I thought this was a joke column when I saw it in my local paper.

Apparently Elton John thinks we should shut down the internet for 5 years. Seriously.

I'll upload the article from my local paper. The writeup was better.

Yeah, apparently the internet is 'destroying the music industry' or something, so he wants it shut down so the industry can recover...

He's got a point tho. The 70's rocked and today's music does suck balls...

Still shutting down the internet's not gonna solve that.

Im not sure if # "I do think it would be an incredible experiment to shut down the whole internet for five years and see what sort of art is produced over that span." translates to that tbh.....

Yes, because MTV and VH1 don't show one should whore their pseudo-art out to the masses. It's the internet that's doing that.

Wuggles for everyone!

He apparently also thinks bloggers don't deserve to live.
I'll find the quote when I post my paper's copy of the article.

Is it even possible to shut the internet down? There are tons of ISPs and servers not everyone would ever agree with shutting it all down...

How would you "shut down" the Internets? It's not a big truck that you can ram off the road!

Come on everybody, let's quickly make a back-up of the internet and burn it on a CD for great justice.
