Day 930 - Balanced Views, Blue Roses, Vinyl Boutique.... and Patti Smith hits the Top of the Chart.

Banjaxer's balanced view on 'MorrisseysWorld' will hopefully help unite all of the Morrissey fans who rather ridiculously fell out over it. There will always be the deluded dozen who are absolutely CONVINCED that Morrissey was behind it all, and there will no doubt always be a large number of people who will NEVER believe Morrissey ever had anything to do with any of it, not because of any 'evidence', but simply because 'Morrissey would NEVER do such a thing'. Somewhere in between, will sit the vast majority who, having weighed EVERYTHING up, will conclude, as Banjaxer has, that "at the very least, Morrissey plays along."

Morrissey issued FOUR denials regarding his involvement in MorrisseysWorld, which either meant, he was being "mischievous" or he changed his mind about MorrisseysWorld, and decided to play along with it because he thought it was fun. One thing is for sure, Morrissey DEFINITELY likes the idea of a Blue Rose Society, because the only flowers that Moz has accepted on stage in the last three years have been ROSES; which included receiving and then WEARING a BLUE ROSE on at least TWO occasions, once at Radio City, and once at Hollywood High:

 
MORRISSEY TAKES A BLUE ROSE AND WEARS IT IN HIS POCKET


MORRISSEY AGAIN TAKES A BLUE ROSE AND WEARS IT IN HIS POCKET

The nuts and bolts of Morrissey's involvement in MorrisseysWorld are now irrelevant, it has come and gone, and we have all moved on. Those of us who witnessed either all or some of the whole MW 'thing' will take from it whatever we choose to take. It would however, be great if the message of the Blue Rose Society spreads. To see Morrissey concerts awash with roses would be some sight, and would be reminiscent of the good old days, where flowers ruled the waves.



It has been all quiet on the Moz front in the Twitterdilly Arms these past few days. I know that he is around, because of a certain comment that was posted on my blog the other day, but he is choosing not to let himself get sucked in to the pub chatter. I too have managed to drag myself away for a while, but all of us tend to dip a toe in from time to time. Astraea popped in very briefly yesterday to post a couple of pictures of Alain Delon, and 'Mum' has also popped in, although God only knows which of the three Mum's we are getting! Mum has changed her user name to Jane F Elgee, who as we all know, was Oscar Wilde's mum. Am I the only one getting a feeling that one of the users of the '@MorrisseysMum' account might actually be..... Morrissey's mum? It can't be, it just can't! Kevin, are we allowed to know? Mum, is that YOU?


MORRISSEY'S MUM..... SURELY NOT?

AND ONE FROM ME


Boz Boorer has tweeted to say that he and his wife Lyn are going to open a record shop in Camden called Vinyl Boutique. Boz could be the next Richard Branson, after all, that's how Branson started, but I would guess that it's more likely that Lyn will be the brains of the outfit, especially with Boz away so much. The store will be at 230/231 Camden Lock Village Market NW 1. Let's face it, we have ALL dreamt of owning our own record shop, so good for the Boorers (Boorer's? Boorers'?..... Grocer Rat strikes again).


VINYL BOUTIQUE - CAMDEN..... COMING SOON

And finally, Morrissey's concert at the Santa Ana Observatory has sold out in 1 minute! The anticipation builds.

  2. I agree, Harps. I'm at a loss for words to adequately describe how deeply this breathtaking song touches me, which is true for other Moz songs on today's chart. Songs like this are the reason we are here. Ultimately, no matter how we as fans view MW, we are all here to express our adoration and appreciation for Morrissey, and that alone should unite us. As Rats said, it would be beautiful to see upcoming concerts filled with roses as a sign of appreciation. Thanks for a great blog and chart today, Ratty and Fluffy.

  3. I do hope the fact that I posted the "I've Changed My Plea To Guilty" video will more than atone for my posting of the Duran Duran video. Soz.

  5. My hunch is that a certain iconic pop star, bon vivant consumer of luxury chocolates and fine wines, adept raconteur, amateur online disc jokey, novelist and sage for the new millennium has infiltrated the deluded circles of the BRS using a series of cunning disguises.
