RIP Idletard

October 18, 2009

I’m not happy about it either.

Leave your prayers and memorials here. The spirit of Idletard will live on…the spirit of Idletard lives on within each and everyone of us.

Idletard…YOU WILL NOT BE FORGOTTEN.

RIP Idletard -- You will be missed

    Dude, Smartie, I was a HUUUUUUUUUUGE fan! what happened? why did you leave us? is it because those jackholes published your personal info on the web? I CAN’T REST TILL I KNOW WHY YOU TOOK AWAY THE ONLY JOY I HAVE IN MY LIFE. Ok, that sounds crazy. but I’m going to miss the L. Anne stuff. And damn it, you left just before Adam Glambert exploded into a superstar… *snerk*

    As a regular on Idletard, I sure will miss it. For a second, I thought Smartie had blocked me and was about to go all WHYYYY, but after checking on VFTW I saw that it had been brutally ripped away from me, and … yeah, okay done with the dramatics.

    Thanks for the laughs and the good times, Smartie. You showed many people the ~light.

    I am going to miss the beauty that was L Anne, and the rest of the fandom wank that was so fun to poke at.

    Bye bye Idletard and Smartie. You fans can keep up with you on your Muppet website or, your Danny Kaye website or, at Star Trek Conventions. Is there a Star Trek costume big enough for you?

      Just because a person has websites for something does not mean they’re a tard. And I’ve been to a sci-fi convention…and I loved Star Trek: TNG and was obsessed with the new Battlestar Galactica. In fact, I have a BSG Calendar in the cube I’m sitting in right now.

      Must make me a tard. Oh, and Danny Kaye and the Muppets are beloved by millions, so really, your rationale blows. You can be a fan of something and appreciate it without acting like an idiot. That’s the difference between being a fan and a tard.

      Being fan is one thing and being fantard is totally different thing. Thanks to Idletard I can see the difference.
      @Maharis apparently you can’t make difference between these two and that is why you are a tard.

      Also it is so much better being a fan of a fictional character than being fan of a reality show contestant and stalk them everywhere. AO glamberts are fighting right now for who is the bestest fan, to get closer to Adam. LOL, it is hilarious.

    I literally felt like someone punched me in the stomach when I found out our AWESOME Idletard was no more. It was an amazing site with an amazing admin and amazing regulars. It will be missed.

    I will miss all of you guys. Hopefully we can somewhat stay in touch here at TI’s site. Thanks for all the wonderful tard memories – our queen of SWANK L Anne, the most romantic author of our time, Lizzie, and of course Svag, Marty and Jabba.

    Farewell Idletard.

    Damn. I never got my “Mount Baldy” sign pics sent to Smartie. I was also going to make Cook a home-made Tard Art t-shirt with an iron-on photo of the sign. :o)

    One day last summer, I was in a town where Cook was going to be playing that evening. There were plenty of tickets and I considered going. Then I drove by the venue. There were a couple of lines at the doors and the people waiting were mostly fat, very white (wearing shorts so their legs literally glowed bright white), and old.

    That is why I drove on by and went home instead of going to the concert. No way was I standing in that line, and it had nothing to do with the wait.

    I had never even heard of IdleTard at that point. When I found the site several weeks later, it was perfect. But it was too short. *sniff*

    :o)

    “What do we know about them?” — Top Idol

    Is this question in reference to Babs and Laurel G.? MJ quoted Babs angry comment and then called her Lori. I noted that L. Anne was also called Laurie/Lori. I assumed MJ might have called out L. Anne. It seems Babs and Laurel G. were arguing with MJ. As you read, Babs calling MJ a sick bitch like that Idletard woman. Laurel G., I think for the most part is harmless. She is constantly feigning outrage over social injustices. She’s so busy pontificating and pointing fingers she’s deaf to anything else. She thinks she’s right. I’d be surprised if she backed down from the L. Anne and Idletard issue or apologized to MJ.

      Well, if MJ called her Lori it was probably for good reason. Remember…bloggers can see the IPs of those who post or even visit.

      What do we know about them?

  13. Bluewave permalink

    L Anne is rejoicing at mj’s:

    ” I don’t think she’s innocent. She brought a lot of shit on herself. ”

    You sound like a person who possesses the “blame the victim” mentality. Sort of the type who blames a rape victim who “deserved it.” If you agree with such behavior, you’re as much as a sick b**ch as that Idletard woman is.

    “Maybe. I don’t think any of us really know. Since we don’t know HER, any more than we know Paula or Adam or David C. She could also be severely mentally disturbed, someone who is high functioning enough to support herself and get through daily life but who is sick nonetheless. Not unlike a high functioning alcoholic who somehow manages to be successful despite having a serious illness.”

    Exactly. They were so quick to judge people without even knowing them personally. What I saw of a few of THEM, they aren’t supermodels either. Frankly, I’m glad the site is gone. It served no purpose outside of being a glorified hate site. It’s funny they called people “anti-Semitic” and “racist” in some posts, yet they made fun of homosexuals and people who are handicapped in some ways. Hypocrites much? Now that the site is gone, maybe the b**ch will have to actually get a real job and a life. And no, stalking innocent strangers doesn’t qualify.

    and

    “I’ll miss the L Anne stories. What a hysterical, sociopathic character she is.”

    Are you medically qualified to diagnose someone you never met? I thought not.

    Also let it be a lesson that printing false information about someone is a term known as “libel.”

    Then mj delivers the smackdown.

    “If you agree with such behavior, you’re as much as a sick b**ch as that Idletard woman is.”

    Nice language there, Lori.

    You must be so relieved that Idletard is gone. Now you can get back to conning and lying your way around the internet without interference. lol.

      I agree. There were some people who deserved mocking for going to 1,324,874 shows and doing really crazy stuff. That was funny and I enjoyed reading it as an idol FAN who has never traveled a major distance for any idol related show.

      What WAS unfortunate was the mocking of people who went to one show and blogged about the experience for other fans. People who have real lives and who are really amazing women. Really amazing, talented women whom others just felt the need to tear down based on things like their excitement and their weight. (And no Smartie, I’m not a “fatty” 😉 )

      But I WILL miss the mocking of the crazies who deserved it.

    I will never forget Idletard’s vibrator comment as the Glamberts waited for the premiere of TFM. Just one gem of many. That Laurel G. is something else, a self-righteous bitch that pretty much called everyone in the red states homophobic and the reason Adam Lambert didn’t win. I went back and forth with her a lot. I can understand the attitude if she was speaking from personal experience, suffered her share of bigotry or someone close to her, but she cited no such thing. I asked her if she thought gays were only bicoastal. She’s the world’s conscience and if you don’t see it her way you’re a homophobe, a bigot, a Republican. ::grin::

    Oh, and that Kradam picture, funny shit and fugly as all get out. Can’t they tell that the pictures suck? Not exactly what I call a loving tribute.

    Best of luck, Idletard

                      Okay, I’m not sure why my last post landed up^^^ there – but I made a copy at the 100 default which is standard, for you. There’s some cropping, but unless you shrink the image – it has to fit into a square.

                      Okay, I can explain this art, I think. It comes from a whole meme that Matt was scorned by Kris. Kris was good friends and roommates with Matt in Hollywood week, then became Adam’s roommate in the mansion and became better friends with him. So, Matt was scorned (he does sort of have a perpetual scornedface) and would cry the “lone Indian tear” like the guy in the old “don’t litter” commercials.

                      I think. 😉

                      yeah I guess, but it doesn’t look creepy at all. Its just a nice portrait of Kradam. Eh if it is tardart then its of the lowest level. I mean compare it to the other Adam one where his poorly drawn disembodied head is glowing. Yeah.

        There was some horrendous Kris Allen tard art up a few days ago. For some reason, two of the “portraits” gave Kris two lower lips.

        Poor Kris, shafted by 19Evil. He didn’t deserve bad tard art. And now, by Grabthar’s Hammer, he cannot be avenged by Smartie.

    First time posting here. I’m still in mourning. Idletard was like the wikipedia of tardology. A place where members of, and those familiar with individual tard groups could gather their information and observations. It was an epic study of the socilology, psychology, and anthropology of American Idol tard cults. It housed the great Museum of Tard Art Galleries. The poetry, the literature, the prayers, etc. I feel like I’ve just watched the Library of Alexandria go up in smoke!

    I wish Smartie well. I don’t know how she managed all that by herself. RIP idletard.

    Smartie, take care of yourself and thank you for providing me with enormous laughs on long grim endless work shifts and for introducing me to the batshit crazy world when fans get too involved and L Anne. I will be forever grateful for those things even as I’ll miss logging in to see what latest crazy has happened every day. Thanks for providing me with an outlet for some of the weirdest stuff I’ve ever written, i.e. parody fic, self interview, Cook reviews. Thanks for the laughs and helping me find some like minded folks.

    I was surprised of the suddenness of the sites demise, but its best to go out on top. I know Smartie has her reasons. RIP and Thanks, you will be missed by many, and the laughs will certainly be fewer..

    Just curious if there will now be competition among the Frau to make the claim it was “them that shut the site down”

    I can’t sign off with at least one more bit on L Anne, has the Goddess of IT passed comment?

      THANK GOD, Idletard has shut down. Hopefully, for good. The woman who ran it seemed to be on a kind of jihad or personal mission to persecute some woman named L. Anne whose sole crime seemed to be that she lived in a sort of delusional, fantasy world and blogged about it.

      It was so middle school and L. Anne was the overweight girl who ate lunch by herself at the table by the window. I was seriously beginning to think I was going to read in the headlines that this poor woman had committed suicide. It was that mean and vindictive. Really hateful stuff.

      That was one…hmmm…it doesn’t sound like her, as the sentences are too short. HA HA HA HA HA MJ defends Idletard:

      She didn’t just blog about it. She created online personnas on message boards that were complete fabrications. She’d lie, manipulate and create havoc,–get busted and start all over again somwhere else. She hurt people. I don’t think she’s innocent. She brought a lot of shit on herself.

        The cunts on MJs blog dancing on IdleTard’s grave really fucking piss me off. One of them, Jx223, is a Gokeytard who spends all day, every day posting Stepford-wife rah-rahing bullshit about The Black Widower on TWaT. I hope if/when IT ever resurrects her blog, she targets that stupid bitch first.

          Ah yes, Jx223. One of my many favorite TWaT posters. I remember reading some of her Grassy Knoll posts from before the finale where she said she wasn’t even a fan of Danny’s (suuuure) but loved Anoop and possibly Matt. Then after the finale she posted daily on Danny’s thread and pretty much single handedly changed it from the snarkiest performer thread on the site into tard central.

    Wha’ happened? I go out of town for a couple of days and it’s gone? I was just getting comfy there. Seriously, is there no hope of it coming back? Because L.Anne is the only Goddess, and Smartie is her only messenger.

  39. October 18, 2009 11:42 am

    Hmmm. This is a difficult one for me as a tard-in-transition. And as many of you will know, being former freaks and now just ordinary fans, it can be quite a painful process getting the tard knocked out of you. But I have to say Idletard has given me plenty to chew over – and made me laugh out loud till my face and sides really hurt. Tho think the biggest loss will be Dr Fender’s tard quiz – how can I gauge my progress now? Is all hope lost? Ah well. * Shrugs. Chews popcorn * (Ha! See that! Perhaps there is hope after all). Really, thanks for the laughs.

    Idletard, I shall miss you so. Thank you for all the jaw-droppingly shocking glimpses into the minds of fantards and all the hilarious characters and artistic tributes you brought into the spotlight. Thank you for inspiring my first frau safari. Thank you for dierra and SKOOSH. I never realized how much Idletard was a part of my day until now, so I guess that makes me a recovering Idletard tard. Thank you the most for all the awesome people I’ve come in contact with through the site! Idletard will be missed.

    RIP, Idletard. Smartie, thanks for the millions of laughs. You rescued many a tard and brought them back to reality. And then there were others who were beyond rescuing. Thanks for the many contests, which brought us wonderful objects, writings, and art to ooooh and ahhhhh over. Thanks for the new vocabulary: lawler, vagsweat, and others that I use in everyday speech. Tanks for de memories.

    I was devastated when I saw Idletard was gone last night!! I had to check again this morning to make sure it was not just a bad nightmare 😦 My morning was not the same today without my daily check of the crazy on Idletard. I will miss L Anne (although I am the proud owner of the one and only L Anne doll), all the clever and snarky commentators and especially Smartie. Hell, I will even miss the cooktards and the sparklecows! Thanks again, Smartie, for the immmeasurable laughs, and best wishes to you.

    P.S. We never got to vote on the tard prayer contest! 😦

    Smartie, thank you for pulling me from the abyss when I needed it. I was close to becoming a full-on mega Cooktard until Idletard came into my life. Now I can gladly say I’m a fan…JUST a fan. And I have you to thank for that.

    Who will fill the void? There are lost little Gokeytards and Whotards and Madamtards who need someone with a strong pimphand and mirror of truth to show them the light. And what will Baldy do now that Idletard is gone? I will wear black all week in mourning.

    Idletard, thanks for the laughs. I know it was a lot of hard work putting together all of that, and as an avid reader, I want you to know I appreciated it – one of the funniest places on the internets.

    It’s tough to draw the curtain, clean up the blood and entrails, and call it a night, though. I just hope it was because you were tired of it, and not threatened by a sea of sparklecows with pitchforks.

    As someone who is a newbie to the fandom (first episode I watched was this year’s finale), I thank you Idletard for giving me a proper introduction to the special snowflakes religiously following AI’s old product. Special kudos for introducing me to Constantine’s “appeal”. How did I live a lifetime without that knowledge? It is beyond me.

    Thanks for pictures of sparklecow tattooes. Talk about seared to the brain.

    The visual images gleaned by descriptions of David Cook fans kept me in stiches. Photos of AI fans artwork, displaying their ‘creativity’ for all the world to see? Priceless. Reading the ‘epic fictions’ written by overly invested fans? I was left without words.

    Oh Idletard, it is so sad that you decided to leave when normal fans needed you the most. Now, when we’re experiencing a level of bat shit craziness in fandom not seen since the age of Aiken. You were one of the few (others include TI and VFTW) who would have kept a historical record for self-deprecating fans lost in the stampede.

    I am absolutely devastated. Totally. But I will not stop on my mission. It will happen. I promise. Dang it! And I was “this” close to earning my Tard Strong bracelet. Sigh. Would Smartie hire a lawler and sew me if I had my own blue and white bracelet made?

    Smartie and Idletard. You will be greatly missed. The service you’ve provided will not be forgotten. You saved many of us who were just about to drink the kool-aid.

    Enjoy life Smartie, have fun and I hope I will see you here or there from time to time.
