You wouldn't hit a guy with glasses on, would you?
You set me up over a woman...a WOMAN!
That's all gentlemen, thank you.
Thank you, gentlemen, that's all.
Well, seeing as you've done nothing but stroke each others cocks rather than have this oh-so-legitimate discussion of Morrissey's career, I'll just assume it's been decided that you guys are smart and awesome and we're all ears. I'll be here in the corner menstruating if you have any questions.

I think some people were a little harsh on Mr Hate here. After all, Hate said nothing new he simply culled together ideas that a number of people in the music press and on here have been saying for the last five years.
The above reads, mostly, like a mission statement for the promo duties of Quarry and what happened when Moz played the game (to a degree)?-He really did his best, during this period. Quarry was his only really main stream lp, he toured like a mental person, went on a TV and press blitz-he got slated on here for "selling out" and other trite things.
My only REAL grumble is that the music is suffering over the last few LPs- his voice is still fantastic and he still has the magic BUT he seems to have got quite lazy in terms of words and ideas. Thats not to say his new music is rubbish because it isn't there are some fantastic songs on the last few lps but I do feel he does need a new music partner.
To say that Morrissey shouldn't write/record with people he feels comfy with but should instead write with "talented" music people..really does miss the point of Moz and his world.
You've really got a thing for Nicholson, Viva
Yeah but everything is negated by the site of Kathy Bates naked.
