Brain Fart…

March 4, 2011

I had a little chuckle today while reading an article on Charlie Sheen’s strange quotes (found at: http://bit.ly/fFkUvM) He is a total loose cannon, that one. I mean, really.  One of my faves: “I’m tired of pretending I’m not special. I’m tired of pretending I’m not a total bitchin’ rock star from Mars. People can’t […]

The Rolling Stones, space ships and a little bit of GoodLuck

March 2, 2011

So half the week has gone and I’m praying for the other half to magically disappear so that its weekend – but hey here’s to wishful thinking. The Rolling Stones said, (or sang, rather) “you can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometimes you’ll find you get what you need”. Wise words. […]

The Repurposing Rant… Sheeesh

February 28, 2011

Week three has begun… Monday is (thankfully) almost over and I’m already praying for weekend to get here quickly. At least I have some distractions to keep me going.

The answer to why ‘every guy in CT wears blerry skinny jeans’

February 24, 2011

Ok, so the last time I left off I was headed into the aKING album launch at The Fugard Theatre in District Six. Well, they blew me away – them, their fro’s and their inappropriate facial hair. It was amazing. In fact, they made the seats vibrate… literally. (The article will be up on http://www.EntertainmentAfrica.com […]

The Skinny Jeans Debate

February 22, 2011

So, here I am after almost a week and a half of my first actual job. I haven’t posted in ages so I thought I’d do a little catch up sesh first. Basically I’ve been selling my soul doing re-purposing for a publication I’m starting to question. On the plus side there have been ahsumly […]
