Day 1106 - Don't lose faith

On Wednesday January 9th 2013, I wrote my blog entry in a hotel room in Manhattan as I waited to set off to watch Morrissey play at the Tilles Center on Long Island. Within that blog entry, I wrote the following, "Disaster has struck, I can't find my toothbrush, I must have left it in Wimbledon. I have done what we all do in such circumstances, scrubbed my teeth with my index finger, but it's not the same. I shall venture out in a minute in search of a new one, after all, I can't arrive at the Tilles Center tonight and expect Moz to take the Blue Rose from my teeth with my breath smelling of last night's pasta!"

That evening, at the concert, Morrissey walked out on stage at the encore and said, "I've been looking for someone to share my toothbrush with, which is why I came here. All in vain."



On Wednesday May 7th 2014, as Morrissey prepared to start his new US tour in San Jose, I wrote a particularly witty blog entry which included a parody piece called 'This Is It', I also signed off my blog entry of that day by writing, "I don't think I've ever been so excited about a concert I'm not attending. If Moz sings either I Know it's Gonna Happen Someday or Trouble Loves Me, I might just abandon my son and his GCSEs, and catch the next flight to LA." The reason I had mentioned those two particular songs, is because they both have HUGE relevance to the Blue Rose Society, as documented within this blog of mine.

That evening, in San Jose, Morrissey sung BOTH I Know it's Gonna Happen Someday and Trouble Loves Me. Neither of the songs had been sung in years.






I have nothing more to add today except this:

"In the magical universe there are no coincidences and there are no accidents. Nothing happens unless someone wills it to happen." - William S. Burroughs

WILLIAM BURROUGHS WITH ALLEN GINSBERG & PATTI SMITH - NEW YORK 1977

*Goes off singing* But still I KNOW it's gonna happen someday, to you.....Please wait, don't lose faith

  2. Such beloved memories - these were very special times for the BRS. What will the new tour bring? Well I wonder...

  4. Re. the Tilles Centre, didn't he also mention Taylor Swift at that concert when OM referred to Manc and myself as Harry Styles and Taylor Swift in the chat before? Also in LA when Russel Brand introduced him as Lord Mudslide after we had a discussion about how the whole MW journey had been one big mudslide... Yes, if it only happened once or twice, I would agree that it was just coincidence but it has happened so many times!

    Still, if people want to call me insane - fine. Their loss!

  5. Got to love Morrissey! I share his frustration with Twitter and life because I recently crafted the best tweet of my entire Twitter career so far. Rat, I hope you don't mind me republishing it on your blog but I need to preserve it for posterity. It went like this:

    "You cannot find money that doesn't exist to pay off a deficit created by money that never existed".

    It was so good, I am thinking of retiring from Twitter while I am at the top of my game. It really is downhill from here. Sadly, it only got 5 retweets. Imagine what might have happened if Russell Brand or Richard & Judy had tweeted that... Shame.

    1. Manc, are you one of those people that took so many drugs in Manchester during the 'Madchester' days that all your sense of irony has been tragically washed from your synapses? So now, things like WWE (the homoerotic wrestling franchise) seem (a) authentic and (b) hilarious? Or were you unfortunate to be born without any irony at all? You know, like the Oasis album 'Heathen Chemistry'?

    2. once again Marcus, you have misjudged my sense of humour, as it can sometimes be a little weird, I 100% forgive you.. oh for the record, I have never ever done drugs, well, some mushrooms but that is it

    3. Manclad is cannier than some of you think. He's one of the true MWers. He realises alf button is about as part of MW as Ed Miliband. It's extraordinary and insulting that many of the others believe alf button is, in fact, the same person as MW - or perhaps even me!

      Delete
    4. Manclad isn't canny, he's a c***, but you are right about alf button, and I am currently writing a blog entry to put the record straight.

    5. Oh Manc, I haven't misjudged your sense of humour. It is what it is. Don't worry, it's not weird at all. You are stuck with it and I like you regardless of it. I was joking too... especially about the WWE and the washing of irony from one's synapses. However, I think you should write a piece about your experience on mushrooms. We need to know more about that.

      Broken, I know it upsets you that the new 'fake' Morrissey isn't as 'Morrisseyesque' as the old 'fake' Morrissey but the manner with which you then dismiss people as complete cretins for 'not seeing the genius' is childish and unrealistic given the absurd circumstances of this digital experiment - which has seen better times. But it's okay because there is always Manc Lad's forthcoming pamphlet: "Reflections on a Mushroom Trip in Manchester" to look forward to.

    6. Marcus - this 'digital experiment,' as you put it, is in similarly 'absurd circumstances' to your directorial career. Currently not much happening; living on former glories; even those weren't so glorious; nobody will remember either in thirty years. In my case three years wasted; in yours, longer?

    7. I don't know about that Broken... My feel good family friendly movie is doing better on Netflix than Netflix had ever imagined and want to sign it up for the next decade - as they roll out to the rest of Europe and the Far East. The BBC screen it for the first time next Autumn and ARTE have purchased it for Germany and France terrestrial TV. You never know... this sleeper hit might still be going strong many years after Iron Man 6 and Expendables 8 is forgotten. The trick is to make a film that isn't very fashionable. Classic stories don't really date. There's some trendy film makers in Shoreditch - who I am sure you admire - who should take note.

  6. I attended the Tilles Center show. I was front row all the way to the right. Moz caught sight of me holding up a blue rose and took my hand and sang directly into my eyes for a full minute, which seemed like a lifetime. I melted onto the floor in a sticky sweet puddle. He did not take the rose I offered. Later, during the encore, I attempted to deliver it to him via stage invasion but failed miserably as I was flung like a rag doll back into the crowd. Good times.

    1. You will Moz Fiend, one day! The ending a rag doll that sounded like a great time!

  7. Rat you now have no hope ever of receiving any further parody articles from OM, nor do you have any prospect of any 'blue rose' related coincidences. Why? Because you continue to pass off the witless fraud as OM.

    In some ways it's ironic that a piss-poor impersonator of a professional Morrissey impersonator has now stolen OM's thunder, but it's painful to witness.

    How can people such as Heather, Rat and Jjaz seriously believe that literary mole is the same person as OM?

    The tweets are woeful: a touch of clonking 'enigma'; all written in 12th grade style; no true irony; any wit simply borrowed from OM - and as derivative as it is familiar.

    You have destroyed BRS. I've told you this; OM has told you this. Yet you continue to do it. Why?

    This thing is now truly delusional as only one man - Menippus - can differentiate between the brilliance of MW and the mediocre farce that it has become in the hands of this latest Alf Button/StilMW/MorrisseysMum/Whateverhe'scallednow
