Last 6 month is technicolour

Posted in Africa, Food, plants, reggae on August 7, 2012 by olbiiyah

The last 6 months have run quick, too quick. Feeling less and less time to update the blog with runnings as runnings don’t run themselves. So pictures of my last 6 month will have to do and there are a lot. More exciting than my literal incompetence……

Nothing doing

Nothing doing (English football saying): when a referee does not call foul on an ambiguous tackle that divides the crowd…. also describes my inability to maintain this blog.

Since my last post things have happened, foods been eaten and events have been run.

Taken from my time selecting in Aber. I had loads of absolutely beautiful pictures from there but lost my phone and

Jus got back from a much need holiday and it would seem the UK has gone to shit. The worst kinda riot an unrighteous one that sees yout fuck up the place for shits and giggles. Little fryers that suck the life outta poor communities, a result of a lack of heavy manners at the home and social neglect. Jah needs to strike them with the rod of correction for the devil finds work of idle hands. My heart goes out to the good honest people that have worked all their lives to set up small businesses like that of my friends at Ideal Skate Shop and Hatman that have been looted.

Should have stayed in Spain….

Wickedness increase

I realise I’ve been rather slack as of late interms of blog focus. Its mainly been shameless promotion of my promotions which I suppose ain’t no bad ting. THIS IS JAMAICA 86′ was large! Great crowd, old and young and great music from all involved big up Bongo Damo for filling the void. This has spurred me on to do more secular nights focusing on specific eras of Jamaican music. I’m being selfish and doing nights that focus on my personal favourites, so ‘THIS IS JAMAICA 86’ is done with great success, ‘Strictly RUB A DUB we a go play!’ is next, DEEP ROOTS to follow and then RAGGA RAGGA RAGGA! Of course the LOMBARD ROYALE’s less stringent events will continue, but fuck it you’ve got to have a bit of fun and teach the youts the truth!

Anyway here is a collection of nice pictures of tings I made (bar the Fig muffin that Bobbie made) I have to put these up or they’ll fester in the soon to be replace Sony Ericsson.

Spicey Egg & Tomato Tart

Port a Rican Chicken & Rice

Bobbie’s Fig muffins

My over grown trof of tropical delight containing, Chilli, weird purple Moroccan plant, Mexican hat plant and spider plant.

This is the first collection of chillies from that same plant, grown in doors then outdoors from may in Moseley, Birmingham. In total I got about 100 chillies off this plant this crop were real hot, the later crops not so much so! This plant ain’t doin so well now due to a cold sunless winter window spot but if it can survive expect more for summer 2011.
