      Don't accuse me of having a closed heart. Issue #1 for him is animals, correct?
      Supporting a festival that may as well have meat in the name is ridiculous. Why he would lend his time and his name to this is anyone's guess. Perhaps he will do a 40 minute long version of MIM (everyone would be poorer for it) but with his propensity for releasing grand statements, why not a grand statement over a meat-centric festival? Perhaps he'll make one the day of, but I fear it will be lost on people with bellies filled with carnitas, el pastor, pollo, lengua, chorizo, carne asada, and hit home with the few who have bellies full of papas.

      You should never let clowns represent serious issues. That was so bad as to be funny.

      If you read his last statement with a heart that is open, I think one could figure that he himself now realizes that
      there is only so much one can do, and that his past strategy of distancing himself has not worked as he once thought it would.

      So no, it may be better to get in there and point out the ignorance of people’s choices rather than not be there.

      Resignation isn't a good look either. When you live and die on a particular hill for your entire career,
      followed by eventual surrender, (partial or whole) you damage the very cause you fight for.
      I guess it comes down to this- surely there must have been another festival that would have taken him?
      Because I imagine if you told Morrissey in 1985 that he'd be headlining a taco festival in 2018, that there's a good chance Ian Curtis wouldn't have been the most famous Mancunian to reach the end of his rope in his 20s.

      Yes, but stating the obvious to Brummie Boy is a lost cause ( see his reply :crazy: ). Anyways ....

      'I don't eat animals, birds or fish. I don't consider myself to be vegan, vegetarian or carnivorous. I'm just me.'

      was an interesting answer. I think he's just fed up with labels and choices he has made in general, such as taking a stance to not play Canada for so long, then realizing this choice is not making much difference.

      Edit :

      oh BB, it only hurts because it's true.

      The only kind of person who would make such an ignorant statement about Inuit tradition and sustenance is someone who's not bothered to research beyond what they've been told.

      I'm not going to hold your hand here and guide you through the fucking facts. Do some research. Check out a little on the history of these indigenous people. Take a tiny breath and get your head out of your self-righteous asshole.

      If you're basing your opinion on information you've gleaned from the wonky drivel spewed by PETA, Morrissey or other propagandist bullshitters you see on this - you're completely lost in your microcosm.

      Morrissey is a half-baked, shit-talking hypocrite. He spouts bullshit and his minions hop on board the train to historically quantifiable intellectual oblivion.

      Not a fucking CLUE about the realities of the past, present or future of wild animal stocks. Not a fucking care in the world for entire, remote communities with differing lifestyles, traditions or survival options.

      ...but the lot of you have closets FULL of cotton and synthetic garments made by child-slave labourers in foreign countries. EVERY SINGLE FUCKING ONE OF YOU.

      You can't pony up the personal responsibility to check readily available facts and insist on this continuous spouting of self-righteous nonsense, ethical pomposity, "clubbing" (it's called a hakapik) etc. You haven't the foggiest. You're a mindless, bubble-dwelling sucker.

      You bet I blame Morrissey, among others, for spreading this nonsense about the annual seal hunt. ...and if his sorry ass tries to pop back up around these parts, I guarantee he's in for a proper schooling. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to do a bit of research, in pursuit of reality.

      Morrissey had better do his before he sets foot on this soil again. ...and the first words out of his white-bred, spoon-fed, slack-jawed, pussy-ass, mama's boy mouth had better be an apology for his fucking complete and utter ignorance.

      Have a nice day! ;)

      Yeah, I never thought the small number of Canadian fans being able to see his shows there would affect government policy o_O

      You see it the way you want.

      ' resignation' ?

      ' surrender ' ?

      ' damage' ?

      You must be joking.

      It's called changing ones strategy.

      And I'm hoping you weren't making a joke of someones suicide.

      Open your heart g23.

      ...and backpedaling on his decision in the hopes of a pension top-up will not serve him well here. He might be able to sell out a venue with under 1000 capacity in Toronto or Vancouver. You can always spot a vegan in those cities. ...and if you can't spot them, they'll tell you.

      The rest of the country will just laugh him off, as the fake-ass, try-hard, self-absorbed turd that he is.

      Wanna place a friendly wager on it?

      The Arctic Inuit it is true only kill what they need to survive and use all of the animal. Not so with the commercial seal hunt on the east coast which is basically a blood bath where only seals under 2weeks are left alive.
      The Canadian government have poured hundreds of millions of dollars into trying to make this "tradition" a commercial success - to no avail.
      92% of the seals body is wasted.
      But it still continues.
      It's not surprising the word culture contains Cult. Some traditions are just an excuse for blatant cruelty and the original necessity for physical survival is long gone.
      Animals wild or otherwise aren't "stock". They show far more nature than a lot of humans.

      Too soon on the Ian Curtis front? Give me a break, please. If I offended Deborah or Natalie Curtis, I'll apologize, but to the rest of the world, I think enough time has passed that an Ian Curtis suicide joke isn't the worst thing on Earth. There's far bigger atrocities than a confused young man stuck between two loves and the wrong prescription.

      But as for Carne Asada and other delights, I'll see how this change of strategy plays out. Time will tell.
