Jamie Foxx Sings Tinder Profiles

Screen shot 2015-04-21 at 11.29.16 PM

For those that have Tinder, you’ll know that there are generous helpings of weird and crazy on offer… some profiles that could do with being more honest, and others that could do with being less honest. Jimmy Kimmel thought it’d be funny to get Jamie Foxx to sensually and romantically sing some of the profiles, and he was right… it’s hilarious.

Ex-Cops Smoking Weed

Screen shot 2015-04-21 at 10.46.55 PM

The team behind “Grandmas Smoking Weed for the First Time” is out with another hilarious weed themed video — this time with ex-police lighting up. I feel like we should vote on what new group they get to do weed next! I vote for: pastors do weed, nuns do weed, athletes do weed… what do you think?

Those mustaches though! Hahaha. Brilliant.

Anfield Virgin

I have been a Liverpool fan for pretty much as long as i can remember, i’m not going to go into any detail about my origin story, or how i came to be a Liverpool supporter… the “how” i became a fan is actually pretty irrelevant now, what is important is that i’ve been part of a pretty special family for more than 10 years now.

Being a Liverpool fan has meant that i’ve made friends with some pretty amazing people, and that no matter how i feel, i know i have a support system. We celebrate each other’s successes, and commiserate each other’s losses, all because we’re part of the same Liverpool family. I’ve found that over the years “You’ll Never Walk Alone” is more than just a motto, it has been proven to me time and time again.

I had always wanted to see my team play live, a dream i think all Barclays Premier League football fans share. When I knew i would be in the country during football season, i pretty much planned my entire holiday around getting to Anfield to see Liverpool play. New Years Eve in Edinburgh? The sights and sounds of London? Exploring the Yorkshire Dales? WHO CARES! All i wanted was a seat at Anfield and a scarf to hold up while singing “You’ll Never Walk Alone” at the top of my lungs.

Thanks to a particularly loving boyfriend, who worked tirelessly at getting us great tickets, i was able to check something pretty important off of my bucket list! Not only did i get to see Liverpool play, but i got to see them WIN! It was a pretty epic game that saw Liverpool beat Sunderland 3 – 0, with a brace scored by Suarez who beautifully set up Raheem Sterling for the final goal. The boys celebrated just a few meters in front of me, and i could even hear ol’ Stevie G shouting out and congratulating Sterling.

Sterling, Suarez and Stevie G celebrate!

It’s 90min that i won’t ever forget, as long as i live. There are literally no words to describe the emotions when the entire stadium bursts into “You’ll Never Walk Alone”… i would be lying if i said that i didn’t cry a little. Tears of happiness, obviously!

UberRELAX

uber_johannesbburg_uberRELAX_social_880x440_r1

Uber has partnered with Massage on the Move  to bring you massages straight to your very own office doorstep in Jozi and Pretoria today, Friday 17th April.

Each booking includes 6 massages for ONLY R200 (all inclusive)! A fleet of therapists will arrive and perform Indian Head and Shoulder Tension Release massages.

How it works:

Open the Uber app today, Friday 17 April 2015, between 10h00 and 16h00 and you will see a lotus icon > Toggle over to the lotus icon > Set your pickup location and tap the “UberRELAX” button to request your therapist! Simple.

Please note:
When a rider requests a massage on-demand, they are booking for six (6) massages at a cost of ONLY R200 (all inclusive) which will last about 45 minutes to an hour in total (15 minutes per massage). You may have less than 6 people but the set cost per booking will be R200. It’d probably also be a good idea to have a meeting room set aside, or an area where the therapists can do the treatments to enjoy your massages in peace and quiet!

Thor Rixon – Fuk Bread

It’s the music video that pretty much everyone is talking about right now, so i figured that it should probably find itself a permanent home on here too. Thor Rixon, who is wildly creative and ridiculously talented has got a brand new track and insane music video to go with it.

I’ve played a few of his previous singles on my show, and it’s always been a trip. If you want to hear some more of his stuff, check out his Soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/thorrixon

Just in case you were wondering, this is my exact brand of weird. Love it:

I can see Tim Noakes making this his get-out-of-bed-in-the-morning song! #FukBread

30,000 – Shelflife Help Me Thank You!

30,000!? I cannot believe that 30,000 people (give our take a few hundred bots) actually care about what I have to say. It’s madness.

I came to South Africa a few years ago with about 120 followers and literally zero reputation. Now, thanks a whole heap of tweets and a bit of graft I’ve managed to hit an amount that I never thought possible, and that, my friends, is all because of you lot. And I wanted to say thanks.

Spring Breakers Get The Best Wake Up Call

I wouldn’t mind having this wake-up call every single day! Not only is the “wake-up” call only at 11am, but it’s also to the tune of the Circle of Life from The Lion King.

Apparently this has become a bit of a tradition over the years, and Spring breakers staying at the Holiday Inn in Panama City, Florida, are woken up every morning by the Lion King theme blasting out from pool-side speakers. Everyone crawls out of bed and onto their balconies to enjoy the song… and once the track is finished – it means that another day full of sun, sand, parties and surf await them :) TOUGH FREAKING LIFE!
