50 songs we heard at Palmwine Festival hosted by Show Dem Camp

Great people,

How’s the resolution palaver coming?

Hehe. All the best.

So,

Remember sometime last year when we were making noise about the #PalmWineMusic EP released by Show Dem Camp?  Well, they decided to throw the #PalmWineFestival in late December last year. Word reaching us from folks in town and IJGBs was that it was a total and lit event. One IJGB said, after all the spending she did, it was the last and cheapest show she attended that actually made her feel really happy to be back home. Something like that. I was watching her dance to Funbi or BOJ, or maybe it was when Black Magic was performing. No, I think it was when MI came up after we had Ikon and Lynxxx, Dija, Femi Leye or so.

Total shout out to the SDC crew!!! Hell yeah, they got that yeah. Folks were grooving right from the beginning. Payback started the show, (remember Payback from Young Kulture’s 6th edition at Sao Cafe? Remember the name). Then we had tunes from these trio in the image below. I got them(their) names, but it has skipped me. Of which, if only you knew what they were saying on stage at this point.

Anyways, this post is about the beautiful compilation made by @88factor a few days before the festival containing about 70 songs from all the performers at the event. The set is amazing for days!!!!!

Pulse NG has the inside scoop on pictures. 

Enjoy!

Peace, Palmwine & Feel Good Vibes.

10 New Year Resolutions for the Resolutionless

New Year, New Me.

STFU.

Allow people enjoy things abi? My take on resolutions, is… “that thing you know you should stop or do that if you stop or start doing, your life is going to CHANGE”. And that’s the thing right there with resolutions, people would actually stick to them if only people weren’t wired to resist change.

Question now becomes how do you convince the body to stick to change. Mind and/or body. Just the way a kleptomaniac really plans and wants to change, convincing yourself that you can survive without a certain habit… or by picking a certain habit is the real deal here.

Anyways, all the best to those with resolutions, kudos to you and remember, the trick is to accept the change. If you can go far in your mind and envision life with the change, maybe you will be able to stick to it this year. To those without resolutions, really? You don’t have to do ‘New Year, New Me’ but come on there has to be set paths you plan to go on this year.

None?

Please email me, we need to see a shrink for you.

If the matter is more of you have no idea what to resolute about, well, we are many. I plan to make some changes this year, thing is I’m not sure where. This would be a lot easier if Heaven played our tape from the previous year just as the clock turns 12 on New Year’s Eve and we can see our fuck ups but we will talk about misuse of spiritual resources some other day.

All good, here are some few things you can resolute on.

  1. Start a meditation routine Lol. Go Yoda up!
  2. Learn something new every dayThis one makes sense. As per it is almost achievable. Wiki has a featured article mailing list but this starts another issue. You guessed it? Clicking to read those mails. Smh. You can try watching a TED talk everyday or listen to The Moth podcasts. Good stuffs.
  3. Pick a hobby. Sleeping isn’t one. Solving maths is.
  4. Play some more. Now we’re talking. Obviously if you aren’t working enough, then sit down and get work done instead. If you are, remember the brain works best when it is allowed to de-tangle, return to a relaxed state and then start working again. Ask Pinky.
  5. Write a business plan/model. Hmmm. Hmmmmmm. A lil guideline as follows, take a business idea i.e. leather shoes for goats. To write a business plan here, answer the following.

a) Customer segments – Who are my customers. and not just goats, ghast to identify the segment of goats you want to sell to.
b) Value proposition – What are you solving for them? Do they care?
c) Communication – How do I relate/communicate with each of my customer segment. Some goats like email, some like farm news. Ghast to know how to reach each segment
d) Relationship – Now on each segment, you also have to know if you going to be friendly with them or make it strictly professional or just be wacking them. Understand the kind of relationship you will build with them
e) Revenue – You have to know whether this business is going to be a transactional something (one offs) or a recurring something
f) Key resources – Now you have to find out the key raw materials you will use to perform the business.
g) Key activities – The key activities as well
h) Key partners – and the key partners you need to work with i.e. suppliers, distribution etc
i) Cost structure – Very hard. How you come about the cost of your product/service.

If you need help with writing a business plan, hola, I know a few people that will offer you FREE consultation in the community.

6ix. Read books. For real. Reading tweets and IG memes isn’t enough. You have to ghast to sit and try crunch a story inside your head. Maybe you can start with erotica if books are not your thing. I say erotica because you really have to conjure up, in your brain, a lot of what the book is saying, which is really the point of reading, exercising the brain
7. Be gratefulStop being a bitch. Be nicer to life. It will be nice to you as well. Although, I approve of being nice with a bat stick trailing on the ground behind you.
8. Stop procrastinating. Hmmm. On Your Own on this. I’ll explain tomorrow.
9. Do planks… Or some body exercise of some sort. Idea is to live long enough to enjoy this world… and to really enjoy it means you can actually walk or jog in the old age time, not be moving about with wheel chair, unable to move without help and etc. Ask them old folks, money really isn’t it at that point as much as how to actually enjoy the money. So exercise. And by the way, does bedmatics count as exercise? Enlighten us in the comments below.
10. Increase your emotional intelligence. There’s this awakening going on in the world, or rather it’s more like, we are realizing that we are awakening or we’ve been awakening for a while now. Anyways, point is, increasing your EQ sets you up to live and enjoy life better… because you will be able to deal with people better… and we all know just how people are the only things wrong with this earth. Except you of course.

Ok, that’s 10 things you can resolute on this year. Remember, the idea isn’t to force your mind/body to start doing these things. Idea is to gently convince yourself that the changes work for you in a way that you can always continue with the iranu you actually want to get down to do.

This year, we are going to be having new experiences that will be tailored around developing sound and better life habits. For real. Mentioned exercise earlier… we could just as well run a 4.20km during the 420 festival this year. Yeah? Hashers do it every month in Lagos. Run and drink beer…. or from resolution #6, we can start a movie club instead of a book club. I mean, it’s almost reading, it’s just being acted out.

Wishing us all a good and fruitful 2018.
Peace, Love and Cuddles.

From Neil deGrasse Tyson to Bill Gates, plenty of geniuses admit to enjoying pot…

Hi Darlings. So I did NOT write this piece myself. It was written by someone called DJ Reetz, who is a writer (for the Hemp Connoisseur Magazine) and a member of the cruis3control community, Yankee Region. I found it interesting and thought to share.

7 tested ways to snap back from a failed relationship.

This entry is from ‘Athena’, and she gives us some tried & trusted tips to bouncing back from a relationship, whatever the contract is.

Enjoy.


Let’s start with a few points to note:

  • A) The tips below are applicable to both sexes. However if as a man you choose to follow through, note that you will most likely be judged or written off as gay. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but brace yourself.
  • B) Experience shows that these tips apply to majority of the relationship types. So whether it’s a broken engagement or a fuckbuddy contract gone wrong, I’ve got you covered. Not applicable to marriage though. Thanks and God bless.
  • C) All the tips discussed have been tested by and have worked for ME. No scientific theories were utilized to arrive at them. So try them out at your own peril, and if anything goes wrong, instead of trying to hunt me down just return to tip #1 and start again. It’s bound to work at least once in your lifetime😁
