Pssst, teenagers: I don’t hear those keyboards clacking. Do you think that essay I assigned you today about the influence of early 1960s UK kitchen sink realism on the collected works of Morrissey is just going to write itself? Do you think S. 12th and the S. 12th Teen Party Annex is just some place where you can hang around idly and gab about spring cocktails all day? Sorry, kid. Try some other tumblelog. This tumblelog is a place for learning.
Also, your essays had better not contain the following sentences: “Morrissey, a singer and songwriter from Manchester, England included several references to the working class issues of kitchen sink realism in his 1980s-era songs for The Smiths and during his solo career in the 1990s and 2000s. As a teen, Morrissey was fascinated by such kitchen sink dramas as Coronation Street.” Because it’s straight from Wikipedia and I will know you plagiarized it.
And one more thing: don’t you dare “re-blog” that photo of Morrissey without properly crediting photographer Tom Sheehan. True, I stole the image above from some other website, but that doesn’t mean you should.
What, you’re frustrated by my adult hypocrisy? Well, put in your essay! That’s why I assigned it in the first place! What on earth do you think all those British kitchen sink dramas are about? What on earth do you think all those Morrissey lyrics are about? ADULT HYPOCRISY, FOR GOODNESS SAKE!
See, kids, you’re learning already!
