Yes, yes people I have emerged from my self realised obscurity to bestow knowledge on all headz. Used ta be out and about now strictly lying low dispensing wisdom.
Too much going down to stay quiet, now all of us have to rise up and speak truth to power.

There has to be more to us than dhal roti and Nokia phones...

Kids are still little but are slowly starting to do tings
wit their lives but dis is the next best thing. One of
my boys making good. In my first blog entry a few
months back I mentioned a lad called Shah - Shahid
Ahmed who's an actor - well da film he was in 'SYRIANA'
has jus' come out state side and has been reviewed
in da New York Times last week and they gave him
a name check and highlighted his performance.
This in the company of G Clooney,William Hurt,
Matt Damon & Amanda Peet This is the same bruv
from Cheetham Hill, Manchester who I worked with
back in da day and from day one encouraged to get
into acting with a company called Aajkal ('Nowadays'
in Urdu/Hindi). Feels so proud today of him and he
was almost in tears when I told him of da review.
Believe it makes my working life worthwhile. Too
many of us falling thru we got to take da little victories...

Would appreciate any reviews/feedback from US
mobloggers who've seen the film.

Top pic is a video grab from a film called 'YASMIN'
he was in last year.

Heres da reviews:

Cheetham Hill was a lovely place 2 work. I worked at the Abraham Moss Arts Centre just down da road in Crumpsall. Not sure its still standing. Rumour has it that it got burnt down a few years back. I was there between 90 and 93.

Oh, I recognised that still and remember him in Yasmin -- not sure why that didn't go to cinema. Will the film be released over here?
