    The dreadful state of UK ticket sales

    Thanks for an intelligent and sensitive response. I'll have to be brief for now. My take on the "openly offensive" phrase was roughly as follows: Apart from it being a parroting of what has become a kind of Pavlovian vocabulary in certain quarters (i.e., words to use when you're on...

    The dreadful state of UK ticket sales

    I am surprised that Morrissey is touring the UK at all. I don't find the content of the article surprising, though, as someone who has been a fan of Morrissey since the days of The Smiths, I find it sad. It wasn't so long ago that Mozzer was second only to Attenborough as a national icon and...

    Morrissey Central: "SETTING SUNS BEFORE THEY FALL ECHO TO YOU ‘THAT’S ALL, THAT’S ALL’…"

    Yeah, that's clearly a pretty tasteless photo montage promotional thing, entirely lacking in any kind of grace. Yes, I am a Morrissey fan, but I'm not blind.

    Morrissey announces European & UK 2020 tour dates (Leeds, Cologne, Paris, London on sale Jan. 24)

    Yes!!! I fully intend to support the Moz on this tour in defiance of the woke zombies that now presume to be running our culture.

    Morrissey Central: "New Morrissey Album" - 'I Am Not A Dog On A Chain' (November 28, 2019)

    I'm actually really curious about this album. Of course, Moz is completely lacking in objectivity in terms of his own creative output, and has been saying each album is his best since You Are the Quarry at the very latest, but I can't help wondering whether recent severity towards him in the...

    How Do We Move Forward When Every Artist We Love Is ‘Problematic’? by Jared Richards - Junkee

    Hmmm. I seem to have acquired a dedicated follower, by the name of Trill.

    How Do We Move Forward When Every Artist We Love Is ‘Problematic’? by Jared Richards - Junkee

    Also: "supporting an abuser is one thing, but what about someone with disappointing views?" Am I reading this right? I mean, in one sense this doesn't surprise me, since we're all familiar with the warped views of the Woke by now, but in another sense, the way this wording can be slipped in so...

    How Do We Move Forward When Every Artist We Love Is ‘Problematic’? by Jared Richards - Junkee

    For God's sake - human beings are problematic. Don't these people realise that? Or do they think they're all perfect and can go around being shocked at everyone else?

    Mike Scott (The Waterboys) on Morrissey's merchandise

    I don't support everything he says. For instance, if anyone was bored enough to look through my comments on this site, they'd find I have criticised Morrissey for throwing out the protestor in Portland (which relates to your free-speech comment, I think). Also, I'm not alt-right. Maybe you...

    Mike Scott (The Waterboys) on Morrissey's merchandise

    Disappointed in Mike Scott jumping on the virtue-signalling bandwagon. So easy, so empty.

    "Open Letter to the LA Times re Morrissey" - For Britain

    Bloody hilarious, I get a dislike from the guy who's supposedly telling me to keep an open mind. I think we can fairly describe that as 'bad faith'.

    "Open Letter to the LA Times re Morrissey" - For Britain

    I'm no longer persuaded by people merely dropping 'right-wing' into a conversation as if it's a sign saying, "Turn back!" But no, I haven't made up my mind.

    "Open Letter to the LA Times re Morrissey" - For Britain

    I was wondering this. I couldn't find any photos of her on the For Britain website, either. The open letter does seem to be correct, however, in saying that the Wikipedia page relating to For Britain is locked, which rather raises the question of whether there is a failure of debate here. Is...

    what made you frown today?

    I don't know if 'frown' is the right word, but something made me sad. I often refer to the website Passions Just Like Mine to look up Morrissey/Smiths lyrics: http://www.passionsjustlikemine.com/index.htm I have done so for years, in fact. But I looked just now, to read the lyrics for 'Home Is...

    Morrissey Central: "The Guardian of Hate" (October 10, 2019)

    Hmmm. Is there actually an article calling for Mozzer's death in the Guardian? Or even one that can be interpreted in that way? Much as I dislike the Guardian, this seems like an overreaction, and if one is going to insist on the importance of free speech, there is at least a question as to why...

    Morrissey Central: "New PETA Ad" (23 September, 2019)

    I appreciate your answering in good faith. There's nothing in your reply that, let's say, rattles me - in other words, that I feel a strong need to disagree with. I think what you're talking about is precisely why veganism is important and constitutes the more sober and serious case for it. I...

    Morrissey Central: "New PETA Ad" (23 September, 2019)

    No, as I said, I appreciate people trying to live their principles. It looks to me like you're paraphrasing in order to make it sound like I wrote something I didn't so that you can dismiss it without thought. I didn't say it was a point that hadn't been made before, either. Plenty of people...

    Morrissey Central: "New PETA Ad" (23 September, 2019)

    There's an obvious flaw with this, which is the flaw in veganism in general. Let me just say, I'm not being snarky. I admire that people have principles, but there's a contradiction here that I have never seen adequately addressed. It's true that we're all animals. What we're supposed to take...
