Sunny Hot Day Poetry (Pronounced Poetray)

When blue sky thinking becomes blank canvas reality, on clear hot sunny days, work goes out the window, calling one to follow…
Sunny hot weather all day
frees mind from emergency
planning to experience before
clouds arrive and rain does pour!
The above are a couple more sunny hot weather poetic philosophy snippets, created to fit the Facebook format; which suits my ADHD creative spark: and why the epic magnum opus XaW Files: Beyond Humanity was such a marathon writing ordeal for me; mirroring the 202 episodes of X-Files at the time!
After some flooding in the UK in February, spring has been the sunniest and driest on record in many parts. I don’t know if it’s climate change, but I do know it coincided with the end of mistYmuse 2019/20; but don’t think that’s anything to do with it… although I did give the sun a lot of love during it!?

Holly Wallaby? Comforting Comedy for Celebrity Juice Holly Willoughby Fans

Holly Willoughby Celebrity Juice fans had some bad news this week, with HW pulling out of the show, putting it at risk of ending. This blog post provides similar humour, that I thought of before that news.

Introducing Holly Wallaby (Willoughby):

A combination of posting about Holly Willoughby and the Werewolf of Oz (WoO) ebook being free to download on Smashwords until the end of the month; and Frank Skinner reminding me of Shaggy, and how the real town of Humpty Doo in Australia became a combo of Humpty Dumpty and Scooby Doo in WoO inspired me to think of combining Willoughby and wallaby for Holly Wallaby!
WoO did of course star another hoochie coochie Holly: Miss Valance, who became Mrs. Candy that year (2012). The Wizard of Oz theme travellers encountered a Simpsons/South Park-style Holly Valance in the real town of Riddell’s Creek, inspiring the Best and Scrumptious Bubble and Squeak riddle storyline, previously posted on this very website.
Best of luck to them all, and I hope you enjoy the image/book if you hear of them!!

re. Movember: May Month-Hair Wordplay Treble

While I consider the Movember movement  a good cause, I don’t consider it sacrosanct (I also don’t hide the fact I had to look up the spelling for that; and wasn’t even thinking it properly!), and let it stand in the way of my creative wordplay genius: science doesn’t stop and rest on its laurels when it split the atom, but tries to go smaller and smaller, to quantum and infinity… and I managed to find a great (subjective bias I know!) wordplay ending to this blogpost!

You may be wondering how someone who is not an English language expert can also be an English language genius, but that would be more about you not understanding genius: sometimes to be a genius means knowing less about the subject, because if you’ve absorbed too much of the subject it’s harder to be yourself and original!

May Genius Month

When I cut off most of my winter ‘coat’ I kept the moustache, because it had reached below my chin, and I’d never had such a moustache before.

Then, thinking of Movember (November moustache), I thought it was a pity it was April, between March (Marchtache) and May (Maytache), so I kept it until this month!

Then a couple of days before I thought I had grown a bit of a mullet, and thought of Mayllet.

But it wasn’t until yesterday morning, and how my hair turned out, that I saw the Mohican, and thought of Mayhican.

So, like my spontaneous prose, sometimes genius is instantaneous, and sometimes it develops over time!

Will I finally get the recognition my genius deserves, or will I remain a TiT?

As for my May hair, there may be stubble ahead!.. https://youtu.be/gACCCmFKP80

Frankie Goes to Hollywood Beat Journey Next Move for Frank Skinner?

After Frank Skinner’s beat poetry podcast maybe another programme could see him retrace the Beat journey to California, and be called Frankie Goes to Hollywood after the 1980s pop group!

GGF II?

If it included greenYgrey (and Frank: Road Trip), it could also be the new Gordon, Gino and Fred: Road Trip (just done USA!), with GGF capitals!

New Scooby Doo?

They could also do Scooby Doo, with Frank’s scruffy look and zany personality ideal to play Shaggy!?

Until then, there’s always the greenYgrey trilogy!

Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps Free Ebook

I’ve made my old book (2012) that light-heartedly twists the Wizard of Oz theme into one of good pagans and bad monotheists; inspired by the Homes Children historic child abuse being uncovered by Margaret Humphreys (told in the Oranges and Sunshine book and film, starring Emily Watson; as well as ‘nice’ movies like Crocodile Dundee and Australia) and the industrial scale street grooming (much of it targeting Homes Children) largely uncovered at the time. It has a veggie werewolf hero and lots of anthropomorphic characters travelling Australia; and a body, mind and spirit theme replacing heart, brain and courage; free on Smashwords (need a free account) as part of their coronavirus Authors Give Back promotion. You can use the code on the site or CR86V.

The Future is Fur-Free: Fungi February (Funguary?)

…to have been a mushroom coated in honey ale eaten by an angel –
agaric astronaut flying eternal
beautiful mind sweet dreams…

The above sweet words were fitted into a colourful post theme on my Facebook page, following on from the intentional self-parody (I think this kind of comedy is fun really, and funnier than cracking endless jokes, but that’s just me, and my fondness for sitcomery!):
‘I’m not a fun guy, more like fungi!:
cerebrity rather than celebrity!!:
since re-routing/rooting my cerebral cortex to the universal network via the world wide web!!!’

The above were inspired by this: Fungi history article.

It’s highlights for me were these words:“If you put fungi and green algae together in a liquid, after a couple of weeks, they’ll form some kind of [cooperative] relationship together,” Bonneville says. And this image:

Brain Chemicals Explanation for Introspection

Today I was inspired by a BBC film on the brain chemicals explanation why some people are intrinsically extrovert or introvert, linking back to my thoughts about me being more fungi than fun!:

‘Scientific brain chemicals explanation for extroversion and introversion makes sense: dopamine and acetylcholine. Society used to think extroverts could ‘be quiet’, and introverts ‘snap out of it’, but science says:
introverts overload easily on dopamine, soon needing a break to recover, and thrive on acetylcholine, which is triggered by focusing and concentrating, like while creating arts, making them feel relaxed, alert and content:
Acetylcholine barely registers with extroverts, who seek more and more dopamine!’

So, for those who think I’m ‘weird’, I’m just a probably more introvert than extrovert writer; enjoying my acetylcholine chemicals; writing about similar things to the BBC!

Lie within Believe Great Example of Shenel

To be-lie-ve agnostically
is always to remember
most likely current option
could be proved wrong
sometime in the future.

Believe is a good example of a perfect (same number of letters each side of inside word) shenel (word with another inside, like a nut’s shell and kernel I invented, without naming it after myself) with related words on outside and inside.
