Any fans out there in it for the MUSIC : LUSENET : R.E.M. : One Thread

Ok I'm so sick of all the female fans out there who only wanna talk about how cute or sexy the band members are(Stipe in particular). I mean ,God, this is not NSYNC or the Backstreet Boys, this is REM people!!!So all of you go buy your copy of "For the Empty" and stare at the front and back of the book(see interview from Dazed & Confused in the news section), but please don't continue these adolescent crushes in this forum.Discuss the music people!Furthermore, are there any fans who aren't sexually obsessed with a member of the band?

You're great! I discovered this site only a month ago but I found a question like: "Is Michael Stipe good in bed?" It made me laugh...but I also thought: "What the hell this f***ing question has to do with R.E.M.??????

I don't think you have too great a point I mean REM are more than simply music and if you want to go about things and be really serious go to another website because I feel the people who come to this website feel more for REM and their music as appose to JUST their music. And I'm not saying I have a crush on stipe, mills or any other member but if someone wants to come out and say it I see no better place than an REM website especially the best one going

Well, excuse us !!! Obviously we are all in it for the music, its brilliant. But we are allowed to have an opinion of the band members and if some of us happen to find one of them attractive then who are you to say otherwise ?? It just adds to the attraction of the band. We all have different tastes and just because you dont find them nice doesnt mean you have the right to rant and rave at those who do !!!!!!

Can't we all just get along?... People who just like REM's music, if you see a question that concerns the band members, don't click on it. It's as simple as that. I hope this works out because I would hate to see a board that's been as peaceful as this one go to hell for itself...

well...the girls like to sigh and say O my- and thats ok just skip over it- no big deal. i think pb is cool as well as an awesome musician. a cool hangout dude. Alright

To Uncle Jammama, I think you should back down on your arguement because you're going against two girls who have alot of input to this Q&a page and to be honest I think you're fighting a loosing battle

-- Darragh (, August 07, 2000.

Is true it's about the music. BUT if it weren't for the band members there would be no R.E.M., ya know? Just a thought:).

Ah ah ah!!! What do u want? Whats the matter with my question " Is Michael good in bed " ??? Dont u know the song " I don't sleep I dream " ????? Isn't it MUSIC ? Isn't it REM MUSIC ????? However, baby, REM aren't only music, for me.

-- Susa (, August 08, 2000.

uncle jammama, didn't i just read an answer contributed by you which said something like "i have eyes just like Michael Stipe. I won't go into a pool without goggles to keep them Michael Stipe blue"? Something along those lines anyway.... but was that about the music????

Susa Baby, "There's nothing Wrong with your questions because your questions are Cool and they made me laugh alot I mean ask another question about Michael Stipey Baby again."

-- Stephanie (, August 08, 2000.

Susa Baby, "Don't Worry I'm pushing you to the Top, I asked if Michael Stipey Baby went to any Homecomings and Proms back in his High School Years."

If you took my question as an adolescent crush from a female 12 years old sexually obsessed with Michael, then, oh, FORGET IT! Yes, maybe I'm an adolescen, and maybe I find Michael very sexy and attractive (and not only him...), but mine was only a silly question written while I was listening to I DONT SLEEP I DREAM. However, I don't find anything wrong with writing something not totally serious about REM, it doesn't mean that REM fans are like NSYNC or BACKSTREET BOYS fans (I hope so...). ;)

-- Susa (, August 10, 2000.

Guys, we are talking about a Band here. There are 3 guys in it - all great musicians and song writers and the like.

Its REM! Not the Michael Stipe Band. Dont forget about Mike & Peter.


-- phons (, August 16, 2000.

I agree with you but oh...everything of him is...mmm...mmm...I'D EAT HIM...mmm...yum yum yum...he he he...!!! ;)

-- Spirulina (, August 17, 2000.

i agree, i love mike and peter as well, they're great! but it is a fact that michael stipe is one of the most attractive men in music. and he has the most beautiful voice. i happen to love mikes voice as well (i might love peters, if i heard it!) and all three of them are enormously talented guys. and even though i became a fan after bill left, dammit i love him as well! sob sob, all the LOVE, its makin' me emotional, sniff.

-- jen (, August 18, 2000.

SNIFF...SOB.....ohh,stop it Jen,my eyeliners running....ok,its time to bury my self in my thoughts of...sob...the BESTEST band ever......

-- ms.Stipe (, August 18, 2000.

blub... now, now, we must control ourselves...

-- jen (, August 18, 2000.

whats it to anyone else if certain indivuals fancy michael stipe? i mean,for starters ur accusation was TOTALLY sexist,i know guys who fancy him too.secondly,its his music that draws people to him,his looks are like a bonus.some people cant help having feelings for him,his lyrics and his voice are so powerful,thats enough 4 most! myself,i couldnt give a toss what anyone looks like,but of corse id admit hes great looking.if these girls who r so silly and immature fancy stipe,they obviously listen to REM-A HIGHLY MATURE BAND WITH HIGHLY INTELLECTUAL LYRICS AT TIMES....AND REFRAIN FROM PERFORMING DANCE maybe u should think again??

-- ms.Stipe (, August 21, 2000.

i'd love michael even if he had three noses, seven eyes and twenty arms. i might try to avoid looking at him, but as far as his voice went, i'd still be addicted to him!!!

-- jen (, August 21, 2000.
