Where Am I Going to Spend Eternity, My Favourite Website and My Favourite Movie

Today is all about answering questions from my namesake, Tony, who runs one of the biggest websites in Naija according to Alexa, Naija Ecash. I also answer the most interesting question I have received so far, from Mo Ma. These answers definitely don’t show me in the best light, but you asked and so I answer…..

If You Have any Questions You Would Like Me to Answer

Then please read this post, where I talked about this little question and answer session.

Tony asks:

Which is your favorite website?

My Answer:

This really depends on what I am after. I learn best by watching videos and so you can find me on Google Videos looking for videos on all sorts of topics all the time though I am currently obsessed with finding Timothy Ferriss and Jay Abraham videos. Some sites I can’t mention here :(

Considering my freelance work as a blogging consultant and freelance writer and all the projects I have to get done, I spend huge amounts of time on Rentacoder.

I also spend a lot of time on:

a) The Blog Mastermind website and forums.

b) Yaro Starak’s latest posts on blogging.

c) Searching for podcasts on Itunes.

d) Reading stories by a man called Jon who I met a while back.

e) Leaving comments on gal africana’s and Kelly’s blog.

f) Searching for information by Jay Abraham and Timothy Ferriss and so on and so on and so on.

Tony asks:

Which is your favorite movie?

My Answer:

I actually did a post on this some time ago on 7 Movie Classics. Add to that list:

a) Get Smart – Steve Carell is pure comedy, pure comedy, no one else can make fun of himself so well with such a serious face.

b) Pretty Woman – Go fig, I am simply drawn to this storyline.

c) Short films by Roy Ston Tan : I got a chance to catch this guy at the Melbourne International Film Festival two years ago and adored his work.

d) Great Happiness Space: Tales of an Osaka Love Thief: Any movies that explain succesful relationships or relationship tips that can help men, I like. There is a lot to be learned from this movie about “hosting clubs” in Tokyo.

e) La Vie En Rose: Not this movie specifically but movies like it that take me back in time and draw me into a world separate from my own. That having been said, La Vie En Rose was pretty powerful…….

Tony Asks:

Where are you going to spend eternity?

My Answer:

If there is indeed a hell, I think the way I live is a clear indication that I am going there. As I go, I will be thankful for all the blessings I received while alive, but I think if we are to peruse the good book on all the verses that discuss how to get into the “Book of Life” I am clearly not on that guest list.

I find it hard to believe in an eternal hell, I must say. A temporary hell, yes. But a permanent hell, when there is a God who is pure love and made us in His own image……this might be outside of my own understanding but the concept of hell just doesn’t add up. Here’s to hopping that John was just a raging schitzophrenic.

Mo Ma Asks:

What is an incubus and how exactly does the state of Woody Allen’s over-easy omelet threaten world peace as far as the Solomon Islands and Elephant Seals are concerned?

    Man, I can’t believe you did this! You made a serious post out of my questions? Hey, I thought you were just kidding when you requested for questions and promised to answer them.

    Well, I guess, the way you responded to the questions, have strengthening the respect I have for you as a man of integrity. I also appreciate the candid manner you presented your answers.

    Answer number one is quite an interesting list, hey, those names makes a lot of sense, and I am totally in support of you researching their works.

    Answer number two contains movies I have never heard of. Funny isnn’t it! I can only boast of having watched Pretty Woman. A great work, though I cannot place the moral lesson been thought (call me a freak puritan, no problem).

    Answer number three has generated a prayer point. Hey, we are quite opposite on this one. So, I am going to pray about it. (I’m not trying to cajole you into anything, but since you are my friend, I’ve got to do what my heart tells me).

    Life can be funny, a question asked in a carefree manner, has told me more about you than I have been able to learn in months. You are a funny guy, thanks for the link love. However, if you believe in SEO and all those stuff, my anchor text is ‘Nigerian Entrepreneur’ not ‘Naija E Cash’. Have a wonderful day.

    I sure will see you online or if the Lord comes quickly, I shall see you in Heaven in Jesus name! Amen. Shalom ;-) (go figure, I’ve started praying, I want all my pal in heaven when the roll is called up yonder)

    NO WAY, MAN!

    I always thought it was “NO”.

    You are a SAGE!

    Thanks for playing along. :P

    @Tony: Yeah, of course I did. I am trying to correlate my increase in age with an increase in integrity. No problem, as good friends will, you only pray because you care and for that I of course thank you.
    Those movies are great. There was a time I was very into art house films and I think once I begin going out a lot again, I will dive right back into art house films.

    @Mo Ma: Thanks man, that answer was Harvard + Makerere University + wahenga (wise men) approved. Of course I played along, it was….the most important question I was ever asked :P Thanks for subscribing to my vids………..

    You skipped my question. dont care what form its in. whatever’s easiest.

  • By Mwangi, August 20, 2008 @ 12:54 am

    @Leeban: I far from forgot your question. I interviewed an immi consultant and asked them your question and I have audio of that plus other useful information for you.
    Look out for that audio some time in the next fortnight. Yours is the last question and I saved a great question for last :)
