Oh no, there's no such thing as too much Smiths/Morrissey. <!--emo&:)-->Image<!--endemo--> & Ebay is always wonderful, although I spend far too much on there as it is. <!--emo&:P-->Image<!--endemo-->

The Severed Alliance? Yeah, I got it for Christmas, I'm reading it at the moment. Well, obviously not at this very moment, but you know what I mean! It's so interesting, I love it, but I've almost finished it... It's one of those books where you don't want to finish it because then it'll be over but you can't really stop reading! There is just so much detail, it's great. Like, I never knew Morrissey went back to college after he left St Mary's! Haha, I've been boring all my friends to death with my interesting (to me, anyway) new-found Moz facts. <!--emo&;)-->Image<!--endemo-->

I decree today that life is simply taking and not giving
England is mine, it owes me a living
But ask me why and I'll spit in your eye
Oh, ask me why and I'll spit in your eye
But we cannot cling to the old dreams anymore
No, we cannot cling to those dreams
Does the body rule the mind or does the mind rule the body?
I dunno...
Under the iron bridge we kissed
And although I ended up with sore lips
It just wasn't like the old days anymore
No, it wasn't like those days
Am I still ill...?

I can't believe you've got Mick Middles' book, Reclamation. I thought that had long since been consigned to the dustbin of history.



Or 'eBay', as it's now known. Is that where you got it from?
i shouted out 'who killed the kennedys?' when after all it was you and me

I hear that Reclamation, I spend far too much on ebay as well - it's the fact that I've got so much uni work to do in front of the computer and naturally I end up just looking... <!--emo&:P-->Image<!--endemo-->

Glad you bagged yourself a copy Girl Afraid, I felt like that too, I didn't want it to end either, I knew nothing about the Smiths really when I read it so it was all new to me... I chose to bore my mum with it all - she at least feigns interest... sometimes. Ah the joy of all those new facts, I try to reclaim that feeling by rereading it but it's just not the same, something like heroin compared to methadone... or something...what a crap analogy!!! <!--emo&:lol:-->Image<!--endemo-->

Ha, yeah, my friends generally listen and then go "Wow." (that was sarcastic, typing doesn't really do tones of voice...) or one friend decided to take my interesting snippet completely the wrong way and use it to argue that Morrissey was a slut. <!--emo&:blink:-->Image<!--endemo-->

I keep seeing some really good Smiths books on eBay but they usually end up going for more than I can afford, especially since my friend has just decided we're going up to London to see a show in half term and I need to get saving for that... <!--emo&:unsure:-->Image<!--endemo-->

I know a guy who owned a second hand record shop in my hometown [Hot Rats in Sunderland, plug plug for anyone who's ever in the area. <!--emo&:P-->Image<!--endemo-->], I did my work experience there & he & everyone who worked there knew how much I loved The Smiths. Anyway, I got the book from his shop, I think it belonged to one of the guys who worked there.
