Day 1479 - Logging off

Reviews for List of the Lost have been predictably bad, with critics who no one has ever heard of doing ALL they can to make themselves noticed - "and those that do are judged by those who tried and found they couldn't do." The Guardian's reviewer - a man who looks as those he is permanently embarrassed, which undoubtedly he is - made his review as scathing as he possibly could, and posted it online at 4am on the day of release to make sure that he got noticed first. Here we are four days on, and can anyone remember this man's name? No! And did his opinion of the book (if he actually read it) have any bearing on whether it was a good read or not? No!


MICHAEL HANN (I HAD TO LOOK IT UP!) - GUARDIAN MUSIC EDITOR - PERMANENTLY EMBARRASSED

What Mr Sheeran Senior's review actually does do, is back-up what anyone with half an ounce of intelligence can see, i.e. that anyone without half an ounce of intelligence needs to be TOLD what they should think.

I am hoping that Our Mozzer may write a Review of the Reviewers parody, just as he did when Autobiography was released. A parody of some sort is apparently on it's way, as this comment was left by 'B' (Broken? Boz? Bracewell?) on yesterday's FTM:

Morrissey has left a new comment on your post "Day 1476 - List of the Lost's Twitter Dozen":

Parody imminent.

Keep your eyes open.

Only FTM will ever receive authentic MW content.

Once again, we hold our breath in anticipation.

Last night Morrissey put on a show in Belgium, and it would appear that You'll Be Gone didn't feature. This is a tragedy! This is one of the VERY BEST covers that Morrissey has EVER done, and just because the song didn't work in Paris, for whatever reason, it MUST return to the set. It just MUST. I have purchased the Elvis RCA original from ebay (b side of Do the Clam), and have spent the early part of this morning flamenco dancing around my kitchen, whipping an imaginary mic lead for all I am worth.

And whilst I am on the subject of tragedies, Log Lady, i.e. the actress Catherine Coulson, is dead.
Log Lady was a HUGE part of the MorrisseysWorld blog, and even those of us who never watched Twin Peaks, had gotten to know and like her.... although actually, it wasn't Catherine who we got to know and like, as the part of Log Lady was being played by somebody else on the MW blog.... so actually, Catherine's death isn't the tragedy I first thought.... although to her family and friends, it IS a tragedy.... I think I'd better stop blathering.



Next stop for Morrissey is Frankfurt tomorrow night, although I am rather confused, as Morrissey is supposed to be appearing on Alan Carr's Chatty Man this coming Friday, and the filming takes place on Wednesday. I can only presume that he pre-recorded it (the singing of Kiss Me a Lot) whilst he was in London. In Frankfurt, Orangey Chuck will be awaiting with a blue rose.

And finally, when I wrote my list of subjects that Morrissey has mentioned in List of the Lost, I completely forgot to mention his nod to the Carry On films, with the mention of a character he invented called.... wait for it.... Chesty Normous! Oh, Moz, you beauty!

  2. Certainly hoping that a new parody appears very soon. I find B's comment about it rather curious, so it will be interesting to see what might transpire. I'm truly disappointed to hear that 'You'll Be Gone' has gone from the set. I hope the absence doesn't prove to be permanent, as it's much too good to retire so soon.

  3. 21 tunes in the chart and no Istanbul (live in London 2015) which was stunning. I demand a recount.

  4. As perhaps fitting of my propensity to chase after empty crisp packets, I googled a bit of the back cover blurb and stumbled across a letter to a young poet. Interesting read.

    1. Thanks so much for finding this. I had been wondering if that blurb might have been influenced by an outside source. Very interesting.

  5. We had some fun with log lady in the MW days. Fond memories.

    I am so grateful for You Tube so look back on previous concerts. You'll Be Gone is a true gem , I hope it makes a comeback.

    Even though I am lucky enough to be going to Budapest I can't help but feel sad that it could be farewell.
