first_img https://twitter.com/slicingeyeballs/status/900134736776937472 Email News Facebook This past September, a bar in L.A.’s predominantly Latino Boyle Heights community also hosted an all-Morrissey karaoke night commemorating the release of the singer’s new album, Low In High School.Given all this hubbub over Morrissey’s Hollywood Bowl appearances, fans will surely be keeping their fingers crossed that the heating system at the venue is in better shape than the one in Paso Robles, Calif., where Morrissey just last weekend cancelled his appearance moments before he was scheduled to take the stage, citing “cold weather” (yes, in California).Here’s hoping this weekend’s projected weather forecast (high 60s) is warm enough.Songwriting Prompts: Help Yourself Write Better And FasterRead more Twitter center_img Hollywood Bowl exit on Los Angeles’ 101 freeway hit with guerrilla Morrissey promotion https://t.co/3aL2ivmDc2 (h/t @derekpaulscott) pic.twitter.com/Zcr1dzWe2N— Slicing Up Eyeballs (@slicingeyeballs) August 22, 2017 City to honor “the man who put the ‘M’ in Moz Angeles”Brian HaackGRAMMYs Nov 9, 2017 – 12:46 pm Apparently, some of the folks involved in Los Angeles municipal government are big-time Morrissey fans.The brooding, at times cantankerous, alt-pop singer/songwriter has a pair of highly anticipated sold-out shows scheduled for Nov. 10–11 with special guest Billy Idol at L.A.’s historic Hollywood Bowl.In honor of the former Smiths frontman’s upcoming shows, L.A.’s City Council has declared Nov. 10 “Morrissey Day” in the City of Angels.City councilwoman Monica Rodriguez commented, “Morrissey Day honors the man who put the ‘M’ in Moz Angeles [sic], an icon whose music continues to touch and uplift countless people across the globe.”L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti joined Rodriguez in praising the announcement, saying, “Morrissey Day celebrates an artist whose music has captivated and inspired generations of people who may not always fit in — because they were born to stand out.”The mayor and city council aren’t the only one getting wrapped up in Moz mania — the day after Morrissey’s Hollywood Bowl dates were announced this past summer someone snuck out onto an overpass above U.S. Highway 101 and slapped a giant Morrisey sign reading above the exit ramp for the Bowl.

Watch out for the Bikers

first_imgToday, Delhi’s men are doing something that nobody thought of, they are asking women to take charge of their lives. How?Realising that their women are yet not safe in the Capital, a Delhi based biker group Bikers for Good are organising a ride cum rally from South Extension till Kingdom of Dreams on Sunday morning. The ride is called I’m Power- Delhi Bikers Empower Women.This ride also marks the second anniversary of the group. The ride has been planned by the founder of the group Mohit Ahuja. ‘It is practically impossible to be with our women all the time, to protect them. The government doesn’t seem to show interest towards taking serious action. Looking at the recent cases I feel all that has happened in the name of women empowerment till date has gone waste as it is mere education given to the men,’ he said. The ride has been gaining a considerable amount of support from the people looking forward to attend it and most of these are men. All the bikers are invited with their female friends. However, going against stereotypes of Men being ‘Bikers’, the ride consist of both men and women riding together for the common cause. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’With this ride, Bikers for Good is raising many issues like female sexual abuse, their safety and also they are asking the government for more practical solutions regarding women safety. Talking about the same Ahuja says, ‘There is only one solution to this problem, arm the women! If every woman has the power to protect themselves, then we don’t need women empowerment. If the government can distribute free condoms, medicines and vaccines in government hospitals and dispensaries, then why not pepper sprays?’Never before have Delhi’s men given the baton in the hands of the women and asked them to be their own saviours. Bikers for Good looks at distributing free pepper sprays to these women, highlighting the fact that they can take responsibility for themselves rather than depending on anybody else.last_img read more
