Okay, so ever since the concert, I've had a little bit of a Joel-craze-ish phase. You know, listening to all his songs, googling him and his personal life etc. etc. Well anyway, being a proud user of imbd.com (the internet movie database [but of course, I've just proved that it goes beyond movies]), I looked around for the name of his current wife. Entering the 'Trivia' section of the site, I scanned the page, discovered a couple of pretty cool things about him, chuckled at some of the funny, yet wise and true things that he's said and kindled a want to see the musical: 'Movin' Out'.
Sooner or later, I reached the bottom of the page, and there was a little subsection titled "People Viewing This Page May Also Be Interested In These Other Sponsered Links". Here's what it listed below, and what I thought as I read each one (in italics):
- Free Billy Joel Music (Oh, isn't that nice?)
- Kylie Minogue's IQ = 113 (Wait, isn't that the same as George Bush, Kevin Rudd and that slightly confused little girl in the high chair with spaghetti all over her face?)
- 1 Rule of a Flat Stomach/"How to Lose Stomach Fat" (WHAT?! SO YOU THINK THAT BILLY JOEL ENTHUSIASTS ARE LARGER/FATTER/MORE OBESE THAN FANS OF OTHER INTERESTS?!) [I loaded it twice, and evidently, they provided similar results]
In any case, I was self conscious and outraged! So I dealt with it by writing a blog :).
