Day 2441 - Treat enough

Despite Morrissey being on tour, and despite me producing an excellent chart, yesterday's FTM readership was through the floor - WHAT IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE? THIS IS A LIVING AND BREATHING HISTORICAL DOCUMENT OF MORRISSEY SECRETLY INTERACTING WITH HIS FANS VIA TWITTER AND A BLOG AND NO ONE IS INTERESTED!..... well, a few people are, and why should I care about all those who have either dismissed this or can't be bothered? - it's their loss.

It was rather nice that old Mozzer (as Dawn) joined us for the chart rundown yesterday; although he did accuse me of lying when I was explaining to someone that the chart is scientifically produced. When I asked him to prove I was lying, he replied, "The proof I have given you over the years old boy. Yet you still demand more."

There certainly has been a lot of proof given to us over the past 6+ years by Morrissey, all of which leaves no doubt whatsoever that he is indeed the 'Fake Morrissey' that continues to interact with us. And all that proof is contained within this blog, but I can't remember the last person who actually bothered to plough their way through it all, and conclude that it is true - As I mentioned in my opening paragraph, it doesn't bother me that there are so few people involved in our journey, but I would dearly love for someone to read through FTM from the start, and come to the conclusion that we few have reached..... but as the average human attention span is now just 8 seconds; which is less than a goldfish, I don't hold out much hope.

When I welcomed Moz to the chart countdown yesterday, he replied, "The pleasure and privilege... You know the rest."

Before he left, Morrissey asked me via the Twitter DM which concerts I would be attending, and I told him I would be at both Brighton and the London Palladium. I then asked him if there would be any treats in Dublin, to which he replied, "No treats this evening. It's treat enough if I bother to turn up."

There were indeed no changes to the set list in Dublin last night, although Mozzer did throw-in an acoustic snippet of Gilbert O'Sullivan's Alone Again (Naturally), which was lovely to hear. There are a few videos on Youtube, with I Bury The Living again a massive highlight. Home Is A Question Mark was dedicated to the designer, Judy Blame, who died on Monday. You'll Be Gone was once again a stunning set opener, with Morrissey's voice sounding perfect. I also really enjoyed My Luff, I'd Do Anyfink For Yer. My only nagging concern is that Moz did cough before he started, but hopefully that was just to clear his throat, and nothing more serious. Once again NO ONE seems to have filmed If You Don't Like Me, Don't Look At Me. Grrr.

Next stop is Newcastle on Friday and Leeds on Saturday.
