Hot Out The Oven!


Just released yesterday - the new Common video featuring beautiful people - Kerry Washington, Alicia Keys, Kanye West and Serena Williams. The video for the song titled 'I Want You' was directed by Kerry Washington (who is rumoured to be Common's new chic). Check it out:



Here are some pictures from the video shoot:






I have the song here for you to grab!





Not sure if everyone has heard about Emirates' new First Class Suites on their Boeing 777-300ER's and 777-200LR's? It was highlighted as blogworthy by Naijanaz.

Forget the perks oh:

  • Fine leather and walnut with electric doors
  • 23 inch widescreen with the ice system
  • 1000+ channels of on-demand entertainment
  • In-seat laptop with email
  • Phone
  • Wireless remote control to control all functions in the suite
  • 78" fully flat bed with mattress and duvet


Another press release says:

These luxury suites also feature a dining table, built-in vanity table with mirror and overnight amenity kit. Extra luxuries include woollen blankets, hot towels, roomy wardrobes and even a special Do Not Disturb system.


The slogan says - Relax, you've arrived! Hmm I hope the passengers can choose when they want to get off the plane (i.e. in 3 weeks time or...)

yes Mona,

Trust mi, your blog makes for a decent read each and EVERY time. Funny you profiled the story on the Naij undergrad, the same piece was showcased on Pharell's blog http://bbcicecream.com/blog/2007/10/22/helicopter-ride-anyone/

...American's at their usual ignorant heights, took 'nuff shots at my man's ingenuity. I think it's highly commendable that this bright young man has been able to be extremely resourceful in such depravity.

Keep up the good work...!!

peeeaacee!!

I am so proud of Murtala's ability to create such a complex vehicle from meager parts. Unfortunately, public and private enterprise in Nija is yet to snatch up this man's skills.

I must publish my post that I wrote about this story as a positive (and sort of negative) about the Nigerian experience.

Damn... that guy is a born aeronautical engineer. Boeing or Airbus need to pick him up fast!

Isn't Kerry Washington dating/married to some white guy? Are we talking about the same KW? I was hoping for Alicia Keys to hook up with him. They'd be a fly couple.

Wow @ the Emirates'1st class lounge. Wonder how much a 1st class tix cost?

Mari said...

Mari took the words right out of my mouth - wondering how much the ticket would cost to fly on that plane. That is some serious lounging! I'm not even a Common fan like that but I guess that video was very interesting to an extent. Need to go catch up with the other stuff you have on here!!!

Mari said...
