” Hardcore ” … Prod by Strat Carter (Explicit)

Okay so, back to some music from Virges’ World ….

and somehow, when applying these words to the world at large, as it’s currently running ….

Well, Mr. Trump is …. AS EVER, going on in a Hardcore Manner, in terms of his language, and attacks, on everyone from Steph Curry, to Colin Kaepernick, and those who’ve suddenly realised that maybe just maybe, Colin has a point !

It’s easy to jump on the bandwagon when a man of The Presidents’ ilk, runs some Extraordinarily, INFLAMMATORY Language, and attitudes in the public domain, as North Korea’s leadership would certainly attest to.

As for the weather, well if you haven’t been paying attention, HARDCORE Damage has been wreaked by Hurricane after Hurricane, and yes, the region of the Caribbean is still in the midst of them, so, don’t think that it’s all good as we leave what is deemed as being, the Hurricane Season.

A little more humility and thought, rather than, hardcore reactions …..
might just be the order of the day, for a while, but in the meantime, My Hardcore vibes, with the handy work on production of Mr. Strat Carter, are a little less disturbing, if, none the less worthy of the title …..

Take a listen …….

They are ringing, Quite Loud, right now folks… ” When Your Bell Tolls ” … A Poem written & performed by Big Virge

Well what’s up folks …..

Dee Rasshole world facing alarm, all bout dee place !!!!!

I’ll just say these two words first ….

North Korea …. and move on …..

Texas getting beaten up by Hurricane Harvey !

Here in Barbados, it was a light hit that Irma gave, however, one surfer dead, a roof or two, severely disturbed, and I had a report of 7 foot of landfall at one point !

However, St Martin, Barbuda, Cuba and the list continues, of places either devastated, or severely damaged, Jose soon followed, if less forcefully, and now mainland America is taking liks’ AGAIN, from Irma !

Floridians trying to preserve their homes and lives, with all kinds of crazy talk, about staying in the face of one of the most powerful Hurricanes in HISTORY !!!!!

Good luck to em’ … !!!!!

Then we have Mexico going through a massive earthquake, and aftershocks, that closed down schools and much more throughout the country, Landslides in Africa, flooding in Italy & Asia …..

and, OF COURSE …. back to the disturbingly frequent

Alarm bells being rung, due to North Korean Nuclear Testing …..
which kind of makes Mr. Putin seem, quite tame, in comparison !!!

Well maybe, NOT … Tame … !!!!!!

Alarm bells are ringing, or maybe that’s Tolls, as this poem suggests ……
ALL OVER the place …. For REAL right now !!!!!!

It’s pretty clear that Mr. Trumps……

” Hire and Fire ” … Whitehouse …
rings bells quicker than huskies, pulling sleds !!!

Hence,

This poem DOES NOT ….

Definitively deal with the power of natures wrath, in delivering Final Bells for people, but, covers aspects that reflect on the idea of why & what you are due to face in these interesting, and somewhat disturbing days ahead ……

So far so good for me, however, having lost a good buddy recently,

RIP Ian ……..

…. it is clear that mortality for many is a SERIOUS thing, right now …..

I of course, send out condolences to anyone who has lost loved ones as a result of natural happenings of recent, but, also suggest to those who are currently suffering, due to human failings, and those who, more importantly, think they are beyond being touched by something that could just stop them in their tracks …..

THAT …..

You take note of these words, and once again, MORE IMPORTANTLY, The Warning Signs, that nature, and, CERTAIN HUMANS ……

KEEP GIVING …. !!!!!

….. that suggest that, maybe, people need to humble themselves right now, on all kinds of fronts !!!!

Not just in the face of those, that are a result of Mother Nature’s beautiful, powerful & at times, destructive weather !!!!!

Take care out there, wherever you are people, and remember that, eventually, they toll for us all ……

“April Who ? ” … written & performed by Big Virge

Yes Yes People !!!

Well, i’m back to sharing some thoughts on this crazy world of ours…..

…. from more political wrangles to, Nuclear tests, Brexit of course, the French Election, and North Korean moves to, President Trumps’, first 100 or so days in office, there has been much that could be deemed as foolish, of recent …….

So, as the month of April ends……

It struck me a while ago, that it seems a little unfair to give the burden of encompassing all the Fools on this earth, and their Foolish actions, one day of acknowledgment … being April the 1st ?!?

…. when it’s pretty clear now, that Foolishness runs 24/7, somewhere on this earth, within someones’ movements, actions or behaviour …..

So, this month’s little ditty gets into this day, and the fools of this earth, and suggests that April shouldn’t really have to carry the load, all on her own ……

So, take a listen…..
and don’t feel bad, if you deserve a fools cap …..

We’ve all been there at some time or another …..

“They Seem To Be Afraid ?” … written & performed by Big Virge

Well having today watched a good portion of President Trumps’ press conference, a month in, and after a rough couple of days, regarding conversations, Mike Flynn, Russia & matters surrounding national security ….

Blah Blah … Ha di Ha Blah …….

…. as well as, of course, the ongoing nonsense, that is Brexit ……

SM F’ing Head … ?!?

This would seem to be, as good a time as any, to share this poem, which was written a good few years ago, when freedom of speech for artists, was the topic in the UK, well, amongst the plethora of issues surrounding, basic freedoms, and indeed, as one reporter suggested to Mr. Trump today, the US 1st amendment, which, in no small part relates to the freedom of the press, it does seem, after watching him, and of course the usual ways that Politicians choose to basically, refuse to answer questions directly, even though they seem to have plenty to say, to the point where they, not only, rudely, interrupt !

They then have the cheek, to talk OVER, and in many instances, take over shows where they are merely, ” GUESTS “, rather than the host, one has to eventually ask yourself, what is it that they are SO AFRAID of hearing from ordinary people ?!?

….. and ……

in my case, artists who, coherently challenge, the rhetoric they love to push … ?!?

Especially, when it comes to the media, and, more importantly, the public, who they claim to serve, when they have the chance, and want to address ….

THE MESS … !!!!!!

…. as President Trump defined, what he’s walked into, in his speech today ….

Well, here are a few ideas and opinions as to what I think, particularly in this new age of political & social angst ….. has them somewhat reluctant, to let people outside of their web of WHATEVER ….. have their say ……

Don’t forget folks ….

Virges’ World … an album of spoken word and music, is available on various online platforms ……

Check it out, you might actually be surprised by what you find …..

” I Go ” … A poem written & performed by Big Virge

So folks, another month of 2016 gone, and we approach the end of the year, and the beginning of a new one, that will, as ever, be filled with many comings and goings …..

Obama goes … as Trump comes to the Whitehouse, Brexit’, well, who knows whether it’s coming or going, and if so, exactly how it will be effected … ???

Today, the indication is that there will be a new Italian PM, in 2017 ???

A lot of footballers are coming to the table, to expose the incredible levels of apparent, player abuse by British coaches !!!!!

Right wing movements across Europe, bar Austria, of all places, are on the go, and seemingly, on the rise …..

(A third of Austria’s populous voting for a Far Right group, should not though, be overlooked !)

Racism is definitely on the go, as ever, and immigration may well be the next thing to go, in terms of borders being open, to those escaping Syria in particular, but, I think that this is an excuse to keep more than Syrians, or more importantly, Muslims out of Europe …. and if Trump has his way, out of America too …..

Fidel gone, so who knows where Cuba will end up, in the coming months and years ???

Oh and just one quick mention of the case that has, somehow, found it’s way to being a mistrial … ?!?

…. that of, the shooting of Walter Scott by a certain, Officer Slager, as described in the piece, Open Season, which I posted recently …..

Looks like Officer Slagers’ case will be, yet another, to go on the list of cases against the police, that have left the victims family without any sense of justice, or respect for the fact, that, their loved one was essentially, gunned down in cold blood, by one charged with the duty to … ” Serve & Protect ” …

YEAH RIGHT … !!!!!

So many things going on …..

I figure that it’s time for me to explain and show, some of the places that I have been and will continue to …. Go …….

So, here are some of the places that ……..
