Day 2332 - gOne gOne gOne

Ladies and gentlemen, the seminal artist has now left the building.

Late on Monday afternoon, Morrissey - as AlfsButton - popped into The Wrong Arms and tweeted, "Goodbye". He then immediately closed the AlfsButton twitter account. There are now no MorrisseysWorld related twitter accounts remaining. Another chapter in the MorrisseysWorld story has come to an end.

We now look to the next chapter, and towards the stage to see if someone can get a blue rose to Morrissey. The tour starts in just six days time, in Portland. The newest BRS member, @LifeIsAPigsty_ will be taking a blue rose to Portland, and we also have other BRS members taking roses to concerts throughout the tour including: the BRS Vice President, Angie on November 18th, and the BRS President, Kyle, on December 2nd. No doubt Jaz and Jesse, who have both previously managed to get a blue rose to Morrissey, will also be doing their best to deliver one again.

MORRISSEY HOLDING JESSE'S BLUE ROSE IN BROOKLYN - SEPTEMBER 24 2016

I am so excited for those BRS members in the USA who will be taking their roses, and dearly wish that I could have found an opportunity to go to a concert and take a rose. Hopefully there will be a UK tour early next year.

As we wait for the tour to begin, we have a pre-recorded appearance on the Graham Norton Show to look forward to on Friday, along with the vinyl release of Spent The Day In Bed.


 


Today we have had the release of the second single from Low In High School, I Wish You Lonely. Once again there is a lyric video, but this time the video gives a distinct nod to MorrisseysWorld. Every single 'O' that appears on the lyrics as they scroll up the screen, is larger than the rest of the letters.



The letter 'O' featured heavily in the early days of the MorrisseysWorld blog. Firstly a collage was posted in November 2011 of famous people making an 'O' sign with their fingers. Following the publication of the collage, Morrissey made 'O' signs with his hands on the Conan Show, and then went on to make 'O' gestures to BRS members in the audience at concerts. Blue 'O' s were inexplicably added to the Hollywood High School sign in 2013, and an 'O' gesture was made by Morrissey at his book signing in Gothenburg.

Will anyone wonder why the 'O' s in the lyric video are larger than the other letters? Probably, but only a few of us will actually know the answer. MorrisseysWorld and the Blue Rose Society continues....

  1. You can add me to the list of those bringing roses (St. Louis - can't wait!). Enjoying IWYL today - sounds fantastic!

    1. I'd love you to get a rose to Moz. Hopefully you can get close enough. It's been nearly six years since that concert in Chicago on December 17 2011, when you first took a blue rose. I've just re-read this, which I wrote as you were stood outside the venue in the freezing cold. The BRS has come a long way since then: http://followingthemozziah.blogspot.co.uk/2011/12/following-mozziah-day-94-saturday-17th.html

    4. Fingers crossed I can get close enough to the stage in St Louis. Rats, thanks for posting Day 94, I really enjoyed that walk down memory lane - those special early days when no roses had yet been accepted and Trouble being played seemed like a hopeless dream. Now, six years later, several roses have been accepted, Trouble has been played numerous times (once while wearing a blue rose), and now the latest nod to BRS appears to be the recent FB photo that includes a poster with Trouble lyrics, designed by Alf Button's Revenge. It looks like the game is still on - long may it last.

    5. I will write a blog post about the FB photo tomorrow. Nice of the Solowers to find Alf's parting gift to us....even though they have no idea what it is they have found. Not one of them is asking WHY the picture on FB was doctored. Not one of them is asking WHY a poster by Alf Button has been put into the picture. Not one of them is asking WHY Trouble Loves Me has been mentioned.
      Wouldn't it be great if we were to get Trouble Loves Me on this tour - preferably sung wearing your blue rose. Maybe that's a little too much to hope for.
      As you mentioned, the game is still on...

    6. You're right, that's probably too much to hope for, but one can dream. Or maybe the recent clues suggest that IWYL will be the BRS song on this tour and it might possibly be sung while wearing a rose?
