Sorry Subby, but he's right and it ain't just Britain. We landed a SUV-sized rover on Mars today and it was the fifth item on the NBC Nightly News. The Olympics has always been ruling-class propaganda theater. Do you know who invented the torch relay? That's right - him.
 
2012-08-07 12:32:17 AM  
Well, at least it was on the NBC news. I went to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution website and there was not a single mention of Curiosity on the main page. Just American Idol and speculation on a swimmer going to UGA. Gods, I love it here......

I'm not so sure about jingoistic but I can't recall an Olympics that was so cynically corporate as this one.

1996 was probably the worst. Not surprising, holding it in Atlanta.

A tad hyperbolic but he has some valid points

I wonder if Obama/Romney are glad that the Olympics are serving as a distraction? Because I can honestly that watching the Olympic games and seeing America win gold medals isn't going to somehow make people find jobs and get this economy going again.

Jingoistic? What the hell is jingoistic?? Farking, where's my dictionary....

the belligerent spirit or foreign policy of jingoes; chauvinism

says the man who compared the massacre at the Youth Labour Party camp on Utøya Island in Norway to what happens at McDonalds and KFC every day.

He's got a point. I love the guy's music, but frequently roll my eyes at his political declarations, but he nearly always has a point if you scrape off the self-righteousness. It's Morrissey, that's what he does. It's who he is. At this point, he doesn't give a shiat about what people think about him, I suppose... except whether he's gay or not.

/Just admit it Moz, it's not 1980 anymore...

Clearly, subby has ever heard any Smiths songs, like, ever. He's angry, he's flippant, he's Morrissey. And I love him for it.

"...and will kick off a North American tour on October 5th in Boston."

It is purely conicidental, of coure, that this high-volume, press-friendly fit of pre-scripted pique occurs
just as the tickets for this long-stalled exit go on sale.
 
2012-08-07 01:20:15 AM  
He has his valid points.
 
2012-08-07 01:26:36 AM  
It sounds like he's truly sick of the disparity between what England is and what it seems to be portraying itself to the world.

" As London is suddenly promoted as a super-wealth brand, the England outside London shivers beneath cutbacks, tight circumstances and economic disasters."


"......the 'dazzling royals,' laughing as they lavishly spend, as if such coverage is certain to make British society feel fully whole"


By the way, Morrissey is worth $32million. Just sayin'.

Hey subby, the 1980's called and want to tell you about the obvious tag.
 
2012-08-07 01:36:47 AM  
I think he has some valid points. I love watching the Olympics but the crazy super-patriots are ridiculous. I was reading a local news article and people were on there biatching because the US athletes weren't paying enough attention to the American flag during the medals ceremony.

I would tend to agree with Morrissey.

Well, maybe the royals are using the Olympics as an experiment. I'm just asking questions here.

Morrissey has lost his goddamned mind and so have a lot of Farkers, apparently. The Olympics have always been an opportunity for the host country to toot its own horn, and they've usually done so with gusto. BFD.

Morrissey recently revealed plans to retire in two years and will kick off a North American tour on October 5th in Boston.

i wonder...

I think the only surprising thing about this story is that anyone is surprised by any of this.

I've wondered how Morrissey would be viewed if he used concise understatement and brevity instead of expanding into hyperbole-and-a-half land. He has good points but it always feels like he is using the poetry of a emotional angsty teen to convey his ideas.
 
2012-08-07 04:59:02 AM  
Sorry, he's not right at all.

I was pretty cynical leading up to the games but it's actually been amazing to be in London to witness it. When we get behind our athletes it's not jingoism or the spirit of 1939, it's just that we've finally got something positive to get behind. Months (years) of bad news, financial corruption, dishonest politicians, have created a sombre mood. There's nothing sinister about people cheering on our sportsmen. He's completely incorrect to state that it's a cover for other problems. We all know these are dark days, but that doesn't mean we should turn away from the sun when it shines.
 
2012-08-07 05:11:59 AM  
Yeah, because it's not like the entire bloody point of the Olympics is to allow nations a forum for international competition and grandstanding without the traditional genocide or anything.

Christ, you get together with your neighbors for weekly poker as a replacement for shooting rifles at each others' windows a year ago and some stupid biatch can't do anything but complain that the host enjoys pointing out his nice new window-frames while he's dealing.

Morrisey is that biatch today, apparently. Thanks for being one of the reasons we can't have nice things, asshole.

I can understand being upset. I used to feel that way whenever I heard Morrissey's name now. I need you to realize he's just an old washed-up has-been who says things for attention. He's so incredibly stubborn that he won't even talk to his former best friend. Is that someone whose opinion we should validate?

So instead, whenever Morrissey tries to stir up controversy, just do what I do.

1. Say, "oh, that's just adorable, Morrissey." Because really, he's absolutely precious. He's a real hoot.
2. Find the nearest consumable animal product.
3. Consume said animal product.
