Exit wandhvictim? Jul. 25th, 2013 @ 09:59 pm
ffutures
Just noticed that wandhvictim's account seems to have been deleted. He warned that this might happen some time ago, but doesn't seem to have taken his own warning to heart and made posts on his own journal to avoid deletion.

Those of you with long memories will remember him (her, whatever) as a frequent and vociferous poster to the old newsgroups which this journal was created to replace, using several names and multiple email addresses, and usually spoofing headers to avoid tracing. In particular, the long April 1st thread about Trolls in Sunnydale and the bar fight that closed the Bronze will long be remembered. Unfortunately their paranoia level was always fairly high, and he (she, whatever) doesn't seem to have taken to Livejournal very well. I have no idea if wandhvictim is still around, possibly under another name, but if not I'm sure they'll be missed.

100 days and counting Feb. 9th, 2013 @ 01:35 pm

It's 100 days to the 10th anniversary of the destruction of Sunnydale, and things seem to have gone very quiet in this community. Are there really no new developments in Sunnydale Studies, False Jonathan Memory Syndrome, etc.? Or is someone suppressing them??

Where are the survivors now? A huge number of people were evacuated in the days before the town collapsed; any interesting patterns in their movements? Is there any truth in the rumour that Homeland Security and various governments (including the EU, Canada, and Mexico) automatically track anyone claiming Sunnydale as their birthplace? Whatever happened to the passengers on the Last Bus? These and many other unanswered questions will never be solved if this apathy continues.

Let's make the 10th anniversary memorable, by finding a few answers!

Sunnydale-Related 419 email spam May. 3rd, 2012 @ 06:46 am
ffutures
While I no longer use my old NTLworld email address it has never been shut down by the hosting company, and I check it occasionally to make sure that there's nothing important. This time I found the usual assortment of rubbish, including three fairly typical spam emails - the difference is that although they came from three different addresses, and were phrased slightly differently, all claimed to have control of "money belonging to the late mayor Richard Wilkins of Sunnydale" which they would give me if I gave them my bank account details etc. - the usual 419 scam, which the headers show originated from email addresses in Nigeria.

The odd thing here was that by an act of unusual incompetence the email was CC-d to a LOT of other addresses - several of which I recognize as posters to the old alt.copnspiracy.sunnydale newsgroup and cross-posters from alt.conspiracy.jasmine, alt.conspiracy.jonathan, alt.conspiracy.la.darkness, alt.conspiracy.wolframandhart, alt.conspiracy.bruknerassassination etc.

This makes me think that someone has decided to target posters to those newsgroups, and is probably working from a VERY old mailing list which isn't 99% spammers. Be on your guard!

Another weird Wolfram and Hart connection Jul. 15th, 2010 @ 05:05 pm

I came across a reference to a web site with the word "wolfram" in its name and made a reference to W&H. To my surprise someone has pointed out that there is a very strange sort of connection - judge for yourselves!

Without wishing to sound paranoid, can this really be just a coincidence? Does anyone know of any other W&H connection to Champaign-Urbana, Illinois?

» Wolfram and Hart Reference in NCIS
Has anyone else noticed that the current season of the TV show NCIS includes a lawyer named Alison Hart from a strangely familiar law firm, "Wolfram, Hart, and Donowitz"?

How the hell are they getting away with this? I would have thought that by now the injunctions would already be flying thick and fast. Or is this some sort of advertising stunt by our favourite alleged evil lawyers?
» Buyers beware!
Came across a nasty little scam the other day, which seems to be targetting victims of False Jonathan Memory Syndrome.

Basically, someone has apparently faked up various "Jonathan Levinson" items including a poster for The Matrix, various CDs, etc., and is offering them on eBay at inflated prices. I'm not sure where the pictures come from, the most likely answer is someone who looks a little like him plus Photoshop. Unfortunately I can't point at an example now because eBay seems to have pulled the plug on the last couple I noticed, but here's an image I copied, allegedly from Jonathan's "Live at Caesar's Palace" album:



I'm reliably informed that the background is (a) heavily manipulated and (b) not Caesar's Palace, I have no idea what it is beyond that. The songs listed were a medly that I think would mostly be Tom Jones recordings, unfortunately I didn't take notes. I think it's likely that the disk, if it actually existed, was simply a pirated Tom Jones album with a different cover and label.

Anyway, this sort of thing is probably going to happen again, so be warned - there are NO authentic examples of this sort of material!

Any other examples of fake Sunnydale-related material surfacing?
» Vampires in Boston

Many of you in the community are aware of the endless rumors about vampires in Sunnydale. In vain we who take a more scientific approach to the matter of Sunnydale say stories like these spread without any basis, that high school students spread stories based on mere rumor, or even that authorities over-react to the presence of a few Goths.

Well, here's a story from the Boston Globe that shows how this can happen.  Boston Latin officials seek to quash 'vampire' rumors.

Note: No real vampire at all.  But I'm sure some here will say that this is another example of a coverup, that the federal government has the initiative to send in their monster fighting army team, or even that they have faith there is a "vampire slayer" in Boston.  Hogwash.

» Sunnydale Press columnist?
Hi... thought you folks might be able to help us out.

I'm one of the members of the Class of '95 reunion committee for St. Augustine High School in San Diego, CA, 92104. We're currently trying to compile a complete list of mailing addresses as part of the planning for our 15th reunion.

Due to the 2005 reunion being cancelled (we decided to take a break following the Cedar Fire in 2003 destroyed our committee chairman's house, only a few months after the Sunnydale collapse), we're still looking for a Mr. Christopher Hart.

Chris was a well liked member of the ASB and political columnist for the school paper, "The Augustinian". His political expose (freshman year!) on the O'Connor mayoral administration and the political "marker" involved in the closure of the Nutmeg to Palm sector of Bancroft Street (through the center of our campus), as well as the follow-up in the September 1994 edition regarding the reinstatement of an expelled O'Connor student, catapulted his journalism career and he had been signed on as a political correspondent by the Sunnydale Press prior to our graduation.

We are in possession of literally hundreds of photographs and newspaper articles confirming his existence prior to July of 1995, but until recently could find no confirmation of his whereabouts after that date.

The (recently found) last known contact with Chris was a letter he sent, probably in spring '99, to the alumni newsletter, for publication in the "Alumni Updates" column. This letter was *not* published (part of the Conspiracy stretching all the way to an all-boys Catholic high school in San Diego, perhaps?), and the original document was found behind a file cabinet during the recent remodeling of the school's office building. A single paragraph, ready for publication, it reads:

"Christopher Hart '95 has been promoted to Assistant Political Editor of the "Sunnydale Press" newspaper in Sunnydale, CA. He is currently engaged to Charity Kendall, a longtime resident of Sunnydale, and they have recently purchased a house at 1692 Revello Drive in that city. Their wedding is scheduled at St. Patrick's on 30th Street on June 26th at 2:00 PM, Fr. Gary Sanders O.S.A. presiding. All are invited. Reception to follow at St. Augustine H.S. gymnasium."

Interestingly enough, the St. Patrick's parish schedule is missing the page for the week of June 20th, 1999, and Fr. Gary (now Provincial of the Augustinian Order for western North America) claims to have no memory of ever meeting Mr. Hart. No copies of Mr. Hart's wedding invitations have ever surfaced. He did not attend the 2000 reunion.
» Political Connections???

Hello all, just recently found this board and something struck me as more than odd; The name Wolfram & Hart keeps popping up in the strangest places. I recently went to www.Opensecrets.org  to look into those contributing to the presidential candidates and guess whose name kept popping up? W&H!!.  It seems our favourite lawfirm has made many political contributions over the years?: The Kennedy's, Bushes, Clinton's and  recently McCain.  At first it looks perfectly normal of course, big company donating to those who support it interests but  when looks at when the donations stop things get even trickier.  W&H stopped donating to Kennedy  right before John was assasinated in Dallas.  In additon the sponsorship of McCain didn't start until a few weeks ago after he won the republican Primary and started abandoning his old moral views. 

I tried to post links of the relevant pages but sometime between my last pageview and linking the pages the site underwent maintainence and now W&H cannot be found on any donor list for ANY candidate.

If anyone knows about W&H influencing local elections that information would be most appreciated.
