Andy Esquivel just doesn’t know when to shut up! Here is a guy who’s literally about to go on trial in just a few more weeks for felony securities fraud and he’s still posting brainless garbage all over that supports the case against him. Every month or so for the last several years Andy has claimed “this is my last post, email, video, etc. before court.” Back then he usually meant some mythical civil lawsuit he pretended he’d already filed someplace, but now of course he really is facing an eminent court date and he still makes the same claim. A few weeks ago Andy pretended to “sign off” of his Diigo account until court, when in reality he just created a shadow account in the name of Allen Brady. Now he’s posted again on his own Xtagged Diigo account with this apparent apology for not being able to stay offline while his public defender reviews his case:
Sorry I know I signed off but you all had to see this screenshot! Now I will sign off until trial 10/24/2012!
The bottom line is, Andy will never stop posting about his various criminal activities. I expect that in the next week or so Andy will plea guilty to the charges against him, and then will go on a posting spree claiming that he was forced into the plea by his public defender who somehow corrupted by the evil corporate forces that want to steal his now defunct Xtagged portal from him.
It’s endless fun to read Andy’s rants so I’m not complaining. Frankly the more Andy posts, the more he discredits himself. I’m curious to see how much of Andy’s online garbage actually makes it into the trial (provided Andy public defender isn’t able to convince him to plead guilty first). The more the better! It should make for a hilarious transcript.
Almost as hilarious is the endless string of people Andy continues to claim are going to be making special appearances at his fraud trial. It’s funny that his lawyer is still reviewing the case, yet Andy is bragging that everyone and his mother is going to be called to testify – a decision his defense attorney won’t make until (duh) after he’s finished reviewing the case. We’re still waiting to see all the “media” who are supposed to be covering this case make an appearance. So far not a single reporter has shown up to cover it, much less the movie directors who are supposed to be basing a Hollywood thriller on the whole affair.
On Friday, September 21st, I like many other technology enthusiasts waited excitedly in my office with the UPS tracking website open for the delivery of my pre-ordered iPhone 5. It arrived just after 3pm and I wasted no time in setting it up and installing all the apps I’d already become accustomed to on my iPad 3. As I sat at my desk and enjoyed Apple’s latest phenomenon, a silly but amusing idea came to me. “I wonder,” I thought, ” if there really is a ‘Xooplay Bumps in the Night’ sex app as pathalogical lying sociopath and convicted felon Andy Esquivel continues to claim.”
We are all by now quite familiar with Xooplay, as Andy repeatedly reminds us that it’s the next big thing, that it has numerous investors, and that the world is singing the app’s praises. We’ve even been treated to two separate (although very cheesy) demonstrations of the app with crude graphics that look like they were drawn in crayon by a six year old child. [Video #1, Video #2]
So, thinking that just this once some portion of the hype might turn out to be true, I hit the search box in the app store on my new iPhone 5 and typed in “Xooplay.” To my shock and surprise, there was nothing available! I then did a separate search for “Bumps in the night” and discovered a cute little Halloween app, but nothing by Xooplay, or Wiser Technology, or any other company that Andy has claimed to represent. Finally in desperation, I typed in Xtagged and again no dice!
Note: I did not try the same thing on Android because Andy currently claims to be suing Google and has started a “Die Google Die!” campaign to further his anti-Google cause. I figured Andy wouldn’t support Google by creating apps on a platform he despises.
Since I know a little bit about the technology indistry, I decided to take a little initiative and contacted Apple’s iOS developer support team – the folks who are responsible for helping developers create new software for iOS and who ensure that the content meets to Apple’s high standards. The iOS folks were cool, but when I explained what I was looking for and described Andy’s Xooplay app to them in detail, they made it very clear to me that (1) neither Xooplay, Wiser Technology, Andy Esquivel, Steve Klemark, Shar Jenkins nor anyone else I could name who is even remotely associated with Andy’s various online scams has ever applied for an Apple developer’s license, and that (2) Apple would never approve such an app because it would violate Apple’s well publicized ban on sexual content in the app store. In other words Andy is, as usual, completely full of crap.
What makes this psychopath continue to create fake products with goofy names as fronts for imaginary companies that continue to rip off investors? Why does Andy bother? Why doesn’t he just get a real job and stop mooching off of morons like Allen Brady and Shar Jenkins?
We may never know what motivates sociopaths like Andy Esquivel to waste so much energy trying to convince the world that they’re productive instead of actually being productive, but at least we can enjoy watching him answer for his crimes on or before October 24th. My guess is Andy will plead guilty to the felony securities fraud charges pending against him by mid October and this will all be over.
Many moons ago, Andy Esquivel, Steve Klemark, and Alan Brady claimed to have staged an e-cigarette launch event at a casino in Colorado. They made a lot of noise about filming an infomercial at the casino and even created a fictional character called Gary TheBus (Gary the Bus Driver – get it?) who “blogged” his entire experience at the event, which included a laser beam demonstration. The ‘Gary TheBus blog’ was one of the clearest examples of Andy Esquivel’s psychosis ever posted online and also illustrated how stupid Steve Klemark and others were in continuing to follow a person whom they knew to be crazy! Unfortunately, Andy deleted the blog several months ago to avoid it’s use in the courtroom as evidence of his mental incapacity.
I have searched the web for cached versions of this blog, but for the life of me I can’t find it. It’s one of the few examples of Andy’s craziness that I did not bother to save offline. I’m therefore sending out the call from this moment for anybody who has a saved copy of Andy’s ‘Gary TheBus blog’ to come forward and share it with me. The super-secret federal agency that is funding this website solely to foil Andy’s efforts to save the world has authorized me to offer a $50 reward to anybody who can furnish an authentic transcript of that blog for us to re-post online.
Update: we’ve taken over http://garythebus.blogspot.com and have turned it into a mirror of this blog website. If we can’t have the gruesomely incriminating original text, at least we can use the domain to further our cause of exposing Andy’s crimes to all who will listen.
The next pre-trial hearing has been set for October 2nd at 9am as per Andy’s public defender. The postponement was requested to give the PD more time to prepare. As always, updates can be found here [PDF].
As part of his own preparations for trial, Andy has stopped posting under his usual “Xtagged” Diigo account and has switched to a less conspicuous “AllenBrady” account instead. It’s still Andy, as any casual observer who’s used to Andy’s rantings can clearly see, but he has at least decided that posting under his own name as he awaits trial for securities fraud is a bad idea. The suggestion must have comes from Andy’s attorney because I don’t think he is smart enough to have come to such a conclusion in isolation.
