How To Train Your Dragon (Movie Review)

Hiccup is supposed to be like other Vikings (Yes, his name is hiccup) in Burk. But he's not. You see all Vikings are born to kill Dragons..well..except hiccup. Everytime the dragons raid and the older Vikings attack, Hiccup comes along and causes a hiccup. During one of the raids, hiccup uses a kind-of catapult and shoots down a Night Fury: the most dangerous dragons known. Hiccup's Father (the chief of the clan) has to go on an expedition so he leaves Hiccup in the hands of a Dragon Trainer who teaches kids how to kill Dragons because that's what all Vikings on Burk are born to do.




Before Hiccup's first Dragon-killing-training session, he roves around in the woods and finds the Night-Fury he hit tied up beside a rock. He tries killing the Night-fury with a knife and realizes he cannot just do it. So he releases the Night-fury and it flies away. After more failed Dragon-killing sessions, Hiccup stumbles upon the Night-Fury stuck in a valley from a broken wing and decides to keep the Night-Fury as a pet and names it 'Toothless'


Hanging out with the Night-fury, Hiccups learns a lot of tricks to tame Dragons or send them away. He shortly becomes the Talk-of-the-town thanks to his dragon taming tricks. One of his mates in the dragon-killing camp follows Hiccup after one of the sessions and discovers the Night-Fury. She immediately wants to kill the Night-Fury but hiccup takes her for a ride and they find out there is this really really big dragon hiding in the mountains and all the smaller dragons drop off all they steal to this dragon. 


The Chief finally comes back from his expedition and hears all the word about Hiccups recent tricks in taming dragons. Hiccup comes tops of his dragon-killing class and faces his first test. To kill a real life Dragon. On the day of the Dragon killing, the whole town gathers round and hiccup starts by taming the dragon but his father retorts and jumps into the ring. The dragon chases hiccup and holds him to the ground, about to go for the kill. Toothless hears hiccups shouts and flies to the rescue. Toothless tries to rescue Hiccup and gets chained by the Viking clan.


The Vikings then follow toothless's trail to the huge dragon's lair. Then an epic battle begins. The dragon turns out to be as huge as the mountain and burns all the Viking boats preventing them from escape. Hiccup and his friends come in with a couple other dragons and save the day. At the end of the movie, Everyone at Burk has dragons for pets and have fun and all.


What do I think about the movie

The animation was superb and I like the Viking accent. It seems to be a mixture of Scottish and Irish. The camera work was also really good for the parts where the dragon has to go between hills and through caves.

9 reasons you shouldn’t join twitter


One of my favourite blog topics has to be social networking and online etiquette. This blog post is about reasons you shouldn't join twitter. So Twitter is not for you if……

  1. You don't have a life…..one of my favourite things to tweet about is what's going on in my life with the common hashtags #nowplaying and #noweating or I just generally tweet about stuff that's been happening to me or stuff I'm doing.
  2. You do not constantly engage in conversations. Hashtags were developed for conversations about certain events or topics e.g. #worldcup for the ongoing worldcup.
  3. You spend all your internet time on the real-web. Statistics show that most tweeps {what we call twitter users} use more mobile applications than the twitter site.
  4. You do not stumble on a lot of interesting stuff online. I just love to share fun and interesting stuff I find online with other tweeps.
  5. You do not like to share or keep-up with news. Twitter has become a news finding and sharing tool. With the new trending topic algorithm, only important and currently important stuff trend.
  6. You do not watch TV, videos or listen to Music or Read. I really wonder if anyone can have a life without doing any of the 4 aforementioned stuff. The hashtags #nowplayin, #nowwatching and #nowreading are very important hashtags we use to share information.
  7. You do not have friends on twitter. Apart from tweets about my life. I constantly tweet my friends to know what's going on in their lives and how they are faring generally.
  8. You do not greet people! With the simple 'GOOD MORNING TWEEPS' tweet, I announce to everyone that I'm awake and ready to start a new day!
  9. You don't like a limit or conserving space. Twitter's 140 character limit continually limits the amount of characters per tweet. If you don't like to save space or you tend to talk too much on social network updates, twitter is definetly not for you
If the reasons above do not apply to you….then join twitter and follow me


Do you have any other reasons why you think twitter is not for certain people…Please add your reason in the comments section below.

Sarcastic Tips to making it in the Nigerian Music Industry


This is almost guaranteed 100% to help up-coming artistes in the music industry. Note: I said Sarcastic tips.

1.       Sign a record deal with Mo-hits, Kennis, Storm 360, Empire Mates, Trybe Records. They’ve been so long in the industry they know everybody from the Grandfathers, to the Fathers and the Sons….yet to be born.

2.       Get Cobhams, TY Mix or Don Jazzy(Again) to do a beat for you.


3.       Knock about 3 women up and sing about it. (2 face – implication)

4.       Do a remix of a Jay-Z or 50 cent song even if it only features them (Banky’s EbuteMetta and Modenine’s Comedy Money) I still love you guys though.


5.       Sing gospel  music first then start singing about booze or money. Better still start from the church choir! (the list is so long…I don’t think I can exhaust it)

6.       Post your videos on notjustok, sturvs and bellanaija.


7.       Sing about the Bentley you don’t have (D-Banj)

8.       Get someone to do a really nice beat and then say rubbish on it (Bracket – No time “No time eh, Better thing no they last eh”)


9.       Make sure all the girls in your videos wear bikinis. If they don’t wear bikinis make sure we can see almost half their boobs. Your song will be  a hit in weeks.(Why are y’all shouting Dbanj now?)

10.   Shoot your videos in England or South Africa and put some white girls in your video!


11.   Create a facebook fan page and invite everyone. If they don’t like your song they’ll unlike you though.

12.   You need a catch phrase. (Naeto C – Yes boss, D-banj – I’m D Banj, Don Jazzy – Don jazzy again, Wande Coal –Wande Coal)


13.   Play CDs at all your event performances. Razz audiences just love this.

14.   Join a road tour with Glo or MTN. You will surely hammer.


15.   Get a foreign (probably American) artiste on one of your track (Tuface ft. R.Kelly – Flex. Even if R.Kelly has never met Tuface before)

16.   Put M.I on your track everyone will listen to it because M.I is on it. All people want to see is ft. M.I and they will surely listen to your tracks.

17.   Start very young. Okay this one is serious.

Can the Super Eagles win the South korean Match? {POLL}

Please take part in the poll below

KAITA - New meanings for an old word

So after Sunny Kaita's stupid actions on Wednesday, we have decided to change the meaning of KAITA. Thanks to all the tweeps and facebookers who helped compile this.

Kaita -  A man who single handedly hinder the hope of his country for reason best known to him. "Kaita" can be use in place of words like Jeopardy, Hinder, Sabotage, Disrupt, Antagonist, fool etc. Examples are Don't kaita what we have been building for 11 yrs in one day. Don't be a Kaita, That event was totally kaitaed. 


What do you think? did we get it right?

No More Bieber



It's amazing how the Internet can turn a formerly unknown teenager into a world phenomenon. Well, Thanks to twitter's new trending topics algorithm. Justin Bieber is no longer trending. 


I have no problem or hate for Justin Bieber, Its just that twitter has become a place where a lot of us go to get information about what's happening around the world. But for the past weeks and months everytime we go to twitter.com, Justin Bieber is trending. Most times people trend when they do something spectacular of when something happened to them. Like Kathryn Bigelow winning many Oscars for the Hurt locker. 


So in the beginning when I saw Bieber trend I actually clicked the search term so I could find out what had happened to him again. Then I get disappointed. All these jobless girls and a few pedophiles tweeting their love.


The incredibly smart guys at twitter realized this wasn't going to make twitter a breaking news site anymore, So they changed the algorithm which stopped Bieber from trending. Now only things that are immediate will trend. Thank You for keeping sanity BizStone.

June 12: Mass Anti-IBB tweets

It is no longer news that IBB {Yes, Ibrahim Babangida} has announced plans to contest in the 2011 general elections. In fact, my sources say the PDP has endorsed IBB has its candidate. This just goes to show the kind of people in the PDP. Power to the people my left foot! More like power to the hungry and greedy old people!

Also, A few weeks ago, IBB in an interview said that Nigerian youths are not capable of running Nigeria. I would like to have IBB know that according to the last census 45% of voters are in the Youth Bracket. Before I continue I would like us to take a trip down memory lane. 1993 to be precise.

In what was Adjudged the freest and fairest election in Nigeria, M.K.O. Abiola emerged winner in the General Elections. 24 hours later IBB and his assholes {yes im pissed!} decided to annul the elections. Throwing the entire populace (except the assholes} into confusion and chaos.

Why Am I pissed?

At this time in 1993 my mother was heavy with me. 7 months to be precise. She recalls that at that time they couldn't go out. They couldn't work and they couldn't make money. Thank You IBB for the pain you put my parents and other parents through.

But its in the past now

Before you let me finish your life online (yes you the reader!} I know you're already saying its in the past. Well, the past affects the future. Post 1993, corruption rose its ugly head because people had to make money somehow no thanks to the falling Naira-Dollar rate. Yes that's why its N150 to $1. Its IBB's fault.

We cannot sit and watch this happen

As patriotic Nigerians, it is time for us to stand up and talk about this crap IBB is about to do. If IBB wants to come back and fix the problems he created, well…he can return all the money from the Swiss banks and appear at another Tribunal sitting. IBB can also publicly apologise to Nigerians and M.K.O's family for all his rubbish and then hang himself on a tree. Better still he should jump off the third mainland bridge!!!

So….we're organizing tweets

Thanks to the guys behind twitter and the trending phenomenon, on June 12, 2010, We'll be taking IBB online. Basically, We want you to say exactly what you feel about IBB's election campaign and all with the hashtag #saynotoibb. If you're really pissed, As I am, you can use the hashtag #ibbsucks or #noassholesinnigeria or #leaveusaloneibb or #nigeriansdontwantibb.
