Incorrect. Popmaster makes him cool as fuck.

Morrissey, whether he liked it or not, stood for the marginalized.

No he didn't, he stood and stands for himself.  He isn't responsible for what others wish to project.

He's one of the few people you can accuse of being a "sell out" much as I deride that term.

What has he sold out?

 

He has been flirting with racism and its imagery for over 25 years now,  The Smiths were active for 5.  Even back then his media was totally thought out.

It's the hypocrisy that's the point, though. Hopkins ever stood for anything in the first place, so she's free to spout whatever mad shit gets attention. Morrissey, whether he liked it or not, stood for the marginalized. It's a mantle he has to own because he played up to it. No he's talking shit about immigration and whatnot. He should be ashamed of himself. He's one of the few people you can accuse of being a "sell out" much as I deride that term.

It's all much of a muchness at this point. We don't disagree on what a cock Morissey is.

100% disagree with this.

Though my position is clouded by when I worked for the Council and Jim 'using the scanner is really fun' Waite and the other people who had been there since the mid 80's insisted on putting it on every day religiously.

That's such a wank thing to say, "he stands for himself". So do I, so do you. Obviously. But, as popular as the Smiths were, he, whether he tried to or not, ended up with a fanbase who looked up to him. He was, for better or worse, a "spokesman" for his livly livered, cardigan-clad poetry writing fanbase. That bloody awful poetry! Why are you letting him off the hook just because you like the Smiths? I'm listening to There Is a Light That Never Goes Out now, but for fuck's sake, call your man out when he's being a prick.

That's because Jim Waite was correct.

 

EDIT - @Brewster McCloud I'm addressing your your point that Albarn is as inept as Morrissey.  I'm pointing out that Morrissey is far from inept and how your comparison doesn't work.  I'm not letting off the hook at all because I'm not defending him.

Aye, fair enough. It all depends on how you define "adept" I suppose. You're right that Moz is a worker, but then - I hate to keep banging this drum - why work yourself into being such an awful person? Really, I think that some of the things he said in the past were great, to grab headlines in the music press - but now? I don't think he has a clue how he's coming across. And, if he does, then that's just shit. 

 

Christ, at least he's not Belle and fucking Sebastian.

It's about how you define inept, not adept ;)

Innit, the good honest council workers knew they had a tory in their midst.

Jim "Man of correctness" Waite should print this out for the office.

Yeah, he'll put that right next to the 'You don't have to be mad to work here, but it helps' print out he had next to his desk. These are the sort of people who like Ken Bruce.

And they're still cooler than you.  What was the highest popmaster score in the office today?

If we have to nominate someone who actually thinks they're cool, this bloke from Big Brother thought he was the dogs bollocks but was probably the most pathetic bloke whose ever entered;

I seem to recall his BB Housemates complaining that his breath stank. 

Bad Breath has never been or will ever be "cool".

Marcus was also a wrestling fan and all of us honest UKFF'ers out there must recognise that we we NEVER be cool, even if we try to fool ourselves by growing a neck beard and wearing a baseball cap the wrong way round.
