Terry Pratchett on achieving world peace…

i recently finished reading Terry Pratchett's 'A Slip of the Keyboard: Reflections on Life, Death and Hats'.  For anyone who might live in a sucking vacuum, Terry Pratchett was my favourite fiction author and most memorably creator of the Discworld series of which there are 41 amazing books. Sho, it's hard to believe it's coming up to two years since he passed away in his sleep after struggling with Alzheimer's and this book is a [...]

Making it all up Improv-style at the Masque

Last night i was a Combine Harvester. Or was it a Combined Harvester. Hard to tell. But then i was also a Scottish Horseman slash barman who got slashed but if it all took place in the walk someone took in their mind, did it really happen at all? i was washed up on a desert island and within 12 minutes had managed to start a fire and burn all of our clothes.

the Entitlement factor

Middle lane flowing fairly quickly and i was in the right lane as i was heading straight to Salt River.

A Series of Un-phoned-tunate Events

So i had my phone stolen out of my hand at a red traffic light yesterday. Not my finest moment and followed by a combination of feelings of sad and angry and maybe embarrassed. But there are a billion worse things happening to a billion other people [like Nick who just had his house robbed and a whole lot of expensive video equipment stolen, or my mate Napoleon who it seems has been wrongfully arrested and [...]

The Bad Habits of Jesus

It has a very different way of looking at Jesus in terms of picking up some things that might be seen as bad habits - He spat, He procrastinated, He was constantly disappearing, He offended people, He hung out with bad people and so on - and showing how they point [...]

Movie Review: The ‘Lion’ King

tbV and i went to watch the movie Lion at the Labia theatre last night.  Let's get this out of the way from the start: Dev Patel is one of my favourite actors. i would probably watch him in an Adam Sandler movie. Well, maybe not THAT, but most other stuff. So although we were grappling between Lion and La La Land and even put up a Facebook poll to see where the crowds leaned [...]
