Ok peeps …. back to business !!!! written by Big Virge 9/5/2009

Apologies again people, for the lack of posts in recent times but, have been biz trying to ensure the summer has me on stages and in studios somewhere or t’other !!!

I did perform at the Jazz Cafe poetry slam during the Camden Crawl weekender a couple of weeks back, it’s been a while but felt great to be up on stage giving it to a live audience, even if the competition was somewhat farcical in parts (One judge being the girlfriend of one of the competitors in the comp ???)

However, all went well and I was apparently fourth in the final ? although, the point scoring somehow got mis-calculated …. errr hmmm ….!!!…. but it was nice to get a warm response from the audience, particularly from one of the security guards who clearly felt aggrieved at the fact that I didn’t win, to the point where, he felt he should point out to the eventual winner that I’d beaten him !!!! ha ha …. but, the point of my being there, knowing how these events work was not to win but to merely get some exposure as the event was filmed, and to more importantly have the chance to be on the same stage as many of my heroes and artistic inspirations have been, the likes of Pharoahe Monch, Lee “Scratch” Perry & Gil Scott Heron amongst many others.

That aside, I’ve just been putting some bits and bobs together and trying to put some new stuff down to beats which hopefully will come to fruition soon ….. so, as Shaw Taylor used to say for you oldies ….. ” Keep em’ peeled folks !!!! ”

Clearly, the world is continuing to go through dramatic changes and clearly more is bad than good but as someone told me recently, we are now in the age of aquarius and a new awareness is in the process of spreading …….. well I do hope so folks !!!!!

In the meantime, I’m a keep doing my thing as best I can and keep pushing my words for the enlightened herds.

Peace y’all ….. The Virge
