Yesterday, I went to see the magnificent film, Blood Diamond. An extra-ordinary piece of work. Leonardo Di Caprio who has never been my favourite actor marched strongly up my polls after the movie. He has this thing for giving his life for others in movies, however, which is why I never wanted to see him after 'The Titanic'. Africans like laspapi are fond of nice endings, not dying after going through so much. It's one of the reasons I'm crazy about Shawshank Redemption.
It was my baby, Storm's birthday, yesterday. She turned 21. You may see the poem I wrote for her in Verses in the Storm.
Stella Damasus-Aboderin will be featuring/starring in my next Stage Play, Anatomy of a Woman, at the Muson Centre. Date is Sunday the 25th of March, Times are 3pm and 6pm. There'll be more details and a flier of this available on this blog shortly. The play is dedicated to Storm.
ps. Stella's name isn't 'Damascus' as I've heard some say.
The discussion on the NIGERIAN SERIES will from today move to Solomonsydelle's after spending a week here. Let's keep it going. Solo'delle might just have found a way to circumvent the 'Nigerian' problem. She dropped very interesting suggestions here and will probably elaborate on her blog.
