How many people have sat by, shaking their heads in disgust as they watched the abominations targeting Renato and I as issued by Tracy Terhune, David Bret and their obedient sycophants? Have they deleted their memberships in the forums they run where all of our work is banned, lied about and mocked as the subject of their pathetic and failed attempts at humor?
Did these silent, yet disgusted watchers open their own forums to expose this behavior? Did they react with fury that such people could have a word to say about Rudolph Valentino? I think in some cases it was complicity for the sake of a new picture of Valentino. And also the distinct delusion that it was not such a big deal.
It was and still is for Renato and I... and I carry the torch now; high and proud and blazing. I call on those with a conscience to speak up, stop the shunning, the abuse, the idiocy of those people who reject all of the new material we brought forth. And cease supporting in any way those who steal the work we completed honestly.
Granted many if not most people are unaware of the actions because for years on end while Terhune taunted Renato and I with tick tocks and wishes for our deaths, and ageist mocking about us "sipping Ensure"...etc.. madwoman of Turin... saying no one would miss us when we are gone... he has hidden those posts and never once promoted them on his forums, Mad About the Boy and We Never Forget.
Hypocritical of him and his little posse of folks who traipse along doing their best to please him.
And not so admirable of those who do know about it all and hide in the side lines hoping for a new picture of Rudy or a nod from the magus at the crypt in August.
There have been spies in the world of Valentino who came along to feign a friendship with Renato and I, then to disappear cruelly without a word of explanation. That is their priority it seems. Priorities are an individual thing I guess but respect is earned imo and some folks' priorities get little respect from me today.
