Please visit the page for our upcoming feature documentary "Jobriath A.D." about 70s glam rock singer Jobriath. It would be great if you could post this link for the Morrissey fans on here, as I'm sure they would be interested in hearing about it. The link is for our kickstarter page, which also includes a link within to our facebook fan page. Thanks much.

Kewpie sends the link to the post in the forums by scottishblood (via Morrissey reddit):

Just saw this trailer for the new George Clooney film "Up in the air". The music is a cover of "Lost" sung by Lisa Redford I don't really like it, Morrissey would have been so much better.

Starring: George Clooney, Vera Farmiga, Anna Kendrick
From Jason Reitman, the Oscar nominated director of Juno, comes a comedy called Up in the Air starring OscarĀ® winner George Clooney as Ryan Bingham, a corporate downsizing expert whose cherished life on the road is threatened just as he is on the cusp of reaching ten million frequent flyer miles and just after he's met the frequent-traveler woman of his dreams.

'Lost' written by Morrissey performed by Lisa Redford

Hi, not sure if this is relevant to this site but this girl has a pretty cool idea. she's singing every Smiths song and she has a pretty good voice too. I found out about it through last.fm because she posted a link in a morrissey forum. not sure it it's news worthy but it's interesting!

Morrissey mentioned in William Gibson novel
Morrissey is mentioned in the William Gibson novel Spook Country. The fictional heroine is the former lead singer with the band Curfew, she has since became a journalist and is caught by Cuban spies whilst investigating a story, one of the protagonists on realising she is a pop star exclaims `at least it`s not Morrissey`

I think Morrissey would have approved.

Last year while Morrissey was playing at the Pageant anything related with meat around him, not even a hot dog stand. Thanks to Morrissey, the Pageant is now nominated for "Best Concert Venue" by peta2.
