If it was a Morrissey t-shirt more people would recognize it. The kids these days don't know or care who the Smiths were.
 
It's a bit like that ''One of our attorneys is a Jew''-comment of that Alabama Senate candidate :)
 
Saw a Tom Chivers tweet (it's NOT NEWS) that made me think of Morrissey & the predicament he's ended up in.

if people seem slightly stupid, they’re probably just stupid. But if they seem colossally and inexplicably stupid, you probably differ in some kind of basic assumption so fundamental that you didn’t realize you were assuming it, and should poke at the issue until you figure it out.

It's from this tiny, but interesting, blog entry: https://slatestarcodex.com/2020/02/14/addendum-to-targeting-meritocracy/

Huge swathes of the left are getting alienated or cancelled by identity politics - if he wasn't so fond of extreme gestures, he could reach out & find himself in good company. But in the meantime, it would be nice if the press did some digging & stopped dismissing him as a racist. He's more about second-wave & queer theory (because obviously he'd like two things that are at loggerheads with each other).
 
Looks like lil' Sam will go on forever, posting "big successes" of his uncle. My god, why can't anyone see, that these "NEWS" or fake pics of Moz loving celebrities are part of the problem, as they are not the solution career-wise.
I do sometimes get the feeling Moz and Sam are trolling us with this stuff. They come on here (and we know at least some of the entourage do), see us all foaming at the mouth over it, rub their hands with glee at the dastardliness of it, then toddle off to find another clunking, desperate picture to upset us all. And if they can't find one, Sam does one of his 'special' Photoshops. Perverts.

I think its even sadder than trolling. It reminds me of a guy at my school in the late eighties (no it wasn't me) who stole a metal ruler from the Craft and Design Department and went round the playground one lunchtime slapping girls on the backside with it. After he did this to the same girl more than once, she turned round and started screaming and swearing at him. The whole playground stopped to listen. The guy in question stood there smiling because despite this girl (who was way out of his league) telling him what an absolute dick he was, he had her complete attention in a way he never would in any other situation.

But why do they have your attention? It's filler on a personal website. What's the hook????

Or roughly what do you all think the hook might be?

Yes Morrissey is exactly that type of reprobate with his attention seeking that loads of folks can see through clearly now to the wanker he is.

As Peppermint suggested in the post I responded to, I think there is no doubt that after uploading stuff on Morrissey Central, the nephew or his uncle then checks out sites like Morrissey Solo to see the response. And for them, indifference is far worse than being criticised.

I don't visit other artist/band related websites but is it normal to upload photos of song lyrics sprayed on a wall, pictures of tour date posters on a bus, photos of people gathered in a public place to mourn a well known sports personality and one has an artist/ group tattoo?

It depends on the purpose of the site. Central seems like a mish-mash of things that would be better delivered on other platforms. The pictures would be fine on insta. The interviews, reviews, obits & reminisces would be better on a proper blog. If he really has to wade into debates, then twitter is the place (it's a hellzone - but at least he would build some alliances & wouldn't be the easy target he is at the moment), Facebook is good for selling tickets & merch (but can also be a hellzone).

I can't imagine they've had a meeting about content pillars.
 
The ever confusing clash between socialists and black people who will never be best mates. White socialists wondering how a black person can promote someone like Moz but dare not criticise it.
There is real racism and then there is friendly racism from socialists.
And there's warm unconditional acceptance from For Britain excusers and Libertarian types....as long as you choose to be to be window-dressing or dead and unable to express concern for your likeness for cynical tokenism. Yeah. And The Three Bears.
 
And when you've got For Britain groupies liking your casual but closeted and self-serving bigotry, that says more than plenty about you and the company you keep in itself.
 
A Smiths t-shirt NOT Morrissey t-shirt. This is f***ing desperate stuff. Is Morrissey going to post photos of all of those from ethnic origins wearing Smiths t-shirt to somehow validate himself?
Morrissey didn't post shit moron. What do think he's the webmaster over at Morrissey central?
 
For a so called photographer to use someone's else's photo on instagram without any acknowledgment or credit tells you everything about his so called professionalism. He hasn't got a clue about photography.
 
Lighten up, for Heavens sake just the fact that an Afro American Basketball Player circa 2020 is wearing such a shirt is an honor to Morrissey and his legacy. Lighten up!!
 
Plenty of folk wear Smiths t-shirts. From those happy days when The Smiths played Red Wedge, and hated right-wingers. How times change. The subtext here: "Look - a brown person wearing something associated with Morrissey. How can he be a bigoted goon? Buy my tickets."

I like that you always reveal your own prejudice. Your only view of black people seems to be that they are props. First with Thelma dueting with Moz, now this. You think so little of black people that you feel they are too stupid to know if they are being used or not..
Also Morrissey grew out of being stuck picking LvR like it's a team
