The people interviewed on UBC’s The Beat, one gets the feeling they are being forced to say the things they say. Maybe they are. They keep on stealing glances at someone just off the camera; like that person is holding a big stick and waving it threateningly. After all, they can’t be going like, “Wassup my peeps in Kawaala. And my rastas, I and I bless and we be hanging with NTV…”
After all these months, Tindatiine (the song and the chick) is still a hit. She still gets called to perform at Bivvulu. Riding on one hit. People like this, Peter Andre and Tindatiine. It’s not fair.
You know that feeling when you are about to meet the girl on the Sunday radio show. Remember those days when Christine Mawadri was unseen and she was just everyone’s dream girl? Look what happened when she decided to start being up in our faces.
I heard on the grapevine that Bobi Wine has been clamped down for two years for daring to write a song that’s overly critical of the establishment. Ati Ghetto got him in trouble for its stinging attack on the powers that be. Well, he can always come to my village. We’ve been looking for a bard for a long time. He’ll always be welcome.
How can Stanbic Bank lose close to 2bn shillings in less than 6 months? Is it like the punching bag, the whipping boy of Ugandan banks? I mean, they go and lose 500,000 (for those outside Uganda and who might think our money is too much, don’t be fooled by the figures) and then just yesterday, 1bn! And at 6pm when there is a serious jam in the town. Means the heist was planned well, factoring in the jam, considering they were not caught.
I think I know why kids these days are mixed up and don’t refer me to The Sunscreen. They are watching bad TV shows and playing crazy vid games. Where have Tintin, Captain Cradock, Asterix and Obelix gone? I imagine kids have to make decisions about red and blue pills. And they always swallow the red ones. The Matrix is real, my friend.
Some writer for the Wall Street Journal, with a serious case of constipation wrote that blogging is stupid and useless. Mbu all bloggers do is ride on the information of the MSM (read that in that article) or Main Stream Media. Well, whatever. Get a life.
Halliburton, that oil and construction company is recruiting East Africans to go work in its hot areas. It is being said that Iraq is the most prominent. American professionals are increasingly losing the urge to go. Even the money won’t convince them anymore. So what does that say about the Kenyans and Ugandans who are going regardless of all the scary stories? They have already said they don’t care, at least here in Ug. The poverty here might kill them but it will take too long and that means a lot of suffering. Going to Iraq to guard might mean death but at least it’ll be quick. Besides, they might survive it all and come back with a fortune.
Since Blogger can control our stuff, I keep on wondering when they’ll get tired of waiting for the rest of us to get on Beta. I have read many complaints of people saying the new form is the pits. How do you take on Blogger. I’m all ears.
Like, can you remember a time when there was no war in the Middle East? Seriously?
So Shane Warne has called it quits, big deal. I tried to spin like him back in school and failed. And I survived. My most entertaining spinners are very slow. And their balls twist even more beautifully before they hit the stumps. Get some rest Shane.
And yes, there are Ugandans who say “thouthand.” It’s so painful.
Bebe Cool could make a great president, don’t you think? With that Nameless guy as his Veep.
