...sometimes Music and Movies don't mix!

Watching the Dark Knight for the 3rd time I was joined by my elder sister who has the knack for asking too many questions about movies she would never watch.

- Oh, that’s BATMAN!

She says..

- Yes it is.

I reply...

- Why is he doing that?

- ‘cos he is a hero

- But he’s hurting them…

She exclaims…

- They’re bad people I reply

- Well that’s not very ‘hero-like’ is it?

To my relief she remembers she is cooking and leaves. However she returns later with yet another barrage of incessant questions much to my dismay

- Who’s that, and what happened to his face?

- Harvey Dent a.k.a Two Face. He was burnt.

She paused and proceeded in a enquiring tone…

- ….Two Face Shakur?

I smiled in silence.

Get Down On It!

R2Bees, 'I Dey Mad OH!' resonates from the speakers.
she took to the dance floor, her jewellery shining, her smile widening.
her enthusiasm, overwhelming.
her moves made my eyebrows inch closer to my hairline.
she was bobbing like a snake and shaking like a leaf.
as she 'went down' her arms reached for the sky and her bottom almost touched the ground!
shouts and whoops echoed from her peers, shock and disbelief evident from mine.

she has told me on many an occasion, 'the music you young people listen to today is trash, nothing like the good 'rhythms' of the old days. how can you even dance to it?'

Once she catches her breath all ask my grand-aunt the same question.
