Sex and the City 2 came out tonight and my girlfriend Rachelle got tickets to an Diet Coke/ASOS special screening at Westfields tonight. I was exhausted but not wanting to leave my friend in the lurch I went. I’m not particularly a major nor obsessed SATC fan, but thought why not – bound to be good shoes in it and we can always do with a girlie flick.
I’m glad that I went. Despite the reviews or previews I’ve been reading, I actually enjoyed it. The first SATC was a bit sad and not particularly female empowering, this one really was, plus the shoes and clothes were amazing. I couldn’t help wonder who actually can wear heels 24/7 like they did (I suppose New Yorker women?) but I could dream of the day I could wear my choos or Louboutains the whole day. Oh yeah, it’s a movie, but one can still dream.
And change several times in one day – love it! I did think Samantha’s overly sexual ways were too much, i mean damn, she’s always in heat! Well at least they clearly showed she’s a firm believer in safe sex.
Afterwards, Rachelle and I caught up over a couple of glasses of champagne – 2 hours later we realised we’d only had 2 glasses each! It’d been awhile since we actually talked so guess that’s what happens when you’re chatting and last orders came and went without us noticing. Oh well.
I do recommend SATC for a girly night out – no one really expects to take it seriously, but its one of those films that you have to watch and appreciate, if not just for the amazing shoes. But I would like to know when I can plan a trip to Abu Dhabi – not that it was filmed there, still…

Written and produced by my very own brother, this is probably Zambia’s best serial drama with strong HIV/AIDS messages. Here is the documentary about the launch of the campaign, will seed a few episodes too, but this is just a taster…

the super secret trailer for the new drama we’re producing for africa. shot on location in Nairobi – i serve as an executive producer on it. it premieres on the 11th of November!

It’s all about sexual networks at the moment. do you know who’s in your sexual network? do you know that if one person is infected in your sexual network then you and everyone else in your network is at risk (if you’re having unprotected sex)? and the best one yet – when you have unprotected sex with someone, you’ve having sex with all their partners and all their partners partners.
so here in the UK one of the pharmacies here have set up an online sexual calculator, so you can see how many people you’ve had sex with – indirectly (think six degrees of separation, but around sexual partners). the problem with it is that for some people the calculations see a bit far fetched (a friend of mine did it and it said he’d had sex with over 9 million people!). and it doesn’t really tell you how it worked it out either…
but give it a go because if nothing else, it’s fun – and you can publish it on facebook (of course)! though we really do need (young) people to understand the whole concept of sexual networks and the risks. mtv – not the business unit i’m in – did a show that showed that between a group of eight friends they’d slept with over 200 people and inadvertently with each other because of their sexual networks. scary thought.
get calculating:
