My blog writing usually takes me about five hours a day, but as I have committed to countdown the Twitterdilly Arms Top 10 of 2012 at midday in the said Twit Arms, I only have two and a half hours to write everything that I plan to write, and that includes ALL the unexpected interruptions that also come my way on a daily basis. Right, let me get on with things, although as yesterdays blog received just 88 hits (and I read it ten times), I really don't know why I bother. Actually, that isn't true, I DO know why I bother, because I am documenting one of the most ingenious pieces of art in modern history.
THE ORIGINAL MORRISSEYSWORLD HEADING
I last reported on Our Mozzer's twitter highlights on my blog entry of December 30th, when I wrote how 'NotMorrissey' aka Our Mozzer aka @MorrisseysWorld had tweeted on December 28th, "Now that I've removed the mindless 'celebs' from my timeline, I lack targets for my wit." The following day I posted a whole list of interview questions for Our Mozzer, but it looks like they have been ignored.
Without the 'celebs' to pick on, 'NotMorrissey' has spent the past five days interacting more than ever with members of the BlueRoseSociety. As I write this, 'NotMorrissey' is following 80 people on his twitter account, and his own follower numbers stand at 7,927. Follower numbers had recently climbed back up to over 8,000, but a combination of 'NotMorrissey'; no longer picking on celebs, frightening people with talk of EVIL, and ideal chit chat with the 'Deluded Dozen', has driven away the more casual observers. I should point out that the 'Deluded Dozen' actually amount to far more than just twelve people, but the 'Deluded Dozen' has a certain ring about it. In the fullness of history, I have NO doubt that MANY people will claim to have been among the 'Deluded Dozen', in much the same way that EVERYBODY claims to have been at the Sex Pistols first concert in Manchester, at the Lesser Free Trade Hall in June 1976. As far as I'm concerned, we are ALL the 'Deluded Dozen.'
THE ORIGINAL DELUDED DOZEN - THEY WERE GIVEN POWER AND TOLD TO CAST OUT UNCLEAN SPIRITS, WE HAVE HAD TO BUY OUR OWN ROSES (THAT'S RECESSION FOR YOU) AND TOLD TO CAST OUT SOLOW
MORRISSEY AT THE SEX PISTOLS FIRST CONCERT IN MANCHESTER - CAN YOU SPOT HIM?
'NOTMORRISSEY'S' TWITTERDILLY HIGHLIGHTS DEC 29TH 2012:
"Like Rimbaud's Ophelia, great visions strangled your words. An axe was held tightly in cold fingers. It struck your soft neck. This flimsy life is but a flickering flame in the rain. A paving stone tripped me up. I cried." Are these words perhaps an extract from 'NotMorrissey's' novel?
"I wonder what historians will write about the BlueRoseSociety"
(In reply to my tweet saying that very few comments had been left on my latest blog entry) "@TheRatsBack I had no comments for 18 months - except the fake ones of course!" I then replied, "@MorrisseysWorld My early bloggings have received no comments. They will be read one day, as everybody looks to unravel your story." 'NotMorrissey' retweeted my tweet, now WHY would a 'fake' Morrissey do THAT? Hmm.
"I've lightened up in recent months. Has anyone noticed I'm less Morrisseyesque? (Because HE would NEVER do that!)"
LIGHTEN UP 'NOTMORRISSEY'
DEC 29TH HIGHLIGHTS CONTINUED:
"I'll return to bleak rhymeless poetry and morbidly witty insights after the new year."
"What if I post a picture of my hairy back and thereby prove I'm just a chap in a bedsit with too much time on his hands?"
NOTMORRISSEY AKA OUR MOZZER ?
DEC 29TH HIGHLIGHTS CNTD:
"The Smiths only happened because I walked home in the rain once too often." Loughton Lil responded, "And where does the blame lie for a solo career? A chance encounter with Boz in a back street record shop? A migraine?" 'NotMorrissey' replied, "The gel on my quiff repelled the raindrops and left me dry. Hence the solo career."
"The older I get, the less hope remains, and the more important my only surviving hope becomes: my next album."
"My next album - thanks to ventilators, IV medications and round-the-clock nursing care - IS coming to a record store near you soon."
"Oh, am I droning on? Am I boring you all? Why can't I just tweet about what I've eaten and how much I love my fans?"
JUSTIN BIEBER - LIFE IS FAR SIMPLER IN HIS WORLD
DEC 30TH 2012 HIGHLIGHTS :
"Suffering makes one, success strengthens one and fame breaks one."
(In response to '@sorcha69' tweeting, "There is nobody that can do what he (Russell Brand) can nor anybody as quick witted or honest in his field. He is surpassable.") "Well Russell is certainly the world's leading expert at repeating, in a mad voice, what the other person just said."
MORRISSEY WITH THE WORLD'S LEADING EXPERT IN MAD VOICED REPEATING
DEC 30TH HIGHLIGHTS CNTD:
"Being single at 53 doesn't make one a bespectacled monster of repressed sexuality - I personally wear contacts!" (I LOVE this quote.)
"Sometimes I think there's no point following anybody else but myself on Twitter."
"@Bravevampire I hope you have a BlueRoseSociety t-shirt in XL for the seminal artist-"
(In reply to my tweet informing '@MorrisseysWorld' that the Solowers are accusing him of being Marcus 'The Greek' Markou aka '@PapaSonsFilm') "I've been everybody, from Joyce to Broken to TheRatsBack to Tseng (!) to Julia Riley and now I'm @PapaSonsFilm." Marcus 'The Greek' Markou rather amusingly replied, "Really... For MW the light at the end of the tunnel is a train heading his way... For me, it's a light!"
THERE IS A LIGHT THAT NEVER GOES OUT, BUT IS THAT LIGHT OPTIMISM OR DEATH?
DEC 30TH HIGHLIGHTS CONTINUED:
"Singing teaches us who we are; speaking teaches us who we are not; rapping teaches us b*gger all."
"Those dewy October sunsets in Bloomsbury; scrawling words on the bench in marker pen; the strangest smile like candyfloss laced with poison." The novel again?
DEC 31ST 2012 HIGHLIGHTS:
"I Have Forgiven Jesus." A possibility of being added to the setlist?
"I wonder" Could 'Well I Wonder ALSO be another song on the new setlist, or is it a reference to 'I Have Forgiven Jesus' being added?
IS 'JESUS' COMING TO NEW YORK, OR 'JUST' THE MOZZIAH?
(In response to '@edronmonds' comment that he didn't like the MW blog article about EVIL) "The Blog's purpose is not to entertain and cater to. It is art; either you join us on the journey, or you do not."
I particularly like this tweet because once again it is MORRISSEY and not NotMorrissey!
"Another stifled New Year's Eve - with my hands on my hips, I flop on my swivel chair, with a gut full of gin, and a BlueRoseSociety Pin."
OUR MOZZER ON NEW YEAR'S EVE, OR MANCLAD COUNTING THE NUMBER OF ROSES HE FAILED TO GIVE IN 2012?
NEW YEAR'S EVE HIGHLIGHTS CONTINUED:
(In response to President Kyle (@MozKidKyle) posting his video of 'Everyday Is Like Sunday') '@MozKidKyle It would be funny if the real Morrissey recognises you from the Youtube video in New York, Kyle."
"I'm wishing you all a Mozerable New Year. I'll certainly be bringing it in in Mozerable style, alone in one's chilly bedsit. NoTv."
"My solo career is what happens when, instead of jumping the hurdles, you walk slowly around every single one."
11.55 am GMT: I have run out of time! I shall now go and present the Twitterdilly Arms Top 10 2012 to the masses in the Twit Arms, and then I shall leave the house. I have a short flight to catch, and then a busy afternoon. I shall write tomorrow with 'NotMorrissey's' twitter highlights of the first two days of this year, and hopefully I will find the time to tell WHY I am called TheRatsBack, and also mention the book I am currently gripped by. It is an autobiography of a VERY funny man.
