Glastonbury Fashion Satirical Comedy Review

While Glastonbury used to be the height of downdressing hippies, it is now a hip attraction for the top stars of music and fashion… and greenYgreying. So it was of course the place to be on the weekend for a satirical comedy report from the greenYgrey’s fashionista suprema.

Glastonbury Fashion Highlights

Unfortunately, Stella Lagerwolf-Bruno, fashionista suprema at the greenYgrey, is still over in Brazil reporting from World Cup 2014. So they sent ol’ Paco Wolfsang, satirical comedy fashionista apprentica at the greenYgrey inspired by Paco Rabanne, down to the Glastonbury mud.

I didn’t fancy that, so I just went over to the msn website to get you some photos.

Celebrities at Glastonbury

It’s a shame Stella L-B wasn’t in the country, and the Somerset countryside to be precise, because she could finally have met her main inspiration, Stella McCartney.

Stella McC was in great greenYgreying form at Glastonbury. A grey handbag and green wellies combine well with background sunshine (or cup for a team greenYgrey) for a great greenYgrey combo:

Prince Harry‘s onyoffy gf Cressida Bonas also used sunshine and a drink accessory to provide the Yellow with a green and grey bag on her grey hoody shoulder… looking every bit a greenYgrey princess:

Rita Ora preferred to put the greenYgrey above and behind her; combining hair, fence and vegetation; while wearing something brighter:

Laura Whitmore combined multiple amounts of foreground and background greenYgrey in this perfectypose:

greenYgreying is of course also a team fashion temptation, and these two women, a tree and a tent provided a great greenYgrey three… or four:

Brazil and Columbia Win Satirical Comedy World Cup Report

Brazil won a nail-biting paw-crossing penalty shootout against Chile yesterday, and Julio Cesar, the main greenYgrey goalie of the World Cup, was the top hero. Later, Columbia beat Uruguay with another greenYgrey goalie, David Ospina, making a couple of cracking crucial saves to keep a clean-sheet and help Columbia through to a quarter-final meeting with Brazil on Friday night.

Brazil World Cup 2014 Comedy Satire

Yes folks, it’s got to the stage now where only one of two great greenYgrey goalies can continue on the dust sandy path to World Cup glory, as they meet on Friday night in the quarter-final… unless Columbia choose a change goalie kit, as Brazil’s are both greenYgrey.

Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams, with a satirical comedy football report from Brazil’s World Cup 2014.

Brazil v Chile

Julio Cesar, who has lit up the World Cup making super saves while wearing one of two  great greenYgrey goalie shirts,  made a thrilling reflex save in the second half to help Brazil to a 1-1 draw, before saving the first two penalties in the penalty shoot-out.

Then his goalkeeping skills and great greenYgrey goalie kit (the grey dominant one, although they are both wonderful) might have made Jara aim for the very corner, and he hit the post to give Brazil a 3-2 penalty shoot-out victory.

Here’s some images of Cesar in action; the greenYgrey kit and bib celebrations afterwards; and last but certainly not least, a Brazil fan getting in on the greenYgreying with a World Cup winning trophy holding anthropomorphic costume hugging gYgboo:

Columbia v Uruguay

Julio Cesar will have to be on his best form on Friday, as Columbia have been one of the best teams in the World Cup so far.

James Rodriguez starred in their 2-0 win over Uruguay last night, with his first of two goals especially good; but at the other end David Ospina made a crucial couple of saves to deny Uruguay a way back into the game in the last quarter.

After Columbia’s reserve goalie Mondragon made greenYgrey gYgboo history in their last group match, here’s Ospina making the first of his super saves:

Let the greatest greenYgrey goalie kit win on Friday…

New Mirrror Poem while Blondie Rocked Glastonbury

With a couple of hours of battery life, and feeling that he hadn’t created enough for a World Cup Rest Day, and with four days of World Cup double games days on the horizon, Marc Latham clunked out yet another Folding Mirror poem last night.

Hi, it’s Howlin’ Werewolf, satirical comedy music correspondent at the greenYgrey inspired by legendary Blues singer Howlin’ Wolf.

Marc wrote his poem while watching Blondie at Glastonbury on television, and thought they played a great set. I watched it too, and in addition to the classic old songs, I really liked the uplifting Mile High and the heavy metallish guitar and drum solos.

Here’s Blondie’s Mile High played with greenYgrey backing at Miami earlier this year:

The greenYgrey justified its Glastonbury poster headlining status with a dramatic greatest hits set: producing thunder and lightning storms during the day, rainbows, and then a spectacular sunset in the evening.

Musical bands come and go, but the weather sings forever.

Mirror Poem Explanation

However, Marc Latham’s new mirror poem kind of takes the opposite view, in a greenYgrey kind of way, extolling the virtues of thought in creatures great and small; and how one thought by a small animal such as a mouse is better in that way than all the gigantic unthinking reactions in space.

Family business

In a greenYgrey way, human thoughts are the best and worse we know, but animals have a lot of nice and nasty ones too; with the former shown by their caring for each other.

Marc wrote on fmpoetry.wordpress.com that ‘the title and last line refers to a single thought of a small creature being superior in that way to great giant stars, which just work unthinkingly by thermonuclear reactions. The last line also plays on the British television series about a vet, All Creatures Great and Small. So although the universe is mindbogglingly massive, life as we know it on Earth is the best we know for thinking.’

Here’s the poem:

Damselfly

Particular Preciousness of Thinking, Thought Superior to Reaction

crunch time for mortal minds
strangles infinite breath
day drags for damselfly
century crows to humanity
instinct, learning, loving, expiring
endless summer days

One’s outlook on life, age of calendar July

winter limits light
experience, remembering, warming, gripping
holding on for dear
life becomes more refined
sailing history’s horizon
all creatures greater than sun

We are family

Glastonbury Begins World Cup Rest Day Reflections

life seems without meaning
until you see death
providing a finishing line
and then the game begins
you choose your best side
trying to stay alive instead of die.

Hi, it’s William Wolfsworth, satirical comedy poetry correspondent at the greenYgrey inspired by legendary Romantic poet William Wordsworth. I hope you don’t mind a morsel of middle-age maudling in the above introduction.

There’s double news today, to match the double reflection that reflected The Futility of Life and Death in 242 Mirror Poems and Reflections. Futility of Life and Death was published on fmpoetry.wordpress.com in April, 2011.

greenYgrey Headlines Glastonbury Reflection 1 Screenshot (18)

It’s great that greenYgrey is headlining the poster of Glastonbury, England’s premier music festival, line-up bill this year, supported by the likes of Blondie, Metallica, Kasabian and Fatboy Slim.

The first part of Reflection 18, which mirrors my introduction more than Glastonbury’s fun vibe, although Lana Del Ray is playing there and has said similar recently, was: ‘I’ve fantasised about creating life, but dreamt about ending my own more. Suicide was my parachute, knowing it was there helped keep my plane on course when it was in trouble.’

South American Football Good News Story

After the Luis Suarez biting incident it could be easy to forget what a good world cup Brazil has provided so far, and the positives of South American football. Neymar and Messi have delivered for Brazil and Argentina, but the best South American football has probably been played by Columbia and Chile. Colombia keeper Faryd Mondragon came on to become the oldest player at a World Cup finals

There was a nice touch at the end of Columbia’s third game, when they sent on reserve goalie Mondragon for the last five minutes of the game. At 43 he became the oldest player to play at a World Cup, and also became the oldest player to gYgboo (greenYgrey boomerang) too! Not bad work for 5 minutes of time!!

Reflection 18 (2)

However, the second part of Reflection 18 is more in line with Suarez’s bite! Although it’s more about bipolarity and depression in the mind than actual vampires!!

Vampires are All in the Mind

Molars dig deep
through unconscious neck
into conscious brain
draining lifeblood from mood.

Hourglass inverted
serotonin drains away
you join the living dead
for another day.

Fantasy Travel Satirical Comedy as Anton Chekhov Statue in Tomsk Stars in gYg 3

After two failed lift-off attempts I think we are at last in the right time and place, and with favourable weather conditions, to join greenYgrey on its epic third ramble. Trying to maintain XaW Files blog post standards while creating new innovative material for expectant greenYgreyliens can seem like a trudge through a Siberian steppe in deepest winter. However, it can feel rewarding once the file is complete.

Funnily enough, that’s exactly where the greenYgrey is, travelling across the Siberian steppe. Here’s its latest XaW file:

X Files Chapter 1 Episode 11: Tomsk Talking Chekhov Statue Description Locomotive near Tomsk, Russia.jpg

Fall down upon my sword
looking for another word
to rhyme with ground
exactly the right sound
I’ll use that before I get bored.

Sibiryakov and I travelled on a greenYgrey train to Tomsk. We talked about Burt the Butterfly all the way, remembering his best butterflying and greenYgreying displays, and hoped that it was enjoying its post-Krasnoyarsk life.

Anton Chekhov Statue

We saw a statue that seemed to be greenYgreying on the edge of the Tom River, so I asked it if it was in fact enjoying a spot of the social craze spreading across the human world like a wildfire.

I asked it in Penguinese, as Grey did of course learn that language in Penguin, Tasmania, on its epic Oz ramble, and the Chekhov statue had Penguinese looking feet.

The Chekhov statue raised its umbrella in an expression that seemed to say that it didn’t understand me, so I asked him again, only this time in human.

Stormy Weather!

The Chekhov statue said that it was not a penguin, and not a greenYgreyer… not by choice anyway. It explained that the Tomsk townsfolk had built it after the great Russian writer Anton Chekhov had called the Tomsk townsfolk dull while passing through on his way east to Sakhalin Island.

So his place in front of green and yellow plants was not his choice, and whether he was greenYgreying or some other colour combinating was also not his choice.

His only constant was not colouresque, but being statuesque: ‘man is what he believes… people don’t notice whether it is summer or winter when they are happy.’

He said that Chekhov had obviously enjoyed greenygreying, but he was not Chekhov.

Then he brought his umbrella around and turned it into a gun, saying ‘you should not put this in your story if it is not going to be important to the plot.’

Sibiryakov dived at Chekhov’s statue, and they struggled. Chekhov’s gun went off, and Sibiryakov stopped moving.

I said ‘you killed Sibiryakov’, like the South Park kids used to say ‘you killed Kenny’.

Chekhov’s statue replied ‘don’t tell me the man is dead, show me the drops of blood on my smoking gun.’

Sibiryakov died in Tomsk
in Xaw Files all’s not lost
I’ll remember Alexander
every time I meander
riding the Tomsk CoA gYg horse.

Luis Suarez Biting Theory and Satirical Comedy

While the debate and inquest into the Luis Suarez bite on Giorgio Chiellini in the World Cup 2014 game between Uruguay and Italy dominates the human sporting media we can confirm that Suarez is absolutely not a werewolf.

We can also put forward a theory that Suarez bites instead of punches, and offer possible reasons for his unusual actions.

Luis Suarez not a Werewolf

Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams with a satirical comedy sports round-up virtually from Brazil.

Suarez showed no signs of the stereotypical werewolf change before biting Chiellini, and it was not a full moon last night. He could be a vampire who has learnt to live in daylight as well as dark, although that also looks unlikely, as he didn’t try to drink any blood.

Bad Research

Bad researchers not knowing much about Suarez, and his previous two cases of biting, might put it down to jealousy, with the Uruguayan star player envious of Chiellini’s handsome Romanic looks.

Others might put it down to the heat of the moment, or a provocative act to try and get the opposing player sent off when they react, but his first biting incident for Ajax v P.S.V. was after the final whistle had blown.

With the Ivanovic incident, while playing for Liverpool v Chelsea, Suarez didn’t seem to claim he’d been hit by Ivanovic; maybe he would have done if Ivanovic had swung an arm more.

Suarez did seem to claim being hit by Chiellini when he swung an arm to push Suarez away in yesterday’s game.

Suarez Bites Instead of Punching

Although Suarez has been in lots of trouble on the football field, with three biting incidents and a racism allegation, we can’t remember him having an actual fight; and throwing punches.

We don’t know if Suarez thinks he is more likely to get away with a bite than a punch, or that a bite is more effective, or if he is actually trying to provoke the other player into a reaction, or if he just enjoys biting.

We can say in a good research way, from the evidence we have, that Suarez bites rather than punching.

Suarez is considered one of football’s biggest geniuses using a ball, and maybe it is that part of the brain that allows him to see things other players don’t, that also makes him interact with other players in a way that other players don’t.

No Need for Wizard of Oz Theories for Werewolf

YouTube has many videos offering theories for the real meaning behind the Wizard of Oz, with most considering the book to have been an allegory for the economic situation in the U.S.A. at the start of the twentieth century. This video is an example, and also has some great greenYgrey scenery… at the start, before green takes over!

Werewolf of Oz

Hi, it’s G.G. Howling, satirical comedy fiction writing correspondent inspired by J.K. Rowling.

Luckily for today’s Werewolf of Oz readers, our Grey explained the background to that book. It turned the witches of the Wizard of Oz around to criticise fundamentalist monotheist religion through the monotonous monotheists, while supporting the right to follow monotheistic religions in a personal worth rather than personal gain way through the mildly monotheistic Moby.

It also featured the WWW of the greenYgrey world, with strong independent women; a (were)wolf leading an animal welfare and environmentalism theme, and working class characters rising above discrimination.

It also tried to throw in a lot of comedy, while providing geographic, cultural and historical information about Australia. It is still on sale, and as relevant today as when it was written all those moons ago.
