It has been an action packed world of adventure in 'Morrissey Land' (his words from his book) over the past few days, and despite having to go to work on Thursday, I managed to avoid doing much actual work, and sunk into reading,'The Book'. I had nearly reached the half way point by 1.30am on Friday morning, when I realised I was struggling to take everything in, so I stopped reading and slept. In between reading, I also felt the need to check twitter, to see what was happening at the book signing in Sweden, where to my delight, I saw photos of Morrissey sat with a vase of red roses. Reports told how he even leant over to touch them!
I EAT THE SOIL, I TOUCH THE ROSE
On Friday, despite again having to go to work, and actually DO some work, I managed to carry on reading, dipping in and out throughout the day. I still couldn't find enough time to plough all the way through, and I eventually finished the book at tea time on Saturday, by which time my Morrissey 25 Live film had arrived in the post. It was a Moz fest! My wife and children collectively raised their eyes to the heavens at the sight of the sad 47 year old teenager snuggled up on the sofa with his Morrissey book and dvd.
Having finished 'The Book', and then having watched the dvd, I thought I should write a review for this blog, but before I could even contemplate what to say, events took over. I logged on to my blog to find that Morrissey himself had not only left a string of comments, but he'd written a parody article, 'Reviewer of the Reviews', which, in the absence of his MorrisseysWorld blog, he'd asked me to post on MY blog!!! I duly obliged... of course, whilst trying not to wet myself with excitement.
How had I managed to end up in this situation, where I am not only communicating with my hero, but am posting his writings on MY blog? What is more, I am part of a 'secret society', with just a dozen other deluded people, which includes Morrissey himself! Yes, I know, it's all SO unbelievable that even 'I' don't believe it, and I've lived with it for the past two years. F*CKING PINCH ME, MOTHER!

For anybody who missed Our Mozzer's HILARIOUS 'Reviewer of the Reviews' parody piece, please see my last blog entry, and indeed the entry before that, AND the entry before that! (He is a perfectionist, and kept making me change it.) The other comments left by Our Mozzer and his sidekick 'Broken', who for those of you reading my blog for the first time, is ALSO Morrissey under a different name... yes, yes, yes, I know you don't believe me, but I can't DO anything about that!... where was I? Oh yes, the other comments left by Our Mozzer and Broken (and a few other MW characters), ended up as a parody piece in themselves, so I have re-posted them as follows: (I MUST re-emphasize, that the 'character' called Broken is NOT a real person, he is as I say, a character, and one of his traits in this whole play, and yes, the whole MorrisseysWorld thing is just one big 'play', is that he dislikes Boz. It should also be noted that 'Boz' is a parody character of Boz Boorer, and is NOT the real Boz Boorer! Understand? No, I thought you wouldn't! Carry on....):
(Written in response to the piece about the REAL Boz Boorer on my blog of Weds - Day 763):
I immediately asked Moz why he chose to use the word 'unfortunately'. At this point, I took some notes, as follows:
Moz then continued on the subject of love:
'Unfortunately', my battery died at this time, so I have no idea what else was said, but EARS (Emotional Air Raid Survivor) was there, so perhaps she can leave comment.
If anybody is still reading this VERY long winded blog entry, I thank you. I've nearly caught up. Many more reviews have been written in the past few days about 'The Book', with one of the reviews comparing the section about Morrissey hurting his mother during birth with the parody book, 'I Partridge'. If ONLY they knew, it was actually a comparable to Morrissey's OWN parody piece on the MorrisseysWorld blog. The outside world has missed a treat!
The following VERY INTERESTING comment has this morning been left on my blog entry of yesterday:
I have watched the video and Bracewell does indeed l'OO'k as though he is trying to make his hanky look like a Blue Rose, and as 'Violet' has also commented yesterday, Bracewell's piece features a crying woman, just as Margaret Lanterman predicted. Bracewell also uses these VERY interesting words in his video:
"Popular culture... it always contains an element of premonition. Our society has become far more technological, a virtual reality, and I think that art responds to that scientific progress, by looking more and more towards the unknown, looking towards the idea of that which cannot be controlled."
Is Bracewell talking about MorrisseysWorld, and IS Bracewell Log Lady? VERY possibly!

I started this blog entry with a picture of those roses in Gothenburg, but WHO put them there? I sent an email off to the Akademibokhandeln book shop to ask if Morrissey had brought them. I got this reply:
It was an interested experience but a pity he did not stay long enough for all those in the line, most had been waiting for many hours...
No, Morrissey did not bring the flowers himself:)
I felt this was a 'fob off'. I didn't for one minute think that Morrissey himself would have actually carried the flowers in, so I tried again, this time asking if Morrissey had requested the roses? I received this short, sharp reply, with the niceties all gone:
No, he did not ask for any flowers at all!
I didn't actually think Morrissey himself would have asked for the flowers, so I persevered. I asked WHY the roses had been placed there. Here is the reply:
Dear Sir, I have no idea who bought them, but someone presumably thought it would look nice with fresh flowers on the table :)
The smiley face was back, and a SOMEONE thrown in for good measure. The whole world knows Morrissey is a VERY particular person. NOBODY would place flowers, rose or other, directly in front of Moz without permission! I tried one last time, and received this, 'Fu*k off and leave us alone' reply:
I don't have time to investige who bought those flowers, where or why, if it is extremely important to you check with his publisher Penguin books who was accompanying him at the time...!
I hope it's ok with you to end this rose-debate here as there are some other e-mails to reply but yours:)
I have decided to take 'Rose-gate' no further!
And finally for today, and on the subject of Sweden, and despite my blog having NEVER registered any interest from Sweden before, SOMEBODY in Sweden has been viewing it this week! Hmm.
