What if someone else shoots yourself in the foot

Meg the Stallion was shot in the foot by Tory Lanez during a recent car journey in the Hollywood Hills. Both Meg and Tory where passengers in an SUV, when they got into an argument which resulted in Tory Lanez shooting Meg in the foot or feet. She had surgery to get the bullets removed from her foot or feet and has come out and named Tory Lanez as the shooter, after initially staying silent on the issue. I didn’t believe it at first, as I thought some truths would come out about the shooting not being real, or an exaggeration, but no, it seems as if the Canadian rapper, did shoot Meg the Stallion in the foot or feet and we’re waiting to hear his side of the story which will most likely be told through a legal team. Both artists are very successful, and all types of media outlets are running with this story as we see other artists distancing themselves from Tory Lanez. This story is pretty wild, with the high profile celebrities getting caught up in an extremely violent situation, the rumours of a relationship and the bizarre continuation of gun violence plaguing America for decades. It’s as if the USA’s age is showing as a Country, because the Country doesn’t seem to have the maturity to handle private citizen gun ownership, generally & Tory Lanez is testament to that. I’m glad Meg is ok, and nothing worse happened, & I’m not surprised about the backlash Lanez is receiving. I am sceptical about how far this will go, as we see rich celebrities time and time again get away with crimes. Unless it involves not paying your taxes. I’m also concerned about how some of my favourite podcasters have covered the news.

The Magic of Amsterdam

Being in a new place seems to be good for the brain. The monotony of your current situation needs to be broken up now and again to add a bit of spice to your life. Many of us never get the opportunity to do this and I am overly grateful for my first ‘proper’ trip to Amsterdam and the first holiday away with the other half. Weed and prostitution covered up with stories of visits to the Tulip and Van Gough museum, that’s what Amsterdam is known for. It was embarrassing to tell people where I was going on holiday because instantly the seedy nature of their brains went to fucking whores and taking drugs. Continue reading The Magic of Amsterdam

My first Muay Thai fight

I started the day focused, listening to my Fight 1 playlist trying to get myself pumped up on the bus. The streets were empty, and again it really did feel like I was alone. I’ve felt like this whilst training sometimes too, the whole process of preparing for a fight is at times very isolating, but when I stepped in the ring I understood why. It’s just you and your opponent, it felt like there was definitely no turning back from the moment I took the first step over the threshold and left my house. Game Time!

The Handmaids Tale – Review and Spoilers

An ode to the misogynistic past of global society. How we have treated women in the past is abhorrent, and the handmaids tail is a unrelenting reminder of the gender split mindset of our world which is displayed in this amazing dystopian tv series. The show explores a world where fertility rates drop significantly across America resulting in babies and fertile women becoming a precious commodity. As this happens a deeply disturbing ideology sets in which gains political traction where all the fertile women are to be rounded up for breeding purposes.  Continue reading The Handmaids Tale – Review and Spoilers

Barbershop Boycott

The Babershop

The focal point for black communities.

The congregation centre for black men.

The  place to make yourself look fresh for the world.

I know this is going to hurt people, especially young black men who pride themselves in getting their ritual haircut at their local establishment, but hear me out. Up and down the Country thousands of men, f ortnightly, take a trip to visit the one man in their life who they know will be there. He didn’t run away. He didn’t leave you when you needed him. He was always been there. The barber. Continue reading Barbershop Boycott

Cultural Appropriation

America has been on a super black bullet train the past few months with Black Lives Matter, police shootings and Kanye West. Race has been a hot topic recently and the black social warriors are aiming their proverbial spears at anything that’s white, has dreadlocks and moves. Cultural appropriation is a sociological concept where members of the dominant culture adopts elements of the minority culture. The minority culture can view these actions by the dominant culture as disrespectful and can be seen as treating what has real cultural significance as fashion or toys.

Rap music influencing life – Quality matters more than content

They try and use rap music as a reason for the violence, but there’s no real evidence which suggests so. If you put aside why people make degrading music and focus on the consumers, you can see there is high demand for fuck bitch nigga shit, and there always will be.
