Life’s a Beach – watch this immediately!

25 Jul

Chris Stear (aka Oafie) you little biscuit! Oafs is a friend that I used to toddle around in nappies with along with his triplet siblings and older boet. Our folks all used to braai and drink beers together back in the day and we’re all still in touch. He is literally living the dream now and Earth Touch are documenting it – the life we all secretly wish we had instead of being stuck in our daily desk jobs. Chris is living the ultimate “beach bum” lifestyle in Mozambique. After watching the trailer and the 1st episode of Life’s a Beach it was so awesome to see that happy smiley Oafie face again! It’s been too long  my friend!

Out on the 16th of November. Can . Not . Bloody . Wait .

 

What ever on earth will we do when The Twilight Saga concludes after this film. What ever shall we do. Sigh.

Birthday present for me!? Why Elton you just shouldn’t have.

27 Feb

Just stop what you’re doing right now and focus here for a minute. I’m being serious people.

You know, Sir Elton John called me up this morning and said, “Mel, just for your up and coming birthday in March I will come and perform live in Abu Dhabi. Just for you.” Gushing profusely I exclaimed, “oh why Elton how awfully kind of you, you just shouldn’t have”. But really, he should. And is.

Absolute legend - Sir Elton John.

Actually, it was the super informed Scottish Lass that messaged me this morning with this amazing news that Sir Elton John will be performing live in Abu Dhabi at the YAS Arena, Yas Island on Thursday 29th March. I’m ecstatic. I’m already singing and chair dancing right now, as we speak, to all my fav’s – Rocket Man, Bennie and the Jets, Tiny Dancer – could actually just carry on forever here. This is just the best news ever.

Can NOT wait.

Tickets aren’t on sale yet but watch http://thinkflash.ae/ for details.

Um sorry, Madonna who!?

Just because.

15 Feb

This is just because it’s Wednesday, it’s the weekend in the desert and a little eye candy never really hurt anyone. I present to you my favourites. And because one picture will never suffice, I’ve given you two. You can thank me later.

Enjoy tarts.

Safe House + Ryan + Cape Town = movie winner wena.

11 Feb

It really didn’t take much to convince me to go and see Safe House, the new action thriller staring Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds. Skop, skit and donder is not my typical choice but I’m never adverse to a really good action. And what, with a movie set in Cape Town and Ryan Reynolds in one of the lead roles – I trotted straight on down to the cinema to see it. Here’s the trailer (which does it no justice mind you):

Admittedly I was a little scared in parts – it really was an action thriller, and the thriller part always freaks me out – bullets flying out of nowhere which resulted in me nearly jumping out of my seat, but nevertheless it was pure brilliance. Probably one of the best movies I’ve seen recently. And no smart ass, I’m not being biased because it was set in Cape Town (well maybe just a tad) but do yourself a favour and go see it. I’m not going to say much more than that, it’s one of those movies that you have to go and see.

And this is just because at any relevant point I’ll always post this pic for the ladies.

For those of you who actually saw him in Cape Town. I’m not jealous. Not jealous AT ALL.

Four Phantoms and Nicole Scherzinger.

11 Feb

Now I’m going to tell you a little secret, and that is that I won’t even deny for one second that I have an obscene love for the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical, Phantom of the Opera. I love the theatre in general but I particularly like this show. I think I 1st fell in love with it at the silly age of 6 when I 1st saw it at the theatre and since then twice again. It’s probably one of the best musical scores ever written, according to moi.

I then came across this on You Tube the other day (all comments and judgement are best kept to yourself at this point thank you kindly). Nicole Scherzinger as Christine and 4 of the most acclaimed Phantoms in the history of theatre (the one with the beard is particularly soft on the eye, good choice Andrew). At first I was very apprehensive. Not of the Phantoms – they’ve all earned their stripes – but Nicole…really!? What is Nicole doing singing the role of Christine at the Royal Variety Performance in December last year? I just struggled to see the connection and wondered who the hell chose her?

Nicole as Christine!? Struggling to see it.

Well now my peach, you just reserve your judgement. You will be just as shocked as I was. I think she’s possibly one of the hottest woman on the face of the earth, but sing opera!? I’ve just always put her in that “Pussy Cat Dolls” “stripper” that can only “shaky bon bon” kinda box. Head out the gutter now puh-lease. AND SHE’S NOT. Just watch this. Strap yourself into your chair otherwise you ARE going to fall off it backwards from pure shock.

Yusses, she owns it and is seriously talented. I’ll even go out a nerd tangent here and say she’s WAY better than Sarah Brightman and definitely not an eye sore like Sarah Brightman. I feel a little bad now for having such low expectations of her in this performance. You and I can now be friends again after you slammed Rachel Crow on X-Factor. You might actually know what you’re talking about. Kudo’s. 

Oh, and I’m not really a nerd. It’s called culture people. So there.

Trevor Noah on Jay Leno.

11 Jan

Now here’s a Saffa that’s doing us proud. Trevor Noah is an absolute legend, hysterically funny and probably my favourite South African comedian. He made an appearance on the Jay Leno show recently which is just awesome, watch it here. He just rips the hell out of racism, as usual.

One of my favourite clips is the Black accent one that he does. Cracks me up beyond belief every time, without fail. Do yourself a favour and watch this:

And just one more to boot – I can’t resist.

 

Hilarious. Just love it. Happy weekend desert peeps!

Just heart a concert. And Coldplay were insane on NYE.

10 Jan

From the ballet in a posh frock to rock in leather boots and a fedora hat – this festive season went from one extreme to the next. Mixing  it up a bit, you know. Keeps it interesting. We decided to bring in 2012 with Coldplay. Now, Coldplay is one of those bands that has been on my “must see” list purely because I love their music and have heard their live performances are brilliant. Other bands on that list are Pink, Stereophonics and Foo Fighters. Could really do with seeing the Foo Fighters soon, just love them – hopefully they’ll release some more tour dates soon. This song is my obsession this week.

 

Anyways, back to the point. We made the trip to Abu Dhabi from Dubai. Waited in traffic forever. Waited in a que forever. 4 and a half  hours later we were in the concert venue. Now, I was not going to let anything piss me off on New Years Eve and just kinda went with it, staying chipper. I will say now, Think Flash Events better jack it up. I am definitely not ever thinking Flash Events ever again. Not now, not ever. Appalling organization – honestly, I have never.

Right, so there we were, in the concert venue. It’s 10:30 pm on NYE and I have not as much had a bevvie pass my lips. Pathetic. I just didn’t know if I could face another que but myself and the Fab Hairdresser just did it. Sometimes you just got to suck it up and power on princess to get a result. I stratgegized at this point so that I did not have to que ever again at this concert. 6 glasses of wine in 2 pint glasses, a Jagermeister shot and I was sorted. Very lady like, I know. It was nice, for a change, to wake up on the 1st day of the year without a screaming hangover.

Coldplay arrived by chopper, I’m assuming because they couldn’t get through the massive amount of traffic. Enough bleating. THEY WERE INSANE!!!  All the waiting to see them was well worth it and I’d do it all over again (with a hip flask). There really is nothing better than an amazing live performance and Chris Martin and the boys did an incredible job. The energy that each one of them throw into their performance is just beyond brilliant. You just get the sense that they truly are trying their absolute best to entertain the crowd. They played all the songs I wanted to hear instead of just punting their new album like most artists do and ended off by counting down into 2012 with us followed by a gorgeous fireworks display. Lukka.

A great way to kick off 2012. It can only get better from here.

Blue Ivy Carter.

8 Jan

Imagine being Blue Ivy Carter right now. Beyonce is your Mom and Jay Z is your Dad. Need I say more!?

So Beyonce gave birth last night in New York to their daughter Blue. Not quite sure why celebs always have to go for these off the beaten track kinda names!? This is at least what E! Online says the name is but nothing has been confirmed. It is a pretty name. At least it’s not a boy though, cos he’d BE MY BOY BLUE…!? Yoh, lame.

Let’s be real here though, Beyonce and Jay Z could name their child Piglet Muppet and the child would still be way more famous and cooler than any one of us heathens. Reality – check.

Congrats to the power couple.

Laughter. Food for the soul.

4 Jan

I think it might just be my favourite thing to do. Laugh that is. I am also not one to laugh politely under my breath in a lady like manner. Oh puh-lease now. I personally think that a deserving laugh should come right from the depth of your tummy and be belted out. This is best achieved by laughing with friends. I have 2 friends in particular – The Bestie from China and Scottish Lass – and we all 3 pretty much cackle in the same way. I’d love to get all 3 of us together as the 2 of them have not met each other. There really is just nothing better than making people laugh and laughing with good mates.

Anywho, if you can’t just create your own laughter (shame) I have some suggestions for you which has left me roaring out with laughter lately, both introduced to me by the ever fabulous Scottish Lass. I’m not really one to watch loads of TV but I do like watching good series when I come across them. These 2 are MUST’s.

Enter Miranda Hart from the series Miranda. 

Miranda Hart from "Miranda"

 

Do yourself a favour and just watch this series. She is the most awkward, tallest, clumsiest human being ever, the comedy is rather silly but hysterically funny. Her trot is my absolute best and Scottish Lass and I have even resorted to doing it ourselves and the screaming with laughter after a little trot. I know, we’re a mare.

The next is Karl Pilkington from An Idiot Abroad.

Karl Pilkington from "An Idiot Abroad"

 

I’ve only just started watching this series but already think it’s AMAZE. This man is just SO miserable! Just look at his face! And Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, the producers, send him off to the most obscure places in the world purposefully trying to piss him off even more by crazy adventures. Some would call this a dream come true to travel the world. Oh, not Karl, he is so unimpressed by it all. He is seriously so sour and his face just shows his utter disgust all the time and this cracks me up the most, especially when he says, “are they having a laugh”. Crisis it’s hilarious.

Happy laughing! You can thank me later.
