Neums: marxychick1: This isn't the first time Richard has called someone out on their dishonesty.

How does a guy expressing an opinion classify as dishonesty? I'm just curious.

Dishonesty was the wrong word. More disingenuous really.

OnlyLivingWitness: Marxychick1"wall of blubbering text"

Settle down big girl, he's still not going to have sex with you

This is the exact thing Marx is talking about. Would you say that to someone's face? Of course not, because hopefully your parents raised you better than that, and because you're probably a farking coward. For the record, I'm married to someone who doesn't mind my fat ass one bit and I get plenty. How are you doing in that department, Studman69?

I'm certainly not going to white knight Richard Marx, but I've met him and he was genuinely nice and down-to-earth.

And I think he got the best of the writer here.

Marx's music was the blandest corporate rock of the 80s.

You know, at first at sided with the blogger, but then I read this paragraph written by Marx:

Here's my explanation. The internet, Twitter and blogs particularly, are a Utopian breeding ground for cowards. A place for small, frustrated people to spew vile, bitter shiat without fearing true retribution. But don't forget...Twitter, as well as your little blog, is a public forum. And in a world drowning a little more each day in apathy, I choose to occasionally call out the cowards, if only to briefly shine a big, bright light on their little yellow streak. Today, you became the poster-boy for Chickenshiat-itis.

The wife and I actually saw him live a couple weeks ago.

He does an 'unplugged' thing were its him, and acoustic guitar and a piano.

I was expecting the show to suck, because hey, Richard Marx. The wife made me go!

He was surprisingly engaging, witty , funny as shiat, and yes, he made fun of his own mullet. I thoroughly enjoyed myself.

Yea, be played a couple of the sappy slow ones, but he did a bunch of pretty well written upbeat stuff too. PLus, a song he recorded with his kids was suprisingly excellent. He played his part live while showing video of them playing theres.

All in all, 50 bucks well spent.

saturn badger: Kyosuke: swahnhennessy: Kyosuke: Interesting. I follow Richard Marx on Twitter


You'll figure it out.

I don't get it. Just boring nonsense.

I guess I overestimated.

Interesting. I follow Richard Marx on Twitter and haven't seen anything to indicate anything mentioned by that author.

In fact, Richard seems very humble and is very funny on twitter. Very real person from what I've seen.

I was honestly surprised to find out Richard Marx was still alive. I have no idea why this surprises me.
