It was at the exact time Michael Stipes penis entered his anus.

I nearly lost it when the Muzac system in the grocery store started playing an instrumental version Meat is Murder

"The Smiths put up interactive timeline of the band's history so you can pinpoint the exact moment Morrissey became a self-indulgent asshole"


That happened way before he joined the band, It happened at the point of Morrissey's conception.

Exactly the joke I came to make. Thread end, done here, etc.

gilatrout: I nearly lost it when the Muzac system in the grocery store started playing an instrumental version Meat is Murder


My local mom and pop grocery store had their satellite radio to a "light alternative" station for a few weeks a couple of years ago. I could barely suppress my glee at the experience of selecting produce while the Stranglers' "Golden Brown" played in the background.

I was really happy to hear "I Wanna Be Sedated" being played at my neighborhood Kroger.

The timeline doesn't actually go all the way back to May 22, 1959

Heh!

Around a dozen years back I was overcome with the urgent need to use the lavatory at the end of a Wal-Mart located at the opposite end of the strip mall from the Chinese place I'd just eaten lunch at (the lavatory of which was at the time temporarily unavailable). What should fill my ears as I'm doing the clenched-buttocks quick-step towards the lavatory? Lost in the Supermarket by the Clash.

And, yeah, the popularity of the Smiths eluded me in the 1980's and it still eludes me to this day. They were (and obviously still are and ever will be) popular favorites (and carry on with your bad self if you can be counted amongst those who dig 'em greatly) but...their appeal is utterly (and I, suppose, forever) lost on me.

And just as a p.s.:

Yes, that was the first and only time I patronized that particular restaurant.
 
2014-03-04 10:14:51 PM  
I would put the date as 22 May 1959.

Idiots. If Morrissey wasn't as full of shiat as he is, he wouldn't be as fantastic as he is. You want boring, look pretty much everywhere else. You want arrogant, outspoken and interesting, Moz is your man.

He might or might not sleep with you.

I think it was just about the time he went and he stood on his own, then he went home alone, and he cried and he wanted to die

Well he IS the son and heir of nothing in particular.

/did I mention I was crying?

If only he had some Tupperware to lock in pop star freshness.

See just the other day I was listening to "How Soon Is Now" and wondering how such a colossal twat of a singer ended up with such a badass band. It boggles the mind!

How about we link to the timeline rather than to an article about said timeline?

happens quite often that the singer, or another "star", of an otherwise good band shows himself/herself to be a douche

90s case in point = creed. scott = alcoholic-yet-somehow-holier-than-thou douche, rest of the band (who later went on to alterbridge with myles kennedy) = very talented band who don't come across as douches

i somewhat concur
i like the smiths. like, not love.
i can't frigging stand ANYTHING about non-smiths morrisey, however. i don't like his solo music. i think his voice or the stylings of his vocals must've changed, even if slightly, to a point where he's not acceptable to my ears. and his attitude is the nail in the coffin.
but when a smiths song comes on the radio i'll enjoy it

I sometimes wonder which will come first:  the sun's core losing nuclear fusion capability and becoming a red giant or Morrissey not cancelling a tour.

This is a trick question, as Morrissey was born out of his mum's anal fissure. It was sort of a premonition, really.
