Day 856 - "MorrisseysWorld is now dead. The Blue Rose Society will never die." - Morrissey 16.1.14
2009 - 2013....PLUS AN ENCORE!
Why oh why did I finish yesterday's blog with Ayshea's 'Farewell'? I put the thought in his head. Bollocks!
Actually, I mustn't blame myself, it HAD to end. The synthetic Morrissey; who has been devoid of work ethic for the past five years, has got a job!
The obituaries have already started to roll in, and I would like to invite EVERYBODY who has been part of this incredible journey to leave their comment at the bottom of today's blog entry (if you have already posted it on yesterday's entry, then please post it again here). Don't be shy, let Morrissey, YES, REAL MORRISSEY, know how much you appreciated what he has done for us by giving us MorrisseysWorld.
For me, MorrisseysWorld has humanized Morrissey. Don't get me wrong, he is still The Mozziah, and he will always remain an enigma, but I could now meet him in the flesh, without either asking 'how are you?', or feeling the need to gush, fawn or lick his face. MorrisseysWorld has prepared me.
Although Morrissey will ALWAYS be my God, he is no longer an untouchable God. To me, Morrissey is, and I shall now quote the Oxford English Dictionary (hardly Wilde, but it will do!), "a person with whom one has a bond of mutual affection", ie, a friend.
The MorrisseysWorld journey has, as I have written many times, been PHENOMENAL, and nobody, not even Morrissey, or indeed Log Lady, could have predicted where it would go, or what would happen along the way.
The formation of the Blue Rose Society is by far the most important thing to have come from this adventure, and it will NEVER die. As to whether it will grow; so that one day EVERY Morrissey concert is awash with roses, only time will tell, but those of us who were lucky enough to have been here as the story unfolded, now have an obligation to repay Morrissey, by spreading the word, and wearing our Blue Roses with pride at the forthcoming concerts. There is no longer a time for excuses or embarrassment, Morrissey gave us a gift, and the least we can do is say thank you. It is no good sitting at the rear of a concert hall, we must STAND at the front, and present Morrissey with BLUE ROSES. I guarantee you he will take them.... I think!
We have laughed, we have cried, we have fawned, we have sung (oh the songs I have been introduced to that I never knew existed!), we have been entertained, but most of all, we have been kept alive. Morrissey has often said that there is no point to life, well there is, we have found it.
My thanks go out to EVERYBODY in the BRS who believed and kept on believing. None of us could have followed this path on our own. We trusted our instincts....and we were right.
The biggest thank you goes to Morrissey. You are right, this movement has "life, spirit and momentum". Parody Moz may have gone, but Morrissey remains with us.
This is not the end, this is the beginning.
Fire walk with me. Walk with us all.
Blue Rose Society
