Aang…I am not

For some odd reason, I decided to punish myself. I just got myself a harmonica (Simply Harmonica Book & DVD) & the rather difficult act of bending is elluding me. Dude (Steve Williams) said like you’re drinking a rather troublesome milkshake. Coincidentlly, I had a troublesome milkshake today, didn’t really help. My chest is killing me, is this how smokers feel?
NB: For those who don’t know, Aang is the Avatar, the last airbender.

Random observation: For someone who spoke so quietly, like his sister, Michael Jackson sure liked to do some really suggestive - ok, really suggestive is an understatement – dance moves, like his sister. Don’t believe me the crotch grab, followed by the energetic pumps (there’s a gif out there where he’s wearing some gold number); then the thrusts (from the video with his classic black & white combo with a red shirt). He was bigger than Elvis, go to anywhere in the world & you will find a [great, aspiring or downright crap] moonwalker. He transcended generations, made MTV & music videos epic. I always believed that the "This is It" concerts were not going to happen, sad to say, I was right.

Wish me luck, I have to be at Dudley for my 8am theory test, which means I’ve to get the bus by 6am, to be there by 7am. I better ace it. I’m still to chicken, to actually start my driving lessons, sorry. All this for a fifty something minute test.

Throw your hands up in the air…

…and scream at Mozilla! WTH? Firefox 3 has been crashing like it got the IE virus. Geez, it’s crashed at least 10 times today. Seriously dudes sort out your stuff, these strange seizures have been going on for about 2 weeks now. C’mon, it even crashes when it’s idle! Infact, Mozilla’s Crash Report’s now dead & it always restarts with all the wrong tabs (that’s if you click the "Restart Firefox" from MCR).

BTW, parents lock up your daughters, R. Kelly’s touring in Africa, he’s currently in SA. I know the legal age, in Naija, is 13 (18 for boys, double standard much? **coughs** Nor_____s!**coughs**), but you better shine your eyes-o.

The Boyfriend vs the Xbox

Just read The Girlfriend vs The Xbox!!!, the joys of a gaming reationship. Even though I haven’t seen said boyfriend in years & there’s this little matter of the ocean, a few miles & a different continent. I realised while reading said article, that I would be the boyfriend, you know the one with the gaming addiction, ok not Call of Duty, but definately Saints Row (ok, not SR either, GTA:IV is still my 360 baby). I wouldn’t mind the Xbox Live Gold Membership for  every Val’s day….Take note.

A friend once told me how I ignored/embarassed some poor dude, who came to visit/chat/break bread/whatever they call it. Here I was getting my crazy on playing Splinter Cell on PC. Ahh, those gloriuos days when my old laptop was brand new without that black screen of death. When all of a sudden some random knocks disturb my concentration, by then I’m already pissed. The poor guy says something, my mind’s elsewhere, I reply "No. I’m playing a game" & I shut the door on him. I can’t really remember my exact words, but it was something to that effect. I’m very sure about the "No" though. Anyhoo, he never came back.

It’s sad, I own 3 PSP games & no PSP. Thanks bro, for lending me yours. Finished GOW:CoO in 6 hours, 24 mins. Would have done it quicker, if I didn’t waste all that time on pausing, getting every single orbs/feathers/eyes & getting lost*.
*It’s amazing how stupid I get while playing a game – e.g I spent a good 20 mins wondering around when I got back to the East (?) Horse section, before realised I was supposed to break the bloody statue! Before that, in same section, it took 10mins before I noticed the damn cavity!

I, scratch that, everyone feels sorry for my future kids, Mama’s gonna knock you out. I wonder what my first article is going to be on?? I’m still estactic & scared shitless.

bond Live at the Bullring

This is my second attempt at this post, Firefox just went gaga on me & crashed, so I’ve to remember all my snappy jokes & remarks, I’ll probably just make new ones.
"The original all female string quartet", cheeky aren’t they? I was fortunate enough to catch two of their 3 performances yesterday at the Bullring, the first at noon & the third at 5pm (I missed the second at 3pm). Why? I was uploading the first performance on YouTube, my new impulsive buy, the FlipUltra, came in handy. It might have the smallest screen known to man, but it’s fantastic once you plug it to your telly or computer, I wish I had a steadier right hand or the FlipUltra HD. Plus I thought they’d do different encores, I really wanted to hear Scorchio, Fuego, Shine, & Gypsy Rhapsody live. bond have got to be the most energetic, manic, crazy ass non-singing group of all time, especially Gay-Yee Westerhoff* & Eos Chater. *There were times where she was looking dead at me with some smoldering action/crazy, I was praying there was some hot dude behind me with a camera, I was that scared. I chuckled when some random teen (5pm performance) said he "would hit the 2nd on the left", my brain responded "You won’t last 30s".

Anyhoo, here are the 7 pieces (for the purists, songs) they played, exact order (12pm):

Karl Jenkins’ Palladio I, Allegretto
            
They were just being cheeky with this. Some random dude actually uploaded a crappier version of my own video. Copyright infringement? Whouda thunk?

Antonio Vivaldi’s Spring
            
The cars are there for a reason. Peugeot hired bond to promote the new 308CC.

Antonio Vivaldi’s Summer
           
Yes, I know we’re in actual Summer, but today’s (& even yesterday’s) weather don’t think so

Antonio Vivaldi’s Autumn
          
Short & sweet.

Antonio Vivaldi’s Winter
         
**In my best Cedric the Entertainer’s voice** C’mon girl, just shake that booty. Random dude strikes again with a shoddy copy of my own shoddy work.

Explosive by bond
         
I was really chuffed, yes that’s my actual voice. It’s the sound of my own weird ass recorded voice that makes me hate technology. It sounds so much better in my ears. Update: Random dude struck again, I wonder if we’s going to give all 7 videos the jackery treatment?

Samba by bond
     
They are really a joy to watch. For roughly 20mins, the Bullring was treated to the sights & sounds of bond. It was awesome, the Lower East Mall was crowded, while people kept watching from the two top floors. They definately entertained us & we were truly entertained. The first performance was the best performance cause all their gimmicks (lets be frank, the pouts, winks, screams at almost the exact moments, the eyes, the faux duels, which I really enjoyed, the hair flicks, the booty shakes, which I found a tad bit funny (all my fellow Nigerians & other Africans know why), were all gimmicks) felt fresh, the first time around. Shame, I never saw the original first violinist, Haylie Ecker, in LIVE action, apparently she’s as crazy as Gay-Yee & Eos. But the new first violinist*, Elspeth Hanson, loves a good wink or three. Tania Davis, you were awesome as well.

*Tania played the first violin, while Elspeth played the viola, they swapped, so is Tania now the official first violinist or what?

To the dude who was behind me at the 5pm performance, my head is not your tripod! And finally nice shoes, I can’t believe I just said that. Their feet must have been suffering a rather slow & painful death, now that’s more like me.
