Jarrett you're a true G, thanks, thanks, thanks. Looking freshle in the manor now. No longer will Jammer, Capo & Ratty laugh at my Dunlop whites. According to Danny at RWD it's worse to wear the Dunlops with green. Not that I care too much, after all I've never been a sheep. I was wearing scuba diving suits to school for a laugh and I was bussing leg warmers and skirts over trousers long before it was deemed acceptable. Once again, and what?

It's nothing but love fam! Making himself known at the moment, Skepta's moving differently. I gotta shower him in extra niceness cause he's put me in a lyric. Spanks a lot. Sketpa 'Single' is out now or you can listen back to some realness on Logan's Kiss Show from last Thursday.

Sorry didn't get this one up sooner, life's manic. I don't whether Wiley turned up or what popped but apparently Berlin were expecting a heatwave on Friday so who know's if this shit was too hot to handle? Christian also directed me to 'shitty socialist-style towerblock' over at http://www.voco-me.de/blog/images/gt2_hellersdorf.jpg. He tells me the kids who posted this picture live there and are full-on grime-nutcases. People have been going mad for their podcast, live-sets of the parties over at www.grimetime.de.

Thomas Jefferson: The advertisement is the most truthful part of a newspaper.
Edith Sitwell: The public will believe anything, so long as it is not founded on truth.
Abigail Adams: We have too many high sounding words, and too few actions that correspond with them.
Paul Valery: The trouble with our times is that the future is not what it used to be.
Will Durant: Civilization begins with order, grows with liberty, and dies with chaos
Havelock Ellis: The more rapidly a civilization progresses, the sooner it dies for another to rise in its place.
W. Somerset Maugham: It is not wealth one asks for, but just enough to preserve one's dignity, to work unhampered, to be generous, frank and independent.
Moshe Dayan: If you want to make peace, you don't talk to your friends. You talk to your enemies.
Malcolm X: You can't separate peace from freedom because no one can be at peace unless he has his freedom.
Soren Kierkegaard: People demand freedom of speech as a compensation for the freedom of thought which they seldom use.
Jules de Gaultier: Imagination is the one weapon in the war against reality.
Mark Twain: The human race has one really effective weapon, and that is laughter.
Sir Winston Churchhill: For myself I am an optimist - it does not seem to be much use being anything else.
Susan Jeffers: We have been taught to believe that negative equals realistic and positive equals unrealistic.
Benjamin Franklin: Do not anticipate trouble, or worry about what may never happen. Keep in the sunlight.
Joseph Addison: What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity. These are but trifles, to be sure; but, scattered along life's pathway, the good they do is inconceivable.

Thursday, 7 July 2005
It's a horrible day. Mixed emotions. I feel guilty for being sad when I'm ok and so many aren't, I think it's the shock. The sound of emergency vehicles isn't letting up and the phones still aren't working properly.
It's amazing what a difference 10 minutes in your day can make. I was running late so got to Old St just as they were closing station. Despite hearing a bomb had perhaps gone off at Liverpool Street (the helicopters and speeding police seemed to back this up) still got on the bus towards Kings Cross, worrying about being late to work. I've got lanyards to deal with don't you know. Getting stressed about buses being to full. You always think it won't be you don't you?
Just before arriving at the station the driver was alerted to a bus bomb. By this point there were about 30 buses just waiting, not knowing where to go or what was actually going on. One by one engines switched off. Next the glimpses of walking wounded. No phones working. Panic. Sirens.
Until I got into Shoreditch it was a different World. Hundreds of people just wondering around, waiting at bus stops, not knowing... I opened the front door and the relief hit me. Back home it's peaceful and you wouldn't know anything had happened. But it has.
And I don't know what to say. n.b To save confusion note this picture is not from today

About Jammer: Hailing from Leytonstone, East London, producer/MC/hype man Jammer is one of the key figureheads of the grime/garage scene: big tunes include Fire Hydrant and Destruction VIP (featured on the Run The Road compilation). The former N.A.S.T.Y. Crew member (now running his own clique, Jah Mek The World) smashed it in New York earlier this year alongside 17-year-old protege Ears and MC D Double E in one of grime's first forays into North America. Jammer's also worked with godfather of grime Wiley (Roll Deep), Lethal B (More Fire Crew) and Riko Dan and remixed the big man of UK hip hop, Roots Manuva, as well as finding time to launch the successful DVD series Lord of the Mic! His incendiary live performances - some call him the Lil' Jon of grime - have earned him a reputation as the most rewound artist around. Like he says...Neckle! "A brilliant grime pioneer" - The New York Times, "The crowd were obviously loving it, loving it, loving it" - Chantelle Fiddy on Jammer in New York.
