THIS IS AWESOME




THIS IS ODD



I mean, it's kind of weird that the king of Rape Rock is a fan of the Smiths. You have to wonder if he knows how utterly gay Morrissey is. Morrissey is so gay that you can catch gay from listening to him. This is why I'm hopelessly devoted to the Moz (so much so that baby #1 is gonna be named Moz). I guess that if at least one mook decided to pick up a Smiths album because Fred was wearing their t-shirt, and liked them, then all is alright and the terrorists haven't won yet.

Speaking of our President, Gays, and Terrorists... My brother suggested that Bush should've said they were gonna fight and keep troops in Iraq until they made gay marriages legal there. He thinks Bush is a retard, is for Gay Marriages, and a republican.

i'm perturbed that he's wearing a smiths shirt. he should never be allowed to wear that shirt. ever.

he should be flogged.

That tag is the coolest thing ever.

For the record, I've never made a public statement on Bush's mental abilities. However, his expansion of the federal gov't wasn't on my list of intelligent things to do. And, on gay marriage, all I've ever said was, "#*@%'em... let them pay alimony".

He's only wearing a Smiths shirt because it's hip and cool to do so in LA... I bet you if Durst had a gun to his head and had to name 5 Smiths albums, he couldn't do it...

... even worse, I bet his "stylist" picked it out for him. Ewww.

"I bet you if Durst had a gun to his head and had to name 5 Smiths albums, he couldn't do it"

I bet that if i put a gun up to your head you wouldn't be able to either since they only released 4 albums. ;)

The Smiths, Meat Is Murder, The Queen is Dead, and Strangeways, Here We Come

This is, of course, not counting Rank, which was a live album, and doesn't count in my book.

you could count their 2 singles compilations: louder than bombs and hatful of hollow.... although if you're hardcore, you probably don't count them...

Why does this thread remind me of the opening to Ryan Adams' "Heartbreaker" album?

if i had a gun to fred dursts' head, my first impulse would not be to ask a trivia question. everytime i see a photo of him in that shirt it makes me so so so angry. it's offensive.

Speaking of gay, quite a shocker from our governor yesterday, eh?

Regarding that tag, I think it comes from bag-maker www.tombihn.com. They made a t-shirt for charity featuring the text of the tag, after someone noticed it and it was reported on in the news. I don't think they sell their products in France (though they probably do indirectly via their website) but they are close to Canada, a country in which French is pretty popular.

From what I remember, the company officially disavowed the notion that the label was anti-Bush. The official statement said something about how whoever put that on the label was making a joke about the *company* president, which is just rediculous, imo. They probably didn't expect anyone to notice it, but when the media found out, they backtracked, not wanting to lose their part of the republican market.

yay for the shirt label, boo for the Durst photo...he's gross and it's wrong that he's wearing a Smiths shirt.

The tag label is fake.

fred durst can wear what he wants to. a fucking t-shirt that's cool is all that it takes to get into the misshapes party so why can't durst try to folloe trends? i understand and am equally pissed that durst uses the symbolism of the smiths to seem cool but few of us hipsters are any different. jesus i'm tired, but i have to point out that the smiths weren't cool for a long while. somehow, they currently seem hip but anyone, like myself, that liked them before the postmodern popularity, takes issue with the smith neophyte fans. the smiths are the best, pure and simple. s.t.

Fred Durst is starting to look like Michael Stipe.

gay-marriages in Iraq seems like a great idea. I think it's possible since the whole country will become Las Vegas in less than 10 years.
