My website, my page my views
Not every aspect of internet use, Was intended or wanted
One thing that will always make owning a website. Worth both the time and the money. On the website only I say. The content published on it. I've never seen any point in publishing paragraphs. Slagging people off I don't put mine on here. One certain fact I'm not putting yours on here either. It's easy to start bad feeling in somebody else's name . People I dislike I will tell them to their face. Publishing it on here for the public to read . Then tell them about after. Was never the intended way. To use the internet at all, to bring a way of learning to everybody. People of low income without any means or money. Needed to attend university or college could still learn. Far greater devotion to achieve it was required. But it was possible to do it. The concept of the information superhighway. One of the early titles of the internet. As now lost all it's values. The inclusion of the general public which was always intended. Since the start as left it open. To be exploited by the other unwanted attributes of society. Disgusting perverts who prey on children. If two consenting adults want to push cucumbers into each other's openings. It is nobodies business but there's. So the rest shouldn't try to interfere. But when it involves children it isn't simply illegal. It is a illness and is affecting a child's life
Pulling together the scene. Gets stronger
I haven't got anybody in northern soul. I see as an enemy so would harm before help. A few I dislike like a few don't like me. It isn't going to bother me it's their choice. In a free country even when I don't like a person. It is for my reason's. Nothing to do with anybody else. I don't broadcast my business but keep it private. I don't need anybody to run my life. So don't try to give me advice, and I won't give you any. If you have a problem and I can help. Come upto me and say I'm friendly. Honest almost always willing to help anybody. I would love the 70's friendly atmosphere to return. Then it wasn't hierarchical everybody was equally positioned. When you all start at the same place. It feels better the atmosphere changes. Take it from me I'm exactly the same as the rest. It is a ridiculous thing to call anybody a legend. A lot more people have done far more than me. Dave Evison, Pep, Russ Winstanley, and Ian Levine. Are legends through the achievements they have done.
I have always given Ian Levine. My total respect anybody who calls him a div. Must have an exceptional history behind them. To disagree with his policies can be expressed. Without any real need for disrespect. If he disagreed with your views. I would doubt very much. He would resort to insulting your integrity. To make his point don't listen to other people. Make your own there is nothing to say they are right. People who say it in front of a crowd rarely are right. Simply try to make others think they are important
The northern soul , UK scene is what members make it
Over the years, I have listened to almost every problem. I do my share of moaning don't worry about that. If nobody moaned it would signal we are all happy. Times change quickly. This week the venue is great, next it's not like this week. Sometimes it's life others it's not. The competition is never made easier by promoters. Who put nothing on one week. 6 on the e following week. That as been that way as long as I remember. Honestly, doubt after all this time. That will ever alter. I've got no idea why as soon as one promoter. Announces an event everybody wants it. Like a bunch of spoiled kids. It makes perfect sense to put events on different days. But they never are. It's been that way for a considerable time now. It is unlikely to change now as promoters think it's right
The future for norther soul
It's a question often asked. But nobody knows the answer to it. A short time ago it seemed like there was little or no interest from this generation. But Jordan Wilson proved this wrong. When he established himself as a great DJ. The interest and knowledge he has. Would make someone my age proud, but a teenager. His exceptional shows devotion like early Wigan casino era. I’ve noticed a few young people recently.Wilson proved this wrong. When he established himself as a great DJ. The interest and knowledge he has. Would make someone my age proud, but a teenager. His exceptional shows devotion like early Wigan casino era. I’ve noticed a few young people recently. So who can say what the future holds?
I have no real idea like everybody else on the UK scene. The future has no certainty in it yet to make it a certainty. I very much doubt I will have any input either. I haven't lived the ideal life to live until 100+. I've done well to make 56 if I'm honest about it
NORTHERN SOUL FUTURE OUTLOOK
Over the years each generation. Must at some point reflection on life wonder if that's it. I would put a big amount on. When the Wheel closed in 1971. A couple of Mancunian's. Lent against the wall. Having a chat and wondering what are we going to do Saturday night in future. If you said you are going to Stoke. I bet they would have laughed at you. Three years later it will be a club in Wigan. It would have seemed you were on drugs. It must have sounded really unreal when you said it. When you brought Wigan into it. In 1971 who many must have just dismissed it totally. Yet it reigned supreme for 8 years.
When it ran I never went to another venue. That gave the same feeling and full passion. You got every time you waited in Station road. I couldn't really bother to compare any venue open to Wigan casino. As it is 100% certain. Nowhere today as 1% of the emotion and passion Wigan casino had. The Ritz, Nottingham palais, Tiffanies coalville. Might be good but only by todays standards. The Ritz today is a venue that is exactly the type of place that made Wigan casino so brilliant. So when they are Chicken and chips in a basket places. Reunion they most certainly won't ever be. It's what everybody was avoiding not going to.
