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.
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.
