The Knight still rides ….. written & performed by Big Virge

So, as the months go on of this rather crazy 2017, it’s time to drop the final album cut, for The Dark Knight of A Different Type ….

Right about now, he’s a busy fella, trying to stop all dee furry’ going on all over this world of ours right now …. !!!!!

But ….

He at least has some hard beats to move with ….. !!!!!

On production duties, Mr. Strat Carter, and, Mr. Anthony Lowhar, alongside of my vocals ….

An old school sound for an old school type of crimefighter, and, in this case, rhyme writer …. !!!!!

Take it for a spin ….

A lil’ …. Mid Month Bonus, this month folks … !!!

A pre-cursor, to the, soon to be released, debut album,

” Virges’ World…. Music & Verse Vol. 1 ”

by Moi …..

So, contrary to some young headz’ beliefs,
Some of us older head’, still got some things to offer …..

So, for those who appreciate when Hip Hop was exactly that, and not all this….

New Age Crap …. !!!

Y’all should enjoy this ……

It may be released as a single, but sadly, due to some technical hitches, this cut did not make the final album ……

However, for a sample of what’s to come …… take a listen ….

” People Like You ” … who i’m talking about !!!

Changes … of scenery, and much much more … written by Big Virge 22/5/2016

Yes Yes folks,

Wow, are these posts becoming more and more infrequent !!!

Well, all for good reason, the system makers and the people who, blindly fall in line, are having quite the time currently !

Trump makes it to become the Republican Nominee for the US Presidency, seemingly now, with the backing of a CERTAIN, David Cameron ….. Any surprises there ???

Well, maybe just a slight one, as his new London Mayor, is none other than Muslim, Sadiq Khan !!!!!

Well, David’s announcement of, let’s say, a level of support for Donald, should make for some, interesting confrontations, with the new London Mayor, who, if i’m not mistaken, should be deemed as quite the security threat, according to all the Islamophobia talkers, thus I guess, the Brexit Klans, sorry, Clans … !!!!!

So, are you one of them ?

Well, good luck with having a Muslim Mayor, this should all make for very interesting times, unless of course, he is a turncoat, which should have Isis, Isil & their buddies plotting some kind of let’s say, disturbance, due to his appointment.

NOT … that i’m suggesting they should do any such thing of course !!!!

I’m just speculating a lil’ bit, if we are to believe the medias’ representation of the Islamic Threat, to peoples safety, across the globe, but especially, in Europe and the US of A right ???

Something doesn’t quite seem to be adding up, but these days, i’m realising, it’s just me !

We’ve recently had some sad losses, well, losses, depending on your point of view. I didn’t get the chance to meet Tony Cozier, the cricket commentator and voice of much that has related to, Radio or TV Commentary, on West Indies cricket, for basically all of my 40 odd years, and then some !!!!!

The one thing I wasn’t aware of, was that he had played for the infamously, racist club of Wanderers, which, leaves me thinking that, the fact that he was white, one can only hope, was not the reason he essentially became the main voice of West Indies Cricket !

Only those who truly knew him, will be able to answer that one. I just hope my thoughts are wrong, as he always seemed to be a decent enough fellow, but hey, White and Bajan, generally, is not such a positive mix, anyway, moving on …….

The biggest loss of the last few though, has to be Prince, say what you like about him, lil’ freak, illuminati puppet, or, whatever you will, but what a musical talent !!!!!

He was as good a live performer as i’ve, EVER seen !!!!!

…. and i’ve seen my fair share !!!

…. and he was just a phenomenally gifted musician, just from the volume of instruments he could play, and the legendary stories of his levels of productivity, let alone creativity, that would seemingly have him working in the studio, having just gigged for a night.

My enduring memory will be from his set of O2 performances, and seeing this diminutive figure come on stage at the afterparty, in a HOODED, Yellow Suit, icon of much, from sexuality, to fashion and sonic arrangement.

A Genius of the music art form, who is already, and i’m sure will be, missed for many many years to come, RIP Sir …. for the work you put in while you were on this earth, you deserve it !!!

Moving on, I have now entered my 46th year of life on earth, which I do, in no small form, give thanks for, however, as said, so much is changing in this world of ours, and as I have said on numerous occasions before, I don’t see too much of it as being progressive, however, this is probably, just me.

Thankfully, my vibes have brought me to the Bajan’ Countryside, in a lovely remote location, essentially, getting me further and further away from people, not that i’m anti-social or anything, but, have become happier to indulge in listening to peoples bullchit’, less and less frequently, as time goes on, because there’s only so much a man’s brain can take, when it operates on planes of logic, thought and common sense, which is clearly, NOT SO COMMON in the majority, sadly !!!

Waking up to a view of the East Coast of Barbados, and a landscape of green, that surrounds, as well as horses, cats, dogs, goats, chickens & a peacock, who happens to be quite the noisy fellow, is indeed, paradise like !!!!!

Especially when, feeling the sea breeze flow through the verandah, where I now do much of my chilling and contemplating, is indeed a blessing that year 46 of my life is glad to have as it’s beginning !

Thus, much that was important to me, is becoming less so, due to the peaceful vibes I now have, as well as the decent people who have embraced having me in their space, which I am very grateful to them for !!!

They are indeed, a rare breed, who are hard to find on this island, but they do exist, and, when receiving such levels of respect and warmth, one can only let peoples’ issues pass you by …..

A very cool place to be, mentally and spiritually, not to mention, the fresh fish that the locals know how to prep, tasty oh yes … VERY TASTY !!!!!

At no time in my life have I ever felt at this much peace, a beautiful thing, which is a change I am happy to embrace, and shall attempt to keep, for as long as is now possible !!!!!

The city and it’s hustle and bustle, is something i’m happy to forego, to make the countryside my home ……

Change …. in this case, is proving so far, to be the catalyst for rest,
and development of more than my bank balance, or, my personal goals, but simply, an aid to retaining my sanity and therefore, my peace of mind.

Stay blessed y’all, and remember, peace of mind is indeed, HARD TO FIND !!!!!

…. but, when you do get some …..

My advice is … Hold onto it for as long as you can !!!!!

The Virge, out of here for now ………

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.

Virge
