What? The funk.

So, as i write this, i find myself in a bit of a funk. The fact that i just used the word 'funk' twice does not make me feel good. What is happening to me? Could be worse, Brett, could be bae, but we all know that bae is not a word. It is not! STOPPIT! #BaeWatch For the last two weeks and coinciding with sickness vibes which could be a chicken/egg scenario i have just been [...]

Here’s to a much improved 2017!

2017 is just around the corner... A lot of people agree that 2016 wasn't a super great year... David Bowie, Alan Rickman, Harper Lee, Ronnie Corbett, Prince, Muhammad Ali, Anton Yelchin, Kenny Baker [R2D2], Gene Wilder, Arnold Palmer, Leonard Cohen, Robert Vaughn, Andrew Sachs [Manuel from Fawlty Towers], John Glenn, Zsa Zsa Gabor, George Michael. Those are just some of the names of famous people we know who died this year and maybe this felt [...]

Whose notification is it anyways?

When i click on my Facebook notifications i see names of people that have written things i have not yet seen. Some of them make me sigh internally and dread clicking cos i just know it's going to be a fight or an excuse or a blame, while others make me do the interesting sound internally [is there an interesting sound? Something between a hm and an ah perhaps?] cos i think there is a good [...]

An open letter to… but who?

This started as a status for the 'book but got way too long... Guess who's back? [what follows is a quote from fcuk brett] "Brett Brett Brett!! I notice you're copying my posts on your FB wall. How do I know that? Because I'm on your friendslist, and your political doctrinated propoganda is sickening, as I'm also in the ministry and would not allow you near my church here in Cape Town. Was nice church [...]

An inconvenient preach

6 With what shall I come before the Lord     and bow down before the exalted God? Shall I come before him with burnt offerings,     with calves a year old? 7 Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams,     with ten thousand rivers of olive oil? Shall I offer my firstborn for my transgression,     the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul? 8 He has shown you, O mortal, what is good.     And what does [...]

Friends

An area i am well rich in is friends. That might seem trite or bumper stickery or Oprah-informed or something, but it's not. It is an absolute truth. If there is an area that i feel most privileged in in life it is in the area of Friendship. i struggle to get my head around it. i read a quote on the internet that said: Good friends talk about their sex lives. Best friends talk [...]

Have you read ‘i, church’?

For anyone who doesn't know, last year i self-published a book called 'i, church'. On the back cover of the book there is a bit of a summation and part of it reads like this: To those of you who believe church is the worst thing ever: You're right! To those of you who believe church is the best thing ever: You're right! i call this book, 'i, church' because more than a building or [...]

A Frikkin Hashtag: #YouHadMeAt… not to be confused with #YouHadMeat

Last week, Chris from Australia @Taliesyne, joined me for my A Frikkin Hashtag Twitterer game with the Jerry Maguire inspired tagline, #YouHadMeAt: At one point Chris’ house was being flooded by a violent storm raging outside and he comes on and is apologising for not being on the game and i’m like, “ARE YOU KIDDING ME RIGHT NOW, GO SAVE YOUR HOUSE!” He did and returned to the game later when i couldn’t be around [...]

A Frikkin Hashtag: #MyLastBucketListItemis…

Two weeks ago @KeshaTedder [aka Binks] and i challenged Hashtag gamers to come up with their best suggestions for the Tag #AndThenTheWorldEnded and there were some great suggestions worth checking out. Last week it was @TheatreAfrica co-hosting with me as we looked at #MyLastBucketListItemIs which saw 306 people come up with 1289 tweets with an audience of 727, 406 people… We were quite guy heavy as a stat of  78.1% of those playing tells you.

A Frikkin Hashtag round 2: And Then The World Ended

Last week was the second official week of the South African presence on the International Trending Hashtagging game app under the hashtag @AFrikkinHashtag [Say it out loud]. Despite it happening right in the middle of all the #FeesMustFall action, we still somehow managed to briefly trend in South Africa for the first time while also trending solidly at number 4 in the States.
