So, what’s been happening …. ? … written by Big Virge 21/3/2016

Yes Yes People ……. !!!

Goodness me, these posts are getting less and less frequent, but thankfully, for a change, in this instance, it’s because i’ve been as busy as those, now choosing to create, levels of fear, destruction and terror, across the globe … !!!!!

Belgium today, and of recent, Paris, Nigeria, The U.S., South Africa and heaven knows where else on this seemingly, god-forsaken planet of ours !

So, i’ve been busy getting down to some, musical creativity, which I shall be sharing shortly, but, travelling has drained me somewhat, and I have other dramatic changes, about to take shape, within my life, that will, in all honesty, avail me further separation from people, than I already have, but that’s a whole other post !!!

So, before I get to the interesting stuff, I cannot possibly ignore this Election Race, Sanders & Clinton vs The Trump road show, of well, Hoopla & Encouragement of well, free expression …..

Well, for him at least ….. !!!

I am hearing and seeing all sorts of strange talk, and even, support for Clinton, as if she’s some kind of saint ?

Disdain for Donald, as if he was literally, the duck who bears his name, being dismissed by everything & everyone as a blowhard, who is destroying the …

” Good Ol’ Values ”

of the ever so … ONCE GREAT U.S. of A-holes …..

Well, he seems to be doing a great job of making it easy to believe that America is filled with them !!!

At least, at the levels of society, where he and his pals are at !

Did I say pals ?

Hmmmm, well, they are clearly NOT SO PALLY now, or, are they … ???

I even heard a man tell me that he feels that Trump is doing, whatever it is his campaigning does, to help Clinton win ?!!!?

Well, anything’s possible when dealing with the multitude of …
Blood-sucking insects, that define the word, Poli – Tics’ ….. !!!!!!

It’s amazing to me though, that when elections are not at the forefront of everyones’ minds, that people seem to, pretty much, all concur that politicians are liars and cheats, and are not to be trusted, but, when Election time does come around, especially in as influential a country, as America is ….

People suddenly find ways to validate their supporting, as many now claim, the better of the evils being offered up …. ?!?

Well, now that I am watching the new Lucifer TV series, one has to wonder if people, as a matter of course, will accept wickedness on some …. ” Just because … “, basis, rather than deny wickedness, as soon as they sniff any sense of it, which you’d think a logical person would do, but in 2016, logical behaviour now seems to be as rare, as a Trump Rally that preaches love and unity, well almost … !!!

There are one or two stand up people left, but, I do literally mean, ” The Odd “, one or two !!!!!

Peoples’ memory spans, and / or, ability to dismiss things that they know deep down in their hearts, that they are uncomfortable with, is truly astonishing … !!!!!

…. but hey, we’re al about to get penned in, if Trump, or, Boko Haram, or ISIS, get their way right.

Did you get what I did ?

The best play on words I saw recently, is that the west put the IS … in CRISIS … !!!!!

One to think on …….

The wheels have definitely, been set in motion, via Mr. Trumps’ rather, INFLATED EGO, and rhetoric !!!!!

However, instead of censoring, or brandishing him as being essentially ….

” Brutally Frank “, with his opinions, be they, for the camera or not, people are letting his talk, limit their rational thinking, in my opinion !

It is unwise to suggest that he can’t win this presidential race, simply because of the level of monetary influence and power, that he has, it is also unwise to trust in people who are using, YOUR MONEY, to finance their bid for office !

Unless you are gonna be able to influence their policy movements, if they get the BIG JOB !!!!!

” Go Fund Me “, type campaigns, for presidential hopefuls, is so crazy to me, that I really don’t even think I can express what I feel about individuals, parting with their, hard earned cash, to put it into, what are, essentially, hot air balloons, which would be a suitable description for the likes of all those running their chops about doing what exactly ???

Making America … GREAT again,
Making America … Unified & Peaceful
Making America … Proud again

Blah di Blah Blah …
F’ing blah ….. !!!!!

I think people need to take a second, and maybe, check through the histories of the combatants, and really assess how trustworthy these people are, from Clintons admission of being essentially, down with the types of individuals who stood for the ideals of Eugenics and basically, white supremacy …..

Such as, Margaret Sanger, look her up, the video is somewhere to be found on the, “Inter-web”, and then maybe, all these women chatting the …

“Oh well, it’s about time a woman got into power in the US.” … CROTCH … !!!

…. might wanna, just check her credentials, from a historical standpoint, and then maybe re-think, just a little bit … ?!?

The sterilisation of black people, appears to have been one of Sangers’ beliefs, as being beneficial to the human races’ progression !?!

Can a woman who claimed to support such a person, be suitable for a country that can’t even get past colour, when it comes to the Oscars ?!?

As said, these days, I choose not to express my point of view so much, which is a personal choice, as it’s become clear that, it’s really becoming somewhat of a literal

FREE FOR ALL …. out there !!!

… from sexuality, and the progressive growth in the pushing of certain imagery, into the psyches’ of the generations to follow, to the continual, confusing situation regarding Muslims ?!?

Having just returned from the UK, for all the apparent, Anti-Muslim Sentiment, I really saw, no level of panic amongst those walking next to, and or, working with Muslims.

In fact, England seems, as it always does, to be a bed of roses, COLD & POOR Roses, for the most part !!!!!

However, nothing too thorny was on display ?!?

So, when the politicians, or aspiring ones, like Mr. Trump, run their gums about the same people, who they seem, moments later, to be happy to be shaking hands, and doing business deals with, people should just, STOP and THINK, for a second, before jumping on the first train to, ” Hatesville’ “, behind some talk that essentially, garners attention, and stirs up a melting pot, that, the normal, ” Average Joe “, has to dip his hand in and confront, on a daily basis, which is one, that in all reality, isn’t necessarily one, that scaremongers, like Nigel Farage & their ilk, keep spouting vitriol about, that states a need to retain, some sense I guess, of Sovereignty, in this, ever changing world of ours.

I always find it interesting, when a man on the street, like say, my good self, tells it as it is, and is, Immediately labelled as being ….

Aggressive, Vicious, or even, BRUTAL, in my use of language and expression ?

Well, now y’all DEFINITELY KNOW, what brutal talk is … and it ain’t coming from the likes of me !!!!!

It’s coming from a man whose in, designer, tailored, bespoke suits, and who is a business mogul who has buildings named after himself !!!

The type of man who has a TV Show, that many, who are trying to slam him now, have probably indulged in watching, and, dare I say, found entertaining !

I actually, quite like Donald Trump, simply because …..

If he’s lying about his feelings, to get to the BIG SEAT, he’s pretty good at it !!!

However, if he is exposing the REAL Attitudes, of those in the corridors of power, particularly, Republicans, and garnering support from Americans, for speaking the things that most, have been and are currently thinking, but won’t say, then I applaud him, because he’s about the ONLY one doing it, including Mr. Obama !!!!!

Mr. Trump has done so, in a way that isn’t covered in sweet talk, to get people to take a nice, small slice of the cake, while he eats big !

You know why …. ?

Because …..

He already eats BIG, and is basically telling the world, if I get to be THE MAN, there’s about to be some,

REAL CHANGE, UP IN THIS BITCH … !!!!!!

… and, the poor may not even get any of the loose change, that he ever has in his pockets, i’d suggest, if he ever has any loose change in his pockets, at all now !!!

The warning is a STARK ONE !!!

Things may just become, REALLY BRUTAL, if people don’t start to recognise that, nice suits, ties and fancy speeches, do not, good leaders make ….. !!!

What does ?

Well, if you can pick one, throughout American, Political History, then feel free to let me know ……

For the meantime, I suggest you look beyond the fancy talk, rhetoric and Political Hoopla, that is going on, and see through the show, cos they are all very impressive actors, who know how to give you a … DAMNED GOOD SHOW … !!!

but be careful of, what it all bodes …… !!!!!

Signing off for now, as I ease back & chill, whilst listening to some cool sounds, from the hands of Nitin Sawhney, and funnily enough, one of the tracks that came on whilst I was constructing this post was called,

” Serpents ” ……

I’ll say no more ……

For Now ….

Stay Blessed folks.

A bit of … “Here”, leading to some of … “There” … Philly Diaries 1 … written by Big Virge 20/6/2013

Yes Yes folks ….

What’s good in your zone … ???

Well, in mine, down the south coast of Bim, surrounded by white folks, it ain’t a joke, as the rogues looking to get a quick pay off, are getting close !!!

Prior to leaving these shores recently, it had become evident that many south coast beach front properties were being robbed, even the Jamaican PM’s fam had a safe taken, apparently !!!

Now, the interesting part of that story is that, in speaking to a Jamaican buddy, who has a business here, recently, his reaction was most interesting when hearing about the robbery of Jamaican Dignitaries ….

His reaction was,

“Good, she and her family continue to leave people impoverished whilst living a lavish lifestyle, and then, have the cheek to claim to care about the poor people of Jamaica !!!”

Harsh right !!!?!!!

Well, upon reflection, one would need to assess any level of sympathy you have for people of such ilks, and those, within the hierarchies of society ……..

I do not advocate, robbing and teefing on any level, however, much like Chris Rock done say bout’ beating woman,

“I ain’t about to beat them, but, I will shake the shit out of a bitch, to wake her the fuck up !!!” …. (paraphrased of course) ….

So, in applying it to Barbados and the slow, but sure, rise in crime, who deserves to be robbed, or, better still, who can afford to be robbed uh people ???

I just picked up some food in the Lanterns Mall, and had a discussion with the girls, who were quick to say that, you know what, all these poor people, robbing who they think have money, well, as one of those who isn’t, poverty stricken, but, who still needs to get paid to maintain, I would say this to these young brothers :

“Fellas, is it me, or, is it those around me, who are affecting your ability to live as you’d like ?!?”

“Are your ideals of what you NEED, in perspective and logical ?!?”

….. come on guys, robbing your own is not cool, even if they may live a little differently, note, differently, NOT BETTER, material things, DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT …… make a Happy Person !!!

Hard as it is to believe, dont let the big cars, trophy wives and husbands, fool you, behind closed doors, many of these people are some of the most unhappy, twisted, lost souls you will ever find, believe in that … !!!

….. just look at how some of these REALLY HIGH PROFILE actors die, not peacefully, in many cases.

Thus, a quick RIP to James Gandolfini !!!

I know i’m gonna get a WHAT !?!, from most people, but, never watched a full episode of The Sopranos, but, in anything i’ve seen with him, he was always very good, and by initial tributes, seemed to be a very cool dude offscreen !!!

R.I.P. JG

So, talking of cool people, and the US, here is my first instalment of my Philadelphia diaries …..

However, due to this news of men moving in my area, waving and pointing guns at workers, during the day, I have to start with a conversation I had with my new, Jamaican, U.S. buddy, “Reggae Surge”, from G-Town radio, who spoke on a situation he was part of, not so long ago in Jamaica, having been raised there, but, having spent a lengthy period away from the island.

He explained how he had returned to JA, for a holiday, and was in his old neighbourhood, so, had decided to go for a walk in his old district, late one night. He got into what would of been an old stomping ground, and said that he felt as if there was danger in the air, but, due to his being Jamaican, felt comfortable to carry on walking, but, having got to an old block of his, was quickly, in essence, scoped by a guy on a stoop, who, immediately spoke to him in a very aggressive tone, only for him to be shouted at by a man behind him, who knew Surge, from way back, who quickly explained to the man,

“Yow, he is so and so’s nephew/whatever, jus cool nah man, and let man roll !!!”.

Surge said he was told in no uncertain terms afterwards, “Don’t move so bredrin, Jamaica has changed, so, cool you cool, but, watch yourself !!!”.

Now, Jamaica seems to get a bad rep, I have yet to go, but, it does sound as though people need to recognise, from a global perspective, the dangers of being a … “Have Not”, in todays’ society of … ” Bling Blang Wrong !!! ”

I had a conversation in my hotel in Philly, with a couple from Connecticut, so, ofcourse, I brought up the subject of the Newton shootings with this elderly couple, now, it was clear that the husband was wary, but, had asked me for local info, thinking I was a local, but, when I started on the school shooting, his wife/partner, was quick to express her sadness and dismay at such a crazy happening, but, it always begs the question in my mind, it’s fine when we black folks have got it going on in our neighbourhoods, but, once it encroaches on white folks bliss-filled, neighbourhoods, it’s a SERIOUS matter, that needs to be addressed, with immediate effect !!!

Hmmmm, one has to hope that these days, less of these primitive attitudes exist, but, in reality, it would seem, as it has always done, as though the importance of safety for people, does not revolve around black communities.

Sad, but, I think, ultimately true.

In leaving this subject for now, I was explaining to the girls in Lanterns. that, the mindset of the people robbing, is seriously corrupted, when, as i’ve quoted before, men like RZA speak it loud and clear in interviews ….

Ask a F’ing Nigga to go rob some OTHER Niggas, they’re in the car before you, but ask them to go after Police, or, heaven forbid, Politicians, and those within the Corporate World, who hold the REAL MONEY, and who truly live, in my opinion, way beyond their needs, not only is there …. silence ……….

….. but, these same apparent, Bad Bwoy, Street Thugs and Killers, become very distant.

I remember reading a piece of my art, which speaks on Black on Black issues, to a young black man, who lived up the road from me in London, one day, only to hear,

“Very Good, but, you should be careful, speaking THAT STUFF !!!”

….. as if, trying to uplift the mindset of our people, was some kind of …

” Cardinal Sin !!! ”

I really hope, as i’ve just been told, that, when corrupt practises are being found to be true, in echelons, above and beyond the levels of crime that are clearly, disturbing more and more people now, that, the people of this island stand up and be counted, because the best way to stop a lot of this foolishness is to stand firm collectively, and ensure that these rogue criminals, be they street, or, more importantly, officials charged with peoples’ safety, that, they are challenged publicly/internationally, if needs be, a la the ongoing rape debacle of the two English Women, and with immediate effect !!!!!

Don’t get tie up people, I am not saying, try and play, ” Daddy Big Bollocks “, if an intruder comes into your home with weaponry, but, I hope you all, whether white, black, rich or poor, get the gist of what i’m saying !!!!!

Don’t wait until,

” It happens to you !!! “, to be concerned.

…. be concerned NOW, as you should always be & as i’ve said recently, people, stop with all this, divisive bullchit !!!

…and …

” Try Your Best Yes …
Your … VERY … BEST !!!
to make a … ” DIFFERENCE ”

So, to my struggling brothers & sisters ….

As my big brother, “Jabba”, from Jabsrocking, done show me …

“Who Jah Bless, No-one curse …
Why you want to steal … ?
from your Brother, ” FIRST ??? ”

Stop the Violence … !!!

&

Stop the Fukry … !!!!!!!!!!

Come on people …. !!!

One love & Bless up y’all …
