Pleasant vs. Honest

Everyone knows the truth hurts. What is true is not always what we want to hear, but the truth is the truth. I'd rather someone be honest with me than to just tell me what they think I want to hear. I cannot believe how many INXS fans out there do not want to see the new movie about INXS because they say Michael was portrayed in a distasteful way. Well, I always say "Maybe it's the truth?" I don't know, I never lived with Michael. But the movie was supervised by Tim Farriss and Chris Murphy, and these two people spent more time with Michael than anyone else. I have to take what was created in that movie as the gospel. Well, most of it anyways. Rockstars are usually edgy, and Michael had some hardships in his life I know that. I also know what hardships can do to a person. But people are afraid for Lily's sake. They don't think Michael should ever be portrayed that honestly because it may hurt Lily's vision of her father.

Well, there is no denying her father had a hard life. He was battling depression. But just because we don't want to know the truth about Michael does not mean it should remain hidden. I personally do not care what bad shit Michael did! I still love him. He could have been a hatchet murderer behind the scenes and I still wouldn't care. I love Michael for his grace and beauty, I love him for the inspiring words he wrote and sang to the world. I love him for his comforting voice which has cheered me up out of bad days many times in the past. That is why I love Michael. It's like Dian Fossey. I am a great admirer of her's, always have been. Always will be. I don't care about how she treated poachers. Some people say she went too far, that she mistreated everyone around her. I don't care about that at all. I love Dian Fossey for her accomplishments. She was like a pioneer in wildlife conservation. I love her for that! I know she burned down villager's houses, I know she used to whip poachers in the genitals with stinging nettles. I know all about her shooting the cattle of local herdsmen. But I don't care about none of that. She is still my hero because she single-handedly saved the mountain gorillas from extinction.

Ya know, I think Dian Fossey is the main reason why I was so tolerant with Patti! LOL! I put up with a lot of Patti's shit in the days I lived there, and I still was kind and respectful with her. I think deep inside I was thinking which one would be worse to live with? Patti or Dian Fossey? LOL! Probably Dian Fossey, and I love her to death! There was a difference though. Dian Fossey loved kids and animals, and a person with that kind of morale cannot be all bad. Patti did not like kids, and was fanatical about rescuing animals from shelters as opposed to breeding. Besides that, she was shallow. She thought of nobody but herself. So, there was NO good whatsoever in Patti.

Same thoughts about Michael Hutchence. I don't care what he did. I don't care if he tried to punch Timmy in the face, I don't care about the bad shit he did portrayed in the movie, whether it was the gospel truth or not. I'll always love Michael, no matter what. He always has been, still is, and always will be my most favorite lead singer of all time! To the people who did not want to see the movie because they thought it was in bad taste, all I have to say is get over it! I got nothing against these people personally, but Michael's life was not all roses and unicorns. No one's is. We all have our ups and downs. We all have our good points and bad points. I can overlook them. If I can, then anyone can. *smiles*

I look at Michael's life and I think mine was not too far off from his. I love the movie, Never Tear Us Apart. I think Luke Arnold did a fine job of portraying Michael! Shoot! If I were 20 years younger, I would have fallen in love with that man!! He has a nice ass!! But he's only 30 years old (born in 1984-- a great year BTW!) But he's too young for me. Another complaint I typically hear is people complaining because Luke looked nothing like Michael. Well, I found a pic not too long ago where he does. I still think he did a fine job! Other people were giving their ideas about who would have been great to play the part of Michael. Someone suggested some actor named Gavin Rossdale. But he's OLD!! He may have been great to play the part of Michael as an older man, but not as a young teenager, when his career as a singer got started. Another suggested a guy named Aiden Turner, but he looks far too mean!! And he's kinda ugly too!

Michael Hutchence had this look on his face, that was halfway between dangerous and innocent. That is very hard to mimic! That's what I like about Luke Arnold playing the part of Michael. He almost has that look. There will NEVER be another Michael Hutchence!! Not even among modern actors. Even his own brother Rhett doesn't look anything like him!! Michael was a one of a kind! Finding someone who looks exactly like him is impossible. Luke Arnold came close, but could not go all the way. No one ever will. So if other INXS fans are looking for an actor who is going to look exactly like Michael, with his voice, they are going to be very hard-pressed. There just isn't another Michael out there, and never will be.

Well, in personal news, I am going to OR this weekend. I am leaving here on the 5th, and have to be there by the 8th. I am giving a little leeway for any trouble that might occur. But I have a slew of people praying for me. It's kinda bittersweet because I am going to have to leave Vegas with my sister. I need to concentrate on finding an apartment, and the very last thing I need to worry about right now is if that apartment will allow pets. It's only for a year, and Vegas will at least be with family. Once I've lived there for a year, I can move to a more pet-friendly area in OR and get Vegas back. But looking on the NW OR coast, it's been nearly impossible to find a pet-friendly place. I don't know why it is! NW OR is so not pet friendly!! I don't know what I am going to do during that year without a booby to cuddle!! I guess my favorite guys of INXS will have to be my surrogate "pets". LOL!
