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.

Muse Meteor Message? Did Space Rock Open Earth to Univeral Mind?

After declaring my last poem written and posted on this site a fortnight ago a bit of a muse-inspired stream of consciousness moment of inspired clarity, including the lines:

brain freeflowing
open to cosmos
like puddle to cloud
ocean and rain

and writing about UFOs/space a lot lately, I thought it was a coincidence when I saw a news story about a meteor streaking across the USA before landing in Vinales, Cuba – cover star location for the second of the greenYgrey trilogy: Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps.

Meteor Day Before

Although I’m pretty sure I saw the meteor story after writing the poem, it happened the day before.

Thankfully, nobody was killed, or I wouldn’t bother writing about it, as I know some people will blame me, with a ‘kill the messenger’ philosophy – pagan (environmental) ones anyway!

Open to Space

While I don’t think there’s any connection really, my ‘romantic’ side thinks the meteor could have broken a hole in the Earth’s protective atmosphere the day before, opening the world up to space, and the universal mind – muse, with some of it landing in my brain, inspiring the poem?

It’s a possibility, although my rational side says it’s just a coincidence.

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!

 

David Bowie Song Adapted for Self-Parody Student Alphas Comedy

After my recent blog about pseudo alphas and silly students, and the rip-roaring success of my adaptation of Kiss’s King of the Night Time World to Queen of the greenYgrey World, I have ingeniously adapted David Bowie’s Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps) to Pseudo Alphas (and Silly Students), with more than a hint of self-parody:

Not all ‘alphas’ are bad to the bone, or students silly to the core, of course. Hopefully you are a good one, and have great ones around you. I have learnt from some ‘alphas’, and enjoyed the dry humour I used to read in the student paper; it’s just a question of greenYgrey positivity and negativity. Most people get out alive, but unfortunately some do not.

Afternoon  of Life is Different to Morning; and Evening/Night

I don’t want to dwell on that, as I know too much empathy and evocation can be fuel for the fire. When I started to think people wanted me dead, rather than providing a fitting funeral, it was a REASON TO LIVE!

I used to dread being this age; losing my youth and hair etc; but now I’m here this is what I am, and the worries of youth is replaced with the ambivalence of age, and contentment of being more at one with nature.

In true greenYgrey style I then worry what those who aren’t going to make it might think; the terminally ill children; and I can just say that they have experienced positives and negatives, which is all life is; just compacted into a short magnified time, like waking into a bright busy morning and sleeping the rest of the day. As I have learned to love nature more as I’ve aged, they have their magical love of animals, and belief (maybe because children remember where they’ve been before being born?) in other realities to those taught to them in school and life.

If you like the above self-parody and satire, mixed with deep Doctor of Philosophy decade of creative writing  contemplation and insights, you will probably like my self(ish – the ish is another new innovation; I wish I had enough genius to share it out, but I’ve only got enough for myself unfortunately!)-proclaimed genius books (Russell’s Revolution refugees welcome!!) at Amazon and elsewhere… especially my magnum opus  XaW Files: Beyond Humanity:

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!!

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:
