X Files Returns: Writer Mind Revealed

The X Files returns on Fox for its tenth series tonight, and it’s looking greenYgreyer than ever. Thanks to Fox for creating an intelligent series that makes its audience think, and question the world around them.

XaW Files: Mystery of the Writer Mind

While X Files only provided a framework for XaW Files: Beyond Humanity, the book does try to investigate my own mind, providing an insight into the difficult process of writing a whole book telling an original story, featuring multiple diverse characters who travel over the vast distances of the whole of Eurasia and beyond.

The book kept to the format of the first nine X Files series, as shown on Wikipedia:

Ylvis the Fox Reminder of Norge Idol 2013 Winner Siri

Hi, it’s Howlin’ Werewolf, music correspondent at the Greenygrey. If you’re wondering if I’ve taken over from Howlin’ Wolf, I’ll tell you I’m still the same entity, it’s just a little rebranding in line with the werewolf takeover of the site; a la Martin ‘Wolfie’ Adams becoming ‘Werewolfie’.

Ylvis – The Fox: New Gangnam-Style Dance Craze

We were going to blog another episode of Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps today, but after reading it we decided it was too sad for a Friday, and we’ll keep it for Sunday.

Then Wolf Whitzer submitted a story he’d scooped from yesterday’s Metro about a foxy new song that could be the next Gangnam-style dance craze.

It has lots of of humans acting like animals, and a lot of it is set in Norway’s still abundant and pristine forests… which also look greenygrey in the twilight setting. Here’s the video:

Siri Vølstad Jensen – Norge Idol Winner

That new Norwegian video reminded me that Marc Latham had reported seeing a greenygrey-looking contestant in the later stages of the Norwegian Idol music programme.

So I just checked out who won, and was pleased to see that it was Siri, who looked resplendently greenygrey while Marc was in Bergen.

Stella Lagerwolf-Bruno, fashionista suprema at the Greenygrey, says it’s a Viking chic look.

Marc Latham has books available on Smashwords and Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/author/marclatham).

Animal Intelligence and Foxy Fun

Hi, it’s Greenygrey. Just a short post today, combining a promising scientific declaration that some animals should be treated as conscious and aware as humans with a video of two foxes that seems to verify it.

Anybody who has spent a lot of time with animals knows that they have all kinds of emotions and moods, good and bad, just like humans, although there are obviously different levels of intelligence and sentience amongst the animal species. Humanity is of course the top species overall, but other animals are better at some mental and moral tasks and skills.

Here’s a video of our foxy friends having fun:
