  3. AUTOBIOGRAPHY by Morrissey

    My print version is on its way. Should have it in a week or so. But in the meantime I am going to start reading it as an eBook on my tablet. This is an ongoing post, updated regularly until I finish the book. Cover... First photos... Let the reading begin... Good morning. And indeed it is. After reading Moz's book in bed last night, I slept like a baby. Didn't want to put it down. But I knew I had a busy day up ahead. This is going to sound cliche, but the book is a page...
  4. Hilariously Depressing Smiths Lyrics ~ Part II

    This has been a re-commitment ceremony of sorts... this active listening and lyrics posting. In these last two weeks, I have listened to well over 200 Morrissey songs. My journey is now complete. So, what effect has it had upon my fandom, a friend recently asked? Well... I am going to give it a few days to marinate. And then I will let you know. Next Thursday, the 29th, I am going to see Morrissey 25: Live in Sedona. I plan to blog about my experience. Perhaps I will address the fandom...
  5. James Franco ~ Renaissance Man

    Some of us are so thick with talent, it's almost impossible to spread ourselves too thin. We are gifted with an endless supply of unbridled ability and a drive that keeps us moving fast forward. In the entertainment world, Justin Timberlake and Beyonce Knowles come to mind. Both are triple—maybe quadrupole—threats. They sing, dance, act, and are generally nice, polite, and likable people. Unfortunately, most of us aren't the caretakers of such gifts—myself included. I am not blessed with any...
  6. Fifty Shades of Grey Dream Cast

    I am going to play casting director and post my picks for who I think should play the characters in the soon to be made film adaptation of the book Fifty Shades of Grey. The list is ongoing and subject to change. Christian Grey: Alex Pettyfer Why? He's the hottest young actor out there right now. He has Christian's chiseled, gorgeous face, his lean, muscular bod, his generous height, and his messy hair. Plus he is fairly new on the scene and would be able to devote a few years to the...
  7. Olympics Closing Ceremony ~ A Screenshot Memoir of WTF? Moments

    After my seriously brain-draining last blog post about consciousness and other metaphysical stuff, I aim to keep this post light and ridiculously irrelevant. So, the London 2012 Olympics have come to a close. I can't provide much commentary on the games themselves as I only tuned into the men's and women's artistic gymnastics competitions. But as you may recall, I live-blogged the opening ceremony. For the closing ceremony, I have decided to post screen captures of my favorite visuals as...
  8. Christopher Hitchens ~ Still Loving You

    *Update September 24, 2012 ~ Just finished Mortality. It is a short book... can be read in one or two sittings. I highly recommend it to all Hitchens fans and anyone else interested in the personal dialogue that goes on in one's head when dealing with cancer and terminal illness. The late, great Christopher Hitchens' book, Mortality, is being published posthumously on September 4, 2012. Remember, you too are mortal—hit me at the top of my form and just as things were beginning...
  9. Beautiful Baritones

    Sexy baritone voices. It's a primal attraction. These ten are my favorites. Eddie Vedder - Pearl Jam Listen to the sexiest voice on the planet! Tom Smith - Editors Listen to his sexy voice! Ian Curtis - Joy Division Listen to his hauntingly beautiful voice! Lewis Bowman - Chapel Club Listen to his amazing voice! Matt Berninger - The National Listen to his awesome voice! Michael Stipe - R.E.M. Listen to his fantastic voice! Morrissey - The Smiths Listen to his beautiful...

  12. Keanu Reeves is a Psychopath in My Own Private Idaho

    That's right, Keanu Reeves is a psychopath as the character, Scott Favor, in Gus Van Sant's film, My Own Private Idaho. More on this in a bit. But first... What do they call it when you view a movie again, many years later, and see it in a different light? Answer... proof that we can and do change. Our attitudes, perceptions, and values change over time. And this is a good thing. New information and evidence should have us reevaluating our positions. If not, what is the point of learning...
  13. Bradley Steyn vs. Steven Patrick Morrissey

    This is what I think happened. Moz hires Steyn to be his bodyguard or security staff member. Moz requests that David Tseng be removed from the queue line at the Santa Ana gig as he has imposed a lifelong ban on David attending his concerts. In his classic hyperbolic style, Morrissey and/or the tour manger, adds/asks Steyn, either while alone or in the presence of other security team members, if David "could get hurt" and "could be gotten rid of." Then they discussed how to get his home...
  14. Best Picture Nominees of 2013 w/Commentary

    Nine films are vying for the Oscar for Best Picture. As of tonight, I have now seen all nine. My 2014 Oscar Ballot Which film will win? My guess is 12 Years a Slave. Which do I wish to win? Nebraska. Just saw this film tonight. What a wonderful story with characters that cement themselves into both mind and heart. The black and white cinematography, by Phedon Papamichae, is breathtaking—reminiscent of Gianni Di Venanz's cinematography in Fellini's 8 1/2. Nebraska 8 1/2 Here are...
  15. The Ten Greatest Films of All Time ~ A List in Progress

    I really went on a tirade in my previous blog entry--slamming Sight & Sound's Fifty Greatest Films of all time 2012 list. But should I really be stirring up a storm if I have not actually seen all the movies in their list? Perhaps I shouldn't. Of course, no one has seen all movies made. And so anyone who has submitted a top ten list is guilty of doing this. For how can one know if a film is worthy or not of being in a top ten list, if one hasn't actually seen the film? Therefore, I am...
