    Oh, I did not know this. I stand corrected on thinking the caps made it seem unprofessional. Do you have any more legal insight into how valid this letter might be?

    As the creator, administrator, author, host, publisher, and responsible party for your site/blog (and related posts, comments, and archives), I HEREBY DEMAND THAT YOU IMMEDIATELY REMOVE ANY AND ALL MENTIONS OF MY NAME, LIKENESS, ANY IDENTIFYING WORDS, MARKS, OR ABBREVIATIONS; any other comments, mentions, or statements relative to me personally, my career, geographic location, origin, home, business, or my family.
    *dons grammar nazi uniform*
    This statement isn't even grammatically correct, not that there aren't typos and mistakes in legal documents all the time. It should read, "As the creator...for your blog, YOU ARE HEREBY DEMANDED..." Otherwise, the statement reads that "I" am the creator, administrator, etc.

    Plus, unless it's a one-on-one contract between two parties, it doesn't matter what "I" think, it matters what the laws are. It should have been written in third-person to indicate that it is the laws that demand this, not "I". Looks like someone got a lollawyer.

    I don't really believe this Himmmm stuff anymore. I thought it was someone revealing info at first, but now I just think it's someone that maybe knew a thing or two, enjoyed the reactions, and then got attention hungry and started just making a bunch of shit up. If it wasn't about the attention, I doubt they'd try to hint at being RDJ.

    I went through a link that was above and it showed Himmmm responding with "Justin Timberlake" to one of the boy band blinds... but it makes zero sense at all. Just seemed like this person was trying to throw out the name of whatever ex-boy bander would be the most scandalous of a reveal.

    Default Not Sure ...

    Re: 'The Head' that appeared on CDAN after someone posted the link to the legal notice. I am almost certain this is Himmmm. There are some obvious giveaways, and it reads like a very poor attempt to disguise someone's writing style and identity. There are some specifics that point to Himmmm which I'll detail later, but first I'm actually curious to hear what others make of it.[/QUOTE]

    I have no idea how to do this .. hope I am quoting what I wanted to? Anyhow, 'The Head' read was hilarious, so himmm is now testing his comments as " skinny black girl like me". Yikes. Yes, writing style is similar. I think Enty is part of the pool of ID's that is Himmm. Maybe Enty wrote the cease and desist order for TG. I don't know, but when people start using stories re Hollywood pedophiles and rapists as sources of gossip to drive traffic in, something is "stinky". Nice work, I probably used a link that you previously found . I did read "the Head's" blogger profile, what a crock. Hope I posted this correctly, if not, sorry !

    Not too much. If I have question about legality of language, it gets passed off to a contracts administrator or someone similar. I would say, though, that commercial warranty statements and disclaimers are less likely to have typos because they are vetted at several levels and the intent is for them to be read and understood by thousands of people.

    A contract or legal notice, however, can just be between two parties, and in those cases, people will borrow legal "boilerplate" (i.e. - language from other legal documents or notices) to create their own document. In those cases, you will see typos. This person, though, made a pretty big typo, though in confusing "I HEREBY DEMAND THAT YOU" with "YOU ARE HEREBY COMMANDED TO". However, it's still pretty obvious what is being demanded of whom.

    I looked back at the link where the Talley cease and desist letter is. It's seems strange that Talley is writing it on his own behalf (especially because he says that he already has lawyers notifying other web sites - did he want to save some money doing this one himself?). From what I can find, it's better to have your attorney send the notice on your behalf for two reasons: 1) they are more likely to know the laws of the jurisdiction in which the recipient is operating and craft the letter accordingly, and 2) they are more likely to get results.

    TrixieBelden? What gave it....AWAY? ;-)


    Yeah. Seriously poor attempt to disguise himself as The Head. Good on you for catching it.

    I also think it's really interesting that with all those lawyers cc on his phony cease and desist letter, not one of them could be bothered to write and send it for him. Someone should call those offices and ask if they're representing him.
    GRIFFITH Legal Notice

    Talley Griffith is acting mental with all his different blogs, identities, etc. over at least the last six years. Here's his crazy 2006 "Aris Blane" blog, which he admits several posts down is him, Talley. The guy can't help outing himself. And for years he's used the same method of proof: his name, his email address, his phone number.

    that kid sis person that posted the link to that suspect c&d letter was also gushed about by himmmm in one of his posts i remember. just gushing about her writing and saying everyone should check out her blog etc. so some suspicious connection there that she's the one that unleashes that blog on the world.

    First time posting, i registered to add this info. (by the way, great sleuthing all around). If you go to the Head's blogger profile, you also can link to her/his twitter account. It is recently created, but seems to be some kind of promotional entertainment industry thing. You can get a sense that there isn't a connection between this and Himmmm (either TG or TT or whoever), the followers - only 6, seem to be an unrelated mix.

    Although, as mentioned before, the poster calling him / herself "PS" seems to be Himmmm in disguise.

    I am just morbidly fascinated with all of this. It's not so much his "reveals" (especially since they're all pretty worthless at this point) that I find so interesting, but his years of building a fantasy world online.

    Hadn't seen this posted yet.

    Over the past two weeks, a little-known Hollywood gossip site called Crazy Days and Nights — or CDaN, as it’s known among fans — attracted mainstream media attention when readers began speculating that a commenter known as “Himmm” was actually Robert Downey Jr. The story caught on, spreading to sites such as Gawker, then to cable and entertainment news.

    If this were true, it would be a first: a member of the Hollywood establishment turning on his own, revealing the subjects of old Hollywood gossip involving an aging matinee idol, a deceased movie star and a brutal rape. (Allegedly!)


    Then, last week, the anonymous blogger behind CDaN — he says he’s a dialed-in entertainment lawyer and goes by the handle “Enty” — posted a blind item that purportedly came from a star of “The Hunger Games,” revealing drug use and bed-hopping: “From day one I knew this actor wanted me,” it read. “So, after a few days of flirting on the set a million miles from our partners, we decided f-- - it and we f---ed. Like crazy. Like rabbits.”

    Readers guessed that the tidbit could only have come from Jennifer Lawrence, and like so much of what lives on CDaN, trying to determine the truth is akin to proving a negative: impossible.

    CDaN almost never elicits reactions from stars. As one high-profile publicist says, “‘It’s the whole ‘I don’t beat my wife’ thing. You really can make something worse.”

    In Downey’s case, however, his publicist issued an outright denial, and speculation moved along. But what most everyone in Hollywood wants to know is: Just who’s behind Crazy Days and Nights, and how can he be stopped?

    “People have always asked me, ‘What is it with this guy, the sketchiness around his identity?’ ” says one veteran show-business reporter. “It’s interesting how scared people are.”

    The blog’s author — who is, ironically, obsessive about his privacy, — agreed to speak with The Post on the condition that we not reveal his identity or place of business.

    Online, Enty writes that he’s an obese, thrice-divorced entertainment lawyer who lives in his parents’ basement, drinks heavily and networks with his famous clientele, who feed him his best items. Only some of this, he says, is true.

    “I am not 400 pounds and living in the basement,” he says, laughing. He began the blog as a hobby; a few years ago, he tells The Post, Gawker Media offered to buy his site.

    He says that some of his best stuff comes from celebrities he’s been friendly with — Leonardo DiCaprio, for example, the subject of one of his recently revealed blinds. Enty also says he was friends with actress Amber Tamblyn when she lived in LA, and sent along a poem and a 2007 handwritten FedEx receipt supposedly from Tamblyn as proof.

    The veteran showbiz reporter believes that the RDJ scandal has led Enty to ramp up his blinds and, by extension, unique hits. “That’s the only way to make money,” she says.

    “But the culture has become so damaging that someone who leaves anonymous comments can drive the story,” she says. “What kind of world is it that someone can just claim one star raped another?”

    Enty says he’s not out to defame anyone: “I don’t reveal things that make people look really bad.” He has integrity and expects the same: “In the industry,” he says, “only five people know who I am.”



    So just who is “Enty?” He provided The Post with a scan of his bar card, and he is, in fact, a lawyer registered with the California Bar. According to public records, he is 43 and lives in Los Angeles.

    He does work at an LA-based law firm but according to them, he’s not an entertainment lawyer — they don’t even have an entertainment division. Enty, it turns out, handles wills and probate.

    Nearly everything Enty says, in fact, doesn’t check out. That package Tamblyn sent? That receipt, dated December 2007, came from an LA-based recording studio called Michael Turner Productions; sole employee Michael Turner says Tamblyn has never been through there: “What does she do?” he asks.

    Gawker Media, says founder and CEO Nick Denton, never offered to buy CDaN.

    He’s never been friendly with DiCaprio, and within 24 hours of The Post’s call to DiCaprio’s people, that particular “reveal” vanished from Enty’s site.

    Oh, and the person most likely to be Himmm, according to Enty? Someone who tells the Post he’s shocked to hear it — absolutely not true; he lives in Virginia and has retained a lawyer.

    It all indicates that Hollywood and the media have been punked — duped by a soft-spoken probate lawyer with delusions of grandeur.

    And he’s only getting bolder, accusing aging and dead stars of a rape, murder, pedophilia.

    So, why hasn’t he been sued yet?

    ‘Our jobs are hard enough without the fracturing caused by the Internet,” says one LA-based lawyer, who represents an Academy Award-winner. “With an anonymous gossip site, you have to find out who registered it” — Enty’s domain is hidden — and even then, the address could be hopping from computer to computer. Given that news lasts five minutes these days, sometimes the advice is: Don’t do anything.”

    And if a celebrity did sue, the onus would be on them: They’d have to prove that the information was not only false but posted with malicious intent, and invite high-profile media coverage that would last longer than the most outrageous online rumor.

    And so, until libel laws catch up with the web, Enty will probably continue to “reveal” the “answers” to his scandalous blinds, celebrities and publicists afraid to deny them. Because, as one publicist says, “If I go on the record to say my client doesn’t know him, who knows if he’ll get mad? And what will he say next?”

    ^^ Very interesting. Why in the world would he provide false evidence to his identy, when it could so easily be disproved? Just goes to show, that most blinds are bogus, and Enty/Himmm are full of shite.

    That's interesting, but kind of has the vibe of 'quick, the lid is coming off, do anything to clamp it back down.'

    I just cannot believe in this day and age, anyone can hid their identity all that successfully. I still think there's quite a bit of truth in there.

    And if Enty is so obsessive about his/her identity, why would he/she give an interview to the Post? I like all the subterfuge, it's kind of fun.

    I've always thought he was fake and most of his blinds were a bunch of made up hogwash or recycled entertaiment 'news'. This story goes a long way to confirming my suspicions. Enty can't even tell the truth to a reporter when he KNOWS the info will be checked out. Or maybe he's just ruhtarded. He's def got the mentality of a dim witted 15 yr. old.
