Day 800 - A Little List

Our Mozzer left the following comment on my last blog entry:


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!



Could the "little list" be a tour list? Nothing has yet been announced, but if something appears on TTY in the next couple of days, we can add it to our own 'little list', the 'MorrisseysWorld Coincidence List', which actually isn't that little anymore.





I have nothing further to add today, except that it is the 800th day since I discovered the MorrisseysWorld blog. I started writing my blog 13 days later, and it has now received 311,518 hits. The most viewed page is 'Day 313-Who Is MorrisseysWorld?', although in fairness, that page has been hit by an awful lot of spammers.

I get a lot of spammers, so it is difficult to know just how many people are genuinely reading this blog because they think Morrissey is involved with MorrisseysWorld. On average, each of my blog entries receives around 350 hits, but if you take off spammers and multi-views, I would guess that there is a regular readership of about 40/50 people, of which, probably around 20 believe whole heartedly that Morrissey IS behind MW, and the others keep an eye on my blog either because they have a hunch that Moz is involved, or because they like the idea of the Blue Rose Society. It has now been more than TWO AND A HALF YEARS since the MW blog properly launched, and yet it would appear that no more than 20 people (The Deluded Dozen) believe in it. It really is a PHENOMENAL story..... and it goes on.





Of course, the vast majority of Morrissey's many thousands of worldwide fans NEVER found his blogsite. The lack of an audience led him to close the blog in late July of this year, and his 'pessoa' (meaning character - try googling Fernando Pessoa for more detail), 'Broken' posted an article on MW announcing that the blog was dead.

Broken is obviously still frustrated by the lack of an audience, as he posted the following comment on my last blog entry:


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.




I have no more to add.

  1. Everyone is so obsessed with numbers. Who cares that its only 20 people and how utterly pathetic of Broken to also care about numbers like that... anyone would think he was a former pop star obsessed with chart positions and number of singles sold. How dreary. How vain. Doesn't he realise that this entire planet and all reality is an illusion and that one spoken word of truth ehoes in eternity beyond this illusion, beyond death. Do you think when we pass on into the next stage or reality (of no time or space but instant knowledge of all) we will be energtically empowered, in spirit, by the songs of Justin Beiber? Or mabye, we will find that spiritual empowerment in a song, sung alone, by a man from another time, 1000s of years before, whose resonance still echoes through no-time and no-space. You all need to drop the whole 'size' and numbers thing. It's so pre-austerity... so 80s. Dare I say, so 'Earth'. The truth whispers and never dies... anything that shouts loudly to the masses is often a lie and fades with the passing of this illusion.

    2. Yeah man, this world is just an illusion and when we die we're all gonna just hear "I'd Love To" by Morrissey forever and that's what it's all about, brother - what happens when we die!

      Back in the real world, without the sloppy new-age sentiment, the reality of this awful world matters much more than a fantasy.

      Numbers don't necessarily matter - if they did I'd be praising the book from the rooftops, given that it's been at number one for a few weeks; rather what matters are truth, beauty and fulfilment. When it comes to these matters, the book is a joke.

      By the way, how do you know what the 'next reality' is like? For me, trying to understand this reality is challenge enough. I do admire you for trying, though.

      Ever Yours

      Broken

    4. "Numbers don't necessarily matter - if they did I'd be praising the book from the rooftops, given that it's been at number one for a few weeks;" I am rolling around with laughter thanks to the last bit of this statement from one of Mozzer's least popular pessoa's.

  2. Equally unnoticed by everyone and possibly out of frustration at not being able to get himself a decent recording deal, Mozzer now seems to have launched his own record label: http://www.bluerose-records.de/

  3. I absolutely love Marcus' comment above. As dear Oscar said, 'whatever is popular is wrong'. I love that we are a small yet devoted (and deluded) group and wouldn't want it any other way. Thanks to Ratty for blogging for so long and for continuing to do so. Viva BRS!

  4. Broken and ourmozzer were in chat last night, at different times.
    ' ourmozzer ' is the new name of M1959 apparently.
    It was quite a lively evening with the chatroom full at one point.

    Perhaps, like me, people view this site multiple times in order to
    catch up with the comments posted ?
    So glad that you are still running your blog Rats.

    Congratulations to Morrissey in having his image on the Peta stamps
    for his vegan/vegetarian lifestyle.

Well, it is the sort of thing he might do, definately do because its the last thing people would expect him to do which means it must be him. Or is it now too obvious, which would not be him at all... Which means its him! Wow... Now whoever it is, if its not him, is cleverer than him! More interesting than him! Yes... Can this be someone more interesting than Morrissey? Ah... That now sounds like him. But if not... Sadly, its not me.

  9. Broken left the Brokensworld chatroom last night saying he was off for a juicy steak promising that Our Mozzer 'might' pop in later. Ooooh what a treat. The deluded half-dozen waited with breath bated, and sure enough Broken returned dressed up in his Our Mozzer outfit! Asking what people thought of his book.... and reading aloud from Broken's email (his steak was 'pure sex' apparently). LOL! Too funny.

  10. Broken. You're not very good at lying. You know what I say is true and you love the book. But you have lost faith in yourself and this world, thats true. And you have sought rational answers to a huge cosmic joke, which is this reality you have chosen. Think less. Love more. Just ask for it. Ask. Instead of going into the woods and shooting yourself, which would be a rational thing to do given your state of mind, go find a tree that feels right and ask it to help you think less and love more. Its not rational but it will work as the big con here is rationality. Empirical science has destroyed our magic. Ask the tree for some magic. It will be fine.

    1. Marcus, let me get this right. I should try to stop thinking and reject empiricism, if not science itself, begin chatting to inanimate objects; and I must be suicidal because I thought your utterly crass New Age comment was a pile of steaming shite?

      Chatting to trees, appealing to magic and hoping this life will finally make sense only in death? Perhaps thinking isn't as overrated as I first thought.

    4. Marcus I think you're a bit of a fucking idiot. You need to learn to separate the whimsical and fanciful (magic, chatting to trees, creating silly plays) with the more serious (suicide, despair, science). Certain topics are a proper subject for your whimsical ramblings, while others are not.

      Mockingly encouraging suicide is not big, it's not clever, and it's certainly not ironical.

      Frankly I don't know what your problem is - are you on psychotropic medications? If not, you might wish to see your doctor.

      I'm not sure what your problem with me is - perhaps your mind's playing tricks on you?

    5. Two of the scammers having a fake argument is fooling nobody. Actually, it probably is fooling the lemmings, but it ain't fooling me. Marcus is an absolute prick, whereas Broken (Marcus' brother?) is pathetic.

    6. Can Marcus please clarify for us onlookers, are you having a go at Morrissey, or the character of Broken? What makes you think that he is suicidal (Morrissey or Broken)? It's a bit sick, and I agree with Broken that mocking suicide isn't big, clever or funny and not a topic for irony.

    7. Who's suicide did I mock? This gets more absurd by the blog post. I like it. Broken, if you've got any integrity at all, youd meet me face to face and give me the dressing down I probably deserve. I can be a prick, for sure. But my liberation comes from catching my reflection at odd moments, in an elevator, shop window etc and realising just what a dick or an idiot I am. Its why I am one step ahead of you in the evolutionary ladder of this cosmic joke. I therefore recommend you do the same Broken and Anon. Next time you catch your reflection allow yourself the joy and pleasure of seeing a prick and idiot looking back at you. I know its unthinkable at this moment. But just allow the idea of it, even for a split second. Then let it grow into a smile. And then liberate yourself. Allow the dirty secret to become a shining light. Say it loud! Told by an idiot! A poor player that struts and frets his hour on the stage and is heard no more. Full of sound and fury signifying nothing. Say it. I am an idiot also! Just like Marcus. (By the way, lets leave Morrissey out of this. I am sure he is far too busy and far too intelligent to be bothering with such lowly contretemps).

    8. I know you only want to meet up to make covert footage for your forthcoming documentary.

      "my liberation comes from catching my reflection at odd moments, in an elevator, shop window etc and realising just what a dick or an idiot I am. Its why I am one step ahead of you in the evolutionary ladder of this cosmic joke."

      If you don't realise the 'Broken' character is well aware he's a dick, perhaps it's you that's missing the joke?

      " lets leave Morrissey out of this. I am sure he is far too busy and far too intelligent to be bothering-"

      Is this the literary icon Morrissey who cannot use "you and I" correctly? Is this the true and proper poet laureate who writes adolescent purple prose? Is this the same Morrissey who recently wrote a tepid, self-important, whiney book so bloated it actually floats when you try to flush it down the toilet? Is this the only true genius of the pop circuit - the one with no formal qualifications who failed his 11+? As for busy, what do you imagine he's doing? Giving interviews to obscure Lithuanian pirate radio stations about his new book? Or selling his latest album out of a Transit Van in Bognor? I'd imagine he's sitting at home, watching films and feeling sorry for himself, and probably popping over to FTM and M-S.com for his online kicks. Even he wouldn't stoop to AYNIM.com.

  11. Morrissey is a massive international icon, does anybody seriously believe he would have anything to do with a shitty two-bit blog? He has never heard of this pissy blog, let alone read any of it or left messages. It's all a massive con by some poncy twats in London, who are going to make a documentary about internet fakery. To pick on innocent Moz fans is shameful.

    4. I agree Lizzy. The 'coincidences' would stand up in court as proof that he was at least playing along. HIs four denials demonstrate he has seen the blog regularly and therefore that these things have all happened entirely by coincidence really doesn't stand up to scrutiny. TTY lists appearing to agree with twitter lists posted 24 hours beforehand? Blue rose ties, shirts and actual blue roses? Owl eyes? T-shirts with twitter witticisms on them? The way he looked at his hand during Alma Matters, clearly making reference to recent blog articles? All the fulfilled pledges? Get real anon - Moz is the one who's wound us up, not the other way around, which is why BRS is so fascinating, so mesmeric, and so frankly extraordinary.

  14. Am I reading this blog because I think Morrissey is involved in MorrisseysWorld? No. I read it because I find it entertaining, informative and sometimes downright funny. I appreciate the work that Rats puts into this to be the unglamorous glue to hold a small group of Morrissey fans together and provide a place for us to post comments, information or just spout off.
    Did I read the MorrisseysWorld blog because I thought Morrissey was involved in some way? No. I found MW in early July 2011 and it was hilarious – the tour diaries, how it was going to be the number 1 Morrissey news site and take over from solow, the agony aunt columns, etc. And then there was the MW twitter account as we followed Our Mozzer learning how to tweet and trying to get the attention of Justin Bieber. Absolutely priceless!! As for the signs – well this was a moveable target as we were l’OO’king out for ironic t-shirts, roses, Twin Peak references, lumps of wood, three beats of a gong, and on and on. And was I watching out for signs? Yes indeedy.
    As to why I do not believe that Morrissey was involved in the MorrisseysWorld blog. Many reasons so will just flag up a few points. Firstly, from when I first stumbled on the MWblog there was always a reference on the blog to it being a parody/satirical look at ‘the life of Morrissey’ written from Morrissey’s perspective. The MWblogger has been accused of passing himself off as Morrissey, but as an affectionate self-aware parody the author is ‘Morrissey’ (or Our Mozzer) and therefore has to appear more outrageously Morrisseyesque than the man himself. Secondly, the MorrisseysWorldismoz blog that first appeared in September 2011 was written by the same author as the MWblog. The divinely written MisM blogs purpose was to ‘present the evidence that it is Morrissye’s blog’. Now if Morrissey was involved in the MWblog, why would he be involved in another blog whose purpose was to prove that he was involved in the other blog? Baffling. Thirdly, the question of why the only flowers Morrissey has accepted in concerts recently are roses. I believe that he does this for purely practical comfort reasons. Flowers that have hollow stems, such as daffodils, gladioli, gerbera, etc can be sappy and sticky if you hold them in your hands, whereas flowers like roses have woody stems and the only thing you really have to watch out for in holding onto a rose is possible thorns. Fourthly, this has all been done before with the Ringleader blog in 2006/7 (the MWblogger acknowledged his involvement in that) and a short-lived twitter account which was suspended after about 6 months in 2009.
    Of course none of this explains why Morrissey drew attention to the MWblog in his TTY statement of May 2011 when nobody was giving it any attention.
    Just have to wait now to see if A Nonny Mouse judges me to be a lemming or not. Can you be half a lemming?

      the ONLY person who has made the blogs seemt o be the work of moz is moz himself. He denied his authorship 4 times, including on one occasion when this site was unheard of by anybody. He also replicated strange poses from this site. He also goes to great lengths to obtain roses from the audience, promised on here, and especially prominently blue ones.

      That's not the blogger - it's Morrissey. He knows of the blog. Boz even admitted the blue roses society is serious and he knows of it

    4. yeah they seriously took the blue rose idea from another fan who anonymously mentioned blue roses then decided it was a nice gimmick for themselves.Making that fan now hate them for being so fake and stupid and also not listen anymore.That person knows they are full of it .That person does not think they are terribly broad minded either .It is sad and pathetic that these people formed a clique around a comment that was made by someone else just to keep getting attention then act like douche bags toward anyone else including the person they stole that from. Really kind of assholish if you ask me.

  15. Am I the only person who posts as himself? If so, I want my posts to be given extra weighting in any disputes or arguments. Everyone either uses a pseudonym or Anon.

    2. true chuck. Morrissey has done pretty much everything the blogger said he would, from taking his shirt off at specific shows (when everyone thought he'd quit stripping!) to picking out blue roses and other roses, to replicating the poses on the blog in strange fashion. Most people, if they're honest, would conclude MW = Morrissey. I don't think it is actually, but he MUST be playing along.
