Is it okay to love both of them, or should one have to choose?  I'm starting to get curious about my own moral and logical consistency relating to my immense respect and appreciation for  Brian  May on one hand, and my gleeful enjoyment of the often wickedly clever satire pumped out by Dr. Brian the Wise on the other...

Anybody have thoughts?

It is quite funny in the way that a really annoying joke makes you laugh but you can't help it.  I just looked at it and yes hardeharhar - still a bit stalkery though as it mirrors Brian news and stuff.

I love both.  I know Dr Bri the Wise is really upsetting the real Brian, and i can see why, but it is funny.  I would hate if anyone did that to me if i was famous, but at the same time, it is also good to laugh, and take life less seriously at times.  :)

Is it stalkery or is it the ultimate inside joke?  I tend to think the latter.  The irony is that you have to rather slavishly and lovingly follow Brian's site to get some of it at all because there's much that is quite subtle. 

I guess I can't quite figure out if there is a victim.  If someone is being victimized, it stops being funny as things should be funny.  I don't know if I'm failing in proper empathy, or if Brian is failing in understanding this is simply another side of fame that one must accept with better grace.  Many famous people are agressively satirized on outlets like Saturday Night Live and late night talk shows etc., and few of their targets would dream of trying to denounce or belittle those delivering the comic knocks whatever they might feel privately. Clearly, that's just an invitation to pile on. It seems the folk(s) at Dr. Brian the Wise have gleefully accepted.

I agree gratefulfan - I actually think it's the ultimate compliment.  Plus sometimes old Bri needs to lighten up.
