I don’t dislike any of their songs, no…not by a long shot. I must confess that I’m not particularly keen on the way Morrissey’s current band handles certain Smiths songs though - “This charming man”, for example. But no, there aren’t any songs that I actually dislike from either catalogue. :)
Aside from those ones I posted before? (Which as I said before, don’t scan too well because of the printing style.) I’m sure there are others in books and magazines, and there’s one from a calendar a couple of years back too…along with the watch pics, I’ll dig around for some more Madstock photos as well later today. :)
To be honest, I don’t know what brand watch he wears! (Or wore in the past…) However, later today I will try to remember to search around for some pics that show his watches in detail, and try to scan them nice and big for a closer look. ;) I’ll let you know what I find out!
PS: Glad you like the blog - thank you for saying so!
What people in my offline life?! I have no friends and no colleagues…just two parents and a brother who don’t care what I do online, as long as it’s not illegal and doesn’t involve charging things to their credit cards. ;)
A bit bigger, yes…the way the photos were originally printed don’t actually make for very good hi-res scans (and they’re matte prints, to boot), but I’ll upload a bigger version in a moment…hold tight. :)
I don’t think the gladioli or daffodils have any specific symbolism besides that Morrissey particularly liked them, but from a practical perspective, the reason he started puttings the daffs in his back pocket was simply to free up his hands while onstage, having claimed that carrying them became rather clumsy after a while. As for the symbolism of the flowers in general, I posted some quotes in reply to a very similar question a few days ago…it won’t be very far back in my archives yet. ;)
