“Sick” … Written & Performed by Big Virge

Yes Yes Peoples’ ….

So what’s cracking’ …

Well, Serena’s cool, at the recent US Open Final, and what a furore this has created, as well as some rather offensive artistic offerings, in Australia !!!

Surprised, NO …

Sickened, well a little, these days it takes a lot to actually sicken me.

I recently saw Sicario 2, and without spoiling it for those yet to see it, expect some visual sickness, reflective of the issues surrounding control, and movements around the Mexico / US Border.

So much stuff going on that could sicken stomachs, that it’s amazing to see that people just carry on, without too much thought about the sick things that are happening in this world of ours.

So, rather than select a thousand instances, the last couple of things i’ll touch on are the story of a 12 year old who went into his school in Iowa, intent on shooting a teacher, IN THE FACE, no less !!! Only to find that the gun’s safety was still on !!!!!

THAT …. in Iowa …. !!!!

…. while, in the UK, Celebrity Big Brother House, a Certain, Roxanne Pallett, pulled some, sick idea of an attempt to define male harassment, when basically, fully embellishing what was a simple moment of well, ” Playfulness “, from one of her male housemates, only for it to blow up in her face, because in this instance, everything was captured for the world to see.

#MeToo eh girls … ???

Well, as Ms. Pallett has found out, you better be telling THE TRUTH about Male Abuse !

NOT ….

Your Version of events, as this incident has shown all of us who have seen the recent flood of accusations of male abuse, unsurprisingly, come from the whole Hollywood fraternity, from essentially nowhere, to not necessarily jump to every accusers defence, quite as speedily as many have been doing !!!

My point being, that with such a SERIOUS Thing as physical abuses of women being essentially ABUSED, by this lil’ … ” Actress ” … just goes to show that the sickness of abuse isn’t as straightforward as that of the abuser, immediately being labelled as being a nasty piece of work !

Sometimes, those claiming these, same abuses, are even worse, because lying about something that affects so many women, who consistently say that it’s an INCREDIBLY DIFFICULT thing to bring to peoples attention, is indeed pretty sick in my opinion !!!

As said, the world is filled with much worse things, but essentially, we live in a pretty sick period of human existence !!!

and sometimes, just sometimes, that sickness comes out in artists vision of the world that we live in …

So, with no further ado, written a while ago, and i’m not sure whether I feel any better or worse about the state of things, but, know that these words will always sicken, because they will always reflect some part of the world we live in.

The Internet & it’s … “THREADS” … written by Big Virge 1/7/2013

Yes Yes Motha Suckas’ … !!!

What’s the word … ?!?

Well, as I am struggling to get to explain about my Philly diaries, i’ll use a … Internet Thread … I saw today, that asks what the Brits think of Americans ???

As most of the people on the thread were of Irish/British descent, hardly seemed worth adding to the fucking nonsensical rhetoric being spouted, but, it has lead to me posting a lil’ more, about Philly, in amongst other things, tonight.

Firstly, Big Up to my new, Fav female tennis player, mostly because of my old man lust for a nice young fit girl, who happens to be a pretty good tennis player, Ms. Sabine Lisicki, who, if she stays healthy, focussed & positive, may well be on her way to a Wimbledon title, YOU GO GIRL !!!

Having beaten the probable favourite, Serena Williams, in 3 today, I sense that this is her chance to grab the spotlight after what has clearly been a very difficult couple of years, having suffered some pretty horrid setbacks, injury wise. Always smiling, and seemingly, always happy to have the opportunity to do, one of the things she loves, i’m down !

…. and saying, Go Get That Trophy Girl !!!

…. of Polish & German roots, now a U.S. resident, if I was twenty years younger and around tennis circuits, oh yes, those legs …. anyway, I digress !!!

Good luck for the rest of the tourney Sabine !!!!

So, origins, and who likes and doesn’t like …. who …. ???

Well, Philadelphia, The City of Brotherly Love, or, is that Shuv, cha, well, whatever it is, I do think that the element of race & it’s levels of division are clear for anyone with, “Open Eyes”, to see !!!

The Yankee Doodles are far from being, as advanced with it all, as, Mr. Obama’s presidency suggests, subtle, nigger references from bar managers & their black staff, YES, F’ing Black staff, whose comments were in reference to me, indicate a subversive level of racist mentalities, that run without any kind of discussion or challenge, from, i’m sad to say, all sides, but, most definitely, in places like the very lovely, and quite plush, Radisson, down there in central Philly, around what, 17th street.

Philadelphia is a city with much history, that again, draws back to England, Charles II, and of course, William Penn, famed for Penns’ landing, and of course, Pennsylvania State right !

Well, there is proof, that, whether the English are looking at Americans, or, Visa Versa, aren’t all you the same F’ing people !?!

Oh, but ofcourse, as one white dude tried to tell me in a bar, every black baseball player, born in the U.S., is, American, well, yes that’s true, but, as I explained to him, or tried to, are they not of another origin, like say, Africa ???

… or, wherever they were transported from to be the offspring of parents, residing in the U.S., at their time of birth ???

Didn’t go down so well, especially when he insisted on showing me, I guess, in his own way, how far Philadelphia has come, due to being the last Baseball team, apparently, to use black players, to being the team famed for being where, Jackie Robinson gained much of his fame, as the new movie, “42”, will hopefully show.

…. haven’t seen it yet, but, am interested, as the monument in honour of the black leagues in Philly, is in a very small corner of a park, in a not-so-nice, part of town.

So, the slavery elements, and the historic nature of Philly, well, German Town, Dutch influxes, and of course, The Irish, en masse, have many memorials, statues, and houses preserved, to ensure that their stamp is firmly imprinted on any visitors passport as it were.

Surprised … ???

…. nah … but, in terms of it’s progressive attitude towards race relations, errrm, well, having had a coach ride in Old Town/City, I would have to say that when an Irish guy can tell me that he isn’t so sure about the whole, “Inter-Racial”, thing, but, in the same breath, can tell me how, “Even I find myself thinking on the train, that some black ass would be worth a look”, as it were, one has to wonder how far we have to go !!! Let alone, have we come ?!?

The area of Philly, that has some kind of homage to what the slaves went through, would hardly constitute, in my mind, the level of acknowledgement & recognition of suffering, that, our forefathers/mothers, went through, as black people, but hey, it was the … ” Old Days” … right, ain’t nothing to be carrying a chip about !!!!!

Maybe, if you don’t give a shit about anything other than the, “Bling”, you sporting, or, the amount of pussy/dick, that you can get of different types, regardless of the reasons why it’s becoming available now !!!

Well, the judgements continue, and I was clearly, a most intriguing attraction for the Radisson bar faithful …… for a lot of, seemingly, fear & insecurity driven, reasons, but hey, I have no issue causing a lil’, “Positive Disruption”, unlike the human church mouses running about town, serving the, well to do, mainly white folks, who, owned I believe, 99 of the 100 private condos up in that bitch !!!!!

The other was, YES, owned by black folks, well, at least we’re getting up there right ???

Hmmmm, how bad or good a sign that is, i’m not sure, when, they are mostly welcomed by black faces, who are still, in my view, highly subservient to them.

Now don’t get me wrong, I met a … “Black Woman !”, who showed me a level of that dignified attitude towards her job, regardless of who she would greet and meet, there was a fire that she possessed, that I will eternally be grateful to have felt, so, much love and respect goes to … Ms. Francine !!!

Yes … Ms. Francine !!!!!

Well, i’d happily of had her as my, Miss Daisy, just to be around a black woman, with such, inner fortitude, as I felt from speaking with her, and sharing some of my art with ….

Yes, Ms. Francine, I am still doing it and will always remember your words of encouragement, a la, Lady Gaga, of all people, but, we shall always know why …… !!!!!

Okay, on that note, i’ll leave y’all hanging …..

I have yet to get into the Nitty Gritty of Philly, but, these days, it’s a very free flow that i’m rolling with, as, so much crazy ish is going on all over this world of ours …..

Keep strong people, keep the faith and one thing I will say today …..

Stand up for what you believe in, it is, and will be scary, don’t doubt it, but, if your faith holds righteous values, you will prosper, even if, it doesn’t seem like it, initially ….

Don’t follow, for followings sake, set your trend/standard, and stick to it …..

Money can only do so much for you, your soul cannot be fed by it ….

Bless up, and yes, share that love …..

and cut out all this, English, American, whoever, Stuff ….

…. and accept the path to rising above, and seeing yourself and the rest of us all, as just being ….

“Human”.

One Love ….

Big V
