Day 468 - I Wear Black on the Outside

Yesterday was my birthday, but when you reach this stage of your life, there isn't a lot to get excited about. I suppose I should be grateful, as in September it didn't look like I would be seeing another birthday, but the truth is, I never got a rush of euphoria at cheating an early death, and life plods on as though nothing ever happened. Perhaps I should make an effort to really make something of my life, but like most of the other 7 billion people who currently populate this unhappy planet, I continue to aimlessly plod toward death, with no direction, no drive, and no ambition.

I woke up yesterday to discover Part 1 of a new MorrisseysWorld parody piece, entitled 'The End', but I just wasn't in the mood to get excited. My enthusiasm for MorrisseysWorld had been dampened the day before, when Rosy Mires had left a comment on my blog, attacking me for the way I wrote about Kevin Marinan. Rosy accused me of being divisive, barmy, uncivil, abusive, a gang leader and primitive. I shouldn't have let it bother me, but it did. Despite Morrissey leaving a comment saying, "Stop imagining things Rosy", I didn't like the fact that I was making people feel that way.

I spent about two hours yesterday writing a Christmas parody piece, but my heart just wasn't in it, and I ended up deleting the whole thing. I came away from the internet, and enjoyed the company of my family, as we went on a long dog walk, and then played board games.

I couldn't resist peeking into the Twitterdilly Arms last night, and I found that Our Mozzer had returned, but even his presence couldn't shake my depressive mood. His tweets seemed to suggest that the MW phenomenon is coming to a conclusion, and if I'm honest, I actually feel ready for it to end. If it IS the end, I know that when I snap out of my maudlin mood, I will miss it like mad, but the way I feel right now, well.....


So, today is Christmas day. The MW twitter account has once again disappeared, and we wait for Part 2 of 'The End', which may, or may not, be THE END. As for me, I shall do my best to put a smile on my face, and let the outside world think that all is well in Ratsville. The one thing that I AM still enthusiastic about, is BLUE ROSE and New York, but if my life doesn't find some direction soon, then this black cloud might be hanging above me for quite a while.

Happy bloody Christmas.

  1. Good morning my favourite rodent. You have to wonder where it is all going when the latest parody classic has just 19 comments. Oh well, Our Mozzer's return to Twitsville was very welcome. When I told him I was in Italy he said "I miss you when you're not here, God bless you".

    Please don't be too down-hearted today, enjoy your family. Morrissey is still alive and giving MUKIBs to anybody who needs them and Our Mozzer will be around as and when he feels the need.

    Happy Christmas to Mrs. Whiskers and to the little whiskery rodents in the nest.

  3. I meant to say: I don't know why those who once inhabited our glorious planet on MorrisseysWorld have to become negative and critical the moment they leave. It's a peculiar phenomenon Rat and I shouldn't let it get you down.

    Apologies about the deleted message; the lesson is not to drink gin on Christmas morning.

    3. Dear Rosy, you say that you don't believe Morrissey is behind MorrisseysWorld and yet you keep sucking up to Our Mozzer, 'just in case'. The comments that you have left on this latest posting are laughable, you have called TRB divisive, barmy, uncivil, abusive and primitive and you have done it ANONYMOUSLY, which makes you a troll. Your name is not Rosy Mire and unlike Peter and Kevin, you have never offered up your real name, so don't try and dress it up, you ARE a troll. You also say that if you ran a Morrissey site, you would delete criticism and yet all you ever do on here is criticise. I cannot believe TRB allows you to leave comment, your venomous attitude towards a man who has done nothing but write about his excitement in finding MorrisseysWorld amounts to bullying. My advise to you Rosy Troll, is to STAY AWAY.

    5. Rosy, you believe Uncle Skinny to be a decent and kind man, whilst at the same time you don't believe Morrissey to be involved in any way with MorrisseysWorld. This is definitely not the right place for you, So-Low is. Your decision to stay away is the first sensible thing you have written here. I hope you stick to your decision.
      Goodbye.

    6. Am I losing the plot here? An anonymous poster accuses Rosy of being a troll because she doesn't give her real name and is therefore Anonymous. That's a parody of some kind. Not a good kind though.

    7. I think you'll find it was irony.

  4. I am, however, deeply disillusioned with the lack of fawning praise for the latest slice of parody genius. It's just not on, quite frankly. I don't even know why I bother at times-

    1. To have invented such a wonderful term as a MUKIB is achievement in itself. Please dish out as many MUKIBs as possible in 2013, there are so many deserving targets. perhaps Gaynor has had enough punishment for now?

    2. Oh please continue, your efforts are always entertaining and worthwhile!

  5. And now... back to monitor the so-low forum... back to observing 'forum enforcer' Uncle Skinny (Rosy and StillICling's wonderful friend) bullying anybody who says anything semi-interesting.

  7. I'm glad to hear that you had a nice time with your family on your birthday Rat. May many more come.

    Sorry if my words also contributed to your distress. I could try and explain why I HAD to answer, but I don't want to start another discussion. Your blog, your rules. My decision to come here or not.

    Merry Christmas to you and your family Rat!

  8. I know how you feel Ratty... The thing with MW is that it can get very intense and I also got fed up with the arguing and bickering a while ago. I needed to stay away then and even the chat room couldn't entice me. Sometimes you just have to check out for a while and concentrate on the real world but you know you just can't leave forever! Have a good Christmas with your family!

  9. Dear Mr fluffy Rodent, dear Our Mozzer, I am one of probably many that have only been reading your blogs and appreciate the effort that you have put into it, but not leaving any comments. I have not been in the mood for much talking recently, not even in the real word. Nothing to do with your blogs.
    I wish you a happy Christmas, may life spare you any kind of MUKIBs.
    And a *warm hug* and wishes for a very happy Christmas to the Twitterdillians, many thanks for the kind comments left on the blog by EARS, Lizzy, Manc and Regi!

  10. I was not going to comment about this, but my spirits were also dampened yesterday. I guess that by talking in your blog about Uncle Skinny or Walter Ego you could guarantee that Rosy will come bowling in fists flying, though quite how two middle-aged men feel about hiding behind Rosy’s skirts is another matter. And I would defend her right to comment.
    But my immediate thoughts on her comments about you were pot/kettle. I remember the ganging up on Theo C Cupier to unmask his identity (if attention had been paid to the pics he posted it was obvious who he was), accusing other tweeters of being Rats (just because they are not ‘real’ enough?), and as to BARMY theories Duncan Barkes and all those rice cakes, and fishing around Simon Blackmore springs to mind. Now Waterstones? Behave indeed!!
    I am truly sorry that this has led to the postponement of your Christmas parody piece. Chin up rats – both of them and ignore the knockers.

  11. I'd just like to say 'ditto' to EARS' comment. I know it's hard, but please try not to let it get to you, Rats. I hope you and the Whiskers family have a very merry Christmas today. We don't want to see this blog or MW end.

  15. Ah, you've quoted one of my favourite Smiths songs. Unlovable is so underrated, but it means so much to me.

    Excuse me if I go off on a bit of an off-topic lyric clue hunt for completeness. I dare not post in the Low place.

    It's odd that neither self-appointed Moz detectives, Messrs Rogan and Goddard, have never noted in their volumes that "I wear black on the outside, because black is how I feel on the inside" and "if I seem a little stange, well that's because I am" are sourced from a Jeam Dean penned letter. I once had a James Dean biography that featured a picture of the letter and was reading it and found these familiar lines. Or maybe I dreamed it?

    They have also missed that my real-world namesake, Glenn, in Death At One's Elbow, is probably inspired from a Dean letter to his girlfriend, Barbara Glenn, where he says "I want to die". See it here: http://www.lettersofnote.com/2010/08/wow-am-i-fucked-up.html Note that James Dean also calls her Honey, which echoes in Honey You Know Where To Find Me.

    Anyway, a belated merry xmas to one and all.
