I woke up this morning mind set on making sure I put fingers to the keyboard and wrote a blog entry. While checking through my Facebook feed, I saw the spark to the flame for what is a well deserved rant.
I will fully admit…I like to type with ellipses, which may not convey the best grammar style, but at least I do not visually offend the masses by typing out posts, which read like ghetto queen text messages meant for your boo thing to set up the hook up. This morning, while scrolling through my Facebook feed, an individual’s post to the Meat Loaf Facebook Page screamed at me like a sad puppy due to the sheer amount of literary massacre appearing on my laptop! Check out the screenshot of the post below, and feel free to read my rebuttal here. I decided to post this on my site, as I know my comments would be removed from Facebook at some point.
I used to think that the art of typing was awesome until the word “you” became “u” and people found that to be acceptable. I used to think Australia was a nation of amazingly wonderful people (and still do); however, as a fan of the actor and recording artist Meat Loaf, have found some of the citizens of your fair country to be quite disrespectful and downright rude considering the comments surrounding his performance at the Australian Football League Grand Finale four years ago! Some people are ruthless and just won’t let go. Disney said it best… “Let It Go!“
Now…I am going to address the author of this less than intelligent Internet post directly for a bit – feel free to read along kids. This is going to be good!
Let’s be real shall we, I am not stupid by any means. I know the honest score here. There are many Australians who believe that the Australian Football League should pay Australian performing acts to perform at the event (not entertainers from other countries), and I am going to mark you up in this category based on your comment “till u came to my country….” By this statement alone, you have illustrated that you are a nationalist with an ax to grind against bringing in a foreign national to perform for the people of your country.
You made the comment that Meat Loaf only sang half of it…what do you mean? Are you implying that Meat Loaf did not sing the entire performance? I am watching the performance in question while I type this. The first song is “Whatever Happened To Saturday Night (Hot Patootie)” from The Rocky Horror Picture Show. This is a song from a movie/play and Meat Loaf has performed this song as part of the movie production and as part of the esteemed stage production of the show at The Roxy in Los Angeles. The song (if performed correctly) should be performed half singing and half shouting, as the character singing the song is literally trying to run away from another character in the show that is trying to kill him. Meat Loaf did perform this song correctly.
The second song in the set is the legendary song You Took The Words Right Out Of My Mouth (Hot Summer Night) that was most likely added as it is an audience participation anthem. During the parts where it was appropriate, Meat Loaf was singing. However, Meat Loaf did yell at the audience to encourage them to participate along with the song. This has been part of the live performances of this song since the original Bat Out Of Hell album was released and Meat Loaf began singing this song live in front of audiences.

The third song of the set was the record breaking, international smash hit and Grammy Award winning Jim Steinman composition I’d Do Anything For Love (But I Won’t Do That). The version of the song on the album clocks in at 12:01 on the album, 5:23 on the radio cut…but it could be said that the Australian Football League should have been more courteous to an esteemed legendary entertainer than to hire him to do a performance for their elite event, then expect him to cut down this behemoth of a song to a couple of minute snippet of a legendary pop music classic.
The finale of Mr. Loaf’s performance was the cult classic Wagnerian Rock Opera and birth tune of the big man, with the big voice, who has big hits called Marvin Lee Aday – Bat Out Of Hell. Again, no fault other than the careful editing of this song at the hands of the Australian Football League’s time constraints.
There is a rousing encore of the coda of All Revved Up With No Place To Go.
My last comment to you young lady is this…the only part of your post that really holds any validity is “super bowel” as you are clearly a trouble making woman with absolutely no clue as to what she is speaking about who is speaking out of her ass. The event you are referring to is the Super Bowl, which should be capitalized as it is a copy written term owned by the National Football League.
As for chewing gum – I challenge you to find a performance in any of the many archives of Meat Loaf’s performing career where he does not have gum in his mouth to help keep his mouth moist while he sings.
Finally, you owe all of us who read your post a huge apology ma’am. You come to Meat Loaf”s Facebook demanding a legendary artist of cult fame for respect by do not have the common courtesy to do a simple spell check and review of your abysmal slaughter of basic grammar skills. How dare you? You are the epitome of what is wrong with the Internet. I hope you are proud of yourself for illustrating to the 1.2+ million fans of this artist that you are careless and sloppy enough to troll on an event four years on and not even give the common courtesy to express your concerns and regrets over the performance by typing in proper sentence structure. Your illiteracy speaks volumes about you as a person.
Congratulations for your fuckery ma’am. Well played making yourself out to be a complete moron in front of millions. I hope you are proud of yourself and take your national pride to new levels.
