Australia and Peru Qualify for World Cup 2018

After recent blog posts here featured photos from my travels to Australia and Peru, they became the last two qualifiers for World Cup 2018 this week. It is Peru’s first qualification since 1982. Here’s some more photos from Oz and Paddington’s home:

Amber Heard goes Green as Rachel Riley Red in AAW Remembrance Day Special

It seems I owe Amber Heard an apology, as cool electric car man Elon Musk has nicely and intelligently said that it was mostly Amber Heard that had broken off their relationship; not him because she had been manipulative, as reported in the media when they split. Amber has thus gone green in AAW (Adult Angelic Waifs). Maybe her problem is that she has dated richer men, and needs a poorer one?

Royal Princesses and Rachel Riley 

While I recently said I preferred pink to red in light (pun intended) of twilight colours; it was also reported today on MSN News that it’s Princess Kate (British royal family reality and greenYgrey world fantasy) and her daughter Charlotte’s favourite colour; red is a great colour for women’s fashion.

Rachel Riley looked ravishing in red last night, and at a charity do too, although the venue has hellish connotations if you believe in monotheism, which I don’t of course, with their traditional red kit representing Manchester United’s nickname of the Red Devils. I believe Rachel Riley is angelic enough to ward off any evil spirits!

Scorpions In Trance Update

I was listening to The Scorpions In Trance album on YouTube as I read the above stories on MSN this morning funnily enough, reminding me that I’d read a Scorpions article on Classic Rock that provides an update to their controversial album covers story that I featured in XaW Files: Beyond Humanity.

At the time, the Wikipedia information seemed to blame the record company, so that’s what I used, but now it seems that it was more Uli Jon Roth’s idea than the record company, so apologies to them. From Classic Rock:

‘As the owner of said guitar, Roth subsequently expressed his shame at the photograph – though Schenker says it was Roth who actually suggested it.
“It was his idea,” says an unrepentant Schenker. “It was a great sleeve for us. It’s sexy, it’s mystical and above all it’s not brutal.”’

The greenYgrey of In Trance

Moreover, Schenker’s In Trance song meaning also sounds like my time writing the greenYgrey, and becoming a Nietzsche superman, Buddhist enlightened: “It’s about trying to get into the middle of life – not the extreme left or right,” he explains. “You can get stuck in a rut, doing things you don’t like, over and over again. It had to do with drinking, maybe.”

I still love drinking, and especially golden ales, which doesn’t have anything to do with my taste in women; that’s just a coincidence. The woman on the In Trance cover is also a classic rock model of an AAW: one that will always keep me in trance… although I had to escape that music scene… back to the safety of classic rock!

The In Trance of greenYgrey

Alternative cover

While I clarified before that the celebrities are the ones I meant and referred to in my greenYgrey writing there was a Rachel Rachel Riley lookalike, and Elle McPherson soundalike waify version from my time in trance; as well as a Kate or two from my previous pre-uni life, when there was a woman who could have been an inspiration for my lucid dreaming, but wasn’t; and one who ran and ate healthy long before me.

I write the above in warm thanks, hoping to please them if they read it. I don’t expect anything in return, and clarified that it was the celebrities in question because I didn’t want other women seeking AAW status, and being disappointed if I didn’t give it. It became a pressure and anxiety that affected me, and I’m not that socially comfortable anyway.

AAW will aawlways live on, as it has been written, and hopefully there will be many more generations of women who like to look good, and that will have the freedom to do so. I’m getting a bit old to be appreciating it in public now, so please don’t expect the extra-aaw-dinary… except in my writing!

If feminists think I’m being exploitative, well, here’s a topless one of me from Oz in 1989:

Danish Dynamite Alright on the Night

I’m old enough to remember when Denmark shocked the football world in 1992 to win the European Championships after only qualifying because Yugoslavia was at war, and couldn’t take part. I visited Copenhagen in 1995, travelling down to the Viking Museum in Roskilde, staying with a traveller I’d met in Rio de Janeiro. I also spent a comfortable (almost hygge: trendy Danish concept for cosy; adding a little parody comedy to my Scandi sychophancy!) night in beautiful Copenhagen airport returning from heavenly Helsinki last year. I’ll try and bring you some Danish dynamite photos soon.

Scandinavia3 Qualify from greenYgrey3

Denmark was of course the setting for Beowulf, with the protagonist joining the greenYgrey ramblers there into Sweden, but not as far as Iceland; those three Scandinavian countries have now qualified for the 2018 World Cup.

To celebrate Denmark qualifying for the World Cup here’s some football photos from Rio of Copacabana Beach, where I played just after Brazil won the 1994 World Cup, and the Maracanã Stadium; followed by a Danish episode of XaW Files: Beyond Humanity:

Love Reunion

This episode sees part of the greenYgrey protagonist reunited with anagram star Love the mixed-up vole’s one-parent offspring, supporting such parents, without recommending it, and a classic story from Beowulf of him fighting a dragon adapted to modern Copenhagen through a theme park rollercoaster story.

There’s some great gYgPOPing (greenYgrey PinkyOrangePurple) images on the Wikipedia page:

Chapter 8 Episode 10

‘Gee, it’s great to see you again, Lovus and Lovulus, and you too g,’ I said.

Back together as greenY, we democratically elected to tell that story from the point of view of my reenY rather than my g. In fact, it was a unanimous decision, as my g liked the way my reenY had followed the voles by throwing in a Gee at the start of their reunion exclamation; I used the plural their before reunion counting reenY as five separate letters rather than one word.

Tivoli Titanic Beowulf Battle

I was just about to ask Lovus and Lovulus where they’d been, when there was an almighty sound of crashing and banging behind me. I looked around, and could hardly believe my eyes.

The Bjergbanen and Dæmonen rollercoasters were locked in a titanic tussle, wrapped around each other like a boa and python fighting to the death. I looked at the others, wondering what was going on. Chris looked as puzzled as me, and Be was still nowhere to be seen. Lovus and Lovulus had taken cover under the Waltzers.

The younger and more powerful Dæmonen looked to be getting on top, but then the Bjergbanen seemed to use its age and experience with a loop the loop move, locking its nightmarish nemesis in a hold that proved to be the deciding blow in a short but scintillating scrap.

Bjergbanen Brings Bodvar Biarke By Beowulf

After regrouping, I finally asked Lovus and Lovulus what they’d been doing since we parted, way back in Wurzburg. They told me they and their mother surfaced in Hamburg, and made their way north to Copenhagen. They felt right at home when they reached Tivoli.

After a day or three, Love had wanted to ramble, but they weren’t ready to leave. Love had seen they were so happy amongst all the fun exciting rides that she’d agreed to let them stay when they asked.

I was about to say it was a lovely heartwarming story when I thought I heard Chris welcoming Be behind me.

I turned around and saw it was Be, although there was something about him that looked a little different. Maybe it was because he looked like a bear.

‘Hi guys,’ said Be. ‘I know you’ll understand greenY, being a chameleon werewolf who changes appearance a lot; and I think you should do too Chris, being a naturalist who knows a thing or two about metamorphosis. I have now shapeshifted into my Swedish version of Bodvar Biarke for our journey into my Geatland home. My father was a bear, so you could call me a werebear. It wasn’t a straight shapeshift this time though, for I was the Bjergbanen fighting the Dæmonen, as my Beowulf character has to tussle with a dragon foe after Grendel and his mother. Now, my story is up to date, and I can take you to the great Geatland in peace.’

‘Thank you Bo,’ I said. ‘You still look like the same berserker to me. Welcome back into the fold, and please let me introduce you to a couple of my vole companions, Lovus and Lovulus.’

O What Wordplay

The new acquaintances got on like a Viking funeral longship on fire. I loved seeing the young voles all confident and grown up, but that did make me miss their mother even more. I also liked Bo’s new look, and related to him even more as a werebear. He had seemed like a monotheist before, but a nice one, like the Mildly Monotheist Moby in Oz.

Thinking about it, Moby’s two middle letters spelt backwards are bo, which corresponds with Beowulf’s new old abbreviated identity. As Oz is upside down to this world, maybe they are mirror characters.

Moreover, if you combine the first two letters of the voles’ names with Bo it spells lobo, which is Spanish for wolf, and a commonly used word in the English language too.

References

The classic version of Beowulf and Grendel was written by Christians in the eighth century, but it was set in fifth-century Scandinavia, and influenced by folklore of that place and time.
Wikipedia: The standard view is that, if Beowulf himself has a ‘cognate’ character in Rolf Kraki’s story, it is Bödvar Bjarki (Bodvar Biarke), who also has a younger companion, Hjalti (Hialte) – perhaps matching the Beowulf character Wiglaf. Beowulf comes from Geatland (= Götaland) and one of Bödvar Bjarki’s elder brothers, Thorir, becomes a king of Götaland. Moreover, like Beowulf, Bödvar Bjarki arrives in Denmark from Götaland (Geatland), and upon arriving in Denmark he kills a beast that has been ravaging the Danish court for two years. The monster in Hrólf Kraki’s saga, however, is quite unlike the Grendel of Beowulf; but it does have characteristics of a more typical dragon, a creature which appears later in Beowulf. Just as Beowulf and Wiglaf slay a dragon at the end of Beowulf, Bödvar Bjarki and Hjalti help each other slay the creature in Denmark.
Proponents of this theory[who?] argue that both the names Beowulf (lit. “bee-wolf”, a kenning for “bear”) and Bjarki are associated with bears. Bodvar Bjarki is constantly associated with bears, his father actually being one.
In some of the Hrólf Kraki material, Bödvar Bjarki aids Adils in defeating Adils’ uncle Áli, in the Battle on the Ice of Lake Vänern. In Beowulf, the hero Beowulf aids Eadgils in Eadgils’ war against Onela. As far as this Swedish adventure is concerned, Beowulf and Bödvar Bjarki are one and the same. This match supports the hypothesis that the adventure with the dragon is also originally derived from the same story.
Hrólfr Kraki, Hroðulf, Rolfo, Roluo, Rolf Krage (early 6th century[1]) was a legendary Danish king who appears in both Anglo-Saxon and Scandinavian tradition. His name would in his own language (Proto-Norse) have been *Hrōþiwulfaz[2] (famous wolf).

Sweden ABBA-Cadabra Magic to World Cup… Despite Richard Ayoade Put Down… Interpreted by Me as Parody Comedy

After the Iceland football team has won unprecedented success during and since the writing and publishing of XaW Files: Beyond Humanity Sweden qualified for their first World Cup since 2006 last night, knocking Italy out, who will miss the World Cup for the first time since 1958, which was a couple of World Cups before I was born; born just in time for England’s 1966 World Cup win, when I was still in my birthplace of Saint Helier, Jersey.

I watched the 1990 World Cup in Asia (Thailand), 1994 one in South America (Bolivia) and 1998 one in Africa (Uganda and Kenya). Here’s a photo from La Paz, with another British guy and two Aussies:

Robin Olsen brought back the golden age of greenYgrey goalkeeping by keeping a clean-sheet in both games, with some great saves last night:

Robin Olsen

His great greenYgreying performance reminded me of our nature correspondent, Chris Packwolf (inspired by Chris Packham), telling the greenYgrey ramblers about three Swedish footballers in Chapter 8 of greenYgrey3:

‘I’m sorry,’ said Chris, ‘it’s just that I was researching Gothenburg on Wikipedia before breakfast, and found Gunnar Gren. He was one of the Swedish-AC Milan football forward trio known as Gre-No-Li. I was going to mention later how both names reminded me of greenygrey. Gunnar Gren has ten letters, two Gs, and Gren is all grey apart from the last letter; while I think Gre-No-Li has a nice greenygrey ring to it. Then Y’s dream and ordering granola just seemed too uncanny, even for an X Files parody.’

‘Yes, that is eerie,’ I responded, before adding, ‘which I just realised has the same amount of Es as greenygrey. Great work Chris, and thanks for reminding me that you’re not just a natural world expert.’

ABBA Age: Ayoade anti-ABBA Humour

During the New Labour Multicultural Fascism years I joked that I should go to Sweden or somewhere else in Scandinavia as a male feminist gender refugee, being filtered (fooltered) by macho male department leaders similar to Weinstein seems to be, but it seems Sweden has taken a similar path from news reports of higher rape figures and sporadic terrorism; and some of my experiences suffering abuse from non-native Swedes when I visited.

Hopefully Sweden knows what its doing, and can accommodate the problem. There are also benefits to immigration of course, such as more chance of sporting success.

I watched Richard Ayoade’s Travel Man: 48 Hours In… Stockholm this week and enjoyed it. Apart from the city’s beauty and general niceness, I liked the comedy way he asked the Swedish guide how Sweden could ever produce a musical band to compare to Norway’s (he’s half-Norwegian) A-HA, obviously leading to the response of ABBA, whereupon he mocked spitting on the floor.

I also liked and related to his closing joke about how he could be just as difficult in any city in Europe, in response to his travel partner saying she’d prefer to return without him, but…

Marc-tyr the Martyr

Before the age of Multicultural Fascism and one-way political correctness I would have just enjoyed the humour, but now I think Would I be able to do that about ‘black’ music? Moreover, would a ‘white person’ be able to do a travel show like that (irreverent politically incorrect living in the utmost luxury) in ‘black countries’?

The foolters will probably respond that I’m jealous, but if I was doing it, I’d probably be depicted as a racist capitalist! While some of my PhD student colleagues, some with typical counterculture identities/images of being anti-capitalist (anti-Jewish) were going around the world doing conferences, even to Hawaii, I didn’t leave Britain; and have continued travelling on a shoestring and as ethically as possible during my freelance writing.

I have been living a martyrish life, while ‘cool counterculture’ people like Russell Brand and Jeremy Corbyn live in luxury, but are depicted as the new Jesus Christ figures, as those close to Bobby Sands said they formed his image during his hunger strike, copying Che Guevara, in the recent BBC documentary.

Age of ABBBA Loving Comedy

To finish celebrating Sweden’s success, here’s the XaW Files storyline that led to the last age of greenYgrey being ABBBA. Unlike Ayoade, it doesn’t contain any political incorrectness, just loving appreciation.

Bo is Beowulf, legendary dark ages hero, whose story is considered a classic work of Anglo-Saxon literature.

Chapter 8 Episode 14 (End)

I saw what Bo meant as we neared Gothenburg, time-travelling through the centuries from the beautiful wild nature when his book originated, to docking in the bright modern harbour of the twenty-first century city.

Through the centuries we passed through much sickness and warfare, but there was also laughter and play. The social and travel facilities of today were not present in the old days, but the people seemed happy enough as they were; those who were generally healthy anyway. It seems as if more experience and choice brings an ever greater need for more experiences and choices. The beauty of nature is still preserved in the city today, and more so in Gothenburg than most, but the modern metropolis has undoubtedly caused some environmental damage.

‘Welcome to Gothenburg,’ said Bo. ‘I hope you enjoyed the voyage, and like my land. However, my golden age is long gone. I followed the Ash people, and after me there was the age of Britt Ekland. Now it is the age of Agnetha Fältskog. Remembering how you remembered American states by acronyms, I remember the four ages as ABBA.’

Are Your Friend Filters Full? Or do you think they’re ‘Foolters’, Clogging Your System!

When you’re young you put up with some rubbish ‘friends’ because you want to have company, someone to go out with, and to go to good places and parties etc, to not seem a friendless loner; as they get persecuted of course, as Chris Packham described he was in his Asperger’s documentary.

Friend groups can be great, but usually decline in importance as you get older, as most of the hippy communes soon fell apart in the 1960s, as described by Adam Curtis in one of his liberal left-wing orientated documentaries.

In Defence of the Department of Youth (Motley Crue Memories of My Youth)

As I described in my recent article about the Scottish Highlands on TravelThruHistory, I now liked the way all the people on the holiday, who were oldish, kept to their set places on the bus and dinner tables. I don’t think this is a sign of being better, just the way it is, because of age: both the physical and mental properties of humans; body, mind and spirit.

Young people are full of energy, and everything is new to them, so they are both driven by their physical properties and desire to learn about life to move about a lot; in social conditions this means they naturally feel like moving about and interacting with others, whereas older people don’t have that energy drive, or interest in others, as they’ve been there and done that.

The above is an attempt to provide a philosophical insight into why there is often generational conflict, in line with my position as a PhD graduate, and as a peer of Adam Curtis. I propose that the reason is not more physical or mental, but a combination of both. Recent science has also shown that younger people naturally like to sleep later, which has over the years been interpreted as laziness or rebellion; hopefully, such new knowledge will help humanity understand each other, across generations and other social demographics.

I’ve tried to have such conversations with some of my friend groups over the years, but they usually lower it to sex and race, which is why I had to free myself from them, and am eager to escape to my peer group now. However, hopefully you’ll be able to understand this, and interpret it correctly.

Stormy Seas – Clouds of Culture – Friend Foolters

Over the last few weeks I’ve proposed that the masses are kept ‘below the surface’ of knowledge by continuous waves of mass immigration, and the clouds of culture they bring, with the countries that are affected, such as Blighty, continually having to have the same social debates and arguments; such as race, gender and sexuality; as new cultures arrive from the ‘developing world’.

One of the reasons I gave up my friends was that I was bored with their conversations, and thought I could learn more and be more entertained from documentaries on television. If you have friends groups who you really relate to, and that are very knowledgeable and funny, you may find them more stimulating than television, and first-hand spontaneous comedy built on years of ‘local cultural knowledge’ can be better than planned, as seen on television, but overall, the most talented people can usually be seen on television.

Documentary ‘Gas Giant Gravity’ 3G Entertaining Knowledge

While I’m often critical of the ‘establishment’ and the ‘BBC‘ I am probably a product of both more than anything, as I declared recently in my gas giant gravity (3G) theory, and watching Blue Planet II and Sky at Night recently I feel like they are providing the most up to date confirmed information or scientific theories information available.

On a more sensational level, Quest’s ‘The Unexplained Files’ and ‘UFOs: The Lost Evidence’ provide the latest unconfirmed theories and evidence.

If ‘immigrants’ are watching such programmes with open minds, and learning the latest science, then it would make mass immigration look better. However, many/most seem more interested in hiding away from it, maintaining their Middle-Eastern monotheistic myths, to keep their families and communities under their manly monopoly.

If you filter that as my gender and race prejudice, then you are just like one of the foolters I cleaned out of my system, like fat from a clogged artery, to help you breathe better. Some of those foolters were university graduates, but weren’t humanities or social science students, but thought they knew everything about it.

I think I’ve learnt the latest knowledge about the above science subjects from the documentaries, but know I’m no expert in any of them; but also think that makes me quite wise, remembering that 2500 years ago in ancient Greece, Socrates said that the wisest were those who know they know little.

Remembrance Poetry Top of the POPs

While POP has become more known as the twilight colours acronym for PinkyOrangePurple in my writing, it was also the subject of my favourite war remembrance poem of mine, where I wrote a poem around the nursery rhyme Pop Goes The Weasel, posted on fmpoetry in 2010. Here it is again for 2017’s Remembrance Sunday:

Marc Latham’s Armistice Day poem started off as a normal Folding Mirror poem, but then when he wrote peep goes the whistle in the middle it reminded him of the nursery rhyme pop goes the weasel.

After looking the nursery rhyme up he thought he would include parts of the rhyme (in black) to contrast fun peace time elements, like memories of civilian life, to the main horrors of war, in the present, poem (in red).

The Whistle Cried Heavy

Half a pound of tuppenny rice,
Half a pound of treacle.
That’s the way the money goes,
Pop goes the weasel.

waiting in the purgatory
of trench hospitality
dead dreams of peace
vermin, mud and disease
a date with destiny
is awaiting me

peep goes the whistle
Up and down the City road,
In and out the Eagle,
That’s the way the money goes,
Pop goes the weasel.
my comrades carry me

over the top
amongst the deadly crop
bullets, wire and metal
please god cry heckle
an enemy’s greeting
our hell’s garden meeting

All around the cobblers bench
the monkey chased the people;
The donkey thought ’twas all in fun,
pop goes the weasel.

Pop Goes the Weasel explanation and nursery rhyme.

For British soldiers, allies and the victims of war;
and in the not optimistic hope that one day soon there will be an end to war.

Australian Children and Wildlife Surviving Monotheism

In the last blog post I mentioned the book and movie Oranges and Sunshine, which told the story of the Home Children sent from Britain to elsewhere in the Commonwealth, where many had to endure tough slave labour work, as well as abuse. The same kind of poor white children and sexual abuse suffered in Britain from a new wave of monotheism in the last thirty years… as well as elsewhere in Europe.

Another PhD For Me?

I write this because I think it’s relevant, and I couldn’t in university, where important topics like this were considered politically incorrect, and irrelevant topics such as what colour a kiwi is are encouraged, as argued by a recent subject of New Lives in the Wild.

Ironically, with a little self-parody, whether a kiwi is green or yellow is relevant to the greenYgrey world colours, with only grey left out. My sunrise/sunset research declaring the colours predominantly PinkyOrangePurple (POP) rather than red could be another PhD for me, although I’ve probably only done test research so far, and would need to do much more sampling to confirm it.

Monotheism Can Be Interpreted as Nature Destroyer

Often it was at the hands of monotheistic religious institutions such as convents. Animals also suffered much more than under the indigenous pagans, who respected the Earth and animals more, as Native Americans, Native Africans, Native British and Native Europeans did. Some animals went extinct, such as the Tasmanian Tiger.

I don’t know the situation now, and hope the abuse has ended, as the Homes Children project has, and Australia is protecting its wildlife, although I did see a documentary that said many species were losing their habitat due to expanding human communities. It is still a beautiful country though, with lots of wildlife and nature to see.

Australia Wildlife Photos

I had a nice year in Australia in 1989, altogether, but there were some tough times, such as not finding much work in my first few months in Sydney, and malaria (vivax) emerging after I’d stopped taking the tablets after leaving Asia.

I saw some wildlife, including kangaroos and a dingo while passing in a car out in the bush, but didn’t get photos of them. I went to a wildlife centre in Sydney to see others I didn’t see in the wild, such as koalas:

k2koala

and wombat:

I also did a dive course on the Barrier Reef in Queensland after finishing work in Sydney, and travelling up with a couple of car loads of friends, most of whom did the dive course.

I was reminded of Australia recently when I saw Ray Mears was visiting Nitmiluk, which was somewhere Grey visited on its epic solo fantasy fiction trek by Google Maps told in Werewolf of Oz, and other episodes also followed Grey’s trek, such as Kakadu and Kangaroo Island.

The classic Werewolf of Oz episode featuring Nitmiluk and Kakadu, as well as Humpty Doo, is still available on the greenygrey3.wordpress.com site. It of course stars a creature combining Humpty Dumpty and Scooby Doo:

Media Makes My Gas Giant Gravity: Lee Kendall Scandalous Accusation

While human social interaction can provide some ‘gravity’ to propel me forward, as I posted in my new space-social metaphor theory a few posts ago, the media is a gas giant like Jupiter or Saturn compared to the human Venus or Mars. Most of the ‘gravity’ in the media is provided by humans of course, and is always made by them.

Documentaries and Films… and News etc

While I used to watch a lot of drama, such as soaps and series, the last few years I’ve been mostly limiting myself to documentaries and films, as well as news and sport, and the odd comedy, such as Have I Got News For You and Man Down (critical greenYgreyologists might think it’s because I relate to it, and I do in some ways, but mostly I like it because it’s funny, and a good example of my demographic laughing at itself).

A recent Ben Fogle’s New Lives in the Wild featured an Iranian-heritage PhD graduate who’d left academia to live off the grid. His criticisms of the life (rivalry, competition, irrelevance etc), were kind of how I felt twelve years ago when I left, only rather than escaping to the forest, I set up the Greenygrey world online, and enjoyed the outdoors running and hiking.

Some people (anti-greenYgreyliens etc) continued to harass and persecute me if they saw me on my limited reluctant ventures into ‘civilisation’, and especially student or ‘counterculture graduates’ lands; or even in work by a manager from that locality, who thought her social group had forced me out of university, and was trying to do the same in work. I’ve heard some openly say they were trying to drive me out of the city I live in – as if I’m a dinosaur relic of Old Britain in the way of the new promised land of Multiculturalia.

They act as if they are the revolutionaries; like Russell Brand, who still enjoys media love despite supposedly trying to oust them; when it seems to have been a government policy since the 1950s, when white children were being sent abroad to be abused elsewhere in the Commonwealth, with promises of Oranges and Sunshine, the title of a book and film about how it was finally exposed by a social worker decades later, while non-white people from the Commonwealth were being enticed to Blighty with promises of a better life.

Watch What You Say and How You Say It

Another manager used to slag everybody else off, both in work and on social media, but when I asked him something in ‘his traditional accent’ he seemed to take offence, inspired by a sitcom where his ‘people’ showed their great side by laughing at themselves, like Man Down does for me and mine, and he openly boasted of ‘getting other people’ who got in his way… as well as acting like Weinstein with women.

However, although I’ve been a socialist-inspired fair-treatment student and employee, and welcome a move towards a better and fairer university and work environment, I think the political correctness can go too far. I don’t know the whole story of the England women’s team farce, with successful coach Mark Sampson having had to leave, and Lee Kendall having been accused of ‘talking in a Caribbean accent’ by Eni Aluko.

I was reminded of that watching Bear Grylls with Rob Brydon in the second episode of his new Mission series. Grylls said he’d noticed he’d started talking with a Welsh accent, and Brydon didn’t take offence. Brydon is of course an impersonator himself, most famously for doing Ronnie Corbett, who he said loved his impersonations and comedy (including about his size) about him.

I might also add that I’d also enjoyed the first episode, with Anthony Joshua. In the past I’ve exaggerated how much I like Joshua, calling him a fine figure, and a nice man; to parody how society seems to be, and bring out the prejudice in those who think they’re not; but he did come across as a very nice man, and good role model.

Derren Brown Fans, This May Be 2 Much Information: Prepare your Conscious Minds for Amazing Unconscious Revelations… and Sunrise Research!

Spelling it out clearly for you, in case you think I’m causing trouble for negative reasons: I want humanity to see beyond cultures that promote unnecessary cruelty, whether against other humans or animals; and unnecessarily close minds and experience.

greenYgreyliens in the northern hemisphere who suffer from SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder), and lamenting the end of hot sunny days, will no doubt be looking forward to the greenYgrey world MIST months start on November 21st. Only the greatest greenYgreylien greenYgreyologists will remember what the MIST acronym stands for; and they will be better greenYgreylien greenYgreyologists than me, as I first of all remembered it as Most Ideal Sunrise Time, when the M in fact stands for Midwinter in my proposal posted on the greenYgrey3 website on Valentine’s Day this year.

Kazuo Ishiguro’s Clouds and Mist Delayed Reaction

After writing that I consider monotheism to be clouds of culture over the last couple of blogs, obscuring the clear sky reality of more ancient holistic knowledge, last night I connected it with this year’s Nobel prize-winning Kazuo Ishiguro’s The Buried Giant, which I’ve been reading lately. That takes place in a dark ages Britain cloaked in a mysterious fog that the protagonists think has made them lose their memory.

Like with Patti Smith’s M Nights, I didn’t think it was as good as my XaW Files (sorry Patti and Kazuo), but I am biased! As the expert reviewers opine, and I realise now after my delayed reaction, it does have a haunting narrative that sticks to you after finishing it.

Connecting Stormy Seas and Monotheistic Clouds

I also connected my British negative immigration policy Stormy Seas (rather than the Calm Reservoir I think we need) with the Monotheistic Clouds keeping the masses from seeing what’s really going on.

The Stormy Seas mean the masses always stay under the surface, gasping for air, and not having enough time to see what’s going on above the waves – and when they do, they only see Monotheistic Clouds rather than clear sky.

I thought it was quite nicely summed up by this photo, a National Geographic Wildlife Photos competition candidate, seen on MSN News, that I first of all thought of posting as an example of a POP (PinkyOrangePurple) sky, but then thought it was quite representative of how I see the masses’ situation in Blighty and the world – struggling for survival under the surface, with clouds of censorship (especially monotheism, but also other religions, or people cults in communism etc) above.

POP Research

Talking of POP skies, I saw this MSN News story about sunrises last night. It has twelve slides of sunrise photos, and I can only see one that has what I’d call red in it, and that’s a thin line amongst the pinky orange above the purplish cloud in slide 3:

Maybe the reason I can’t remember seeing red in the sunrise is because I’ve mostly only been studying them for the last decade, and in the city, as explained under slide 11: ‘Dust and pollutants found within the atmosphere’s boundary layer absorb and filter visible wavelengths of light. So, the vibrant oranges and reds of “clean” sunrises become diluted to pale yellows and baby pinks.’

I prefer pink to red anyway! However, I still think red is rare in sunrises, as shown in this spectacular twilight time photo from somewhere, featured on the greenYgrey3 website nearly a year ago, which might look red to inexperienced twilight colours researchers on first look, but when you look closely, it is most definitely POP (PinkyOrangePurple). It is just a screenshot image now rather than the video:

These are the photos I based my research on, showing the beauty of Leeds, West Yorkshire, England, Blighty, preserved online in Google Photos and YouTube videos. Thanks to the local people for their tolerance. These are playable videos:
