Is Amber too American?

Amber Heard couldn’t have been more greenYgrey at the Aquaman London premiere.

The Stella Lagerwolf-Bruno in me thinks she has put this week’s London Fashion show in the shade, winning top outfit of the year before the fashionistas could strut their funky stuff on the catwalk.

Amber American Letterography Study

However, in the wake of the Kate v Meghan controversy, some British greenYgreyliens wonder if Amber is too American for the greenYgrey role… when the greenYgrey trilogy eventually becomes a blockbuster superhero franchise… which must be imminent now!?

While Amber Heard is mostly all American in a good way, she can seem a little over the top in an immature way at times, such as the fake apology with Johnny Depp about taking her dogs into Australia illegally.

I know I have been too immature for my age most of the time, and may be doing so again with this blog post; and especially for my doctor of philosophy title; although I would argue that this is a part of philosophy, and especially when paired with some of my more serious writing and poetry, such as yesterday’s meeting with the sun prose and poetry shared with you for free on fmpoetry.wordpress.com (while admittedly advertising my books).

Blame the Parents

However, greenYgreyology letterography experts; the greenYgreyology version of lexicography; think they have worked out the reason why; Sherlock Holmes style. 

If you study Amber’s name for as long as they do, you will see that it shares the first four letters of Amer-ica(n), with only a b in the middle of Am-b-er dividing them.

Therefore, Amber Heard should not be blamed for being too American, and any fault lies with her parents, or whoever named her.

I hope that clears the way for Amber Heard to carry on greenYgreying (bringing back the Carry On franchise could be another option; that was unplanned unconscious spontaneous prose observation while travelling the writing road self-proclaimed genius!) all the way to the lead role…

P.S. The above contained mostly parody humour based on reality, whereas the last blog post contained mostly reality with a little parody humour.

Meghan Markle: Tim Burton Character

June Sarpong’s discussion point on Sky News’s The Pledge this week was Meghan Markle: claiming the British media are negative towards her, and that it’s mainly because of race. If I criticise either it will be put down to race.

June Sarpong So Wrong

The main thing I don’t like about June Sarpong now is that a couple of weeks ago she laughingly admitted to claiming she was still vegan to get a big money media assignment – admitting fake news lying journalism with no hint of shame.

The second thing is that she always goes on about race; not the colour of her skin for me, although that is her big issue.

Now though, after fighting Multicultural Fascism for twenty years, and the terrorism and grooming that have benefitted from it, and that I’ve seen and experienced in Leeds, I wouldn’t want a relationship with her.

The things I like about her is that she can be moderate, such as admitting the grooming epidemic did have a racial factor, and supporting Joe Root in the cricket homophobia row. Before I saw her on The Pledge I saw her on Investigation X; a series that included investigating UFOs at Area 51, my current main interest at fmpoetry.wordpress.com, that they concluded were human technology; so respect she was been a good investigative journalist in the past.

Meghan Markle: Bad Role Model

Watching the Meghan Markle show as I think she wants to be seen, I think she wants to be seen as a Tim Burton tragic fairytale; that’s what she reminds me of anyway. I just saw that what I must have most been thinking of, The Corpse Bride, has one of its main taglines: ‘Marriage as a vehicle to wealth and a higher social status.’

See the source image

I think Meghan sees herself, and wants to be seen, as the heroine of the film, who from what I remember of it, beats the posh blonde expected bride: Cressida and Chelsy?

I don’t know about Chelsy, but Cressida seems a much better role model for women, putting her career first: before becoming a princess with all that wealth.

Meghan the Merciless

Meghan seems more of an advert for ruthless women; the kind of career women you see on The Apprentice, bitching and backstabbing their fellow contestants (including other women) for a few dollars more.

She also hasn’t criticised Prince Andrew at all, happily sharing a balcony with him above the common people, despite allegations by her fellow American young women – the main one was blonde, so maybe she doesn’t count!?

Didn’t Like Diana: Attempted Murderer?

For those who want to put my criticisms down to race or anti-Americanism, I didn’t like Diana either. I watched a documentary about her step-mother Raine recently, and wasn’t surprised to see Diana’d pushed Raine down a stairs, badly injuring her, after being horrible to her for years; which could be seen as attempted murder!?

Diana was treated badly, and did some good work for charity, as Harry and Meghan do, but it is expected of them, and they are well rewarded for it.

As I’ve said about the Queen, she has been a great one and person, but can never be as good as a poor person leading the same moral and virtuous life, while struggling with financial and social problems too; I’m not one of them!

Kate and Meghan: Angry Birds 

While I prefer Meghan’s animal welfare and environmental concerns, I think Kate seems the nicer person, or maybe it’s just that she seems the more natural and sincere, because she’s being herself, rather than an actress in another country and culture.

When I heard she’d bought a shotgun to shoot birds for the first time recently I thought it was probably to get back at Meghan, or feeling that she was being pressured by her, after reports of them arguing surfaced.

I think that’s the kind of detrimental effect someone being too pushy can have, and why I try to keep my campaigning moderate. There was a pushy American character in a meal-ticket relationship that seemed to parody Meghan in the latest series of Cuckoo on the BBC

When critics apparently say Meghan is no Diana, I think she does have a lot of similarities, but it’s not a compliment!

Princess Kate – no matter how much Meghan annoys you, please give up the bird-killing; it doesn’t become you!

Meal-Ticket to Mars: #hasamberheard?

My plot to reach Mars has thickened, making me feel like one of those evil geniuses everybody seems to want to be these days; often using me as part of their ego/social media-building efforts!

Amber Heard and Elon Musk

When I saw a story about Elon Musk saying how much a ticket to Mars will cost, it inspired me to write ‘If I can get closer to Amber Heard I reckon Elon will give me a free ticket!?’ on Facebook.

Trump Wall could Disrupt Musk’s SpaceX: Ivanka’s Work?

Then yesterday I saw story about the Trump wall possibly going through Musk’s SpaceX station, so I wrote with self-proclaimed genius self-parody: ‘Ivanka must have heard about my plan to use Amber Heard as a meal-ticket to Mars, with Elon bound to give me a free ticket if I can get closer to Amber. Ivanka’s got her dad to scupper my plans, desperate to keep me on this planet, in the hope that one day we’ll be together.’

Sun and I Very Happy

In reality, back in the real world (or should that be solar system), the sun and I are very happy, and had a lovely first Valentine’s Day together as a couple yesterday.

I don’t think I really want to go to Mars anyway, as it’s farther from the one I love: that great big bundle of life-creating fun, the sun.

#hasamberheard? #hopeamberhasn’theard

The reality behind the parody comedy is that some people are behaving like the above, and I’ve been trying to warn against it throughout my writing, from my first memoir and poems, through my fantasy fiction.

I did that after leaving university because they weren’t interested in it, thinking it too politically incorrect and bad for business.

Hundreds or thousands of young people have since been groomed and/or committed suicide; many of them students. Many are now the perpetrators too though.

 

 

 

Travel the Mind, Better to Unwind

I don’t know if it’s a coincidence, but there seems a correlation between what separates our brains (minds) from open air and our planet from space: a protective casing around our brains; the skull; and the atmosphere around our planet. Moreover, neither are fully closed.
Open to the Universe
Furthermore, while they protect us, they also give the impression of separation. Clouds and sunlight in the sky, and clothes and faces on us can increase the divide. Walls and rooves provide another separating layer when indoors.
It’s a well-known maxim of new-age spirituality; inspired by old philosophy I think; that we’re all connected to everything around us, but my thoughts above are new to me as I write.
Travel Pros and Cons
Travel can take you to places where you can feel a good connection; quiet clear sky locations, such as mountains, beaches and deserts.
However, famous locations are often crowded and noisy, so you can often achieve just as much escape and more quiet staying home or local.
Moreover, you don’t cause any environmental or life damage then either. While I admire and often relate to people who start new lives in the wild, they nearly always end up destroying/killing some life.
Angry Transcendence My Beach Boys Love Now
Before writing this blog post I wrote this on the Rose Tattoo Facebook page, introducing my new poem on this site’s sister site, fmpoetry.wordpress.com blog:
Rose Tattoo were one of my biggest inspirations to write poetry, as I declared in my first collection. While it was the angry street songs then, I’m just as interested in Angry’s spirituality now, and attempts at transcendence through music, as he declared in an interview featured in the Easybeats to AC/DC documentary.
Seeing him on stage last year before seeing the documentary, knowing he was into the Bahia faith, I thought he was in a transcendent state, with eyes closed a lot of the time; riding the music during songs, or travelling the past through his mind while talking; like a scarred for life shaman (I quite like that; hope you do too).
I think I have travelled a similar path while writing, but mine is of course simply the writing stage, without the added stimulation of performing a highly successful and appreciated creative catalogue in front of many people. Today, it’s where I’ve been writing this. Yesterday, my stream of consciousness coffilosophy, was this ‘live thought’ on the writing process for my fmpoetry blog.
No Eminem: Slim Shady
While I admire a lot of musicians I don’t have any kind of delusions about them, as depicted by Eminem with Slim Shady.
In fact, I now consider myself too old and rational to rock n’ roll much! After seeing a Beach Boys concert just over a year ago, and looking them up, I related to the warmth of Denis Wilson, the tragic party animal who died young and was the only real beach boy in the group. After reading his nemesis in the group was Mike Love, a much more rational colder man I wanted to side with Denis. I wrote about it on fmpoetry.
However, I now feel more in line with Love, who practises transcendental meditation. I stilly feel empathy and sympathy for Denis Wilson, and admiration for Brian, the genius of the band, but at this moment in time, I am more in mind of Love; mentally that is!
While Mike Love seems quite a cold character, Angry Anderson seems the opposite, but also expressed his desire for transcendence through his music on the Easybeats to AC/DC: The History of Aussie Rock documentary recently shown on the BBC.
I am still greenYgrey enough to think it could all be in my mind, inspired by the one and only Love the mixed-up vole, the anagram that some (neurons in my mind!) consider, stole the XaW Files: Beyond Humanity show!

Australian Open Tennis Highlights

In the glory days of greenYgrey I would have joked without explanation: ‘there was only one winner at the Australian Open… (with I think the expected answer tennis, but my in-joke): gYgPOP (greenYgrey PinkyOrangePurple).

Daring to Wordplay Self-Parody

But these are different times (I think they really are, but dare to still use parody/satire to gYgPOP in-joke): POP ones.

Thanks to the Beeb for their finals highlights, with some great tennis… and these gYgPOP highlights from Melbourne, where Grey of course solo travelled (immortalised in the Werewolf of Oz book) when separated from Greeny, before the Y grew in the middle, the Gs went lower case… and then it all turned POP; perfectly presented in the Melbourne sky during the men’s final (between the Frankenstein and Werewolf of greenYgrey sports, with all respect to them, and thinking neither are as scary as me!).

MIWOST GHOST MIST of mistYmuse

I was excited to see it was a misty sunrise for many in Blighty to see in the first commute (beaut commute) of the middle MIST (Most Ideal Sunrise Times, November 21st to January 21st) week. I could claim it; and the fantastic sunny sunset; was the sun and weather gods rewarding me for my work, but I don’t know if it was.

Winter Solstice New Pagan Festival Acronyms

As the mistYmuse (MUSE stands for Midwinter Until Spring Equinox, January 21st to March 21st, seeing sunny warm weather lovers through to the return of the weather they love) new pagan festival grows, in my mind anyway, and concepts I create, I have some new acronyms to celebrate this biggest week of the four months celebration – please consider them my gifts to you if you are a fan – rather than material goods that can destroy the environment; although I don’t want to appear a grinchYscrooge!

There are so many bad things going on in the UK and world I can’t be bothered being an anti-capitalist this week!

The new acronyms are MIWOST and GHOST, which I think both sound quite paganYxmas in line with the season.

MIWOST stands for Most Ideal Week Of Sunrise Times – which we are in now, only three days from midwinter on Friday December 21st.

GHOST stands for Golden Hour Of Sunrise Times – where the sunrise times are now in Blighty, between 8-9am, ideal for the traditional 9-5 working day start time.

POP Research Also Advancing

As the mistYmuse tradition grows with time, so does POPilosophy. For example, I now wonder how POP (PinkyOrangePurple) twilight time photos are, and in what way, rather than just calling them all POP.

In this great gYgPOP (greenYgrey PinkyOrangePurple) photo I just saw on the Standard website (the first search link with the information I was looking for about this year’s Solstice times) it is a subtle combination POP, with a mostly pinky purple sky, and some orange on one side, and yellow on the other. The grass and stones provide the green and grey.

The new POP art was born on the XaW Files: Beyond Humanity travel quest for the greenYgrey world’s pop artist, Andy Wolfhol, who was inspired by Andy Warhol, and whose favourite catchphrase was wolf not war.

Midwinter Most Ideal Sunrise Times Month

I was thinking of updating the mistYmuse today, as it’s over two weeks in now (started November 21st, a month before midwinter) and there are only two weeks until the Winter Solstice, when it will be midwinter in the northern hemisphere. The MIST of mistYmuse stands for Most Ideal Sunrise Time, and now that we are only a fortnight away from December 21st we are in the best four weeks for seeing the sunrise as late as possible, and it is now in the 8-9am hour in Blighty.

Advent Calendarists joined the December party on the 1st of course, and have to wait another four days for their biggest day on the 25th.

I’ve been seeing in the news that lots of people have thankfully been up popping POP (PinkyOrangePurple) pictures, such as this classic one featured on the BBC:

Inkberrow in Worcestershire

I just wrote a blog post on this site’s sister site, fmpoetry, with an update about the POPolution.

Finland Leaf Heart

I was thinking of my time in Finland recently… three times.

First was when I was writing about photosynthesis, and thought of this photo taken in a Helsinki park:

101_4300

Second was writing about how I’d wanted New Labour to follow the Scandinavian example twenty years ago on the fmpoetry blog.

The third was reading that Finland is the safest country in the world according to the World Economic Forum. Iceland was third and Norway ninth. The UK was down in 78th, even below the USA I think of as a bad example; maybe it’s the other way around?

Sunnymoon is Over, Honeysunny Time in Loch Lomond

The sunnymoon period was over the next day, visiting Loch Lomond, but it was dry, and atmospheric. As in Norway where the narrow fjords with steep mountains are the most spectacular, I think lochs such as nearby Loch Long and Loch Awe are more picturesque in places, but Lomond is nice too, with several islands, and a visible mountain line dividing the Highlands and Lowlands going through it. As the biggest freshwater body in Britain at about twenty-four miles by five, it also has been-there-and-done-that value.

Iceland Travel History Article Published

An article I wrote about my January trip to Iceland has been published on travelthruhistory. In the article I remember my original Beat inspiration, going against the grain by stressing the journey experience, and I think being innovative by including what I’d have liked to have done or seen but missed; partly as consolation to the good people who think I do and have done too much, and have it too easy. Stating I thought I was mostly lucky counters those who think and hope the opposite for me. Here’s some more photos from my time in Reykjavik:
