Hey everyone
I don't know if any of you guys looked at the latest edition of Mojo magazine recently or not but I was skimming thruogh it this afternoon in the local book store and I found this article which was a interview with Robert Smith of The Cure and there was a question about what he thinks about The Darkness, and his answer was that "HE HATED QUEEN AND WHATEVER THE DID AND HE HATES THE DARKNESS TOO, HE THINKS THE DARKNESS IS JUST A JOKE BAND".
Well when I read that first I tried to be really democratic and admiring his opinion but after few minutes I thuoght to myself, Well Mr. Smith you FUCKING KISS MY ASS, I don't give a F***king shit about you freken band no matter how good do you think you are. You may not be Glam Rock fan or you may not like gay people but you must be fucking stupid to not liking a band like Queen at least a little bit.

what is your idea about this guy?

I don't know The Cure's music that much and I do not intend to insult any The Cure fan in here.

My apologies in advanced


POURIA QUEEN FAN

There was a discussion about this a little while ago.

Resistance is futile. You are now an orb.

*sigh* Oh no... not this again.
Ah well... I'm in a ranting mood, anyway. *lowers head and prepares to charge*

what is your idea about this guy?

My idea about "this guy" is that he is 110% ace :op. OK, so he's probably not the most popular guy on this board at the moment because, in most people's eyes, he has "dissed" Queen. Yes, yes, a cardinal sin, punishable by death... yadda, yadda, yadda. But... whatever. The Cure are my favourite band in this entire universe ever, (Uh... yeah... 'controversial') and as I have stated before, his tastes are totally and utterly irrelevent in that respect.
Musically, I am just completely in love with his ever so perfectly imperfect voice, and his intelligent yet also childish lyrical style. Umm... yeah, I really dig his whole style... the hair <3... Disintegration > most Queen albums (yes, I am fully aware that I may just be hanged, drawn and quartered for that comment)... And he's hotter than hell, goddammit.

You may not be Glam Rock fan

He likes Bowie and he likes T. Rex. So I'm sorry to disappoint you, but it isn't glam he has a problem with...

or you may not like gay people but you must be fucking stupid to not liking a band like Queen at least a little bit.

Accusing someone of homophobia just because they don't like Queen is frankly pathetic. (especially someone who is prone to acting as campy as Robert does (case study: Love Cats video... *sigh*))

I don't see why everyone has got so upset over this, anyway. Why is it necessary for everybody to like Queen? And why are some people just unable to accept it when someone says they don't? Comfort in numbers?
Just because they're not to his tastes, it doesn't make him "wrong". He is just as entitled to say "Queen are bad", as you are to say "Queen are good". I respect his opinion.
And the more Queen fans keep bitchin', the more inclined I am to agree with him... I just kindly request a retraction of claws.

HE THINKS THE DARKNESS IS JUST A JOKE BAND

Pah... I concur.
I've always hated The Darkness, anyways.

*deep breath* So... In closing, whatever his views on the band, I'll still be standing as close to the front of the stage as I can manage when I see The Cure this Friday... *leaps around excitedly*

And... I am currently fearing for my life....

<== I think that may just have been my longest post ever...

Yeah... the Darkness is a joke... And a lame one at that.
