TINE TEMPAH-FRESH ARTISTE AMIDST DESPERATE STANDARDS

Tinie-TempahBW

Tine Tampah the UK’s newest export is a fresh artiste that is sadly emerging in a desperately sad and flat music standards. His debut album Demonstration is a sweet mix of urban rhythms with some interesting collaborative and powerful lyrics. Yes there are some that can be considered NSFW but it is the exception and not the rule so the expletives gives the lyrics power.

He speaks what he sees and feels and so his lyrics are relatable. Mixed with the eclectic music arrangements the album devours your mind while listening to it on your favorite MP# player. The music moves you. It gets you tapping and nodding. Its powerful.

If you are into pop/rap and eclectic music with surreal musical arrangement then download and listen to Tine. He’s now on my most played playlist.

 

 

NATURAL LOVE – by Kirkland Horatio

..it’s MONDAY and you are not here …I sit here in this cold office and think back on your warmth and the weekend that was – the way my body conformed to you (almost obedient and child-like) in an unforgiving bond

…I crave you

…I miss you

…I need you

…I want  you so much

…I wish to return to you

…you are so firm, so well-built

…so, so nice and broad (just the way I like ’em)

…letting you go this morning was the hardest thing to do, but I had to leave – we knew this was coming, so I had to face the world without you and being the man that I am – I had to be strong

…know that I almost turned back, but I knew full well that if I did, I would have mounted you once more – oh God how I wanted to …I would have stayed in you all day this time …in you all day, and well into the night! …I can’t wait to see you again though – but alas, I can’t wait to jump all over you again

…my beautiful queen

…my queen sized bed, there for me always – until we meet again!

…with love:

Kirkland Horatio!

TEN THINGS YOU DID NOT KNOW ABOUT BOB MARLEY

TEN THINGS YOU DID NOT KNOW ABOUT BOB MARLEY

These may make you go…hmmm I didn’t know that. Well for me i was surprised in a few of the information. One thing’s for certain- Bob in his latter years became almost prophetic in his words, his lyrics only to  be manifested as truth after his death. Good read. Hope you enjoy it as much I did.

BLACK AND WHITE -THE NEW COLOR

BLACK AND WHITE -THE NEW COLOR

we are the same 1

During one of my many web surfing I encountered upon this beautiful image. It caught my eyes. I went back and took another look. WoW…this is powerful. The model in the middle stood out in the midst of the other models like the sun on a dark gloomy day. I took the pic and put it on my Facebook page and sure enough it got a lot of likes.

Some 2 days later I saw the same pic again..but this time I had discovered who owned the image. It was a photographic duo from France by the name – Ankom-Dream. This time the model in the middle was featured more in the pic as his torso was exposed. This is powerful I said to myself. I took both pics and pinned them to my pintrest. This type of photography is to be preserved.

I see photography as an extension of the traditional artist only one uses a brush while the other uses an instrument called a camera. They are both presenting what they see through their eyes. Ankom-Dreams has drawn this amazing contrast of bodies and simply call it – “We are all the Same”.

When you look at the photograph its not making any political statement, it has no social or religious agenda. It just simply shows mankind in its original color- some black and one white, but all the same being.

The picture therefore asks..why are we so different? We may speak differently, have different height, size, hair, color of eyes may be different but we really are the same- we all eat different things, drink different things, wear different things. Cut us and we all have blood running through our veins.

This picture is in Black and White but it does not matter- it has enough emotions that pulls the living color into our eyes. There is no black and white situation here on earth – its either black or grey. Somehow we just cannot come to grips with the brutal truth that despite our differences we are all the same.

There is something powerful and modern about this image. It speaks truth and it evades numerous color in this black and grey world. Excellent shot Ankom -Dreams. Black and white is the new color.
