I spent some time today reading through the 40 page epic on Bill’s internet use which is apparently some ‘sort of’ evidence. Good Lord, I must admit I’m a bit at a loss for words – my suspicions have all been confirmed. The US Attorney actually has composed an epic of ad hominems complete with a whole section on the ever popular Reductio ad Hitlerum. If you recall I posted that he’d do this before I actually saw the document.
And against my advice earlier, Boyd Rice has been cited as evidence of foul play also. You may remember my earlier post on Boyd Rice and his prize winning Jelly. Apparently this jelly artists music is so insidious that merely listening to Boyd Rice renders one a criminal. Obviously he doesn’t know the first thing about Boyd Rice. Or that he works with jelly.
Since I’ve already pointed out that it would be stupid for anyone to follow these three strategies, it’s heartening to know that no one listened, and that a 40 page compendium of ad hominems and the inevitable reduction to Hitler argument has been used against my advice. Or other words there doesn’t appear to be any evidence. It is however evidence that the US Attorney doesn’t pay very much attention to what is on this site.
And other than verified IPs, how does one get evidence of…internet use…in Mexico…two years ago???? My guess is that it can’t be done – hence 40 pages of internet comments, selected from a CD of about 10,000 pages on topics which bear a vague resemblance to other comments. In other words, out of those 10,000 pages only 40 even had a remote ground for comparison. That’s a pretty low ratio all things considered. Some of these comparisons are stupid too – for example the repetition of the word ‘pig’ to describe legislative officials – is common slang.
But there are a couple of other things worth pointing out. Namely the unexpected appearance of Cannibal Corpse lyrics. Now before anyone gets carried away with their lyrical content, Cannibal Corpse are actually quite main stream in metal these days – and despite their lyrics, have appeared in ‘Ace Ventura – Pet Detective‘. Yep – Jim Carrey is a Cannibal Corpse fan…that’s how serious Cannibal Corpse are. From an interview with Cannibal Corpse:
SINCE YOUR APPEARANCE IN “ACE VENTURA” WITH JIM CARREY HAS ANY OTHER MOVIE DEALS OR ANYTHING ELSE COME FROM THAT? No, not at all. That was just a one time deal. We do still see the residuals from the movie which is good. It’s good seeing a check once in awhile. The movie did so well all over the world that we are still seeing some cash from it. So that’s cool. It was a lot of fun & great exposure. I don’t think we would ever turn down another opportunity. It was great! HOW DID YOU GET THAT PART? Actually Jim Carrey is a big Death Metal fan & particularly a fan of CANNIBAL CORPSE. So he actually requested that we were in the movie. We felt honored! We lived in Buffalo at the time & we flew down to Miami. We met the director & Jim Carrey. It was awesome & it was a lot of fun! src:http://www.beowolfproductions.com/CannibalCorpseInterview.html
Yes, even Jim Carrey knows they aren’t serious about the lyrics.
So if both Boyd Rice and Cannibal Corpse are musicians who write ‘offensive’ stuff in jest, this throws a different interpretative slant on the material allegedly sent by Bill. Honestly, it all looks like bad joke or a hoax gone hideously wrong. Someone probably thought it would funny to send this stuff under Bill’s name, pretend to be him, then disappeared never to heard from again once they realised it would have serious consequences.
Speaking of bad jokes, I see the request for an anonymous jury has been made again. Someone must be worried that the jurors run the risk of being bored to death by listening to five days worth of facebook dialogue and ad hominems. Actually I feel sorry for them – imagine having to listen to five days worth of this stuff – that’s one email a day. All day. From 9-5. For five days. I hope they get well paid for jury service in America – here it is a pittance. The only thing the jury is at risk of is extreme boredom from having to listen to this stuff.
