Day 1216 - The Bees Knees

TRM (The real Morrissey) has announced that he will play a number of UK arena concerts in March, which is a great Winter tonic, and VERY unexpected. I had presumed that the first half of this year would see Moz concentrate on his novel, and Boz record his new solo album, but it just goes to prove that you can never predict the Moz. I wonder if Solomon will be back from his "compassionate leave"?

I am only able to get to one of the concerts, but hopefully there will be more to follow.
Morrissey UK Shows March 2015
Following the announcement of the concerts, Fifi appeared in The Twit Arms, and exchanged small talk with us very excited fans. Fifi also posted a Youtube video of TQID/Speedway in Paris, and drew reference to the moment when Morrissey shook hands with George Edge. I knew that George had received a handshake (as mentioned here on Day 1139 0f FTM) but what I didn't realise at the time, was that Morrissey had very obviously singled George out for the handshake. Many hands were held out for The Mozziah, but it was George that Moz dived in for.... and then a broad smirk appeared:


AT 7:38, MORRISSEY SINGLES GEORGE OUT FOR A HANDSHAKE & THEN SMIRKS

I have still not yet received Part 2 of the MorrisseysWorld parody piece, but there has been yet another 'coincidence' to add to our list. Yesterday, the online music blog, Louder Than War (LTW), published an interview with Morrissey. The interview was conducted by renown music writer Nina Antonia, but the emergence of the interview immediately reminded a number of us MorrisseysWorlders of a connection between MW and LTW. Jon the Con left this comment on FTM regarding the subject:

I notice Morrissey gave an interview to Louder Than War! Just like MW said he would!!!!!! Nothing to see here, just another coincidence... like the blue roses... the top 10 lists.... the live references... Christ I can't remember tham all now!!!


Class!!!!
Jon




Jon then added:

I think it was broken who tweeted a journo from louder and told him to approach moz, because moz would give them an interview

Remember louder than war then called MW "the M!"

You can't write this stuff!

NINA ANTONIA - INTERVIEW WITH MORRISSEY FOR LOUDER THAN WAR

Jon the Con is quite right about LTW referring to Parody Moz as 'M'. LTW's Editor-in-Chief, John Robb (@JohnRobb77), was invited on Boxing Day 2012  by Our Mozzer to interview him, to which Robb replied, "Interview would be great. Thanks M". And now he has his interview! That list of coincidences just keeps on growing.


JOHN ROBB - HE KNOWS!

Fifi again returned to The Arms at lunchtime today, for our weekly chart countdown. Fifi's presence brought in quite a crowd, but her presence also caused quite a distraction, especially when she lifted her sequinned dress to reveal her "bees knees"! Fifi also happened to mentioned that, "it is pretty sunny where I am", which as it has been pouring with rain across most of England today, would probably suggest that she is currently not in this country.


MORRISSEY EXPOSING HIS (BEES) KNEES

That will do for today. I shall now return to my task of trying to work out what film was being shown during the singing of I'm Not A Man in the Morrissey concerts of last year. Romina was pretty adamant that it was the Visconti/Delon/Cardinale film Rocco and his Brothers, but last night I watched Rocco (without subtitles), and it is NOT the film shown during INAM; although Rocco is however a fantastic film, and bizarrely there is no detraction caused by not understanding the dialogue.... rather like opera I guess.

  2. Marvelous chart, yet again. The LTW interview was quite a nice surprise, along with the UK tour announcement. So thrilled for everyone who will be able to attend and that Moz is able to tour again so soon. Now where is Part 2 of that parody...

  5. Broken told me OM is at his wit's end over the lack of attention for his parody writing and the abject lack of comments.

    Even the deluded dozen only left cursory thoughts, with a couple of exceptions.

    Sadly it now sounds like there won't be a part 2 or 3.

    Thank you all for a wonderful journey. It was fun to be a part of it all.

    I notice even the publication of an interview in an unlikely place (louder than war) as promised and predicted by MW/broken barely registers outside of FTM. It's a funny old world.

    I think Moz will wear a Bieber shirt soon. Most former MWers will shrug, "well, it's HARDLY that unexpected... he wore American Idol after all."

    If he poses with a blue rose on his next album sleeve: "Oh well he's done that many times... live... during Hollywood High... didn't you know? Nothing to do with that SILLY blog."

    1. ah, hi there Luke, it was inevitable that people would drift by the wayside, it is just human nature I'm afraid, deep down I'm sure OUR mozzer would have known this, if you speak with Broken again say hi for me, I will try to catch him in the chat tonight or over the weekend, hope you are well also..

    2. So very sorry to hear this - the parody writing is greatly appreciated and cherished by some of us. Will we never find out why Boz was asked to contribute lyrics for WPINOYB? Truly disappointed. A JB shirt, however, would be most exciting...
