Genge This Week

Your Way.

Vinnie Banton has this romantic single out. He seems to suggest that the way to a woman’s heart is accepting her as she is, and having her do things her way. I doubt that this is will fly with most African men, but it certainly is what many women want to hear. Keep it up Banton, this ones a hit.

TULIZA VIPI?

Willywhizz has this video online that in my own opinion is pedestrian. The artist has something to say, but he says it in no way that is different from what we have seen before. The production value of his video is basic. And the people in the video, especially the ladies don’t seem to want to be there.

“Hey!” by Just A Band

On a lighter note Just A Band’s “Hey!” has a video out that is entertaining as well as funny. I love the hand puppetry.

Just A Thought.

I just got done reading a book which really inspired me to stop kidding around and be a man. The book ends with a quote which I’d like to share with you.

“Don’t ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive, and then go do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”
– Harold Thurman Whitman

Last Week in Genge: Video Uploads.

Music has a way of feeding as well as draining the soul. Through this medium we neo-Kenyans have managed to express our feelings using all sorts of musical genre’s.

Missing My Baby by Amani

It is said that imitation is the greatest form of flattery so Dallas based Kenyan artist QStick decided to do a remix to Nonini’s hit “Si Lazima.”

Outsourcing Wombs and Websites.

This week on Oprah she had an show on people who decided to outsource wombs because they were not able to give birth to kids. I for one think that such a thing as this was inevitable given that we are becoming a global village, and that everybody now can just about outsource just about anything to any country.

So, what’s outsourcing anyway? My friend Webster defines it as; to procure (as some goods or services needed by a business or organization) under contract with an outside supplier

Before I say what I really think of this outsourcing womb business, I wanted to give you the reader, full disclosure:

I am in the process of having a website made through outsourcing that will enable people to pick out images of things in nature that look like letters, and put them together to form a word. Below is an example:

Burn All The Boats!

Hernando Cortés is an name that illicits a lot of anger among some people. But in my book he is a man whom we all need to learn from. In 1519, Cortés left the island of Cuba in search of Gold and Riches. Many had gone before him with similar dreams and had not succeeded, but Cortés was determined to go back to Cuba rich.

When Hernando Cortés landed on the South American coast he ordered his men to burn all the boats they had used to sail there from Cuba. Cortés eye was on the wealth of the Aztecs and nothing was going to stop him. After the boats were burnt there was no looking back. In the end, he attained his goal.

What is it that you want to be.

What thing have you wanted to accomplish?

What are you willing to do to make your dream’s come true?

Are you willing to look into your life and decide to take that daring step to burn your boat so that you will have no choice but to attain your goal?

As a child I remember that whenever I got home from school at the end of my school year, I would hand my report form to my father who would always glance at it and say, “Son, there is always room for improvement.”

I urge you to step back, and look at what you have or have not achieved then realize that there is always room for improvement.

According to wikipidea; blogging is (an abridgment of the term web log) is a website, usually maintained by an individual, with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events, or other material such as graphics or video. Entries are commonly displayed in reverse chronological order. “Blog” can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog.

So there you have it. I’m a blogger and i’m proud of being one! Oh yeah, and iBlog in Kenyanese.
