REBUTAL LETTER TO DEPARTMENT OF CONSUMER & BUSINESS AFFAIRS

AFTER PUBLIC STORAGE BLATANTLY LIES  TO COVER YET ANOTHER ILLEGAL AUCTION
PublicStorageLogo1

6-23-15
Mr. Anthony Wai
Los Angeles County Consumer & Business Affairs
500 W. Temple St, Room B-96
Los Angeles, CA  90012-2706
 
Dear Anthony,
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to rebut this non sequitur self serving excuse from Public Storage.  After reading their letter, I realized we were dealing with yet another sub-manager within Public Storage who I personally have never heard of before, nor have I ever had contact with him at Public Storage; yet he is claiming he’s telling you facts about me that are blatantly false, and he apparently knows absolutely nothing about the actual facts of the situation, or more likely, considering how blatantly wrong his so called facts actually are, is just shamelessly lying to you as he attempts to wordsmith Public Storage’s statement in an attempt to cover up their illegal and blatantly predatory policies and illegal business practices.  Once again, this is what I have come to expect from Public Storage and just goes to show their lack of integrity and ethics, and shows the total contempt all the faceless employees at Public Storage seem to show for their customers.
 
First off, I’ve been a Photographer / Artist since I was in Jr. High.  I was forced to put my entire live /work studio in storage after a VC group defaulted on a contract to fund an Art Based reality show I have created, and have a cable commitment to air.   I had given up the lease on my smaller studio and had a lease in my hand for a bigger place to shoot the series.  But at the last minute, when the VC group didn’t come up with the funding, and I had given up my old lease, I had to put my entire studio (A live/work studio) in storage while I looked elsewhere for the funding to do the show.  The VC guys left me in a bad spot and I've been struggling everyday since to get back on my feet.  Just a few months before, I had been back in school for almost two years, learning to do photo realistic 3D to blend with my multimedia artwork.  And I had built a big computer to do 3D that cost a fortune as well.  (This was also in storage at PS)  And I did that all on my own dime, so I was very low on personal funds at that point.  But I had several big projects I was pushing after school was over and the reality show is the one that everyone loved.

I picked public storage because they had a $1 dollar for the first month move in and I just assumed because they were in the arts district it would be a safe place to store in.  I took the biggest space they had.  40 plus years of my life was in there.  Little did I know Public Storage would be the predators I would have to deal with.   And Dale Washington had a few things to say about their fuzzy math on that first month one dollar special as well.  So apparently, I started getting screwed by Public Storage from moment one! 

At the time of the illegal auctioning of all my belongings on March 17th, I had no working phone, and I had no current living address, and the District Manager, Margaret Sommers, the one and only person that had contacted me via email was the only person I was dealing with.  And that contact was all via email.  Margaret Sommers very well knew I didn’t have a working phone because I told her that via email in December 14th- 15th 2014 and can be verified in the email logs I have sent you.  Margaret Sommers was also informed that the address Public Storage was mailing auction notices to, was an old address I had moved out of.  I told them that fact the day I signed up and moved in as well!

Margaret Sommers was told the address was wrong in December 2014, because she actually asked me if it was correct.  And again, I informed her at that time, via email in December 2014, it was not a correct address and was in fact my old address I moved out of.  I requested all auction notices be emailed to me.  And I told Margaret Sommers that I had no current mailing address or phone number.  She knew my situation.  So why did she blatantly ignore those facts in March???   Alzheimer’s ?    A head injury?   Because it was convenient?  Or because they have no ethics?  I say the ladder is true.

Margaret Sommers had contacted me via email to “REMIND” me they were auctioning off my belongings on December 18th  2014.  I was literally 18 days late at that point.  But her email just days before was the first notice I had gotten about any auction. And considering all the back rent had been paid, I assumed she was just mistaken. But she was dead serious. I kid you not, sir.  I owed for that month alone.  18 days at that auction point!!  And they actually did auction off my unit on December 18th, 2014.  This is a great example of exactly what their predatory self serving fuzzy math is allowing them to do!  Eighteen days late and they thought it was okay to auction all my belongings?  I’ll be damned if this isn’t wrong on so many levels! They literally put me through a mental hell with that first auction alone!

Then after the auction, Margaret Sommers told me that the auction was on contingency and they decided they would give me until the end of the month to pay.  How magnanimous of them, huh?  That’s when I started to castigate her and Public Storage for doing what they did!  They put me through a mental hell!  Had I had the means to do so, I would have taken my belongings out right then!  But I was not in a financial position to do so.

So to easily disprove a few points Phillip Cannon is falsely asserting, let’s start with the first time Public Storage actually auctioned off my unit in December, shall we?   As I mentioned, I had paid all my past due, but they still acted like they had the right to ignore that fact because I had paid the past due after the first, rather than the day before, on the 30th.  This is how they are getting away with destroying people’s lives!  They have literally made up their own non sequitur fuzzy math and say their contract makes it legal.  This is a despicable, shameless and totally predatory business practice and needs to be called out by the FTC for being blatantly unethical!

Phillip Cannon asserts that Public Storage was left with no “choice” but to auction off all my belongings on March 17th 2015.  Really?  Well first off, please ask Phillip to explain what Public Storage’s motivation was on the first auction on December, 18th, when all the past due had been paid?  Did they have no “choice” but to auction my unit at that time as well?  Saying they had no choice is just pure bullshit!  They do have a choice.  They do this because they think they can get away with it.  They do this because the FTC and local prosecutors are letting them get away with it.  They do this because they claim according to their contract, they can, and because they want to!  Not because they are compelled to!!!  There was absolutely nothing compelling them to auction my belongings except their own predatory business practices and their blatant corporate greed.

Again, Phillip Cannon stated as fact in his Public Storages letter to you that I owed 3 months rent at the time of the auction.  This is just another blatant lie! A fictional tale Public Storage is spinning for you to try and justify this illegal auction.  I was a month and a half over due at the time of the auction.   And in the same sentence Phillip is telling you I owed 3 months rent, he shows you a figure that represents the two months rent I actually owed.  Phillip Cannon has tried to make it sound like I had not made a payment since 2014, saying I haven’t had a zero balance since December.  Trying to make it sound like I had not paid in more than 3 months and I had abandoned my property and they just had no choice.  But he fails to mention, and the payment records will clearly show, that a payment was made just 35 days before that auction.  These people are just despicable and have literally tried to justify what they have done to me with blatant lies to you and your agency.

Phillip Cannon also asserts that they contacted me via phone multiple times and I made multiple promises to them to pay.  Really?  At what phone number?  Again, referring back to my emails to Margaret Sommers in December 2014, (14th-15th);  I informed her at that time that I did not currently have a phone.  And I did not get a phone until after that March auction.  And that was a free phone service I had to apply for.  So how could Public Storage have called me and gotten promises from me when I had no phone for them to call in that time period?  Maybe they can explain that to you?  This was blatantly made up by Public Storage!  Total fiction, again to help support their story that I was somehow notified about the auction!  Absolutely not true!  A totally fabricated mendacity!  I got an email on Sunday, March the 15th again, “REMINDING” me they were auctioning off my unit on Tuesday the 17th if I couldn’t pay by Monday the 16th.  That email just days before was my first and only notice about the March 17th auction. So Phillip Cannon’s assertion that I had ample notice, is just absolutely untrue and just more pure bullshit from Public Storage!  I found out on the 15th that they were going to auction my belongings on the 17th.  That is not ample notice!

Margaret Sommers very well knew the address Public Storage was mailing auction notices to for that March auction, was not a valid address for me because I had informed her of that in an email MONTHS before in December.  But apparently, she just didn’t care and then just kept sending them to the same old address as if that was okay.  Does the FTC think that’s okay?  And when she contacted me about the march auction, she never once mention the mailed notices when I protested her two day email notice because she knew we had discussed that months earlier.  She knew very well Public Storage was sending notices to a invalid address but ignored that fact.

Margaret Sommers could have emailed me the auction notice as I requested in the December email, but she didn’t.  Her two day email “REMINDER” was fine with her, but apparently emailing me the actual auction notices when it first went out was too difficult?  She is a district manager and she had an obligation to make sure she was doing everything properly.  But she blatantly, willfully and I think spitefully didn’t.  I was struggling and she knew that and I think took advantage of that fact.  And I truly believe it was my reaction to that ridiculous first auction she is spiteful about.  She didn’t like being castigated by me for what she and Public Storage had unjustly put me through with their “Mock Auction” in December, so she got even with the next auction.  I think it was malicious and purposeful and blatantly illegal.  And as Phillip Cannon mentioned, they have a “choice”.  And they choose to not care about their customers or the facts, and just do the wrong thing for their convenience and their own personal gain or ego without any conscience about what they do to innocent people.

40 years of my copyrighted Photography and art work is gone!  Stolen by Public Storage!  These corporate thieves have destroyed my life and my career. Ten’s of thousands of negatives, transparencies and my own custom prints are just gone.  All my tear sheets of ads, magazine covers, everything I’ve ever accomplished as a photographer is gone because of pure corporate greed!  I have nothing physical to show for 40 years of being an artist!  They have wiped it out!  Dozens of my paintings from the 80’s to now are gone.  All my studio, darkroom, lighting equipment, three computers, my scanner, my printer, my entire business is just gone.  All my cameras.  All my portfolios of all my work is gone!!  My power tools, my telescopes, my camping equipment. Not to mention everything personal that I had left from my family and childhood.  I struggled for 40 plus years for everything I had!  And they wiped it out like it was nothing!  Because it’s nothing to them!  I was a month and a half late!  That’s all!!  And they won’t even tell me who bought my unit so I can try to get my copyrighted work back!  Public Storage is despicable and reprehensible and a totally self serving conglomerate of conscienceless corporate thieves!

This 550 million dollar a year company has destroyed my life and they want to claim it was just something they had to do?  That they just had no choice?  What total bullshit!  There was absolutely nothing compelling them to rape my entire life away except their own predatory policies of pure corporate greed.  As Phillip Cannon made clear, they do have a choice.  But they seem to always choose to do the wrong thing and then try to bury the actual facts with lies, double talk and their own non sequitur fuzzy math that the FTC needs to stop.

This just can’t be happening to people and it’s happening all over.  The FTC needs to act now!  My case is far from being an anomaly.  I may be louder then some, but I am far from alone .  This is Public Storage’s reputation all over the internet.  So many people Public Storage has hurt have contacted me since my web site about them went up.  Their predatory business practices need to be stopped immediately.  The FTC needs to take action before this happens to someone else.  And I guarantee you it will be happening to someone else tomorrow unless you help stop it today!

Margaret Sommers,
 Public Storage's
 "Corporate Cunt of the Year"
Raping their customers on a daily basis has become a tradition for Public Storage who seems to be very proud of their sleazy reputation since they refuse to stop their disgustingly immoral and in most cases totally illegal business practices. And District Manager, Margaret Sommers is a fine example of the kind of criminal minded corporate whore it takes for this shameful position in Ronald L. Havner Jr.’s thieving immoral empire of sleazy self serving corporate scumbags.

Margaret Sommers Public Storage
Raping their customers on a daily basis has become a tradition for Public Storage who seems to be very proud of their sleazy reputation since they refuse to stop their disgustingly immoral and in most cases totally illegal business practices. And District Manager, Margaret Sommers is a fine example of the kind of criminal minded corporate whore it takes for this shameful position in Ronald L. Havner Jr.’s thieving immoral empire of sleazy self serving corporate scumbags.

“Cunt” isn’t a word I use very often, if at all, but in this case, I make an exception because Margaret Sommers is the epitome of what I think a cunt really is. Margaret Sommers is a plastic, self serving, uncaring, unethical, malicious, conscienceless thief, who has devastated my life without thinking twice. Public Storage’s sleazy district minion, Margaret Sommers, is a calculating corporate scumbag who works for a company of calculating corporate scumbags who rape their clients of everything they cherish and just don’t give a damn about anything but their own bottom line. 40 years of my life is gone for absolutely no reason accept for Public Storages policies of pure corporate greed and their malicious contempt for their own customers.

Margaret Sommers and Public Storage have illegally destroyed my business and my life and I have promised them they are going to pay dearly for what they have done to me! They have wiped out my entire career as an artist! 40 plus years of my life is just gone! Illegally stolen by the disgusting corporate maggots like District Manager Margaret Sommers, who rapes her customers in the name of Public Storage, like she and Ronald L. Havner Jr. have raped me.

Two Days notice... That’s what Margaret gave me in an email that Public Storage was auctioning off everything I owned in my life because I was a month and a half late! Two days notice! My last payment was just 35 days before that auction. Margaret also knows that she was mailing notices to the old address I had moved out of before storing my belongings at Public Storage. She knows this because several months before that, they “mock auctioned” my unit when I was literally only 18 days late on the rent! 18 days, I kid you not!! She told me then, they were mailing notices to that old address and I informed her right then in an email my attorney now has a copy of, that she was sending notice to the old address I moved out of. Something I also informed them when I first moved in Public Storage!!! Margaret knew I had no current address and she didn’t care. In fact, she took advantage of that fact and that’s pretty disgusting! One more reason she’s the cunt of the year.

Margaret Sommers is a criminal minded corporate thief! She very well knew she was mailing auction notices to my old address and she didn’t care. Do you think a jury will care, Margaret? Because I do have the emails to prove that you knew exactly what you were doing! You waited until the last minute to inform me by email that they were auctioning my life away in two days! You knew the notices you were sending were going nowhere. That’s why you never even mentioned them when I was angry about the two days notice. You were very calculating. But I notice things like that. This was a malicious and premeditated robbery of everything I own, you slithering pile of shit! Nothing less! You are a fucking sleazy self serving corporate thief, Margaret! A calculating thieving corporate whore and I will prove that in court! That was an illegal auction and it ruined my life! You had no right, you sleazy self important bitch! You had no right!

Public Storage and the “Corporate Cunt of the Year”, Margaret Sommers have destroyed my life and she and Public Storage “consider the matter closed.” That’s why she’s a Corporate Cunt! Someone who likes the power of being able to destroy someone else’s life, and then tell them: “the matter is closed”. I got news for you, you scum of the earth corporate maggot … It’s just getting started because you’ve left me with nothing else! And after all, you are “The Cunt of the Year”! So I’m celebrating that fact and going to share it with the world. Aren’t you proud, you sleazy pathetic self serving corporate whore? Did you get a bonus to ruin my life? Or does doing this kind of thing to your customers just get you off? Because you did it to me twice! Well, at least you can look forward to being Public Storage’s “Cunt of the Year”!

YOU WILL PAY FOR THOSE 40 PLUS YEARS YOU HAVE STOLEN FROM ME! Again, that’s a promise from me to you! And I always keep a promise.

And if I sound like I’m full of hate, it’s because you’ve taken all that was good in my life and my contempt for you self centered predatory scumbags is all that you’ve left me with. But that seems to be what you guys do best!

ANOTHER CLASS ACTION LAW SUIT FILED AGAINST PUBLIC STORAGE, MARCH 2015… 

http://www.laartsdistrictblogs.com/ClassActionAgainstPublic…

Board of Public Storage's Sleazy Executive Thieves: 

B. Wayne Hughes; Edward John Reyes; Shawn L. Weidmann; Daniel C. Staton II; Avedick B Poladian; Gary E. Pruitt...

“Of course I blame the head of the company!” the angry Los Angeles based artist goes on… “Ronald L. Havner Jr. is the fucking CEO! He damn well knows what’s going on and so do they all! I’ll put it this way… Ron and his gang of Corporate crooks are either all brain dead morons too stupid to know how this company does business, or more likely, the sleazy self centered conductors of the daily orchestrated scams and blatant perversion of the law Public Storage practices on a daily basis! They are scamming people on so many levels! The people that run their fuzzy math scams like the plastic phony District Manager Margaret Sommers, are sleazy conscienceless predators that politely smile as they steal everything you own and then thank you for being their customer. I’ll bet Ronald and his gang of thieves don’t get many return customers! I only want to see them again in court! Or better yet, behind bars where they all belong!! That’s my experience with these Public Storage scum bags.”

“You know that scum bag makes almost 10 million a year!” referring to the CEO, Ronald Havner. “It’s no wonder!” The angry artist goes on... “He’s a fucking corporate thief! And he’s lining his pockets with people’s lives! Bait and switch! Fraudulent Conversion! Unlawful Auctions! Public Storage is being sued all over the country! And now I’m in line to sue them too! What Ronald L. Havner Jr. and his sleazy plastic minions like Margaret Sommers are doing to people like me is disgusting! And I’ll be damned if I’m going to take what they did lying down! His illegal and blatantly predatory business practices have literally ruined my life and many others. And speaking for myself, I’m going to make him pay for it! Almost 50 years of my original Photography and my original art is just gone like it was nothing! Because it was nothing to Ronald L. Havner Jr. or the conscienceless crony minions like Margaret Sommers who Ronald has running Public Storage as district managers! These people are mindless robots!“ 

“ Public Storage literally just destroyed my life as an artist! As a professional photographer since high school, I literally had hundreds of thousands of copyrighted and irreplaceable negatives, transparencies, original prints, years of tear sheets from the hundreds of jobs I’ve done are all gone! Not to mention all of my original paintings from the 80’s to now, GONE! All my equipment, Gone!! My entire studio was in that space! They sold my entire life away to a total stranger as if it was nothing! All my personal business and medical records as well! Almost 50 years of my life! Those fucking thieves stole my entire life away and they won’t even tell me who they sold it to! I don’t even have a picture of my mother anymore! Everything in my life is gone! Ronald L. Havner Jr. is going to pay for that. What he has put me through I only wish on him!” 

“Ronald L. Havner and his organized band of sleazy Public Storage cronies stole everything I owned as if they had the right! THEY DIDN’T!” he insists! “It was a blatantly illegal auction! And I have the best lawyer in the country for the job! He’s already sued Public Storage multiple times and just filed a class action suit against them last month! After examining all of the fuzzy math Public Storage tries to get away with everyday in my own paper work, my new attorney quickly determined they fucked up big time!! My auction was illegal as were many other things they did almost from moment one! Bait and switch, Fraudulent Conversion, unlawful auction! That’s what they do to innocent people who have come there to safely store their most important belongings! They are disgusting! They have illegally ruined my life as an artist as if they had the right! THEY DIDN’T! And I will see them in court. And I guarantee we’ll be suing for a lot more then the 10K ceiling they think they can force on people they hurt! You violated the law and your own contract! You think you can hold me to a contract you yourself violated?” 

“Hey Ron... How much is 40 plus years of my life worth, if your life is worth almost 10 million a year? Think about it, you sleazy thieving corporate asshole!”

Havner Jr. is the fucking CEO!  He damn well knows what’s going on!  I’ll put it this way… He’s either a brain dead moron too stupid to know how his company does business, or more likely, the sleazy self centered conductor of their daily orchestrated scams and blatant perversion of the law with their fuzzy math!  They are scamming people on so many levels!  The people that run Public Storage like the plastic phoney, Margaret Sommers are sleazy conscienceless predators that politely smile as they steal everything you own and then thank you for being their customer.  I’ll bet Ronald doesn’t get many return customers!  I only want to see them again in court!  Or better yet, behind bars!!  That’s my experience with Public Storage.”

“You know that scum bag makes almost 10 million a year!” referring to Ronald Havner.  “It’s no wonder!”  The angry artist goes on...  “He’s a fucking corporate thief!  And he’s lining his pockets with people’s lives!  Bait and switch! Fraudulent Conversion! Unlawful Auctions! Public Storage is being sued all over the country!  And now I’m in line to sue them too!  What Ronald L. Havner Jr. and his sleazy plastic minions like Margaret Sommers are doing to people like me is disgusting!  And I’ll be damned if I’m going to take what they did lying down!  His illegal and blatantly predatory business practices have literally ruined my life and many others.  And speaking for myself, I’m going to make him pay for it!  Almost 50 years of my original Photography and my original art is just gone like it was nothing!  Because it was nothing to Ronald L. Havner Jr. or the conscienceless crony minions like Margaret Sommers who Ronald has running Public Storage as district managers! These people are mindless robots!“

“ Public Storage literally just destroyed my life as an artist! As a professional photographer since high school, I literally had hundreds of thousands of copyrighted and irreplaceable negatives, transparencies, original prints, years of tear sheets from the hundreds of jobs I’ve done are all gone!  Not to mention all of my original paintings from the 80’s to now, GONE!  All my equipment, Gone!! My entire studio was in that space!  They sold my entire life away to a total stranger as if it was nothing!  Almost 50 years of my life!  Those fucking thieves stole my entire life away and they won’t even tell me who they sold it to!  I don’t even have a picture of my mother anymore!  Everything in my life is gone!  Ronald L. Havner Jr. is going to pay for that.  What he has put me through I only wish on him!”

“Ronald L. Havner and his organized band of sleazy Public Storage cronies stole everything I owned as if they had the right!  THEY DIDN’T!” he insists! “It was a blatantly illegal auction!  And I have the best lawyer in the country for the job! He’s already sued Public Storage multiple times and just filed a class action suit against them last month! After examining all of the fuzzy math Public Storage tries to get away with everyday in my own paper work, my new attorney quickly determined they fucked up big time!!  My auction was illegal as were many other things they did almost from moment one!  Bait and switch, Fraudulent Conversion, unlawful auction!  That’s what they do to innocent people who have come there to safely store their most important belongings!  They are disgusting!  They have illegally ruined my life as an artist as if they had the right!  THEY DIDN’T!  And I will see them in court.  And I guarantee we’ll be suing for a lot more then the 10K ceiling they think they can force on people they hurt!  You violated the law and your own contract!  You think you can hold me to a contract you yourself violated?”

“Hey Ron... How much is 40 plus years of my life worth, if your life is worth almost 10 million  a year?  Think about it, you sleazy thieving corporate asshole!”

Unethical Preditory business practices by
"Public Storage Management"
 Ask the sleazy management at Public Storage why there are so many law suits
against them for illegally and unethically auctioning their customers belongings?

Kathleen Jarnagin, 818-244-8080 ex.1549,
Margaret Sommers, 818-244-8080 ex.1560
After having to put my belongings in a storage unit at "Public Storage" for safe keeping, I found out the storage company itself, "Public Storage" was who I really needed protection from! Unethical preditory corporate theives!
PSS

This storage company, "Public Storage", has done nothing but put me in a constant state of prolonged emotional stress with there blatantly predatory, self serving and unethical and uncaring business practices by their management! This stems from their non sequitur predatory policies hidden in the small print of their wordy contract, a contract that they unethically claim gives them the right to arbitrarily decide to auction off my a person's personal belongs with literally one days notice!  You would think I was over 3 months behind... but no.  Just a month and a half late now. They have done this to me twice now!  Last time when my storage payment was only 18 days over due!  18 days!  And then they actually claimed they sold my belongs for being 18 days over due!!  But then told me the they would still give me until the end of the month to pay if I wanted them back!  Of course I did!

This is just a disgusting and sadistic business practice by Public Storage that only serves to make their customers miserable!!!  And that's exactly what they have done and continue to do to me! This is blatantly a predatory business run by unethical people who unethically and wrongly interpret of the small print in their blatantly self serving service contracts. Public Storage goes out of their way to take advantage of their customers who may be struggling to pay their bills. Public Storage has no ethics what so ever! I have found people all over the internet that have experienced the same treatment from Public Storage that I am now enduring myself. 

No one should have to go through this torturous experience with an unethical company like Public Storage. And I would warn anyone who needs a storage not to do business with Public Storage.

Complaint to Consumer Affairs
http://www.laartsdistrictblogs.com/ComplaintConsumerAffairs2.pdf


L.A. ARTIST SCREWED BY MomentumCapitalVentures.com

https://www.facebook.com/MomentumCapitalVenturesLLC
http://www.momentumcapitalventures.com

NO ETHICS - NO SELF CONFIDENCE - MISLEADING & DISHONEST BUSINESS PRACTICES. That's my experience with Joshua Sodaitis and Momentum Capital Ventures, LLC., says Photographer, David Goldner.

Well, the supposed venture capital company, Momentum Capital Ventures LLC, run by Joshua Sodaitis, ended up having a no integrity, no ethics, & totally waisted my time. Josh had me sign a contract and THEN NEVER SIGNED IT HIMSELF TO "SAVE HIS OWN ASS" as he put it. And he saved his ass at my expense! He wasted months of my time where I could have been looking for other legitimate funders! Instead, they made me believe I was under contract with them when they actually never signed the contract themselves. And Josh did this all with a smiles and kudos as he stabbed me in the back. How fucking republican is that?!

As far as I'm concerned, Josh Sodaitis and Momentum Capital Ventures LLC, have no fucking integrity what so ever. They wasted my time and blatantly lied to me about what they were going to do. They put me in a terrible position and took no responsibility for it. They led me to believe we had signed a contract! That is just unethical and misleading business practices. They actually did nothing but give me lip service and lead me on. I don't know how people like this can actually sleep at night!

Josh Sodaitis obviously has no self confidence in himself or his company, or their ability to do what he says Momentum Capital Venture LLC, promised to do for me in our contract. A contract that they themselves drew up then never signed! Apparently, the contract was just appeasement to keep me on the hook when I could have continued to look for actual funding sources! And that wasted time has hurt me and my project and set me back months by losing the production studio! THEY DID NOTHING BUT LEAD ME ON!! Momentum has no conscience of integrity.

What was even worse, Josh acted like what he and his company did to me, was okay because he was off the hook to get me the money. Why the fuck did you even bother giving me that contract, Josh? Standard republican business practice, right? Create a contract that you have no intention of signing? And then say it was to protected your own ass at my expense? If you did this to me, you will do it to someone else and probably already have! This kind of business practice is NOT okay, Josh! I am so sick of getting fucked by self serving republican scumbags and Momentum Capital Venture LLC. is now in that category as far as I concerned.

If Josh Sodaitias ever gives you a contract, either laugh in his face and tear it up, or make sure he and Momentum Capital Ventures, LLC have signed it first! Otherwise your gonna get fucked like I did! Thanks again for all your support, Josh!

Joseph Pitruzzelli, The Hypocrisy Never Ends
by Angry LA Artist   Friday, Jan. 24, 2014 at 7:40 PM
la.indymedia.org/news/2014/01/262911.php
angrylaartist@gmail.com

This is a rebuttal to what I think is total hypocrisy in the blogs at http://woodsmithe.com/blog, where they let a documented liar, Joseph Pitruzzelli, pat himself on the back for "how the arts district is progressing" after arriving with his noisy retail nightmare that is helping destroy the Arts District for the actual artists.  Does he mention the artist neighbor who he literally tortured out of his loft next door with Wilson Pitruzzelli Investments illegal activities in what was supposed to be a legal AIR that Joseph turned into a noisy 24 hour commercial warehouse?  No!  So I wanted to fill in the blanks.....

I was Joseph Pitruzzelli’s neighbor when he moved into the arts district and opened Wurstkuche and I have to say that he and his sleazy cousin partner were nothing but a living nightmare for me and all the actual artist around them!! And that fact is very well documented at WurstkucheSucks.com and LAArtsDistrictBlogs.com!

Joseph Pitruzzelli and Tyler Wilson are self serving republicans jackasses that had absolutely no respect for their artist neighbors and literally drove me out of my long time studio, starting the very first week they arrived in the arts district. They were illegally using an actual long time Artist loft in a zoned AIR building direct between me and their restaurant as a noisy 24 hour commercial warehouse for their restaurant! Why is that okay? How does that make him a good neighbor in any way, shape or form?

Joseph Pitruzzelli and Tyler Wilson, the owners of Wurstkuche as well as developer Paul Solomon, were both cited by the city of Los Angeles for the illegal use of that legal Artist In Residence at 806 E. 3rd St.. But did they stop after being cited??? NO! Did they care how much they were disrupting their artist neighbors literally on a 24 hour basis?? NO! Not one bit. In fact, The manager informed me personally that Joseph Pitruzzelli and Tyler Wilson had a... and I quote: "Fuck David Attitude". That would be me. And that's exactly what they did on a daily basis for two years. Yet this hypocrite is featured in blogs as a good neighbor? You mean, now that it's all retail around them that have replaced the actual artist lofts. That's what Joseph is happy about.  Driving all the actual artist away. He is truly the anti-artist of the LA Arts District.

Even after Joseph Pitruzzelli lost a law suit by their artist neighbor, did he stop his illegal use of that loft? No! They appealed so they could continue to disrupt me and the entire neighborhood with there illegal use of that loft because it was convenient for them to use! How sleazy, self serving and republican is that?  Or is that what LARABA considers a good neighbor in the Arts District?

I was forced to live next Joseph Pitruzzelli's nightmare for two years and I'm appalled that anyone would think he is even close to any kind of good neighbor. The person you are praising disrupted my life and the arts district and I've been there since 1983.

Wurstkuche Sucks and so does Joseph Pitruzzelli and Tyler Wilson. They are the anti-artist of the LA Arts District and have done nothing to date to prove otherwise. They are NOT good neighbors for the Arts District! They have done nothing but bring noise, smoke and congestion to what was a creative neighborhood and they have driven the actual artists away!

They are not artist friendly and not the kind of neighbor I would curse on anyone except republicans like themselves! My experience with Joseph Pitruzzelli and Tyler Wilson was worse then bad nightmare because they never let me sleep! And that lasted 2 years until I finally left what was my creative live work space!! A space that is now a retail clothing store priced for yuppies! That’s the asshole you are featuring in your "neighborhood" blogs. At least my blogs are real!

-David Goldner, Angry LA Artist

PS.... For all the hypocrites at LARABA, ask yourself why it was okay for your now X- republican president to have arrive in the LA arts district, rent a ZONED AIR loft in an Artist's building full of actual artists, and then use it as a 24 hour commercial warehouse for there restaurant while he knowingly disrupted the lives of his artist neighbors with no conscience about it what so ever! Why was that okay?  Been waiting for an answer for several years now.

Joseph Pitruzzelli and Tyler Wilson are self centered pork encased pigs and nothing has changed.

http://signon.org/sign/fire-joseph-piruzzelli?source=c.tw&r_by=912068

The morons at LARABA don't do shit for the actual artist in the arts district even when I was there!  And your choice of president shows LARABA's hypocrisy in spades!  Why is Joseph Pitruzzelli, a person who is a sleazy self serving pathetic lying hypocrite still LARABA's president?  LARABA's blind eye to it's own president's hypocricy is disgusting and beyond believe!  Your president has no integrity so that means LARABA doesn't either.  Tell Pitruzzelli he's an asshole and to go fuck himself from the artist neighbor that he's personally screwed.  Yes, that would be me!
-David G.

The Los Angeles River Artist Business Association didn't like the facts I was throwing at them.  They couldn't deny any of the facts so they only focused on the fact that I called their president a fucking conscienceless yuppie asshole.  That's the best you got?  Really?  LARABA wants to just kill the messenger and ignore the message about who their sleazy president Joseph Pitruzzelli truely is.  How republican is that!...   RESPONSE LETTER TO THE LOS ANGELES RIVER ARTIST BUSINESS ASSOCIATION:

---
So what he (Joseph Pitruzzelli) did to me,  what he put me and the surrounding artist through wasn't offensive?  Are you fucking kidding me??? You deny the truth just like a republican!  And what you call personal, I call standing for all the actual artists in the arts district.  A concept that is apparently foreign to any of LARABA's board members who only work for the commercial yuppies like your president!  What LARABA doesn't like is the truth being held up to their hypocritical faces!  And the truth is vulgarity is the only thing that comes to mind when I think about your fucking president, Joseph Pitruzzelli.  He's a slimy lying republican pile of shit who disrupted my life as a long time artist in the LA arts district!  And I defy LARABA to disprove anything I have said about what he put me through as his neighbor, you conscienceless assholes!  I've got two legal declarations packed with Joseph Pitruzzelli's blatant lies and I challenge the chicken shit morons at LARABA to have a public hearing about those legal declarations and prove one thing he's said in them true, and then disprove anything I've said!  You won't because you can't!  The truth hurts and that's what you assholes are running from.  The truth of who your president is!

You all have your heads up your asses denying what your piece of shit president put me and all the other surrounding artist through after he arrived and illegally used the AIR loft as a 24 hour commercial warehouse!  Maybe you want to defend that too?  Joseph Pitruzzelli is a sleazy republican that hasn't even apologized for his blatantly illegal activities and the disruption it's created in the arts district and in my life personally!  I left my studio directly because of Joseph Pitruzzelli & Tyler Wilson's continued illegal use of the AIR loft next to my studio.  So again, do you want to defend that?  Can you?  NO!!!!!!  Fuck all of you narrow minded LARABA idiots!  You have your heads up your asses and are all hypocrites just like your sleazy president.  You deny the truth to make yourselves feel better and you try to villainize me to do the same.  But the truth is on my side and I will not be silenced.

I was in the arts district for 30 years before that little yuppie bitch you call your president arrived.  But none of you give a fuck about the truth.  And you hypocrites don't want to acknowledge who you really have leading your organization.  Well I do know who he is and I will continue to be as vocal as I can about who he is and what he has done.  And all you have done is just confirmed that LARABA is just as anti-artist as it's president.  I will continue to post my blog and speak my opinion until Pituzzelli is gone from the arts district. You have chosen an asshole as a president and I will continue to let people know the truth about who he is and what he has done to the arts district.
-David G.

LARABA is still running from the truth!  Their president is a sleazy self serving anti-artist asshole!  But the good news is I just found out this from their narrow minded web master:

"For the record as of 2014 Joseph is no longer president."

HAL-A-FUCKING-LU-YA!  It's about god damn time!

A question to Tyler Wilson & Joseph Pitruzzelli, owners of Wurstkuche...
What is attempting to ruin my life worth in compensation?

I was forced to think about this question today when I was asked by Tyler Wilson what I wanted as compensation to take my blogs sites down about what he and his cousin Joseph Pitruzzelli put me through as their artist neighbor after Wurstkuche invading the arts district.  Yes, that's right, Tyler Wilson actually called me.  He said he wanted to offer me an "opportunity" almost like we were old friends.  He never offered an apology for what he, his cousin, his restaurant Wurstkuche, and his corporation, Wilson, Pitruzzelli investments put me through as their neighbor, in fact, he tried to just belittle it as "the past" as if nothing had really happened, but now wanted to offer me an "opportunity" as he called it several times.  And what was that opportunity?  $10,000 to take all my blog sites down that have all the evidence of the law suits and the hell they put me through as their neighbor.  And he said that "only he and I cared about the blogs on the site".  Well, that may be true, but that doesn't seem to stop the traffic I get there on a daily basis.  Have you googled wurstkuche?  WurstkucheSucks.com usally comes up on the same page as well.  In fact, and I'm almost embarrassed to say, WurstkucheSucks.com now gets more hits daily then TheGoldnerGirls.com.  And the fact that I know the site is up with the truth is really enough for me.

Tyler, you and your cousin are republican sleaze balls that literally harassed and tortured me out of my studio over a two year period in the heart of the LA Arts District and then you tried to sue me for $100,000.00 to bury my personal blogs about you, and in doing so continued your blatant harassment for more then a year after I left the arts district.  Now you offer me this token of $10,000 and you think it will make everything you put me through okay?  Are you fucking kidding me?  After what you tried to do to me?  You offered absolutely no apologies and had no humility what so ever about what you have done to me, and in fact, made it very clear that the only reason you want the blogs down is for your own ego.  If you're now embarrassed, you should be!  But that's not enough and it's way too fucking late!  You still don't get it and you don't give a flying fuck what you and your hypocrite of a cousin, LARABA's president, have put me through or what you've actually cost me in time, productivity and money itself!  Seriously, go fuck yourselves.  10,000 wouldn't even cover the legal expenses I had to put out just to try and fight Wurstkuche's and Paul Solomon's continued illegal use of the artist loft that was next to me!  Nor does it consider anything you assholes put me through for two full years straight!

As far as I'm concerned, what you and your cousin did to me was purposeful, malicious and totally dishonest!  You tried to villainize me to take the focus off the point, your illegal use of that artist loft.  You've personally given me two legal declarations packed with your own blatant lies, Tyler.  I can see how that could embarrass your family, but that can also ruin someone's life you fucking asshole!  You and your cousin literally tried to ruin my life with false police reports, a bogus restraining order packed with blatant lies, a 100,000.00 law suit packed with lies that verge on being blatant fantastic fantasy's rather then anything in reality, and all of them thrown out of court as you pathetic yuppies continue to illegally use that AIR next Wurstkuche as a illegal commercial warehouse.  You disrupted my life from the first week you arrived and then pretended to somehow be the victim of your artist neighbor as you made 3 million your first year and squashed any productivity out of me and what was my creative live work space.  Or the 24 hour commercial nightmare you illegally used it as!  Now you just want to make any record of how you acted and what you did to me go away like it didn't really happen.  You do exactly what all sleazy republicans do in this country, but I didn't let you get away with it.  You tried to turn everything around on me with your blatant lies, but I stood my ground and the truth came out.  And that's exactly what both of you, Tyler Wilson and Joseph Pitruzzelli still want to hide.  The truth.  That's why you and Wurstkuche Suck!  Do you get it yet?  That is why this site will not fade away.

If you actually want to repent, Tyler, then you have to take full responsibility for what you did.  You actually have to show humility!  And neither of you, Tyler Wilson, Joseph Pitruzzelli will do that because neither of you have an ounce of integrity or humility between you.

Now back to the moot question at hand....  If I was even going to consider selling my two Wurstkuche blogs domains, I would stand by the per domain price you yourself set with your phony harassment law suit as a base minimum to start at.  But that alone would still not address the last two years you tortured me as your neighbor.  That is not something I should have had to pay for!  I would want my last two years of rent back and I would want all my legal expenses I was forced to put out back as well.  That's at least a starting point.  But as I said....  The question is moot because it will never happen.

An Editorial Response To "ladowntownnews.com's" article about Paul Solomon's new "Walnut" project in the LA Arts District.

"DEVELOPER PAUL SOLOMON" An Artist's Worst Nightmare

Having been an artist in the LA arts district for 30 years, I had the unfortunate experience of having developer Paul Solomon as a landlord.  And I use the term "landlord" loosely.   Slumlord would be much more appropriate.  Paul Solomon was a nightmare as a landlord for any artist and I would warn all potential tenants thinking about moving into one of his buildings to stay away from any artist loft under his management!  Paul Solomon does not care about his artist tenants.  He's just a self serving plutocrat trying to make more money for himself and that's a verifiable fact.

These are all verifiable facts and can be found in legal documents posted on LAArtsDistrictBlogs.com, Wurstkucheblogs.com and WurstkucheSucks.com. Paul Solomon illegally allowed the Artist in Residence at 806 E. 3rd St., the loft directly next to my studio, to be used as a noisy 24 hour commercial warehouse by Wurstkuche Restaurant next door, and literally disrupted my life and all the actual artist that were trying to live and work around this 24 hour illegal nightmare.  Paul Solomon and the owners of Wurstkuche were cited by the city of Los Angeles for that illegal use but to date have never complied with the city's "Order to Comply".

Again, Paul Solomon  was cited by the city of Los Angeles for the illegal use, but refused to stop it because he didn't want to give up the commercial rates that rental was creating for him.  Solomon screwed all the artist's actually trying to live and work there!  Is that the kind of landlord an artist or anyone for that matter wants?  That's just sleazy!  I literally had to move out of my studio because Paul Solomon and the owners of Wurstkuche made my life and my loft an unlivable 24 hour nightmare, and did so in what was supposed to be the heart of the LA Arts District.

That is Paul Solomon's legacy to the Arts District.  He can build all AIR's he wants, that will not change who he is as a person.  And in my opinion, he's a sleazy self serving slumlord and I warn any artist to stay away from any so called artist building he is a part of.

POSTED ON JAN PERRY'S FACE BOOK PAGE.
TWICE NOW... BECAUSE SHE JUST DELETED THE QUESTION
Rather then just delete this posting Jan, why not answer the question??? This is being posted on LAArtsDistrictBlogs.com as well. ...

"Why haven't you lifted a finger to help all the actual artists in your arts district, Jan? You've allowed condo developers and retail businesses to illegally use legal Artist in Residence units and push all the actual artists out around them in what is supposed to be a creative environment for artists, and in the heart of the LA arts district. Developer Paul Solomon and the owners of Wurstkuche restaurant are still to this day, illegally using legal AIR lofts for illegal commercial uses, and all the while displacing all the long time actual artists around them. Why is that okay? How is that leadership?"
-BlogMaster

_________________________________________
11/28/12
OPEN LETTER TO:
Jan Perry,
I wanted to thank you and your office so much for the living hell you've turned the Arts District into for the actual artists trying to live and work there.  You can read more about how I personally feel at LAArtsDistrictBlogs.com, WurstkucheSucks.com and WurstkucheBlogs.com.  And I've also attached the ruling to this email for the wonderful law suit filed against me by the yuppie Wurstkuche sleazeballs, Joseph Pitruzzelli and Tyler Wilson.  They didn't like my blogs that documented the hell they put me through as their neighbor after they moved into the arts district and disrupted my life.  It took over a year of complaining before the city of Los Angeles actually cited them for the illegal use of an AIR as a commercial warehouse for their restaurant next door, (also attached) but then the city did absolutely nothing to follow up to stop Wurstkuche's on going 24 hour disruptive illegal nightmare use of the AIR loft directly next to my long time studio!  I had to  move, Jan!  I was pushed out!  Again!  Because before this loft, I was one of the Artist's at 2121 E. 7th Place that got thrown out to turn that complex into condos for more yuppies.  Then it just sat empty for years!  So now I've been screwed two times in a row by self serving landlords and businesses that really don't give a damn about the actual artist's lives they disrupt with their hostile take overs.  And from my experiences, your office did nothing and has not been on the artist side at all.

Wurstkuche's illegal use continues to this day.  Do you care?  Because now there are no more artists next to them to complain and Joseph Pitruzzelli has become the president of LARABA, an artist association, something that is total hypocrisy beyond belief and a slap in all the actual artist's faces.  He was a self serving jackass as an arts district neighbor!  And I've been here since 1982! Wurstkuche is artist worst nightmare come true and continues to be to this day!  Your office did absolutely nothing to help when I needed it at 2121 7th Pl, nor did you lift a finger when I contacted your office about Wurskuche's illegal use at 808 E. 3rd St.  You've allowed the arts district to become a commercial horror story for any artist still there.  The city of Los Angeles failed to stop Wurstkuche owners illegal use of the AIR as a commercial warehouse directly next to my artist loft and put me through hell!  Wurstkuche's wiener boys lost their law suit miserably because what I wrote about them was the truth about what they did and how I feel about it.  And I'm not very happy.  In fact, I'm pretty pissed off!

All of these domains I've created were started after the douche bag republican owners of Wurstkuche filed their 100,000.00 harassment laws suit for the blogs that were only on my personal web site, DavidGoldner.com.  Now they have there own domains.  Thanks for that Jan and all the wonderful arts district memories that you and your office helped give me.  Or at least did absolutely nothing to stop.

 "Artists?  You don't need no stinkin' artist in your arts district.  RETAIL! CONDOS! DEVELOPERS! PLUTOCRATS!"  That's your new arts district.  I was there for 30 years.  I will not be back.
-David Goldner

ps... When are you up for re-election?

Pss... Just heard Jan Perry is running for mayor Los Angeles.  What a joke!  Jan, you've done nothing for the actual artist's in the LA Arts District except create nightmares that have helped drive us all out!  You catered to all the retail, to all the commercial developers to everyone that has chased all the actual artist out of your district!  It's supposed to be the arts district, remember!?  You've turned it into a commercial nightmare for the actual artist without the blink of an eye!!!  I was there for 30 years and I'll never come back!  I have no doubt you'll do nothing for the people of Los Angeles as you did nothing for the artist in your LA Arts District!  Not a chance I'll vote for Jan Perry!

Joseph Pitruzzelli is a Blatant Liar & a Hypocrite
& Must Go as LARABA's President

The Los Angeles River Artist Business Association is purposely turning a blind eye to their own president's blatant hypocrisy since his arrival in the Los Angeles Arts District.  Joseph Pitruzzelli is a blatant hypocrite and must go as LARABA's president.

As the owner of Wurstkuche restaurant, Joseph Pitruzzelli and his partner Tyler Wilson literally harassed, disrupted and totally disrespected the lives of the artists around them that were trying to actually live and work in their legal artist in residence building as Joseph Pitruzzelli illegally used an Artist in Residence loft as a noisy 24 hour commercial warehouse for Wurstkuche restaurant next door.

Joseph Pitruzzelli had no regard or respect for his artist neighbors and was cited by the city of Los Angeles along with the buildings owner, Los Angeles developer Paul Solomon, for that illegal use of an Artist in Residence as a commercial warehouse that continues to this day.  Joseph Pitruzzelli and Tyler Wilson were sued by their artist neighbor over their disruptive and illegal use of that long time Artist loft.  But Joseph Pitruzzelli and Tyler Wilson refused to stop their illegal use of what is still to date, a legal Artist in Residence loft.  They do not have any permits to date to use it as a commercial warehouse.  But they have chased all the surrounding artist away.  No one left to complain.  That doesn't change the reality of what they have done and are still doing.  Disrupting the lives of the actual artist's in the Arts District.  That's what LARABA as well as Joseph Pitruzzelli should be concerned about.  But are they?  The fact that LARABA's own president is chasing the actual artist out of the Los Angeles Arts District should concern them.  But does it?  LARABA board members continue their own hypocrisy,  by turning a blind eye to their own president's Joseph Pitruzzelli's lack of integraty with regards to respecting his arts district neighbors, an act of hypocrisy in itself for what is supposed to be an "artist association".  Shame on you all!

The loft at 808 E. 3rd Street is still to date being illegally used by LARABA's president, Joseph Pitruzzelli.  It is still a legal Artist in Residence.  Joseph Pitruzzelli has no permits what so ever to allow his business, Wurstkuche Restaurant, to be using it as a commercial warehouse.  And to date Joseph Pitruzzelli has still not stopped his disruptive commercial use of that long time Artist's loft.  Why?  Because they have chased all the surrounding artists away.  That's why. Are you listening LARABA?

Joseph Pitruzzelli is a hypocrite who has disrupted the lives of the artists that were around him since his arrival in the L.A. Arts District in 2009.  He should not be LARABA's president. The Los Angeles River Artist Business Associations appointed him as a token president because his business was making tons of money.  Did that entitle him to disrupt everyone around him?  What about his integrity?  What about the artist that were around him and have left because of Wurstkuche's disruptive arrival and the footprint they have had in the arts district?  What about how he treated his artist neighbors?  It all matters.

Joseph Pitruzzelli is a hypocrite and must go as LARABA's president.

A note to LA City Council Member Jan Perry...

Take a look below at what I've had to put up with... Your arts district policies show your lack of consideration for the actual long time artists in the LA Arts District.  I've had 4 lofts over 30 years since 1982. The actual artist's who were trying to live in your now over commercialized & condo-ized art's district is quickly shrinking to be replaced by yuppie assholes like Joseph Pitruzzelli & Tyler Wilson, the owners of Wurstkuche Restaurant.

Your office was fully aware that they illegally used the AIR loft next to my studio, a legal artist in residence,  and made my life a living hell with no conscience or respect what so ever for the creative live / work aspect of that AIR building and your office did absolutely nothing to stop it.  And to date, the use is apparently still illegal and the city of Los Angeles who cited both Wurstkuche Restaurant Owners and Paul Solomon the owner of my AIR building for that illegal use, has still done nothing to date to stop it.  Could that be because there are no more artist to complain now?  It's all commercial retail now, no more artist studios and that's making the city more money then the actual artists so you look the other way when artist's like me get screwed?  And it is still an illegal use according to Joseph Pitruzzelli's own testimony in court.  They still don't have a proper permit because they've harassed their artist neighbors away that were complaining!  That is still a legal Artist in Residence loft that Joseph Pitruzzelli is still using as an illegal commercial warehouse in the heart of the LA Arts District.

Joseph Pitruzzelli and Tyler Wilson made my creative Live / Work space a un-creative and unlivable nightmare and on a 24 hour basis.  Then after a year of complaints they consciously began to villainize me for standing up for my rights, the artist next door in my legal AIR loft in the arts district of all places.  My complaining and confronting them was the problem, not their illegal use of a residential unit in a legal AIR building as a noisy 24 hour commercial warehouse on the other side of my plaster board wall.  That wasn't the problem?

My legitimate complaints and personal protest of being tortured on a 24 hour basis by the consciousless corporate minded republican owners of Wurstkuche Restaurant, Joseph Pitruzzelli & Tyler Wilson was not the problem.  Their illegal use of an AIR in the LA Arts District was the problem.

But the problem is now solved, Jan.  The artist is gone and a commercial business is now in it's place.  That's your arts district.

ARE YOU UP FOR RE-ELECTION YET, JAN?

WURSTKUCHE OWNERS
Joseph Pitruzzelli & Tyler Wilson:
PATHETIC, SLEAZY, SELF SERVING,
ANTI-ARTIST REPUBLICAN LOSERS!

Violating artist rights since 2009 and I still doubt they get it!  Maybe this court ruling below will help...

I just got the actual court ruling in the mail from the wiener boys frivolous law suit after I wrote what's below.  The judge got it perfectly and got to the truth.  She seemed to understand the situation exactly and even explained the situation they put me in and she was really right on the button!  I'm actually amazed by this intuitive ruling.  And according to the judge, Joseph Pitruzzelli and Tyler Wilson actually confirmed in court the truths in my blogs between my well deserved castigation's or constitutionally protected opinions as the case may be.  Anyway, here's the ruling for anyone that cares...

POSTED  10/16/12

An Open Letter To:
JOSEPH (the sleazy hypocrite) PITRUZZELLI & TYLER (the scum bag liar) WILSON,
LOSERS OF THEIR PHONY DEFAMATION LAW SUIT
THE FIRST AMENDMENT WINS AGAIN!

Well I just saw on line the "PENDING" was gone and the court had reached a verdict.....  I guess it will be mailed to me too, I mean being that I'm the defendant and all, but on line it says:

"10/15/2012 Judgment (COURT JUDGMENT IN FAVOR OF DEFENDANT DAVID GOLDNER AND AGAINST PLAINTIFF)"

I guess that means YOU LOSE!

You sleazy little republican assholes papered me out of the court hearings with your Default filing, filed papers for a year with the court without any protest, and I still won the case without even being there!!  Keep that in mind wiener boys.  Because I will follow through on the promise I made your attorney if you ever try to harass me in any way shape or form again.  You fucking pathetic little wiener boys lost your bullshit harassment law suit because you deserved to lose!  My opinions of you are not defamation!  The fact that my opinions of you two scum bags are incredibly low, is a direct reflection of how you treated me as your neighbor and the hell you put me through in the arts district!  What don't you get?  And my blogs just document how I feel about you and what I think of you!  And guess what....  I'm entitled to despise you for being sleazy assholes to me as the artist next door after you invaded the arts district and illegally used the loft next to my studio and disrupted my life!

I really have no doubt the judge saw right through your phony victim crap.  And as far as I'm concerned, you're both pathetic low life sleaze balls for trying to play the victim after what you put me through!  And let me tell you, you assholes playing the victim is what really infuriated me about this law suit!  After what you put me through on a daily basis for two years?  You're going to try and pretend you're the victim?  Seriously, fuck you both from the bottom of my heart!  Joseph Pitruzzelli, Tyler Wilson, you are both sleazy self serving ignorant brain dead douche bags for playing the victim!  Totally pathetic!  And after just downloading both your declarations filed with the court, phony crap is a total understatement!  What blatant sleazy twisted half stories and blatant lies you assholes filed as evidence in this court case!  And that's exactly what I predicted you'd do!  No wonder you didn't want me there to set the record straight.  You damn well know I would have torn your self serving stories apart in front of the judge!  What phony's you are!  Your lie filled one sided declaration tries to imply that your illegal use of an artist loft, daily violating LAMC and LADBS codes and violating my rights wasn't the problem.  (And that's your fucking problem in a nut shell, by the way) It was the artist next door trying to live and be creative in his legal arts district loft who is the problem?  You poor little multi million dollar wiener boys are both just the victim of me, the artist and in all places, the arts district, with my totally uncalled for creative work space and residential sleeping hours!  How dare me, right?  What fucking sleazy assholes you two are!  What was your motto when I was trying to live there?  "SLEEP?  HE DON'T NEED NO STINKIN' SLEEP!" or maybe "CONSIDERATION?  WE DON'T NEED NO STINKIN' CONSIDERATION!" or maybe "NO RESPECT FOR YOUR ARTIST NEIGHBOR."  If the shoe fits, ware it!

You know what I'm guilty of?  I'm guilty of being the artist who was unfortunate enough to be next door to you two assholes when you invaded the arts district with your Wurstkuche nightmare!  But I'm not the victim, you are, right?  I just dropped out of the sky to harass you for no reason, right?  WOW!  That's almost psychotic.  How fucking pathetic you little sleaze balls both are!  Was it me who just dropped out of the sky?  Really?  Not the opposite?  Really? You guy's are just like the republicans in the GOP!  Just turn it around and lie, lie, lie!  And I think the judge must have seen that too.  After all you gave her my blogs as evidence!  And after seeing your evidence, I have no doubt she could see the consistency and sincerity in my blogs that your evidence lacks.  You think I write my blogs for the public?  You are ignorant fools and have no clue to an artist's motivations.  My blogs are for me.  My feelings.  My emotions.  My opinions.  I don't give a fuck who reads them, or if anyone reads them.

And by the way, you actually contradicted your own evidence in multiple places from what I can see at just a glance.  I'm sure the judge could see that too!  This case was a fraud from the start.  You thought you could scare me in to taking my blogs down.  How'd that work out for you two shit for brains wiener cousins?  Let me make this really clear... I did ,and still do, stand by every word I've written about you phony idiots.  And I had two years to get to know you two yuppie pricks, Joseph.  Two years of pure torture!

 And since you brought it up in your law suit which I will be posting parts of soon, let's talk about my observations of you with regards to my comment about what I perceive as your un-normal reaction to my non sexual pin up art.  I distinctly recall you calling my art work porn and smut despite it's lack of any sexual content what so ever.  Isn't that correct, Joey?  So you consider nudity in itself pornography?  Is that a religious thing?  Because I also remember inviting you to come into my studio to look at my large original canvases.  Do you remember that?  Do you remember your reaction to my art work?  I do. You were probably in my studio for less then 30 seconds.  You walked in and looked like a nun that had just walked into a men's dressing room!  You almost immediately got flustered and said you forgot something and turned and walked out.  But I could see it was your reaction to the gallery of beautiful naked girls in my studio.  Now I've studied the psychology of human sexuality in college and I have shot erotica for over 30 years now.  I know what the normal male reaction is to my art work and your reaction was not that of a healthy straight male.  Because I see that reaction all the time.  Running like a scared nun or calling my glamorous pin up art pornography is not the norm for a male your age.  So what is your fucking problem with beautiful naked girls, Joseph?  Are you gay?  I mean, that's okay.  But if not, then personally I think you have a problem with human sexuality in general, or maybe just your own.  But again Joseph, that's' just my opinion from my personal experience with you.  That's why my blogs are here.  So I can document my personal experiences.  And the hell you brought with you to the arts district is unfortunately one of my experiances.  My two years of inflicted hell by you two self centered yuppie pricks.  And now you have a  permanent record too!  WurstkucheSucks.com.  A direct result of this law suit, your own actions.  And FYI,  I leave the fiction for my Sci-Fi scripts.  My blogs are my opinions from my experiances.  And my experiance with you two little assholes is clearly refleted in my blogs, get it?  I think the two of you, Joseph Pitruzzelli, Tyler Wilson, are pure up and coming republican pond scum that I'm sure want to be just like the Koch brothers.  Well your off to a great start sleazeballs!  And that's how I feel about you because that's how you treated me as your artist neighbor and nothing has changed.

NO RESPECT FOR YOUR ARTIST NEIGHBORS.  Are we learning about artist rights yet, you pathetically ignorant consciousless assholes?

ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF THE WURSTKUCHE WIENER BOY LAW SUITE!
And yes, Wurstkuche still sucks and my blogs are still on line...

It's was one year ago today that the frivolous law was filed against me and the corporate douche bags at Wurstkuche continue to this day to file paper with the court, pathetically playing the role of some kind of victim as they desperately try to deny the illegal use of the AIR next to my Arts District studio and what that illegal use did to me as their neighbor.  What pathetic assholes they are!       Here's the same post I put up when I got first the law suite.  Nothing has changed...

First Amendment to the United States Constitution

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

This is to all the ignorant yuppie assholes out there who think they can quash the constitution and an artist's first amendment rights... Yes, that would include the pathetically ignorant wiener boys of Wilson Pitruzzelli Investments, LLC and Wurstkuche restaurant, Tyler Wilson & Joseph Pitruzzelli who don't want a mirror held up to their faces or any kind of reminder of what they did to me as their neighbor after they moved into the arts district.  I've had 4 lofts in the arts district over about 25 years and never experienced anything like this until these self serving idiots moved in and totally disrupted my life with their overwhelming invasiveness on so many levels, including their blatantly arrogant sense of entitlement and lack of consideration for their neighbors, including me, that forced me into a battle with the management over there illegal use of an AIR building as a 24 hour noisy warehouse!

I am in the arts district to be around artist, to be inspired, to create, not be in the middle of the hellish nightmare Tyler Wilson & Joseph Pitruzzelli created for me by using an AIR building, a residential building for artists, as a noisy 24 hour commercial warehouse for their over priced, over cooked, mediocre sausage factory!!!  I moved out as a direct result to what those assholes did to me and that section of the arts district, an area I've had lived in over 25 years!

Tyler Wilson & Joseph Pitruzzelli and Wurstkuche restaurant turned my creative workspace into a hellish living nightmare for me.  And to date, still have no conscience or regret about what they did to me!  They tried to ruin my life by filing a false police report just to harass me with a totally unwarranted restraining order that was full of twisted bullshit and blatant lies!  Then they never even showed up in court to defend what they did or the pack of lies they vomited up in the police report!  Tyler Wilson & Joseph Pitruzzelli the owners of Wurstkuche restaurant don't have a drop of integrity between them and are just self serving lying sleaze balls that I consider the scum of the arts district!  Like spoiled children, they just don't give a damn about anything but themselves!  Why should they?  They're making to much money to care about what they have done to me or the effect they have had on any of the artist's surrounding them since they moved in!

YOU DISRUPTED MY LIFE YOU BLIND SELF CENTERED SNOTTY LITTLE ASSHOLES!!  You turned the arts district into a noisy congested living hell for me and anyone around you!  You don't have a fucking clue to what that section of the arts district was like before you invasive noisy yuppies moved in and disrupted it!  Well I do!!

My blogs are my personal opinion from my personal experiences, just as it says above.  These blogs are how I honestly feel based on my experiences and interactions with who I write about, and no one can tell me it isn't. And writing out what is bothering me and how I feel is my method of getting something out and then moving on.  Or at least trying to.  No one can tell me that my perception of people from my experiences with them are wrong.  They are my perception from my experiences!  And my experiences say that Tyler Wilson & Joseph Pitruzzelli are pathetic assholes that have earned every word I have castigated them with in my blogs!  The words I have chosen are the way I personally feel about them and I stand by every word I write in my blogs and so does the first amendment!
-David Goldner

The law suit by the sleazy republican owners of Wurstkuche is nothing but bullshit harassment to quash the blogs about my personal experiences, and to my amazement has been allowed by the courts to continue to this day.  August 18, 2012.

LAPD Assaults Arts Walk Crowd

"The LAPD acted like a pack of bullies with badges at Los Angeles Art Walk." says one art walk artist. The LAPD totally over reacted to chalk protesters and totally fucked up the Los Angeles Art Walk on July 12th for all the participating artists.  They were militant minded morons that bullied all the artist's customers away and if you watch the video, bullies with badges is what they actually look like.  LAPD was assaulting people for writing with chalk, something thousands of children do every day of the week all across America.  Are you fucking kidding me?  LAPD's justification is pathetic and self serving which makes all the cops involved just that; pathetic and self serving.

Dog Lovers Agree on LARABA

Just came from the dog park in the arts district.  I just happen to be standing next to a few people that were talking about being at the last LARABA meeting and being very up set about how they were treated by LARABA at the meeting.  (That's because LARABA cares about the businesses in the arts district, not the actual artists.)  Anyway, as I listened, one girl called the people running the meetings "elitist douche bags".  WOW!!  Those were her exact words!  Does that sound like anyone I discussed in my blogs?  Does their description sound a bit like the way I've described their douche bag of a president, Joseph Pitruzzelli?  Was she talking about him personally or is his attitude just rubbing off on the rest of them as well?  Either way I feel so vindicated that I'm not the only one that feels this way!

It's funny that LARABA cares so much about Mental Health Court in the Arts District. What about the arts district property that your own president disrupted?  You know, the actual artist in residence at 808 E. 3rd St. for over 20 years before your president showed up with his sausage nightmare, Wurstkuche restaurant??  You did nothing when your fucking hypocritical asshole president Joseph Pitruzzelli and his pansy ass little cousin illegally turned 808 E. 3rd Street into a 24 hour nightmare warehouse and harassed a long timwe arts district artist out of his own studio with their total lack of any conscience, consideration or any true knowledge of the arts district or it's history! I've been here since 1982! Where were you then? Where are you now as your president continues a year after I left my studio to try to harass me in order to cover the truth of how he treated me as his artist neighbor? I'll tell you... You were and still are all standing around with your heads up your own hypocritical asses! You're all as pathetic as your token anti-artist president! Joseph Pitruzzelli is a little yuppie prick who's ego makes him thinks he's entitled! So I'll keep giving him what I think he's entitled to... Multiple mirrors to look into for a long time to come. Mirrior Mirror on the wall, whos an asshole after all... Your president, Joseph Pitruzzelli.

TO JAN PERRY & THE CITY OF LOS ANGELES:
YOUR ARTS DISTRICT IS A SHAM!
YOU DO NOTHING FOR THE ACTUAL ARTISTS!
YOU HAVE LET THE CONDO DEVELOPERS AND INTRUSIVE
BUSINESSES PUSH ALL THE ACTUAL ARTIST OUT!

When the last artist is gone, the last loft turned retail, commercial or condo by the money
hungry corporations and the irresponsible landlords, will the city of Los Angeles still try
and call this downtown area the "LA Arts District"?

You know, this was the most intolerable things I have ever been through and the self serving representatives of the city of Los Angeles did absolutely nothing to stop it.  And the reason why is obvious...  Money!  And despite winning my court case against the inconsiderate yuppie little pricks Joseph Pitruzzelli and Tyler Wilson who own the nightmare Wurstkuche restaurant, the police, namely my impotent senior lead officer Jack Richter, did absolutely nothing to stop that late night noise, despite his personal promised to me to do so.  All I got was bullshit excuses!  It was obvious Wurstkuche was making more money for the city then any of the artist around them at that point so fuck the artists!  Right Jack?

The LADBS sited Joseph Pitruzzelli and Tyler Wilson, owners of Wurstkuche Restaurant as well as my asshole landlord Paul Solomon, and then.....  did absolutely nothing to follow up and  enforce their own order to stop the illegal activity at 808 E. 3rd St. that was a on going living nightmare for the artist neighbors, namely me.  What a fucking sham by all of you involved!

Jan Perry and the city council hide their heads in the sand when an artist needs help, but is quick to accommodate all the invasive corporations and developers that they have let invade the LA Arts District and there actions have done nothing but assist the forced exodus of all the long time artists.  Jan Perry never intervened in any way with Wurstkuche's illegal use of an AIR loft, except for bullshit lip service.  I think you and your staff are all totally uncaring, impotent and worthless to the actual artists!  I think you're all pathetic hypocrites!

808 1/2 was my 4th Artist In Residence in 30 years and I guarantee the next loft I get will not be in this City's so called LA Arts district.  This is no longer a creative environment for artists, but a new cool haven for self serving yuppies.  You have all recklessly let it become a sanctuary for condo developers, sleazy landlords like Paul Solomon and inconsiderate self serving corporate yuppie assholes, like the two douche bag owners of Wurstkuche, Joseph Pitruzzelli and Tyler Wilson who have invaded the arts district with non stop noise and congestion and totally disrupted my life as their artist neighbor with their illegal use of what was supposed to be an actual Artist In Residence loft!  All you assholes have sanctioned a fucking living nightmare for any artist and that's what Wurstkuche is!  For the city of Los Angeles to continue to call the LA Arts District an artist friendly environment is total bullshit hypocrisy and that legacy now belongs to you all!  You do nothing for the actual artists except occasionally throw them a small bone like dogs!  I think you're all money hungry self serving hypocrites from the top down!  But hey, I'm only a struggling artist and been in the Arts District for 30 years, so what do I know.

A LETTER TO: The Los Angeles River Artists and Business Association
Your president, Joseph Pitruzzelli and his idiot cousin Tyler Wilson have got to be the most self centered inconsiderate jackasses I have ever had to deal with as neighbors in the arts district and I've been in 4 lofts down here in 30 years!  For Joseph to be the president of your organization or anything with "artist" in the title is total hypocrisy on your part!  But I guess the Los Angeles River Artists and Business Association doesn't actually consider the artist in the arts district actual "stake holders", as you put it on your web site, right?

I won the court case against Joseph Pitruzzelli and Wurstkuche for violating LAMC noise ordinance codes and my rights on a daily basis and they actually appealed the ruling rather than even try to be considerate neighbors in any way, shape or form!  That’s your self serving president!  And according to the judge, that ruling that was already set in precedence long before I even sued these idiots!  They obviously were not listening to the judge in court or are just too damn arrogant to care about their actual artist neighbors or what the court ruling was.  Maybe that doesn't matter to your organization, but it mattered to me because Joseph Pitruzzelli disrupted my life!!  Do you think it is right to have a "president" that actually thinks they can win the right to disturb their neighbors just because they are successful?  What fucking arrogance!  Because that's exactly what he did!  What total hypocrisy on both your parts!

The court ruling in case number LAM 10M07169 said:  "Nighttime operations causing excess noise constitutes private nuisance even if the use is permitted by city."  And by the way, it is NOT permitted by the city!  They have been given an order to comply by the city and ordered to turn 808 E. 3rd St., an actual AIR unit back into an actual AIR unit!  But did Joseph Pitruzzelli ever comply?  NO!  That's your hypocritical president!  It's amazing what money will make you guys overlook!

I actually thought they got it and were going to comply for the first week or so after the court ruling.  But that’s how long it lasted, just a week or so, which seems to be the edge of Joseph’s  attention span and the time limit on any promise to be quieter they he ever made me since they moved in here.  His arrogance is disgusting!  They tortured me out ofdd my studio as their neighbor from the first week they were here!  And it still hasn’t stopped!  They drag kegs and restaurant supplies in and out of an Artist in Residence loft that they illegally used as a noisy beer keg warehouse in what was once an actual AIR building, not a haven for yuppie pricks like Joseph Pitruzzelli.   The arts district is supposed to be a creative environment, isn't it?  And even as noisy as they are during the day, the noise is supposed to stop after 10:00 pm according to the law, not 3:30 am!

Months after the city ordered Joseph Pitruzzelli  to comply and turn 808 E. 3rd Street back into an actual Artist in Residence they did NOTHING!  The order to comply was ignored, and Joseph Pitruzzelli and Tyler Wilson did nothing but continued to ignore that city order to comply.  Then Joseph Pitruzzelli appealed the court ruling so he could continue to torture his artist neighbors with his lack of conscience and non stop nightmare of 24 hour noise.  To say they are a "nuisance" to the actual artists in the arts district is an incredible understatement.  Joseph Pitruzzelli and Tyler Wilson are just blatant inconsiderate jackasses and have done nothing but disrupt their artist neighbor’s lives since they got to the LA Arts District!  They just don't care and they don’t get it!  That’s your hypocritical president!  The city said it was wrong, the courts said it is wrong.  The only ones who think it was okay to be as inconsiderate as they want to be are Joseph Pitruzzelli and Tyler Wilson and your organization!

Again that's your president of the Los Angeles River Artists and Business Association!  Why don't you guys just call it the Los Angeles Business Association because you really can't give a damn about the actual artists if you have a self serving jackass like Joseph Pitruzzelli as your president!

THE LA ARTS DISTRICT, PUTTING DAVID IN A BATTLE WITH HIS LANDLORDS OVER THE ILLEGAL USE OF THE ARTIST LOFT DIRECTLY NEXT TO HIM AS A 24 HOUR COMMERCIAL WAREHOUSE FOR WURSTKUCHE RESTAURANT.


BELOW ARE JUST A FEW STILLS FROM A WINDOW CAM OF JUST ONE SINGLE NIGHT WHERE EMPLOYEES DRAGGED SUPPLIES IN AND OUT OF AN ARTIST IN RESIDENCE UNIT OVER 130 TIMES BETWEEN 10:00 PM AND 3:30 AM.
THIS HAPPENED EVERY NIGHT, 7 DAYS A WEEK AFTER WURSTKUCHE RESTAURANT OPENED.  RESIDENTIAL HOURS WERE NEVER RESPECTED BY WURSTKUCHE RESTAURANT'S OWNERS, JOSEPH PITRUZZELLI & TYLER
WILSON WHO WERE CITED BY THE CITY OF LOS ANGELES FOR THAT ILLEGAL USE OF 808 E. 3RD ST., AN ARTIST IN RESIDENCE LOFT THEY WERE USING NEXT TO THE RESTAURANT AS A NOISY 24 HOUR COMMERCIAL
WAREHOUSE AFTER MONTHS OF COMPLAINTS BY THEIR ARTIST NEIGHBOR, DAVID GOLDNER.  THIS VIOLATION OF LADBS & LAMC NOISE ORDINANCE CODES AS WELL AS THEIR VIOLATION OF THEIR NEIGHBORS PEACE
AND QUITE HAPPENED 7 DAYS A WEEK AFTER WURSTKUCHE RESTAURANT OPENED DOWNTOWN IN THE LA ARTS DISTRICT.   WURSTKUCHE'S DISRUPTIVE USE CONTINUED EVEN AFTER THE CITY CITED THEM AND
ORDERED THEM TO TURN THAT UNIT BACK INTO AN A.I.R. UNIT AND DESPITE THE FACT THAT THEY KNEW HOW DISRUPTIVE IT WAS FOR THEIR ARTIST NEIGHBOR, DAVID GOLDNER. BUT JOSEPH PITRUZZELLI &
TYLER WILSON REFUSED TO STOP THE ILLEGAL USE BECAUSE IT WAS VERY CONVENIENT FOR THEM TO USE THAT RESIDENCE NEXT TO THEIR RESTAURANT AS THEIR STORAGE WAREHOUSE, NO MATTER HOW NOISY
AND DISRUPTIVE IT WAS TO THE SURROUNDING ARTISTS.  DAMN THEIR ARTIST NEIGHBORS!  AND THEY DID AS THEY TURNED DAVID GOLDNER'S CREATIVE LIVE / WORK ARTIST LOFT INTO A 24 HOUR LIVING NIGHTMARE FOR
HIM AND CREATED A BATTLE FOR DAVID WITH THE BUILDINGS LANDLORD, PAUL SOLOMON, WHO WAS ALSO CITED BY THE CITY OF LOS ANGELES FOR THE ILLEGAL USE OF 808 E. 3RD STREET AS A COMMERCIAL WAREHOUSE.


ON VIDEO, WURST EMPLOYEES DRAG SUPPLIES IN AND OUT OF AN ARTIST IN RESIDENCE UNIT OVER 130 TIMES BETWEEN 10:00 PM AND 3:30 AM.

In 2009, Joseph Pitruzzelli & Tyler Wilson rented an Artist in Residence loft in the Los Angeles Arts District and turned it
into a illegal warehouse for their restaurant next door.  After more then a year of written and verbal complaints from their
artist neighbor David Goldner to Joseph Pitruzzelli and Tyler Wilson about respecting the residential aspect of the A.I.R. building
with regards to Wurstkuche Restaurant's illegal late night, none stop noisy use of an un-insulated artist's loft as a 24 hour commercial
warehouse that was sharing a common wall with artist David Goldner's live / work studio, David received an email reply from
Wurstkuche owner Joseph Pitruzzelli, who made his concerns clear, or as he did, made it clear his lack of any concern or respect for
David as an artist or a neighbor, as well as his lack of knowledge of the history of the Los Angeles Arts District, or why his Arts
District neighbor, artist David Goldner was actually living in the arts district in the first place, nor did Joseph care.  For with
their success, also came their blatant arrogance and denial of how overwhelmingly and ever glowingly intrusive they were as
neighbors. This was Joseph Pitruzzelli's answer on behalf of Wilson Pitruzzelli Investments LLC and Wurstkuche Restaurant...

. . . "I don't need to talk to my lawyer about what breach of quite enjoyment means and to know that your dogs barking (are they even licensed?), your crazy shouting and your smut porn showroom across from a church is more of a case . You live in a warehouse district, you live in a WAREHOUSE on the ground floor directly on the street . . . 

 . . . I suggest you close your window, wear earplugs, move your bed, put a sleeping mask on, buy an air filter, or move to a cave where there is no one to bother you, whatever helps.  Again you live in a WAREHOUSE on 3rd street!"

--Joseph Pitruzzelli
June 11, 2010
Now does that sound like a person that has any respect or any actual knowledge of the LA Arts District or why artists are actually
living next door to each other in a legal residential lofts (not a warehouses) in this downtown arts district?  And this is the person
who has now been appointed the new tokan president of The Los Angeles River Artists Association? With what cridentials? "Money
and a big place to meet?"  Or is it his obviouse lack of any sexual enlightenment to know what "smut and porn" actually are?

THIS IS DIRECT LINK TO DAVID GOLDNER'S
LATEST ART BOOK OF "SMUT and PORN".

THIS IS A LINK TO EMAIL COMPLAINTS ABOUT
WURSTKUCHE'S ILLEGAL USE OF ARTS DISTRICT
LOFT AS A COMMERCIAL WAREHOUSE

Did Joseph realize or care that David Goldner had been an artist and living in the LA Arts District in 4 different artist
lofts over 30 years, since 1982?  Joseph Pitruzzelli and Tyler Wilson only arrived in 2009 and not as artists, but as a
noisy disruptive commercial business. And then they personally and illegally declared that what was an artist loft in
the LA Arts District, to now be their own personal 24 hour warehouse, and in doing so disrupted their actual artist
neighbor's long time creative live / work loft, with no conscience about what they were doing nor any respect for any
of their actual artist neighbors.  These were the policies of Joseph Pitruzzelli, Tyler Wilson aka Wilson Pitruzzelli
Investments LLC, aka Wurstkuche Restaurant.

808 1/2 E. 3rd St. was one of the nicest photography studio's in the LA Arts District and for many many years.
 This is not the warehouse district!!  And it's the Arts district because of the actual artists.  The studios at 808 and
808 1/2 E. 3rd St were great creative live work spaces, and for many decades, at least before Wurstkuche arrived.
It was Joseph Pitruzzelli and Tyler Wilson, aka Wilson Pitruzzelli Investments LLC, aka Wurstkuche Restaurant that
in 2009 turned the clock and 808 E. 3rd Street backwards by using that AIR unit in a residential building as an actual
24 hour noisy commercial warehouse in the heart of the Los Angeles Arts District and with no regard for disrupting
their artist neighbors on a daily and nightly basis. Wurstkuche was an artist's nightmare come true and on August 10th,
2010, after 18 months of complaing to  Joseph Pitruzzelli and Tyler Wilson, the building's landlords, The City Inspectors,
The neighborhood Police, The city council, and any one else that listened to the problem, David Goldner finally could
stand no more and filed a law suit himself against Joseph Pitruzzelli and Tyler Wilson, dba Wurstkuche Restaurant.

PDF FILE OF WURSTKUCHE LAW SUIT
Joseph_Pittruzzelli_Loft_Law_Suit_2010.pdf

Then on August 25, 2010, just two weeks after David Goldner filed his law suit and after months of phone calls,
letters and emails to the city of Los Angeles to look into the illegal 24 hour commercial use of an artist loft, 808
E. 3rd St., a long time Artist in Residence unit as a commercial warehouse, the city of Los Angeles finally did,
and promptly cited Tyler Wilson, on behalf of Wurstkuche Restaurant for that on going illegal use that had
by that time been going on for 18 torturous months for David Goldner!  See city documents below...

BUT THEN THEY STILL NEVER STOPPED!!!!!!!!!!!

Enlargement of declaration below.  Click above images for PDF file of document.

What kind of people come into the LA Arts District and put their artist neighbor through this in his own studio?

Obviously not another artist... and it turns out they are not people at all... because despite the law suit ruling in David
Goldner's favor, (see PDF below), Joseph Pitruzzelli on behalf of Wurstkuche Restaurant went back to court to appeal
the ruling and declared that he and Tyler Wilson where actually Wilson Pitruzzelli Investments LLC, a corporation,
and not actual feeling individual human people at all. (Nor did they have to try and live next to their own restaurant!)

Corporate or human, Wilson Pitruzzelli Investments LLC, or Joseph Pitruzzelli and Tyler Wilson, David Goldner's law suit clearly
lays out the on going disruption the illegal use of an artist in residence loft directly next to him as a noisy 24 hour commercial
warehouse that shared a common wall with his art studio and the continue 24 hour disruption it was causing for him personally.
 David Goldner claims that Joseph Pitruzzelli  would not accept losing the law suit nor did he want to compromise, be considerate
of the residential aspect of  the AIR loft, or stop his Corporations late night illegal use of the AIR unit next to him in any way, and
that this just shows the arrogant, narrow minded and consciously horrendous corporate attitude that David Goldner had to deal with
for 18 months, since Wurstkuche Restaurant started illegally using the AIR loft directly next to him in 2009.  It was convenient for
Joseph Pitruzzelli, Tyler Wilson and "the corporation" to continue to use that AIR and they've had no conscious about the 24 hour
torturous nightmare they very well knew they had created in their neighbor, David Goldner's life.  This constant disruption started
February 2009 and went to February 2011, when David Goldner finally moved out of the LA Arts District as a direct result of
Wilson Pitruzzelli Investments LLC's continued illegal use of the AIR unit next to him that put him in a battle with the landlord,
developer Paul Solomon over that illegal use of that creative live / work studio as Wurstkuche Restaurant's 24 hour commercial
warehouse that he too very well knew was noise on a 24 hour schedule and a daily nightmare for his artist tenant, David Goldner.

PDF FILE OF LAW SUIT JUDGMENT
Joseph_Pittuzzelli_Loft_Law_Suit_Ruling_2010.pdf

Whatever corporate name they want to call themselves, Joseph Pitruzzelli and Tyler Wilson have had absolutely no
respect for their artist neighbors since they arrived in the Los Angeles Arts District.  The use of an AIR as a warehouse
was wrong from the very start and something David Goldner had never experienced from any neighbor or a landlord
in 30 years in the LA Arts District.



PDF FILE OF:  EMAIL COMPLAIT AGAINST WURSTKUCHE RESTAURANT TO LADBS:
Email_ Complaint_to LADBS_About_Wurstkuche_Violating_LADBS_Codes.pdf
 

And again on August 25, 2010, two weeks after David Goldner filed his law suit and after months of phone calls,
letters and emails to the city of Los Angeles to look into the illegal 24 hour commercial use of an artist loft, 808 E.
3rd St., a long time Artist in Residence unit as a commercial warehouse, the city of Los Angeles finally did and
agreed with David Goldner, promptly citing both Tyler Wilson on behalf of Wurstkuche Restaurant as well as citing
building owner Paul Solomon for that on going illegal use that had by that time had been going on directly next to
David Goldner for 18 torturous months.  And what kind of landlord allows this to happen?  Could he be a lawyer?
PFD documents of LADBS citing below...

LADBS citing of Landlord Paul Solomon for Wurstkutche's illegal use of AIR unit:
 LADBS_Citing_of_Paul_Solomon_and_Wurstkutche_Restaraunt_for_illegal_use_of_AIR.pdf

The buildings owner, Paul Solomon was also cited for the illegal use of an A.I.R. as a warehouse and still did nothing to stop illegal usage by Wurstkuche, even after the citing and in fact tried to gets permits to turn the long time A.I.R. building back into the warehouse it was when it was built in the 1920's.  And today, those permits, (if he actually ever got them) have killed and continue to kill any creative aspect of what was once a wonderful artist's studio since the 70's. Solomon did what was best for his pockets, with no regard for the actual artist's in his so called Artist In Residence building on 808 1/2 E. 3rd Street.

POSTED 7/27/2010

Jan Perry, Los Angeles City Council:
Your head is in a hole!
 

Jan,
I am posting this on my blog as well.  I'm an artist living in an Artist in Residence building that is not complying with LADBS codes.  Linear City, owned by Paul Solomon and Allen Schneider has been allowing a commercial client, Wurstkuche Restaurant, to rent the live / work unit next to me in 808 E. 3rd St., and use it commercially as a warehouse and an extension of their restaurant at 800 E. 3rd, next door, on a 24 hour basis.  I am the artist that actually lives in 808 1/2 E. 3rd, next door to 808.  I have complained and complained to the management, to the restaurant renting it,  Wurstkuche.  To the police senior lead in my area...  But nothing has stopped this.  Their 24 hour activity in this unit has been, and continues to be totally disruptive and using it late night is totally incompatible with residential as LADBS code 91.8501.4. states.  But for almost 18 months now with this restaurants success, this has gone on and grown into a monster!  And the only enforcement the LADBS has recommended to me, is that I personally file a law suit against the landlord and those involved!  And after multiple written complaints to my senior lead, the police have said that they can do nothing.  So I have to file a law suit?  That's the city's answer to me?  Don't you think that's absurd?!   The city won't enforce their own laws?  All I've gotten is the pass the buck game since I've asked for help with this.

This is an AIR building and supposed to be a creative live / work space, and a commercial business can not use it on a 24 hours basis.  Hours of operation in a residential building has to be enforced!  The city needs to enforce their codes and help the artist who are being taken advantage of constantly by landlords.  I know that Linear City is getting more for that space and that is why they are not lifting a finger to stop the Restaurant's usage.  They would rather throw me out and turn this space retail as well, and have told me that to my face.  I have no doubt they are trying to annoy me away!  So basically I'm getting screwed by an inconsiderate none artist neighbor and a money hungry retail minded landlord that doesn't care!  Why are the actual Artist's in the Arts District the last ones thought about in this terrible economy!  Please help!

That said, and to be honest, because I'm not expecting any cavalry, I'm actually taking the city's advice and filing the first law suit this week.  I sent the letter below today and will be following it up with action this week.  The owners of Wurstkuche have become arrogant with their success and don't care if they wake me all hours of the night or early morning by using that unit as a warehouse.  At this point, the suit may not even stop them.  But being kept awake every night and then woken again almost every morning has effected my health, peace of mind, and my work and it has to stop, or at the least be paid for!

These guys come to the art's district and don't care about the actual artist living next to them.  I'm an artist and I have have had 5 lofts in the arts district in the last 30 years.  When the last artist is actually gone from this area, the last loft turned retail or condo to make a few dollars more for some landlord, will the city still call this area the LA Arts District?  Who is the city attracting when the landlords are aloud to chase us off like this?

-David Goldner

When the last artist is gone, the last loft turned retail, commercial or condo by the money hungry landlords, will the city of Los Angeles still try and call this downtown area the "Arts District"?

A blog letter to Paul Solomon and Linear City...

Paul,
After laying in bed, trying to fall asleep for 3 hours now, I can't!  Do you know why?  Because every 2 minutes the commercial business you've allowed to move into this Artist In Residence loft right next to me in 808 is dragging kegs and restaurant supplies in and out, in and out, in and out!  It is now 3:00 am in the morning and it is a fucking revolving door that still hasn't stopped!  This is just bullshit!   I live here, remember!?  This is an AIR building isn't it??  This is actually effecting my health and my peace of mind!  What the fuck don't you get??   You can't put a noisy 24 hour warehouse next to a residence!  This is what you have forced me to deal with every fucking night now for well over a year!  And neither you or your new manager, David Schneider, your partner Allen Schneider's son, has done one damn thing except lie to me about stopping it!

You told me you wanted to turn this space retail the first year I moved in here.  But while someone is still living here?  It has become very obvious to me that you just don't give a damn and are actually trying to drive me out of this studio so you can turn this space into retail or a commercial space just to make a few more bucks and now, not have to comply with LADBS or LAMC noise ordenence codes with regards to me living next to it.  This is the same "screw the artist" mentality that I got from the gallery that just killed me, and the same mentality that has gotten most of America into the financial hole it's now in!  Kick 'em when they're down, right?  And that is exactly what you did Paul.  Rima Fine Art defrauded me just weeks before you served me and I asked you personally for your help to set up a show or two to help me catch up, didn't I?  But you didn't even give me the courtesy of a response, and management knew I was just days out of the hospital for my hip surgery when you served me!  Like I said.  You kicked me when I was down rather then even consider helping.  And haven't answered one email from me.  So I'm posting this as a blog instead of waisting my time sending it to you.  I got tired of getting shit on this past year by everyone, including Linear City and that's why I'm fighting back, win or loose!

The first 3 years I was here, my neighbor in 808, Jeb, was running a rock and roll recording studio and had 4 people living in back, and I never had one noise problem!  But just like you did to me after my first year here, you refused to give Jeb a new lease and chased him away after being in that space for 12 years.  I have complained to you and Linear City in writing since the first week you rented that newly gutted, un-insulated space as a metal shop for Wurstkuche's construction.  Allowing them to literally grind metal and do heavy construction in there right next to me, again, with no more insulation in the walls, and no consideration for me what so ever.  The noise was so loud I literally had to leave my studio multiple times.  The manager at that time, Frank, assured me Linear City or the new tenants would be insulating the walls.  Frank also assured me that Linear City would make sure the tenants in there would comply with the residential hours of an AIR building.  BULLSHIT!   LIES!  ALL FUCKING LIES!  Never happened!

You have tortured me!  Forcing me to endure their intrusive construction, their none stop traffic and now the never ending banging of metal beer kegs well into the night, 24 / 7 for well over a year now.  And despite my complaints, niether Linear City or any management you appointed have done one damn thing to stop it, constrain the hours, or insulate to muffle the noise!  You have allowed them to make 808 an illegal extension of their restaurant with absolutely no consideration for the fact that I actually live right next to it on the other side of a thin plaster wall!  They have done nothing but bring noise and 24 hour disruptive activity in what was, and still should be, a peaceful creative artist environment!  You have done absolutely nothing to enforce the residential aspect of this Artist In Residence building.  Nothing!  This is a total breach of quiet enjoyment of this space and at this point I actually wish I never moved in here!  All I've gotten from you and Linear City is broken promises, bullshit appeasement, pass the buck game playing and out right blatant lies since I moved in here!  And despite my complaints, you haven't done one damn thing to change or rectify this situation except to look for an opportunity to evict me rather then lift one fucking finger to help in any way!!

My first impression of you that I blogged about in 2008 was right on the button and it seems that everything my x-neighbors Jeb and Todd said about you was absolutely true!  You don't give a fuck about the artists in the arts district!  All you give a damn about is how to make money off of us.  This became even more apparent when I saw the tiny cubicles you are renting as "artist work spaces" in your building on Industrial.   They are nothing more then fucking closets!  Tiny cubicles with 4 walls and a door!  Gee.  You put a lot of care and thought into that one, didn't you?

You are by far one of the most self centered inconsiderate landlords I or any artist could ever have!  And that is my experience.  You have tortured me with your lack of consideration and it has, and continues to, effect my health, my peace of mind, my work and my ability to just get a fucking nights sleep!  Something I should be doing right now rather then writing this blog at 3:00 AM!

--David G.

 


Posted 1/25/11

TO THE CITY OF LOS ANGELES:  YOUR ARTS DISTRICT IS A SHAME! 
YOU DO NOTHING FOR THE ACTUAL ARTISTS.  YOU LET THE CONDO
DEVELOPERS AND INTRUSIVE BUSINESSES PUSH US ALL OUT!
When the last artist is gone, the last loft turned retail, commercial or condo by the money hungry
landlords, will the city of Los Angeles still try and call this downtown area the "Arts District"?

You know, this is the most intolerable thing I have ever been through and the city of Los Angeles has done absolutely nothing to stop it in two years.  And dispite winning my court case against the inconsiderate yuppie pricks that own Wurstkuche, the police still do absolutely nothing to stop the late night noise when called.  The LADBS sited Wurstkuche and my landlord Paul Solomon and then have done absolutely nothing since to enforce their order or stop the illegal activity at 808 E. 3rd St..  Jan Perry and the city council hide their heads in the sand and have done nothing to stop this or even intervene in any way.  I think you are all totally impotent and worthless!  I think you're all pathetic!  This is my 4th Artist In Residence in 25 years and I guarantee the next loft I get will not be in this City's so called Arts district.  This is no longer a creative environment for artists.  You have all recklessly let it become a developers haven for condos and inconsiderate self serving assholes, like the two douche bag owners of Wurstkuche who have come here and totally disrupted my life!  To call this the Arts District is total hypocrisy and that legacy now belongs to you all!  You do nothing for the actual artists.  Hope you're all proud.

--David Goldner

L.A. Arts District Worst Landlord Award goes to Developer Paul Solomon!

Paul Solomon, you're an egregious inconsiderate self serving jackass and the worst landlord an artist could be cursed with in the L.A. Arts District.  You and you partner Alan Schneider have blatantly and willfully made my life a living hell for the last two years with your lack of conscience and consideration just to make a few bucks more on an illegal commercial use of the Artist in Residence unit directly next to me and you're a pathetic sleazy douche bag for doing so.  This is supposed to be a creative work space and you have turned it into an artist worst nightmare.  You have no respect for your artist tenants and I have no respect for a self serving piece of shit like you!  Fuck you, you're an asshole, and you are here by awarded the worst landlord in the arts district, an award of shame you well deserve.  Sit on it and rotate!
