gYgPOP World is Everywhere, Sun Shining Above Despair

Karl Lagerfeld worked at Fendi for as long as I did for Planet Earth.

Our paths crossed in the greenYgrey world.

a person in a green dress standing in front of a building: Yes, fashion month is still happening. The 27 day test of fashion endurance has made it’s way to Milan, Italy. While Milan boasts our favourite shows in terms of craftsmanship, the hidden gem of Milan is the street style. It's the prime example of what can happen when quality and charm work in synergy. This season New York’s street style was colourful and clever, while London’s was classic (and dare we say, quieter than previous seasons?). Here in Milan, the street style is streamlined with sharp tailoring while still maintaining it’s whimsical details. The leather trenches come in Skittles bright colours and the intarsia sweaters come printed in something that your grandma and Miuccia Prada would approve of.While some pieces are universal amongst the fashion crowd, the street style of Milan has inspired us to reconsider them in an oversaturated market. Not into plaid blazers? What about a blazer wrap dress hybrid in the cutest banana yellow. All khaki-d out? You'll want to rethink that come slide 8. Even after two weeks of doing the whole street-style-outfit-peacocking (on top of attending the shows) editors, influencers, show goers are still going strong in providing us with outfit inspiration that will extend far into 2019.See you at the fashion finish line in Paris. We’ll be there with a gold medal and granola bar in hand. For now, click through for the best street style from Milan Fashion Week.

We shared love, but not with each other.

Mine was with a mixed-up vole anagram.

All the images above are from this MSN article this morning.

Musical Coincidence?

While there’s lots of pagan rock on YouTube that relates to my writing, I thought this image from a suggested album captured the greenYgrey world evolution perfectly. The greenYgrey land linking to a PinkyOrangePurple sky through a human – perfect gYgPOP.

Moreover, it was released in 2015, the year I first espoused the new POP art. I did that in January, so think I was first!? Was the album cover influenced by the gYgPOP world, or was it a universal mind ‘coincidence’? Probably the latter, both with the same influences.

I don’t remember the psychedelic 60s, but they say you absorb a lot in the first few years of your life, so it probably did have some influence.

When we got a television in the early 1970s it was certainly there then, from the American Banana Splits to British Goodies.

Silbury Hill Mystery Cloud Matches POP (PinkyOrangePurple) Descript/Fash-ion

Posted the day after I wrote about the 1964/65 UFO experiences there that coincided with my birth a mysterious POP (PinkyOrangePurple) cloud mystery in Warminster area made the media, and I saw it today on MSN.

The mysterious twisting cloud is also set against a classic POP panorama.

Was it military training, somebody having a laugh, a natural coincidence, or a totally POP UFO (Unidentified – although it should really be a UC – Unidentified Cloud?).

The truth is out there, and they also reference X-Files in the video!

 

Kate Moss Opens Mist Evaporation Week Final Countdown (not really!)

Parody comedy disclaimer: Kate Moss took no part in this blog post, and hasn’t heard of me as far as I know.
Harry Enfield did a good parody comedy celebrity show recently, set on Richard Branson’s island (I use his Virgin Media creation, and have really requested a space flight or visit to his island as a bonus in the comments of his Linked In posts; where reality and parody meet; but to no avail so far!), and including J.K. Rowling, who of course became G.G. Howling in the greenYgrey world.
I thought Enfield’s parody was more South Park to mine being Simpsons. Vic and Bob’s new series parody is also quite close to the bone. I like it, and just mention it here for those critics of mine who don’t understand parody/satire.

Nice Friendly Educative Pagan Festival (not taking itself too seriously! As Kate Moss doesn’t from the Ab Fab film!!)

With only four days to go until mistYmuse Y-Day on January 21st, marking a month since the Winter Solstice, and half way stage of the mistYmuse, covering November 21st to March 21st, Mist (Most Ideal Sunrise Times) Evaporation Week (MEW) is really hotting up, with the ceremonial departure of the M, as we prepare to move into the muse half of the most winterish four months of the northern hemisphere year, until the spring equinox.

Kate Moss Parody Comedy

Kate Moss was named the Queen of the greenYgrey world, and a couple of days ago I saw a news story on MSN that it was her 45th birthday yesterday; I didn’t know/remember before, trying not to take too much notice of my celebrity heroes/heroines.

Using the height of my music-making talents, I adapted Kiss’s King of the Night Time World, swapping King for Queen, and Night Time for greenYgrey. You’ll have to do the imagining yourself!

When I first saw the photo below in the article, of Kate greenYgreying in the Ab Fab film, which I saw for the first time recently, I thought her arms and head create a W, which I thought was ironic in mistYmuse Y week, although the W was a big letter in the werewolf greenYgrey world!

Then, using a little thinking outside the box, Sherlock-style, which Kate is famous for herself, I realised that a W is an upside-down M, and that’s the letter that’s disappearing today from MIST, one day after Kate’s birthday! So thanks to Kate for kicking off the MEW party in the style she has epitomised during the supermodel era and beyond…

It also reminds me of Folding Mirror poetry!!

Free Kindle Fantasy Fiction Follows mistYmuse MEW News

We are now officially in the MEW (Mist Evaporation Week) of mistYmuse, with January 21st a week away. It really gets exciting in the last four days, as we lose each letter day by day, going from MIST to IST, ST and finally just T on the 20th; kind of like T20 cricket!
For new mistYmusers, MIST stands for Most Ideal Sunrise Times, and covers the month before and after the Northern Hemisphere Winter Solstice around December 21st.

Ideal Sunrise Times

The sunrise appearing at about 8-9am in Blighty is ideal for the regular work start time.
Of course the sunrise is even later farther north, so more ideal for lazybones lie-in lovers… or just natural night owls.
This might provide some compensation for SAD (Seasonally Affected Disorder) sufferers.

Light at the End of the Tunnel

Sunrise times are still past 8am, as seen from the bottom of the met office weather forecast on its page from that link or below, but are getting earlier by about a minute a day (8.16 tomorrow to 8.11 on Sunday), while sunsets are getting later by one-two minutes a day (16.16 to 16.24 tomorrow to Sunday). So the three minutes a day mean there is about 90 minutes more light since the midwinter December 21st solstice.

It has been a pretty mild winter in Blighty so far, but there could still be cold weather in the MUSE (Midwinter Until Spring Equinox) half of mistYmuse. However, the additional light and knowing it’s the second half of the toughest four months; third of the year; for sun and heat lovers is inspiring.

To enter into the spirit of mistYmuse, I’ve made my last of the greenYgrey trilogy XaW Files: Beyond Humanity free on Kindle this week:

 

BBC Ignores POPolution, Colour Blinded by Tradition!

When I saw the BBC covering this week’s great sunsets I hoped they’d caught up with the POPolution, and were seeing twilight colours without the blinkers of old hat proverbs.

Deep red skies

However, they kept on calling the sunsets ‘red’, when they were nothing of the sort! This photo is probably the closest to red of the featured ones, but is really a deep combination POP…

Red skies

… some are bright pink…

pink skies

Red sunset

… or even more yellow!…

Orange skies

Sky looks nice

I’m just glad to see these great photos really, but if you wish, POPolutionaries, please complain to the BBC in a light-hearted way, asking them to see things as they are, rather than through dogmatic cultural brainwashing!

Red skies

The BBC have also ignored XaW Files: Beyond Humanity, where the new POP art developed out of the travel quest for the greenYgrey world’s Andy Warhol, Andy Wolfhol:

Booker Prize new POP Art Win

The POPolution (PinkyOrangePurple) has been recognised by the Booker Prize, mentioned here yesterday, with Milkman by Anna Burns winning it for Faber and Faber; it’s only book. F&F was also mentioned here yesterday as the publishers of Moby’s Porcelain memoir.

Against Hierarchical Grooming

The subject matter is also relevant to the greenYgrey/POP cause, campaigning against hierarchical grooming, as I have been doing for the last fifteen years in university, work and writing.

As long as the subject is being written about and read it doesn’t matter who’s doing it, although I would obviously have preferred it to be me; I add with unhumble narcissistic egotism self-parody to ‘keep it real’, and try not to look too unctuous and obsequious (two new words I learnt recently and remembered now off the top of my coffilosophy head, and spelt correctly).

New POP Art

I don’t want to let serious issues overshadow the POP celebrations though, and here’s the winning cover stripped of content in true Andy Warhol-style pop art; which could just as well have been the cover of XaW Files: Beyond Humanity, representing greenYgrey’s POP art travel quest for the greenYgrey world’s Andy Warhol, Andy Wolfhol.

Even the simple title ‘Milkman’ is quite pop art, reminding me of Warhol’s Campbell’s soup tins and Coca Cola bottle images. I don’t think he did milk, but there are some other condensed milk ones in pop art style available online:

Thank you Anna Burns, Faber and Faber and the Booker Prize judging panel.
