Kerri Koch's new documentary, Passions Just Like Mine, regarding Morrissey's Hispanic fans in Southern California, unsurprisingly sold out its recent Los Angeles premiere, he's beloved here after all. Of course his fans are so possessive one couldn't help but notice what seemed to be a bit of a bizarre backlash against the movie at the m-solo website. I mean its an endlessly interesting matter, how pop musicians in general and one as seemingly  idiosyncratic as Morrissey in particular reach across cultural chasms. Or a pond even. Anyway Kerri was kind enough to share her Happy Shopping tips with us...
