The annual Burning Man festival took place once again in the Nevada desert this year, attracting upwards of 70,000 people for the week-long party. Beware! This video includes a fair amount of public nudity… NSFW
The guy who made this video was invited by Sander van Doorn’s team to join them at Burning Man to capture the team’s experience in the best way possible. It was both Sander van Doorn’s and the videographer’s first time.

I’ve got to say that the whole “singing for your supper” approach to competitions in South Africa is getting pretty tired. It’s sad to have to see talented comedians/musicians beg for “votes” to be able to get opportunities to perform.
M-Net Movies Comedy channel has taken a bit of a different route to try and showcase some local comedy peoples during their stand-up comedy festival this month. Four up-and-coming comedians created pre-rolls for YouTube, promoting the stand-up comedy festival on channel 104. Quite simply put, the one with the longest view time will win R10 000.00 in cash!
Now this is a little different to the usual way these things are decided, they’re using YouTube analytics to determine which pre-roll was watched for the most amount of time. Multiple views from the same device won’t count. So essentially the quality of the clips have to speak for themselves.
Watch the four clips below and tell me who your favourite is!
ALSO – if you ever need something to cheer you up, remember to tune into M-Net Movies Comedy (channel 104) for loads of stand-up on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights from 9pm this month (September).
I got the full schedule, but i thought i’d pick my favourites to highlight:
13-Sep-2014 21:15 ONE-NIGHT STAND 45: COMMAND PERFORMANCE: ELLEN DEGENERES
20-Sep-2014 21:45 TRACY MORGAN: BLACK AND BLUE
26-Sep-2014 21:00 CHRIS ROCK: BIGGER & BLACKER
PS: You should feel bad if you missed Robin Williams’ “Weapons Of Self Destruction” last week! It’s immense.

He calls himself the ‘Angry Black Man’, and he is damn hilarious. Apparently he went through a breakup last year and has finally decided that it was high time to throw all of his ex’s shit away. However, because he is Angry Black Man, throwing it away isn’t enough – he decided to cover a drum in lighter fluid and set fire to it all. There are quite a few amazing one-liners in this video…
“You see what happens when you eat another bitch’s cheesecake?!”

These guys are just ridiculously talented beyond words. I have a lot of time for the dudes from PH Fat, and just as much time for my girly girl Jungfreud (you might know her as ‘Nonku’ from some sick Crazy White Boy tracks). Here is the music video for their latest single, and it is DAMN good.
As a people of earth, as the people of South Africa, as people of the UNIVERSE – this is the music we deserve.
Regardless of what you think about the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, this FAIL compilation is amazing! I am genuinely surprised at the amount of people that don’t know how to use a bucket, a good portion of them also don’t seem to understand gravity either. Enjoy these EPIC ALS Ice Bucket Challenge FAILS!

This dude just won $15.3 million in a poker tournament (the 2nd highest prize ever won in poker history) and looks like he was just told that he will have to have one of his testicles removed. The very definition of poker-face.
