It is interesting to note that when Dawn writes song titles, she uses capital letters for each word, where as Morfessa doesn't. I reckon that this is done on purpose to make us believe that they are two different people, but personally, I'm not buying it... and I'm not sure that it's for sale anyway.

Morrissey (as Morfessa) made one very brief appearance in The Wrong Arms yesterday at just after 7.30pm (Rome time). There was no interaction with any of the locals, nor any visits to the Ladies Room, he merely quoted what would appear to be the lyrics of Dawn's Track 14, Last of a Foul Brood:

Fed poison from childhood
Drip fed dead eyed abuse
Drop by drop and drip by drip
You can still taste the bitterness now

Never knowing how to be loved
And you always assumed that you
Were the last of a foul brood

Fed abuse from boyhood
Castigated and upbraided
Dripping in cruelty

Poor infant flowers destroyed
By adult hands before they could bloom
And you always assumed that you
Were the last of a foul brood

You used to dream of love but
Now you know you were made for the grave
As you're the last of a foul brood

Mocked by god so you laugh at man
Now you run with coat billowing in the wind
The last of a foul brood

No doubt this is yet another spoof set of lyrics, but I have to say, I really do LOVE them, and could seriously see it as a Moz song.

I decided to have a go at making up some song titles of my own, and managed to reel off 11 of them within about 30 seconds - it's easy. Dawn responded to my titles saying:

"OM has instructed me to inform you that he is howling at your incompetence. Both at song titles and your journalistic endeavours.

Each man reaps what he sows and you have sowed sh*t."

I replied, "Hmm, I'm not the one who has to come up with a new masterpiece. Let's hope the old codger hasn't lost it when it comes to real titles and real songs. The world is watching", to which Dawn came back with:

"OM does not consider the population of Runcorn as the world."

Day 2205 - The fastest plumber in Manchester

As I lay in the communal garden of my bedsit on Sunday morning topping-up my rather wonderful 'Summer '17 tan' whilst listening to Hatful of Hollow, it suddenly occurred to me that Morrissey could greatly benefit from letting me listen to the songs on his new LP, so that I could give him my honest critique. I therefore dropped him a short message via Twitter's Direct Messaging service asking him to email me the songs "without delay".
Image result for hairy back sunbathing

Twelve hours later, as I wrapped-up my sunbathing session for the day, it suddenly occurred to me how naive I had been in making such a request to Morrissey - I just hadn't thought through the consequences. What if I got sent the songs, and then someone somewhere leaked the album onto the internet. Who would get the blame? That's right, yours truly. I grabbed my phone and sent another message to say that I had changed my mind, and requested Monsieur Morrissey not to send the songs after all.

At 1.40am (Rome time) on Monday morning, I received the following reply:

"I was not going to. But now you have requested not to, I just may."

This morning, at 2.13am (Rome time), I received another message as follows:

Track listing

1. Barbed wire is no cure for the truth

2. Drummers and accountants

3. Loathsome lawyers and lonely litigants

4. Mud slinging names stick like frost

5. Picking roses from the dozens

6. The fastest plumber in Manchester

7. Derma filler is no excuse for looking like that

8. Thump the table

9. Bed of distrust

10. Judy was a drunk

11. Intolerance of liberalism

12. There is no twelve 

Bonus track

Hair loss is nothing to be snipped at

The original track three was listed as 'Lonely lawyers and loathsome litigants', but I received a follow-up message saying, "Edit track 3. Should be loathsome lawyers and lonely litigants'." - Even when making up a parody track list, the man is a perfectionist!

Day 2201 - "I must say. I'm rather excited" - Rome is where the art is

Morrissey (as Morfessa) returned to The Wrong Arms yesterday for a five minute period, between 2.25pm (Rome time) and 2.30pm, and posted the following:

"Bent on revenge. Bent on getting even."

"The mortal sickness of the mind and I'm never unhappy to be unkind. So I look at you and I wish you ill."

"Lay down in your bed of rust"

"Let their filthy voices sing 'God save the queen', an anthem for the nation. But we spit on the land we perish for. Then we turn to God."



To me, these looked like song lyrics - very good ones at that, but when I replied to the 'bed of rust' tweet, asking if it was a lyric, I got the reply (at 4.22pm Rome time): "It is not. It will not be. The strength of other lines will render this powerless."

I added that I really liked the 'bed of rust' line, to which I got the reply: "Well you would. You are already accustomed to the idea."

Image result for man and woman asleep backs to each other

A couple of hours later (at around 7.40pm Rome time), whilst I was powdering my nose in the Ladies, Morfessa came in and said, "Remind me. What was The Scenestar's password the other after-evening?"

The answer was, as Morfessa fully knows, "LYRIC'. This leads to two questions:
A) Was Morrissey in cahoots with the people at The Scenestar to issue 'Fake News', and
B) Are those tweets of earlier really new lyrics?
I would guess that the answer to the first question has to be YES, otherwise, where on earth did The Scenestar get that password from, and the answer to the second question must surely be NO... surely?.... I mean, he just wouldn't.... would he?

Image result for morrissey mischievous

Morfessa returned to the main bar of The Arms at 10.30pm (Rome time) to reply to an old tweet of mine, in which I had stated that I didn't think Joe Chiccarelli was not producing the new LP, and asked who was? Morfessa replied, "Dawn."

I'm pretty sure that I was wrong about Chiccarelli, because he actually posted a tweet featuring a picture of Sophia Loren back on June 4th along with the words, "Inspirational walls in my summertime studio locale"..... Joe's in Rome!




Just after 11.30pm (12.30am Rome time), Morfessa posted another tweet in my DM box:

"Plausible side"

I didn't see it until 7.30 this morning, when I asked, "Is this a song title?" and then answered it myself stating, "Of course it isn't!" Morfessa replied (at 8.47am Rome time), "Would I tease?" followed by, "I must say. I'm rather excited." And so are we!

Image result for morrissey happy

The teasing continued later in the morning with these tweets, which again look like lyrics:

"Are you a fool or a madman? Is there a difference, can you even tell?"

"You've written the story of your life and at the end you realised that you never truly lived."

"I am a grain of sand thrown about by an unknown hand."

Morrissey returned again later this evening to chastise those in power regarding the Grenfell Tower fire:

"Westminster elite do not care. They are safely tucked away. High rise horror a Ballard ideal for them."

"Death for no reason is MURDER"

"The establishment is weak. Freezer Clay will be gone soon. It's up for grabs. Take control. Take power."

I had no idea who Ballard was, but good old Google informs me that J G Ballard was a novelist who wrote a book called High Rise - hence the reference to him regarding Grenfell Tower.

And finally, The Queen is Dead was released today as a 12 inch single and 7 inch picture disc. Next Friday, it will be Number 1 in the Official UK Vinyl Chart - the very first Smiths/Moz Number 1 single.

Day 2200 - Titbits

Romina last night left a comment on my blog entry of Tuesday saying, "Morrissey is truly busy, all day long in the studio and just a little walk before dinner....shssss".

I now have this image in my head of Romina's net curtains twitching, as she sits at the window of her small apartment in Rome, watching every coming and going from the recording studio.

Image result for gina lollobrigida AT WINDOW

Morrissey may well be truly busy all day recording his latest masterpiece, but he still took the time to briefly make contact with the BRS in The Wrong Arms last night, and I also caught up with him in the ladies.

At just after 8pm (9pm Rome time), Morrissey, as Morfessa, tapped me on the shoulder whilst I was powdering my nose and said, "It's almost more satisfying to direct message you titbits."

This was an obvious reference to my recent blog entries, where I (and others) have been trying - without success - to make sense of all the strange happenings of late. I am SO glad that our cluelessness is providing His Mozship with some entertainment.

TITBIT PROVIDER

Moz returned to the Ladies Room at 10.55pm (11.55pm Rome time) and rhetorically asked, "Is there a third surprise?" before adding, "June. June. June...".

Ten minutes later and he was in the main bar of The Wrong Arms, where he quoted the following words from the song, Nowhere Fast:

"The poor and the needy are selfish and greedy on her terms."

Goodness only knows if that song quote is supposed to mean anything - yet another riddle!
As for the "third surprise", I think we've already had three surprises: A) the hint of a new label, b) the hint of a new LP, and C) the hint of a new concert. Could we be about to see the release of a single in June? Or perhaps the announcement of a full tour? Who knows? Who knows? Who knows?

Day 2199 - "Do you still believe everything you read?"

There are some strange happenings going on in Morrissey land! Here is a brief resumé:

On Friday evening, as reported on FTM on Saturday, Morrissey sent me a private tweet to ask, "Do you still believe everything you read?" I had no idea what he was going on about, and when I asked him to explain, he simply replied, "Everything you don't read."

Image result for morrissey reading

On Saturday morning, I woke up to find that Morrissey's nephew, Sam, had posted a mock up poster of a Morrissey concert at the Hollywood Bowl. With Morrissey's words of Friday still on my mind, I wondered if perhaps Sam's poster was 'fake news', posted just to see if everyone believed everything they read, but I also wondered if perhaps Morrissey had been referring to something else, such as the rumoured new record deal. I sent Mozzer another tweet to ask what he was referring to when he had asked me about believing everything I read, but again I received no reply.

On Monday, it looked like I had been wrong to be suspicious of Sam's poster, as LA music website, The Scenestar announced:

Morrissey will perform under the stars at the Hollywood Bowl on Friday, November 10. It is his first time back at the historic venue 2007. Tickets to see the former Smiths frontman at the Hollywood Bowl will go on sale on Friday, June 16, at 10:00 a.m via Ticketmaster. There is a Live Nation presage on Thursday, June 15, at 10:00 a.m. Password: LYRIC.

Pretty conclusive. It was on!

Image result for morrissey hollywood bowl

Yesterday evening at 5.40, Morrissey eventually replied to my question of Saturday, tweeting, "Hollywood", followed by, "You'll see". I had no idea what these words meant, but had no time to ask, as I had a cricket match starting at 6.

When I returned home at 9pm, I read a comment posted on FTM by Heather (timed at 5.53pm) that Nephew Sam had removed his Instagram post with the poster, and The Scenestar had removed their article about ticket sales!!!

WHAT is going on? Is this concert happening, or is it not happening, and WHAT game is it that Morrissey is playing? Is this all about proving that people shouldn't believe everything they read, or is it a publicity stunt to get people talking about the concert, so that when it is officially announced, it generates more ticket sales? I guess we'll find out soon.

And finally, yesterday's FTM entry had the lowest number of hits since the very early days of FTM, when it was just me writing for myself. This has made me smile. Oh, the fools.

Day 2198 - Back to the Bowl

There has been no sign of Morrissey in The Wrong Arms since Friday night, but there has been confirmation that the rumoured Hollywood Bowl concert is going ahead on November 10th, so the excitement that had been coming from the LA Mexicans based on those rumours hasn't been wasted, and Morrissey will be going back to the Bowl for the third time.

Image result for mozziah blue rose mexicans
BRS LA MEXICAN BRANCH - EXCITED, AND RIGHTLY SO

I still find it strange that True-To-You.net is on the poster, when that website is no longer being used. What I don't find strange, is that Morrissey Facebook is also on the poster, even though Morrissey denied that he had a Facebook account. The reason that I don't find this strange, is because Morrissey also denied that he had a blog, and that he was on Twitter, but they turned out to be little untruths too.... not that anyone outside the BRS or DDD has managed to work that out yet! Is it too much to hope that just one of those Morrissey fans who dismissed the MorrisseysWorld blog and Twitter accounts as a hoax based on Morrissey's denial now has a lightbulb moment, and realises that perhaps, just perhaps...


IT'S ON!

Much as though I would love to go to LA, and much as though I would love to see a concert in the Hollywood Bowl, and much as though I would love to see Morrissey in the Hollywood Bowl, I won't be going. I will just have to wait until the tour comes to the UK, or at least somewhere a little closer to home.

Whilst on the subject of concerts, I must mention a thought that struck me on Sunday night, as I watched Rod Stewart conclude his headlining performance at the Isle of Wight Festival. I'd never seen Rod in concert before, but just presumed that he would finish his performance with Sailing, which he did. Likewise, when I watched The Pretenders on Friday night, I presumed that they would finish with Brass In Pocket, which again, they did - with Chrissie Hynde even making some reference about it being the one that everyone had been waiting for. The thought that struck me, as I stood there in that field on Sunday, was that Morrissey doesn't have that one song that most people at a festival would be waiting for.... and I like that.

Image result for morrissey festival
UNPREDICTABLE

And whilst on the subject of being struck by thoughts, earlier today it suddenly occurred to me that the words given to me by Morfessa last Friday; which I wrote about in my last blog entry, might, just might, be lyrics from a new song.... but then again they might not!

*Goes off singing* Do you still believe everything you read? And do you still believe everything you don't read?

Day 2195 - No reply!

Any thoughts that I may have had of avoiding the news yesterday morning quickly disappeared as my Twitter feed started to fill with comments from Labour supporters who were very excited that Terrible Theresa had been humiliated at the polls by good old Jezza.



The excitement turned out to be nothing more than false hope, because although the Tory party lost 13 seats; which meant that they didn't have an overall majority, Muddler Theresa quickly did a deal with the bigoted Irish party, the DUP, and formed a Government before luncheon. What is more, despite all the media and the Labour supporters crowing how it had been a disaster for the Tories, their percentage of the overall vote actually INCREASED, which means that worryingly, they have become more popular with the British electorate than ever. The likes of Owen Jones don't seem to have realised this, they are only seeing what they want to see.

The whole British media and public are misreading the result of the General Dejection, because they seem to think the writing is on the wall for the Tories, but all that has actually happened is that the UKIP vote fell apart - which was obviously going to happen, as their job has been completed - and those who voted UKIP IN 2015, returned to the traditional parties of Labour and Conservative - particularly Labour in the north of England. We also saw some Londoners who are annoyed that Brexit is happening switch to Labour, but the likes of Zac Goldsmith got back in, so it all balanced itself out. Effectively, NOTHING has changed - even the cabinet is exactly as it was before.

So then, as we were. Back to Moz.

Yesterday evening, Morrissey (as Morfessa) made his first appearance in the public bar of The Wrong Arms since May 27, as he came to give his take on the result of the General Election. I wasn't present, as yesterday evening I was stood in a field watching the Kaiser Chiefs, Alison Moyet and The Pretenders - all of whom were really very good. Morfessa posted three tweets:

"Diabetes Abbott was Corbyn's fatal mistake."

"Freezer May had her get out of jail free card all along. Hashtag DUPCoalition"

"First the banks controlled the government. Now the media controls the government. Keep voting until the minority get their way."

Morrissey shares my dislike of the dreadfully inept Hackney MP, Diane Abbot, but her constituents obviously love her because despite all her gaffes, she was re-elected with a huge majority. She certainly doesn't help the overall Labour cause, but in reality, as much as I like Jeremy Corbyn, he too will never appeal to enough people to ever become Prime Minister.

DIABETES ABBOTT - ALWAYS GOES OFF 'SICK' AFTER A GAFFE

Although yesterday was Morfessa's first appearance in the public bar for a fortnight, I did have a brief exchange with her on Thursday afternoon in the Ladies Room:

ME: Did you have a choice of Sanctuary owned labels? If so, what made you choose Trojan particularly?

MORFESSA: No reply! (A reference to my blog entry of Thursday - As Eric Morecambe used to say, "I suppose you think that's funny?")

ME: B*****d! Our relationship is so one sided. I give and I give and I give and I give.

MORFESSA: I've given you much more.

ME: I guess I can't argue with that.... I owe you so much... can I pay in monthly instalments? Anyway, let me try again, why Trojan?

MORFESSA: Why not?

I shall now give up on the label front!

Morfessa returned to the Ladies Room a little later and tweeted:

"Strange how the Facebook account is acceptable. Perhaps it'll close like a Twitter account."

I replied, "People would think that it was fake after all, and that you'd had it shut down."

I don't imagine for one minute that the Facebook account will close. It has now taken over from True-To-You.

And whilst on the subject of True-To-You, Morrissey's nephew Sam has posted a mocked-up poster on his Instagram account of a Morrissey concert at the Hollywood Bowl on November 10th. No one seems to know if this is real or fake news. The fact that True-To-You is written on the poster would tend to suggest it is fake, but who knows! It's certainly getting the LA Mexicans excited.




Back to Morfessa. I had another brief encounter in that Ladies Room of The Wrong Arms yesterday evening:

MORFESSA: Do you still believe everything you read?

ME: ?.... What are you referring to?

MORFESSA: Everything you don't read.

ME: I don't understand your riddles. You're going to have to spell it out to me.

There has so far been no reply!




MORRISSEY IN ROME.... HEADING TO THE WRONG ARMS


And finally, a very youthful looking, slimmed down, Boz Boorer has posted a photo on his Instagram account of himself inside the Forum Music Village recording studio in Rome, holding a photo of a new Queen is Dead 12 inch single, which is apparently being released as an HMV exclusive this coming Friday. No Smiths singles for 25 years and then we get two in two months. Lovely.

Day 2193 - Labels

Following on from the publication of yesterday's FTM, I received a surprise visit from Morfessa whilst I was in the ladies room of The Wrong Arms touching up my lippy. She tapped me on my shoulder - I only have the one - and said, "I believe I also mentioned "labels" to you." And then she was gone.

Image result for backstage drag queens

I scratched my head for a minute, wondering what Morfessa was referring to, and then scrolled back through my Twitter DM messages, where I found the answer.

On Sunday April 16th, Morfessa had contacted me with regard to the lack of comments on the exclusive FTM interview with Morrissey that I had published that day. Whilst we were conversing, Morfessa randomly threw in a mention of "labels". It was completely out of context with the conversation, and made no sense. I guess I now know that it was a hint that Morrissey had a new record label. Here is the transcript of that DM conversation:

MORFESSA: Only three comments. Why do we bother? All accounts shall close if there are not 50 comments by tomorrow.

ME: I just don't understand what is wrong with people.

MORFESSA: Labels. They instantly label themselves talking to myself.

ME: ?

MORFESSA: (No reply)

ME: You talk in riddles. Are there ongoing talks with a label? Please say there is, don't say there's not...

MORFESSA: Pardon?

ME: Eh?

MORFESSA: (No reply)

ME: What do you mean that someone labels themselves by talking to you?

MORFESSA: (No reply)

Image result for trojan record label

I have nothing else to add today, except to mention that Italy usually ranks at Number 10 for the number of hits on FTM, but it is currently Number 4. I guess the only explanation is that Romina has been reading through old FTM classics!

WEDNESDAY'S FTM TOP 10 FOR VIEWS:

1. USA
2. UK
3. Germany (Hi Chuck.... let it go!)
4. Italy
5. Netherlands (Hi Inge... yes, it really IS him... still!)

Day 2192 - "It's on!"

When Morrissey (as @seminalartiste) tweeted, "June, June, June" on Sunday April 9th, we Dreary Deluded Dozen knew that it was a hint that something Moz related would be happening in June, but what none of us expected; well I certainly didn't, was that it would be....... THE RECORDING OF A NEW F***ING ALBUM! *Blows trumpet, lets off party poppers, and begins to dance around the kitchen in just a pair of pants*

Last Friday the Morrissey Official Facebook page posted the message, "It's on!", and included a photo of Morrissey outside Pizzeria La Montecarlo in Rome. This led to us fans asking ourselves, WHAT exactly is on, the pizza oven?, but more photos have since emerged of Moz and all of his band members in and around Rome, so it doesn't take a genius to deduce what it is that is ON! *Jigs around again*

40160_pizzeria_la_montegarlo_2017.jpg
MORRISSEY IN ROME - "IT'S ON!"

I am presuming that the recording is taking place at Forum Music Village, which is where the Number 1 album, Ringleader of the Tormentors was recorded twelve years ago.

This will be the 11th studio album of Morrissey's 30 year solo career, and will be his first on the Trojan record label. The Trojan label has never had a Number 1 LP before, so as long as Morrissey can avoid releasing the new album at the same time as Dread Beer-run, Justin Babbler or any of the other 'Stream-agers', then perhaps Moz can achieve his first No1 for over a decade, and a first for Trojan.

There has been no sign of Moz in The Wrong Arms in the past week - I guess he's busy! - so I shall now return to the glorious cricket fields of southern England. I shan't be voting in tomorrow's General Dejection, and shall have my television off all day on Friday as Terrible Theresa and the Tories celebrate their landslide victory.

Day 2184 - Minutes of the FTM Bans Committee 29.5.17


Image result for twitterdilly arms pub mozziah


The setting is the public bar of The Wrong Arms - the world's Number 1 Online Morrissey theme pub. Present are: Our Mozzer (seminal artist), Mikey Bracewell (former author and friend to the seminal artist, Morrissey), Boz Boorer (musician), TRB (author of the the 1 million+ viewed blog thingy, Following The Mozziah (FTM)), Heather (Blue Rose Society (BRS) member), EARS (BRS member), comrade harps (BRS member), Manc Lad (resident drunk), Romina (Italian), JG (friend of the show).

OM, Bracewell and Boorer are sat around a small table, away from the others, who are grouped around the bar. TRB is sat alone at a larger table. He stands up.

TRB: (addressing the room) Thank you all for coming. If it's all right with Our Mozzer, we'll get this meeting under way. Could you all please come and take a seat.

OM: (addressing Bracewell and Boorer) Who is that rather annoying slap head, and why is he mentioning my name?

BRACEWELL: His name's Rat. He runs that dreary blogsite I showed you, Following the Mozziah.

OM: I don't recall. Is it any good?

BOZ: No!

OM: I really have no idea why I let you two bring me here. What does he want from me?

BRACEWELL: He wrote to you requesting that you give advice on who to ban from posting comments on his blog. I replied to say that you have no interest what-so-ever, but then he offered to pay.

OM: What an odd little man. Still, with no current income other than the odd t-shirt sale from the old M Porium, I guess we can't afford to turn down such easy money.

BOZ: As my muvver always used to say, never look a hobby horse in the mouth.

Bracewell and OM both roll their eyes.

OM: Let's get on with it then. I haven't got long, I've a four hour eyebrow steaming session this afternoon.

Everybody takes a seat at the table.

TRB: Heather, would you be kind enough to take notes please?

BOZ: (shaking his head) Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear, Mozzer doesn't like any of that old clichéd chauvinistic claptrap, let's have a male secretary (looks at Manc lad), you, you can take notes.

OM: No, Boz, you're falling into the same trap that those other 'right on' musos, such as Willy Wragg and Rossinister have fallen into. We'll have none of that politically correct nonsense here. And what is more, that Manc lad character can barely grip a pen, let alone point it in the right direction and make it write. Let's keep Heather as secretary, she's the only one here who looks even barely compos mentis.

BRACEWELL: Always two steps ahead, Morr-ee-say, always two steps ahead.

BOZ: I liked him.

OM: (looking perplexed) Who, Boz?

BOZ: Compo. He was by far my favourite character in that Last of the Summer Wine programme. I never knew he liked mints though. It was never the same once Captain Peacock joined.

OM shakes his head. Bracewell rolls his eyes.

OM: Mikey, can you please instruct the pin headed baldy guy to get on with this meeting.

Bracewell nods his head at TRB.

TRB: Right then, Heather, are you ready to take notes?

HEATHER: Ready and waiting.

COMRADE HARPS: Sycophant!

HEATHER: Sorry?

HARPS: (stands up, takes out a piece of paper, and begins reading) Why do you lot always do everything Moz tells you to do? Everyone's the same, it's just one big group think around here. I'm a free thinker, when I think Morrissey says something that is wrong, I'm not afraid to say so, where as all the other BRS members just agree with every word he ever says, and when Moz says jump, you all just say, how high. I'm a free thinker-

JG: -You said that bit.

HARPS: Oh yeah, thanks, er, (runs his finger along his scripted words, and continues to read) I agree with Martin now, and don't let anyone else influence me.

OM: Boz, what have you been saying?

Boz looks vacant.

TRB: If I may, Moz-

BRACEWELL: -it's Morr-ee-say.

TRB: If I may, er, Morr-ee-say, I think Comrade Herpes is referring to Martin Rossiter, not Martin, I mean, er, Boz.

OM: You've lost me, and I must add, that I am very quickly losing the will to live - if ever such a will existed.

TRB: You see, Harps here got rather upset when someone accused him of being a sycophant the other day, so he started aiming pot shots at you on my blog in an attempt to prove that he wasn't one. He then turned on me too, so I banned the cunt.

OM: You've got no right to ban anyone without my say so. Only I have the authority to ban.

HARPS: Don't listen to him, Rat, you don't have to do everything he says. Stick to your guns.

TRB: Too right, he's banned.

OM: No he's not.

HARPS: Yes I am.

OM: (looking at Harps for the first time) Sit down, and be quiet.

HARPS: (sitting down quickly) Yes, sir, sorry sir, I didn't mean to cause offence. I'm a pacifist. Years of Refusal is a masterpiece. England for the English. Australia for the-

OM: -Do stop blabbering, you bearded buffoon. (to Bracewell) Mikey, can you please hurry this along.

Bracewell glares at TRB.

Image result for michael bracewell

TRB: Right then, let's get to the bans.

HEATHER: Am I supposed to have written anything down yet, or has the meeting not started, it's just that there's already been talk of bans.

BRACEWELL: JUST GET ON WITH IT.

TRB: Er, right then, I would like to propose life bans for the following people.

OM: No, no, no. Your readership is already down to single figures, you can't afford to go dishing out life bans to anyone, especially as your readership is also my readership these days.
In the early days of MorrisseysWorld, hundreds would flock to read my witty creations, but the last parody piece that I wrote at Christmas for the True Morrissey site only had a handful of people read it, and that's all because of you, Rat. Your failure to hold on to readers is damaging my career.

TRB: With all due respect, you can hardly talk. Each time you release one of your statements, or give an interview to the press, you halve your fan base. If there's any more mention of sub species, Norwegian KFCs or petrified private sayings, then you'll soon have no fans left.

ROMINA: What ever is said, there wheel always bee the Mexicans.

Everyone in the room nods, and mutters agreement.

BRACEWELL: Rat, I think you had better sit down, and be quiet.

OM: No, it's alright, Mikey, let him say his piece, he obviously has a lot to get off that pigeon chest of his. Carry on, Rat.

TRB: I've, er, finished.

OM: You certainly are. I hereby ban you for two weeks. You can carry on writing your silly blog, if you really must, but do not write anything in the comments section.

EARS: (to Heather) It's going to look pretty empty, most of the comments on FTM are left by Rat.

OM: Right then, I think we've concluded our business here, so I'm off for a glass of Veuve before this afternoon's session.

JG: (to Boz) A recording session?

BOZ: Er, something like that.

OM heads towards to door.

TRB: (calling after Moz) We haven't discussed the bans of the others. What about Marcus, and GOB, and Lizzy, and MerryAnne, and Chuck, and what about those other annoying people who leave comments that I always delete, should I leave them, or carry on deleting them? Oh, and were you the one who commented as Child's Heart?

OM doesn't look round or reply, and leaves The Arms.

COMRADE HARPS: And what about me?

Day 2183 - "Let art be art"

On Friday I wrote how, in the aftermath of Monday's bombing in Manchester, some of Morrissey's fans had turned on him, all because he had issued an angered statement condemning politicians for failing to protect the people. It would appear that these so called Morrissey fans didn't like the fact that Morrissey was pointing the finger of blame at someone, and daring to suggest that there is a problem.

In their desperate attempt to be 'right on' and politically correct, these people don't want to  discuss how to address the problem of Islamic terrorists continually bombing the western world, they just want to offer prayers and sympathy, but even so, as to why they have felt the need to denounce their Morrissey fandom is beyond all rationale.

People have tried to turn this latest Morrissey statement into a, "racist rant", but I have read it a dozen times now, and there really isn't even a hint of racism in the words, but because Morrissey has been accused of racism in the past, people are looking for anything that might prove the NME were right - even though the NME were actually forced to apologise for their false allegations. The 'Morrissey is a racist' story is old, and incredibly dull, but it goes on.

The good news is, that although the bullshit rumbles on, Morrissey (as Morfessa) returned to Twitter late on Saturday night, albeit to tweet just one sentence:

"Let art be art"

I am presuming that this tweet is a reference to the fact that, not content with looking for racism in Morrissey's statement of Tuesday, those aforementioned so called fans have now once again started reaching into Morrissey's back catalogue of songs to prove he is racist. As I mentioned on Friday, the former singer of pop group Gene, Martin Rossiter, is one of those to denounce Morrissey last week, and one of the reasons he states, is that he finds the song The National Front Disco 'opaque' in it's racism. For fucks sake.

I decided to take to Twitter to debate with Rossiter, but it was a waste of time, as he started bringing up other nonsense, like the 'Chines subspecies' crap. BRS member, Comrade Harps, joined me in suggesting to Rossiter that he had mis-read The National Front Disco, but after just one reply from Rossiter, Harps become all star struck, and apologised.

MARTIN ROSSITER - NONSENSE

Whilst on the subject of old Harps, he was recently accused of being a sycophant by someone in the comment section of FTM, so in a desperate attempt to prove that he isn't, he took to the comments section of my previous FTM article to have a go at Morrissey, stick up for his new mate Rossiter, and for good measure, take a swipe at me. He also sent me a Twitter DM to call all those who comment on FTM the, "FTM groupthink". Harps is above us all.

Billy Bragg was another of those who took a pop at Morrissey last week, so I took to Twitter to inform him he was a fool for having a go at Morrissey just because Moz issued a statement of anger. Bragg replied, "we're all angered by attack on MCR, but M's failure to recognise murder of Jo Cox by a fascist is crass". WHAT? I mean, WHAT? Is Billy Bragg actually thicker than I originally thought? So, it would appear that Bragg's real problem here, is that an MP murdered in Yorkshire in a completely unrelated incident a year ago, didn't get a a name check by Morrissey. By Bragg's logic, if Paul McCartney were to criticise the police for not doing their job properly in protecting Liverpudlians at Hillsborough in 1985, it would be crass unless he mentioned the murder of PC Geoffrey Fox who was shot in London in 1966. I felt the need to point out to Bragg that Jo Cox wasn't murdered by a mass murdering Islamic bomber, which was the topic Morrissey was commenting about. Bragg didn't reply - well what could he have possibly said anyway?

BRAGG - THICK


I am now bored stiff of all the anti-Moz crap from the past week, but it has inspired me to write a parody piece, which I shall publish tomorrow - my first in a very long tome.

Finally, Morrissey also tweeted to me via Twitter's direct messaging on Saturday night to reply to the goodwill birthday message that I had sent him on Monday. He tweeted, "Worthless to me now."

The bombing of Monday may have caused Morrissey anger, but the reaction of those so called fans has obviously caused much pain. How many blows must one man take? However, not every Moz fan has run to the hills, and those of us not scared of being called apologists, sycophants, or any other name for that matter, remain - true to Moz.

*Goes off singing* So, hand in glove I stake my claim, I'll fight to the last breath, if they dare touch a hair on your head, I'll fight to the last breath.

Day 2180 - Child's Heart

Can nothing go right when it comes to Morrissey's career? He must surely be thinking this, for in the week that he hints at a new record deal, instead of his fans celebrating, a vast number have taken to social media to denounce him, and all because he made a very short statement criticising politicians for failing to protect his beloved Manchester from a terrorist attack. You really, really couldn't make this up.

The ridiculousness of this situation is best summed up by a comment left yesterday on FTM by someone using the name 'Child's Heart'. The commenter has stated that they are not Morrissey, but they would say that, and I'm not sure that I believe them, but whoever it is, they seem to have a handle on the situation. Here is the comment:


God grant me patience. If I had "fans" like the embarrassingly naïve, semi-illiterate, no-brains, know-nothing, vacuum-of-knowledge encapsulated stragglers that poor Morrissey has on M-Solo, denouncing him, and denouncing their fandom for this most recent statement… I would be rolling my eyes to high heaven and back. 

And if I were Morrissey, which I am not, I would then post another FB statement, telling them all to make sure to not let the door hit them on their way out. 

I also find it interesting that I had to slog through 14 pages before I gave up, of puerile and mostly completely uneducated pseudo-political nonsense, and nowhere, in all of those 17 pages, has anyone mentioned the ongoing of persecution of Christians in the Middle East. 

I mention that this point has not even ever been mentioned - only because there are people accusing and blaming every single atrocity of terrorist violence that has ever happened, on everything from American foreign policy (and nothing but), to oft-alleged endemic racism, to mental illness, to displaced youths, and on anything and everything from having had eggs for breakfast to wearing blue socks. 

But it's apparently not OK for anyone to say anything against radical Islam, or against the murder of little girls; the very poor argument in retort being that little Middle Eastern girls have also been previously murdered as well. It's apparently not OK to say that murders are being committed in the name of Islam, OR that there even ARE Christians that are being butchered on a daily basis and being bombed to high heaven and back in the Middle East, - and who have been since the beginning of time. The sad truth is this isn't ever mentioned, because most people don't even know. 

I see ill-informed Americans. I see ill-informed Brits, and South Americans, and Europeans. Naïve, Western busybody do-gooders, doing no good anywhere, for anyone. I see people commenting and expressing very vocal opinions, based on "knowledge" they've gleaned about world affairs and political history from…apparently, Facebook and their MSN homepages. And from Hillary's campaign. The only people who were ever "With Her", were people whose understanding of "world affairs" extended as far as accepting anything she said without question - because most people aren't bright enough to know anything outside of their own immediate house-to-work commute, or at best, the latest CNN or BBC headline. 

We have a very, very sad state of affairs in the Occident these days, and all manner of apologies continue to be made - by people who are frankly unqualified and uninformed enough to be able to make the even most basic political assertions, without sounding like the completely uneducated, sheltered, and provincial hee-haws that they are. Intellect and a sophisticated political understanding of world events, world history, and religious history is nowhere to be found. The Media is everyone's best False God, and people's DIS-understanding of what is going on around them, is as far as I can see, truly without end. 

To anyone looking in from the sidelines, don't take your political bias from the media and from your friends. Equally, strive to be intelligent enough to not pick and choose your political stance or understanding of world events based on nothing but people like Uncle Skinny's incessant bleating and random accusations and insults against anyone in his line of sight. There is zero content. Every time I've ever been on that site in my life and read his juvenile insults and ridiculously naïve diatribes, all I've ever felt is - extreme pity for his children. How embarrassing it must be to be related to such a bumbling oaf, who simply blinds everyone and everything in his shit-hued path, with his ever-misplaced and eternally glowing self-righteousness. It's very sad especially, for all those who don't know how to think for themselves. And that those numbers will only ever continue to grow, it goes without saying. 


Misplaced political correctness is a sly, insidious foe. And one which people still fail to condemn, and use all of their energy to deny is as much of a contributor to the problem, - as is that diseased ideology which is the heart of the problem itself. Political correctness has been used and abused, and turned into a farce. A charade. And political correctness is now the mocking, lone squawking battle cry of the deaf, the dumb, and of the uninformed. 

It is not in Morrissey's job description to have to enlighten people who couldn't be bothered to take the time to enlighten themselves, about their own current geopolitical conditions and their own country's economic maneuverings, or about the consequences of any given country's foreign policy and its subsequent wider reaching international ramifications. Therefore, as I'm in a benevolent mood today - allow me to help on this note. The British power grid is owned by the French government. The rail network is owned by the German government. The Chinese government controls British nuclear power stations. And guess who owns all the property? Oh that's right, the Arabs. So lest there's anyone left who still thinks Britain has any real power in the world, let's just say, they're truly deluded beyond belief. Would you like to be fucked by Merkel? Step right this way. Oh, what's that, you say? You'd actually prefer Macron? No problem at all! And you, Madame? You say you've been thinking about what it would be like to be suck some Arab cock? Well, I have excellent news for you today! You've already been doing so all along! 

Meanwhile, Trump is in Saudi Arabia being a sales rep for U.S. arms manufacturers, who make hundreds of billions of dollars out of peddling their arms to the Saudis. Then literally the same day, already bragging that he secured a $350 billion dollar deal in future sales. Peddling arms to the Saudis, the exact same as Hillary would have done, had she won. And the exact same as all of his predecessors have done, and as every British Prime Minister has likewise also done. The same Saudis, in the meantime, are funding the Islamic State. And it is the same Saudis who are arming them, and who are training the terrorists and funding their attacks, and yes, it is the same Saudis who are also spreading extremist propaganda throughout the Western world and building mosques throughout all of Europe. 

At the same time, we have unprecedented mass migration from Africa as well as from the Middle East, - with only the absolute most naïve of all the naïve, still claiming that we are dealing with a "refugee" crisis. The uninformed, unfortunately, always seem to have the collective loudest voice. However this is not a "refugee" crisis. Let's be clear: this is Organized Mass Migration. Certain factions have already spent hundreds or millions of dollars, to ensure the success of this collective mass organized movement. You didn't really think, that 3,000 - 5,000 people per day, every day, are being collected off the coast of Italy from their "sinking" dinghies, with people smugglers who just "happen" to have the Sicilian Coast Guard's number saved on their mobile phones? Or that suddenly, all of Sudan and ALL of Somalia, and ALL of Eritrea, just all at once, got the idea to ALL suddenly come to Europe? These people lived in mud huts until last week, and hadn't even heard of Europe. Soros should be in jail. Soros was also the one who financially backed, and thus ensured the most brutal war ever seen on European soil in modern history, in the former Yugoslavia. Nothing, nothing, NOTHING, is ever a coincidence. Of this, you can always be sure. But it's very easy for the people's False God (Media), to deflect all attention from what is really going on in the world, and to instead tell us to count how many buttons Obama has unbuttoned on his shirt on his current Tuscan golfing holiday, or to show us how Drippy Pippa is now married to An Even Bigger Drip. 


Politicians, and the False God Media, are both controlled by people who are even more power hungry, and even bigger uncontrolled egomaniacs, than the mere public face of their orchestrations and the puppets (figureheads) at the end of their puppet-strings. Politicians want to keep the common man down, and to keep him line. That is all. There ARE implementable, viable solutions to some of these complicated situations, but I see no one, anywhere, even asking the right questions yet. 

The destabilization of the Middle East is certainly in the favor of the major Western superpowers, but make no mistake, the destabilization of Europe is also a very well calculated, VERY well financed, concerted collective effort. Merkel and Macron are pawns in the wider effort - while the general population knows nothing, and thinks the major political battles actually ARE, about which party is willing to spend to how much on healthcare, or what Drippy Pippa's next Very Drippy Endeavor is going to be… need I go on? 

For people who are more intricately versed in world politics with a profound knowledge of world history, who are not just superficially familiar with what the West has done over the last 200 years, and who have a substantively more sophisticated grasp of what is really going on in the world geopolitically, it is certainly disconcerting, at best, to see the nonsense epithets continually being launched and lobbed, with Morrissey's head as the favored target. 

I was happy to see, for a change, much support via certain outlets for Morrissey's very short statement - whilst the dregs at the bottom of the proverbial pond, and at Solow, … well, let's just say, - nothing lost there. In that knowledge, we can assuredly all sleep soundly. 

It was a very heartfelt and a wholly appropriate statement from Moz. How ANYBODY could criticize a statement, which was made in defence of dead children who died a horrific and violent murdered death in a public venue that so many of us have also been to - and a statement which was made in support of the victims, their families, and an entire city which is on its knees right now, is simply beyond understanding. 

Anyone who was directing their outrage anywhere other than at the fact that such backward inbred sewer rats caused such destruction and such unfathomable pain - with zero consequences, no less - should have their entire psychiatric state professionally reassessed. I'm also sorry Morrissey has to deal with such idiocy on such an absolutely perpetual basis. 

Sadly, no words can undo anything that has been done. But hopefully, the support and love extended can help cradle a city that has been rocked and devastated. Because that love and support extended, and some tender words, are the only way we have left to pay tribute to the innocent who were murdered. 

All hearts are definitely with Manchester right now. 

Cradled in the arms and in the bosom of a city that wanted to protect you. Sleep, sweetest children of this barren spring. You'll know no more harm now. 

With Manchester in love and loss, today. In love eternal, ever

The author of the above statement; who is obviously a believer of the Christian faith, shouldn't really be surprised to learn that the so called Morrissey fans on M-Solo are, "no-brains, know-nothing" types, because these people are the very same people who completely and utterly failed to realise that Morrissey was behind the various blogs and Twitter accounts that have now been going for 6 years. The truth of it is, the vast majority of Morrissey's fans are not the free thinking intellectuals he would probably like them to be, they are sheep, but he no doubt worked that out a very long time ago.

Image result for morrissey fans

These Morrissey fans; or former fans as they are now calling themselves, are of course no different to the rest of society, so Morrissey shouldn't be too hard on them as they nail him to the cross, for they know not what they do. What is more, despite their words of today, as soon as that new LP appears on the Trojan record label, they'll all come flooding back.

The only other thing to add today, is that whilst all this nonsense has been going on, Morrissey has closed his Morfessa Twitter account. Hopefully this is temporary, as I have become rather fond of Morfessa.

*Goes off singing* Yeah, yeah, yeah, it's a shame, it's a shame but people are the same everywhere, and the land of the free and the home of the brave exists, nowhere.


*1pm - LATER ADDITION*

The lead singer of Gene, Martin Rossiter, has also decided to denounce Morrissey. This is all getting silly, and is rather sad. Rossiter tells The Quietus:

 "I feel ashamed and embarrassed that I quietly remained a Morrissey apologist for many years. I didn't want to admit that someone who wrote songs that helped me in my youth could become an alt-right poster boy.....my group Gene supported him in 2004 at Meltdown Festival. I really wish I had been as convicted as I am now and refused to share a platform with him. For that I am truly sorry."

If Rossiter really means that last sentence, then he is a hypocrite, and a spineless swine with a vacuous mind. Most disappointing of all, is that Rossiter has allowed himself to believe what others are TELLING him to believe, without actually reading Morrissey's statement, and interpreting the words properly. Very sad.

Day 2178 - No religion too

A 22 year old Islamic suicide bomber blew himself up in the foyer of Manchester Arena on Monday night, killing 22 innocent people who had been attending a concert there. Morrissey yesterday responded to the attack on his Official Facebook site with the following statement:

Celebrating my birthday in Manchester as news of the Manchester Arena bomb broke. The anger is monumental. 
For what reason will this ever stop?
Theresa May says such attacks "will not break us", but her own life is lived in a bullet-proof bubble, and she evidently does not need to identify any young people today in Manchester morgues. Also, "will not break us" means that the tragedy will not break her, or her policies on immigration. The young people of Manchester are already broken - thanks all the same, Theresa. Sadiq Khan says "London is united with Manchester", but he does not condemn Islamic State - who have claimed responsibility for the bomb. The Queen receives absurd praise for her 'strong words' against the attack, yet she does not cancel today's garden party at Buckingham Palace - for which no criticism is allowed in the Britain of free press. Manchester mayor Andy Burnham says the attack is the work of an "extremist". An extreme what? An extreme rabbit?
In modern Britain everyone seems petrified to officially say what we all say in private. Politicians tell us they are unafraid, but they are never the victims. How easy to be unafraid when one is protected from the line of fire. The people have no such protections.
Morrissey
23 May 2017.

The most surprising thing in the statement for me, is that Morrissey is currently in Manchester - I had presumed that he was in LA.

Morrissey has, of course, been condemned for his words, with both the media and some his own 'so called' fans calling him things such as, "an appalling racist", but NOWHERE in the statement does Morrissey even mention race. NOWHERE.

As the mainstream media, politicians, and the pubic all 'sympathise' with the families of the victims, and offer 'prayers', NO ONE seems to be asking these two questions:

A) What has possibly driven a twenty two year old young man to think it is a good thing to blow himself and others up?

B) What can be done to stop such events happening again?

The answer to A) is obvious, the Islamic faith is what has driven a twenty two year old to blow himself up. Let's make no mistake, Islam is a man-made religion, and it is fucked-up. Last week I watched a TV programme called Three Girls, which is based on real events in Rochdale and other parts of Manchester in the mid 2000s. The programme is about how Islamic men raped young white girls. The programme shows the men plying the girls with vodka, whilst at the same time also reinforcing the point that Muslims don't drink. WHAT sort of 'religious people' can possibly think that drinking alcohol is wrong, but fucking thirteen year olds against their will is OK?

But before I have any 'ists' or 'isms' thrown at me too, I must point out that I don't just have a problem with the Islamic faith, I have a problem with ALL religion, because ALL religion is man-made, and ALL religion is fucked-up. Let's not forget that Tony Blair took Britain to war with Iraq because HIS God told him to. And has nobody noticed that ALL religions treat women as second class citizens?

So, what can be done to stop religious terrorist acts like the one that happened in Manchester on Monday, and Tony Blair's bombing of innocent Iraqi's? Well, when a few 'extreme' Liverpool football fans attacked Juventus football fans in Heysel in 1985, ALL English football teams were banned from playing football in Europe indefinitely. If that was the right course of action to take when a few extremists caused death in the name of football, then the same should happen to stop extremists acting in the name of religion. We must STOP the PREACHING of religion in schools and in other public places with immediate effect for an indefinite period - perhaps until it can be proven beyond ALL doubt that there IS a God.

People would still be free to believe what they want, obviously, but we HAVE to stop teachers and preachers from TELLING people, especially children, that there is a God, or Gods when there is NO EVIDENCE WHATSOEVER to prove this, and we need to particularly STOP the preaching to our young people that some of these 'Gods' want us to kill ourselves and kill other people - the Islamic religion seems to have a particular problem with this, but let's not single them out, just as Liverpool FC weren't singled out, let's stop the preaching of ALL these fantasy religions, because there isn't one of them that has any right to claim that it is better than any of the others.

It won't happen of course, because although the authorities didn't mind punishing the football world - even though no footballer caused any death - the politicians daren't offend religious sects, so they will let people carry on preaching hate, and allow murdering to continue.

Going back to Morrissey, the ironic thing is that when Morrissey denounced MorrisseysWorld as a fake, people believed him, but although he denounced the 'Official Morrissey Facebook' also a fake, people didn't believe him; although it has to be said, there are a few Morrissey fans who are trying to deny that this latest statement has come from Morrissey, and why?, because they don't like the content. Now, where have we seen THAT before?

It's a funny old world, whatever next?

* 2.30PM - LATER ADDITION*

The self righteous, Billy Bragg has come out to state that he is, "very disappointed to hear that Morrissey has joined the likes of Katie Hopkins in trying to inflame the situation in the wake of the Manchester outrage. Such behaviour plays into the hands of extremists who perpetrated these terrible crimes..... when we seek to blame all Muslims or all Christians for the actions of one crazed individual, we only serve to help justify the killer and their twisted motives."

Oh, Billy, Billy, Billy. Bragg's first sentence could have come straight out of a tabloid newspaper, whilst saying that Morrissey's "behaviour" plays into the hands of extremists is just a ridiculous and completely meaningless thing to say. It is actually the doing nothing, and being politically correct that does the damage, not the views of a seminal artist who must be feeling petrified at the thought of what might happen every time he steps on a stage. Every time there is an attack, we see prayers being offered up - Great! What help is that?

And how can Bragg say that these continuous attacks are the actions of, "one crazed individual"? Billy Bragg is thick, but the PC brigade will be loving him today, and that's what he is after.

Day 2177 - Seeking sanctuary - the trojan warrior

It would appear that Morrissey has a new record label, Trojan, which is a part of the Sanctuary group. It would also appear that we MorrisseysWorlders were given 'a sign' that Morrissey had a new label three days before the official announcement! Let me explain.

In my previous blog entry; which I posted on Friday, I mentioned that long lost MorrisseysWorlder, JG aka Loughton Lil had returned to the fold. Morrissey pessoa, Dawn Mist, took to the comments section of that FTM entry and wrote:

"Welcome back JG. I do not believe we've been introduced?
  I thought we must celebrate your return with this.
  http://truemorrissey.blogspot.co.uk/2012/02/minutes-from-meeting-with-high-powered.html"

The piece in question is an old MorrisseysWorld classic from February 2012 entitled, 'Minutes from meeting with high-powered music executives' 16.2.2012'. It is for some reason dated 20 February 2012, but FTM archives show that the piece was actually posted on 18 February 2012. It is a very amusing parody, in which poor Boz is the victim of an awful lot of piss taking, but it is the very final line that is of particular interest. More about that in a minute.

Yesterday was Morrissey's birthday, and although there was no sign of him in The Wrong Arms, a very brief statement, of sorts, was posted on the 'Official Morrissey Facebook' page. It read, 'The Rebirth...Day?' and had a picture of the Trojan Records motif.

Image result for trojan records


This can surely only mean one thing, that Morrissey has signed to the infamous reggae record label. It wouldn't of course be the first 'reggae' label that Morrissey has signed to, as he was previously with Attack Records from 2004-2006 for the release of the two hugely successful LPs; You Are the Quarry and Ringleader of the Tormentors, and Morrissey also racked-up 9 Top 20 singles whilst on Attack.

Both Trojan and Attack are part of the Sanctuary group, so let me now return to the final line of that parody piece, given to us by Dawn on Friday:

Morrissey: 'Do you still have the number for Sanctuary, Mikey?'

A coincidence? Yes, of course - they happen a lot 'round here.

The only other thing to report - other than the fact that I have now at last got hold of a copy of the RSD release, The Boy With The Thorn In His Side/Rubber Ring - is that on Friday, Morrissey (as Morfessa/Dawn) very briefly popped into The Wrong Arms to play a song on the jukebox. It was London by The Smiths. Now WHAT could that possibly mean?

Day 2173 - Quiescent phase

Following the publishing of my previous blog entry early on Wednesday afternoon, in which I had written that Morrissey seemed to have a complete lack of time awareness, he took to Twitter at 5.23pm (9.23am LA time) on Wednesday as Morfessa, and tweeted:

"Good after-evening."
Image result for morrissey in bed cards

I replied to the above tweet with, "Good grief! Open the curtains", and got the reply, "I'm a seminal artiste. I have not touched a pair of curtains since 1994."

Image result for MORRISSEY CURTAINS

I suggested to Morrissey that he get the maid in to open the curtains, or indeed the "towel wafter", and got the response, "You are deluded."

I'm not quite sure why he called me deluded - I obviously know that I am deluded, but just not quite sure why I was called deluded in this particular context. Does Mozzer's personal assistant, Damon 'towel wafter' Anacreonte not do curtain opening? Is it a job too far?

MORRISSEY AND THE TOWEL WAFTER

That was all we saw of Mozzer in the public bar of The Wrong Arms on Wednesday, although I did get a private audience later in the evening, where I was told, "Another classic MW parody to be published. In fact, this is quite possibly my favourite. "My quiescent phase". I will publish once FTM Day 2171 gets 50 comments. I feel this is deserving of your work and effort."

I am pretty sure that the piece Morr-ee-say is referring to is 'The Morrissey World Order', which was an epic piece published on the old MorrisseysWorld blog in January 2013 (as reported on here - Day 485 of FTM).

Yesterday morning, I tweeted to my very few followers that we needed to post 50 comments on Day 2171 of FTM. By early afternoon we had reached 42, but then Our Mozzer returned to The Arms (at 1.41pm - 5.41am LA time!!!) using his @AlfsButton account, and tweeted:

"50 comments is too low for the artistic genius you will receive. I now wish to see 75 comments. Each comment over 100 words. If I am not happy with the comments that are left then I'm afraid the journey will be over. No pressure. No pressure at all"

I responded to the above by tweeting, "And at 75 it becomes 100. We've been here before", to which OM replied, "You sound negative. Life is cyclical. You are warned. My patience is currently running close to nadir."

Image result for morrissey staring

OM's only other tweet of yesterday was in reply to a question posted to Morfessa by one of the 'silly women', LizzyCatMoz, who asked, "Why do you keep in contact with an unpleasant and divisive person like Rat?". Moz replied, "I find him to be more entertaining than the usual suspects I see here."

Those words mean a lot to me, but of course the likes of: Lizzy, Gob, MerryAnne, Rosy Mires, Still.I.Cling, Marcus and Chuck just don't get it. Instead of accepting that they have got things all wrong, and instead of questioning their own prejudices, they instead block the various Morrissey Twitter accounts, convince themselves that it wasn't Moz after all, blame me, and then walk away. I've said it before, but I'll say it again, it really is quite bizarre behaviour.


As for the 75 comments of over 100 words each, well, it just didn't happen, although I am pleased to report that one of the 10 people who did leave comment was Loughton Lil, who after a lengthy absence, has returned to the fold.

Will we get the MW classic from the quiescent phase despite our failure? I guess that depends on the moody blogger's mood. And as we now seem to be in another quiescent phase, could there be some new parody pieces on the horizon? Our numbers may be few, but we live in hope.

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."

Day 2170 - Lifting

Morrissey (as @TrueMorfessa) took to Twitter earlier today to comment on the death of Moors Murderer, Ian Brady:

"Ian Brady will never die. The establishment like to keep the evil alive to distract us from the actual evils."

Since the announcement of Brady's death late yesterday, the Smiths song Suffer Little Children has had thousands of views on Youtube, and as I listened to it this morning, I was once again reminded; as if I needed reminding, of the song writing genius of Morrissey. How many other song writers have ever written a poetic and chilling song from the view point of a group of murdered children. The lyrics truly are poetry.


Morfessa also took to Twitter yesterday evening. Here are the highlights:

"The utter gloom is lifting. Thank you for your kind words."

"The queen of England has spent over half a century speaking but has said nothing her entire life."

"You may all admire me from a distance."

"I'm a delicate flower."

"My irritability is my genius."

"My creativity is my burden."

In reply to Heather tweeting how boring life would be without Morrissey's creativity: "At least you'd have Rihanna."


RIHANNA WEARING HER FURS LAST WEEK

In reply to EARS tweeting that she hates to think of Morrissey being burdened: "Think of me on my yacht drinking pina coladas then instead."

"Sanity is unbearable."

"The truth, well that's unbelievable."

In other news.....well, there is no other news.
