Lanzarote Photos: Famara Beach and Cliffs

I recently visited Lanzarote, and was of course paid a surprise visit by my beautiful old friend gYgPOP.

I also visited the surfers’ hamlet of Famara Beach, and later the cliffs north of it.

From the cliffs you could see Famara and the islands of Graciosa and Clara.

Graciosa has a small community and tourist facilities, while Clara is a non-human nature reserve for our feathered friends.

Lake Titicaca Photos

After posting some photos from Lake Titicaca a few blogs ago, here’s the rest of them. I was at Lake Titicaca with the same people I did the La Paz El Choro trek.

Jesus’s 666 Connection to the Sun; Christmas Day Wordplay Coincidence Fun

Looking at Jesus’s lexical relationship with the sun from Jesus’s name point of view, rather than from the sun’s; with looking at things differently par for the course in greenYgreyology POPilosophy, inspired by previous books such as Alice in Wonderland, or Jesus himself, or Buddha and Socrates before him; rather than the sun’s, Jesus has two-third’s the sun’s letters, the SU, but not the N, or 0.666666667.

It’s ironic that there should be so many 6s in this equation, with a couple of number of the beasts in there, remembering Iron Maiden, but it should be remembered that Jesus was indeed a very good man, and that the sun is the main provider of life on the planet, so this is just a lexical coincidence, and nothing evil, showing how you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, and how some concepts or forms that have positive or negative connotations in some cultures and thinking can mean totally different things in others.

You can judge Xaw Files: Beyond Humanity by its cover, because it is a star-quality Christ-like sacrifice environmental nature solar-celebrating last of a terrific trilogy innovative comedy wordplay to a new concept of fantasy travelling by Google Maps Eurotrek book:

My Christmas Message for Veggies

Children of the Quorn
I was veggie before it was born
Fans of Linda McCartney
I wasn’t born when she went veggie.

Children of the Quorn
don’t burn down the nut roast oven
Thank those who cook
and ask if they’ve read my book!

Children of the Quorn
remember on Christmas morn
there’s more to life than presents
but it can wait until after breakfast!!

Quorn was born in 1985.
The poem wordplays Stephen King’s book Children of the Corn, made into a couple of movies.

Lake Titicaca Sunset Photos

Especially for those missing the POP (PinkyOrangePurple) times in old-fashioned greenygrey Blighty weather; with the traditional sky evidence that the greenygrey had nothing to do with causing the weather it depicted, as its Yellow rebranding has not created sunnier weather; and also for everybody else, here’s one of my favourite sunset photos from my travels, taken at Lake Titicaca on the Peruvian – Bolivian border in 1994:

Lake Titicaca is arguably the highest navigable lake in the world and biggest in South America. When I was there it looked green in some parts during daylight, due to algae.

The lake looked clear and ‘normal’ in other parts:

Some people (Uros) live on islands made from totora reeds. They also make boats from the reeds (that’s not a reed boat in this photo!):

Chav and Toff the new Chas and Dave

Exciting news, as I’m A Celebrity 2017 winner Georgia ‘Toff’ Toffolo and I have been in the studio with the X-Factor team working on cover versions of Chas and Dave’s classics, cashing in on Christmas, with Ain’t No Pleasing You our first single.

We’re going to be marketed as Chav and Toff, with both names featuring four letters like the Cockney legends. Chav also features the Cha of Chas, while Toff is a champagne Cockney.

In line with the trend of combining celebrity couple names, we’ll be known as Chaff.

No, unfortunately the above is self-parody, but my books are original and real, and contain similar comedy if you liked this Chas and Dave Christmas special! I know chaff is generally a negative word in society, and include it for the above disposable comedy rather than for Toff, who I think is very valuable – as a person rather than financially.

 

Happy Solstice, Nature Beyond

Happy Solstice to everybody, with today marking midwinter, the shortest day, with least light and most darkness, because of the way our planet Earth tilts as it travels around our star, which we call the sun. It’s a cloudy day here, with no sun, which looking on the positive side, shows that nature is above and beyond humanity, doing what it wants when it wants, and that we have to adapt our lives to it, rather than the other way around.

It was mainly a celebration because it marked the winter being half over. In the greenYgrey world it is also known as the MIST (Midwinter/Most Ideal Sunrise Time); nature has had the last laugh today, as it is weatherly misty rather than acronymly MISTy, and looking on the bright side of mist, I chuckle along with it.

Sorry if you made a special effort, and wanted sunshine, which is one reason why I don’t make a big deal about it; because I know by now that nature is a law unto itself. There have been many wonderful sunrises and sunsets this winter, and I’ve enjoyed seeing them, and other people’s photos of them online and on television. They’ve all been POP (PinkyOrangePurple) rather than rare red (now known in the gYgPOP twilight vocabulary as rared – a new self-proclaimed genius wordplay word to mark the occasion!).

Responsible Leader not Mindless Follower

Some double-negatives consider me a follower of others, while others think I’m trying to start a cult; maybe some double-negatives doubly-negatively think I’m both.

In fact I’m neither, or a little of each, but no more than any other blogger, or doctor of philosophy ones anyway! My attitude to solstices and other events such as today is proof of that… to me anyway, as I know how I thought, and what I did.

After visiting Avebury and Stonehenge on the winter solstice in the early years of the Greenygrey I saw the opportunity for creating interest, with lots of crowds, and growing each year.

So I could have become a regular, hoping for ‘celebrity’ status, but haven’t been to one on a notable day such as this since.

I thought that although stone circles and other historic structures are amazing, and worth visiting, they are only humanity’s instruments to measure and worship the real deal: nature and the universe.

I am not The Cult; or referencing them for any Cultists

I re-watched The Sky at Night yesterday, and saw/remembered they’d named the new-found aurora light Steve. It has been found since the greenYgrey joined the PinkyOrangePurple in the sky, so I could claim it as the miracle child of gYgPOP, especially as it’s been announced at this special time of miracle birth.

However, I will leave it to the scientific explanation that it’s been there for a while but has only just been noticed because people are taking more photos.

I will just add that I call it Stevie as well, for all the females out there; especially named after Stevie Nicks of Fleetwood Mac and solo artist fame. Here’s some screenshots from the show of Steve/Stevie, which could be interpreted as gYgPOP miracle birth baby photos:

Result of Jesus Wordplay: Je Suis = 100% Sun = 40%

The BBC (David Icke’s devil-worshipping paedophiles?) announced more religion and a broader scope from now on this morning, which judging from the last twenty years of Multicultural Fascism means much more Islam; it’s a numbers game you see, and now that there are a higher percentage of Muslims after twenty years of pandering to their religion and their high birth rate, despite their prophet marrying a 6-year-old and consummating it when she was 9, the BBC will have the excuse to escalate the Islamisation of dear ol’ Blighty even more.

That’s why I will never like or support Islam. I can tolerate a benign Islam, as religion was all becoming benign in Blighty until Tony Blair stirred things up with his religious focus in the New Labour years.

If we’re going to have more religion on the BBC, which means almost certainly more Islam, I think the ‘prophet’s’ personal life should be included all the time, to give it context, rather than leave it as it usually is now: some kind of benign mystical benevolent new revolutionary charity!

Jesus was a Good Historical Figure and Example

There are a lot of people in my demographic who rebel against Jesus, some even going over to the other side: the counterculture kind of devil worship. I think that’s mostly rebellion against hypocritical institutions; Australia has just reported on years of abuse by the (mostly Catholic) Church, schools and sports teams, and Blighty is supposed to be doing the same, justifying my and others like me’s rebellion in the 1980s, although it just seems to be being replaced by a foreign (Islam) version now for another generation; but there are some who may cross over into the traditional stereotype of older establishment Icke-criticising devil worship (seems to be more of it in ‘heavy metal’ now).

I liked Jesus as a rebellious anti-materialist carer, but don’t think he was as special as Christians make out; I think he was just a special person in his time and place, like many people throughout history, all over the world. If the Romans hadn’t brought Christianity back to Europe then Jesus would probably just have been a local hero. Ironically, the Romans went downhill after adopting Christianity, with their empire ending soon after. The same as Egypt when Islam took over from the original monotheist god: the sun.

Not that I think religion should be judged on military success. Sun worship didn’t save the native Americans when the Europeans arrived.

Title Explained: greenYgrey-style Wordplay

There are some people who still think I’m too chavimbo (chav himbo-bimbo) to be the wordplay genius who wrote Werewolf of Oz and XaW Files in a decade-long greenYgrey concept after becoming a doctor of philosophy, and who ran multiple marathons after travelling around the world on a shoestring.

I would list my many flaws, but think I’ll let the double-negatives do some work for themselves, although I have previously written in the mental health genre; it’s not easy being greenygrey!

I liked the Jesus story (when I watched The Last Temptation of Christ recently I wondered if The Pretty Reckless’s devil-worshipping Taylor Momsen was my last temptation?), and thought recently with my focus on the sky about his time on the cross.

Jesus and the Sun

Who did Jesus apparently talk to in his last time on Earth, nailed to the cross after being taunted and tortured by humanity: the sun in the sky.

Moreover, Jesus shares two of his name letters with the sun: the s and u. The 40% of the title. They are in the right order too, and with room at the end for an N to complete sun, instead of the second s.

That would make the name Jesun, sounding like the French Je suis: I am; I sun. However, Je Suis is also Jesus with an extra I: the anagram I Jesus.

Jesus’s Biblical end, on the cross with the sun, could be interpreted as being represented by the Ancient Egyptian Ankh symbol/hieroglyph, which preceded Christ and Christianity by over a thousand years, as David Icke has pointed out similar on stage, in videos previously posted on this site.

The ankh, during the reign of Hatshepsut (1508–1458 BC), from the Royal Ontario Museum

The symbol was later used by Coptic Christians, who have suffered several attacks by Islamists in Egypt in recent times, in an attempt to wipe them out, although some moderate Muslims have supported them.

This representation reminds me of pre-Abrahamic monotheism’s ancient respect for nature, across a world that was not supposed to be connected, as seen in religious symbols from South America and the Middle-East. There were similar beliefs across the rest of the world, in what is now called Australasia.

New Northern Lights Theory and Lanzarote Green Lake gYgPOP Sighting

The latest Sky at Night featured a possible paradigm shift in aurora theory, with a new theory addressing the question of why aurora (Northern and Southern Lights, Borealis and Australis) are visible on the dark side of our planet (at ‘night’), when the sun’s particles hit Earth’s magnetic field on the light side facing it.

New Aurora Theory

Apparently we still don’t know a lot about it, when I thought we knew everything… or nearly everything anyway!

The new theory is that the sun’s particles travel past the front of our Earth, beyond the poles where the usually appear, but then are returned to the dark side of our Earth by our magnetic field ‘strings’ snapping together, as they cannot cross and through each other, kind of like elastic bands.

The Earth’s magnetic fields apparently trail out from the dark side looking kind of like a squid, as ‘the Sun’s magnetic field compresses the near side of Earth’s magnetic field and stretches the far side.’ (just looked that up on Grant’s Chronicles):

Image result for earth magnetic field images

It’s when those magnetic field ‘strings’ trailing the dark side contract and touch each other that the particles create aurora, like live electrical wires touching together on Earth.

Sky at Night also said new types of colours had been recorded, which kind of looked gYgPOP (greenYgrey PinkyOrangePurple). They said it was found by amateurs, so I wondered if it was any of you great greenYgreyliens?

Lanzarote Green Lagoon gYgPOP Sighting

Funnily enough, a photo I recently took of the Green Lagoon Lake on Lanzarote had a gYgPOP look to it, with green and pink lines visible in the sunlight. I hadn’t noticed them before taking the photo:

The above was the third of three I took of the seaside-edge Green Lagoon Lake (colouring caused by algae). The first two didn’t have the rays:

My decade-long Greenygrey/greenYgrey ended by merging with POP (PinkyOrangePurple) two years ago, inspired by aurora colours:

Manchester City Millionaire

Thanks to Manchester City for promptly paying me the million pounds for winning the war of words with Mourinho before the derby with United last week, meaning they could win the football game as they should have done.

No, unfortunately the above is self-parody comedy, and I’ve got no connection with Manchester City. I didn’t win a war of words with Mourinho as there was none, as there was none between him and Guardiola, as the latter didn’t engage in it, after Mourinho seemed to start it.

I first started my own war of words with Mourinho at the start of last season inspired by other people trying to do the same with me (the Grandmaster ‘battle of wits’ reference that crossed over), to show how ‘one-sided’ battles happen.

If Manchester City had lost the derby, it would have provided ammunition for those who try to engage me in unwanted ‘battles of wit’ as I have done with Mourinho, but City  won the game.

Although I engaged Mourinho in this way mainly to show an example of a ‘one-sided’ battle he does seem to like that kind of management, which is an excuse for me to engage him in such a way.

Maybe that’s what people think about me, and of course they have the right to criticise me in a free democracy. And as Mourinho doesn’t think I’m worthy of responding to, as I’m not in the football profession, I don’t think those who try to engage me in a ‘battle of wits’ are worth bothering with either if they’re not in the professional media world.

As a Communications Studies PhD I probably could have earned a million in PR over the last decade, instead of writing here for you, and trying to achieve a classic work of literature…!
