    image.jpeg To the handful of real life friends i have on this message board, the following will not come as a surprise to you - you know how much music means to me.

    While surfing different music related sites on YouTube tonight, I happend to find several videos and documentaries on the life of the great Freddie Mercury. After viewing the making of his final video, i feel strongly compelled to make a few points:

    I don't care that he was gay;
    He was one of the all time greatest performers - i respect and appreciate his talent and art;
    I believe it is wrong to automatically disregard or marginalize those that may be different than you;

    I'm very happily heterosexual - and after i saw the following video, i wish i could give him a hug, and tell him that he is very much loved for all the joy and happiness he had created for millions of people throughout the world, during his all too short life. Hugs are very cathartic...

    I really don't know where all of this is coming from, but i'm glad to have the opportunity to say my piece.

    Just like other gifted artists, there will never be another Freddie Mercury!

    The plaque reads, "to be always near you with all my love M."

    Longue vie de Freddie Mercury!

    Incredible talent--probably the single best frontman in rock history, if you combine talent with stage presence. I didn't care for the gay sailor image, but you can't deny the guy was a skilled performer.

    Queen didn't have a lot of Christmas songs, but this one kind of works for me.

    A class act rocker all the way, and one hell of a performer.

    He reminds me of Jim Carey as the Mask in those vids.

    I've come to appreciate what an exceptional talent, performer, and innovator Freddy Mercury was. I have purchased a lot of Queen music that I especially enjoy listening to on good equipment that allows you to really appreciate his range.

    An incredibly gifted performer and he is sorely missed.
    I remember getting their last album and the emotion in the songs still haunts me today.
    Just like Warren Zevon (another amazing talent), Freddy's work while facing death was incredible.

    It's so sad...

    Start with the tip. Work down the shaft. Run the ball hair through your fingers. Squeeze the nutsack firmly but gentle. Stroke harder and faster. Enjoy that creamy exploding jizz. Then Your DEAD!

    Yeah, it's haunting. Sadly, he looks so made-up and ill.

    There was a great documentary about Queen (and more specifically FM) that ran on some cable channel not too long ago. Apparently he kept his illness from his bandmates for so long that when he finally showed them the lesions on his legs, they were aghast. He wanted to go out with as little fanfare as possible, and I think he achieved that.

    Hard not to wonder what he would have been like today with that incredible voice, showmanship, and talent. Just an all-around born entertainer.

    Freddie is a rock god.
    Who cares who he slept with.
    My brother is gay.
    It's not how anyone was raised.
    It's who they are.
    How old were you when you "decided" to be heterosexual?
    Well, they never decided either.
