I came across an article online on the AfriNolly competition earlier this year but I didn't bother reading it since the word 'Nolly' had me assuming it was just for 'Nollywood film' producers. Never mind, next time.

I love those trees as well - red flowers seem to outnumber and dominate their green leaves.
Yep, some guy with keen eyesight spotted that scorpion in the grass right from up on the second floor on a building in the UNILORIN campus. He ran downstairs to take it out before it stung someone.
|TV/Movies / Re: Showcase - A Bit Of Ilorin (kwara) by ProudUSA: 9:21am On Mar 03|
Hahaha, that part with the headphones was funny!
Thanks for the kind encouraging words, man. No, no new camera just yet.
Nigeria is lovely, people are just always too busy to notice or take things for granted. Just stop, stay quiet, observe with a camera in hand and you'll see what I mean.

|Religion / Re: 2 Threats To Atheist Belief by ProudUSA: 9:40am On Sep 20, 2012|
Actually one of them (probably both) does, look it up.
What if aliens are more intelligent and look for origins of the energies running the universe based on concepts totally impossible to our knowledge of physics and they turn out not to be atheist? It doesn't really matter what they are so long as they also exist as creatures existing within the same confines of our universe.
Creating artificial life actually means you couldn't create the real one. The best we can do is use things already created even right down to atoms, particles and cells. Plus given the statement "God teaches man what man knew not", man would be stuck to having ideas generated time after time in his mind. The theory of evolution like growth of organisms and existence needs something to work - constant change from one state to the next. When you think about it, everything in our universe tends to rely on movement or change from one state to the next. The big question is what is causing all this change, it can't be residual energy from the BigBang because then energy or force from somewhere else needs to have been impacted from yet another source or origin causing the BigBang. It's been baffling scientists for ages (adding to confusing between theories of relativity and quantum physics).
It's human nature to believe in something whether people call it religion or scientific ideas, in the end it winds up to the ultimate end. In the past when someone had the knowledge to do things no-one could understand, it would be called miracles. Today they'd be scientific facts.
So you have your beliefs friend, others have theirs.
|Religion / Re: 2 Threats To Atheist Belief by ProudUSA: 6:53am On Sep 20, 2012|
No need to be scared of your belief, son.
No wonder it's said it's logical to assume humans are illogical. A little thinking helps the brain, that's what it's for.
|Religion / Re: Why Don't Christians Fight When Jesus Is Insulted? by ProudUSA: 5:13am On Sep 20, 2012|
Don't be fooled - racist undertones and a history of US leaders and friends attacking and bombing other countries has led to the general responses worldwide to the hate-filled film.
Just imagine a white person making a movie calling Martin Luthor King (not even Jesus yet) a love-vendor who taught African-Americans to be violent drug-taking gangsters then someone showing it on TV in a place like Harlem.
|Religion / 2 Threats To Atheist Belief by ProudUSA: 5:04am On Sep 20, 2012|
"Two long term threats to the atheist belief in no God are:
1. the belief that humans can one day create artificial life
2. the belief in the existence of intelligent extraterrestrial aliens.
"This would be dangerous because if you believe humans can create artificial life and that there are beings more intelligent than humans then eventually either you or your future descendants will come round to believing in a Supreme Being above all others creating all life.
"Thank God the rest of us are still intelligent enough to appreciate the natural instincts acknowledging a Creator."
|Computers / Re: Microsoft Copied Someone's Idea For Their Surface Tablet Design?? by ProudUSA: 5:26pm On Sep 04, 2012|
The IT industry's built on companies copying one another.
Anyone seen the movie "Pirates of Silicon Valley"?
The whole game is about who pays for and obtains the patent for the idea. A lot of patents aren't owned by the people who originate the ideas.
|Computers / Microsoft Copied Someone's Idea For Their Surface Tablet Design?? by ProudUSA: 11:37pm On Sep 03, 2012|
Wow, wow, wow Microsoft too?:
At least they can say they only derived inspiration from the guy's concept.
|TV/Movies / Re: Movie Trailer Of The International Action Comedy "Streets Of Calabar" by ProudUSA: 2:33pm On Sep 03, 2012|
I've seen clips of old Nigerian tv series like New Masquerade, Samanja, Bassey & Co. and so on and I believe they were truly talented, professional actors skilled in their craft far more creative and believable than many Nollywood home videos produced today.
I don't think those old series had high budgets for their quality work.
You don't need millions to tell a good story.
There should be many creative Nigerians out there waiting to make their mark and possibly the current producers will eventually get better.
|TV/Movies / Re: Who Has Watched This Combined Film Called "IP MAN" . by ProudUSA: 2:24pm On Sep 03, 2012|
There isn't really a 'part 3', that was a different movie about the same person by different people.
The first part's truly the best one.
|TV/Movies / Re: Who Has Watched This Combined Film Called "IP MAN" . by ProudUSA: 9:41pm On Aug 28, 2012|
It is a very well-made enjoyable movie, a biopic, about Ip Man, Bruce Lee 's martial arts master. It stars Donnie Yen as as the character Ip Man amidst his life adventures before and during the World War 2 occupation of China by Japanese troops.
It's a fun movie even without the fantastic martial arts featured (The Raid just narrowly beat its 'wow!' factor).
Ip Man was a grandmaster in the martial arts of Wing Chun named after the woman who originated the style. Wing chun is also Sammo Hung's liked style and he choreographed the fights then starred in Ip Man 2. Ip Man is credited with spreading the Wing Chun style around the world and famous taught Bruce Lee who would later go on to further develop the techniques into his own Jeet Kune Do.
Interestingly, Donnie Yen, star of Ip Man and Hong Kong's top action star today, learnt his martial arts from his mother as well who was a grandmaster. Plus Donnie Yen is considered the closest to Bruce Lee by many, in terms of speed and technique.

|TV/Movies / Re: The Raid Redemption Dvd Is Out by ProudUSA: 9:59pm On Aug 27, 2012|
The Raid has been called the best action film of the decade by many. The last time we had such seriously mean martial arts action must have been Ip Man.
There's really no need for a Hollywood remake of The Raid.
The movie actually features Indonesian silat martial arts not kung fu (Chinese).
It was directed by A Welsh man who relocated to Indonesia with his Indonesian wife.
The movie was an independent product which then had its marketing/distribution rights bought by Sony (of the Kung Fu Hustle fame).
