I am managing to wean myself off the internet. Since arriving home from cricket tour on Friday evening, I have resisted all temptation to log on to twitter, so there is a whole world carrying on that I am now no longer a part of. It has been made easier knowing that 'Our Mozzer' is no longer there ( I presume he is no longer there) and I have also been aided by the fact that I have hardly been at home in the past few days. Saturday, Sunday and Monday was wall to wall (or field to field) cricket, with many more games due this week, as long as the rain holds off.
Although I have managed to resist logging on to Twitter, I have had a quick peak at the MorrisseysWorld blog, but it has all but closed down. The home page is still there, but ALL the other pages/articles/parody stories have gone. We were promised one more parody story before shut down, but I either missed it, or The Mozziah changed his mind......he does seem to do that quite a lot!
I have decided that I will write my blog as and when I get an urge, or if 'Our Mozzer' reappears, but for now, it feels like a summer holiday. The only Morrissey related thing to catch my attention is the emergence on Youtube of the 'Studio In Session' series that Morrissey recorded in Dublin last summer, with Tony Visconti producing. It is superb, and features; 'The Kid's A Looker', 'Scandinavia', 'Action Is My Middle Name' and 'People Are The Same Everywhere'. When, oh when are we to get a new album with these new (getting older) tracks? Could it be that a record deal HAS been signed, and Morrissey is waiting to tie in the release with his autobiography launch, or is there REALLY still no deal?
The Olympics closing ceremony DIDN'T include 'There Is A Light That Never Goes Out', but DID include Take That and the Spice Girls....enough said.
I usually post my blog on twitter, but as I am no longer tweeting, I will just leave it here for people to find, although as there is no Mozziah to follow, it really isn't worth reading. Unfortunately, if you've reached this point, you have already read it. I shall now add a sentence at the top of the page, advising that this blog entry isn't worth reading, but usually when people read things like that, it compels them EVEN more to read on. All I can say is, I wasn't kidding! If anybody IS reading this, please feel free to post comments, and PLEASE let me know if I am missing anything.
And finally Esther, and finally Cyril, regular readers of my blog will remember that I attended the concert in Manchester with my friends 'Big Mick' and 'Midlife Matt', both of whom knew NOTHING of either MorrisseysWorld or my blog. Well, last night I received an email from 'Midlife Matt' telling me that whilst searching for reviews of the Manchester concert, he FOUND my blog. No doubt he is working his way back through it, but I'll save him the time, YES Matt, it REALLY IS Morrissey! 'Big Mick' remains none the wiser.
