Day 1111 - PHENOMENAL

There is still no sign of a new MorrisseysWorld parody piece, and I have a feeling that there never was going to be one! Broken has not been seen in The Twitterdilly Arms since the early hours of Sunday morning, and there has also been no sign of Our Mozzer in The Arms, which is hardly surprising, as he no longer has an account.

The twitter account morrisseyparody, which I originally thought might be Our Mozzer, turned out to be a red herring, and it bears all the hallmarks of being in the hands of Banjaxer. Yesterday, Banjaxer was in a conversation with Terry Christian about Manchester renaming it's airport 'Morrissey Airport', when somebody by the name of Matt Naylor (@matt_naylor81) chipped into the conversation to say, "Morrissey unfortunately become (sic) a parody of himself, no longer cool, more of a gobshite". From nowhere, morrisseyparody leapt in to tweet to Matt Naybrain, "What do you mean?". The only way that morrisseyparody would have seen the tweet from Naybrain would have been if he followed him.... or was involved in a conversation with him using another account. I am the Columbo of MorrisseysWorld.



It is my suspicion that the morrisseyparody account is just a 'parody of a parody', with Morrissey instructing Banjaxer to try and act like a Parody Moz to see if any old person could pull it off. Banjaxer failed, and failed VERY quickly, which makes one ask, "HOW has somebody managed to get away with pretending to be Moz for THREE years without being found out?" There is NO ONE who could fool fans into believing that they were Morrissey, especially not for THREE years, and there is NO ONE with the ability to make Morrissey wear blue roses. There is only ONE Morrissey.

The twitter account belonging to Astraea has also gone. Astraea was last seen in The Arms in the early hours of yesterday morning, when she posted, "Tristesse" (sadness) followed three hours later by, "All as fake as plastic trees. ALL." Astraea had seemed in good spirits during the day on Sunday, playing Roxy Music's Editions of You, and posting pictures of BB, in celebration of her 80th birthday.

Perhaps MorrisseysWorld has ended. Just like that. And the only thing that remains is the BlueRoseSociety.

Astraea's old friend Fifi has returned to twitter, but I won't be fooled again into thinking Fifi has any sort of association with Morrissey. I have been far too gullible on this phenomenal MorrisseysWorld journey.





In other news, a new Morrissey interview has appeared on a Portuguese website, so I have attempted to translate it, and posted it here: Interview. There are a number of interesting points to come from the interview; firstly, Morrissey says, "life off stage is much quieter and even boring. I do nothing and see no one." This goes completely against what the likes of Rosy Mires & Co have been telling us MorrisseysWorlders for the past three years. They would have us believe that "Morrissey couldn't be behind MorrisseysWorld because he lives a very busy life". Peoples perceptions of Morrissey are quite amazing.

Morrissey also adds in the Portuguese interview that he has "two different lives." Only the two? My favourite part of the interview is when Morrissey discusses his fans. He uses the word "phenomenal" THREE times, which won't mean much to anybody else, but it is the word that I use on FTM whenever I refer to the MorrisseysWorld journey. I believe that Morrissey's use of the word "phenomenal" in the interview as a nod to FTM, but then again, there are a lot of things that I believe that very few others do.

Also in the interview, Morrissey talks about the section of his autobiography that mentions his relationship with Jake Walters. Morrissey explains that it wasn't a "homosexual" relationship, and goes on to add that "the world can not cope with the closeness between men". These words are so VERY true, and it is desperately sad that ANY relationship has to be defined with an adjective that includes the word "sex" in it. I have a relationship with my mother for example, but NOBODY feels the need to define that relationship with sex, so why is there a need for any relationship to be defined by sex? Actually, now I come to think about it, I have been called a mother f***er on a number of occasions, but that is by the by.




In other other news, Jesse Tobias has recently joined twitter as @ 8stitches9lives, and yesterday tweeted that he was on his way to Lisbon. The excitement builds.

And that's it.

  1. I had noticed the same points in the interview, Ratty. Because the English version we have is a translation from the Portugese, we don't know that he actually used the word 'phenomenal' though, do we? It's very frustrating not to be able to see Moz's original words.

    I dearly hope you're wrong about MW ending now. Astraea was actually tweeting some last night - I guess you missed her tweets. I hate to see that she has left us but it's a nice surprise to see that Fifi has returned. Au revoir, Astra - you will be missed.

  2. Where does this Fifi reside on Twitter? I don't believe I have ever had the pleasure of making her acquaintance. But I would like to.

  3. I knew it would be said that morrisseyparody was the work of Banjaxter after I read somewhere he likes to use random, fake locations on his Twitter account, just like the morrisseyparody account does.

  4. Oh Yes! Columbo had an eye for detail.

  5. Boz talked about the upcoming tour in the Soundtrack Apocalypse radio interview. He said that they had started to play some of the new songs in the States, that there were more to be done, and that he had homework to do.
    Hope that includes Neal Cassady. That would be phenomenal.

    2. Yes, let's get on with it Mr. Broken sir. We renounced "fraudulent" Alf on your behalf and we were promised a parody for our efforts of 200 comments. And here we still are, with nothing. It's starting to feel a bit pointless and I keep getting tangled up in the tumbleweeds around here. With all due respect sir, I have begun to believe we were hoodwinked. Wouldn't be the first time and probably won't be the last.

    3. Moz Fiend's comments are typical of so many MWers. He's not grateful for the Herculean efforts of OM (5 years of free parody writing to rival Dad's Army) and instead sees it as 'his right' because he posted a few comments on a blog article!

      With all due respect, don't ask anything of me. If you don't like it, don't come here. Nobody insists you post here and nobody minds if you don't.

  9. Thanks for the translate, Ratty.

  10. There comes a point when unremunerated parody writing ceases to be worth it. I think that point arrives when many of the audience gripe and moan to you and about you. The blog has gone now. The occasional article was the best you might hope for - and that's now hanging by a thread.

    When will they learn, Rat?

    1. They will NEVER learn Broken old son. I posted your last parody piece THREE times, and yet only the following people bothered to thank the authors or write anything about the piece at all: Myself, Heather, Fancy, EARS, Jaz, Poetic Morrissey, Astraea and GWO. My own parody writing also went unappreciated by the masses. MorrisseysWorld deserves are far bigger audience, but as Morrissey's fans are too blind to see, I fear the journey is over. Nothing last forever.

      Goodnight and thank you.

    2. Every time it slightly saddens me anew, because I know that these points have been made quite clearly to the audiences of both blogs before, and this has all been said numerous times on multiple previous occasions.

      And then every single time it baffles me anew, that any of this should even need to be so obviously pointed out at all.

      Chin up, Broken darling. And chest out, Rat.

      Look to me to lift your spirits. Neither of you owes anybody anything. And it really is as simple as that.

      Delete
  11. Dear Rat, I dare say this isn't your best entry but after the latest test of will trying to round up 200 comments. One needs the rest and also the time to write it and with a brand new tour beginning in 2 days time I don't think a delay is unexpected.
    BRAVA, my lovely star maiden Astraea she speaks volumes of truth when she says no one owes a thing to us, the audience, yet we still manage stamp our feet and cry. (Sorry, been listening to WP for days now)
