Subject:The Dolls....
Time:11:39 am
Current Mood:pensivepensive
I stumbled upon this website through the Closet and Hate Mail section of the Dolls website and found some of the entries both in the Hate Mail section and on this website interesting enough to provide responses.
The Dolls are not named after the family from Flowers In The Attic. The family name was Dollanganger. For further proof you can check out the family tree at: http://www.completevca.com/lib_doll_tree.shtml
If you don't like the Dolls because of a personal relationship with the members (Amanda and Brian) then that's cool, but does it really matter to the rest of the population? Are we ever going to be able to sit down and actually talk to A or B? Fans represent a liking to the music, not necessarily the people making it.
Anyone who doesn't like the Dolls because Amanda doesn't shave her armpits is just being petty. Although I'm sure you have the world's greatest hygiene. If I believed there was a hell I would agree with the person who posted stating you were going there.
A lot of people have also posted that the meanings behind songs are bizarre, weird, or sending the wrong message. To this I say, there are a lot of lyrics out there that are questionable. If you don't like the lyrics to a song, it's quite simple, don't listen to it. As far as Amanda and Brian censoring what they say because of who might listen to their music, it isn't Amanda and Brian's responsibility to make sure vulnerable young people don't hear their music, it's the parents or caregivers of said young people. Didn't we learn anything from Eminem a few years ago?
I have to agree with the person who stated that the ad hominem argument should be defunct. Attacking the people who listen to the Dolls is not a reason to not like the Dolls. If you just don't dig the Dolls music, that's cool, but telling people who do that they have nothing better to do than make entries on this website or that they are bitches or mutant or rabid, is just ridiculous.
What happened to spell-check? If you are going to post where a lot of other people are going to read it (and you want to be taken seriously) you might want to either re-read your post for spelling and grammar mistakes or use smaller words that are easier to spell. These websites might be helpful http://www.m-w.com or http://www.dictionary.com. There is also a nifty little button at the bottom of this page you can click on to do the spell checking for you! Amazing!
As for the police issues that Brian has or has not been involved with, again I refer you to Eminem and others that also have police records of some sort. Did everyone stop listening to R. Kelly? How about watching Kobe play ball? Just something to think about.
Finally, I'd like to say that if you've read this far, thank you. I like the Dolls music, they put on an awesome live show, and I'll continue to be a Dolls fan regardless of what I read about them. Their personal lives intrigue me less than the anticipation of what the new album will hold in store for me.

I can see how you would feel that way. I guess I have some sort of truth complex. In the spirit of freedom of speech, I say, hate on!

truth? you mean like the truth that ZOMG there might actually be some people who legitimately dislike the dresden dolls and are really sick of hearing their fans prattle on and on about how deep and wonderful they are?

according to one of your "helpful" links, the first definition of "prattle" is "prate," meaning "to talk long and idly."

yup, you prattled.

Yeah but... everyone has bands that they gush over and everyone has bands that they hate hearing people talk about. It's fine to dislike them, I really hate people who say things like "You like/dislike such and such band/! You are a retarded monkey with no musical taste whatsoever".

I dunno... I stumbled upon this community and while it's entertaining, i can't seem to think that it's a bit pointless. I'm not a hippie but, shit, wasting all this energy saying how much you hate something seems like a waste of time. Why not talk about shit you like?

in "Flowers In The Attic" it was said that the Dollanganger children were referred to as "The Dresden Dolls" because of their blonde hair & blue eyes.

apart from that i like your post.

love a fellow dolls fan

I would like to point out that the majority of spelling and grammar errors have been perpetrated by the Dresden Dolls fans, not all of us whiny, pathetic, haters. The post we are all commenting on is unclear about whether the spell-check advice is aimed at all, or just at us haters. I'm in full support of demonstrating literacy!
