Please be patient as I look into getting a new hosting package setup as soon as possible. Hopefully I will be all systems go by the end of next week.

Don’t worry, I have around 10 post ideas ready and waiting for when the site becomes live again!

So today is the big day!

The entire world is now watching, and it is time for Africa to show the world how we roll. I am sure the whole of Mzanzi will unite, like they already have been doing, for the rest of the tournament. It has been magical to see how the country has bonded and joined behind a common cause: Bafana Bafana.

It is time to embrace your African heritage and become one South Africa!

Locnville – There Music Video

Posted by on Jun 2, 2010 in Cape Town, Music | 0 comments

So Locnville have released their third single and I was a little surpised to see that it was the song called “There”. There were a few others that I thought would have been better, but once I saw the music video and the vibe that they are going for, I must admit, I think Locnville have made a smart move. I love seeing Cape Town people set the standards for success!

They seem to be building onto the success of Sun in my pocket as well as 6 Second Poison. Check it out below!

Very nice!

Happy Birthday to you Benjizzle

Posted by on May 27, 2010 in Cape Town, Music | 0 comments

Purely for the fact that Lynsay is going to be extremely cross with me if I don’t do this before, but I must make a disclaimer that this is not really my idea, but rather borrowed from a friend without permission. Thanks Lynsay! :)

Aah, Mr Benjizzle. Yes, that is what I am calling you from now on, just deal with it. You must now accept the fact that life, is slowly (extremely slowly might I add), coming to a grinding hault. The life is draining from you, I and those around us, while we ride into the Sunset. Aah, the joyous times we have shared, and memories we have created! What a fantastic time we have had my friend.

There were moments when my side begged in agony for me to stop laughing, and I was held randsom for air by your jokes. There were also the many moments of awkward jokes shared, were neither of us quite got what the other was saying, or the ridiculous arguments we shared, purely to disagree with the other for some entertainment. These, my friend were the glorious day. Now, as I write this I reminious on those stupendous days my good friend. The days were I had to see your face every morning in almost every class.

Now, my friend, we have come to a very special time in our lives. You are on your last breath, your last steps, your last moments, of being 18 AND IT”S TIME TO CELEBRATE!!!
