I don't mind Brian's interest on astronomy, which I think it's really cool. However, I really think he should create an astronomy section on his site and devote most of the 'Soapbox' to topics related Queen and Brian's musical career.

My English is far away from good, therefore I don't understand most of those specific astronomy words - it's more easy for me to skip such topics... :)

I kinda like them... His soapbox is pretty much like a blog- one day he writes about Queen, the other about astronomy, than about politics or some tabloids etc... That's the way it is, I guess... Some of his posts bore me to death. The astronomy ones actually don't...

Haven't yet read it, but I've had an ongoing (amateur) interest in astronomy, so when I do get to read his thoughts and musings, it's pretty interesting.

Besides, it's Brian's Soapbox, subtitled "Where I write stuff."

It's his website, he can post what he wants.

I, for one, love the fact that he is multi-dimensional. And it's always great to get his philosophical insights.

Speaking of multi-dimensional ;) ...
I really like this "stereo pictures" thing (Brian keeps posting them all the time). Can you see it too? :)

Exactly - if you don't like it then don't read it or don't visit the site. It's entirely your choice.

I won't complain about what Brian puts on his own website in the same way he hasn't complained about what I put on my website.

It does not bore me because I skip the stuff that I am not interested in. Simple solution ... but it works for me anyway.

Bored? It's not the perfect word, because sometimes I read it and I find it really interesting. But if I didn't know, it would be obviuous that he is an only child. He thinks that his interests are important for all.

Thats a bit of a sweeping statement about one child families isnt it? I personally know plenty of people in that situation and I know that the child concerned doesnt think that their "interests are important to all"

As to the original question, no I dont think his stuff on astronomy is boring. It is, as someone already pointed out it is his "Soapbox, Where I Write Stuff"

Absolutely.

Whoever you are, am I ever happy to see you posting here. You're one of those few people who are slowly making QZ into more of an intellectual place again. Glad to have you here.

Sir GH, thanks for the comments. I'll try to participate, especially when the subject matter hits my hot button.

I wouldn't want anyone to think I'm trying to force my terribly-important-to-all opinions on everyone else, although I'm an only child, but here's my 2 cents.
He's got every right to post about what he feels relevant at the time. At the moment, with the comet stuff, it's astronomy. I remember not too long ago people were getting annoyed that he kept bitching about the tabloid press and going on too much about the musical - seems he can't win.

I guess Brian goes through stages...

First was the musical, then it was the press, then orbs, and now the comet.
