After52ofthem/ 80toshowforit

24 06 2008

After a whole 52 of them, it feels like I have been dropping hits like Timbaland only that i ain’t able to charge the amount of moolah he asks for at every beat…. (ok, some form of narcissism, just a little, doesn’t sound that bad does it now?)

No wonder Michael Jackstyle can’t really afford him…or maybe, Timbo just doesn’t like MJ?

Truth of the matter was that I actually started dropping words on the B2B joint mainly to just find a uneek way to “express” me’self…

Didn’t have similar problems doing so, and I thought with all the questions that she had asked me about life, love, men, cars, sex, women, humour, literature, expression, lips, hips, neo-soul music, movies, more about men, and also more about women, hobs, professionalism, and a ton of more things that I have “expressed” me’self here at Back2Basics make it a little bit weird to actually notice that a whole year (tmrw, i shall have been a blogger for 365days and counting) has passed by without me actually missing a beat…

And also the number of questions i have asked her about sex, style, dreadlocks, women, men, parenting, fear of expression, being found out, patience, wicked urges, unfaltering pestering, nice short skirts, very sexy legs, buff bodies, very patient love-making, deep listening, lotsa laughing, not giving a shyte, watching, listening(again) and learning, a little clairvoyance, and a few other things too, i am again surprised that i have dropped words on so many things, and there are still other things that need to be expressed… (in due time)

In the beginning, I thought that you had to be really truthful about what was going on on blogger, till keitetsi dropped by and tripped with her drama; then realized that you can be that unusual extroverted loner who does get to know peeps and lets them in only as far as he /she wants to….

I am humbled by the fact that many of you do still pass by and er, complain when I don’t drop any words here….(Val, AntiPop, Cheri what it is?)

So, in true B2B fashion, I would like to say a simple basik thank you for all the peeps who have dropped comments here at Back2Basics!

Ok, now that is outta the way….

Blogging is simply about reading other peoples blogs and allowing what they have written to go through your mind like they are chatting you up in a very laid-back way…. Lest of course you are Aivan and you need to grab a coupla drinks and laugh at that last line too… (LOL)

Also, blogging is about sometimes finding a form of release, (just sometimes) and not overtly letting people in to your life(s) in that creepy sorta way, but rather showing a different side, and hoping that one, two, or three other peeps can relate to /with you!

And one last thing, blogging is certainly about creativity, a little truth, a whole load of sarcasm, some drama, and yeah, definitely some humour…

Oh, that is unless you are a deep blogger….

Unless, you would like to share an opinion with me about what you think blogging is all about, hmmmn? (Tandra…, Carlo…, Tumwi…, Sy…, Eb…, 3…, Princess…, DeTambs…, )

Was listening to Dilated Peoples’ track “this-way” and Nappy Roots’ “sick&tired” they have nada to do with this post though!!

Guess i just like listening to them… They remind me of how life used to suck when i used to write stuff down elsewhere… Guess life does always get better too!!

very funny that nappy roots’ song will not stop playing in my head past few days…sick and tired of being sick and tired…

one of the best things about the blogville is finding people experiencing the same things as you. you can sigh with relief at finding you are normal after all. or just happen to have another psycho like you…

i think blogging is really whatever you want it to be. i hate rules, and think blogville should be free of them. a blog can be whatever you want it to be…tikwe? shallow, deep, humorless, gross…

24 06 2008

yeiiiiiii…a shout-out…I’m pleased…errmm gosh yeah…(wiping imaginary tears away)

For me blogging is about release….its kinda like a diary but not quite….I dunno..I am inviting myself to ramble on your page so you have been forewarned….

Why read some blogs…coz some are freaking hilarious..others sweet (btw where’s the rest of the know what I’m talking about..)..some you can actually relate to..its so wierd

24 06 2008
