⚠️ Encyclopedia Dramatica is currently being restored by automated scripts ⚠️

There's been a lot of questions as to what's going on with the site and what comes next. So we have this (ordered) roadmap of what's being worked on and what's to come. This will be updated until the roadmap is complete as Æ has a lot of missing features and ideas that I'd like to fix in regards to its offerings before I implement big plans for the site's popularity and well-being in 2021.

Æ Roadmap

  • Content restoration (Mostly done, few things missing that will be restored sporadically)
  • Image restoration (Being run in background, nothing I can do cept wait)
  • Æ Imageboard (Currently being worked on)
  • Mediawiki upgrade and backend fixes
  • .onion domain for Tor-friendly editing and viewing
  • CSS overhaul (Fixing things like the videos on mobile, and overall a rehaul of the wiki's look to be more friendly to readers)
  • Paid bounty board for new articles (Won't be managed by me for legal reasons however I will ensure it runs smoothly)
  • Anonymous phone # service for those seeking ban evades from Twitter as well as a phone number not tied to their name (more details at launch)

  • Currently we are nearing our annual LLC renewal fee ($650) as well throwing the funds required for these other changes and aspects. If you would like to support Æ consider purchasing a copy of The Hustler's Bible or securing some Merch. Donating is also appreciated however I would rather give something back as per the two options above.

    If you have any questions you can join our public Telegram chat to DM me privately or @ me in chat.

    You can also email me via [email protected]

    Merch notes: Thank you to all who have purchased merch. We will ship late January or mid February depending on our provider's speed.

    Here's to setting the world on fire in 2021! - aediot

    Paul

    The Beatles were an overrated English rock band made up of four pathetic hippies. Formed in the 1960s and popularized by other smelly hippies, one might think that no one actually listens to this band anymore, but throughout the world, hippies, addicts, flaming homosexuals, 13-year-old-boys, and crackers still continue to listen to repetitive and annoying rifts, terrible vocals, and otherwise over-rated works of so-called "musical mastery".

    Paul is Dead

    Back in the 60s, some jokester thought it would be funny to start a rumor about Paul McCartney being killed in a car crash and replaced by one William Shears, the winner of a "look-a-like contest." The idea was that clues to his death could be found on album covers, (No shoes on Abbey Road's cover) by playing the songs backwards, (for example, Revolution 9, a crappy sound collage by Lennon could be played backwards to hear "Turn Me On Dead Man") and in short sections of songs - Come Together allegedly had sound effects from the dirt being shuffled over "The Real Paul's" grave.

    This was exposed as a hoax by media outlets quickly, but to this day, many gullible saps still believe it. In other words, it was a hippie troll fest.

    If it was true, it explains why they took a vastly different direction after Rubber Soul. If not true, and if the band planned it all along, it would make them master-rusemen.

    They always say that truth is stranger than fiction, and the truth is that Paul McCartney faked his own fake death so that he could slip back to a normal life in Liverpewl while everyone else wasted their time obsessing over stupid 'clues' in album artwork. Today, looking considerably rougher than his jet-setting body-double, Paul McCartney lives in a Merseyside council house and occasionally emerges to buy tins of strong lager from the local shop, and tell pointless rambling yarns to passing tourists with video-enabled phones in return for Bernard Matthews's famous Turkey Twizzlers, which he eats direct from your hand.

    Not popular on /mu/

    Too mainstream for the patricians of /mu/, any thread about the Beatles is quickly derailed by Piero Scaruffi's scathing review (read: angry hipster rant) and international-award-winning essay about how much the Beatles sucked by being popular.

    John Lennon's solo work was well-received in Germany

    The fact that so many books still name the Beatles "the greatest or most significant or most influential" rock band ever only tells you how far rock music still is from becoming a serious art. Jazz critics have long recognized that the greatest jazz musicians of all times are Duke Ellington and John Coltrane, who were not the most famous or richest or best sellers of their times, let alone of all times. Classical critics rank the highly controversial Beethoven over classical musicians who were highly popular in courts around Europe. Rock critics are still blinded by commercial success: the Beatles sold more than anyone else (not true, by the way), therefore they must have been the greatest. Jazz critics grow up listening to a lot of jazz music of the past, classical critics grow up listening to a lot of classical music of the past. Rock critics are often totally ignorant of the rock music of the past, they barely know the best sellers. No wonder they will think that the Beatles did anything worth of being saved.

    Unoriginality

    The Beatles have been known to be very unoriginal as much of their material can be described as watered-down versions of music by superior musicians such as Bob Dylan, Frank Zappa, and Love. They have completed countless collaborations and all of the band members have made their own songs, much to the dismay of humanity as a whole. Each member of the group decided that every other member of the group was a douche, so they eventually broke up, but not after John Lennon snapped and committed suicide to finally end his bleak and miserable life. The media of course reported it as homicide.


    John Lennon

    Despite what every half-brained, retarded, unwashed, wannabe hippy majoring in art might think, John Lennon had very little commitment to any of his causes and quickly quit them when they started getting to complicated or in the way of his womanizing, doing drugs, beating his wife and punching women, being a hypocrite or psychologically abusing his son Julian.

    Such as when John Lennon went to India and quickly bought into the Maharishi's teachings and went around preaching them like a first semester college student preaching communism and the evils of religion he quit his new found faith when he learned what commitments were required from him such as celibacy, a drug free life and living a life free from all the trappings of the material world.

    Lennon's peace movement and his dive head first into Americunt politics fared no better. Lennon's commitment to Peace On Earth and the Far-Left lasted right up until his Immigration attorney suggested that he should lie low and keep out of the newspapers preaching the evils of Nixon if he wanted to be granted Americunt citizenship.

    John Lennon is the model for every mentally retarded, has been celebrity looking to remain relevant such as Mark Hamill, Tara Strong, Alyssa Milano or Brad Pitt that believes that their fame gives them an expertise in politics. Like John Lennon, these fuck wits are only committed to the cause so long as they are getting something from it such as headlines, interviews or speaking engagements and quickly quit when it becomes to complicated, usually when an expert shows them what an inbred, AIDS infected monkey they are by using simple things like facts to disprove their heroin high inspired utopia.

    Drummer

    Ringo Starr was most famous for drumming, while not being a great drummer, in fact, he wasn't even the best drummer in The Beatles. Deemed a wannabe, Ringo persued a path of sex, drugs and rock and roll, but as expected, he failed miserably. His life after The Beatles was marked for chewing four gums at once, recording with an ever-changing band, unwanted contributions to the local sperm bank and a Rick Roll tribute, which eventually, he gave up on.
