Inspired by werewolf folklore, a moon or two before the start of mistYmuse 2019/20, and after a decent summer of exercise, at the start of October just after my 54th birthday, I decided to stop cutting my hair and shaving. These are the last photos beforehand (for art and science rather than bravado and machismo):
After Raheem Sterling did some basic media research this week I went to the Daily Mail he’d done it on, and found lots of anti-white and anti-women stories I hadn’t heard anything about on the BBC. A couple are below. This is a comment on the BBC and liberal media’s anti-white bias, and nothing to do with Raheem Sterling or black people in general, unless they are being racist to whites.
My Research Rationale
As I don’t get much response here, I can’t be bothered changing them from the posts I put on Facebook just now. I’ve tried taking the moderate line in the last thirteen years of creative writing after graduating with a PhD, but the British media just ignore me; and call people like Tommy Robinson right-wing and racist when he was also trying to be moderate; and then they act all shocked and go mental on it when white people can’t be bothered being ‘politically-correct’ any more, while the ‘Establishment’ don’t control immigration or sex-slavery, and can’t deliver Brexit!
This story was in the Metro, Mail and Telegraph:
Upper-class White Escort Bludgeoned to Death by Arab Banker – Who Wanted to Degrade (me – proving racist sexism) Her
Anti-white woman racist sexist murder hasn’t made it onto BBC TV, as far as I’ve seen, which is regular headline news… but they’ve gone mad on a few allegedly racist words, which I don’t agree with either, and some school-standard media research against their antithesis Daily Mail… I am a Doctor of Philosophy in Communications (media basically) from a poor deprived background, but am white… so nobody asks my opinion… and they’ll probably call me racist for this!!
They have featured the also tragic Grace Millane story a lot, and this one not at all. Using Raheem’s 1-1 research, which is the most basic, and would need dozens, hundreds or thousands of cases to verify, but the BBC LOVE IT, I wonder why they’ve featured 100% backpacker death in NZ to 0% white woman killed by Arab banker in London?
UK Sex Slavery Rises Tenfold in Five Years
Along with the last story I posted, this one says sex slavery has risen tenfold in Britain in the last five years according to article on MSN: ‘The estimated number of victims of trafficking and slavery in Britain has risen tenfold from 13,000 in 2013 to 136,000 in 2018. Last year, there were 5,145 cases reported in the UK – the highest on record.’
I never hear that about Brexit on the BBC – it’s all about ‘racist Brits’!
Sorry to Manchester City fans. I’ve supported your rise in the Premier League, despite the Arab owner, who seems okay as far as I know. I like Pep’s style of football, some of your great players, including Sterling, Mendy and Sane, but most of all… your sky blue shirts!
For lots of super intelligent research and writing, trying to help women avoid traps like the above; in contrast to ever luvvie popular pied piper of grooming Russell Brand!; please see my books on Amazon: (Sorry to advertise them along with the tragic stories above, but if nobody reads me I can’t do anything to stop them… as I don’t seem to have done… hopefully I’ve saved some… and everybody else seems to want to jump on the anti-white bandwagon to promote themselves!?)
I saw on the news this morning; reminding me of the Beatles song, oh boy (posted below from YouTube); there’d been a sighting of the greenYgrey in Shetland (in the form of the aurora borealis); the only place in the UK it visited of course on its epic Euro trek: XaW Files: Beyond Humanity. It might have inspired this little poem, although I’ve always liked those place names, which is one reason why I fantasy travelled with the greenYgrey…
- While Manchester seems like
the place to be on Wednesday
I’d rather be in Fort William
for the visit of Clachnacuddin
or nestled in Nairn County
for their battle with Brora
on paper by names at least
for the weather can be a beast
although the aurora borealis
is brightening the sky at least.

News, weather and sport were all on the BBC.
I also remembered Finland and Scandinavia yesterday on this website’s sister site, travel25years.
Marc Latham’s latest Folding Mirror poem was written early in November, with some wheezes reminding him of his past asthma, and how it was usually most troublesome as summer passed to autumn and winter.
He was reminded of the poem when watching the Endeavour: Everest trilogy of old documentaries this week. The third one, about the first balloon flight over Everest, was based in Gokyo village, the destination for Marc’s trek. They are available to watch on BBC Online until 22.44 GMT on Monday (unfortunately only in the U.K. I think).
Everest View Poem after Wheezing Asthma
As last year’s asthma passed, Marc appreciated breathing deeply while exercising, and that inspired this poem. That burst of inspiration lasted for five lines of the poem, and then the rest of the poem was created while writing it.
The last time Marc took the asthma inhaler was early in the October 2009 Gokyo-Ri (5,357 m, 17,575 ft above sea level) hike. So the rest of the first half of the poem developed into describing that.
The second half of the poem became one imagining a conversation with Everest, the highest mountain in the world.
Marc has more Nepal photos on Google+

after climbing Gokyo Ri, Mount Everest shouted loudly
It thundered I’m the highest of all
I heard my climbers exclaim

We’ve got another Folding Mirror poem from Marc Latham today. Marc’s second collection of poetry, 242 Mirror Poems and Reflections, featuring 121 mirror poems and 121 other poems and thoughts is available to order on Amazon in book and kindle form, with Amazon recommending this week as the best time to order if you want to miss the Winter Solstice Christmas rush. Anyway, thanks for visiting and spending time here, and here’s the latest poem:
Learning to Fly, Remembering to Swim
Do what mind tells body
when drawing you to edge
and you’ll fall to oblivion.
Jumping with a parachute
isn’t normal for humanity
we must remember to pull.
sky views are new, deep diving is old
Inhale exhale keep mask clear
underwater life isn’t natural
landlubber not an amphibian.
Ancestors dived deep for sponge
weights helped divers go deeper
never beyond breathing bends danger.
Marc Latham’s central site is the Greenygrey (http://www.greenygrey.co.uk), and he has several books available on Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/author/marclatham).
Great news on the Folding Mirror book publishing front, as Marc Latham’s 242 Mirror Poems and Reflections was just sent to Kindle for review. It should be available soon if given the okay.
Here’s the book’s description:
242 is Dr. Marc Latham’s second poetry collection, after the first one was published by Chipmunka in 2009. The first collection contained poems written by Marc from his youth to the creation of the Folding Mirror form, while this book focuses on the FM form recognised by Lewis Turco in his definitive ‘The Book of Forms: A Handbook of Poetics, Including Odd and Invented Forms’.
Caroline Gill, an award-winning poet whose ‘Thalatta, Thalatta’ Folding Mirror poem was used as an example in ‘The Book of Forms’ provides an introductory explanation of the Folding Mirror form at the start of this book.
This book contains 121 Folding Mirror poems created in three years by Marc Latham as he tried to make sense of the universe and life’s place in it. They are supported by 121 reflections relevant to the poems’ themes.
The seven chapters reflect the wide spectrum of issues and topics covered, being divided into: personal-psychological (containing thirty-four poems and thirty-four reflections), social (19-19), culture (15-15), literary (12-12), nature (30-30), travel (6-6) and space (5-5).
The poems and reflections were inspired by the deepest thoughts of a PhD graduate and world traveller, and his new research and observations on the above subjects. Before and during his world travels and university education, Marc was inspired by Romantic and Beat poets, Rock musicians and other writers and journalists who have trawled the mind for self-analysis while searching for knowledge about human nature.
Marc’s first collection featured bipolarity and ADHD in the title, and included several poems inspired by them. These topics feature again in this collection, with the poet finding the mirror form especially conducive for bipolarity poetry.
From his position in the average age’s middle-age, Marc’s poems and reflections in this collection stretch from humanity’s prehistoric past to our current space exploration and prospective future, while also comparing us with the animal world, and tackling the important social and environmental problems of the present.
Having focused on hegemony theory in his doctoral research, Marc uses his poetry to try and break through the cultural ‘norms and accepted truths’ of the modern monotheistic world to highlight alternative realities that could possibly improve conditions for plant, animal and human life.
Marc uses the two sides of the Folding Mirror poem to show at least two sides of arguments and issues, with the folding line in the middle either connecting or dividing the two halves.
There is also time for beauty and comedy amongst the digging and depression, and some poems and reflections provide colourful light-heartedness to lift the mood.
Several of the poems posted as reflections were written while Marc undertook a 100-mile trek to view Everest in the Nepalese Himalayas.
It is hoped that as well as entertaining the reader, the poems and thoughts will support the preservation of life and nature, and improve human understanding of itself and the world.
Marc Latham’s latest Folding Mirror poem has a surfing focus, which is quite topical … but mostly for people living in the southern hemisphere, which is on the other side of the world to Marc! But this is the home of Folding Mirror poetry, which thrives on turning things upside down!!
Marc has only surfed for a few hours, so this poem is mostly based on watching surfing documentaries and imagination. Surfing terms, including green room being inside a hollow wave, were researched on the wiktionary surfing terms glossary. Here’s the poem:
