Cringe Corner: The Audiowave Dasher's Years of Harassment Megapost by


It's a new year and once again, the easily triggered wannabe Brony Musician known as AudioWave Dasher / Ben Jackson / TheGreatTailz / Aeons And Airwaves is back again on his campaign of harassment.
Who the hell is this guy?

Ben Jackson, a 41 year old man based out of Orlando, Florida is a guitarist going by many different fandom names, namely AudioWave Dasher (among others) with a huge ego problem and horrible guitar sound quality who essentially thinks his shit does not stink and will not hear a word against it. He first came to our attention around August 2015, when he spammed various Facebook groups to promote his music, and more importantly, after having his incessant requests denied by them, asking the people there to send emails to Equestria Daily, wanting to "bad mouth them in a positive manner" so that they will supposedly give new artists a chance at the spotlight.


Holding himself as a professional musician and praising guitar playing above all other instruments, it's a bit odd that a good chunk of his recordings and so-called original songs are not actually played on a guitar, rather recorded instead via Guitar Pro 3, a computer program that produces MIDI tracks meant for tabs and for guitarists to play along to as practice. Instead, he uses those MIDI tracks as completed songs, in a claim that once he manages to harass other musicians into doing a collaberation with him for the drum, bass and vocal tracks, he will then re-record it.


Going through his other channels, it's obvious he has done the same. As such, when other people find his music, they tend to leave advice for him in the comments because his tone is pretty awful. However, Ben is not the type of person to take constructive criticism from anyone, because, in his own words, that he has 23 some-odd years of experience playing the guitar, to take criticism from someone who is not a musician is outright laughable and ridiculous. In other words, he claims a person must be able to produce music in a much better fashion than him in order to give him advice. Naturally, what he considers better is entirely subjective, and he has been seen flying off the handle at other musicians who create much better sounding music.



And so for the next few years we diligently covered the tales of Ben as he sent spam to many people in the MLP community in a bid for them to broadcast his music, his self-described way of self promotion, and, should they refuse to play his music due to its terrible quality and his piss poor attitude, pester them with emails and other correspondence chock full of verbal abuse. Enter Stallionslaughter, a much better musician than Ben, who tried to give him advice on how he could improve himself and his guitar sound via a Youtube video. Ben, not wanting his precious self-image ruined by someone he viewed beneath him, proceeded to hound Stallionslaughter's Youtube channel with abusive comments and outright copypasta, which then prompted Stallion, as a joke, to make a deathcore song with lyrics comprised of the comments Ben left behind.


Brutal. However after that whole fiasco, we did not hear from Ben for the entirety of 2017, until he appeared recently, circa January 2018, when he had apparently during that time roped Brony Musician 4EverfreeBrony into doing a collab with him, which takes us to the present.

What has he done now?


Stallion for his part, tried to resolve the situation by bringing all parties involved into a call and sort things out. What happened afterward was a whole night's worth of burning, not unlike our very own sun.






And then he flipped out. From claiming he's a Navy Seal and threatening bodily harm...




To making racial slurs...




To making even more threats...




When called out on buying said subs, his response was just as predictable: denial.






No real surprise there.

After days of posting on Twitter about all the stuff AWD has said, CrusaderPony decided to set up a petition to warn all MLP conventions about Ben Jackson attending conventions, and suggested he he prematurely banned. The petition was almost a success, acheiving somewhere around 450~ signatures before it was, predictably, took down by Ben, as he report bombed it to death, and bragged about it later over Twitter. 










During this time, Ben also decided to target Stallionslaughter directly, doing the unforgivable, actually managing to get him fired from his job working at a car dealership, by spamming them with false reviews and emails, that they decided the best course of action was to "let him go". Unfortunately, this had the effect of having Stallion lose his house due to barely being above water financially, and he ended up losing his house. 

The communities response was overwhelming, as a GoFundMe was set up with the goal of $1,000 to get Stallion back on his feet. Of course, Ben couldn't leave well enough alone, and during BABScon weekend it was taken down temporarily due to spam reports from him. In other words, not being content with getting Stallion fired, he wanted to make sure he was kicked while he was down. Luckily, the GFM was able to be restored, and it overshot its goal threefold.


A warning to the rest of the fandom, if you see Ben Jackson / Audiowave Dasher / Aeons and Airwaves / Thegreattailz, or whatever nickname he is going under, our suggestion is to preemptively block him and kick him out from any groups he joins. In order to market himself, as he says in his own words, he especially seeks out Facebook groups who might not otherwise be informed of his doings.

Update: 20.04.2018
He has now contacted Youtube's own CEO over Twitter in an attempt to get the aforementioned videos, the ones of him digging his own grave by showing the world how much of a prick he is, taken down. 



In addition, he is trying now to reach the moral high ground by attempting to compare Stallionslaughter to a gore loving pedo, due to the artwork he makes. 






We'll keep updating the article as the story progresses.

  3. This scum sucking piece of shit needs to be locked up. He needs to have his life ruined.

    Death is too easy for you, Ben Jackson. You deserve to be force-fed a bag of rusty nails for what you've done. And then, once you're done shitting out those nails, you should be gang raped like the bitch you are.

    What goes around, comes around, you disgusting excuse for a human being. You'd better hope that you don't wake up one morning to find out the FBI wants to speak with you. It'd be at least as funny watching you get accused of something that would ruin your life as you probably thought it was to do such a thing to someone else. The only difference, Ben, is that there are people capable of doing substantially more damage to you.

    Watch your back, Ben. We sure are.

    (Emphasis on the "main" of course since he has multiple.)

  5. 41 years old, and he never grew up. Actually, that's mean of me to say, I'm sorry. Children are smarter and better behaved than this.

  6. Drama is good and all, but you did not write anything about any of the NEW SHOW EPISODES.

    1. This is Horse News. If you want articles about the new episodes, I'm afraid you're in the wrong place. Horse News does drama and little else.

    3. Horse News did some pretty extensive coverage of episodes from seasons 4-6. Then, they stopped.

  11. This crap is all nonsense, cheap fake click bait journalism, and shock value. The real Audiowave Dasher's story can be found on youtube where he discredits about 90% of this GARBAGE. I suggest if you really are attracted to drama then go listen to his side of the story. Hes done philanthropology work, childrens charities, and most of all writes stuff thats in line with Hasbro's vision. I'd take one word of his over 100 from this junk drama site

  12. His name is too hard to remember, I'll call him "Florida Man".
