  1. I just...

     

    ...logged onto my old website for the first time in six months, with the intention of posting some new writing this week. I haven't posted in a long time-- nearly a year. I'm not sure I'll go through with it, but I logged in, at least, I guess to prove that the log-in information still works. Or something.

  2. And it only gets weirder...

     

     

     

    METALLICA – Guitarist Spent Million For “Conan” Art?

     

    METALLICA’s lead guitarist, Kirk Hammett, is reportedly disgusted with the

    way famed 82 year old artist Frank Frazetta is being treated by certain members in the Frazetta family, who – get this – are allegedly holding the elderly art legend against his own will in Florida.

     

    Frazetta retained all the original Conan paintings, and long refused to part with them. Many were displayed at the Frazetta Museum in East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania. In 2009, Frazetta’s “Conan the Conqueror” painting was the first to be offered for sale, and was purchased by a private collector for $1 million.

     

    The supposed buyer was none other than Kirk Hammett, better known for being the lead guitar player in heavy metal’s biggest band. He is said to have purchased Frazetta’s epic “Conan the Conqueror” painting for the hefty million dollar amount. Now Metallica is apparently stepping-up to the plate to support The Frank Frazetta Museum re-opening, Frank Sr. and Frank Jr.’s Freedom, and helping put an end to the insanity.

     

    Word has it that Kirk was willing to shell-out the 50K needed to bail Frank Frazetta Jr. out, after his apparent false arrest in mid December of 2009, which was allegedly engineered by Frank Sr’s other son Billy Frazetta and his attorney Gerard Geiger, who are said to have now hi-jacked the entire Frazetta Estate (worth around 100 million dollars) over the past 7 months.

     

    Frazetta is also famous for his art being used for rock album covers, such as Yngwie Malmsteen’s War To End All Wars from 2001. His incredible works of art have been used by other top hard rock acts such as Nazareth, Molly Hatchet, and Wolfmother.

     

    Frank & Ellie Frazetta had swore that the Conan paperback book covers would never be sold and would always remain together as a collection, permanently on display in the Frank Frazetta Museum. Privately Frank Frazetta said to numerous witnesses prepared to testify:

     

    “If I agree to sell this painting. Will this FINALLY bring peace to my family?”

     

    At this point, it was hoped by Ellie’s Museum staff that the Conan sale would not only placate the 3 salivating children, and Dr. Death but a small portion of the proceeds would also help with the planned expansion of the Museum and this years 10th Anniversary celebration ( 2000-2010 ), but the million dollars in cash was promptly transferred without Frank Frazetta’s knowledge or approval into the new back account of a “Frazetta Properties” LLC created as a front for Billy, Heidi and Holly’s under-handed activities. Frank and Ellie’s personal / business account was also bled dry by these Unholy 3 of 6 figures in cash.

     

    Frank Frazetta got word of Billy Frazetta attempting to actually cash the Metallica Million, and withdraw all of the money in one shot. When the bank refused to hand over the money, Billy proceeded to have a major public meltdown in front of numerous witnesses at the bank. Teller’s are prepared to testify to this fact.

     

    Hammet reportedly has shown great concern for possibly contributing to the current circumstances at the Frazetta Museum compound, with his 1 million dollar purchase of a Frank Frazetta masterpiece.

     

    Both Frank Jr. and Kevin were present, along with 3 other Museum staff members, when a valiant attempt was made to prevent any more art thefts by Heidi, Billy, and Holly, ( after they repeatedy changed the locks of the Museum ). Frank Jr. and Kevin ( and crew ) tried to lock Frank Frazetta’s masterpiece paintings away in a New York City Museum Art. This dramatic event occured sfter the classic original Frazetta painting “Kane of The Golden Sea” was stolen in November of 2009. And after other repeated art thefts by Billy, Heidi and Holly and the bogus company Frazetta Management continued it’s shady dealings.

  3. Sure. Now that he's been released and had a hearing it's a reasonably safe bet they're handling the rest of this quietly.

     

    In the First Assistant District Attorney Michael Mancuso's opinion, "It's an intra-family dispute that really should be resolved between them if possible."

     

    (An intra-family dispute.. .....using a backhoe.)

     

     

    BleedingCool is reporting, "UPDATE: The Pocono Record has updated, naming Frank Bush and Kevin Clement as accomplices. Heidi MacDonald points out that Clement is the organiser of the Chiller Theatre Expo horror conventions held twice a year in New Jersey."

     

     

  4. Letter may decide defendant's fate in Frazetta art case

     

    Legal issues and family loyalties continue to muddy the Frazetta art heist case.

     

    But the emergence of a notarized document could signal a death blow for the prosecution's case against the elder son of the world famous fantasy artist.

     

    Though Frank Frazetta may no longer have the authority to grant his son permission to take the paintings, the document granting that permission may douse any concept of intent to commit a crime.

     

    On Dec. 10, the artist's son, Alfonso Frank Frazetta, known as Frank Jr., was arrested after police discovered he'd broken into the Frazetta museum in Marshalls Creek and removed about 90 paintings worth $20 million.

     

    Frank Jr. told police his father gave him permission to remove the paintings — but when police called Frank Sr. in Florida to confirm it, the artist denied giving his son the OK.

     

    [..]

     

    The issue of Frank Sr.'s competency is also central to battle over the estate. Lori Frazetta has said Frank Sr. suffers from dementia, and is being influenced by Frank Jr.'s three siblings, rivals in the dispute.

     

    Not true, said Gerry Geiger, an attorney with Stroudsburg-based Newman, Williams, Mishkin, Corveleyn, Wolfe, & Fareri. Geiger represents Frank Sr. and said the artist is, without question, competent to oversee his own affairs.

     

    Frank Jr.'s bail, originally set at $500,000, was reduced to $50,000 Wednesday, and he has been released on bail. Next step: Frank Jr.'s preliminary hearing was rescheduled for Jan 6.
