Scorpions Aerosmith Inspired Mirror Poem Argues New Media Limits Freedom of Speech

While I like Rammstein mainly for their melodies, as with most music, I also like their controversial topics pushing the boundaries of thought, and freedom of speech, like their compatriots The Scorpions before them. When I was a youth I found it interesting because it was new, now I like it because it keeps up the freedom of speech in music, and continues to make you think and ask questions.

While social media has a lot of good uses, I think it has impaired this, with everything taken at face value, and interpreted within the most basic usual first impressions promoted by political correctness: everything is racist, sexist, homophobic etc.

I don’t want to spoil the poem too much, so will let you read it, but will answer any questions in the comments. I’ll look forward to communicating with you… especially if you think I’m being homophobic or sexist; or transgender or gay!

Doctor of Philosophy, Explaining 3 Dimensionality

He’s a woman – she’s a man
Scorpions are transphobic, or tran
Dude looks like a lady
same Aerosmith double-dimensionality
social media reduces to one
choose your side, have some fun

new age of political correctness, conversation police will get us

finding word ghosts, you thought dead
what’s that joke you said
triple-dimensionality stripped bare
Latham guilty of talking hair
You rationalise, calling him woman
If he thinks – women all bad

 

Sir David Attenborough is a Modern Philosopher Mirror Poem

The fourth Folding Mirror poem in the new wave, started off with the two outer lines a few days ago, then I filled the rest in this morning. I noticed mutter rhymes with clutter and fitted into the gossip theme. One of my favourite Rammstein songs is Mutter (embedded below), but I didn’t know what it meant until researching it for the poem (I’d always imagined it meaning the same as in English!). After finding out it meant mother I then paired it with father and its German translation; and mirrored it with some English-German philosophers.

Poem Philosophy Explanation

The female mother/mutter is mirrored (reflection switching sides) with Mary Wollstonecraft and Hannelore Wolf. I didn’t know any female German philosophers and looked them up on Wikipedia. Wolf was the most apt name, especially as Wollstonecraft became Wolfstonecraft in the greenYgrey world. That might seem like a supernatural coincidence, but is probably more down to my researching perseverance… although it didn’t take long… and my self-proclaimed genius connecting ability!

Nietzsche speaks for himself (not any more though), while I included Sir David Attenborough because I consider him an important modern philosopher, and his name rhymed with clear.

The poem contains a reference to my post-Folding Mirror new philosophy concept coffilosophy, and was written through another one; a pristine POP (PinkyOrangePurple) sunrise; from which arose POPilosophy.

Gossip ist Schwein, Silence is Golden

chitter chatter, creating clutter
vater zu father, mother to mutter
on streets, in workplace
myth creation, without trace

tell me no lie, false data obscures why

written books, theory paradigms
in solitude, (l)on(e)ly times
Wollstonecraft to Wolf, Neitzsche zu Attenborough
coffee coffilosophy, cleaning clear

Australia Neknominate and Boomerangit Crazes

While there is no doubt that the satirical comedy epic travel quest Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps has put Australia on the map for the outside world, is there any evidence of it leaving a lasting cultural impact on the land down under.

Australia Still Winning Cricket and Boomeranging

Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams with a satirical comedy sort of sports report. It seems that as long as the Australia cricket team are winning, the boomerang will continue, and having just won the one-day series, it looks as if the boomerang will continue for a little while more.

In fact, there is now a boomeranging kangaroo on the insignia of the baggy green, personified by Brian in the Werewolf of Oz.

It is surviving in Australia parallel with the more dangerous and unruly neknominate.

Boomeranging Rides Wave of Neknominating

Unfortunately, it is neknominate; which revolves around beer-drinking;  that is grabbing the headlines, such as in the Metro last Wednesday.

Fortunately, a surfer combined a beer-necking with the golden oldie craze greenygreying and a new development in boomeranging.

This meant that the first documented photo of a double one-armed twisting boomerang made it into the British media. Moreover, the surfer showed great skill to vary the boomeranging arms between the closed-armed boomerang seen above, and the open-armed boomerang below.

He is obviously an experienced boomeranger, so please don’t attempt this pose in your nearest sea.
