"It has now been thirteen days since Morrissey's fallout with Kristeen Young, and there is still no sign that Morrissey is anything but broken. Hopefully BRS members will put aside their own feelings, and show support for BrokenMorrissey, but what I expect will happen, is that the comments section of this blog entry will fill with those saying "Broken said this, and Broken said that, and Broken's not very nice." Human nature."
I was of course right, but not only was the comments section filled with hatred aimed at a Broken Morrissey, it was also filled with a load of abuse for me, and the same old accusations that I am Broken, which therefore means that not only have I spent the last three years writing about myself, but it also means that for the whole of yesterday evening, when a Broken Morrissey was once again in The Twitterdilly Arms, I must have been posting all the tweets whilst I stood umpiring a cricket match.... in an area with no phone signal.
Anyway, before I report on the events of last night, here is a resume of the (phenomenal) story so far:
A blog and Twitter account called MorrisseysWorld were created by two characters known as Our Mozzer and BrokenMorrissey; both of whom I believe to be pessoa's of the former lead singer of the 80s pop group the Smiths, Morrissey. From MW came the Blue Rose Society (BRS), a society created by Our Mozzer for those fans of his who were interested in irony, comedy, mystery and Morrissey. Our Mozzer is currently away in the hills licking his wounds following yet another load of shit in the life of Morrissey. Currently propping up the bar of The Twitterdilly Arms; a make belief online drinking house run by the BRS, is the pessoa BrokenMorrissey (@Broken1andonly). Broken is, as he describes in his own words, "a fat c*nt with no life", who is also "a pointless phobic gay virgin in his late 30s", and "a human being in deep, deep shit"... and they are his good points. BrokenMorrissey is full of self hatred, loathing, and is in desperate need of being loved, especially in light of recent events in the life of Morrissey. Instead of receiving love and understanding, the Broken Morrissey is currently being prodded with a stick by a number of the regulars of The Twitterdilly Arms.
Here are Broken's comments from my blog entry of yesterday:
In response to this comment left by George Edge:
"for me the blue rose society was about acceptance,
love and friendship. it was not about hate. I don't care
*who* THAT person is/was and of their importance
to this whole *journey* ... I will not allow Willow to be
treated in such a vile manner ... and if you make excuses
for their behaviour then you are just as despicable as
they are. if this is what the Blue Rose Society represents,
then I no longer want to be a part of it. GOODBYE."
In response to this comment left by Father Brian:
"The Soil is falling.....
Morrissey Swords is Louder than Bombs.
Maybe in the next World?
Very sad that this entire great thing collapsed so quickly. Maybe something greater will come?
In response to this comment left by Willow:
"Thank you George. That means a lot to me. I'm not sure what I did to provoke Broken's attack yesterday, but I was genuinely extremely upset at the things he said about me. I don't care how much pain he is in, I'm not his whipping boy. If that makes me selfish & self-centred, then I am. It also mean I have self-respect, & won't be treated like shit by anyone for whatever reason."
"Are you sure you're not chuck? You demonstrate all the same traits. You're also very good at playing the victim.
Feel free to leave - there's the door."
"I have it from OM that if you ban the following, MW may return - as a members only club.
... and let there be peace"
And here are Broken's Twitter offering's from yesterday:
"I notice the pathetic individual called GOB is using the opportunity once again to claim she WASN'T int he wrong... so if you follow her, unfollow me, and never post on FTM again."
In response to @caterita2008 posting: "@Broken1and only GOB is a nice person and if you dont like her dont look at her": "Ban @caterita2008 from FTM. It's up to rat what he does. If he bans her, fine. if he doesn't, MW will never return."
"If there are only three MWers left after today, no matter. We will start again and open the blog only for those on the approved list."
"OM has signalled his intention to return, but his refusal to be part of such an unpleasant and compromised community."
So there we have it, the lack of compassion all round has led to another round of bannings from the BRS, although Romina (@caterita2008) is not on the above list, so I wait for clarification from the Broken Morrissey as to whether she is banned or not. I also wait for clarification of the length if the bans. Perhaps we might even get a BRS Bans Committee parody piece!
Yesterday I allowed the trolls to leave a load of anonymous abuse, today I won't. Today is the rebirth of the BRS. This society belongs to Morrissey, whether that be a happy Morrissey or a broken one, and if you don't show support when he needs support, then this is NOT the place for you. I shall sign off for today with an anonymous posting from yesterday that I actually quite liked. I have no idea if it is an original piece, perhaps the anon who wrote it could let me know:
Trouble is a poor substitute for great art.
Self harm alleviates pain in the heart.
Your best days are behind you,
Your worst are a waking fear.
The slow descent to darkness,
Soothed in the sewer with Rats.
A smile breaks across your ageing face,
Like the opening of an old wound.
*Goes back up the hill singing* It wasn't me either, I'm just his mate, he told me to stand here and watch the gate.
