Wrapup and sendoff

March 24th, 2006 (07:46 pm)

While it's good to see this was successful and I had a blast working on it, it's also good to finally be able to move on ;)

Personally, I'm pushing forward with PixelanteNation, and we now have Tom Buscaglia's support in legitimizing it into a functional, non-profit lobbyist organization. Look for EGCA, electronic gaming consumer's alliance, to show up formally in coming weeks.

In the meantime, the PixelanteNation fundraising store is proud to offer a one-of-a-kind parting item; the I Sent Jack Thompson Pretty, Pretty Flowers T-shirt. All proceeds go to EGCA hosting and projects.

Stay tuned for the upcoming "Flowers For Jack World Tour 2006" t-shirt ;)

Anon poster

February 22nd, 2006 (10:09 pm)

I whois'd that last anon post, it wasn't a Florida IP and, by the timestamp compared to his last GP comments, it just couldn't have been Jack.

Better luck next time, I guess :(

OMG... Jack Thompson's wife is *NORMAL*

Check this out!

She's part of one of the oldest and most prestegious law firms in Florida. She's even a 'stand in' on the Florida bar committee, AND she's supposedly known for her politeness towards her clients...

HOW DOES SHE PUT UP WITH HIM?!?!?

-Alyson

BTW, I'll be able to withdraw the next 500 next week!

something completely different...

For all our supporters, to tide you over until the PA donations go through... I made, uh... this.

Jack Thompson's credibility had ONE weakness...

Can't be serious all the time, you know ;)

Wow Jack, just wow...

February 12th, 2006 (10:24 pm)

Mr. Thompson,

First off, my name is Alyson Burch and I'm the cofounder of
'Flowers for Jack'. I would also like to state that my partner
(George) and I have no affiliation what-so-ever with Take Two or
Joystiq. George and I take full responsibility. Also, I emailed this
to you a few days ago and never received a response. My partner,
George, gave me your email so I could do my half of the explaining.

Now that all the formal stuff is taken care of, let me explain how
and why this is, because, you deserve to know! Our original intent was
to apologize for all the heinous acts or fellow gamers have done and
to show you that gamers can be anybody and everybody. Hate mail only
causes more hate! So instead of taking the easy way and sending some
boring letter, we decided to put a little 'zest' in our creation. We
added beautiful flowers of all colors to prove an act of non-violence,
and just because your views are unpopular, doesn't mean we should be
belligerent and cruel. I, personally, would like to talk to you some
time just to hear how your ideas work (just a fascination of mine as a
curious mind) and converse on my views. But, our point is not to make
you mad, but to get your attention. I mean this in all sincerity. I
admire how you stick to your beliefs, however, being stubborn and
sometimes arrogant is a serious downfall in winning people over. Yes,
I agree that minors shouldn't have access to rated R movies, M rated
games and graphic novels, but to damn the whole industry? Thats going
a bit to the extreme, no? Understand where we are coming from. I might
not be very old, but I know my fair share of strife (in the form of
rods holding my left leg together, thank the Army^^) and I've seen a
lot, too. I'm going to keep this brief so I don't take too much more
of your time. Please, don't just disregard us!

FFJ in the Edmonton Sun!

February 12th, 2006 (06:09 pm)

http://www.edmontonsun.com/Entertainment/Spotlight/2006/02/12/1438440-sun.html

A fascinating blurb about FFJ popped up. The Sun is known to do suprisingly pertinent spots on people and subjects in the industry that the mainstream can overlook, but its still an ink-and-print newspaper. Awesome.
