Grunge YT: "The Really Messed Up Truth About Morrissey" (December 26, 2019)


As the lead singer for The Smiths, Morrissey was an unparalleled lyricist who helped create several timeless classics like "Ask" and "How Soon Is Now?" More recently, he's arguably become more famous for his wince-inducing soundbites than his solo output. Here are some messed-up details about Morrissey. Pro tip, amateur writers! The next time you find yourself plagued by self-doubt, take solace in the fact that your work can't be any worse than Morrissey's debut novel. List of the Lost was published in 2015, hot on the heels of Morrissey's autobiography. The book was was widely panned and endlessly ridiculed for reasons that will soon become all too apparent. In its breathtakingly scathing review, The Quietus wrote that, "What you’re actually looking at is some of the most heinously overblown prose printed by a major publishing house in living memory." Aside from its general awfulness, List of the Lost caught the world's attention thanks to a particularly cringe-inducing scene, one that tried to convey a theoretically steamy lovemaking session. Don't believe us? You should probably savor the passage for yourself. How's this for purple prose? "Eliza and Ezra rolled together into the one giggling snowball of full-figured copulation, screaming and shouting as they playfully bit and pulled at each other in a dangerous and clamorous rollercoaster coil of...violent rotation...and the pained frenzy of his bulbous salutation extenuating his excitement as it smacked its way into every muscle of Eliza's body except for the otherwise central zone." Oooh… is it getting hot in here? No. No, it's not.

Grunge is dead and won’t be remembered. Morrissey on the other hand will live on and will be changing people’s lives for the better for all eternity.



Haters gonna hate.


Lovers gonna love.

in list of the lost (a work of fiction), he didnt offer them the misogynist porn they are used to nowadays. seems this triggered the rest of this very weird video.

Exactly. Morrissey quite naturally refuses to do what is expected of him, in art or in life.

The haters can’t keep him in the box they want to put him in, it bothers them that Morrissey is not and never will be like the rest of the human race.

Grunge is just another crashing bore and they are the same everywhere.

It’s Skinny.
 
List of The Lost should have been a novel about all the things Moz loved and lost down through the years since his earliest memories (toys), teenage years (his father, hope), adult years and how he found them all again in some way or other. A nostalgic semi autobiographical tour de force.

Anyone claiming Morrissey was attempting to do anything other than make sex seem ridiculous in 'that scene' in List of the Lost is either wilfully or actually stupid.
yeah agreed though modern lit and publishing isn’t exactly having a high moment right now. The idea that they are stupid or in my opinion extremely cloistered living in a compartmentalized bubble. It seems people have lost the ability to look beyond the surface
