Loony toons charged
Careful what you Tweet. Or in this case, if you’re crazy … stay away from social media in general. A Seattle woman has been charged after authorities said she sent a series of death threats and other ominous tweets to Soundgarden front man Chris Cornell. Reports indicate that the woman sent over 100 messages from nine different Twitter accounts. Prosecutors say that Elizabeth Walden even sent a Tweet that alluded to a rape of Cornell’s teen daughter. All-in-all, the loon is being charged with cyber-stalking and other criminal charges.
Video has surfaced online of Queens of the Stone Age front man Josh Homme verbally laying into a fan who tried rushing the stage. A minute and a half into the 5 and a half minute video fan shot video of a live performance of the song “The Vampyre of Time and Memory,” a fan is seen getting on the stage. Homme gets up from his piano, grabs dude, wrangles him a bit and then chucks him off the stage. Homme is then heard saying “I don’t care if you love me, you can stay right there dude.” He then goes on to say that he’s there to play, not … uh … let’s just say gratify the guy sexually … He also called him a douchebag. He then works in some other jabs while addressing the audience. It’s a must see for any Queens of the Stone Age fan!
