TTY- "This sorrowful Canada"

This sorrowful Canada
19 April 2014


This sorrowful Canada

The seal hunt in Canada is struggling to make a start this year due to almost no markets, and China especially is refusing to sell Canadian seal meat. Thank you, China!
China has stated that "animal rights protests" are the reason why they have dropped Canada's custom.
The annual East Coast seal hunt/kill started Monday - against a strong wave of trade and court challenges. Europe continues its ban on seal products.
Gail Shea, the federal Fisheries Minister for Canada, says that baby seals are "killed humanely", and explains how the baby seals are shot by high-powered rifles. Is this a death that Gail Shea would wish for herself? Would it make her happy to be shot by a high-powered rifle? If she considers such butchery to be so "humane", why doesn't she place herself amongst the tens of thousands of grey-coated harp seals that will be slaughtered within the next few weeks? She could then test the humane aspect of having her head blown off for herself. Only then could she be thought to speak with any authority on the subject.
Canada is a beautiful country, and the people of Canada are good people. But good people are often ineffectual. Internationally, Canada's sorry image is due entirely to its seal slaughter - which is greedy and barbaric, and it is dismaying to witness such ignorance in 2014. Sound reason tells us that only those of the thinnest intellect wear animal fur, and because the Canadian government are concerned with animals only economically, killing baby seals with lightning brutality is now Canada's primary global image. Until this annual massacre is abolished, Canada itself is regrettably fashionably dead.

Edited: Sleepy mod misread this article this morning. :P Have been informed that Blondie won 2014 award.... Wishful thinking that Moz would win anything from the NME. But at least the "readers" voted well... ;)

I recently acquired a contact sheet of 37 photographic images taken by Anton Corbijn in 1988. These were the sessions that also produced the cover shot of 'Viva Hate'. A shot from this roll also graced the cover of 'Spin' magazine in June 1988. Pure Kodak Tri-X beauty. Scupltural chiaroscuro sublimity.

Morrissey ~ Anton ~ NineteenEightyHate; it doesn't get much better than this.

I've extracted, enhanced and sharpened up the individual frames. Enjoy ~

Cliff Richard to avoid Morrissey monarchy chat

Posted by Mr.Shankly (Members) at Thu 27 Feb 2014, 21:51:21. 2 comments

In an article for NME magazine, Richard writes:
"I know Morrissey is quite different to me. He has a very political side to his lyrics - he likes to protest and talk about issues. People have said to me, 'Do you think you're going to get along?' I say opposites attract.

"We'll probably meet at the soundcheck, and I don't see we're going to have a lot of time to have a conversation. We'll probably steer clear of talking about the monarchy. I just hope I get time to say, 'Thanks for having me, mate,' and wish him good luck."

Morrissey Q&A: Moz Discusses New Music, the Beatles and the Danger of Hospital Food

Posted by Mr.Shankly (Members) at Thu 27 Feb 2014, 16:15:48. 9 comments

"Now that he’s found the silver lining to his black cloud, Billboard thought it was good time to pick Morrissey’s brain about his recent rash of success, his anticipated new projects, and the 30th anniversary of his first album with the Smiths. Fortunately for us, Morrissey thought it was a good time to answer our queries."


http://www.billboard.com/articles/news/5915799/morrissey-qa-moz-discusses-new-music-the-beatles-and-the-danger-of-hospital

some highlights:

"Speaking of triumphs, your much-delayed autobiography was finally released last year. It immediately became an international best-seller and is being translated into 14 languages. How surprised were you by its success?

I felt a bit rash hoping for a no. 7 position, so when it came in at no. 1 and stayed there for five weeks ... I was breathless. It's sold more than I ever imagined.


"On your next tour, you've asked Tom Jones and Sir Cliff Richard to open for you in L.A. and New York respectively. What impresses you most about these veteran frontmen?

Veteran is a gentle way of saying “old,” isn't it? Well, it's only my view of course, but everything is a question of style, and Tom and Cliff qualify greatly in the style department, and age has nothing to do with it. There are millions of obese 19-year olds who only buy clothes that blend in with the couch."

This story is old, I know, but it goes on.

9 February 2014

This story is old, I know, but it goes on.

One day prior to giving a public plea on behalf of animal welfare (!), Prince William is to be found in Spain (with Prince Harry) shooting and killing as many deer and boar as they possibly can! Although William's speech (no doubt written by his publicity aides at Clarence House) will concentrate on endangered species, William is too thickwit to realize that animals such as tigers and rhino are only driven to near extinction because people who are precisely like himself and his brother have shot them off the map - all in the name of sport and slaughter. Whenever you shoot an animal in the head the outcome is usually the same: death. Just why William kills innocent and defenseless deer does not matter – the fact is, he does it, and we must go on and on asking why any form of violence is acceptable to the British establishment. It is easy for privileged people to assume jealousy to be the reason why anyone would wish to condemn them, but the British Boil Family never fails to be a colossal embarrassment to the United Kingdom. The Spanish trip is more than likely unwillingly funded by the British taxpayer, and we know very well that the British press is duty-bound to always defend and cleanse the bad behavior of the Boil Family - no matter how abysmal and hypocritical their actions. But the rationalists amongst us - who are never allowed to speak, are intelligent enough to realize that endangered species are dying out only because of people like William and Harry, and, for this we can only pray to God that their hunting guns backfire in their faces.

Once in a while a postcard/letter written by the man himself will show up & there is always something funny about the notes (maybe the boring ones get lost?).
Here are a few that showed up recently. I hope it's OK to post as non of these contain any personal information. To kick it off, 30 years ago in NYC:

New Contract with Harvest (Capitol Music Group) for 2 albums

Posted by Ms Nomer (Members) at Wed 15 Jan 2014, 16:44:20. 33 comments

Replaced my initial post with official press release: http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/morrissey-signs-worldwide-recording-agreement-with-harvest-records-240293931.html

HOLLYWOOD, Calif., Jan. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Harvest Records has signed globally-renowned artist Morrissey to a worldwide recording agreement, it was announced today by the label's General Managers Piero Giramonti and Jacqueline Saturn. Morrissey's first album under the deal will be released in the second half of this year.
Morrissey stated that he is "thrilled" with the agreement, and will commence recording of his new album – the artist's first since 2009's Years Of Refusal – later this month in France with producer Joe Chiccarelli. Joining Morrissey in France will be his longtime recording and touring band, including Boz Boorer (guitar), Jesse Tobias (guitar), Solomon Walker (bass), Matthew Walker (drums) and Gustavo Manzur (keyboards). Tour dates for 2014 will be announced soon.
According to Capitol Music Group Chairman and CEO Steve Barnett, "Morrissey is clearly one of music's most important and influential artists. He is the rare soul who has stayed consistently true to his artistic vision and ethical principles since he first exploded onto the scene in the 1980s. We are so happy that he has chosen Capitol Music Group as his home and that his forthcoming album on Harvest will bring new Morrissey music to the world."
CMG Executive Vice President Michelle Jubelirer added, "Morrissey is a truly singular artist whose music and live performances first captured a worldwide audience thirty years ago and never let go. He is uncompromising in his integrity, extremely devoted to his fans and an artist with a unique and needed voice in our culture. It's so great that Morrissey is with CMG, and, more important, that he is about to record his first new album in five years."
Morrissey's solo career began in 1988, after the dissolution of The Smiths, with the release of Viva Hate. His influence on music and culture has continued to grow over the past 25 years through the release of nine globally acclaimed studio albums and an array of singles, rarities collections and live recordings. He is renowned as one of the world's most beloved and iconic performing artists, recently exemplified in last year's concert film, Morrissey 25: Live, recorded in March 2013 at a rare intimate show at Hollywood High School in Los Angeles.
Music magazine NME considers Morrissey to be "one of the most influential artists ever," while The Independent famously wrote that "most pop stars have to be dead before they reach the iconic status he has reached in his lifetime." He is held in equal esteem in the U.S., with Pitchfork, for example, regarding him as "one of the most singular figures in Western popular culture."
Morrissey's recent Autobiography became one of the fastest-selling memoirs in the UK upon its release in October and set first-week sales records when it entered the UK charts at #1 (a slot it held for five weeks). Its release also marked the first time a living author had been published by Penguin Classics in the imprint's nearly-70-year history. Autobiography has been widely acclaimed, with The Telegraph calling it "the best written musical autobiography since Bob Dylan's Chronicles" in its 5-star review.
