When you blog you get to write what they call killer posts. This label is perhaps a tad of an overstatement, because quite simply what writing a killer post means is you’ve written a post that’s so good it goes bananas in google rankings and make you famous over night because it’s so informative and entertaining. I aim to write one of those soon, but for now bear with me please.
Male bloggers claim the best reason to blog is it gets you laid, whilst female bloggers claim the best contraceptive is blogging. OK, I made that up. But it might be true.
By the way, if you get really bored reading this post, you can just watch this clip instead. It’s funny.
If you’re still reading, thanks. Your reward is some actually worthy information:
A friend from the Afro Pop Live, who promote Afropolitan artists such as Wanlov Kubolor, Nneka, Muntu Valdo etc, recently hosted a world premiere of ‘Coz ov Moni’, the first ever pidgin musical. We walked down the kente karpet into the movie theatre without any expectations, but perhaps a slight nervousness about what seemed an ambitious production. It was amazing. Afrocentric. I loved it. It’s something by Africans for Americans about Africa. Get it? OK, don’t miss it. Here’s a sampler.
Then I followed up by watching an interview with Wanlov Kubolor, a Ghanaian/Romanian artist who also has one of the two lead roles in Coz ov Moni. I was less impressed. I’m just going to assume that the shocking response to condom use in this interview was a terribly bad joke.
I sent a text to the wrong number by accident this morning. A few moments later I received a response that read ‘wrong number, asshole’.
If by miracle, or through the power of energies, the sender happens to read this post, I’d like to thank you for giving me my laugh of the day, what a brilliance.
The world cup is now over and I’m relieved. I was getting real tired of twitter and facebook being overwhelmingly about sports. It ended on a sad note, but I’m proud of SA for putting on such a memorable event.
OK guys, I could do better things with my time that write a blog post for the sake of writing a blog post. I could for example keep preparing the MsAfropolitan Boutique launch soon to come.
Speaking of the boutique, it’s going to be donating a % to a charity called Forward, a serious charity doing real serious work in Africa for African women and that I’m so happy to support that I’m not going to write anything more about them in this non-killer blog post.
If you have any thoughts on killer blog posts, or killers or blogs or condom usage, please share.
