Day 1281 - "Get on the f***ing stage"

My last blog entry received the following heart warming and encouraging message from Broken:

"Jesus Christ. Stop waffling and get on the f***ing stage. Deliver your god damned blue rose. Stop being a bunch of utterly pathetic wasters. How f***ing difficult is it for some grown adults to show some wit, conviction and commitment? You've been following BRS for 5 years. Now get on the f***ing stage and grow a pair.

Best Wishes for Easter."

As I pointed out to Broken, if Morrissey started playing some smaller, more intimate venues instead of the ridiculous aircraft hangers where you need a taxi to get from the audience to the stage, then perhaps someone could get up and deliver a rose! Still, nice of Broken to send Easter wishes.

Astra's only contribution to the last FTM entry was to comment on the ludicrously photoshopped photo of Justin Bieber, stating, "JB's lunchbox is not photoshopped. Please. Don't make me laugh!"

I forgot to mention in my last blog entry that there are a few new additions to Morrissey's pre-concert video footage. I have already written about Gertrude Stein's Matisse, but Morrissey has also added Visage's Fade to Grey in homage to the recently deceased Steve Strange, and there is also a video of Apossibly by The Apex Theory, who are an LA band. I would imagine that this particular song was chosen because it was from the time when the band were fronted by former System Of A Down member Ontronik Khachaturian .The inclusion of this song into the pre-concert videos has bewildered a number of Moz fans, but it is well documented that Morrissey was a fan of System OAD, and I wouldn't be surprised if old Mozzer has a bit of a crush on Khachaturian..... it's the lips!





A snippet regarding "ethics" from the James Cagney film, Jimmy the Gent is also featured on the pre-concert videos (See 2 mins):




I have nothing more to add, so here is the chart, which was broadcast to a very small Twitterdilly Arms audience at 4pm on Tuesday:




TWITTERDILLY ARMS CHART (Nb - Smiler With Knife in Bournemouth, Trouble Loves Me in Groningen, and a number of other live songs from the past week would definitely have made the chart, but they were not uploaded to Youtube by anyone.... so they didn't!)

  2. The good news is that I was successful in the Sydney Opera House ballot.

    The bad news is that I was allocated a seat at nose bleeding height and far more than rose hurling distance from the stage, Do you think that I could smuggle a rose-carrying drone into a venue like that?

    1. Well, it's either that or a cannon.

  3. Robust words from Broken. I consider myself chastised.
    Thanks for pointing out "ethics" not "edit" as I thought I'd heard in Rome,the old hearing is failing me.

    I am in Cardiff looking forward to tonight where I will have white roses.

  4. Gotta love Broken's special Easter greeting. Hopefully someday, somehow, one of the adult BRS members will manage to deliver a rose on stage.

    Have a lovely time in Cardiff tonight, EARS!

  5. I can attest to the fact that it is only feasible to get on the stage when there are no barriers. I know this from painful experience. No barrier=hug on stage. Barrier=beating, bruises and a sympathetic handshake.

  7. Morrissey in Cardiff was stunning, an unforgettable night. Each song brimming with passion & emotion. The atmosphere was wonderful, I was surrounded by some lovely people. And it is truly heartening to see so many young people in the audience.
    Toward the end the crowd went bonkers, I loved every second of it. Quite a few attempted to get on the stage & god knows where the shirt ended up.

    Buffy blew me away, she radiates an amazing spiritual energy. Beautiful & inspiring.

    It was a privilege to be in the presence of two remarkable & unique souls.
