Day 909 - Rocket Lollies, Togger.... and the new Top 50 Chart.

Despite Morrissey's numerous run-ins with the NME, he must have awoken this morning with a little spring in his step, after all, it wasn't the smelly old writers/editors of the NME that have just voted him as the Number 1 Godlike Genius, it was the readers aka, the music buying public, aka the fans, aka the people who really matter. In fact, forget the spring in his step, Morrissey will be 'chuffed to buggery', 'Over the moon', 'pleased as punch'..... I'm struggling for the right words..... Hmm, let me put it in journalist's terms, 'Heaven knows, Morrissey won't be miserable now.' That's better!


MORRISSEY - HAPPY IN THE HAZE OF A GODLIKE HOUR (IS THAT A CODED WALL BEHIND?)


I think that I am right in believing, that the NME Godlike Genius Award is usually decided by the editors, so for the readers to have chosen Morrissey above Bowie, York, Dylan, McCartney etc is HUGE. It is a phenomenal achievement, and proves that I am writing about the right person. 2013 was a pretty shit year for Moz (except for him having me watch him in New York, oh, and his book selling a few copies), but 2014 is starting to look as though it will be better than any other, EVER.

 There is a new Number 1 LP coming out, there is a US tour, hopefully a UK tour, and Moz remains free to come and go on twitter without being harassed, because thanks to his own godlike genius, he created a parody character of himself, which nobody believes to be him. The PUBLIC Morrissey is bigger than ever, whilst the PRIVATE Morrissey who frequents the Twitterdilly Arms, is smaller than Little Jimmy Scott.

LITTLE JIMMY SCOTT

In fact, Morrissey's current pessoa's of choice, Fifi and Astraea (who are pretty much like twins), are hardly attracting any interest at all. Fifi has just 50 followers, and with the MorrisseysWorld blog now gone, I just don't see that anything could happen to change the current status. However much we Blue Rosers have shouted and screamed that Morrissey is on twitter, NOBODY ever believes us. I'm not actually sure what could possibly change the situation. It would be really interesting to see if anything would change if Moz wore a Justin Bieber shirt on stage, but I don't think it would. I actually don't think anything would change if Moz wore a Blue Rose. Goddamn it, he could even sing 'Trouble Loves Me' now, without Rosy Mires believing that Moz is really behind MorrisseysWorld.


FORMER BLUE ROSE MEMBER ROSY MIRES - WILL NEVER BELIEVE

And on the subject of Rosy Mires, she has informed me that her and another former BRS member, Still.I.Cling, will be attending the Moz concert in Flint, but they WON'T be taking BLUE ROSES, they plan to take BLUE WATERMELON! Still.I.Cling has even posted a picture. WHY? I just don't get it. Perhaps Moz will cancel Flint again.

STILL.I.CLING'S BLUE WATERMELON - WHY?

One Morrissey pessoa that does attract a bit of interest, is 'MorrisseysMum', who has recently changed her user name to MWPINOYB, which is of course a reference to MORRISSEY'S WORLD PEACE IS NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS..... actually, before I move on to write about Mum, I must quickly mention that, as would be expected, the internet is awash with references to Morrissey's new album title, but after my little blog article yesterday, FTM finds itself on Page 4 of google's searches, if you type in Morrissey World Peace is None of Your Business. My little blog comes ahead of LouderThanWar.Com, RollingStone.de, Rock.RapGenius.Com and even AfghanistanSun.Com. I've hit the big time.

Back to Mum.

On March 6th, Mum posted a Youtube clip of 'Frozen Britain' by James (which has resulted in it reaching Number 47 in our chart - see below), which I thought might be reference to Moz touring Britain this winter, but it appears that Mum may have tweeted it because Larry Gott of James inadvertently announced live on the radio, that Moz was to headline the Summer in the City festival in Manchester this July. Mum later tweeted, "So much fuss. In vain." followed by "TTY. TTY. TTY. Got it?", which presumably means, 'ignore all rumours, it is only true if it's on True to You.' There has thus far been NO TTY statement.

The following day, Mum issued this tweet:

As if having hanging around wasn't bad enough. Thinking of Barbara today. Mums are special.


That surely has to mean that Rustle Brand is currently with Moz in France, doesn't it?


TOGETHER IN FRANÇAIS?


On March 8th, the old Mancunian freelance hack, Kevin 'Banjaxer' Marrinan, tweeted a link to the Abraham-Hicks article that I wrote about yesterday, in connection with WORLD PEACE IS NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS, and Mum responded to it, tweeting, "And another pathway slips the sunlight. What does this mean?

Mam made another brief visit to twitter on Sunday, jumping to the defence of Johnny Marr. Johnny had tweeted that he had just got a Theremin (I think it must be a guitar!) and that he was learning all the old Smiths riffs on it. In response to JM's tweet, '@mark_meadows' tweeted, "You should never have left Johnny. As annoying as he was, he is now 10 times more famous." Mark Meadows didn't say who the "he" was, but Johnny replied to Meadows by tweeting, "Ignorant and confident. A dangerous combination." Unfortunately for Johnny, the 'ignorant' tweet was interpreted by another tweeter called '@AhmedKhogalix' to mean that JM was calling Morrissey 'ignorant and confident'. JM quickly responded to Ahmed by tweeting, "Wrong. Marr on Twitter Twit not Morrissey. How negative do people want to get? Stirring it as always." It was at this point that Mum joined in, tweeting to Johnny:


Ignore them Johnny. Get yourself a rocket lolly and have a game of togger.


Johnny didn't reply to Mum, but I am presuming that it is another in joke between Morrissey and Marr. We all know that Marr is keen on his togger (its an old Northern slang term for football), but has Johnny ever publicly announced his love for Rocket Lollies? Answers on a postcard please.




Mum was back again yesterday, responding to this tweeted photo by Banjaxer:

TIM BOOTH OF JAMES WITH MORRISSEY

Mum tweeted:

Ah yes, the 'missing hand' picture.

Mum then followed the tweet up with:

One man not clapping.

YOU'VE GOT TO HAND IT TO MOZ, HE'S A FUNNY BLOKE!

That will do for today. I don't know whether it is worth me continuing to try and convince Rosy Mires and Still.I.Cling, to are they a lost cause? It would be a shame for them to miss the opportunity of taking a BLUE ROSE for Moz. One person who WILL take Moz a BLUE ROSE, is Moz Fiend, who has posted this picture of her ticket for the concert in Atlantic City:

I am SO jealous of all those going to see The Moz, but I just cannot go to the US for this tour, I am a responsible parent, and it is a very important exam year. I just have to hope that the 'Frozen Britain' DOES mean a winter tour of the UK. Time, as ever.

  5. If I had the money I would be across the pond like a shot to see Moz. I guess it will have to be You Tube instead.

    Another great chart, glad to see Kirsty made it in with As Long As You Hold Me - such a special song. And of course delighted to see the beautiful Francoise there too.

    2. Kirsty's lyrics have so much humour & feeling in them, similar to Morrissey's in many ways. If anyone here is unfamiliar with her music, I can't recommend it highly enough.

  6. Thank you very much Rat, for the chart and for reporting the interesting exchange of tweets, ascusual I miss a lot of interesting things. Have a nice evening with your family, ciao!
    p. s. where could be Morrissey hand in the pic? Usually when an man's hand disappears could be hidden in a pocket, under a shirt, or a skirt or is in a little box like in the Addams Family, but morrissey's hand is truly a mistery!

  7. Another marvelous Top 50!! So many splendid selections. I noticed just getting in at #50 is "San Francisco". I very much like the song. I wouldn't wear flowers in my hair but seriously the city is just breathtaking. I was there once and will never forget it. I'm glad to see my favorite Moz song "You Have Killed Me" there also. The lovely Willow said "Moz fans(especially the BRS members) have the best taste in music, film and literature" and she is absolutely correct!

  8. It's certainly no surprise that Moz was voted Godlike Genius, we all know he deserves that title more than anyone else on the planet. And even if he sang Trouble while wearing a Bieber shirt and a blue rose, the doubters would still say it's just a coincidence, that he has no idea of the significance of these things.

    Sorry to hear that Russell's mother has been diagnosed with breast cancer - my thoughts are with her and her family.

  9. Rockets are also called bomb pops here and they are usually red, white & blue. Glad to hear Moz was voted god like, I just learned of the honor 1-2 years ago. It is a great honor for him. I liked your top 50 again and that you included the Marlene Dietrich song I like and quite a few others I like. Thank you for the recent parody it must have taken you quite a bit of time. I will have to admit that at first I thought it was about the singer Prince as it was recently revealed that he was a wiz at ping-pong. Hope you have a good week. We've had warm weather the last few days, but now they say snow is on it's way again.

  10. Doesn't anyone remember? MW once said, "Tony Blair, world peace is none of your business."

    I'm amazed nobody remembers this witty comment!

    1. Oh, anon. You have certainly put Pusskins amongst the pigeons with that little gem of a statement, and I'm not sure that a little piece of moistened bread will help the pigeons survive.

      Where did 'Our Mozzer' write this 'Blair' comment, was it on the MorrisseysWorld blog, or on twitter? Does anybody else remember it?
