After I re-re-adapted the goldilocks story space had used for habitable planets to romance on my greenYgrey blog I recently saw Phil Wang use it on the 8 OUT OF 10 CATS! comedy panel show (repeat from January this year, available on Channel 4 in the UK).
Had he heard of it from me, either directly or indirectly; or is it just a coincidence?
Missing Link greenYgrey Missing Link?
Seeing my joke on TV reminded me of thinking the Missing Link movie had a lot of greenYgrey’s rambles similarities: with it being a sasquatch rather than werewolf!
It also started in British Columbia (on Blogspot) and had a searching for self-knowledge across the world theme, with the greenYgrey total amnesia, and Link for family. It also seems to have a class and anti-hunting theme (I haven’t seen it), as the greenYgrey did at the time; before Meghan Markle arrived and complicated everything, making me value tradition and stability much more!
Although it was American made (by Laika) the writer and many actors were British: the kind of people in line with my green left side, such as Walliams, Fry and Lucas!
I also found an eerie coincidence when I looked up Laika, as they also made Corpse Bride; and I said that’s what Meghan Markle (her portrayed ‘vulnerable victim’ image) reminded me of when she got married to Harry on my travel25years blog; only in February last year! Seems a lot longer!!
The writer, Chris Butler, says he grew up on such stories though, and the greenYgrey was similarly a combination of old themes, so it’s probably all a coincidence!
