Dang I've been slacking!!! No joke. Well doesn't mean I haven't been listening to music, just have no time to post it up here. Need a major breather for a sec... wheeeeeww..!

Today's song is one of my all-time favorite gospel classics: Send Out A Prayer by Anointed. I like their song God is all around too, guess I'll have to post it someday here. They are truly anointed I'll tell you that. Can never ever go wrong with them, EVER. I know they're a brother & sister duo group now but this song is off their old album The Call, when they were still a four person group. What do you call them again? Quad group??? Dunno lol! Anywhoos, you can check them out via their website link under the My Musicians link on the right.

Anyways, listen, enjoy, and be blessed. TGIF!!!! Have a great weekend! When in need, just send out a prayer!!!!

Gay Man Files $70M Suit Against Bible Publishers Over ‘Homosexual’ Verses

A homosexual man has filed a $70 million lawsuit against Bible publishers Zondervan and Thomas Nelson, alleging that their version of the Bible that refers to homosexuality as a sin violates his constitutional rights and has caused him emotional distress. Bradley LaShawn Fowler, an ex-con turned author, filed the federal suit in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan recently, the same day a judge refused to appint him a lawyer for his suit against Thomas Nelson.

“The Court has some very genuine concerns about the nature and efficacy of these claims,” the judge wrote.

Fowler, who is representing himself in both cases, claims that Zondervan manipulated Scripture by using the term “homosexuals” in 1 Corinthians 6:9 of their 1982 and 1987 revised edition Bibles. He also contends that the reference to homosexuality was deleted by the publisher in later versions without informing the public.

He alleges that since the older King James Version containing the term “homosexuals” is used by his family pastor, he has been outcast by his family.

The 39-year-old is suing the Grand Rapids publisher for compensation of 20 years of “emotional duress and mental instability,” he told WOODTV in Grand Rapids.

In a hand-written suit, Fowler lists all sorts of charges against Zondervan including malicious negligence, strict liability, malice, libel, and violating his civil rights. He filed a suit in June against Tennessee-based publisher Thomas Nelson on similar grounds. He’s seeking $60 million from Zondervan and $10 million from Thomas Nelson Publishing.

Zondervan issued a statement to The Christian Post that said they do not discuss ongoing litigation. The company’s spokesperson Tara Powers, however, pointed out that they only publish Bibles, not translate them. “Since Zondervan does not translate the Bible or own the copyright for any of the translations we publish, we are not in a position to comment on the merits of how a word should or should not be translated,” said Powers.

“We rely on the scholarly judgment of the highly respected and credible translation committees behind each translation and never alter the text of the translations we are licensed to publish. We only publish credible translations produced by credible biblical scholars,” she noted.

According to Fowler, Zondervan has 20 days to respond to the claims listed.


Shaywun's Input:

I swear, sometimes I feel people make up these stories!!! I honestly couldn't stop laughing from beginning to end. Is someone kidding me, where do they find these people o?!?!?! 20 years of which “emotional duress and mental instability"??? Where did he find time to sue two different publishers, from two very different states, with his emotional and mental problems? And then hand-written to say the least! Dude must be going through some type of mid-life crisis at 39. Jesus help us...

Anyway after reading this newspaper article, I wondered if I could have a case of my own so I got in touch with my lawyer and I have decided to sue every person within the vicinity of zipcodes 77036, 77073, 77096, 77373, 77380 (we're still investigating other zipcodes although I just want to go with the whole of Houston!) who is "bigger than life itself" starting from 200lb (if you know what I mean).

I am filing a $100 million lawsuit because I feel my constitutional rights have also been violated and it is causing me a great deal of emotional distress. They're taking up my space and breathing way too much of my air. And please refrain from asking me about the case cause I cannot discuss ongoing litigation either!

Well my lawyer said someone sued McDonalds for being served a hot cup of coffee, so why not, I might actually have a case! Me too, I want compensation for all 23½ years of emotional turmoil for everytime I've had to think about it, darn it!!! I might probably want to start drawing up something against my siblings, mother, the whole extended family, employer, educational institution, fast-food restaurants, my bank (ugh... CHASE got that covered already), the city of Houston, and maybe the whole state of Texas.

Heck, even Oprah! Such an easy target with the way she runs her mouth (I still love her though hehehe). They've all violated my constitutional right in one capacity or the other!

Y'all better start checking yourselves lol, you could probably have a case of your own. Is the world flat already?

Happy Independence Day to all my fellow Nigerians out there! Today Nigeria turns 48 years old.

Please let's keep praying for our motherland so we can, one day, have something to show for it as she ages lol.

Nigeria has no choice but to rise above all the negativity out there, and become a strong and positive nation!!! I really admire all the young people who are striving to bring some positive light to the country, geeze... really makes me look like a slacker for real. One day, one day...

A great website, among many others, that seems to be stirring up things so far is the OPERATION: POSITIVE NIGERIAN IMAGE website. Check it our people! Big ups to Estella Ogbonna and Ugo Daniels!!!

Ugh... So much to talk about, yet don't really know where to start from. Plenty of highs as well as the lows that naturally follow you wherever you go. I try as much not to complain but what else now ehn?

In fact the timing might not be the best right now but I think it's time for me to start rediscovering myself all over again. Funny thing though is that I don't think I'd ever discovered myself in the first place. Seems like I'm still going through life all transparent as I can be, and it just might be this same transparency that's causing me all the drama I find myself in.

How does one try to live an honest and open life and yet be told that they talk too much? I mean now I'm being told to learn how to disguise certain feelings otherwise I'll be looked upon as a trouble some person. Ehn ehn! Is that how it is nowadays? Or maybe that's how it has always been but I've probably just been oblivious or too naive, or too young to even care???

It has been a rough couple of days but I'm beginning to learn my lesson bits by bits as the days go by. Consequently I don't think reinventing myself is such a bad idea now that I really think about it.

Soon enough I'll be able to tell if throwing myself into the positive programs I've signed up for will help build me back up. Only time will tell and at this very point, only God can help me.

Hopefully soon enough I'll be able to share what it is I'm so worked out about. God is control...

Beautiful people of this earth, how are y'all doing? Yeah, yeah, yeah, I'm back to the planet; well somewhat. Next couple of weeks are going to be super busy but all the same, I take it all in with gratitude. Can't wait for the Fall semester and then it'll be all over!!! Well, again, somewhat. lol.

Thank God summer school is over!!!!! Whoo hooo!!!! 2 As and 1 B (Ugh, I'd rather not talk about it. Heck why not - stupid stupid stupid accounting class; no disrespect to the accountants out there). And I was really close too, just 4 more points and it would have been an A. Geeshhh... I thought he was going to be "generous"? Anyway, I'm not bothered about it, glad the hassle is over and I guess it was worth it. But will I ever do it that way again (RE: 9 hrs for just the summer)??? HECK NAW!!!

Anywhoo, the reason I have that title up there is because of an article I read recently on FONBYN. If you don't know about fonbyn, you berra see about it cause it only means one thing - ummm.... I'll get back to you on that. No but for real, y'all needs to check it out fast. So the title of the article is "Mary Kay will not make you a Millionaire". That title alone caught my eyes and I couldn't stop laughing from beginning to end! And I'm not sorry to say that there is a lot of truth to what the original writer, Charles Nwoke, was trying to point out. Pink Truth is also a good site to hear countless and countless of stories.

I thought it would be nice to share so I asked him for permission to re-post his work. I got the "Ok" and here it is... Enjoy and warn those who'll listen!!! hehehe (lil disclaimer: Please I have absolutely nothing against Mary Kay, Avon, and the others o!)


Mary Kay will not make you a Millionaire - By Charles N.

Mary Kay starter kit, your first rape.

My fellow Nigerians, Mary Kay will not make you rich. No. Neither will Avon, Quixtar, Amway, Primerica etc.

Fellow Independent business owners, you will not be a millionaire selling Multi Level Marketing products. They come in different names, shapes and sizes. I am picking on Mary Kay because I feel like it. Let us start with the truth:


.....You have a better chance, if you give your ovaries or manhood to baba lawo to make money

.....You have a better chance, if you kidnap an ijebu man and ask his ijebu family for ransom
Fig a. there goes your balls

.....You have a better chance, if you take the money you will use for replenishing your monthly Mary Kay stock, to buy lottery tickets

It is not even a gamble, you will not become a Millionaire selling Mary Kay products.

I am not saying you will not make money selling Mary Kay, am just saying that the initial draw of financial independence and infinite cash flow is a BIG LIE. Even at your hardest, and most loyal level, you will realise that you were better of just having a regular 9 - 5 job getting the same money or more, with a pension plan, and maybe insurance. All you are really doing is selling a "dream" to people, who are supposed to sell the same dream.....while replenishing their Mary Kay products every month for their "business"

FIRST SIGN YOU ARE BEING SCAMMED: They tell you it's not a scam!
"Let me tell you about an incredible ground-level business opportunity," and you are invited to a house or to lunch for "a discussion." "..and dont worry, ITS NOT A PYRAMID SCAM!"

If someone has to convince you to invest in something that requires you to attend "church-like" meetings with "cult-like" behaviors, you have to pay for this tape or that convention, and trys to convince you to otherwise invest in something your gut tells you is crap, Its probably not worth investing in anyway.

Any rich guy will tell you that you shouldnt invest in a business because of the dream of becoming rich, but because you understand the business strategy and you believe it is a sound investment. MLMs try and sell the dream to you first, then the actual business. But they usually never give any proof! (Ask for their bank statement for 1 year! then they tell you its rude to talk about money) Most of us have had the experience, a sister, girflfriend, aunty, mother,brother father is excited and tries to explain to you this new business he or she is investing in ,but they do not really understand it very well... but, HEY!! it will make them RICH. They are putting you (and themselves) on A LOOONG TIN.

Human beings require a social circle. Alot of us are in search of this. This is one of the things these cult...err...these organizations prey on. You meet with people with common goals who treat you as one of them and love you...then financially rape you like they picked you up from metro-park.

Brethrens, do not let your lust for financial success block your common sense. Remember, the number one aim of an MLM is building your "downline" so as to get a magic carpet ride to infinite wealth. Let us go back to primary school:

If they are 10 people in a village. And you start a business of which the number 1 aim is to recruit as many people as possible to be in your "downline", Then you recruit 2 people, and the 2 recruit 2 each, by the time the 4 try and recruit 2, the business is already saturated (remember, the definition of a succesful MLM is the person with the most downline abi?... )

(ME, "original" starter of biz, I have no upline)





Fig b. Primary school diagram of you getting screwed

..So WHO IS GOING TO BE THE CUSTOMER?? Where is the demand? There is nobody left. This means, at optimum operation, an MLM business is bound to fail. At this point, the "business" starts feeding on its self and everybody in everybody's downline starts pushing the pressure up and down for money and the only person that gets rich in this b**** is ME!! (check Fig. b)

And optimal operation will never happen because some business law somewhere states that there is "X" amount of people that will be interested in your product, so it is up to you to figure out how you will keep selling to these people. But this conflicts with the whole point of MLM because you are supposed to keep adding downlines, to be able to build your own koko island.


There is no difference. You both have to figure out a way to keep selling to the same customers. But at least the orange seller is not expecting to become a millionaire

So the MORAL OF MY STORY IS... if you want to become a millionaire, take that idea you have and create a business out of it. Meet a demand with supply. Do not be in anybody's upline or downline, so you would not end up spending thousands in conventions, training classes, and videos, and ruin all the real relationships you have by seeing EVERYBODY you know as a potential "downline".

Dang!!! Long time no see or what??? School o school (and facebook of course hehehe). Not to worry, it'll be over in a week or so. Let's just hope with all of my big mouth, I'll be able to follow through! I'm not even done posting my spain trip sheesh... and Canada is coming up next! Jesus drive my car!!!

So how has everyone been doing? Thanks to those who still check out this blog even though I probably don't deserve it lol. Mehn a lot has happened since I last left my mark here on my blog. Some I can talk about, some I could probably talk about, and some I'd rather nor say at all until the time is right :) Hope everyone is enjoying the summer unlike me? Don't worry, while y'all will be busting your behinds during the Fall, I'll be chillaxing graciously taking only 2 classes until graduation. Yessir!

I am absolutely hating my Managerial Accounting class!!!! And to think that I have to show up for 3 Saturdays to hear some boring teacher with dry jokes for 8 frigging hours!!! Just drown me with hot sauce already (y'all won't get that!). Anyway, thank God I've made my first A for the summer with my first class. Motivation....

Anyway please before I go, what is this I am hearing about the new CD by Styl-Plus completely sucks??? True or lie? Please lemme know before I disgrace myself looking for the thing all over. And if it does suck I am beggin someone to tell them not to even bother releasing any music videos at all. Won't even be necessary hehehe. For real, anyone seen the latest videos by 9ice, P-Square, Naeto C, and them them??? Okay yeah my point exactement (is that even french? lol). Anywhoo gots to run, will be back hopefully soon enough.

I am literally drowning in homework, and that overwhelming fear, that I can't do this, is creeping back again. God help me o! Apart from school, I mean prison, everything else has been good. Just dealing with some issues that have made me question myself recently. Y'all know how that goes...

Just wanted to share this video with y'all. Someone sent it to me; I thought it was really powerful. The tears just couldn't stay away. You have to see it all the way to the end. So you think you're the worst sinner or doubter on earth abi??? My friend, think again and think again very well! There's absolutely nothing too small or too big for Him to handle. Watch and be touched and blessed, and then make your appointment with Him sharpish lol.

So just curious, what would be your cardboard testimony?

Another friday woohoo! Unfortunately just class 9-5, nothing special. Ugh... sitting in class for 8 hours. We really should be getting paid for that, it's pretty much a whole frigging work day!!!

Another Friday, another song to share. Actually I'll make it two cause I really love them both and why not? 1 album, 1 blood, 2 musicians, so 2 songs. I know, but take it like that sha. It's Charles and Taylor!!! hehehe I doubt if a lot of people have heard about them before but they're amazing. Just hear for yourself. I wish I could do a proper write up on them, just no time. Here's what you need to know about them: they're siblings, at the time they recorded and released (2005) this album he was 15 years old and she was 13 years old. Yeah you heard me right. Now you know their ages, please listen to them sing and tell me they're not all that and a bag of rice.

I've always said it - God did not share talents equally when he was distributing them lol! Taylor was only 13 but just hear the big voice she has. Sheesh... where was I and what was I doing when I was 13??? They really are blessed. Anywhoo they need to hurry up with another CD already!

Alright first song up - You are God Alone (Not a god). Some of you might have heard this song before; the Phillips, Craig, and Dean version or like my brother will say, "the white version" hehehe. Please o it really had nothing to do with race, it was just his way of differentiating. I remember the first time he heard Charles & Taylor's version. He was like "is that like the black version remix of the song or what?" LOL, I couldn't help but burst out laughing cause he was actually serious when he asked.

Second song - Made to Worship You. *sigh* This song is just so... I don't even know how to describe it. Every one of my siblings absolutely cannot get enough of the song! Yes the lyrics, the music, the voice, just everything. It is also definitely in the running for my graduation pics montage. Yep I'm thinking that far ahead already. Anywhoo whether we like it or not, we were all made to worship Him...

Enjoy y'all and again, have a great and safe weekend!
