Morrissey to Retire from Music


Former Smiths frontman Morrissey says he'll be retiring in two years when he turns 55:

"I am slightly shocked to have gone as far as I have. This is my 30th year, and I’ve aged a lot recently, which is bit distressing for me, as it must be for everyone. The body changes shape and there’s nothing you can do about it. Do I continue as a modern day Andy Williams? I take one hour at a time. We will all probably be blown up by the Syrian government soon, anyway, so it hardly matters in the great scheme of things [laughs]."

Morrissey and His Band 'Hate William and Kate'


Morrissey and his bandmates staged a sartorial protest of Britain's continued ownership of the Falkland Islands at a concert in Argentina, according to the Hollywood Reporter:

"The [British] government, the governments, never listen to the people, to their pain," he told the audience, blaming the government, not the people, for the political difficulty.

Morrissey initially commented on the dispute, which has been enflamed by Prince William's Royal Air Force assignment to the islands, on Friday, when he told another audience in Argentina that “You know of course the Malvinas Islands, everybody knows they belong to Argentina so please do not blame the British people, we know the islands belong to you." The Malvinas Islands are the Spanish name for the Falklands.

Unite and Take Over: The Smiths to Get Comic Book Treatment


Comic book artist Shawn Demumbrum spearheaded a successful Kickstarter project that is resulting in a 74-page illustrated comic book inspired by the lyrics from songs by The Smiths.

"I approached some of my fellow comic book creators and asked them to create 4-8 pages stories inspired by their favorite Smiths songs.  The song acts as an inspiration, jumping off point, theme or mood for the story.  Each story varies in style and genre."

My adolescent gay angst approves!

London Tottenham Riots: Time-Lapse


Over the weekend, Andrew posted about the riots in London's Tottenham neighborhood that sprang from a peaceful vigil over the Metropolitan Police's fatal shooting of 29-year old father of four named Mark Duggan.

Now, there's an eerie time-lapse of the event, as the fires burned into early morning.


In related news, Morrissey spoke up about the riots at one of his concerts, criticizing the British government:

"Does anyone think that David Cameron has been to Tottenham? I don't think so," he told the crowd.
