gems in the mega rough Vol VIVIVXXV – SOund and THouGHT

September 28, 2016

I am often in awe of Alyssa Marie…She trounces upon all commercial pigfucker wannabe emcees, promotes powerful social commentary alongside equally potent womanhood. You can wear lipstick and still become as moving as the Moon is to the tides…Alyssa proves this beyond any doubt. She is superb. In all ways I can ponder from afar… […]

SunDAY NigHT On tHE EDGe of An unWaNTEd ReturN to The CitADEl.

September 16, 2016

I remain peaking from under my furrowed brow, as a year which has proven rarely anything removed from appalling, has of late, amped up the vividness of horror. Familial warfare wears me down. Yet it was learning of the most beautiful soul I know and have felt close, in dire jeopardy, that sent me into […]

Gems in the mega rough voL:XVXVXVXXX- raw soul

August 26, 2016

Its been a while, since I have come across any new sound which makes me smile, and bounce, eager to pounce, inspire or trounce… Yet maybe I am stuck in the past… I have come across a gold mine…pieces of aural history which have been seldom heard, yet some…will find it classic. True gems in […]

Use your eyes and your head…

August 21, 2016

And so we have received of late, the most recent offering of a picture perfect moment to add to any sympathy of NeoCon policy, in the shape of a toddler, likely anointed with fake blood, ‘suffering’ the results of the brutal Assad regime. Ponder for a moment that the NATO led horror show, has been […]

Nourished by the little ones…

August 17, 2016

This week has been a bizarre collision between solace and hades. The contrast staggering. From bathing outside on the verandah of a renovated shack perched on the side of a valley, with the wilderness in every direction as far as the eye could see, gales, steam, ducks, toads, our nearest and dearest star fighting her […]

US sponsored Kiev regime sabotage plans in Crimea foiled

August 14, 2016

Early on Saturday 7th August a firefight broke out on the Isthmus of Perekop, a small strip of land which connects Ukraine to Crimea. One of the border patrol officers was put down with several others injured in what was clearly a military grade endeavour given the weapons employed and swiftness of the recovery and […]

Gems in the Mega Rough Vol XXXIXIXIXI: I can’t front

August 12, 2016

I am sickened and appalled at myself. For I have leaned towards chameleon. I have forsaken my integrity, and now am riddled with self recrimination. I am finding nourishment for such total opposition to my essence on a day to day basis, on a corporate case by case basis. And I hate it…I am dressing […]

WAKE UP…to reality

August 11, 2016

Whilst we focus on the stage show that is the US elections, adorn Trump’s face on the Pinyata, eagerly await the new series of MasterChef and My Kitchen Rules, swoon over the Bachelor despite his face clearly confirming incest, spunk on trees and call ourselves lefties, adopt a position of moral outrage when there is […]

Cesar Birotteau – Balzac (Book Review)

July 31, 2016

I am pained to ponder that this foulest of years, during which consistent calamity has been the order of every week, may have something to do with my long overdue delving into the genius of Balzac, which began in February with A Harlot High and Low and this afternoon reached the end of Cesar Birotteau.

Gems in the Mega Rough Vol: VIVIIV –

July 29, 2016

Meaningful creatures. Honest as the Forest. Is ALL I seek… It is all I have ever sought. People who mean what they say. Always.   This year has been appalling, Curious carnage at home, savage blood letting globally, those I had for so many years embraced as my kin, my tribe, finding more fitting ports […]
