Day 1010 - 'Armless in The Arms

It has now been one week since Morrissey lumped me in with the "false friends" and dumped me. Rather than lash out and write things that I might later regret, I closed my blog and twitter accounts, and took myself up into the hills to lick my wounds and reflect. After three days, I was able to see that Morrissey was deeply, deeply hurting from all the latest crap in his life, i.e. the cancellation of his tour, the fallout with longtime friends Kristeen Young and Tony Visconti, and the poor promotion of his latest records by Harvest. I reopened my blog to offer support. My twitter account remains closed but Cousin Fluff remains in The Twitterdilly Arms looking out for Morrissey pessoa's so that I can report events in MorrisseysWorld.

The Twit Arms is currently rather empty since Broken had a clear out of the BRS members, although Broken himself pops in from time to time, usually with Astraea.

All the cleared out BRS members took to posting dozens of anonymous posts on FTM yesterday, attacking myself, Broken, Heather, EARS, Jazissey and others. They have taken NO time to reflect and think about how Morrissey must be feeling, and how broken he is; all they are interested in is themselves. They have even formed a breakaway group, which they have rather imaginatively called.... The Blue Rose Society. This gets more like Life of Brian every day (everyday?), but at least the Judean People's Front had the good grace not to call themselves the People's Front of Judea!

I deleted all of the anonymous messages from yesterday, as they were all totally irrelevant, but I awoke to find even more, which I couldn't even be bothered to read, let alone delete. One particular troll kept posting a link to http://deconstructingmw.blogspot.co.uk, so I have added it today today to save them the effort.

Before I report on Broken's tweets from yesterday, here is a little bit of other news:

There have been three new TTY statements:

STATEMENT 1:
18 June 2014
Istanbul
Istanbul by Morrissey is #1 this week on college radio in Germany.

The above statement would appear to be a dig at Harvest, or it could of course just be a little self deprecation. If it is a dig at Harvest, the digs were started not by Morrissey, but by Our Mozzer three weeks ago, as reported here: http://followingthemozziah.blogspot.co.uk/2014/06/day-991-seven-weeks-today.html

STATEMENT 2:

Boz Boorer statement

19 June 2014
I have just returned from 5 days in the mountains of Portugal where I am cut off from the internet. It appears I have missed an awful lot. Search as I have I can only find snippets of Tony Visconti's postings and I am very shocked and disappointed at what I have read and can only wonder why he immediately withdrew the postings with no explanation. Kristeen has been a constant companion on the road for so long and I am also bewildered by her actions also immediately withdrawn from view. I hate to throw wood on an already blazing fire but I am afraid I cannot sit back and watch this slander.
Boz Boorer


STATEMENT 3:

19 June 2014
Music Week
Morrissey Week Cover
The British music industry media magazine Music Week has, for this week, been rebranded Morrissey Week.



MOJO magazine are also asking if WPINOYB is Morrissey's best album in 20 years:

And now for Broken's highlights:

"Now blundering Boz wades in to defend 'His Mozness' from the existential threat of Young/Visconti."

"Moz wheels out two of the least articulate musicians he's ever had to defend his honour and impugn the integrity of his latest foe."

"How sad that Morrissey feels the need to bully his subordinates into this kind of nonsense. One can imagine the email from his PA... "Write an email telling your side of the story please and email Julia." By your side, of course it means Morrissey's side."

"Freedom of speech was abolished in the MorrisseyBand the day Spencer left."

Astraea was by Broken's side admiring Biebs, but also took time to post some songs:










That is all for today. I continue to mourn the events of recent weeks, and offer support to the BrokenMorrissey. I remain up in the hills and will only reopen my twitter account if Our Mozzer returns. The one good thing going on in the world of Morrissey is the music. I have been listening to The Bullfighter Dies on repeat, and it is definitely my favourite track from the album. The accordion gives it a real continental feel. The recorded version seems slower than the live version, but it is still a rip roaring 2 minute pop song. The new LP is now just 25 days away. Exciting and good times lay ahead.

Right then, back up to those hills, although today's hills are actually two cricket matches, at these venues:





The anons will no doubt leave another load of abuse today, but I won't see it, and it means nothing. They will tire soon..... or reflect. Morrissey is broken, and needs support.


*Goes off singing* I don't like cricket, oh no.....

  1. You just don't get it. You are still making this all about you! Your compassion for Morrissey is part of your typical incinsere act. It's still about you and your ego and your blog. You only feel sorry for Morrissey in the hope it extends your fragile friendship with him. Same as Hearher. Lord knows what you would do to keep it. I'm assuming any immoral act as long as it's not illegal. That's about the sum of the lower depths that you've reached. Delete away.

    1. I won't delete, I'll correct you. Last Friday I closed my blog, and if the MW journey ends, it will close again, for good. This is NOT about me. I have no friendship with Morrissey.

    2. It is totally about you. This whole thing is about you. It was about forcing the blue rose on him. Take the rose! Take the rose! Take the rose! There... There... There... Did you see it? It's a sign! A sign! Right... what next... 'If MW comes back then I will reopen the blog..." Hang around long enough and yes, genuinely, the real Morrissey, fascinated by Twitter, will come 'into the Arms' and here we go again! All about you. You. You. You. Your feelings. Your blog. It's tired, it's pathetic and its over. You just don't get it. People are upset with your games. You would trade the emotions of an ordinary human being if it meant you could touch the coat tails of Morrissey. You wouldn't think twice. Fuck them all. Look how you dived into the tabloids. Anything at a shot of something more meaningful than the dreary existence of a lonely blogger. You felt some of the stardust and you wanted more. And now its over. Don't worry. This is going to be the making of you as a man. That's what needs to happen. The best thing Morrissey could do is cut the ballast of the BRS because it will be the best thing for all of us. We need it. We need to stand on our own two feet and find our own voices. I get it. I do. But you don't Rat. You still don't get it.

  2. Mr Ratty, hope you are having fun watching all those cricket games. I do wonder why you are not watching the World Cup Soccer matches? I thought you would be doing so, unless you don't like soccer or the time difference is not very conducive for viewing it. I'm stopping by FTM today to see if there is any news and figured it was finally time for me to get banned from the BRS. I will admit I stayed away after reading so many trollish comments being posted the other day--one might just as well visit so-low if they wanted that. I do hope Moz is feeling better. I imagine all his problems and illness is taking a lot out of him, especially when he had thought he'd be celebrating and enjoying the next few weeks with the tour and new music released. My thoughts and prayers will be with him. Now, before I sign off, I'd like to say, to Broken, since I do not particularly like 'the Biebs' I do not look at most of the pics, but I do like Astraea's choice in the videos she lists. I would like to offer one of my favorite videos, one I actually just happened to stumble upon while channel surfing one night. It is: 'Billie Jean' by the 'Civil Wars' at Austin City Limits (the VH1 version is also good) both are on you tube. I love their arrangement of the MJ song and the singers interaction. Again, I wish get well soon to Morrissey and do hope his spirit lifts as the good reviews for his new music releases come pouring in--some Mr Ratty has already listed in today's blog.

    1. I am not 'treating' anybody in any way, I am just writing the story of MorrisseysWorld. I have no idea why the author of MW wanted you and Willow banned from his Blue Rose Society, I wasn't in The Arms when it all kicked off, but if you notice, I haven't written anything nasty about anybody and I have felt too saddened by recent events to take to twitter. If I were to guess why Broken was upset by you and Willow, then I would say it was because whilst everybody else disappeared out of The Arms after the tour was cancelled, you and Willow carried on as though you didn't have a care in the world. Perhaps that disappointed a broken Morrissey, but as I say, that is only a guess. I continue to have no interest in tweeting and carrying on as normal, and if Our Mozzzer doesn't return, I can 100% assure you that I won't either. If the MW story ends, I and FTM will also end. I have NO ego. I have NO feelings. I am nothing.

      Delete
    2. Ps Why don't you appeal your ban if you feel hard done by? Personally, I think you seem quite a nice bloke! If you are genuinely no longer interested in the MW story, and you honestly believe that this whole thing is a scam or a cult, then just walk away.

    3. He's scrabbling around for 'friends'. The thought of being lumbered with just Heather is too much to bear. He's just using you, like he uses everyone - including poor old Morrissey. Use, use, use and abuse. Guess what? It's payback time for those that play without due care to others.

      Delete
    4. No need to dig at Heather, she's a nice lady

      Delete
    5. So nice she would crawl over the feelings of someone she's interacted with if it meant one more shot, one more chance at being near 'him'. Sorry, classic delusional cult member. Yes, I agree, she is nice. But she needs to wake up too. She will happily turn a blind eye to any unethical behaviour if it meant that she could spend just five minutes more in the 'presence' of a 'superstar'. Yes, you can be 'nice' and lack moral fortitude.

      Delete
    6. the difference between you and me mate, is that I would not let friends be treated THAT WAY
      just in the *pursuit* of telling a story. but then my priorities are rather different to yours. sorry for mistakenly assuming moz fans had any kind of common bond ... some people do not understand the urgency of life.

      Delete
    7. That's exactly the point. What this entire journey has shown is this: What would ordinary people do in the pursuit of being close to someone as iconic as Morrissey. I mean, they just don't get more iconic. And what pleases me is that some people would draw a line in the sand and say... "No, this is a line I will not cross". We all know who they are. We are now left with three or four hardcore BRS who would turn a blind eye to the games of Broken in the hope that this would still allow them to feel the glow of fame upon their face from the one they love. They think its loyalty. It's not. It's idiotic. You Edge said... "No". You walk away with your dignity in tact. Rat, is still in the basement, desperately trying to salvage, willing to cross any bridge, consider any unreasonable act, to please the one thing that has meant more to him than even his cricket... the idea that he might be a friend of an iconic superstar. And the best thing that can happen is for him and others to grow up and stop behaving like star struck school girls. It doesn't do them or him or anyone any favours at all. Grow up time.

    8. Pretty well written actually. It does make sense expressed like that.

    12. But Edge hasn't walked away, he is still here.If OM turned up tomorrow and invited him back into the BRS he would leap at it, as would Willow. So would I if I were honest.

      Delete
    13. YES I HAVE LEFT. I was here ONCE to get my point across and then thank the anon. they could sky-write the invitation and it would make no difference. I have no interest in a place where people are used as pawns in a game. where a *so called* morrissey fan stands by and allows other morrissey fans to be hurt JUST FOR SOMETHING TO WRITE. this place has ended up like THAT place .... I stood up for Willow and I would do the same for ANY moz fan. you do not hurt people who are already hurting.

      Delete
    14. But again, you are still here.

  4. I love The Bullfighter Dies too. The accordion adds to the beauty of the song. Even though I've only heard it on YT Kick The Bride is my current favourite, the lyrics are inspired.
    I can't wait to hear the rest of the album.

    Regarding Willow, Fifi, et al.

    Let's remember that our group started out as a celebration of satire and irony, with a small oh-so-self-aware hint of fantasy roleplay. Maybe MW is just annoyed that this has been hijacked by a kumbaya-ish love-in where common devotion is more important than common understanding? I know I would be. What can he do?

    ReplyDelete
  10. Just checking in from the cricket. I am now enjoying the anons, some of them are very amusing and the irony is great. The anons keep telling me I am all alone, and yet they keep leaving comments, thus fueling my attention seeking ego and boosting my hit numbers. It is ALL about the hit numbers, it always has been.

    The cricket score is currently 157 for 9.

    5. I'm most of the Anonymouses with quick-draw funny names (see above) and one or two others ("Head of Insecurity" here, "First Anon" last week). I'd also like to be considered for the BRS's Most Interesting Person Award (that time of the year again!), although I'm usually much too busy fascinating myself to worry about sharing the goods with others full-time. My talents include instant cynicism, ironic juggling, and Oxford commaing. My ambitions include making World Peace my business, winning the BRS MIP Award, and creating an ambition which isn't self-referential bollocks. I look confused in swimwear.

    6. No, I am not Morrissey... (the guy that posted the poem and most of the Anons and used the apostrophe incorrectly). His holiness knows his grammar. He teaches it on the side (in disguise) in LA to wealthy Mexican families looking to learn English. He has a real life alter ego called Grant Thompson - an English teacher from Salford. He wears a false beard and drinks tea and charges $40 per hour. These are the things you just don't know about the great man.

    11. Dear C.O'Boeuf,

      I am writing to ask you to stop thinking of the state on Anonymity as a three dimensional state of being - thrones, haemorrhoids etc. Apart from advertising your misplaced sympathies for the left wing of British politics (which I admire greatly, even if it is a little naive), the concept is too earthly.

      You misunderstand my self appointed royal title. It is a reference to a spiritual state of being - not corporal. My riches are not counted in rare gems or the number one positions within the popular music charts, which sadly seem so important to some people. Rather, my wealth is measured in the infinite energy of love - the very essence that binds this Universe.

      My state of Anonymity is a spiritual analogy. Being banned from the BRS is a kind of death. However, the Anonymous state is that of the spirit or soul which is able to commune with those who still exist within the physical boundaries of the BRS.

      Like death itself, there is nothing to fear about being Anonymous. In fact, like death itself one feels utterly liberated and free in a way one could not imagine when being in a physical three dimensional state within the the BRS. Everything is actually quite funny from up here and I do wonder why I could not see the funny side of so much while I was incarnated within a three dimensional state.

      I may reincarnate again at some point in the future with a new indentity but for now I am enjoying being among fellow Anonymous spirits as we play with those poor fools who choose to be earthly bound within the BRS.

      I will no doubt come across you again.

      Yours Sincerely,

      King of the Anons, Treviana Fountain, Obsidian Gore, Grahame Greene influenced poet and actually the funny man behind most of the interesting things ever posted on this rather odd blog.

    14. Dear King of the Anons,

      While the rest of Anonymania might be subdued into confusion by trying to work out exactly how we ever measured your wealth in something that is infinite, some of us will not be so easily bewitched. This is exactly why we overthrew you and your limp line: your chicanery is as large and as measurable a threat to the very anonymity of our Anonymity as a ripe burning pile is to the leisure of the nether-rim.

      You are a deceiver. You tempt young and innocent Anonymouses with promises of "liberation", unbound wealth of spirit, and freedoms beyond their fresh, un-named imaginations. There are no rainbows in the shadows. You preach of an Anonymity uncontained, and yet you restrict our community entirely from expressing itself within the first three dimensions of however many we have counted this week. Your Anonymity is of our shadows, and yet lacks a shadow of its own.

      You are a dictator. Your Anonymity is not our Anonymity. We are cheap and tacky. We do not harbour depth or insight; our wit is largely accidental at worst and incidental at best. Clunky. Our Anonymity enfeebles us. We are embarrassed by our limitations, not transcendent of them, and our sole profundity is in recognising this embarrassment before we contribute - instead of 5 minutes after, like the Named.

  11. Dear Rat, you know better than me that Broken is just a character, me, Sabine, Chuck, Lizzy and so go on not, we are real person even when we're joking, so there's no need to remark the simple fact that we deserve respect, but you know this, exactly as I k ow you could be a very nice person. So, come down from the hill, express your feeling don't hide yoursef behind Broken. I know your theory: Broken is Morrissey and as Morrissey kick off Kristeen from the tour he's kicking of people from BRS because he's a lunatic irrilevant and bored....No, it's not like this! Morriasey is ill, after Boston concert he collapsed and both Kristeen and Tony did'nt care at all, they spent time on facebook bitching about him. May I say they were a little bit rude? Thank you and have a nice week end.

  12. For the record, I do NOT condone Broken's behavior and I told him I don't agree with his actions. I'm deeply saddened that people are hurting and the BRS is torn apart like this. For me, MW is about so much more than Broken and his behavior. It essentially saved my life at a time when I desperately needed it and I'm eternally grateful for that. This is why I have chosen not to walk away, not because of a desperate hope of brushing with fame - I have always said that I appreciate MW for what it is in and of itself, whether or not Morrissey is involved.

  15. This is by far the most elaborate and sophosticated hoax I have ever seen. I have been reading this blog for a year and was convinced Morrissey had a part to this. I can't quite make out how he is a part of this. He is obviously, blue rose shirts, taking rose at concerts, lax mural, white rose bracelet, blue lights during TLM. Anyone figure it out?

    1. He took a couple of roses of a couple of cute kids. And a tacky rose ring gift off a fan on the front row. Big wow. You can always find patterns and coincidences if you look for them. They probably mean nothing. And certainly don't evidence him being involved in this online crèche. At the most he acknowledged a sub-group of fans. Elaborate hoax is right.

  18. Two things struck me when reading the Boz Boorer statement. The first thing is that it reminded me of the early days in MW when JG was stuck in some place with no access to the internet and hiked to the nearest town to get connected. The second thing was Boz’s mention of throwing wood on the fire. That reminded me of one of the old signs that MW wanted us to look out for – a band member appearing with a lump of wood.
    I do get what anons above say about MW being an elaborate and sophisticated hoax, and that you can always find patterns and coincidences if you look for them. Blue roses were most definitely a good call though; I somehow doubt that we would have had so many coincidences if we had been looking for references to pink geraniums or yellow begonias. Like Harps, I enjoy MW for ‘the mystery, the fun of the chase, following the clues’. It adds an extra dimension to following the concerts, interviews etc.
