Moz taking over....????

Having been a Moz fan now for 6 years, (i first saw him aged 16 in 2002) I have started to worry that I'm getting a bit obsessive. Dedication and fervour is part of being a Morrissey follower I suppose, but sometimes I catch a sight of myself in the mirror (clad in a kill uncle t-shirt) and I think I've gone too far. I love music but I'm finding it harder to enjoy anthing else but Moz's back catalogue, I watch Live In Dallas, Who Put the M, and Hulmerist far too much, I get excited when there are new stories on moz-solo, I scour every music publication for anything Moz/smiths related, I would rather spend money on my moz/smiths collection than buy myself new clothes,I talk about Moz to anyone who will listen, and lately I can't help but feel that Moz is pretty much the only person who speaks any sense about life. everything else apart from the morrissey creed has become irrelevant. I do go out with friends, enjoy football and am about to finish my english degree but nothing compares with having a couple of pints and slipping vauxhall and I into the record player....


is this normal??!!!!

Haha I think you sound wicked. I wish you were at Warwick, where we have a committed but small mud-coloured cardigan-wearing brigade ;)

Most people decide to find my obsession charming - it sounds like you are the same as you have friends to go out with. I say whatsa your problem? :)

It'd be worse if you hadn't discovered someone that speaks sense to you about your life and the world, would it not?

No, but it's alright. Who said that "normal" is better anyway.

Have to disagree on this one as I am obsessed with music in general and discover new acts to enjoy every single day, but apart from that I'm with you.
I get excited when there are new stories on moz-solo
Yes
I scour every music publication for anything Moz/smiths related,
Yes
I would rather spend money on my moz/smiths collection than buy myself new clothes
I actually literally payed for my smiths vinyl collection with my stupid designer clothes. (i.e. took it down to the second hand and got vouchers to spend in their record exchange store)
I talk about Moz to anyone who will listen
And even those who won't
and lately I can't help but feel that Moz is pretty much the only person who speaks any sense about life.
Well, not the only one, but he certainly is one of the very few who does and he also knows his ways with the words to communicate it effectively.

I guess some people just have the type of personality when they easily get obsessed with things. (And I believe the Man himself is one of them). And who said it's better to be obsessed with horse-racing or collecting antique or plane spotting or clothes or sudoku. Whatever makes sense for you really and as long as it makes you happy it's perfectly fine. :)

Listening to Vauxhall beats socialising any day of the week. Trust me, you're fine. ;)

I wouldn't worry about it! I'm almost 38 and I've had it since I was about 16. He's the most consistently brilliant artist of our age, in any field, that I can think of. Definitely worth the effort. And what pleases me more than anything is that whereas most artists loose their drive and talent and relevance, Morrissey remains consistanly and exceptionally fine. Why Ringleader wasn't in the album awards that Arctic Monkeys won I can not understand. I mean, the Arctic Monkeys are just a clean version of the Libertines aren't they? Who's going to listen to that a year from now? Or am I too old to get it? I don't wear the t shirts and I don't even have a friend who cares that much for him but I feel very lucky to be born at the right time to enjoy The Smiths and here he is, still singing new songs. What joy.
 
I'm obsessive about morrissey myself but i dont mind ,my mother thinks i'm in love with him but that is not the case! i sometimes have difficulty trying to convince myself he isnt actually my father

awww -- those were great sentiments! Nothing to be ashamed of, dear - Moz/Smiths are one of those artists that get under your skin whether you want them to, or not.

It may not be "conventional" as the poster above said, but who really cares about what is considered normal?? Its your life - live it the way you want and as long as you aren't hurting anyone, you should do what pleases you, right? Anyway, listening to Vauxhall sounds like a lovely way to spend an afternoon.

It's nothing to worry about. There's always someone worser.

...Atleast no one has quoted "The Youngest Was the Most Loved" yet, pweh.

I think if you're listening to practically nothing but Morrissey and are talking about him excessively after six years, you need to take a break. Realise he's just a man. He shits, ejaculates, belches, felches (possibly), and is no demigod.

Obsessions are like lens you use to watch and filter all other aspects of life.
There is nothing wrong with them, plus, they don't last forever. If you're faithfully devoted to one and only one obsession for all your life, then you are a Saint. And that's a good thing. I suppose.

El Manzo's list of obsessions:

1972 - 1979: My parents
1979 - May 2000: Music
June 2000-October 2000: Girls (especially Fr*****ca)
October 2000-until the end: Music

My friends are all so relieved I now have a computer with the internet so I can talk to people who actually care about Morrissey, and whos eyes don't glaze over every time I mention that I saw him in Leeds. At a standing gig. On the third night of his tour. An entire month before the London gigs!!!! Oh God, I'm even annoying myself now.....
