haha okay. im not even going to bother anymore. im just not.I'm not sure Morrissey has the discipline or the refinement to succeed at essay writing. Writing a successful essay is all about revision and rethinking and bringing ideas cohesively together. You have to be willing to admit when it's not working and be able to look at the ideas in different ways.
Morrissey's novella shows that he needs practice with these elements and that's fair enough. I was shit at writing (even though I had the raw talent) until recently and since Morrissey didn't go through university and didn't happen to have a great professor who helped him refine these key skills, he's lacking in polish and organization of ideas.
He has tons of raw talent but that only gets you so far. If his true-to-you posts are to be taken as examples of his short essay writing skills, they need work.
What do other folks think about Morrissey doing a cover album? I would love to hear him do some classics and some cool songs that are in his wheelhouse.
Billy Fury... take your pick
Elvis Presley, "(Marie's the Name) His Latest Flame"
Frank Sinatra, "For Once in My Life"
Chris Isaak, "You Owe Me Some Kind of Love"
Leonard Cohen, "Everybody Knows"
Neil Diamond, "I Am... I Said"
R.E.M., "The One I Love"
Shakin' Stevens, "Cry Just a Little Bit"
Tom Jones, "Sex Bomb"
You get the idea.

He's not going to do any songs by anyone who has sold more or is more famous than he is. It worked great for Johnny Cash and it would work great for Morrissey, but all the songs would have to be sort of obscure. I can't imagine him doing any U2 or REM because they used to be his competition a million years ago.
But I'd like to heat him do some rockabilly and 50's rock. He's already done this kind of thing, but he could probably have a hit record if the songs were covers. He likes 60's girl groups and probably knows some real gems that he hasn't already lifted the melodies from.
i dont think hed do a covers album because whatd be the point. theyre very boring and usually just contract fillers but hes already done live covers of elvis and lou reed so i doubt itd be about hwat they sold. it just seems like a pointless endeavor. also of course no great novel has ever been produced by anyone outside of university. thats like crazy talk
