      Am I missing something here? A new program purchased maybe? Did Bowie really die? Has Morrissey turned into a big clock? Sounds like it.

      Mental shit. That's all this is. As someone said elsewhere, someone has left the keys in the car, and SER is pissing in it.

      And again you prove my point. The first one to post some SER. Are you scanning TTY all day for it? As silly as his posts are, it's equally silly to make it front page news on morrissey-solo again and again. And that just for you to fake shock and for you to enjoy the pleasure of saying the usual things that you say. Congratulations.

      Fuck off. Seriously. Go fuck off you mental fucking dolt.

      Position 1 - Ignore all criticism, even when it is absolutely, indubitably, manifestly, utter shit
      Position 2 - In contrast to the claims levied against others, trawl the forums all day for posts from me, so you can post the same old dreary, dreary, dreary shit. Time, after time, after time.
      Position 3 - Fuck off. You tiresome, hypocritical, one-track, one-dimensional cack-pipe.

      He actually seems to have developed some sort of interest in them recently.
      He referred to them in an interview and opened of his concerts by claiming that it took a nation of "squillions" to hold him and his band back.

      That was me, and someone else here wrote that these SER PSs should not be posted on the main page. I wasn't so sure, but now I am in complete agreement. The inmate(s) are clearly running the TTY asylum. TTY used to dole out posts like the desert doles out water, but now the flood gates are opened full blast, and the water quality has become polluted.

      Some version of a sieve needs to be implemented here in order to sort the wheat from the chaff. Something like if it is not a direct statement from Moz, related to his touring, or personally related to him, then it doesn't make it on the main page. For the love of God...someone step up to the plate and employ this SER so he has something to do with his time besides assaulting our eyeballs!

      I do!!!! Hotel living (*****) is the best, mate. Try it before you decry it. Much love always for Moz (that crazyass Flavor Flav not so much, though he does know what time it is...all the time. Then again, does anyone *really* know what time it is?). Peace out yo.

      I don't know about influence, but he has stated that he appreciates the politically charged nature of their music, despite not being a fan of hip-hop or rap.

      I imagine the objection is not that there's a Public Enemy reference on TTY, but that, intentionally or otherwise, the image draws a comparison between the racial tensions PE were addressing with the album and Morrissey's lack of label interest, suggesting that Morrissey is viewed by the world at large in the same way blacks historically have been, or that the two issues are of equal importance. Personally, I think it's giving Sam too much credit to assume that this is the intent behind the image (the lack of care in the execution of any of his image manips does not give the idea that much thought or effort is put into them), but it is very easy to read into it and pick up on some unfortunate implications.

      I'm confused as to how this qualifies as a 'photomontage'. He doesn't even seem to have altered the original image, just changed one word of text? Are we going to get a series of re-titled classic album covers now?
      'Dark Side of the Morrissey'? 'Sgt Morrissey's Lonely Hearts Club Band'? 'Bridge Over Troubled Morrissey'?

      Leaving all that aside, it's simply an utterly shit piece of 'art'.
