"..this is why: In life, there’s nothing like the high of a Morrissey show. Nothing. Let’s just say that again. Nothing."

Oh dear......forget birth, marriage, children, jobs and death, it all fades into insignificance compared to a pop concert?

"Watching Morrissey you know you’re in the presence of something truly special, and to dive on it or damage it would be wrong. The Beatles/Bieber reaction is not appropriate."

Oh dear.....hilarious attempt at hierarchical assertion of authenticity, not just better than Bieber, but more 'appropriate' than Beatlemania. How realisitic is this as an overview? EpicFAIL!

"....that magical atmospheric ‘dust’ that whizzes around Morrissey’s orbit when he’s on stage, the invisible sprinkle of Mozness that can normally only be felt from attending a gig. But I felt it and I inhaled it."

Dust? I've heard about these 'designer drugs', but didn't realise Moz was peddlling them. Perhaps he should do a perfume/scent, like Katy Perry? Did you inhale the smoke from all those candles he has on stage to keep an olfactory distance from the herd, speaking of which:

" smelling the sweat of the Mozarmy beside me."

Hmmmn. Pheremones and B.O.....to much information.......And Boz!

"Taking the cinema-trip to stratospheric heights was the attendance of Boz Boorer and his wife, Lyn, who sat in the row in front. It was like I was having some kind of out of body experience. The film was showing me a super sized Boz, but Boz was actually there in the cinema with his wife, sitting nearby. I could see other cinema goers trying to comprehend this mind fuddle;"

Yes, it's incompreshensible that a guitarist in a backing band might go out to a cinema midweek with his wife to watch himself on film......'out of body experience'? Srsly? And very unkind comment on Boz being "super-sized": his weight management issues are not to be mocked.

"They’re not going crazy, they’re in awe just from being so close.!"

They ARE crazy if they're "in awe" just because someone can sing and throw out a nifty couplet now and then. What's the average age of the audience? 47? Why would anyone over 13 be "in awe" of anyone on a stage?

" I kept my respectful distance,"

The words of a real and fearless auteur!......*sigh*

An enjoyable review and interview from Julie. I think her language was a bit more dramatic and effusive than usual because she was still a bit intoxicated from just seeing Morrissey 25:Live. :p I knew just what she meant when she said "there's nothing in life like the high of a Morrissey show." And seeing this in the theater did come close (nothing is the same as being feet from him!) That statement, however in no way indicates she (or I) have no life or meaningful relationships and/or don't have things in perspective. The joy of Morrissey is just an extra pleasure.

I enjoyed the short interview with James Russell. After watching the film I understood how he lovingly crafted this film (often by just standing back and letting Moz do his thing) to feel so much like a live concert. It was so true to the experience; it's just very well done.

More flatulent drivel from he who can not spell. How insufferably diabolical of you, let's see: 'realisitic' 'Pheremones' 'peddlling' 'EpicFAIL' 'Srsly' and oh the irony 'incompreshensible'.

Oh that is a classic of epic fail proportions! If your ensuing babbling replies are without spelling errors that would embarrass a half-blind bouncer from Nantucket I take pride in knowing that I have aided you somewhat in learning how to use spell check. Less time spent online perhaps and more time reading 'books' (without pictures) might be in order my dear fellow! Surely you are not trying to imitate Morrissey by attempting your own Cemetry Gates? You've got enough mistakes in one of your erroneous epistles for at least half an album!

I, being of an infinitesimally superior intellect than yourself do not require such common tools however, I, after sufficient pondering know that you absolutely require it. You may wish to cancel that appointment with Mensa!

Yes, 'intoxicated' is a useful word.

"That statement, however in no way indicates she (or I) have no life or meaningful relationships and/or don't have things in perspective. The joy of Morrissey is just an extra pleasure."

You have no basis on which to make this assertion unless you are, in fact, Julie. She uses the word 'nothing' 3 times to emphasise that the 'high' of a Morrissey consumer experience/gig is beyond anything else in 'life'. This is clearly a disturbed statement. Or it's hyperbollic nonsense, just like wot Morrissey does in his ramblinng communiques.
I'm delighted that you enjoyed a film of a performance and found meaning in it, yet retain a balanced perspective with regard to other nourishing sources in your life beyond Morrissey. This seems an entirely appropriate, non-delusional way to behave. If you pay for a consumer product/experience (gig/CD) then it's great if you can wring every ounce of utility and value from your investment. There's nothing wrong or bizarre in finding joy in Morrissey's career as a capitalist music entrepreneur, just as there's nothing wrong with him finding joy beyond just profit in selling products and services in the entertainment marketplace.

Julie Hamill usually writes with some degree of restraint. This, however, is needlessly hyperbolic and conveys, as you say, 'intoxication' above all other considerations.

When you write "nothing is the same as being feet from him!" I have no idea what you are trying to convey. Clearly, being a few feet away from a performer is nothing like being in a queue at the supermarket, or in the company of ducks at a pond in a public park. Every situation is unique with its' pleasures and frustrations. I find it rather difficult to accept that watching Morrissey in concert is more exciting than watching ducks in their joyful paddling, although the whole rigmarole of concerts is often like queuing in a supermarket.

I'm pleased for you that you didn't waste money on a ticket to the cinema. And I'm pleased that you are able to compartmentalise the pleasure you gain from following Morrissey's antics so it does not spill over and contaminate other, equally important areas of your life and relationships.

with every good wish
yours, in jubilo

Re: Julie Hamill interview with director James Russell, "Morrissey 25: Live" review - juliehamill.co

Does anyone know where Morrissey is at present and how is his health
Ask his doctor:

"I have returned to Los Angeles and to the expert supervision of my doctor Jeremy Fine"

http://www.jeremyfinemd.com/

Actually, don't bother as his doctor won't be able to say a word about his patient, confidentiality and The Hippocratic Oath and all that. No idea why Morrissey overshared this info, I bet loads of cult followers have registered with Dr Fine in hopes of meeting their leader if they turn up with a boil on their ass or something.

I hope Morrissey is well, I couldn't bear to think of him being poorly. Food poisoning can be really, really serious and have complcations that last a long time. I hope he'll be able to eat penne tomato again, but he might need some counselling first.

with all my love and hopes that your tomato plants are ready to harvest like mine.

Solo is the Hotel California because you keep saying you're going to leave and you never do. :straightface:
er....wrong! I 'checked out' several times and was AWOL for several years. I'm about to check out again until/unless Morrissey does something that isn't entirely predictable, entirely a rehash of things he's already done. But no, I'll always keep him under 'observation'. And his 'fans'. I would feel a great sense of guilt and shame if I left you all to flounder in the abyss of fan/fame alongside poor Morrissey.

I'm simply using Morrissey as a springboard for a philosophical enquiry/meditation into the pathology of celebrity in the C20th/C21st. I enjoy a lot of his music. He's either a genuinely tragic failure or he's a charlatan. But some good riffs and lyrics and a hugely amusing scripted mass-delusion effect at concerts.

Listen to Hotel California: leaving is not an option, that's the point. Morrissey IS Hotel California. If he'd listened to it in the 1970s he might have saved himself a lot of wasted time. No doubt he thought The Eagles were 'obvious' and 'untalented' because they were hugely popular heterosexual male entertainers from a faux-cowboy aesthetic. Love The Eagles! Easily as potent lyrics as anything by Morrissey:

"Mirrors on the ceiling,
The pink champagne on ice
And she said "We are all just prisoners here, of our own device"
And in the master's chambers,
They gathered for the feast
They stab it with their steely knives,
But they just can't kill the beast"

If Lou Reed had written this, Morrissey would have dropped his jaw in awe. I bet he hated Abba too!

may the blessings of ocean waves break to deliver dophins upon the shore of your soul!

No, I'm not the 'blue rose guy', but if I was: would I say?

I'm not bored out of my mind. I'm having a laugh.

There's no gig drought. A 2/3/5 year break would be entirely appropriate. I don't see Bowie rushing to play Peurto Monte, though I'm sure he could sell a football stadium out if all he wanted was 'adoration' from misguided 'fan's.
