Sweet Doc Hoax?

Be the 1st to vote.

Update 2/26/2020:

Pale Bo, who I interviewed here, is reviving this story in his latest podcast. I still find the whole story hard to believe. If it’s a hoax, it’s a really good one. I still enjoy the music.

[The Radio Vagabond] 148 – Finding Sugar in Cape Town #theRadioVagabond

I really enjoyed the documentary Sugar Man. Of course, I never heard of the lead character. Apparently no-one had, outside of South Africa and Detroit. Now the director is dead. Should I question the whole premise of the movie? Is it itself a tall tale?

Malik Bendjelloul, the Swedish filmmaker who won an Oscar for directing the documentary Searching for Sugar Man, was found dead Tuesday in Stockholm. He was 36.

The incredible story behind ‘Searching for Sugar Man’

According to The Associated Press, police spokesperson Pia Glenvik confirmed the death but did not specify the cause, though she ruled out crime as a possible reason.

The movie was great, however. Even it is a total fabrication. I also like the music! Comments, musician fakeologists Simon Shack or Tom Dalpra?

Hero Zamboni goalie story – it’ll make a great movie

like this

Nothing, and I mean nothing, makes front page news in Canada like hockey stories. Good ones and bad ones all can make the front page for days.

This story has spent more than two days at the top, and it keeps on going. For that reason alone, we must question whether or not it is scripted.

At this point, I am falling on the scripted side.

Even those that believe it are getting tired of it.

Remember, Major League Sports falls under the sports entertainment category. Outcomes will be engineered to maximize profit like any other Corporation.

David Ayres continued to come on in relief Monday night during an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

The 42-year-old, made famous over the weekend for his emergency goaltending appearance with the Carolina Hurricanes, played the piano among other fun activities while on air with Colbert.

Child custody possible murder mystery in Milton

Be the 1st to vote.

This possible murder suicide story looks fishy for a few reasons, including another no-tears mother.

The four-year-old girl found deceased with her biological father in Rattlesnake Point Conservation Area late Sunday night has been identified by family as Keira Kagan.

It reminded me of one of my favorite docs that I am now quite certain was fake, called Dear Zachary.

It’s well worth a watch. Its purpose, like the aforementioned case, may be to enact laws surrounding child custody when there are mental health issues.

The park is near a rapidly developing city near Toronto, so it’s possible public support for safety improvements may be an issue as well.

There have been a few stories of people falling off the big cliffs at the park.

Suspicious case of drunk driving

like this

This case smells like bad fish.

This of course is the time of year that people drink to excess and many still drive.

It’s therefore a good idea to stage collisions to scare the pants off people who don’t get the message.

This case seems real from the photos, but the biggest tip we have a staged event is the increasingly ubiquitous publication ban. There’s only one reason in an open society to have such a ban: to hide a phony court case and not have to provide a detailed story.

Otherwise we may as well be in a backwards third world tin pot dictatorship where justice is not seen to be meted out.

The man accused of killing two 19-year-old pedestrians in an impaired driving crash in Scarborough wiped away tears and appeared emotional as he was denied bail in court Monday evening, less than 24 hours after the crash. Michael Johnson, 40, of Pickering, mostly kept his head bowed down in his hands throughout his lengthy bail hearing in a Scarborough courtroom. At times, he could be seen breathing heavily, his body shaking, before Justice Thomas Cleary made his ruling. Bail is typically denied in ca

It’s good to check the players – and since no lawyers are mentioned, let’s check the judge, Justice Thomas Cleary.

This screen shot shows he’s paid plenty. I didn’t know judging paid so well.

Google really doesn’t have much record of the judge. Is this normal for there to be next to no record of any trials over the years?

There’s only one other suspicious trial from a few years ago that comes up.

Having the case involve international students (and there are plenty here propping up our university system) allows the perps to leave the vicsim stories undeveloped and unsupported, since no family members are going to be here.

Johnson was brought into court in handcuffs, wearing a black jacket, dark blue pants and black shoes, his hair clean and short.

About a dozen people were in the audience for the hearing. One woman, seated with Johnson’s family, could be seen sobbing throughout.

As the judge read his decision, one family member put her hands over her mouth. Another fell to her knees in tears.

As is typical, a publication ban was imposed on the information introduced during the proceeding.

I thought if one was detained in our system, you didn’t get to wear your own clothes. An orange jump suit is the usual garb.

9 charges, other small clues indicating hoaxery.

Beware of 3:30

Be the 1st to vote.

Clearly the most dangerous time to be on the road.

Either this story is real or

  • End of budget year, time to replace older cars
  • Scene is beside police repair center
  • Reports of 6 police cars wrecked to stop the car?
  • 33 is hoax code

I passed this scene on the way to work – they even have a road closed sign all set up. Handy for police to have that!

Coded vegan story

Not sure why exactly raw fruits and vegetables and bresst milk would lead to malnutrition, but his story has some hoax code numerology.

Problem is we have a video arraignment.

Could this one be real?

Old lady Leary kept a lantern in her bed…

The toddler who died Sept. 27 in the care of his parents, Ryan and Sheila O’Leary, weighed 17 pounds, police reports indicate. His diet was supplemented with breast milk.

Falling air conditioners

Something smells here.

She was our little angel

A community in Scarborough gathered on Saturday afternoon to mourn the loss of a young girl who died in hospital after she was struck by an air conditioning unit that fell eight storeys off the side of a city-owned apartment building last week.

Update: GoFundMe goes from 11 to 33,000$.

Afghan Presidebt releases a statement.

The public housing system, of which this building is part of, is in a constant state of disrepair, including problematic air conditioner mountings.

Could this be the event required to get more public money?

Another classic problem/reaction/solution psyop.

Checking for tears

This story is emerging large in the Toronto media. This, by fakeology definition, is enough to raise doubt.

Are we watching reality or LARPing?

I’ve watched the first two minutes of this mother, and only saw smiles from the male to her side and an absence of tears from her.

Duping delight @ 1:25?

Deconstruct.

The mother of Devan Bracci-Selvey, who died Monday, hasn’t slept since that morning. She’s afraid if she closes her eyes she’ll have to relive her 14-year-old son’s stabbing.

On Monday afternoon, Devan was attacked in front of his mother outside Sir Winston Churchill Secondary School in Hamilton’s east end. The teen boy later died in hospital.

Real bridge collapse?

Be the 1st to vote.

The 9/11 collapse videos were fake, and so was that old Taiwanese plane over the highway crash. How’s about this one?

An oil tanker’s front wheels had almost reached safety when Taiwan’s Nanfang’ao Bridge toppled into the waterway, and the scary moment was caught on several CCTV cameras. Rescue operations are currently underway.

Discord is popular. We use it here.

Gamers and apparent murderers, terrorists, and neo Nazis use it.

Could something be in the works for Discord? (who owns/makes money from it anyway?)

Here’s a story that took over Toronto today.

“I’ve just slaughtered my entire family, and will most likely spend life in jail if i manage to survive,” a user going by the name Menhaz posted to Discord, software used by hundreds of millions of gamers around the world to communicate online.
