SHUT DOWN THE INTERNET so Demands Elton John

Web rant ... Sir Elton says the internet is destroying music



By SIR ELTON JOHN
August 01, 2007



POP legend Sir Elton John wants the internet CLOSED DOWN.

Never one to keep his opinions to himself, the Rocket Man has waded into cyberspace with all guns blazing.

He claims it is destroying good music, saying: “The internet has stopped people from going out and being with each other, creating stuff.

“Instead they sit at home and make their own records, which is sometimes OK but it doesn’t bode well for long-term artistic vision.

“It’s just a means to an end.

“We’re talking about things that are going to change the world and change the way people listen to music and that’s not going to happen with people blogging on the internet.

“I mean, get out there — communicate.

“Hopefully the next movement in music will tear down the internet.

“Let’s get out in the streets and march and protest instead of sitting at home and blogging.

“I do think it would be an incredible experiment to shut down the whole internet for five years and see what sort of art is produced over that span.

“There’s too much technology available.

“I’m sure, as far as music goes, it would be much more interesting than it is today.”

Multi-millionaire Elton, who turned 60 earlier this year, has admitted in the past that he is a bit behind the times. The Grammy award-winner was once quoted as saying: “I am the biggest technophobe of all time.

“I don’t have a mobile phone or an iPod or anything.

“I am such a Luddite when it comes to making music. All I can do is write at the piano.”

Sales of Elton’s last album The Captain & The Kid were disappointing — it barely shifted 100,000 copies. And in the past Sir Elt has opposed illegal downloading of his music from the net.

But the flamboyant singer has embraced the web in other ways.

The 60th birthday concert Sir Elton played to a 20,000-strong crowd at New York’s Madison Square Garden was streamed live over the internet.

The singer also announced earlier this year that his entire back catalogue of albums would be made available for digital download.





The internet has played a huge role in kick-starting the careers of some of Britain’s best new talent.

Sandi Thom shot to fame after broadcasting webcam concerts from her London basement flat, while both the Arctic Monkeys and Lily Allen acknowledge the part played by the web in their success.

But Elton also complained about the quality of music being released.

He said: “In the early Seventies there were at least ten albums released every week that were fantastic.

“Now you’re lucky to find ten albums a year of that quality.

“And there are more albums released each week now than there were then.”

I guess that’s what Sir Elt would call a net loss . . .

Sir Elton John

I was gone from the Internet for several months and a group site which I had opened for linking pics and such had closed due to inactivity. The computer I had the pic stored on, broken.

There was a certain janderson who posted at glp. His avatar, which is no longer available, looked like a custom avatar of none other than Elton John. It was somewhat troubling, however. Besides a sinister smile (that looked of pure evil), there were a small pair of hands on the legs, that looked to suggest pain and trying to push off. Wish it were available to show you, but I can only describe it.

I once wondered aloud "Does Elton John Post at GLP?" on June 7, 2006, I pointed out the avatar, and some comments made by poster janderson.

janderson's last post was on June 9, 2006.

Inconclusive.

Does Elton John Post at GLP?

Elton John and the pedophile network Zandvoort
Jacqueline de Croÿ 29 Jan 2005 14:35 GMT


The contacts of the mega star Elton John, film producer Russel Mulcahy and guitarist Gerry Laffy under the magnifying glass of Scotland Yard. At the base, Marcel Vervloesem of the Belgian activist association Werkgroep Morkhoven, who has forwarded to the British police the address book of the Belgian child trafficker named Robert Van Der Plancken, where they were consterned to discover Gerry Laffy.

Morkhoven - Scotland Yard have been inquiring several months on Elton Johns' contacts with the film director Russel Mulcahy, famous for his films Hyghlander, Ricochet etc., and of his assistant: the guitarist and film producer Gerry Laffy. At the base, Marcel Vervloesem of the Belgian activist association Werkgroep Morkhoven, who has forwarded to the British police the address book of Robert Van Der Plancken, where they were consterned to discover Gerry Laffy.

Van Der Plancken (photograph on the right), was active in the underworld of child trade and the lover of Gerrit Ulrich: the head of the pedophile network Zandvoort, an international criminal organization that added up a record of 88.539 victims minor of age, including approximately 62.000 photographs of crimes committed upon children.

The British font was naturally intrigued links between the jet set of the show business with this crappy criminal.

Gerry Laffy had teamed with Russell Mulcahy, the latter being considered as a video wizard, in order to produce clips for the mega-stars, of which Elton John.

Elton John (on the left) has acquired an international celebrity in Rock'n'roll during the Seventies and won several gold discs. Becoming extremely rich, he took part in many initiatives of charity, of which for the fight against the AIDS and hepatitis. He had thus met emblematic characters. He realized a very beautiful composition for the burial of Lady Diana, of which he offered the benefits to her charities.

The celebrity of the implied people being so striking, it raises again question on the investigations that have actually been carried out on Zandvoort by the courts of Turnhout and Kennemerland.

According to certain sources, the investigation would have been blocked in Holland by a video found at Ulrich, where figure a certain S., which is related to their royal house.

In Belgium, the justice of Turnhout claims that Marcel Vervloesem is paranoiac and criminal, while the Belgian press affirms that the Zandvoort network carried out to nothing relevant.

Scotland Yard on the contrary, maintains excellent relations with the Werkgroep Morkhoven and does not allow that their investigations are blocked by official meetings between mega-stars and the royal families.

Normal, more especially as these meetings raise of ordinary royal duties and are without relation.

LONDON, England -- Pete Townshend, the legendary guitarist of The Who, has been released from police custody after his arrest on suspicion of possessing indecent images of children.
"I'm very shocked and I hope it's not as bad as it sounds," Elton John said backstage at the American Music Awards presentation in Los Angeles on Monday night, AP reported. "I'm a friend of Pete's. I love Pete, and my thoughts are with him."
[link to www.cnn.com]

LONDON — British gay rights groups are up in arms after a BBC TV host joked that Sir Elton John is sexually aroused by young boys.

The London based group Outrage!, which campaigns for gay rights throughout the United Kingdom, is demanding an apology from the BBC and comedian Dara O’Briain, who was serving as a guest host on last Friday’s quiz show Have I Got News For You.

The comedian began to discuss Elton’s role in taking the film Billy Elliot from screen to stage.

But the activists said they were “horrified” when O'Briain remarked, "Elton sees a little bit of himself in Billy," referring to John having anal sex with the fictional 11-year-old ballet dancer.

"We'll be asking them to ask Mr O'Briain to apologize and an apology from the BBC wouldn't go amiss either,” Outrage! spokesman Brett Lock told Reuters. “It's very odd that a joke of that nature made it past the vetting procedures. The joke was aimed at suggesting any older gay man would naturally have a sexual interest in young boys, and I think that is what is most offensive. We certainly hope that it will come to his attention and perhaps he will be moved to complain himself.”

Re: SHUT DOWN THE INTERNET so Demands Elton John
He's probably a mind-controlled Illuminati pawn, ever since the death of Diana. His last great song was back in 1983. He should stop crying in his loverboy's arms and write some decent songs himself for a change. Shame on him for criticising the bloggers. I've been able to find music I'd never otherwise find or reach through the sharing of some of these great blogs. Floodlit Footprint and Lost In Thyme are a couple of the best ones. That's if you're into rare psychedellic music that has zero value in the commercial world these days. If blog sites like that are destroying music, then I would say to him that mediocrity is destroying the music industry. And I'd know exactly where to point the finger. I downloaded The Captain and the Kid on p2p a coule of years ago. No Goodbye Yellow Brick Road. No Rocket Man. No Candle in the Wind. No Island Girl. Not even a Song For Guy. It was full of pap. Worth zero dollars. I'm sure glad I didn't buy it. Elton John can suck it!

Web rant ... Sir Elton says the internet is destroying music

By SIR ELTON JOHN
August 01, 2007

 Quoting: Pa1N ReDeFiNeD


There's always pr0n. I can't believe he doesn't own an iPod. I'd bet the Pope has an iPod, filled with holy music of course.

I believe Sir Elton has a valid argument. Collaboration is becoming a thing of the past with the modern one man recording studio. In a way, two or more people work synergistically. They critique each other and bring out each other's strengths. Much in the way Sir Elton and Bernie Taupin did creating the duo's timeless rock classics. Let's face it, some of the lyrics in today's music sucks, to put it kindly. Great melodies with lousy lyrics still blows, and vice versa. The songs of yesteryear used to make you think about the meaning of the music and made you use your imagination. Nowadays, it's merely bubblegum for the mind and ears. Imagination need not apply. Rock on Sir Rocketman.

What an idiot. Number 1; Rap is way more popular now than the 70's hmmmm doesn't seem like anyone is writing music but they are rapping. I recall Elton John playing at the grammys with Eminem. Eminem is garbage. How about we shut down rap music for 5 years and lets see if anyone plays an instrument. Who cares if there are one man bands. You think Elton John sits at his piano with 5 other people and wrote Candle In the Wind? NO! This guy is a selfish asshole. I like the ability to not have to go to a producer the record industry sucks. Hey Elton eat my sister vagina fag life.
