Since Aaron is only barely updating the Members Only section of the site, although I’m sure he or Levi will post something publicly, eventually, Amanda isn’t touching this, and is not pleased. But there are some strange emails to address, some business to take care of I’m a model, not a musician, so bear with me, I have been referred to as The Spokesmodel for FilmsCrewBand, a title I’ve been happy to take for the last few years. The limited edition vinyl double album for FilmsCrewBand did ship, it was sold out well before it shipped, as of yet, no one has the actual title to it, not that there haven’t been some good guesses. Those of you who have it, will be receiving a follow up package. Thanks to those who came to The Paley Center event, although I have to admit all of the Christopher questions were a bit much. And no, I haven’t met him, he’s not the type of person I would ever like to know, ever. There has been some discussion about a text message Christopher sent Shawn, which Shawn in turn sent to Aaron, who has been sharing it. Aaron has titled Christopher’s text message ’The Manifesto’, so it will always be referred to as ’The Manifesto’ or ‘Christopher’s Manifesto’, and of course I have it, and I will say it is a ‘Manifesto’ however I don’t believe it, or that he wrote it. I’ve known Shawn since high school, there’s little about him that I don’t know. The ones who can’t have him write ‘Manifestos’, sometimes the ones who can’t have him try to turn the situation back on Shawn as it is his fault, it never is, and that is somewhat of what has happened here, however Christopher pursued Shawn and if this is true, he would have been leading him on for nearly a year, which would indicate Christopher has some psychological problems. What really happened here, is Christopher P Reyher blocked Shawn’s phone after Christopher discovered that Shawn had been told that Cameron Reyher was not his name but his brother’s name, by a friend of Christopher’s who got in touch through the site. Christopher’s Manifesto didn’t even bother to address the all important fact that for nearly a year of telling Shawn he loved him, Cameron was not his name. Then the website started getting broken into and getting defaced, Jay and his team just weren’t having that and turned the matter over to the New York City Cybercrimes Division, which led them to the FBI, it will take some time for them to do their investigation, but it looks like someone in Chicago will be getting a visit from the authorities eventually since it is a federal crime known as The Computer Fraud and Abuse Act. Christopher P Reyher’s ‘Manifesto’ does reference these break ins, however ‘The Manifesto’ keeps referring to Krista Kumpf being innocent, perhaps she wrote ‘The Manifesto’. It also pleads to keep Christopher’s family out of it, I don’t understand that, Christopher was using his brother’s name, he brought his family into it. I for one hope his family have read everything on this website, it likely won’t matter because the Reyher family will be aware of everything, as I understand it, I think the band’s management have already filed some type of charges against Christopher on Shawn’s behalf, even though Shawn was against it, Shawn then disappeared, ironically he is the only one who can stop the charges from being pressed. This hasn’t been an atmosphere where the band can celebrate the release of their album. Just imagine someone who you talk to daily who says they love you, texts you after you have found out they were using their brother’s name instead of their own, and be told you couldn’t say anything about it. Shawn left his last words on his section of the site, (which someone tried to take down), they are quite moving. Unfortunately Christopher Reyher can’t be moved and is some sort of heartless monster. What was rich were Aaron’s archive of texts with Christopher, in which Christopher was asked who Christopher was after some Periscoper, (Frenchguy1) had already given the game away last December, and Christopher denied it. I am sure Aaron plans to publish those texts, Aaron feels betrayed, but more importantly he is angry that Christopher did this to Shawn, to put it bluntly a lot of people are angry that Christopher did whatever this yet to be named psychological disorder is to Shawn. Whoever this Krista Kumpf is needs to have her head examined thoroughly if she condones Christopher’s behavior.
Now to answer some questions we’ve received or been asked about Christopher’s contribution to this catastrophe that he brought upon Shawn, Aaron, the band, not to mention himself. First of all, I have had no contact whatsoever with Christopher, I just don’t see him as the type of person I would come into contact with, he’s not NYC, let’s leave it at that, I don’t want to be insulting. Michael Philosopher keeps emailing the site, (I don’t think his last name is Philosopher, he claims he is a social media guru, who’s YouTube channel is no longer available), I hate to break it to Michael Philosopher, but there is no Cameron, Michael can keep thinking there is a Cameron, (there is but not the one he thinks), Cameron’s name is Christopher. Most of the email we get from Michael Philosopher is utterly nonsensical, although for some reason he has an axe to grind with Christopher, and somehow knows Aaron, and thinks that the band’s management demanding Shawn to hand over all of his data after we learned Cameron Reyher was actually Christopher, somehow equates to theft, no, that’s a security precaution, a guy uses his brother’s name, tells him he loves him for nearly a year, then blocks his phone and comes up with a ‘Manifesto’, stalker or a mental case is the first thing on their management’s mind, let’s get real. Michael Philosopher wants to know Christopher’s new Periscope channel so he can block it, and that is an amusing shower thought, which family member will Christopher name himself after on the internet next? He could be anonymous, but that worked out so well for that Frenchguy1, didn’t it? He could keep using the name Cameron, but that will require some explanation to the people who know him as Cameron now that it’s really obvious he is Christopher, and while I’m not really caught up in all of that, he’s not going to have an audience, nor is he going to be a voice for liberal politics because of his fraudulent nature, those Alt-Right trolls look for any excuse to bring the left down, in Christopher they have a reason. It could be possible that Christopher was never a liberal, Christopher as @cameronthegreat, Borat, (whatever all of those other periscope accounts are about) is low hanging fruit to get recruited by the Alt-Right, who get all of their talking points from Russia, (if you are keeping up with that in the NY Times. Christopher though all of his lying could just be a provocateur on the left, he’s not good voice for getting that maniac out of office, Christopher is a liability for the left.
Some of you have asked what has Shawn’s reaction to all of this been, why hasn’t he done anything, etc. You have to imagine what it was like for him, he was lied to by someone who said they loved him, wanted to live with him, and when it was revealed that he was lying about his name, Christopher blocked his phone and had a ‘Manifesto’ written, meaning Christopher doesn’t want to deal with what he’s done. In Christopher’s ‘Manifesto’ he seems to insist that Shawn puts things about his family on the site, which if Christopher would have written it he would have known that wouldn’t be the case, here’s where things get interesting, Christopher knows details about Shawn, therefor he would know Shawn has no login to the main part of the site, and only updates his part of the site, which is something he has done reluctantly and not very often. Shawn left a parting message, read it, let it sink in, there’s a lot in there. Then Shawn just left, we are concerned. Aaron or Levi haven’t heard from him, neither have I. What Christopher is referring to in his ‘Manifesto’ is an entry by Levi, in which extracted text messages from Shawn’s phone were put. Christopher’s Manifesto talks a lot about the “Innocence” of Krista Kumpf, the entry has to do with Krista Kumpf blocking everyone in the band on Twitter and Periscope after trying to connect with them, not to mention some very unkind things she said about Shawn on Periscope, so if we are to take a step back, we are supposed to understand that Krista Kumpf can do whatever damage she pleases and we are supposed to applaud, when it looks like Krista Kumpf broke into this site and defaced it. In Shawn’s text messages, (which we all have now thanks to their management), Christopher says that Krista is a liar and unstable. In the Christopher Manifesto, he refers to Krista as not being manipulative, when in his previous texts he makes the point she is. It has been pointed out that this is how Krista Kumpf wanted everything to play out, the problem is, Krista Kumpf knows nothing about Shawn, Aaron, Levi, or anyone in the band and who they associate with, or how protective the people around Shawn are of him, he inspires that in people, he is a rarity, this is something that undoubtedly Christopher knows, and something Christopher is so in denial about that he wants to destroy it. I’ve seen these boys that follow Shawn around, they want him, if they can’t get their way they try to turn on him, and it always ends in failure, Shawn will have always been kind to them.
Some of you have asked about Daniel Lukas. I have not met Daniel. I do know that Daniel was very cooperative with the band’s management and legal team about Christopher, and that he was cooperative with Shawn, Aaron, Levi, Andrew, and Jay. Daniel made a complete confession of his activities involving this situation on his websites. His approach to Shawn was unusual to say the least, however it wasn’t about Shawn, it was about getting Christopher’s attention that his online identity crisis had been found out, Daniel’s approach to writing about this situation on his website was so obscure, that someone would have to know what they were looking for, however Daniel’s writing was getting a lot of page views. Yes, Christopher did demand that Shawn take a restraining order out on Daniel, Christopher did convince Aaron that Daniel was a threat, it turns out that Daniel is a law student. Daniel explained some of this to the band, that he felt socially awkward because he is on the autism spectrum, with a great deal of anxiety. According to the texts Aaron shared with me, it was Christopher who alerted Aaron to Daniel’s website, which obviously Aaron didn’t understand, as he didn’t know Cameron was Christopher, Aaron is left defending Christopher unknowing he is not Cameron against Daniel who is trying to give Christopher a message, while at the same time at Christopher’s request, making sure Daniel never got anywhere near Shawn. That is an interesting logic loop. As it turned out Christopher put Daniel where he didn’t want him. It is doubtful Shawn is talking to Daniel, but as it stands, we can all talk to Daniel now. It has been asked if Daniel will be joining Films Crew, I don’t have an answer for this, as I understand it, Daniel likes to play Black Metal and has his own band. The band’s management stopped sending out Cease and Desist requests to people writing about Christopher, unless they violate any DMCA rules regarding the band, who has a legal page for that HERE.
For those of you, (and I know you’re out there), for Shawn to have gotten an email from the site from someone who knew Christopher, (and that he wasn’t Cameron), that email had to go through several people. From Jay’s team to the management team, to make sure it was legitimate. When I’m pointed to an email which is asking the band if they know about some kept man in Hell’s Kitchen who’s internet career is ruined, I just presume that it is somehow Periscope related nonsense, the band isn’t going to know a kept man in Hell’s Kitchen who’s internet career is ruined, they don’t travel in those circles, I have access to a contacts database, so someone knows something about him, I don’t know how it matches up. I’m not exactly a fan of Periscope, I’ve checked it out on the band’s account that is usually occupied by Shawn aside from two or three people, it’s an Alt-Right narcissist explosion. All of these people curious about Christopher Reyher, well that’s Christopher’s fault, not the bands’. When people noticed the site had been hacked, their curiosity grew, because it was very noticeable. If Krista Kumpf wanted something taken down, or modified, she could have emailed the site, rather than giving people something to look at, it’s just drawing attention to yourself. Why Shawn’s last entry was deleted is purely criminal, that would be denying him any say in this, something he still really hasn’t had, as his last writing is sheer stream of consciousness after discovering he had been deceived on the deepest possible level, it is doubtful Christopher would have denied him that, I doubt Christopher has given it the thorough read it deserves. Christopher’s logins have not been taken away, however, he will have to contact Jay to get back into Coincidental Events, as he obviously gave his password to Krista Kumpf, so his credentials have been changed. This site has always been run as a democracy, the band okays something before it goes up, or before it is taken down for some reason or other. Christopher has complete access to his part of the site, he ask for that site, and it was paid for. If I were Christopher, I would start doing some quick writing, perhaps he can put his ‘Manifesto’ up there, however that would make him look like more of an abysmal human being than he is already perceived as. In this world where perception is everything, Christopher is what? I’ve heard he thinks he’s powerful, influential, intellectual, but by what metric? Powerful? Influential? Intellectual? Christopher is a coward who blocks people on Twitter and blocks the phone number of the person he claimed to love for nearly a year, then has a ‘Manifesto’ written for him. Where’s the power here?, that he can hurt someone? Christopher should be giving all of this some second thoughts, as his actions are going to come back to haunt him with the force of an explosion. It’s also been said that his parents will come and get the band, bring them on, I would look forward to that, they would be exposed to a lot of information about their son. Aaron and Levi are still planning on paying them a visit with the band’s legal representative. I would slink away in embarrassment if my father was named in ProPublica as a chief supplier of opiates. Christopher brought all the controversy to this band, there is no other way he can spin it. There is a reason people speak well of Shawn and the other members of this band, they are thoughtful, compassionate, and giving individuals, something Christopher took advantage of knowingly, hopefully he can explain his wanton mental behavior before an arresting officer asks him. Christopher Reyher’s ‘Manifesto’ says he’s sorry, though this is not to be believed, as it blames Shawn for the way Christopher has felt about him, but more importantly, Christopher was caught in the lie of using his brother’s name, when he blocked Shawn, just hours before Christopher was expressing his love for him. It would seem Christopher has a problem with misplacing blame. I hope never to cross his path, I hope he never shows up in NYC, he wouldn’t have a pleasant experience. Christopher not only owes Shawn a better explanation, as well as the band, (who currently want him arrested), than a text message ‘Manifesto’. And we’re going to see that he gets it. Aaron will exact this one way or the other, he has even posted the emails he has sent Christopher as a matter of public record. All of this time Christopher P Reyher is not blocked from his website HERE.
As for the people who have asked about Krista Kumpf, we know virtually nothing about her, however Daniel Lukas does, he describes her as vulgar, and a woman who preys on young men through the internet. Certainly someone I couldn’t introduce my mother to, although perhaps Christopher can introduce her to his family, they are Floridians after all, (I was there 2 years ago for a print shoot, oh my, home of the uncouth). In a compare and contrast, my mother loves Shawn, if she were to meet Krista Kumpf, she would be escorted out of the house, with my mother severely confused as to how a woman her thirties had only the ambition of preying on young men, apparently gay young men, if we are to account for Christopher’s severe denial. From what I understand, it is unlikely that Christopher’s family is not concerned about what Christopher does as Aaron has pointed out, due to some incidents within that family where there is apparently no discipline. Perhaps Aaron is correct when he mentioned to me that Christopher needed “Empathy Lessons”, as he certainly has none. Everyone in Shawn’s life warned him about Christopher, and in turn Christopher defended himself that he loved Shawn, telling both Aaron and Levi he wasn’t an “Elaborate Game”, it turns out that he likely is, or is so in denial he can’t cope, so he destroys. We want to make sure Shawn is quarantined from Christopher, wherever Shawn is, he is missing. Unlike Christopher P Reyher, we miss him, we love him, we are very concerned.
Christopher’s ‘Manifesto’ does state that it is expected to be seen on this website, then ironically asks for it not to be, therefor the logic prevails that someone wants Christopher’s ‘Manifesto’ on this website. However, Christopher is aware that he has a percentage of ownership of this website, so he is not as helpless as it is claimed here. Whoever wrote that ‘Manifesto’ wants it to be seen, even though it is contradictory, and is factually incorrect from the events that occurred over the last year, and blames Shawn for the entire thing happening, when Christopher pursued Shawn. We were told that Christopher would try to turn this all around on Shawn, good luck with that. Christopher is responsible for whatever happens to Shawn, the problem with that is that Christopher has a track record of irresponsible behavior.
FilmsCrewBand will not be appearing at The Mondo Fest (formerly CMJ Music Showcase) this year because of these events
I apologize for not being able to give an Aaron style update, embedded with philosophy, or a Shawn style update being enigmatic, I am on as their spokesperson, with a vague press release of activities. I am proud to know the people in this band, Shawn has had a profound affect on my life, I owe him so much. So does the ungrateful Christopher.
