claiming that it was a result
of social media sites, and not because of anything that he did, or
any sort of organized boycott against his site. No one bought it.
Everyone knew what really happened, and I think that it finally got
to Nolan that no one was buying his B.S. anymore.
In July 2010, Nolan had a meltdown, and threw a temper tantrum on
his pop culture web site, which had less than five (verifiable, from
the feedback on his message board) readers left. He put together a
video aimed at myself and his other critics. His few supporters also
turned on him about the video, and they all criticized him for it.
Upon seeing that, I decided to launch Frontier Pop early.
Frontier Pop launched a few days later. Since then, Frontier Pop has
become very popular, far exceeding what Nolan’s site achieved
at its prime. Frontier Pop is better designed, better organized, has
better content, and literally blew away Nolan’s pop culture
site in every way. Nolan’s web site is now pretty much at rock
bottom, with three or four casual readers; most of whom are what’s
left of the Tampa indie film clique. I’ve heard that Nolan cries
about Frontier Pop, especially as it is showing him first hand how
a pop culture web site should be done. The war is ongoing, but his
site is no longer relevant, or any measurable competition. He and
his small band of fanboy nerds have reaped what they have sown.
As far as Frontier Pop is concerned, proof of its superiority is easily
referenced, as you are reading it right now. Behold, the future, which
is now the present. Frontier Pop makes Nolan’s site look outdated
and pathetic, and also outdoes his estranged fanboy friend Brandon’s
The fanboys lost, and now, whenever we sing “Nolan lost”,
we sing it with pride, as we know that he got what he deserved. He
lost his readers, he lost his respect, he lost his pride, and he lost
the relevance of his old, outdated pop culture web site. His retreat
continues, and we don’t expect his web site to last much longer,
as he will eventually figure out that updating it is an exercise in
futility, especially when all of his former readers have moved on
to Frontier Pop. Is there really any point of him continuing to try
to maintain, and update, his site?
Regarding the evil referred to in the title of this issue, we have
learned, through this tale of years of conflict, conflict which was
caused by insecurity, pettiness, cyberbullying, and jealousy, that
actions which could be described as evil ultimately lead to failure.
Am I evil? It depends upon who you talk to, I suppose, but no, I’m
not evil. I wasn’t the bad guy in all of this. I did not start
this, and I have integrity. I’m one of the good guys.
I suppose that the definition of evil all comes down to motivation,
and perception. Some may say that I was evil because I did not take
the crap that they tried to dish out on me, and I fought back, but
seriously; if someone slandered you and tried to attack your credibility
in an attempt to avoid the real issues, what would you do? If they
stole from you and tried to use your own property to compete against
you with, what would you do? If they censored you, and tried to spin
you as evil, what would you do?
I suppose that if you cannot compete with someone, and they have you
beat in every way, that you would call them evil. That’s not
my definition, it’s not my excuse, and it’s not my experience.
If I have competition, I certainly do not attack them. If being better
than the rest is evil, then I suppose that I am guilty. To me, however,
evil is not being better, it is what you do. Evil is taking an action
which hurts innocent people, and, to me, these people are not only
truly evil, but they got what they deserved.
They also learned, the hard way, that I was the wrong person to mess
with. They cannot compete with me, I have resources whish enable me
to outdo them in every way, and I put them in their place legally,
ethically, and professionally. That’s good enough for me, and
this good guy won. I will continue to win, too, as the battles wage
onward, and forward.
In the future, when Tampa Bay Film is one of the leading indie film
resources in the world, there is finally a professional Tampa indie
film scene, and the entertainment industry in Tampa Bay sets the standard,
I’m sure that many will go back and read what happened to lead
