Baftas 2017 Dominated by gYgPOP

While POP (PinkyOrangePurple) colours are now commonly found in many British television studio-based shows, as highlighted recently on this blog, this blog doesn’t have a television show all of its own. So we weren’t expecting to win an award at last night’s Baftas 2017. However, the awards plinth did seem to have a great greenYgrey design:

Moreover, when searching Sarah Lancashire (sorry Yorkshire!) Baftas awards 2017 for the above photo, the related images have a nice gYgPOP overall design:

Sarah Lancashire won awards for her role in Happy Valley, which reminded me of my campaign against psychopathic groomers in university, work and society; although I was just an independent writer.

I’ve known Sarah Lancashire as an actress since Coronation Street, which I watched regularly when she started in the series in 1991. I didn’t remember her character’s name, Raquel Wolstenhulme, now, just remembering her as established character Curly Watts’s partner.

Maybe that’ll sound ‘sexist’ to those who care more about literary political correctness than street and workplace grooming and exploitation.

Blondie Pop Pops into Modern POP BBC

Later with Jools Holland has received a PinkyOrangePurple (POP) (historian greenYgreyologists please note the first coloured-text POP!) studio redesign, like most of the studio-based BBC programmes I watch, and some from other channels, such as ITV‘s very relevant to this site Harry Hill’s Alien Fun Capsule (Harry Hill inspired our werewolf television correspondent Harry Silhouetteof-Wolfhowlingonhill). Note the presence of an old-skool greenygreyer in the foreground of this photo from a Sun article:


Blondie 39 Years Later

It’s now 39 years since Blondie pop-rocked into my life on the crest of New Wave, so it’s great to see them still playing, and creating new music. Moreover, on their recent studio appearance Miss Harry wore yellow on stage, with their third song a rousing playing of old classic Call Me.

The studio lights were at other times golden yellow, perhaps fittingly for a Blondie interview, which also included other original members Chris Stein and Clem Burke.

Blondie also played nicely impressive new songs Long Time and Fun off the new album Pollinator. This site was one of the first to report news of the new album in blog post, Valentine Love 3, 1/28th of the 28 days of February filled with mixed-up vole (remembering our anagram comedy wordplay)!

As usual, the other musicians on Later with Jools Holland were great, and I was particularly impressed by the performance of Future Islands vocalist and programme cover star, Samuel T. Herring, in their opening song, Cave. That is genuine admiration for an animated and passionate performance (like I remember thinking about Phil Campbell of The Temperance Movement at last year’s Download), and there’s nothing fishy about it… unlike his name (sorry Samuel), which I didn’t know at the time.

Question of Sport Inspires Question of gYgPOP

As I watched Question of Sport last week, and the studio changed from predominantly POP (PinkyOrangePurple) to greenYgrey it inspired me to question myself:

  1. Are the studio designers greenYgreyliens/POPolutionaries?
  2. Are they anti-greenYgreyliens reclaiming greenYgrey and PinkyOrangePurple?
  3. Are they engineers of a coincidence?

Here’s a couple of images of the gYgPOPing:

greenYgrey POP emerged out of Andy Warhol’s pop art, in the best parody comedy travel quest book of the century, hidden from the masses by hunt supporters gatekeepers on the right, and child grooming supporters on the left.

Hopefully you will find a way through the middle, like our Y, and rise up to the challenge:

Wolf and Human Freedom and Captivity Television Channels Memory

While writing about my love for Dave the wolf yesterday, including his name, I forgot to include Dave the television channel, which has some good programmes.

Dave Yesterday Television Channels

Seeing Room 101 there reminded me of Frank Skinner saying on it how telling a good joke is worth more than a fickle friend to him.

The Yesterday channel is another, and has particular relevance to this site, with its greenY Y logo:

Yesterday logo 2012.svg

I watched Blackadder’s Most Cunning Moments last week, and thought the green gold alchemy sketch particularly relevant for this site, as well as having a great greenYgrey set, with the Bunsen burner thingy providing the yellow in a green and grey room (especially visible when Blackadder sits down at about 1.45 minutes):

The Prisoner Television Series and Great Escape Movie

I was also thinking afterwards that maybe Dave the wolf’s situation, when he was trying to escape promptly at 3pm each day, was more like The Prisoner 1960s television series, sung about by Iron Maiden, and referenced in my Werewolf of Oz, with Patrick McGoohan’s Number 6 character trying to escape each episode (I think, not having watched all of them).

Then there was The Great Escape, with Steve McQueen’s character USAAF Captain Virgil Hilts, the “Cooler King”, making neverending escape attempts… by greenYgreying:

Dave Wolf Five

I think Dave and the other wolves looked happy and content in Animal Park, and although it’d probably be ideal for him to be free with a pack of his own, he’s got a pretty good life there in Longleat. Hopefully he will be a good ambassador for his species too.

It’s probably like a human being in a comfortable place, with nice people, but without freedom, more like The Prisoner than Cool Hand Luke or The Great Escape.

Everybody living in human society is restricted in some way the same as Dave, if you abide by any laws or consideration to others. The only way to ‘escape’ some kind of human influence on your life is to escape humanity altogether by going to live in the wilds and being totally self-reliant.

Maybe Dave the wolf could find great stardom outside Animal Park, with the right agent/manager, like Axl and Izzy did escaping Indiana, and Duff Seattle, but there’s a lot of rebels who get eaten up, or fall by the wayside!

… And no hand in destiny
I’ll keep on movin’ along
With no time to plant my feet…
Suddenly this time I found
I’m on the streets and I’m all alone

Love is Dave, Dave is Wolf: Human and Wolf Personalities Similarities

When people say they always remember hearing about some famous people’s deaths, I think John Lennon was my most vivid and memorable. I woke up for a cold school day in my damp council flat bedroom on 8th December, 1980 and the radio was full of the news. I knew a little about Lennon, who hadn’t been that active over the previous decade, but not his full importance and legacy. I was moved in a shiver down the spine, hair standing on end kind of way by the sorrow and brevity in the voices of the announcements and discussion, as if something much bigger had happened, like the end of an era.

Love of Lennon Wolf Wordplay

I liked Lennon’s music, and most of his ideology and life story, but in a greenYgrey way, he apparently wasn’t perfect. I just thought I’d make that clear before the main subject of this blog post, in case anybody thinks I’m making fun of John Lennon, Yoko Ono, love or their love. Their Love song just came to my mind, in an ADHD kind of way, when I was thinking about a wolf called Dave that is a bit of a lovable rogue.

Thinking about comedy wordplay keeping to the letter, Dave is half way to love; the second half v and e to be exact: –ve. Moreover, wolf has the second o, -o–, so between them Dave Wolf has 75% of love.

I like the way Longleat have called him Dave too, a nice ordinary name, reminding me of how festival goers often walk around shouting an ordinary name as if searching for them, for a laugh, which has now become a kind of festival culture tribal call:  ‘Dave’, or ‘Where’s Dave’, or some other common name.

The Love video also contains lots of great greenYgreying, which again is a positive parody bit of fun:

Dave the Rebel Wolf of Animal Park

There are three Arctic Timber wolves in Longleat wildlife park. Two are conformist, while Dave is a bit of a rebel. He was shown timing his ‘escape bids’ every day knowing when visitors would be allowed in, and he could try and slink the other way, while the gates were open. He kind of reminded me of a wolf ‘Cool Hand Luke’.

His escape bids also made me compare Dave’s life to mine, and my desire to get out and see what’s out there; in youth more physically, and now more mentally. I wonder if there are people who are controlling my life and know what’s beyond the dimensions I know, as the Longleat keepers control Dave’s life and know what’s beyond his enclosure.

Park Life Comparison

It also made me wonder about the futility of pushing the boundaries, as Dave does. Beyond the buffer zone that he manages to escape into is the lion enclosure, and Dave’s reward for escaping farther would probably be to be eaten up by the lions.

In the Rory Bremner documentary about ADHD a researcher used an example of how ADHD people can be useful to society, as those who go and test the boundaries, maybe getting eaten by sharks, providing a warning to the rest of the community.

So maybe that’s why I love Dave, because he’s like a wolfie wolf me… in my youth anyway. I’ve been trying to behave in university and work since starting a new adult life in 1995; confining my searching and rebellion to my writing; but some of my ‘controllers’ haven’t loved me, and tried to turn me into a ‘problem’ they can try and look good ‘controlling’. Meanwhile, they were also using me as cover for their ‘rebellion’, or immoral or illicit behaviour at least; or it was just a coincidence!

When you’re young and under control you think the people in control are all conformists, but they are usually rebelling against the system or those above or alongside them too. I don’t mind that, but when they’re using people like me as their cover or reason, then I feel obliged to respond.

Oh, and Dave also loves to greenYgrey! Never mind the Dave Clark Five, here’s the Dave Wolf Three, with the third Dave on an escape bid, reminding me of my hitchhiking days!, seen in episode 3 of the Animal Park Easter special. Dave and the other wolves also appeared in episode 5.

There were five wolves by episode 5 actually, with two Eurasian wolves added, so they are kind of like the Dave Wolf Five now!

Horizon: Rory Bremner Search for ADHD Diagnosis

While I try and care about everybody
I particularly relate to the free
or at least those searching for that feeling
perhaps with screws loose from normal thinking
suffering or blessed with bipolarity and ADHD.

I watched the Horizon documentary featuring comic impersonator Rory Bremner searching for an ADHD diagnosis last night, and related to a lot of it; the risk and stimulant (coffilosophy) taking, and exercise in the countryside were particularly relevant to my life told in the content of this blog over the last decade, while the attention deficit discussion was obvious to the issue.

I self-diagnosed from documentaries such as that about a decade ago, after ‘escaping’ civilisation as best I could to the greenYgrey world! I certainly wasn’t the first, but I was at the forefront of the opening up about mental health issues (one of the reasons why I get pissed off when people claim credit for my writing: stealing the positive part of my difficult mind!).

I didn’t care about what people thought of me until the ‘chav’ era, and finding out people were making me out to be totally stupid all the time, in line with the ‘chav’ image. I didn’t mind acting the fool when having fun, to entertain ‘friends’ and ‘colleagues’, but hoped people realised I could be quite intelligent when needed.

Goldray greenYgrey (well more PinkyOrangePurple, but doesn’t rhyme!)

In music, Goldray caught my attention (and kept it), with their greenYgrey to POP (PinkyOrangePurple) epiphany artwork on Classic Rock complemented by a great sound too!
