Johnny Marr Drops By Amoeba - brokenheartboy

Johnny Marr recently dropped by one of the amazing Amoeba record stores in California and was snagged to do a quick video of what he was purchasing. Pretty cool to hear what the genius is thinking music wise. And no, there is no talk of a Smiths reunion. Sighhhhhhhh. Have a look:​

"Only If You Are Really Interested" - McFarland
Celebrity, Gender, Desire and the World of Morrissey

About the Book
One of the keys to the enduring popularity of the British singer Morrissey is his carefully crafted enigmatic persona. This critical book examines the role of enigma in the celebrity’s public life, exploring how a level of mystery is maintained through television interviews, videos, reviews and concerts, as well as through his music and lyrics. Of particular interest is the way in which enigma stimulates interest and desire in his audience, and how the artist manipulates traditional modes of masculinity and the conventions of pop music to further cultivate enigma.

The countryside, quite remarkably, does not need the Hunting Act to be repealed"

Johnny Marr -

"Sports which involve causing injury to animals are not only cruel but unnecessary and outdated. I'm sure that given the opportunity then the majority of people would choose to outlaw it.

I feel that those who think it's ok to abuse animals for so called sport are ignorant."...
