Day 2121 - The Mozziah Incident

The title of today's blog entry has come about following the mention, by Morrissey, of a book called The Otterbury Incident. The mention was in another new interview, this time with the Mexican version of Rolling Stone Magazine. In the interview, Morrissey was asked what his favourite book was as a child, and he answered, "A book called The Otterbury Incident, which is now impossible to find."

The book isn't actually that hard to find, as you can pick it up for a couple of quid on ebay, but what is interesting about Morrissey's mention of TOI, is that the style in which it is written has made BRS member, Jaz, think of FTM.

I had never heard of TOI before, but according to google, the narrator (a character in the book called George) styles himself as the official war historian, writing up the history of 'The Otterbury Incident' in the high serious language of an epoch changing event. I have to admit, that does rather sound like me writing about Our Mozzer, or The Mozziah, and his foray on the internet.

Also in this latest interview, Morrissey states that he has concerns about touring because it; diminishes hearing, and, "the lights fry your hair and contact lenses." He also says that he doesn't have an exercise regime, and once again mentions that, "I've never had coffee in my life." A few of the BRS members have questioned whether M is telling the entire truth about exercising and coffee drinking, although why would anyone lie about a thing like coffee drinking?


FRYING TONIGHT

There have been no further visits to The Wrong Arms by any of the Morrissey pessoas since my last blog entry. Will we see Dawn, Alf or Seminal Bully before the first concert on Thursday?

And finally, Morrissey has been photographed arriving in Mexico. He was wearing an 'All Seeing Eye' pin badge, designed by sophiagracias.com for an exhibition called 'BLUE'. The 'All Seeing Eye'/Owl Eyes was a major part of the MorrisseysWorld blog, but Morrissey wearing this badge is, of course, just another of many, many, many coincidences.

Also in the photo is an Aeromexico stewardess wearing a blue rose scarf, which I am happy to accept as a genuine coincidence, although no doubt it would have made Morrissey smile.

  1. Haha, I certainly remember a certain non-stop twitter session after consuming too much caffeine from a well known coffee chain. Was it in Belgium? Around the time he wore the grevening carnation? Also his famous quote: "I lie a lot - it comes in useful." Got to love Our Mozzer!

  2. The first concert is actually on Wednesday (very soon!). I remember that OM sometimes used to mention drinking coffee in the chatroom. Also, this interview happens to mention M drinking coffee: http://www.compsoc.man.ac.uk/~moz/quotes/odec1995.htm

    1. It might be on Wednesday where you live, but it'll be Thursday where I am, and probably a week on Saturday where comrade herpes is.
      I wonder what that coffee denial is all about - I genuinely have never drunk a cup of coffee in my life.

    2. I have drunk a cup of coffee. Just one.

  3. “Big man with the weightlifting. He had a flat in Kensington and we helped him move. Odd flat. One of those sort of middle-aged person’s flats, furnished, quite grand, in a mansion block. Gloomy place, with lots of books and Smiths posters and pictures of him. So we’re helping him move, you know, and he had these dumbbells - traditional, metal pole, things at the end. I foolishly tried to pick one up, couldn’t fucking get it off the ground. And he said, ‘Oh, allow me.’ And picked it up in one hand. He looked after himself.”

  7. I was just flicking through some old FTM's, and found this one (Day 1042), which shows just what a liar Chuck is. She tried to make out that I was behind the BRS tumblr, plus lots of other deception - it's funny what you forget. : http://followingthemozziah.blogspot.co.uk/2014/07/day-1042-mystery-of-bluerosesociety.html?m=0

  8. I'm very curious about books, for a while they were my only friends, Though it's crazy that I cannot recall my own childhood favourites. I'll give a list if anyone asks. Great find about the pin, One popular form of evil eye protection in Mexico is called Ojo de Venado (deer's eye) usually a red thread bracelet with a blue glass bead or seed to serve as the eye. Often worn by babies and small children to ward off envy and negative thoughts that superstition believes will cause them to be ill.
    Gorillaz at number 20 on the chart and not even the strongest song of the four that were released. Shame.

    1. I can't say that I am a Gorillaz fan. I only came across that song because it featured Jehn Beth.

  9. Hello Ratty dear, what a nice post! Morrissey looks in top form and I'm very curious about the set list. I wish he could sing a new song, but I would listen to Little Man What Now ( because I can't remember him singing it live) Forgive Someone and A Rush and a Push... for the quote "Ther's to much caffeine in your blood..." I'm joking... Thank you and Good night, ciao.

  11. Dawn is lost at sea. Lost and never to be keen, mean or seen. Her sea legs let her down, for what are legs without sea and the sea without lighthouses?
