The Loose Change gang (Dylan etc)

Seems like such a long time ago, when we were all so young and discovering how hot steel melts. What happened to Dylan, Jason (?) and the other one?

I think Avery is peddling documentaries about a variety of topics. The rest I haven't been up to date with.

Nice to see you again.

You have not missed much. The Loose Change boy I guess, grew up.

ahhh, yes,,, back when I didn't know off the top of my head, or care, the nominal temp that steel or aluminum melts at. It was some time after I knew that there were 7 buildings in the World Trade Center complex and that while every last one of them was destroyed on Sept.11/01, three of them collapsed fully on that day, some time after I knew that the flight numbers of the aircraft involved were 11, 77, 93, and 175, after I knew that these were Boeing 757 and 767 aircraft,,,,,,,,,,,,,in fact it was nigh on a decade and a half ago.
Seems like yesterday!

Dylan is in the poor house, having blown all his money on the last version of LC:

This is chilling:

Three days before we meet, Michael Ruppert, one of the world’s most prominent 9/11 conspiracy theorists, put a bullet in his brain. He was a forefather of the Truth Movement and, at the age of 63, had devolved into a condition of crippling paranoia.
I've seen a similar, although less severe, devolution in David Slesinger, who now sees false flags in everything.

Last I heard Avery was pushing a failed film at sundance; Bermas had to move back to his mother's basement, took a job in a pizzaria and took to begging on Kickstarter for money to get back into broadcasting once Alex Jones fired him. Rowe had to do some time on heroin charges.

I watched a video recently where they menaced with a new Loose Change, IIRC. Can't find it right now but this (older) thread may be relevant: http://www.internationalskeptics.com...d.php?t=271625

It looks like Bermas isn't getting much credit lately. In an old picture of Bermas, Charlie Sheen and Dylan, this is what is posted as the caption:

Quote:
Avery (right) and a production assistant with Charlie Sheen, who considered narrating a later version of Loose Change.
The "production assistant is Bermas.

Bermas has a twitter page where he occasionally demonstrates his paranoia and ignorance of correct apostrophe use.

Oh good... the illuminati's plan to marginalize them is working to perfection.

Ok. If you are going to toss it directly over the plate.....

Bermas is paranoid about correct apostrophe use?

I think you meant "Possessive's are nine tenth's of the law."

Isn't "tenths" in this case simply designating mutiples?

Sorry to hear that!

Perhaps he can dislodge Truthers from their hard-earned money and lightened their wallets once again in order to help him out of his current situation by adding another false story to his long list of disinformation and fabrications that got him rich in the first place.

I would like to send him a handkerchief to dry those little tears. I will only charge him a small sum of $599.99 and will be more than willing to chip in a nickel for shipping and handling.

At this point I don't think he wants any of this. 9/11 "truth" made him believe he was a great film maker. Maybe he has talent in that very limited vocation. I see him as a victim of his success and also a well played pawn of Alex Jones.
