  1. Blogging Moz Live(ish)

    Tonight's the night baby! Me. Mom. Moz. Marquee. Leaving work at 3:30 PM. Will check into hotel in Tempe, go out for some drinks and tapas, then head to the venue. Don't need to be the first folks there. Not sure what kind of pics I'll get. Nothing worth posting on the tour thread, I'm sure. But I'll share what I get here. Soon Mom will find out what all the fuss is about. BTW, it's 86 F in Phoenix. I bet Moz is loving it!
  2. Moz at the Marquee

    Updates at Bottom. Wasn't sure I was up for a concert after the Manchester and Las Vegas tragedies. But I have been listening to Moz's new tracks all day at work-laughing my tail off. And I am in a good mood so I decided, what the hey, I am gonna take David to see Moz at the Marquee in Phoenix on November 16. Heck he lives there and I am only an hour and half away. I can leave after work, spend the night in Phoenix, then go into work later the next afternoon. I am meeting him in Sedona...
  3. The Unanswered Moz Questions

    There is a new Moz book being released in May that claims to have the answers to all my questions. Preposterous. Think it will answer these? When was the last time Moz ate cheese? Does Moz still wear leather shoes? Does he read the forums at Morrissey-Solo? What does he think of the phrase cheese is murder? Did Moz have a crush on Johnny? Did he sleep with Johnny? Is Morrissey really bi? Is Damon bi? Did Moz sleep with Tina? What does Tina think about the less than flattering...
  4. Is World Peace is None of Your Business a Concept Album?

    The album, World Peace is None of Your Business, is about human agency—particularly the structures which limit it. Human agency is the capacity for humans to make choices. In World Peace is None of Your Business, Morrissey describes numerous situations where agency is limited or influenced by structures outside of one's control. Many of the songs address society's pressure to make individuals conform. Several other songs concern themselves with freedom: how much and how little the...

  6. 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...
  7. What a Wonderful World

    [MEDIA=youtube]2nGKqH26xlg[/MEDIA] Don't you agree? Smile. Think of the good things in your life, in the world. The glass is more than half full. Life is short and you only get one chance. Make it the best you can. Tell mom you love her. Give your kid(s) a hug. Call that friend you haven't spoken to in years. Say hi to a stranger. Most of all, love yourself. You ARE lovable and special. I see trees of green, red roses too. I see them bloom, for me and you. And I think to myself,...
  8. Have Yourself a Merry Little Insomnia

    What's to do when suffering with insomnia? Why, watch Christmas videos on YouTube, of course. Growing up, my brother and I's favorite Christmas flick was The Year Without a Santa Claus. This song is a riot... Mr. Snow Miser/Mr. Heat Miser Song ... [MEDIA=youtube]hGRkNaMFp6w[/MEDIA]"][MEDIA=youtube]hGRkNaMFp6w[/MEDIA] From Santa Claus is Coming to Town...

  9. Desert Life... and Shoes

    *Update ~ Just added an audio capture of the coyotes howling outside my window. Scroll down and click howling link. Its early... 6:40 AM. I woke at 5:00 AM. Oh don't ask why. It is chilly this morning. Yesterday was the first day since April that I have not run the air conditioner. Fall... is it finally here? It's hard to tell. This desert life is a strange one indeed. Hot summers. Cold winters. Coyotes howling outside my window at night. Thank goodness my Katie is a house cat. Otherwise...

  11. On My Knees ~ Literally

    Want to see me on my knees? Knee boarding, that is? I finally edited an old video file down to a smaller size so that I could upload it onto YouTube. The footage was taken in the late 90s on Lake Odessa in Tampa, Florida. My ex-fiance, Rich, and I rented a house on the lake. We called it the picker shack because it was so old and worn down. We only made our home there because we lived to go boating, tubing, and knee boarding. We were obsessed. Plus it was pretty close to the university I was...
  12. 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...
  13. 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...
