11. Twitterdilly Arms Top 10 Chart
Blue Rose Society Members present in the past 24 hours: Broken (a Morrissey pessoa), TRB, Marcus Markou, Chuck, LizzyCat, HeatherCat, AIR, GWO, MancLad, Willow, Romina, Astraea (a Morrissey pessoa), Greyer Girl (a Morrissey pessoa), JJazmine, Comrade Harps, Menippus (a Morrissey pessoa), Bermondsey Billy (a c*nt), The Other Half (left a comment about many people reading the blog, and then deleted it), Fifi (Fire.... and a Morrissey pessoa) and Kate 'Dolly' Ryan (a Morrissey pessoa). If I have missed anybody out, please leave a comment.
1. APOLOGIES FOR ABSENCE
None received, although HeatherCat asked that President Kyle be listed. I am only listing people who are active and getting involved. I would guess Kyle is at school, but it would be great to see his father, Brian here. No apologies have been received from John 'Loughton Lil' Gill, who quite frankly seems to come and go as he pleases. No apologies received from GOB, who is currently sulking after receiving a telling off from Parody Moz after she showed intolerance towards Broken and his sexual preferences. Come on GOB, reflect, and then get back on the bike. He is here to challenge our prejudices. Edge of Industrial photography guy has disappeared too. Is there really so few of us?
2. MATTERS ARISING FROM YESTERDAY
A) APOLOGIES FOR ABSENCE
I don't think I've ever been to a meeting where there is something brought up under 'Matters Arising' concerning 'Apologies For Absence', but Fifi posted this quote from Francois de La Rochefoucauld regarding her absence:
"Absence diminishes mediocre passions and increases great ones, as the wind extinguishes candles and fans fires"
B) LYRICS TO 'MY FINGERNAILS COLLECT THE WORLD'S PROBLEMS
HeatherCat, Parody Moz (via his secretary 'R') and Fifi, were all quick to point out that I had mixed the lyrics of the new Morrissey song 'My Fingernails Collect the World's Problems', with a parody song written by Parody Moz about Justin Bieber, called 'Never Say Always'! What can I say? I am hanging my rat shaped head in shame. Here is the comment left by Parody Moz (who still deludedly signs in as 'Morrissey'), which was sent by his admin guy/secretary 'R':
I really am a Grade A c**t. Is M serious that this beautiful new song will now not see the light of day until after his demise? Actually, and this has nothing to do with today's agenda, I have often thought about singers recording albums/songs to be released posthumously. You quite often get a situation where some old demos are found in a loft, but wouldn't it be a completely novel thing to do, to record an album, and then leave it safely locked up, with instruction that it only be released upon death. Has any artist ever done this before? Morrissey should do it. It could be called, 'I Bet You Miss Me Now I'm Gone'. Any other suggestions for a posthumous album title may be left in the comments section!
One last thing on this matter......Who the fuck is 'H'?
Fifi left this comment regarding my thoughts on Jeane:
"Great analysis, Mr Rodent. Very, very interesting indeed. Last line on 3. He was. He is. I am too.
The comment "He was. He is. I am too." would appear to mean that Johnny Marr WAS keeping a secret from Sandie Shaw about the subject matter on Jeane, and he still IS.... and so is Morrissey.... but I think I might just be right!
Comrade Harps also offers a theory:
D) SHIZU SALDAMANDO
With regard to the photo of Morrissey and Shizu, Fifi commented, "Bloody public domain."
E) There is no 'E'.... so we shall move on to the next item on the agenda.
3. THE LATEST FROM PARODY MOZ.... AND BROKEN
Parody Moz once again returned to the Twitterdilly Arms yesterday, and although there are just too many great witticisms to reproduce them all here, I worry that if I don't at least repeat some, they may all be lost forever (once he deletes the account, which inevitably he will), so here we go. Morrissey is quite generous with his wit, and doesn't keep all the best lines for Parody Moz; his pessoa 'Broken' is just as amusing.
With 1800 tweets and 642 followers, I'm obviously doing something very right.
At this rate if I typed for 24 hours a day it would take me 315 lifetimes to reach
I'm happier than ever on Twitter with my rag-tag bunch of followers, but I can't help feeling envious and bitter over Katy Perry.
Don't my tweets deserve a chance to influence the world, or at least appear in a gossip column in Missouri?
The purpose of life is to realise there isn't one.
The purpose of death is to challenge our faith in the pointlessness of life.
On twitter I wield an enormous influence - over my right hand.
Every tweet is an egregious act of wanton self-destruction. Each witticism further erodes one's hopes for this life and the one after.
Wit is one of the most destructive forces. Brilliant wit undermines one's trust and faith and hope until one is too demotivated to think.
Thus in producing genius wit, one erodes one's spirit until one is a witless bore. There are no exceptions to this rule.
Wit destroys the soul faster than cocaine. Cocaine steals the soul; wit obliterates it.
However bad things get, I can comfort myself with the thought that I'm neither Ryan Seacrest nor Richard Hammond.
Ryan Seacrest retweeting Kim Kardashian - is there a better definition of the word vacuous?
The outwardly beautiful and inwardly ugly have the most pleasurable lives.
The outwardly ugly and inwardly beautiful live principally for death.
The goal of democracy is to make people's lives better. The goal of politics is to make people's lives meaningless.
Broken: Love is like God - it only exists as a concept. Politics deals with absolutes - like sex and gold.
A valid point Broken. Politics deals with sex, gold and power, while pretending to manage love, money and justice.
We're all a bit Asperger's on Twitter.
I live to be ignored so that when I die I'll always be remembered.
Is anyone else on Twitter capable of being Wildean over a quick pot of tea?
The human mind can cope with absolutely anything, except reality.
Last time I left twitter for a year when I reached 8000 followers. This time I think I'll depart when I pass 1000.
As a certain singer said in an interview recently "Twitter is interesting." But ... how would he know?
I am not Morrissey.
I truly hope Victoria Beckham outlives me; the prospect of a tearful Elton trotting out ‘Candle in the Wind’ for a third time is unbearable.
Blessed with the wit to ask myself all the wrong questions, I quickly realised that to look at oneself is to dislike oneself.
After three lifetimes of soul-searching I have discovered the solution is simply to avoid all mirrors.
My retweet figures are scandalous. There are dustbin men giving daily updates who get better figures than I do.
Broken: It is a fri***ng disgrace how few retweets you get. You're like Rimbaud quoting Wilde on a particularly cloudy day. - Plus, you're a c*** and that usually goes down well on twitter.
Everybody's lost but they're pretending they're not.
Parody Moz: Bieber supports PETA.
Broken: Can shit music be cancelled out by PETA activism? In other words is it OK if you release 'Baby' just so long as you avoid meat and support animal rights?
Parody Moz: Releasing 'Baby' and supporting
Life is darker than the days but lighter than the nights.
The intelligent long for beauty. The beautiful long for fame. The famous long for wealth. And the wealthy long for obscurity.
Life is the curse and sleep is the cure.
Almost 2000 tweets. Still I struggle on, devoid of wit, charm and followers.
I long for the pure white light of poetic redemption, the grim leaden Manchester night and Rome's skyline by dawn.
