maybe .....if possible....find out the dude's physical address and whatnot........so we can send him our poop (yeah....literal 'poop ")
I once threw a bag of dog shit into this gas station that tried to over charge me and refused to give me the money he stole.. But yea fuck them... with poop

So Matt: Not sure if you were aware (or if you care), but this guy is blaming you specifically for most of the trash in the Slabs: http://slabcity.org/dumping.asp
I personally think that entire page is pants-pissingly funny as fuck.

**Edit**
Oh, and he posted yours and Charlie Vollrath's email account. Not sure if old news. Still felt like you should know about your email being given out.

Wow.

Does the FBI have agents to spare answering phone calls and nasty emails about hurt feelings?

The level of detail and rage in that call-out is... disturbingly hilarious. Guess it is easier to post myspace (myspace??!) photos and call someone a dirty hippie than to focus on the unwanted celebrity garnered by being front page LA Times news.

Was anyone else there for Open Mic Night at the Apocalypse in early 2012 when every single deputy in Imperial County formed a wall of cruisers and forbid anyone from playing music? I mean it has been a few years since I went there but chartering buses for LA hipsters to come drink shitty beer and expensive liquor brings a lot more negative influence than random folk passing through. You shoulda seen the mountain of trash out past the range... Booze bottles and cans, discarded camping equipment, edible food. (I am pretty sure the producers of that venture bussed their trash out though so that is good... but not all tourists are as responsible.)

I know they're gone now but people like Angel and Scooter (Karma Kitchen) could have used a paypal button like that instead of some combative schlub posting flames on his website.

I was there for that. That was some fuck up shit. We snuck most of the bands over to East Jesus and had them play over there.

hi Matt!! Is this still a problem?? I tried to go to the website and just got a weird Linux message.
Anyway. Me and a friend were collaborating on the idea of setting up a home base for Womyn on The Road in the slabs. Anyway, right now, they're carrying the torch on actually making it happen, (Most likely catering towards mostly, if not exclusively LGBTQ) and I know that they're going to utilize the internet to take advantage of resources and crowdfunding to make it happen. I would hate for people wanting to help end up donating to the scammer instead!!!

at this point i'm waiting to see. the guy took the slabcity.org website offline and put up that message just before october:

https://web.archive.org/web/20150815000000*/http://slabcity.org

so it's been like that for almost four months now. if i had to guess it's probably offline for good, but i'm going to keep tabs on it and let people know if it comes back.

I know this post is old, but I'm going to school to get a degree in information technology and I would be interested in buying the domain "www.slabcity.com" in order to give people a real website to go to in relation to Slab City and it's community members, if I could get a little support or feedback on the subject, I go ahead and get started on this and report back when it's completed.

@AtlasTheHobo That would be great.. If you don't get it I've inquired about it as I'm working on a passion project for Slab City and it would be a great place to share it and help the community.

That website name that was mentioned was going to range in the thousands of dollars, I'm being told, but I have found a website that is called www.slab-city.com which could be cheaper (I don't see how a dash makes our breaks a website name price, but works for me) but, honestly it's going to take a while to get off of the ground on this one for me. I don't know what time frame you are working on but it would be awesome if maybe we could put our thoughts together on this. I'll be there in early may to observe and find out what the community wants to see on the webpage (blogs, news, chats, events, resources, etc.). I was also thinking along the lines of making part of the website community run and driven( like storyline articles, blogs, and chats). I'll be making the website while I'm there to get an idea of design, I just won't start publishing it until I can secure a domain name. I'm looking at two or three weeks there getting a feel for the place, and then about two to three months before the website is actually up due to financial reasons.

whichever you think sounds best, just do a good job since most slab city websites don't last very long and therefore don't get much web presence.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $100.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
