|GEORGE WITH HIS FRINGE COMBED|
It surely won't be long before reviews aren't needed at all. With the rapid advancement in camera phone technology, and with the advent of YouTube, it is now possible to watch a concert from start to finish, albeit that we usually have to wait a few hours before footage is posted. The next advancement will be concert goers loading LIVE videos straight onto YouTube from their camera phones. For now, if we want to follow a concert online 'as it happens', we are pretty much limited to twitter postings, which is VERY similar to 'watching' a football match on teletext circa 1980.
George's review of Saturday's concert revealed that he saw NO roses, so what happened to the BLUE ROSES that we KNEW were being taken by Chio and El Presidente Kyle? Chio has reported that she threw hers towards the stage, but has NO idea if it reached. Kyle has tweeted to say that his was taken off him as he went in, and was told it would go to the manager! WHAT manager?

WHO ARE WE?
GOB (@GirlOnBike2468101214) has suggested a young Anthony Hopkins, but I can't see it. Romina (@Caterita200203029849) STILL thinks Gina Lollobrigida, which certainly is a possibility, but the picture doesn't appear to be from 'Woman in Rome' as suggested by Romina. I thought it was maybe from 'Hunchback of Notre Dame', but that too doesn't look to be right. Do those statues in the background jog anybody's memory?

After finishing his re-tweets, MW then tweeted:
"Whom does Trouble love?"
It's coming, I tell yer, I feel it in me bones, and I know I've been wrong before, but having now accepted BLUE ROSE, I honestly believe Morrissey is going to sing it for us. NOBODY (accept possibly Rosy Mires) will bat an eyelid if he sings it, and the Solowers will just write that they wish he'd sung 'Billy Budd' or 'King Leer'. It's now just a case of WHEN?
IF YOU'RE L'00'KING FOR TROUBLE, IS MAINE THE RIGHT PLACE?
MW also tweeted that he is working on his tour journal, but after all the false promises with the last ones that never materialised, is he to be believed? It's a rum do when you can't even trust an attention seeking parody to come up with the goods!
Other tweet highlights from Our Mozzer:
'@dobcrossdaz' asked: "When's your autobiography out?"
MW replied: "2041. It will largely focus on my gardening career 2012-2041."
'@MSMasoet' asked: "When are you coming to South Africa?"
MW replied: "As soon as you remove Neutral Milk Hostel from your profile."
It would appear that MSMasoet has NOT yet removed the picture from his profile, and so his WHOLE country could miss out on seeing Moz because of it. You think I'm joking, I'm not!
MW: "My career has died of natural causes but the inquest has only just begun."
'@DavinaElizabeth' asked: "Help out an unsigned band!"
MW replied: "I'm afraid all my time is occupied trying to help out a dazzling unsigned band: my unsigned band."
MW: "I remain extremely relevant in Alzheimer's homes throughout England."
'@Harry_Earnshaw' tweeted: "Life is more wholesome when @MorrisseysWorld is around."
MW replied: "You make me sound like a supermarket loaf; white, thickly-sliced and palatably grainy."
And so onto tonight's leisure centre of choice, the 'State Theatre' in Portland, Maine. In many ways, it's not dissimilar to old Mozzer himself; not much to look at from the outside, but the inside is full of beauty and awe.
'The State Theatre' is an Art deco building, which in 1982, at the age of 53, fell upon hard times, and was leased out as a porn theatre.....I am saying NOTHING....but I AM smiling as I write this! The State has also TWICE had large lumps of ceiling plaster fall down during concerts, but this is unlikely to happen tonight, as 1.5 million dollars has recently been spent on a complete renovation of the decrepit old thing....again, I shall say nowt!
