Who is the least cool person on the planet?

Recommended Posts

Cant see how anyone can say Albarn when he invented football. Until he started going to ol' Stamford Bridge in 92 guv'nah, none of us had heard of it before. He also invented the baggy Madchester scene 5 years after the Mondays and the Stone Roses started. He invented BritPop after Suede and Pulp started. He invented the rap, dub and rock combo that is Gorillaz. That had never been done a million times before. He had Paul Simonon and Mick Jones in a band with him, which had never been done before.

This man isnt a try hard at all. He would never spend a decade doing publicity stunts, charity matches, licensing his music to adverts and appearing on every TV show that invited him and then turn around and start burying the likes of Pop Idol and trying to act as the example of not selling out. Its hard working cor blimey working class lads like Damon Albarn that make me get up in the morning and know "I can do it, too."

Your ramblings make little sense to me. Did you just cut a promo? Magic.

he has Morrissey-like levels of ineptitude when trying to give an opinion. 

This couldn't be more wrong if you tried.  Morrissey is more known for his interviews than his music these days and he knows exactly what he is doing.

You think so? All that nasty ill-expressed nationalistic shite? Back in the NME days he was an interesting guy to listen to. Now he's a reactionary old queen. Seriously, Keith? Some of the things he's said recently?

Yep, he knows exactly what he is saying and which bits will be used for clickbait.  He's working you, brother.

I honestly don't know if you're being sarcastic or not. You have perhaps worked me, so I'll leave it. 

It was to do with you drawing a comparison between Albarn being inept giving an opinion and Morrissey being equally inept.  The latter is not inept in the slightest when giving his opinion, he is very calculated.

Well, my point, perhaps expressed poorly, was that they both come across pretty badly whenever I've heard them on chat shows or in print. You're right, Morrissey is more calculated, but what does that say about him, given some of the moronic things he's said? He might be working, but it doesn't make his worldview any less shameful. It begs the question of why a man of his undoubted talent feels the need to still work the marks by saying stupid shit. He's gay. The Smiths stood for, I don't know, outsiders or whatever, yet there he is sounding very much like everything he once rallied against, in his prancing way. I don't think that's cool.

To be fair, that's something that can be said about all professional trolls, like Hopkins and Milo. If they mean what they say, they're cunts. If they don't mean what they say, they're still cunts.

That's a completely different point though and has fuck all to do with the ineptitude of expressing an opinion.

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. Now 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.

So what? We're adults. Let's discuss it. You jumped up pantry boy, you!
