“Tattoos, after all, are a passionate, usually doomed assertion of mastery of your own destiny, or at least a defiant embrace of one that you cannot control.”
Mark Simpson, Saint Morrissey: A Portrait of This Charming Man by an Alarming Fan

“Bond is now the Bond Girl of the opening credits. It’s his silhouette we see – and nary a dancing naked babe in sight. Perhaps to compensate for this, in the actual film he gets his tits out a lot. He emerges from the sea glistening, showing off his pumped boobs, like Ursula Andress in ‘Dr No’ — save his nipples are more prominent. Bond has finally become his own Bond Girl.”
Mark Simpson, Metrosexy

“The artistic disposition is little more than an extreme form of sulking.”
Mark Simpson, Saint Morrissey: A Portrait of This Charming Man by an Alarming Fan
