"EVERYDAY IS LIKE SUNDAY"

From BBC America's Anglophenia: "U.S. rock band Fate or Trouble has re-imagined Morrissey's Cold War ballad "Everyday Is Like Sunday" as a chirpy, Laguna Beach-ready summer tune. You guessed it: I hate it. Not as offensive as Mark Ronson's vandalism of "Stop Me If You Think That You've Heard This One Before," though."

And, I'm going to have to agree. I'm not a fan if either. Sigh. Poor Morrissey. Everyone wants to sing his songs. I wonder what he thinks about covers? Or, I wonder what any artist thinks about covers for that matter? I mean, I would guess you'd be flattered that someone enjoyed your music enough to want to do a cover of it, but it would be hard to hear something crummy happen.

In other brit-dish, Pete Doherty (his Wikipedia page looks like a rap sheet!) is a complete dick to his cat...?

Speaking of Wikipedia, I hope I get a Wikipedia page one of these days. (Hint, hint, hint...)

Awwww...Morrissey looks so cute in his Jon Stewart for president shirt!!
Would help with the Wiki, but I'm Wiki editing deficient. However, if someone wanted to help me...

You will shine in the annals of history. You will be more famous than jesus christ and The Beatles put together. Your Wikipedia references will be limitless and full of Gentiles disputing its authenticity and its essential elements. You'll be in academic books, many, many books. Some even containing photographs.

Morrissey is kind of an odd bird. I like some of his music, but he is strange.

Just thought I would pass along my favorite Smiths cover: Bow Wow Wow with an amazing version of I Started Something I Couldn't Finish. It is posted at www.myspace.com/bowwowwow

It disturbs and sickens me to learn about anyone who mistreats animals. How anyone can lack respect, appreciaton and gratitude for the sacredness of their precious and pure hearts will always escape me. Still. It's important to stay in the loop about these things. If we turn a blind eye, it keeps happening.
