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

So guys what a hot few weeks it’s been eh ?

Wildfires, heatwaves, the world cup, and a variety of hot topics continually arising, that should be causing, at least the odd raised eyebrow, in terms of what is being revealed, or NOT, as the case may be.

So, this month’s little ditty will cover a few things, from last years Grenfell Fire, and the reaction to it, to the continual revelations of Hollywood abuses, and the reactions to them, that continue to heat up, as more and more female stars release information that will have a lot of producers and big movers, loosening their collars, due to the heat of allegations surfacing, and, resurfacing, from the past. Kathleen Turner being the latest to have certain people, looking over their shoulders, right about now.

As per usual, the Donald Trump show continues to simmer, until he gets his nose out of joint, over say, Lebron James, or NFL Players continuing to kneel, or, refusing to stand for the American Anthem before games. The issues of trade, and of course, his rather high profile meetings of recent, which should apparently, be cooling down tempers and the need for nuclear arms.

The Catholic Church, seemingly, abusing children just about everywhere they’ve been, with quite the level of protection, from members of their church to police not taking matters seriously, upon notification of child abuses, that have also been kept under the radar at some schools for decades, coming to light.

It’s definitely been a hot summer, but, not just due to the weather.

Even Tiger Woods has found his golf clubs hotting up, as he gets very close to returning to the major winners circle, at the PGA in St Louis.

The Zimbabwe election situation has caused tempers to hot up due to disputes over the legality of President Emmerson Mnangagwas’ election win. South African land appropriation, and a number of other issues in the African Continent.

The Ben Stokes case is hotting up, as did his temper clearly, as the story seems to keep changing regarding his position in the argument that led to him, as he claims, protecting a couple of gay guys from facing abuse …..

Hmmmm, something doesn’t quite add up about that whole scenario, much like the issue of race, as another white nationalist rally is heading to Washington, whilst racist graffiti has been sprayed on a house in Rochdale, where a black family were excited about moving in, so, that debate is still hot for those who aren’t part of the fraternity of famous black folks, who are now not so keen to raise the issue because of the green in their pockets, that has them feeling comfortable.

Well, as this poem suggests, we all could do with a cooling down, or maybe an exhibition of more coolness, when some of these issues confront us.

It’s been a hot summer for sure, but, unlike rain, some of these other hot issues may require some other cures.

Anyway, take a listen and enjoy, and stay cool folks !!!

Bless Up

” Know Your Place ” (Explicit) … written & performed by Big Virge

Okay folks, so another month and another load of very strange stuff going on !

The whole NFL kneeling situation has got very testy, with the President becoming quite colourful in his use of language, regarding the Kaepernick followers, who, in all honesty, do seem to have jumped on board his ship, a little late, in my opinion.

The increased rhetoric from a President who could clearly care less about, what opinions people have, from the press, to his own staff, and of course, people of colour, has, all of a sudden, even got players, outside of the NFL kneeling as well now, as if that’s gonna change the attitudes of patriots and racists alike …. I think not.

Hertha Berlin players took a knee today, in an apparent stand of ….. ???

Oops ….. ???

KNEE of solidarity with the NFL players, who are wanting a change of mentality, towards what exactly ?

Flag waving patriotism, National Anthems, Police Brutality, or the basic, racism that appears to be, a standard, for how people of colour are treated, generally by, fairer complexioned folk.

Now this, “People of Colour” Phrase, is one I cannot relate to, as firstly, as the old joke goes, nobody shows more colours than white folks when they show us shades of blue red, brown and ever other colour under the sun !!!!!

However, NOT all people of colour feel liks’, quite like BLACK People, but yet, Chloe Bennett, sorry, Wang, from Marvels Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, is now suggesting that the level of racism in Hollywood & the UNITED States, affected her ability to use her actual name !!!!!

All of these scenarios link themselves to the idea of yup, you guessed it ….

Knowing Ya RASSHOLE Place people !!!!!!

I mean, the NFL thing has got a bit silly now, and the players do have rather large amounts of money to enter, political arenas, if they want to don’t they ???

…. instead of facing head injuries, etcetera, that could leave them worse off than a police beating !!!!!

Well, maybe not, but …..

Black folks getting their noses out of joint, need to check themselves, and recognise their role in affecting change, in a world which is essentially, governed, by the spoils from systems that, support the sentiments of anthems, like those of the US and the UK ….. a la …

Rule Britannia ….

English folks will apparently, never ever be slaves eh ?

Yeah right !!!!

Similarly, the girls are on the charge again, Bill Cosby having, kinda sneaked off the radar because, OH NO, A Big WHITE, Hollywood producer has been harassing, multiple actresses, over an extensive period of time …. basically being, his time as an Exec … !!!!!!

Shock Horror …. SURELY NOT ….. !!!!!!

Okay so, here we go, us terrible men, and oh wait, no-one believes women when they claim sexual abuse, which is one of the reasons he has got away with his, ” Alleged “, deviant behaviour around women………

Okay so, that means we should believe them now ???

Calm yourselves folks, it’s just a question ?

Harsh as it may seem, how does a little man like Weinstein, get away with causing so much pain to these women, who, so many have looked up to, for what exactly ?

Well, before I get the feminists on my ass, you ladies need to think it through, and decide whether, so much sympathy should be being handed out to women who clearly, seemed to know their place before……

Keeping their mouths shut, for jobs and money, when maybe they should of been opening them as much as other parts of their body have been ….. to protect the sisterhood, that they claim outweighs any amount of pay ……. or job security …… ???

One to think on ….

Theresa May allegedly wants ignorance and intolerant individuals to, ” Know Their Place “, in Britain…….

Huh Hmm, the less said about that, the better ….. and of course, I have to mention the Girl Guides apparently becoming, Boy Scouts ???

…. which has clearly stirred some, considerable consternation ….

Now, other than Bruce ??? Caitlin ???

I dunno …… that Jenner Fella, being named woman of the year, last year, in certain peoples eyes …. this has to be one of the most absurd things of the last few months …. ?!?!?

The world has indeed gone, ” PC Crazy “, as well as completely irrational, on so many levels now !?!

Let the girls be girls, and the boys be boys eh ….

and on that note….

Come on people, like this piece says ….

” Know Your Place ” … !!!!!

” Hardcore ” … Prod by Strat Carter (Explicit)

Okay so, back to some music from Virges’ World ….

and somehow, when applying these words to the world at large, as it’s currently running ….

Well, Mr. Trump is …. AS EVER, going on in a Hardcore Manner, in terms of his language, and attacks, on everyone from Steph Curry, to Colin Kaepernick, and those who’ve suddenly realised that maybe just maybe, Colin has a point !

It’s easy to jump on the bandwagon when a man of The Presidents’ ilk, runs some Extraordinarily, INFLAMMATORY Language, and attitudes in the public domain, as North Korea’s leadership would certainly attest to.

As for the weather, well if you haven’t been paying attention, HARDCORE Damage has been wreaked by Hurricane after Hurricane, and yes, the region of the Caribbean is still in the midst of them, so, don’t think that it’s all good as we leave what is deemed as being, the Hurricane Season.

A little more humility and thought, rather than, hardcore reactions …..
might just be the order of the day, for a while, but in the meantime, My Hardcore vibes, with the handy work on production of Mr. Strat Carter, are a little less disturbing, if, none the less worthy of the title …..

Take a listen …….
