After my recent blog about pseudo alphas and silly students, and the rip-roaring success of my adaptation of Kiss’s King of the Night Time World to Queen of the greenYgrey World, I have ingeniously adapted David Bowie’s Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps) to Pseudo Alphas (and Silly Students), with more than a hint of self-parody:
Not all ‘alphas’ are bad to the bone, or students silly to the core, of course. Hopefully you are a good one, and have great ones around you. I have learnt from some ‘alphas’, and enjoyed the dry humour I used to read in the student paper; it’s just a question of greenYgrey positivity and negativity. Most people get out alive, but unfortunately some do not.
Afternoon of Life is Different to Morning; and Evening/Night
I don’t want to dwell on that, as I know too much empathy and evocation can be fuel for the fire. When I started to think people wanted me dead, rather than providing a fitting funeral, it was a REASON TO LIVE!
I used to dread being this age; losing my youth and hair etc; but now I’m here this is what I am, and the worries of youth is replaced with the ambivalence of age, and contentment of being more at one with nature.
In true greenYgrey style I then worry what those who aren’t going to make it might think; the terminally ill children; and I can just say that they have experienced positives and negatives, which is all life is; just compacted into a short magnified time, like waking into a bright busy morning and sleeping the rest of the day. As I have learned to love nature more as I’ve aged, they have their magical love of animals, and belief (maybe because children remember where they’ve been before being born?) in other realities to those taught to them in school and life.
If you like the above self-parody and satire, mixed with deep Doctor of Philosophy decade of creative writing contemplation and insights, you will probably like my self(ish – the ish is another new innovation; I wish I had enough genius to share it out, but I’ve only got enough for myself unfortunately!)-proclaimed genius books (Russell’s Revolution refugees welcome!!) at Amazon and elsewhere… especially my magnum opus XaW Files: Beyond Humanity:
