Teenage Mutant Ninja Bluff Residents
Submitted by capdog on Friday, December 7, 2007 - 04:49

Sitting on the grassy banks of Anstey's beach is a large red container with this sign clearly visible on the side.

"DANGER: Radioactive material. Do not remain in or near this area unnecessarily."

Just another reason not to hang around after your surf...

Zuma Is Coming, Like It Or Not
Submitted by capdog on Tuesday, November 27, 2007 - 06:55

So as you've probably heard by now, Zuma is leaps and bounds ahead of his competition in the presidency race, with the Women's League now also giving him their backing.

With so many people promising to leave South Africa if he ever gets the top job (seriously?!), I thought I'd jot down a few notes to fuel the debate, from the classic Spiegel interview to more moderate and rational analysis of his character. Will Zuma turn SA into Zimbabwe? Is it even possible against the backdrop of the new wealthy ANC businessmen?

Here are two awesome surfing videos from YouTube, one a general collection of Durban beach shots, and the other tow-in surfing from the big swell in March. Why can't we get more of these waves?! Enjoy.

White Mountain 2007 Review
Submitted by capdog on Monday, October 1, 2007 - 08:11

We're back from the second White Mountain festival which was a roaring success in every meaningful way: great music, chilled out vibes, warm fires, good facilities and bucketfuls of beer.

As promised, it was unlike the carnage of Splashy, instead more of a grown-up affair that never threatened to get out of control.

Great Balls Of Fire
Submitted by hedmekanik on Wednesday, September 19, 2007 - 09:22

Reports of a humongous fireball engulfing Durban’s Bluff area last night have set the city alight with conspiracy stories, gossip and rumour. It seems that for each citizen there is a different theory, each more bizarre than the last. And no, it wasn’t the Ethiopian Zion Coptic Church’s annual Bongfest. That was last Tuesday.

Carguards Not So Innocent
Submitted by capdog on Tuesday, September 11, 2007 - 06:16

Down at the beachfront on Saturday afternoon, and my brother locks his keys in his car. A major inconvenience? Cause for swearing and a hefty locksmith bill? Not at all. This is Africa, after all, and there was no reason to worry or even make a single phonecall.

My bro casually sauntered up to the carguard, and explained the situation in less than a sentence. With a broad grin and a skip in his step, the carguard darted behind a tree and fetched his jimmy.

One minute later the door was open. We thanked and tipped the grateful man, and moved on.

Metrobeat - It's A Slippery Slope
Submitted by capdog on Monday, September 10, 2007 - 12:38

The new logo... not winning any awards.The new logo... not winning any awards.One might argue that being petty over spelling and grammar is uncalled for, as most of us make mistakes from time to time. So why should Vasantha Angamuthu be treated any differently?

Well, Vasantha is the new editor of the city's most widely-read and arguably important magazine, Metrobeat. She's burst onto the scene by producing an incredibly sloppy column that appears on the inside sleeve of September's issue, the first edition with her in the editor's chair.

As far as "first impressions" go, this is a disaster.

Ain't Much Rock 'n Roll...
Submitted by hedmekanik on Saturday, September 8, 2007 - 13:09

They slouch, they pose like they’re in the Libertines, and they effect a nonchalance which projects an air of ‘I’ve just had a hit of brown in the toilets and you lot are about as interesting as watching the lawn grow’. And they all – every last motherfuckin’ one of ‘em (thanks for that, Quentin) - wear that ubiquitous indicator of pseudo-übercool, the skinny jean pant.

They are the new generation of indie music wannabes and by god, but my grandmother would give them a run for their money. With a cooler-than-thou attitude and a carefully cultivated air of importance, they’re the result of a good clean upbringing and the desperate need to project a bit of cred. The only thing is, they’re about as authentic as the twenty-buck Oakleys I bought off that Congolese carguard at North Beach last week. Ladies and gents, I give you... drumroll... the Indie Winkie Brigade!

Guest Lists Pull Crowds
Submitted by capdog on Thursday, September 6, 2007 - 10:06

"I dunno... I'm a bit tired..." I sighed feebly down the phone. On the other side my friend was convincing me to attend the Levi's gig at Blue Waters hotel.

"You're on the list, you have to come!" he protested, suggesting that somehow being important enough to make a guest list would be sufficient to persuade me to go.

Turns out, it was. I'm shallow like that. But it also turns out that the "guest list" at the door was divided into thick volumes, quite like a telephone directory, and that the only people paying the R20 entrance fee were a few plebby tourists who wandered down from their rooms to investigate why the pictures were falling off their bedroom walls.

As I reflected on the fantastic turn-out, I realised that there was some critically important psychology behind the "guest list", something that all would-be promoters should take note of.

Koffiebrown
Submitted by capdog on Thursday, August 30, 2007 - 14:15

Taxi owner: I want a taxi that really reflects who I am, you know, something that makes a profound comment on my character, my being. A logo that tells people 'I mean business'.

Graphics designer: Well, you're a sexy coloured guy, how about:

"Koffiebrown... I did'nt mean to turn u on"?

Taxi owner: Perfect! Begin work at once!
