“People think they know all these things about other people, and if you ask them why they think they know that, it’d be hard for them to be convincing!”

 

Thank you Casey, Nathan, Nils & Sweet Adeline for what you did in the past, thank you realexkav for keeping that thing alive when sweetaddy died and thank you everyone who contributed back when this was still a “thread”* on a “message board”**. Oh, and get lost, fiends4es & various other trolls on instagram. You’ll never get it. You may get the “audience” by predating all the elliott pages under the sun and never actually bothering to contribute anything original, you’re still just some pathetic example of that winning mediocrity that’s all around, taking credit for work you’re never willing to do. Fuck you & your likes. Sincerely yours.

 

 

 

I started that “kaleidoscopic story” in 2008 as a way to vicariously voice some things back when sweetaddy would still send any “controversy” to “hell”. I reckoned at the time that it would be much harder to dismiss feelings or opinions expressed by friends, family, or fellow musicians (as opposed to “rabid fans” having “lost their Virgil”, you know…) so that’s how it was born, and exposing subjective feelings and objective facts without being censored was really the original purpose of that “thread”*, even though it was never just about that. But it’s still here, and we’re still there… Elliott’s “official story” has turned more and more unbalanced over the years – just take a look at his wikipedia page. A biased pick of quotes , if there ever was one… Always the same quotes, always the same people talking about him, always the same self-appointed “experts”. There’s a million more stories out there… I want to hear them all.
