Kingdom Hospital: Africa

Hello world within The UCverse.
Finally, after days upon days, illness and epidemic have left my village in Africa, and as the African proverb reads. “I’m thankful that I am not those other starving bastards.”

After encountering the truest of jungle fevers, I had the fortune to visit my first third world hospital since my birth. It wasn’t the amount of dirt on the floors that put me off, and it wasn’t the obvious stains and remnants of blood, urine, and someone elses hair in the hospital bed that made me dislike my experience.

It was the nurse. So attractive. Such a Bitch.

However, one can learn that there is always opportunity coming from misfortune. It makes me remember the line from The Devil Wears Prada,

“I am one stomach flu away from my ideal weight.”

Those are sad but fabulous facts of life. Right now my body has withered away to something like Christian Bale in the “The Machinist,” but in all seriousness when I look in the mirror I see something that resembles a cross between The Situation and Vinny (imagine that).

Other positives were now knowing that I have survived a more disgusting endeavor than anything seen on Fear Factor, but since this is Africa, there will certainly be no cash prize in the end.

The worst part is I actually want to go back and find that nurse :

Africa only has so many options :P

Questions for You:
If you HAD to pick one place in Africa, where would you go? (obligatory)
What is your most positive hospital experience? (for a change)
Overall: what do you think of nurses? (hot or not? You decide).

  1. um, Egypt or South Africa. I would have at one time gladly had mono to lose weight and you quoted the Devil Wears Prada which is awe-some. My mom is a nurse, so that's Freudian territory, chief!

  2. I would like to go to the specific spot that you were at and find that nurse.

  3. Also, WHY have you blacked out certain portions of the dark continent? Is this some alternative plague-ridden future?

  5. Egypt/South Africa

    Had heart surgery and DIDN'T die

    I know a lot of nurses personally and they don't do anything for me sexually, but some of them have really great/sick senses of humour. Also, because they've experienced a lot of disgusting things, never let them know you're in any way squeamish or they'll torture you with their stories. New Drs and EMTs are where it's at for me.

3 New Lana Songs Come Out From Upcoming Album "Blue Banisters"

Not even that far off from "Chemtrails Over The Country Club" being released this past March, Lana Del Rey dropped three new singles off her upcoming project, "Blue Banisters." They include the title track, "Text Book," and "Wildflower Wildfire." All three songs seem to merge the worlds of "COCC" with "Norman Fucking Rockwell," specifically Lana's mouthful of a track "Hope is a Dangerous Thing for a Woman Like Me To Have But I Have It." They also seem uncharacteristically more confessional than most of Lana's catalog to date, specifically "Wildflower Wildfire," which alludes to a conflict with her mother. She even starts the track with "Here's the deal," readying to show more of her backstory than she ever has in her decade-plus-long career. The three songs are gorgeous - especially "Text Book," which has a haunting quality to it (she mentions "Black Lives Matter" i

Tusse releases French Language Version of "Voices"

In case you missed Eurovision this past weekend - and if you're an American, you likely did - there were some truly talented acts among those competing for this year's prestigious title. There were some pretty boring acts, and there were only a few of truly strange contestants this time around (bummer).  Sweden's act Tusse was pretty talented; his joyful and uplifting track "Voices" was actually one of the few that seemed rather memorable to me. Turns out he's releasing it in French - which makes sense, as Tusse is Kongo-Kinshasa born. Tusse is enormously popular in Sweden from what I can tell, having won both Melodifestivalen (Sweden's precursor to Eurovision) and Swedish Idol. He's a talented guy, and I'm sure we're just seeing the start of what is bound to be a long and prolific career.   (you might not be able to watch this outside of Sweden so, see below) The French version of "Voices" is available for streaming here .  Also, whi

"Round the Bend" - Zoon (Beck cover)

My favorite album of Beck's has long been "Sea Change," for approximately the 20 or so years it's been out. I would probably regard it as one of my personal favorite records, for its wistfulness and its beauty. When I heard about Zoon (aka Zoongide’ewin) - the musical project of Daniel Monkman - covering the "Sea Change" track "Round the Bend," I was somewhat skeptical simply because the album holds such a place in my heart. Now, prior to hearing about this cover, I wasn't so familiar with the work of Zoon. And now, I've got to say, in my best Owen Wilson - Wow.  Apparently we both hold the 2003 Beck album in high esteem. Said Daniel about "Sea Change," "After my first listen I was so moved and at the time I was going through a pretty bad break up and this album helped me process my depression. Throughout my time away from music I’d always have a copy beside me; it kept inspiring me that I could try any kind of music style. I
