Only In Kenya

Those who know me know that I not only love great music of all kinds but also great toons such as power puff girls, shaolin showdown and mucha lucha. Here is a flash animation that combines both… The “Only in Kenya” flash animation with the really cool lion and equally cool tiger, who’s face incidentally…

Kenya Dig It?

I found a very interesting t-shirt design design on the Busted Tees website. This particular design is called ‘Kenya dig it?’ Interesting play on words from the 70s disco/funk era. What’s even funnier is the actual website description of the tee. It goes in part as follows… “Busted Tees has teamed up with The Republic…

Rap Music and the Decline of the Black Family

In the US, the African-American family is failing! This is especially evident when one walks around some of the lower income African-American communities in some of the major cities. Although there are a number of reasons for this decline, the two major factors that stand out for me as perpetuating this trend are the pervasiveness…

Virtual Earth vs. Google Maps. Bring it on!

The boys (and girls) at Google don’t waste much time do they? In response to Microsoft, Google too has now released their version of the Google Maps called Hybrid which also overlays labels with aerial satellite photos. Now if only they can add more detail to the maps then Ill be even more impressed. One…

Virtual Earth vs. Google Maps. Let the Games Begin!

Microsoft just came out with the beta version of their online mapping service, virtual Earth. Right off the bat I must say that I am really impressed, much, much more impressed than I was with Google Maps. Now, though I haven’t had time to really mess around with it, there are two things that already…

East, West, Tacos Guaymas is Best

As far as good, authentic style Mexican food goes, Tacos Guaymas is rather underated however in my book it is numero uno and I must tell you why… Taco Guaymas has two spots in Broadway Avenue in Seattle’s Capital Hill neighborhood district. For you Nubian Underground (and other hip-hop) heads who are not familiar with…

Why I Stopped Listening to Hip-Hop Part 1

Before I start ranting, I need to point out one thing… I have loved hip-hop and have always been a head from day one… from the time when I first heard the Sugar Hill Gang’s “Rapper’s Delight”, I was instantly hooked. I also remember very clearly that during the 80s, I was one of very…

The Impetus

Hey ya! After a little research, a couple of downloads and a day or so of tweaking and configuring I finally have my blog, Andaialogue up and running. The current design is rather generic (read, not in the Nubian Underground style) but that will change in the next couple of weeks or so. So, what’s…
