You guys really slept on me…Like I know I’m not foooiiine but damn guys -_- :P.

Anyway…I’m gonna stop playing and get back to being B-A-D.

Probably going to reblog this and  have a pt 2, pt 3 and a throwback (real nollywood of me right? Lol).

I love you all and I hope you guys take care. We’re going to be alright. 

Happy, amazing and beautiful blackout dudes!

Stand together. Stand proud. Stand in love. Stand in strength. 


Black pride.

“Shot in the Dark” by Ozzy Osbourne

Taught by the powers that preach over me
I can hear their empty reason
I wouldn’t listen I learnt how to fight
I opened up my mind to treason

But just like the wounded and when it’s too late
They’ll remember they’ll surrender
Never a care for the people who hate
Underestimate me now

Accompanied by a popular video and a much more glam-friendly look (remember Ozzy’s sequinned robe frosted hair?), it became the most successful song of the Jake E. Lee era. 

Ironically, it’s perhaps the most atmospheric song of the era and the one on which Lee took the most risk (alternate tuning),but the one song not written by Jake E. Lee, but instead bassist Phil Soussan.

This is the song that closes the album and Lee’s career with Ozzy.

AU: A Shot in the Dark

Red Eye - A Red Eye is dripped coffee with a single shot of espresso. This drink is also known as a Shot in the Dark.

21st century Britain; a current place of recession.  Where industries and jobs fought to pump out as much as money as they could. London. It was the heart of production, various franchises and shops. The place was riddled with one type of shop: coffee shops.

Well, that’s until you look under the surface and head down to where dark deals and illegitimate establishments lurked under the belly of London’s society.

Nestled on a corner was a well-known coffee shop. Reasons more than many would suspect. Shot in the Dark. It had been around for five years now and it had rapidly grown in popularity over the years. The service was excellent with every order given out with no errors and delicate presentation. The owner and main barista was a man called Sebastian Michaelis.

Sebastian was currently putting out the advertisement signs in front of the shop before heading inside to check over the machines. He brushed down his black blouse and ran a hand through his crow black hair. He made himself a quick ‘Red Eye’ coffee (his favourite) before flipping the sign from ‘Closed’ to ‘Open’. Sebastian smirked to himself, thinking. I wonder how many ‘customers’ I will get today.

However not all of the customers that came into Shot in the Dark were bringing themselves to drink and socialise. This coffee shop was merely a guise and appointment point for a greater source of profit.  

Sebastian Michaelis. An owner of a coffee shop in the light of day, but in the dark he was known for organising one of the most successful brothels in Britain. It was simple. Someone ordered a specific drink and he replied with a question, with the correct answer Sebastian would give them an order and slipped a password in their takeaway bag for the complex building where money was exchanged and the deals were finalised. He was known as the ‘Crow Demon’ as those who went against his back or just went against him were leftovers for the crows soon after.

He sighed as he took the last sip of his coffee and gazed out the window. Today felt like it would be a grand day to serve coffee and earn money.
