Cheeky Bars

I don’t say Grab yer ankles n twerk on stage but in privacy,

I put in work, merk mics, amps n do dirt reading A New Earth.

Whose worth his weight in gold? No doubt. Worth his weight in water in a drought?

Worth his weight in oxygen… But only when yer in outta…

space. Bumping Kapes? oh what exquisite taste!

Get in his face tell him about it, when it comes to lyrics he’s no slouch,

without a doubt politics manifests Oscar the Grouch.

And if yer favourite rappers not me I suggest you watch yer mouth!

Wastemans wit… and wise mans wisdom.

Ever since i listened to Ice T “That’s how im livin.”

Lyrically Tony Jaas fists N feet,  the drum of you sickest beat,

the cap on the pyramid, the rapper that’s infinite.



Gender Issues

“Xenomorph Beth going Indominus Rex” – It’s a Rick and Morty reference, one day that’ll make sense.

Just had a highly enlightening and synchronously relevant conversation with some inspiring guys and girls about heterosexual males who are in touch with their feminine side being assumed to be gay, and how insecurity can lead to being offended not due to homophobia – there’s obviously nothing wrong with being gay – but due to wanting to be seen as attractive and available to women. The conclusion was that most heterosexual (or bi-sexual) women worth hanging out with are going to be attracted to a man who is in touch with his feminine side, and even if they think you are unavailable that will just make you more attractive. Highly enlightening. Now I’m sure there is some section of society that I am inadvertently leaving out of the conversation but I am primarily talking about men I can relate to – heterosexual men – and I am primarily talking about women I am attracted to and available to – heterosexual and bisexual women. I realise that gender is not polarised in such dual and limited ways but that is what I have personal experience with so that is what I am writing abut. N doubt someone will get offended, it’s impossible to talk about such things without offending somebody, but I mean no offence.

It’s a conversation worth having. Straight guys, don’t feel unattractive or unavailable to women just cos you’re in touch with your feminine sides, it turns out that being unavailable is attractive, it also turns out that being in touch with your feminine side is really, really attractive. Wubalubadubdub!

Inspired by a conversation with Chris Paradox…

It could be argued that none of us know anything. “Am I a man who dreamed he was a butterfly or a butterfly who is dreaming he is a man?” Scientists disprove each other all the time so we can’t rely on that to have all the answers, and the “hard problem” of how can consciousness study consciousness if it uses consciousness to study consciousness hasn’t been solved. Add to that ol Socrates quote, “the wise one is the one who knows they know nothing” and ignorance does appear to be the only realistic status. Having said all that given the choice of optimism or pessimism, at least in my own experience it does feel more “useful” to assume the best than assume the worst. But essentially either stance is delusional. But we are forced into delusion – what is the alternative? I’m just not gonna bother eating today cos I could wake up tomorrow and find out I’m a butterfly dreaming? I’m not gonna go to work today cos I could wak up in the Matrix any time? While I’m quoting people smarter than me Einstein said “time is an illusion, but a very persistent one”. Yeah, try telling that to your boss when you’re late. So yeah, the Buddhists say it’s all illusion so pick one that suits you. But apart from brief moments of lucidity, yes I agree, we are generally living in ignorance and delusion.

At the risk of sounding arrogant – most people don’t think about these things and are happy to live in a world where duality and absolutes are a given. One could say that for a philosopher the ideas that “no one can predict the future” or “knows the nature of reality” aspects are very basic, and maybe yes they are to a natural born philosopher. But while I probably spent too many years wondering whether or not I was a figment of my own imagination I have had to accept that not only will many people not ponder these things, perhaps most people don’t want to. And I can’t blame them, questioning my existence didn’t make me much money or win me many friends (actually maybe it did, I’m not sure.) Even, sometimes especially, in communities that I associated with being open minded – activist communities, spiritual communities – people are really attached to “knowing”. Some people do not want to leave the cave and will get upset if you tell them there’s another world out there.

Also things get lost in semantics, or the meanings of words. For example if I say I believe that whatever you believe is true for you does that mean that I believe in nothing or I believe in something? Or if I say that I believe that my name is Kevin but only to a certain extent because there are no absolutes. I could qualify that by saying I believe my name is Kevin because that’s what the people I believe to be my parents called me since I was a child but there is probably a less than one percent chance that I am adopted cos I look like my mum and maybe my birth parents had a different name for me. Also I think that’s my name but I could be a body in a hooked up to a computer simulation and my name could be test subject 2341. But someone who believes in duality and absolutes might tell you that they know what their name is. They might say I’m splitting hairs and being pedantic but I would say I am merely being factually correct as much as I can be with my limited knowledge. But if you didn’t get to read to the bottom of this paragraph I wouldn’t blame you – cos most people don’t want to consider the possibility that their world is a lie, most people are not natural born philosophers and while I don’t think I’m more intelligent than other people I do think I’m more inclined to ponder these things than most and I don’t have a right to get upset that other people don’t want to “be with their discomfort”. Why am I expressing this? I guess because it used to piss me off. Why? Because if more people questioned the nature of reality maybe more people would realise how much they’re being lied to everyday by the mainstream media, there would be less justification for war and less genocide on the planet BUT guess what – that’s just my belief. Ahhhhhhh that felt really good.

ps I believe that we shouldn’t call those mini-segways hoverboards. They don’t hover, they roll. That’s some bullsh**.

Roots and Permaculture (The Permaculture Poem) #permaculture #sustainability

I have two long term projects. The first project – a Conscious Hip-Hop Cabaret (with an optional dub healing room depending on the space), an event which both promotes and raises funds for sustainablity projects, charities, and permaculture projects. The second project, partially financed by the first – a sustainable community that lives by these principles (and a base where events and workshops can take place.) The second project, partially financed by the first – a sustainable community that lives by these principles and a base where events and workshops can take place. Surrounded by healing plants from hemp to lavender, hemp being such a versatile plant for energy, food and building materials it could help make the rest of the project sustainable but permaculture principles will avoid a mono-culture of just hemp.

As a step towards this I felt like I should write a poem / rap about permaculture principles, cos if I’m going to be both director and performer at these events, I should have some rhymes to perform on the subject. Last night and this morning I wrote that poem / rap. And here it is…

I hope you enjoy the poem below, and I hope you are inspired by the ideas above.

Roots and Permaculture
(The Permaculture Poem)
(INTRO)
ROOTS and Permaculture – the ‘Edge Effect’ –
the use of natural patterns… for less regrets
increasing diversity n productivity in our systems
like increasing flows and verbal algorithms in our rhythms.
(CHORUS)
I was all about Taoism n Tibetan Buddhism,
Now I’m learning ‘bout roots and permaculture livin
… Taoism, Tibetan Buddhism,
and learning about roots and permaculture livin
Communicate these ideas to generous millionaires
Communicate these ideas with altruistic billionaires
Communicate these ideas to generous millionaires
Communicate these ideas with altruistic billionaires
_
(VERSE 1, Principles 1 – 4)
Roots and culture, roots and permaculture
Observe and interact, collaborate and work with, react
Beauty’s in the eye of the beholder, Look around and be Earth’s soldier
Planting when it’s getting warmer, harvest before it’s colder
_
Catch and store energy, making use of the sunlight blessing me
“Make hay while the sun shines” big trees store sunshine
and south-facing walls can store sunshine, that’s some find,
like my phone and notebooks store fun rhymes.
_
Obtain a yield, make the most of your field
You can’t work on an empty stomach, or the strain gets revealed
Give your stomach that good vibration
Of raw food that’s been through a healthy fermentation
_
Self regulation and constructive criticism
supports the next 7 generations, that’s a given.
Use discernment and temperamence, not gimmicks,
It’s good to dream big but also know your limits.
____ (16 Bars verse 1)
(CHORUS)
I was all about Taoism n Tibetan Buddhism,
Now I’m learning ‘bout roots and permaculture livin
… Taoism, Tibetan Buddhism,
and learning about roots and permaculture livin
Communicate these ideas to generous millionaires
Communicate these ideas with altruistic billionaires
Communicate these ideas to generous millionaires
Communicate these ideas with altruistic billionaires
(VERSE 2, Principles 5 -8)
Use and value renewable resource,
sunlight or strength of horse, but let nature take it’s course
Cos if it’s not sustainable it’s unsustainable,
So sustainable solutions are inevitable, we’ll change it all.
Waste not want not, fill your face or lunch box,
someone else’s face or lunch box, recycling or compost.
Everything’s useful if you rest with it long enough,
Solutions often come in nature walks when you wander off.
_
see the stumbles as steps to success, never see fails,
start from a birds eye view of the patterns before the details.
Take a step back to see the patterns like fractals in the leaves
So you CAN see the forest for the trees.
_
Rather than compete, collaborate!
Integrate! Rather than segregate!
United we stand, divided we fall sun, “Many hands make light work”, besides, we’re all one.
(CHORUS)
I was all about Taoism n Tibetan Buddhism,
Now I’m learning ‘bout roots and permaculture livin
… Taoism, Tibetan Buddhism,
and learning about roots and permaculture livin
Communicate these ideas with generous millionaires
Communicate these ideas with altruistic billionaires
Communicate these ideas with generous millionaires
Communicate these ideas with altruistic billionaires
(VERSE 3, Principles 9 – 12)
Principle 9 is very Taoist and divine,
Solutions small and slow will make big differences you’ll find,
“Slow and steady wins the race,” said the Taoist.
“The bigger they are…” replied the minimalist.
_
diversify, use diversity
your ally is variety
Variety is the spice of life,
Less of each with more diversity is twice as nice.
_
At the edges of habitats – intriguing interfaces
Like non-monoculture hedges attract more insects to these places
It’s time for those indoors to start boiling their kettles
Cos at the edge of the forest your boys been foraging for nettles
_
So we react to changes, and we look ahead,
As our plan rearranges cos we’re nature led.
And it’s more than reasonable to eat local and seasonal.
We’ll keep it all sustainable and eat it all – well fed.
(CHORUS)
I was all about Taoism n Tibetan Buddhism,
Now I’m learning ‘bout roots and permaculture livin
… Taoism, Tibetan Buddhism,

Communicate these ideas with altruistic billionaires
Communicate these ideas to generous millionaires
Communicate these ideas with altruistic billionaires.
(Outro)
ROOTS and Permaculture – the ‘Edge Effect’ –
the use of natural patterns… for less regrets
increasing diversity n productivity in our systems
like increasing flows and verbal algorithms in our rhythms.

Energy Shifts (lyrics)

[Verse 1: KP Kev the Poet]

Mighty healthy combination of chi-gung and changa
Long-barrows, crop-circles and ganja

Real recognise real, the truth will reveal
Breathe in love, breathe out gratitude – how do you feel?

I heard the words of Parliament and Funkadelic in rhyme…
“Everybody’s going to make it this time”

We are love, we’re not faking, we shine
“Do not be rocked… when emotions rock your soul”

Synchro-info, shadow of the crow
Battle of the Beanfields to crop-circles in Beanfields

And the info came from Avalon Roots Green-Bean
Sunlight cleans vision for vision-quests and missions

Read the writing in the fields within your field of vision
Read the news you won’t be seein’ on your televisions

Uber-high-grade vibrations super-saiyan level thirty three
Point 3 point shot – ceremony in a crop

CHORUS
So raise peace signs in the air…
And wave em like you just don’t care…

And if you’re ready to get love, give love, be love
Somebody say “Oh Yeah”

Oh yeah, “oh yeah”
Oh yeah, “oh yeah”

Oh yeah there have been energy shifts
This is how we flip your scripts…

VERSE 2
Lots of police may be fascists who bully
But when it goes down many will help us – truly!

The one’s who wanna make a change.. BE the change
You wanna see, not just pawns in Babylons games

Like Dave Shayler, from exMI5 to Rainbow Gatherings
Unless he’s still Mi5 information gathering!

But I doubt it! Sometimes I wish he was…
Cos then he’d have to tell them “‘One-Love’ is a lovely buzz.”

I don’t REALLY wish he he was, Lebowski “Don’t **** with the Jesus!”
The ‘One-Love’ vibe is better than your weed buzz

We got what you need cos we represent a spring water flow
From West Kennet to Stony Littleton long barrow

Blessed to get… electromagnetic…
Attraction… to a fairy princess with

A plan then geomancing the seed of life we
Rep mother earth like Gaia’s our wifey

(BRIDGE or CHORUS? VERSE 3 OR CONTINUATION OF VERSE 2?)

Oh yeah there have been energy shifts
Ask Galactic Central about the Synchromystickz

Ask Sirius about me and specifics
This is how we flip your scripts…

Riverside skinny dippin’ wiccan witches takin’ pictures
Finding crystal rocks in Dartington’s rivers

Ever so synchronous and mystic, “is it?”
With random witnessess calling us wizards!

Butterflys and dragonflys flutter by, some don’t bat an eye
But if you focus you may notice the magic moment they denoted

Butterflys and dragonflys flutter by, some don’t bat an eye
But if you focus you may notice the magic moment they denoted

CHORUS
So raise peace signs in the air…
And wave em like you just don’t care…

And if you’re ready to get love, give love, be love
Somebody say “Oh Yeah”

Oh yeah, “oh yeah”
Oh yeah, “oh yeah”

Oh yeah there have been energy shifts
This is how we flip your scripts…

OUTRO
Put two middle fingers in the air!
And wave em like you just don’t care!

When we walk through Babylon with Zion inside
Somebody say, “No fear”

No fear, “no fear”
No fear, “no fear”

No fear, “no fear”
Nothin’ but love in here

No fear, “no fear”
No fear, “no fear”

No fear, “no fear”
