Strange/unexpected Moz references?

Re: Guardian Music Podcast with Joey Barton

This isn't a reference to Morrissey, but I found this amusing and didn't know where else to post it.

In the "Batman" TV show episode, "Come Back, Shame" (November, 1966), the gang's hideout in an "old West" location (a TV backlot) has a mechanical Native American chief sharpening an axe blade sitting outside a saloon. A sign hanging around the thing's neck reads "Chief Crashing Bore". :)

The episode has some pretty funny digs at the movie "Shane", and stars Cliff Robertson of all people.

EDIT: Google informs me of the line in "Black Widow Strikes Again" (...hmmm...) from March 1967: "Black Widow: Dear heart, you may be caped, and you may be dynamic, but to me you are a crashing bore!"

Was Morrissey a fan of "Batman"?

Re: Guardian Music Podcast with Joey Barton

I was watching 'Roy' on CBBC the other day with my daughter

There was some nonsense going on about something or other, and it turned out that the naughty boys were from Crumlin school - made me think of 'Who Put the M' where Moz says he must be 5 parts Old Trafford and 5 parts Crumlin and then breaks into 'Irish Blood...'

Turns out that Roy is based in Crumlin http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RUIv7poWJFU

"If I was a pessimist I wouldn't get up, I wouldn't shave, I wouldn't watch Batman at 7.30am. Pessimists don't do that sort of thing" - 1988.

Not really unexpected I guess, considering the usual bandwagon jumping by the tabloids in Britain, but this is in today's Mirror. :mad:

Who wrote that article? Was it Tony Parsons?

Re: Guardian Music Podcast with Joey Barton

Yup, absolute dick that he is.

I knew it would be. The man is a devout Smiths/Morrissey obsessive grown bitter - he wrote for the NME in the late 70s/early 80s along with Paul Morley and that crowd of fellow Smiths fanatics, and he's interviewed Morrissey many, many times. It was Parsons who famously wrote, "Morrissey could invade Poland and I still wouldn't think he was a Nazi". I can't help feeling that he's jumping on this particular incident just because it's fashionable to hate Morrissey right now. I also can't read anything he writes about the Japanese disaster, because it's a matter of seconds before he starts discussing his Japanese wife and then that becomes the point of the story - as it did with this Morrissey snippet from last year:

http://www.morrissey-solo.com/conte...ng-Morrissey-in-the-June-GQ-(English-edition)

Parsons is riding the wave of the anti-Morrissey feeling at the minute, but like Maconie, Brian Reade, etc etc - he's a dyed-in-the-wool fan at heart.

Smiths fan or not, it's not just the anti-Morrissey comments I take exception to. It's also the rest of the drivel scattered right across the article.
Didn't know he was a Smiths fan, but I guess that makes matters even worse in this particular case. :straightface:

Just caught a bit of Hawksbee and Jacobs on Talksport and I just caught one of them saying "...he had an album called 'Southpaw', so is clearly a boxing fan". Anyone else hear it and know if they were talking about Moz? (and just f***ed up the album name)

"Watchdog" on BBC One just had about 5 Smiths references in 2 minutes. "Panic" playing in the background of a clip about rogue tradesmen(?), followed by one of the presenters saying "Meet the Smiths [...] heaven knows, they're miserable now".
