What in the hell?

Why am I awake right now? Do you see the time? It's 3.39am! I swear, I must be some sort of noctural insomniac -hrmmm, what a great song idea. Anywhoo. I would just like to check in, I haven't forgotten about ANY of you who read my blog. I'm still here. I'm getting back into the swing of things as we speak. But yes. Expect more frequent blogs as the weeks pass.

My life in quick bullet points in the last month

1) (STILL) Ecstatic @ America's new president elect.
2) Focused. I've been in studio a lot. I've also been getting sick with that 'pen'.
3) EXCITED! I'm spending my New Years in NYC! I booked today.

Dizzee Rascal on Newsnight

Now, I'm not really a fan of Newsnight, nor a frequent watcher but I found this interview rather insightful.

I believe Dizzee was speaking the truth, his points were accurate. Maybe I'm being a bit touchy but would it be fair to say that the interviewer was viewing Dizzee's views as comical rather than taking his words into account? He repeatedly asked Dizzee for his opinion although were his queries genuine or was he simply trying to build the entertainment factor for the interview. I could also take a probe at the producers. The alternate shots between Dizzee and the black Lady MP (or whoever she is, I'm not going to front like I know of her existence). Was it simply the way the interview turned out or do you think it was to show some form of a contrast? Perhaps to project light on Dizzee and todays youth culture that listen to 'hip hop'? N I swear the guy said something about Black people in politics and said there's been 'two of you in there now' or some shit?

Hrmm I dont know

Either way you want to view it.

This is how you take advertising to a whole different level.

Herve Leger's inspiration

By now you must have seen the Herve Leger bandage style dress. He's had everyone from Lindsay Lohan to Kelly Rowland rockin' his stuff. His stuff is hotter than dumplings out of my Mum's frying pot.

I often wonder, what inspires fashion designers? Some have that flare, you know, that eye for fashion. And others well take inspiration from the unexpected.

Come on, you must be able to see where I'm coming from?!

p.s Happy Bank Holiday.
I'm off to shake my 'tail feather' @ the Choice Fm Carnival afterparty tonight

Lovebox Weekender Day 2

Well hello there.
Last Sunday saw the second day of Groove Armada's own festival, 'The Lovebox Weekender'. I was able to get down there and have a lil spy on what was goin' on. Now to be honest, LoveBox isn't really my style, but HEY! Press entry, I'm not complaining. I felt something like a penis in a girls locker room, except the other people weren't that happy to see me. LOL None the less it was an experience.

Here's some pictures. I'll post some more later...

Ya dun know


Sick graffiti - there was a lil exhibition going on there.

Skater show, that was cool

Momo beggin' the picture

This place was like a rave in a tree house

I had to buss a move

But yea, That's how the day went down. I don't have anything else to say so I'm just gonna say

Andy Milonakis

I'm awake. Nothing's on TV. Fortunately I come across MTV R. And my favourite show from way back is playing.

'The Andy Milonakis Show'.

If you didn't know Andy became famous off his Youtube videos, 'The Superbowl is gay'. He was later discovered by Jimmy Kimmel who also helps him write his shows.

ANYWAY. If your lookin to laugh until you get a stitch, here's what I'd like to think of Andy's best skits.

(cant see me I got bars upon bars!!!) CHA!

The Durex Dress

That time is upon us again.

As the end of summer term closes, the students rejoice in a place of celebration. The Prom or a School Disco - That's if your 'fortunate' enough.

Now it's been my second prom in my whole lifetime and up until the day before I did not have a dress. So there I was, at my computer screen, I went to Google. 'Prom Dress' I keyed in, in anticipation and clicked 'Images' - for some inspiration. One of the first images was

And if your not a rainbow kind of girl...

Or maybe even...

I love it!

People don't dance no more!

As once said by Emcee Kano, I'm not too sure whether I agree though. All I can say is, if they were dancing like this back in the days, it's most definitely better that we don't!

(pay close attention to the killer skanks made by the female @ 1.03)

Now do as I do everybody, bend ya knees and put your gun fingers in the air!

Bashy the Black Boy

An interesting conversation with Bashy....

SLR: So how did you come up with the name Bashy?
BASHY: Ahh here we go
[squeaky voice]I know you're thinking well it's like a shit name like...
Na I just wanna know
Is it even in the book?
Yea it is,
No don't lie!
It’s says name origination; Bashy.
Ooo ok cool, I thought it was a bit of a personal one. Ok BOOM! I'm Bashy blood. My name's Ashley init. I hate telling this story. SO, everyone in my family used to call me Ash Bash init. Then when I got older I was like no more Ash Bash, then my cousin was like, 'Bashy, you think you're Bashy'. So I was like, 'Yea I am Bashy... Bashy?' So boom now, I've grown up in a Jamaican household, I'm half Jamaican half Dominican. So I'm Jamaica it's like, 'Yo, ya dun know. Everytin's bashy. Ya zi mi?' It's just a mix of loads of things. So that's how that came about.
So as you know you just had 'Black Boys' out and certain people were trying to call it racist, how did you go about or around that? Like what happened with it?
Well the truth always comes out init. I knew it wasn't racist from the get go, so never in my mind, did I think, 'Oh I'm gonna put this out, people are going to think it's racist'. I didn't have that feeling init. So when it went out, I think it was a few individuals. It didn't really bother me. And how I went about it, was kind of, I just put it out for everyone to see and let people discuss it, you get what Im saying. Obviously the truth usually comes out and it did.
You got any hobbies apart from music? Like sewing or anything?
Urmm, yea. Crochet. [laughs] You know what I like doing? I like watching movies films, reading. I like reading, I never used to love reading, I used to love reading and then I kinda got lost and now I'm back on my reading. So I just like reading, I'm addicted to YouTube, addicted to my myspace, going to the gym when I can find time. But movies are definately me. I love it.
Do you think Grime is dead?
Hellllllll no. It's not dead, course not.

Can it ever die?
Na man, it can't die. It's just like for me I do Grime as well init. I do loadsa other things, so as long as I don't die and there's other people like myself alive. Music can't die. I think people get it twisted, like Grime is different from music. Grime is music, music is never gonna die. Music is from millions of years ago with people banging on whatever they was banging on with their bare hands and bare feet. Ya get what I'm saying? Music can never die so grime can't die therefore.
Recently I've been hearing of this little feud with Aggro…
Ahh take that out, it's not even worth talking about. You must of been on my myspace recently or something.
Ok cool, next question
Whats with the lollipop?
I'm addicted to lollipops. You see like how people have little their vices? Some people smoke, some people drink. I just eat the lollipops

Here’s where I start to get a lil bit cheeky
So obviously you have this reputation as a ladies man.

Do I? Someone else says this init?
Yea if you ask any girl, they're going to comment on your face and stuff like that
[Bashy makes a strange blubber sound] Not even bars...
Yea well the females tend to focus on other things. So, does Bashy have groupies?
Na Bashy doesn't have groupies?
Is Bashy lieing?
Na Bashy can't have groupies man. I have supporters.
So you dont have any females that are like [high squeaky hoe-ish voice] 'ahhh yea mann'.
They support the music
They just support the music?
[laughs] They support the music and I'm happy for them to support the music.
Do you have any children?
Do I have any children? Nooo no children.
No baby mother?
No baby mother, I don't believe in that. I will have a mother of my child.
Are you thinking of kids anytime soon?
Noooo, no time soon man. These are wild questions off the cuff, you lot are freestyling like MC'S. [laughs] No children at all, I'm thinking more 29/30
And you are how old now?
So if you accidentally...
No, there's no accidents out here. I don't sleep with my groupies.
So now you have groupies?
I'm saying artists have groupies, I don't have groupies.
Ohhh OK then.
You lot want to pick me out init, you lot want me to say, 'Ahhh I got groupies'. Na, I just don't do things like that init. Man like me, I'm single init but I'm easy.
Ok do you have any inspirational words for youths that wanna get into music
Have a rags to riches state of mind.
So just keep reaching for it?
Yea man, ya get what Im saying. Have a rags to riches state of mind. People forget you can go from nothing to something, ya get what I'm saying? A lot of people... There's a few people who have absolutely nothing, everyones got a little something. So if you think you can go from nothing to something, imagine you got a little bit of something, you can go all the way man.
