The #Sadvent Calendar – 2015

The Troubled Morrissey Twitter account (@troubledmozza) has the following bio: Everyday is like pun day. A tribute to the lyrical genius of Morrissey. I highly recommend you follow it if you are a Morrissey fan.

The song stuck with me.

I might not have heard “Flickr” at ...
