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 so, the Fukry’ begins … written by Big Virge 23/11/2015

So, off on my travels to, far away lands, but wait ….

Oh Noooooo …. Paris attacks and the Terrorism Hoopla, begins …. !!!!!

Well, I am now able to edit what I started to write in November, due to an enormity of media rhetoric about the terrorism of differing kinds, in Paris, Gatwick, Colorado, San Bernardino, Leytonstone, in London, and, of course, the Presidential Election campaign for 2016, with DT …. The Trumpster’, running his gums about anything and everything, to garner attention, and I dare say, to stir up controversy, that will not only garner him support, but also, some vitriol, that will keep his name in the news, which i’m sure, in his mind, will aid his campaign to run America ….

…. but …. before all that

After plane parking issues in Bim’, it seems that The USA, in this case, Miami, is holding landed planes, for no apparent reason ???

One has to wonder whether this is due to the recent, Paris Situation ?

Well, it’s hard to believe that it isn’t, in some way, due to recent events across the water !?!

I had booked my trip essentially, some time before the bombing, and wouldn’t of changed my plans because of it, but, here is where the effects of said, ” Paris Incident ” …. would seem to be, already taking their toll on the … Oh So Righteous …. US of A !!!!!

God blessed right ?!?

Well obviously, not so much that visitors can get in and out of the airport they land in, without delays, where little to nothing is conveyed to passengers, as to why ?!?

Of course, Miami, is a good spot for illegals to try coming into America, but for crying out loud !!!!!

If the country is God Blessed, then surely they shouldn’t be so worried about a few illegals, who, with the Holy blessing, that America has in it’s back pocket, would surely not be given such a blessing, if they were terrorists right ???

I’m being trite !!!!

Innocent people are dying, excuse me, being terrorised, murdered & killed …. !!!!!

Hmmm … sound like anything that has been going on in America, to seemingly, a pre-dominance of black folks, at the hands of Government backed, gun tooting police, who, if they can’t shoot ya, just choke men to death !!!!!!

Okay, some who were doing things they maybe, shouldn’t of been, but hey, these things happen everyday right, from street corners to the corridors of power right …. ???

Alright then, moving on ……

If … Intelligence, is supposedly going to high alert levels, well,
bloody well act like it … !!! … and let people know what’s going on !!!!!

No word from the captain, just that we’re being held due to there being, no space for our plane to park at the gate that should of been free !!!!

Hmmmm …. funny how the same issue seems to have been on repeat for the flights ahead of us !!!!!

As for the usual line of ..,. ” Not wanting to panic people … “, well, it certainly doesn’t stop, media outlets from doing it, as soon as any form of ” apparent ” …. attack, is made by, ” Islamic Fundamentalists “, even if the facts have not been, fully established ?!?

It’s Friday night and I for one, for a change, would really like to get to customs, so that I can enjoy my stop in Miami !!!!!

Well finally, some NINETY minutes after arriving, it seems that, all is well, and we are allowed off, however, it is clear that quite a few passengers have been delayed long enough for them to have missed their connecting flights, one of whom, happened to be, Ex- West Indies, International Cricketer, Gordon Greenidge !!!!!

… who happened to be sitting, a couple of rows in front of me !!!

I had to look at him a few times before recognising that it was one of my childhood heroes, who was traveling on the same flight !

Unassuming, and clearly not wishing to be noticed, I waited until we crossed paths in the baggage hall, to ask the question, and then get a photo, which he was thankfully, willing to do, even if somewhat reluctantly !

He was far from talkative but I respected the fact that he wanted it that way, and had to respect the fact that he was probably pissed at missing his flight to Texas !!!

Anyway, off to get my shuttle and my first, of quite a few hotels on this extensive trip to the other side of the world …… and finally, first destination reached, it was my time to see what Miami has to offer !!!!!

More instalments to come …… as the fukry’, in terms of world events, it would seem …..

Begins ……. !!!!!
