Thank you REDBULL

I would just like to thank Redbull, for kindly sponsoring TOTR's next event. So thank you Redbull we very much appreciate it.

TURN OFF THE RADIO'S next event, this Friday 1st May, 2009.

Shoreditch is Shit vs Plain Janes

SO, I went there on Saturday night as my friends band (Ezra Bang and The Hot Machine were playing, she is the bassist for them). I also went to see Theophilus London (who is a certified Legend). Anyway, I stroll up to 333 with camera intact, no queuing because I' am on the guest list, but before I enter I' am searched and the promoter says to me 'all smiles and no trouble' something which immediately makes me think what kind of night I' am in for and what a twat the promoter is for saying that to me. I respond with a little smirk bordering on a smile and a wink before entering.

Once inside, I wasn't to overly impressed with the crowd, your typical Shoreditch type crowd, you know the ones 'we're cool you're not'. But once I saw past the facade I really started to enjoy myself apart from when I was accused of being a 'fake cockney' by a guy who's Jamaican accent was as good as if Gordon Ramsey attempted one.

Ezra Bang and The Hot Machine

Ezra Bang and The Hot Machine were amazing full of energy and a great performance, if you haven't seen these guys perform live then definitely go and see them. Check out their Myspace too.

Theophilus London

I was checking out the other rooms and decided to avoid the foam party when I came across Theophilus London relaxing before his performance, I approached him (btw, he is very approachable and a nice guy) I took a couple pic's of him and we had a little chat before he went on stage.

Theophilus London's performance was EPIC, his on stage skanks were hilarious something which got the crowd going. He brought a lucky young lady on stage during his rendition of Whitney Houston's 'I will always love you', there was a stage invasion when he did other renditions of K.I.G's 'Head, shoulders, knees and toes' and also Crazy Cousins 'Bongo Jam'. To be honest I' am not a big fan of the song 'head, shoulders, knees and toes' but admittedly I was bopping away. Theo's set was flawless and track after track he got the crowed more hyped. He finished his set with Grey X sage (the sabali remix) and it was a perfect end to the night, well for me it was.

You truly missed out if you wasn't there on Saturday, just to reiterate my point it was EPIC. Don't forget to check out Theophilus London's Myspace.

Liverpool v Arsenal, What a GAME!!!

I didn't think a game like Liverpool/Chelsea could ever be repeated but not only was it repeated there was a better game in Liverpool Vs Arsenal at Anfield. Seriously, my heart couldn't take it and to be honest Arsenal really didn't deserve anything from the game, but when they were 4-3 up you thought they just might do it. Then little Yossi Benayoun fumbles one into the back of the net. YOU JUST KNEW IT.

I went through the motions, I was happy, I was sad, I screamed, I shaked, I shouted, I nearly damn well cried, my dog even bit me for jumping about but it was all worth it. WHAT A GAME OF FOOTBALL.

The Premiership, The Best League in The WORLD.

Picture taken at 3-3, Ella just before she bit me and put a hole through my top. Bless her.

Already a LEGEND in my eyes.....

British boxer David Haye poses for photographers during a press conference in the western German city of Gelsenkirchen on April 16, 2009. Britain's rising ring star David Haye declared open war at the press conference on world heavyweight champions the Klitschko brothers as he prepares to meet IBF and WBO belt-holder Vladimir on June 20.

Check out his T - Shirt, David Haye holding the severed heads of the Klitschko brothers, LEGEND.

Nigella Lawson

I, would like to reiterate a point I made a couple months back on this blog, HOW SEXY IS NIGELLA LAWSON. OH ME OH MY

She's full figured, sexy and a great cook, just how I like them. Check out this recipe for Doughnut French Toast that she made on her show Nigella Express, one word AMAZING.

Take a bow son, Take a bow

We salute you RONALDO

England People Very Nice

OK, so yesterday I went to see England People Very Nice (a new play by Richard Bean) at the National Theatre a play that 'follows four waves of immigration into the chaotic world of Bethnal Green'.

GET THE POINT, I did but was not sure what to make of this play 'racist or brave and boundary pushing'. The play becomes repetitive and the characters are certainly 'stereotyped' and for a traditional 'East Londoner' like myself Stepney born and bread the characters couldn't have been further away from the mark. Cockneys, amorous Frenchmen, Irish peasants, Jewish anarchists and young radical Muslims all get it in the neck. However negative, it does have comedic value and draws huge roars of laughter at points from the audience.

Anyway, enough of my negativity go see the play for yourself and make up your own minds, I could have said much more about this play but feel I have said enough.

If you are easily offended do not go and see this play.
All in all it is worth a watch. 2 out 5 for effort.

What is Creativity? Is it people being imaginative, inventive, taking risks and challenging convention or is it seeing someone else's idea and making it your own. Does originality even exist anymore?

Give me your views people.


(a male view on gingers, ginger women to be exact)

Ginger's aka Auburn's aka Strawberry Blonde's do they get a raw deal? I believe they do.
Since time began gingers have been getting digs about their hair colour ' oi carrot top, Easy, Ronald MC Donald'. * A little smirk arose on my face as I wrote that*.

Don't you feel it's a little harsh? They are a minority and this is a touchy subject because we can get deep on this. But I will not I will keep it tongue and cheek, I' am partial to a ginger and feel there are some gorgeous ginger whingers out there, sorry ladies. (Lily Cole above, Lindsay Lohan, Geri Halliwell even Jessica Rabbit)

Gingers be proud, stand up tall and say YES I' am GINGER and I'm PROUD.

Gingers we salute you.

An Epic game of Football

Chelsea vs Liverpool (4-4) Chelsea through 7-5 on agg

I actually missed this game, but got to watch the highlights and what an epic it was. Probably, well not probably definitely the best game of football this season by a mile. Liverpool cannot be faulted for their effort but major props to Chelsea. Well done.

That really hurts me to say as I' am an Arsenal fan.

Take a bow son, Take a bow

Pencil and Note Pad

A Pen/Pencil and Note Pad has become so important to me recently, I've been so full of ideas and I have noticed that as I have grown older my memory has not become the greatest. So in order for me to remember my ideas I have to write them down, I always try to have some form of writing material to hand either at home or at work.

To be honest I' am most mentally productive at the gym but I use my Blackberry then, how annoying I know but it helps.

However, the Pen/pencil and note pad is my most efficient tool simple but effective.

Long live the note pad

UNI - Calender Girls

I've been going on about these lads for a while now, I've had their mixtape on rotation for months and I' am excited to say their album now.

They released it for free last week and once again it's been on rotation, solidly for the last few days. Stand out tracks: My Life, Pulp Fiction pt1 and Calender Girls (above).
I thoroughly recommend this album.
