Reasons not to Blog, although Positives Too

Blogging has been great, but I’m quite bored of it now, and don’t think it’s got much use in a country and world that seems to have gone more polarised and fragmented. That seemed quite well summed up by an article I just read claiming a mural of Trump and Putin kissing was homophobic!

I started to give up when Avatar was called white racism, when I’d left the cinema thinking it was racist against whites!

British liberals including women and gays under the rainbow umbrella hate me because I criticise women/gays-hating Muslims, and their worship of a prophet who had a single-figures bride, resulting in many children being imprisoned in brothels; including environmentalists who hate me for not wanting an open borders immigration policy that can only result in more energy use and toxic pollution.

And then they wonder why people like me start to support Trump and Putin!

1.-Used Against You

In the modern media world anything can be twisted against you. As a heterosexual working-class white man (yes I am to all the homophobic anti-semites who want to think differently; especially those egotistical narcissists who claim me as an admirer; or the bullying grooming leaders who portray me as must be being gay because I don’t act like them!) I know I’m up against it, with the Establishment and lefties supporting everybody against you, and twisting anything good you try to do into bad – such as defending our demographic, country and environment being ‘racist’.

2.-Used by Others

The world is full of people using other people’s ideas. All my concepts and artistic creations were original and mine, although as a satirist I used other people’s materials as the inspiration and foil for my work. I thought the Kenco advert might have been inspired by my coffilosophy concept, and have no way of knowing if it was.

Maybe they think they have the right, after I appropriated adverts featuring greenYgrey for my greenYgrey concept satirical comedy, which I did hope would elevate it to superstardom!

I joked about it though, as Keith Lemon does in his new series, Coming in America. However, I was also influenced by people like Sacha Baron Cohen, who has a new series, Who is America? Ironically, I found Lemon’s funnier than Cohen’s now, although the latter has more humanities and social science interest, in line with my academic studies.

Neither have used possibly my best catchphrase yet though: ‘Every morning I have to wake up knowing I could be in the mansion.’ That was after joking I was Hefner’s heir, but then he sold it from under me, leaving me all at sea, as I am now.

Having read Guns N’ Roses members Steve, Duff and Slash’s autobiographies, and seeing the A Tale of Two Coreys movie yesterday, I guess Hollywood wouldn’t have been too good for me in my twenties, especially the way I was, trying to live the rock n’ roll dream, but who knows, it seems to have worked for many Brit ex-pats.

3.-Many Markets Want Original Work

Many markets also want original work, even including blogging materials as a reason not to accept work; especially markets that are online themselves.

I wrote and blogged openly and without big expectations or conditions, in line with the counter-culture ethos of free and open ideas and knowledge, a desire to share my mind with the world, and to support my ’causes’ of human and animal welfare, and the environment; which I think are interlinked.

I am a bit disappointed that my ideas and work haven’t propelled me to superstardom, especially when I hear lots of drivel spoken and published.

Finally, Blondie BumbleBee not Burberry

While I may be ending my fading hopes for being a middle-aged model (one of the reasons I included a Stella McCartney character, as I also support her meat-free history; although her fashion products are quite expensive) I thought the revelation that Burberry burn clothes rather than discount them, shows that classism is alive and still accepted – which is unavoidable when you have the royal family (although I have mellowed in my views, as the Queen has done a great job, and most of the others seem nice, but I prefer Andrew’s accuser to him, and Cressida to Meghan!).

It would be nice to see the rich elites boycotting Burberry for its class prejudice, as they seem to take a stand against ‘racism’, but I don’t think they will.

I say support Blondie’s Pollinator Bee over Burberry, helping to save the environment while also taking a stand against class/wealth prejudice!

From Russia with Confusion: Political Round-Up

After mentioning Russia with Cuba in the blog this week, I thought I’d round up some recent political thinking and events. I would have shown sympathy to the ‘Windrush’ victims a few years ago, but have received too much negativity, even when trying to be friendly and accommodating during the greenygrey years, although I have met many who were good. Now, I just feeling like writing the flip side of the coin is the ‘Homes Children’: vulnerable British white children who were sent around the ‘Empire/Commonwealth’ at the same time that immigrants were being enticed to Blighty! Moreover, the same kinds of children have been similarly abused over the last thirty years on our ‘sceptred isle’!!

‘Killing Own People’ Hypocrisy

Readers may ask what that’s got to do with Russia, and I only remembered half way through that paragraph. During the recent Syrian ‘chemical attack’ that resulted in Western bombing, Assad was described as being beyond evil for killing his own people; the same as Putin for the Salisbury one. As Peter Hitchens and some military experts argued, there didn’t seem to be any proof or rationale for Assad having launched the attack, as his forces were in the ascendency at the time. The Salisbury trail also seems to have gone cold, and certainly doesn’t seem as clear as ‘serial love cheat’ Boris Johnson claimed straight afterwards.

I also thought it was hypocritical for the ‘establishment’ to criticise Assad for killing own people after numerous cases of the ‘establishment’ doing just that with British people: from World War One, through the Homes Children to the recent grooming scandals, with some victims or their families having died. Soldiers are left homeless after serving the country, while the ‘establishment’ welcomes I.S. volunteers back and many such people seem to enjoy comfortable lives at the taxpayers expense.

I feel sorry for Stephen Lawrence and his family, but what about a memorial day for the victims of grooming too, such as Lucy Lowe. She was killed along with her family, but has hardly dented the national conscience, despite being even younger than Lawrence, and a whole family being attacked.

Cold War and Traitors

While I was an ideological supporter of socialism during the 1980s and 1990s, along with most working-class union members, as I wrote last week, even Russia has left communism behind now.

That means I’m freed from having any leanings toward them. Putin declaring his dislike for ‘traitors’ also makes me think I shouldn’t be a ‘traitor’ to ‘my country’. However, I still want to criticise my country, taking part in its democracy.

While I criticise ‘my country’ for seeming to ally with Islamists fighting Assad in Syria, Russia doesn’t seem to be any more virtuous, allying with Shia extremists in the self-proclaimed Islamist State of Iran. What would Marx and Lenin make of it!?

SAS Provide ‘Ideological Escape Route’?

The war against terror and I.S., defending ourselves while freeing victims such as the Yazidi women provided a world conflict I could really support. Now a return to a ‘Cold War’, seemingly divided on different sides of the Islamic Sunni-Shia civil war, doesn’t have the same inspiration. Hopefully things will get better, with Korea great news this week.

When I’ve watched documentaries about the SAS I feel that they are the closest to how I’d like to see Blighty’s image, but I also have some reservations when hearing them talk of operations against ‘communist rebels’, some of whom I probably thought had the moral high ground against a tyrannical power elite leadership.

Of course, it wasn’t the soldiers’ fault. When they sign up for the ‘country’ they have to fight where they are ordered. The Russian special forces and those from other countries are certainly no different.

The Left are Just as Biased

While I feel sorry for any innocent Rohingya victims, their conflict reminds me of the one in Kosovo I studied for my PhD thesis. In both cases the Muslim minority migrants started the conflict, and then portrayed themselves as the victims after the majority government reacted. If the Aleppo ‘chemical attack’ was a set-up, as many of the ‘victims’ claimed in a Russian news conference, saying some people just shouted it was a chemical attack and poured water over them, then it’s another case of Islamists trying to use their own people for their propaganda technique of ‘victimhood’; mixed with the strong superiority type such as I.S. torture and execution videos.

It’s ironic that some of the ‘left’ who tried to silence me for writing my views, such as the above about Kosovo, now seem to be on that side of the fence as Corbynistas; maybe they realise now what I was arguing! They probably supported the ‘underdog Italian Islamist’ against me in the department, but now she’s presenting papers at NATO conferences!!

As for me, I’m proud to be a stale pale male like Peter Hitchens… and Andrew Neil… who I usually agree with, but didn’t like his attack on poor Peter!

Mirror Poem about Human Society Madness Reality Increasing Value of Unconscious Inner Brain Sanity

Like many of my Folding Mirror poems I started the first half without knowing where it would lead. It led to another poem I’d been thinking about a couple of months ago, after having a couple of vivid lucid dreams after returning from Iceland. I’d also noticed that sleep and peels are a palindrome, and hadn’t been used as such when I did a web search.

As Humanity peels, sleep Homage Appeals

limpets and leeches
attaching to me
quicksand beaches
eating me up
clouds hiding sunlight
shadowing me
ivory towers height
knocking me down

dream thieves without care, also steal the nightmare

cleared me out
improving night vision
tunnel end
vivid paradise eden
angels smiling down
another existence
I write freely
not knowing significance

Bipolarity and ADHD to Folding Mirrors by [Marc Latham]

The Flower and the Butterfly Prose Poetry Short Story

I recorded Pride and Prejudice and Zombies last night, so I don’t know if it’s title and theme inspired this classic poem of the eternal life cycle of nature.

See the source image

Flower and Butterfly, Live or Die 

Candy Tuft had not long flowered
spring sunshine empowered
a butterfly landed on her petal
she held her breath to let it settle
‘I haven’t seen you here before,’
said Candy admiring the floral design it wore

‘Yet I, seem to know us.’ ‘We’re coded that way, like Rebus,’

said Pipevine upping game to the bloom above
‘created this way to inspire love,’
replied instinctively before a hush caused it doubt
was the flower wondering what about
summer rains refreshment
Pipevine Swallowtail knew a deathly silence.

References

Pipevine Swallowtail butterfly.
Rebus is a picture-word puzzle, which is probably what inspired a famous fantasy detective being named it.
Candy Tuft flower.

Mirror Poem Reflects Cosmic Ray Light

I was thinking that yesterday’s video of the green shape docking at the ISS and Soyuz (which is what looked cross-shaped) could also be interpreted as the greenYgrey (the shape is described as yellow in another YouTube video) saying goodbye to humanity, as it was from 2014, when the greenYgrey was already on its XaW Files journey, in its final year on Earth, which included time in greenYgrey space above Russia!

Chemical Elements Mirror Poem

I thought the supporters of the above theory could be called the Enola Gays, remembering the song Enola Gay by the Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, wordplaying on the En start and ys end, with Gays also having a G like Grey, and the a and e are interchangeable, such as between American and English spelling.

However, when I looked the song up I realised it was about the plane that carried the atomic bomb over Hiroshima, so I think we should leave that there.

Ironically, atomic energy does have relevance to my new Folding Mirror poem, but only in being scientific in a chemistry way. As Wikipedia writes: ‘chemical element is a species of atoms having the same number of protons in their atomic nuclei.’

Wordplay Humour Poetry

Having watched Sacha Baron Cohen’s The Dictator for the first time yesterday, when I first saw boron I thought it made a good blended word for Borat and moron, remembering Cohen’s other character.

I also thought it was weird his character had made his name into a lot of words in their language, after I’d written earlier that day about the greenYgrey family of words. Its not the first time our humour has crossed paths!

I liked the movie, although the humour’s lost the sparkle of the early stuff, but is still good. Having watched that and the even funnier Ted2 recently, I wonder why some people in Blighty get all high n’ mighty about my writing! I’m like the Simpsons to them being like South Park!!

It was also good to see the female stars having enough of a sense of humour to laugh at themselves in both movies, as I am about myself, and show my humility, as in the word explanation below the poem.

Anyway, enough about politically incorrectness, and time for the poetry and to introduce a couple of lovely images I found with lots of greenYgrey letters relevance, and great gYgPOP (greenY[ellow]greyPinkyOrangePurple) colours.

Chemical Elements, Wordplay Ingredients
Iron Beryllium, Gold Vanadium

cosmic ray spallation
universal exhalation
scattering energy space
creating human race
supernovae seem rare
from where we stare
on our awesome planet
free of those trying to ban it

found boron in codeword grid, without knowing what letters hid

unlocked box full of chemical elements
eye candy mental sentiments
mesmerising my eye sense
enlightening by fluorescence
stimulating further learning
planning on returning
mental inhalation
deep breath relaxation

Most of the above science is new to me, although some ring a bell, such as Hydrogen, Helium, Lithium (Nirvana!), Nitrogen, Oxygen, Iron, Gold etc.
Wikipedia list of chemical elements: Boron is B5. Beryllium is Be4, Iron is Fe26. Vanadium is V23, Gold is Au79 – a gold AAW connection relevance!

If you need to research any words there’s the Free Online Dictionary. I checked fluorescent, thinking I knew basically what it meant, but not exactly. I was right, I didn’t know that fluorescence is light passed on from another light source, and is different to phosphorescence in that its light goes out straight away once the original light goes out.

Mirror Poem for Easter 21-C , with AI Space Technology

Today’s a special day for Christians, and I think Jesus provided a good overall example, criticising humanity’s greed and sacrificing his need. This latest Folding Mirror poem probably has a little Christian inspiration in looking at humanity’s development of technology positively, in that we are willing to produce something that will be superior to us in some ways.

Folding Mirror Poem Ins and Outs

After using bittersweet recently I thought I should have written it’s in the greenYgrey family of terms, as is the Ins and Outs of the title above. I’ve heard tit-for-tat a lot recently, and that’s another greenYgrey one – one term featuring two contrasting words.

The lines of this quite simple poem, compared to the last one, rhyme in the following line, and those two lines also start with the same letter; something I thought of doing along the way, after the first four lines worked like that automatically.

The triangle symbol may have been inspired by watching the latest NASA’s Unexplained Files (repeat from 2016) on Quest last night, with a mysterious triangle/diamond shaped old-fashioned greenygrey shape seen docking on the ISS (International Space Station), which looks like a cross. A greenYgreyology interpretation could be a greenYgrey Christian birth? Video of it from YouTube posted at end of the blog.

Advancing in Numeration, Nurturing of Automation

living in the zone
life by smart phone
no time for reality
never considering impartiality
wise for fun time
without reaching sublime

above will seem IA∇, ℑAI shows the way

humanity will advance
hedging back seat chance
providing evidential humility
poor relation in productivity
only time will tell
of heaven or hell

Independent Archaic (archaic – old-fashioned) – my term to reflect AI. The special character is the apt ‘backward difference’, fitting in with how humanity may seem in the future according to AI now defeating humanity in many tests/games/creativity, and set to widen the gap in the future.
Artificial Intelligence. The special character is the apt ‘imaginary part’ – took a little while searching through many of the 255 of them before choosing it.

Pilots’ Significant UFO Sighting and Earliest American Footprints Found

Hot on the heels of my last Folding Mirror poem contrasting space flight with early American indigenous humans there’s new story developments on the UFO and first Americans front. These are true news stories, so score very low on the parodymeter.

UFO to Floor American West Explore

ABC News  received audio of pilots reporting a bright fast craft shooting above them over Arizona last month, but more recently reported, which didn’t show up on radar, and was unknown to the controller. One plane reported to the controller and then another did after being asked to look out for it by the controller. Pilots of different planes and a controller are great witnesses, although there are no images.

Linked to that article, and on National Geographic, footprints have been found in Alaska, North America dated to 13,000 years ago: the earliest yet found. It supports the time and place for the dominant paradigm theory of migration to the continent.

I posted sixteen photos on National Geographic Your Shot this year, inspired by my Iceland photos. They have some creative titles and descriptive explanations for all diehard fans of my writing… especially greenYgreyliens, greenYgreyologists and AAWs!

I’ve been thinking of promoting all greenYgreyliens to greenYgreyologists, as you’ve been with me so long now. What do you think? Status Quo or Promotion?
