LISTENING: Color me Surprised

Isn't it crazy when you've been listening to someone's music and made up an image in your mind of what they would look like and then you see them and you're- well... Surprised.

That's what happened with Irish newcomer (somewhat) Maverick Sabre.

Wouldn't think he had that voice coming out of him, but he does. Never judge a book...
First heard his covers of Sam Cooke & Ray Charles and then some of his own music:

Definitely worth a listen.

His covers:

Yes, No, Maybe?

pretty centerpiece

I don't know when or how it happened, but I finally started appreciating flowers.
I remember in the past, when I was gifted flowers, I would quickly pass them on to whoever wanted them or quite frankly, just dumped them in the trash (I know, bad, bad, bad).

Even though, I'm on board the flower train and know how much they can add to a room, I think it's horrible that they die so fast (maybe I don't have a green thumb).  Which is why I think preserved flowers are tailor made for me.  Arranged in beautiful ceramic vases, they would make perfect centerpieces.

Watching: ReelAfrican

Monday, September 26

First there was Youtube, then Hulu - now I have a new internet destination to watch content, and it's all African.  That's super great because up until now it hasn't been easy getting good quality content.

As a first stop, I'll suggest Shuga:
Shuga is a hard hitting 3-part drama series that follows the lives and loves of a group of cool young students whose bright lives and fabulous futures are balanced on a knife edge due to their love of risk and danger. It’s a story of love, sex, Friday nights and the indelible marks we leave on one another. Shuga is based in Nairobi, Kenya; in the heart of East Africa. Shuga explores the issues of sexual relationships among urban youth against a background of continuing HIV/AIDS infections.

Slowly but surely, the African Film and TV industry is making strides.
