For me 2006 was a great year (check out my archives to the left if you are curious 🙂 ). It was a year of beginnings: new school/career path, new girlfriend, new apartment – in a sense, a new life. I hope to build on these beginnings and have an even better 2007.

I wish the same for you all: may 2007 be a great year for each of you.

God bless.

Christmas in the Burgh December 27, 2006

This Christmas I went home to hang out with Mom. We had a blast, and Santa was good to us both 🙂

We spent 3 days opening gifts. I got a bunch of nice shirts, Capote on DVD, and some money (among other things). (Note: the sweater in the picture above is from Adrienne; we had Christmas early.) Mom got a bunch of stuff too. I was happy to get her a pink bluetooth headset to go with her new pink Razr and a DVD collection of some Andrew Lloyd Webber/Tim Rice works, including Cats, Joseph, and JCS, which she was very excited about.

Check out more pics of Christmas on my Flickr

Cheers!

James Brown

I was sad to hear James Brown, Godfather of Soul, passed Monday morning. I’ve loved his music as long as I can remember. I am glad that he left on top. RIP, James Brown.

Click on the picture above for a link to a blog that has collected some videos of James Brown from the information superhighway.

“James Brown, ladies and gentleman. James Brown!”

Just finished first semester!

It flew by. I am packing up now and headed home for some much needed (and earned – imho) relaxation.  I hear the next semester is a lot more managable so the hard part is mostly over. I must say, b-school has been a great experience so far. I am excited to see what the experience is like without as much pressure as first semester.

Next you hear from me, I will most likely be chilling in the ‘Burgh. 🙂

Cheers!

So I was surfing the information super highway and came across Gizmag.
This site is full of things that make you go “What the… ?!” Here’s some of the cool stuff (click on the pics).

This suit is something like a predecessor to the APU’s in the Matrix:

If you’ve seen South Park, I don’t have to say anything about this one:

And now for the real Batmobile (I’ve got to say this car is kinda bangin’):

And a six-wheeled sports car …huh? Yeah, six wheels.:

…and I thought my camera was small because it fits into an Altoid’s tin…

And finally, Okwui’s next television, the world’s largest HD LED TV:

Welcome to the new home of Q Blog for those who are coming over from my blogger blog.

WordPress has taken a little getting used to – only because I don’t exactly know how I want to use all the features 🙂 <- like that smiley face that was just automatically added.

Hope you all enjoy as I continues to post random musings.

Cheers.
