Day 1353 - Ignore Ignore Ignore

Morrissey played his second night at Sydney Opera House on Wednesday, and Youtube footage has started to emerge. From what I have seen so far, it would appear that Will Never Marry was worth the gate money alone, but other highlights include What She Said/Rubber Ring, Crashing Bores, Not a Man, Speedway (with GM again on guest vocals.... GM being Gustavo Manzur and NOT George Michael - could you imagine?)  and Now My Heart is Full. My Dearest Love was not sung on the second night, and rather disappointingly, no footage of it from the first night has come to light.



The Morrissey Official Facebook page, which Morrissey "has no connection to", yesterday posted videos of Subway Train/Everyday is Like Sunday and The More You Ignore Me, The Closer I Get. Will Moz now sing these songs, just as he sang Will Never Marry? 'OO'.

And finally, it would appear that Broken made a brief visit to The Arms on Wednesday, but I missed him, so I have no idea what was said or if any pictures were posted! Does he still have his Bieber crush? Astra has also paid the occasional fleeting visit to The Arms, and her Bieber crush is still in place, as is her appreciation of all things Bardot. Fifi too has visited, but only to admire Nicole's bin and to inform comrade harps that she doesn't think much to Sydney style!

Day 1350 - Will Never Be Official

On May 5th, the Morrissey Official Facebook page posted a video of Morrissey singing, Will Never Marry. The very next day a statement was issued on True-To-You saying, "There is no such thing as a Morrissey Official Facebook page. Morrissey has no connection to Facebook." The following week, Will Never Marry shot to Number 1 on The Twit Arms chart.

Today, on Morrissey's return to the stage for the first of his four sold out concerts at the Sydney Opera House, Morrissey sang Will Never Marry. I can only guess that the mention of the song by the fraudster who runs the Facebook page reminded Moz of how much he liked the song, after all, the Facebook page, which CONTINUES to publish accurate news about support artists etc, CANNOT have anything to do with Morrissey, because a TTY statement said so!

No Youtube footage has yet emerged of the first Sydney concert, but Will Never Marry was joined on the setlist by Ganglord, Crashing Bores, Mama, My Dearest Love and Now My Heart Is Full, along with eight songs from WPINOYB and other gems such as Suedehead, Paris, Stop Me, Speedway, What She Said, MIM and Sunday. I have no idea if anything was sung in the Speedway pause, but at some stage during the song, Gustavo took on the role of singer, Moz played tambourine whilst parked behind the keyboard, and BB played drums.

Now My Heart Is Full - which I can't wait to see footage of - was sung with PPP (Pier Paulo Pasolini) in New York as the stage backdrop.

Day 1347 - I wear blue on the outside 'cause blue is how I feel on the inside

Morrissey chose not to spend his 56th birthday in The Twit Arms with his small band of internet fans, instead he chose to meet real people at a book signing in the Kinokuniya book shop in Sydney.

MORRISSEY ARRIVES FOR HIS BOOK SIGNING, DRESSED ALL IN BLUE (EXCEPT FOR HIS GREY FIFI-ESQUE PLIMMERS)

Morrissey arrived at the signing carrying what looked to be a packet of Haribos, which he then made a point of staring at when he sat down. It was reminiscent of the way he behaved when he made a point of touching those roses in Gothenburg, but WHY stare at Haribos?

MOZ STARES AT THE HARIBOS WHILST JULIA & CO WAIT PATIENTLY IN LINE

It transpires that it wasn't a packet of Haribos at all. I have reason to believe that it was a pencil case, but not any old pencil case, it was one sold by a company called Blue Q, and this particular one has ART SUPPLIES written on it. 'Art' is of course an anagram of...... perhaps I sometimes let my imagination run away a little too much!

Day 1343- Oh, K!

At 10.35pm last night (8.35am today in Sydney, which is where Morrissey currently is), from the confines of her locked twitter account, Mademoiselle Fifi tweeted a Youtube clip of Meat Is Murder by K (Korine Varekamp) to her dreary deluded dozen followers:



This morning, I awoke to find a number of new TTY entries, which included a dig at the "turbulent pest" Prince Harry, and a statement regarding a concert at Blenheim Palace (which Moz cannot play). Also posted on TTY, and with no explanation, was a Youtube clip of Ganglord by........ Korine Varekamp! Please move along, there is NOTHING to see here..... well, nothing that you want to see! 'OO'.

Fifi popped into The Arms again earlier today, and exchanged a few pleasantries with myself, Heather and Nicole. She told Nicole (@lapinblanc) "I am jet-lagged but well." At 1.30pm UK time (11.30pm in Aus) Fifi bade us goodnight.

And before I leave, let me wish a happy 53rd birthday to Martin 'Boz' Boorer of Edgware. He has posted a photo of himself today, looking slimmer, blonder, less hairy, and..... jet lagged! It must be catching!

Day 1342 - The World is Full of Crashing Beards

Things have been a little quiet on the MorrisseyWorld front..... dead in fact. Meanwhile in Morrissey's world, a couple more US tour dates have been announced on the, er, unaffiliated 'official' Morrissey Faceache page, and Moz has given a humorous interview for TheAustralian. In the interview, The Mozziah states that he would, "love to go on the beaches in Sydney" but can't because the British press would proclaim "Heaven Knows He's Really Fat Now". Moz then adds, "so I tend to stay inside and wait for someone to invite me out for a candlelit dinner, which happens approximately once every 17 years, so I can't complain." Oh, you've got to love him!



Other highlights of the interview include our hero wittingly telling us, "I certainly have a chin. I can't deny that", and also listing things that he accidentally left out of his Autobiography, which included meetings with Lou Reed & Joni Mitchell, and being thrown into a cell in LA. Moz also states that he is "very proud of the lyrics to The World is Full of Crashing Bores, and says that he has been told NOT to pass the microphone around to his audience. The most exciting thing mentioned in the interview is the news that Morrissey's novel is finished. Moz says, "it is finished and is, I think, unconnected to anything I've written or said previously". BRING IT ON.... or rather, BRING IT OUT!


In other news, Gilbert O'Sullivan was interviewed on Radio 2 today, and during the interview O'Sullivan said that having heard Morrissey's cover of I Didn't Know What To Do; which Moz sang in Dublin in December last year, has made him want to relearn the song again, which was a rather nice touch - and on the subject of that song, GeorgeEdge has tweeted to say that when Moz sung it, it was around the time that he (George) and Fifi were exchanging tweets about beards. Coincidentally, one of the lyrics in the song is, "but someone looked at me and said politely, growing a beard can be fun, let me show you how it is done. I said don't bother I'd rather go see Uncle George and Anutie Marge help me". These coincidences just keep coming!

Day 1331 - "Makes No Sense"

The title of today's blog entry is a quote made on twitter yesterday by @sumdizzywhore. It came in response to this TTY statement that was posted yesterday:

"Please Note - There is no such thing as a Morrissey Official Facebook page. Morrissey has no connection to Facebook."

Sumdizzywhore's full twitter posting was this:

"So Morrissey Official on FB is not official but releases official opening band announcements? Makes no sense."

The reason that the dizzy one is so confused, is because the Facebook page in question has, for quite a while now, been widely accepted as an official source (it even has the official tick thing), and only three days ago, as I reported,  the account posted to say that the VERY special support act for the concert at Red Rocks would be announced on Wednesday.... which incidentally, it was!



No wonder poor Dizzy is confused, but it isn't exactly difficult to work out - TTY is NOT telling the truth; just as it DIDN'T tell the truth about MorrisseysWorld, and DIDN'T tell the truth about the Official Morrissey Twitter account. Morrissey is wanting his fans to look BEYOND what they are TOLD.

Here is the wording used on TTY on May 14 2011 regarding MorrisseysWorld:

"Morrissey would like it known that the site known as Morrisseysworld.blogspot is fake. Morrissey has no connection with the site and is therefore not the author of anything written on the site."

Notice the use of the same wording that was used in yesterday's statement - "Morrissey has no connection" - it probably means that his wifi is down!

As regular readers of my blog will know, despite the denial that the @itsmorrissey twitter account was anything to do with Morrissey, we categorically proved that it WAS - as chartered over four very exciting days of FTM last May: FTM Day 974, 975, 976, and 977. At that time we even missed the significance of Morrissey's very first tweet, but that was eventually put right on Day 989.


Poor Dizzy Whore isn't the only one who is confused, MANY Moz fans are now scratching their heads, but most of the comments that I have so far read from Morrissey fans sees them once again accepting what they are told by TTY - which in the words of Dizzy Whore - MAKES NO SENSE! Let me spell it out for them:

THE MORRISSEY FB ACCOUNT IS MORRISSEY! - HOW COULD IT NOT BE?

And while I am in the spelling it out mode, MORRISSEYSWORLD WAS ALSO THE WORK OF MORRISSEY!

Oh, what's the bleedin' point?

Maybe it's me that's lost the plot, and maybe I've also got it wrong about Russell Brand too*. Get me some grass, I want to be a sheep!

*UPDATE - FRIDAY MAY 8 - I did get it wrong about Brand. Well, I can't get everything right!

Day 1329 - Call Out The Instigator

My 'man flu' continues to drain me, and I am currently writing this from my bed. It has dawned on me that I may have been a little too hasty yesterday in my reaction to Rustle Brand's 'cosying up' to Lead Miliband, so I have started a new blog called Call Out The Instigator (I wanted to call it Something In The Air, but somebody had already taken that title) to chart the progress of RB's revolution.

So, back to far more important matters - Morrissey and MorrisseysWorld.

There hasn't been a great deal of footage posted on Youtube of the concert in Murcia last Friday, but from what I have seen, it was once again a top performance from The Mozziah - and before anyone shouts me down for using the word 'performance', Morrissey last week used the word 'perform' himself in a letter to Al Gore and Live Earth. It was obviously a genuine mistake, and I can confirm that Morrissey still does NOT perform.... he continues to give!

The official Morrissey Facebook page (which I do not get to see, as I don't have a Facebook account!) has posted the following: "RED ROCKS! Brace yourself. The time is almost upon us when, at long last, we can finally announce the VERY special guest support for the evening. The announcement will be made Weds, May 6." Personally, I am hoping that it is the return of Kristeen Young, but I'm not holding my breath. The venue is truly stunning - I wonder if I could find anyone willing to accompany me to Morrison on July 16th. I'd probably struggle to find a friend prepared to come to Morrisons!



Meanwhile, over in MorrisseysWorld, Astra has continued to pay regular visits to The Twitterdilly Arms, mostly posting pictures of her favourite people. I have added some of them at the bottom of the page. There has been no sign of Fifi this week - not that I would write about her anyway - and there has also been no sign of Broken. In fact, Broken has not been seen since he asked for those thirty articles three weeks ago.

Last Tuesday, I wrote about a guy called Rich Snowdon, who had tweeted to say that he had worn a blue rose to the Moz Army convention thing. Two days ago, Rich left this message on FTM:

"I have to say that James Russell 100% asked for my picture because of the rose. It was his number one focus. at that point I knew that the BRS is a big deal. All my love rich snowdEN. XXX"
