  1. Chakabars should come on your show he's from london, close with akala, a self taught intellectual, political speaker, activist, personal fitness trainer, enlightened being and social media icon spreading truth, wisdom, knowledge, positivity on his instagram feed daily. was previously in the army and had a rough upbringing, is strongly in touch with his african routes. if anyone wants knowledge on instagram this guys helped me a lot he follows a bunch of other deep truths like @thematrixisreal , @eclectically_esoteric and @4biddenknowledge these guys to in depth research that is just mad

  2. He's right, he's not a poet. He's an ignorant narcissistic wannabe. If it was me in the place of the interviewer, I would have vomited all over that table.

  3. THAT POEM WAS SO BEAUTIFUL AND DEEP I FELT EVERY PART OF IT… FANTASTIC INTERVIEW ANTHONY,AKALA AND IMMORTAL TECHNIQUE I COULD LISTEN TO ALL DAY… THANK YOU SO MUCH BRIAN…

  4. THERE ARE IN THIS COUNTRY TOO MANY RAPPERS, REFLECTING ON THE PLIGHTS OF SOCIETY AND NOT ENOUGH RAPPERS TRANSCENDING THE EXPERIENCE, HE'S NOT EVEN OF AFRICAN ORIGIN AND IF CAME TO ME TELLING ME I AM NOT A POET BECAUSE I DIDN'T RAP ABOUT WHAT WAS RELEVANT TO HIM I'D TELL HIM WHERE TO GO. ITS ONLY WHEN WE START SEEING THE POSITIVES AND EVEN THE APPARENT NEGATIVES BEYOND THEIR APPEARANCE IS WHEN WE CAN START TAKING THE PEOPLE SOMEWHERE ELSE JUST LIKE JIMI HENDRIX DID.

  5. love this guy and the fact he's in with Akala

    but:
    could do without the sellout on the coffee etc   – gotta make a buck i suppose

  6. The Greek philosopher Nikos Dimou has been studying for sixty years the national character of his countrymen. His analysis? "Greeks live twice over their financial resources. They promise three times more than they can deliver. They claim to know than four times more than what they have really learned. And their feelings are set to five times more intense than what they actually feel. 

  7. Please try for Russell Brand on your show, if you haven't already, Brian. Just subscribed to your show, after seeing and listening to Anthony Anaxagorou (I'm going to be attending one of his writing classes at Ideastap, in Feb) how to catch up on the other ones. PS Nice to see a fellow American doing so well in here in London.

  8. This was an echo of voices spoken and put to the side because it isn't you right now. Its a warning!?

  9. I'll preface this comment with saying that I respect Anthony.  He is clearly articulate, well-read, and passionate about his work.  He has a great sense of history and has spent a great deal of time cultivating his view points, with that said many of his views seem contradictory, and bias.  The excerpt about stand-up comedy was especially short-sided and ignorant.  He states that "Art is meant to evoke, and not instruct" but he does not hold the same principle to comedy.  Comedians that make a joke about something or someone that is not held in great standing in society or is usually perceived as a cruel aspect of our culture, are not trying to get their audience to accept these things as okay, but to use the tools available to evoke the specific emotion they are trying to arise in the crowd: humor.  Just because Anthony's medium of art appeals to despair and anguish in an individual does not mean someone can not take the same subject matter and filter it through their medium to get a different emotional outcome.  Someone making jokes about poverty does not mean they think it is any less cruel or harsh on humanity, they have just chosen to view reality with a different lens.   

  10. The 1min28 video ''George Carlin on Our Similarities,'' – the 5min35 ''Power of Banks vs Democracy,'' [by Positive Money UK] and the 3min15 ''George Carlin – It's a big club and you ain't in it.''

  11. i loved ali g. i have never viewed that show as a "parody of caribbeans" even though i come from a "white" middle class family outside of the UK. instead, i always saw it as a parody of mainstream hip hop, if as a parody at all. ali g was all about instigating or, in other words, trolling his guests with his apparent unintelligence.

  12. WOW, for me this is definitely one of the top three interviews, and a great decision to start with the Poem, as it helps those like me that have never heard Anthony before understand his art. I have never even read a poem or been interested in similar types of art before, but this has now lit the fire and put me on a new journey. I am definitely more inspired by Anthony than someone who flaunts their wealth in a effort to find some meaning in money when there is none. Success is how you positively affect people in your life, not the digital numbers in your bank account that can be erased at any time.

  13. Looks to me that you have analyzed your appearance and new animations are cool, Exept dropping and bouncing logo, bit too much in my opinion.

  14. I'm really glad you've interviewed two equally incredible individuals in him and Akala. Imagine the knowledge they shared on their late night discussions. Two people today's youth should look up to for sure!

  15. "It's a sadness and it's lamenting, it sits in the back of your spirit and taps you on the shoulder every now and then and says 'do something about this' in the hope to make peace with whatever it is that's inside". EAT THAT LANDMINE OF TRUTH ON THIS SHIT SUNDAY YOU SCUMBAG HUMANS!!!! Get this man on Don't Flop to murder and humiliate everyone

  16. It would be great to see George the poet on London Real, he has an interesting perspective which he expresses well. I think he'd be an equally impressive guest.

  17. An excellent, thought provoking, engaging and positively inspiring guest. " I am not a poet" was deeply moving, and in a sense spiritual.
