KRAKEN OPUS: Welcome back Karl Fowler

It's a new year and I want to take this opportunity to welcome back an old (cough) friend to my blog....

Karl Fowler.

Yep.  The one and only.

Seems he had some time yesterday to pay us a visit.  Perhaps his time would be better utilized by ensuring his customers receive the items in which they paid for instead of taking time to read my blog.

Here's a few projects that should be on his "To Do" list:

The following are in date order by project:

1.  Reimburse Frank Parker the outstanding monies owed him for the order you placed for custom made Opus Bookstands.  If this went to court, I suspect you would be in breach of contract and also subject to penalties or damages.

2.  Reimburse approximately 100 customers (or more) the $2,100.oo each they paid for the Prince 21 Nights Opus which begain April 2009.  I suspect if this went to court, Karl would also owe these customers interest on their money back to April 2009.  Perhaps even penalties or damages.

3.  Arrange with Sony or MJ's Estate the delivery of the outstanding The Official Michael Jackson Opus that were purchased beginning in August 2009 since your site is showing "Sold Out" stock.  Your committment to me was in March 2010 to have all deliveries resolved in 10-14 days.  Clearly, that committment (while reduced from outstanding Opus numbers in March) has not been met.

3b.  Facilitate the precendence your company set for all MJ Opus customers who purchased the MJ Opus through Ticketmaster or Kraken Opus and will never receive the falsely advertised Opus Augmented Reality technology, by making a $20 donation for EACH customer to either a charity of their chosing OR to the same original organization, SaveJapanDolphins.org Using pre-order figures of 20,000 sold by early December 2009, this would be a minimum of $400,000.oo USD.  Both issues of 3 and 3b, if they were to proceed in court, would leave the customer possibly due interest, damages, and fines/penalties lodged against Kraken Media Group (aka Kraken Opus, Opus Media Group, et al). 

4.  Promptly audit and address the outstanding MLB Opus deliveries which are outstanding.  To date one customer has attempted to contact Kraken Opus via email AND phone, with silence returned on both accounts.  They have now received a more direct means of communication with your company from me and we are all awaiting to hear the outcome.  Of course, as a backup, I have provided them with additional contact information for assistance from the Major League Baseball (MLB) head offices.  In the meantime I will be searching for other MLB customer who still have not received their PRE-ordered MLB Opus. 

So instead of worrying about what is being posted here about yourself, let's get down to business Karl, and get these issues resolved.  While I am not the law, I do know that each of these groups above have the law on their side and collectively paint a very disturbing pattern.  You may be able to fool some people, but not those of us you have left in your wake.  It is amazing how many people (customers and former business associates alike) find my blog and send information my way.  You're not a very liked person Karl.  That's sad.  Your original vision was outstanding.  Too bad you decided to squander it away.

But Karl, I'm not going away any time soon.  In fact, I just dug my heels in deeper.

Marco............

  1. What about the unseen footage promised with the MJ Opus? First it was a special card that would activate, then it was to be a special website. I never heard anything...

  5. Welcome back, Karl!

    I sincerely hope that this is the year you will make good on all your promises, but I know better than to hold my breath waiting.

    It's nice that you took the time to visit Cali's blog.... would be nicer if you used that time to resolve some of the above issues instead.... but glad you have the extra time on your hands to pop in for a visit.

    And.. in honour of your visit... here is the song that we dedicated to you a few months ago!

  7. Thanks Cali
    No sign of a reply yet from Kraken regarding the MLB Opus deliveries. I only wish I had found this website before I order an Opus from these guys. So let’s see who the first is to e-mail me back Kraken Opus or MLB Head Office.
    Keep up the good work!!

  9. *starts the morning listening to the IACOP's selected theme song for the week*

    Anon, you're very welcome and yes-- should be interesting to see who replies first. Something tells me it might be MLB.

    LPPC... perhaps next week's selection could be Smooth Criminal. We'll have to come up with a topic that will "suit" the "crime". *giggles*

    Much L.O.V.E. to all,
    Cali

  10. Sweden says helo Karl. We still haven't forgot all the promises you made about the opus.

  11. The MLB Opus is the most definitive sports publication ever produced! it's sensational...every customer that I've spoken to is thrilled and incredibly satisfied. The staff at MLB Opus work 24/7 - with a goal to make sure that every customer is pleased with their purchase and the lines of communication are wide open. Operations, administration and marketing & sales are executed entirely different than the MJ venture. I highly advise customers and vendors to call Mark Skelly, the Executive Producer, of the Official Major League Baseball Opus, with any concerns, ideas or suggestion. they will be addressed immediately.

    WOW!!!I wish i could say that for the MJ Opus too,IF its true!
    We were told that same stuff at the beginning of our purchase but many lies were exposed in the way.Many things that our eyes never saw like the opus augmented reality and even worse some mj fans never saw that "sensational" book till this day.
    I hope everything goes well dear Anonymous with the MLB opus but surely the MJ Opus situation is really fucked up by Kraken.(why do i have a feeling that you already know about that? ;))And you should take a notice of that so you won't make the same mistakes (lies)as mr KF did!

  16. I can vouch for Mark Skelly's helpfullness on getting the MLB Opus delivered. I ordered it on or about 7/10/2010. As of December 1st, I still had not received it. It was supposed to ship in October and take no more than 6 weeks to arrive. I repeatedly emailed Kraken, including Karl fowler, with no answer. In early December I contacted Mr. Skelly via email explaining my frustration. He emailed me back immediately and also phoned me. within a week I had my copy of the MLB Opus and it is magnificent!! I can't vouch for the rest of the company, but i can say Mark skelly is a really nice guy and displays outstanding customer service!!

  17. Marco, please don't mention anything about the MLB Opus. your information is inaccurate and you're speaking out of your ass. My name is Mark Skelly, and i head the MLB Opus project and have from day one. I'm also President of Opus Americas. There are no dissatisfied MLB Opus customer. if any MLB Opus customer had a concern or discrepancy it would be taken care of immediately. i would fly on a plane to my customer's residence and hand deliver their MLB Opus - and than take them to meet their favorite player. You loose all credibly when you throw the MLB Opus into the mix when you try to blast Fowler. Call me and quit hiding behind your computer. if you want to talk about morals and ethics, I'll take you on anytime. do your homework and quit being a lazy ass potato chip eating couch rat.
