However: "To add even more intrigue, let’s not forget that Coachella Festival promised to go 100% vegetarian next year, in an effort to attract a Smiths reunion. Morrissey himself made the following withering comment about the offer: “Fascinatingly they made it clear that they would ‘not require’ the Smiths’ bass player or drummer… which I thought certainly said something.”" I just read about this today on Pitchfork. I'd go to a veg fest for The Smiths. Chicken cones be damned! (God, it pains me to say that.) But if they were at Glasto... I mean, lets talk about the definition of the usually overused word, "epic." Flip to "epic" in the dictionary, and there it will say "All four members of The Smiths play Glastonbury." or even "Morrissey and Johnny Marr perform as The Smiths at Glastonbury." ...I could simultaneously cry and pee on myself if I get to see Mozz sing Ask IN England. AT GLASTO. I will also say it right now - unless Radiohead is a direct conflict at Glasto - I will ride the rail all day (and maybe the day before) if the Smiths are booked. UGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHH.
I walked away from the computer and thought - wait a minute. WHO CARES IF RADIOHEAD IS A CONFLICT, ITS THE SMITHS. So, mark my words - This girl is a rail rider if The Smiths play Glasto. Just sayin'.

I am leaning more and more to not going next year. Of course I would like to, but I think my time is best used to see my mom and family since I have not visited or seen my mom in 5 years. I would prefer to have someone to roll with as opposed to traveling there by myself.
I will still most likely attempt at getting tickets and will play it by ear from there. But I am nuetral on it. I will have 14 vacation days saved up by June so that is not an issue, just where I use them.
Just checked airfare and orbitz shows $1352 from DFW to Heathrow. In comparison, DFW to Helsinki was $1184.
Everyone that is trying for tickets and wants to be a part of our group effort, please send me a PM with the following info: Your full name Your registration number Your registered zip code Your registered e-mail address How many $80 deposits you are willing to purchase (you can purchase up to 8)
Morrissey: “The Smiths are never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever going to reunite – ever”
Well, that leaves a tiny window of room for possibility, doesn't it?
Signed, ever the optimist
And also, I'd take just Moz and Marr as "the Smiths." I could handle that. So, you know, that falls outside of the enTIRE Smiths as a group realm, so it COULD happen. ....Don't rain on my parade Whore! It could totally happen. Totally.
