The writing of the story has reminded me of many things, long since forgotten, and the evidence I keep stumbling across as I read back through my blog, has made me chuckle, as I realise just how GLARINGLY obvious it was (and still is), that Morrissey is MorrisseysWorld.
There has been NO news in the past week of TRM (The Real Morrissey), or indeed of his ill mother, Betty. The MorrisseysWorlders have all left messages of support, and Morrissey and his mum remain in everybody's thoughts.
The Twitterdilly Arms is virtually empty, NONE of us are going there at the moment, the world of Morrissey is on hold, although I did of course pop in at lunchtime today to countdown the Top 10, SOME things MUST go on (see chart below).
A few days ago, GOB posted something about the Solow place, and like a fool I felt compelled to read the article GOB was referring to, but it was so utterly vile, I pulled myself away. It would appear that the Solow place has fallen to even greater depths of depravity, and the in-house fighting makes Lord of the Flies look like a picnic in the park. It is a shame that Morrissey fans like GOB feel that they have to visit Solow, but it remains the number 1 place to receive Moz news, and without an alternative, some fans will continue to visit it. It just goes to show, if you're an addict with a habit, and you need a fix, you'll go ANYWHERE to get it. Solow is the dirty needle of the Moz world.
On Day 394 of Following The Mozziah, when Morrissey started his US tour, I posted the audience figures for my blog. It showed that I was getting more hits from the US than from anywhere else, including the UK.
My latest weekly figures show that this has reversed. It is also interesting to note that I've had a number of hits from Australia this past week.
On average, my blog receives approximately 400 hits a day. It is difficult to know how many of these hits are from the same people reading different pages, but I would think I have a regular daily readership of approximately 60 people. When the MorrisseysWorld blog was up and running, it would receive between 600-800 hits a day, so I would guess, it had a regular daily readership of about 100 people.
If you are looking for some kind of understanding as to WHY MorrisseysWorld hasn't gone viral, and WHY hardly anybody takes roses to concerts, it is because only 100 of Morrissey's hundreds of thousands of fans, are aware of it. Morrissey ADVERTISED MorrisseysWorld THREE times on True To You, but his fans misread the adverts, except for a few, who when they looked at him, they actually saw him.
