It basically started on CIA Facebook, a few months ago, I saw that Ozzy had an account on Facebook and so I thought it could be somehow interesting to try to know how much we really know about Ozzy.
He claimed to have accepted my Facebook "invitation" apparently due to our mutual interest in the Canadian band called "No Means No". He even mentioned that he himself produced one of the band's record at his home studio back in the eighties. Which, frankly speaking, I found a bit strange.
And, without any surprise, when I started mentioning about him being banned from the CluesForum movement, he then -without any big surprise-quickly set himself into some very predictable defensive mode accusing me of being another shill (basically we all are potential shills to each other) trying to contaminate his own research so far made on the 9/11. To which he reacted pretty badly, then trying hard to pick some of my own published personal info and pictures on my own Facebook account in order to produce another blatant scam made in Ozzy Land, as you can see here on the Flickr links taken from my own Facebook account.
Later, I had a chance to show this other infamous scam fabrication to a few members of the band called "Magma" (I don't know if you've ever heard of this absolutely fantastic band but I highly recommend it to you) and well the least I can say is that their reaction was a mix of laughs and complete weird misunderstandings (I myself am a huge fan of the band, a close friend and already promoted a few concerts for them here in Tokyo).
I could feel that Mr Ozzy had a certain talent for converting an absolute fake story into a credible one , especially when he starts taking someone's personal info leaked or published somewhere on the Web Oddity, while then trying to sell his own made-up story to whoever could buy it there. The least I can say is that I found his own technique quite spectacular, he does look like a very professional shill to me.
Of course, he quickly "befriended" me soon after that episode, and called me "Simon Shack Junior".Which made me smile, I naturally took it a nice compliment.
Here's a more readable version of his own comment :
"And who exactly is 'Pierre-Juan Labeyrie Foie Gras', the guy who just made his first appearance below, running to the defense of Simon in the form of slanderous implication without benefit of substance? Not long ago he responded to a comment I'd left at KillTown's FB page, asking me (mockingly?) (well, yes, I confess) if I was missing the Clues forum.And then he wanted to be friends. I saw he had a photo of himself with nomeansno's John Wright, who is someone I've known for nearly 30 years (I'm working on that one trying to get an official statement from John, the drummer of the band), and so I accepted.
Pierre-Juan Labeyrie plays in a weird and long-running band from France called 'Magma' which was founded by a man named Christian Vander (that is true except that I do not play in the band, only played with some members in different bands). The swarthy dandy with his hair pulled back (merci mon cher) at left is Pierre-Juan Labeyrie and Christian Vander is sitting at back. (...)
Then the very imaginative Ozzy started to make his own made-up story and came to the conclusion that I would be using a fake identity on FB pretending to be "me" (Pierre-Juan Labeyrie) whereas I'm actually Steven Warran, an active member on this forum, and the drummer of the band Magma 'Christian Vander' is no other than Steven Warran himself (!), in brief, "we" are all the same character. The infamous hair comparison test!.Flabbergasting it is, indeed.
(...)This is to say that Christian Vander has been (on) writing Steven Warran's blog. Rather, I suspect that Pierre-Juan Labeyrie writes as Warran and used an image of his sometimes bandmate's head to represent himself (!).
It's also probably noteworthy that both Steven Warran and Pierre-Juan Labeyrie present themselves as gay (oh my oh my).
And Ozzy keeps carrying on in the same vein :
Steven Warran was completely unknown until Simon introduced him to the forum, and that only after an incident when fellow admin HoiPolloi had screwed up and responded on the forum using Simon's ID. Realizing his blunder, that HoiPolloi aka Max Konrardy had actually travelled to Rome and had been researching with Simon there...since, of course, working together online is so very inconvenient unless physically present together.
So, as if to confirm the story, we were then all told that another guy, blogger Steven Warran, had also just popped over for a visit from New York, snapped photos of then and, despite their feigned objections, published those pictures on his blog. And golly gee whiz, that really annoyed then -even though it served as the central support buttressing their improbable narrative.
And his very last attempt in trying hard to convince everyone that Christian Vander and Steven Warran are both the same person...
This is to demonstrate Christian Vander's balding from 2001 to 2009, as well as his changing hair color, before he dyed it darker, to serve as a comparison to the image of 'Steven Warran' circa 2006. Also, the vein (or is it the scar?) on his scalp is perhaps discernible?..
Perhaps, Ozzy, perhaps...
