I recently was part of an advert campaign for Campina Dairy in the Netherlands along with Epke Zonderland. The Dutch 2012 Olympic Gold medalist for the High Bar. Yes I have what appears to be a nipple stand. But again. This is why I make the big money. (its because of my big nipples surely) … Continue reading This folks. This is why I make the big money. It’s all in the nipples.
Much has been made during the time I have lived in South Africa, about the fear of Satanism in society. Certainly more so than anything I ever heard of when living in the UK. Many have claimed to have been involved in Satanic covens and churches in the country. With this in mind, I am … Continue reading Where are the Satanists in this land? I would like to interview them.
Nothing. The stars have nothing in line for you. Make your own life choices.
Well well well. Some folks either are brave or as stupid as it gets. I will leave you to make your own judgement here.
Did you get the Pollock family come to your school when you were a kid to preach about Jesus to you?.. Yes the same ones, who, whilst playing cricket like demons, came to our schools when we were kids to talk to us about demons.
What demons…..The Cartoon Demons of the 80’s
I recall having Peter Pollock, father of Shaun, the “ginger ninja” and the selector of the South African cricket team, actually interrupt our childhood education with this twaddle. Masters of the Universe, Ninja Turtles that kind of thing. What a wally.
You see the smurf’s were demons….What kind of demons you may ask. Well it was the 80’s, and there wasn’t quite the range of cartoons out there for kids at the time in South Africa… So it was mostly gentle kindly things like the Smurfs they picked on. What was wrong with the smurf’s you may well…

Its time to stop the nonsense. When I was a kid, life was pretty simple when it came to food. For lunch you got a polony sandwich, and if you were particularly well behaved a chicken and mushroom pie. Mostly around your birthday. My friends kids today speak of having a deconstructed mac and cheese … Continue reading Wearing the (hell)pants #STOPTHENONSENSE #GOODDEED
Every so often a little gem falls from the stars. That little gem needs to land on this earth, to be subjected to massive pressures and then, only after millions of years, a diamond will form. This video still has several hundred thousand years to go. It may not be a diamond. But yassis. It … Continue reading Is this the best treffer in the world ever? Egmond – Kom red my…. Never forget. Never ever forget.
Michael Jackson just cannot be trusted. Dead since June 25 2009, yet here is proof that he is still touching children. Go to around the one minute mark to see what I mean. No videos of have been found to date of Jurie Els touching any kids. At least musically that is..
Some folks struggle with ordering wine at the restaurant. Why? Keep it simple and enjoy your meals whilst impressing your partner.
I love Prince. He makes amazing music. But he is no David Attenborough. When I was a kid, I often wondered what doves crying actually sounds like. I'm going to guess it's a bit like this. or this.... More of life's questions to be answered soon.
The film industry in Cape Town is growing at an alarming rate. World class crew and talent right here in the Cape. There is budget too with some of the productions running into hundreds of millions of rands. What are they making at the end of the day? Well nothing to really write home about. … Continue reading This is the greatest action film ever made: “Who killed Captain Alex” (Full film)
Cape Town is a food city. Whilst everyone has a differing opinion on the Cape about something or another. Pretty much everyone agrees that the quality of food in this city is outstanding. http://www.iol.co.za/capeargus/cape-town-food-3rd-best-in-world-1.1844675#.VTpdd62eDGc I eat out a lot. I guess you could say almost vulgarly. But there is always a new place to try, … Continue reading Best Restaurants in Cape Town?
I recently had the pleasure (if one can call eating polony pleasurable) with the esteemed Gareth's (plural) I was a guest on episode #43 with Gareth Allison and Gareth Woods where we discussed the (de)merits of polony and other such emulsified meat treats. You can find them on twitter on @twogsinapod The most popular comedy … Continue reading Polony tasting, comedy & bizarre news?
Schalk Bezuidenhout is a funny funny man. We were bored and decided to make a piss-poor parody of the whole #SuzelleDIY youtube phenomena. It's had a few hits and frankly we are capable of a lot higher quality than this. But hey. It took a couple of hours and I got sunburned and drank brandy. … Continue reading Jumping on the #SuzelleDIY bandwagon.
Ok. Truth time. http://www.gumtree.co.za have asked me to write a few words on buying online. Lets start with the truth. Since that is the biggest issue when buying online. Often blind. I have bought dozens of vehicles over the years. Using http://www.gumtree.co.za in South Africa has seen me purchase many of my cars and motorbikes … Continue reading Buying cars online. Good idea or not?
Every so often I get itchy feet. Not all “sell everything I have and run away” kind of travel. But you know, more the “Lets go have a look around the country” kind of vibes. In 2013 I took a year off of sorts (well from South Africa at least) and made my way around … Continue reading I miss my motorhome.
I have owned too many cars. At my last count, I have owned over twenty six cars or motorbikes. So you may be asking. Why have I gone through so many cars. Don't get me wrong, nearly all of those vehicles have been sold on. I don't break cars. I just use them, and when … Continue reading Driving around Johannesburg certainly requires the right wheels.
