Los Angeles Morrissey fans (is there any other kind?), here’s the moment you’ve been waiting for:

PEPSI SMASH will feature four hit artists per episode. If you want to be a part of this unforgettable event, please click Pepsi Smash or visit www.1iota.com and choose PEPSI SMASH on May 25th to request tickets.

This looking-no-older-than-25 business sounds like the PR equivalent of “no fatties,” doesn’t it? I was carded buying beer on Saturday, but I was a teenager when The Smiths broke up. One of those should count for something, right?
In other L.A.-related Morrissey news, I read a review of the My Life with Morrissey DVD this weekend and it sounds creepily hilarious. Check it out:
Jackie, a hard-working assistant at a TV studio, pours herself into her work with an odd enthusiasm that her co-workers embrace with mixed feelings. An obsessed Morrissey fan, her off hours are spent talking to posters and photos that plaster her apartment. Her nights are spent scouring places Morrissey has been spotted around L.A. One fateful night things take a turn for the worse when by chance her dream comes true. Meeting Morrissey in a deserted parking lot, Jackie’s world is suddenly turned upside down.
UPDATE: I got Pepsi Smashed.
