Sit, listen and share

The meanders of the plot in the story left most of the audience totally confused.  However, no one was more perplexed than creator of this active participation show. It became a case of too many cooks spoil the broth.

As they all got the hang of storytelling it was fulfilling just to sit and listen and share.  Who would have thought it was so hard to tell a story.

The session came to an end and there was a resounding, “Oh no is it finished already”, from all the participants.



The Black Panther – an Assay Test for Vibranium or Black People?

From the time I saw the promos of the Black Panther film, I was excited to watch it and for sure my family and I were there to see it in 3D.  I confess, I don’t think I have heard of it as a comic, but I love Marvel and Sci-fi films so my introduction to it as a movie just blew me away.  The message of a strong and empowered black African women warriors of the Kingdom of Wakanga was great.  The King and most of the Royal family were dealing responsibly with choices they made regarding the ownership of Vibranium.  With such a hi-tech laboratory and a clever Princess who was a scientist, the mountain ore’s assay test must have been a welcome asset. The consequences therefore of such a valuable mineral resonated a timely wake-up call to this wholesome and hidden country being pulled on to the international stage.

No story is complete without the relationships elements of family, nations, social conscience and equality.

The film oozes QUALITY, in fiction meets real life, in scratching the African and African-American and Afro-Caribbean relationship dialogue.  Who are we to each other? What’s stopping us being connected?  Is this the test?

I applaud MARVEL the makers of this film and the actors for a superb job.  It was exemplary in the story line, the quality of the acting, directors and the producers, the sets, the locations, the costumes, the music, the sound effects, the financiers and everyone involved.  I sound like I have just received an Oscar for watching it and I am thanking everyone.

Go see Chadwick Boseman as the Black Panther, Michael B Jordan as Eric Killmonger, Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia, Danai Gurira and many others.   I am going to watch it again and again.


Duel- The Three Musketeers

As I watched the film of Three Musketeers, I laughed at the antics of the young man, who had come to Paris to join them.  He so wanted to be a Musketeer that he was challenging anyone he had a disagreement with to a duel, actually there were four men.  And for the coincidence, who do you think were the majority he would be fighting, The Three Musketeers.

I know it was an adventure-com but I still thought it was well written and acted.  Despite his seemingly blundering ways he got to the right people after all.  He became an ally not a foe and there was no duel.  Isn’t it funny how things sometimes work out for good.



How meaningless the sound of the music,

When each generation create their beat,

Another generation thinks it’s a racket,

Deafening to the ears, disturbing to the mind,

Would you turn that thing off!

Would you turn that racket down!

The response

Up Up Up or Down Down Down

Is the power of the dial.

Quiz ends well

The atmosphere was tense in the studio, and in all the houses around the country,  This was the final of the quiz show that had the nation talking, tweeting and arguing.  Both contestants were extremely good and people were divided as to who they wanted to win.

Gabriel had both hands on his buzzer.  April settled for the one hand position. There was no hesitation, both hit their buzzers at the same time according to the scientific measurements installed for fairness and transparency. They both shouted out the correct answer before the host could choose one of them to speak, the studio audience began to cheer loudly.

This had never happened in the history of the ‘Get Your Million Pound Show’.  Now the was a shout of “Share, share, Share ” coming from the audience.  The producers were confused but saw the benefit of fair play and the effect this would have on their ratings and gave each contestant £500,000.
