And the Awesomeness Award for Feb goes to Alicia Keys....this is too amazing!
So I know I've been away a while and haven't posted anything in ages... I'd apologise but lets be honest, you hardly noticed. and apologising isn't really my style.
Moving along swiftly to this months recipient of the Umfaan Awesomeness Award for December 2012, to see previous recipients of this award you'll have to come inside my brain...good luck finding your way around in there... and please don't feed the squirrels...
Where was I?
Oh yeah the award has to go to Deadpool in the video below... if you don't know what Gangnam style is (1 BILLION views in 5 months!), please unplug your computer and throw it away.
I want that outfit!!
I love people who don't take themselves too seriously.
How many Mp3's have you got? Dont worry I'll just wait here while you go look....
What do you mean you dont know how to find them all...
Search *.mp3 in my computer search bar
Got your number?
Now for some simple maths...
Take that number x 150,000
That's how much(in dollars) you've stolen from the music industry
Watch Rob Reid's brilliant video below...
Up until now my favourite robot was Asimo (yes I have a favourite robot doesn't everyone) but now I want a CHARLI-2
CHARLI-2 is a five-foot tall robot from Virginia Tech that has incredible balance (and dance skills!). The Navy is using CHARLI-2 for research on its firefighting robot of the future...which seems like a boring use of such an awesome piece of tech.
Though it's obviously not as hilarious as watching the chubby lead singer of PSY run around and dance, it's still pretty cool to see a skinny robot pull off those moves too. Read more about the CHARLI-2 robot at Wired
I cant help but wonder just how advanced the technology is that the military has if this is the kind of stuff that is being shown to the public...
Oh wow...that totally didnt sound paranoid
I seriously need to put in a screening process before making friends...
There's Something (Off) About Mary
Normally I don't feel the need to explain what or who I'm talking about...I assume that everyone will just figure it out along the way, however Mary Scary is the construct of a seriously insane mind... who I was first introduced to a couple of years back when She was performing at Beefcakes in Cape Town and since both Mary and her alter ego have become friends of mine.
Born and Raised in the small town of Dayton, Ohio, she moved to the bright lights of NYC. There she was used and abused by people, but as a result she realised her "TRUTH". One day a "prophet" (who was actually just a crack head) told her that the secret to Love, Life and Rock Super-stardom lay in the mysterious city of Cape Town, South Africa.
The Drag Rock Lesbian Superstar who won the 2007 Hooter Wet T-shirt Competition (later disqualified for fly kicking a referee in the balls) and lead singer of Tokyo & the Sexxwails plus some other stuff Im way to fucking lazy to research at 04:30am on a Sunday.
OK lets make this easy...watch the following vids ... you'll get the idea
So here are some of the highlights from when we went to go see her show in JHB last week...I'm going to be brief because Im tired, and by now Im sure half of you have stopped reading cause there are too many words and you'd rather play Plants vs Zombies
Champagne Le Roux has a thing for Hobo Man!
Champagne Le Roux the hysterical opening performer for Mary's show instantly took a liking to Shaun, and even sang him a "love song" Shaun took this in his stride as he usually does, maybe he's more use to being hit on by guys in drag than he's letting on.
Tammy got kicked out the way continuously but I think that was more a case of Champagne just marking her territory!
Mary was funny as always and alot of fun to watch...I would show you the clips I took of the show... but Shaun still hasn't managed to upload them for me... so you'll just have to wait.
Im not sure who ended up being more confused Liezel or Champagne... after their conversation...and Mary ended up taking a fancy to Liezel later on...seems Lesbian Drag Rockstars have a thing for plaas meisies...go figure...Personally I think Liezel should go for it...just so I can see her fathers expression at Christmas dinner.
Ummm.... Other stuff happened...
Fuck this Im going to bed...I'll maybe update the blog later.
Here is some old footage of Tokyo and the Sexxwailes performing in CT a while back.
If you enjoyed this blog or any of the others...share them on FB...tweet them out...and if you didn't...well do it anyways cause it doesn't harm you in any way and may reduce cellulite and / or erectile dysfunction
So I've had this song stuck in my head since that damn blog update...apparently everyone is giving this song a go! so here is a Taylor Swift and Tom Cruises versions...
