so im new to this place.

 

i was kind of wondering as to why you people have a jennifer good section as a part of your gallery? i know shes very much a part of matt's life and she's easy on the eyes as well, but i find it a little odd that theres a gallery specifically with pictures of her. id understand if it were a "jenn and matt" gallery or something, or even a gallery of her in regards to her animal activism biznazz. but it seems a little weird to me.

 

we're here because of matthew good and the music that he's made and i personally think that there should be some sort of divide when it comes to his life as an entertainer and his life at home. i wouldn't say his wife is related to his work enough that you can actually justify her being a part of the gallery.

 

perhaps im just making too much of a big deal out of this, but i'd like to hear other's thoughts on this as well. please, refrain from justifying her presence here by saying "shes hot".

 

 

 

thanks for your time.

Well it's not really up to you ;) but she hasn't asked us to take it down so...

People come here to discuss and learn about their favorite artist. Some people will wonder what that person is actually like, beyond the music. It's natural, and Jennifer is his wife so she's a part of that. A lot of those pics are wedding one's that were published so having them here is no different than having other publicity shots.

 

I see absolutely no problem with it.

I think Matt is allowed to have his privacy. Before coming on this forum I knew he was married but had never seen pics of his wife. I think that part of an artist life is his private life. Not knowing what his wife looks like does not make his music less enjoyable! I say take them off..

Well she is a model isn't she?

 

Pretty sure she's been by this site before (as she's not a fan of Scot) and if she didn't want the pictures up I'm sure she would've said something.

 

Note: she posts pictures of herself on her public blog too.

I agree that privacy is important and such; but I don't really see how the pictures posted here impose on anyone's privacy. I mean people make their wedding pictures public all the time. I'm sure if ya look around, there's countless people on the internet who've got sites, blogs, etc with that sort of content.

I don't understand why it is a big deal for us to have a gallery about her.

She's posted pictures and talked about her trip to Europe with Matt in her personal blog.

They must of given permission for the wedding photos to be put up online, someone just came across the website awhile ago.

I think if Jen or Matt were really upset about it, they could always contact one of us.

Its not like we have pictures of their home, where they live ect.

That would be a problem I think.

I don't think it's a matter of them being upset with it, it's just not needed, and if you're looking for a place to save some space on the site there you go. If they did agree to put up those pictures I'm sure they never would have imagined that someone would be looking at their photographers website, AND recognize the two of them. I think that the wedding pictures should be moved into the Matt Good gallery and the pictures of just Jenn should be got rid of.

Well, there's only 1 picture of Jenn that's not from the wedding set. Would people still have a problem if the gallery was called Matt and Jenn's Wedding? If so then the content really isn't an issue, it's just the name.

 

And you could argue that their wedding pictures have no business being here, but hey, it's a fan site so what the hell do you expect. I've seen worse on other fan sites.

I think the point is that it's just a bit weird to have a section dedicated to the mans wife. I guess because most are wedding pictures that's okay, but to give her her own section just seems a bit odd. It's a fan site yes, but not a fan site of her and not a stalker site.

At least we don't got pages upon pages of sexually explicit Matt Good fan-fiction.

Yes, they exist. I know for example Rammstein has a number of fan-fiction sites where weirdos express their bizarre erotic fantasies about the band members.

 

A little example:

"In the woods, in the winter, so there are no leaves on the trees, but it hasn't snowed yet. I wake up, look out my bedroom window and see Till, the jacket on fire, the cyborg goggles sweeping the landscape and then the red laser hones in on my window. He sees me, turns and begins walking towards the naked trees. There's a moon, so it's kind of bright out. I'm wearing a white satin nightgown. I get out of bed and go outside to follow him into the woods. No words, nothing. He never even turns around to see if I'm behind him. It's spooky. I lay on the cold hard ground and he just hammers away at me WITH THE COAT OF FLAMES STILL ON and then walks away without a word. I wake up in my bed, all safe and sound, thinking it was a dream, but finding leaves in my hair. Hot. Way hot.

You didn't answer my question. Is it the name of the content that bothers you?

 

I'm not trying to be hostile, I'm just trying to see it your way.

I think we are all really thinking into this way to much.

We are a fansite of Matts and she is part of him so I think she deserves her own catagory.

I can't see why Jen wouldn't want to be known when she has her own blog open to anyone in the public.

 

But since I'm kinda the ruler of the gallery, I say it stays unless Jen truely doesn't want it there.

I think they are great pictures,. it shows Matt in a completely different situation with the one that managed to tame the man.

 

I'm not saying anyones opinion doesn't count here. I just haven't seen enough justification to take it down.

 

I don't think it's a matter of them being upset with it, it's just not needed, and if you're looking for a place to save some space on the site there you go.

 

That's not where I'd want to save space.

Why's that?? I don't see the big difference, both are musicians who've got obsessed fans going beyond good taste to express their fanaticism. Although Rammstein is pretty dark and erotic sometimes so it's not as big a deal for them. Plus they're alot more popular.

first of all, id like to congratulate everyone on being civil. this is the first forum ive been to where people have been polite and actually discuss things with actual backup. props to that.

 

now, it's no big deal that the gallery exists, im merely just questionning WHY it does in the first place.

 

this next part might sound hypocritical coming from someone who's on a fansite just like you are, but i don't see it that way.

 

some have said that we as fans are interested in who matt is as a person, and kind of want to get a glimpse of who he is "behind the music". i do think that this is a natural kind of thing that fans tend to do, however, i don't necessarily agree with it. part of art has to do with interpretation. i like not knowing everything about someone. wedding pictures seem kind of irrelevant to me.

 

i dont see how wedding photos act as publicity. or how they should be regarded as such. his wedding, has nothing to do with the music that he makes. it is his personal life. anything he does away from the stage or the recording booth, im frankly not interested in. jenn may act as a muse for what he puts out, but should his wedding really matter to us??

 

also, because jenn has a blog and posts photos in it is a different thing. she posts herself. she tells you what she wants you to know. she doesn't expose every little detail of her day. neither did matt with the old mblog or the new phantom blog. its one thing when the person is giving you the picture, it's another when those photos are taken without permission.

 

id like to add that this really isnt an important issue, and i dont want to sound like im harping on it. it's merely discussion.

If you don't want to know the person behind the music, don't look at the pictures. If you want to know more, then look at the pictures.

 

Anton (and others) have spent a long time creating a great Matt Good fansite with lyrics, info, and pictures. He's got a lot of fans to please so he's got as much info out there as he can. If you personally don't like, then just stay away.

Look at this guy. What a pro. High fives all around. Sorry Pearanoid, I missed that. It's the fact that it was given it's own section that I just find strange. What I meanby strange is this: When I first discovered the Jenn picture section a part of me, the part that instinctively scours the internet and late nate television for accidentally found porn perked up and said "Oh I hope Matt doesn't see this." Now obviously it's not porn, and far from it. That's just why I think it's strange. Now I also don't think it's called for to have a Jenn section. You can justify those pictures being in a Matt Good photo section but I'm not sure you could justify a Jenn photo folder. I honestly could care less that the section stays up, as it doesn't bother me and I can't see it having any real negative effects. It's just that keeping it there, as borntohula was getting at, perpetuates the whole FANatic/fame/rockstar thing that I think Matt tries to avoid.

 

This is all rather hard to put into words for me. Why not create a section where you have all the non-music Matt related pictures. So pictures of Jenn, him at Christmas, him posing with Ewoks, that sort of thing?
