In the (on)line of fire...

In this day and age it has become increasingly difficult to remain private. The government wants you to divulge your every detail every time you buy a loaf of bread. You cannot communicate anymore if you haven't filled out 16 forms in triplicate (in blood) and there are so many conventions that end in "ICA" I've lost count. We blog (erm...), we post, we comment, we even tag ourselves, no matter how em-bare-ass-ing the pics are.
And everyone bitches about it.
Why then, ladies and gentlefolk, do the hordes insist on airing their dirty laundry on social networking sites? Status updates are becoming easy-to-follow threads explaining the hourly evolution of peoples' personal dramas. Pretty soon we're not going to need soapies or private dicks anymore (LIKE Magnum, not FOR Magnum). If you want to know how the argument between person X and person Y is going, simply log onto Spuitpoep and follow both, including their hangers-on's comments and views. Awesome viewing!
Enjoy your Tuesday folks.

Irreverent Fridays

'Irreverent Fridays' - my new global institution, are much like the Friday night action movies on eTV. Fucking annoying, but unavoidable. You know, the ones that rebroadcast all the movies ever made by Chuck Norris, Steven Seagal and Jean Claude Van DAMN I'M FINE!
So in this spirit of irreverence, "screw you guys, I'm going home!"

Thursday Turbo Boost

Thursday always feels like that bridge too far in the week. The penultimate hurdle before all your sins are washed away and all your problems are postponed 'til Monster Moan Monday.
We could all do with a Knight Rider-esque turbo boost to make it over the last stretch and this is possibly why Thursday Night Drinking Binge was invented. Personally I am going to take full advantage of this glorious weather and head down to La Med to play football before rewarding myself with ice cold beer. And lots of it...
Also I would like to direct you to a friend of mine's blog. Check out Tequila Tart on for a cracking good read. And please don't throw plates at your screen.
Have a Turbo Boost day y'all!

Monday Monster Moan

Urgh! As I'm sure most of you are feeling the same as me, let's celebrate this awful feeling together.
Mondays are for the dogs. Especially when the weekend has been relatively jammed packed with fun activities and the occasional tipple.
Went to watch the historic Big 4 event last night and was less than impressed with the sound, but had a great time watching the show. But it carried on way past my bed time, so I'm still grumpy. Luckily nothing cataclysmic has happened at work - hahaha - like that's gonna happen...
Anyway - hope you all have a fantastic Monster Moanday today.

I hereby declare this the first official 'IRREVERENT FRIDAY'...

Can I have a hallelujah!

Silly hats

Ok so here is where I give away my whereabouts...
What is with the current trend of guys wearing silly Trilby hats? Who on earth thought that was going to look cool? As opposed to making them look like wanktards?
Seems if you want to be taken seriously as an artist in any capacity, the silly hat (and optional jihad scarf) are a fashion must.
So much for not conforming to a stereotype.

Welcome - that's what my grandma said...

Well, well, well. Seems I've decided to join the 21st Century after all. That in no way amounts to a Bowie reference for those of you already speculating about me or my preferences...

I have as yet no idea what I will be writing about in the forthcoming days/weeks/months/years, but as far as inane drivel goes, it should be pretty entertaining, dependent on my state of sobriety.

More than likely the following topics could be on the agenda: The demise of human interaction and proper socialising, music in all shapes and forms and various levels of glory, mutterings about inconsiderate wankers, reports on social events the likes of which you could only dream of being invited to (I just put that in to make me sound far more glamorous than I am), my tool of a pseudo-cousin, amazing pub quiz nights, life in the fast lane, the utter disintegration of grammatical correctness and all other odds and sods regarding general larking about.


And spread the love in a safe and consensual manner...
