I was disappointed Princess Kate seemed to have become a Calamity Kate recently, buying a shotgun as Britain goes weapons crazy!
Kate Returns to Form
So I was delighted to see Princess Kate return to great greenYgrey form on a visit to Blackpool recently (maybe tangerine would have been more fitting though?), sporting big green and grey, and a little yellow in the arrow symbol of her handbag and the umbrella handle.
So I wrote this Folding Mirror poem to celebrate, adapting it from a spontaneous poem that seeped down effortlessly from the unconscious, and that is included below the FM one.
Swapping Shotgun for Umbrella, Remembering gYg Princess Era
Princess Kate taking up shooting
was like a poisoned ↑
through my greenYgrey wolf ♥.
Seeing symbol on handbag
like Y in disguise
deflated, like crushed umbrella.
is T a good umbrella symbol, between windy Y and deflated ↑
Thankfully, brolly she’s holding
in stormy Blackpool photo
sheltered her from rain.
One day when sunny again
Kate will consider birdsong celebrations
more important than dinner conversations.
Princess Kate taking up shooting
was like a poisoned arrow
through my greenYgrey heart
but seeing the symbol on her handbag
I see it’s just like a Y in disguise
deflated like a storm-broken umbrella.
Thankfully, the brolly she’s holding
in the stormy Blackpool photo
sheltered her from the rain
and one day when the sun shines
Kate will consider birdsong celebrations
more important than dinner conversations.
If you liked the above, and love birdy animals, you should be very interested to know it’s the last day or two, depending where you are, of my latest poetry book and second of the greenYgrey trilogy – fantasy fiction parody comedy Australia travel -being free on Smashwords:
Hero hippies aren’t on crack
they’re on the railroad track…
… adding colour to the greenygrey
human nature beautiful display.
Banksy YouTube Conspiracy?
I wrote Banksy’s shredding of his painting at Sotheby’s was reminiscent of Suicidal Tendencies’ Art of Rebellion album cover in yesterday’s blog post.
I also wrote it was a total coincidence I was listening to it on YouTube. I think it was, but it was a suggested video, or their Freedumb album (1999) was first, and AoR followed, so who knows how it works; I don’t!
Maybe Banksy works for YouTube, or knows somebody that does?
Umberto Eco’s Foucault’s Pendulum
If you think about things like that, the possibilities are endless. I recently read Umberto Eco’s Foucault’s Pendulum (1988), and he makes that point; that there are always connections if you look hard enough; something I showed in my XaW Files: Beyond Humanity.
I am now certain XaW is a credible Eco for beginners: a less scholarly, but more entertaining version. We both studied semiotics at university; I did mine on my own, straying from the methodology the department wanted, starved of supervision in my first year.
Both books have thin plotlines and are more a writer digging deep into philosophy, psychology and knowledge, for personal learning and sharing. I was bored for much of the over 600 pages of Pendulum, and think most modern casual readers will be; whereas I wrote XaW in small entertaining sections, ideal for the modern social media user with low attentions spans, because that’s what I am; especially because I think I always have had ADHD.
Eco (no relation to environment!) passed away a while ago, and was obviously a great writer and academic, so I’m not being ‘competitive’!
Banksy Art History – Marcel Duchamp’s Readymadesy
The greenYgrey didn’t find the greenYgrey world’s Andy Warhol, Andy Wolfhol, on the XaW Files travel quest, but it did find Marcel Duchamp and his Readymades. I realised that the relevant images and photos I’d been rebranding greenygrey/greenYgrey; and then POP (PinkyOrangePurple) were like what Duchamp had done a century earlier, in what some people consider the most important artistic contribution of the century. I named mine readYmades, in line with the greenYgrey rebranding!
Jonathan Jones traced Banksy back to Duchamp in an article on MSN today. There is even a link to the Suicidal Tendencies’ Art of Rebellion album cover featuring the Mona Lisa, as Jones cites Duchamp’s drawing on a copy of the Mona Lisa.
A fresh coffilosophy thought now wonders if Suicidal Tendencies knew of Duchamp, and they were referencing him by featuring the Mona Lisa. Are they modern dadaists, protesting against elitism and war in their own LA way… the possibilities are endless..!
I hadn’t connected the railroad tracks image at the top of the blog post to the Banksy-Duchamp article when I started writing this, but now I realise it’s my latest greenYgrey readYmade.
The greenYgrey may have left Earth, but it’s spirit lives on…
I apologise if this blog post has been too long, and it’s been very male. Gwyneth Paltrow was on the news this morning promoting her Goop brand, and she talked and looked great, and many women are capable of great art and deep thinking, as I’ve tried to strongly promote over the last fifteen years of arduous; sometimes fun; creative writing… and editing, which is never really fun, but is rewarding when improving the spontaneous prose and eliminating errors that would have spoilt it.
The Independent via MSN reports today that the Atacama body mystery featured in my Valentine’s Day poetry has been solved after research, and it has been proved human.
However, they report ‘The investigation also revealed four genetic mutations presumed to be involved with bone diseases, all of which were previously unknown to science.’
I don’t know that much about it, but could that leave the door open to it being a hybrid? Especially as I read in another article on MSN, about humans, that:
‘Humans are among the least genetically diverse species, mostly because we probably descended from a small group of early humans who lived in East Africa. Population geneticists describe genetic diversity with a measure called “effective population size.” Basically, effective population size is how many people you would need to reproduce the genetic diversity of our full population. For humans, this number is really low and hovers around 15,000 individuals. It is kind of crazy when you consider that actual population size is 7 billion. If compared to mice, some species of them have an effective population size of 733,000.’
So, putting the two articles together with a quick wrIus (writer-genius, wri-ius blending) connection it seems amazing that four new mutations were found in one ‘human’ if we are ‘among the least genetically diverse species.’
Talking of amazing I noticed a new wrIus blending in the fourth paragraph of the ‘Ata’ article: ‘has been the subject of intense speculation among online alien enthusiasts ever since it was revealed to the world.
‘alien enthusiasts’ just leapt out as the blended alienthusiasts!
Space Alien Documentaries
I’m continuing to keep up with space watching Quest at 9pm on a Saturday night. Now they’ve got repeats of NASA’s Unexplained Files on, which isn’t as up-to-date or sensational-as-in-amazing as the UFOs Lost Evidence that premiered last year. I’d now seen most of the cases on YouTube, although they provided more explanation, and sometimes seemed to provide adequate proof, such as space junk.
Highlights from a couple of episodes ago were:
1. three objects seeming to be leaving the Earth, flapping wings; the team reported that corroborated sightings outside their craft by two different teams of Russian cosmonauts in 1984, who were reported as saying they’d seen winged golden angels glowing outside their craft. It reminded me of the Watchers from the Noah movie; I watched it for the first time last Christmas; which are angelic beings in the first testament (but can also be traced to other Middle-East religions/myths, such as the Mesopotamian Apkallu, which had the same ‘handbag’ as Mayans across the Atlantic Ocean, as previously mentioned on my travel25years sister site):
The Creation depiction also had a lot of gYgPOP (greenYgreyPinkyOrangePurple) relevance:
Conducting further research this morning I found this Ancient Aliens documentary series clip, and thought the ‘angels’ depiction was reminiscent of yellow Ys, as in greenYgrey!:
2. ‘noise/music’ heard for nearly an hour on the ‘dark side of the moon’, where/when communication with Earth is lost, by an American Apollo mission. I wondered if Pink Floyd knew before writing Dark Side of the Moon?
The last episode’s highlight was ‘alien life’ bugs brought back from the moon by Apollo 12. The programme’s balanced investigation considered NASA’s explanation that it was contaminated before leaving or after returning to the Earth’s ocean.
I also recently caught up on the Conspiracy Theory programme Area 51 investigation from 2009-2012 on TruTV. You may find it online, but I don’t know about the legality. Corroborating the ‘Ata’ is human findings, it found that the weird sightings in the south-west of the USA were human military and space aircraft or holograms (explanation for Phoenix, Arizona massive craft also featured in my Valentine poem).
I am still open-minded and agnostic about it all, thinking there must be life out there, but not knowing what it is exactly. I had my ant theory about humanity on Earth a long time ago, and concerning space, I think we couldbe like fish in the ocean to us, seeing other creatures entering our part of the water: a newish little rock pool in a vast expanse of ancient existence.
There’s a lot of people who know a lot more about it than me, including anybody with Discovery Channel and who’s watched all the Ancient Aliens documentaries!
My XaW Files book is a parody comedy, and has nothing much to contribute on the alien space issue, although there is a mysteries theme throughout, mostly focusing on me the writer’s mental process. I became interested in the subject again more from watching new evidence on Quest last year.
After careful academic diligent thought, I Dr. Marc Latham, in the style of Sherlock Holmes, have managed to create a paradigm shift in the age after coffilosophy. Through forensic creative writing, for you my dear readers, I have cut two letters out of the term taking its place. I know it is a quick and sudden change, with the new age just a couple of weeks old, but from now on philosophtea/T will be known as philosotea/T, saving you two letters ‘ph’ time.
To celebrate, I am actually drinking tea now… although I’ve had three mugs of coffee before!
Entertaining Educational Comedy
I thought the old term was just replacing the y with a t, and that it needed to be more different. Of course, Y is a special letter in the greenYgrey wor(l)d, so it’s a shame to replace it, but that just goes to show how different things have different meanings and significance in different wor(l)ds; as with colours or names in different human cultures or meanings.
So hopefully, from the above you will see that although greenYgreyology is mainly a concept and word I created for comedy purpose, it does have some educational value too, from a real doctor of philosophy; like comedy magicians or musicians who can really do what they use as a prop for their comedy.
Self-Proclaimed Genius Era Ending?
Another regular comedy phrase I’ve used is that I’m a genius, but not just any kind of genius, I’m a self-proclaimed genius. However, now I’m wondering if I can go on calling myself that, as there is so much evidence now; albeit indirectly.
As great greenYgreyliens will know, my work is full of connections, with the greenYgrey a connection, as my Folding Mirror poems connected two halves of poetry with a connecting middle line. My fantasy fiction connected the real world with my created stories.
New York is set to enjoy a beautiful weather weekend, but is prone to suffering from hurricanes in the summer and fall/autumn. Now, the city has innovated lots of new ideas and designs to help cope with the destructive storms, and I’m delighted to say that all twelve reported by David Nield in an MSN article had elements of the greenYgrey elements in them.
New York Storm Protection
Hi, it’s Wolf Whitzer, intrepid satirical comedy newshound at the greenYgrey inspired by CNN legend Wolf Blitzer.
A lot of the grey in the images could of course be considered positive or negative, with the weather natural or destructive, and the concrete protective or destructive. Moreover, the yellow in the images isn’t usually in line with the yellow promotion in the greenYgrey trying to bring a bright new sunny image.
As there’s twelve images on the MSN site, I thought six of the best would be a suitable number to import into the greenYgrey world, because six is half of twelve. Here they are:
Hi, it’s Wolf Whitzer, intrepid satirical comedy news hound at the greenYgrey inspired by CNN legend Wolf Blitzer.
The Metro article told how coffee-loving Rafael Antonio Lozano Jr had spent over £100, 000 (U.S. $150,000) visiting over 11,000 Starbucks. His original ambition was to visit all Starbucks, when they only had 1,500 branches.
While the story is amazing, and as a coffee-loving world traveller myself I admire Rafael’s ambition, it was the photo that totally intrigued me.
greenYgrey Boomeranging: the gYgboo
Yes, Rafael has been supplementing his Starbucks search with a lotta greenYgrey boomeranging on the side.
While he may never achieve his ambition to visit all Starbucks because so many are opening all the time, he has achieved the complete greenYgrey boomerang.
Rafael achieved the perfect gYgboo by wearing a grey shirt under the green Starbucks sign in sunshine.
The computer programmer might have been showboating with that shop, because under the obvious upper level there’s another greenYgrey layer, with the outside of the shop having a green and grey look, and yellow lighting inside.
Max Cliffwolf was found at the bottom of Wolf Cliff deep in the Greenygrey world yesterday morning. It is thought to have taken its own life after its human parallel Max Clifford was imprisoned last week.
Cliffwolf is the second loss to the Greenygrey world for such reasons, after Simon Wolfell was sacked for his human parallel Simon Cowell’s treatment of Carmen Electra and the husband of Laura Silverman.
While we always thought Cowell was a risky parallel, what with his past and continuing syco behaviour, we never suspected Clifford as being risky. This is because Clifford always seemed like a happily married family man when he was featured on television.
We think this is another example of the old adage that you can’t judge a book by its cover.
Did the recent greenYgrey rebranding cost Green and Grey a place in Britain’s top 50 pairings? That’s been the alpha topic of discussion in the office this week, after the Daily Expressrevealed a 1000-humans Elizabeth Shaw survey for their new chocolates range.
Britain’s Favourite Trios Theory
With the greenYgrey now a trio after the promotion of Yellow it might have made the great British public overlook the Green and Grey five-years double act.
Green, Grey and Yellow are probably the second favourite trio in Britain now, after the Bronte sisters.
Or did the royal couple Kate and William’s Oz visit happen too late to rekindle memories of Grey’s epic Oz ramble by Google Maps, with Green also making an appearance or two.
Hi, it’s Wolf Whitzer, intrepid news correspondent at GGN inspired by CNNlegend Wolf Blitzer. After meeting a koala in Sydney about the same time as our koala mirror poem reflection was due for posting on this very blog, the Mirrorreported today that the royal couple reached Uluru / Ayer’s Rock this week.
It was of course the setting for the first ever fact or fiction gig in the sky, as far as we know, inspired by the Pink Floyd song The Great Gig in the Sky.
And now, in a Greenygrey News exclusive, we can reveal that the royal couple fitted in some great greenygreying at a rock famed for its redness.
Moreover, Kate and William greenygreyed without even wearing green themselves. They ventured out into the red rock desert, also famed for its aridity, and still found some greenery to go with their grey clothing.
This pose and photo really gets the new greenYgrey rebranding:
Sensational greenygreying by the royals, and it probably even upstages the Great Gig in the Sky Grey enjoyed… but it’s still worth buying the Werewolf of Oz as an Oz royal visit memento:
This morning Stella reported that the Duchess of Cambridge was leading the yellow spring fashion charge in line with the new greenYgrey rebranding. However, I think I can trump her story with this image I brought back from New Zealand, where William and Kate visited before flying to Oz.
Kate and William Royal Tour
After William, Kate, George and Lupo gave the Greenygrey a royal send-off as it left Blighty to fly to Russia on a daring mission to find our Andy Wolfhol, it looks as if the royal couple got into the flying Greenygrey mood while in New Zealand.
Hi, it’s Paco Wolfsang, apprentice fashionista at the Greenygrey; inspired by Paco Rabanne.
Yes, it was like the scene where Green and Grey separated again in Oz, after the epic battle with Pirate Lacoste in Bass Strait, told in a classic Werewolf of Ozblog episode:
‘At the end of the meal we, Green and I, unfortunately had to announce that we would be parting again. The others were disappointed, but the Greenygrey world needed Green, and I thought I should conclude this quest on my own.
Green shapeshifted into an albatross for the long journey back to the Greenygrey world. We climbed to the top of the mast to wave it off, singing Vera Lynn’s ‘We’ll meet again.’
As Green albatross reached the horizon it looked back, did a roll, and tipped its wings; before disappearing from view into the azure.’
