Rant Of The Day THIS RANT 18/11/97

Rant Of The Day is where I get to mouth off about whatever I feel like for however long I like. Theoretically, I'll update my whinge/opinion piece every weekday; in practice, maybe not so often.

Weird mail, Gusworld style

For a site that's basically the rantings of a sicko cynic journo and a few acquaintances, Gusworld is certainly getting its fair share of publicity and correspondence these days. The most popular area for writeups seems to be Mighty Morphin' Dannii Minogue, which featured in the Icon section of the Sydney Morning Herald last Saturday. This is what they wrote:

Totally bizarre. It's hard to tell whether it's a hate site or a fan site, though if it's the latter, the fan, Angus Kidman, has a weird way of showing it. It shows a constantly morphing picture of Dannii in a wedding outfit, accompanied by equally weird short stories in which Dannii turns into a "super-heroine" at night and fights burglars and assorted villains.

True, I think they could have mentioned more of the violence, but overall, not a bad summary.

Somewhat less pleasing was the following email, which I got for no obvious reason at all:

You are the ugliest, fattest most discusting piece of bloated whale shit I have ever seen.
You are so ugly that the comb you shove up your ass ran away from you. Your wife left you for your dead dog. You're so ugly you should be nutered so you can't have little satan faced kitty raping dog fucking puke licking little son of a bitch shit faced kids.

There's more, but I stopped reading at that point. If the author thinks I'm about to have kids, clearly they don't know me from a bar of soap. And I mean, they call these insults? Whatever happened to the good old days when you could get specifically, individually insulted? Even the late unlamented Missteenca was capable of more than this.

BTW, if you wish to mail abuse to the idiot who sent this, click here.
