Day 1049 - Morrissey returns to Twitter and announces a January Tour

Morrissey made a return to Twitter yesterday evening with a brand new account, but was soon chased away by the same old haters who just REFUSE to believe in anything to do with MorrisseysWorld. Many of the haters once again took the easy option of pointing the finger of suspicion at ME, with even the likes of Willow (@Smashingblouse7), who was once a 'full on' member of the Blue Rose Society, mockingly tweeting to say, "Ratty is hearing voices again."

Another tweeter called @Sean_Classic (formerly @Tony_Lemesmer who has been mentioned a few times before on FTM) also laid into me saying, "Rat loves talking to himself whilst pretending to be Morrissey, to sad people who actually believe it." He continued, "@TheRatsBack Each time you actually believe that the REAL Moz is actually on twitter & that there IS such a thing as the so-called "Blue Rose Society" you look stupider!" So, according to Sean, I am both pretending to be Morrissey, and stupid for believing that Morrissey is on twitter! HOW does that work? You couldn't make this up!


Here are Morrissey's (@stillMozsworld) highlights from his two hours on Twitter yesterday evening. He posted 37 tweets in total, and amassed 23 followers. I only discovered that Moz had returned to twitter because Astraea (@FadingGoldLeaf) retweeted the first few @stillmozsworld tweets, which gives the account far more authenticity than an official Twitter tick!:

"I see my album has limped down the charts. Dread Sheeran still tops it. Just who is buying THAT?"

(World Peace fell to Number 12 on Sunday's chart)

"I appear to have as many people following me as bought my latest album. Forever rejected."

In response to @Sean_Classic tweeting, "@stillMozsworld Start working with decent composers then  & not a composer as bad as Dread Sheeran called Jesse Tobias!!!": "And what would YOU know?"

In response to @Sean_Classic tweeting, "@stillMozsworld I know that Jesse Tobias is the worst composer & guitarist that's ever been": "You've clearly never heard Electronic."

In response to @tabootlb tweeting, "@stillMozsworld I bought the deluxe album": "The delux is all you need. My 'favourite' track is on the deluxe."

"@edsheeran You are an odious oaf"

In response to @MozzeriansATW asking, "@stillMozsworld Why a new account?": "The old one had dragged me down. Plus I realised Boy George was tweeting me. This is a stain on my name."

"I run the risk of being a forgotten human. Do you even remember who I am?"

In response to @caterita2008 tweeting, "@stillMozsworld Surely not a post man": "The only thing I deliver is grief."

"Twitter recommends I follow the MET police? Do they know nothing about me? Plus my guess is the MET are already following me."

"I have missed your faces. Something tells me I will see them again soon."

In response to me asking, "@stillMozsworld How soon? Will November spawn a World Peace tour?": "January. My dear Rat. A single first. If Harvest can summon the intelligence."

In response to me asking, "@stillMozsworld A NEW song? A PROPER promoted single?": "Promoted all over Universities."

In response to me saying, "@stillMozsworld Especially the German colleges": "I will need to brush up on my Nietzsche. Tonight I am nothing like Ubermensch."

"Does the Blue Rose Society exists anymore? Or has it been cast aside like my new LP."

"I make people wish they were dead just by existing"

"I am totally exhausted from life. I bid you farewell."

"I am not a man. I won't play the role assigned to me."

"Men are great repressors. Of women and animals."

At this point, worn down by a continued attack by @Sean_Classic, Morrissey took his leave and closed the account, tweeting the following:

"@Sean_Classic Good Riddance to False Friends"

"I am sorry. My re-appearance appears to have brought out the worst in people."

The hatred continued this morning on twitter, with @RFerdenzi, @Sean_Classic, @SusieSue132 and @Jake_cfc all laying into me, accusing me of being a liar and a fantasist. Ferdenzi tweeted, "@Sean_Classic Don't worry, this is NOT Morrissey! We all know who it really is." Ferdenzi also informed @SusieSue132, "We all know who's behind all of these fake Morrissey accounts!"

Because I have followed and documented the whole phenomenal MorrisseysWorld journey, people have become confused, and in their confusion they have decided that I must be the person behind MorrisseysWorld. If I had never started writing FollowingTheMozziah, I believe that MW would have taken a completely different course, and by now it may well have been HUGE. I am hampering MorrisseysWorld, so it is time for me to step away. I shall continue to write my observations on this blog, but I will no longer make my observations public. I am NOT a part of the story, I am just recording events. Perhaps when a January tour is announced, the likes of Willow, Denzi and Classic Sean will realise they were wrong, but I expect they will just add it to that ever growing list of coincidences.

Goodbye to the public, hello to my own private world.

Astraea posted this excellent comment to my last blog entry. Her observation on Richard and Judy Madeley is spot on:

Richard's auxiliary problem is that he is another one of exactly what this world doesn't need any more of – an insipid man. His primary problem, is of course, that grating old battle-axe Judy. A grating battle-axe wearing a 40DDD cup, a smile, and with Chardonnay for blood is still... an incredibly grating old battle-axe, in a typically predictable disguise.

This couple must have prompted the need for the invention of the phrase 'ball and chain'. And to think that people aspire to be like them, and to have their relationship. No wonder this world is on a fast track to hell.

Listen to them speak and and flubber for five minutes, and watch and listen as your own brain cells instantly fizzle away, never to be found or revived again. Thank you, but no.

Best to take MW as tonic instead. Along with some aromatic bitters, the body will be strengthened, the psyche awoken, and the humour fortified.

It's a wild, WILD world out there.

As for the one-liners being as funny as the main dialogue –

'As this fatal thought emerges, he feels a sense of anguish deep within his Barrett's oesophagus'

L O L

Like I said before – it’s a wild, wild world.

You have to grab your coat, thrust your hands deep into your pockets, face the blustery oncoming wind, and simply heave forth.

  1. Bah! Missed that completely, such a shame, particularly if the haters were out in force. The last thing Our Mozzer needs is haters. Hope you stick around Rat - none of this would have been half as much fun without your blog, nor as informative.

    Fingers crossed for a tour - if the haters stay away we should find it easier to get tickets anyway.

    And, by the way, it was MorrisseysWorld that first drew attention (or at least MY attention) to FTM.

    1. Ironically, the haters will still go to the concerts.... and will then moan that the songs are shit, or that Jesse is shit, or that the set list is shit, whilst anybody who dares say that the actually LIKE what Morrissey does, will be accused of fawning. Life is a Pigsty.

    2. Indeed - as the Twitterdilly Arms is demolished we few can sit in the privy out the back and reminisce. You can have the jukebox since you have all the singles. As long as you make the final lease payments - or we'll just say it went down with the pub.

  2. Sadly I missed it all too, being on holiday and mostly away from the internet this week. At least there's a new blog to enjoy. So thankful MW is still around in some form as a much-needed tonic in this wild world. I echo JG in saying that I hope you stay with us, Rats.

  3. I missed it three! Didn't even get a chance to follow, and my timeline feels so empty now from a recent unfollow spree. I can't imagine how either rat or our mozzer feel, I only imagine its frustrating. I really am curious about that "favourite" song that was mentioned.
    My favourites did poorly on The Twit charts.
    Kiss at 6!
    Drag at 16!
    Julie at 21!
    And last but not least
    I'm waiting here number 29!!
    Disappointment is a constant companion.

  5. As you suggest to many newcomers that they should read from the beginning, so they can make their own mind up; I have been.
    Currently up to day 481.
    When you say FTM will become a private blog I assume I'll no longer have access???

    1. All the old postings will remain. So, Kerry, what do you think having read 481 days, is MorrisseysWorld Morrissey?

      Delete
    2. Well. Where do I start with out getting confused....
      Firstly, I think that there are just far too many coincidences, to just be coincidence.
      The list is quite extensive up to day 481.
      The theory could be that Morrissey is simply "playing along", but from the evidence you have documented to include announcements that were first posted on twitter or MW blog; that have THEN been announced officially on TTY, can only mean that Morrissey or his "people" are behind MW blog and the MW twitter account (which was still active and tweeting on day 481).

      Secondly, as it's obvious that Morrissey is aware of MW blog (if he isn't actually behind it), proven by the TTY statements denying that he is MW blog, would he allow someone else, who is nothing to do with him carry on with all this?
      I mean some of the opinions expressed, pictures posted etc are very to the bone, if they weren't his opinions/humour would he allow it to run? It has upset "fans" in the past, surely if it was someone pretending to be him he would make it close down immediately?
      Look how much he despises So-Low, look how he will take on the NME etc.

      Thirdly, I think accounts have been set up on twitter to throw people off the scent and stop this getting huge.
      Morrissey seems to want to interact with fans/BRS members that are willing to think "outside the box", think for themselves and not just to believe everything they are told.
      The TTY statements reflect this, most people would read these and instantly believed what they've read without bothering to question (I'm embarrassed to admit I did with the first two, but the third statement made me curious and got me thinking)!
      There seems to be a pattern of OM interacting regularly with 20 or so BRS members and as the regular BRS members that interact with him grow to say 35 plus, a new twitter account arrives throwing doubt on the whole phenomenon and hey presto about 10/15 BRS members stop believing/interacting.
      I personally think this happens as Morrissey would only want BRS members that are interacting with him to be people that are willing to follow their own minds and work out for themselves the truth. I guess as the following gets bigger some people must slip through the net that aren't particularly what he is looking for. He knows those people will be easy to manipulate and hey presto they go and he is left with a nice small audience and fan base to interact with, again?

      Please forgive me grammar/punctuation etc etc, it's 23.49!

    3. TUT at the last bit, please forgive MY!!!

  6. I usually miss the Twitter stuff (it usually all happens after my bed time), so some of us need FTM to keep up and stay part of the BRS. You can have a private blog and allow people with invited accounts still read and respond.

  7. As always, I missed the tweets. I've noticed that when I do catch them it is on a weekend or Moz is in a time zone closer to mine. I am very grateful Mr Ratty, that you keep us updated on all things Moz. I do not understand all the hate and complaints that come from 'supposedly' fans. I was lucky enough to get into MW and FTM at the beginning, but if one would, as Kerry Richards suggests, read the history of BRS and MW, they would see there are too many coincidences that show OM is aware of all that has gone on. Whether he is MW himself, or if it is a friend(s) behind it, that has been kept a mystery. I look at the journey of MW, FTM, twitter & more as just an enjoyable way of following Moz--a fun fan club vs those that just give you a few pics, an occasional newsletter, and yearly fees. Finishing, I would like to stress, to those who just tweet to express hate and dislikes, please refrain from it. If it bothers one so much, quit following. OM does not need to read this. And if you are true fans, try to remember why you are. For me it is because his music has given me so much enjoyment over the years and helped me through good times and bad. So what if you do not like his band. As long as he does is what counts. Have a good week Ratty, as for me, I am not sure if I will make it through tomorrow, as I promised I would watch "Sharknado 1 & 2" on TV with my 8 yo grandson.. well we will have popcorn and other treats.

  8. Its a crazy notion to believe that Rat is behind MW. Rat - don't allow those who mock to clip your wings, that goes for you too, Our Mozzer .
    Fair play to you Kerry, for bothering to read the evidence. An interesting response.
