Mary J. Blige featuring Drake - The One

This is what you call a summer jam.

Stop looking for.. look for... I'mma the...One

Ever since Mary become happy, she rocks..literally.

Spring is suddenly here and my birthday is next week. So for some badly needed relaxation I'd be heading to Toro Safari Lodge in Kasane, Botswana for some sleep and animal watching.
Though it's only for two days, I'm sure my body will love me for the rest. These past months have been hectic with a new job that just doesn't let up and some personal problems. Mind and body is tired and it shows all over.
When I knew I wanted to go away for my birthday and that I felt like a safari holiday, I looked around for a citizen-friendly holiday package to the Chobe/Okavango area, but I was disappointed as the packages were more inclined towards the foreign travellers from countries like the US and the UK. It is bloody expensive to travel in my own country and the only affordable holiday is to camp and I HATE camping. I want a bed, a nice clean bathroom and a restaurant with a chef. I know, I'm spoilt but what can I say... It's what I want.
So to get that I had to really dig in my pockets and being in public service, the pockets won't that deep. Toro Safari Lodge come to my rescue with it's affordable chalet, game drive and boat cruise. I just wish that Botswana's Tourism board really looks into making travelling within the country affortable to the common man who wants to see his/her own country. It can't be good that the people who get to enjoy this beautiful country are the ones that come from the west and the few that are rich here.

'Mess Of Me' - Switchfoot (new single from new album "Hello Hurricane" - out November 10, 2009)

It's true, there is no drug to heal a soul, well maybe therapy.

Great stuff from Switchfoot, my all time favourite band.

Jay-Z - Run This Town - Official Music Video

Wooo Hoo, JZ's blueprint 3 rocks, first death to autotune was the shit and now he releases this, great stuff. I'm surprised that Rihanna can actually pull off the hard-core look.

She Ain't Got...(Swing Batta, Batta)

Swing batta, batta indeed.

The lyrics on this song are fantastic: you're a puppy on a leash
time to come back home
i done let 'chu out to play
but 'chu ain't playin' fair
you done meet this little stray
bringin' fleas 'round here
Hahahaha...Aint that funny

Seal - A change is gonna come 2008

I loved this song after hearing it on Eli Stone. Such a beautiful song. According to Wikipedi it was written as a protest song by Sam Cooke. He died not knowing that a change did come in the American Civil rights movement.

But it does have its truths even now.

Next month is Father's Day. A celebration for Fathers who actually take the time to raise their children. Here in Botswana we live in a society of Fatherless children. I think only 1% of dads actually parent while the rest just sire them.

When I think of Father's Day, I'm reminded of Jay-z's lyrics in his song 'Brooklyn (Go Hard)' ft Santogold, where he wrote: fatherless child, mama pulled double shifts; The sun don't come out for many, like Annie half orphan, mama never had an abortion papa sorta did, still I managed to live.

I grew up with an absent father who only appeared when he remembered he had children and it wasn't that often. And now my niece will have the same life. Of wondering why her father can't be there for her. Give her love, encouragement and a sense of knowing who her father is.

I know that my lack of love life due to trust issues goes back to my fatherless childhood. I know I can't put all the blame on my poor deceased father but it does start with him. He wasn't trustworthy. He didn't make me feel that I deserved a love of a man cause he didn't love me enough to stay. I wonder what needs to be done to stop this fatherless society? What makes men run when the women don't? I think that the debate that needs to be done during this month of Father's Day but to also give a hand of applause to the men who do stay and be fathers.

Dil Se - Chaiyya Chaiyya

I remember watchin this film a long time ago when I was still in High school and I couldn't get this song and this scene from my mind. Great beat, dancing.

I mean I'm afraid of heights and falling off but this song makes me want to be up there with them.

Great stuff

Great series with a great song- lucky by Bif Naked. I won't say I'm romantic but I fell hook line and sinker for this romance between Mick and Beth.
