This week’s content comes to us from http://www.everythingisterrible.com/, from the DJ/collage artist Defenestrator III (look for his tag on the posts there). In honor of the great work he does for the collective, or whatever you would call the folks at Everything is Terrible, I will now be posting all my podcasts in 160 kbps. I don’t think 82 megabytes is that much for most casual computing. It may put a bit of a strain on my cloud storage, but I think it’s the right thing to do. If you don’t want to download the music, please check me out on Soundcloud, at https://soundcloud.com/hellbound-allee.

It’s almost as if they borrowed a page from Scientology. Criticized? Accuse them of pedophilia!
Originally posted on Skeptical Humanities:
You might remember last year how people who thought they were acting in the interests of the Burzynski Clinic issued quasi-legal threats to bloggers who took issue with his unproven “antineoplaston” treatments. I am specifically thinking of Marc Stephens, who contacted Andy Lewis, Peter Bowditch, and Rhys Morgan. As I understand it, Burzynski had hired Stephens to do web-optimization work, cleaning up B’s reputation (no small feat considering who was signing the checks!). Stephens apparently interpreted this as a green light to send a high school student a picture of his house, the unmistakable threat: “We know where you live.” This was when I first wrote about Burzynski, I believe.
Another Burzynski supporter (one at the same IP address as the Burzynski Patient Group) put up a website–albeit very briefly–which painted prominent skeptics…and somehow me… as pedophiles. (That’s my name in between those of two of my heroes, Simon Singh and Stephen Fry! Squee! Best. Defamation. Ever.) When it was discovered, the site was instantly taken down, but The 21st Floor has the goods.
Well, people who seem to somehow think that they represent Burzynski are at it again; this time it is his propagandist Eric Merola (@BurzynskiMovie), the guy behind the straight-to-Internet stinker Burzynski. He is currently putting together a sequel (working title: Burzynski II: This Time It’s Peer-Reviewed).
