Of course, TRM (The Real Morrissey) would NEVER say that, but that's just the point, 'Our Mozzer', or 'NotMorrissey', ISN'T Morrissey, he's a 'Parody Morrissey', although I, and a few others, happen to believe that this 'Parody Morrissey' account and the MorrisseysWorld blog, ARE written by the artist/bloke/poet/genius/thingy known as Morrissey. I should have emphasised 'A FEW', because the vast majority of Morrissey fans continue to believe that 'Our Mozzer' is some deluded nutter, and continue to mock those of us who can see that it's really Moz. Here's the latest tweet from our old friend Rob Pollard:
Pollard and his fellow mockers have STILL failed to come up with the name of the "deluded nutter" who is behind MorrisseysWorld, and they STILL haven't been able to explain the HUGE list of 'acts' undertaken by Morrissey on stage, which came DIRECTLY from the MW blog. Their best explanation is that TRM is just playing along with the MW blog, a stance that Our Mozzer himself has picked up on and adopted, but Our Mozzer doesn't fool me, TRM would NEVER play along with ANYTHING, he's the ultimate control freak.
It is much more far fetched to believe that TRM would 'play along' with some old blogger, than him actually being behind it.
The Solow lot dismissed MW eighteen months ago, with many of them believing that Walter Ego (aka Kevin 'Banjaxer' Marrinan) was behind it, but having seen TRM fulfill ALL the predictions from the MW blog, surely SOMETHING should have awoken the Solowers to the fact that Moz HAD to be involved, but it would seem that the whole thing is just too much for them to comprehend, so they have continued to just ignore it, hoping it will all go away. They don't want to believe, they are sleeping.
WALTER EGO PRETENDING TO BE MORRISSEY, BUT MORRISSEY DOES 'PLAY ALONG' ACCORDING TO ROSY MIRES.
Our Mozzer's Saturday tweets and retweets included some interaction with long term followers such as Rutger B. Devon (@EcubyanPoet), LizzyCat (@Lizzycatmoz), Sonya the Wardrobe Mistress (@sonyajayne7), GOB (@GirlOnBike1102), GWO (@girlwithout), Heathercat (@heathercat222) and Marcus the Greek (@PapaSonsFilm), and also included some observations, such as:
"The press ignore my twitticisms and instead focus on what Joey Essex ate last night and how Jordan spells, or rather misspells, basic words." I get the feeling that such observations will be going in Morrissey's autobiography, or at the very least, his diaries. Here are some more of Saturday's tweets:
"Antidepressants, iced tea, pop music, high literature, low comedy, black and white film. This is me."
"I am writing a novel. Is this good news or bad news?"
"Boredom is the cause of all genius."
"I have more chance of becoming an astronaut than getting a record deal."
It is hard to know if TRM is writing a novel, or if 'Parody Moz' is writing a novel, or if there actually IS a novel being written at all, but it would explain why Our Mozzer has given up writing his blog. I'm guessing TRM only ever started the whole 'Our Mozzer' twitter and blog thingies out of boredom, and perhaps the novel is another way of filling his time, because ultimately, Morrissey is STILL a 'pop star'.
Maybe Morrissey feels that he has reached a crossroads in his life, where due to the lack of a record deal, combined with the fact that he never wanted to end up like the old dinosaur pop stars who continue to go through the motions on stage, that his career as a singer is OVER! But Morrissey LIVES for the stage, so could he REALLY give it up, despite what he says? These conflicting feelings must be killing him! He's reached that 'horrible' age, but at least he has options, some of us have reached the same point of our lives, and have no sense of direction or purpose whatsoever, in fact, our only journey is on the conveyor belt to death.
ME HEADING TOWARD DEATH IN BORROWED SHOES
As I made myself a cup of tea at 7 o'clock yesterday morning, I logged on to catch up with Saturday's tweets, and was surprised to find Our Mozzer was already awake and tweeting. I couldn't stay, as I had a football match to go to, and I didn't get the chance to log back on again until yesterday evening, only to find that I'd missed a marathon session from Our Mozzer, which included digs at old favourites like Elton John and Stephen Fry, and also tweets that looked like they'd come from 'Morrissey' and NOT 'Our Mozzer'! Tweets such as:
"I wore a blue rose and nobody noticed; it's really laughable- ahhahahahah"
"If I cared what people thought, I'd never have left my bedroom and formed the Smiths. Since I don't care, I don't fear a thing."
Our Mozzer also tweeted:
"Some rather great surprises are in store for the BlueRoseSociety."
Just as I logged on yesterday evening, Our Mozzer tweeted:
''Let's gather in the usual place."
I knew this meant the MorrisseysWorld chat room, or as I like to think of it, the back room of 'Our Mozzer's Parody Gallery'.
OUR MOZZER'S SMALL BACK ROOM AT THE PARODY GALLERY
We all dashed to log on, knowing that the small room only has space for ten people. I was one of the lucky ones, logging in as 'Guest 209'. Also in the room were Morrissey1959, HeatherCat, LizzyCat, Menippus and Regi (@Regi_w). I can't remember who else was there, and as I had an indoor cricket match to go and play, I was unable to takes notes.
I stayed for the first five minutes of M1959 holding court, and it immediately felt far more intimate than the world of Twitter, in fact, it feels like TRM in the chat room, and NOT Our Mozzer. I suggested that Heather take notes, but she replied that she wasn't in a position to. M1959 immediately responded that note taking wasn't necessary, as we were in the MW chat room. I took it from that, that he likes the secrecy of the chat room, and maybe doesn't want things from there repeated, but as only ten people can fit in, and as not everybody is online during these sessions, members of 'Blue Rose' have come to rely on note taking to catch up on what they've missed.
I will have to leave it for others to leave comment as to what was said, although before I left, M1959 did say that when he wears a blue rose, it will be the sign for MW to take over from Solow. He said that a proper administrator would be needed, not like the traffic warden 'Uncle Skinny' at Solow. Both myself and Heather said that we'd help out, but I pointed out that the only way MW can take over from Solow, is if Morrissey is behind it. My reasoning for this stance, is that without Morrissey's backing, Morrissey fans just won't accept MorrisseysWorld. M1959 didn't like my negative attitude and fired back that he wasn't Morrissey, and that we should therefore do nothing. I left to go and play cricket.
Our Mozzer has returned briefly to twitter this morning, posting:
"A few people continue to demand that I am Morrissey. It makes me feel like leaving. But then the same happened with A Clark's diaries." Did Moz write Alan Clark's diaries?
Just for the record, the MW blog had received 322,117 hits when I wrote my blog on Wednesday, and by Saturday morning it was at 322,597, which meant that there had been just 480 hits in 3 days, or 160 a day. It would appear that with the blog having disappeared for so long, people have forgotten about it. On Sunday morning it was at 322,742 hits, up 145.
Our Mozzer's twitter followers stood at 8,258 on Friday, and after two days of tweeting, there are now 8,229, DOWN 29!
Limahl has gone from 2,480 on Friday, to 3,079 today, UP 599. I KNEW Our Mozzer should have gone on 'I'm A Celebrity'.
I've written enough for today, so I won't bother with Corby, McAlpine et al, although I must mention the tragedy of Grimsby's finest exciting X Factor. Ella woz robbed! I shall finish by saying that I have managed to purchase a ticket for Morrissey's concert in Brooklyn on January 11th, and I can't begin to explain how excited I am. It's not front row, I rejected the Row D tickets I was offered, and ended up with Row T. Next time, I will accept what I am offered first.
With Our Mozzer having tweeted that there are "great surprises in store for BlueRoseSociety", I am now feeling like a child waiting for Christmas. I have never seen Moz abroad, and in January, I'll get to see him twice.
53 sleeps til Brooklyn and only 51 til Greenvale!
