Default need a website? Don't do this!

Ok, I just find this hilarious.

Here's the USA Breakdancer's website:

http://www.usabreakdancers.com

and here's the "New York City Players" website:

http://www.nycplayers.net

They didn't even bother changing the list of previous clients and claim the USABreak Dancers resume as their own!!!

Then, to top it off, "Big D" sent promo to the AGENTS and FESTIVALS that book the USA Breakdancers (people who are quite familiar with their website) -- thus instantly branding themselves as the jerks they are and insuring that they will not be getting booked any time soon.

I called "Big D" and asked him if he was aware that his site was a blantant rip off of the USABD site and even copied the text verbatim. His reply was "There ain't no verbatim there, money."
He also called me "G" and "Dawg." I really hate it when white people try to talk ghetto. I mean, he could at least done a French accent. That would've been cool!

Hey Julio,

Tell us some "Big D" stories.

I will call Big D**k and let him know how I feel about this.
I will also contact the agents and producers who booked our show in the past and ask them to look out for these jerks.
Not only am I going to try to black ball them from doing official paid gigs and festivals. I will also talk to a couple of my old friends on the streets of New York or any other city these guys try to work in. I can make it happen i'm not a rookie on the streets I been aruond the block a few times. I got friends at all the major hot spots across the united states, except for Key west. Believe me these guys are gonna have a hard time trying to find a place to work with out being f****ed with by other bucket players and break dance groups. I know it sounds like i'm blowing this out of proportion but i'm not. This guy Big D has done this type of s**t in the past to us. Not only has he try'd to use us as his ticket to success he is steeling an act from a couple friends of mine as well. Why do I say he steeling my friends act? Because he does not want to egknowledge them he doesn't even mention them on there bootleg website.
If he at least would say he was inspired by these guys and learned his bucket playing skills from them then I guess it would be ok for him to do some of the act but not the whole act. Then on top of that try to sell it by steeling there friends website Jesus how f****'n unapprecitive can a person be?

What I find so funny is that what "big d" did looks like a REALLY bad counterfeit version of the USABD site. Like when you see guys on the street selling "Rolecks" watches.

Well, you know Julio, plagerism is the sincerest form of flattery.

Uncool. For the most part. However, you've got to like the "holy shit I've got a hernia" bio pic.

yeah. They could have stolen your credit cards too.
Wait. Now that I've mentioned it... you'd better check your wallets.

Gav, I just noticed your profile's "interests" section -- you sew cakes??? Now, that's talent!

back on topic, I have a hard time understanding how some people can't see five feet into the future to realize that this might not be a good long-term plan. A little wisdom is an asset for a decent life.
