Day 999 - Never a third

Yesterday was a funny old day in this roller coaster of a journey, which ended with me having my friendship with Morrissey terminated yesterday evening. Here is the email I received at 7:28 pm:

Subject: Twatter
From: *********
To: ***
Date: 06/08/14 19:28:30

What on earth went through your mind Rat? You should have stayed under that pavilion, you obviously got sunstroke.

Didn't you think you were going to spark anger asking people to choose between me and Broken? 
When did I ask for such a thing?
All I said was I disliked all that Bieber nonsense and I did it in the privacy of the Arms' toilets. It was not supposed to come out of these filthy walls.
For your information, I never followed Broken and Broken never followed me. I was only getting Bieber images from retweets and other people having interest in Bieber.
So obviously your request got Broken angry and quite rightfully. Now he is attacking me and spreading rumours about me as if he knew me.
I do not have any interest in this person and never have. His addiction for all things Bieber I always found odd and inappropriate within the BRS but you cannot tell people what to do or what to think so I just plainly ignored him.
I enjoyed Parody's tweets and the MW site because they were made with talent and love. I do believe Broken was part of MW from the start and that cannot be taken away from him. I was never involved with it. I knew about it but never took part.
I told you many times before and I will say it one last time. I do not know Parody or Broken or anyone else in the BRS, not even you. My only account has always been Fifi's and nothing else.
I hate being thrown under the double decker bus and what happened today was highly unpleasant.
When I read Broken thought I was "Mum" and that you seemed to agree with it, it got me even angrier. Shall I remind you last time I closed my twitter account for a long period of time was after seeing Mum posting personal photos from Auntie M?
I am not Mum, I am not anyone else. I am sick of it.
I enjoyed my stay at the Arms and meeting the little charmers was a blessing but I am pissed (and not from drinking too much Veuve this time) so I am out.
This is our second disagreement. I usually give a second chance. Never a third.
You should keep writing your blog for Parody and Broken and the BRS members because that's what it's always been about and should continue as such. I should have never gotten involved.
Try not to see Morrissey behind every account that comes out of nowhere. Morrissey is NOT on Twitter. Not anymore anyway.


If I am honest, I always knew that it would end this way. I just knew. I'd had my warning after Day 898, and so yesterday was it. NOBODY gets a third chance with Morrissey.

Although our friendship has been severed, Morrissey instructed me to carry on with this blog, but I am unable to do that, my heart just wouldn't be in it, and anyway, with MorrisseysWorld now dead, FollowingTheMozziah has run it's course. I will carry on using my Blue Rose Society blog and twitter accounts to promote the BRS, but at Saturday's concert in Boston, yet another BRS member attended without seemingly making any attempt to get a rose to Morrissey, so one has to ask, what is the point? I also have no idea if Morrissey still has the appetite for the BRS. I guess only time will tell.

I cannot pretend that I'm not disappointed that everything has ended, but it has been a wonderful adventure for me, and I feel tremendously privileged to have been part of this phenomenon. I wonder if our story will ever be told?

And before I sign off for the final time, some final tidying up to do. Morrissey opened the concert in Boston by saying, "Vive La France", before launching into a tremendous rendition of The Queen is Dead:


Youtube clips have also emerged of Kick the Bride Down the Aisle, Meat is Murder and Asleep. All three songs are wonderful, wonderful songs, and this version of Asleep is just breath taking. Morrissey is at his absolute peak:









It has been reported in some places that one of Kristeen Young's band members announced on Facebook that the band had been "kicked off the Wayne Newton tour". I wonder if Moz was referred to as Wayne Newton because of the song Red Roses for a Blue Lady?


Some have claimed that The Queen is Dead being sung in Boston was a dig at Kristeen Young's departure, but Morrissey can clearly be seen making gestures towards the backdrop photo of Elizabeth II, and also Morrissey confirmed to me yesterday morning; within the confounds of those filthy walls, that the song was brought in because The Queen ate foie gras at the D-Day celebrations the other day. It is interesting however, that as reported on Day 994 of FTM, Parody Moz posted this tweet on Tuesday: "@KristeenYoung @TheRatsBack Kristeen, do join me in the Black Lodge. Bring a sponge and a rusty spanner, won't you?". Morrissey is NOT @Morrissey Parody, so his quote of TQID lyrics to Kristeen is just another coincidence.


I cannot leave without mentioning another tweet from Parody Moz from Tuesday. My thanks to @Heathercat222 for bringing it to my attention. It is a supposed quote from Morrissey's novel, although I doubt it actually is from the novel, after all, how could it be, Parody Moz is NOT Morrissey: "The day just churned into itself. A couple of houses in the distance were burning coal. A cemetery was taken over by urban urchins."

And so, it is time to leave. 999 days of Following The Mozziah, and I wouldn't change a single thing. I won't drag out my goodbyes, but I cannot go without saying a HUGE thank you to the author of MorrisseysWorld. You were groundbreaking.

I shall sign off with Morrissey singing Trouble Loves Me whilst wearing a blue rose.



Farewell
Rat

  1. I'm very sad to see you leave - you should continue following the Mozziah, regardless of silly fruits telling you that you should stop. THIS fruit kindly asks you to go on. I'd include a funny pun about fruitcakes at this point, but I'd be accused of being a homophobe by some humourless drama queen for sure. Please come to reason, please keep up the good work, and never forget your mission. The Blue Rose Society and their home blog are too important to sacrifice them for futile ego fights.

    1. Thank you kind fruit, but this truly is the end for FTM. It would be lovely if the BRS could blossom and grow, but most of the members just talk about it, and don't actually take Moz a rose. It reminds me of the People's Front of Judea... or were they the Popular Front?

      Delete
    2. I reckon that the members of the BRS not delivering a Blue Rose to Moz is not due to any lack of effort , but rather the nature of the situation. Between acquiring Blue Roses and getting close enough to offer them it is not an easy task. I will have two opportunities to make good on my intention of giving Moz my Blue Roses and hopefully will succeed.

  3. what happened yesterday was really shocking, why would you ask people to cho cho choose (yep ralph) between two people and then have the cheek to call girlwithout for pointing out that it was you who asked them to choose, I feel sorry for fifi and broken, both caught up in something that turned out to be not nice at all.. I myself will soon take leave of the interweb, there is just something I must do first, so to fifi and broken I can only say SORRY

    1. Romina, your comments have always been a pleasure to read. I am sorry that I mistook you for being involved in the whole MorrisseysWorld phenomenon, but you did seem to 'know' things, particularly when you first appeared on the scene. I 'reckon' I have accused virtually EVERYBODY of being involved at some stage, and ultimately that has led to my downfall. Enjoy your summer on the lovely beaches of Italy.

  5. Crazy and unpleasant stuff this weekend and I stayed out of it. I almost jumped in when you called GWO 'fucker' but as she didn't seem phased by it I left it. If this is the end then thanks for all your work over the last three years - it would never have taken the direction it did without your blog. Keep in touch, would be nice to meet you and Big Mick (well, you anyway) at a future Moz concert.

    1. JG, my comment to GWO was nothing more than playful banter; she called me a few names, I called her a few, neither of us were being spiteful. I have always enjoyed your comments and interactions, it is a shame you weren't around more. Let's see if the BRS can grow. Morrissey may not have had anything to do with MorrisseysWorld, but he has shown that he likes the idea of the roses.

    And YOU Fifi! I'm furious at you for leaving us. I know you are a flighty filly & flitting is your nature....but to leave us permanently?! Who the ****ing hell am I going to slap & annoy now?! I'll pine away. And people are only allowed 2 chances? Haven't you ever been given more than 2 chances? What a complete load of testicles!

      These are exactly my thoughts, Willow. A little bit of maturity and well-meaning cordiality would be enough to solve all problems. But this feels like some cheap soap opera, and the characters and their drama are not even mildly amusing. I've only just arrived, but I'll take my leave now. This is not what I had expected. I'm wishing the Blue Rose Society all the best, may it grow and flourish. Farewell, dear friends.

  13. Oi Princess, stop licking your furballs. So you messed up and there was a bit of upset, but hey where would the Twitterdilly Arms be without a bit of drama.
    There is a tour on you know and a new album to promote. To bail out now would just not be cricket. Will there be a new opener? If not, how is that time going to be filled? It’s a long wait from a 7.30 show kick-off to a 9.00 grand entrance. And we have a cliff-hanger at the end to look forward to.
    The BRS might not have got a rose on stage at Boston, but Morrissey did!!

  14. I have not been around her long , but would like to add that in light of the upset which recently occurred it should be noted that Rats has made an enormous emotional investment towards this journey to chronicle Morrissey's World'. So it is my hope that when things cool down maybe everyone can take a step back and decide if this outcome is what they really want. Moz stated in his message that he did not know Rats or anyone else in the BRS, therefore it is my hope he would extend his chances beyond three. I think Rat's passion for Morrissey and the blog are commendable and that missteps in this type of relationship are assured. Moreover, I feel that given the emotional investment Rats has put forth through out his journey he can be forgiven for any mistakes due to the nebulous nature of forming bonds within the electronic world. That being said I hope Moz would reconsider his decision. I do hope the blog continues, but in all honesty I do not expect much if Rats feels crushed by this unfortunate turn of events with his hero.

  23. Our Mozzer sent me this email today:

    "For Following The Mozziah Comments:

    I left the building long ago. Too much hatred and homophobia infested the corridors of the Blogs, if not the Blue Rose Society itself. My right hand man Broken, who wrote much of the blog and actually created at least 30% of the tweets sent in my name (though he'd never say so publicly) has been treated very poorly. Even comments supportive of him, asking why today's blog is about Fifi - a woman with no connection either to MW, OM or Morrissey as far as one can tell - rather than about the final sad departure of a brilliant wit, poet and friend, Broken, have been deleted. Broken will find new projects; sadly I shall not. The death of MorrisseysWorld has created a void which I doubt will ever be filled. Thank you to the friends we shared the journey with. Farewell from a strange and not particularly contented place. OM"

    To the author of this blog I want to thank you for your time and effort I'm just sorry we couldn't make it to a thousand days and we were very close. I put no blame whatsoever on you or anybody else, there is nothing to forgive. I have no words for how sad I feel, this situation is as hopeless as poor Bieber. I feel winded by this catastrophe, like a great big fist jabbed my guts. None of us deserved this and we definitely could have handled it better, that is my only regret
    I pray things can be reconciled behind the scenes and we might continue with the signs and theories and the genuine fun we had together.

    5. Dear Anon, both Fifi and Astraea brought Cocteau to the table. NO Morrissey fan has ever discussed this before: http://followingthemozziah.blogspot.co.uk/2013/12/day-828-story-of-mind.html & http://followingthemozziah.blogspot.co.uk/2013/12/day-830-jeane-genetjeane-cocteaujeane.html . How can anybody dispute the involvement of Cocteau in much more of Morrissey's work than anybody ever knew? Even Rosy Mires visited the Church of Notre Dame on the back of these revelations.... although she still failed to grasp the importance of it all. Fifi & Astraea's input to this whole story is HUGE.

      Delete
    6. I posted a picture of Cocteau's mural at the Notre Dame Church in the comments section here before that all started. I was throwing it in as a novelty. Fifi and Astraea ran with it to depths of dullness I couldn't have anticipated.

      Delete
    7. I suppose you are the clown who also claims to have come up with the idea of the blue rose and keeps warbling on about it.

      Delete
    8. No, I'm obviously not that person. I mentioned my post about the Cocteau mural not to claim credit for what I clearly think is an incredibly dull theory, but to question Rat's assertion that Fifi's insight is "HUGE". It isn't. Fifi's turned the delicate MorrisseysWorld satire into a cheap Graham Hancock book.

      Delete
    9. To answer first Anon's question, I don't think people thought Fifi was as entertaining as OM. They weren't ever comparing the two. But she seemed very approachable and non-threatening to some people. Unfortunately when tested, human beings inevitably fail.

      Delete
    10. I was confused about the how and why Fifi introduced us to Cocteau, even thought some of it contrived, that Moz was not connected. That's when I found out Nancy Sinatra used Cocteau footage for her 'Let Me Kiss You' video. So it was very possible for him to be aware--but was he? Things like this is what made MW, FTM &BRS fun. Along with the speculation of who really was behind the twitter names, I know Ratty still questions who I am and I at first thought he was Russell Brand(who I also thought was involved with MW). It wasn't just blogs, but mystery, excitement on who'd deliver the rose, would he sing that special song etc A fun experience and will be missed by all involved. Hope Moz and group beat the virus and after finishing the tour rest if needed, and that Ratty rethinks ending FTM, especially during the tour.

      Delete
    11. To elaborate, I'm not saying that Fifi is a bad person, or that she is unapproachable or threatening (!!!), or that her contributions didn't or shouldn't have value to some people (although I think most would agree that they were dragged on way beyond their charms).

      I'm saying that Fifi seems to directly pretend to be Morrissey in private emails with Rat, which Rat appears to believe (despite it being almost certainly untrue), and this belief is corrupting Rat's coverage of MW.

      MW began (and flourished for almost 3 years) as a delicate and at times very carefully crafted satire of modern values, human doubt, the creative process, ego, and much more besides. It was flooded with that same melancholic ironic awareness which tints every work of art I adore. While Fifi's contributions (and Rat's reactions to them) may present another element of mystery, they lack all of those qualities which made MW special. They read more like the pages of a David Icke forum thread than MW - which has its charms, certainly, but is that why we're here?

      The more people shift towards this particularly flimsy pseudo-mystical angle, the harder it becomes for MW to maintain the things which made it special. Fifi writes openly like an American, and probably is - fine, but she's pretending to be Morrissey. MW writes like a Brit who tries and fails to Americanise his British language in a limp attempt to carve out a new element to his own fragile identity. This is one of many beauties. Don't you people see this?

    12. not only do we see it, it is one of the reasons that i am bowing out, i have nothing against anyone on here, but all things need to end sometime

    13. Dear First Anon, if Rat believes that Fifi is Moz, then he can hardly start pretending that he doesn't now believe she is Moz, just to keep the blog going. This blog of Rat's became much more than just the MW story, it was a home for the BRS, where concerts etc could be discussed, away from Solow. Perhaps YOU could start a new blog, just following the exploits of MW, although there isn't much to write about at present.

    14. Dear Thirty third Anon,

      Where did I suggest that Rat's blog should focus on content from MW exclusively? The concert coverage is fine. I said that MW was written with a certain tone whose resonance originally brought us together and defined most BRS activity (including Rat's blog), and this tone is lacking in much of the recent Fifi-centric material.

      Additionally, I hinted that Rat's slant towards Fifi seems to be driven by his email contact with her, in which it's apparent that Fifi tells outright lies. The brief glimpses we've seen are completely uninspiring, intellectually, poetically, and creatively - and are more reminiscent of the emails between partners in a long-distance abusive relationship than a quaint little internet group.

      Yours,

      Sovereign Grand Anonymous General

    15. lol sovereign = genius, and true.

      MW and Broken = genius. Just look at the satire, the tweets they churned out - Wildean, poetic, lyrical, witty. Amazing. Fifi is a different thing. She's fun, she shimmers. But she's not in that league. She's a friend for BRSers, and that's good. But to have to chose beteen the last remaining author of MW and fifi... how low?

  30. Thanks Mr. Rat for all the time and love you put into the blog. I very much enjoyed reading it every evening. There is a community of very lovely folks here and I give you credit for creating a place for all of us to interact. Thanks also to Broken and Our Mozzer for their creation and writing of the wonderful MW blog. Remember we are all here for one main reason, our love of Morrissey. I think sometimes maybe that got lost in the shuffle. I also treasure my interactions with Fifi and Astraea. Two lovely individuals with marvelous musical tastes and mesmerizing shimmying abilities. They both broadened my musical horizons and the prism on how I view certain things in life. I hope this is not the end. If it is the end, remember with every ending there is always a beginning.

  31. I find it sadly ironic now that the real Astraea fled from human beings once she saw that there was no hope. I have watched this story continue to unfold today, and I too was disappointed in the extreme that I saw a supportive comment for Broken disappear, and that there was no other mention of him anywhere at all. The man who gave everyone else here a home first.

    Why?
    How?
    Is human nature so fickle? And is the collective memory really so short?

    Heartbreaking that there was so much sadness across the BRS today. I wished I could have taken some of the sadness here away, because there is already more than enough of it in the world.

    But everyone’s tears always appear to somehow come too late.

    Harrison has wise words for one so young. I’m sure many will agree with him that they hope this is not the end. He was right about everyone being here for one single reason. And he was right to end his comment on a positive note.

    The darkest hour is always before dawn. Or so it is said.

    And yet, there is a light that never goes out.

    Who can feel it? Now even?
    Who can see it?
    And who can touch it?

    It’s there. And it’s still real.

    Astraea

    1. I never really knew Broken, or Morrissey Parody, & my association with the BRS only began a few months ago. Therefore, perhaps I don't grasp the enormity of what MW achieved, or what it meant to many of the BRS. I was't aware that Broken's contribution to this whole experience was so great.

      My main source of information was always this blog, & through this I found the BRS & Fifi. Fifi was more of a friend & a playmate (whom I absolutely adored), rather than any mystical figure to me. To me she was (a wonderful) someone here to assist the BRS.

      I believe we should carry on as normal.The BRS remains & continues to suffer from delusions.

    1. This isn't a site about Morrissey, it's about manipulative little egos creating childish drama.

  33. In other news, the @pamelaanderson twitter account has now removed the Morrissey-Ⓜ from their profile.

  34. Thank you Mr Ratty for the time and effort you put into FTM, it was a unique meeting place for fans of Moz. I was surprised you didn't go for posting #1000. I am going to miss meeting with the friends I made here. I am hoping this is really not the end and soon all will be friends again.#BRS

    Get well wishes to Morrissey.
