Spotlight: Creatweet Winners III!
From Monday, we’ve been bringing you the winners of the Creatweet Contest.
Now today, the last man (by no means least) standing, Justin Irabor!
We like to call him WunderKid!
Read below to find out why:
- Real Name(s): Irabor Justin Ikhide.
- What did you feel when you actually got the airtime you were promised?
- The first thing I thought was: whoop-whoop! Free modem subscription! Second was: damn, Seun Odukoya actually came through. ‘Twas a glorious moment, is what I’m trying to say.
- I’d like you to share the most dry joke you’ve ever heard.
- “In the Yoruba Language, there are two types of Chris’es depending on their relative distance from you: the Christopher and the Christonear.” What’s even sad is that I wrote the joke myself.
- What do you think of video games?
- I think they’re awesome! If I didn’t have to do totally irrelevant and annoying stuff like going to school or getting a job, video-gaming would have become a full-time obsesssion by now. And you know that crap about action games being thet bedrock of violence crimes in the society? That’s just what it is: crap. Humanity has never needed a model to teach them violence. As evidence of my claim, I ask you to produce the person who tutored Cain on killing Abel.
- If you could be God for a day – what would you do?
- Um. Tough one. I guess I’ll just get with the program. Vaporize Satan, start the eternal life already and return to bed. I assume I’d have been sleeping before the responsibility was given me.
- Your phone. Your laptop. A pen & a pad. Choose one.
- My phone. Heck, it’s an ancient-of-days BlackBerry Tour, but it has the ability to do everything I could possibly want to do on my laptop or on a pad (no offence, lappy and pad). Take for an example: I’m answering this on my BB. Bazinga.
- Obviously, you love books and novels. What do you HATE about them?
Whew. I never thought I’ll have to state what I hated about books. When I get right down to it, I guess I hate the fact that books are esoteric. Yes, that’s the word. Book-reading is a latent cult, my friend. You have to “accept” the book to “understand” it, and therefore become “indoctrinated” by it. So if you find the tales of the Shroud of Turin irrelevant and unworthy of your intellectual prowess, you’ll never understand the Shroud of Turin.
This makes a book an exclusive club. It’s like the books “select” people beforehand who will gain anything from them. Lovers of Stephen King, for example, are pro-Stephen King even before reading any of his books. Don’t shoot me: it’s just me theoretizing here.
In a nutshell: Books have to be understood before they are understood. That’s what I hate about ’em. I hope I even make sense.
