Home Of The Brave

Thank Allah I didn't have to ride in to work this morning.  nothing like yesterday dawn when this video was shot

Working From Home (WFH as we like to shorten it) can have it's joy, though doesn't help when my Moms gets wind of it and pops round at 1:30pm.  Making endless cups of tea and coffee, Skype meetings with colleagues, playing with the baby boy and entertaining my mother, is just about all I can do to get some work done.  Surprisingly I get through more than I would being physically in the office.  Still it's good and some days, especially rainy ones, I'm very glad I didn't have to pop out. And of course the ritual Wednesday lunches with my sweetie is always a blessing.   we must've been to every cafe in area.

Family, love, death and taxes. Life ey?

Ascension Fridays

was chilled last night, bubbling jacuzzi to soothe the bones, sweet convo, sexy times. Doctor's orders. Was a Maxwell night too, and driving home, I gave the old disc a good rinse, remembering why dude is so good.

It was back in '96 I first heard Maxwell, on some drivetime Kiss Radio show, Max and Dave I think it was. The host was bemused at the groupies crowded at the studio entrance, and the man himself was the epitome of cool, plying that hipster grown man soul.  Son was suave with his interview answers and non fussed by all the attention.  The DJ played Ascension and I drove to HMV there and then to pick up his cd, Maxwell's Urban Hang Suite.

Also remembered he was the source of some really classic Hip Hop samples.  Pharoahe Monch sampled "Til The Cops Come Knockin'" on his classic "Queens", Little Brother sampling "Whenever Whenever Whenever" on their song "Whatever You Say (remix)"

"Whatup Brown skin, Your skin smelling like Cinnamon" .. brraaaapp!

TGIF - Skelewu Vibes

:~)) Been a minute in Internet Blogging Time, but hey real life drives this

how cool is the dancing? don't you just wanna get up and brock up? Davido's Skelewu is that shizzz...

So tonight gotta meet up with a ghost from the recent past. scary .. muahahahahah (best Dr. Evil impression) lol.  many questions to ask, many answers to work out.  I find it interesting dealing with the nuances and complexities of different personalities. Not that I do complicated, but, I dunno, call it armchair psychology, mental voyeurism, whatever.  Sometimes the reasons for stuff are way more interesting than the actual event itself, lend a different spin on things.  I'm getting older, do plain and simple these days (pah! as if), like my TV black and white lol!

So, yeah, TGIF. Don't be evil (muahahah.. oh shut up Chromey!)


dinner served?

I so want to do Naked Sushi, nosh off a hot black body. never mind it ain't gonna happen, I'm tripping. Oh well, at least I have my fantasies lol. 

Oh, what is that I hear? You want to volunteer your beautiful body? ;-) I will eat everything, not a morsel left behind, and I will lick your plate clean ...


Was a sad Tuesday last week. Edward Mordrake, the two faced monster, killed Twisty the Clown in American Horror Story: Freak Show.  Dragged his beating heart back to very depths of hell.  Twisty's backstory made you feel sorry for him, but boy! Elsa's backstory? Freaked me the fuck out.  How did they cut. her.? .. never mind

A tribute to the scariest clown I've ever seen on TV

biggin' up Jesus while being trimmed

"What? You don't know Milton?" 

My local Barber, Bryce, gave me joke yesterday morning as I stepped in for a trim. He was blasting some serious Country Gospel out the speakers, big ass sing-along with his fellow barber Ta Ta ("what kinda name is Ta Ta? ya baby?").  I was laughing, quite amused. These boys are forever playing some seriously slack Ragga Dancehall tunes, nuff times having to tell them to switch it off cos I've brought my sons in for a haircut. Said singer's name was Milton Bromfield, apparently a house hold name in Jamaica.

The Jamaicans are just like Nigerians.  I grew up listening to Country & Western, no day passing without Dolly Parton or Don Williams playing on the radio.  Used to find it bizarre having moved from the UK where I didn't remember hearing one C&W song.  The other was the local passion for Rock music. Bryce said it was the same in Jamo too, started some nostalgic reeling off of artist names and songs.  Most interesting haircut I've had to date.

Come into my life

The weekend's flown by. From family visits to discovering cool wine bars to just chilling, its been good.  Most weekends I'm struggling to fit things in, over committed to sorting xyz and the third out. It's all good, as long as you can balance/compensate along the way.

It's interesting how our relationships and interactions with others come into play. some we bond on some shared common ideal, some by unintended juxtaposition, others plain attraction, sometimes you just plain like (or hate irrationally) the person for no other reason other than some feeling/intuition ("they are ok", "they've got an attitude", "safe brethren", "stush", "cool peoples").  I suppose that is the spice of life, permanent and transient bonds.  I once had an altercation with someone I thought was safe, the beef more intense than the friendship was.  Our compatibility was more in strife/competition than in camaraderie.  I realised later it was a force fit and I'd made the wrong call. Gullible.  Still, there have been friendships formed with the most unlikely of people, people you wouldn't usually associate with or admit into your social circle.  My mother was (still is) forever questioning my choice of friends and associates, my reasons why usually quite difficult to convey.  I dunno, organic perhaps?

Spoke to a lady friend who sought my advice on if she ought to continue a friendship with one of her girls.  Said friend had done some dodgy things that made her question their friendship, yet she still found herself in their mental and physical space.  I questioned the reasons for their friendship.  Not unexpected she couldn't quite say, just because.

Another lady friend facebooked me complaining she'd been jilted yet again and what was wrong with her?  I volunteered that there's nothing wrong (I'm biased anyway) but asked what it is about the guys that drew her to them, why the attraction?  The two to date have been Latino, suave dudes, me suggesting too cool for their own good, like competing with her vainglorious self.  We laughed out loud at my cheeky response and she seemed kinda better and less self critical for it.

I don't pretend to be some sort of armchair psychoanalyst and accept that some things are unique.  I have interactions of my own that I question, my curiosity and sense of adventure taking the place of common sense.  But life is what it is and sometimes you have to let things play out.  Maybe your original assessment of the person is correct regardless of how things pans out, maybe you find their character and world view interesting in spite of, especially when it tends to the colourful and "out there".  Sometimes we are wrong, but reasons for our mistakes out of our hands.  Some things flounder because of conflicts in interest, complicated interactions, not being in the right space and time, deceit, overexposure, new experiences that demand exploration.  I once had a guy tell me his new relationship broke down cos he and the lady went ahead too quickly, going on holidays together a few weeks into their runnings.  He thought it was a great idea, whirlwind romance, throw caution to the wind. He found her demanding, she found him less sensitive than she thought, holiday cut short after three days, relationship done.  Funny enough they've become great friends.  Didn't ask why, he wouldn't know lol.


OK, Kim famous-for-whatever. What's going on here?  I get nudity and all that, butt ..

Monday Blues - Drinking Coke While Clowning

What's with the Coke Xmas adverts? was watching Downtown Abbey last night, never heard of the programme before.

"what you mean you never heard of Downtown Abbey before?"
"I haven't! come like female ting init? is it new?"
"Oh that is so sexist, what if I said that about Dr. Who?"
"You can say whatever you like"
"hmm. says the one that watches American Horror Story on Fox. that is so female"
"how would you know? you've been too scared to watch an episode!"
"don't like all that duppy nonsense"

Can't argue with a woman wielding a remote control.  The first advert break had this big ass Coke advert, big ass truck driving around to nowhere.  No wonder Santa is so fat.  I had to check the date. 10th of November.  Next one was these kids running around in a Debenhams store, picking up random presents. What's with these retailers?  I don't even remember drinking copious amounts of cokes during Christmas! (that would be woofing a box of quality street all by myself lol!).  :-))

You can guess the rest of the ad breaks.

Talking of American Horror Story: Freak Show.  The featured Clown, Twisty, is so fucking dark!

And talking of Clowns, they've been banned in France for terrorizing citizens.  Professional Clowns in the USA have been condemning Twisty.  I suggest the Clowns lighten up :-)))

The Weeknd: Chill Trap Kingz, Vol. #1

Ebola Rant

The triage nurse first asked "have you been to Africa in the last three weeks?".  I looked at her really puzzled.  "Africa? it's a continent". she smiled sheepishly and rephrased "West Africa?".  I said no but was a bit miffed. OK, it's ebola and its African.  After an hour's wait I get to the see the doctor and ras-claat say's "have you been to Africa in the last three months?".  hold up, are you taking the piss.  He realizes I'm angry. "we have to ask this as a precaution". "doctor, the guideline is three weeks for ebola. is this about some other infectious disease?". he mumbles some nonsense, I cut him short, like get on with it, I've got no time for this nonsense.

When I saw this headline on the front page of the Metro, "You can't work here .. you've been to Africa", I didn't even blink.  Beyond the extreme ignorance on exhibition is an underlying racist mindset.  They bring their poverty and diseases.  You only have to read the YouTube comments section of a Vice News report on ebola.  Hand of God, Eugenics, name calling, real surprise at Liberians and Sierra Leoneans speaking good english, the gauntlet of racial stereotypes.  Despite what they watch, the struggle, hope, real effort and sacrifices of the people, the burial teams and medical staff they chose to resort to their basal racist nature.

Rant over. Good Friday folks

TGIF - Scottsboro Boys

I'm good darling, how are you?

Been a while I blogged about personal stuff.  Not having a Mobile Phone means I can't blog en route, take pictures, etc.  It's been three and half weeks and I'm now starting to feel not having a phone.  So I've fully got my evenings back to myself instead of forever peering into a phone screen, WhatsAppin', Tumblrin', Tweetin', Google HangOut with my American girl.  But I miss the odd instant reach out, the ability to Google for quick answers. Not having access to Google Maps turn-by-turn Navigation, caught me out cycling the other night.  I've reverted to primitive instincts - it's midday because my shadow's in front of me, etc - and it's not been so bad.

It's times like this You really know who checks for you, who will go old school to find you.  Had one of my home girls miss me so much she just turned up at my yard and spent a good part of the weekend ("dude you haven't been on WhatsApp for 13 days! had to check up on you").  Aww. Went to the park and played with the kids, she cooked with the wife, we lounged later on, watching YouTube videos into the early hours of Sunday (ChromeCast rocks!!!).  Kinda stuff you miss cos the digital age creates the false impression that we are always in touch.  In the old days visits were the order of the day, there wasn't always a phone and shit on hand.

Went to see Scottsboro Boys at the Garrick Theatre, London the other night.  Fantastic musical, incredibly soulful songs and a deserved break for me from what was a hectic work day.  Summary, in 1931 Alabama, Nine Young Black Boys, the youngest barely 13, were falsely accused by two White Women of raping them.  The story was told through song and dance, some really brilliant singing, a unique way to tell and keep alive what was a very harrowing tragedy.  Everyone must see this musical

Scottsboro Boys, Garrick Theatre, London, 2014

My 11 year old was full of questions

"Why are White people racist?"
"Not all of them"
"Is Alabama still like this?"
"No, things have changed"

But I wasn't so sure about my last answer.  Always sucks talking about race, why can't we all just get along?


Whatever you do, have a great Friday, drinks on me ...

Tips For Erotique Swingers, Vol. #1

found this on some random site, too hilarious

1.  Be warned! For the better or the worse pics may not bear any resemblance to reality.
2.  All dicks look more or less alike to us women. So if you don't have a face pic to stand out above the sea of dicks on here you'll stand no chance!
3.  There are many fake things in this site, "fake boobs" probably being the least concerning of them all!
4.  Add 10 years to anyone over the age of 40 on here. Subtract 5 years for anyone 25 or younger
5.  If someone invites you over for some NSA, it is probably not a free pass to join the "National Storytelling Association
6.  If they have been a member for a year and don't have any veri's there's a reason for that.... Run
7.  You think you have a unique perversion? Think again! Welcome to Fabs you'll never be alone again
8.  40% of 'straight' men on here lie. On a cold day in jan when no one was looking they would happily meet a TV/TS or man ;-)
9.  Don't try to look for a future husband on here . Really !?!
10. Be prepared to have deep pockets
11. If a single female looks like a Victoria secrets model ,but isn't photo verified nor verified enjoy flirting with a bloke

13. 'Objects in mirrors may be smaller than they appear'.
14. Cancelling a date an hour before you are due to meet with a lame excuse will not provoke the best response from the person already en route
15. When they write can't wait for round two on a veri ... Don't believe them ;-)
16. Single guys. If at first you dont succeed.......give up, it ain't happening!
17. If you don't arrange to meet within the first two weeks . You are unlikely to meet, fabbers have very short attention spans
18. If he only messages you during the day and you never hear from him at night. He is married.
19. The prettier the face, the bigger the cock the less cunnilingus you'll receive :-(
20. Women's sizing: Slim = size 8-10, Curvy/ avg/ athletic = size 12-14, Ample/ large = size16- 20, Fabulous= Just plain huge
21. Men's sizing : 12 "Fab" inches become 8 imperial inches; 8 "Fab" inches become 5.33 imperial inches. Men exaggerate too ;- )
22. Always shave and shower , nobody finds the Ron Jeremy look attractive anymore.
23. If it looks to good to be true , it probably is !

25. Know thyself... Experiment... Try things at least once, and repeat those that you enjoyed x
26. Don't ever ever click on "Gallery of newest public photos"... you could risk going blind for life lol
27. Boys/girls this is a swingers site. If you can't handle that people will have sex with more than one person at any one time.Then join POF ;o)
28. If you see a couple profile, but you only ever see the man on cam... it is probably just a guy that wants to tap your virginal ass! lol
29. Omitted x
30. Bi curious means they're Bi. Bit like marmite you either like it or you don't.
31. If their status just says browsing /curious = time waster or worse looking for a relationship. You won't realise till they have moved in ;-)
32. If they look at your pic more than twice in 5 minutes they are either extremely keen or they recognise you:))
33. If their status says they're leaving , they'll still be here next month with the same whiny update or they will be back with a new profile :-)
34. No it's never our real name. Seriously have you ever met a Lou Lou Trixabelle
35. Def: FRIEND (noun) a person with whom one has a bond of mutual affection. (got it?)
36. Look,smell,taste and be good. Simples.
37. Remember single men don't read that's why comic strip were invented ;-)

39. Remember guys Girls do talk
40. If you say NO and they still message forget blocking go public get a court order... Lol
41. Always helpful to let someone know you only have one leg before you turn up to Fuck ??!! Ancient history but a true story nevertheless lol x
42. When taking a selfie in your bedroom remember to clean your room and make your bed. It's not a good look and we do notice!
43. When you meet someone and they say sorry, did I forget to mention I'm a escort but not when I meet people from fab .. Keep calm and carry on.
44. Guys when posting your bareback pics of you and your long term GF ... Best to say. Otherwise it makes you look reckless and one to avoid !!

49. Cannot accommodate , cannot travel ??!! WTF does that mean? What can you do?
50. If they don't get in touch within 24 hours of reading your message move on it ain't happening.
51. Stalkers exist. Don't forget that your instant messaging may contain your real name even if you have a pseudonym on here.
52. Stalkers exist. Don't forget your voice-mail and email might reveal your full name
53. If you can't tell what part of the body you are looking at on a profile pic . Block them! The rest of the body is going to be horrendous. Lol
54. If you say you will pay for half the cost make sure you bring enough money on the day.
55. Definition of dementia: sending a Friend invite to someone you stood up 6 months earlier. Twat !
56. A wink = I can't be arsed to write and a friend request = I just want to perve at your pics!
57. Thank you = don't want to ignore you but not interested. It doesn't mean lets start chatting !
58. In every bunch of roses you will alway find pricks !
59. Demanding to know why someone hasn't replied proves that they were right to delete your message in the first place
60. Offensive profile names like "gag on my..."or "pussycrusher" are not sexy nor enticing.
61. On fab the uglier/older/ fatter the person the higher they set their criteria for you!
62. Use a dictionary to check the spelling on your profile and updates . It takes two seconds, but speaks volumes!
63. Beware of a couples profile with only selfie pics ? If you are a couple why would you not take pics of each other ?!?
64. A mars bar and a bottle of Asti is not a suitable alternative to dinner
65. A correctly posed for pic will hide a multitude of flaws. Laying on your belly can hide a fat stomach and show off a flattering ass ;-)
66  Expect the unexpected. But more importantly un-expect the expected.
67. Using text speak in your profile doesn't make you sound cool. Just thick!
68. A big thanks to all my anonymous contributors. You have been a big help with your funny anecdotes. Mwah x
69. If you are still on here after reading all of these tips ... May god bless you! You need it, as you will need the patience of a saint!
