    "A soft place to land" Goodbye, Realitybites

    With great sadness, I am notifying the other affected residents of this site that the M-soloer known as realitybites/Jehne Lunden has been sung to sleep. For more than a decade, Jehne was a prolific contributor to these Morrissey-solo forums, engaging in spirited discussions of the numerous...

    Fiona Dodwell: "10 Underrated Morrissey Tracks You Need To Hear Today" (November 3, 2020)

    Because she’s a pretentious bore. And half of the list is garbage.

    Morrissey on IRS's The Cutting Edge (on MTV)

    YouTuber, MrPhilrand, has posted two videos from the MTv show, The Cutting Edge. The videos seem to be labeled backwards, with part 1 being called part 2 and vice-versa. The description on the YouTube videos says 1986, but the video indicates the time is October, 1985. As the opening shot of the...

    Sad what passes for art direction

    All this time, I'd thought the grainy look of the IANADOAC cover was just a function of low-resolution derivatives, but evidently the intended concept was to mimic fan-made, bootleg-concert artwork circa 1999? Back then, we had to use whatever 640x480 px images someone happened to share. What...

    Morrissey 1999 appearance featured in Coachella documentary

    I was in line for that show too! There's some picture of a bunch of us sitting on the steps outside the casino entrance I need to find again. Anywaaaaay. I love the Coachella footage here, but the commentary bookending it wasn't relevant to Morrissey's performance, and that's a pity. :(

    Morrissey mention on Better Caul Saul?

    Me too! It's so weird because the amount of time the fake company logo is on the screen is literally a split second. Why would they go through so much effort to create a logo for a truck? Couldn't they just have filmed it without a logo? It just feels like an "easter egg" of some sort, even...

    Morrissey mention on Better Caul Saul?

    This past Monday's episode (S05E09) of Better Call Saul caught my eye even more than usual when in an early scene, a big rig rolls through the scene emblazoned with "Morrissey Freight." I don't find an actual company called Morrissey Freight, so it's got me wondering what the reference might...

    Morrissey Central: "You Have Been Warned" (October 22, 2019)

    It's tasteless irrespective of permissions previously granted or withheld. It's one thing to demonstrate one's admiration for iconic (or lesser-known) celebrities by using their likenesses on album artwork. It's quite a laughable other to suggest--esp. through amateurish photo editing--that...

    Post Whatever You Are Thinking At This Very Moment

    I think your response was rather abstemious. ;)

    Safe and Well - Home and Dry

    How I dearly wish Morrissey was more like Neil Tennant. I guess we're with stupid.

    "USA Chart Position" (#7 Billboard Albums, #3 Vinyl Albums) - Morrissey Central; #95 Billboard 200

    I like California Son. A lot! But at #95, California Son will have been bested by all these: Chronicle by Creedence Clearwater Revival (released 1976); Greatest Hits by Queen (released 1981); Legend by Bob Marley (released 1984); and Journey's Greatest Hits (released 1988)! :squiffy:

    "USA Chart Position" (#7 Billboard Albums, #3 Vinyl Albums) - Morrissey Central; #95 Billboard 200

    Hideous cover art. Can hot pink Phosphate Pro Inline font on top of a pixelated photo really be considered art? :squiffy:

    California son - how do you rate it?

    I do not like either the Buffy St Marie or the Jobriath originals. At all. As with “Trash,” back in 1991, Morrissey has made accessible songs I would never have given a second listen.

    California son - how do you rate it?

    9’s are not 10’s. Great Morrissey songs are 10s and everything else falls in degrees short. That said, I’d rather listen to every one of these songs than to any of the songs on World Peace or to any except one of the songs on Low In High-School.
