    Matt Stocks YT: "Life In The Stocks" #88 Boz Boorer (1st aired 2019 / YT upload: August 11, 2021)

    I'm glad to hear an interview with Boz, but this podcast needs some structure and editing. I had no idea who was talking at first, the episode just starts with no introduction or context (not even the name of the show?), and there's all these long dead pauses.

    Morrissey Central "THE BOYS IN THE BAND" (July 19, 2021)

    Woh, you're right. You really have disillusioned me. I'm going to renounce all of my musical opinions, throw away the hundreds of songs I've written and knowledge about songwriting I've acquired over decades, and take a good long look in the mirror.

    Morrissey Central "THE BOYS IN THE BAND" (July 19, 2021)

    Thanks. The thing about my list is that is almost every song Tobias has done with Morrissey (there have been a lot of rare ones recently but I don't know who wrote those.) So to my ears he's been a very consistently good (or great) collaborator. And I had no idea he made a lot of those songs...

    Morrissey Central "THE BOYS IN THE BAND" (July 19, 2021)

    Easily. Tobias songs I like or love. It is beyond me why any Morrissey fan would detest these songs with the rage of a thousand suns so much. They're great: You Have Killed Me The Youngest Was The Most Loved In The Future When All Is Well On The Streets I Ran (one of my all time favorite...

    Morrissey Central "THE BOYS IN THE BAND" (July 19, 2021)

    The hatred for Jesse around here seems completely absurd and deranged to me. What are all of your problems with him? I love a lot of the songs he co-wrote. You all speak as if he did you some sort of personal harm.

    Zack Snyder's recollection of making "Tomorrow" promo video

    Oh I can talk about this all day. Snyder is a deft visual stylist, but it happens to be something I find aesthetically ugly. Like I'd never deny Snyder is an artist. He has a singular, how you say, Snyder-esque vision, from his visuals to his themes and etc. I just totally dislike them! And I...

    Zack Snyder's recollection of making "Tomorrow" promo video

    I agree completely. Did Whedon hit it out of the park? Of course not, but probably nobody could in that totally awkward, messy scenario. WB's DC movies and organization had been a complete mess, so what could you expect? I also agree that Whedon is a more talented filmmaker. The episodes of his...

    Zack Snyder's recollection of making "Tomorrow" promo video

    We actually don't know who edited the film. It's unlikely Whedon did, as he's not an editor (that I know of.) It is more feasible that the executives at higher levels (higher than Whedon) supervised the editing and made a lot of those decisions. Perhaps Whedon was involved too, but nobody knows...

    “Everyone Is Horrid Except Me (And Possibly You)” Gets Officially Released (May 11, 2021)

    And here we have a song written by comedy writers that is nowhere near as funny as any of Morrissey's songs.

    Johnny Marr video - "Girl Afraid"

    It just astonishes me every time seeing him do this stuff. Especially as somebody who is a much worse guitar player than him.

    Official Facebook Peter Katsis: Simpsons Responses (April 19, 2021)

    Well, I watched the episode. It did seem unusually hateful for a Simpsons parody. Like the writer actually really despises Morrissey and wants to destroy him. It's not a nice look for the show. Like I said, the new writers or whatever is going on there, the tone of the show has been changing for...

    Official Facebook Peter Katsis: Simpsons Responses (April 19, 2021)

    I just read the list. It's light on nuance and seems to not understand several of Morrissey's admittedly controversial points. Others lead you to playing a Google game to have to confirm if the people they say are "alt right" or "racist" really are, and guess what? Not convinced. I'm fine with...

    Yes, I'd argue 5 years ago there was a spectrum, now it's "you're either with us or against us." I've lost some friends to this.

    I think immigration is a complex issue, different in every country, and I absolutely hate when people think those who want to talk about its complexities and potential drawbacks in the here and now are racist, and there is some really unbelievable things happening in the UK to hide any...

    Official Facebook Peter Katsis: Simpsons Responses (April 19, 2021)

    I genuinely don't know what you're angry about here. Does the word itself bother you? Like I said, "for lack of a better word", but how would you define it? I'm all for better ideas. The trend in the Simpsons writers room (and other tv shows too) is a real thing. I've actually watched all the...

    Official Facebook Peter Katsis: Simpsons Responses (April 19, 2021)

    I don't exactly agree, no. I'm a bit conflicted on the Morrissey issue. I truly don't understand his views 100% but they've never seemed "racist" to me. I think many people think he's racist (and couldn't tell you a single quote from him) because everyone says he is, and it's just going by its...

    Official Facebook Peter Katsis: Simpsons Responses (April 19, 2021)

    I don't know who that is. I've just been watching the show and making my own observations about it. Even somebody pro-wokeness would probably agree. It's all right there in the writing. Like a lot of TV shows, there is a big batch of new young angry writers who want to cater to a young angry...

    They've been like this for about 3 or 4 years. It started creeping in (Bart spraypainting to topple the patriarchy or whatever) and is popping up more and more in the show. As a longtime fan and someone who has regrettably seen every episode, it's pretty bizarre. I consider wokeness the...

    Referring to me? For me it's a "for lack of a better word" sort of term. It's contentious but it aptly describes an ideology and a type of person that I think everyone innately understands. What would you define it as?

    Official Facebook Peter Katsis: Simpsons Responses (April 19, 2021)

    There has seemingly been a wave of young woke writers who have taken over the show in the past few years. I've noticed a lot of weird and awkward moments in the show where it was clearly "let's show how woke we are!" and had nothing to do with the story. Lisa complaining that "women have to...
