"The Missing Beat" - My First Channel 24 Column

One of SA’s biggest brands is accused of being actively unpatriotic. 5FM has responded well to the accusation, explaining radio format and the music selection process: this isn’t about defending my workplace. I inadvertently will, because frankly, you couldn’t be more wrong than to accuse any South African broadcaster of being anti-local. It’s not that simple.

This topic has been discussed almost too much recently. But you're welcome to add your two "sense".

What I think of Mel Gibson's Beaver...

Medication and therapy have both failed Walter Black (Gibson), leaving him with only one other option: a deep bottle of booze, and a short jump off a shower rail. In his drunken stupor, Walter finds an old beaver puppet, which accompanies him through his unsuccessful suicide. And it’s the beaver that saves his life.
 I used to love Mel Gibson. And let’s make no mistake, whether director Jodie Foster likes it or not, The Beaver ultimately became all about Mel Gibson. This former fondness allowed me to put aside less fortunate events in Gibson’s recent history and watch The Beaver as if nothing had ever happened. I’d urge you to do the same. Because The Beaver is nothing like any movie you’ve ever seen... (read the full review)

A very awesome fellow bloggerer helped me fixed the pic uploading problem. We are thus cured of the dull world of picturelessness.

Praise cheeses.


Only 3 More days to put SHOES ON FEET!

You may have seen me tweeting sporadically about the Put Foot Rally. It’s an awesome trip to support Bobs For Good, Bob Skinstad’s charity. The gist of BFG is putting shoes on chilluns foots. Find out more about what they do here.

The teams travelling with Bobs For Good through seven countries in Southern Africa have been delivering some shoes on the way. And there’s amazing footage and photos of some very, very happy faces as they receive a pair of sturdy, tough shoes. The team I’m openly supporting is Shoes on Feet. They’ve been blogging and keeping us up to date for the past two weeks, so if you’d like to see all the awesome work the Put Foot Rally has been doing, click here.

The reason I’ll be punting this post ALL DAY is because there are only three days left. The teams are trying to raise as much money as possible for BFG, and in so doing put a lot more shoes on a lot more feet!

C’mon - it’s the beginning of the month, you have a tiny bit of cash extra that could go to a really good cause, and really be appreciated, by some very happy faces :) Click here to donate just a little bit of moneys. And write #sheosonfeet in your message :)

This is also one of 5FM’s Youngblood 5 causes.

Let me know what you think about it!!

OKay, I'm not that angry, but intensely agitated might sum it up.

I have not been able to upload pics all week. Along with many other blogspot users. They say the problem has been fixed, but alas, I find it has not. FOr me, anyway.

I have resolved to keep blogging anyway. The posts might be a bit pap with the 'thousands' words a picture contributes, but meh, right?

@#*!! @#*&SA!!!!

Eh hem.
