Day 2171 - "At my worst I am Morrissey"

In my last blog entry I wrote that Morfessa had taken to Twitter yesterday to post a comment about Ian Brady. Morfessa returned to Twitter a few hours later to tweet some more, but this time with the new Twitter name of...... Morrissey!

No one will of course believe that this is the real Morrissey, but that is neither here nor there. Here are  Morrissey's highlights from yesterday:

"My Finger Nails Collect the World's Problems." (Ed - This is supposedly the title of an unpublished Morrissey song that was first mentioned on Day 472 of FTM, with the lyrics (wrongly) published on Day 859 & correctly published on Day 860)

"Interaction is overrated."

"My magnanimity will be unheard, whereas my obstreperously will be renowned."

"A man thinking or working is always alone..."

"I could take a personal portrait and post onto here. Still no one would believe."

"Perhaps a personal portrait would be humorous this late on in the game?"

"I am at your disposal. All four of you."

In reply to Heather tweeting, "Imagine the hordes if there was a blue tick":

"I'd still be terribly misunderstood. When I'm kind, I'm called dull; when I'm dull, I'm called awkward; when I'm playful I'm called cruel; and when I'm cruel I'm called witty."

"I have proven honesty in popular music gets you nowhere."

I replied to that last tweet with, "Nowhere? Hardly nowhere", to which Morrissey came back with:

"Well, I'm still here. Here in my bedsit whiling away lonely afternoons on Twitter."

It struck me as strange that Mozzer had tweeted, "afternoons" as it was 7.55 in the evening, but an explanation (of sorts) came in the next tweet:

"When I say bedsit... The Sunset Marquis has gone downhill slightly in recent decades."

If that tweet about the Sunset Marquis is to be believed, then Morrissey is currently in LA, which would explain why he tweeted "afternoons".... although as a matter of fact, Morrissey's tweeting session of yesterday would have taken place between 6.15am and 11.59am LA time, and NOT in the afternoon. Maybe M's latest bout of depression has resulted in a complete lack of time awareness!

As Morrissey's mood appeared to still be somewhat somber, I asked him, "When will you be starting the, "live more and care less" regime?", to which he replied, "Regime? Am I Stalin?". When I retorted that, "there are definitely similarities", I was met with a single word response: "C**T!!"

Morrissey returned again at 2.17pm LA time to tweet:

"At my best I am a mature Robbie Williams impersonator, at my worst I am Morrissey."

  2. Sorry dearest Moz but it is the other way around.

  3. So glad you included the big brother pic from the MW blog. With the recent resurrection of some of the classic pieces, I've been thinking about that piece and really wanting to re-read it - one of the masterpieces of the blog and among my top favorites.

  4. Ho Ratty, probably our Morrissey is a little bit bored, but if boredom takes him on twitter we're here to say hello!����

    1. Bored? I think he takes to Twitter for the deep and meaningful interaction with fellow intellectuals.

      Delete
    2. Ha! Is he interacting with people we don't know about?

    3. Oh yes, probably he is on Twitter just got me.... lol!😁🤗😘

  5. If the Sunset Marquis was going anywhere, it would be going out of style.
    The Hollywood area is being neglected as investors and trend setters are trading out the gilded glamour establishments for rough raw storehouses for a good price. There they can turn them into ghetto funky studios with laminate wood floors or so I've noticed. I think Morrissey using his own name on twitter is ingenious.Do you know how many username Morrisseys there are? Once again he manages to elude the masses.

    1. The Sunset Marquis looks rather nice. What happened to that English pub - the Cat & Fiddle?

      Delete
    2. I found the marquis to be good, but I forgot about the garden entrance and came back through the front of the hotel, big mistake as people were queuing to go in to the bar/club, I got dirty looks when I walked past them all and was ushered in with my room key, I could even here one guy say " who the f*** is that " aah! fame at last

    3. So thankful I had a chance to visit the C&F, what a charming place it was - so sad that it's gone. Their website says they will be reopening in a new location.

    6. At this point, if Moz were to post on TTY that the Morfessa account was indeed his, still no one would believe.

    7. Speaking of TTY, why isn't it being used anymore?

    9. damn, twice I have left a message telling you that in early June I along with a few friends will be in Rome, but nothing, all I was after was the name of a few good clubs our Italian scrumpet

    2. I've just popped out from work on an "errand". Currently sitting in Tesco car park.

    3. Where are GWO, Boozey, Nat, Harrison, Father Brian, Angie, comrade herpes etc? And what happened to all those others who used to be involved? How can you discover Morrissey on the internet, and not bother to hang around waiting to hear/read his every word? This is history in the making. This is now.
      And now I know how Oscar Wilde felt.

    4. You can add JG to that list too - he was always a firm believer but drifted away for some reason.

    5. Well done on your 'errand', Ears. This is important business!

  8. The comment about RW made me smile.

    1. Do you remember when Morrissey and Robbie were both on the Jonathan Ross Show, and Morrissey said to Robbie that he looked very orange? Also, weren't the pair of them once rumoured to do a duet together?

      Delete
    2. I went and saw Robbie at one of those Knebworth concerts in 2003. It was an event, but it is ridiculous that Robbie has been bombarded with all those Brit awards over the years whereas Morrissey receives nothing. Robbie would no doubt admit himself that talent wise, he isn't fit to lace Morrissey's vegan shoes.

      Delete
    3. A duet? What would they have sung together? Completely right about the Brit awards - what a ridiculous world we live in.

      Delete
    4. I saw Robbie once by accident ( long story ) He is entertaining but Moz is in a different league.

      Delete
    5. Come on then, let's have your long story.

      Delete
    6. The duet(s) were mentioned in Autobiography p370. Also Morrissey's 'awards cabinet'.

      Delete
    7. Just re-read it. I'd forgotten that Robbie put two notes through Mozzer's front door asking to, "do something together".

      Delete
    8. I'd forgotten about this altogether, so thanks for pointing it out to us, GWO.

  9. I am wondering which classic we may be treated to.

    1. Hopefully it will be the one that features that Stalin picture - The Morrissey World Order. I wrote about it on Day 485, stating, "it is not only by far the longest parody piece ever written on the blog, it is also proclaimed as the best".
      Heather commented, "this is unbelievably funny, an epic classic, and I love the new perspective on determining what is Morrisseyesque. This piece is yet another highlight of the blog."
      Jaz wrote of it, "this one has just become my favorite piece of all time."
      JG said, "I pronounce it as the best piece on the blog so far".

      I really hope that it is this piece.

      Delete
    2. I really hope you're right, Rats. A resurrection of the MWO would excite me to no end.

      Delete
    3. Do you remember the beginning of 'The Morrissey World Order'? It went something like:

      'It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen. Rosy Mires, her chin nuzzled into her breast in an effort to escape the vile wind, slipped quickly through the glass doors of Maladjusted Mansions, though not quickly enough to prevent a swirl of gritty dust from entering along with her.'

      It would certainly be great to see it republished.

      Delete
    4. Mind you, from memory, there were a fair few errors in it, so if it does get republished perhaps a new 'R'; if there is one, will edit it first. Here is another section from MWO (with errors included & highlighted):

      'Some years ago Boorer had fallen out of favour with Our Mozzer, which, it had to be said, was not usual (Ed - should read 'unusual'); everyone always did in the end. Boorer’s crime, according to whispered rumours, had been to purchase Our Mozzer a birthday card during the week of Our Mozzer’s official birthday (Mozzmas), which took place on May 22nd every year, and had taken on even greater importance since Christmas was officially abolished in 2021. Giving Our Mozzer a birthday card was a faux-pas in of (sic) itself – like many men of a certain age he didn’t wanted to be reminded of birthdays, even if the nation was celebrating it – but Comrade Boorer compounded his error by presenting a card with ‘Happy 60th Birthday!’ emblazoned on the front in bold orange print. Our Mozzer was in his very-late-fortes (sic), and had been for at least fifteen years, so far as Rosy Mires or anyone else could remember. The one thing one must never do was mention his age.'

      It really is one of the all time MW classics.

    5. A true masterpiece. Now you've really whetted my appetite to read more.

  12. Finger Nails? Do I spot a spelk?

  13. Hmm, years later that little statement of mine holds true, MWO remains in my top 5 parody posts. I think it had to do with the imagery of a building sized poster of Our Mozzer is watching you. And Swords being played continuously and even after you've played your copy of Swords you go out and purchase another copy of it just because you feel inclined to. Oh and also Victory Gin.

  14. Yes, The Cat and Fiddle is being rebuilt which is a relief because the only other location is somewhere in Kardashian land, I mean Calabasas. There is where I'll be easing the pain of the day I was sentenced to this earth 28 years ago. No one's invited. Please don't come.

  15. I was reflecting whilst driving home about my early days of finding MW Blog. In particular I was thinking about those who didn't stay on twit for long & slowly drifted away from the blog.
    Who remembers surfing bird? I believe I am right in saying she played the piano. Then there was Hand-In-Glove an actress who had her leg in plaster. Manc always used to call her glove puppet. I never got to the bottom of why he called me Luke!
    Was it Jo-Beth? When there was a thread on favourite love songs I think I am right in saying she said Trouble Loves Me. Am I remembering this correctly? Feel free to correct me if not. My memory is frightful.

    1. Rutger! What a star he was, I always enjoyed his company.
      I think most people had arrived before me. I believe GWO & I arrived at about the same time. It was fate that I found the blog.Initially It didn't even cross my mind that Moz could have anything to do with it. I remember in particular being drawn to a piece written by Luke.
      Oh The All Night Chemist. I loved it there & recall Manc's work. I will skip over my angst which I left there. But remember the warmth & support I was given.
      There have been some very candid & special interactions over the years.

    2. All way before my time - I was 4 months late to the party. What happened to the poetic, Ecubyan Soap Box?

    3. Thanks for the walk down memory lane, Ears - I haven't thought about those people for a long time. Madame de Stael's Ghost was in our group back then, too. Such fond memories of those early days - such a very special time.

    4. I think you'll find that Madame de Stael's Ghost is gwo.

  17. So . . I popped out of the Twitterdilly Arms for some fresh air one evening and I must have taken a wrong turn. I think I fell asleep in the park. When I woke up the Twit was now the Wrong, I had left my job, retired from work, sold the house and moved to Ireland. In other words, real life took over and every time I staggered back to the bar life called me back to deal with something.

    I even set out to raise a glass to Ratty for his 1,000,000th page view but never got here.

    Anyway, life is returning to normal (although himself has taught us that there is no such thing) and my path to the bar has been swept clean and the grass cut. I must say the place is looking worn but neat and nice to see the small bunch of regulars huddled around the fire.

    I do expect to see the Morrissey wagon train coming this way next time around of course.
