The Duet, A Dramatisation

This edition gives you an in-depth look at the dramatisation of “The Duet”, a book by Toki and Damola Mabogunje. Not only do I recount what exactly the show was like (complete with pictures), I also explain the inspiration behind some of the poems that became my favourites in the performance. A must read!

The City of Sin

What happened in Vegas stayed in Vegas, that is until I came along. In this edition, I walk you through some of the glamorous hotels on the Las Vegas Strip, and introduce you to some of the magnificent shows that we watched. But don’t worry, it’s all PG. It was a family trip after all.

This month, I focus loosely on “Nigerian problems.” I talk about a recent scandal, my theory on how such scandals are birthed, and finally I introduce you to a new blog by a friend of mine as he works to solve one of his Nigerian problems. (February 2013)

This month I talk about internet browsing. I rant about the common mistake people seem to be making these days, and introduce you to a bunch of artistic projects I discovered over Christmas and the New year: many of them involving other members of DeviantArt (which I talked about last month).

This month I keep it brief. I talk about the most popular online social artists network, why I use it, and what I like about it. I also introduce you to a comedy club in Los Angeles, and finally regale you with some thoughts on my favourite anime, as well as on the death of chivalry. (November 2012)

Oh no! A bit of my OCD with vocabulary comes out in this edition as I talk about the value of knowing the right term and how I would very much love to defeat you in Words With Friends. Read up, catch up, and join the fun and perhaps you and I could do a word battle very soon! But before we do that, jump on our Facebook page and click “Like”. Do it. DO IT NOW! (April 2012)

Spring break is here, and I’m finally doing some writing. In this edition, I take a look at the Kony 2012 phenomenon that has taken the internets by storm, as well as introduce you to a few other new things as well – like the new design for theredstringblog.com. :) (March 2012)

I’m back in the U.S, and the first thing I did was to travel around the east coast tri-state. Visiting New York, Washington, and then returning to Philadelphia. I talk about why I’m writing this blog, my visit to the Philly Zoo, and of course make a tribute to Steve Jobs (who just died) and my Grandfather (who’s turning 80). (October 2011)

Good news! The Internet here in Nigeria has improved once again. Thanks to that, I’ve been spending a lot more time on Facebook, and seen a few things that just piss me off. But otherwise, I’ve been attending a lot of very interesting plays. Read all about it, in this edition. (May 2011)

I’m back! – and it’s not half as bad as I expected. Internet’s improved, my entire state has improved, and the book dramatisation was awesome! But that’s a story for a different edition. For this one, I introduce you to a few new books I’ve picked up and leave you with a poem to woo that special someone this valentines day. (February 2011)
