Day 1560 - Happy Xmas (Tour Is Over)



Embedded image permalink
POSTER EATING GOATS IN LIMA

On Day 1293 of FTM, I used the headline Happy Easter (Tour Is Over), and described how Morrissey had ended his Spring European tour in Tilburg by playing Life is a Pigsty; which I had presumed was for former BRS member Inge, who had tried harder than anyone else to get a blue rose to Moz during the 2014 Autumn tour - as it happens Inge didn't attended the Tilburg concert. The Spring tour had been fantastic, although it had been unsuccessful for the BRS, with us all failing to get a blue rose to Moz; although when I say all, only myself and EARS actually took a rose to a concert in the Spring. It was dark times for the BRS.

MORRISSEY RAISES AN EYEBROW AT MY INFLATABLE RED ROSE IN BOURNEMOUTH, BUT IT WAS DARK TIMES FOR THE BRS IN THE SPRING

Last Saturday night, Morrissey and his band brought to an end their incredibly successful South American tour, and although no blue roses were passed to Morrissey on this leg of the tour either, we reach Christmas with the BRS certainly in better shape than it was at Easter, with red, white and blue roses having appeared at many, many concerts throughout the year - as documented on the Blue Rose Society tumblr - and Morrissey accepting and wearing a blue rose for the fourth year in a row, when he took Jaz's in Utah.

MORRISSEY WEARING JAZ'S BLUE ROSE IN UTAH

Saturday night's concert in Lima saw yet another nod to a BRS member, with Heather's Twitter profile picture of Morrissey's cat displayed as the backdrop whilst Morrissey sung a wonderful rendition of Simon & Garfunkel's El Condor Pasa (If I Could). Morrissey's version:

HEATHER'S TWITTER PROFILE PICTURE DISPLAYED DURING EL CONDOR PASA

It could of course be argued that Morrissey was just displaying a picture of his own cat; a picture which he had previously posted on TTY back in August when he wrote about cats keeping the rodent population under control.... although why us rodents need controlling, I really don't know, but for me, it is far too coincidental that Morrissey used this particular picture on Saturday, especially as Mademoiselle Fifi tweeted to Heather last Tuesday to say, "@heathercat222 You are such a lovely person." This photo was for Heather, just as the juggling oranges on the James Corden show was for Chuck, the Harsh Truth of the Camera Eye quote in San Jose was for Jaz, Action is My Middle Name in Budapest for Kerry, etc etc etc. Morrissey continues to pay recognition to the members of his Blue Rose Society, and NOBODY sees, but then again, why would they see, when they don't know what to look for, or are even aware that there is anything to look for!

When Morrissey made a nod to his MorrisseysWorld blogsite at the London Palladium in August 2011, I was in the audience, but had no idea what he was up to. It was only later that I realised, but when Morrissey mentioned a toothbrush at the concert I attended in Long Island in 2013, I knew FULL WELL what he was on about. I feel incredibly lucky to have been part of the whole MorrisseysWorld/BRS journey.

"WELCOME TO MY WORLD" - MORRISSEY MAKES A NOD TO HIS OWN MORRISSEYSWORLD BLOG

And on the subject of MorrisseysWorld, or at least one of it's characters/authors/pessoas, last Tuesday Morrissey posted a statement on TTY regarding Margaret Thatcher murdering Argentinians. At the end of the statement, Moz posted a video of Thatcher being exposed as a liar by Diana Gould. Coincidentally, the last time that the MW character, Broken appeared on Twitter, he posted three videos of.... Margaret Thatcher!

So, this is Christmas. Another year over.... well, not quite!

Next stop for Morrissey and his band is San Francisco on December 29th, followed by Morrissey's first ever New Years Eve concert in LA, and then a final concert in Las Vegas on January 2nd. There will be BRS members at all three concerts, so all eyez and EARS will be peeled to see if there is anything else coming our way.

  1. Sorry Ratty, but everyone knows that cats beat rats any day, in every way :) The photo of M's cat makes a lovely backdrop, whether or not it was intended as a nod to the BRS, and El Condor Pasa was a beautiful tribute to Peru. Congrats to Moz and the band for a brilliant South American tour.

    Merry Christmas to everyone and happy '37th' to you, Rats.

  2. Heather deserves the recognition for her constant devotion to MW & BRS. She has many good qualities & is a stabilizing influence. Always fair, level headed, reliable & enthusiastic. And on a personal level she has show me true loyalty & friendship.

    In what has been a tough year for me, I've been blessed to see Morrissey so many times. Whilst it weighs heavy that I've been dismally unsuccessful with delivering a rose, I've the most precious memories to hold on to.

    Seasons Greetings to those of you who enjoy this time of year & stay strong for those who don't!
    Rats, thank you for another year of blogging & have a lovely birthday on Thursday.
    Lastly my love & heartfelt thanks to those of you who have shown me kindness this year (you know who you are!)

  4. Happy holidays for everyone. It has been a pleasure following your tweets and posts. And it is amazing that one is able to follow Moz's tour so closely and yet so far.

    We don't have any snow here where I live. I wish it will snow soon.

    Love love love

  5. Many thanks again Rat for your continual updates via your blog, I miss a lot of things which I find out about here. Whilst in attendance happy Christmas to you and all the regulars including EARS and GWO who partied with us in Bournemouth and the elusive pimpernel himself, Manc.

    Some day Manc, some day.

    A mention for Loughton Leisure Centre would be nice in the USA ��

  9. Thanks to Morrissey, Rats and the whole #BRS community for their entertainment over 2015. Have a great Xmas (however unlikely) and come 2016.

    Personal highlights from 2015 included:
    Seeing Morrissey in May at the Sydney Opera House (and tacking a blue rose to my back row seat)
    Something to do with photo collages of Morrissey duplicating the poses of others (a mere flimsy coincide)

  10. Merry 60th Birthday Eve Ratbags.

    Will be busy over the next few days, so would like to wish you all a VERY MERRY Christmas! Don't get to shitfaced.

    PS. If anyone is free to live update the other, far more superior blob for the upcoming dates let Marianne or myself know. Thanks.

    1. I second that, it would be great to have those updates again. As you might know, Fruit isn't available this time, and my time zone makes it difficult anyway... but maybe someone in a more convenient situation (I'm thinking US/Australia) is free?

      Whatever you're celebrating - Happy Holidays to all Blue Rose people, pessoas, parody pessoas, Mlles, Mmes, Messieurs, furred or otherwise.

    3. Yes definitely. We will shower you with our kindest praise if anyone would like to do updates for our fantastic blob.
