THE FAWNING RAT CONTINUES 'FOLLOWING THE MOZZIAH'
The new MW parody piece is once again VERY funny, and this time there is no sign of Boz's 'Emu Leg Tits', he is back in the frock as Gaynor Tension. The other characters in the story are; Morrissey, Mikey Bracewell, ME, Jonathan Ross, Walter Ego, Broken and Mam, whose ban has obviously been rescinded. Russell Brand, whom is described as a "Shouty C***", also makes an appearance this time. The article has me crying along to 'Hold On To Your Friends', Moz showing some flesh, and Boz/Gaynor once again being mercilessly taunted. During a discussion about weight, Morrissey says, "This is how my last sleeve would have looked, had I eaten as much Caramac as Boz Boorer", and then posted the following picture:
The article finishes with Morrissey saying to me, "I'm sorry, just who 'are' you again?" before then denying that he either reads or writes the MorrisseysWorld blog. Brilliance, pure fawning brilliance.
A number of comments were left on my last blog entry from Saturday, with Romina pointing out the coincidence that just after the MW parody piece disappeared last Wednesday, True To You announced a concert in Mexico. The parody article had featured Morrissey singing 'Don't Make Fun of Daddy' in Spanish, and a number of Morrissey's hispanic fans refer to him as 'Daddy'. It's a sign! *Pauses for thought* Or do they call him Grand daddy? Or is it the Indonesian fans and NOT the hispanics? Oh well, a sign is a sign, no matter how ambiguous.
THE VIVE LATINO FESTIVAL IN MEXICO - THE SCRUM FOR A MOZ SHIRT ON MARCH 14TH COULD BE INTERESTING
Another person to leave comment on my Saturday blog was 'Moz Fiend', who wrote, "I have front row seats for Long Island and Brooklyn shows. I have general admission tickets to Atlantic City and Port Chester, NY and I plan on queuing up early so I can be as near to the stage as possible. I feel it is my duty to get Morrissey a blue rose at all of these shows. I got on stage at Radio City and I feel I can do it again, but this time with rose in hand. Wish me luck." With President Kyle, Kyle's dad and Myself all going to Long Island and Brooklyn too, there is a REAL chance that roses WILL reach Moz. BLUE ROSE is up and running, we just have to keep it growing.
A TATTOO OF THE MOZZIAH AND A BLUE ROSE - WORD IS SPREADING
Today, Morrissey has appeared on TV in New Zealand, giving a twenty minute interview, and then singing 'I'm Throwing My Arms Around Paris'. There is also a bonus online performance of 'You Have Killed Me', which has Morrissey finishing the song with his right hand holding his heart in the masonic pose from the blog, but as usual, it's just a coincidence!
The interview itself was a really wasted opportunity. Once again the interviewer, in this case Ali Ikram, spent half of the interview seeking Morrissey's view on the British Royal Family. It is hardly surprising that Moz continues to remain so mysterious, when NO interviewer EVER asks him any sort of taxing or interesting questions. We all KNOW that Morrissey doesn't like the royals, so why not ask him something else, ANYTHING except his view on the bloody royals! Ikram showed his complete lack of research, when he mentioned seeing a clip of Moz singing 'I Know It's Over' at a concert in Spain earlier this year. Spain is one of the few countries that Morrissey HASN'T actually played in, in 2012. I expect the interviewer was referring to the Vina del Mar Festival in Chile.
MORRISSEY + POORLY FINGER IN CHILE FEBRUARY 2012
Despite the poor questioning, Moz did manage to throw a couple of interesting quotes into the interview. When told by Ikram that he couldn't be placed in a box, Morrissey replied, "It's nice if you can make people think more deeply than usual. They might dislike you, they might like you a hell of a lot, but at least you're not part of the rabble." Was this a reference to MorrisseysWorld?
My favourite quote was: "When I first began to sing, there didn't seem to be anybody like me in the history of music." Now ain't THAT the truth!
On retirement: "It isn't a question of age, it's how you present yourself."
"It's as potent as it ever was, otherwise I wouldn't bother, and I've often been encouraged not to bother, but who cares about that." A reference to the constant snipes on Solow?
On reformations: "You can lose the initial thread and the initial reason, this is why I frown on reformations. Unless reformations have what was there in the beginning, which is really impossible, then it's pointless."
Morrissey finished the interview by saying: "Well, I've never been confused for anybody else." The interviewer replied, "Nor will you ever be", at which point Morrissey smiled to himself and said:
"Well, you never know."
ALI IKRAM (LEFT) - POOR RESEARCH, DULL QUESTIONS AND SILLY FACIAL HAIR
Over the past couple of days, I have started to work my way through all of this year's Twitterdilly Top 10s, as I compile the Top 100, which @WalkerRat will broadcast on New Years Day. As I have been going through the archives of my blog, I keep stumbling across so many interesting things that have happened throughout the year. One of my interesting discoveries, is the "Some are born for happiness" quote, made by Morrissey during the pause in Speedway a couple of times, earlier in the year. WHERE does this quote come from? Another unexplained mystery is the stage backdrop from the last concerts in America. Was it Gina Lollobrigida, and who was the man?
GINA LOLLOBRIGIDA - A BACKDROP?
I have still not managed to purchase a promo copy of Morrissey's 'Glamorous Glue' single, but another interesting record turned up on ebay this week, a white label copy of 'November The Second', which is a remix of 'November Spawned A Monster.' According to the Record Collector rare records guide, there is only one known copy of this record, and it's value is £2000. I guess that this auction proves there is more than one copy, but WHO knows? Actually, somebody who MIGHT know is Morrissey, so instead of asking him about the BLOODY royals, why not ask him about his promos, which would be FAR more interesting! I'd like to know if HE kept a copy of 'November Second' after insisting they all be destroyed.
NOVEMBER THE SECOND WHITE LABEL PROMO - SOLD THIS WEEK ON EBAY FOR £461.09, BUT DOES MORRISSEY OWN ONE?
That is all for today. Russell Brand is now heading for New Zealand from Australia, so will he meet up with Morrissey, will he attend Friday's concert, and will we see his return to the MorrisseysWorld story? WAS Brand the mysterious '@BucktoothedBoy' and '@JodyRoad'? Roll on Friday.
