Werewolf of Oz Hugh-gely Celebrity Packed Episode

Hi, it’s Greenygrey. It’s that Werewolf of Oz time of the week, and it’s a celebrity-packed episode. At the Greenygrey we’re careful to only satire celebrities, who are already in the public-eye; and we usually include celebrities we like, and in a positive manner. Similarly, we hope the Werewolf of Oz will create interest in the Oz towns and regions it visits.

This episode is evidence of that, telling the tale of when our terrific travelling trio reached the Aussie outback town of Hugh after the Great Gig in the Sky.

This episode also sees Elle on the road to recuperation, as she re-discovers the use of her body; starting off the body, mind and spirit health emphasis in the story, mirroring brain, heart and courage in the Wizard of Oz. So fasten your seat-belts, hold on tight, we’re off to Oz:

32.  ELLE USES BODY 

After returning to terra-firma we spent a couple more days with Alice and Wally before it felt time to move on. We thanked them for their hospitality, bade them farewell, and returned to the path.

There were none of the shenanigans we’d suffered before meeting Alice. Feeling chuffed with our progress, and thirsty too, we thought we’d stop for refreshments in the town of Hugh, although it wasn’t huge.

Who’s Who in Hugh’s Who Bar?

We saw a bar called ‘Who’, which looked like the local celebrity hang-out, so we thought we’d give it a try.

Heath Ledger and Crocodile Dundee were drinking together at the bar. I asked them who else frequented Hugh’s Who. Croc said Hugh Jackman used to pop in, but he now preferred Hugh’s ‘Here’ bar.

We got caught up in the friendly atmosphere at the bar, and it turned into a heavy day on the ol’ amber nectar. Later on, everybody moved over to Hugh’s ‘There’ bar for a nightcap. Hugh Jackman was there. I was surprised to see Hugh there in Hugh’s ‘There’, as Croc had said he preferred Hugh’s ‘Here’.

Bonzo was worse for wear by the end of it, and I wasn’t much better. Elle ended up carrying us both over to a bush telly they had burning on the edge of town.

I can’t remember much there, but I remember asking ‘Who’s there?’ when somebody bumped into me soon after I lay down… and the bush telly’s flames making it look like there was a heavenly hue over Hugh’s ‘Here’ bar.

Poem about Pressure and Responsibility in Society

Skeleton of Columbian mammoth, Mammuthus colum...

Marc Latham’s latest Folding Mirror poem was inspired by thinking about celebrity and care workers. Both have pressures and responsibilities that can weigh heavily on the people involved, but there are usually greater rewards and temptations for those involved in the celebrity world. Here it is:
For Richer, For Poorer, In Life and In Death
feather falling down
trying to fly
is a MAMMOTH TUSK
deep in humanity’s haunches
rising up to mind
extinction is temptation, responsible for survival
if caring about life
carrying hopes of humans
is a GIGANTIC TASK
for those bearing
weight every day

Celebrity Big Brother (Alpha Werewolf) Looks Good This Year

English: Kristina and Karissa Shannon attendin...

Hi it’s Green.  Although Grey and I had a great time in Celebrity Big Brother Alpha Werewolf, and won thanks to your kind votes, I kind of wished we’d done it this year.

Celebrity Big Brother Contestants

That’s because there’s a really nice pair of twins in, and you know, me and Grey are like twins (although not identical like them), so I think we’d have really got on well.

And we’ve got even more in common, because like our initials are GG, theirs are KK: Kristina and Karissa Shannon.

And our ol’ pal Marc Latham was just saying in a recent poem on fmpoetry that the Playboy Mansion would be somewhere he’d like to live, and they used to live there.

Having so much in common, we’d have so much to talk about…

Trust Cliff Richard To Go Too Far! Celebrity Greenygreying Controversy

Hi, it’s Harry Silhouetteof-Wolfhowlingonthehill, media analyst at the Greenygrey.

Cliff Richard Takes Greenygreying to New Extreme

While we’re normally happy to see people greenygreying, we think Cliff Richard has taken the newest and best social media craze too far, as shown in the above photo from his Summer Holiday.

While the palm trees are acceptable, we do not endorse using live dolphins to create the greenygrey effect.

Please Stop Cliff Richard

If anybody sees Cliff doing this again, please try and stop him.  Thanks.

Big Brother Celebrities Ultimately Risk Losing Themselves?: Poem Investigates

Marc Latham’s new Folding Mirror poem questions how much we own of ourselves, and how much is owned by others. We can control our self-perceptions and actions to a certain extent, but we cannot control how we are perceived and acted against.  

Therefore, do we only own half ourselves, and the other half is owned by those we meet and are known by? And does the more you keep yourself to yourself retain more of your self, and that is why retreats and self-isolation can be good for growing your self, while being in somewhere like the Big Brother house on reality television can make you lose track of yourself?  

And can a period of isolated retreat grow your self to the point of epiphany? Where you keep all yourself to yourself; a respite for rebuilding that strengthens your self enough that you feel you are whole again. Somewhere that you don’t have to give half your self to anybody else, and you don’t have to receive their perceptions of you.  

If you give yourself to the world: through writing, art, music or just your personality; it can be cathartic and rewarding or draining and depressing?  Sometimes it is both, and sometimes these twists in mood affect the same people at different times.    

Here’s the poem:   

Inside Out  

 Do we see the world, as the world sees us
Do we own ourselves, or are we dependent on others
Do we think freely, or are our thoughts governed
Do we create identity, or is it instilled
Do we live for ourselves, or for others  

 Inside is ours? Outside is theirs?  

 We live for others, but also ourselves
We are born, and create social image
We think thoughts, from what we have learned
We are ourselves, but we also exist within society
We see the world, and we are seen by it  

 I also wrote an article inspired by this poem for Suite 101
