Day 798 - Something Imminent, Bold and Beautiful

The following comment was left on my blog yesterday:

Wow! You are such an arse kisser with Morrissey that you cannot even take a second to criticize the fact that this recent rant rambles on and on like a bad Jobriath song. He tells you and your other mindless drones what to think.

FAN


I decided to delete the comment, as Solow is the place for the Morrissey haters, not here, but I couldn't help smiling at the irony of 'FAN's comment. This blog of mine exists NOT because I and the others who come here believe everything Morrissey "tells" us, but because we DIDN'T believe him! Morrissey issued FOUR denials that he was behind MorrisseysWorld, which virtually ALL of his fans DID believe, especially the regular users at Solow, but the 'Deluded Dozen' (who are not to be confused with the whole Blue Rose Society) REFUSED to be 'told', and instead, delved deep to find the truth.

There were some other interesting comments left on my blog of yesterday, including this one from Astraea, aka '@FadingGoldLeaf', who I suggested might be Morrissey:



LOL LOL LOL!!!

So I somehow managed to inadvertently make FTM front page news today! I'm definitely not Morrissey though.

I'm just a flitting magpie. Born with an eye for shiny baubles, an ear for troubles and for the troubled, and a past full of things both interesting and not. Mostly the former, and slightly less of the latter, because time is short and life is a pigsty. The music to the soundtrack of my life is exquisite, the choices impeccable, and I definitely have an ongoing penchant for an Italian here and there, but none of these things make me Moz, and clicking your heels three times won't take you back to Kansas, either.

I am a chatterbox who sometimes exists in a whisper, and as someone once recently reminded me, I should dine only on ivy. On a good day, I can make people laugh. My eye is easily swayed but luckily my mind and my principles are not, and thank goodness for that, is all I can say.

I run rings around the circles, but what is life without a bit of fun? I guarded the mischievous glint in my eye over all of these years, because after all, everyone should know what the one single thing is that they would first save in a fire.

And my only gripe for today is that if my name was going to be posted under a whole stream of photos of the royal family, it should have been in lights.

I'm off to look for Atlantis again now, and smother myself under books and blankets in front of the fire. Just remember what he sang to you,

"Existence is only a game..."

He wasn't lying.

Deftly yours,

Astraea



I was OBVIOUSLY mistaken about Astraea being Morrissey, after all, 'Morrissey would NEVER' use a "LOL", but then again, if Astraea ISN'T a real person, and is a pessoa, then it ISN'T Morrissey using a "LOL", it is Astraea, and this is the mistake that everybody made with MorrisseysWorld, because it WASN'T Morrissey producing that blog, it was 'Parody Moz' aka 'Our Mozzer'. It's all VERY simple really!

OUR MOZZER - AUTHOR OF MORRISSEYSWORLD AND DEFINITELY NOT MORRISSEY

Romina, a member of the Blue Rose Society (although not a member of the 'Deluded Dozen' because she(?) doesn't believe that Morrissey is the author of MW), also left an interesting comment on my blog yesterday, drawing reference to the fascinating blog 'Another Nickel In The Machine', which is written by Rob Baker (aka @robnitm). The 'Nickel' blog was first mentioned on this blog of mine when Our Mozzer posted the picture of Bobby Britt on the MorrisseysWorld blog.


BOBBY BRITT

It was Romina who identified the picture of Britt on the MW site, which baffled me at the time, as Romina claims to be a housewife from Rome, with only limited pigeon English (when it suits her!), so HOW could she know the identity of an exotic male dancer from 1920's London? I have never been able to get to the bottom of WHO Romina can possibly be, but she knows SO much about things that she really shouldn't know about!

Rob Baker's 'Nickel' website (which is all about London of old) is well worth a thorough look, even if just for the photographs from the past. There is nothing more interesting than photos of people, particularly non-famous people, as you just can't help wondering about their lives. Here are some of my favorites from both  'Nickel' and Baker's twitter feed:

VICAR ANYMORE!

Another person to leave comment on my blog yesterday was our old friend, Broken, who posted:



A mention for the IOW: so often a topic in MW chat and on FTM; how delightful.

The World Won't Listen.

Something imminent. Something bold. Something beautiful.



What is it about the Isle of Wight (IOW) that sees both MorrisseysWorld and now Morrissey mention it? There are plenty of other islands off the British Isles that Morrissey could have mentioned, but he chose the Isle of Wight. To my knowledge (not that there is any reason for me to know), Morrissey has never been to the IOW (although he nearly played the IOW Festival in 2005). It has been reported that Rob da Bank, the organizer of Bestival on the Isle of Wight, has Morrissey on his 'Wish List' of artists, so COULD Morrissey's mention of the IOW have a meaning?


RYDE IOW - HOME TO THE LARGEST ANNUAL SCOOTER GATHERING IN THE WORLD



ROB DA BANK - WISHING FOR MOZ


And finally for today, promo cds of Satellite of Love have been spotted. As there is to be NO cd single released commercially, the promos will no doubt be very sought after:

And finally, finally, Kate Ryan (aka @DollyWilde) returned to twitter briefly yesterday to point out that Morrissey's list of 'Non UK' political and social reformers (in his latest TTY statement); included Anthony Burgess, who WAS in fact British. Now WHY would a doolally Dolly from Canada know that? The tweet has since been removed.


ANTHONY BURGESS - BORN IN HARPURHEY MANCHESTER

And finally, finally, finally, I have added the MorrisseysWorld tag line back into the top bit of my blog. I took it out a few weeks ago, but this blog is only here because of the discovery of the MorrisseysWorld, so I felt it should be the first thing people read when they first discover my blog. They won't believe it, of course, but that is of little concern to me.

  2. I notice the c*** has finally restored that line of due reverence towards a certain mesmerizing self-aware parody blog thing... Boz...! Boz....! Boz, Come here at once!... Boz, now that the dreary little blogger from Hampshire's most inbred community has finally shown a little old fashioned respect to a singing icon, it's time to release our little list. The time is now. Do let Mikey know, old son. And Boz - I'll have a cup of Ceylon now. A splash of milk. Eighty-two degrees Centigrade. Chop, chop, Boz!

    1. Little list?? Of leisure centres in Essex perhaps? Where a certain self-parodying icon might make a rare appearance? We wait . .

    2. What a splash of milk...really your holyness, you do know where milk comes from right...try soya milk.. yours Manc

    3. Morrissey! Wear a blue rose in public, please!!!!!

      Delete
    4. I do hope that the " little list " features a leisure centre south of the M4 or even the M5 !
      Mozland has come back to life again with Ratty updating his blog on an almost daily basis
      and Morrissey, Our Mozzer and Broken etc. communicating, which always makes me very happy.
      I am proud to be a Deluded Blue Roser.

    5. Even after His Holiness condescends to address us all, this blog thing only manages nine - sorry, now ten - comments. It's all over, old son. The blog is dead. The musical career is over. The writing career stillborn. Still, perhaps there's a future for you as a Calvin Klein model!

      Boz, stand up to him! Don't let him bully you!

      Broken - in my own sick way.

    6. ...or as a ghost-writer for autobiographies? Perhaps Morrissey could offer his services as pen-for-hire or even editor for those who want to transform their terse, honest life stories into a grotesque, overblown paean to self in the third person?

      Delete
    7. No need to be melodramatic, Broken (as fun as it may be) - there are still plenty of us who care. Of course I'm thrilled that His Holiness made an appearance here but I didn't comment because I didn't feel I had anything worthwhile to add that hadn't already been said. We eagerly await the little list and I don't believe anything is over just yet. Glad you're back with us, Broken :)

    8. I love it Broken, when you become all OTT and dramatic.
      Perhaps Morrissey could pen scripts for Westenders,
      Jubilee Street, Cloverdale or Ivyoaks ? ( Not that I watch any of them )
      On the other hand I like the idea of Our Moz being a Calvin Klein model. * daydreams *
      Still here, still deluded and proud of it !

    9. So few comments.......but so many hits on this blog. Why? They cannot all be by TRB. **baffled**

      Delete
    10. Show yourself sOOn please! Always love to see from His Holiness. So glad to hear from Broken. Both should be Calvin Klein models! lol
      & thank you for standing up for animal rights!
      Always showing a little old fashioned respect to a singing icon... of course
      P.S* yes please do wear a blue rose in public!

  3. Broken’s ‘something’ reminded me of the old folk rhyme, just missing the ‘something blue’.

  4. Ah this is what I live (on the internet) for! Such excitement things were getting a little dreary and I've been stalking the chatroom its really lonely in there as of late...JJazmine

  5. Hello Ratty! I got to say, once again, there is nothing to discover about me, anyway thank you! About Bobby Britt what can I say, Google is a great help and then I became a regular reader of Rob Baker's fantastic blog. Rome, the city who was'nt built in a day, is too far for beeing include in the little list, but i got Always a little hope. And now I got some homework todo, I'm truly a middle class housewife from Appia Nuova, nothinh to share with very high society from Appia Antica. Cheers Rat!
