What does Morrissey do?

I am hoping the basketball-playing pictures are photoshopped. If Morrissey plays basketball recreationally, I may lose another ounce of respect for him (previous ounces having come strictly from musical and costume missteps). I got the impression from Autobiography that most of his spare time is spent reading, writing, listening to music, watching classic movies, and tending to animals. If he has porn habits (which I doubt he does), it would be nice if he were to drop at least a clue as to what goes on in that area. A certain porn star who catches his fancy; a like or a dislike in terms of genre or style. He does, after all, have the snobbery and particularity of a good critic.
I reckon they are not. If I post a photo of the California Son, it will not be photo shopped. It will show what his real life is, in his place of birth
Los Angeles. Dude didn't write his own autobiography. It was written by an intern from UCLA telling you what you want to hear so you will keep buying, especially you foreigners. You people really are the list of the lost. The bottom photo is of the California Son Junior playing hoops in Calabasas inn n nnn n nn nnn it.

They're real (http://morrissey-solo.com/threads/l...rrissey-central.142896/page-8#post-1987112967), but he's not actually playing basketball as much as posing on a court with a ball as a prop. He has claimed in the past that he likes playing football (recreationally) and is quite good at it.

I don't remember the exact quote but I remember him saying in an interview that when he's on stage is the only time he actually feels comfortable. I think he lives for touring, if I'm honest. I don't blame him, it must be quite an adrenaline rush to know that the audience are there to see you because they love you and your songs. Not a bad way to earn a living, is it?

This would explain why he tours so extensively. When he's at home, I suspect he probably feels quite bored a lot of the time. I don't know whether he currently lives alone, but I know that he has spent most of his life living alone ever since moving out of Kings Road in Stretford.

I imagine he does the kind of things most of us do when not working. Listening to music, watching television, going out for dinner, meeting friends. He probably has more friends than people think. Regardless of his morose public image, at the end of the day he is a wealthy pop star, people are bound to be interested in and attracted to him. He will know and meet plenty of people, friends of friends etc. His close friends include Chrissie Hynde and Linder Sterling but even if he doesn't have a large group of close friends I'm sure there's many whom he's quite comfortable drinking and socialising with.

I think when touring he goes out drinking with his band and will probably meet people through them also.

He probably stays in touch with his family a lot, and I think he probably visits Manchester more often than we realise.

The basketball shots are simply because Sunset Studios has a small basketball court.
Prince used it too.
So just snaps in between recording L.P.'s vocals is my guess.

I reckon so you have a small basketball court at Sunset Sound, the California Son playing basketball on the basketball court and you delusional
anti-American terrorists are still saying he doesn't play basketball. No wonder why you people can't fight your own wars, you can't figure anything out. A photo of the California Son from 1997 on a field in some foreign country wearing a fake bib T-Shirt with a number on it, does not mean he plays kickball dumbshits. There is no kickball there! The 1991 poster of him looking up at a kickball falling from the sky, was obviously photo shopped for the poster cunt tit twat inn n nnnn nn nn nn nnn n nnn n it.

That is a shame that they're real. In my opinion, Morrissey should not wear Converse All-Stars or be photographed holding a basketball, but I'm sure he could care less. I should take this opportunity to say that you are one of my favorite posters here. I don't think I've ever read a post of yours that didn't start with "I reckon," end with "inn nnn nnit," and contain the phrases "California Son" and "Moz Angeles." Sometimes those things are the whole of the post. The effect is very humorous. I can't tell if you are a parody troll or a Brit genuinely resentful that Morrissey quit G.B. for L.A., but walking that fine line takes talent.

Football is fine. But basketball is not. He looks good dressed as a jock in that picture on the field. I guess a critic could say that the outfit is a bit overdone (is he really no. 28 on a team?) But I don't know what possessed him to wear Converse All-Stars. I didn't think anyone over sixteen ever wore those. He wore them on the World Peace cover, of course. He must like them.
