Twinings Tea Advert Divides Greenygrey Media Theory

Hi, it’s Harry Silhouetteof-Wolfhowlingonhill, television correspondent at the Greenygrey. I had a great advert to review this week, reminding me so much of Greenygrey’s rambles. Moreover, the Twinings tea advert is available on YouTube.

Twinings Tea Advert

Twinings Tea Twins 

First of all, let’s look at the Twinings name, which reminds me of Green and Grey, who are like twins when apart.

Then the advert has a woman making her way through greenygrey, in what the top comment on YouTube describes as beautiful animation.

Divided Person Finds Herself

The woman then emerges onto a mountain peak, where she is helped up by another her, with the strapline: gets you back to you.

That reminded me of Grey returning to Green, after Green helped Grey along the way a couple of times, as told in Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps.

Green and Grey Fields of Greenygreyism

The only controversy is the role played by greenygrey at the start of the advert.

The Green field of Greenygreyist media theory argues that the greenygrey is helping the woman climb her mountain, while the Grey field of Greenygreyism believes that the woman is escaping the greenygrey to a brighter place.

Tea Happy Ending 

There is a happy ending anyway, with the hills and mountains visible from her tea-drinking peak a more subtle mixing of greenygrey.

Carlisle Collection of Greenygrey Greats

Hi, it’s Greenygrey. Here’s another selection of great greenygrey times from over the summer, this time from Carlisle, which is an historic town just inside the English border with Scotland:

Can you spot the Greenygrey at the Castle military museum?

Werewolf of Oz Episode to Cheer Up GG Team GB Supporters

Hi, it’s Greenygrey, we’ve held our sports correspondent back for another day, after GG’s fave team, Team GB, had a disastrous  disappointing first day. At least the GB ladies football team had another good win, and Brazil’s ladies have chosen to employ the Greenygrey backroom staff that worked so well for Portugal in Euro 2012. Here’s a photo of the BACKroom staff in action from the BBC coverage:

We thought we’d cheer up all GG fans Team GB supporters with an episode of Grey’s comedy-fantasy classic Werewolf of Oz, and here it is:

14.  GREY TAKES GREY ROAD TO GREY

I gathered momentum after passing Coorow, and was soon on the Green Head Road. This of course reminded me of my other half Green, and I became quite nostalgic once again. At least it took my mind off Latham, which was pushed to the extremities of my memories.

Greyt Welcome for Grey in Grey

I was making good progress toward Perth when I found myself on the Grey Road to Grey. Unbelievable I know, but true and totally unplanned! If I was writing pure fiction I wouldn’t dare include it! It’s finding hidden little treasures like this that keep the magic of virtual travelling alive for me.

When I entered Grey there was another surprise (purely fictional this time!), because there were welcome signs for me everywhere. One read: ‘The Grey is Greyt’; while another went a little too far for my liking, although it did sound rather tasty: ‘The Grey is Veggie Gravy Filled with Fried Onions on Top of Mashed Potato and Mushrooms.’ I appreciated the thought all the same… and the recipe.

We had a greyt night.

The Greenygrey of Green and Grey Ages

Hi, it’s Susie Dentinfang, word expert at the Greenygrey and Countdown to the Full Moon. I noticed that there has been much discussion on this site lately about green and grey in terms of age. So I decided to investigate in our beloved Free Online Dictionary.

The Greenygrey of Green

The dictionary shows there are positive and negative uses for green in terms of age.

The positive is ‘Youthful; vigorous’; while the negative is ‘Naive; gullible’.

The Greenygrey of Grey

The dictionary also shows there are positive and negative uses for grey in terms of age.

The positive is ‘Neutral; venerable’; while the negative is ‘Ancient; dull’.

That’s all for now, and I hope you give these definitions the green light, or at least consider them a grey area.

Weasel Words for your Hippocampus

accepting the destruction of the world.

Hi, it’s Susie Dentinfang, word expert at the Greenygrey and Countdown to the Full Moon. Today we have a great greenygrey synonym to stimulate your hippocampus.

Super Synonym

The wonderful word is ambivalent. Ambivalence is a most greenygrey feeling, as described by our beloved free online dictionary:
The coexistence of opposing attitudes or feelings, such as love and hate, toward a person, object, or idea.

Moreover, ambivalent is also a ten-letter word. And with a little imagination, it could probably be split into two separate words either side of the a, as green and grey are connected by a y for greenygrey: ambiv-a-lent.

Using images is a proven method to memorise things, so to remember ambivalent as a synonym of greenygrey it might be a good idea to associate ambiv with green, and lent with grey.

Y? Yes, that’s right, the y goes with a!

Next time, I hope to bring you vacillation…or maybe equivocation…

Lake, Trees, Sky, Green, Grey Nature Photos

Hi, it’s Andy Wolfhol. I have been knocked out by Diane’s photos at Life as I see it. The photos are from Nova Scotia, Canada, and show a beautiful unspoilt land of free animals and abundant foliage. I couldn’t help noticing a trio of excellent greenygrey ones, so I thought I’d bring them into the Greenygrey world for you to view.

P.S. We’re expecting the final part of the epic Werewolf of Oz final battle poem trilogy tomorrow, and will post them all up here when they are ready. Cheers.

South Downs Great British Countryside Best of Greenygrey

Hi, it’s Andy Wolfhol. Harry Silhouetteof-Wolfhowlingonhill tipped me off about a couple of greenygrey scenes that were like pure art on last night’s Great British Countryside South Downs episode. I had a to agree, with both showing sky and land working together in harmony. So I captured them and imported them into the Greenygrey world.

I have called them snake and ladders.

And without further ado,
here they are for you to view:
