My New Music Video (Hot Pink)

posted in: The Journey, The Music | 0

Late last year I started releasing my new single (Hot Pink). Instead of sending it to radio and being annoyed by responses like “we’re not quite sure what format it is” or whatevs… I decided to release it ‘face to face’. So I went around Cape Town and introsuced myself to people (mainly at offices) and played them my new song.

We had so much fun doing this. My friend (Linda) was at some of these ‘Hot Pink Serenades’ and he put together this music video. I was not joking when I said I am a D.I.Y artist :)

September Book 1 (The Whale Caller)

September Book 1 (The Whale Caller)

I think we should just call 2012 & 2013 my Zakes Mda years. I was going through my books, hoping that I would find my copy of Ways Of Dying. Sadly, some swine really did steal my book. Aaarrgh! But I did find a copy of The Whale Caller. Then Marcee suggested that perhaps I swapped books with someone and have forgotten about it.

The book is indeed about a whale caller, not to be confused with Hermanus whale crier. The Whale Crier alerts visitors when there are whales nearby. Never been to Hermanus but I understand that people go there for whale watching. The crier let’s them know where the whales are by blowing his horn. Don;t ask me how people know exactly where to go though.

Back to the book: The Whale Caller is about a love triangle. One with a twist; man, woman and whale. I want to tell you more but I feel like I would be doing the ‘annoying spoiler thing’. If you’re familiar with Zakes Mda’s writing then you already know that this is a magical book. He has a way of finding the magic in the mundane.

August Book 4 (Animal Farm)

August Book 4 (Animal Farm)

Let’s just ignore the fact that I disappeared for a month and focus on the fact that I read 4 books in August. I read Animal Farm at school & enjoyed it.

A friend of ours bought Marcee the book (a few weeks ago). When she was finished with it, I gave it a read. I’m so glad that I did because I felt like I understood it more. Most of this book actually had me gasping because it reminded me so much of what is happening in South Africa. I really don’t feel like going into it right now but I’m sure you can (easily) work it out.
