The Unimaginable Last Hug


21 December 2015

The Unimaginable Last Hug

Our South American tour has ended; each night will sustain for eternity. How could this be, now, when most of the audiences weren't even born at the time of the Smiths? This tour was our highest triumph, and please believe me, we passionately cherish all of the many thousands who turned up, called out, jumped up, and refused to leave.

The most difficult list to compile, but:

1. Lima (Peru) Parque De La Exposicion
2. Asuncion (Paraguay) Yacht Y Golf Club
3. Montevideo (Uruguay) Teatro De Verano
4. Brasilia (Brazil) Net Live
5. Buenos Aires (Argentina) Luna Park
6. Sao Paulo (Brazil) Citibank Hall
7. Sao Paulo (Brazil) Teatro Renault
8. Buenos Aires (Argentina) Teatro Opera Allianz
9. Santiago (Chile) Movistar Arena
10. Quito (Ecuador) Teatro Nacional Casa De La Cultura
11. Santiago (Chile) Primavera Fauna
12. Rio (Brazil) Citibank Hall

although, admittedly, the excitement level between 1 and 12 consists only of the most finely split hairs. I am most proud to see how the song 'World peace is none of your business' has struck such strong emotion in people across the world. But the music industry, of course, no longer connects with real people, and I am sorry that things are the way they are ... the slightest dross meriting arms full of awards bought for them by their labels. It is an amputation, and we feel it with great sadness. The major labels are urged to turn it all into dust, and YOU are what they dare not look at.

Thank you, South America! Your love is gratefully accepted and returned tenfold.

Four International Awards For Morrissey


29 July 2015

Four International Awards For Morrissey

Morrissey has been offered four international awards in recognition of his contribution to music and also for his work in aid of social justice for animals. The awards are:

1. Mercy For Animals "Hidden Heroes Gala Award", to be presented to Morrissey in Los Angeles in August.

2. People For The Ethical Treatment of Animals "Lifetime Achievement Award" to be presented at the Hollywood Palladium in September.

3. Trinity College Dublin's Philosophical Society's Gold Medal Award for Contribution To Music, scheduled for October.

4. Farm Sanctuary's Special Award for "promoting compassionate living and ending cruelty to farm animals", to be presented in New York in October by Jon Stewart (of the Daily Show) and Tracey Stewart.

Morrissey has commented: "I do nothing in my life with the hope of receiving an award. I do not make music with the hope that I might be patted on the back with a meaningless Grammy bought for me by a major label. Almost everything I do and say goes against the sympathies of the music industry, therefore I am very proud to be offered these four very intelligent awards, and the aim of my acceptance is only and purely with the hope that by doing so I can draw further attention to the modern Holocaust of the meat industry. My firm hope, of course, is that all people will arrive at sophisticated and compassionate enlightenment by understanding how the hidden hell of factory farming and the slaughterhouse and dairy farming is destroying the planet far more than any other known entity, and is an unimaginably evil torture for animals who ask for nothing but to be allowed a chance to live their lives. Animal consumption also places a deadly strain on medical care throughout the US and the U.K, a strain no different to the results of tobacco intake. The meat industry is rotting the world and appeals only to the deadliest aspects of human behavior. The blood-lust must end; KFC and McDonalds and Burger King have made enough money and have murdered more sentient beings than they could have ever wished for. The world does not want or need it any more. The yellow McDonalds "M" is the modern swastika. Meat shits on the world, and social justice for animals will automatically lead to less social violence. Please do not accept the political darkness of animal slaughter. The future is fantastic due to the courage of PETA and Mercy For Animals and Farm Sanctuary. The hellward heart of animal slaughter is closing down as the evil that nobody wants. The world has arrived at a new sophistication, and if you stick with your chicken wings and your cheeseburgers then you remain in darkness and you lack the courage to say 'no' to the politico-economic tyranny of indoctrination. The fact that it is a federal offense in the United States to film inside an abattoir tells us all we need to know: they do not want you to see what goes on inside because, if you knew, the wholesale mass murder within would cause a global uproar. Approve of the meat industry and you approve of Auschwitz. There is no difference. We are forced-fed the disproportionate warning that ISIS constitutes the biggest threat to our societies, yet ISIS has not enacted one atom of destruction equal to the dangers facing all of us by the meat industry.
Please wake up and be a part of the new. The meat industry is the most lethal weapon of mass destruction. Thank you for reading this."
