” So They Say ” … Prod by Strat Carter …

Well, the vibes are very PRO … The Ladies …these days now, aren’t they …. ???

Feminism movements on the rise, as well as, admissions of all kinds, from a lot of high flying, male executives, to the point where they are losing their jobs, or, at least walking, in certain cases, having had their fun, but NOW showing the remorse, and apparent conscience, that they had no problem ignoring, when they were doing, whatever they were doing to these ladies, that they apparently, shouldn’t of been …… !!!!!

Bad Boys … !!!!!
Bad Boys … !!!!!

Well, there are various sides to these types of stories, as I have found in my life, there most definitely, tend to be, with regard to ladies movements, especially those that have sexual connotations.

Of course, the smart men who want the puss to be all up in their world talking bout’

…. How they, “Love the way you connect with our movement !” …. type ish’, not realising that these smooth Mo Fo’s, be running game like we’ve always done, to get us some ….

Chris Rock drops some bombs about his previous marriage, in his stand-up show, ” Tambourine “, about how his own behaviour, of course, with … OTHER WOMEN …

Who, let me guess, had NO IDEA, that he was married, or, who the fuk he was … ?!!!?

Played their part in, his relationship’s demise !

Suffice to say, the point i’m making is that, hey, when it comes to matters of …..

Huh Hmmmm ….

” Relations ” ….

…. of varying degrees, between, women and men, both sexes need to hold our respective, hands up, and say ……

Hey, that’s some F’d up ish’, but we were both contributors to this bull …..

Men for well, being MEN … !!!!!

(Did u say what I did there ?
… think about it …)

and Ladies, well,

… for finding yourselves in, awkward scenarios, with, unwanted lotharios …. !!!
and for, blaming yourselves for things, which you clearly can’t blame yourselves for ……

Right ….. ???

(Did you see what I did there … ?
Man, it sucks to be honest sometimes !!! LOL !!!)

However, EVEN MORE IMPORTANTLY, for denying the truth, to the point where you then left other women to suffer, similar fates, due to your own fears and worries over …. careers etcetera …. ?!?

Let me AFFIRM that, I am also stating that, certain situations ….. are clearly beyond womens’ control, because some men are just, dangerous, deceitful asses, when it comes to their sexual wants and desires …. !!!!!

However, ladies, ladies ladies …..

You’re only now proving, how poor your decision making can be, when it comes to us guys, again, hate to say it, but y’all know it’s true, as do we, so be cool, and don’t get your knickers in a twist because of real lyrics ….

Like those that are in this month’s Big Virge Verse, put to music ……

Mister Strat Carter, was in a very creative mode, when he made this track off the, Virges’ World album debut …..

” Virgelements ” … A Poem written & performed by Big Virge

So how’s the world treating you people ?!?

Hopefully better than those in Florida who had to deal with a very different version of Valentines’ Day attention !!!!!

Funny how the word, ” Terrorism “, has not been applied to this individual’s act, wouldn’t you say ???

An act that he made, which appears, in no small way, to have been due to his following of, some quite clearly, extreme RIGHT WING (i.e. Fascist & Racist) views, that surely, within reason, could be defined as hate filled ?!?

Thus, this could be defined as a HATE CRIME, however, the subject of discussion has immediately swayed to, Gun Control, Hmmm …..

How about applying such attitudes to say … Bombs …

Bomb Controls …. ???

and I don’t mean those of a Nato type, which reminds me, Oxfam aren’t exactly as sweet as the wrapper appears, go look at what their emissaries have been dealing in … Fa F’ks sake … !!!

Anyway back to it,

Racism ….. ???

Racism Controls, which, as ridiculous an idea as it seems, might actually hinder people from making acts of this kind …

Maybe in the instance of a defined, Hate Crime, some Capital Punishment …. !?!

Well, the world turns and people get theirs, while others suffer, or sadly, die !

Today has seen the conviction of two SICK Whatevers …. ????

…. for their Paedohpile Abuses, a scholar of sorts, and a football coach in the UK.

The latter, who has something like 80 victims with more coming out ….
I mean SERIOUSLY …… ?!?

Words cannot express the level of disgust such things stir in me, especially when, in these cases, they’ve long since, got away with their wickedness, whilst the victims are forced to live with the nightmare, one, who it was stated, had an operation to stop him having children because of his fear of not being able to protect any that he may have had ….

As said, crazy ish folks, NASTY F’kd up and CRAZY !!!!!

However, life goes on right, Donald continues on his merry way, basically, ” Trumpifying’ “, anything he can, before the powers above him, feel that he needs to be reigned in some …..

So, in the spirit of Trump type glorification of oneself ….

This month’s little sumthin’ is named after me …..

The subject matter, like last month’s piece, is all encompassing, and relevant, in many ways, to much happening these days …..

So, check out some …. Virgelements’ ….

That’s right ……. VIRGELEMENTS folks ……. !!!!

Wanna know more, take a listen …..

Stay safe and be cool out there folks, people have never been easy, and most are making things, even more difficult than usual right about now ……

Peace and Guidance ….

The Virge Out.

” I’m The Cat WITHOUT The Hat ” …. A Poem written by Big Virge 22/11/2006

Well, as any good poet knows, ” Dr. Seuss “, ” Cat In the Hat “, type verse, is stuff you need to have at least read, ONCE, as it has touched millions of adults and children, across the globe, with it’s witty, clever, insight filled, rhyme schemes, that may have seemed, very basic and simple, but, ALWAYS offered a Pearl of Wisdom, somewhere within em’, so, as we are in the season of Festive Cheer ….

Here’s a poem that’s about as close as i’ll get to showing a slightly, lighter hearted side, to my poetic mind.

” Keep It Real !!! ” … Written & Performed by Big Virge

Okay folks so, it’s that time for me to drop some more, rhyme driven insights, on the world, and how we humans deal with living in it …..

So this month’s spoken word offering deals with a NOT SO Popular, or frequently used saying from back in the day …..

Hip Hop Inspired, in many ways, ” KEEPING IT REAL ” ….. has been used in so many ways now, that it goes WAY Beyond, those three words …..

These days, it’s pretty clear why the saying doesn’t hold as much what ???

I guess …. ” Swag ” …. in the world we live in today.

(Excuse my mis-appropriation of the term young’ guns !!!)

Simply, because the majority of people clearly, DO NOT, keep things real, from their talk, to their actions …….

A worrying trend when you look at the fact that we are a long way down the line of human history, so, I for one, would like to think that people would recognise the value of ACTUALLY, ” Keeping It REAL “, from beginning to end……

However, there are some issues with doing so now aren’t there … ???

The threat of some kind of public law being broken, to the point where imprisonment, at the least, could come your way !!!

Like say, Irish Landlord, Fergus Wilson, check his story out.

He’s been, Keeping It WRONG, on SO MANY LEVELS … !!!!!!

A Very Wealthy, and Prominent landlord in the United Kingdom !!!

He’s kept it VERY REAL, when telling one of his letting agents to stop, ” Coloured People “, from renting his homes, which he seems to think is okay, but that’s a whole different deal !
He has denied being racist, of course, and chose to defend himself in court, where he was advised to ditch such a policy, as it is discriminatory !!!!!

Now, I was told a long time ago, better the devil, or, racist you know, than the one that you don’t !!!

Mr Wilson’s assertion, that his comment about curries stinking out his properties, is “Political Correctness gone mad”, may not actually be, that far off the mark, but hey, that’s the way these days, you gotta be careful what you say right ?!?

Unless of course, you happen to be a President, or, any other description of a world leader ???

Hmmm … and how real are they eh ???

A question for another day, but, another one is, when one of these, ” Leaders “, starts to REALLY, ” Keep It Real “, in their talk, what do the masses choose to do ?

CRUCIFY them, for exposing who they really are …

(Unless You’re Bill Clinton of course ?!?)

….. Or, as seems to be the case now, be accused, from the ladies perspective mainly, of abusing them for, being well, REAL, even if it is in some VERY SLEAZY, and Disrespectful ways …. !!!!!

Depending on where your moral compass lands though right ???

So, quickly, let me just drop a view views on these harassment cases, from HollyWOOD, cos’ NUFF WOOD, LOL …. Seems to be being, thrown about that world, as it does, Britain’s corridors of power !!!!!

Surprised, well, I have to say that it’s about time we heard some folks, ” Keep It REAL, when it comes to what goes on, in Political Offices like Whitehall, and elsewhere.

It’s clear that homosexuality isn’t alien to Politics, but the disturbing nature of quite a few MP’s, arrangements to get sex, and now, their treatment of women, does indeed, leave much to be desired.

However, back to Hollywood, as much as I will at some point be thrown under the bus for expressing this view …. but, it’s my truth, in terms of how I see these accusations.

Okay so, yeah, I have to believe that certain accusations have been dismissed firstly, by the police in certain cases, because there are instances that have come to light, that have indicated that they have done this with paedophile claims and others, over the years, however, there has to be some assessment of where these claims are coming from …..

Actors and ACTRESSES …..

AKA as …. Pretenders, or one could go as far as to say …..

PROFESSIONALLY TRAINED, Highly Paid Liars …. !!!!!

YEAH, I Said It …. LIARS ….. !!!!!!

Now, let me MAKE CLEAR, I am NOT suggesting, that every claim that has been made, is some kind of lie, however, what I am saying, is that in an industry based on ….

ElevATING the level of ATTENTION, an individual receives, I Repeat, ATTENTION, that people receive, and clearly, YEARN FOR, for their ability to again, ” PRETEND “, to be something, or, SOMEONE Else……

Well, one has to at least, question, the volume that have … ALL OF A SUDDEN, started to spring up, from here, there and everywhere, Cosby, Weinstein, Louis CK, Kevin Spacey, and a number of Politicians, to start with … ???

Have you noticed a theme with these people though ……

Well, let me point you in a few directions ….. with a few questions … ???

Poverty …. Ummmmm’ NAH …..
NONE of the ACCUSED are, some Tramp of Road !!!
A Reputation for Honesty & Integrity … Errmmm’, Note I Said POLITICIANS as well so Uh Uh.

Wealth ….. Ummmmm’ ….. Well HELL YEAH ….. !!!!!!!
Power …… Ummmmm’ ….. NO BRAINER ….. Well HELL YEAH ….. !!!!!!!

Influence ….. Well, in terms of career, all the above could certainly be said to have at least got connections to the fast lane to fame, or, a route to power … !!!!!

And THAT WORD ….

” FAME “, is a very, SIGNIFICANT one in these scenarios !!!!!

and finally, the time lapse between these TERRIBLE Things, Including RAPE, being declared, as what occurred !!!!!!

Now, as said, the victims will, in many cases state that, as previously suggested, they were NOT, taken seriously !

As said, it’s ridiculous, in my view, to think that this didn’t happen to a good set of victims, however, if my … PERSONAL SPACE, was imposed upon like that, there is NO F’ing WAY … I REPEAT …..

NO F’ING WAY….. !!!!!!

I’m gonna let that lie for 20 years, and then because of some new wave of impersonal messaging, sent via modern tech, use THAT, as a platform to wage some kind of … ” Bandwagon War “, against something, that, as claimed, was such a TERRIBLE Thing, that it DESTROYED MY LIFE, as some have suggested it has done …..

Even though ???

….. in the case of these Hollywood Victims, they not only, ” Kept MUM “, as in, “quiet”, but then, CONTINUED to work in this industry, where, as now seems to be the case, this type of behaviour is prevalent, due to the predatory nature of it’s members.

Hollywood is a very, ” Special Club “, and i’m pretty sure that women KNOW THAT, who join it, child stars get a pass, however, Mummy and Daddy of said stars, not so much !

Don’t play dumb, when you read the stories, hear the rumours, and see certain things going on …. KEEP IT REAL eh ….. ?!?

ESPECIALLY with, your children … !!!!!!

However, a quick word for those accused, as a man who, in a working environment, has been accused of sexual harassment once, here is why I hold the views I do, and can say what I have previously.

A Young Female, let’s say, tried this, ” Harassment Claim “, because she WASN’T, getting the attention she CLEARLY WANTED, from me, but when she did, it became an issue when I explained that, in her case, walking about, exposing your thong in an office, encourages such thinking in Red-Blooded, young males, who unlike Weinstein and them, are tall and muscular.

So, off she trots to her boss to give the big sob story ???

Now, him being, one of those males who adheres more to being feminine, than being manly, without question, decides to run to TOP MANAGEMENT, one of whom I had been told, was a bit of a racist, to expose my e-mails to this well, female … who, if I had flipped the script, could of accused of Harassment, due to various, more subtle ways of doing so ?!?

However, of course, My Job and Career, if such a thing was affirmed, could have been irreparably damaged, but, concede to the threat ???

Uh Uh …
NOT … THIS MAN …

I told my boss, do whatever, my position is the same as the e-mails state, fire me if they see it her way !!!

Now, one has to remember the pressure that such a claim puts on a brain, but hey, I continued to work for a while with this hanging, only to be told a week or so later, that, having read my mails, the BIG Bosses, apparently told my boss that,

“Virgil is right and to be honest, we’re glad he told her straight, so, tell him we’re dismissing her claim, and he has nothing to worry about !”

Now I get that there were a lot of males in this scenario, but hey, the first one who heard the claim, didn’t blink, before pushing it higher up the office management chain, without question !!!

So, back to the Hollywood lot, a good few of these women are older now, ad may even be seeking some attention to regain some spotlight, it’s not beyond reason to think that this could apply to some of these claimants, and, as for the guys, well, guys are probably equally, if not, more likely to keep quiet for fear of what that will say about them, let alone, the idea that another male abused them sexually, so there is more to the idea that …… Anyone …. !!!!!

…… be they, the female in my scenario, who may I note, in the same office, a year or so later, ended up working on my floor, and quickly made peace with me, as soon as I approached and suggested that we, ” Play Nice ! “.

In her case, just a bit of attention sorted her in the end.

However, there is proof that people, and, in this case, yes I mean predominantly women, can say or do things to cover their own, poor movements & choices, because it’s not been unusual to hear certain victims state that they didn’t say anything, due to the FEAR of what it might do to their career … ?!?

… which again. leads anyone with some common sense, to see that the level of … ” Apparent Abuse “, was and has been known about, and evidently, seen as acceptable within the Hollywood Ringer ….

up to now at least …..

and thus, this month’s piece, explains how I see the fraudulent manner in which, such an APPARENTLY, RIGHTEOUS expression, has been ABUSED, by more than actors and actresses, and their fraternity of FAKERS, but by, ” Road Man “, ” Gyal “, and basically, pretty much everyone who dared to run the phrase, as if they ever lived their life in it’s entirety by …

” Keeping It real ” ….

I Think NOT.

…. and the way that Evidence & Accusations keep surfacing currently, it’s pretty clear that the expression has drifted into the backwaters……

…… because ………

” Keeping It Real ” …. is being … SLAUGHTERED … !!!!!

So, take a listen,
if you think you’re righteous enough …. ?!?
