T Dies a Thousand Deaths… for arT

The first T-20 Y-day eve is upon us. It was quite some weather day too, with the mist turning up on the last day of its two-months part of mistYmuse, and then evaporating as the sun strengthened in the afternoon, as it’s supposed to do in Mist Evaporation Week (MEW) before a pinky POP (PinkyOrangePurple) sunset (as written in yesterday’s blog post, although the sun doesn’t really rise and fall as it looks to us, it does rise and set to us; they are all human concepts, along with solstices and equinoxes etc).

I didn’t know how I was going to celebrate it, and then thought of writing a poem containing twenty Ts! It only reached seven! So I wrote another one, which had twenty-two!! So, thinking of marketing, that’s nine bonus Ts, coloured in tawny, making it quite some T20 party… sure is where I wanna be x 3!!!

T29

all was quiet
on Y-day eve morning
thick mist reminded one
of green(y-Y)grey dawning

not if ‘you’re’ travelling, my ‘self-ish’ thoughts unravelling

sun shone through
the sky turned blue
as if remembering Y-rise
a nice surprise

Yesterday it dawned on me
todayiTy fits into philosotea
part of my philosophy
time after coffilosophy
written in prose poetry

trouble with my  psyche is, there’s no words for this

I remember Cyndi Lauper
time after time
but there’s no music
for something so lethargic
sky pinks I remember magic

The song doesn’t have any message for or from me, and was just the music that came into my head as I wrote ‘time after’, mixed with Eminem, who I’ve cited before. Just watched the video, and amazed she does a T at the end. A fitting finale for the T20 party!!

New Mirror Poem from Writer Genius Wordsmith

I started having these ideas last night, so they would have been philosotea if I’d drank tea at tea-time, but I didn’t drink it yesterday, and just had a couple of coffees, as the second one was a bit late. I was listening to a new album by the Spacelords, and think it helped my mind rise, as Goldray did last year with their POPtastic (PinkyOrangePurple) Rising record.

Goldray - Rising (2017)

A new band to me, The Spacelords also had a great greenYgrey world cover for their Liquid Sun album.

Too Late for Managenius

With lots of talk about football manager genius this week, and having created my wrIus writer/ing-genius word for myself (and others who follow, or that have already been) – such new words combining parts of two others are called blends according to the Oxford Dictionary – I thought last night I hadn’t heard managenius used. So I looked it up, and think I was right about a football context, but it has been used by a French management consultancy.

I also had a few ideas for new Folding Mirror poems, or parts of the same one:

double negative fm
can tell badness of others as side with dark side (written about in my bipolarity poetry)
interpret my behaviour from wrong basis

I started off with the idea of writing it this morning, in a state of complete coffilosophy, although the spirit of philosotea. It ended up being a little different, but with some similarities, leaving the door open for another poem or two from the ideas above.

The title was inspired by an article I read this week about chimps, and how they share our dark side, suggesting an evolutionary link. I loved chimps when I was young, mostly inspired by the PG Tips advert I think, so I’ve been disappointed to see they’ve got a dark side, but accept it. However, the good news of chimps’ similarity to humanity is that on this year’s series of Animals With Cameras a chimp was shown washing its hands, cleaning its teeth and thoughtfully weaving together a nest from leaves (clip available on website above – don’t know if available outside U.K.).

I laugh to myself because I think a lot about other things while zoning out to the television, even if the programme’s interesting; I think down to Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), but don’t know how far I am on the spectrum? I often have to rewind programmes having missed a few minutes, as I’ve written about before, and included in my poetry.

That’s one of the reasons why I consider it dangerous to be around one-dimensional people in the new ‘Big Brother’ age!

Kenco Cofficionado Inspired by Me the Coffilosopher and my Coffilosophy?

I was watching The Lobster (2015) today, having recorded it on television last night. It has lots of offbeat comedy around a central theme of animal transformation, making me think there was a lot of my greenYgrey were concept relevance. However, there has been a lot of such comedy in fiction, and a lot of it inspired me. But then my neurons really sparked when they saw a new Kenco advert for the first time, and that really rang a bell, as its central character was a cofficionado; and is also the star of their website.

That’s after I sent them an email last September telling them about my coffilosopher/coffilosophy concept, and never heard back:

to Kenco
 Dear Kenco,
Last year I took part quite a lot in your campaign to help the people of Central America choose a coffee-growing peaceful path.
I am a real doctor of philosophy, and love writing on coffee. So, during my last book, combining philosophy and fantasy fiction, I declared myself the first self-titled coffilosopher, combining coffee and philosopher.
Although there have been many coffilosophers before me, including my writing hero Jack Kerouac; and since I declared myself a coffilosopher I read Patti Smith’s memoir M Train, where she writes of being a dedicated coffee connoisseur; I am the first doctor of philosopher to declare myself a coffilosopher as far as I know.
I’ve recently reached the end of my decade of writing and am currently thinking about options for the future. I was wondering if you would be interested in my work at all, either sponsoring me as a coffee advocate, or using the coffilosopher term and concept for your advertising.
Thanks for your time, Marc. ☕🍵

Should I take it as a coffilosophy compliment and Valentine’s Day show of love? Or am I being taken for a mug (pun intended!).

Coffilosophy first appeared in my XaW Files book. If you value original ideas maybe you’ll read it to see that and many more such ideas and concepts:

Rafa Nadal Wins Werewolf Style after Joining Team GG

Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams, back with the second part of my two-pronged opening 2013 to a sporting theme Fantastic Mr. Fox Greenygrey comedy-satire marketing campaign centred on Spain. Yes, not only was Marc Latham kitted out in greenygrey for his big sports event of the year, but Spain’s top tennis player Rafa Nadal has chosen greenygrey for his new kit.

Rafa Nadal Wins in California Comeback

And the greenygrey worked wonders, as Nadal won the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells, California. Nadal, who has always showed the potential to be a great werewolf, beat Juan Martín Del Potro 4-6, 6-3, 6-4 in the final, after also being 0-2 down in the second set. Nadal earlier knocked out his old nemesis Roger Federer, who seems more of a vampire.

It was a great win for Nadal in his comeback from a serious injury, suffered before he chose greenygrey, and the Greenygrey was delighted to be chosen as part of his return and rehabilitation. Here’s an image of Nadal and the Greenygrey celebrating his final victory from the Guardian:

Barcelona Marathon 2013 Photos and Video

Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams, sports correspondent at the Greenygrey. With Max Cliffwolf on leave for personal reasons, I have been given the fun and prestigious position of temporary comedy-satire sports marketing guru @ Greenygrey. I started the campaign off in Spain this year, which hasn’t had much time for greenygrey, what with its yellowyblue landscape and yellowyred flag.

Barcelona Marathon goes Greenygrey

To begin my cunningly clever campaign I brought out our very own Yellowstone geyser geezer, Old Faithful, Marc Latham. Kitting him out in greenygrey, I sent him off on a 26.2mile/42km jog around Barcelona for their marathon 2013.

While Marc didn’t hit the headlines, or finish in his fastest time, putting a positive spin on it he did run for the longest amount of time in his career, finishing in 4 hours, 27 minutes and 50 seconds.

Barcelona 2013 became the fourth in Marc’s post-first-marathon-in-2004 ambition to run a marathon every three years until he’s 50 in 2016. So, one more marathon to go, all being well in three years.

There are photos of Marc Latham running in the Barcelona Marathon 2013 available at Marathon Photos and a video at MySports. Marc was number 9269. Here’s the first photo, of Marc crossing the line (he says he didn’t feel as tired and slow as he looked in some of the photos and videos!):

Greenygrey in Premier League sponsored by Pricey Ethical Supermarket

Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams, now fully recovered sports correspondent at the Greenygrey after the incredible summer of Olympic sport.

Greenygrey Goalie Kits in Premier League

Last season, Rob Green helped West Ham to promotion from the Championship to the Premiership wearing a glorious greenygrey goalie kit. Green moved on in the summer, and West Ham have changed strip, but the Greenygrey will play in the Premiership thanks to Reading FC, which has opted to kit out their goalies in this wonderful greenygrey combo this season:

It is fitting that they are sponsored by Waitrose, as the supermarket chain has a greenygrey colour combo logo layout design:
