Just checking in today Freddie Darling, I just love your names your giving everyone what about me I think I need one too.I just think I will leave that to you.TUHI that is a perfect abbreviation for your name I love it we have so many creative minds here.I hope we have many more to come with the new book coming out.Nothing stopping it it's on it's way to books stores everywhere that's wonderful.Its so refreshing to get a fun playful side of Freddie not such the business man we all have read alot of literature of what he was like from that side.Thor I hope things a progressing forward and you might get tired of seeing this but I'm thinking of ya take care and come back soon .

Wow so much good convo to catch up on!

You can include my husband and son in the eye roll club even though my hubby is a serious musicophile! I frequently tell him that it’s grounds for divorce and have told both that they are not invited on my Montreux trip ??. I am bringing my daughter cause, even tho she rolls her eyes at me, she does that with everything so……

JB, you really don’t need to apply for Fredfie’s job. It’s hers, you can’t have it lol! I’m going to put the tshirt questions on my list to either send in to Ask Phoebe or when I (fingers crossed) see him on the Montreux boat ride!

Actually, I’m going to start re-reading my books to compile a good Phoebe question list – if anyone has a burning question you want me to add, let me know!!!

Fredfie, part of my re-reading is to narrow down the sacking blurb. I’m going on bad memory here so no yelling……this seemed to happen at the same time as LOMO. The quote referenced firing the 3 people and that he was now “living on my own” as well. Makes it sound as if the people were much closer? I do love your webcam idea tho I think there should be 2: 1 like the pic you posted, which was awesome, thanks! And one from the front so we can see Freddie’s face. Not that the “rear” view isn’t awesome!!

Ditto on Thor - I hope both he and Lee are doing well!!!

SniffsU ——Wow, Fired before I even apply.. :))

In-person question List for Phoebe is a great idea.. got excited for you all over again when you mentioned THE trip. Will be fun to add the Moving up joyy short to it too. Wonder If it’s something they foynd and thought he would like. Or maybe an early birthday gift. Will be fun to get his answer.

Shirt question and the sacking of 3 people officially added. Will add your France rating question too if you don't come up with something satisfactory :). I did put a bunch of links on the other thread that you can wade through if you want.

JB, THE trip is never far from my mind. I have the dates and it seems the only tickets I will have to buy would be for the boat trip if it happens and for the party at the casino. We will prob schedule to be there 9/4 and 9/5 then on to who knows where. Would like to spend all 4 days there but trying to be respectful of those I am traveling with. I will just be grateful to be there at all!

Was thinking I'll have to get this shirt for the event: http://www.queenonlinestore.com/Freddie-Mercury/*/Freddie-Never-Boring-Squares-T-Shirt/68RK000011B. Katy - I'm thinking that's Kurt Raab in one of the squares???? Now I'll never forget his name lol!

Just saw on Instagram that Phoebe will be in London tomorrow doing some interviews. He will be on the Lorriane (???) show amongst others. I'm sure us Americans won't be lucky enough to hear but some of you others will (Fredfie!).

The guy is running out of money again - time for another Freddie kissandtell appearance......

I ask myself why almost none of the posters on here comment in other Queen sections on QZ......

Runner, as a new follower and commenter on QZ, I'll toss in my impressions. I'm not personally interested in contemporary Queen--I'm in the camp of 'no Freddie, no John, no Queen', so I pay no attention to 'new' Queen threads. I'm not, nor do I anticipate becoming, a collector or trader--just not my thing, so those threads are irrelevant to me.

What I have noticed is that in the "Serious" discussions, almost without fail, the conversations that I've followed, even when they start off with an interesting question, devolve into nasty name calling and generally rude behavior by quite a few of the commenters. Not all, but it's very common that threads get ugly real quick. Quite frankly, life is too short and I don't waste my time with that. Sometimes, one can't avoid gross people, but when given the choice, I choose to avoid that kind of behavior.

One exception to that were comments by someone named John Stuart, who I noticed died just recently. That was listed in the "Personal" thread. He posted for years and apparently, he was considered a true expert and serious collector with all things Queen. From the threads I've followed that he was involved in, I learned quite a bit. RIP, Mr. Stuart.

The conversations in "General" have, for the most part (a few trolls notwithstanding) remained respectful and interesting--and fun. I'll also add that both Lee and Thor place a lid on the occasional nasty comments that surface. There's simply a different vibe to this group.

My 2 cents' worth.

Caution Thereuhaveit,

Runner_70 is one of the worst trolls on this site. She goes away if people completely ignore her. She will pop in
every once in a while to try to stir up trouble (and always the same lines used) That "guy running out of money" is supposed
to be me. You are new and did not know this. .Don't engage with this troll unless you have a psychiatric referral for
her.

Amidds, even though your trip is far in the future I'm excited that you are already planning it. I like the shirt you are thinking of ordering. I can't get it to enlarge enough for me to be sure of what I am seeing, but I think I see Jim Beach and David Wigg. Not sure about Kurt. In which square do you see Kurt?

Katy, at first I thought it was the middle on the right but when I went back just now, NO WAY! So hard to see in those little pics lol. And, I was wearing glasses. Fat lot of good they are!

Fido, for what it’s worth....hear! Hear!!! We’re gonna have to start a change jar like JB for you ;)

Thor, unfortunate happenings seem to have fortunate results I guess! Nice to hear from you. I hope this appearance means all is going well for you????

Thanks, Amidds. I'm not sure I get the change jar reference? It's like the nicknames--I'm playing catch up, so as they say: be gentle. :) It was nice to see thundergod again, and any chance to say/spell that name, am I right??

Chevy, it does seem to be a fun bunch.

Oooohhhhh great shirt Amidds!!! Perfect birthday celebration shirt!!! (Excitement for you continues)... so great you are taking your daughter!!!

Didn’t look like the shirt comes in black.(?) if it does then I would have a hard time not at least considering it getting one too :)

Chevy..., liked your goodnight string. How’s your dog?

Eye rolling family/friends really funny. .... No eye rolling here in our shared passion :) respect admiration fondness etc etc.

He is doing good money with his kissandtell stories, books, convention appearances - most of the time he is annoying

The guy running out of money is Phoebe - my answer was about his upcoming appearance. But good point that you see yourself in the same vein. As I already told you more than once - issueing a book of private pics supposed to be private for good is bad taste and a sad money grab on behalf of your so-called former "friend", who sadly cannot defend himself anymore. He would sue the shit out of you
