Following The Mozziah Day 293 Tuesday July 3rd 2012


I think it is fair to presume that a) The Mozziah is holed up in a hotel somewhere (possibly in France or Belgium) and b) he has completely lost interest in his blog thingy. At 7pm last night, '@MorrisseysWorld' returned to twitter and spent five hours tweeting. It would appear from his tweets, that he was also watching tv and drying his hair. Would the REAL Morrissey spend five hours tweeting? Would the REAL Morrissey watch telly in a hotel room? Would the REAL Morrissey dry his hair? Surely the REAL Morrissey would sit writing songs all evening, or would read some poetry, or watch an old Italian film?

'Our Mozzer' started by sending a tweet to one of the original MorrisseysWorlders, '@EcubyanPoet', saying "It was good of the Nobel people to give Obama a peace prize BEFORE he had the opportunity to start YET another war." It was at this point that I logged on to twitter, so I posted my blog of yesterday to '@MW' and he replied, "Reading it now while I blow-dry what remains of my hair to The New York Dolls." I cheekily replied, "Yes, I did notice a slight bald patch during the final bow. So, a dilemma, do you let it go all Prince Charles or Rooney it?" Old Mozzer took my impertinence well, which was rather lucky, because I'd touched on one of those subjects that doesn't get (h)aired very much, Mozzer's barnet.

Morrissey is of course very famous for his hair, and in the early years, his quiff would be about 4'3" in height. He has been very lucky to retain his hair well into his late forties (as he now likes to call 53!), where as some people, and I'm not necessarily saying me, haven't been so lucky. In the last year or so, a bald patch has started to appear on old Mozzer's crown, and he is no doubt aware of it, although he did tweet me back to say, "You're blocked while I inspect the footage on Youtube." One can only guess as to how Mozzer feels about his trademark hair slipping away, but I hope he is comfortable with it. He doesn't strike me as the sort of person that would consider having surgery, and his assaults on the likes of Rooney and Elton J, would suggest he won't go down that route, or indeed root.

It was cruel of me to point out the baldy thing, and of course it would never have been an issue for Simon Peter (The Rock) (not to be confused with the WWF wrestler of the same name) back in the year  30 AD, because old JC was not only a very hairy man (if all the artist's impressions are to be believed), but he also died at the age of thirty three, well before baldness had it's chance to take hold. Would Simon Peter have dared to draw reference to JC balding, and more to the point, would JC have been such a 'big hit' if he had looked like William Hague? And indeed, would Johnny Marr have ever gone knocking on the door of 384 Kings Rd, thirty years ago, if Morrissey had looked like Matt Lucas?

I shall dwell no more on the hair issue, it is time to move on, and anyway, there are plenty of people who have becomes less hirsute without it effecting their career, with Bruce Willis being a prime example. Mind you, the same can't be said of Samson, things went decidedly down hill when his hair went. Perhaps Moz's hair loss has effected his writing prowess/ability to negotiate with the suits? Oh well, he's still got his health, and he's not Elton John, and hair loss will be a much harder pill for Russell Brand to swallow....he has so much more to lose....literally!

MW continued to tweet a variety of statements and put downs, with my favourite tweet being, "When things go wrong you can blame yourself (neurosis), blame nobody (wisdom), or blame every single person you now (Morrissey)."  He also tweeted, "I would never publicly admit I use twitter. The next stop would be an appearance on QI. never." 


I do hope that 'Our Mozzer' can muster up the enthusiasm to update his blog soon, but it is great to have him back on twitter. For those non believers who say that the REAL Morrissey probably isn't even aware of MorrisseysWorld, don't forget that REAL Morrissey has DENIED he is MW four times, so he is MORE THAN AWARE of it's existence, and the denial on TTY on September 14th last year, drew particular reference to the NEW twitter account. For REAL Morrissey to have denied it, and then denied  it again and again and again, it is reasonable to presume he reads MW. It is resonable therefore to say that the other HUGE list of coincidences AREN'T coincidences after all, and WHY, if Morrissey is so aware of MW, has he taken NO action to stop it? MW is calling himself MORRISSEY, he is tweeting AS MORRISSEY, he has ADMITTED on twitter that he IS Morrissey, and yet the non believers say he isn't. Perhaps something will happen at the Manchester concert, just like it did at the London Palladium, but perhaps this time it will be less subtle. Maybe there will be another TTY denial leading up to Manchester, to draw attention to MW?

Twitter is MADE for REAL Morrissey, and although he has stated that he will never ADMIT that MW is him, his twittercisms deserve a much larger audience, so I have a feeling that at Manchester, even if he doesn't reveal all, he will make it blatantly obvious that he is MW, and hopefully the world will start to listen. Every time you turn on the BBC news these days, they ALWAYS mention twitter, and the media would love Morrissey's view on EVERYTHING. It is criminal that 'Twit Moz' has not been unleashed on the world at large, and it is time he was. I get the feeling that he feels this too. Perhaps Morrissey will walk on stage in Manchester in a Justin Bieber t-shirt and say, "It dissapoints me that the subtlety hasn't worked, but never mind, welcome to MorrisseysWorld", before bursting into Trouble Loves Me....except Moz always opens with a fast one! Maybe, he'll be a little more subtle, and halfway through the concert he will say, "some of you may have heard of a website called MorrisseysWorld, can I just say, although it hardly needs saying, it is NOTHING to do with me and I find the content vulgar and crass", before THEN going into Trouble Loves Me.

In all truth, I DON'T expect to hear Trouble Loves Me in Manchester, but one thing is certain, the excitement is building, and in just 2 days time, the band will take to the stage in Belgium....with a new drummer.

  1. Thanks for posting Ratty. Just got home from work, made a cup of tea and settled down to read this. For a man (talking Moz here) who also abhors So-low, he knows pretty well what goes on on "t'internet"! But of course people still presume that he is as technologically minded as he was portrayed in the 'Importance of...' documentary - he couldn't possibly have moved on and embraced the virtual world!
    If there is one thing this whole 'episode' has taught me, is never to assume what other people think. We just don't know!

    3. Well, decision making has never been one of my best features. I even had the late Peter Cooke take the mick out of me because of it! However, as a woman it is my prerogative to be as indecisive and complicated as I like! :)

  2. Hi Rat! I'm so exited for the concert on Saturday and I'm hoping to find some anticipation for the new drummer! Take care dear Rat and don't give up!
