I am not surprised in any way, shape, or form.

At all.

Whatsoever.

"So when I hang with the Dalia Lama, believe it or not, we don't talk about KISS."

Yeah. I don't know who wouldn't believe that.

"I don't care what you say and how you act - give me results."

Getting any results yet, asshole.

Just goes to show you that IQ doesn't equal intelligence. Who would've thought that the guy wishing he could copyright air would love Trump?

Birds of a feather...

I never cared for Kiss, so the first time I realized Gene Simmons was an idiot was when he failed to realize Terry Gross was also Jewish.  Sometimes it's the little things that clue you in early that a person should never be taken seriously.

Terry Gross: Let's start with the makeup. Did you like being covered up on stage, did it make you feel any less vulnerable, or any less like Gene Simmons or your other names -- Gene Klein or Chaim White, which was your birth name?

Gene Simmons: Close, but no guitars. It's Chaim Witz.

Terry Gross: Oh, thanks. Okay.

Gene Simmons: You said it -- well, the name came out through gentile mouth, so it didn't quite have the flavor. It came out bland.

Terry Gross: Well it's ... it's not a gentile mouth.

Gene Simmons: Ooh! Maybe it's a discussion we can have.

Terry Gross: Okay.

Gene Simmons: But let's not start something we're not going to finish.

Terry Gross: Right.

Not really.  They are a completely different thing I think.  KISS, Kid Rock, and Nugent fans are, for the most part, relatively mainstream people who live bland and boring lives.  Juggalos.......are not.

Has Gene Simmons replaced Taylor Swift as the Fark entertainment tab "must have one thread a day about" person? She's been pretty quiet lately, and there has been a ton of threads about this idiot. Personally, I prefer Taylor, as she's much easier on the eyes, and every thread about her eventually turns into a discussion about her legs and ass (or lack thereof) along with CSI levels of "zoom and enhance" photographic analysis.

Not surprising. Gene Simmons thinks about Gene Simmons 24/7. He doesn't give a shiat who anyone else is. Unless you're Muslim. Then he cares a whole lot.

Being an Arena Football fan, I got to experience closer up than most his foray into Arena Football with the L.A. Kiss the last few years (2014-16), it was just another example of KISS's "We'll put our name on anything for a buck"-ness.   And of course, our POTUS is right up there with KISS on that regard.

Gene is the rare example of a "rock star" that failed to burn out and was willing to pursue financial interests that has devalued the work he did to build his empire.

Seeing someone in a KISS shirt doesn't evoke the notion of 'Hey, that guys a KISS fan." and then perhaps your own personal take on whether or not you like the bands music.  No, it's "Christ, Gene is a money-grubbing asshole and the bands legacy would be legendary now had he died of an overdose during the first half of Reagan's term in office."

In a sense it's kind of like watching a cult of denial among the fans.  The band and their music and their product was sold as something almost wholly counter to how Gene has decided to conduct himself.  The sort of moronic but good-natured "rock all night and party every day" mindset can't possible be any further from watching Gene consistently find ways to dismiss and diminish the efforts of other musicians he played with (except for Paul) and wake up every day to try and find a new way for him to make money without having to do any actual work.

KISS sits as the second example right next to TOOL where you have to concede that the band hates your farking guts and is only using you as a cash register.

I dont disagree with anything you said. I'm just wondering why Fark has this sudden interest in him? Seriously, there's been almost a thread a day about him specifically for the last week, a situation thats normally reserved for Taylor Swift. I dont think anything he's said or done recently is any more outlandish or newsworthy than his normal levels of attention whoring, but yet he keeps popping up in threads here all a sudden.

Give it a couple weeks.  These news cycles usually have a reason.  There's no way there's a new album coming out but I can see Gene trying to find a way to use his fans as an ATM one more time.  News stories like this just prime the pump for such endeavors.

I don't know many "leftists" that really "care" if you like NASCAR or Pro Wrestling or Country Music (just picking 3 "stereotypical" things that "lean" towards right wingers/conservatives in fandom).   Yes, there will be some jokes thrown out there, but, no more than conservatives make about "Snobby liberals eating caviar and reading Proust and listening to Classical Music".

Most DO care about what you hate though, or really more importantly, what you hate because of a "generic blanket" reason and when you want to put that hate into law.

Kiss stole it's schtick from Alice Cooper and have admitted as much. But Alice never really lost his connection to his working class fan base and never got a big head. Gene's arrogance turns a lot of people off. Granted, he worked to get what he has, but his fellow band mates (the two who no longer work with him, anyway) have even said that he got into the band to make money and that he was basically an "old Jewish guy" more interested in money than anything else even when he was in his 20's before they were famous. It kinda takes away from the idea that he did this because he loved music and got lucky enough to build an empire from it.
