Durban Beach Front 1997
Submitted by capdog on Wednesday, January 16, 2008 - 10:56

For nostalgia's sake, here's an old video I found on YouTube. It's footage from 1997 of North beach and a drive down to South, set rather appropriately to "Mr Jones" by the Counting Crows and "Zombie" by the Cranberries. Amazing that 1997 was over 10 years ago...

Durban Vibes
Submitted by capdog on Tuesday, January 15, 2008 - 16:06

Here's a new site called DurbanVibes.tv that offers image galleries and videos of Durban. It's not entirely clear why they do this, I imagine it's a type of online portfolio or tourism based site that will cater to visitors someday.

It's cleanly designed and has a bit of content on offer, with the promise of more to come.

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...

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.

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.

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!

Through An Outsider's Eyes
Submitted by capdog on Friday, August 10, 2007 - 09:43

When tourists come to this city, many of them fall in love. Occasionally they go on to write captivating, poetic diaries of how much they absolutely adore Durban. One such person, who calls herself nosundays, has written a spellbinding account of her time here. It's a piece so deeply moving that it deserves publication in every newspaper and magazine in this city, so that locals can see just how beautiful the city can be to our visitors.

"she [Durban] tried to take care of you but there are too many people to be taken care of, too many human beings are vulnerable in her heart, too many people spit on her face to show their disappointment and only a handful of people are willing to give her a chance to be free, untrammeled and still she tries, struggles to help anyone who lives under her sky. she is beautiful, let me assure you that. she is maybe the most exquisite and ravishing city where i have been but at the same time she is the most fragile and breakable city where i have ever been."

Durban Scouts Banner

We're making some changes around here, and this is the first draft of the new banner from the graphics department. So I'm going to hold off on saying what I like and dislike about it, instead let's hear it from you guys first. Is it a winner?

Graffiti Wankers
Submitted by capdog on Tuesday, July 24, 2007 - 16:45

Art rocks, murals rock, skate parks decorated with spray are pretty damn cool. Little losers who think their cocks grow every time they scribble their name on the side of a council bin, should be gang-raped in prison.

Take this particular group of wannabe-artists who are now posting their Durban vandalism on Flickr (link). They call themselves "fto" or "somz", or some other meaningless three-letter acronym crap. They are the ones who are making the city look like the inside of their heads - dirty, empty and ultimately seriously pathetic.

Taxi Of The Week: Raikkonen
Submitted by capdog on Monday, July 23, 2007 - 16:22

Or simply "Kimi" to his friends. From lap to lap he goes, full throttle, cutting through corners and tearing up the opposition; beating his personal best time and claiming yet another podium finish.

We caught up with Kimi this weekend and he was gracious enough to answer a few questions.
