    Postcard from Morrissey to Dave Haslam. Some of you may have seen this before. I recall Dave Haslam giving a talk entitled "I am critically maimed" at a convention some years ago.

      The handwriting of a child psychopath but the mind of a genius.

      DJ, noted author and all-around Manchester music institution Dave Haslam shared a charming artifact of rock n’ roll history on Tuesday when he tweeted a photo of the below postcard Morrissey sent him about a Smiths show in New York City on New Year’s Eve, 1983 - deathandtaxesmag.com

      Excerpt:

      Morrissey had to have been just 24 at the time. However, this is the drama we’ve come to expect from a man who recently put out a memoir where he names every teacher who was ever mean to him.

      30 years on - "reports of my death has been greatly understated."

      It's nice to know some things never change.

      (And doubling down with plagiarism to boot. Most impressive.)

      I believe this post-card is definitive proof that if Morrissey had a twitter account, it would be the funniest fucking thing ever. The man was Twittering by post before the internet even happened. That's called be a trend setter kids.
