Dolly sat in the corner of the pub, on her own as usual, and EVERYBODY steered clear of her, as they always do. I never really know what to say to Dolly, as she never seems to want to interact, but she did have these words for me yesterday:
I don't think she likes me much! Some would say that she is a good judge of character. This morning, she has posted this photo, presumably of her diary, which DEFINITELY puts to bed that she ISN'T Morrissey... doesn't it?:
And the rear:
I just don't know whether to carry on following Dolly or not. She absolutely fills my timeline with utter drivel, but.... there is something. I just can't put my finger on it.
Log Lady's appearance in the 'Arms' caused a stir, as her presence always does. Here is what she had to say:
Log Lady @LogLadyOfMW
Log Lady then took a slug of GWO's straight scotch, and left!
Mum (@MorrisseysMum) seemed to back up Log Lady's announcement of sad news, with the following:
*Before I move on, I must just mention that the Mum account has very subtly started 'wearing' one of the blue twitter verification ticks. I say 'subtly', because you can't actually see it unless you click onto the profile page. Let me put this in layman's terms for anybody who doesn't get the significance of this. The owner of that account WOULD BE SUED BY MORRISSEY (or at least his mother) for passing themselves off on twitter as the verified owner of an account. Read that last sentence again, Rosy Mires, and then tell me once again that Kevin Marinan owns the account.
What is more, the Mum account has had the twitter location switch turned on, and these observations have been made:
Morrissey is openly FLAUNTING that he is on twitter, and STILL nobody notices. WHY have no journalists noticed the verification tick? The answer of course, is that they are all too lazy. The Mum account has just 734 followers. You couldn't make this up! Mum also offered this yesterday:
"Now what?" indeed! What exactly will happen when all the thousands of Morrissey fans finally realise that he has been on twitter for three years, and had a blog for four? Well, according to Parody Moz, they will kick themselves, but more about that in a minute*
BETTY DWYER (THE 'REAL' MOZ MUM) WITH HER MOTHER. (I WONDER IF BETTY READS FTM?)
As soon as Log Lady had left the Twit Arms, I I immediately started shouting that a TTY message with sad news was imminent, and I even alerted Julie Hamill, the leader of the #MozArmy, so that she would see for herself that this whole MW nonsense isn't nonsense after all. My shouting was of course wasted, because A) Julie Hamill just stuck her fingers in her ears and went la la la, and B) No TTY statement came! There is NO C)!
I think my shouting about there being something 'sad' in the statement, was a prediction that would be hard to shake off as a coincidence, so I 'reckon' Moz pulled it.... although that's rather conceited of me, and can't actually be true, because it was Log Lady's prediction, so my 'shouting' wouldn't have mattered.... although perhaps the idea was to delete the Log Lady tweet, so that it couldn't be proven it was ever said! Aghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh and Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr! I think that perhaps I over think these things at times, although interestingly, when I sent the following tweet to Parody Moz (who just so happened to turn up in The Arms at exactly the same time as Log Lady did), Log Lady then retweeted it, probably with a wry smile on her face:
Before I move on to yesterday's offerings from Parody Moz, I must firstly cover those words of Log Lady's. Firstly she has mentioned Morrissey appearing with a 'star' and she has mentioned France. Could this be, as we have previously mentioned, that Morrissey has met up again with Lady Gaga?
LADY GAGA (OR IS IT GWEN STEFANI?) WITH MOZ AND JUSTIN 'SEMI-PRECIOUS' TRANTER
Secondly, what was that "mind-oriented and sad" message that was going to be posted on TTY? I shall ignore the bit about fish eating their mountain bikes, but what about the last sentence, "Two questions will be posed. Blue again. 'Wake up'." Could these be Cocteau related? Time, as ever, will tell.
So, on to the arrival of Parody Moz in the Twitterdilly Arms. Once again I am unable to repeat most of his actual words, because he has once again closed the account, but I am able to scramble through my time line and try and make some sense of it. Some of the tweets remain on my phone, which for some reason tends to hold on to some tweets, even after an account is closed, but they too will soon be gone.
Moz began his visit to the world's greatest on-line pub, with a brief interaction with Moz Army leader, Julie Hamill, whom Moz corrected for using 'Everyday' in the wrong context, pointing out that he had made the same mistake with 'Everyday is like Sunday'. Although Julie doesn't believe PM to be the real Moz, I told her that she should cherish that tweet, as one day she will look back on her very first conversation with Morrissey, and laugh at how he corrected her. I even mentioned that she may one day write about it on her excellent blog (JulieHamill.Com), whilst interviewing Moz.
JULIE HAMILL HAVING AN EVERYDAY EXPERIENCE WITH HARRY STYLES
Parody Moz then posted praise for both Matt Walker's drum playing, and Boz Boorer's tea making, before then posting some lyrics to a new Jesse Tobias song about a hairdresser in 'Pimlico'. The tweet has now gone! I am GUTTED that I didn't have the chance to copy these important tweets, but I have NO idea how to take a screen shot with my iphone! If anybody reading this happened to copy any of PM's tweets from last night, then PLEASE PLEASE post the content below. Thank you.
PM also tweeted something like, 'if you like crying into your gin, then you will love 'Istanbul'', which is reference to ANOTHER new song. WHY doesn't the miserable old s*d leave his account live, so I can copy the exact words, does he not realise this is a historical document? Does he even care? Aghhhhhhhh!
When I asked PM what the 'sad news' on TTY was all about, he informed me that I was overstepping the line, and that he had sacked people for less; either by "third person" or "postcard". I replied that at least the plus side to that, was that at least I could sell the postcard on ebay. PM trumped that, by saying that his Mum would just buy it back; adding that she has thousands, which she will sell posthumously. Genius! I bet she#s got carrier bags full of his famous hair too! You can picture it now, Morrissey's Mum huddled over her lap top, listing little packets of 'ACTUAL HAIR FROM MORRISSEY'S QUIFF. SMITHS. MEGA RARE. OWN A PIECE OF THE MOZZER. GENUINE SELLER. 99% POSITIVE FEEDBACK.' (She'll never forgive that one bas*ard who gave her negative feedback for that Meat is Murder Mayking promo. How was she to know it was a snide?)
A PIMLICO HAIRDRESSERS
PM also had some interaction with former Blue Rosers', Still.I.Fawn and DozyMires. He tried to find out from Still.I.Cling as to why she had started following him, but she claimed it was a mistake. Within seconds of the exchange, Still.I.Cringe's minder, RosyMires stepped in to make sure that PM left her alone. I think Dosy has always felt responsible for Stilli, ever since convincing her to leave the BRS on the back of 'HoustonGate'. I'm sure when the truth comes out, that Still.I.Clam will have NO regrets about believing Dosy, and having NOTHING to do with, what will one day be seen as, one of the most sensational experiences in the history of modern art! *Can you actually kick yourself to death? 'Worried'*
The main subject that I want to write about today, is the possibility of Morrissey headlining this year's Bestival on the Isle of Wight. As I wrote yesterday, I believe that this is part of a two legged European Cup tie (I'm sure there will be plenty more tour dates) between The Morrissey Band and The Blue Rose Society. Having said that, Loughton Lil, Edge and Ears have all ruled themselves out of the away leg, and MancLad wants to play with a bag on his head.... much as he forced to do whenever he takes the occasional lady back to his bedsit! Willow has also ruled herself out of travelling. I might be taking on The Morrissey Band alone. It's Brooklyn all over again!
MY SOLITARY BLUE ROSE IN BROOKLYN
I had written yesterday that it was Log Lady who had predicted that Morrissey and Marr would BOTH play Bestival this year, but somebody else had also previously mentioned it, and I had COMPLETELY forgotten. The reason I now know this is because this message was left on my blog yesterday by Fifi:
I replied to Fifi with this:
This morning, I slid over to page 825 of FTM, and found Fifi's first ever posting:
ROBIN HILL, NEWPORT ISLE OF WIGHT - SCENE OF BESTIVAL
So, it was FIFI who had mentioned Johnny Marr playing the Isle of Wight with Morrissey, which actually gives it 100% credibility.... not that Log Lady isn't credible! *Gulps hard*
Having discovered that it was Fifi who had posted the comment about M&M playing the Isle of Wight, I replied to her on my blog of yesterday with this:
And got this in reply, earlier today (during a tea break in the studio?):
FRANCE'S (EMOTIONAL) AIR RAID SYSTEM - OUR 'AIR' IS IN MORRISSEY'S THOUGHTS
Before I continue my ramblings about the Bestival, let me just remind both myself, and my readership of something.... MORRISSEY IS CURRENTLY RECORDING A BRAND NEW ALBUM IN FRANCE AND IS COMMUNICATING WITH US ON A DAILY BASIS. Pinch me mother. Harder.
Every year, Bestival has a theme to it, and this year's theme is 'Desert Island Disco'
JUST ONE QUESTION MARK REMAINS
Picture this scene.... The final song of the final night of a disco themed weekend is..... 'Death of a Disco Dancer' (Remember the DDD on Cocteau's drawing in the Chapel de Notre Dame). I must stop. Can one actually self combust with excitement? Morrissey and Marr playing DDD from Strangeways Here I Come for the first time EVER? Pinch me harder mother, pinch me harder.
The perfect 'last piece' to the whole jigsaw, would be for Morrissey to release his brand new album on September 7th (on the back of the publicity of him playing with Marr), and it entering the chart at Number 1 on September 14th, which ironically, would mark EXACTLY 3 years of Following The Mozziah. Jigsaw, jigsaw, jigsaw... or just a dreamer? One thing is for sure, as PM pointed out to me yesterday, he has changed my life.
THE DEATH OF A DISCO DANCER
ANY OTHER BUSINESS
Yesterday, Astraea was back putting up posters on the walls of the Twit Arms, including one of a 70 year old Catherine Deneuve. She is one SEXY lady. I wonder what went wrong for Mrs Whiskers Senior? It must have been all those years on the streets, it aged her prematurely.
CATHERINE DENEUVE (NOT MRS WHISKERS SENIOR) WITH, ER, A NAMED MAN!
SILVANA MANGANO AND TERENCE STAMP FROM PASOLINI'S TEOREMA
Willow and Astraea once again hogged the jukebox in The Arms yesterday, and their taste in music was, as ever, impeccable. The familiarity between Willow and Astraea is almost 'sisterly', and when Fifi is thrown in too, they are 'As one'. I cannot believe that these three don't know each other.... and I think I've changed my mind again, Astraea ISN'T Sterling, it IS Moz... I think! Oh, WHAT do I know?

And finally for today, I tweeted Joseph Jannides earlier today, to see if he had seen my blog of yesterday. Here is his reply:
He knows, you know! They ALL fu**ing know!
STOP PRESS: This has come flooding in within the last hour, whilst I have been busily typing:
