Day 1700 - The missed O's of Gothenburg

MerryAnne (@sadglamour) tweeted a photo earlier today of Morrissey making 'owl eyes' with his fingers in Gothenburg at his book signing in 2013. I had not ever seen this photo before, and therefore must list it as an officially missed sign for the Blue Rose Society.


MORRISSEY MAKING OWL EYES - GOTHENBURG 2013

Our Mozzer first introduced us to the 'Owl eye' sign in November 2011, when he published a collage on his MorrisseysWorld blog.




THE OWL EYE COLLAGE FROM THE MORRISSEYSWORLD BLOG - NOVEMBER 2011

Following the publishing of the collage, the image went on to become the symbol for the BRS, with Morrissey making the sign a number of times on stage, including at the Conan TV show.


 That Gothenburg book signing also saw Morrissey displaying and then touching a vase of roses. Oh those halcyon days of the Blue Rose Society.

  3. **PHOTOSHOP** what's missing from that picture is the rather fetching pencil case that he's holding.

    1. No, no, no. The Blue Q Art Supplies pencil case was at the Sydney book signing, not this one. I'm surprised at you, GWO, you usually have such a good memory. Gothenburg is a double O sign to the BRS and we missed it.... or at least, have only just seen it!
