Insane Clown Posse.
A few favorites from the year:
“I am a Juggalette And a Nurse.. yes you can be both. Just because we are lo's and lette's does not me we can't do shit and be smart [sic throughout].” Andrea Grigsby, one of many passionate local followers of the Insane Clown Posse — a group Times reviewer Robert Bell describes as representing a kind of “stupidity so pernicious it threatens to paralyze the mind of even the passive observer, rendering him mute with dull horror” — in response to Bell’s review of group’s concert at the Village in November.
“He drives the right car, he dresses in the right clothes, he's always in shape and of course, he's always tanned ... He's a wonderful actor. He can sing, dance, wear funny pants. He's just an amazing entertainer." James Caan sums up Blytheville native George Hamilton at the unveiling of Hamilton’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in August.
“I think it's horrible people have been making fun of her. Susan just wants to love Jesus and sing — it's cute. Only I can help her out of her meltdown.” The immensely quotable Beth Ditto offers her service to Susan Boyle in The Sun. Ditto also said Boyle should hook up with her and the Priests, a classical trio of North Irish priests, to form the "world's first gospel supergroup.”
