Chris Rock is a funny guy. Sometimes, his jokes are a little out of line, but most of the time, he's a really funny guy. I bumped into one of his stand-up clips a while ago. He explains that it's okay for fat girls to talk about skinny girls and short guys to talk about [...]

My mother is an academic professional. She's one of those people with so many academic distinctions that you begin to wonder what you're doing with your life. Especially people, like me, who are very anti-school. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying education is pointless. I'm just against the current structure of the institutions through [...]

First things first. I didn't really get an answer to this question, and I'd still really like one, so if you don't mind ... thank you kindly. Onwards onwards. A good proportion of the DR Crew works in advertising. Which means we routinely makes videos like this *pointing up*. Which means I should really enjoy [...]

Every Friday, I get a newsletter from Cracked with five articles they think I should read. Last week's letter had an interesting piece on directing pornography which made me genuinely curious. See, I've read tons of articles about how women analyse everything and how men are remarkably simple, and today, I'm hoping a guy can explain [...]

I've waited to write this. The last time I went to Westgate was exactly a week before the famed attack the mall is now associated with. When I say exactly, I mean exact, down to the hour. I was meeting up with some friends in between my trips in and out of Kenya. It was [...]

I like to leave the office at 5.00, but I usually leave at 6.00, or maybe 6.30. Not today. It's 6.00 p.m., and my boss needs me to go for a meeting. I have no idea what time this meeting will end. I call my baby and tell her I'll be late. She says it's [...]

My views on homosexuality have changed a lot in my 32 years. My first conscious memory of the issue is watching a mini-series on KTN. I don't remember the name of the series, but it had something to do with a wall or a fence, and I think it starred Oprah Winfrey. In the series, [...]

The naked body is a beautiful thing. Unfortunately, few women see their bare bodies that way. Even models and beauty queens have qualms when they stand before a mirror. So no, it's not that strange that Jennifer Lawrence and a hundred other celebrities are uncomfortable with their (perfect) nude bodies being paraded all over the [...]
