Blue Jean - March 2009
Magazine alerts

A really odd short article from a recent issue of Blue Jean (Turkey)

In one of the recent (March, precisely) issues of the Turkish music magazine Blue Jean, a staff writer wrote a short article on John’s life & career and reviewed his most recent solo album.

The good news: they gave five stars to The Empyrean.
The bad news: the article itself could probably measure up with this or, perhaps, this, quality-wise.

You can see the scans on their individual pages by clicking on each thumbnail, or view the whole album here.


The whole article can be read at this URL, translation of the five-star-review is coming soon. Here’s a sneak preview of how strange it is:

He’s crazy. He’s very crazy. If your first thought upon reading these lines us “Hey man, what are you saying?”, don’t worry, I’m not saying anything bad. On the contrary, I’m giving compliments. Because if John Frusciante was reading these lines, believe me, he would have thanked me for these beautiful compliments.

Many thanks to Gizem for having, once again, taken her time to do the scans AND the translation of this eeeh…uh.

    Oh god, that’s the first time I saw that guycandy article. I lol’d. (I think it was kind of tongue-in-cheek tbh)

    that guy candy article was HILARIOUS. I would love to see what John’s expression would be if he ever read that article. Probably he’d start one of his awesome laughing fits.

    Hilarious is about the only adjective I can think of to use… well apart from ‘crazy’…

      Just have to add I clicked on the guy candy link and yes like me I’m sure the man himself would have absolute hysterics reading that little item of hyperbole. I mean, and I quote ‘can he make tea?’ it’s not only hyperbolic it’s bathetic and that is not a typo!

    oh come on that was funny good-natured 🙂
    “Count how many times I used the word “crazy” in this article and multiply it with ten thousand and a hundred. He is that crazy +1. Dear Frusciante, goodbye and accept your craziness!.. ” – i did literally lol… LOL
    It might not be Pulitzer material but the author obviously admires John 😀

    Gotta agree the “guy candy” article looked hilarious… I couldn’t read the text though…

    Kudos to this site to finding stuff from all over the world!

    hell, that was the most useless article I’ve ever read on John. The author is either an egocentric fool or just unable to do his job..or..both 🙄 weird!
