Darren on Beyonce – It’s ALL a Blag

There’s been a bit of hoo-hah about Beyonce singing at the Obama inauguration, particularly with her admitting now that she mimed. Darren sent me the below before the Knowles revelations and as always he had a twist on the relavence of it all…

People often wonder what will become the next threat to the survival of Humanity. Here are a few of the main possibilities…

  • World War III, featuring the Heavyweight Title Fight: America vs. China for the opportunity to become undisputed champion of the world.
  • A mutated virus, either a product of nature or a biological weapon in the form of Influenza or, more worryingly, Ebola hemorrhagic fever.

Whilst these views should be taken seriously, I think it’s much more simpler and easier to understand when assessing this simple definition:

1. the condition of a individual pretending to be something they are not, especially in the area of morals; a false presentation of belief or feeling. — hypocrite, n. — hypocritic, hypocritical, adj

This reached ‘Mt. Everest’ levels at the second presidential inauguration of Barack Obama in Washington D.C (USA) on Monday 21st January 2013. Specifically, the invitation of Beyoncé to sign the national anthem as the climax of this historic event.

Now, Beyoncé has signed a $50million (£30million) deal to promote Pepsi but Michelle Obama, from the very offset of her role as ‘The First Lady’, has been busy promoting Healthy Living. Erm… let’s compare & contrast shall we…


It get’s better as everybody watching, either those estimated 800,000 in Washington or Billions watching across the world, witnessed Beyoncé deliver big-time with a traditional yet unique interpretation of the “Star-Spangled Banner.”

Now wait for the comment from the presenter at the end of the below performance, as it nicely goes into the final section.

But, it seems the truth at times can expose the trickery played on the masses, the best explanation coming from the over-lords of American Hollywood Gossip: TMZ.

I like the reaction of Harvey Levin (wearing the Green Polo Shirt), who is completely stunned at the slyness and front to do such a thing at such an occasion. This being the same man that founded TMZ who knows full well the levels of deception that celebrities are willing to use in self-promotion. Watching it, it felt like Levin viewed it as a step-too far.

If, such an audacious blag (Liverpool [UK] slang term meaning ‘clever con’) can be played, then what else has OR will be pulled on millions or even billions of ordinary people..!!

As for Beyoncé Knowles, her blag has not only failed but backfired on her spectacularly, as she is going to be delivering the Half-Time Show at the NFL Superbowl in New Orleans on Sunday 3rd February 2013. You see, Pepsi have been, even for their standards, going into hyperbolic-overdrive around this fact since November 2012.

The game itself sees for the 1st time; rival coaches being Brothers:

John Harbaugh (Baltimore Ravens) vs. Jim Harbaugh (San Francisco 49ers).

So, due to her endorsement deal alongside the clash of the Harbaugh Brothers, this Superbowl will be the most watched in history, as even those not into sports are likely to tune in.

As Half-Time Performer, Beyoncé under contract with the NFL, will have to do at least one Press Conference in front of the world’s media. I guess some questions around her ability to perform on the big-stage are going to be asked directly to her, which will in turn lead to some awkward karma moments.

So, reader what would you rather have celebrity or integrity? This is the question that will not only decide the outcome of the Twenty first Century but possibly Humanity itself.

Darren’s Halloween Special

The above is perhaps of the best Documentaries ever made yet is unlikely to be shown on British Main-stream TV.

Halloween is the one day of the year that ‘The Monsters walk amongst us’ yet in 2012; the UK population have dealt with revelations on almost a weekly basis have been revealed that something exists at core establishments of Britannia deliberately hidden but now raising like Zombies from ‘The Underworld’.

Examples being…

  1. Daily Express – Royal Murder Mystery: Woman’s Body found at Sandringham
  2. The Guardian – Record £59.5m fine against Barclays Bank
  3. The British Druid Order – Druidry Goes Global in the Paralympics Closing Ceremony
  4. BBC News Website – explaining the disaster that’s the Murdoch Media Empire
  5. Strategy to start former Investment Banker Euan Blair’s Labour Party Political Career
  6. The Daily Telegraph – Hillsborough report reveals Police & NHS Corruption
  7. Daily Mail – Allegations of tactics on Zombizoid British TV Favourite – The X Factor
  8. Channel4 News – The biggest establishment cover-up in UK Legal History?

Even after all the above 8 things that have so far occurred in 2012, the below has really shocked the UK out of it’s collective self-obsessed vanity…

Due to the breakdown of commUNITY in the UK & the introduction of individualism via consumerism principally in Fashion , it’s created millions of idiots whom simply exist within their own little words believing New Era Baseball Cap’s from JD Sports are the height of sophistication (I’ve sadly encountered individuals whom believe this) or those rare individuals whom have achieved fame possibly by being total apex-sycophants.

You’re lucky, I didn’t locate a HD Version of the below ‘orror show…

If you want a laugh, the next time a person you know goes on about how wonderful Geordie Pop Dollybird – Cheryl Cole is simply say the negative opposite. The reaction caused will be as if you’ve insulted a close member of their immediate family & that’s my point.

The worse Monsters are those whom are regularly on OUR Television Screens or deemed respectful due to elite status in British Society. Yet, due to welcoming them in our home via ‘portals’ (TV, Radio, Computer, Printed Media & Music Devices) we allow a magick trick to be played on us that manipulates our lives.

The Freemasonic Order believe that every Brother should strife to ‘become a complete Cube’ yet in the mystic religion currently Hollyweird favourite The Kabbalah Satan is represented as a Box?

According to legend, before his fall from Paradise. Satan was Lieutenant General meaning he was chief enforcer of God yet his rigidity bored along with possibly frightening his creator. The story continues that Humanity was created as a remix having the creativity of God but NOT the magick therefore delivering balance to existence.

The 1st issue of dispute came according to West African myths when Humans began making Music as Satan was confused that it was both simplistic yet also complex.
This puzzlement eventually turned into a passionate hate ‘hell-bent’ on causing the destruction of humanity

Urban Legend claims the actor Hugo Weaving used this West African myth as the basis for his portrayal as ‘Agent Smith’ in The Matrix trilogy.

Now on this Halloween day, you have the choice to be aware of ‘The Box’ if not then unwittingly become imprisoned by those whom serve it..!!

This article isn’t against Halloween as a celebration personally I like it, you can be serious & silly. Have a great night.


Darren steps to Young Money

Young Money might very soon become NO Money.

As Summer turns in Autumn or as they say in America ‘The Fall‘, it seems the latter might occur to the Young Money Empire that’s headlined by the following…


It started with Drake deciding that it would be perfectly fine to produce & include himself in various out-takes along with unfinished tracks that he purchased by the deceased R&B Legend – Aaliyah.

This lead to a Public Statement from the Family of Aaliyah distancing themselves from this posthumous album in some manner due to Drake not asking for their blessing:

Rolling Stone – ‘Aaliyah’s Family Not Involved With New Drake-Led Album Project’.

Über Hip-Hop Record Producer & Genius Timberland along with Missy Elliott as well-known friends with Aaliyah instantly made it known that they wanted nothing to do with Drake’s project.

As murmuring of unhappiness where being directed towards Canada’s best Rapper his Label Colleague & Boss made perhaps one of the biggest Own-Goals in Hip-Hop History…

This dis from the same Lil Wayne that made the colab with Jay-Z ironically called…
‘Hello Brooklyn 2.0’.

To distance yourself from the major entertainment market & Media Hub that’s New York City would cause a reaction yet it even became Political…

It must be noted that when big-time Rappers have spoken negativity towards major American Cities the results have been lethal & tragic..!!

Then the final part of this comedy of errors came from the most Plastic & even being more *surreal than anybody on the Young Money stable – Nicki Minaj.

In, this American Election Year that sees it’s 1st African-American President looking for a 2nd Term guess what she ‘spits’ (appropriate word) on wax. Please be warned, you’ll have to rewind this to believe she actually thought this was cool…

For an African-American Celebrity especially in Popular Music to declare opposition towards President Obama in support for his rival to The White House – Mitt Romney is on-par with thinking it’s clever to wear a Man Utd Home Shirt in the Liverpool end of a Football (Soccer) Stadium.

It will be interesting to see if any maturity along with business skills return at Young Money due to their Summer of total madness that might possibly become a very harsh winter, never to possibly recover?

Ohhh… this is why I used the Asterisk (*) in the above article was in relation to this…

Lil Wayne ponders on his influence within Culture & History compared to a certain Steve Jobs – Founder of Apple..!!
