This is what my Gtalk looked like yesterday afternoon.

Dry, bro-humour aside though - this is good news! For those who haven't heard, my good friend (as well as ex-housemate / guy crush / spooner) Lourens Corleone (known affectionately by the bros as 'Krans') is engaged! And who's the lucky lady? None other than uber-talented photographer / designer, Adele Kloppers! A power couple if there ever was one! Check them out:

Guys (Adele and Krans), I think I speak on behalf of all of us (the whole crew) when I say that the two of you deserve the best kind of happiness. And I'm glad you found it with each other. Why, it feels like just the other day that I witnessed (what I believe to be) your guys' first kiss, under the light of a waning laptop, whilst listening to Journey - Don't Stop Believing.

Congratulations! I love you both. Don't ever stop believing ;)

So Many Activities! [Videos]

My last few posts have been of the video variety so - in keeping with the spirit - I decided to do an entry with all of the little clips I have scattered across the web on various blogs and YouTube channels. CENTRALIZE, GO! Forgive their quality; they were all shot on a handheld Sanyo Xacti camcorder for web.

Dissing Your Pets: This video was shot off the cuff one night in my old place where I lived with Loki Corleone and Nick Kuiper (from the Akelian Circus). The cat featured is my old cat Holly Luna - whom I love dearly, but had to give away due to pet restrictions at my new place. I miss her. Now watch the video.

The Stilbaai Violence: This video was shot over a week long road trip up to Stilbaai over New Years 2009-2010. I intended it to play out like a music video, which I think I accomplished. Featured in this video: Dennis Krige, Bob Flinderflap, Juliette Starke, Phil Grizzly, Jessie Johnstone, Ian Eagleheart, Caitlin Jayne and myself. 

Infecting the City 2010: This is a little video I made while I was interning at Cape Music Industry Commission (Cape MIC). We were recruited to do guerrilla marketing in the Cape Town CBD for the Infecting the City Performing Arts Festival 2010. Featuring: Jeze Bel, Jono Mervis, Zandi Hoshe and Erik Smit. Also, we taped up a cop car, so you should check it out.

Getting Drunk for Science: This last one I'm most proud of. It's a little mockumentary documenting the drunken escapades of Krans, Roxy Bayman, Simon Gerber, Loki Swanepoel and I. Glaceau Vitamin Water approached the Stellenbosch-based lifestyle start-up, LifeAfter5, to film a webisode for Stellies students. They then got our production company, iamlovechild, to shoot this. Anyway, I'm not going to get into details, the video will speak for itself. Enjoy!

And that's all for this week. Hope ya'll enjoy your second Friday today ;)

Kristyn Rohm And I Get Our Mumford On

If you follow me on Twitter, you will have read about the mini-music video Kristyn and I shot on Monday 6th June, in Durbanville. The shoot was a lot of fun and I'm pretty damn happy with the result (even though this song has been YouTube covered to death). Big up to Etienne Janse Van Rensburg, the man behind the camera (and concept), as well as Killian Pond, the brains behind the set design and lighting. Check the video out below:

We will be working towards an original recording before the end of the month, followed closely by another video sometime next month. Until then, we could really use your help with name ideas. Leave suggestions in the comment section below the post. Peace!

Song of the Week: Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows - If You Think This Song Is About You

I seem to go through moods with music. So judging by this latest Song of the Week installment, my current mood must be a deadly mixture of anger, anxiety, insanity and cynicism... Which is slightly alarming, because according to my FingerScan iPhone app:

 Enjoy the song!

Thank you Bob Flinderflap, for introducing me to this band.
