  2. This is quite difficult since all the characters are unique in their own way providing humor and insight with their presence so Choosing 5 players of the play requires some decisive choice making.

    1. Our Mozzer- who art in parody heaven,
    Swallowed be thy gin.
    2. Boz Boorer- Never short on the antics
    3. Broken- sharp tongue and equally sharp mind
    4. Astrae - for her irresistable poetry and beauty
    5. Heather - her patience and the balance she brings are beyond us all

    I wanted to keep this to myself but...great JB pic choices rat you're getting the hang of it.

      7. Damon the hair dresser- with a fresh batch of Almond Macaroons from Greggs
      8. TRB - scurrying from here to there and everywhere
      9. Mam- where would we be without our mams?
      10. Jazmine- as a filler of little to no importance

    Note that I have left out OM, Boz, Broken and Astra as they are all shoe-ins. Tactical voting has kicked in.

    How did R get the spelling of Linder's name wrong, and why didn't Rat correct him?

    1. Thanks for add my name to the very long and lovely list! I'm agree with you for the "official" list of character, but maybe I should switch Wossy with Damon, well it does'nt matter! Have a nice day you all, here there are 40 degree and I'm a roasted chicken! Ciao.

    3. Why am I so far down the list, KAK? I'd make a great character. At least in my own stories I do. Thank you for the consideration though. I am certainly not worthy and this post was nothing more than a joke.

  13. I won't vote because there's no Alfiah on that list and anyway I'd rather not support the process.

    1. It's interesting that those of us involved in this Following the Mozziah story have fallen into separate groups by what we do or don't do. The 'Headless Puppets' group (which includes TRB, EARS, Heather, comrade harps, Jaz, Harrison, Manc lad) are the ones who would sell their grannies for an MW parody, and have rushed to post their top 10 as instructed by OM, where as the 'Splinter group' of MorrisseysWorlders (Orange Chuck, Marcus, GOB, Lizzy) are the ones who fell out with Broken, and therefore now refuse to play along with OM's requests, because their fall-out with Broken soured their whole experience - although whether they like it or not, they will always be true MWers because they 'were there', so it is now part of them!

      The other group of MWers are the likes of Loughton Lil, GWO and Romina, who are a little too cool for school, or have simply lost interest a little. There are also the likes of Father Brian and Vulgar Angie, who don't really seem overly interested in the parody concept, or interacting with twitter pessoas, but love the blue rose idea. We also have Moz Fiend, who falls into a few groups whilst probably believing she belongs to none - mind you, virtually EVERY Morrissey fan would hate to think they are part of a group... but most of us manage to fall into a home of sorts somehow.

      There are of course many others who have joined us along the way, but they didn't experience the original MorrisseysWorld blog and twitter account, so they aren't really MWers as such, and don't really have any interest in a new MW parody. They also don't seem interested in taking blue roses to concerts - it makes you wonder what they are hanging around for!

      It's a funny old (Morrisseys)world.

    2. I am also a headless puppet and don't ever forget it.

    3. I fall into all sorts of groups, some of them very sinister and mysterious. But I consider myself a part of anything having to do with Morrissey, no matter how remotely. He made me fall in love with his music and now there is nothing I can do about it but succumb happily. I go along peacefully without resistance.

      Delete
    4. "mind you, virtually EVERY Morrissey fan would hate to think they are part of a group..."
      I think you've got that wrong there Rat features. We feel that being a Morrissey fan is one big group, and that we are very pleased to be part of it.

      What group do you fall in? The one where you badger people to death to take Blue Roses to Morrissey concerts? The special group where you pressurise people, and make the whole experience of taking a Blue Rose to Morrissey, more like a chore than a pleasure? The one where you firmly believe Morrissey wants Blue Roses but you then choose to go to hardly any concerts, and then the ones you do go to you make NO attempt to deliver the rose, but instead blow up and inflatable Red Rose?
      And the group members? Just the one!
      Do you argue, block, and ban yourself sometimes? You've been busy on here today having conversations with yourself anyway.

      Our Top Ten

      1. Alf
      2. Alf's Fax Machine
      3. Boz
      4. OM
      5. Damon

    5. I hope you feel better having gotten that off your chest. I was going to put you right on a few things, but I really cannot be bothered, although I will put you right on one thing; NONE of those who actually take blue roses to concerts feel badgered, pressurised or that it's a chore, but you couldn't possibly begin to understand. You are right not to take a rose.
      Please do not post here again, just stick to your own unbelievably hilarious blog.

    7. I must agree with Mr. Rat Sir on this one. None of those who took blue roses to concerts felt badgered or pressurised.

      Which is why they brought roses.

      As for your earlier comment, Monsieur Le Raton - once again a stunning analysis, I salute you. But there's one thing I don't understand, I'm just a silly fruit, please help me - you say that the "splinter group" are those who fell out with Broken, but most of those never had anything to do with him! So I wonder what's the real reason why they prefer TWoM over FTM. Is it really just your shitty blog background?

      P.S. How's the sign business these days? It would seem that while TWoM blogs about coincidence after coincidence, there's not much going on on FTM. But I don't want you to feel left out, Monsieur Rat, so I'm making you aware of a sign that's specifically for you: KFC is MURDER. I'm looking forward to your blog article about it.

      Delete
    8. Oh Chuck, you want a little pop at me too, eh? I like the your opening line, but after that you turned back into the bitter Chuck of old who was central to 'Fag-gate' - are you sure you aren't the lemon pessoa today? Anyway, I was going to ignore you and your silly comments, but as I have 5 seconds to spare, let me give them to you - no need for thanks.

      I will start by telling you in no uncertain terms that I have no interest whatsoever in your petty 'blog war' and don't give two hoots as to whether you or anyone else chooses to comment on FTM or not - I lost my ego in 2007, although my headstrong personality remains firmly intact. This blog of mine is merely a place where I spill out my thoughts, but I am happy for those who are also on the MW journey to share their thoughts too, as it makes the whole thing more fun. Having the likes of you and Bitter Bobby Neville (FTP guy) come here to lay into me is NOT my idea of fun, which is why I will delete such comments. I am not a punch-bag and this is not Solow. If you are really so interested in writing about me, then may I suggest that you write an article on your own blog and that will then not only give you a place to vent your frustrations, but also give your splinter friends the opportunity to write a comment agreeing with you about me being a self-obsessed wanker who has ruined everything for everyone. Job done.

      As for the signs, I did see that Morrissey has started wearing finger lingerie again, but your other 'signs' such as Culture Club videos appearing on Youtube and Johnny Marr playing in Brazil and living in Portland are of no interest to me and have nothing whatsoever to do with MorrisseysWorld. You are seeing signs that just aren't there, which to be fair, we all do sometimes. Earlier this week in Seattle, Morrissey announced that he was going to sing 'What Difference Does it Make' before quickly backtracking. I was convinced that this was a reference to me mentioning it in my 2012 interview with him, but of course it wasn't, it was just Morrissey larking about on stage and having a joke. Not everything Morrissey does is MW related, and the actions of Youtubers and Johnny Marr certainly aren't!

      And finally, your KFC is murder comment. I presume that you have added this because it is the one topic that I won't be able to defend myself on, due to the fact that I eat chicken. You are right. Happy now?

      Delete
    9. Thank you for your long reply Sir, I really appreciate it, and I'm honoured. Flattered even!

      And I'm very delighted that you're happy for those who are also on the MW journey to share their thoughts too, as it makes the whole thing more fun. It would seem that although you expressed your discontent with TWoM in the past, you're becoming a fan after all. Would you like to become a contributor now? DM me your email address.

  18. 1. Our Mozzer, without whom . . . .
    2. Mam, to keep himself in check
    3. Boz, a lovely man who will re-assert himself in this parody
    4. TRB, without whom . . . And his mam is on the street and needs help
    5. Boy George, gives as good as he gets and would match OM for razor sharp wit
    6. Broken, without whom . . . We had our run-ins but Broken is essential to BRS and MW
    7. Mikey Bracewell, to document and scribe and write and cogitate and . . .
    8. The Walker Brothers, have given us some comedy gold moments
    9. Alan Bennett, crusty and semi-miserable, might have some insights into That Singer
    10. Jesse Tobias, he needs to reclaim his spoken English from the pen of OM

    Thank you for having us. As always.

    So there's indeed nothing to see here. Or is it?

    7. Tour Cat

    and extra vote from me for:

    10. "Brigitte sharing a 1920s cerise velvet chaise longue with me, long legs entwined and making friends"

    ReplyDelete
  26. Eighteen MorrisseysWorlders/BRS members have cast their votes over the past five days, and rather predictably, the current top 4 are:
    1. OM
    2. Boz
    3. Broken
    4. Astra

    The polls are open until 9.18pm (UK time) today, so if Chuck, LizzyCat, GOB and Marcus all voted for Astra and Mam (currently 5th) as their 1st and 2nd choices, and left Broken out all together, they would manage to oust him from the Top 4. Mind you, the authors would no doubt include Broken as a guest character anyway, so it's probably irrelevant.

    Mikey Bracewell is currently in 9th and the Swiss taxi driver 20th, but hopefully these characters might be granted 'guest slots' in the parody; after all, no MW parody is complete without these two. The only person on the list to receive no votes so far, is Mikey V Farrell.

    Carry on voting - or not, as the case may be.
