Day 540 - What Difference D'00'es It Make?

0830 UK TIME (1230 SEATTLE TIME) - I have a day off work today, so I have decided to write a 'LIVE' blog throughout the day, reporting on my findings of last night's Morrissey concert in Seattle as I piece together information that I discover from all over the internet. As I write this, I am VERY excited that there may have been a HUGE sign in Seattle last night, but I think it would be too good to be true, let me explain. Somebody with the twitter name '@KarenxMoz'  tweeted an hour ago saying, "Touch me, squeeze me, Hold me too tightly, And when you look at me you actually see me." 'KarenxMoz' also tweeted this picture:

MORRISSEY IN SEATTLE LAST NIGHT

The words 'KarenxMoz' has tweeted are from the song 'All The Lazy Dykes', which hasn't been sung live for AGES, but it is the song that I mentioned in my recent interview with Morrissey. It would be an unbelievable coincidence if Morrissey had sung 'Dykes' lat night, but I'm now thinking that 'KarenxMoz' has just added those words to go with her picture. She has also tweeted, "Sing your life" with a picture of Moz singing last night. My excitement is dwindling. No hope, no harm, just another false alarm.


MORRISSEY SINGING HIS LIFE IN SEATTLE

Another tweet that has got me excited this morning, which is also probably ANOTHER false alarm, is from '@BrokenReturns'. It was posted at 0735, which would have been 2335 in Seattle. It reads, "Moz to play England and LA - AGAIN? What Difference D'00'es it Make?" This has got me w'00'ndering if Moz sang 'What Difference Does It Make' during the pause in Speedway last night. What is the relevance of that I hear you cry, well, in my first interview with Moz back in May 2012, I asked him if he would ever perform it again and he gave a long and witty reply, which ended with him saying, "I'd feel too ashamed. I might sing it during the pause in 'Speedway'." I have been waiting ever since, but to NO avail. As I say, I'm sure my excitement will soon be crushed, but as I await a set list or any news from Seattle, a twinge remains.

WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE SLEEVE


Broken's only other tweets of yesterday were to re-tweet my blog entry, and to post pictures of footballers! Incidentally, my blog received 810 hits yesterday, but only 167 were specific to yesterday's 'Well I W'OO'nder' entry. I am receiving loads and loads of spam hits and comments, so the 810 figure is NOT a reflection of the true readership, it is much less. It is hard to say with any accuracy as to how many people are still following the MorrisseysWorld phenomenon on a daily basis via my blog, but I really do think it is probably around 130, with probably 30 to 40 being 100% convinced that it is Morrissey behind it. So, after 3 years of MorrisseysWorld, only 30 to 40 people belong to the 'Deluded Dozen' club. Wow!

Just thirteen comments were left on my blog of yesterday, three of which were from non-believers, mainly leaving anonymous abuse, although one left comment to say, "It's not Moz BUT Moz is so OBVIOUSLY aware and approves." Well, if that WERE the case, WHO is the mysterious person making predictions such as 'Well I Wonder' being sung? It doesn't work for Moz to just be an 'approver'. Another commenter called 'wordsmiff' asked, why would Morrissey do this? I responded that he has done it to form the Blue Rose Society, just as Oscar Wilde formed his own Green Carnation Society. It really is a fantastic story, and we are SO lucky to be living it.

MORRISSEY REACHES FOR A BLUE ROSE IN HOLLYWOOD

I have previously said that MorrisseysWorld was like our 'Hotel California', but I was wrong, it's our 'Hand In Glove'. Right, I am now going to trawl through twitter to see if I can find any tweets relating to a set list. If I have no joy, I shall resort to visiting the SoLow place, it is the ONLY thing that it is still good for. Back later.



1000 UK TIME (0200 SEATTLE) - I decided to visit the SoLow place first, but there is NO set list, just the usual abuse. The first comment of the day on SoLow is quite interesting, it says, "Following on from Morrissey accepting the blue rose sing (sic) from the blue rose society, picking out MORE blue roses from the crowd and wearing shirts with roses on them, any more blue rose references? How come no one notices what it (sic) happening here?" The comment is anonymous, but OBVIOUSLY has come from one of the 'Deluded Dozen'. It didn't take long for 'UncleSkinny' to reply with the following, "Because not everyone is a gullible turd like you. Now shut up and let's talk about the music."

Another anonymous person has left a message for me, calling me, "the lamest troll of all time" and suggesting that I have "made a fake internet blog." *Yawn*

A user by the name of 'VivaGil' has agreed with 'UncleSkinny' that the Blue Rose Society are just trolls. There is NOTHING on SoLow about last night's concert in Seattle, NOTHING!


1030 UK TIME (0230 SEATTLE) - I am now trawling through twitter and have found some photos:

LET ME KISS YOU IN SEATTLE - PHOTO BY '@KATESEVENTY8'

1037 UK TIME (0237 SEATTLE) - The first Youtube footage has emerged, and although it is poor quality, it shows that the two songs were delivered with perfection. 'Joke' is just, well, its just! (See here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rWjL0uV6SEU)

1053 UK TIME (0253 SEATTLE) - HeatherCat has found a set list on the internet (http://www.setlist.fm/setlist/morrissey/2013/the-moore-theatre-seattle-wa-53db6f69.html) although it's accuracy is not known at this point. My excitement about 'All The Lazy Dykes' is now at an end, but still I cling to the slim possibility that 'What Difference' was sung during 'Speedway'.

1125 UK TIME (0325 SEATTLE) - All has gone quiet, so I have just sneaked another peak into the SoLow place and there is still NOTHING about the concert, but UNBELIEVABLY, 'UncleSkinny' has posted the following in response to somebody advising him that he was looking foolish:

Christ Pete, you're starting to look a right twat, learn when to keep your mouth shut, it's now very, very obvious Moz is involved with Blue Rose. Back down gracefully, you got this one wrong.
Made up shit, from a made-up shithead. You are acting like a mental patient being dragged backwards by men in white coats all the while screaming about your deluded fantasy world. For someone who hates this place so much, you sure need the courtesy extended here to give your baloney the oxygen of publicity. You've invented a world of nonsense, and dug in so deep, you can't back out, because oh, what a fool you'd look then, if that's at all possible over and above what a figure of riducule you've made such a good job of turning yourself into. Give it a rest already.

P.



I am speechless, Skinny has aimed his response at ME! He must imagine that anybody who posts about Blue Rose is me. I don't know what else to add! I think I will go and have a cup of tea. Back later.



1445 UK TIME (0645 SEATTLE) - I decided to take the dog out after my cup of tea, and I then had a spot of lunch. I have just returned to my laptop, and have searched; 1) Youtube, 2) Twitter, 3) SoLow and 4) All You Need Is Morrissey. There is NO new footage on Youtube, NOTHING new on Twitter and NOT A SINGLE relevant comment or sign of a set list on SoLow, which 'claims' to be the number 1 Morrissey fan site. Luckily, there is lots of photos and AYNIM, which I have to admit, is not a site I ever use, perhaps I should. I don't even know who runs it, but would guess that they aren't believers in MorrisseysWorld. The photos show that the band wore 'Ford Trucks' t-shirts and Morrissey was in trash nail varnish. There is a link to an article on 'BackBeatSeattle.Com', which shows the photos in full  (See here: http://backbeatseattle.com/2013/03/07/photos-morrissey-the-moore/). Good old AYNIM, poor old SoLow, it is well and truly DEAD!

  1. Good morning Rat! Just posted a comment on your previous post with the feeling that more "coincindences" will arrive with the news of Seattle's concert and, of course, here we are! Went on AYNIM and still no news about Seattle, but now quite possible to find something, went, my mistake, to the other site and just a little bit of usual rubbish and I swear not going more as I usaully do. Have a nice day Rat! All is going fine!

  2. Bravo Rat, I may not be Twitting as much but I'm still following your blog, still as deluded as ever.

    We did say,back in the day, that it was highly likely that no matter what signs were given, they would be ignored by most people. I'm not sure how much we really believed that but it is happening in front of our eyes.

    Thank goodness for the wonderful new BRS intake - they are playing a blinder.

  6. You are correct Rats, that any time someone posts in opposition on So-Low,
    Skinny imagines it is a member of BRS, which it clearly isn't all of the time.

    I think that the message you re-posted isn't from anyone
    connected to BRS.

  9. Glad to know I'm not the only one who had to look up the meaning of rick rolling, which I did a few days ago. As far as I'm aware, I'm not living under a rock, but somehow I had previously missed this. Anyway, I agree that the Playboys cover is absolutely hilarious - I've been laughing about it for days. Just further evidence of Mozzer's keen sense of humor, which we love so dearly.

  10. Having years of living in internet I had no idea what Rockrolling means, never even thought that such a thing exist. I honestly thought it was an English slang of something used in daily basis and has nothing to do with internet, so I went to look at the urbandictionary.com as usual whenever I found any unusual English word. Apparently, it's a famous internet meme, can be found in Wikipedia. My goodness...

  12. Yes, we may be hidden by "rags"
    but we have something they'll never have

    And if the people stare
    then, the people stare
    oh I really don't know
    and I really don't care

    So hand in glove I stake my claim

    Please be a man and back down gracefully
    Why can't you see what everyone else sees why can't you just accept that the BRS is very well known now.
    And more.people in the world want to know more about us and will.learn in time what.we see and know.


    GROW UP AND STOP WITH YOUR HATE YOU OBSESSIVE OLD FART

  16. I'm totally all for The Blue Rose Society as I've stated before. It's a wonderful society to be a part of because I can identify with the love that you all share for Morrissey and it is a pleasure to exchange conversation with such pleasant fans. My request to join the BRS is still pending on Twitter, though, so I may not be welcome...I don't know.

    Having said that, I would like to clear up the misconception that Oscar started The Green Carnation. As I understand it, Oscar didn't start any kind of society. He did delve into "signs" and whatnot - very much like MW in that regard. Oscar dyed Carnations green because, as he stated, "the flower is an art." But, The Society was started in a book by, at first, an anonymous author, who later revealed his true identity as Robert Hitchens. He based the two main "dandy" characters on the lives of Oscar and Bosie. The book was actually used against Oscar in his trial. Since, at first, it was anonymously published - many people thought Oscar was the author of the book, but he denied the accusations. That's when he said, "I invented that magnificent flower. But with the middle-class and mediocre book that usurps its strangely beautiful name I have, I need hardly say, nothing whatsoever to do. The flower is a work of art. The book is not.”

    I'm not saying he didn't use it as a sign for others to recognize his sexual preference...Maybe he did, but the Green Carnation "Society" was not his idea. Just the flower was his idea (perhaps meant for a very small group of people because of its very sensitive nature at the time...or because, as he said, it was meant for conversation...) Hitchens robbed Oscar of his Green Carnation to validate a point in his book - which, to this day, is used to associate Oscar with his homosexuality.

    Poor Oscar was truly a victim in every sense of the word.

    Again, this is not meant as a slight against The Blue Rose Society. I'm happy it exists. There should be something like this for those of us who have an undying, passionate love for Morrissey, and I think, now that he is definitely aware (thanks to Vulgar) that he probably is quite honored. That is, if he hasn't been behind the whole thing all this time.

  17. I am sorry I have being away for so long. Maybe it feels like such a long time because so much happened or maybe because I felt unwell for a while and could not really read much about all beautiful ‘wonders’ which were happening… Oh, so much HAS happened, hasn’t it?

    But once again I'd like to tell Vulgar that I truly admire her for delivering the Blue Rose Ring in such a beautiful way. As I see it, she showed her love and the love and respect of the Blue Rose Society to Morrissey just perfectly.

    As to the blog, as precious as ever, so thank you Rat.

    - Regi

    By the way, while feeling a little feverish and unwell I had some quite strange and deluded… dreams. There is not much to read yet and perhaps there will never be anything, but I felt like writing something and, after all, ‘what difference does it make? Oh, it makes none…’ so http://morrisseyandmydreamoflove.blogspot.de/

  18. I luv ya Rat! Thank u for pointing that out! I thought I was the only one thinking the same thing, u just had mentioned. I did peak abit at that one hateful (blah blah blah) site & noticed no one really talking much about the show or any videos or anything at all just really pathetic comments & rudeness. But really they got the BRS all in their mouths. But enough of that, Rick Astley I love! A confused little girl that I was when I was 10 lol
    I had said thanks Rat for posting the video by RA 'Never Gonna Give You Up''... So yea Bowie who?? Cheers to my beloved BSR & Our Mozzer I love you. FxxxSoLow

  21. Despite my rather late arrival I am loving the idea of 'live' blogging Rats.

    I did smile when I saw the Rick Astley pic on the cover. Morrissey has such a cracking sense of homour.

    Thanks again Rat for your commitment & giving us deluded ones the opportunity to express ourselves.
