Just because a person is an Elton fan, doesn't mean they have good taste. That is the lesson for today.
While roaming the .net for Elton related material, I ran across a blog I have never seen before. At first, I was excited. It looked as though this fan liked Elton in the 70's and had dedicated a blog to the era.
The blog states: "I created this blog for avid fans of Elton John's life and career in the 1970's."
What started out as promising, quickly dissolves into something completely disgusting within minutes. The blogger refers to Elton as fat, ugly, weird and old and says things like 'so-called Elton', implying that Elton isn't really Elton at all post 1979. Like he's an impostor or something. David cops it too, as does the likes of Queen, David Bowie, Lennon and of course, Lady Gaga. Then there is the rantings about how Elton and John Reid were this great couple and it was all ruined by Elton's insecurity (never mind the millions Reid had stolen...).
And as if all the insulting and thickly coated ugly words weren't enough, every picture on the blog is stamped with words saying not to copy, even though many of the photos can be found in seconds on other websites.
He's is right about one thing, he's entitled to his own opinions, it's a free world.
And, so am I. And as a true Elton John fan my opinion is the blog is a disgusting piece of work by someone who must be even more insecure and vile than he thinks Elton is. It's a waste of server space as far as I'm concerned. Pity, he gives no one the chance to voice their opinions, as all commentary options are removed.
Not really surprising though.
