Day 1521 - Only so much despair

There is STILL no Youtube footage of Saturday's Morrissey concert in Ecuador; unless you count a minute long blurred clip of How Soon is Now? with dreadful fan sing-a-long:



Photos of Morrissey in Ecuador have continued to appear on the internet, including lots of Moz signing things outside his hotel.

DOLLS IN HAND

Astra paid a quick visit to The Loveless just before 1am this morning (10pm Chilean time), but only to swap pleasantries with a couple of the regulars. There has been no sign of Our Mozzer since October 26th.

Following on from me mentioning Joe Dallesandro in yesterday's blog entry, Joe not only 'liked' (it's no longer called favourite on twitter) my tweet mentioning the blog entry, but also went on to post a tweet of the cover of The Queen is Dead LP, and added @BRSChairman to the tweet! Hmm.

As I don't have anything else to write about, I thought I would mention the current MorrisseysBand football squad. When I last mentioned the squad in February 2014, it looked like this:

1. Matt Walker (Goalkeeper/Drummer)
2. Boz Boorer (Clogging Right Back/Musical Director/Head of Catering/Guitar/Clarinet/Cross Dresser)
3. Gustavo Manzur (Left Back/Keyboards/Translator)
4. Liam Nammock (Holding Midfielder (usually around the neck)/Personal Bodyguard to the Moz/Hard Bastard/Driver/Licensed Thug)
5. Solomon Walker (Centre Back/Bass Guitar/Dumb Waiter/Singer of Backing Vocals on Maladjusted)
6. Jesse Tobias (Centre Back who likes to show flair by pushing forward. A modern day Bobby Moore/Guitars/Looks)
7. Donnie Knutson (Midfielder/Tour Manager/Rider Provider/Rose Supplier)
8. Jay Joannides (Midfielder... likes to get stuck in alongside Nammock/Roadie/Security)
9. Damon 'Kevin Phillips' Anacreonte (Centre Forward...the only genuine footballer in the side/Hairdresser... have you been on your holidays this year?/Encourager)
10. George 'Morrissey' Best (Attack!/Playmaker/Genius/Singer/Defender of the defenseless)
11. Arturo Hernandez (Nifty Winger(?)/Security/Man Mountain)
12. Kristeen Young (Playmaker/Singer/Professional Wailer)

Nammock has gone out on loan, and so Damon 'Kevin Phillips' Anacreonte has dropped into the holding position. He has impressed with his light touch and his caress of the ball is simply beautiful. Central defender Solomon Walker has been replaced by the left footed, no nonsense, Mando 'Loopy' Lopez, whilst Hernandez and Young have been transferred out. With no financial backer at the moment, the latter two haven't been replaced, and so sponge man Dave 'Milky' Millward has been drafted in to try and engineer some umph.

I haven't mentioned List of the Lost recently, and it is a book that keeps on giving, so I shall mention it again today. Marianne tweeted a great line this morning, "Only so much despair can be survived before the mind finally caves in." HOW powerful is that! We await to see if that audio book appears on Thursday.

And finally for today, whilst looking for Quito footage on Youtube, I cam across this. It is a song by a band called Hot Dad, entitled, What's Wrong Now, Morrissey? It made me smile... but only slightly!

  5. THAT cardigan. I have one just like it. Caught sight of myself in it in a shop window one day. Like a bat in flight. It's now reserved for loafing on the sofa.

    1. Moz in cardigans is one of my weaknesses. One of many...

  6. Quite a tremendous chart to put together from beyond the grave - I do hope that another resurrection might be possible again sometime. Lovely to see Moz being so friendly with the fans.

    1. Forgot to mention that it's exciting to hear that Moz will be making a TV appearance on Thursday, possibly including an interview.
