Kentucky’s creationist Ark Encounter is an 800-acre park in located in Kentucky with a 510-foot-long replica of Noah's Ark built to meet the exact specifications described in the bible.

The park which is a profit driven entity designed to spread creationism is a secondary attraction to the Creation Museum 40 miles away. The structure which has the capacity to contain thousands of people at the same time is described as the world’s largest timber framed structure. Although the turn out on opening day wasn’t much as the ark isn’t complete yet, this attraction could be the next spot for Christian tourists all around the world. A few concerns have been raised concerning the structure’s historical accuracy. The structure presents a more biblical approach to things as it suggests the world is 6,000 years old as opposed to the 4.5 billion proposed by scientists and as a result includes model dinosaurs in the belief that humans and dinosaurs coexisted at the time of the big flood.

Bobrissky Is Nigeria’s Dj Khaled And We’re Okay With It... Really

Serving daily inspiration via Snapchat has become the real deal over the last year. There was Dj Khaled with his keys but as good as his daily motivation was, although Khaled was able to milk the crase while it lasted, it soon became repetitive and tiring. In search of a daily dose of comedic inspiration, Nigerians turned over to Bobriskky, a man dressed up and made up as a woman.

 

 

Are y'all following #Bobrisky on #Snapchat ah!!! Make sure you do: Bobriskyy He is hilarious.

A video posted by GOSSIPNG (@gossipnigeria) on

Bobriskky who has made a living off romantic relationships with his many “baes” brags about Bentleys, private jets and all sorts of things gotten from his lovers. Here is where things get interesting. So Bobriskky is a man yeah? Although dressed and made up as a woman, he is believed to still be a male down there. He brags about being with men so i don’t really see how that works.

IF ANYONE KNOWS WHO BOBRISKKY'S BAE IS PLEASE TELL US OH!!

Bobriskky who has completely changed his skintone sells beauty products for men and women who want to be just like him. First there was Vic O then there was Tblak the Nigerian pornography star and like all internet celebrities, Bobriskky has fans and a lot of them to be honest.

 

A lot of us who watch his snapstories want to believe he talks about imaginary baes but according to a friend of his, he in fact tells the truth – at least for the most parts.

 

 

Here are famous quotes from the shman of the hour.

“The only way you can make it in life is when you are umbul and less proud”

“Without you guys, Bobriskky is nobody... Without my bae, Bobriskky is nobody”

I’ll leave you with a video and popular tweets from his many fans.

Honest Trailers Is Celebrating Its Emmy Nomination By Making Fun Of Other Emmy Nominees image

Honest Trailers Is Celebrating Its Emmy Nomination By Making Fun Of Other Emmy Nominees

This March, the TV Academy decided to include a shortform category which is good news if you are a YouTuber. This category goes beyond YouTube producers to Adultswim artistes and other video making outlets available in today’s world. Among the nominees for an Emmy in the Short form category is the ScreenJunkies’ Honest Trailer series.

If you don’t already watch Honest Trailers then you haven’t been using YouTube like you should be. Honest Trailers takes everything disappointing in a movie and uses them to create an actual honest trailer of the movie complete with proper score, cinematic effects and actual movie narrations of the typical movie narrator guy. The channel has grown rapidly since its inception and has over 5.6 million subscribers. The ScreenJunkies brand has huge support from celebrities and just recently featured Ryan Reynolds in their Deadpool parody video.

 

So how does Honest Trailers celebrate their nomination? They create a trademark hilarious clip saying funny but true things about other Emmy nominees. This perhaps is the first time a nominee makes fun of other nominees if you discount animated comedy shows. Risky? Brilliant? Only time will tell.

NOBODY REALLY WATCHES THIS MANY SHOWS TBH, PERHAPS THEY HAVE A POINT.

"With more than 400 scripted shows on television, no voter on earth has time to watch them all, so instead of just voting for your friends this year...”

In the video above, Honest Trailers rips into all your favourite shows in typical ScreenJunkies manner and reveal details like the fact that Blackish is made by the creator of America's Next Top Model, or that two seasons into Better call Saul and everybody still calls him Jimmy isn't really working well with the title name.

You’re Only As Good As Your Management Team image

You’re Only As Good As Your Management Team

“A dream you dream alone is only a dream, a dream you dream together is reality” John Legend. 

Just like every business, the music business follows similar protocol; to turn a dream into a reality takes talent, time, determination and the right team. If you’re an up and coming artiste and you think of music as a 100 meter dash, you need to banish that thought. Behind every successful artiste, there is a cast of equally important people who play vital roles in keeping the artiste afloat. Think of it this way, there’s only so much an artiste can do, if you need to stay in the right frame of mind to make decent music, you need people handling the things that normally will get in your way. The simple truth is this; you’re only as good as your management team because if you begin your career alone, there will come a time you wouldn’t be prepared for the next level.

IYANYA MOVED HIS BUSINESS TO A MUSIC MANAGEMENT COMPANY NAMED “THE TEMPLE MANAGEMENT COMPANY”

We all know the Iyanya story. He announced on the 11th of July that he was leaving his record label. A label which he co-owns by the way. He set up Made Men Music Group MMMG in 2011 but due to problems with his manager and friend Ubi Franklin he decided to leave which confirms that no matter how big you get, the wrong team is the wrong team... Iyanya moved his business to a music management company named “Temple Management Company” much later.

And then there is Skales; the second half of the EME hopeful twins a couple of years ago. Late in May, Skale's Record label accused his manager of fraud. His Manager allegedly made off with 13 million naira. That’s what you get for doing business with the wrong set.

 

What exactly does a music management team do for you?

Having studied a handful of artistes, I noticed a trend; a lot of artistes would rather have a personal manager than have a team of fully committed members. That could work for you if you don’t have the platform to get into a music management company but it is very inefficient and rarely yields result... If you fall into that category, you could always build your own team.

A MUSIC MANAGEMENT TEAM ASSIGNS A PERSONAL MANAGER TO YOU BASED ON THEIR ANALYSIS OF YOU, YOUR MUSIC AND ITS NEEDS.

As mentioned earlier, a personal manager is a good idea but here is why you need a team. A music management team assigns a personal manager to you based on their analysis of you, your music and its needs.

A music management team also provides you with all the required publicity you need. They have the capacity to help with social media adverts, online promotions of your songs and shoots. A concert promoter if you get big enough to perform at specific gatherings is also provided for you.

Retail sales managers work or have the capacity to link you up with major music distribution means like the popular major markets that supply music. If you ever wonder why you see Wizkid’s albums or Davido’s music on the streets, this is the guy responsible and this guy will work closely with your management team.

ANOTHER REALLY IMPORTANT THING TO TAKE AWAY FROM THIS IS THE FACT THAT THEY HANDLE THE LEGAL ASPECT OF THINGS WHICH SAVES YOU A LOT.

A major part of any business is the money making part of it. The only way to test the profitability of your trade is to evaluate the amount of money it rakes in. When you do begin to make money, you have to keep making money faster than you spend it or end up like M.C. Hammer. A management company handles the business part of your work as they handle your finances and predict new ways to make more for you. Another really important thing to take away from this is the fact that they handle the legal aspect of things which saves you a lot.

Every Active Kickass Torrent Mirror Is Actually Just A Dressed Up Piratebay image

Every Active Kickass Torrent Mirror Is Actually Just A Dressed Up Piratebay

Since the arrest of Kickass torrents’ owner Artem Vaulin, there have been several mirror sites that have operated as make shift kickasses. At least that is what we think, yesterday I went in search of a particular file and I discovered the truth; the kickass torrent mirrors are in fact not mirrors at all but dressed up piratebays converting contents from the parent piratebay site to Kickass UI format. This deceptive little trick is really easy to notice and if you’re willing to find out, I’ll guide you.

So let’s pick a random searchword and run it through Kickass.mx; one of the last surviving supposed reincarnations of KAT.cr. Let us use “titanic” as an example.

This is what you would find under the results page on the supposed Kickass body double.

Now head over to piratebay and search the exact keywords, notice anything?

The results are the exact same thing arranged the same all the way to their seeders and leechers. I don’t know who thought this to be a good idea but that man deserves an award. I personally think Kickass got really popular because of its visual appeal hence the reason why piratebay is taking advantage of this.

Trump Or Clinton? Who Is Best For Nigeria image

Trump Or Clinton? Who Is Best For Nigeria

It’s nearly decision time in the United States and whether we like to admit it or not, that means it’s decision time for the rest of the world.

Nigerian reporter, one of my favourite internet hiding places shares its thoughts on how the campaigns and results could affect Nigeria.

The transition of democracy in Nigeria has brought about an improved bilateral relationship between Nigeria and the United States of America. The US has continued to support and rebuke the Nigerian government when necessary, as Nigeria consistently remains a pro-American nation.

According to the 2012 U.S. Global Leadership Report, 77% of Nigerians approve of U.S. leadership, with 9% disapproving and 14% uncertain, and according to a 2013 BBC World Service Poll, 59% of Nigerians view U.S. influence positively, with 29% expressing a negative view. According to a 2014 Global Opinion Poll, 69% of Nigerians view the U.S. favorably. An estimated one million Nigerians and Nigerian-Americans live, study, and work in the United States, while over 25,000 Americans live and work in Nigeria.

This report shows how important the Nigeria-U.S. relationship is, as Americans decide the start of a new political era.


"Both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are hoping to occupy the oval office as the 45th President of the United states after the November polls. Each presidential candidate continues to plead his/her course during rallies, debates and conventions. Over the past few months they have shook hands, held babies, and been asked what is best for America moving forward. One of the most contended issues is how they intend to strengthen foreign relationships. Nigeria remains a close ally of the U.S., hence it is important to know whose policy would best favor our country.

Donald Trump, as a political figure, is a man who seems restive. The Republican presidential nominee has been so open with his immigration plans. He has promised to build walls to shut out immigrants, promised to create a deportation force, and he plans to re-negotiate trade deals and security aids to less privileged countries, he even threatened to deport Nigerians during a speech in Wichita, Kansas.

Hillary Clinton on the other hand seem to be Nigerians’ favorite, although not every Nigerian agrees. She has been in the political spotlight for decades hence, she’s believed to be a steady and safe hand in the White House. However, following the recent allegation from the Republican party about her inaction towards the Boko Haram crises leading to the kidnapping of school girls in northern Nigeria, many Nigerians have become skeptical about her presidency.

As Americans decide who will be occupying the White House for the next four years, Nigerians hope that their choice of president favors Nigeria and the international community at large."

Another George R.R. Martin Show Is Around The Corner

The man who brought us the masterpiece that is Game of Thrones could have his works hanging around a lot longer than we expect. Having been announced that our beloved Game of Thrones would be coming to an end in 2018 with the coming seasons apparently shorter, a lot of fans have turned attention to other shows in preparation of the inevitable. However, news has gotten to us that George R.R. Martin is teaming up with Universal Cable Productions to bring us another fantasy world created by the genius.

The superhero show titled Wild Cards was created alongside Melinda M. Snodgrass in 1987 and according to verge is set in an alternate history which began following the outbreak of an alien virus that mutates its victims but survivors can be crippled or gain superhuman powers. The series spans over twenty anthologies, in which individual authors contribute short stories to a much larger narrative. Wild Cards was expected about 5 years ago when Syfy Films bought the screen rights for the movie adaptation but somehow, that didn’t materialize.

Martin mentioned he will not be involved in the show because of his exclusive deals with HBO however, his co-creator, Melinda will be one of the executive producers for the show.
