David Bowie Song Adapted for Self-Parody Student Alphas Comedy

After my recent blog about pseudo alphas and silly students, and the rip-roaring success of my adaptation of Kiss’s King of the Night Time World to Queen of the greenYgrey World, I have ingeniously adapted David Bowie’s Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps) to Pseudo Alphas (and Silly Students), with more than a hint of self-parody:

Not all ‘alphas’ are bad to the bone, or students silly to the core, of course. Hopefully you are a good one, and have great ones around you. I have learnt from some ‘alphas’, and enjoyed the dry humour I used to read in the student paper; it’s just a question of greenYgrey positivity and negativity. Most people get out alive, but unfortunately some do not.

Afternoon  of Life is Different to Morning; and Evening/Night

I don’t want to dwell on that, as I know too much empathy and evocation can be fuel for the fire. When I started to think people wanted me dead, rather than providing a fitting funeral, it was a REASON TO LIVE!

I used to dread being this age; losing my youth and hair etc; but now I’m here this is what I am, and the worries of youth is replaced with the ambivalence of age, and contentment of being more at one with nature.

In true greenYgrey style I then worry what those who aren’t going to make it might think; the terminally ill children; and I can just say that they have experienced positives and negatives, which is all life is; just compacted into a short magnified time, like waking into a bright busy morning and sleeping the rest of the day. As I have learned to love nature more as I’ve aged, they have their magical love of animals, and belief (maybe because children remember where they’ve been before being born?) in other realities to those taught to them in school and life.

If you like the above self-parody and satire, mixed with deep Doctor of Philosophy decade of creative writing  contemplation and insights, you will probably like my self(ish – the ish is another new innovation; I wish I had enough genius to share it out, but I’ve only got enough for myself unfortunately!)-proclaimed genius books (Russell’s Revolution refugees welcome!!) at Amazon and elsewhere… especially my magnum opus  XaW Files: Beyond Humanity:

Happy Y-Day with Annie Lennox

I hope you’ve had a great Y-day, and it’s helped you cope with Blue Monday, supposedly the most depressing day of the year, in the northern hemisphere. Apparently it was a misty morning again this morning, but I didn’t see it; it had evaporated before I awoke. So I also missed the ‘blood wolf moon’ in the early hours too. I did see the full moon earlier, not knowing about it beforehand. So quite an exciting eventful day for Y-Day, although the weather for most of the day has been ordinary greenYgrey.

Y-Day: Looking Back and Forward

I think I had too much T yesterday, celebrating T20, Y-day eve, so I’m T-teetotal today; a day of Tabstinence from after this paragraph, replacing it with a – dash.
-hankfully, ins-ead of wri-ing more poe-ry -oday for Y-day, midpoint of -he mistYmuse win-er fes-ival four mon-hs I remembered Annie Lennox’s Why song. Moreover, when I wa-ched the video I saw she glamorously POPs (PinkyOrangePurple).

Sorry if i-‘s a li–le sad, apar- from -he wordplay -o -he le–er self-parody comedy, but Y-day is a day of mixed emo-ions, remembering -he mis- mon-hs, while looking forward -o -he muse, and the re-urn of spring… which should be more amusing!

Kate Moss Opens Mist Evaporation Week Final Countdown (not really!)

Parody comedy disclaimer: Kate Moss took no part in this blog post, and hasn’t heard of me as far as I know.
Harry Enfield did a good parody comedy celebrity show recently, set on Richard Branson’s island (I use his Virgin Media creation, and have really requested a space flight or visit to his island as a bonus in the comments of his Linked In posts; where reality and parody meet; but to no avail so far!), and including J.K. Rowling, who of course became G.G. Howling in the greenYgrey world.
I thought Enfield’s parody was more South Park to mine being Simpsons. Vic and Bob’s new series parody is also quite close to the bone. I like it, and just mention it here for those critics of mine who don’t understand parody/satire.

Nice Friendly Educative Pagan Festival (not taking itself too seriously! As Kate Moss doesn’t from the Ab Fab film!!)

With only four days to go until mistYmuse Y-Day on January 21st, marking a month since the Winter Solstice, and half way stage of the mistYmuse, covering November 21st to March 21st, Mist (Most Ideal Sunrise Times) Evaporation Week (MEW) is really hotting up, with the ceremonial departure of the M, as we prepare to move into the muse half of the most winterish four months of the northern hemisphere year, until the spring equinox.

Kate Moss Parody Comedy

Kate Moss was named the Queen of the greenYgrey world, and a couple of days ago I saw a news story on MSN that it was her 45th birthday yesterday; I didn’t know/remember before, trying not to take too much notice of my celebrity heroes/heroines.

Using the height of my music-making talents, I adapted Kiss’s King of the Night Time World, swapping King for Queen, and Night Time for greenYgrey. You’ll have to do the imagining yourself!

When I first saw the photo below in the article, of Kate greenYgreying in the Ab Fab film, which I saw for the first time recently, I thought her arms and head create a W, which I thought was ironic in mistYmuse Y week, although the W was a big letter in the werewolf greenYgrey world!

Then, using a little thinking outside the box, Sherlock-style, which Kate is famous for herself, I realised that a W is an upside-down M, and that’s the letter that’s disappearing today from MIST, one day after Kate’s birthday! So thanks to Kate for kicking off the MEW party in the style she has epitomised during the supermodel era and beyond…

It also reminds me of Folding Mirror poetry!!

Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop Parody Comedy Worked For Me!

Goop products have worked for me, Dr. Marc Latham. My hair was balding and greying until using Goop, and now look at me:

Self-Parody Hilarity

No, the above is an example of my brilliant self-parody comedy, that went over the heads of most people most of my life, making me seem boastful or deluded, rather than a comedy genius along the lines of Peter Sellers or Tommy Cooper.

Sorry if I built your hopes up about Goop, and that is really Gwyneth Paltrow in the photo.

Critical Writer of PhD Standard

This is also an example of greenYgreyism at its most intricate, and admittedly confusing to the average person, who believes in supporting who they like without criticism, and doing the opposite with those they don’t.

While I like Gwyneth Paltrow’s look and healthy living attitude, and generally think she’s doing good, the article I saw this morning that inspired this blog is a negative one, after Goop was criticised for making misleading advertising claims.

I think the main lesson this teaches is the danger of companies becoming too big and profit driven, with targets etc taking over from the original good intentions.

Great greenYgrey

That’s one reason why I kept the greenYgrey to me only: so I could control it to its original intentions, and not let it be turned into something it wasn’t.

It doesn’t seem to have done me much good though, and those who were unethical, like Russell Brand, were rewarded by mainstream society and the ‘counter-culture’ that’s supposed to be rebelling against it!

Hopefully some of the greenYgrey messages got through in the end, but I don’t know if it was the greenYgrey or just other factors. That era, started by New Labour, is over now, and some of those problems have been made better… but others have surfaced… like the human ‘fault lines’ reminiscent of geological ones I wrote a poem about on this site over six years ago.

Political Opportunity Missed

I think if New Labour had kept immigration under control and turned Blighty into a nice green environmental country reminiscent of Scandinavian ones most of the problems we’ve been struggling against this century wouldn’t have happened.

Yet our leaders continue to think we must have some mission, and make life difficult for everyone; that when things seem nice and quiet we need another challenge, either challenging the ‘bad guys’ abroad or letting in millions to the country.

Do they not realise that they are allied to ‘bad guys’, such as Saudi Arabia, and that there are a lot of ‘bad guys’ coming into the country… including our elite schools and universities, where many of the world’s dictators have studied… and looked down at people like me!

On the other side we have the far left wanting to change everything, which will mean another five or ten years of upheaval and discord; just to take the country back to the previous century! I don’t want fascism, but they don’t make democracy look good!

Parody Comedy Beyond Humanity Creates Historic Sunshine Cover

The song ‘You Are My Sunshine’ has been around for about seventy years according to Wikipedia, and as far as I know, and I guess almost certainly, the sunshine has been used metaphorically for a human.

After my historic May wedding to the sun in Gretna Green we’ve enjoyed a wonderful summer, with a long honeymoon period, a cooling off period, and an Indian Summer rekindling of the old passionate heat.

So I’d like to here and now bring you the first version of You Are My Sunshine I do believe, is introduced and intended to not be a metaphor, but is indeed truly meant for our sun; the star of our solar system; and a top ten star in our Milky Way galaxy.

I could’ve recorded it myself, but I think this version will sound better, provides publicity to a good singer, and is of course easier for me! But please imagine it’s me singing to the sun… at least once, while appreciating Jasmine Thompson’s talent the rest of the time!!

Disclaimer: I don’t know Jasmine Thompson at all, and she had nothing to do with this blog. This video was the first suggestion on YouTube when I searched the song.

Banksy Thanksy? References greenYgrey in Sotheby’s Display

MSN featured a video on the news this morning wondering if it was Banksy filming his own shredding stunt, which I think was an excellent return to form, for me anyway, surprising me at least, returning me to how I felt when his/their artwork first started appearing. They were an inspiration to me and my Greenygrey/greenYgrey concept. I thought his dismaland theme park was like the old-fashioned greenygrey sunless world, before its yellow core rebranding (with a big chunk of parody/satire comedy, mixing sunshine and cowardice connotations, greenYgrey style!).

Great Artists Reference Each Other

Banksy referenced Picasso on Instagram explaining the painting shredding: “The urge to destroy is also a creative urge” – Picasso

Did he also reference the greenYgrey as he started his video filming the scene in Sotheby’s (presuming it was him), choosing to include this rebranded greenYgrey painting, another homage to continue the great greenYgrey epic classic tale; while at the same time commenting on how the crowd were only interested in his ‘celebrity status’ image, ignoring the great greenYgrey art in front of them!:

screenshot-3161.png

As Banksy explained how he created his art, I will also let you in on my secret. I read MSN this morning, watched the video, went back and stopped it where I saw the greenYgrey near the start, and then screenprinted it.

Then I cropped it to the finished image, leaving the timeline visible, to show it was right at the start.

There was also some Banksy inspiration to my wandering wondering poetry, although there were many others too, from past decades and centuries.

By total coincidence I was playing Suicidal Tendencies’ Art of Rebellion (1992) yesterday morning, and thought that was relevant to Banksy’s shredded painting, as well as the Mona Lisa in flames being very greenYgrey… years before my greenYgrey… maybe Banksy was referencing ST… via me!
