Soufefrica DOMINATING!

Not that these lists mean shit, but La Colombe just rated 12th best restaurant in the world. This is sure to get up the noses of lots of Australians as their best restaurant achieved only 27th! We got two restaurants in the top 50, which is great when you see some of the other restaurants there. I ate at La Colombe less than a year ago and it was fucking outstanding. Maybe better than that actually. And unbelievable value when you see the prices of some of the restaurants around it.

Can't help but think that the WC has something to do with the rating, but fuck it, we beat Australia and thats all that matters.

Da daaa du-dumm, I got the post-Freedom Day blues

There is too much news to read. And reading it doesn't feel terribly rewarding anymore either. Is anyone else (living in SA - not that your opinions, foreigners, are not welcome) becoming a little overwhelmed by it all?

And it's not even the politics, although this Freedom Day thing got me a little mif. Much more basic stuff worries me, a trend that seems to accelerate with age. Like this report on our sewage works. The bigger picture is not the imminent collapse of sewage systems, which would suck for sure but can be fixed with money, but the fact that SA is so water scarce.

Thankfully Hayibo is usually there at the end of the reading list.

Coachella fully zeffed

Apparently they made some heads turn at Coachella this year. Haven't seen the Boing Boing interview but not sure I want to.

Oppi will be interesting this year, that's for sure.

Australians

Sometimes, they're a little over eager... (for those that dont know ACA - A Current Affair - is a quasi-news show where average Australians get a platform to whinge about the neighbours dogs, Asian immigrants, or the latest fad diet).



... but Australians are never racist!

Lets hope they are still crap at rugby... STORM SAAM!

numinosity

I really thought this incredible. Language without words.... (I found myself drawing a sheet of music in my mind's eye)

I also just wanted to send out a general apology. I've been hideous about contact lately. Just entirely, entirely overwhelmed at work...

Don't be tjatjarag!

Tjatjarag - as used by Juju just before calling Jonah a rubbish, bastard, small boy, and bloody agent.

If you were wondering what may come of the ANC's 'threat' to spank Juju's bottom, the latest may be found here.

Blk Jks Collaborates With DJ Tiesto

13/04/10


SA's hottest afro-rockband, BLK JKS will be collaborating with the world's biggest DJ Tiësto, on an exclusive track which will be premiered live at Smirnoff Experience Mash-upStreet in Johannesburg on 15 May.

This unique collaboration between the two musically diverse acts began just a little over a month ago. Following the success of Tiësto's recent genre-bending collaborations with Nelly Furtado, Three 6 Mafia, Calvin Harris, Tegan & Sara as well as remixes of MUSE, Bloc Party and Editors, the outcome of his sessions with BLK JKS will surely break new musical grounds for both acts.

"The chance to collaborate with BLK JKS, the most exciting new band from South Africa, is something I might not have done were it not for Smirnoff asking me to be part of the Smirnoff Experience 'Mash-up Street' in South Africa. The concept of mixing and remixing music genres and cultures is something that continues to inspire me. I'm really excited to share the new track we're making and the live show with the entire world," says DJ Tiesto.

Calling idle minds!

The challenge (should you choose to accept)....

After conversations surrounding the only Billy Joel song I like, and the need for a current version I am wondering if anyone wants to play:

A "We didn't start the fire" for our lifetime.

After a small debate - 1980 to 2010. Good round numbers. Open to events/people from 1979 if well motivated though. Global.
:)

wtf?

AbaThembuland? Rock on!

Also wtf: Pics of ET's funeral day.And allegations he was a homo kiddie fiddler.

Final wtf goes to Juliaaassss: apparently he chucked a chair at delegates attending the ANCYL's Limpopo Provincial Conference because they supported the incumbent Chairman, not Malema's pick. That he had to strong-arm and blatantly rig the Limpopo ANCYL elections to get his guy in speaks volumes - I'm just not sure what volumes. He's a ruthless and canny politician. Maybe he's just lost sight of dynamics in his home province? Must be hard to keep up I guess. He was after all in both Mthatha and Harare over Easter. Shame.
