Such a big ego...

I loved this song when I heard it at the beginning of the year. They dont call her the 'mighty Beyonce' for nothing. This one gets a pass from me.

Beyonce - Ego

Sometimes things dont have to be so complicated. Love it!!

I'm ecstatic!!!

I've been away a long time, working hard at making my dreams come true.

I have AMAZING news:
I was chosen to be on of 20 people in the country to take part in a Red Bull Music Academy Taster in the first week of July. I am soooo excited because its going to be a week of learning more about music as well collaborating with other musos. Yipeeeee!!

I even went out an bought a pair of shoes to celebrate my good news. How gorgeous are they?

Me in my Red Bull Academy T-shirt and brand new shoes

My other good news is that I am going into studio to finish what I started a few months ago (before I got fired & screwed over by a slippery promoter): recording the album. The name of the album has changed as well. More about that later.

I LOOOOVE cake wrecks!

Sorry for silence. As per usual, there is good news then bad news then good news then bad news etc etc. I wont bore you with the details.

While Marcee and I were over at cake wrecks we spotted a classic post. I laughed so hard for so long... OMG!
Okay so Dilbert fans will know more about this than me, but apparently his dog loves exorcising people of their stupidity.
Some people wanted that quote on their co-workers cake and got this instead:
Stupity LMBAO! Hoo.. heeee. haaa.. heee.. hoooo

My discovery- Khaled Hosseini

I read a lot and there was a time that Caz and I didn't have a TV so we have gone through a lot of books.

I have just read The Kite Runner and before that I read A Thousand Splendid Suns. I was moved by both books to say the least! It's been a while since I have reads books that moved me. I mean I laughed, cried and got angry, really there was a point I wanted to get in the book and a beat a few people up!!!
Khaled is a great writer, when I read these books I lived with the characters. Okay enough said just go read them, you'll know what I'm talking about.

I'm note sure if I want to go watch the movie though... I read the Da Vinci Code and love loved it and then I saw the movie talk about anti-climax!!! Okay maybe I will go watch it, I'm a sucker for torture! I digress, GO READ THESE BOOKS!

I think I dig the Kid

I love music and I love music videos even more!!!

I have been hearing about this guy for a while now but I wasn't really paying attention. Until I heard the song "poke her face" on Kanye's blog, then I started paying attention.

I saw this video the other day and I love it. I think I hear this song in my sleep. Check it out and tell me what you think.

The song is called Day 'n' Night

Way-back-when-Wednesday (SWV)

Oh my goodness, it's been a while since I've even thought about SWV.

There wasn't a girl my age who didn't know the words to this song. I remember how horrified I was the first time I saw Coko's nails. I had never seen anything like that in my entire life. I remember thinking that she obviously doesn't have to wash dishes or scrub the floors LMBAO!!

SWV - Weak

Good performances, bad pictures LOL!!

Okay, so I've had a great time this past week. But we have unfortunately been very bad at capturing these moments. So here are the bad pics for these past amazing days.

That is me opening for LKJ. Marcee was out in the crowd hence bad pics SMH forever.

LKJ, we were 'backstage' hence the halfway decent pic

Me jamming to 'more time'. I couldnt keep still

Pics of the crowd... Why Marcee? Why?

Last minute rehearsal at Rickys church on Sunday.

And me up on stage at Best Ugly... At least I think that's me... Sigh.

Oh My Legend!!!

So winter is creeping in and Cape Town has been rainy the last few days.Everyone I know seems to be buying soup, I was never into soup until I got to Cape town. Now as soon as I see a grey cloud, all I seem to think about is soup.

People are diving deep deep into their wardrobes to get their coats,boots,Polonecks etc....

It happened that on one of those rainy days, Caz and I were on the internets doing research. We decided to check out blogs, you know visit friends...

And there he was in his golden glory!!! Oh my, the sun seemed to come out and it was was summer again...Yes summer was back and why you may ask? Please see below...

Please behold the Legend that is John. Need I say more!

I just have to thank the good folks at A tribe Called Next
This the perfect way to say goodbye to summer and also a promise of things to come.
