kotipelto's statement on www.kotipelto.com

Post by jean_luc_picard » Fri Jul 02, 2004 7:04 pm

have you read the statement by tk on his home page? he says nothing more than what is known, but at least there's some dialogue in the band. hope this will lead to positive things. Anyway, I think that the matter will not be solved after the 3rd of july as we all thought (or at least hoped)... we'll have to wait longer :D =P
What are you going to do then?

I think Koti wants to do his own thing for awhile--and he should.
Popkiller can wait until next year.
I have mixed feelings about all of this, and considering the emotional volatility of this situation, I am keeping my opinions mostly to myself.
I kinda feel sorry for Koti in this situation-he has some hard decisions awaiting him in the future. I just want to tell him that he does not have to sell his soul,so to speak, to make it in this business.
I finally heard COLDNESS, and its a wonderful piece of work! IMO, better than WFTD...:)
I say: Koti, Spread your Wings and go solo for awhile--but be careful that no vulture clips them from you. ;)
Strato will wait--because Koti is the backbone of that band--I think that has been shown without question.

I know I'd certainly be annoyed if I read a forum with someone who was obsessed to an extreme point with me, its like you're treating strato members like dolls...

I agree. You're brave to speak out IMO, cos you know you're gonna look the bad guy somehow.

oh that's really cool. a pair of posts and we've gone completely off-topic. Very nice indeed. I'm taking bets on how long will it take for this to be locked :~(

Yes, really sad...
BTW, I think that Timo Kotipelto has done a good thing writing that statement, even though it says nothing really that WE WANT to hear (Kotipelto back...). But I think he'll be back, maybe he will rightly ask Tolkki to have more control on the band too, and to have some songs if other members agree. If Kotipelto comes back, Jorg comes too and we will pass a good Christmas.

About the off-topic posts, I think that Browneyedfool is not a troll, but someone who is quite tired of BEG's "wet-panties" posts. I mean, it's the same for guys, when they said sexy-thing to MissK. But, they stopped doing that, it was foolish... BEG doesn't stop it, and this can annoy someone sometimes! But it's my opinion that until she doesn't insult someone else, she's simply free to express her passion for Tolkki. My advice is not to exaggerate, though, like with the picture-thing... First, because it's not something that will be necessary positive for Tolkki himself, then because it seems that there's noone here where BEG can share her deep and strong feelings... Cheers!

This could indeed be a chance for the band, perhaps TT and TK get to a point where they are able to change the hierarchic situation in the band... which may lead to fresh song ideas... or something like that :err:

agreed, let's hope this is the turning point of the whole matter. I think the guys will have necessarily to reach compromises, in terms of actual "weight" of band-members in decisions, song-writing etc.

I too think it may be annoying, also because most of the times pictures recurr... I mean it's like a joke, when you do it once it's nice, if you're taking it too damn long it hurts =P But I also think that we all are willing human beings, and as long as browneyedgirl is allowed to do so by moderators it means that she's doing nothing "wrong", ok? So if someone doesn't like that kind of topics they can simply avoid them, understand? no one forces you to visit a topic, so it seems to me useless to flame people publicly. There's private messaging for such things. And also it annoys me more than the (too much!)heavy pictures of begirl the behaviour of people who can't wait to use whatever pretext to launch verbal assaults to users they plainly dislike. Again, do you know private messaging? =P
cheers!

well 2 things 1: as for the koti post on his website he had to say something as i had mentioned in a previous post elsewhere in this forum the band was under contract to do a certian number of shows so he had to explain why the extra shows have been added the good news here is that the 2 timos are communicating and as for the return of koti well it will take time! as the saying goes once biten twice shy it will take time for timo tolki to convince timo k
that his new behavior is not a charade only when koti believes this will he return !!
next 2: as for browneyedgirl man you guys really got to get a life so shes is hooked on tolki and a few other men
so what yes she takes it to extremes sometimes but at least she is usually a breath of fresh air around here !
Metal isn't dead it just moved to Europe !!

That message was old, dude! :D
and yeah, it didn´t help much...but they´re talking...so, let´s give THEM a break.

About the off-topic thing, there´s a place we can discuss it:
http://www.stratovarius.com/forum/viewt ... picID=5371

that topic wasn´t meant for that, but it´s better than spoiling jean_luc´s one!

I finally got around to hearing COLDNESS, and it is a nice album! A different sound than WFTD, but I like it! Koti is going places--whether its flying solo, or with Strato! :)

As far as the praising Tolkki thing--let me ask one question: when has praising became a bad thing? This 'ol world needs more sincere praise. Hearing ladies praise Koti all the time does not bother me because I don't think I "own" any of the bandmembers. Also, so what if a band is halfway around the world--from USA, most are! And I have praised ALL the bandmembers--why did "fool" just choose Tolkki as example? ;) As for obsession bullshit--like I said, when it comes immoral to give justifiable praise to people, thats when I want the world to stop&let me off because it has became too cold&sick for me! :)
And, no, I have not met any of the members, have YOU, fool? ;) But, so what to that because most people never meet their fav bands--does that mean we aren't supposed to notice their attributes, or like them as human beings? :shake:

I kinda feel sorry for "fool"because I sense desparation of some kind, and lots of mental distress. This is a thing with alot of problems to do something like this.
So, lets just ignore "fool" and get on with our lives. I think it accomplished what it sat out to do, which is gain attention for itself.
Seriously, read between the lines: Maybe we should pity "fool".

I'm really happy that Kotipelto decided to do one more show. So then the situation is not so unbearable for Koti that he willingly goes to another extra show.

But I do sense a lot of bitterness in Koti's voice, at least in interviews. Has anyone else realized it? When talking about Tolkki, he's always saying things like

"we will work together to resolve any problems his mental ilness may have caused."

Before, he said something like:

"Well, its really difficult to know what to think when you're dealing with a mentally ill person."

I don't think those were the EXACT words, but I remember he did say something like that about his mental illness.

Ok then, browneyedgirl. Tell me now. Don't skimp on this answer. If you have any heart in what you are saying then answer this. Do you honestly believe Tolkki enjoys the 'flattering' comments that you make of him on a regular basis, or is he just as sick of it as I am!

That´s it exactly, browneyedfool. I am not going to ban you because of your name. But it seems obvious now that you came here to fight. I can´t allow that.

So BEF, please stop this type of shit, if you want to stay here.

I didn´t even realize the nature of browneyedfool´s (previous) signature. The way I read these I don´t see the signatures.
