NOHO MONDAY- this charming man NOT a case of the MONDAYS

this charming man

Punctured bicycle on a hillside desolate
Will nature make a man of me yet?
When in this charming car, this charming man
-Why pamper life's complexities when the leather runs smooth on the passenger seat?

I would go out tonight, but I haven't got a stitch to wear
this man said it's gruesome that someone so handsome should care

Words and music Morrissey, Marr

and with this, many, many teenage boys were sent on their way

You never have to explain why you loved it or why you outgrew it. It's yours to keep. Nobody can take that



     No matter that it is MONDAY and some are having a hard time dealing. CHEER UP. so many people have it so much worse, you?  well you've got CAROL. Dudes, remember to remember that                         THERE'S ALWAYS CAROL: SASSY SLUTTY SEXY


Morrissey, he's doing the track without Johnny Marr with his new band, years later.

this of course is only Johnny. AMAZING to see, if you never have, check it out. He's since played with Modest Mouse The Cribs, (his own band) The Healers, In the past it's been Talking Heads, The Pretenders, THE THE, Bryan Ferry, the project that was anything but ELECTRONIC (with Bernard {New Order, Joy Division,} and Neil Tennant of the Pet Shop Boys).

Original video for song. This video was a big deal because up til then, they had only made a handful of videos refusing to promote themselves in that medium ruled by MTV, mainly. The layers and layers of flowers look banged up and weird now, but then, when everyone was trying hard to look futuristic and sound modern and electronic, this was a more organic response. As for the feminine accessories and jewelry, that is just a wrong choice in stylist. Just kidding, They were big champions of breaking traditional roles and were very modern in that. Morrissey always talking about male liberation, wearing women's blouses. Whether it be giving up meat , giving up a strict adherence to male norms or taking a different route to rock and roll when most looked and behaved like mannequins. Keeping it real, worked for them. Now they benefit in keeping the mystique alive by shutting the ... the front door. Keeps 'em wanting more.



 North Hollywood California. North Hollywood is not really Hollywood, it's more a case of the ugly sister who's addicted to various substances and can't seem to shake her demons. She's not ugly UGLY  she's just not what people would consider obvious beauty. The other sisters would be West Hollywood, and of course HOLLYWOOD. She's not invited to the big parties. She's kind of never talked about. But she's got a purpose and that is to always keep the secrets of the other sisters: to either nurture them back to health, or clean them when they are sick when nobody is looking. -Somebody asked me what NOHO was like recently.


I will continue to say it: if you get to make even one song to connect with people and mean something to them or have memories just come rushing back that they make their eyes tear up, you've made a big fucking impact. The rest of the stuff may never stick, so what, who cares, you still got that one hit, not many people get that. Congratulations ONE HIT WONDERS. This band was not that, because they never really had a hit here. In the UK? ...well you know that story.
