Ripley’s ‘Believe It or Not!’ Gets New BION Submission Direct from Honorable Judge Archie B Hayward Jr’s Lee Courtroom

'Believe It or Not!' but according to Enterprise National Car Rental the two photos reveal the same damage!  The 'angle' of the camera conceals...'Believe It' so says Enterpirse.  So says the rest of the world: 'NOT!'

‘Believe It or Not!’ but according to Enterprise National Car Rental the two photos reveal the same damage! The ‘angle’ of the camera conceals…’Believe It’ so says Enterpirse. So says the rest of the world: ‘NOT!’

Photographs displayed under cross-examination by Credit Czar David Howe evoke ‘not to be believed’ testimony from EHI Management perfect for ‘WOW-WORTHY’ BION!

I must confess that the idea to submit the courtroom photographs as a ‘BION’ was not spontaneous”

— David Howe, Enterprise's National Car Rental 'Ding and Dent' fraud victim

ORLANDO, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, October 6, 2018 / — SubscriberWise, the nation’s largest issuing CRA for the communications industry and the leading protector of children victimized by identity fraud, announced today the BION ( submission from two photographs that were the subject of testimony in Howe vs. Enterprise Holdings dba National Car Rental. The specific ‘Believe It or Not!’ question for Ripley’s audience is simple: ‘Believe It or Not!’ as to whether the two photographs, in fact, reveal the same vehicle condition. In other words, ‘believe it or not’ but Enterprise Holdings’ National Car Rental would have Judge Hayward and the citizens of the world ‘Believe It!” that what you don’t see on the bottom photo in terms of the ‘cracked’ trim-line and the ‘scratch’ just above and to the left of the ‘ding’ on the top photo…well according to EHI management and attorneys — that same damage is merely concealed by the ‘angle’ of the camera.

According to Enterprise, ‘Believe It’, because they’ll have the world believe that the top and the bottom photo show the same condition as evidenced by the agency’s under-oath testimony.

The ‘small claim’ hearing with the truly ‘NOT!’ believable SWORN testimony from EHI attorneys and company was held in the Circuit/County Court of the Twentieth Judicial Circuit in and for Lee County, Florida.

“I must confess that the idea to submit the courtroom photographs as a ‘BION’ was not spontaneous,” confirmed David Howe, SubscriberWise founder, USA Credit Czar, National Child Identity Guardian, and Enterprise Holdings fraud victim and survivor. “Rather it came from the litany of words used to describe the disbelieve from every single person who saw the evidence and read the testimony from EHI management.

“In fact, even a participant-observer from Judge Hayward’s courtroom contacted me to express their ‘surprise and ‘disbelief’ at what was heard and witnessed in that courtroom. Sadly for truth and justice, none of the testimony or exhibits were under the careful review, consideration, and scrutiny of a ‘Jury of Peers’. That's all by design, for the record, to keep juries far from courtrooms where fraud and predatory behavior are concealed through perjury and lies. No doubt that it's also regrettable that there’s no video from the courtroom for the rest of the world inhabitants to see and hear the testimony as it played out in Lee County, FL.

“Thankfully, however, the transcribed words are preserved forever…

“For example, words I heard repeatedly: ‘really’, ‘shocking’, ‘pathetic’, ‘WOW’, ‘seriously,’ ‘remarkable’, ‘unbelievable’, ‘contemptuous’, ‘cover-up’, ‘conceal’, and on and on and on. And those were the kind descriptions. As anyone with a shred of common-sense and honesty would imagine and understand, there are far more abrasive adjectives and descriptions unsuitable for print,” Howe continued. “So, I wondered, is there anyone outside of the car rental industry who might actually ‘Believe It’ since all others concluded ‘NOT’?

“And that’s how the idea for a submission to Ripley’s ‘Believe It or Not!’ came into being,” added Howe.

“Of course, if anyone is wondering whether this ‘cover-up’ courtroom testimony adds a mountain of credibility as it relates to Enterprise Holdings’ National, Alamo, and Enterprise Car Rental denying the renting public due-process of law with a ‘Jury of Peers’ through predatory adhesion contracts, then wonder no more. On that score, the ‘Believe It!’ column wins hands down, each and every time,” Howe concluded.

Read the pathetic, laughable, and highly-concocted testimony from Enterprise Holdings’ Management, unedited from Honorable Judge Archie B. Hayward Jr’s Lee County courtroom, Fort Myers, Florida:

Q (David Howe) Let me take a quick look. Well, you may not 04:26PM

6 recall these photographs that I definitely showed you,

7 but can you at least then explain, did you do that, did

8 you hit that with a hammer?

9 A No.

10 Q You didn't? 04:26PM

11 A No.

12 Q Do you know who did it?

13 A Sir, I'm not sure what you're asking me.

14 Q Well, can you see the vehicle condition here,

15 do you see any damage here whatsoever? 04:26PM

16 A That's not a complete picture, sir.

17 Q I'm talking right now about this picture.

18 A Yes.

19 Q Here's the ding, follow-up here and to the

20 left, do you see that? 04:27PM

21 A Yes.

22 Q Let's look at this one, do you see any damage

23 there?

24 A But the perspectives could be different. I'm

25 not sure. 04:27PM


1 Q Is a picture worth a thousand words?

2 THE COURT: Sir, he's answered the question.

3 His answer is a valid answer. If you have any

4 further questions, please ask them, but do not —

5 you're not testifying for him. He's answered the 04:27PM

6 question.


8 Q I understand, sir. Let's stipulate it's a

9 different angle. This is cracked, can you see it?

10 A Yes, I can see that. 04:27PM

11 Q Okay. Is it possible that this angle —

12 somehow you're not able to say that this has no damage

13 whatsoever?

14 A It is possible that that angle does not

15 provide that, yes. 04:28PM

16 MR. HOWE: Nothing further, Your Honor.

17 Thank you.

18 MR. CITRON: Just a couple.



21 Q Tim, do you believe that this picture Mr.

22 Howe took is a fair and accurate representation of the

23 totality of the car?

24 A No.

25 Q It's taken straight on, that's the angle? 04:28PM


1 A Yes.

2 Q The photographs that I showed you as part of

3 Exhibit 7, they're from different angles?

4 A Yes.

5 Q Composite 7, this is a better perspective of 04:28PM

6 the totality of the car?

7 A Yes.

8 Q That enables individuals to appreciate, like

9 yourself when you're looking at these photos, the

10 complete and total damage of the car, is that correct? 04:28PM

11 A Yes.

— Bruce Wood

Live bidding will begin promptly at 5:30 pm Eastern time. People can register and bid now, at Previews will be held at 500 Gallery starting on October 10th.

The auction will feature a selection of works on paper, including drawings and studies by Impressionist, Pop and Modern master artists, along with casual sketches and souvenir drawings, illustrations and cartoons by major names in pop culture and comics – for a total of 184 lots.

“It has become obvious that some of our consignors have a deep interest in drawings,” said Bruce Wood, the owner of Woodshed Art Auctions. “We have works by Picasso, Bierstadt and Tim Burton coming from one collection, and souvenir drawings from Miro, Peter Max and Dr. Seuss coming from another one. Add to that master drawings by Wifredo Lam and studies by Benton, Gauguin and Claude Monet, and people will see that a very lively show has emerged.”

The works attributed to Gauguin and Benton both carry estimates of $75,000-$100,000. The ink and pencil drawing on paper done in the manner of Gauguin, titled Taaroa (circa 1891), 4 ¼ inches by 6 ½ inches unframed, appears to be part of a set that was partially sold at Sotheby’s on May 8, 2013. Near infra-red (NIR) spectrometry confirms that the paper used is from the 1890s.

The oil on paper board attributed to Benton, titled Portrait of a Boy, is signed bottom right and unframed. There’s an unidentified marking verso. Benton was one of America’s preeminent pre-war regionalist painters. The oil on paper attributed to Bierstadt is titled Butterfly. It’s 8 inches by 9 ½ inches unframed. Bierstadt, perhaps the best 19th century American landscape painter, was also known for making butterfly paintings as souvenirs for the female guests at his soirees.

Works by noted French artists are always in demand. A gouache on paper attributed to Fernand Leger (1881-1955), titled Female Faces, previously in collections in England and Chile, has an estimate of $20,000-$30,000; while a pastel on paper attributed to Edouard Vuillard (1868-1940) titled Tree Scene, signed and in a 13 ¾ inch by 12 ¾ inch frame, should bring $12,000-$16,000.

If Disney’s your thing, the auction features a watercolor and ink on paper drawing of Mickey and Minnie Mouse attributed to Floyd Gottfredson (Am., 1905-1986), who drew the Mickey Mouse comic strip for Walt Disney Productions, 1930-1975 (est. $25,000-$35,000); and a watercolor on paper depiction of Donald Duck attributed to Charles Alfred Taliaferro (Am., 1905-1969), a comic artist who produced Disney comic strips for King Features Syndicate (est. $4,000-$8,000).

Looking to add a splash of color and whimsy to your surroundings? Consider the pen and ink on paper drawing attributed to the Belgian artist known as Herge (1907-1983), creator of the Tintin comic series, titled Rocket, signed and dated 1954 (est. $18,000-$25,000); or the colored pencil and marker on paper depiction of Richard Nixon by the legendary Pop artist Peter Max (German-Am., b. 1937), signed and dated 1998 and 8 inches by 6 inches unframed (est. $2,000-$4,000).

An ink on paper drawing of Fritz the Cat and his girlfriend engaged in foreplay on a couch, attributed to counterculture cartoonist Robert Crumb (Am., b. 1943), 11 inches by 12 ½ inches unframed, should realize $16,000-$20,000. Also, an oil on Fabriano paper drawing attributed to Bob Kane (Am., 1915-1998), the co-creator of Batman, titled Batman and Robin, showing the Dynamic Duo, signed, 16 ½ inches by 17 ½ inches unframed, has an estimate of $5,000-$8,000.

Coincidentally, there’s another drawing of Batman and Robin in the sale. It’s attributed to movie maker and artist Tim Burton (Am., b. 1958). Done using graphite and colored pencils and ink on white drawing paper, the 12 inch by 11 inch work should fetch $8,000-$12,000. Also attributed to Burton is a pencil and pastel on paper titled Red Queen, signed verso (est. $10,000-$12,000).

Another master of the macabre is also represented in the sale. He’s Charles Addams (Am., 1912-1988), longtime cartoonist for the New Yorker magazine and inspiration for TV’s The Addams Family. Drawings attributed to him include his iconic characters Morticia and Lurch, the former ink and watercolor on cardstock, the latter marker and watercolor on paper (est. $3,000-$4,000).

Returning to art of a more serious vein, an ink pen and watercolor on paper attributed to Lyonel Feininger (German-Am., 1871-1956), titled Sail Boat, signed and dated and 9 inches by 10 ½ inches unframed, is expected to reach $15,000-$20,000; while a pencil on paper Portrait of a Woman attributed to Edward Coley Burne-Jones (Br., 1833-1898), should hit $10,000-$15,000.

Who’s more famous, Andy Warhol or Pablo Picasso? Answer: both. An ink drawing on paper attributed to Warhol (Am., 1928-1987), titled Gold Evening Shoe, signed and unframed, carries an estimate of $10,000-$15,000; and a signed and dated crayon on paper attributed to Picasso (Sp., 1881-1973) titled Face of a Woman, in a 17-inch square frame, should hit $10,000-$12,000.

An India ink drawing on buff-colored paper attributed to the renowned Cuban artist Wifredo Lam (1902-1982), titled Surreal Figures Drawing, signed and 11 inches by 15 inches unframed, is expected to rise to $7,000-$10,000. Also, a pastel on paper attributed to French painter Edgar Degas (1834-1917), titled Dancer, signed, framed and artist stamped, should hit $6,000-$8,000.

An ink on paper by the Italian comic book creator Hugo Pratt (1927-1995), titled Corto Maltese, signed, 5 ½ inches by 8 ¾ inches, unframed, has an estimate of $8,000-$12,000; and an ink on paper Sketch of Woman and Horse attributed to Alberto Giacometti (Swiss, 1901-1966), signed and dated 1957, with the Galerie Mathias Fels gallery stamp verso, should garner $5,000-$7,500.

National Toy Stores Make Unplugged Play Day a Big Hit

Unplugged Play Day

National Unplugged Play Day! Unplug It! Turn it off! Take a Break! Be A Kid!

PHOENIX, ARIZONA, UNITED STATES, October 5, 2018 / — National Unplugged Play Day, in its inaugural year, enjoyed the participation of over 115 stores nationwide, from large urban toy stores to office supply stores, to small specialty arts & craft stores. Held on Saturday Sept. 29th, and sponsored by the Wikki Stix Company, National Unplugged Play Day had at its core the idea of urging kids to Unplug It! Turn it off! Take a Break! Be A Kid!

"We have all seen children in grocery stores, airports, restaurants and so many other places, simply glued to electronics, passively staring at screens. Active, hands-on play is important to stimulate imagination and creativity and help develop cognitive thinking skills," said Kem Clark, President of the Wikki Stix Co. "We felt it was time to do something to encourage kids to rediscover the joy of play… doing, not watching."

Clark went on to say that over 1500 moms purchased the "in-home play day kit" to participate with their children at home. "With an average of three children in the home programs and 15 children per retail store, over 6000 children had an opportunity to set aside electronics and enjoy old-fashioned hands-on play," she added.

Play day materials, furnished by the Wikki Stix Co., included activity and idea sheets, plus lots of Wikki Stix. Wikki Stix, wholly Made in the USA, are made of hand-knitting yarn and a microcrystalline food-grade, non-toxic wax. They work without paste or glue, so there is no mess – simply press down with light fingertip pressure. Soft and pliable, they are easy for young fingers to use for creative play, as well as learning letters, numbers, shapes and more! Wikki Stix are safe, gluten-free and non-toxic. Ideal for ages 3 and up.

Wikki is looking forward to a bigger and better National Unplugged Play Day next year. Next year's event will begin on September 28.

Tiffany Studios (N.Y.) Crocus Pine Needle table lamp, crafted around 1915 ($28,800).

The lamps, from a private collection out of Houston, Texas, were the top lots at an Estate Antiques & Fine Art Auction held September 22nd in Cranston, R.I.

After the last selection of Tiffany in a prior auction, I was honored to be able to handle a second collection with such unique qualities. It was truly a joy to put this sale together.”

— Kevin Bruneau

CRANSTON, RI, UNITED STATES, October 4, 2018 / — CRANSTON, R.I. – A trio of rare, early 20th century Tiffany Studios floor and table lamps from a private collection out of Houston, Texas, knocked down for a combined $260,400 (including the buyer’s premium) at an Estate Antiques & Fine Art Auction held September 22nd by Bruneau & Co. Auctioneers, online and in the Bruneau gallery located at 63 Fourth Avenue in Cranston.

It was an eclectic sale, with more than 450 lots in many categories, pulled from prominent estates and collections, plus the contents of the Pawtucket, Rhode Island Preservation Society Joseph Spaulding House. “It was an amazing sale with action on the floor, online and over the phone around the country,” said Bruneau & Co. company president and auctioneer Kevin Bruneau.

Remarkably, all three Tiffany Studios lamps sold to phone bidders. The three were as follows.

• An allover Dogwood floor lamp, circa 1910, 63 ½ inches tall with a 22 inch diameter shade consisting of variegated iridescent white Favrile glass petals with blue-green glass throughout on a molded onion pattern base; shade and base both impressed ($118,800).
• A blown glass table lamp with 20 inch diameter Poppy shade consisting of variegated blue, green, red and yellow Favrile glass with reticulated bronze overlay supported by a globular reticulated blown glass base, circa 1910, shade and base impressed ($112,800).
• A Crocus Pine Needle table lamp, crafted around 1915 and having a Crocus shade consisting of deeply contrasted amber-gold and green Favrile glass supported by a Pine Needle pattern bronze base, 21 ½ inches tall, with shade and base impressed ($28,800).

“After the last selection of Tiffany in a prior auction, I was honored to be able to handle a second collection with such unique qualities,” Bruneau said. It was truly a joy to put this sale together.

Travis Landry, a Bruneau & Co. specialist and auctioneer, echoed that sentiment. “It was a thrill to hammer down such great items and to see such interest in the Chinese famille rose vase and celadon censer. You never know what something will bring when it crosses the auction block.”

The vase and censer he referred to were the star lots of the Asian category. The Chinese Qing Dynasty baluster form pink ground Yangcai famille rose vase, decorated with an allover lotus flower and tendril pattern with powder blue bats and figural elephant form handles, gaveled for $15,000. The underside of the lovely, 12-inch-tall vase bore an underglaze Qianlong seal mark.

The Chinese Qing Dynasty celadon tripod censer bowl, shallow in form and measuring 7 ¾ inches in diameter, changed hands for $12,500. It was decorated with a foliate and tendril pattern supported by tapered feet. The underside of the bowl had an impressed Qing Dynasty seal mark.

Following are additional highlights from the auction. The online bidding was facilitated by,, and Phone and absentee bids were also taken. All prices quoted include a sliding scale buyer’s premium.

The auction opened with a pair of vintage Ford automobiles. Lot 2, a 1922 Ford Model T wood body depot hack truck with green painted fenders and hood, a wood panel body and vinyl roof, and an inline four-cylinder engine, chugged away for $15,000. The smart-looking car had had a fairly recent restoration and showed off a nicely finished body and detailed engine compartment.

Lot 1 – a 1929 Ford Model A standard closed cab pick-up truck, with two-tone green and black paint, vinyl roof and wood-lined bed and side rails – found a new owner for $9,375. The vehicle, out of the collection of a Massachusetts lady, sported an inline four-cylinder engine that had been upgraded with modern oil filter, spark plug and points, for convenience and a fast turn-key start.

An etching by John James Audubon (Haitian-American, 1785-1851), of the Ivory-Billed Woodpeckers, plate 66 from the Birds of America Double Elephant folio (Robert Havell first edition, London, 1829) soared to $46,250. The signed aquatint and hand-colored etching on wove paper of a male and female ivory-billed woodpeckers was 38 ¾ inches by 25 ¾ inches.

A painted metal audio-kinetic ball machine sculpture by George Rhoads (Illinois/N.Y., b. 1926), 48 ½ inches tall, an early example of Rhoads’s work, finished at $5,625. The machine contained an intricately layered downward track with coils, cyclone forms and xylophone-like mid-section striking 26 cascading notes. Along its path the ball would strike 12 metallic painted wind chimes.

An original color poster by Arthur Wesley Dow (Mass./N.Y., 1857-1922), for the French magazine Modern Art, of a post-impressionist landscape, for Le Maitres de l’affiche (1897), realized $4,688. The artwork, signed lower left, was 25 inches by 19 ¼ inches (framed), with an archival mat and frame. Modern Art was edited by J.M. Bowles and published by L. Prang & Co.

Bruneau & Co. Auctioneers has two major auctions planned for the balance of the year. These will include an antiques and fine art auction on Saturday, November 24th; and a sale dedicated to comics, toys and collectibles on Saturday, December 1st.

Mastiff Unveils Launch Trailer for Thai-inspired Horror Game, Home Sweet Home

Special livestream event featuring celebrity guest and giveaways scheduled for Friday, October 5

SAN FRANCISCO, CA, UNITED STATES, October 3, 2018 / — Video game publisher and developer Mastiff today revealed a brand-new launch trailer for Home Sweet Home, a chilling first-person survival horror game based on real-world Thai mythology and lore.

The launch trailer takes players on a gripping tour into the world of Home Sweet Home and provides a glimpse at some of the horrors that await them. Watch the Home Sweet Home launch trailer on the Mastiff YouTube channel:

To celebrate the upcoming release of Home Sweet Home, Mastiff has arranged a special livestream event, which will be hosted by Dan “Indie” Long, and will feature celebrity guest and horror film icon, Adrienne King of Friday the 13th fame. Kicking off at 2:00pm PST on Friday, October 5, fans can visit to see the game in action, chat with King, and win some terrifyingly cool prizes!

About Home Sweet Home
The first in a series of terrifying first-person horror games, Home Sweet Home throws players into a dark and twisted labyrinth, where a miasma of fear fills the air, dread bleeds through cracks in the ceiling and seeps down through broken floorboards, and anxiety grows stronger with every step.

After a long night filled with mourning and sorrow over the recent disappearance of his wife, Tim awakens to find himself in a strange, dilapidated building instead of the comfort of his own home. Naturally confused, he desperately begins to search for a way out while attempting to solve questions that could lead to answers regarding his wife's disappearance. At the same time, he’ll find himself being hunted by malevolent spirits.
There is a dark and sinister secret casting a shadow over this interconnected labyrinth…and without question, it's no longer the happy home that it once was.

● Gripping Thai Horror – A dark narrative inspired by Thai lore, myths, and beliefs that will captivate players while keeping their palms sweating and pulses pounding with fear
● Sharpen Wits, Not Blades – Without weapons to provide defense against the evil spirits, players must keep their wits sharp at all times in order to survive
● Nicely Tied Together – The use of stealth and investigative skills offers gameplay variety and a chance for players to breathe, but not for long….
● Face Your Fears – Experience a new level of first-person fear and terror with PS®VR compatibility

Home Sweet Home will be released digitally on the Xbox One family of devices including the Xbox One X, the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system from Sony, and PlayStation®VR for PS4™ on October 16. A physical edition of Home Sweet Home, which includes the base game and PS®VR mode, will be released exclusively to GameStop stores across North America on October 16.

You are Invited to Join the Party!

Gamers are thrilled with the fun, crazy-sexy antics of the House Party Video Game cast.

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, October 3, 2018 / — Beaverton, OR (October 2, 2018) – Eek! Games today announced that the recent release of the House Party video game V.0.11.3, released on September 28, 2018, has to date received over 90% positive reviews on Steam. The gaming community has embraced House Party as an intelligent and challenging sexy PC sim game. It’s about crazy real-world situations without the hangover the next morning or a trip to the local clinic.

According to Bobby Ricci, the CEO and Founder of Eek! Games, "The latest release contains a couple of new stories revolving around the party's host, Madison as well as a huge overhaul to the graphics and input system. We are also showing off one of our new character models that's been reworked from the ground up by Mimic productions, who worked on the Avatar movies.".

Eek! warns its players that “terrible things are happening” when they unlock the ‘explicit’ version of the game, unleashing plenty of debauchery, sex and comedic fun between player and the zany, therapy-needing cast. House Party delivers smart sexy fun with a unique gameplay mechanic through an advanced AI system where the player’s every choice influences the reaction and outcome of the game.

Many players have taken the game’s story-telling into their own hands with the Custom Story Creator, which allows players to create their own stories for the game which they can share with others who can play through new experiences and new character reactions for tremendous and fun replay-ability.

While the gaming community has rallied around the House Party game the same love is not being shown by Twitch, which banned the House Party game in September 2017 due to the sexually themed nature of the game. However, Eek!’s management feels that if a game is age-gated and people are aware and wanting to see sexy bodies where clothing is optional, it seems irresponsible for companies like Twitch to censor what audiences can and can’t see. It’s taking choices away from adult consumers. The hypocrisy remains that Twitch allows games of gratuitous and extreme violence, despite its own guidelines against such games. Eek! has made all efforts to hide explicit actions of sex in its House Party game and only has nudity and sexual themes, yet remains banned, while Twitch happily broadcasts games like Witcher 3™, Conan Exiles™ or even South Park™, where characters are graphically probed by giant alien anal dildos.

Eek! invites Twitch to read what gamers have to say about the House Party video game and what is driving the excellent reviews”….You'd think that a game like this would be "too out there" or so people say about it because of the crude sense of humor and crazy adult content but, the truth to the fact of the matter is that it's actually pretty spot on, a lot of fun, and makes a heck of a lot of sense reflecting real life choices. It's like having your own MTv Jersey Shore on your computer screen to fool around and it really works out quite well!"
And another…”This is the most messed up game I have ever played in my entire life, and I mean that in the best way possible. I laughed so hard throughout the game. I've only gone through one playthough, but there’s a bunch of different endings to get. If you want to have a hard laugh and a hard on at the same time, this game is totally recommended!”

Last week House Party also announced auditions for one male and one female cast character, which are voted for by the House Party community. Each of the winners will get to appear as regular cast members in the game and work alongside the game’s developers to create their avatar and story-arch in the game.

The House Party game is available on Steam, at

###About Eek Games!

Eek! Games was started in 2015 by Bobby Ricci who programmed and launched the “House Party” video game.
In 2017 House Party was launched on Steam, as an Early Access game. Even though it was still very premature, the initial reception was surprising and the community built quickly. The game sold over 30,000 copies in the first few weeks and over 300,000 purchased downloads in its first year, alone.
Bobby and Eek! Games have many more game ideas brewing with a new title in the works for a tentative 2020 Early Access release.
