1. APOLOGIES FOR ABSENCE
Girl On Bike
To set the record straight, I didn't criticise Broken's sexual preferences, nor did I call JB (or anyone for that matter) a fag. Parody Moz correct in stating that there is a line that shouldn't be crossed. For me, that line is being accused of things like mocking someone's suicide attempt (???) etc. Real Moz or not, but accusing people of things they didn't do and tweeting sarcastic comments about them is not on. But that is my problem, not yours.
2. MATTERS ARISING FROM YESTERDAY
A) 'H'Yesterday, Morrissey mentioned 'H' when describing caramelised onion. I took it to mean a person called 'H', perhaps a waiter, but GWO offers this:

HeatherCat has pointed out that Fifi's comment left on Day 859 of FTM referred to item 4 of that day's agenda, ie Rank, and not item 3, ie Jeane, as I reported yesterday! I really am getting rather muddled lately. In truth, I didn't understand what Fifi meant when she said, "last line on 3. He was. He is. I am." Here is the whole comment from Day 859:
Heather's interpretation was later confirmed by Fifi as being correct:
Bermondsey Billy got confused by this, and thought it therefore meant Fifi was referring to track three on Rank (Vicar in a Tutu), but Heather later explained:
So what is this secret code that is in Rank? And on the subject of secrets, WHY were both @MorrisseysMum and @Banjaxer tweeting the number '22' the other day, and WHY, before disappearing from twitter, did Fifi and 'Mum' both post tweets quting the 'Vicar of Wakefield'? WHY WHY WHY? So many mysteries.

C) TWITTERDILLY ARMS TOP 10
Romina suggested that Kristeen Young's song should have been higher in yesterday's chart, but the way in which she suggested this, with a highly amusing reply in 'broken' English, has ONCE AGAIN thrown suspicion back on her as being a Morrissey pessoa. I have always believed she had to be a pessoa, but her Italian is so fluent, I just couldn't work it out.... but it's simple, Damon Anacreonte is responsible for providing the Italian... or maybe Moz has learnt Italian himself! Either way, Romina HAS to be connected to Morrissey.
Here is Romina's comment from yesterday, which interestingly enough mentions 'swimming', just as Fifi mentioned it the day before! Hmm:
The Parody Moz account has once again been closed, so there is nothing to report. More importantly though (and you'll see where this leads under items 5 & 6), Broken has been back on twitter with his 'Ironic Boy Belieber Twitter Page'. It is also important to note that Broken's twitter profile reads:
'A Boy Belieber. I believe Justin has talent and will in a few years discover The Smiths. He will be the new Morrissey/David Bowie. Watch this space.'
Here are some of Broken's (@Broken1andonly) tweets from yesterday, and remember, these have been written by Morrissey. This IS important:
Will the real Justin Bieber please stand up?
I think the real JB is a sweet, slightly damaged dude from Canada and he's created an image to sell to the world.
He loves animals, his family and pizza pie.
But somewhere along the line he picked up a Georgia accent, indoor shades and a few Ferraris. He needs to find himself.
Maybe that's what Justin's doing? Finding himself?
People don't realise Justin just has to live. He'll make mistakes but he'll come out stronger than ever.
He's too good a singer and performer to keep doing this bland R&B shit.
Menippus (@Menippus) made a very brief appearance yesterday, with just this one tweet of note:
For some surreal reason I dreamt I was at Judy Finnigan's 70th birthday party at a funfair/carnival. No Bieber in sight.
Astraea (@FadingGoldLeaf) is the musical director of Morrissey's online life, and most of her tweets are music related. I actually wonder if Astraea is feeding us material that may at a later stage appear on Morrissey's pre-concert warm up video. I do hope so, her taste is impeccable. If that is to be the case, then her account will no doubt disappear before the tour starts.
Yesterday, after the weekly chart was published, Astraea posted the Jayne Mansfield's version of Quando Quando Quando, which is just UN FUCKING BELIEVABLE! : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H_TKbZWGtwg. Astraea also posted Suey by Jayne M, which will make your liver quiver: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KHpoeJopm-M
The only other pessoa to put in an appearance yesterday (the only other to my knowledge that is, although there could of course be hundreds more) was Kate 'Dolly' Ryan, but as she has now apparently blocked everybody, I can't report on her tweets, although she was having a rant about Morrissey not using his official twitter account '@itsMorrissey', which incidentally hasn't been used since 2009, and yet still has over 72,000 followers. It will be interesting to see if the marketing men at Capitol look to get that account active before the next album comes out.
It is interesting to note in Fifi's first quote above, that she posts a link to floods in Saint Tropez, and then mentions buying Fred Perry wellies in her second post. Presumably this means that Morrissey is heading to the South of France, as I previously suggested.... perhaps he is already there!
So, WHY France? Morrissey's previous two albums were recorded in LA and Rome, so is he heading to France for any particular reason? I personally believe that Jean Cocteau is the pull, and Cocteau has obviously influenced Morrissey for years, but why go now, why has he not gone before? Perhaps Moz always meant to record in France, but just never got around to it.
Perhaps Morrissey is planning to meet up with Francoise Hardy. Could that be the French connection? There has been rather a lot of Francoise's music played in the Twitterdilly Arms lately by Astraea.
5. WHO/WHAT IS BLUE ROSE
Right, I've put it off for long enough, so here goes.... THE MAIN EVENT of today's blog entry.
I don't really know how to start, and I don't even know what I am going to write, so let's see what spews out of my rat like brain. For many people, this whole next bit might be a little bit too much to comprehend, and I have to admit, it is WAY outside of my comfort zone.
Ultimately, most Morrissey fans will probably see the Blue Rose Society as just a bit of fun, although I use the word 'most' fairly loosely, because actually, most Morrissey fans have never heard of the BRS. Actually, the word 'fun' is a fairly loose word too, as most Morrissey fans who have heard of the BRS don't think it's fun, they think we're all a bunch of crackpots, and what I am just about to write is probably only going to heighten those thoughts.
I suppose that this whole Blue Rose thing could just be a Morrissey Fan Club, set up by the man himself, via a parody website, but I agree with Broken, "it goes deeper than any of you realise."
I am very much an atheist, and as far as I am aware, I have never had any sort of spiritual side. I'm just your average run of the mill bloke, who likes cricket and football, works hard (or probably smart rather than hard if I'm honest), and doesn't try to think too deeply about things... but this MorrisseysWorld experience has opened my mind on so many matters, and I keep stumbling across things that seem to link to other things. Jigsaw, jigsaw, jigsaw. I'm waffling aren't I?
Ok... *deep breath* my theory on Blue Rose is that Morrissey, or perhaps we, the BRS as a group, have 'subconsciously' created a modern day equivalent of either the Priory of Sion or the Rosicrucian, but perhaps not with any religious connotation.
For those who haven't immediately logged off, and are interested enough to want to see where this is going, then I aught to explain just what the Priory of Sion is; although because I have neither read The Da Vinci Code, nor read any more than a wikipedia entry on the Priory of Sion, I am very much out of my depth here. Here is the wiki entry: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Priory_of_Sion
The original Priory of Sion is supposedly a secret organization responsible for preserving the truth about the 'Real Jesus', and according to what I have read, it's Grand Master between 1918 until his death in 1963, was none other than Jean Cocteau. It is believed by some that Cocteau was unable to find a successor to his role, presumably because there was nobody who he felt worthy, and it may well be that the order failed to continue after 1963.... but if I had a spiritual bone in my body, I would say that perhaps it was just 'on hold'.
It could be that Cocteau had initially earmarked the younger Raymond Radiguet to succeed him as Grand Master, which is why, when Radiguet died so suddenly, Cocteau took it so badly.
Although all this is out of my comfort zone, I can't help but feel that there was a 'spiritual' reason for Cocteau to come to Britain in 1959 and draw his 'Three Frescoes of the Annunciation, Crucifixion and Assumption' at the Notre Dame de France church in London. Could it be that Cocteau was drawn to England because he sensed his successor was here, even though he didn't know their identity? Was it his calling?
Cocteau's drawing in the Notre Dame de France church is very interesting, in that he doesn't show the face of the person on the cross, so although most people would presume it is Christ, it could be Cocteau's faceless successor. Cocteau drew a large Blue Rose, a large letter 'M', and he signed it off with DDD.
More information about Cocteau's drawing in London can be read here: http://internationaltimes.it/on-jean-cocteaus-crucifixion-2/
The article mentions another society with whom Cocteau was supposedly involved, called the Rosicrucian. I have a feeling that I have read somewhere before that Oscar Wilde may also have been linked to the Rosicrucian. Information on the Roscicrucians can be read here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rosicrucian_Order
I don't believe for one minute that Morrissey has ever been 'inducted' as the Grand Master of the Priory of Sion, but I DO believe that he himself feels some sort of spiritual connection with Cocteau, and Morrissey will be more than aware of both the Priory of Sion and the Rosicrucian. Does Morrissey feel that he is Cocteau's successor, albeit that it may be a 'spiritual' succession, and if so, has he ever shared this with anybody?
I can't imagine for one minute that Morrissey would ever go public with such matters, it would put him into David Icke territory, and I don't believe for one minute that either the media, or indeed Morrissey's own fans, would be willing to let him off lightly if he ever made such a claim
All the masonic imagery that Morrissey placed on the MorrisseysWorld blog, was put there for a reason. Perhaps it was Morrissey showing that he knew there was a connection between him and the Priory/Rosicrucians, but maybe he didn't know what he was supposed to do with it. Perhaps it is only the natural evolvement of the BRS that has awoken something inside him, which again, may account for him feeling the need to record in France, close to Cocteau.
I may of course be barking mad, but there is definitely something spiritual about the Blue Rose Society, and perhaps I have only touched the tip of an iceberg, perhaps this already runs far deeper.
Morrissey IS Blue Rose.
6. JUSTIN BIEBER
As well as masonic imagery, another 'constant' throughout this MorrisseysWorld journey has been the inclusion of Justin Bieber. There has to be a reason why Bieber of all people is continuing to be part of 'this', and I think it could be that despite Bieber's awful songs, fashion faux pas' and THAT moustache, Morrissey finds that he has a connection to him, and if I am right about the whole Priory of Sion thing, Morrissey could actually see Bieber as his protege!
Having observed Morrissey's behavior towards Bieber, both in 'real life' through press comments, and via Morrissey's 'online pessoas', I would guess that Morrissey is battling himself about Bieber. Every bone in Morrissey's body must be telling him that Bieber is just "another nonsense non-star" who can't dance, can't sing, can't do anything... and yet, and yet, and yet.... he feels a connection. By using the pessoa of 'Broken', the 'ironic boy belieber', Morrissey can pass the whole Bieber thing off as a joke, and if Bieber fails to live up to expectation as a successor, then the whole thing WAS a joke, but those words, "I believe Justin has talent and will in a few years discover The Smiths. He will be the new Morrissey/David Bowie. Watch this space.", I believe could very well come true. Jigsaw, jigsaw, jigsaw.
There was an interesting tweet the other day, not by Broken, but by Parody Moz, which said something like, "They are ruining him." Bieber is only 19 (20 in March), and if he's not careful 'they' might not only ruin him, they might kill him. And people thought 'The Kid's a Looker' was a throw-away song? Bollocks!
7. THE PESSOAS
8. ALBUM AND TOUR
There are now just 10 days before work starts on the album. The excitement is going to be electric. Hopefully the tour will also be announced soon, and I can't wait to see what cities the tour takes in. The 2013 tour kicked off in Long Island, especially, it would seem, for Kyle, the President of the Blue Rose Society. Will Morrissey play concerts close to the homes of EARS, GOB, Loughton and me? He knows where we all live! And will any of Astrea's music, or any of the MorrisseysWorld imagery make it onto the tour video? Can you imagine our faces if Billy Britt suddenly appeared?
It's going to be a GREAT year for Morrissey.
9. ANY OTHER BUSINESS
A) David Bret
I had never heard of David Bret until the other day, when a few of the Blue Rosers got into an argument with him on twitter, but although he is being particularly scathing about MorrisseysWorld and Parody Moz, it is only because he, like many others, just can't comprehend that Morrissey could possibly be behind it. From the comments left by Broken though, I get the feeling that Moz actually has a soft spot for Bret. Here is what he tweeted:
Broken: Bret seems a bit petty. Have you seen him interviewed? He's rather eccentric. But he's superior to the average Moz fan. He's also right about M-solo. He's more enlightened than the cesspit of Morrissey fans. He's a many-times-published writer. He's got something to say.
If Bret is as intelligent as Morrissey thinks, then it will only be a matter of time until he realises that there couldn't possibly be anybody except Moz, who is behind MorrisseysWorld. Many have tried to find somebody else who could possibly be behind it, but once you put together all the pieces of the jigsaw, there actually isn't ANYBODY else it could be. It's impossible. Slowly, slowly, they will all begin to realise.
B) Blue Rose member, Chuck Smith, has created a blog, which keeps tabs of all the 'coincidences' and 'signs' that surround the mystery of MorrisseysWorld. It is currently a work in progress, but hopefully she will list as many as she can.... and there really have been HUNDREDS. Here is the blog: http://morrisseymystery.blogspot.co.uk/
So, that's it. I have entered unchartered waters with my Blue Rose theory. I certainly don't expect Morrissey to admit it, but we are on a ride to somewhere, and I'm holding on tight.
