Day 1937 - Brooklyn Rosie

I last wrote a blog entry 20 days ago, and if I'm honest, I had a feeling that I may not write another one again. I had become utterly confused by all the various twitter accounts that may or may not be Morrissey pessoas, and I was also still reeling from Our Mozzer directing me to my grave; as documented on Day 1891 'A traveller to the grave'. When the AlfsButton twitter account emerged, and immediately blocked me, I decided that my presence was no longer wanted, so I changed my twitter profile to read 'A traveller to the grave' and decided to exit The Wrong Arms, possibly for good. It also seemed to me that Morrissey had lost interest in the Blue Rose Society.

But last night in Brooklyn, on the last night of Morrissey's four date mini-tour of the USA, a glimmer of light appeared; actually, it was more than that, it was EARTH SHATTERING. Not only did the grave travelling song, How Can Anybody Possibly Know How I Feel get sung, but as the show reached its climax, Morrissey headed over to longtime BRS member, Jesse (@Mozfiend), and purposefully reached to take her blue roses; which he then subsequently held directly in front of his face so that there could be NO mistaking what he was holding.

MORRISSEY HOLDS JESSE'S BLUE ROSES IN BROOKLYN

By accepting Jesse's blue roses, Morrissey not only kept up the tradition of accepting at least one blue rose EVERY year since 2012, but has also showed that the Blue Rose Society that HE formed is alive and well. In the BRS, "you're never alone, you're never disconnected".

Today is a good day.

*Goes off singing*
Oh, I love my Rosie child
You got the way to make me happy
You and me we go in style
Brooklyn Rose,
You're a store bought woman
But you make me sing like a guitar hummin'
So hang on to me, girl
Our song keeps runnin' ooooon
Play it now, play it now
Play it now, my baby
