    goodbye Gore. and thankyou.

    shame about the 9/11 spat with Hitchens.

    i wonder what age Morrissey was when he first plucked you from the library shelf.

    I posted about it on reddit earlier. Gore Vidal was a genius, and his influence shows in Moz's work, its completely obvious in the pen-pal letters with Mackie. Closest thing America's had to an Oscar Wilde.

    I agree with all you say, but it's unlikely to be developed as a theme today. Apparently a 'moderator' has decided this crucial link between Morrissey's entire worldview and that of Gore Vidal is 'off-topic'. Clearly, some moderators have an extremely limited understanding of Morrissey in particular and modern cultural trail-blazers in general.

    Regards.

    Gore wasn't 'off-topic' in 2004.

    Gore Vidal was a great man and thinker.

    Hitchens lost credibility with me the moment he because an apologist for authoritarianism once it fit his own agenda [you don't have to support aggressive wars to not support Islam]. This is a great problem with many purported leftists.

    Here's an interesting piece on Vidal from the American news program 60 Minutes. It's from July 1975. The footage is cool timewarp fun. Hope the Brits can see it.

    The first time I became aware of Gore Vidal was from his excellent performance in Tim Robbins's delightful political satire/mockumentary film "Bob Roberts".

    Gore Vidal played a genteel, Kennedy-esque, elder statesman Senator running for re-election against a fast-talking right-wing
    conservative folk singer.

    For a film that was released in 1992, it's still very relevant.

    real big fan of his work, sad to see him go, but 86 is a pretty good run
    also, wondering if we might get a little sound bite from Moz about him(Gore V) sometime in the near future
    I suppose then he would "qualify" for the GD

    I asked BrummieBoy and he said that information about his reading habits is 'classified'.

    He asks you to note the comparision between Gore's original work and the 'film' which traduced it:

    http://deadspin.com/5930811/gore-vid...vies-ever-made

    He further remarked that a similar comparison exists between Morrissey's 'authentic' oevure and the remix-mash up of his persona on this site which has, of course, reduced Morrissey to a figure of ridicule amongst the cognoscenti. He believes that Morrissey has concealed his obsession with Vidal as well as he has his adulation of Cohen.

    Gore Vidal has not died. He lives on........

    LBJ: corn-pone Genghis Khan....so that's where Kunstler sourced the Clusterfuck.

    wonder if he managed to service LBJ:

    JFK on LBJ: "you know, Lyndon's very active" lol!

    this 'pinko commie fag' is the only man who's ever made me wish I wasn't a Brit.....prescient on Peak Oil towards the end, didn't realise the Wall Street fraudsters would find a way to fund 'Morning in America'.

    priceless footage.

    While there are many similarities between Vidal and Morrissey, I think one essential difference is that Morrissey believes in love. He may say he doesn't, but he does. That is not fangurl projection, that is my opinion based on his poetic catalogue.

    Morrissey 'loves' his audience, his co-dependent partners in social narcissism. It's a cult.

    Vidal loved sex.

    Morrissey's 'Roman Holiday' was an attempt to follow in Gore's footsteps. I'm surprised Morrissey let Sting buy the gaff at Ravello, but I guess he had to pay the bills for his High Court vanities. In a 100 years time, Vidal will still be the front page, Morrissey will be a footnote.
