SPEAKER_Morrissey> Adam, re: films I like,
you should see "Nil by Mouth," but not if you're feeling particularly happy.
Daniel, re: playing piano,
I only play with my elbows.
Goldenbrad, re: the next album,
The next album has been written but has yet to be recorded b/c I'm waiting to find a new deal. But the songs are the best yet.
Pepe, re: fav number b/El Vez,
I love El Vez. I wanted him to come to England and to Europe. He's influenced me greatly.
Mel, re: touring,
It's the best part of being involved in music. B/c it's the most free part.
Bedrock, re: Beck,
It's incredibly untrue.
Troubled, re: reunion with Marr,
Not even on the darkest nights.

I'm a masculinist.

It's called "Reader Meets Author"

Stalwart, re: rap music,
There's no melody (sigh).
Rimbaud, re: cover songs?,
There are so many. So many. (laughs)
re: 90's bands,
Predictably, I feel very little towards them. Everybody really does seem to do the same thing.
Shoplifter, re: clothes,
Oh God, my clothes do not rock, ever. Nowhere special. How can clothes rock?
Elsberry, re: sex, drugs, rock 'n' roll,
Rock 'n' roll, because it is the other two.
Daniel, re: being approached at shows,
It never makes me feel uncomfortable. I'm very trusting of people, unless I know them.
Emilio, re: most people being plastic,
Most people aren't even that genuine.
Mozbabe, re: life,
It won't last.
Ordinary Boy, re: bands copying my style,
They do it so badly.
Vic, re: good songwriter?,
A complete disregard for the music industry.
Wildeonmoz, re: coming up with lyrics,
I do a hell of a lot of eavesdropping. So watch out, I could be standing behind you right now.
Ralphie, re: New Year's Eve,
I'll be sitting on babies, I mean babysitting.
Ral, re: animal or vegetable,
The animal and the vegetable, that I am.
Oscar, re: going to the moon,
Mel, re: why doing this w/KROQ,
Is this Richard Blade?
Rebecca, re: someone special in my life?,
Rebecca, re: someone special?,
Just think of all the money I save while dining out.
Louderthanmusic, re: fave line ever wrote,
This story is old, I know but it goes on.
Wintermelt, re: reading fan sites?,
I'm told about them, without having to read them. I have a Web site slave.
Soy, re: "Kit,"
It was never released.
Soy, re: "Kit,"
It's a little irrelevant.
Kerissa, re: working with Bowie again?,
re: listen to punk music.
Always, especially the Cockney Rejects.
re: anything to say to fans,
re: free time, business,
Yes, I make scarves and gloves
re: fave designer,
I'm a Gucci baby
re: sense of humor, doing stand-up,
My sense of humor has never been noticed.
re: music after 39,
re: love life,
I'm waiting for you, Hulmerist25.
re: contacting me,
There's no sure way, there's no official way. I don't actually exist.
re: being famous changed me?
Yes, it's made me more normal.
re: being famous...
Especially in Scottsdale.
re: working with Pet Shop Boys' Neil Tennant,
Yes, I'm working on his hair.
re: signing with a smaller label,
I would definitely consider signing with a smaller label. Bigger does not necessarily mean better.
re: career w/o singing?
I wouldn't have a career.
re: what I eat?
I certainly don't eat animals or fish, and I never will.
re: what family thinks of my success,
They think it's very peculiar.
re: gigs in L.A., apart from Santa Barbara and Las Vegas.
re: new song title,
There's no chance of my telling you that whatsoever.
Any last questions.
Yipster, re: what I'm reading?,
Rockon, re: a tribute album me,
It wouldn't matter who's on it b/c if anybody covers your songs, you're incredibly grateful, as long as it's not Britney Spears.
A secret message: The vest is yet to come.
I'd like to thank everybody for their time.
I'd like to thank everybody for sticking around and supporting me. It's been a long haul.
Good night, and thank you.

When asked if there would be a smith's reunion he said:
'The Smiths is dead boys'
From Morten Larsen: It seems that you have missed one of Morrissey's more interesting answers, possibly because it was his first one.
He was answering my question:
"Are you going to play Smiths-songs on your coming tour, and are you going to debut new songs?"
He answered "Morten, the answer to all your questions is yes."
