The Mozziah has been posting a lot of images of the 'All Seeing Eye', 'Freemasonary' and 'Illuminati'. To be honest, I too was struggling to get the relevance but I have spent the last few hours researching the subject and now understand why The Mozziah is bringing it to everybody's attention. I have never been a great one for conspiracy theories, and to think that there are 'forces' at work controlling the world, seems ridiculous to the extreme, but is it? Do Freemason's control the music business? The World IS run by 'boy clubs' all over the world. Governments, lawyers, public schools, corporate businesses, religions are all run by 'The Boys', so why not the music industry? Is Morrissey suggesting that Freemasons are behind all the major record labels, and this is why he can't get a deal? Rather than me harp on about it, may I suggest a visit to www.thedoggstar.com, it really is fascinating. Look at all the celebrities who openly admit to being Freemason's. Watch the Shaquille O'Neal video, he wears a freemason's ring and when asked about it, calls it "his business." It would also appear that Hip Hop is full of Freemasons.
Or is Morrissey bringing Freemasonry to everybody's attention because he IS one? Apparently Oscar Wilde was a Freemason, and was fascinated with the whole order. He took his role seriously, but was eventually expelled for not paying his dues. I once read that one of the rings that Morrissey wears is a 'Tigers Eye' ring. Roman soldiers used to wear Tiger eye because they believed it was 'All Seeing'! So is Moz a Freemason? Could be! But I'd be surprised, he doesn't go out!
Last month, I went to see the screening of a new film called 'Papadopoulos and Sons', which was written and directed by Marcus Markou. It was a pleasant enough film, and I briefly met Marcus to thank him for inviting me. Marcus was very busy so I didn't try and take up too much of his time, but I did ask him if he believed that Morrissey was behind MorrisseysWorld. His reply was, "Oh yes, it has to be." What I didn't ask him was if he actually knew. The only reason I knew of Marcus was because MorrisseysWorld follows him on twitter, which is why I started following him. The only people MW follows on twitter are; 'the original MW followers', a few tedious celebs who he enjoys laying into (although Richard Madeley has now apparently blocked him), and a very few others, of which Marcus is one. It hadn't occurred to me that Marcus might know The Mozziah, but perhaps he does.
The reason I am writing about Marcus Markou, is because on MorrisseysWorld, just before it pulled up the shutters, somebody posted the following,
"Marcus Markou, the only person who is alleged to have met that idiotically secretive rodent, told me that the rodent confided in him that he was behind the blog."
I obviously thought nothing of this silly stab in the dark by 'anonymous', but the comment that followed it, written by somebody calling themselves 'Sherlock', made for far more interesting reading, they wrote,
"Marcus Markou appeared out of nowhere into this MW saga recently. This minor, unknown playwright soon met 'The Rat's Back', who is otherwise highly duplicitous and deceitful in regards to his identity. Why would he readily meet Markou when he won't give anyone else even a first name?"
Sherlock then goes on to say,
"So what are Markou's plays about? 'Age-Sex-Location, his play about chat rooms and virtual worlds'. A review of another play: 'A bourgeois sitcom with a macabre heart and a central character who responds to stress by indulging in a satirical dream-life'."
Sherlock then finishes off by saying,
"I'd be willing to bet good money his next play is going to be about paranoid types who believe in conspiracies and equate pop stars with messianic figures. I am arguing this has likely been one big, FREE experiment for him to study human behavior for whatever project he's working on. If it is indeed him, it's a good sign of a lack of imagination on his part."
Sherlock later returned (presumably after more detective work) and added a quote from Markou, which read, "If we could dramatise journalistic pieces, why not emails, chat rooms and websites? Richard and I worked on the script together for a year, researching the internet and developing the characters."
So, is Marcus Markou behind MorrisseysWorld? Well he can join me and a number of others who have been accused of it, but no, Marcus isn't behind MorrisseysWorld, "MORRISSEY IS BEHIND IT!!!!" I have wondered what the link was between Marcus and Moz, and I would guess that Morrissey knew of Markou's work, perhaps introduced by Boy George, or the other way around? Boy George has also attended a screening of 'Papadopoulos and Sons', so perhaps 'Boy' is behind MorrisseysWorld? Back to work Sherlock, and when you and all the others stop looking for somebody else to point your finger at, you'll see the answer right in front of your face, where it's always been.
