This is funny...

So, I had to review the Motley Crue concert Wed. night. It was their big reunion tour with all the original members, etc., and they were filming a live DVD, too. Their singer, Vince Neil, absolutely sucked. Here's the review I wrote:

And here's some e-mail I've received:  
(subject line reads verbatim: "Vice makes ya Wince")  
Dear John,  
I read your article on motley Cue on Thursday and I was VERY VERY upset about what you wrote about them. Just because you don't like them doesn't mean you trash them. Dopey sing along, Cheesy medley, and others have me and other fans who went to the show very angry with you. Just because there where girls who like to show off their breast doesn't mean they where strippers. So what some girls dressed like strippers who cares they dress how they want to, and if they are, so what strippers can't go to a concert?  
I can't even believe you are a music review for a paper, your so byassed about ROCK music that comes to town. I have read other things that you wrote and everyone that was a rock group that came to town, you had nothing but bad things to write about them. So either find someone that likes that kind of music and knows how to write a story or don't write about ROCK music. If I didn't go to the Crue concert, I might have been a little nicer about it but I went and thought it was a great show. So you know where you can put the story you wrote.  
another - this is the good one:  
All i can say is you must not listen to rock music or u must be a opera singer cuz u look like a nerd anyway as far as all your cut downs about vince neil i think its a bunch of bs i thought he performed pretty damn good and i wasnt a drunken fan cuz i dont drink at concerts and obviously your full of bs anyway so if u dont like the music dont even bother going to do a story cuz i personally think u suck as a news person u need to find a new line of work. and i hope u get flooded with calls and emails telling you how bad u suck.  
PS go sing some opera music

I like this from the Blabbermouth site:  
"It's always funny when these mid-sized-town newspapers send out some clown who just covered the home & garden show to review a rock band. These reviews reek of the envy of a guy who probably had dreams of writing the great American novel before his lack of ability forced him into some 9 to 5 necktie job. No meaning or credibility whatsoever."  
Whatever. I love how these jokers must think you don't like any kind of metal or rock at all. And this pervasive idea that you have to LIKE the band in the first place or you have no business writing about them. In any case, it looked like a lot of the readers on there agreed with you.  
But that second letter of yours looks like it was written by a three-year-old.

"I can't even believe you are a music review for a paper, your so byassed about ROCK music that comes to town."  
And here I would have assumed Motley Crue fans were intellectually challenged. Clearly, some of these people have a real flair for the English language.

Byassed - i luv it cuz it is so sweet cuz i think he meant to write it that way cuz it is so sweet i think how could it be a mistake cuz it would be bs then.  
Swerb - your job is sweet until the peanut gallery chimes in. Man, do you have to read all this shite? I realize that everyone thinks they are the best critic. That crap about being small-town is kinda low. How is it living in a smaller town means you have not reached your full potential or destiny? Fuck, If I made it big and famous, making grips of dollars, I would be in a very small town called Heissville - Population 1 and 1,000 strippers (female of course!)
