I'm kind of afraid to post this, in case it's already been posted... but... what on earth is this site about?!?!?

You should look around the site. I have never seen anything so strange. She is the most delusional person I have ever seen.

How did you discover that site anyway??

Apparently it has been discussed before. Just enter "sylv" (the name of the lunatic who wrote the book) in search and it pulls up a few threads.

Without clicking the link, and going by this description alone, is this one of Arlene's websites?

The author is probably for real. But they're also probably wrong.

I can't be fucked reading the link by the way.

No, I'm afraid not. Its too bizarre and complicated to explain. But its entertaining, although that's clearly not the author's intention.

It's satire. I think everyone should do it, because then the satire becomes funnier.

Or maybe I'm a trend-setter. Either way, the comic appeal of it is starting to drop.

I disagree....as a matter of fact, I'm contemplating changing to "jpoopford79".

As I said, go for it. If it's just me, then it's not quite as funny; if more people do it, it becomes funnier.

She is delusional, you're absolutely right. Scary, too, I might add.

I wish I knew how I found the site - or maybe I don't. I was just browsing and following links from various pages and then there it was - the most absurd take on Queen, Freddie, etc, I'd ever seen.

Thanks for that. I searched under "Innuendoes" but didn't think to search her name.

(btw - did anyone have trouble accessing this board last night? I tried to reply here several times but couldn't. Kept getting a strange error page. Just me?)

This was already discussed before, and is strange!

But the morbid side of it is that i really think that she (the author) really believes in what she describes. And we have to guive some credit to her:- She took every song from the Queen and Solo cathalogue and invented a story that can be coherent if you tend to follow her point of view!

Saddly, i don`t have the capacity to follow her story, but hey, let`s ask Peter Jackson if he wants to film the Queen bio based on this book:

It would beat "Lord Of The Rings" trilogy easily!!

Take care

It's called schtizophrenia, and a little something called word salad, where words or phrases that have little in common are somehow threaded together to make sense to the writer. No-one else of course can understand this. I doubt it's a joke, just some poor bugger who has gone off his / her meds

Yeah. I think you're right. She seems to truly believe all that she's saying - though I can't make sense of it. And yet, she does refer to it all as 'a riddle'. So, is she aware that she's not making sense or isn't she? And should we care?

I guess I care because I feel like she's making a mockery of the man and the music. But then, if she really believes it all, I should pass her my sympathy, not my anger.

<shrugs> What. Ever.

I don't know, but read this...

http://homepages.enterprise.net/sylv/Answer_Me_Freddie28.HTM

She says something about "Early sex" with a person who is the lead vocalist of the band and has black hair and brown eyes.

She's an idiot.

I read that yesterday. Absolutely bizarre. I love the question posed to her, there though -
"I think with your history, it's very plain that you have some very serious mental problems, you should save all your proceeds from the book and go and see a good doctor. I read the book and it's product of a fantastic imagination. It came across to me that your bad ghost could be your father. Is he the one that raped you?"
