Personally, I thought the beef between Rinse and Jeeday was silly, a bit like Wiley & Goodz. I was restraint and didn't blog anything about it until now.
After listening to Jeeday Jawz's recent and I'm sure final instalment on this issue it is clear to me now that the game is truly over.
Whoever reads this, it's my opinion and I'm entitled to it but Rinse got murked.
Watch and see for yourself!!!

After weeks of advertising from MTV I was highly anticipating this programme, but after watching it I was left quite disappointed.
"I don't know what I was expecting"
In the programme Pete was his usual self rambling on and fairly aloof, however in parts he was charismatic and articulate. There were parts of the programme when I thought this guy is a complete twat, but those feelings were wiped away when he took to the stage he is such a talented musician and people seem to forget that.
He was then joined on stage by Carl Barat his supposed best friend and ex - libertines band mate .... As a Libertines fan it was pure nostalgia
The Libertines should reform !!!!
Did anyone watch the programme, what were your thoughts does anyone disagree with what I have said?

I found this great article in Vibe magazine about the battle of J Dilla’s Legacy and the trouble regarding royalties and estates.
I've known NSG for a few years now and this guy is very unique and talented .... and if this video isn't pure inspiration then i don't know what is.
Some of you out there may not agree with me, but I think this is really good it works for me.
KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK NSG

How skinny is Lindsey Lohan? This is not a good look and all young ladies out there aspiring to be her or that want to be skinny, be healthy first and no way in hell does she look healthy.
Personally I prefer women with meat, so Lindsey "you gots to go girl!!!"

Barack H. Obama is sworn in by Chief Justice John Roberts as the 44th president of the United States on the West Front of the Capitol January 20, 2009 in Washington, DC. Obama becomes the first African-American to be elected to the office of President in the history of the United States.
For the people out there that do not know, this is the real deal for Caribbean food ..... Peppers & Spice.
This is the Balls pond rd shop, recently re-located from Kingsland Rd but my words cannot express how good the food is here and at a very good price too.
My favourite: Rice, peas and fried chicken with Jerk gravy sauce and a beef pattie.
"B'woy just thinking about it makes me hungry"
Highly recommended, Peppers and Spice we salute you !!!
Finally a footballer with a bit of dignity, he has shown money isn't everything by deciding to stay at AC Milan.
Man City offered a staggering £100 million plus for the player with weekly wages totalling £500k after tax, surely a mad man would turn that down no just a decent guy.
Good on you Kaka

News is that Nas and Kelis are expecting their first child together, I think a Congratulations is in order.
Nas is one lucky 'bastard' as I wanted to marry and inpregnate Kelis :-).
David Beckham has done it again, he's proved everybody wrong but me of course :-). I' am a fan of DB and whenever his back is against the wall he always seems to come out fighting.
Apparently, DB's fitness was questioned when he went to Milan but didn't he answer those critics this past sunday with an accomplished 90 minute display against Roma to make his AC Milan debut.
Good on your Becks, heres to your 107th England cap (capello you have to give it to him) David Beckham we salute you !!!

Far Away - Kimara Lovelace ( Distant Music Mix )
This is proper house music, that 'heads, shoulders, knees and toes' rubbish has nothing on this.
This tune doesn't actually get going until 1min 37 secs but it's well worth the wait, all music lovers out there this is one for the collection.

We @ TOTR believe Rox is one for the future (remember we told you), she has a powerful voice and great songs.
Check out her songs on her Myspace: http://www.myspace.com/roxmusik
OUR FAVOURITE: 'my baby left me'
One of Rox's songs also featured on a recent Rimmel Advert
Personally, I was never really feeling this Ed Hardy stuff but it did seem to kind of catch on.
Don't you think it has had its day now, just like Von Dutch it was cool for a hot minute but died a swift death.
what do you people out there think?

We all make mistakes and i'm sure we all live to regret some of those mistakes but this was a big one. I do feel sorry for who this young lady is because there are thousands of people after her identity.
The internet is the making and breaking of some people, but it may take this young lady a very long while to get over this incident.
Whoever she is GOD bless her and people be easy on her she made a mistake, she must have been busting to go. One thing I will say though, she's a bloody fast runner, ha ha ha.

Verne to WIN CBB09 !!!
I wanted to be all cool and act on like I don't watch CBB and I didn't even want to mention it on this blog, but I just had to and I would have been lying to myself if I didn't.
I'm yet to watch the live feed on E4, but yet to miss the daily hour shows on ch4. CBB has been missing from our TV screens for a year or so due the racism row but it's back with a bang.
CBB are slightly scraping the barrell with the likes of Tommy, Lucy and Ben ...... However, it is still very entertaining.....
COOLIO is very entertaining, very self obsessed but who isn't these days. Highlight of CBB so far Michelle Heaton calling Tina Malone, Princess Shrek. Very, very amusing.

A couple years back we had this young lady perform @ TOTR, she was different back then and nothing seems to have changed now.
Since her performance with us she has played loads more gigs, appeared on Jools holland, released her debut single 'on my own' and had an article written about her in the Guardian.
It's a bit of a weird article but do check it out ....
Everybody at TOTR would like to wish Thecocknbullkid a great 2009, all the best.

I love this video because as people we are never content we always want more and more is not necessarily a good thing. Will we ever learn when enough is enough and just to be content?

We believe that Danny Dyer is a very overrated and a typecasted actor, he has never been in a film with substance. His films usually consist of crime, football hooliganism or drugs (mind you that's substance, LOL moving on swiftly).
More often than not he plays a cockney, beer drinking, thug.....
I'm a cockney so there's nothing wrong with that, but what is all this 'i'm a geezer' all about. Someone give him a decent role, a challenging role or tell him to 'jog on'.
However, I will let him off just this once for this scene from Human Traffic:
