Where are we now?

Hmmmmmm ……..

Ok ….let’s not forget that the outcome of the ‘Brexit’ vote here in the Uk AND the election of …..of ……I can’t even say it I’m sorry:D:D:D …..

ANYWAY yes the election of the new president of the USA …..in both cases it was by a WHISKER ….but a whisker none the less ….so there’s no point shouting Boooooo now …..ok protest ….at least make it known it’s a whisker ….BUT what’s it all about?

Now …..when I started ‘Blog On!!!’ I think I said ‘The’ world …’My’ world didn’t make sense anymore:D:D:D …..Ok ….Ok ….Hmmmmmm yes well:D:D:D …..and try as I might I don’t seem to be able to keep my fingers to myself and STOP this bloody blog….shut the fuck up ….as I’m not sure if it’s healthy for me and I don’t know why I’m doing it:D:D:D

🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔

CONFUSION!!!

Yep CONFUSION ….a cynicism ….mistrust ….think of a species that banged it’s head …said ‘Ouch THAT hurt’ ….but rather than change tac just keeps banging and banging it’s head because there doesn’t seem to be a different way of doing things …there IS but it takes GUTS ….it takes GUTS and a will to see beyond the ‘self’ and accept it involves a HUGE shift in thinking ….maybe it’s ‘conciousness’ ….or maybe we work better when we are UNconcious:D:D:D

It’s about ‘communication’ isn’t it?

And I don’t mean our social media profiles going BLAAAAAAAH!!!

There ARE …IS ….some amazing stuff going on out there ….little pockets …..but you’ve got to get beneath the layers of BLAAAAAH!!!

Like it or not …..aware or not …..we are ALL going thro a significant period of change ….the fearmongerers are still holding on tho ….BY A WHISKER!!!!

We don’t seem to know what’s real and not anymore do we?….well yes I can agree things are often a matter of ‘perspective’ …..but did  Trump the chameleon merely expose a ‘truth’…there ARE similarities to Nigel Farrages ‘Brexit’ campaign  ……Maybe Corbyn too although COMPLETELY different motivations ….ALL caught on a wave of hunger for change …

And talking of ‘change’  did you SEE the President of the US’s acceptance speech??? ..the TOTAL  persona change on winning the election was INCREDIBLE!!! …talk about ‘Reality T.V show’ ……a VERY cynical game played ON the people …..and it all seems to have confused EVERYONE ….world leaders congratulating as per ‘etiquette’….are they INSANE???…what would YOU do if someone holding such views became your child’s new  headteacher???
And poor Obama …..he’s had to spend HOURS handing over to a man who ……who…….

Bloody Hell this is CRAZY!!!:D:D:D

I STILL reckon Obama is one of the good guys …..

A cynical game show …..a world that encourages Psychopathy ……led by a Psychopath who’se not even bothering to hide it!!!hmmmmmm it’s a cold and joyless route to go down tho  ……SURELY folk see that

PSYCHOPATHY …GOOGLE IT!!!

Are we REALLY going to just watch the whisker become the whole damned cat!!!?

……and talking of books

I understand these 2 have done a collaboration ….hot off the press ….well last month …it’s called ‘The Book of Joy’….and my god do we need some of that in the world right now

Yep …some folks think they’re a little bonkers …but JUST look at them:D:D:D   They’ve been around a LONG time these 2 …throughout ALLSORTS of troubles and been very influential in their own quiet way … you HAVE to admit just by looking at them that they must be onto something …..look at the folk in the background:D:D:D …..it’s certainly a book I’m adding to my  own collection ….you can get it via AMAZON ….one of the wonders of the Internet:):):):):):)

The Power of Pooh 6

Now I first did this little series …..hmmmmm let me see ….it must be going on 2 years ago now

ANYWAY it seems I was not alone …..others were thinking along similar lines ..because although many folk may think I am stark raving mad I am in fact ahead of the pack:D:D:D …or at least alongside current thinking …and I can PROVE it!!!

In the summer of 2015 there was the grand opening of a rather slick and stylish institution …yes …in the country of Italy …world renown for style and sophistication ….there opened

Ta DaaaaAH!!!!

THE SHIT MUSEUM!!! …..dedicated to all things SHIT:D:D:D…demonstrating the versatility and aesthetic of this freely available and Eco friendly substance:):):):)

And THIS summer …the summer of 2016 ….a similar little venue opened on the Isle of White ….it’s catching on folks THE POWER OF POOH IS CATCHING ON!!! ……hmmmm well …I’m not sure the Isle of White is getting the aesthetics quite like Italy :D:D:D …BUT none the less they are recognising pooh as a substance to acknowledge and honor ….

As is the museum of Tokyo who take a different approach again …here you can actually experience what it like to BE a turd …a fun approach where you don a natty little hat and get flushed down the loo:D:D:D

ANYWAY ….it’s ALL good:):):)

Last couple of instalments to follow at the weekend … bet you can’t WAIT:)

The Power of Pooh 5

Fashion and beauty products ……yes indeed ….strut that stuff ….all the below have utilised pooh in their production ….with today’s technology it doesn’t have to be all sackcloth and ashes to live a sustainable and sustaining lifestyle ….we’re ALL a little vain aren’t we? ….it shouldn’t cost a fortune tho either ….that would just be RIDICULOUS ….this idea that the more you pay for something the better it is needs to be turned on its head ….we’re talking shit here afterall:D:D:D

Phew!!!…..I’m trying to crack on with this little series …one more for tonight then a little break:)

The Power of Pooh 4

Convinced yet?

Hmmmmm ok ……so let me explain further the versatility of this stuff ….you can build a home with it ….fuel it …that’s get the fuel you need to cook, heat and run your gadgets from ….and yes it can be used to make home furnishings too…well we all know about the treatment of leather ….yes you do ….vats of manure used to be used in the treatment and dying of hides to make into leather ….and yes …yes I know …perhaps the use of leather is not very ethical but STILL….

……and where do you think the word ‘Tan’ comes from? …correct! …..the guys that worked in the Tannery ….messing about with big vats of fluid and hide, used to end up with pigment stained arms ….yes ….they had ‘tanned’ arms!!!

Hmmm OK …..so it might have looked a bit odd but I’m sure it was fine if they kept covered up elsewhere and just wore short sleeves …..and ANYWAY pooh has such amazing textures and can be fashioned into allsorts ….I wouldn’t be suprised if one could produce a biodegradable faux leather from it ……someone, somewhere probably already HAS:)

But for now ….in terms of home furnishings how about this little lot ? …….yep ….ALL use pooh in the manufacture ….incredible I’m sure you’ll agree!:D:D:D


You can even have a crapper made of crap to crap in ….the whole thing gone full circle so to speak:D:D:D

Anumber of artists like to get all creative with it too ….mixed to the right consistency pooh makes a fabulous sculpting material …

Paper too ….

….or by adding pigments you can actually paint with the stuff ….take a look at THIS lot

 

….well I don’t know about you, but I’d be happy to have ANY of the items featured above in MY home:):):):) ……in actual fact when I have finished defacing my current gorgeous but slightly arsey notebook I think I will put my money where my mouth is and use pooh pads from here on in :):):):)

Oh ..and better add a disclaimer that all images for this little series are from ‘google images’ so it just goes to show that there is already an appreciation of all things pooh going on …it just needs to spread if you know what I mean:D:D:D

The Power of Pooh 3

So …let’s get back to Blog On’s crap little series shall we? ….where was I? ….Oh yes ….so …we’ve got the fuel and the food sorted …hmmmmm what next can we have in this crap filled world? ……Oooh I know …….we need somewhere to live don’t we? …..I mean for goodness sake we are NOT Neanderthal ….we need buildings ….Maslow’s Hierarchy of Human Need and all that ….we haven’t’ even got the basics sorted yet …we need some sort of shelter ….yes I think we’d better have a quick look at shelter next …hmmmmm how the power of pooh can be utilised in building ….yes, yes a sustaining and sustainable substance indeed:D:D:D

Now we all know about wattle and daub don’t we? …..do we? ….no, no …it is not a firm of solicitors it’s what those cute little thatched cottages everyone thinks are all over England used to be made of …..I might not be 100% correct here, but my understanding is that it’s a mix of pooh, clay or mud and straw ….even if I’m not right, I’m sure you can see where I am heading here ….you know …build a timber frame or something …a woven base for the stuff to cling to ….get a load of crap …animal dung preferably ….mix with clay or mud ….a little water to make a thick plaster and slap it on ….inside and out ….it would be great fun wouldn’t it? ….just imagine sticking your hands in a vat of the stuff ….slapping it on and smoothing it over…..it would be kind of therapeutic wouldn’t it:D:D:D ….let each layer dry, finishing with a few layers of finer stuff …then decorate to your own taste …hmmmm what with? …..would lime wash do it? …..is that weatherproof and breathable? ….don’t know but we’re just focussing on the use of pooh for now …the proofing can be looked into later :D:D:D

ANYWAY ….yes this method of building ….or a slight variant has been used for centuries allover the world

Ok ….Ok ….so you might not want to live quite as basic a lifestyle as that …some still do tho …and the buildings are LOVELY to look at you must admit ….they LOOK ‘organic’ don’t they? ..something of the soul about them …beautiful:):):):)

However, don’t panic if it’s all too much to digest:D:D. ….pooh can also be formed into bricks ….or a chipboard type material for more common style building  ….and I’m led to believe it’s a GREAT insulation material ….hmmmmm maybe a bit of mixing and matching could go on when planning and erecting buildings for the 21st century

What do you reckon?
