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.
So anyone that has met me for oh lets say longer than 5 seconds knows that I'm not exactly the most organised person around...I am exactly the complete opposite...
Not that anyone actually noticed...but I've been away from everything for a while, even the blog... this is because... and I know this will come as a shock... I've actually been trying to get some sort of order in my little world of chaos... because I've also been working on a new venture, idea... and I cannot have it fail due to my own lack of focus...
so shut up brain...or I'll stab you with a Q-tip!
Are you addicted to urgency, thriving on the adrenaline.?
Take the quiz to find out,
LOS ANGELES (AP) — A decade after George Lucas said "Star Wars" was finished on the big screen, a new trilogy is destined for theaters as The Walt Disney Co. announced Tuesday that it was buying Lucasfilm Ltd. for $4.05 billion
The seventh movie, with a working title of "Episode 7," is set for release in 2015. Episodes 8 and 9 will follow. The new trilogy will carry the story of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Princess Leia beyond "Return of the Jedi," the third film released and the sixth in the saga. After that, Disney plans a new "Star Wars" movie every two or three years. Lucas will serve as creative consultant in the new movies.
Yoda is one of the favorite characters in the "Star Wars' saga, and that isn't likely to change now that he is also a Disney character.The Associated Press
"For the past 35 years, one of my greatest pleasures has been to see Star Wars passed from one generation to the next," said Lucas, chairman and CEO of Lucasfilm Ltd. "It's now time for me to pass Star Wars on to a new generation of filmmakers. I've always believed that Star Wars could live beyond me, and I thought it was important to set up the transition during my lifetime."
Disney CEO Bob Iger said Lucusfilm had already developed an extensive story line on the next trilogy, and Episode 7 was in early-stage development.

In your day-to-day vernacular, you probably use a lot of non-dictionary words. I, for one, have a habit of abbreviating things to the nth degree when I speak, to the point where “whatever” becomes “whatev,” “totally” becomes “totes”, “vacation” becomes “vacay”, “details” becomes “detes” and… you get the point. Sadly, I also use some words that are blatantly fabricated, like “criticality” when I mean “criticism”. Worse of all, I have an annoying habit of using the word “funner” when I ought to simply say, “more fun”.
However, as peppered as my speech patterns are with non-standard English, I try not to bring my own personal language into the sphere of academic writing. I couldn’t imagine what would go through an English teacher’s mind if I turned in a paper that said, “Yo, Herman Melville’s gynormous book about Moby Dick was super phat, cuz Ishmael will be one of my fave, most coolest protagonist forevs LOL.” Like, automatic F, right?
To help you write better, I compiled a list of 5 words you should avoid in all your papers. I understand the importance if irony, but the irony of using grammar and spelling like “Dey’s awluz at it, sah, en dey do mos’ kill me, dey skyers me so,” even in a paper aboutThe Adventure of Huckleberry Finn (which that quote is directly lifted from) would completely be lost on your professor. So, without further ado:
Darkness falls across the land,
The midnight hour is close at hand,
Creatures crawl in search of blood,
To terrorize y'alls neighborhood...
Halloween is nearly upon us... unfortunately since its on a stupid weekday this year... the celebrations happened a little bit earlier. Halloween unfortunately still hasn't become the dress up over the top insanity in South Africa as it is in the USA...which is a pity...
However, my friends don't need an excuse to dress up at the best of times... and this year they went balls to wall crazy...
Here are some of the pics from that night...
If anyone else had a big Halloween party send me your pics and I'll upload them
Clearly Im underpaid....
These are some amazing outfits...
My Fav.... Gotta be the Disney Girls....or The Turtles....
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...
Im not sure why but I find this soooo amusing....maybe cause I love penguins...and Michael Jackson was the last of the true legends.
its not even well done....but who cant help but smile when they see a penguin dancing.
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
The Live Feed of the Redbull Stratos Mission...Go Felix...
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...
As we leave for the dessert safari...or desert safari... Ok my spelling is terrible, I'm going to blame mild to severe heat stroke for this one...If you haven't come here before let me just warn you its hotter than a whore's handbag...no wonder this side of the world is so grumpy...
My idea of being outdoorsy is having cocktails outside...or possibly passing out in a gutter... so I don't really know what the difference between the two would be... guess on one you have to hunt sand or camels or something like that... and the other you get to hunt pastries and other sneaky sugary treats...
So half an hour into our bus ride and still not a pastry in sight... Starting to suspect that this is going to be filled with camels, dunes, and sand. Which I will no doubt be finding in uncomfortable places for weeks.
Damn...it turns out we doing the sand one, which I'm sure its going to be awesome... But I was kind of looking forward to shooting me a 200kg jelly doughnut....
As a result of Tali's previously mentioned motion sickness I've been having a lovely chat with her ear... its a rather nice ear...bit on the quiet side...Good thing we're not going dune bashing or anything like that...and Im sure these are special camels that wont bob up and down as they move.
Desert Safari's seem to be a popular activity in the UAE judging by how many company's offer nearly identical tours. Not that Ive mentioned it...am I the only one that has trouble remembering that its the UAE and not Dubai... not sure why I upgraded the city into a country, but I doubt anyone noticed... so anyways...We're going on the package that doesnt have the belly dancers as its not actually traditional in this part of the world...or at least that's the story Im being told, secretly I just think they're hiding the sugar covered girls somewhere at the back till Ive been walked off far into the the sandpit...
Then Def Leppard is going to jump out from under their Burkas and bring out the chocolat covered girls and play Pout Some Sugar on Me in some kind of strange highly offensive slow motion montage.
So once we finally got off the little tiny bus... we free to hang around, mingle, and have a cup of Arabic Coffee...Gotta admit it does conjur up images of Aladdin and Laurence of Arabia...except the baboon / ape / monkey in the cage...that is just wrong...turns out half our group is South African...I have yet to find the chocolate covered dancers...but I know they're here somewhere.
Originally there were two camels taking people for rides...well when I say ride imagine when you were 6 and they took you for a ride on the pony...slow...and being led by a strange smelly man...except...the pony is also smelly...and a camel... and full of shit...The one just decided its having none of this and wouldnt get up, so one lonely man and his camel donkey had to do the job.
But none of that matters, cause lets face it. Boys come to these things for 1 reason only!
Hell yeah! Its alot of fun and these guys are pretty good drivers. Tali made some interesting squeels next to me. But evem she was enjoying it!
After getting back to the camp we had some dinner, dressed up in terrible touristy outfits, someone came and drew on Tali and finally sat down for a cup of Arabic tea...which is actually just really sweet liptons the sneaky bastards...over all a great experience, not sure if the kid who asked his mom (and this is 100% true) if there is WIFI out there...
