Lagos Cinema Palava...

Going to the cinema in Lagos, in the evening and during holidays is a "no-no".

Why? - The most happen at the cinema.

If you're not sitting next to a talkative, you're sitting in front of that one who has seen the movie and has come again to be a spoiler, or you're sitting behind the one who's in the cinema hall to take selfies and fiddle with his/her phone during the screening of the movie - thereby disturbing you with the phone light.

Those who come late to the hall when the movie had begun, knowing so well that the hall is full and there's definitely no vacant back seat, will climb the stairs hoping to find a vacant seat, with their flashlight in your face ( and NO sorry will be said) then, they'll obstruct your view for about five, ten seconds or more as they decide whether or not to sit in front.

In the end, guess what? - they'll go down the stairs to seat in front. - As I do the worst to them in my mind (Slap, Kick, Punch, Break their legs... Arrrghh).

You also have those who "laugh out loud" at the lamest joke but can't laugh at the Oscar-winning joke 'cos it's beyond them. - And when did clapping become a thing? - The actor pulls a stunt and he get's a standing ovation just as the actor is about to say something worth the standing ovation. But then, they all continue to clap and analyze the stunt then miss out on what the actor had said.

All of the above listed are those I can tolerate. Those I can never tolerate, are those who have no idea about the movie they are watching then they begin to ask questions during the screening or drag religion and culture into a movie.

What does your pastor have to do with Passengers?

If your culture forbids Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis' Friends With Benefits, what's your business here?

So my perfect movie time at the cinema is in the morning (weekdays) or late night. then you have fewer people in the hall.

What ticks you off the most at the cinema - s.h.a.r.e with me in the comment section below.

#ThrowBackThursday - The Spot I Loved.

Watching Tv growing up was a luxury for me. Not because we never had one but because my gran'ma would rather listen to her transistor radio (Radio Lagos 107.5). So every opportunity I had to watch the Tv was Christmas.

So, every time I had to leave my gran'ma' for my parent's house I knew it was all going to be Tv, Tv, Tv, Tv...

Err, I loved the cartoons and all of the kiddies stuff on Tv back then but for some reasons, I couldn't explain why I was attracted to certain shows on tv. Shows like;
New Dawn with Funmi Iyanda
Live with Levi Ajuonuma (Though it was all serious stuff but something got me glued to it.)
Every Woman with Adesuwa Onyenukwe (Gosh! I love that pot like seat)
... and I loved AM Express on NTA with Sadiq Daba, Late Yinka Craig and Mariam Anozodo (My first Tv Crush).

Oh Yes!, there was something about Newsline on the NTA Network Service on Sunday Evenings (The only day of the week I enjoy watching the news with my Dad.)

In later years, I fell in l…

Danfo Chronicle – episode 1. – “Ojota to Omole – N300,000”

Danfo Chronicles –

Wait, you don’t know what danfo is?

Ok, Danfo is a yellow minibus with two black stripes that emerged in the 70s and has since then been the means of commercial transportation plying virtually every route within Lagos State. How the word “Danfo” did came about? I don’t know. But some say it means “Hurry” in Yoruba.

So, commuters who travel from their homes to their offices - or wherever their destination may be, sometimes engage in one conversation or the other with one another (total strangers). They talk politics, sports, social amenities, Music… (Yea! In that order). On rare occasions will you hear commuters talk fashion and movies.

I’ve decided to share conversations (relevant conversations) discussed in Danfos here on my blog and to get your 2cents about whatever topic discussed.

Let’s call this; Danfo Chronicle – episode 1. – “Ojota to Omole – N300,000”

The other day, on my way from Ojota to Omole, I joined this Danfo at the Ojota garage and while waiting fo…
