I’m Just Not Sure What to Make of This…

This picture just showed up in an e-mail from Jack Thompson.

There was no explanation, other than the subject line:

First feeder bands from Hurricane Ike hit Miami!

Color me confused. Is the man growing a sense of humor? Learning PhotoShop?

Maybe it’s symbolism: the pole represents his law license. The hurricane is the Florida Bar and he’s trying to hang on…

UPDATE: So it appears that Thompson may be preparing for a second career (you never know when you might need one of those)… as a weatherman.

In a followup e-mail Thompson claims that US news organizations are underreporting the upcoming Hurricane Ike because it’s not as sexy as the recent Gustav, which threatened both New Orleans and the Republican National Convention. Even his BFFs at Fox are guilty, says Thompson (now is that any way to get air time?).

    I think the guy has lost his mind.

  19. NonCharon says:


    I work in law enforcement and my old boss was an attorney.  She unfortunately treated her subordinates in the department like she treated opposing attornies.  She would simply crush any dissent by any means necessary.  Finally they sent in some independent evaluators and she was forced out of the department.  Now she is back to practicing regular law and said the experience of being forced out of our department saved her life.  The stress and unpleasantness made her re-evaluate things and calm down.   

    Maybe Jack needs to be disbarred to save his life.  He couldn’t let go of his "quest" and now that its being taken from him by force it might be less of a burden to him. Hopefully he continues to take himself less seriously. 

  20. JustChris says:

    Wasn’t there an incident where a Hurricane disrupted a court date of his since some important people would not bare the horrendous weather to get to the courthouse? I could be wrong there, but that would make the most sense. A clear jab at them is not really out of character.

    Gallagher can araç kiralama say all he wants, but I strongly rent a car believe it’s due to his crappy leadership and E3 being a joke. ESA’s Board of Directors need to find a way to get out rent a car of this horrid contract with this Bush cronie before there’s no one left on the Board.

    Btw, I think Atari and Midway will drop out too, but mostly travesti because  these guys have done nothing ttnet vitamin or little and need to start saving costs.


  33. Anonymous says:

    Call me crazy, but I think Jack should pursue a career in comedy. He has a natural nack for it to me, even if he’s not really trying, cause it has often made me laugh about how serious he is about something. He can say absolutely ANYTHING with a straight face, it seems.

    And this picture just seems to aid this idea XD

  34. TJLK says:

    I think his second career might be worse than his current.  No… not a weatherman but politics.  I mean if he gets disbarred how could he possibly still give video games some grief?  Politics.

    It isn’t that odd of an idea either.  Jack Kevorkian is running for congress as an Independent in Michigan’s 9th district.

    If it happened to anyone else he could care less, but it’s happening to him, so anything short fo worldwide coverage is under reporting.

  37. Chuma says:

    Gustav was also a category 4 storm when it hit land and could have picked up speed instead of dying out.  It made a fair bit of air time this side of the Atlantic too as we were waiting to see if it was going to be as devastating as Katrina and if so how Bush was gonna handle THIS one.

  38. Andrew Eisen says:

    Welcome friends and neighbors to another fun-filled edition of…

    What’s Jack Thompson Talking About?

    According to GP’s story:

    "…Thompson claims that US news organizations are underreporting the upcoming Hurricane Ike…"

    So, what’s Jack Thompson talking about?

    Unfortunately, I have no idea.  I haven’t seen Thompson’s press release so if he has a specific grievance beyond "it’s underreported" I don’t know what it is.

    What I do know is that Hurricane Ike is all over the news and has feature stories at:

    -National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration

    -The Weather Channel

    -Fox News



    Hell, the Miami Herald has had a weather map with oodles of info on its front page all day.  So, it’s not like it’s not being reported.  But is it being under reported?  Let’s do a Google search:

    Hurricane Ike: 841,000 hits

    Hurricane Gustav: 11,000,000 hits

    Okay, so Gustav has certainly garnered more ink.  Is it a conspiracy, news reporters playing favorites, or is it because Gustav has:

    -been around a week longer

    -made landfall five days ago

    -killed 120 people

    Sonjay Dutt: Hey, its not like he’s got anything better to do gimmick wise

    Shark Boy: That would just be plain out funny

    AJ Styles: Do a complete reversal like Val Venis during RTC (as its well known AJ is a hardcore gamer)

    Jeff Jarrett: Its the only way you could get him to do a heel turn considering how much symathy he has (which he deserves) its going to be hard for him to be accepted as a heel (which is what he does better than any else)

    The wind’s not even blowing in the same direction, Jack.

    So he’s upset there’s no reports about the hurricane in Florida? I mean come on, Florida gets decimated by hurricanes at least two times a year, it should just be a given by now.

    Maybe he will become a weatherman, and claim the hurricane trained on murder simulators.

    O_o here’s what i sent

    Let me begin with a few thoughts of my own.

    Over the past few years, you have continued to harass us “video game thugs” because of your unorthodox views and your ideals that video games are at fault for killings and what not.

    Does that really make any sense Mr. Thompson? If I were to play a video game such as Grand Theft Auto often, would that turn me into a killer? No, it doesn’t make any sense. I would ask you to stop your video game attacks because 1. Its not working 2. Its making you look more and more unprofessional 3. Its infringement of freedom of speech and 4. Its not worth it.

    Your harassment of gaming communities and companies is getting old and should end. Do something that’s more worthy like be a criminal prosecutor rather than some lawyer who wants to end video games. Is that how you want to be remembered? The guy tried to censor everything? I wouldn’t.

    I ask you, do you do this to get attention, for religion, or because in your eyes, it’s the right thing to do?

    Stop using video games as excuses. People kill people Mr. Thompson, not video games. Games do not have subliminal messages in them nor do they try to influence people to kill. They are just a new form of entertainment, that has different variations, from realistic simulations to simply solving puzzles. If I were you I would go after drug problems in the USA. Not many people deal with that but maybe you can.

    Also, don’t even think about threatening me with leagal action as I’m only expressing my opinion to you and pointing out the facts.


    Sincerely, a video gamer


    P.S. Get a life.

  60. Hello Jack, this is sanity, anyone home? says:


    Everyone let’s look on the bright side.  Maybe he has finally realized that soon he won’t be a lawyer any more and is just trying to find another job.  Jack, crazy lying old guys don’t make good meteorologists, it requires looking at data and evidence, and let’s be honest that isn’t something you are vary good at.  I thought about it for a while and came up with some suggestions for jobs that might be good for you, although most of them you might be under qualified:

    1.  dishwasher at denny’s

    2.  crazy homeless guy who yells at people on the street

    3. crazy homeless guy who hands out pamphlets

    4. greeter at walmart

    Yes Jack, there are terrible hurricanes in the south east area of the United States.  They happen every year so having in depth coverage of every single one is nuts.  Dealing with hurricanes is something you signed on to when you moved to Florida.  Where I live I have to deal with yearly floods, blizzards, and tornadoes.  You don’t see all of them with in depth news coverage even if they cause terrible damage.  You know why?  They are a yearly occurance.  Pick your natural disaster and learn to live with it because every area of the country has one.

    So your sense of humor is news worthy now, Jack? Hmmmm Jace Hall…you were kinda dull, actually Jace carried more of the humor with his expressions, than you did with anything that sprouted up in your mouth. Flat joke delievery at best….. G4 you are unintentionally hilarious when you make appearances there. NBC you were hilarious when the news anchor took shots at you. 🙂

    Yes this is a real news site about GAMING and how POLITICS are affecting the gaming industry and game consumers. Not about what you ate for breakfast. Jack, your ego is plastered enough times on jaablog…we don’t need two sites now 🙂 Happened to looooove your little tidbit about your law license to be continue in great shape.

    So how goes your crusade? Who is after you today? Weathermen, Bush Administration, Homosexuals, Florida Bar, US Marshalls, FBI, Federal Courts, Supreme Courts, every Judge, Black Rome, Tew Cardenas, the former Clinton Administration, Janet Reno, Shock Radio Jocks, Norm Kent, Take Two, EA, ESA, ESRB, Microsoft, Gamepolitics.com, G4 Attack of the Show, NBC, blogs in general, and people who just don’t like you (believe me, you have a ton of those!) ? Which is it Jack, or did I miss one?

    Don’t worry Jack, you’ll eventually find another lawyer willing to tank their career by co-signing your press-releas..err filings with the SCOFLA. Oh, what was that? You haven’t? Eep. Ummm well Walmart still happens to be looking for an old greeter! I think they give better pay if you happen to be an old has-been and a hack. WAIT! That you are qualified for! Well there is also full time religious nut-jobs waiving a sign in the street. How about crazy old cat man?

    Sadly I would recommend for you a permanent spot on Hollywood Squares, but they only accept C rated celebrities. I think you qualify as a D- ( If that. "Expert" at Fox News can be give to any slack-jawed yokel)

    Cheers Jack, keep shining on you tin-foil hat wearing crazy!

    I’ve always had a sense of humor.  If this site were a real news site, it would have reported the outcroppings of my humor, but that doesn’t go with the official ECA line on Jack Thompson.  Contact Jace Hall for the real read on my comic sensibilities.

    No, that’s not my law license I’m holding onto.  That is and will continue to be, ultimately, in great shape.  It’s actually a basketball pole, featured on ABC World News Tonight awhile back.

    Finally, lose my law license or not (either way I win), we actually have real news going on in the real world that has nothing to do with Strauss Zelnick’s managing to screw up Take-Two.  Here is just some of it:

    EZK: Removed an off topic "press release" and a repeat of the above comments.

    I know what to make of it, I think we NOW need to stop covering a certain someone unless it is actually news-worthy.

    Now, I am not complaing about the amount of stories, and I know GP has very little coverage of such as of late, but I do think this site doesn’t need any stories about what this nutcase does in their spare time.  Maybe just post it in the forum thread most of us ignore…

    Speaking of hurricanes, has he gotten a clue that people and government brances like the courts have other things to do then to return his threatening calls/spams/faxes/etc before/during/after such?

    For a minute there, I thought he might have had us going.  Just kinda screwing with us for the fun of it; but this "politics of weather" stuff smells faintly like something he would actually do.  I have to wonder about the conceit of a guy that drops "press releases" on a personal whim. Imagine if everyone could do that, "restaurant ran out of coke, only pepsi, film at 11!"

    I am half surprised that he is not claiming that the hurricane is god punishing the radical gay florida bar or something.

    I choose to look at this as John Thompson making light of tragic events happening all along our southern coastal cities. Just like with the Penny Arcade charity fiasco. This man has no shame.

    hahahahahahahahahahaha…  wow…  okay, haha,  that is awesome, and something he would prolly say if in the reverse situation, but not joking.

    He didn’t photoshop that though.  He looks like he actually has his feet proped up, and holding onto the bar.  His shirt is hanging down, and just look at his face, haha.  I never seen his face that red before.  Wait….  okay, maybe I have.  I think we can all learn something from this, JT actually has some pretty strong arms.  I thought he was a skinny little whiny wimp.

    I think the picture is him trying to strangle ‘The Bar.’  It should be seen as a death threat.  *sage nod*

    You know, this is probably a trap. He sends us this picture, knowing we’ll all see it, and then he takes what we say out of context to try to make gamers look bad and make it look like we’re mocking him.

    Saying he was being a jerk is like calling milk spicy. He was practicalyl makign death threats

    This is a man addicted to the spotlight, desperately trying to hold onto attention. His douchebag schtick isn’t working as well these days, so now he’s trying to cozy up to the same people he was being a jerk to months earlier?

    Jack is a sad man. He serves as an example of how not to be.

    "thinks about it" That bastard’s making fun of New Orleans… AGAIN.

    Oh he’s trying to strangle the bar… I see… I see… the lunatic is still going to lose his right to practice law

    Now, y’see Jack, that’s what a lot of Super Heros get wrong, you are supposed to swing the lamp-post not vice-versa 😉

    It’s true. We don’t need web developers for the existence of blogs, forums, and anywhere else online that you’re entitled to a public opinion.
