EVEN MORE CASTROFAN SHENIGANS!

August 25, 2008

While I understand that not everyone reads the comments, I have received a couple that I think should be highlighted in their own section.

I think these women are trying to get personal with J Castro. The one organizing this cash card is doing this so she can personally give it to him. She organized a “date” at one of the tour dates when J. Castro came out to greet fans. There she was, with the table, candles, napkins, ready to have a date with him. She also spent 10 minutes taping him at another fan greet, monopolizing his entire time and conversation.

These women think they can buy J. Castro.

Notice how anyone who posts any comment (on DDB) other than “WooHoo… We LOVE HIM” is shuttled off to the bottom of the board to shut them up. That website if becoming more like The Stepford Wives every day. It is scarey.

Is this the “Date Night” in question? LET ME KNOW!

I knew when Stoner J came up with his “Date Night” Vlogging idea for his fans that it would not just be seen as a cute idea. Some people were going to take it to a whole other level.

Jason’s fans have totally joined the Claymates and the Soul Patrol in Crazyland.

In addition to the two grand theyr’e trying to raise to give him a cash gift at the end of the tour, they’re also trying to raise $20,000 to have him do a Private Concert for them. Yep, they actually contacted his agent to find out much it would cost for them to basically buy Jason. One of them also offered to finance his album if he can’t get a record deal. Jason will never want for anything again if these women have their way (at least until the new season of Idol starts and they develop new mid-life crushes on another boy young enough to be their son or grandson). It’s really kinda sick. They’re all trying to one-up each other and get him better and better gifts just to get a nod of approval or an ounce of attention from him. And these aren’t teenagers…it’s adult women.

Now they’re planning to lock the threads on the web site so that “outsiders” can’t see what they’re doing. They really are becoming like a cult and anyone who doesn’t follow the leader gets the shaft. They’ve also banned many topics from being discussed. Pretty much anything that doesn’t have to do with Jason’s MySpace plays, Jason’s Pants and Gifts for Jason are off-limits.

Poor Jason probably doesn’t have a clue about any of it. Plus he needs them to buy his CD if he ever manages to put one out without a record label so he can’t risk offending them by telling them to back off. When people say that your Video is the highlight of their week and they cry when you don’t post one, there’s omething seriously wrong.

And here is something else, sent to me, which I think is also a bit odd. Are the Castros just being naive? Hmmm….

His mother posted in the prayers thread because a man owned the rights to the domain name they wanted to use. She said she thought his having it was illegal. And she wanted him to GIVE this to her! GIVE IT…..like she deserved it! Then she said she did not post in general because she did not want people to go after this men.

THEN WHAT DOES SHE DO??

She posts his full name and address there! Plus the people who apparently sold him the domain name or something. Their complete name and address was on there, too.

VFTW received an email from a Jason Castro fan that does not do much to proclaim his family’s manipulation of these fans is all out of sheer flattery and naivite.

“I saw on the website about Jason Castro and his family. I was a really big fan of him while he was on the show, and often read the message boards. One day, I logged into IDF and noticed that I had a PM from one of the other posters on the Jason Castro forum. The PM asked me if I would be willing to donate money to send Jason’s GIRLFRIEND on a mission trip. That’s right…his girlfriend!! What really got me was that this was a request from his mother. When a woman from the board asked what kind of gift Jason would like from his fans, she suggested that everyone donate so that Jason’s girlfriend Mandy can go on a mission trip. I was shocked that his family and friends would be using his fame in order to benefit themselves. When I posted my opinions on IDF, one of the brainwashed freaks told me that “Mission Trips are close to Jason’s heart”. That may be true, but I refused to take part in funding them for him or his family and friends!”

If the above email is, in fact, true, perhaps Jeff Archuleta now deserves that Father of The Year coffee mug. I find it amusing when people think of American Idol as a show for teenagers and children. It’s become something more akin to a mid-life crises for many of these women. AGAIN — Not all fans are CRAZY. But the ones who take it over the edge, they don’t only ruin it for everyone else, they have the potential to ruin the object of their desire’s future musical career.

    Geez woman, get a grip. I’ve heard your excuses before. Stop posting the same shit to defend Castro. Why do YOU care so much? If people are on Castro’s case let them. I think it’s also because he sucks and is an annoying cutesy dumbass.

    So go get ’em, Top Idol!

    Jason’s fans and family are very charitable and it saddens me to see the way things are being taken out of context here. Here are a few clarifications and notables:

    Jason’s church sold Jason Castro t-shirts and the proceeds went to the church’s mission projects fund and not to Jason. Jason himself has participated in several of these church missions to South America and Russia as a teenager.

    In the few days that Jason had off between the end of Idol and the start of the tour, he donated his time to sing to children in the burn center of a Dallas based hospital. He requested no photos or videos be taken and never talked about this in the press.

    When Jason’s grandfather died of cancer, his fans raised $1100 and donated it to hospice.

    When Jason’s church, family and fans heard about David Cook’s brother being sick, they started a prayer chain for him.

    When JasonCastroMusic domain name was requested by the Castros, the current owner said he would sell it to him for “a price”. Betsy specifically asked fans not to harrass the individual but asked them to pray instead.

    The laptop was given to him by a lady named Sherry who works for Apple. The other idols previuosly received laptops from the same person. Michael Johns fans bought him a laptop and he accepted it. The most expensive gift Jason has received to date was a $150 video camera that several fans went together to buy as a way to say thanks for doing his weekly date nights.

    Jason has never asked for or encouraged fans to give him gifts. He is a giving person and his fans want a small way to give something back by giving him books, momentos, etc. If he were to not accept them, he would seem ungrateful. Not only has he sweetly accepted the gifts, but he made the fans feel special by wearing the bracelets, reading the many books, wearing their homemade shirts, etc. I have never contributed towards a gift for Jason, but I don’t find fault in the fans who want to give him something special.

    You’ve already won that point. It’s unfortunate that the ‘you’re right, tard’ in my previous post went right over your li’l pudding head.

    Salomey – soon. Hosting issues and personal matters got in the way.

    Guess what, twotards, it doesn’t matter if it was identical. Someone saw the opportunity and purchased the domain. The Castroleeches could have too, and didn’t. Sucks to be them. They can always whine to WIPO and see what a court says about it.

    However, what the buyer did was NOT illegal.

    No it’s not, buying and selling domains is a legitimate business. Don’t go spouting rubbish when you don’t know what you’re talking about. The buyer did not set up a ‘vindictive’ site, they have legal ownership of it.

    You’re right, tard. I shouldn’t have used the word illegal but it is actionable in civil court under the Anti-Cybersquatting Consumer Protection Act of 1999 which states that “Any person who registers a domain name that consists of the name of another living person, or a name substantially and confusingly similar thereto, without that person’s consent, with the specific intent to profit from such name by selling the domain name for financial gain to that person or any third party, shall be liable in a civil action by such person.”

    The domain in question was identical to Castro’s myspace music url of jasoncastromusic, was purchased in April of this year, and was being shopped out to Castro fan sites, all actions that presumably made it very difficult to prove that the domain wasn’t registered in bad faith for the purpose of making money on Castro’s notoriety and that Castro had rights to it.

    Oh, Mary, Mary… How I disagree with you…

    “You have your right to comments”
    (Actually, I do agree with this part.)

    “but you have no idea about the situations you write about.”
    And you do? You a close friend of the Castros, or do you just read blogs and message boards like the rest of us? Cos’ if you do, then we’re on the same page.

    “Jason and his family far from manipulate and in fact Jason is all about encouraging service and volunteering and helping others.”
    ??? Where does he/do they encourage all these wonderful things? Don’t get me wrong, Jason does seem like a nice guy, and I sometimes wonder if he’s actually aware of this whole circus, but I’m starting to seriously doubt his mother’s intentions here… I just find the whole story pretty fishy… Like for starters, isn’t Apple an Idol sponsor? Isn’t making laptops like, one of their specialties? And if Apple are too cheap to give him one, can’t he afford it on what he’s making on the tour?

    And if Mama Castro is soooo charitable, then why doesn’t she suggest to Jason’s fans to donate that money (I actually read the whole thread on the Daydream forum last night, and I believe the amount was 2000$) to Luke, because you know, health is like, vital? You’d think keeping a guy alive would be way more charitable than creating a fund to launch the music career of a handsome and talented yourng man who just got whole months of exposure on national TV…
    And if for some reason, these folks have an unexplainable aversion to Luke, there are plenty of good causes out there, you don’t have to look very far to find one.

    “Everyone loves gifts”
    Yes they do. But 2000$ That’s one hell of a gift… Hey, I hope I get 2000$ for my next Bday! That’ll cover my rent and utilities for 3 whole months!
    Seriously though, I can understand gifts in the shape of teddy bears, homemade cards, a little piece of jewelry, because at least, it’s personal; but a loaded credit card, really? Isn’t that what you usually give to those luxury hookers?

    “and people are giving because Jason has actually given to them and allowed many hearts to heal by what they get from his music.”
    Cute; you must be a romantic. I’m not. I can understand what you’re saying to a certain extend, but you gotta remember that Jason doesn’t do music just to heal you guys’ hearts; he does it because he likes it, loves it probably. Believe me, I know a lot of musicians, most of whom struggle for years to put an album together. And somehow, they keep at it, and that, is because they love it. No one gets into music just for the sex and the drugs; rock’n’roll is the biggest part of the trilogy.

    “I think you protest a little too much and there might just be a jealousy motivating you.”

    Here we go. The pettiest of the petty: jealousy. The same old flag we wave when we don’t have anything substancial to say, but wanna keep talking anyway.
    Has it occured to you that certain representatives of the human species will sometimes speak up and say that if smells like shit, then maybe there is shit in it? Instead of blindly following the leader and ignoring the stink?

    I think this whole “Future for Jason” crap is completely ridiculous, over the top, it’s negative publicity for him, and it makes his fans come across as fanatical gullible blinded weirdos who should really think about getting a effing life.

    “Jason lives for and answers to a higher authority — God.”
    I won’t comment on this since God and I aren’t that close.

    PS: Sorry for being so long-winded. It’s just that sometimes… You know…

    PS again: Idle Tard, (I also “know” you from VFTW ;))what the hell is up with your blog? When’s it back?

    -Cyber-squatting on another person’s name is illegal. The owner of the domain mentioned above was shopping it around to try to start a bidding war on it and make the most money he could. Domain owner information is publicly posted and available on the internet unless the domain owner makes the information private. The owner of the domain mentioned did not make the information private.

    No it’s not, buying and selling domains is a legitimate business. Don’t go spouting rubbish when you don’t know what you’re talking about. The buyer did not set up a ‘vindictive’ site, they have legal ownership of it.

    Well, Jason was very smart to not allow gift drives that aren’t for charity on his site. Otherwise there would be a dozen underway already.

    I agree Jason can’t control what these fans do and they have put him in a difficult situation. It would help if his family stopped okaying it though. In a way I sympathize because it’s not like Jason is the first Idol to get gifts. They’re all getting them to some degree and his fan base is large so he’s getting more. Also a few of these fans seem nuts, like they are trying to buy their way into his life. That’s not a good thing.

    Well, there’s all the crazy TopIdol’s been talking about right there. You’re telling TopIdol she has no idea of the situations she’s talking about – then go on to ascribe motives and reasonings and telling us what Jason is all about. Hypocrite, thy name is CastroTard.

    -On Jason’s official site that was launched last night, donations and gift drives aren’t allowed unless it’s for charity. He can’t put any control over fans on sites that aren’t his own.

    -The “family friend” from IDF is a tag-along looking for fame drops that fall off of Jason. Jason didn’t know who she was when he was asked about her…. that was posted on IDF in a tour recap.

    Yes, the statements made about encouraging fans to contribute money so that Jason’s girlfriend could go on a mission trip are true. This occured on the American Idol Forum when he was still on the show. After the fans collected a ton of money for the balloons, they had some money left over and decided they wanted to do more and it was suggested by the Castro family or their friends that the money could be used as a donation for his girlfriend to go on a mission trip so that she would have something to do during the summer while he was on tour. Fortunately, this donation drive never happened. However, when Jason mentioned recently that his girlfriend’s birthday is coming up and gave the date, there was talk about donating money to buy her a birthday gift. Because there’s so much jealousy towards her, that idea didn’t really take off. Jason’s brother also posted asking fans to turn over their photos of him for free to be used for merchandise that the family is now selling on his web site. Jason did get his new computer. He told someone at a recent show that “a fan” gave it to him then his mother quickly posted that the company that makes the computer gave it to him. Guess the company is a fan?! Current donation drives are underway in Camp Castro for a plaque celebrating his 2 million MySpace & an expensive ring. Fearing withdrawl when the tour ends, Jason’s fans are now busy planning a “Dreadhead Convention” in either Vegas or Orlando. Their target date id January and I’m sure he will be required to attend as the guest of honor. I’m also sure they’ll pay for his plane ticket to the convention and put him and his family up in a nice hotel. This will give them more face time with Jason to take pictures of him (including lots of shots of his backside so they can swoon over the pants!) and give him more gifts hoping that he’ll say something to them or remember them.
    I love Jason, voted for him on the show and will buy his CD. But many of his fans are really crossing a line and because of that, I am staying away from all of his fan sites. It’s just gotten way, way out of hand.

    Yes, that is the date night and it caused a real shitstorm. This one woman organized the whole thing and it took up virtually all of his time when he was outside with fans. Meanwhile other fans who had stood out in the sun for hours to meet him languished farther down the line. Some even gave up and left. They were not happy and some posted their grievances and were basically told to shut up and get over it by the other group.

    Most fans didn’t like this stunt and it hasn’t happened since. She still shows up and videos him outside a lot of venues and pushes herself into the situation by asking him questions while other people are trying to get a pic with him or an autograph.

    This same woman is the “brains” behind the cash card endeavor. Of course, she has appointed herself as the person who will present it to him.

    I was on IDF and I never heard anything about sponsoring the girlfriend’s mission but I came into the Castro camp somewhat late and may have missed it.

    I have to wonder how much, if anything, Jason knows about this sort of thing. From what I’ve seen he seems like the kind of person who would be embarrassed at the thought of people collecting cash for him, not to mention the current controversy.
