And so it is…The blog I said I wasn’t going to write is being written. I don’t feel as I have gone back on my word as I feel that due to changes in circumstances a blog is called for.
First of all I want to express my dismay & utter disgust at WP for suspending* Fred. I have read their terms of service and for the life of me I can’t see what Fred is supposed to have done wrong or what excuse WP used to suspend him. Second, I want to once again stress the fact that people like Fred and I must have our own .com (whatch out for AndreaUrbanFox.com soon) therefore bypassing the bs from networks – networks which change their rules as they go along, to suit them and not their customers and without any prior concern or consideration to the fact that it is due to our custom that they are what they are: successful networks.
There I was, minding my own business as usual; writing puns having a dig of the daily news when I am alerted that Mr. Self Destruct tweeted about some girl and yours truly. This time he didn’t say I “suck” or that I am “plump”. Oh noes. This time he calls me a pig. Knowing very well I am Jewish, he surely knew this would or potentially could be more offensive than calling me a c*nt like he did to some other former fan who happened not to kiss his ass. Unfortunately for him and fortunate for me I happen to find pigs rather cute and therefore will not report him for abuse on the grounds of Anti-Semitism.
Like a pig searching for a truffle, I went through all my tweets for the past 2 days to see if it would shed some light on why Mr.Reznor was/is so pissy with me, again. All I found, which is possibly the reason for his anger, is a tweet I sent Veronica Cruz regarding the untimely death of her brother Eric and asking a genuine & legit question: What will happen to the money donated? Will it be returned to the donors or donated to a worthy cause? As far as I am concerned that is a valid question but obviously our “champ” doesn’t agree.
His mantrum therefore got me thinking…Did I hit a nerve? Was I not meant to care where thousands of dollar will end up? Was I raising the issue of this being just a calculated publicity stunt where Reznor was in a win win situation? Why is money still being collect in the name of Eric if he is no longer with us? Furthermore, wtf is he still doing stalking my page and reading my tweets if he hates me so? With my mind racing with questions, answers started to materialize…
I had indeed hit a nerve. No one is meant to question Reznor`s decisions, no matter how ill advised or misguided those decisions might be. His involvement with the Eric campaign was far from altruistic. He knew it was a win win situation because had Eric survived Reznor would be hailed as his savior, the one who stepped in, publicized and helped raise almost 1 million dollars to save Eric’s life. He also knew if Eric died, which he did I`m sorry to say, Reznor would get the sympathy from his brown nosing fans as well as the so called “Eric army”. He knew that! Don’t you be fooled! And if you believe he is that good altruistic soul, that this was no a calculated move, you are doing him a discredit and undermining his intelligence therefore going against him and opening yourself up for his nonse & abuse.
As for why Reznor & trophy geisha still read my tweets I have this explanation: He reads them because they are fun & informative. I tweet/blog about celebs based on information which is publicly available or, in case of my gig reviews, I was actually there so I’m tweeting/blogging about my own views based on my own experience. As for why his trollop of a fiancé reads my tweets, I’m at a slight loss. I mean, my material is sharp, witty, sarcastic…all of which requires a certain level of intelligence to understand and IMHO I don’t think she is the “sharpest tool in the box” or the “brightest light in the harbour”. This, again, is my opinion which is based on what I have seen of her public displays of stereotypical Californian flakey air-head with some major issues, aside from grammar that is 😉
Moving on. This blog wouldn’t be complete without me mentioned a few of Reznor`s latest foot-in-mouth Twitter shortcomings after announcing he was quitting his “social network experiment“. Doh! 1 – How can we not give him credit for, in front of a German crowd at Hurricane Festival, implying Die Arzte music is shit compared to NIN? Had he forgotten he was talking about one of the most popular & loved German rock bands of the past 20yrs or so? Doh! 2 – Not content with offending the Germans alone, our “hero” goes and tweets on the 29th of June at 3.11pm that and I quote “I’ve been spending time in the “real world” and it’s actually pretty great (even in Europe!)”. What an ass clown! Doh! 3 – On July 3rd at 9.52pm he tweets the mother of all ignorant tweets. I quote “11PM, still light out, driving to Roskilde to play at 1AM. Weird” I did LOL at that because the poor red-neck is touring Scandinavia, notorious for it’s “midnight sun” and either fails to acknowledge it or is simply really that ignorant that he didn’t know about this. Doh! 4 – On July 6th at 2.29pm he posted “Weird- just saw a European WITHOUT a cigarette.” I’d say that could potentially be offensive for the millions of Europeans who don’t smoke but that is not the reason why I brought this up. The reason is: who is he to criticize smokers when his own bit on the side is a smoker herself? Who is he to criticize Europeans when he comes from a country which gave the world, amongst many other offerings, the big tobacco giants? Someone replied to his nonse at the time with the following “Weird – just saw a Californian WITHOUT a spray tan”…most appropriate reply, methinks. Doh! 5 – Yet unsatisfied with the non stop public display of ignorance, offending EU nations & crapping on an entire continent, His Holiness goes and gives us this unprovoked attack on yet another EU country. I quote – @davenavarro6767 said “Just arrived in Poland” @trent_reznor replied @davenavarro6767 “Sorry to hear that.” I feel sorry for Navarro (and all the ace NIN musicians) for having to put up with this douche and having to turn a blind eye to the fact that Reznor is dragging them all into a mess which isn’t theirs in the first place.
So, there it is. After Doh 5 we know what happened. Someone is called a whore, I’m called a pig, NIN psychofans go on the rampage, a certain level of attention is diverted from Michael Jackson’s memorial (which was ongoing at that time), and bang! More NIN dates announced….Yeah, that wasn’t calculated either….. And as for my rebuff to Fatznor for calling me a pig, I know it`s just another one of his whines besides, let`s be honest here, he has been obsessed with pigs his entire career 😉 I just seem to be his latest obsession….Welcome back to social networking!
Thank you all for reading.
