Day 670 - The Penne is Mightier Than the Chord

Forgive me Father, for I have binned!

Following my last blog entry of July 10th, 'Blue Rose' himself left the following comment:

It would require a VERY unambiguous sign to bring me back, and unfortunately The True Artiste doesn't DO unambiguous.

Our Mozzer

This was the first time that Morrissey/Our Mozzer/The Mozziah/Blue Rose had left a comment on my blog for many months, and it proved what many of us had hoped and suspected, that Mozzer was still visiting these pages, and was still maintaining an interest in The Blue Rose Society.

Our Mozzer's comment immediately got me wondering if we were about to get 'a sign', albeit not an 'unambiguous' one, and WE DID, but I binned it by mistake! Let me explain. Apart from the regular members of the 'Deluded Dozen' who often leave comments on my blog, I also get left an awful lot of spam comments, plus a number of nasty comments from the Solowers, so when I can be bothered, I trawl through and delete them. I was on one such trawl the other day, when I deleted a comment left by somebody calling themselves 'Ambiguous', which mentioned "The whorin' father." I had no idea what this comment was about, and presumed it was a solower, so I deleted it. Later that day, Morrissey issued a statement on TTY regarding his food poisoning incident, and he posted a photo of.... well, see for yourself:

See the luck I've had

Morrissey Live
I can't give words to the sorrow I feel at the loss of perfect Peru. Oh, black cloud. After such a victorious and uplifting welcome of Lima love, the contaminated jinx had its way via a simple restaurant meal of penne pasta and tomato. Three hours later, both I, and security Liam have collapsed with a deadly and delirious bedridden disease. Five days of round-the-clock medical supervision just barely controls the corrosively toxic food poisoning. I know my luck too well. Sorrow replaces joy, and in every dream home a heartache. It could only be me.
I have returned to Los Angeles and to the expert supervision of my doctor Jeremy Fine, who assures me that I shall be fine (although not in the gossamer, powdery sense) for our upcoming shows in Argentina and Brazil. I have absolutely no idea where my beloved Chile has gone. In the heat of cancellations and postponements, the humiliation and mortification I feel on a personal level is too mammoth to be measured. If my spirits climb down any lower I could never again find the dignity to stand upright. We all live at the mercy of biological chance, and although I am not one to take refuge in clich├ęs, I repeat my very servile apologies to any and all who back-packed their way to Peru. Alas, the dark shadow made the same journey.
Each year of life brings us nearer to our decline, but I will continue to seek a listener until I'm dead in a ditch.

So, it would appear that I deleted an 'ambiguous' sign. Now we must wait for an 'unambiguous' one, and the wait might not have to be too long, because the good news is, the South American tour is BACK ON, starting in Buenos Aires on July 28th.

*Please note that today's very witty blog title comes courtesy of girlwithout.


  1. Hope all Moz fans in America stay safe and i would avoid the big cities come nightfall, just to be on the safe side . As for Moz, it is fantastic news that he is picking up the baton again, stay safe, i reckon century city will be fine tho

    1. Oh and before anyone asks i do not know where he is nor do i want to know he himself reported on his doctor

  2. OOPS!!

    I loved the statement. Despite everything Morrissey's sense of humour shone through.

    Bring on 28th July & may the rest of the tour be jinx free.

    Cracking play on words girlwithout!

  3. You should always have your Blogger comments go through to email as well as have a presence in Blogger, that way you'll always have a back-up.

    Actually, I make zines from my season creep spam, like the nonsense below. But who knows, this example from 21 June 2013 could be a foretelling of the food poison of a true pop artiste:

    In addition, tub . restaurant to eat, walk longer, delay-time. Procuring further fall down Not don't want to have to get, but rather can't see gain opportunity. In addition, small restaurant to eat, walk longer, delay-time. The two become as close as sisters, corroborating each other around treatment. do=basic Have a look at my homepage: tory burch reva on 20613 #photomontage Frame singers

  4. The ambiguous comment, for those who missed it.

    "Still whorin' Father?"

  5. Just another 'coincidence!' I love the photo and the statement, as I mentioned previously. Best wishes to Morrissey that he'll be feeling fine (under the supervision of Dr. Fine) well before the 28th.

  6. hello Rat! I' m sure our Mozzer and the Mozzer feeling better both this days thanks to you and to girlwithout for the nice words joke! p.s. penne means pens in italian because this kind of pasta looks like a pen!


  7. I can't believe that I missed the fact that Our Moz was dressed as a priest
    in the most recent photo on TTY. Hence the quote on this blog.

    I am always looking for signs and managed to miss this one !!

    However I know that I can always rely on my Mozfriends to fill
    in the gaps and take up the slack.

    It seems that Moz is feeling better as his humour is intact.
    I wish him all the best for a swift return to wellness and for
    the tour to resume.
    It makes me feel warm and fuzzy to know that he still thinks of us
    and stays in touch.

    1. Don't worry, Lizzy, I remember seeing the comment but didn't make the connection! Doh! Maybe we are out of practice...

  8. It's such a special treat to read your blog and also to know that our Mozzer still thinks of us!!

  9. you delete anything that does not appeal to your ego. You are a liar as well.Anything to acknowledge yourself and deny the truth of others.

  10. Rose is a rose is a rose is a rose


    1. Isle of hope, isle of tears,
      Isle of freedom, isle of fears,
      But it's not the isle you left behind.
      That isle of hunger, isle of pain,
      Isle you'll never see again
      But the isle of home is always on your mind.
      The isle of home is always on your mind.

    2. There's a poet called Annie Moore? Who'd have thunk it?

      There's no need to be kind to her.

    3. And the will to see you smile and belong has now gone.

      All together now...

    4. and the will to smell your roses made of shit was gone before the garden party began

  11. pop pop popped back on to say two things 1)i'm far too innocent to comment on the gossamer, powdery sense, 2) I really miss the MW blog

    1. This comment has been removed by the author.

  12. Im disgusted by that Solow using me as a source, u must be blocked. No more...I'm glad Mozzer said that. So u must be feeling better...I'm glad. Take good care of Our Mozzer Doc!

  13. You idiots need to stop visiting the true, best site for Morrissey information--Solo.

    Each of you knows that he or she visits it regularly; do us all of favor and stay away and keep you heads firmly planted in the sand as you blindly follow anything and everything that the has been, Morrissey, has said or done.

    1. Aaw, thanks for the heads up

    2. Hey anon from solo can you tell me what you thought when Morrissey started picking blue roses out of the crowd i mean you all said we were crazy and after a while the penny must have dropped what was your reaction be honest now

  14. Glad that you are keeping the blog going and was especially happy to see Our Mozzer's post, although I'm still trying to determine if his mention of unambiguous was given ambiguously. Best wishes to all.

  15. Not a believer in the BR hoax, but must say the title of the article is near the top of the parody work you've done. Quite brilliant, keep up the work. It's entertaining for sure.

  16. MorrisseysWorld is back!

    1. If this is you, send a sign, I love the paper chase

  18. True To You update
    I am informed today that the projected tour of South America is snuffed out, thus euthanized - due, I'm reliably advised, to lack of funding. It's quite easy to sell tickets, yet impossible to transport band and crew from F to G.
    In a year when far too many disappointments have been buried this really is the last of many final straws, and I am not alone in feeling this. The future is suddenly absent, and my apologies are now so frequent as to be somewhat ridiculous, and it is I who apologize because no one else would bother. It is agonizing to be responsible for imparting such news - especially when it springs upon me unexpectedly and inexplicably. But the collapse of South America rings the curtain down with a colossal thud, and the major problems remain as insoluble now as they were in 2009. The obvious conclusion stares back at me from the mirror, and the wheels are finally off the covered wagon. Cancellations and illness have sucked the life out of all of us, and the only sensible solution seems to be the art of doing nothing.
    As always I ask your pardon, and I offer pangs of overwhelming love and gratitude to the band and the crew, whose loyalty stretched above and beyond.

    I shall see you in my dreams,
    19 July 2013, Los Angeles

    1. What a lovely post.

  20. Our mozzer, our noiseless patient spider, at least we have his movie.

  21. So, instead of touring he can go back to the hideous blog. I guess since his recent lyrical output has been so bad, what else is there.

  22. All that matters is that MorrisseysWorld is back!

  23. Princess Rhode21 July 2013 at 13:04

    Morrissey had his tour cancelled. He's told there's not enough money to bank-roll it. He's beyond devastated. Promoters are understandably twitchy (after Peru) about giving him more expenses up front I guess. He's uninsurable so they can only take on so much risk. Either way he wanted to sing, and he can't and he's heart-broken.

    And you think all that matters is a parody blog?

    Doesn't Morrissey matter?

    1. Grow up dear. All Morrissey has to do is shoulder the risk himself and he could play anywhere any time. He is just unwilling ever to accept personal responsibility. So now he says, "Oh I'm uninsurable, there is no money" rather than paying himself and taking the risk himself. Similarly he says "I can't release an album" because the majors are now unwilling to invest in him, rather than trying to solve the problem and take responsibility. It's all part of his extreme narcissism and fatalism.

      Morrissey is a man worth upwards of 20 million with loads of property and income. He is adored by millions. He has lived a wonderful life. He was blessed with reasonable good looks, good health, talent and success.

      Do I feel sorry for Morrissey? No.

      I love Morrissey, but poor-pity-Morrissey fans such as yourself make me feel rather queasy.

      I feel sorry for people dying of poverty, people in bedsits, his fans who spent money and may not get it back (as usual). Do I feel sorry for the millionaire businessman who is 'too sick to perform' yet again? No.

      He's been throwing sickies for years, often over minor viral illnesses, or nothing at all. What makes recent events different? Only that he SAYS he has been VERY sick.

      A touch of diarrhoea is probably what he had, as many people have sometimes. Tomato and penne is hardly likely to cause a sinister food poisoning bug!

      His double pneumonia? We only have his word. Barrett's Oesophagus is nothing much. Millions have it - they don't pen self-pitying letters to thousands bemoaning their fate. They get it looked at and keep an eye on it.

      Has he had cancer? No

      Has he got motor neurone disease? No

      He's probably had a very minor chest infection, a complication of chronic acid reflux, a minor ulcer bleed, now healed, and apparently a touch of diarrhoea.

      He is not dying - he's just getting old, and his health is better than many men in their 50s.

      Now get a grip, and stop being pathetic.

    2. Princess Rhode22 July 2013 at 12:12

      Grip is got.
      Revised order of what matters most.
      1. People who have cancer, motor neuron disease, starving millions, those subjected to daily violence of war or oppressive regimes etc etc etc
      2. People in bedsits (which, by the way, includes our mystery blogger), fans who spent money and never got it back (only if they're poor tho).
      3. Iconic artiste, blessed with *VERY good looks, good health (for his age), talent and success, who has hit a real low patch emotionally and physically, and feels as though his career may be over.

    3. How ridiculous!
      Iconic artiste at number 2.
      People in bedsits at number 3.

    4. hahaha Doctor Broken up there feeling sorry for people in bedsits. "The Doc" is right though. Moz could play anytime he wanted to if he funded it.

  24. Concert in LA is called for to lift his spirits, he could sell out in within minutes without notice.

  25. Concert in LA is called for to lift his spirits, he could sell out in minutes without notice,

    1. I hope he'll reconsider doing it...

  26. and good to see Our Mozzer is doing well...

  27. Climmy Worseapple Question24 July 2013 at 13:13

    Sometimes, when I cry, I sit with a mirror before me and imagine that I am my own nonexistent disillusioned long-term partner, looking with scorn at my puffy, leaking face - immune to the rotting diseases of affection and empathy for "myself" thanks to a tough course of painful injections and some hard-earned antibodies. Your recent release of 'Last of the Famous International Playboys', did not make it into the Top 100 in the UK, did this disappoint you?

    1. Morrissey1959 response24 July 2013 at 13:14

      Now that I'm about as relevant as a bar of soap at a heavy metal gathering, it came as little surprise that my single failed to chart. The noise generation want immediate, unimaginative melody, words attuned to the repulsive cannabis-fuelled orgy that passes for pop culture these days, and electronic sounds. I gave them... well, I gave them exactly that - and it still failed!
      Similarly my mystique could never be compared to that of Garbo. I would compare myself to Julie Goodyear, or, at a push, Larry Grayson.

  28. Lizzycatmoz Question24 July 2013 at 13:15

    My question for Morrissey AKA Our Mozzer is, and I consider this to be 'personal' however not ' personal life.' Having been extremely ill and on IV drips for 5 weeks, I'm sure the experience changed you, but what I'd really like to know, but am afraid to ask, so am relying on that b**tard Rat to completely change and 'sex up' my question a bit, is: You have used lots of homoerotic imagery in your art over the years, and yet I have found you quite flirty, do you bat for both sides?

    1. Morrissey1959 response24 July 2013 at 13:16

      I don't bat at all. And on the odd occasion I've tried, the balls always seem to catch me off-guard.

  29. MozzeriansATW Question24 July 2013 at 13:18

    can u answer my question M1959 please?
    I don't know if u answered it yet, but my question was will you ever let everyone know that you do know about the BlueRosESociety? Will you let it be known?

    1. Morrissey1959 response24 July 2013 at 13:18

      Mozzerians, one day the world will hear who is behind MorrisseysWorld

    2. I firmly believe this experience will go down as one of the most bizarre and unprecedented in history.
      For years I was available.
      And only a handful noticed.

  30. Lizzycatmoz Question24 July 2013 at 13:24

    It must be a unique experience that someone as famous and iconic as you, allows us to interact with you. I still can't believe that it happens even after 2 years.

    1. Morrissey1959 response24 July 2013 at 13:26

      Well I am not Morrissey
      But yes, I take your point
      I wonder how history will judge this experiment
      insanity? Genius? The desperation of an artist in decline? A intimate and beautiful digression?
      Once the public at large know this site will vanish only a small number will have seen everything, and will understand

    2. You say experiment i say a jolly good laugh, i have enjoyed watching TRM gaze at the odd blue rose in the mosh pit.. yes we are all deluded but that makes it so much better.. not one person from solo has been able to say why TRM only held out his hand for the blue roses

  31. Morrissey1959: Menippus, did you enjoy either of the blog articles?
    Menippus: 2024 more
    Morrissey1959: That sounds like a 'No'
    Menippus: I'm wondering which government department I'll be running, that's all. Don't I deserve a position?
    Morrissey1959: You are one of the few MWers whom I cannot see occupying a key position in any bureaucracy
    Heathercat: Hmm, should I take that as an insult?
    Menippus: Well, yeah, I obviously lack the necessary organisational skills, but I can't imagine I'll get to 2024 still practising pointless obscurantism on Twitter. The world needs me in more urgent places.
    Heathercat : I can't imagine occupying a position in a bureaucracy

    LOL *too funny*
