Day 1055

Yesterday, as I spread my arms along the back of an ageing wooden bench, whilst sat in glorious sunshine watching cricket in a rural Somerset retreat, I felt truly alive. With no internet access in the remote setting of North Perrott, the only other things to occupy my mind other than the cricket, were the church bells that peeled every half hour, and the adjacent field of Jersey cows lazily chewing their grass. Bliss.

Today I find myself back at work, and also back into the gloomy depths of cyber space. How and why have so many of us allowed ourselves to spend SO much time online, NOT living? I wonder if one day things will go full circle, and we will abandon our laptops, mobile phones and other devices, and realise that life is far too short not to grasp every last second of it? Somehow I doubt it. The problem is, most of the human race wouldn't know how to go about living life to the full, so everybody makes do with actually living in little bite size chunks, whilst the vast majority of our time is wasted on the mundane, and our lives are spent purely existing.

NORTH PERROTT CRICKET GROUND IN SOMERSET

So, as I once again return to cyberspace, the only thing that is of any interest, is MorrisseysWorld. Whilst I was away at the weekend, I missed two or three of Our Mozzer's visits to The Twitterdilly Arms, and as the @stillMozsworld account has once again been closed, it has been difficult to piece together the conversations. It doesn't help that my own twitter account, @TheRatsBack, is also now closed. I closed it last Friday, having been finally worn down by all the haters. I only joined twitter in the first place because I was so excited at having discovered that my hero, Morrissey, was on there, but what started out as great excitement has led to my persecution, with people not only calling me a liar on a daily basis, but I have also had my identity published against my will, I have had my occupation and place of residence revealed against my will, I have been called a racist, I have been reported to the Police, I have had somebody contact their solicitor about me, and I have even received a death threat.... all because I write a blog about Morrissey! You can only laugh things off for so long.

Here are some of OM's highlights from the weekend:

"Is Manchester still there? Or has it been turned into a multi-storey car park? Do Iron Bridges still exist?"

"Most of us are alive but are any of us living? Me? I died in 1997."

"Wod Pace Is Non f Your iness Blue Rose."

Regarding Wham!: "The Smiths would never have worked with an exclamation point. Just like Therapy?"

"The name of the florist will be Florrissey." (Note - I wrote on Friday's blog entry how OM had said he should open a florists.)

"It will be a side business. I will sell my albums there as well. God knows people couldn't find where to buy it this time."

In response to @tabootlb asking, "@stillMozsWorld will you be selling Blue ROSES?": "Out back. Not on display."

In response to @AmIMoving2Fast asking, "@stillMozsWorld Will you offer discounts for those who bought WPINOYB?": "Yes of course. I will offer price increases for those who bought Messenger."

In response to @AmIMoving2Fast asking, "@stillMozsWorld Are you eagerly looking forward to Playland?": "I just can't wait for the singing. Truly remarkable."

In response to @AmIMoving2Fast asking, "Did you write the lyrics for him?": "I've never been more insulted."

And whilst on the subject of Johnny Marr, he played a concert on Saturday at The Wedgewood Rooms, and although I had purchased tickets, I didn't go, instead giving the tickets to my 16 year old nephew, who had "the best night ever" as he watched JM perform Panic, Big Mouth, Please Please Please, There is a Light and How Soon Is Now. Oh to be 16 again. Oh to have that "best night ever" feeling. Oh to one day see Morrissey play a concert in England again......

..... and on the subject of Morrissey concerts, the following has been posted on TTY:

2 August 2014
Hot Press
Morrissey has been interviewed by Ireland's Hot Press magazine. It is his only interview for World Peace Is None Of Your Business, and it is available on August 7th (Thursday).
Morrissey is finalising plans for concerts in Athens (Greece), Istanbul (Turkey) and Rome (Italy), and he is hoping to include Bucharest (Romania) and Budapest (Hungary). A concert at Dublin's 02 has been finalised.


THE O2 IN DUBLIN - MORRISSEY CONCERT "FINALISED"


It is great news that Morrissey is feeling well enough to 'get back out there', and also great news that he has given an interview. This Thursday is NOT looking quite so "pathetic".

Highlights Continued:

"@Vinyl_Boutique Are you stocking World Peace?" (I have also asked this question, but received no reply. I would really like to buy my vinyl copy of WPINOYB from Boz's record shop. Surely he must get a stock of them in soon? Surely?)

"@antanddec Which one of you is scrubbing Simon's floor today?"

"Boz has not yet made my morning Gin and Tonic. Can't get the staff these days."

"The Commonwealth games? The Queen has all the wealth and we are all just common."

"It has been my goal for a while to be on the same level as the Kardashians. i have not sunk low enough yet."

"My grammar and spelling has been off recently. Please blame personal circumstances."

"Boz has finally made my G&T. Now he is asleep at my side. It has worn him out, poor love."

Unfortunately, that's all I've managed to retrieve. There was far more said, including OM apparently reporting that he doesn't wear knickers!

In other news, another of my persecutors, journalist Rob Pollard, has written a rather good article about Morrissey's solo career being better than his Smiths career. Pollard has also taken to twitter to say, "Morrissey read my piece and said it was "absolutely beautiful"." Pollard must be overjoyed at receiving such praise. It's a shame he wasn't quite so complimentary himself about Morrissey's work on MorrisseysWorld.

God, I HATE Mondays!

    1. You are all following and reading and enabling a blog and a person who is breaking the law! A person who is hurting another human being. A person who is using another persons name without permission in a hurtful and spiteful way. In a poisoned and pointed cesspit of hatred. How can you as decent human beings support this? How can you sit back and watch while another hurts someone and do nothing about it? Do none of you have a conscience. I am not asking the author to do anything out of the ordinary. I am not asking him to stop blogging. To stop breathing, to stop living. I am simply asking him not to use MY name. Not only is the author not complying to my wishes, he is deliberately ignoring me and continuing to hurt me. Can you stand by and watch this abuse? If you saw someone hurting another person in the street would you walk on by? Is this the type of people you are? Are you the type of people who do hurtful and spiteful things, without even giving an explanation? Is it Rats God giving right as a blogger to be able to hurt people as he so wishes. To use their name in a barbaric and neanderthal way, as to hurt another person. To torture that person mentally by refusing to answer there plea's for their OWN name to be removed from a blog they do not wish it to appear. I would have thought better of most of you. Sadly i don't know many of you at all, in any shape or way. So making assumptions about your character is all i can do. And while you continue to stand by and allow Rat to treat another human being this way. To hurt me and my family is despicable. Do none of you even have a voice. Can none of you see beyond Morrissey and realise this is not about Morrissey and actually say to yourself "Yes, this person is a human being and he has the right to have his name removed from this blog should he wish. So how about it Rat, why don't you just remove his name?", "What's stopping you?", "If you won't answer him, then maybe you will answer us?" - Will none of you say that? Will none of you question why he will not remove my name when it holds no significance to the blog? Is this just wishful thinking on my part to assume you are all decent human beings with a conscience? Or do you fully support Rat breaking the law and inflicting pain on another?

  2. Indeed it is wonderful news that Morrissey will be taking to the stage again.
    I saw some disparaging remarks about BRS on twitter this morning. I can't help but find it hurtful.

    Anyway, it was nice to briefly bump into OM last night in the Arms. He was as sharp & witty as always.
    Stay strong Rats & thanks for blogging.

  3. Cheers for todays blog Rat....
    I've just read day 534, taking me a while... But I read every comment too (except the spammers).
    The San Diego concert- day 533- with Morrissey wearing the camouflage shirt..... This was the day after you posted a picture with JB wearing a camouflage shirt himself, and also Morrisseys comments on an interview about heterosexual men killing other men in wars.....
    That's never just coincidence, it actually shows how clever and funny Morrissey is!

  4. Will you take my name off of this blog please! Will you actually listen to me??? You have not been reported to the police for writing a blog about Moz! Only the deluded could possibly think this. If you had been reported to the police for simply writing a blog about Moz i think you would find that it would be me who would be charged with wasting police time! You were reported to the police because you have my name on this blog without my permission and when asked to remove it, simply ignore me and will not remove it! Why is my name on here and why won't you remove it?

  5. I wish for my name to be removed from this blog. I will continue to ask you to remove my blog, every day until it is removed. I will continue to liaise with the police in order to secure your conviction in the event that you do not remove my name from this blog. I will continue every day to post here to ask that you remove my name. I will continue to tweet your twitter account, should you or should you not decide to activate it again. I will continue to tweet every account i think is you and i will continue to tweet every account i think has links to you or knows you. I will continue to tweet any "Morrissey" account, "Real" or "Imagined" or "Parody" every day asking that you remove me. I will not stop until my name is off of this blog or that you have been convicted and forced to remove my name or that the blog is shut down. If my name is removed then i will never grace this blog again, nor will i tweet you or tweet anyone associated with you. I have asked you repeatedly to remove my name from this blog, i have asked you politely, respectfully and i got nowhere. I then gave you a warning and a deadline to remove my name from this blog and that failure to reply would result in me going to the police and you still did not have the courtesy to even furnish me with a reply. I then reminded you the day before i went to the police in order for your mental capabilities to snap into action and for you to see some sense and remove my name. Still - Silence. Then you deactivated your twitter account. I imagine hoping i would give in and also very handily come here and cry and whinge about persecution when i have never persecuted you and in 3 years have barely even tweeted you. All i've asked is for you to remove my name from this blog. Still on the day of the deadline my name was still on this blog and alas i was forced into contacting the authorities. And i gave the police full screenshot printouts of yours and i's conversations and full screenshot printouts of this blog. Especially the pointed and maliced reason for having my name on this blog. The police confirmed to me that you had commited an offence by breaking the Communications Act 1995 and are now investigating. But they also asked me to get in touch with and try and reason with you and appeal to the fact that you are a sound and functioning sensible human being (how wrong were they?) and ask you once again to remove my name. Since then i have contacted you and those close to you to ask you repeatedly to remove my name from this blog! And still..... Silence, nothing.... but far away whining on this blog about how you've been reported to the police for "simply writing a blog about Moz" (Not true), how you've been persecuted (perhaps you have, but certainly not by me) and how it is God awful and a nightmare that people have used YOUR name, have posted YOUR name without permission, whilst you are doing the exact same thing to me. This smacks of hypocrisy Rat. And all this simply because you will not remove MY name from your blog. At least can you tell me why it is that you are refusing to remove my name from this Blog? This blog is called "Following The Mozziah" and is about you following Morrissey and your efforts to track him down online. What does that have to do with me? Why would your readers be at all interested in me? Or is this just your pointed way of having your readers see my name and send me abuse (Cont.)

  6. Is that why you won't remove me? Is that why you tell lies about me? "I really laid into you" - Oh really? How did i do that. I sent a tweet to the "Morrissey" account and then you decided to bombard me with tweets. All i did was reply - hardly laying into you is it Ratty, but then again you like half truth's and lies don't you? So can you tell me at all why you wish to deactivate your twitter account, stay away from your beloved "Mozziah", be the object of a police investigation when all it would have took is two minutes of your time to simply remove my name from your blog like i asked. And none of the previous would have had to have taken place. I do not wish to upset you Rat. I do not wish for you to stop blogging. You and i do not agree on everything, but it is not about that. It is not about Morrissey, its not about you deactivating a twitter account. It is only about my name appearing on this blog, without my permission and without my consent. I do not want my name on this blog, not now or ever. I cannot state this fact any more clearly. Now will you please (pretty please all wrapped up in bows) remove my name from this blog. Or am i going to have to continue bombarding this blog and other social media with messages like this every single day until my name is removed. And also continue visiting the police to take this case onto the maximum conclusion. Or will you be quite simply a nice human being and acquiesce to the wishes of another (whose right it is not to have his name banded anywhere they do not wish) and remove my name from this blog??????

  10. Why won't you remove my name Rat? What possible reason could you have for refusing to remove my name? My name has no significance to this blog, so why won't you just take it down? What is your agenda Rat? Why leave it on your blog when you can easily remove it? Can you answer these questions to me or anyone? Or are you waiting to answer them to the police? I'd love to hear your reasons. I'd also love to hear how you can know you are hurting another human being and not care? How does one do that Rat? Do you enjoy it? Is that the reason? Do you like having power? Do you like being spiteful? Does it turn you on knowing that you are ruining someone else's life? Do you even have a conscience? Or do Rodents not have one?

  11. Thrilled by the news of the upcoming concerts and OM's hint on twitter yesterday that more is in store for the UK. I loved his idea of leading into Staircase on the tour with Sheila Take a Bow - a perfect pairing.

  12. Glad to hear of the new concerts and the visits on twitter. Hope this means OM is healing and getting his strength back. Nice to read you had a peaceful weekend in the sun, we too had the sun, but it was interspersed with thunderstorms, so one could not actually plan anything. Have a good week. Try to ignore the trolls. '
