We've just lost 2 Hip Hop greats in the last few weeks

Malik B of The Roots

One day they'll stop issuing my 80 Yr old dad a cheque book, that will be the year I start getting socks as a birthday present, rather than a nice 'cash equivalent'.

The bank was not a pleasant experience today. The phrase 'piss up in a brewery' came to mind. I also asked the cashier what job she'd do when EVERYONE starts making deposits to the ATM... she laughed, nervously  :D


Off to pay a cheque into my bank's local branch... Wouldn't have dreamed of looking like this 6 months ago and entering a bank... Without an armed response unit in tail  :D

IH cap
Slowdive tee
555 21 with OK fades
Simple trainers

I don't check that frequently, but was surprised to see it.

A true innovator, lost to us

Interested to know how that came about, if that can be discussed in an open forum...

@Giles is this a genuine collab with Big Red Machine? Surprising if it is...

If you have a casual liking for Hip Hop and think Eminem is 'tha bomb', check the legend that is RA The Rugged Man's new lp. This track is just a taste. His fast rap is INSANE. he's been on the scene since 89 and is an heralded legend

True Story of the Kelly Gang. I've waited an age for this to see release, and it was worth the wait.

Quite a visionary director who used artistic license to some degree, but there are some great performances, cinematography is great, and it is very true to historical events.

When I was a kid I visited family in Australia, and saw a Ned Kelly exhibition that had his armour. I've been fascinated ever since. It's not surprising that the outlaw Mindset persists in parts of Australia to this day.

@den1mhead this might be one for you and Jules. Give the trailer a go...

@Seul and @neph93 thanks for asking fellas. I've been staying away from all things IT and telecoms related. Makes my head and eyes feel stranger than they ordinarily do  :D

I'm getting there. I've ventured out the house today for the 1st time in a week. Come out on my own to see how it feels. So far so good. Indulging in a Blue Mountain flat white in a deserted cafe!

GP prescribed me some meds to deal with this horrible vertigo ferling and numbness. They are having too much benefit at the moment, but are giving me the shits, so on balance, not sure they are 'the way to go'  :D my GP wants me to finish the course to rule out chronic vertigo. Will get a follow up (not through!) on Friday.

How you doing now @Seul? Walking straight yet mate?!

@Seul I'm really happy to hear your are through the other side of your op. Split stiches is no fun, been there! take it easy dude. I'm sure in private you have wobbly moments, but you are always really positive on this forum (in your own inimitable style  ;))

Thank you everyone for the kind words and concern. It means a lot. I got back home yesterday. I am so relieved to say that there was no stroke activity on my MRI. That said, because MRIs are specific to the type of scan required the consultants weren't able to tell me much more than 'well it's not a stroke, and that's what we specifically looked for. If you have any more concerns see your GP'.

That wasn't quite as reassuring. I basically have to wait until something like this happens again, and go to hospital under a general admission.

I'm taking a few days off work to rest. Sarah and our little fella have been wonderful. I am a lucky man. Apparently Sennen didn't freak out at all when I collapsed, he actually explained what happened to the first aid responder, and then started to tell her about different insect genus (he loves bugs). I am so proud, he's only just turned 5 too, so I have high hopes for him.

well for now, 'seizure' all later  :D

@Seul I hope you are doing OK mate, and I feel your pain. 24 hrs ago I was admitted as an emergency to the regions Stroke unit. Lucky to have my own room too. The NHS staff here have been outstanding. It has been the scariest experience of my life. Waiting for an MRI scan later today to rule out a stroke and find what caused my collapse. Being rushed through A&E on a trolley with loads of Dr's and Nurses shouting like you see in films was surreal.

We'll both bounce back though mate. Your a decent human being with a solid constitution. That will see you right. Take care dude.
