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.

Literary Nonsense Poem about Khabarovsk History and Tretyakov Art

English: Khabarovsk, Privokzalnaya square. Mon...
English: Khabarovsk, Privokzalnaya square. Monument to Erofey Khabarov, Far East’s explorer Русский: Хабаровск, Привокзальная площадь. Памятник Ерофею Хабарову, исследователю Дальнего Востока (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

It looked like the Greenygrey was hot on the trail of the A.W.O.L Andy Wolfhol in the last chapter of the poetically funny X Files parody XaW Files. I can’t help but think GG has gone a bit off the trail in the sixth chapter, researching and poetically documenting the life of Yerofey Khabarovsk.

Poem about Khabarovsk 

Hi, it’s G.G. Howling, fiction writing correspondent at the Greenygrey inspired by J.K. Rowling. I know enough about fiction writing to know that  a little background and history is necessary, and that it’s best to fit it into the narrative of the story.

However, I also know that it’s important to keep the story progressing, and don’t know if Khabarovsk is going to be important at the end.

Then again, the Greenygrey doesn’t know that either yet, as it’s still searching for our Wolfhol. Some breather chapters and fillers are often a good idea anyway, and there’s some good info and poetry within this chapter, although all done in a loopy literary nonsense style of course.

XaW Files Chapter 6: Khabarov Stroganov Tretyakov Art History Mix

Khabarovsk, Khabarovsk
so well planned
I never got lost.

Named after Khabarov
an adventurer entrepreneur
once manager for Stroganovs.

Stroganovs were an important family
remembered in food and art
like latter’s showpiece Tretyakov gallery.

There’s Morning in a Pine Forest
by SavitskyShishkin
with a bear family looking cutest.

The Bogatyrs by Vasnetsov
has three warriors
and a greenYgrey background.

Khabarov was second to the Amur
after Poyarkov’s three-year expedition
three years before.

Khabarov was there in 1649-50
returning from 1650-53
end of history after refusing expedition 3.

I hope there was a happy ending for Yerofey
because his first name has two Ys
and rhymes with Greenygrey.

Kamchatka Search Goes On Coincidence and Literary Nonsense Poem

After the Greenygrey left to search for the A.W.O.L. Andy Wolfhol on April 1st it soon found itself travelling around Kamchatka. We have since discovered that Swedish rock band Kamchatka released an album named The Search Goes On in February. kamchatka

Greenygrey’s search hadn’t even started, but it’s now in a similar Kamchatka search as Kamchatka the band were three months ago.

XaW Files Episode 4 :
Around Kamchatka Shore

I must thank Karaginsky
for it did release me
in a downward direction
shot out its southern section.

Only resting in Palana
after rounding Kamchatka
I paddled all day, one way
come what may, to Penzhina Bay.

After widening an exhausted smile
resting on the mouth in a pile
I fell asleep dreaming I ran
waking two bays away in Magadan.

Karcher Advert Inspires Literary Nonsense Poem and Explanation

I’d never heard of Karcher
until sitting in an armchair
of my mind
oh what a find
its new advert is full
of green and grey so cool
and even has a yellow middling
like the greenYgrey rebranding:

This blog post was created by a combined team effort pooling the resources of the television team helped by Harry Silhouetteof-Wolfhowlingonhill and poetry personnel wiling away with William Wolfsworth.

Werewolf of Oz Last Episode Ends Australia Day

As the sun sets on Australia Day
in Africa, Europe and the U.K.,
but is still shining bright
in Latin America, Canada and the U.S.A.
it’s time for the last episode in the serialisation of the satirical comedy classic travel quest epic Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps.

Werewolf of Oz Thrilling Conclusion

Hi, it’s Greenygrey. Yes, that means you get to find out what the commotion out at sea that only Grey could see…
really was; as well as reading a couple more little literary nonsense poems and one more example of classic comedy wordplay.

I’m sure you can’t wait, so I’ll let you get on with your virtual rambling. Thanks for following the epic journey, and the book is still available from the links below it, with no plans to discount its price this year.

Chapter 142.  The End: of the Werewolf of Oz Era

It was Tazzy! I squawked with joy before flying down to meet him; whereupon I changed back into a more recognisable werewolf form. We greeted before I asked him what he was doing here.

Tazzy said he often swam up this way; after all, it is the Tasman Sea.

I laughed, before exclaiming, ‘Of course!’ The last riddle of the ramble had been solved… as far as I was concerned. What about you?
I now felt free to return to the Greenygrey world.

Pret Dolphin-Friendly Tuna

Tazzy was continuing north, so I shapeshifted into a dolphin-friendly tuna and swam with him.

We swam side by side
until he dived beneath
to turn around
at top of Barrier Reef;
my original Oz
landmark brief;
we happily said goodbye
finality’s welcome relief.

I jumped out of the water and shapeshifted into a wedge-tailed eagle for the long flight back to a long awaited reunion with Green in the Greenygrey world.

Two years in the writing
sometimes flying, mostly hiking
Werewolf of Oz kept moving
experiencing, shapeshifting, grooving.

Family Fortunes Wolf World Poem Parody

Wolf Family Fortunes

There’s a show in the wolf world
like Family Fortunes
the quiz show on British television
called Pack Portions.

There’s a wolf quizmaster
like Vernon Kay
called Herman Gee
some think he’s a greenygrey.

His alpha female is fit
like Tess Daly
named Howl Nightly
they live in a den most stately.

Knowing WoO

Hi, it’s William Wolfsworth, poetry correspondent at the Greenygrey inspired by the great Romantic poet William Wordsworth.

Although previously in Goodbye to WoO week we’ve shown  how the Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps has put Australia on the map and changed its culture with the Boomerang social craze, some of you are probably wondering what the WoO’s done for us.

Knowing Me: 70 Poems of Literary Nonsense Poetry

Well, I think the Greenygrey is much happier within itself since its epic Ozyssey, with Green saying Grey seems much closer to it since it achieved the dust sandy path travel quest, and met lots of great characters along the way.

And I think that writing up its journey, and including seventy literary nonsense poems, has made it a better writer and poet, as the above poem suggests to me.
