Marrvelous Wilde OFS

32 years, devout Catholic/Secular Franciscan; listen to The Smiths/Morrissey/Johnny Marr; I like Morrissey's shirts/Marr's guitars/literature/Sherlock Holmes/films/animals. Most of the things I post on this blog are not mine, I borrow them from their real owners. When you want to post something, please indicate the exact source of your post. Thank you.
You say that people often want to shut you up. Why?

"Whatever you think of me, I’m not a pop pushover. I’m not in there with the ‘synthetics’. And that seems to ruin life for many people in the record industry - the fact that my words are thought over, that I should dare to say something of any value. A lot of people think I’m a troublemaker. Some have said that I’m far too clever. That confuses me, because it’s like saying that this industry is really only there for philistines and empty-headed goons. I get confused when the intellectual music press denounce The Smiths. Because if you say No to The Smiths, you’re just saying Yes Yes Yes to Madonna… I don’t want to write merry pop songs. I know that I write in a way that many people find totally unlistenable. I recognise that fact, I’m not deluded in any way. I don’t expect the entire universe to drop the minute I wave a syllable." - Morrissey, 1985
