Renaissance – 7 Years After…

Wow! I mean, I finally got back to writing here! Amazing stuff! It was just over 7 years ago I published my last blog post and I am back here today. What triggered it? I sincerely can’t tell you. But it really feels good. How am I going to do this now? I sincerely don’t…

The Light – L2W

Lyrics 2 Words (L2W) is a project I’ve wanted to write for a long time. It’s just me converting songs (especially hip-hop and R&B) to words in a way anyone can read and find meaning. Some songs are quite deep and may be useful for a lot more people than those who actually listen to…

The Case of the Foundational Immigrant

I woke up a bit late on Thursday morning only to find that a bunch of people I follow (or have on my ‘Lists’) were on this Twitter Space. Naturally, I listened in. It was co-host by a black American called Tariq who appeared to be a part of some Foundational Black American movement I’ve…

Favorite Things

Since I’d been away from my blog, I’ve had a few discoveries. Of course, it’s been 7 years since I wrote anything on here, so there had to some new things to write about, right? Well, yea, there are and I’d like to share some of them with you. Maybe you’d want to check them…

Dating Married Men – Who Is At Fault?

Well, now that I’m back writing, I might as well get back to issues that really matter and affect a lot of people. As well, some things won’t change on Issues & Tissues. Many of my stories will come from discussions I’ve had across different platforms or in places I’ve been – home, work, church,…

2013/2014 – Thankful

Change is here! This is my (not-so) regular end of year wrap-up for this year. I did not do one for 2013 so this will be a sort of overlapping review for both years. Overall In all, there’s been progress in almost all directions. 2013 started with a lot of stress in a strange land…

A Remembrance of You

I say goodbye one last time. How do I begin? How do I start to tell the story of love that might have been but never was and, because of what has happened, will never be! It’s really sad! I never heard a thing. And that was because we’ve grown apart and so far away…

Bad Gunners, Good Gunners! Death to Narratives Pt. 2

This follow-up to the previous post will focus more on general team and club issues over time. The last post addressed why I think we were all overreacting to the Chelsea loss. Yes, we have lost to the top four teams more often than not in the last 5 or 10 seasons (whatever stats you…

Bad Gunners, Good Gunners! Death to Narratives Pt. 1

Push and Shove! It’s been a loooong while I’ve posted anything here but I guess you guys just have to put up with my once-in-a-while attitude. Sorry. Again, it’s football that’s brought me back on here and this is more of me getting tired of all the comments and analysis flying around. I know I’m…
