"It’s nothing to reminisce fondly about but we were very poor, so poor that our neighbours would give me comics when their own kids had finished with them.
Their children were all girls though so, even now, what I can’t tell you about the Cathy and Claire column in Jackie and the Four Marys in Bunty just isn’t worth remembering. (Incidentally, when I used to work with Morrissey, I once proudly told him the above fact and he told me that Courtney Love was also an expert on the Four Marys. I have no idea how the Marys crossed the Atlantic or how they affected Courtney’s music, lyrics or lifestyle but am glad to share such an arcane knowledge with such an esteemed rocker.)"
I was watching a "Nomadland" movie screener tonight and right at the start of the movie the main character goes to work at a Amazon factory. They are having lunch and a lady (Angela) has a bunch of Morrissey tattoos which they show on screen. She quotes "When your laughing and dancing and finally living you hear my voice in your head and you think of my kindly", after she says that "another Smiths lyric I have is". (The Smiths song Rubber Ring). She also quotes that her favorite lyric is "Home is it just a word? Or is it something that you carry within you"? (Morrissey song "Home Is A Question Mark). Then she says "his lyrics are very deep". Obvious reference to Morrissey but no mention of his name.
