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

So folks, the World Cup Party has run it’s course !!!

France were basically worth the title, although the final wasn’t the greatest, contrary to the barefaced lies that a lot of these well paid commentators are churning out.

The dollar definitely dictates more than foreign policy, it dictates so much now, that it’s pretty crazy to see ” Allegedly ” … TOP CLASS Footballers, prove themselves to be anything but, worth the price tags they carry around with them now.

Neymar being one of those, and the less said about Brazils’ effort the better.

Don’t get me wrong, there were as ever, some truly OUTSTANDING Goals, however, to say this was one of the best World Cups’ of all time … ???

I think there are more and more people who are in need of some Thanos Treatment, because they’re making it very hard for those of us who call things as we see them, to do so, without being labelled some kind of killjoy.

It’s not that at all, but if England under Gareth Southgate of all managers, could get to the Semi Final, then maybe people need to just check this idea of how great this World Cup actually proved itself to be.

Not so great, more like adequate, is more the vibe i’m working with from what I saw.

However, hooliganism seemed to be almost non-existent !!!

Whatever is being said about Vladimir, his boys and organisers do not mess about, as was proven by the Russian Team, when suitably motivated it would seem, as well as the various parties tasked with making things run smoothly.

Since my last post, Kim, Vlad and The Queen have all spent time with the Trumpster’, as of course did Piers Morgan, his great mate, who got to chill with The US President on Air Force One !

Meanwhile Brexit’ talks are getting hotter and hotter, and parties have left Theresa’s cabinet, parties working for Oxfam have been found to be partying a little too much with certain, young Haitians … !!!!!!

Barbados now has a new party running the country, or does it … ???

The LGBT Party and Rainbow Flags have quickly found their place amongst Bajans, under our first, Lesbian Prime Minister, which of course, most people are now saying, shouldn’t, and, doesn’t matter !

Funny that, for such a religiously, conservative country …. ???

Well again, ” Apparently “… ?!?

I wonder is that the same kind of matter, that, Black Lives’, have claimed as their own ???

… Or …

The type that denies a man, any sense of dignity, upon his recognition and acceptance, that he has some black in him, as was found out by, Officer Cleon Brown in Michigan, who then filed a claim against the force for it’s racist attitude to his announcement of his black portion, which, immediately had him referred to as Kunta, as in the Roots Slave Character ….

” Lovingly ‘ , by one of his colleagues … !?!

However, the case seemed to uncover that some rather racist comments were made by Officer Brown HIMSELF, upon receiving the news … ???

Be careful what you are … ” Party to ” … folks.

Ask Macron, or some of the interior Ministers of Italy, who unashamedly are adopting very, i’ll say, right wing attitudes towards migrants.

Spike Lee ranted about it not so long ago, but something as ridiculous as Brexit’, has bred a mentality that America had no problem embracing, and it isn’t unreasonable to suggest that much of Europe, whether publicly or behind closed doors, seem to be not as far left of, as many might claim, thus, I had to re-record this piece and drop it one more time before anything is finalised, if it actually ever will be when it comes to Brexit’ !!!!!

Please people, as is said in this piece, these days, prob more than ever before, you REALLY Need to Party … SMARTLY … !!!!!

Soon to be released off the, ” On The Virge Album “, where these words have received some very different treatment, musically, so, take a listen folks …..

and ……..

as recently re-recorded

Party ……

” Subject Matter ” … A Poem written & performed by Big Virge

So folks …..

Here we are in 2018 …. !!!!!

and this is how it starts …..

Government Shutdown in President Trump’s … GREAT AMERICA …

Remember the mans’ slogan people … !!!!!

Racial slurs of a quite extreme nature regarding a certain, Meghan Markle from the partner, Uh Hmmm …… of UKIP’s current leader, Henry Bolton.

Now this is the woman he left his wife, Tatiana Smurova, a good ol’ British name, for……

Some topless model, Jo Marney, who probably should reserve her commentary on people, as she is hardly, the hottest white chick that ever walked the earth.

It’s incredible how they seem so deluded about their, white whatever, and by ” They ” ……

YES i’m including, President Trump, who clearly had, or maybe, has no issue with sleeping with Porn Pro’s, like Stormy Daniels no less, with her Big Fake Titties, and, flat old butt ….

Now don’t get me wrong, she’s a damn site better than Boltons bit on the side, but, the idea that these people can speak in such derogatory ways about foreign people and their nations, in the case of Trump, and just about any immigrants, EXCEPT THEMSELVES, in the case of the UKIP faithful, who, like Mr. Trump, vehemently denies any form of racist attitude ….. ?!?!?

Hmmmm … well, let’s move on, and of course, as a new year begins, money matters become a hot topic, although, right about now, not so many appear to be flossing quite like they used to.

Barbados seems reluctant in an election year, to resolve a DISGUSTING, Sewage issue on it’s South Coast, which has apparently drawn attention from British, Canadian and US Tourist Boards, who are advising tourists that it’s not quite so much of a Caribbean Island Paradise getaway, right now !

So, moving on, we have an abundance of Gay / Whatever issues, from poor old Ginuwine’ being accused of being Trans-Phobic ….

WHATEVER The Fuck that means …. !!?!!

I guess i’m Trans phobic too ….

Maybe of being Trans-Warped into a world where people who are straight are vilified, for merely expressing a preference to stick to what they like, rather than jump on the LGBT Train, to make the poor little whatevers’, feel comfortable.

This leads me to Mr. Chappelle’s, ” Equanimity “, stand up show, which drew some attention for his LGBT routine, rather than his Emmett Till, race / immigration segment, which was not only a very serious reminder of the issues of black people, in America and across the globe, but also a very clever piece of stand-up comedy !

Now I def’ have my issues with much of Daves’ past material, however, one thing that can’t be denied is his comedy genius, when directed appropriately, but as he would probably say,

“Hey, i’m just f’ing around, and why the fuck are people so sensitive ?”

Indeed ……

As he relates stories of his varying issues with audience members, at his live shows, regarding everything from inter-racial relationships, to the whole taboo subject of well, not falling in line with the pink parade, it does seem increasingly ridiculous, the levels of importance being placed on a recently formed movement, whilst the struggles of black folks, are still demeaned, and in fact, ridiculed now, as some form of satiric attempt to wake racists up.

Hmmm …..

YEAH ALRIGHT …..

…. and this leads me to my viewing of Dear White People, the series, written by Justin Simien who has affirmed that the main character, who is a nerdy journo wannabee’, who happens to have his sexuality issues. Issues which are resolved by him affirming that he’s into men, underpinning the issue of racism on college campuses, especially those that have been quite open about having, black face parties of recent.

Well, I have to say, perhaps a little less, freaky, sexual stuff, and more grit regarding the race issue, would have been nice to see, especially in Trumps America !

Instead, what we get is an abundance of quite, crass humour, about a subject that, in this day and age of racist outbursts, from leaders, actors, sports people ….. etcetera etcetera, this Netflix show could of been more than some attempt to give white folks something, to dismiss as being, light-hearted fodder for them to be able to say, they see the problems we face and get it now ….

Something that, I very much doubt that they’ll get from the show if they got past the first couple of episodes, which quickly shift from race to sexuality, and back again, within a 30 minute show, attempting to cover college life.

Suffice to say, much like Django before it, it just shows me how differently black folks from America, and those from places like Barbados, now think.

It’s quite worrying, to say the least, when it comes to what’s important, regarding matters of racism, and our part in the whole allowance of it, in todays world.

Hiding behind comedy and media, is not what the debate needs, it needs to get REAL, and stop diluting the discussion, by placing it alongside Trans-whatev… issues, as if, as Chappelle puts it, they are the Olympic Champs of suffering & oppression, when it’s quite clear the level of power they possess, and have had for a considerable time, even if they were behind closet doors, wielding it.

This leads me to Molly’s Game, Chastain and Idris, going at it, to represent the trials and tribulations of skier, Molly Bloom, who, essentially ran the biggest, underground poker games of recent times, that had the likes of Tobey Maguire, Matt Damon, and Ben Affleck, amongst it’s participants, alongside Russian Mafia and some of the richest men in the world, as she states in an interview with Ellen, one of whom lost 100 Mill one night, and came back and paid his debt the next day !!!!!

CRAZY CRAZY CRAZY ….. !!!!!!

Elba and Chastain are EXCELLENT, in my humble opinion, even though Idris’s character is fictional, their scenes together, are something to behold.

Amazingly, Bloom’s story seems to stick to the subject, rather than throw in random subject matter, to forward agendas.

It’s a straight up film about a very crazy passage in this womans’ life, suffice to say I really enjoyed it, as I did the new Star Wars, apart from it being Disneyfied’, a little too much, which would also be my only issue with the new Thor.

A Very Entertaining ride, but for something as dark as Ragnarok, the end of times, it did lean a little too much perhaps, towards being light hearted and funny …..

So, in assessing how things seem to be heading this year, I think this post is as appropriate a piece as any, to start this year with, because it was inspired by what I feel is the weakening of material in many areas of entertainment now, in some vain attempt to, not offend.

Well, I for one, will never stop pushing that button, that apparently, President Trump, and his North Korean nemesis, keep claiming they’ll push, if the other doesn’t behave.

Well, let’s hope they’re just waving their respective genitalia around for show, and don’t end up blowing holes in this world, because as this poem suggests, I think we have enough that currently need filling ……

There’s so much more that could be included in this post, however, for now, this month’s subject …. is ….
