Am still in pre-prod for THE ALBUM (Unveiled) I just have a million songs coming out of me. I think we will go to studio mid Feb. This is very exciting, but it's also a little scary. Green was 5 tracks, this album is more than 10 tracks EEEEEKK!!!

The plan is to have the first single 'RADIO READY' by end March... We'll have to wait and see :)
In the meantime, go ahead and listen to songs off the EP on MySpace, imeem or join the Facebook page.

The journey continues...

Way-back-when-Wednesday (Doogie Howser MD)

OMG!! I used to have the BIGGEST crush on Doogie. I think that's why I enjoy How I Met Your Mother, although Barney isn't my crush (Ted is LOL).

A 16 yr old Dr? Come on, how can you NOT love it? And his friend Vinnie was the best :)

Doogie Howser MD, was my shit!!!

Aaahh, the good ol' days!!

Sunday Sexy

I haven't really been focusing on men lately. Josh was fun, but I discovered one man that made me say 'Thank you God for another beautiful man'.

I was watching Greek and Ashleigh had a thing for a guy she kept calling 'The Hotness Monster'. OMG he is def a hotness monster. After a little bit of a stalkerish google search I found out that his name is Jesse Williams.

Behold this weeks SUNDAY SEXY!!!

According this write-up he is 27 & he is in the sequel of the sisterhood of the travelling...*swoon*

I love visiting Kanye's blog LMAO!!! Pleas e read this rant that I just read :)

Why wont people just let him enjoy his week without hacking into his accounts and annoying him. You don't' see how Fresh his suit is? I know he was upset, but I couldn't help laughing at "A picture says a thousand words...Look how fresh my suit is... Nuff said"

Let him be great! LMBAO!!

PS: I do think that haters need to go on vacation for a bit, seriously!

Way-back-when-Wednesday (Cheers)

I wish I could go to a dive where everybody knows my name... Sigh!! Marcee and I are on the search for a pub that we can frequent without feeling grimey!

Cheers intro

My dad and I used to bond over Cheers, maybe that's why I grew up to love pubs so much LOL! I REALLY want a Cheers box set

Lesson learnt # 1

I've learnt many lessons on this amazing journey that I'm embarking on. Many of them pretty simple in theory and others that just blew my mind.

This weeks lesson: EVERYONE IS AN EXPERT!!!

When I started out 3.5 years ago, I couldn't read or write music and just didn't know how I was even going to start doing this 'music thing' on my own. I chose the person who believed in me the most to do the 'manager thing' and we set out on this journey clueless, but hopeful.

The very first person we attracted was a jack-of-all-trades-master-of-none-ASSHOLE!!! He played 15 million instruments and knew EVERYONE (SMH just thinking about this guy). Barf! He basically wanted to take over and for about a week I was so grateful that someone was helping I went along with it. And then I happened to voice my opinion and JOATMONA suddenly blew his top and told me that I didn't have talent! Ouch! As it turns out said ASSHOLE didn't have any contacts at all. JACK ASS!!

Now I will be the first to admit that nobody was as bad as JOATMONA, but I would say 3 out every 5 I meet are all EXPERTS on something.

I don't have a problem with people who are experts, but I DISLIKE chancers. I can tell the chancers from the real thing now. A great man doesn't need to go on about his achievements, but chancers will always tell you about who their friends with and how many great things they achieved in 19-VOETSEK!!

After getting so much advice from chancers I've decided that I'm going to do what makes ME happy and will ask for advice when I need it. I love getting feedback from people, but I just need to selective about whose advice I take :)

Jacsharp & dayjob stuff

The best part of the day job is when I get to interview local muso's and this week I'm playing snippets of an interview I did with Jules from Jacsharp.

If you asked me to describe their music, I would have a hard time doing it, so I'm not even going to attempt to. Here is how they describe their music:

What do you get when you mix an electronic drummer, rock/funk guitarist, afro/jazz bassist and a pop/jazz singer? A completely new, eclectic genre of music that's unique to Cape Town based band, jacSharp. If you dig to the core of this band, you will find something magical that has been built on a foundation of nothing but good times, good tunes and keen understanding of musical diversity. All of this has been melted down, mixed together and energetically thrown at their enthralled audiences. Just watch this space...

Check them out on Facebook and MySpace to listen to their songs.

Oh and tune into the Midnight Xpress on Radio 2000 with me to hear the interview this week :)

Why must I cry????

THIS... This!!! I have nothing to say. Just SMDH

I am currently in pre-prod with main-producer Mark Goliath. So far we have 4 songs... 6 more to go. I will be working with other people as well, but right now I'm focusing on work with Mark!
It's soooo amazing to be back in the creative space again. I love it!!

The new music is like Green on steroids ha ha ha. We start recording first week of Feb... EEK!!

Don't forget that I will be performing at the Women's Show at the CTICC on Sunday 22 Feb at 15hoo. Come by and say hi, there will be copies of Green available for sale as well. I'll be there on Friday and Saturday as well- Yay!!

See you there!!
I was featured in the BANDWATCH section of this months issue of YourLMG!! Thanks Mike!

Listen to tracks on the Myspace or at imeem and join the Facebook page.

Miss Lira

It's no secret how much I LOOOVE Lira. I still have not bought a copy of her new album. The first 2 singles that I've heard kick serious butt. The one track is 'Wa Mpaleha' and the second one I heard is called 'Hamba'.

Enjoy the smooth sounds of Miss Lira.

Lira 'Wa Mpaleha'

Good stuff!!!

History made!!!

Today the 44th president of the United States was sworn in. I don't need to tell you why this is historic. In a past post I said that I was too young to truly appreciate Nelson Mandela becoming the first democratically elected president of SA. Now that I am old enough to understand the significance of Obama becoming president I'm a little overwhelmed.

The whole world knows that things are not going to be easy for Obama, no one said it was going to be. I wish him and the American people lots of luck.
We are going to be voting soon and I can't help but wonder what the future holds for South Africa...

Working on new music

Okay so it's a new year and I'm working on a new album. It's gonna be called 'UNVEILED'.

Yesterday I met with producer and musician Mark Goliath. He is gonna be working on 10 tracks with me on the album. I'm really exited because I've started writing new songs and I've grown as a songwriter. My house has turned into a mini-makeshift-studio for a while...

Green is still doing amazing things. Tru FM has playlisted Nobody Knows... YAY!!! So if Tru FM is your fave station then call in and request NOBODY KNOWS by BLACK PORCELAIN.

Music over at Myspace, join the Facebook page and check out all the songs on imeem!!!
PS: did my FIRST radio interview with Doug Anderson. I'm gonna try and get it loaded over at the Radio 2000 website. It was a lot of fun. Doug is all about supporting local music :)


I LOVED 21 Jump street when I was a kid. My mom was NOT allowed to talk to me when this show was on... Even though I was supposed to be in bed. I don't remember too much about it, but I do remember thinking that Richard Grieco (recently saw him a UBER-C-Grade-made-for-TV-movie) and Johnny Depp were kind of cute.

Holly Robinson became my girl man!! She was representing LOL!!

The intro kicked serious butt!! Aaah the 80's!!

There's even a fansite dedicated to the show.

Don't stop Femi, don't stop

I can't say why I like this song, but I just do. Marcee think it's a little explict, but I'm gonna let Femi have this one.

Femi Kuti- Beng beng beng

Femi Kuti rocks. BENG BENG!!

What I learnt in 2008

The celebrations are over and people are back at work. I had to work on new years eve/day, so I couldn't really get out of control (thank God). Not partying gave me time to reflect without a hang over :)

In 2007 I did a post like this before the beginning of 2008, it was inspired by a post I saw over at Sickamore's blog. I know we're 10 days into Jan, but I've been a little distracted!

Caz/Tso/Ms Porcelain etc etc

Sitting on my red couch (Cape Town, South Africa)

  • There are TOO MANY 'cheap boasters' in the world. My dad describes 'cheap boasters' as people who don't even (this is a direct translation, so it might not make sense) 'nails to scratch themselves'. In 2008 I met WAAAY toooo many of these people. You know the type: always talking about what they have/had, how men/women are always stalking them because their love is 'like WHOAH', talking about their 'fortune' and generally making sure that every conversation leads back to how fabulous they are.

  • NEVER GET COMPLACENT. Once at a team workshop we had a speaker, Dr Thibane, who said 'never arrive' because once you 'arrive' you stop achieving. People who have arrived usually turn into cheap boasters and believe me when I say cheap boasters NEVER EVER live up to their self-created hype.

  • A person who has achieved great things usually doesn't need to keep going on about what they've achieved. BECAUSE A GREAT MAN/WOMAN NEEDS NO INTRODUCTION!!

  • Gratitude STILL rocks. I am always amazed at how being grateful for what you have brings even more wonderful people/experiences into your life.

  • I learnt that if you need to stick to what you believe because EVERYONE will have an opinion on EVERYTHING in your life. From how you are growing your hair, to how to rehearse with your band and just about anything else you can think about.

  • I CAN live without TV. The last flat I lived in was fully furnished, so when I moved into my new flat I didn't think about getting a TV. I've been TV-less for about 6 months and I'm not any less entertained and I've read more books and had more ME time than I've ever had.

  • My mom is my ROCK!!

  • I'm not going to see all my good friends get married and have babies, because some people die young. A very good friend of mine was in a car crash and she didn't make it. I was so devastated because we (my friends and I) are always making plans for the future together. We even joke about who will get too drunk at whose wedding. There are no guarantees in life.

  • Heath Ledger gave the performance of his LIFE in Dark Knight. I want to make every performance that I have of 'dark night proportions'. Go hard or go home!!

  • Taking the mojo out for a walk really boosts your confidence. Not all flirting has to lead to sex/switching numbers or a relationship. Yessir!!

  • I have a lot of admiration for Kanye West. I don't know how many times in the past year I've said to Marc that I wish I had his... And start mentioning a million things.

  • I REALLY dislike working for other people. Ever since I left advertising I have worked from home more times than I've been at the office. I work harder and no 2 days are ever the same.

Obviously I learnt more than that, but those were the ones that stood out for me.

What did you learn in 2008?
