Foo Fighters Do Falling Down

I’m a big Foo Fighters fan. Dave Grohl in particular just gives that vibe that it’s all about the rock. Driving guitars, heart-pounding drums and growling lyrics tempered with some amazing melodies and a massive dose of stage presence make them one of the bands that appear on my “must see live” list before I […]

SPL285654_001

I’ll admit I know next to nothing about fashion and I can’t really stand Lady Gaga, so when I see that she got the prestigious Fashion Icon award at the Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards, I must say that my immediate reaction was WHAT? Then I saw what she wore. Some of you […]

Blake Lively Gets The Goss Going With Nude Iphone Pics

Blake-Lively-Naked

Famous people just aren’t the same as you and me. It’s understandable when they get upset with the papparazzi hounding them, taking photo’s of them in their worst or most embarrassing moments. Sometimes however they do things for which they only have themselves to blame. Like take naked pictures of yourself on your Iphone. Now […]

Is Animal Cruelty The New Sport In SA?

You may have read Joe Social’s post about the unfortunate vervet monkey that was burned for being a witch? Well it seems that not too many days can pass in South Africa without some cruel dimwit making up for his own cowardice by taking it out on an animal. As evidenced in Benoni, where a […]

Playboy South Africa Cover Model Is Enlightened

Ok- not in the the traditional sense of the word.

Somebody Has Some Explaining To Do

You may recall the piece that Asstastic posted on the end of the world. Well the good news for all of us is that she was right to be sceptical. After all, nobody really believed it did they?   Harold Camping spent month’s telling us that the end is nigh. Looks like it’s more a […]

Friday The 13th Has Socialyz Worried

TheFrenchConnection hates most Fridays

Do you suffer from Friggatriskaidekaphobia? Or fear of Friday the 13th as it’s more commonly known. I’m starting to think Joe Social and Asstastic do. Maybe it’s because today is Friday the 13th? Or perhaps it’s because TheFrenchConnection’s alias is Jason? And he had his 13th birthday on Friday the 13th. And he owns a […]

Toiletgate – Malema And Hofmeyer Can Learn From Dinosaurs

If you’re old enough, you may remember a show on M-Net in the early 90’s called, Dinosaurs. It didn’t last too long, due mainly to it not being very good, but like every sitcom (yes even those featuring large animatronic dinosaurs) there is the odd funny moment. One that always springs to mind was an […]

Comatose Cops Caught Sleeping On The Job

SAPS sleep clinics a great success

We all know that the long arm of the law works long hours. We understand the pressures of the job. And we sympathise when we read about our law enforcement personnel being killed or injured in the line of duty, but we can’t really let this lie (excuse the pun). Two of our boys in […]

Cape Town Adventurer Ray Chaplin To Conquer The World

You know how it feels when you go to the gym and have a 5km run? Maybe knocking out a few km’s on the exercise bikes and some time on the rowing machine? Tiring enough in a 1 hour gym session. You just want to get home and chill for a bit, feeling pretty good […]
