THE MARR'S - CODED
THE MUSEUM OF OLD AND NEW ART (MONA) TASMANIA - IT EVEN LOOKS LIKE A SECRET HQ FOR CODE BREAKERS
So, did anybody else see Johnny Marr's tweet about the code inspiring RANK? Please let me know. I certainly didn't see it, but then again, I wouldn't have, I am STILL blocked by Marr! And WHY did Marr delete the tweet?.... And HOW did Fifi remember the exact wording of the tweet, seeing as it has gone? Mystery upon mystery upon mystery.
One thing is for sure, every single comment that is left on this blog by Fifi is both important and relevant. There were a number of comments left by Fifi over the Christmas period that I haven't reported on, because I took Christmas off, but it is time to revisit them. Here is the first, which carries on from my blog entry on Day 831 of FTM, in which I asked if there were any more Jean Cocteau references in the works of The Smiths:
HATFUL OF HOLLOW
I personally can't see how 'Par Bruno' inspired the tattoo, but i found this line drawing on Solow, provided by somebody called 'Smiler'. Does anybody know where this drawing originates?
Fifi is RIGHT about the jumper, the wallpaper, AND Moz turning in the 'All You Need Is Me' video. The BLUE jumper has little flowers on it...roses? The wallpaper is BLUE....and looks to be covered in roses too! Moz DOES turn in a 'Hand in Glove' way. Watch: http://vimeo.com/1299100
"ALL YOU NEED IS ME"
And there's more! Thanks to Comrade Harps perseverance, Fifi provided more information over Christmas about Jean Cocteau, and his influence on Morrissey. Here is Comrade Harps question, and Fifi's responses from Day 833 of FTM:

All of my poetry is here. I trace that which is invisible.
Jean Cocteau, Opéra 1927
And there's more from Fifi:
The Smiths first LP was released in February 1984, so did something happen on Jan 14th 1984 relating to the album? Answers on a postcard please.
