    Morrissey A-Z: "Journalists Who Lie"

    I know I liked this decades ago, but I guess it fell by the wayside. I am a fan of "Our Frank," as well. The music is unusual and oddly danceable, maybe even a little rockabilly. Morrissey's vocal is engaging. The lyrics are honest though I appreciate his calling out the journalists more since...

    Morrissey A-Z: "Mama Lay Softly on the Riverbed"

    Amazing song! My first listen. Cathartic for me as I've lost my mom in the past couple years. There IS a feeling of wanting to go with her. A part of you is gone when your mom dies. 🥁 And his railing against an unjust system is fierce. Perhaps we will hear another of these on the Bonfire of...

    Morrissey A-Z: "Michael's Bones"

    My first listen. Wow! The impact could knock a person over.

    Morrissey A-Z: "Lucky Lisp"

    That could be. The fellow is also likely Irish with the mention of lucky, clover, saints & Jesus. I like to think it's about anyone who uses a seeming disadvantage to their advantage. And pretty sure I always assumed when younger that the Irish fellow was gay, because two other songs on...

    Morrissey A-Z: "Mexico"

    First time I've heard it. Dreamy in a Lazy Sunbathers kind of way which is a compliment. 💘

    Fiona Dodwell: "The poet without a home: Morrissey has been let down by the music industry" (May 31, 2021)

    Calling people names shuts down the conversation. And if you had facts, you wouldn't be calling me names. 😁 The fact is that anti-corporate language is used by the far left, not just Trump. It was a staple of the Bernie Sanders' campaign. Another fact is that plenty of diverse artists are out...

    Fiona Dodwell: "The poet without a home: Morrissey has been let down by the music industry" (May 31, 2021)

    And his support of her is mainly due to supporting the borders issue, correct? Because it seems he supports issues rather than parties. I feel he likely knew better than us the backlash he would receive. He's closer to the noise living in LA. When you are in the thick of it, you know.

    Fiona Dodwell: "The poet without a home: Morrissey has been let down by the music industry" (May 31, 2021)

    Has anyone tracked how many fans he's lost since then? I was an ex-fan last year (from his hey day) and a coworker told me about For Britain just before IANaDoAC came out. I read an article about it then went to YT and found a Larry King interview with him that made it very clear he's not...

    Fiona Dodwell: "The poet without a home: Morrissey has been let down by the music industry" (May 31, 2021)

    He's having the same struggle that Prince and George Michael did but handling it better. If he was selling more, they'd want to use him up and throw him out like them. You have to ask the question: what is he not cooperating with? There lies the answer to everything. Anyone can be a slave to...

    Fiona Dodwell: "The poet without a home: Morrissey has been let down by the music industry" (May 31, 2021)

    In order to sell more, he would very likely have to compromise his work thus losing the fans he has. The music industry would insist on more and more control with every record. Who are we to say that the balance he has found, when most artists either die or burn out by his age, is not the best...

    Morrissey Central "MORRISSEY NEW ALBUM" (May 30, 2021)

    Perhaps many people are more nuanced and accept the nuances of Morrissey and Central. Or maybe those very last seats to go will be filled with Vegas goers who have been partying on the weekend in lesser restricted cities for months now. Either way, the venue is nonmasking as is half of the USA...

    Fiona Dodwell: "The poet without a home: Morrissey has been let down by the music industry" (May 31, 2021)

    I haven't read much of her writing, but she's only restating what many music writers have: that the industry is a total sham and a machine where everything is highly controlled from the artists to the production. We are left to listen to what the industry wants us to listen to. If that isn't...

    Morrissey Central "MORRISSEY NEW ALBUM" (May 30, 2021)

    Yet the social distance & maskless comments will likely help attract an audience and Vegas goers in general. Who cares about the media? He lost their adoration a long time ago. Got to do the PR for those shows.

    Morrissey Central "MORRISSEY NEW ALBUM" (May 30, 2021)

    I'll take your word on all of that. I just meant I doubt the media coverage would be much better if things were done differently. It's a case of which came first, the chicken or the egg?

    Morrissey Central "MORRISSEY NEW ALBUM" (May 30, 2021)

    This may be the theme of the song. Maybe. Kerouac is a tragic figure. To Granville Jones, Kerouac explained: “The vision of America is being destroyed now by the beatnik movement which is not the “beat generation” I proposed any more but a big move-in from intellectual dissident wrecks of all...

    Morrissey Central "MORRISSEY NEW ALBUM" (May 30, 2021)

    With his mother's death, he must've reflected on his young years with her by his side. The cover makes sense through that lense.

    What is Morrissey up to? (speculations)

    I read 😁 It's not a bad thing. We've had an entire year to read & think about nothing else.

    What is Morrissey up to? (speculations)

    He usually does the opposite of the Hollywood Celeb groupthink. No reason to believe he's changed. He hasn't started making online vids telling us all to get one or two. He can figure out that his risk of dying is around 1% and is especially low in the summer when he has his tour dates booked...
