Now ladies and gents, B4 I get into this, let me explain why I’m posting this particular piece now.
Firstly, may I wish myself a happy b’day !!!! as I became a year older this week, however, it must just be me as I’m getting older, but it’s simply becoming just another day to me now …..
Anyway, as I was saying …….
I’ve been chillin this week taking things easy and as per my post last week, what a surprise !!!!, the weather has changed again !!! and this weekend is not looking so nice ….. surprisingly ……. Noooooooooooootttttt !!! ….
So I’ve taken in some films and music mostly this week, however, I stumbled upon a classic movie which I managed to miss at the time, in fact, missed for 20 years !!!!!
If you haven’t seen “Talk Radio” and ur into the whole ideal of free speech even if it hurts / kills !!! then this movie is for you, not gonna go into too many details but basically I watched “Crash” first and then caught this movie straight after which was quite a double header !!!!
Talk Radio revolves around a late night radio talk show host, “Barry Champlain” brilliantly played by “Eric Bogosian” who’s charachter in the film, is …… as free speaking as they come !!!!
The movie is as said, a MUST WATCH b’cos of the honesty and clear depiction of the dangers of speaking your mind which has made me think about the world we now live in, a world filled with double standards and civil liberties and freedoms diminishing.
This is where the film made it’s mark on me b’cos as a writer and believer in free speech it is amazing to think that an Oliver Stone directed flick from 1988 could have been so ahead of it’s time and be so on point about an issue that clearly scares many people, especially today, the ability to just be honest with your thoughts and speak your mind.
Why are people like that ?????, well, that’s for you to decide, but me, well ….. I think it’s pretty sick ! how we do the whole “Politically Correct” …. politeness thing, (in the worst sense of the word) particularly in London, but hey, such is life right !?!
Well, there is a scene that kind of depicts what I’m about to present as a piece of poetry in another very good flick, being the brutally honest “F**K You” scene in Spike Lee’s “25th Hour”, where Edward Norton is in a toilet looking in the mirror reflecting on society and people in the most aggressively vocal manner I think I’ve ever seen on film up to this week !!!!
The scene stands out in the movie as does the scene in Talk Radio where Bogosian’s charachter is left to air his demons on air alone, but, as said I don’t want to spoil it for those who’ve not seen it, just do it if you haven’t yet, you won’t be disappointed trust me ……..
Anyway, here comes one of my many Champlain type moments in poetic form, not one of my most cleverly written poems, but certainly one of my most honest and expressively angry constructions !
So ….. prepare yourself now, as you have been warned ….. peace y’all

Isn’t it amazing wot a bit of sunshine can do eh . . . . !?! . . . having started my summer in Marseille where the weather was pretty nice a couple of weeks back, England was not a place I was lookin 4ward to coming back to !!!, but, now the weather has changed it’s amazing the way it can change how you feel ….. (even if, as is the case here that change is shortlived !)
The weather like the people here, can be kind of extreme, (all four seasons in an hour chit) but when it’s nice it is nice that’s for sure …. so this is a quick post for those of you who are reading my chit thinking I’m always down on the country and things in general, well today I’m feelin nice having woken up to warm sunshine …
The sun and all it brings ….. energy, sun tans, etc is the food for a smile and a chilled out vibe wherever you are.
Let’s not get it twisted though ! London especially, is no Caribbean beach or South American Paradise but as said when the sun shines, it’s a damn site nicer than when it rains eh ????
I’ve got my tunes pumping and am sure gonna light up sumthin ….. real soon !!!!!
So I hope for all our sakes we get a heatwave that’s consistent and not uncomfortable this year cos the heat in London can get to be too much as recent years have shown, but trust, the weekends here so ppl get out there and have some fun and if not chill the F out, 4get the bullchit for the wknd and sit back and relax as I intend to do …..
Peace y’all and have fun whateva u do and be safe ……..
