Its just wAtEr!

First off I’d like to point one simple fact. I HATE DRINKING WATER!
I honestly think that stuff has a taste. And that taste is NOT.NICE! I don’t look down on people that drink it. And I certainly have no problem with fish doing their thing in it. I just can’t stand it. And yet, this post is not influenced AT ALL by the Hydro-Hater in me.

What’s the deal with trying to make water appealing? Its just water! Nobody has discovered some new variety of water. Yeah, there was the whole mineral water fad and what not, but come on people, we are not in Hollweird. We know better than that.

Pure Spring water? Are you kidding me? How the heck is it pure? Oh, I know….Its coz its got no visible impurities right? Springs are the new clean. Man, I was way off. Let’s do adverts…

“ What you are about to see is different. No one, since the dawn of time has witnessed this. This is the beginning…the commencement. The start. The real real thing. So real I have repeated myself. But hush, here it is now. Look at that, It’s the birth of a new Spring. And we, the wonderful folks at Hydro Industries are going to trap the little tyke, subject it to tests in our noisy industry and trap it in a bottle…just for you.”

While we are at it, we might as well plug this one,

“Howdy y’all. Err’one’s talkin’ about Grillz and s**t but that’s not what you want. No way homie. What you need all that metal and shit in your mouth for? Get this, we’re gonna get these precious stones things and wash em with water and then we will pack em in a bottle for you. We’re gonna call that Mineral water, cuz itf off ‘a minerals, you dig? Mineral water! Are y’all pickin up what I’m putting down?’ It’s the h to tha 2 awww DAWG!

to be continued…

    Hi Ivan

    Are you interested in participating in a Danish documentary about the Ugandan Blogosphere?

    I have been contacted by a group of four Danish students at the Faculty of Communications at Roskilde University in Denmark (the second/third largest university in Denmark) who needs help from the Ugandan blogosphere. They will be visiting Uganda during April 2007 to do a short documentary on blogging. More specifically they would like to make a film about Ugandans who blog, their reasons to do so, and what opportunities blogging can create for that person and/or Uganda. That is of course if the Ugandan bloggers are keen and interested in participating!

    The Danish Association for International Cooperation (MS Uganda): The group is working with the Danish Association for International Cooperation (MS Uganda), whom I also work with here in Uganda – and who has supported the production of the documentary, and later will help promoting the film in Denmark. Their reasons for this film is to make people, especially the younger generation, in Denmark take an interest in Uganda and maybe even to encourage them to blog and thereby build a bridge between Denmark and Uganda. They have been following the Ugandan blogosphere for a while, and after reading different blogs and just generally reading about Uganda, the angle they would like to put on the story is this:

    The idea: Does blogging create new opportunities for Ugandans because it enables people to communicate through a media which automatically crosses country borders and can provide a whole new ordience, so to speak, for free? Does it give Ugandans the opportunity to speak more freely and nuanced about issues which are regarded sensitive in Uganda? What other benefits does blogging provide the Ugandans with which are not possible through the established media?

    The target group in Denmark: The documentary, when finished, is to be shown in the Danish secondary school/high school as part of educational material on developing issues. Through a documentary about blogging in Uganda the Danes can get to know Uganda from another angle than the usual. They group would like to follow two or three Ugandan bloggers, give them the space to tell their story and understand why they blog. They would also ask Ugandan bloggers the permission to film during the UBHH in April.

    I am aware that anonymity is of great importance for some Ugandan bloggers – for good reasons. However, what ever your background/interest/expectations are we are very keen to hear what Ugandan bloggers think about the idea of participating in a short documentary and in communicating to a Danish ordience this way.

    The idea is very much in line with what Country Boyi is writing here and Jackfruity here – although a different way of attention.
