    the guy who has the Holywood dvd posted 2 posts above yours. It is Mikael who is unwilling to share the dvd. Igornant nasty basterds such as himself should not be allowed on here. Why even be part of a community or forum if you don't even tend to share to other users? People like him should be instantly disliked by every single member of this forum. I don't understand why anybody would defend such people?

    Probably because you're telling us what to do. I'll dislike who I want to dislike, thank you very much. I don't have any particular inclination toward mikael, but you both seem pretty childish. Sure, it doesn't make sense what mikael is trying to achieve by making it known that he has it -- I couldn't very much care about that. But telling us all that we should hate him is just as pointless and petulant. You're not going to see the Hollywood Bowl DVD, I'm not going to see the Hollywood Bowl DVD -- accept it. Sure, it'd be nice, but it isn't going to happen. All these hypotheticals of "well, if I had it, I'd share it" are a waste of your own time. I for one am managing to survive day to day without seeing the DVD -- there's life beyond Morrissey, believe me.

    Everyone will see the DVD eventually...the release is imminent.

    If you want to be technical, isn't any post on here a waste of your time? Also, isn't what is a waste and what is not subjective?

    I know this goes against ever fiber of Morrissey's being, but why not simply make it available for download on True-to-You? Charge whatever you like Moz, I'm happy to purchase it.

    This belief he holds that he will not do digital downloads direct to fans because they do not fit this preconceived notion of what pop icons do is wildly outdated (see gulp, Coldplay). I know he likes being wooed by the labels and such but if this DVD project is dead, why not release it to fans?

    Get over it! I'm sure everyone will have it soon enough! Just don't ask people to leak stuff that isn't theirs to leak. Simple courtesy.

    Or go after it on your own with a bit of determenation and I'm sure you'll get it. Then you can decide what to do with it.

    Agreed. I've always tried to share bootlegs, concerts, rare b-sides and found that good things come back to me in return.

    I don't pretend to understand the hoarder mentality, and I truly don't begrudge someone if they are unwilling or afraid to share an unreleased item. What I think the average Morrissey fan takes offense to is the braggadocio.

    As for this idea on the thread that it will never leak, that's just absurd. In this day and age, everything leaks. We'll see it one day most assuredly. If not from a record label cashing in at an opportune time (coinciding with the release of an autobiography perhaps), than a Mr. Reynolds type (the anti-Mikael) will eventually leak it.

    Not to belabor the point: but Morrissey could offer it as a digital download tomorrow and while it would not reach a wide audience I know fans like myself would gladly purchase it. Hmmm, I'm thinking an online petition is in order! ;-)

    Just a list of your unreleased stuff you have had and leaked would be great. Again, I'm sure this stuff will be leaked eventually.

    No kidding, I literally Googled the definition of the word "forum" last weekend because I was beginning to think stating an opinion of one's own and not goose stepping along to the ever enthralling: what is Morrissey's favorite flavor of ice cream threads was somehow out of line. Turns out (check this out), a forum is a place where people can gather and share a variety of ideas and opinions! Totally wild, eh?

    Keep fighting the good fight and as always: VIVA HATE!

    It's called the "Downloads" section of the Forum. You can feel free to go back years and find the many concerts, albums, and movies I have shared.

    I think I have shared more with people on these forums than you. The give me, give me, give me mentallity is pretty tiresome. Make an effort. There is a community on here, believe me. I'm very greatful for it.

    So, I missed your response, If you have recordered a ton of shows that I have downloaded (I doubt it), that's great. People like me (yeeeees) and other collectors who spend freaking years and $1000s of hard own bucks for getting rare stuff, the hours looking.... If you do the same and want to be some kind of hero for posting a download, well fair enough. Perhaps it was wrong of me to tease Viva Hate (he/she just cracks me up), I kind of regret it. There is this scene though, where people who make this effort interact, unbeknownst to you. Apparently. I call this a forum.

    Oh, sorry, I wasn't aware that telling "every single member of the forum" that they should "instantly dislike" another user just because they won't share something was a progressive sharing of ideas and opinions. But I guess when you feel the need to consume yourself with hatred of a complete stranger, your opinion is always fact, eh? Hard to argue with that logic.

    He can't release it because he doesn't own the rights to the concert footage. Warner does. Now, technically, if he wanted to he could buy the footage off Warner and release it how he sees fit...but I don't imagine that would be cheap.

    Understood, but it begs the question: if Warner doesn't believe releasing the concert will gross sufficient profits than why not resell it back to Morrissey to recoup their investment? Either they are holding it because one day they believe it will be of value, or Morrissey has shown no interest (I suspect the latter).

    Thank you for taking the time to post a listing of the items I uploaded. That was very generous of you. I would have ignored the petulant demand to prove my assertion. I know what I've uploaded speaks for itself. It got me reminiscing. There certainly was a time when I gave out every concert I had in my possession. Mr Reynolds and others started a period in which everybody brought forward what they had. Those were cool times. Corrissey, Not Right In the Head, Worm, Pregnant for the Last Time... We've lost so many true fans who wanted nothing more than to have a fun discussion and liked to debate the issues instead of this dross about, "Why isn't Morrissey a vegan?". I've found it's best not to respond to the trolls whose debating skills invariably lead to the use of profanity, and the teenage crowd.
