It's the 4th of January. .. the party is over...a new year is well and truly dawning . .. time to roll ... I’m flying as ever… the white noise of jet engines over the Atlantic in the dark with the small bright screen on the back of the seat filling my brain as Im heading to New York City … i was just watching NWA’s ‘Straight Outta Compton’.... As in yer face and explosive as any music as full on and hardcore as any music career ever was ….. Now I'm kinda recovering from that with somthing at the other end of the spectrum... I am listening to the voice of Elvis with the Royal Philadelphic orchestra ....Let’s face it this is a bit more in the classic range of easy listening more properly designed for drifting in late night flight … I'm kinda of thinking of sleeping... Elvis is crooning: ‘I can’t help falling in Love with you ‘… i can remember my mom had a record with this track on it…. just sometimes she would make us listen to it … and I can also remember exactly where I was standing when a friend told me what NWA stood for … just the sheer shock of the name alone…. never mind hearing that track ‘F the police’ for the first time … Now as I am writing Elvis is emoting : ‘In the Ghetto’. .. and for some reason NWA’s angry rap is merging in my head with Elvis’s crooning ….stuff gets muddled when you fly long haul ... Elvis and Dre …. Destination and departure ….. The future and the past … Thinking about it during the constant white noise of jet engines and the broken sleep of a night flight ….. the future is always a matter of keeping the past at bay….. .

Cheers Jez XXXXX

PS ………. I made it back to JFK …… Then took a cab via Greg’s place in Brooklyn …… cos I realized incredibly I had forgotten my keys ……. luckily Greg managed jump up outta bed in the middle of the night and zip out to my cab with the spare keys for my place …… in his pajamas temperature of about -10 ….. he really is a heroic friend …… he completely saved my bacon yet again :-))))))))) ……. Happy New Year to him and you 2016…….. as I said to Greg …… its all gonna be incredible ….. this year I’m gonna get organized……. hehehehe……. no more forgotten keys…….. as if …… hehehe …… But hey we all know its gonna all be an epic one hehehehe Happy 2016 !!!!!
