So I’d like to be writing today about the new reviews out for Hank III’s new album Damn Right, Rebel Proud, or maybe about the Metal Farm Magazine I got in the mail this morning. Or maybe I would be writing Forgotten Outlaw Part 3 or Ode to the Hellbetties of the past.
But instead, yet again, my focus is on people who are supposed to be ‘friends’ of the Hank III and Reinstate Hank movements, who are really a bunch of assholes who are wasting my time.
This only has a little to do with the bulletin that the Hank III music site put out trying to push a Hank III women’s necklace (that has since been taken down). Once again, the fucktards crawled out of the woodwork to try to say that Hank III was ‘selling out.’
People, Hank III couldn’t sell out if he tried. It is literally impossible. He’s hasn’t been laboring in virtual obscurity for 12+ years when he could’ve rode his name all the way to the bank because he’s a sell out. You know, it’s not worth even trying to argue that point any more.
Problem with JMC & Fake Sites
My main venom is aimed at this guy who goes by the handle ‘JMC’. He might be your friend, you might even think he’s a nice dude, but that guy was the reason that I did not sleep last night, and the reason that I’m typing this stuff out right now when I have much better things to do.
I’m not going to give you the whole story because it’s too long and convoluted, but if you trust my judgment, you will believe me when I say this guy is a bad apple.
He has been harassing, intimidating, and cyberbullying people who are BIG parts of the Free Hank III and Reinstate Hank movements for weeks now. The only reason I hadn’t done anything up to this point is I was giving him every opportunity to change his habits because I do acknowledge that he is trying to help spread the word. But yesterday he went too far.
Those of you that know Restless in Amsterdam know that she is the biggest hearted, purest-hearted, and kindest member of this whole thing.
Don’t take my word for it, just go down to Restless’s comments section and read the comments left on it by two of JMC’s sites: a fake David Allan Coe site, and a fake Reinstate Hank site. He also has either hacked her site, or attempted to hack her site.
So please do everyone a favor and:
1. Go to the sites linked below.
2. Go all the way to the bottom.
3. Click ‘Report Abuse’.
4. Click ‘Cyberbullying’.
5. And in the notes section telling them he has been harassing you and your friends.
FAKE REINSTATE HANK WILLIAMS

It doesn’t matter that they are private accounts, and please, if you find this person in your friends, delete them.
I know I will get some people saying this dude is a nice guy and fuck me for doing this, or that he lost his meds or whatever. I don’t care. There is a whole back story here with this guy, but I don’t care to get into it at this point. All I can say is that he crossed a line this time, and furthermore, he’s running fake sites and deceiving people.
I know I ask a lot of you people, but please do this, not for me, but for Restless in Amsterdam.
If I Get Deleted
I went over this drill back when we were taking on Curb Records head on, but i feel inclined to mention it again: If I get deleted, then I will rebuild and please look for my comments on the Hank III BAND SITE, and also help spread the word so people can find me again.
This whole thing is so childish I can even being to explain how sick I feel right now. I am working to move this entire thing off of MySpace because I’m tired of all this bullshit. MySpace is great for networking, but having to deal with people like this is just too much. I do this because I enjoy it, but when I’m losing sleep and it’s cutting into other aspects of my personal life, it’s too much.
Thank you to everyone who has and will report this creep.
