I’m Alive!! (Comeback Post)

Ok, so I’ve been off the blog for nearly a Month or so now & I’ve got a million reasons why but mainly because I didn’t Make time. I’ve been recording a bit, works kept me on a fairly tight leash so the back log of different things I’ve got to post is huge. As such I’m going to make this a  random mix post to catch up. 

STARKOLOGY

This is a cartoon montage for a freestyle I recorded a couple of weeks ago as always please give me some feedback good or bad.

Man with the Iron Fist Trailer

Epic Trailer combining nearly everything I love about film & pop culture. One to look out for.

I’ve just finished reading ‘A game of thrones’ The book to the now popular HBO series. Like many people after the 2nd season finished I was like ‘Hell hawh!’  so I’m reading the books. They’re not quite as adult as the TV series may have you believe but brilliant complex reads all the same.

I’m currently waiting for ‘Breaking Bad’ to start is 5th & final series starts on the 15th July in America (& 16th on Kickass Torrents!). An excellent show & I don’t often say that about TV programs but Its go all the elements of a true classic. If you’ve not watched it lucky you, start now from series 1 by the time your through with them you can’t watch the conclusion. I hope the producers don’t the show justice with an appropriate send off.

Here’s a cheeky little documentary I found on YouTube this weekend. It a simple digestible breakdown of how the banking system is strangling the society we live in.  If you thinks its all just rubbish comment give me you views.

Tracks Of  The Moment

Chill spot Riddim, a sick summer tune that I can’t get enough off. Tarrus Riley’s version compliments the strings well, another reggae hit!

Clips of the Moment

Epic Fight scene from ‘Meals On Wheels’ a Jackie Chan classic when he was in his prime!  Speaking of which his new film ‘Armour of God 3’ is set for release on 12 of December this year (12/12/12!) I’ll add the trailer bellow!

So that’s it the most random unprofessional blogging post so far! Thanks to everyone who is following so far sorry about the recent lack of content but I’m back!! Please message me or comment if you have any views on the various topic I’ve posted about & I’ll be posting soon. Bless

The Harder They Come 1972 ****FULL MOVIE****

As promised in my last post here is the link to the full movie ‘The Harder They Come’ – This film is a tale of a country man who moves to Kingston seeking fame & fortune but quickly becomes wrapped up in the cities seedy music industry. Jimmy Cliff plays the part perfectly & he showcases his musical talent well along the way. The sound track is top class, I would recommend getting hold of a copy if you ever have an opportunity. I don’t want to get too much into the story because I want you watch the movie but if you don’t have time its a classic rise & fall of artist gone power mad. I’ll put the trailer in bellow so check it out for a sample movie. As always let me know what you think bellow. Bless

My Classic Tracks Of The Past

This is a killer track! I watched “The Harder They Come” a few weeks back & I plan to post the link in the near future. Anyway this had me looking through YouTube for Jimmy Cliff tracks & found ‘I Can See Clearly Now’ from the ‘Cool Running’s’ soundtrack. Here is a diamond in the rough, it may have been commercial at the time this version way released but it will always be a classic. Bless

Chunky Mark!

This guy is my new best friend! Mark ‘Chunky’ McGowan is a ranting nutcase, but what makes him different from the rest is that he’s got a point. His delivery is extreme explicit & uncompromising, I cant help but agree with a lot of what he’s got to say. He predominantly gives his views on society & has been involved in a number of high-profile stunts. Just watch a couple of the clips of him eating a ‘Corgi ‘ the same dog the Queen of England has. This was as a protest against the RSPCA’s failure to prosecute Prince Philip for shooting & beating a fox with a stick. Very extreme, but the dog had died of natural causes so I say go ahead. Anyway check his videos out, I posted a few along with a link to his website bellow, let me know you’re views. Bless

My New Track – Ear Candy Freestyle

I’ve not been posting much lately so I thought I’d explain why. This is one of the coming tracks I’ve been working on. The beat is from a Latvian producer whose is a friend a Latvian rapper I know. Mostly the feedback has been positive but if you have any other comments I’d welcome constructive criticism. Comment bellow & let me know your thoughts. Bless

A Poem – James Shirley “Death the Leveler”

One of my favorite poems that I’ve had in my head lately. Hope you enjoy. Bless

“Death the Leveler”

“THE glories of our blood and state
Are shadows, not substantial things;
There is no Armour against Fate;
Death lays his icy hand on kings:
 Scepter and Crown
Must tumble down,
And in the dust be equal made
With the poor crooked scythe and spade.
Some men with swords may reap the field,
And plant fresh laurels where they kill:
But their strong nerves at last must yield;
They tame but one another still:
Early or late
They stoop to fate,
And must give up their murmuring breath
When they, pale captives, creep to death.
The garlands wither on your brow;
Then boast no more your mighty deeds!
Upon Deaths purple altar now
See where the victor-victim bleeds.
Your heads must come
To the cold tomb:
Only the actions of the just
Smell sweet and blossom in their dust.

James Shirley (1596-1666)

My Video Of The Moment

So I’ve not posted for a little while as I’ve been real busy with work & some other projects I have going on. As its been a minuet I decided on a new post category ‘My Video Of The Moment’. This clip is crazy, the FPSRussia channel on YouTube has over two & a quarter million subscribers currently, clips like this are why!

Now regardless of how you feel about weapons technology & its progression this invention is impressive. If you take away the reckless weapon use displayed in the video you’ll see extremely advanced technology that’s now available to buy for anyone will to spend that kind of cash. A hover craft controlled buy a computer tablet would have been an alien concept just a decade ago now its on the verge of becoming common place. Leave me a comment & let me know your views. Bless

My Classic Tracks Of The Past

I can’t get this song out of my head at the moment so that means I had to post it! Capleton on Hardtimes Riddim with That Day Will Come, it’s a classic in every sence of the word. I  love this track to max & the lyrics are what music is all about, passion & freedom. Bless

LowKey Quits!

As of the 17th of April 2012 Lowkey the Uk rapper/political activist has decided to take a step back from music. Here is an extract taken from Lowkey’s Face book page which has now been shut down “After many months of contemplation I have decided to step away from music and concentrate on my studies. Maybe at some point I will get back into it again but at this stage I feel I should direct my energy in different, more helpful directions. The ego is a destructive thing and I feel this business and these social networks in particular have a tendency to feed it in an unhealthy way. I will be deactivating this page. Thank you for all those who have supported me over the years. See you on the other side people.” He was & is one of the few artists to put out couscous music that really challenged the status quote. I personally am happy for him as I believe it something he obviously felt strongly about. Music can be a very destructive thing if not welded in the right way. He has such a powerful voice so hopefully people will follow his political work as much as they did his music. Any one saying he should stay in the music game I feel where you’re coming from but that thought comes from a selfish place. I wish the brother all the best & hope people learn from his music that’s already been released. I’ve post some of his videos bellow for you to enjoy. Bless

My Classic Tracks Of The Past

Another classic track & I had to go with DMX Slippin’ simply for the fact I used to have this tune on repeat constantly as a teen. It’s got everything I love about rap in it, Soul, emotion & a well put together instrumental. I  can’t get enough of it hope you enjoy it too. Bless
