We are officially in a lull, which is rather a pleasant place to be, but I cannot believe that we can get through the whole of 2014 without a single journalist eventually stumbling over us, and announcing to the world that Morrissey has been secretly communicating with his fans on the internet for three years.... or perhaps we can, especially as the vast majority of Morrissey's own fans can't see what is right in front of their own faces. Surely though, with a new album and tour coming, it is only a matter of time before we are found?
What I do fail to understand, is WHY Guardian journalist Kitty Empire DIDN'T follow up on her hunch of August 2011, when she (reviewing the concert at the London Palladium) wrote,
"It is a peculiarly solipsistic universe that Morrissey and his fans inhabit. The show in this plush old music hall theatre opens with the words "Welcome to my world". This is either a wry reference to Justin Bieber (who opens his shows with these words) or to a new blog, morrisseysworld.blogspot.com, written in a highly amusing parody of Morrissey's style. Is it him?"
(The whole piece can be read here: http://www.theguardian.com/music/2011/aug/14/morrissey-london-palladium-review)
Kitty has been the ONLY journalist to get close to discovering the truth, but WHY has she never followed it up? Is she lazy, or perhaps just not interested enough?

So, while Kitty, Morrissey's fans, and the rest of the outside world continue to go about their business, Morrissey continues to sip Veuve Clicquot in the Twitterdilly Arms, in the guise of a shimmying beauty called Fifi.
FIFI BATHING IN VEUVE IN THE TWITTERDILLY ARMS..... YES, I KNOW SHE'LL KILL ME FOR THIS PHOTO, THAT WOMAN DOES NOT LOOK LIKE A SHIMMYING BEAUTY...... PERHAPS THIS IS MORE FIFI LIKE:
HEATHER AND EARS HAVE HEARD THAT FIFI IS ON HER WAY TO THE TWIT ARMS, AND MAKE APPROPRIATE PREPARATIONS
Morrissey has released a statement on the True-To-You website, announcing that the new album, 'World Peace is None of Your Business', was recorded at...... La Fabrique Studios in France. Well there's a surprise. Didn't I first mention that in my blog on Day 855? Here is the TTY statement:
Parlophone (UK) to issue Vauxhall and I by Morrissey on June 2nd as re-mastered by Bill Inglot; Photograph of Morrissey at La Fabrique Studios in France where the forthcoming World Peace Is None Of Your Business has been recorded
I am presuming that Paula the dog is the chocolate labrador in the photo, or perhaps she is a completely different dog, who is holding Donnie's tripod? Either way, it is a lovely photo, which opens up a few questions, A) What is Moz holding in his hand? B) What make of plimsolLs is Moz wearing? C) Has Morr-ee-say been dieting? D) There is no D! E) Which Donnie took the photo?
The answer to question A) has been answered by Fifi in the Twitterdilly Arms, during a conversation with myself and Willow:
A MONT BLANC PEN, AS OFFERED TO PAULA THE DOG.... ACCORDING TO FIFI. (IT DOES LOOK VERY SIMILAR. LUCKY GUESS, I GUESS.)
This does of course throw up question A.i) WHY was Morrissey offering Paula a pen? Do the French not have chien chews?
I did ask Fifi if the plimsolL in question was a Fred Perry, but she avoided giving me a direct answer. Perhaps she doesn't want to give too much away, in case people start thinking that she might actually be Morrissey. As if people would EVER think that. Morrissey does look incredibly trim in the above photograph, which would tend to suggest he has been eating healthily in France. With regard to which Donnie took the photo, I presume that it is tour manager Donnie Knutson (as featured in my blog of yesterday), although I suppose it could be Donnie Osmond. No, wait, that's Donny. It has to be Knutson.
La Fabrique looks a magnificent place, and perhaps I had already been told that Morrissey was recording there. Maybe I was sworn to secrecy. There are many photos of La Fab on the internet:

Speculation continues as to the influence of the new Morrissey album title, 'World Peace is None of Your Business', and an anonymous comment left on my blog the other day, suggests that it is a reference to this saying from MorrisseysWorld: "Tony Blair, world peace is none of your business." There is now no way of knowing if there is any truth to this particular piece of anonymous speculation, as both the MorrisseysWorld blog and twitter feed have gone, but maybe there is something in it? Personally, I still think that Morrissey stumbled across that Abraham-Hicks link. No doubt somebody will ask him soon. Actually, I will ask him. It's about time FTM had another Moz interview. I shall email him with some questions, and if he answers, I will post them on my blog. NOBODY will believe it's from Moz, because I am just a hairy-backed bullshitter, so it will be an exclusive interview for the Blue Rose Society. If anybody has a question that they would like me to ask, please write it in the comment section.
Meanwhile, back in the Twitterdilly Arms, Fifi is the only Morrissey pessoa currently frequenting the world's Number 1 online Morrissey theme pub, with Parody Moz, Astraea, Broken and Greyer Girl nowhere to be seen. Somebody has opened an account in the name '@ParodyMorrissey' but this is NOTHING to do with '@MorrisseyParody', as '@MorrisseysMum' has been quick to point out. The reason that I haven't counted Mum as one of the pessoas, is because that particular account has become almost like an official Morrissey account, in a strange, round about way, and certainly doesn't interact with any of the BRS like the pessoas do. In fact, Mum tends to interact with '@Banjaxer' more than anybody else, although three days ago, Mum i.e. Morrissey, communicated with...... Mike Joyce!!!! It would appear that Joyce is fully aware that Mum is Moz:
This morning, Fifi posted a great Youtube link to the making of 'Initials BB' by Serge Gainsbourg. I have to admit, I never really understood how Gainsbourg managed to attract beautiful women such as Brigitte Bardot and Jane Birkin, but the more I see of him, the more I m understanding his attraction. He is just so...... French!

That will do for today, but I must make mention of a great interview that Julie Hamill has carried out with former Coronation Street actress Julie 'Hayley Cropper' Hesmondhalgh. I have been a bit hard on Ms Hamill in the past, only because I desperately want her to see that Morrissey is among us, but I really do like her interviews, and the latest one with Julie Hes is probably her best yet. Julie Hes comes across as a HUGE Moz fan, with lots of passion for the songs. When she describes her love of the line 'When you look at me, you actually see me' from All the Lazy Dykes, it brought a tear to my eye. I LOVE that line. Here is my favourite section of the interview:
JHam: Have you ever met Morrissey?

And finally Cyril, and finally Esther, Willow has announced that on March 19th, she will be 40. I owe an apology to Willow, because when she initially turned up in the Twitterdilly Arms, I was very suspicious of her; mainly because I am suspicious of anybody who just happens to stumble upon our quirky little group, but also because right from the word go, Willow established an unbelievable rapport with Morrissey. Most of us took a very long time to get over the 'Untouchable God' status of Moz, and in fact, it is only very recently that I have felt comfortable enough to call Morrissey a c*nt, but Willow was VERY relaxed in his company from the off. It led me to believe that Willow was perhaps Linder Sterling, but I now accept that she is not Linder, so I would like to apologise publicly, and wish Willow a happy 40th.
Incidentally, according to wiki and other sources on the internet, Linder Sterling was born in 1954, which means that she will be celebrating her 60th birthday this year, but there is NOWHERE on the internet, where it states Linder's birthdate. It would be great if members of the BRS could wish Linder a happy 60th, so can anybody tell me when her birthday is? Fifi theory? Maybe 'Mum' could tell us? Which reminds me, on International Women's Day last week, Mum posted this:
It is a reference to the Ludus (Linder) song 'Breaking The Rules, Little Girls': https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fNQKQmXyyac
