Day 1937 - Brooklyn Rosie

I last wrote a blog entry 20 days ago, and if I'm honest, I had a feeling that I may not write another one again. I had become utterly confused by all the various twitter accounts that may or may not be Morrissey pessoas, and I was also still reeling from Our Mozzer directing me to my grave; as documented on Day 1891 'A traveller to the grave'. When the AlfsButton twitter account emerged, and immediately blocked me, I decided that my presence was no longer wanted, so I changed my twitter profile to read 'A traveller to the grave' and decided to exit The Wrong Arms, possibly for good. It also seemed to me that Morrissey had lost interest in the Blue Rose Society.

But last night in Brooklyn, on the last night of Morrissey's four date mini-tour of the USA, a glimmer of light appeared; actually, it was more than that, it was EARTH SHATTERING. Not only did the grave travelling song, How Can Anybody Possibly Know How I Feel get sung, but as the show reached its climax, Morrissey headed over to longtime BRS member, Jesse (@Mozfiend), and purposefully reached to take her blue roses; which he then subsequently held directly in front of his face so that there could be NO mistaking what he was holding.

MORRISSEY HOLDS JESSE'S BLUE ROSES IN BROOKLYN

By accepting Jesse's blue roses, Morrissey not only kept up the tradition of accepting at least one blue rose EVERY year since 2012, but has also showed that the Blue Rose Society that HE formed is alive and well. In the BRS, "you're never alone, you're never disconnected".

Today is a good day.

*Goes off singing*
Oh, I love my Rosie child
You got the way to make me happy
You and me we go in style
Brooklyn Rose,
You're a store bought woman
But you make me sing like a guitar hummin'
So hang on to me, girl
Our song keeps runnin' ooooon
Play it now, play it now
Play it now, my baby

  1. It is wee hours in the am here. I had just finished listening to 'World of Morrissey', while half asleep thinking I should post something on FTM about, how after following since 2011, first on MW, then on FTM, and how sad and empty I felt, that this was first tour I had not been able to follow on a site. I had intended to thank Manc lad for his recent postings on the tour on FTM, when I discovered that you, Mr Ratty, had returned and had to marvel at the synchronicity, as I had intended to end my post with "Does anyone feel the same way I do?" Well, welcome back!

  3. Good to have you back blogging again Rats.
    Whilst our numbers may dwindle, this means a lot & I really wasn't expecting it.
    Of course you should always expect the unexpected on this momentous journey we are sharing together.
    Another milestone & special day for BRS.

  4. Wow - just love it! Saw a video on Facebook of Kyle getting rather manhandled by the security guards and Moz wanting to go over and shake his hand but he had already been whisked off...

  5. Some lovely surprises lately, including the Ramones cover, the acceptance of Jesse's rose, and the intriguing new hand sign at the PA show (during AYNIM). I love how he tosses the rose up in the air after he first takes it, much like he has done with previous blue roses - he definitely makes a show of it when he accepts them. Very excited to see that BRS is alive and well.

    1. Forgot to mention - the extended shirt toss tease is much appreciated, as well. All in all, quite a memorable concert!

  7. For any and all who may be interested, I am composing a "review" of the Brooklyn show, including the flower story, but please be patient. I will finish it as soon as I get the time and hopefully will publish tonight or tomoz at the latest.
