  1. Hilariously Depressing Smiths Lyrics ~ Part I

    I love twisted things... things that are dark and dramatic and depressing yet humorous as well. When it comes to music, nobody, I mean NOBODY, writes depressing lyrics that are so belly-laughing funny, like Morrissey does. This is his greatest charm... attraction... what makes me love his music so much. I will listen to each Smiths album in its entirety, including the B-sides off the singles, and decide what I think is a hoot--in my current frame of mind. It is interesting how our take...

  4. 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...
  5. 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...
  6. 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...
  7. Hilariously Depressing Moz Lyrics ~ Solo Albums Part II of II

    This is Part II. Albums Southpaw Grammar - Viva Hate. See Part I here. I will listen to each album in its entirety, including the B-sides off the singles (and other tracks released, sung around that time), and decide what I think is a hoot--in my current frame of mind. It is interesting how our take on a song changes with the seasons. We may not have found certain things funny ten years ago... such as growing old, until we can relate to it ourselves, perhaps. Of course, there are...
  8. Perfect Albums

    (*Update August 2013 - Fixed broken links. Will periodically check links for functionality.) These are the albums I love because every single song on each of them is a masterpiece. I am not a music elitist so some of my favorite albums are actually reissues and repackages... singles, best of's etc. The reason that I have so many Smiths albums and just one Morrissey album--besides the best of's--is because I feel that their music was more consistent. There isn't a Smiths song that I don't...
  9. World Peace is None of Your Business ~ Single

    Just downloaded WPINOYB. Amazing track. Have it on repeat. Love the chorus. And the ending is wonderful. Am so excited to hear the rest of this album. :)
  10. 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...
  11. Somebody That I Used To TrollParody

    Thanks to troubleluvsme for posting this on the forum. Hilarious. Relevant. Accurate. Priceless. Video: Somebody That I Used To Troll—Parody LYRICS Now and then I think of something very clever Like when I said you were so crappy you should die My name is BigAndSexy123 So I have online anonymity I seek attention with a name you will remember I could be convicted of a certain kind of madness Like making comments to offend, always offend I told you that your failure was...
  12. Return

    Been Listening to The Cure's Disintegration... this is the effect... Collapse Sappy silly school-girl giddy Weepy willowy must be sleepy Deeply feeling death knocking But don't bring flowers just yet Only thoughts in my head Will dissipate with rest Untitled And The Cure's Wish Cracked Head guarding heart So well, you can Barely tell Underneath the Hardened shell Is a soft cell Gently cracked Open, no longer Closed Vulnerable Fragile, parts Exposed...
  13. California Dreaming

    I miss the ocean. While I do love the mountains and rocks surrounding me, I am sadly landlocked here in Sedona. I've toyed with the idea of moving back to Florida—I have family there. And the Tampa Bay area has a wonderful boating community. Unless the ocean returns to the desert basin, I'm out of luck, as far as boating goes here. What about California? It has it all. I use to live in San Francisco and loved it there. But honestly, I prefer the warmer climate down south. I've gotten...
