|So, hmmm, you're probably wondering who I am, and why I decided to put up this crazy idea of a website. Well, my name's Martin,and I just had a really strong urge to design a website, so I thought I might as well do it about something/one I love, so I chose Tori, of all things. Why? Because she's bloody inspirational? Need I give reasons?! She helped turn my life around somewhat, and I'm sort of eternally greatful to her for that. I'm not so different than any of Tori fan I suppose. Got all the albums, some of the singles, some of the vidz, but not obsessed. She made me realise at a time in my life when I needed it, and still need it, how to unleash my anger and stuff, and I think it was that line in "Winter" that really first struck me: "When are you going to make up your mind? When are you going to love you as much as I do?", and I remember being all "whoa" and epiphany-like, and urged my friends to listen.|
|I got to like her through reading this interview with her in Q Magazine, and I was just amazed at how much shit and pain she had been through in her life. She'd been through it all, rape, miscarriage - and yet she was still standing, stll getting through her day. Still to this day, I think of her as one of the most ballsiest women I've never met but would like to. And I remember thinking to myself, if she can do all this - if SHE can live through sexual abuse and the trama of losing children, then the least I can do is stop griping and try and get through my minor miseries with some grace and courage.
I don't worship her. No. I'd like to think I'm not a complete psychotic fan, that I just respect and admire Tori for everything she does. For doing fantastic albums, for speaking her mind, well, just for about everything really. And, I dunno, I get the feeling I'm never going to see her or get the chance to speak to her, so this is where I'm saying it here and now, Thanks for everything.
