“April Who ? ” … written & performed by Big Virge

Yes Yes People !!!

Well, i’m back to sharing some thoughts on this crazy world of ours…..

…. from more political wrangles to, Nuclear tests, Brexit of course, the French Election, and North Korean moves to, President Trumps’, first 100 or so days in office, there has been much that could be deemed as foolish, of recent …….

So, as the month of April ends……

It struck me a while ago, that it seems a little unfair to give the burden of encompassing all the Fools on this earth, and their Foolish actions, one day of acknowledgment … being April the 1st ?!?

…. when it’s pretty clear now, that Foolishness runs 24/7, somewhere on this earth, within someones’ movements, actions or behaviour …..

So, this month’s little ditty gets into this day, and the fools of this earth, and suggests that April shouldn’t really have to carry the load, all on her own ……

So, take a listen…..
and don’t feel bad, if you deserve a fools cap …..

We’ve all been there at some time or another …..

“They Seem To Be Afraid ?” … written & performed by Big Virge

Well having today watched a good portion of President Trumps’ press conference, a month in, and after a rough couple of days, regarding conversations, Mike Flynn, Russia & matters surrounding national security ….

Blah Blah … Ha di Ha Blah …….

…. as well as, of course, the ongoing nonsense, that is Brexit ……

SM F’ing Head … ?!?

This would seem to be, as good a time as any, to share this poem, which was written a good few years ago, when freedom of speech for artists, was the topic in the UK, well, amongst the plethora of issues surrounding, basic freedoms, and indeed, as one reporter suggested to Mr. Trump today, the US 1st amendment, which, in no small part relates to the freedom of the press, it does seem, after watching him, and of course the usual ways that Politicians choose to basically, refuse to answer questions directly, even though they seem to have plenty to say, to the point where they, not only, rudely, interrupt !

They then have the cheek, to talk OVER, and in many instances, take over shows where they are merely, ” GUESTS “, rather than the host, one has to eventually ask yourself, what is it that they are SO AFRAID of hearing from ordinary people ?!?

….. and ……

in my case, artists who, coherently challenge, the rhetoric they love to push … ?!?

Especially, when it comes to the media, and, more importantly, the public, who they claim to serve, when they have the chance, and want to address ….

THE MESS … !!!!!!

…. as President Trump defined, what he’s walked into, in his speech today ….

Well, here are a few ideas and opinions as to what I think, particularly in this new age of political & social angst ….. has them somewhat reluctant, to let people outside of their web of WHATEVER ….. have their say ……

Don’t forget folks ….

Virges’ World … an album of spoken word and music, is available on various online platforms ……

Check it out, you might actually be surprised by what you find …..

Too-ings and Goings …. written by Big Virge 13/02/2017

Yes Yes people ……

So, as I sit here watching horses frolicking with each other, here in Barbados, much has been going on over the last couple of months ….

Well, first and foremostly, my debut album has finally dropped, production from Strat Carter & Anthony Lowhar, and that heavy, vocal lyricism, that is synonymous with the name Big Virge ….

The album is called VIRGES’ WORLD … and is available on an adundance of online platforms, but CD Baby is where it was released first ……

Hip Hop styled, but do not confuse what you hear as being that, nope, this is a SPOKEN WORD Album, just with different paces of speech, it’s Poetry.

So, don’t be dismissing, try and give the ish’ a listen, you might be surprised by what you find resides in this poets mind …..

Fresh, Real, Raw …. and built from my core values of honesty, straight talk, Phat beats, and yes, some offensive lyrics, to those who cannot work with Real Talk…..

….. which leads me to Brexit’ and The Trumpster’……

Well, having just returned from a London trip, I can safely say that Brexit has enforced the British drive to create themselves, a breed of Modern Slave, who clearly are only brave, behind polling cards, that define what resides in their hearts, which would seem to be to conform and follow the political whatevers…. ??? …. who seem to be doing, quite nicely thank you, regardless of what Brexit’ has done to the UK’s economy, and the general way that the country runs.

Movements towards a cashless society, less general dealings with people, and more with computers, and systems driven by technology ……

However, with all this tech, to drive in London, has become the complete opposite of what it once was …. Now you have cameras tracking your every move, 20 mile an hour speed limits, in areas once free for the brave to drive at speed, for fun, or simply to get where you needed to, if your were running a little late ….

Work home work, for most …. chasing that pound, even though it doesn’t get you far, unless you’ve got plenty of them, right about now !!!!!

In the space of a few months, the country has changed dramatically, and as a friend suggested to me, in basically 5 years, the populous of London alone, would seem to have doubled !!!!!

Parking is a complete nightmare, and costs an arm and a leg, with restrictions in place, here, there and everywhere ….. !!!!!

It’s pretty crazy, and looks like being a rough old ride, until this Brexit situation gets resolved !

Mainly because of the apparent cost of being the first to start, what may be a trend of countries exiting, what many claim to be a bureaucratic nightmare, being the EU, and it’s money train of freeloading MP’s & MEP’s, who apparently, have been getting fed like fat cats, for quite some time now !!!!

Figures in the Billions, being thrown around, possibly up to 600 Billion, being touted as the cost for Britain’s departure from the EU !!!

Well, who knows, or really cares …. Brexit’ voters ….. ???

Well, i’d say not, when looking at the basic costs of living in the UK right about now !!!!!

Anyways, it is what it is, but America, well, Donald has started as he suggested he would, creating mayhem, executive orders, that are being revoked by the legal system, and just like England, creating difficulties and concerns for companies, whose employees now, are not sure whether they are coming or going, it’s all good fun ….

Well, maybe not fun, but it certainly is a time of much change and as a friend said to me recently, there is a DISTINCT, change in the wind, and time will definitively tell, where it is, the world is now heading, and if the new US Presidents’ initial movements are anything to go by, the blasé attitudes that many have chosen to exhibit, and live by in recent times, are about to be turned upside down …… or are they ???

Well, Mr. Trump has already seen that he can be stumped by those who surround him, as in, congress, the senate, and the same people who seemed to have given him the job, who, when they rally together, are a force that even he, has to respect and bow to, well so far at least …..

This is all, simple proof of the fact that these Presidents are merely puppets for the world to focus on, while the agendas that have long since been discussed as the next wave of change, are being initiated and mobilised …..

Brexit’ and Trump, are diversions for bigger things to be put into place, in my opinion, like the rise of nationalism, from Europe to the US, and the NOT SO, United, United Kingdom … LMAOL

….. and as I read yesterday, South Africas’ ANC, and rival political factions, like the EFF (Economic Freedom Fighters), are far from finding ways to agree to disagree. There was fighting in the room, as Jacob Zuma attempted to give his, ” State of The Nation ” speech.

Well, how appropriate a title, the, ” State of affairs “, over there, may well be a pre-cursor for much that will occur over the next 18 months or so !!!

Let’s hope not, but hope, like Mr. Obamas … ” Change ” … would seem to have been a ruse, to make people believe that the Political Process, could actually step away from scandal, corruption and war …. and work for the benefit of the masses ….

If Obama did that for you, well, I think you need to wash the sleep out of your eyes and recognise that, as much as we have a larger number of people who are perhaps, less uncomfortable with integration and the rising of one nation, the nationalists like Mr. Trump, and his friends, like Theresa May from the UK, are not about to let that become a trend that will work for Twitter or any other media platform that feeds the masses …..

So indeed, it shall be an interesting 2017, with a great many more ……

Too-ing’s & Goings …….

And Now, the Fun Times Begin…. written by Big Virge … 10/11/2016

So, as expected, a week of upsets and surprises has now been completed by Donald J Trump, winning the US Election over Hilary Clinton … !!!!!

So, the fun times begin ….

Orrrrrrrrr …. NOT …. ?!!!?

…. dependent upon, how much media rhetoric you’ve bought into, or again, NOT, as the case may be ….

So, having watched BBC Coverage of most of the results coming in, and listening to the comments being dropped by political commentators, and financial experts, it was immediately evident, that, obviously, the black guests who were, Clinton supporters, were stuck in some bubble, of, ” Clinton Love “, without Monica Lewinsky … LOL …

… that had them in some delusional frame of mind, regarding the results, especially after a relatively fast start for Hilary in quite a few states, but as the night wore on, a lot of talk was suddenly backtracking, and looking for reasons as to why the landslide, that, it actually became, came to pass ….

Now I use the term, landslide, loosely, as it was a matter of decimal percentage points in Key sates like Florida, Trayvon country, which was quite interesting, as they had 99% of the vote in for quite some time with Trump in front, before they’d confirm that the projection had him ACTUALLY, winning … ???

…. which had me thinking, rigging could so easily be done in Elections.

Emily Maitlis, Andrew Neil and others were pontificating, giving us Historical references, to Reagan and further back, but none could, ” Apparently “, quite believe what was happening …..

Well, hate to bust their white bubbles, but hey, YEAH, ” White America “, confirmed their wish I think, to see, Black Lives Matter ideals, diminished, and more importantly, to have a white face back in power, who actually, has been a breath of fresh air, compared to the calm, calculating rhetoric of another Democrat, who clearly does not have her finger on the pulse of Americas psyche, much like, her predecessor !

Or … The Pre-Election Polls … !?!

… as the polls showed leanings towards a Clinton win, pretty much, up to polling day, especially after the FBI suddenly dropped their investigation into her emails …. yet AGAIN … YAWN …. !!!!!

… only for it to be, suddenly changed … ???

… by the end of the night.

A shift, which allies itself to the comment that was made by one of the pundits, who stated that polling may now become obsolete, because it had become clear that what many people said, may not quite have been reflective of their REAL FEELINGS, about Donald Trump.

Forked-tongue for dinner anyone … ???

It really has been laughable, how the apparent, ” Liberals ” … which, may well become a name synonymous with, covert racists, continued to try to explain how this is … NOT … middle America !

Whatever they or that … is … ???

According to them, it’s working class, ” Urban “, country folk, who have been swayed by Mr. Trumps message, indeed, this may well be true, but something tells me that more … Again, ” Apparently “, moderate thinkers, of ALL colours, ended up feeling as though Donald was their only hope, well …

The Empire may well have just … Struck Back … !!!!!

…. in ways that they, may not be able to conceptualise, or recognise, as time goes by, but, for now, there is a massive part of Americas’ Electorate, who are quite happy to see, a man labelled as a .. Bigot, Sexist, Groper, and, Highly Volatile individual, take the reins of power for the Western, Free World …

Hmmmm … is this 2016 or 1916 ???

Well, either way, things have changed, but remain the same, the name Trump, will now not only be synonymous with Plazas, Hotels & Skyscrapers, but with Whitehouse papers, and deeds now …..

Scared anyone … ???

Well, i’ve seen people now talk all sorts of things in just a couple of days, the first one, conveniently being, 9/11 2016 …….

Do any of you believe in … Coincidence ???

Anyway, conspiracy theories aside, could the vote have been rigged ???

Well, Donald did warn everyone, but he just didn’t say, that, it may well have long since been rigged for HIM … !!!!!

Anywho’ … moving on, NAACP members were spoken to, white collar workers, Evangelists and countless others, from senior, former FBI people, to, Latinos, who seemed quite happy to have got one of them in congress ….

Small steps eh, but realistically, beyond the public, who clearly, in many cases, lied to the pollsters, about who they were REALLY, gonna vote for !

There were, other, curve balls thrown into the mix, from a massive reduction, apparently, in black voter turnout, to the composition of who voted for who …..

Well, amazingly …..

AGAIN …..

Apparently, lots of white women voted for Donald, as did white males, however, the younger whites, and of course, sons and daughters of immigrants, seemed less inclined to fall in line with Mr. Trump.

Statistics that should not shock, but, should be taken note of …. The idea that, only rednecks from the urban areas of America are Trumps supporters, have now been scuppered, once and for all.

In America now, it must be quite an interesting environment to be in, as one of the panelists proved, when asked who she voted for, there will, i’m sure, be many who will never show that their allegiance was to this, much maligned man, who actually, when you compare him to say Palin or McCain, is probably, on par with, if, not so bad right … ???

Well, I like Trump, and am glad he has won, however, NOT, for the reasons you might think though, I like the fact that he can be labelled as things without reservation, as opposed to past Presidents, who like, Nixon & Clinton, were deemed to be squeaky clean, until found out, and proven otherwise, indeed, where’s the dirt on BO ?!?

Well, I guess his initials are where that lies …. Ha Ha ….

… and …

What of Jay & Queen Bey, and even Mary J … will they have been singing and rapping for Mrs. Clinton last night eh … ???

Probably not, but one thing they’ll be remembered for, is their support for The LOSER … that she is … !!!!!!

….. whose name will now go down as, TWICE, trying but failing, to secure a place alongside Bills’ name, in the list of US Presidents.

So, do Black Lives Matter now ?!?

… or, have they now been proven, in the majority of cases to be clowns, who continue to be CLOWNED !!!!

and prove themselves to be, complicit with, providing a shield for what AMERICA, REALLY IS …. A country that, actually, has NO … African Americans, they disgrace the name Africa, by placing America next to it … and that;s my view.

Much like these terms, Afro-Caribbean, etcetera etcetera, the coon fest, has reached new heights, it would seem, in 2016 …..

Give them some, small piece of status, fame, money, and a place alongside high profile whites, and their African …. becomes redundant, seemingly, very quickly …..

Colin Kaepernick’ has brought this subject to the fore, as has this election, in terms of …. who the, lets’ say, black people are…. who have no shame in supporting the system that now has given them, in some cases, some very nice chains, to inscribe their names upon, like good little slaves …..

Yeah I said it, fuck it, what they gonna do, call Trump to sort me out … !?!

Good Luck with THAT … !!!!!!

They are all over the place, from Facebook to social media platforms all over the internet, and, further afield ……

So, who will ACTUALLY, leave America now, and who will stay eh … ???

I’m sure a good few were joking, but, to think that famous people are claiming to be so incensed, by the idea of being in an America run by Trump, that they will go to Spain, Canada and elsewhere ….. is quite laughable ….. !!!

So, Obamas’ America, and the America that most have grown up in, benefited from, and shown love for, wasn’t so bad then ….. ?!?!?

YET …..

It’s the SAME AMERICA, that has produced a Trump President in 2016, once again …. NOT …. 1916, but 2016 …. ?!?

The Hypocrites are gonna get found out now, the cash cow that fed them, is now, all of a sudden, in trouble ???

The double standards, and, two faced nature of quite a number of American people, can no longer be seen as people complaining for … NO REASON …

Names like Giulianii, will now return to mainstream politics, and positions of considerable influence, the same Mayor Giuliani, who faced no such backlash from Celebs’, when it came to policies he implemented, that essentially, would appear to be ones, that his pal, Donald, would stand by, as being effective and positive policies, in terms of New Yorks’ and Americas’, National security …..

Hmmmm …..

Well, today i’ve read and seen stories about, physical and, verbal abuse, from college students to elderly white Americans, who are doing nothing more than releasing, that which we all have been made to believe, has been diminished in the White, American Psyche …..

Errrr …. WRONG …. !!!

As the saying goes, if you’re on a long straight road, and you get off your bus, when it no longer is in view, does it just disappear, well, this ain’t Hollywood, so, NO … Mo’ Fo’s ….. NO ….. !!!

The Co-insequential sequence of events should not be disconnected to England and Brexit, both have bred changes of leader, and both have merely reminded, the wise heads among us, of the facts, while the rest, who were walking around feeling good, because their delusions fed them ideals of equality, are now crying FOUL, when there is NO …. Foghorn Leghorn in view ….. !!!!!

If you wanted change, maybe you should of made some cash, so that you’d have some now, rather than buying the ….

Oh, the worlds moving forward, because Obama gained power, and promised some ….

Well, they’ve got some now !!!!!

and before people start jumping on Baracks’ back,

He … DIDN’T ….

…. actually say, when the change would come, but now it has, well, it’s time to take a stance, and make sure you stand alongside those, who TRULY, have your back, before you face the type of racism, or, economic woes, that will NOT BE ….

…. something that the… ” Illuminati ” … whatever …. !!!!

…. or, as I now prefer, Hierarchy of Donald and his buddies, will be suffering, due to, not only the colour, and abundance of their money, but also, it would seem now, because of the colour of their skin …..

and hence, for the rest of us ….

It’s clear that now, and for the next few ….

The Fun Times … Begin ………………………… !!!!!

“Brutal” … A Poem written & performed by Big Virge

Okay people, so, as a follow up to my last post ….

Here’s proof that people, in fact, sadly, mostly those claiming to be artists, are PUSSIES … !!!!!

YUP …. I said it ….

PUSSIES … !!!!!

They are normally quick to run for cover, when heads speak freely about the world and it’s woes, or better still, people and their willingness to be penned in like sheep !!!

It’s incredible how they, and obviously, those who claim to appreciate, freedom of expression and artistry, are quick to distance themselves from anything that is remotely, anti-establishment …..

or ….

Art that has, NOT BEEN DONE, for people to say that … “They Love It !”

or, even worse still …..

because it’ll get them a pay cheque ….

These are the same fuck-holes, who are quick to claim that they …

” Keep It Real ” … with their art ?

Hmmm …. What a CROCK !!!

Imma’ hit that, ” Keep It Real ” … subject, down the line, but, as said in my two previous posts …

If Donald Trump can wantonly, speak on things in such an unabashed fashion, and not have to deal with the ….

“Expression Police” … as it were …

…. who want to restrict, and deny exposure, to the type of artistry, that this kind of piece represents, one where frank and honest assessments are expressed, that can actually be validated, rather than debated, and then dismissed as some kind of conspiratorial nonsense …..

Then … SO CAN I … !!!!!

So, once again ….

Pussholes’ …..
should leave this alone … !!!!!!

The rest of you, well, I hope you pay close attention to what you hear, and pass this on to those who you know, can deal with talk that is REAL !!!!!

…. because ….

compared to Trump, Cameron & the rest of their ilk of Political Figureheads ….

These words are actually, contrary to the title,

FAaaaaaaaaaaRRRRRRRRRR ……… from being …….

BRUTAL …….

Is it …
” Politically Incorrect ” … ?

“Is It Such A Crime ?” … A Poem written by Big Virge 26/3/2006

Is it … ” Such a Crime ” … ?
to … ” Speak Your Mind ” … ?

Because ….

it … Seems to be …
if you’re … NOT WHITE …

I hear this, said …
So Many … times … !!!

“Virge, you scare folks !
with words you rhyme !”

and that’s … NO JOKE … !!!

but … words I … “Quote” …
are … NOT … The Type … !!!

to … ” Start A Fight ” … !!! …

but may … ” Unsettle ” … ?!?
Those who … ” Settle ” …
to … “hide” … behind …
A … “LIE FILLED” … life … !!!

Can Someone … DEFINE … ?
Why it’s …. ” Such A Crime ” …. ?
to ….. ” Criticize ” ……
…. ” Political ” …. types …. !?!

In times like … THESE …

” FREEDOM ” … of … SPEECH …
is … NEEDED … just like poetry … !!!

if we’re to … ” Ease ‘ …
” Pain and Misery ” … !!! …
and crimes of … More …

… FATAL DESIGNS … !!!!!

“Murders” … “Rapes” … !!!
Crimes … based on … Race … !!!
and Crimes … Inclined …
To Keep … ” The Masses ” …

…………. “blind” ………….

Like Those … in … ” Folds ” …
who make ….. Mistakes …..

Do THEY … ” Pay A Toll ” … ?
for … CASH … THEY TAKE …

” Mistakes ” …
THEY SAY …… !!!

That …..
Pay for … ” Homes ” … ?!?

“It was merely, a loan,
from a chap I know !
No more questions now,
i’ve got to go !!!”

“A chap you know ?!?
can’t we know his name !?!”

“Are you insane ?
is it such a crime ?
for you to find,
that, friends of mine,
help out, in times
of financial strain !?!”

“Of course not sir !
but don’t divert,
what is his name ?
and did he donate ?
to your friends campaign ?
Need I ask you again !?!
the question is
what is his name ???
Let me make it plain !
Are you quite sure
he hasn’t bought
A Peerage, and,
is now a lord ?”

“I will not answer
any more ! What
do you take, politicians for ?
Anyone would think,
our dealings, stink !”

“Well, no more than
a poor street whore
is it such a crime
to want to know more ?”

Could this be why
Government guidelines
are trying to stem
peoples’ questions !?!

If …..
Free Speech … ” Ends ” …

What’ll happen to … THEM … ???
and ……. ALL THEIR …….
” Pre-Planned ” … arguments … ?!?

It seems that … THEY …

Isn’t that … A Crime … !???!

It would seem … NOT … !!!

So …..
How can it be a … ” Crime ” …
to …. ” Speak Your Mind ” …. ?!?

Especially when ….
You’re Proven … RIGHT … !!!

I find this … ATTITUDE …
at …. ” Poetry Nights ” …. ?!?

if you speak about … ” Your Life ” …

Through words you write ….

If you are … WHITE …
and they make folks …

…….. SMILE …….. !!!

But …..
if you’re … BLACK …

On Racists … or …
On … Western Plans …

You’re treated like …
An ….. ALIEN …… !!!!!

It must be … A Crime …
to be a ….. BLACK MAN ….. !???!

Especially when ….
you have … A MIND … !!!!!

Inclined to … WRITE …
” Poetic Rhymes ” …

People and Changes … written by Big Virge 24/10/2013

Yes Yes … Motha Funkstas’ …..

Been a while, as per usual now, because much like what is being spoken about by many these days, including, Brand & Paxman seemingly !?!

I am getting older…… aaahhhhh …… LOL

…. and, numbed to much that the people of the world, now, seem to be falling in line with, be it, rhetoric about political movements, coming from the multitude of blood suckers in governments around the globe, from everybody’s friend B.O. !!!!

…. to, Cameron, to, our own Freundel, here in Bim, to, pretty much everything and anything that refers to monetary issues, causing pressures that are now hitting, an abundance of the general populous.

Until it happens to you eh folks ???

Until wars of … National, or, street varieties, get close to your door, like robberies, and criminal boldness, that, would once of been seen as, untenable, even by criminals, back in the day, right !?!

There are many people who I have met in this life, who have all the right TALK, but, only when someone, who is, let’s say, of their ilk, speaks on it publicly, and, causes a stir.

However, the cowardice in some is becoming evident, as they are now jumping on, whichever issue, suits their position, by this, I mean ….

Choosing to side with something, that, stops them from having to think or explain how they have been, happy to be party to, or, in other words, pleading ignorance to things, which, they knew in their hearts, didn’t sit right with them, but, somehow, they stood by, regardless of their doubts about their actions …..

Hmmmm ….. ???

I would highly recommend, the documentary on Killer Whales, called, ” Blackfish “, as a prime example, having recently watched it.

The idea that, keepers, fishermen, and people who run places like Seaworld, in Orlando, had the animals best interests at hearts, is truly astounding !!!!!

I’ve said it before about, white folks and their animals/pets, and it is never far from my mind, when I see people kissing their dogs, that, previously had their mouths, on their ball sack or privates !!!!!

Eeeeeeeuuuuuwwwwww !!!!!!

…. it is incredible to me …. !!!!!!

YES … they have less, to, no inclination to rob or shoot your ass, but, there has to be some sense of acknowledgement, that, they are ANIMALS, NOT …. Human Beings, who, could well do with a sense of the … ” Love ” … on a simply, human level.

I have been very fortunate, after an iffy period here in Bim, to have found some, incredibly cool people to vibe with, reason with, and share a sense of human love with, and NO, I ain’t talking bout no f’ing gyal, on some bullchit, love tip, cos my dick is getting licked !!!!!

I’m talking about that brotherly and sisterly love, that comes from reasoning about things, that are much more basic, than, the planet and it’s environment, that, has it’s own, VERY POWERFUL, ecosystem, that, no amount of recycling is gonna change, due to it’s ability, beyond our cognitive powers, to adapt and find a way to move forward !!!!

Things like, basic inequalities, such as poverty, a lack of respect and love for each other, regardless of sex, colour, or, deviant traits, and simply, an acceptance of truth in how we are able to communicate.

This week has availed so much, in terms of rhetoric within people, some are baying for blood, having dipped their feet in with the butchers of the arts, only to find them, willing to cull the purer forms of artistic expression, having previously claimed, that it was perfect ???

Others have been referring to Barbados as, “Third World”, because of governance, that has a heritage, based upon, “First World Teachings”.

Hmmmmm ….. did I say …. “First World” ….. ???

So, where the fuck is … ” The Second World ” ???
…. as a friend just asked me ?!?

It truly is amazing, the level of arrogance some people have regarding this world, due to whatever ideals they were raised upon, which are now being, ” SHATTERED “, by the information super-highway, which isn’t quite as accepting of keeping “ish”, hidden.

Pandoras Box indeed, the internet may be …. !?!

Talking of shattered, I must give a shout out to a certain, ” Steve McQueen “.

NO …. not the dead one, who played me of course, LOL, Virgil Hiltz, in, “The Great Escape”, so many moons ago, but, the one I went to school with !!!!

Yeah, i’m name dropping now …. but, in all seriousness, Turner Prize Winner, and now, award winning film maker, Steve McQueen, who seems to be alive and well, for stirring up the issue of slavery, without, Tarantino Visions, with his new film, 12 Years a Slave, based on the true story, of a once free, black man, Solomon Northup, who, ended up being a slave, seemingly, for, 12 years !!!!!

This film has clearly brought the discussion of what has been, in essence, something of a model, for, not just Killer Whales, but, nowadays, for where the leaders of the world seem to want this world to be !?!

It’s all relative, but, as per a comment Mr. McQueen made in a recent interview, with Tom Brook, of the beeb, where he intimated that, if it wash’t for the system, he wouldn’t be where he is today ….

… whether that is true or not, I wish him all the best with the film as it races towards getting some Oscars, the way people are talking.

Anyhow, is the revolution coming, as per Russell Brands’, Paxman interview, and if so, how much is he gonna earn from it ???

Just kidding, but, the realities of how people are dealing with the changes that, are being brought to the fore, in terms of, the negative elements, should not be washed away as, being about the environment or political upheaval.

Politics, as it stands, is a horse that needs flogging !!!!!

As do the people who seem to be suggesting that we stand by it, until it provides the change that the world and it’s people needs, as if politicians care about the needs of anyone beyond themselves, and their, ” Elite Club “.

What a f’ing joke it has now become, in the belly of the beast, being England, when, Russell Brand is the man calling for the … ” Revolution “, to begin !!!!!

On that note, i’ll end for now, but leave you with this cool piece of art to check out, if you haven’t, Christopher Walken is in a film called, ” The Power of Few “, which has a stellar performance from a young lady called, Tione Johnson ….

No massive reviews that rave about it’s quality, because it’s a lil bit, ” Out There “, at times, but, gets to a very interesting, revolutionary ending …..
as it were ….

One that might help us, more than, all this rhetoric about, saving the environment first ……

I say, NO, adamantly to such talk … !!!!!

…. and say, fix people, if we can do such a thing, first, and the rest should, if we do it properly, fall into place …..

Don’t get caught up people … !!!!!

We are a … LONG WAY … from the sort of revolution, I believe, we really need …..

…. which involves, these three words.

Equality, Peace & Unity !!!

One love y’all …..

The Virge.
