The History of Morrissey's Blue Rose Society

On August 24th 2013, Morrissey's new film 'Morrissey 25 Live' will hit the cinemas, and the world will see Morrissey take a BLUE ROSE from the audience, but do YOU know the significance of the BLUE ROSE? Here is ALL you need to know:

On May 14 2011, Morrissey placed the following statement official statement on the website True-To-You.net:


Morrisseysworld.blogspot


14 May 2011
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.

The strangest thing about this statement was that NOBODY had ever heard of the MorrisseysWorld blog, so the statement actually brought attention to it. Morrissey NEVER issues statements to deny authorship of such things, so a number of people had their collective interests aroused by this extraordinary denial, and started to keep an eye on the MorriseysWorld blog.

Over the following three months, despite many reservations amongst fans that Morrissey would do such a thing, it became blatantly obvious that Morrissey himself was behind the MorrisseysWorld blog. (Evidence can be read here: http://followingthemozziah.blogspot.co.uk/2012/06/history-of-morrisseysworld.html and further evidence here: http://www.morrisseysworldismoz.blogspot.co.uk/)

On August 22nd 2011, Morrissey asked his fans, via the MorrisseysWorld blog, to take either a single RED ROSE or a single WHITE ROSE to his concerts. Morrissey explained that he wanted roses, in honour of his literary hero, Oscar Wilde, who had a theme of roses running through his work.



On October 9th 2011, the following statement was issued on Morrissey's MorrisseysWorld blog:

"When the blood runs, the white rose becomes a red rose. When the truth settles down, nothing will remain." At the time, nobody had any idea what this meant, but it would later become apparent (Keep reading!)

On November 14th 2011, Morrissey's tour of North America got underway, and a handful of fans who had seen the MorrisseysWorld website took roses to Morrissey concerts.

On November 28th 2011, Morrissey took a RED ROSE from an audience member at the concert in Pomona. The significance of this was HUGE, as it was the first flower of ANY sort that Morrissey had accepted on stage in years and years, and it was further proof that MorrisseysWorld REALLY WAS Morrissey's blogsite.

Morrissey's tour of North America ended in December, and a tour of South America started at the end of February 2012. By now, Morrissey had formed the 'Blue Rose Society' on his blogsite, and asked fans to also bring BLUE roses to his concerts.


On March 17th 2012, Morrissey accepted a WHITE ROSE on stage in Bogota, Colombia during the song, 'You Have Killed Me'. The rose wasn't thrust at Morrissey, he 'sought it out', but what was REALLY bizarre, was that the rose appeared to be RED due to the lighting, which fulfilled the prediction made on the MW blog that, "When the blood runs (ie You Have Killed Me), the white rose becomes a red rose."

"THE WHITE ROSE BECOMES A RED ROSE" UNDER THE RED LIGHTING


The video showing Morrissey take the WHITE ROSE in Bogota can be seen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oVaezmLcyi4). 

By this stage, more and more fans started to take roses to Morrissey concerts, but both the MorrisseysWorld blog and the Blue Rose Society, STILL remained relatively unknown to the vast majority of Morrissey fans, and the many of those who HAD heard of MorrisseysWorld, refused to accept that it could possibly be the work of Morrissey, despite OVERWHELMING evidence to the contrary.

On April 10th 2012, Morrissey wrote on the MW blogsite, that he would wear a BLUE ROSE before the end of 2012.




On the morning of July 5th 2012, Morrissey's wikipedia entry was updated, to make reference to both the 'BLUE ROSE SOCIETY' and Oscar Wilde's 'GREEN CARNATION', it read:

"The sign of this secret society is the blue rose; blue roses - as well as their other signs, the red and white rose - have been seen at many Morrissey concerts in 2011-2012 from the US to Colombia. The Blue Rose Society is seen by some as a reference to Oscar Wilde's green carnation-wearing followers."


That VERY evening, Morrissey started the European leg of his tour in Liege Belgium, and walked on stage wearing a GREEN CARNATION. The next day, the wikipedia entry mysteriously disappeared.

Morrissey continued to accept roses at his concerts in Europe, whilst refusing ALL other flowers, and he even chose to wear a gaudy BLUE ROSE tie when he was presented with the 'Key to the City' of Tel Aviv. See video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FTxMAsKs1jg

On October 5th 2012, Morrissey started another tour of North America, and on October 10th, at his concert at Radio City Music Hall in New York, Morrissey fulfilled his promise of April 10th, by accepting a BLUE ROSE from a young fan, and WEARING it in his pocket.

As Morrissey's Blue Rose Society grew, even his tour manager, Donnie Knutson was photographed with a Blue Rose outside the studios of 'The Late Show' in New York.

At the Morrissey concerts in North America in January and February 2013, more and more roses were taken.


A BLUE ROSE IN BROOKLYN - JANUARY 2013


On February 27th 2013, Morrissey accepted a bunch of Blue Roses at his concert in San Diego, and on March 1st, at his Staples Center concert in LA, Morrissey was presented with a 'Blue Rose Society Ring', which he gladly accepted.

On March 2nd 2013, Morrissey's concert at Hollywood High School was filmed for a special cinema and DVD release called 'Morrissey 25 Live'. Not only did Morrissey start the concert in a shirt covered in blue flowers, but during the very first song of the concert (Alma Matters), with the world watching, he leaned deep into the audience to collect a BLUE ROSE, which he then wore in his pocket - See here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ToWcitbV5bg.

MORRISSEY REACHES FOR THE BLUE ROSE OF HOLLYWOOD HIGH - MARCH 2013


The MorrisseysWorld blogsite has now disappeared, but Morrissey's BLUE ROSE SOCIETY lives on, and when Morrissey next tours, you can join the Blue Rose Society by simply taking either a RED, WHITE or BLUE ROSE to a concert.

Members of the Blue Rose Society can be found on twitter following '@BlueRoseSociety', or use the hashtag #BlueRoseSociety .

Day 700 - To Wreck, My Own Way (Act 1 Scene 2 - Part 1)

(For those of you who missed Scene 1... Boz has just arrived at Morrissey's house and been told by Morrissey's mum that Moz is upstairs in his bedroom!)

BOZ: (Knocks the bedroom door. The song Alma Matters can be heard playing. There is no answer at the bedroom door. Boz knocks again. No answer. Boz knocks yet again. There is still no answer, and Alma Matters continues playing.)

(Morrissey is laying on his bedroom floor next to the record player. Having heard the first two knocks at the door and ignoring them, after the third knock, Morrissey quietly recites a little rhyme to himself.)

MOZ: One, two, three, four, who's that knocking at my door? Five, six, seven, eight, it must be Boz, the fat cunt's late, nine, ten (shouting) COME IN!

(Boz opens the door and enters. The room is full of books, records and many other things just scattered around, as though they have all recently been taken out to look at. Morrissey is laying on the floor next to an old Dansette record player that is still playing the 7 inch version of Alma Matters. Morrissey is just staring up at the ceiling.)

BOZ SURVEYS MORRISSEY'S BEDROOM


Scene from An Education (2009)
MORRISSEY LAYING ON THE BEDROOM FLOOR, AS THOUGH IT WERE 1969

BOZ: You all right Moz?

MOZ: Right? Right? What sort of question is that to ask me Boz? When have I ever been right? (Morrissey stops gazing at the ceiling and slowly gets up, as if he is coming back from his daydream into the real world) Anyway, you're late, you should have been here days ago.

BOZ (looking bewildered): Late? You haven't even asked me to come and see you! I only came up because I was concerned.

MOZ: Concerned? I've been back in this good forsaken country for over two weeks Boz, so you can't have been THAT concerned. You KNEW how distraught I was about the whole South American debacle, and yet did you rush to my side in my hour of need, oh no, you've been too busy making rap records with your Happy Mondays friend.

BOZ: It's Happy...

MOZ: (Interrupting) I could have been hanging from the light flex for the past two weeks and nobody would have either noticed or cared.

BOZ: (Blinking hard) Sorry Moz, I didn't think...

MOZ: (Interrupting) And that's the problem Boz, you don't think. None of you think, you all just get on with your own petty little lives, ignoring the needs of the centre point of your existence, ie, ME! Have you ANY idea how you would spend the rest of your life if I were to die? (Boz looks at the floor) Then let me tell you. You would spend your days answering interview after interview about ME! Once it finally dawned on the outside world what a genius I was, they'd all want to talk to you, 'Boz Boorer, the man closest to the legend'. They won't want to know about the Pole Cats or Happy Harry, they'll want to know all about me, Boz, and what I was really like. (There is a long silence) Anyway, luckily for you, your willful neglect of me is all part of my master plan. It's all in my diaries you know, and one day it will all come out.

BOZ: (Blinking) What do you mean Moz?

MOZ: Well, old son, you don't think all these concert cancellations and the failure of my latest record to chart are all down to bad luck do you? The whole thing is mapped out Boz, the whole thing. It always has been.

BOZ: I don't understand.

MOZ: Of course you don't Boz, of course you don't. Nobody ever could, but we're in the wrecking stage.

BOZ: (Blinking) I, I... what are you on about Moz?

MOZ: Have you read this? (Moz passes Boz a copy of The Guardian from July 2013. Boz blinks hard and squints.) Christ, Boz, your eye sight is getting worse. Where are your glasses?

BOZ: They make me look like Olive from 'On the Buses'.

MOZ: Well, the way you're squinting makes you look like Fred Scuttle.

BOZ: Who?

MOZ: Benny Hill character.

BOZ: The little one?

MOZ: No, you're thinking of Jackie Wright. He wasn't a character Boz, he was a real person.

BOZ: Wasn't Jackie Wright the tall one?

MOZ: No, that was Bob Todd.

BOZ: Is that the one you meant?

MOZ: No Boz, he's a real person too. I meant Fred Scuttle, which is why I said Fred Scuttle. Now put your glasses on and read the article.

BOZ: (Puts on his glasses and looks at the paper.) I've already read this. Well, actually Lyn read it to me. They're really going for you this time Moz.


BOZ BOORER IN HIS GLASSES


MOZ: Read it again Boz. Out loud.

BOZ: (Reading from the paper) "Morrissey: has his light finally gone out?" (Morrissey raises his eyes to the heavens and tuts.)

BOZ: (Reading) "Illness, financial challenges, the lack of a record deal and no new songs for four years - maybe it's time that the singer rekindled some old friendships. Is this the end for Morrissey? After a troubled year in which..."

MOZ: (Interrupting) That'll do Boz. It's perfect.

BOZ: I still don't get it.

MOZ: Maybe it's time I let you in on the whole plan, old son.

Day 697 - Coincidentally Yours... But You KNOW It's Not Him

On August 3rd 2011, the now defunct blog, 'MorrisseysWorld', posted a parody article in which Morrissey and Boz Boorer reviewed Justin Bieber's live DVD, 'Never Say Never'. In Bieber's concert footage, he uses the words,"Welcome to My World." Five days later, Morrissey walked out onto the stage at the London Palladium and said... "Welcome to My World."


AUG 8TH 2011 - "WELCOME TO MY WORLD"
(SEE THE FOOTAGE HERE: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sOcgB32diNI)


Now, to most people, that would just be a coincidence, and in fact, if you'd never read, or even heard of the MorrisseysWorld blog, then Morrissey's words that night in London two years ago, wouldn't have meant anything at all. To the half dozen or so people who had discovered the MorrisseysWorld blog at that time, this action by Morrissey was absolute PROOF to them that Morrissey was behind MW, but as much as they tried to get people to listen, NOBODY would. Morrissey's fans simply put it down to 'coincidence', or used the line, "I KNOW Morrissey just wouldn't do that."

On September 6th 2011, a twitter account by the name of '@MorrisseysWorld' started up, but of course NOBODY believed that it was really Morrissey, after all, EVERYBODY 'KNOWS' that Morrissey doesn't use the internet, and would NEVER use twitter! Because nobody believed it to be Moz, and seeing as it had no followers, it was some what of a surprise  that Morrissey's official website, True-To-You, saw fit to issue a statement on September 14th 2011 denying that MorrisseysWorld was Morrissey's twitter account! Despite all the imitators on twitter, Morrissey had never previously issued such a denial, and hasn't done such a thing since! 'Welcome to My World' indeed - INSTANT PUBLICITY!

The, "Morrissey just wouldn't do that" line has been a constant objection throughout the whole journey of MorrisseysWorld. Even some who thought in the beginning (and indeed at later stages) that it MIGHT be Moz, ignored ALL the evidence, and comforted themselves with the, "He just wouldn't" line instead. Perhaps they found it just TOO incredulous that the God, Morrissey, could possibly do such a thing, but why ANYBODY should think they KNOW Morrissey well enough to KNOW what he would or wouldn't do is laughable.

The London Palladium statement, and the publicity for the twitter account, were of course just the start of many, many coincidences, and yet every time another 'coincidence' would arrive, to add further evidence that Moz was behind MorrisseysWorld, the doubters found a reason why it COULDN'T be him, although the reason pretty much ALWAYS amounted to the old, "I know he just wouldn't", which wasn't much of an argument.

The point when I thought surely NOBODY could carry on denying that Morrissey was behind the MW blog, was on November 29th 2011, when Moz appeared on the Conan tv show. On November 7th, the MW blog had issued a collage of famous people making '0' signs with their fingers. At the end of Morrissey's performance on Conan, he made the following sign:


MORRISSEY REPLICATING THE MW BLOG ON CONAN IN NOVEMBER 2011

This act HAD to prove it, and yet STILL, the fans wouldn't believe! I guess that by this stage, the doubters had denied, denied, denied for so long, that they just couldn't admit that they had been wrong, so they chose to either ignore what was happening, and continue to take the more palatable stance of saying, "Morrissey just wouldn't."

 From this moment on, Our Mozzer and the 'Deluded Dozen' were on their own. The '0' signs became a regular feature at concerts, but despite these signs, and all the other predictions made on the MW blog and twitter account that came true, the masses continued to ignore.

On April 10th 2012, the MW blog promised that Morrissey would appear with a BLUE ROSE before the year was out, and of course he did, taking Kyle's rose at Radio City on October 10th and wearing it on his hip (See video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cPqwwA0ZQiQ)


MORRISSEY AT RADIO CITY WITH THE BLUE ROSE


Once again, the unbelievers put it down to coincidence that Morrissey would take a Blue Rose, this despite the fact that he has refused ALL flowers on stage in two years, except ROSES!

The list of 'coincidences' linking Morrissey to MorrisseysWorld is now as long as your arm. If anybody could be bothered to read my blog from the start, you could probably find at least fifty. (By the way, my blog has received it's 250,000th hit this week - that's a quarter of a million to you!)

In two weeks time, the Morrissey 25:Live film will hit cinema screens throughout the world, and Morrissey fans will see ('00') Morrissey take a BLUE ROSE from the audience. There may even be a '0' sign in there somewhere, but to most fans watching the film, these things will mean NOTHING! The vast majority of Morrissey fans throughout the world will never have even heard of the MorrisseysWorld blog... they all missed it. There may however be one or two people who DID find the blog, and dismissed it as fake, who might, just might, see Moz take the rose in the film and think, hmm......

........But of course, once they've thought about it, they will come to their senses and remind themselves that they "KNOW Morrissey would never do that."

Day 694 - The Disappearing Toothbrush and Ring

On Day 483 (Weds 9th Jan 2013) of this little blog of mine, I wrote toward the end of my blog entry, "Disaster has struck, I can't find my toothbrush. I can't arrive at the Tilles Center tonight and expect Moz to take the Blue Rose from my teeth with my breath smelling of last night's pasta!" That VERY night, I stood open mouthed at the Tilles Center in Greenvale, Long Island, as Morrissey walked onto the stage for his encore, and said these EXACT words, "I've been looking for someone to share my toothbrush with, which is why I came here. All in vain."


ME - OPEN MOUTHED AT TILLES CENTER, LONG ISLAND

Of ALL the 'coincidences' that have occurred on this whole incredible two year journey, and YES, it really HAS been two years since I discovered the MorrisseysWorld blog... well, two years next month if you want to split hairs... where was I? Oh yes! Of ALL the 'coincidences' that have occurred in this whole incredible journey, the 'toothbrush' incident was THE most personal one to me, and although by that stage I had NO DOUBT WHATSOEVER that Morrissey was behind MorrisseysWorld, it shut the door to any chance of it NOT being Moz.

The reason I am writing about the 'toothbrush' incident today, is because this morning, I went onto Youtube to replay the 'toothbrush' clip from Tilles Center, and it has been removed! Here is where it once stood: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fHDR5SPql6Q&feature=youtu.be.

I could have put this disappearance down to being just, 'one of those things', but last week, I discovered that the Youtube clip where Vulgar Angie gave Morrissey the Blue Rose Ring at Staples Center, had ALSO been removed! Here is where it once stood: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QqPAfo3u3_Y.



VULGAR ANGIE AND KRISTEEN YOUNG WITH THE 'BLUE ROSE RING'

So, is the disappearance of these video clips just a 'coincidence', or is SOMEBODY having them taken down? Could Morrissey possibly be looking to clear all tracks connecting him to MorrisseysWorld? The MorrisseysWorld blog has gone, and if my blog wasn't here, there would be NO record of all the happenings of the past two years. Could it be that my blog will be the next thing to disappear? 

The video clip of Morrissey receiving the first Blue Rose, at Radio City on October 10th last year still remains, and can be seen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cPqwwA0ZQiQ. After receiving that first blue rose from twelve year old Kyle Douglas, Morrissey wrote on the MorrisseysWorld blog, "What does blue rose mean? You will see." He followed this up by tweeting, "Blue Rose fulfilled BUT what does it all mean? Over to you, Morrissey."


MORRISSEY WEARING THE 'FIRST' BLUE ROSE - BUT WHAT DOES IT MEAN?


Blue Rose has still never been explained, so could it be that the new Morrissey 25:Live film will offer an answer? It should be remembered that the Blue Rose in the US programme (program) Twin Peaks was NEVER explained, so perhaps we shouldn't hold our collective breaths. As far as I see it, Morrissey IS Blue Rose, and the film will serve as nothing more than Morrissey adding to the mystery. Will the masses even notice the Blue Rose in the film, and if they do, will they bother to question it's meaning? I doubt it.



LIL THE DANCER IN TWIN PEAKS WEARING THE BLUE ROSE, THE MEANING OF WHICH WAS NEVER EXPLAINED

Meanwhile, I along with a number of the other members of the 'Deluded Dozen', have publicly declared that we do not believe that '@RealMorrissey' is Our Mozzer. The clincher for me came when '@RealMorrissey' tweeted the following:


Would like to use the medium of Twitter to announce that is the appointed leader of the BRS in the United States. M



GOB quickly pointed out to '@RealMorrissey' that Kyle was President of the Blue Rose Society, an appointment made by none other than Our Mozzer, who even described Kyle as, "the hero of the Blue Rose Society" on the MW blog. '@RealMorrissey' replied to GOB saying, "Not by my appointment." If '@RealMorrissey' is using this statement to say that he ISN'T Our Mozzer, then that is all well and good, but he contradicted this in an earlier tweet, where he said that he IS Morrissey1959, which as everybody knows, IS Our Mozzer!


Morrissey1959 and I, are one. M



If '@RealMorrissey' is trying to make out that he is Morrissey, but ISN'T Our Mozzer, then he seems to be getting himself a little muddled!

The mysteries continue.

Day 692 - James Russell and The Blue Rose

At 4am Uk time this morning, having not tweeted for four days, James Russell (@JamesRussellMCD), the director of the film 'Morrissey 25: Live', posted the following picture on twitter. There was no message, JUST the picture:


A BLUE ROSE - TWEETED BY JAMES RUSSELL


So, WHAT can this mean? It would appear from James Russell's tweets, that as well as filming the Hollywood High School concert, he also attended the concert at The Staples Center, where the Vice President of the BLUE ROSE SOCIETY, Vulgar Angie, presented Morrissey with the 'Blue Rose Ring' in front of 20,000 people. James would, of course, have also noticed Morrissey accepting the BLUE ROSE from Devan at the Hollywood High concert, but would he have KNOWN that Russell Brand's referral to Morrissey as 'Lord Mudslide' in his introductory speech, had come STRAIGHT from the MorrisseysWorld blog?

HAS Morrissey told James Russell all about BLUE ROSE, or has he worked out himself that Morrissey is behind it? I fancy the latter, but either way, I think it is safe to say that James Russell's tweet of a BLUE ROSE, would indicate that he is now a member of the Blue Rose Society, and he is VERY welcome.

To Wreck, My Own Way (Act 1 - Scene 1)

A PARODY STORY (All characters in this story are fictitious, and any resemblance to real people, such as Morrissey, Boz Boorer and Betty Dwyer, are purely coincidental, and figments of your over active imagination... you c*nt!)

(The scene is set in Cheshire. A man, who some might say resembles Boz Boorer (which as I have already pointed out, is your fault, not mine), pulls into the drive of a secluded, and beautiful detached house, which has a 'For Sale' board outside. The man rolls out of his car (with some difficulty, due to his slightly excessive weight), and rings the doorbell, which plays 'Red is the Rose'. The door is answered by a well presented lady in her early to mid seventies, who MAY look slightly like Morrissey's mother, but again, this is YOUR interpretation, not mine!)


BOZ ARRIVES AT CHEZ MOZ

BETTY (Thick Irish accent): Top of the morning to you Mortin. Is that a new car I see?

BOZ (London accent. Blinking hard.): Hello Mrs, I mean, er Ms, er...

BETTY: (Interrupting) Mortin! How many times must I tell you? Call me Auntie Betty. (Betty plants a big kiss on Boz's lips, which he immediately wipes off, just like all young boys do when they are kissed by a relative or family friend that we all call auntie, even though they aren't really your auntie at all!)

BOZ: Is Moz in Mrs, er, (mumbling and looking at the floor) Auntie Betty?

BETTY: Where else would he be Mortin? Although God only knows (crosses herself) what I'm going to do with him when the house is sold.

BOZ: Yes, I saw the for sale sign, so you're moving then?

BETTY: No, choice Mortin. What with the doctors bills and the South American fiasco, we're up the proverbial stream with not so much as a lolly pop stick, but we'll be foine, the stairs were getting too much for me here anyway! Hopefully we can find a little semi-detached bungalow to rent. Our Jackie has said she'll help out with the deposit, and her two boys have promised to sort a van, so one way or the other, we'll be ok. You go on up Mortin, you'll find Steven in his bedroom... as usual! I'll bring you boys a pot of tea in a moment, and I've got in some of those pain-au-raisons from the co-op that you're fond of.

BOZ: (Blinking) Thanks aunt.., er,...thanks. (Boz goes up the stairs and knocks on Morrissey's bedroom door).

Day 688 - The Second Coming?

Months ago, the MorrisseysWorld website pledged that Morrissey would appear with a Blue Rose. He has now done this on a number of occasions (as documented here: http://bluerosesociety.blogspot.co.uk/).

Just before the MorrisseysWorld website disappeared, the author pledged that he would reappear if there was, "an official photograph with a blue rose and Morrissey together." Yesterday I reported that a new twitter account had appeared, with the user name, '@RealMorrissey'. Many of the MorrissysWorlders/Blue Rosers/Deluded Dozen have taken this new account with a pinch of salt, but as I wrote yesterday, anybody bold enough to use the name 'Real Morrissey' can't be ignored, especially when one of their first tweets was:


The Blue Rose appears prompting my return as promised. M


I wrote yesterday that I had seen no such 'official photograph'... but now I have! The company distributing the new Morrissey 25:Live film are called Specticast, and on their website, they have three promo images to promote the film. One of the photos is the one below, which shows Morrissey with a BLUE ROSE hanging from his right trouser pocket, just after he took it from nine year old Devan.


THE 'OFFICIAL' PHOTOGRAPH OF MORRISSEY AND THE BLUE ROSE (TAKEN BY SCOTT UCIDA)


Morrissey's Blue Rose Society
MORRISSEY REACHING TO RECEIVE THE BLUE ROSE FROM DEVAN AT HOLLYWOOD HIGH SCHOOL

So, IS this new twitter account REALLY Morrissey? If it is, we must surely take this as the 'Second Coming' of The Mozziah. Perhaps after four years of subtle hints, suggestions and signs via MorrisseysWorld, Morrissey has decided to make it a little more obvious. As I wrote yesterday, would Morrissey really let an imposter use the twitter name 'Real Morrissey', and let somebody pass themselves off as him?

One thing is for sure, this new twitter account is starting to stir up interest, as Morrissey fans ask 'is it or isn't it?' In the first thirty six hours, the '@RealMorrissey' account has amassed 37 followers. Here are some of the tweets:


The devil made me official. M

The news of my demise has been grossly misled. M


Statement in following weeks on tw00-to-you. M



Could this mean that Morrissey will be announcing on True-To-You.net that he has now joined twitter?

In response to James Russell tweeting about BLUE ROSE yesterday, 'Real Morrissey' tweeted:


J.R...ssshh...as you are aware, this is mine alone. M

A tweet was even sent to Rustle Brind:

shall you tell or I?

Other tweets from today included:


Beautiful things are soon to happen when the gladiolus is replaced by the rose. M

Morrissey1959 and I, are one. M




I meant to write yesterday, and completely forgot, that 'Broken' had recently mentioned on the MW blog, that when Morrissey accepted the Blue Rose Ring from Vulgar Angie at the Staples Center, he used the words, "as in the flower." I had always thought that Morrissey had said, "and a flower?", as though he was asking for a rose. Earlier today I decided to listen to the audio again on Youtube, but when I tried to find it, it had gone! I tweeted 'Real Morrissey' to ask if it's disappearance had been anything to do with him, and he replied:


I could not possibly be suggesting anything different...not directly anyh0w. M




I will continue to watch '@RealMorrissey' with interest. Is this the second coming? Time as ever.

Finally for today, I have recently been contacted on twitter by somebody called '@DrDevereux', who apparently is the co-editor of a book that I've never heard of called, 'Morrissey: Fandom'. He sought my views on the current 'Morrissey situation'. I pointed him in the direction of MorrisseysWorld and... he BLOCKED me! WHAT IS WRONG WITH THESE PEOPLE? WHAT ARE THEY SCARED OF? Anyway, Dr Devereux is giving a speech about Morrissey and fandom at the IFI Dublin on Aug 26th, just before the new film is screened, but as Dr D is oblivious to the fact that the film is a coded link to the Blue Rose, I would suggest his talk is pointless, so I will instead watch the film at the Vue in Portsmouth, with a box of popcorn and a diet coke!

*Goes off singing* Trouble loves me, trouble needs me, two things more than you do....

STOP PRESS: This just in from the MW chat:


Aug 2 2013, 2:25 PM
RealMorrissey: Take a peek a tw00-to-you over the next few weeks for the U.K tour my dearest, Love and a rose to you Manclad. M

Day 687 - "Not at Liberty to Comment"

On Monday, I posted my final blog entry, and started to say goodbyes to my regular readers as they left messages in the comments section. Having said my goodbyes to; Mancladmozfan, Romina, EARS, GOB, Yunara, Heathercat, Monti and Lizzycat, I then received the following message, which unlike all the others, wasn't exactly a 'thank you' for all my hard work!:


You are closing the Blog? You have absolutely no right to do so, old son. Just because a certain seminal artiste wishes to generate a little publicity by closing down his blog again, that does not give his lackeys the right to do the same. In fact, one would expect your blog to run indefinitely and for it to cover my more mesmerizing blog's return urgently and immediately, and in fawning fashion, and NOT after a delay of seven dreary days. Holidays are no excuse old son. You've cost me upwards of fifteen views and perhaps two comments, of which one might have been spam.

Now get on with that parody.

I continued to say goodbyes to others who had left messages, ie GWO and Chuck (aka SmallBoyJokes), before it dawned on me that I was wasting my time. The Mozziah had spoken, and he had told me that I was going nowhere (ain't that the truth), whilst HE in the meantime was going somewhere... back to the UK.

It would appear I am stuck here indefinitely, so with this in mind, I didn't bother saying goodbyes to the others who had taken the time to leave messages on my last blog entry, who for the record were; (the long lost) Mme de Stael Ghost, Comrade Harps, Clover Dean, (the even longer lost ) Loughton Lil, Rosy Mires (why is she still reading this blog?) and Fancy123.

So here I am... back YET AGAIN! The final parody that I was going to publish is still in production, and part one will be published within the next day or two, but WHAT of MorrisseysWorld I hear you cry? I can report that the blog has GONE, but things are afoot!

A new twitter account has opened up in the last 24 hours, with the name '@RealMorrissey', with a user name of '@MorrisseysWorld'. Could this possibly be 'Our Mozzer', and if it is WHY isn't he using the old 'MorrisseysWorld' account? He is certainly laying claim to being the REAL Morrissey by having the user name, er, 'Real Morrissey', but should we believe this new tweeter, or is it an imposter? One of his first tweets stated, "The Blue Rose appears prompting my return as promised. M". One of the last things to appear on the MorrisseysWorld blog before it disappeared, was a message from Our Mozzer saying he would return if, "An official photograph with Morrissey and a blue rose together" appears. So, HAS such a photograph appeared? I haven't seen one, and until I do, I will approach  '@RealMorrissey' with caution, and I'm sure that time, as ever....

ME, MOZ AND A BLUE ROSE IN BROOKLYN... BUT IT'S NOT AN 'OFFICIAL' PHOTO


There have been various newspapers and music magazines suggesting that the new Morrissey25 film is Morrissey's "coded farewell", suggesting that he is about to retire. I tweeted to say that I thought the film was in fact a coded link to the Blue Rose Society. This prompted '@RealMorrissey' to tweet, "@TheRatsBack Your thoughts are indeed correct my dearest rodent. M." The same tweeter followed this up with, "L(00)k, and you will find. M". One thing is for sure, if somebody is using the name 'Real Morrissey', and is ACTUALLY claiming to be Morrissey, SURELY if it ISN'T Morrissey, the REAL 'Real Morrissey' would get him/her stopped, just like previous tweeters claiming to be Morrissey have had their accounts suspended? Hmm, time as ever... Oh, I've already typed that a paragraph ago! Oh, well, time as ever...


Meanwhile, I have been exchanging tweets with James Russell, the director of 'Morrissey25'. It started when he tweeted, "Kevin? David? Devan? ".

I immediately realised that he was asking what the name was of the boy who appears in the film, and hands the BLUE ROSE to Morrissey at Hollywood High School. I replied to James, informing him it was Devan and sent him a link to 'The History of The Blue Rose Society' for good measure. James replied:


Devan it is. And a funny bit of the film. I've read about the blue rose.



I asked James what he made of BLUE ROSE, and also asked him why 'You're the One for Me, Fatty' had been left out of the film (as it wasn't listed on the Record Store tracklisting), but he informed me that it HADN'T been left out, and shortly after, the Record Store listing was corrected! James had failed to mention his thoughts on BLUE ROSE, so I pushed him again, and got the following reply:


Blue Rose? Im not at liberty to comment ;-)

So, has Morrissey told James Russell all about the BLUE ROSE SOCIETY, but then gagged him, or is James just bluffing?
