I had to share this joke of the day. iPhone 5
I wrote a review for this album a few months ago and this is one of my favorite tunes off the album. The video is insane and really makes you think.
Watch and share your thoughts.
LONDON CITY – Iceberg Slimm
Oh how I loved gift vouchers for those moments that you are stuck deciding on that perfect gift.
But now I loath the dreaded gift voucher as it has become so easy to lose all that you paid for it.
I have noticed that gift vouchers have an expiry date of two years!
Two years to me is a disgrace, cash has no expiry date so why when you buy a gift voucher would you lose all its worth after just two years?
How many times have you popped a gift voucher in your wallet or draw with the thought ”I will use it when I get a chance” only to discover it some time later, or when you find the perfect item?
Well this has happened to me on many occasions when I just did not want anything and then realised that the clock was ticking only to then buy what ever I could find just to get my monies worth.
Here is what one company states: Debenhams gift voucher terms and conditions states “The gift card will expire 24 months after the last use or balance enquiry and any remaining balance will be deducted”.
This in my opinion is not at all fair or am I complaining about nothing?
Now the biggest gamble happened to me when I was bought LaSenza gift vouchers, one year on I was watching the news and learned they were going into administration, I had totally forgotten I had it.
I was waiting to go into the store to save on post and packaging costs.
So of course I rush and decide to order from the website to be greeted by a closed website.
I knew right then and there that this was going to be a nightmare, so the next day I visit my local store and spoke to a customer service assistant before choosing some items.
Only to be told the company went into liquidating and had been bought out.
Phew I thought at hearing they had been bought out WRONG!! She proceeded to tell me that the new owners did not have to honour gift vouchers and that I had to fill in a form and they will look into it.
The look of the assistants face said it all as she kept apologising and looked genuinely sorry for me.
I was upset by this as the gift vouchers were worth £70.
So I followed her instructions and completed the forms and sent proof of my vouchers I posted the form off a few weeks later I received a letter explaining that basically my clam against my “LaSenza Limited (in Administration) gift vouchers will rank as unsecured”.
It went on to explain that if I was to get anything back it would be the equivalent of 1p and 5p in the £ this means10-50p for every £10, how shocking!
Any one with orders, returns or deliveries would not get their items!
This all comes under the UK Insolvency Legislation.
A few weeks later I get a second letter saying I will not be getting a refund at all.
I have bought gift vouchers in the past and I hope that all have been used and that none have suffered this blow.
This has been a lesson learned which I thought I should share please avoid gift vouchers like the plague or be prepared to play the big gamble.
Not long ago Peacocks and Game also went into liquidation I dread to think what happened with customer’s orders and gift vouchers.
For me buying gift vouchers is like throwing good money down the toilet.

When I was sent a promo copy of the new Ice Berg Slimm album I was so excited and I could not wait to hear it.
It had been a while since any new album releases for this talented UK rapper his last album “Da World On Ice” was released in 2004, So this I had been waiting for.
IceBerg Slimm has many hit songs and is renowned for his hit singles “Nursery Rhymes” “Badboy” “Lonely” and “starship” to name a few.
Iceberg Slimm also has many collabarations with Raghav one of which is the single entitled “can’t get enough”
Those of you who have read my previous blog called “the state of music” would know how much I have been waiting to hear some fresh music that would take me back to when music had meaning and good lyrical content well finally it is here!
This new album is entitled Higher, Higher is the first of four FREE albums forthcoming from Iceberg Slimm
This new vibrant album was outstanding the UK born rapper has stayed true to his old school rap roots. I love that he has not changed his style to suit the UK rap vibe that we constantly hear but kept true to his style and flow.
This in turn has the sounds of real old school hip hop back in the days when vibes like Method man, Redman, Wu tang clan and Big daddy kane were blazing through our speakers.
The album is full of heart and the music is so fresh and with crazy, mind blowing beats.
This album is refreshing and is defiantly set to be a world wide hit, because I believe that it is not only what the UK is missing right now but what the world and hip hop is missing as a whole.
There is so much empowering and thought provoking lyrics that in turn it is an eye opener for adults and children.
This album has been produced under Icebergs label Frojak Entertainment, Iceberg Slimm and Frojak have done a joint venture deal with D’vinci (Prime Minister) and Koalishon Music Group creating the brand F.E.K.M.G..
The production is of the highest quality, his lyrical flow amazes me, he has a fantastic way with words.
Favorite tracks “Hallelujah” “Rock da bells 2012” “King man” and “Ted Dibiase” are great songs if I had to chose only four that is as I really have so many favorites.
The song inside is a deep track where he speaks of the difficulty he has had in the music industry as he chose not to go the UK rap/Grim scene but chose to follow his true American hip hop roots.
Hats off to him it surely is not easy in the UK to pull it off but it is most defiantly in his blood. Ragga artists are not always from Jamaica but yet many artists use the phrases or accents, soul singers are not all Afro Americans the list goes on so if he has it go for it I say.
So my view is listen to this album for what it is and make your own judgement “organic” conscious REAL hip hop!
Fantastic rapper and album, an album all should hear and especially the youth of today!!
