Boyfriend tattoos huge shit on ex girlfriends back

Early Onset – Tattoo artist Ryan Fitzgerald from Dayton, OH was hit with a $100,000 lawsuit last week by his ex-girlfriend Rossie Brovent. She claims that her boyfriend was supposed to tattoo a scene from Narnia on her back but instead tattooed an image of a pile of excrement with flies buzzing around it. Apparently, Ryan found out that Rossie had cheated with a long-time friend of his, but instead of confronting her about it he acted like everything was normal and hatched a plan for revenge. Originally, Rossie tried to have Ryan charged with assault, but the ingenious tattoo artist had covered his bases by plying Rossie with wine and tequila shots and getting her to sign a consent form that stated the design was “at the artist’s discretion.” No word from Rossie on whether the illicit night of passion with Ryan’s friend was worth it. Moral of the story? Never cheat on a tattoo artist.

Hahahahaha, a back turd, siff!

Lil Wayne confirms world tour with Eminem

Most of us know that Wayne, is due to perform in South Africa, with Rick Ross on the 9th and 10th of December. There was the whole debalce about the dates clashing with Drakes Castle lite performance, then an extra day was added, and so was Rick Ross' name. Now another surprise has just popped up.

Man this concert is lining up to be something epic, Ross, Eminem, Wayne, and mayvbe a little Drake thrown in for good measure. It's christmas bitches!!

Amy Winehouse - Me and Mr. Jones [Video]

High5Collective have been keeping themselves busy as of late. Most recently, the LA-based team put together an R-rated video for Amy Winehouse’s Me & Mr. Jones, starring pornstar, Faye Reagan.Who says Porn can't be art?

Hot Chicks of Occupy Wall street [Video]

For those not in the know, Occupy Wall Street is a people-powered movement that began on September 17, 2011 in Liberty Square in Manhattan’s Financial District, and has spread to over 100 cities in the United States and actions in over 1,500 cities globally.

So powerful was the movement that we had our own OWS, only Julius changed the name, made it look like his brainchild, and his had a lot less staying power. Anyway, you can imagine the sort of person that would camp out on the street for days on end with no end in sight. That's right Hippies. Someone has done us the favour of sifting through al the hippies and unearthing the hotties.

America grew weary of all the dirty hippy unemployed  types that were now speaeheading the movement, and has nowe turned on them. Conan, sent Triumph the insult comic dog on location and some funny shit ensues. Just straight pissing on the cause...


Super Racer

Headlining Super's winter releases is the Racer ($200) (do your own conversion), a classically handsome frame that you can wear with a pair 501s or a three piece Thom Browne suit. The frame will launch in three colors: Black, Transparent Caramel, and Havana Tortoise. Link

Ijust dig the look of these, not quuiote sure where to get a pair this side of the world, but if I were to proffer a guess. I reckon you try Eyetique in Melrose Arch. This Summer is to hot to be caught out there.


The Weekend - The knowing [Official Video]

A lot of us weren't aware of his sound prior to his features on Drakes "Take Care" album, but the Toronto native has our ears, and he's struck while the iron is hot. With a sound that more closely resembles The Dream, and visuals of the Ferank Ocean variety, it's gonna be interesting to see how things pan out for The Weekend.


Ex Men's Shirt [Video]

Haha, ladies this post is for you. It's basically an instructional video on how you ladies can take your old boyfriends dress shirt and turn that shit into a dress. I laugh because I find the timing of this thing to be perfect.
It's December, and as we all know it's the season for summer flings, so a lot of you are gonna be getting dumped this festive, in order to make way for a new Summer Bunny.

Now you need not fret, cause instead of giving back his favourite shirt, you can take liberties with that thing and wear it as your own. A little revenge for dropping you like a Christmas Poo.

P.S this only works if you're hot!


Mandla Mandela: Sexaul age of consent a Western notion

Three prominent gender rights organisations met with Mandla Mandela yesterday. This, after he made statements regarding South Africa’s sexual age of consent last year, saying that when it comes to culture, the sexual age of consent is a “white, Western notion.” He was specifically referring to the ukuthwala practice, where girls as young as 14-years-old are abducted and forcefully married to older men.

Here’s the full version of what he said:
The process of Ukuthwala had nothing to do with age and depended on whether the girl underwent the intonjane initiation, as arranged by her family. That is how culture works. When you are going to discuss culture do not even try to bring in white notions as such an approach will turn things upside down. Firstly, culture has no age. Age is something we learnt today because of our westernisation.
the Tshwaranang Legal Advocacy Centre, the Commission for Gender Equality and the Rural Women’s Movement. They asked him to acknowledge section 3(1) of the Recognition of Customary Marriages Act which states that all prospective spouses must be over the age of 18 to enter into a customary marriage. He was also asked to publicly condemn the abduction, kidnapping, assault and rape that currently accompany ukuthwala.

When put in context like that, the argument is more pro "kuthwala," than it is pro stautory rape. Dude has to realise though that as strongly as he wants to protect the culture, there's a vulture waiting to exploit a loophole in the law. It's there to protect children.

Like Mandla I'm surprised at how quickly these young things grow, but that don't make it right. Mandla is definately one of those guys that should look at this former Disney childstar hottie list

Maybe Mandla is like a coach that recognioses talent in it's raw form, you know, like how some guys have faith in a new sportsmen, and tell you to give him time.Mandla is that guy. Only he's watching Yo-Tv, picking the wheat from the chaff. Before you asy I'm writing some slanderous shit, please have a look at the mans track

The Roots - Sleep [Video]

Legendary hip-hop group The Roots continues their onslaught of video releases to promote their forthcoming album undun. The latest highlights the Aaron Livingston-featured track “Sleep.” With the project’s drop date nearing – as it will be available on December 6 – expect no signs of letting up now


How Rick Ross got Wale's album to number 1 on the Billboard [Video]

Keep in mind these are just debates and opinions, don't go around spewing these opinions like they're the gospel truth(which in itself has multiple angles for interpetation).

Wale saw a huge increase in album sales after signing with Rick Ross’ Maybach Music Group. On Interscope Wale’s first album Attention Deficit sold 30k in its first week, fast forward 2 years and his Ambition album sells 164k first week and charts at Number 1 [Ed. note: No. 1 on the Hip-Hop R&B Charts in its first week]. Can this success be attributed to his affiliation with Rick Ross? The Friday Hip Hop Report crew discuss.

People get caught up in this Billboard ranking thing, and while it is a fun fact to know, people tend to forget that an album especially HipHop albums take ahuge dip in sales after week 1. I'd rather sell a consist
amount over a long period of time than fizzle right the fuck off.

Ludacris - BaDa Boom [Video]

The track that had the internet buzzing about, the so called "hashtag flow." Now gets a video, Luda made his point, but the indifference it was met with from both Drake and Big Sean, kind of fizzled the whole thing out rather quickly.

Trailers from Ghana [Video]

Now for something a little closer to home. The blog has been accused of being too distant from local things, snubbing all things African. Now, while I might appreciate a well made German cabriolet, and display a particular penchant for technical merino cardigans, and bespoke suits, I just want you to know that I know what's goin on at home. From Black Tuesday, to Black Wednesday. I'm with it.

We just report on shit we find interesting, and this isn't some educational blog, plenty of that elsewhere.
Any way stumbled on the Ghanain gems for the latest blockbuster releases. I'm goin to hold my tongue on these clips. Cause I'm just dumbstruck..


2012 Porsche 911 Cabriolet [Video]

Luxury automobile manufacture Porsche is set to debut its latest creation, the 911 Cabriolet. The drop-top coupe is unique in the sense that it welcomes a new innovative roof design, which among other things maximizes fuel efficiency while still paying tribute to the accustomed characteristics adorned by Porsche aficionados. The car highlights either a 3.5 liter 350 hp option or a heftier 3.8 liter 400 hp engine.

It's no secret that we are fans of the finer things in life, but this car goes beyond that, just steadily tweaked over the decades, each outing getting more refined, improving on perfection, to the point where we get to this junction. This car looks awesome and it's my lifes mission to own one.


Kendrick Lamar ft. Busta Rhymes - Rigamortis (remix) [Audio]

Yesterday I posted a video where Kendrick brought Busta Rhymes out at a show to introduce a the remix to one of the years standout tracks, off of Kendrick's critically acclaimed "Section .80." Today, I post the full audio from the snippet we got yesterday.


Drake Interview on Chelsea Lately [Video]

To further promote his sophomore album "Take Care," Drake dropped in on Chelsea's show to talk about meeting Lil Wayne, his relationship with Nicki Minaj and more.Having seen Chelsea interview rappers in the past, I'm expecting a pretty entertaining interview.

The number s are in this week though and Drakes sophomore album has sold 659 190 units in its first week. Making it the 2nd highest debut for an HipHop album this year, after Lil Waynes Carter 4. For those of you that like to crunch numbers Drakes first album " Thank me Later," moved 447 000 units in his first week.

Kendrick Lamar debuts Rigamortis remix onstage with Busta Rhymes [Video]

This is a track that showcases Kendricks technical rap abilities, his increased cadence, breathe control and projection over a verse. The quckfire staccato flow is something that seems to be making it's way back to the fore.

Busta, Em, Kendrick, Cory & Tech 9, seem to be the guys who do it well. Kendrick enlists Bustsa to help him out on the remix to "Rigamortis." Can't wait to hear the official audio of this remix.

How humble is Busta? A legend in the game!!

2012 Porsche Panamera GTS [Video]

The once divisive Porsche sedan, that I happen to love, gets the GTS treatment, the GTS is differentiated by a modified 4.8-liter V8 tuned to develop 430 horsepower at 6,700 rpm (that's a 30 horsepower bump over the standard 4S model) and 384 pound-feet of torque. I could live with that, only problem is I might forget I'm shuttling around three other passengers.

Ludacris responds to Big Sean and Drake [Audio]

Yesterday, Luda dropped his 1.21 Gigawatts mixtape and shortly after the internets got to talking about tracks 5 and 6. Months after Drake and Big Sean both called Luda out for using the “supa dupa flow” in a less-than-stellar way on My Chick Bad. Luda sure as hell likes to bide his time, but like the last album where he felt under rated, he comes strong on these two cuts.

Up first is the History Lesson Interlude in which Luda runs through snippets from Cam’ron (2003), Method Man (1998), Biggie (1997) and Q-Tip (1991) all using the flow over the years.

Then it's "Bada Boom," which is where the attack begins…

You don't want it with an angry Luda, he will Beast on you.


Busta Rhymes signs with Young Money and drops new single

Busta seems to be the nomad of Record labels, just making his way across some of the biggest labels, dropping an album then moving on to the next one. Well he's just landed at Young Money, and simultaneously drops a new track wick with Chris Brown entitled, "Why stop Now." Can it still be called "Young Money, " with Buss a Buss on the team?

With the help of Google Music and YouTube — you may have that opportunity if you can handle the test. Busta just released his new single with Chris Brown. And all you’ve gotta do is learn the first verse, spit it on camera, upload it here and get chosen by Busta himself.

Handmade Portraits: The Sword maker [Video]

Far back as I can remember, my appreciation for handmade items, began, when I watched a documentary, about making japanese swords. It revealed to me the process it took to make them correctly.

As one of Japan’s last remaining swordsmiths, Korehira Watanabe has honed his craft for 40 years while attempting to recreate the mythical Koto sword. While in college, Watanabe became inspired by another famous sword craftsman, Akihira Miyairi, who would then go on to become his master. It’s only in the last five years that Watanabe was finally be able to create something similar to the Koto, an instrument of destruction lauded for it’s abilities during the Heian and Kamakura Periods. In this beautiful short film, watch and learn about the dedication and patience that is needed to craft such a rudimentary, yet tough to master tool.


Bride whips out phone during wedding [Video]

Anyone who knows me, knows I hate mobile phones, they're an invitation to others to intrude. Not sayin I don't see the good sideto them, but always being connected is shit. Lot's of you are out on the streets, but are never realy experiencing the streets, instead you're broadcasting the experience so some follower can live vicariously through you.

My issues aside, this is totally unacceptable, for her looks alone she wouldn't win bride of the year, and now he has to tolerate her obvious disinterest. I would have just let go of her and taken the honeymoon for 1.


Hooters Kiss [Video]

I've been known to frequent Hooters on several occasions. I usually rely on charm to eke out a number from the girls, never thought of just using tricks, but then again I can't down a draft in 2 seconds.

Much as Drake claims he's okay with the leak of his album. I seem to think that inside he's hurting, unable to trust those in his inner circle that had acces to the final mastered product. Oh well. those are rich people problems, and I aint one of them. Here is some footage from Vevo.

Die Antwoord - Fok Julle Naaiers [Video][UPDATE]

Love them or hate them, you can't deny that Die Antwoord are a global force. International journo's are hungry for more content from these guys, and often have athe scoop on us.  I see their shit on other blogs long before I see it on any national blog. That takes some doing.

The Afrikaans Zef rap group recently parted ways with Interscope Records,
According to the group, Interscope wanted them to re-work “Fok Julle Naaiers” for a more “mainstream appeal”, and Die Antwoord, unsurprisingly, were not amused, responding:

So anyway… Interscope offered us a bunch of money again to release our new album TEN$ION. But this time, they also tried to get involved with our music, to try and make us sound like everyone else out there at the moment… So we said: ‘U know what, rather hang on to your money, buy yourself something nice…we gonna do our own thing. Bye bye’.
I would kill whole villages of women and children, to say I'm a labelmate with Eminem, Dr. Dre & 50 Cent. These guys just told them where to get off. Now while I might not buy an Antwoord album, their visuals are always interesting enough to keep me watching. No different with the aptly named "Fok Julle Naaiers" "Hosh Phakamisa!" Shit is just homegrown, plus the rhymes are getting tighter.
Found this extra bit of footage where "Ninja," or Waddy as some remember him, tells us what went down at interscope. "Fuckin fell down laughing at 2 min mark, Simunye."


Givenchy Watch The Throne T-Shirts

We now get a detailed look at the designer t-shirt they have been donning on stage.

The tees not only feature unique designs from Tisci, which highlight the project, but also welcome each artist’s initials on the sleeve.

Dating Site in crap for anti fat people, advert

America, is a wonderful country indeed, no other country has as much liberties, oppurtunities, and wealth as the the United States. It's something they pride themselves on, and rightly so. You're at the top of the food chain, revel in that achievement, but sometimes the American public will go in hard on their own when they feel you're in the wrong, as in this case.

Ashley Madison, a "married dating service for discreet encounters" (yes, such a thing exists), just released the second of two ads that mock a plus-size model for her look.  You read that right ladies and gentlemen, a website that encourages you to have an extra-marrital affair is causing a stir because they're against fat people.

The dating site, which seeks to connect married or "attached" individuals for affairs, released an ad last week stating, "Did your wife SCARE you last night?" with a photo of an overweight woman lounging sexily in lingerie.

Am I the only one who feels that the biggest problem is that there is a site that encourages people, to step outside of marriage? And you're worried because someone who eats too much is not looked at as the archetypal beauty.

 Hahahaha, I'm packing my bags for the States first thing, marrying an American woman for a green card, then I'm gonna cheat as much as I like, as long as I'm passing the dick around non- discriminantly. Win - Win!


Welsh Rugby Player has stroke then wakes up Gay

New life: Chris now works as a hairdresser and lives above the shop with his boyfriend
A rugby player suffered a stroke while training – and discovered when he woke up that he was gay. Chris Birch, 26, had proposed to his girlfriend and worked in a bank when he suffered a freak accident in the gym. The rugby-loving Welshman was trying to impress his friends with a back flip but broke his neck and suffered a stroke. He was taken to the Royal Gwent hospital where his girlfriend and family waited for news – but said: ‘I was gay when I woke up and I still am.’ His friends were stunned by the dramatic changes to his personality, especially his change in sexuality. Chris said: ‘It sounds strange but when I came round I immediately felt different. ‘I wasn’t interested in women any more. I was definitely gay. ‘I had never been attracted to a man before – I’d never even had any gay friends. But I didn’t care about who I was before, I had to be true to my feelings.’ Before the accident Chris was planning on settling down with his girlfriend, although they were having a break from each other at the time of his accident. But after the stroke he found he was no longer interested in sport and had little in common with his old friends. He quit his job to become a hairdresser and started dating a man he met at a club night

Chris before: heavier and worked at a bank

I call Bullshit! Dude just needed an out, and this however unlkely was his best exit strategy. Fucking Welsh. How are you ever expecting to win a Rugby Worlsd Cup when your union is full of ths sort of shit?


CyHi da Prynce - Cold as Ice [Video]

The problem with todays musical climate, is that people have far too much variety. You bump an album for a week then move on to the next one. Without ever giving an album a full chance to marinade. On the flipside some might argue that if it doesn't grab you in that first week, then it wasn't a strong enough effort. Can't argue with that logic, but hearing this track reminded me of all the tracks I enjoyed on Royal Flush 2. Infact I'm goin to blast "Thousan Poundz" off this mixtape.


Megaphone for iPhone [Video]

There's a reason I love the iPhone above all other phones. It's simplicity of design seems to inspire others to new creative plateau's, wether it's designing an app, or the vast array of accesories to fit the phone. No other phone comes close to offering some of the elegant shit, you can add to your phone. Iguess it's cause all other companies, drain themselves creating the phone, and have the added burden of designing the accesories, which more often than not clearly look like an afterthought.

MegaPhone by Ene&is. A pretty piece.
"Passive Amplifier for iphone made of ceramic. the form is designed to amplify and optimize the best sound output. the amplifier is based on a thin wooden frame that allows the object to float off the table. this in order to increase the vibration of the object and to optimize the emission of sound. designed for the iPhone is perfect for listening music without headphones, for audio conference to hear the person on the phone as live voice."

Safe House [Trailer]

I've got a friend down in Cape Town, who'd told me quite a while back that Cape Town had come to a standstll because Dnzel and Ryan Reynolds were shooting, ooutside his office block. At that time I just shelved it away under "more reasons to hate Cape Town," and forgot about it. Now the trailer just made itself known to me, and like any South African I'm always keen to see how these hollywood types portray us.

Safe House, starring Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds, revolves around a CIA-operated safe house that gets compromised. From there, the facilities house-sitter must relocate the criminal they’re watching to a safer location. It wouldn’t be the start of a new year without a Denzel-assisted thriller to look forward to. I see Watch the Throne wasted no time in making its cultural impact, "No Church in the Wild," fits so well with trailer. Pretty trippy seeing Denzel in the uniform Bheki Cele, had just begun to make his own.


Young Jeezy ft. T.I - F.A.M.E (Fake Ass Motherfuckers Envy) [Audio]

The thing with Hip Hop beef is that it's polarizing. Hip Hop fans will always side with their favourite rapper in the case of beef, and dismiss the other as wack. When in actual fact the beef shouldn't be that divisive. You as a fan of music should be able to sit back and say, that's a good track regardless of the artists gripe.

With Jeezy and Ross, you had two artists who ran the streets, champions of the peoples cause, guys who had the street anthems. They even worked together and had worked some collaborative magic. Somehow the machine broke and the two no longer vibe like they used to.

Abscence on Jeezy's part has seen the Ross' star rise to new heights, and caused many to prematurely declare Jeezy's career over. Sure the man has had some label issues, a point Ross, relishes saying "they're on the same label, yet nothing he puts out ever gets pushed back."

Whatever the deal was there, Jeezy's machine is on full blast, in preparation for a December 20th release of his Thug Notivation 103:Hustlerz Ambition Album.

Having had a private listening session last week, critics came away with only good things to say, hailing this as the Quarter for the Snowman. Rick is also slated to drop his album soon, I'm not gonna take sides, I like both these guys, Ricks impeccable ear for good beats, and Jeezy's lack of pretense and his street appeal.

This track, enlists the JUSTICE League on production(Responsible for a lot of Rozays hits), and T.I goes in over a verse. The passion burns crazy on this cut.

See the tracklist for TM103 Below:

UCT student stable after 5-storey fall

Varisty see's a lot of strange shit happen, when I was in varisty a mate of mine happned to be gliding to the girls residence and fell off the rails and fell 2 floors down, very sad story indeed...wrong! A 20-year-old University of Cape Town student was in a critical, but stable condition on Monday after falling five storeys from a campus residence. More after the jump:

Mos Def & Talib Kweli to Reunite in 2012 for New Black Star Album

For those of y'all who grew up listening to some proper Hip Hop, you'll be happy to know that Mos & Kwa are going to be at it again, the fellas are feigning dropping another Black Star album and I'm pretty sure its going to be up to scratch, I was rather disappointed with the follow up to Reflection Eternal which left a lot to be desired, so this better be hot!

Hannibal Buress on David Letterman [Video]

Mr. Buress is one of the fastest rising comics working today. No less of an authority than Chris Rock has singled him out as someone to watch. He has written for “Saturday Night Live” and “30 Rock,” and recently signed a deal with Fox to develop a television show with Jonah Hill. I threw in a little extra footage from his appearance on Jimmy Kimmel after the jump...

Floyd Mayweather gets owned on a radio interview [Audio]

Charlie Sheen, would distance himself from this shit, because this is not winning. First of all he calls in to this radio station, at the behest of 50 Cent. So he can set this Rude Jude guy straight. I think Floyd forgot that this is one of those satelite radio stations, they don't play curteous like your regulated stations. Jude gives harder than Floyd can dish out.

When the question is put to him Floyd has no reason to be ducking this  Pacquiao fight, just as much as he has no reason to be terrorising a small radio station. Well done to Rude Jude for holding his own. Mayweather needs to man up!


Drake ft. The Weekend - Crew Love [Audio]

Slated as the fourth track off Drake's sophomore album Take Care. The tune finds the OVO general teaming up with fellow Torontonian The Weeknd and is expected to be one quarter of Abel Tesfaye's contribution to the album. Drizzy tells Toronto’s Flow 93.5:

“I automatically thought of the city that I miss so much. This record is just more about the OVOXO movement and just being proud to be from Toronto. When you go outside the city, just be proud.”

Take Care arrives on November 15 and will feature the likes of Rihanna, Stevie Wonder, Nicki Minaj, André 3000, Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, Kendrick Lamar, and Chantal Kreviazuk.

MF Doom Lecture at the Red Bull Academy [Video]

Red Bull Music Academy stop in Madrid was on point, Hip hop’s last enigma sits down on the Academy couch to break down the message behind the mask, rap beef behind his different personas and why good things come to those who wait.

This might be way too gully for most of you on a Sunday, but they realyy go through all the shit that I ask myself about some of my favourite artists. As an aside though, "white people be consuming this culture called Hip Hop, while we're caught up on radio friendly raps."


Gilt Man, Suitably dressed [Video]

A little visual ‘How to ‘ instruction from Gilt Man via the most photographed man in the streetstyle kingdom, Mr Nick Wooster. He offers up straightforward advice for every occasion, well, weddings, interviews, dates and, erm, the weekend. If you like your style of an instructional nature press play. Some of you are walking around and making GQ'S best dressed list, others I'm afraid to say are just looking like staright trash. Head some of this advise and help make the landscape something to behold.


Made by Hand the Knife Maker [Video]

We meet writer turned knife maker Joel Bukiewicz of Cut Brooklyn. He talks about the human element of craft, and the potential for a skill to mature into an art. And in sharing his story, he alights on the real meaning of handmade—a movement whose riches are measured in people, not cash.

There's nothing more sloppy than a kitchen without a good set of knives, invest good people.

21 Jump Street Movie [Trailer]

I don't remember the original t.v series being so comedic, but I think I like the direction they're taking. Revisiting Johnny Depp’s ‘80s TV series, “21 Jump Street”, Jonah Hill and Channing Tattum star as two cops who go undercover as high school students to infiltrate and expose a drug ring. Directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the remake takes on a flighty comedic appeal and also features a guest cameo by Johnny Depp. Ice Cube is killing it as the angry unit manager too. Must say I think i will watch this.

Rhino vs. Warthog [Video]

I like to be a responsible blogger, so every now and then I'll drop a cautionary video to help you stay out of trouble , because I'm kind like that. It's the weekend after payday weekend for quite a few of you, and you might feel all sorts of invincible with that extra dosh in your pocket. So good in fact, that you'll probably go out get a bit shitfaced and try to hit on as many girls as you can tonight.

Remember my good friends, not every girl is yours, and sometimes you can't eat at the same table as the bigger animals. I'll let the video above illustrate what could potentially happen if you decide to eat at another mans plate, I hope it resonates with you well. This is Afica, don't care how charming and well loved Pumba is.

Vans Vault Chukka Bardenas LX

Minimalism has always been a notable characteristic of Vans, and is exemplified by the Chukka Bardenas LX from the brand’s Vault collection. The model trades out its normally suede upper for a more premium leather dressing, making it both a luxurious yet versatile shoe. Available in black and coffee, the Chukka Bardnenas LX can be purchased at Hot Rod.It pains me that these are never available anywhere in South Africa, internet it will have to be.


Amber Rose responds to Kanye West Concert Mention [Video]

If you follow the blog you'd have seen that last night Kanye West gave a shout out to Amber Rose, at his Philadelphia leg of the Watch The Throne Tour. Basically thanking Philadelphia for making the incredible person that  the track "Runaway," was made for. Amber Rose was promptly hit up by a lot of reporters to get her response.This is what she had to say...

I’ll say this—I didn’t even know about it. This is my 50th interview today and every single person has asked me, and it made me go see what the hell they were talking about, because I don’t keep up on the current events of Kanye. I just don’t look him up. A lot of is just negativity and I don’t like to bring that energy into my life. But I did look at it and he said that, he said um, “When I said that I didn’t like your dress, I was an asshole. When I said that I didn’t like your hair, I was an asshole.” And he was an asshole. He was. I feel like he gets that know, and he’s remorseful about being an asshole to me. But he called me an incredible person, and I take that as an apology. And if it was an apology, I forgive him. For being an asshole. I don’t hold any grudges. I don’t hate him. I want him to find a girl and for him to treat her better than he treated me. The next girl, she doesn’t deserve that. I found pure happiness with Wiz. Why wouldn’t I want that for Kanye? I want everyone to have that, to feel the way I feel about Wiz.
Kanye recently shouted you out when he was on stage in Philly. He basically thanked Philly for making you. What do you think about that?
He thanked Philly for making me?
He said: “To the city of Philly, I want to thank y’all for making the incredible person that this song was made for…”
I think, sometimes, you don’t know what you have until it’s gone! When you do have a beautiful thing and it’s so good and it’s so beautiful, you think it’s always going to be there, you take it for granted. I guess that’s it.

Dad Vomits on himself while riding rollercoaster [Video]

This is an argument we usually have with mates, about having children in your old age, and not being able to do anything fun with them in their childhood. I guess this makes that argument for me.

Woman poses naked inside dead horse

Sometimes these headlines just writes theemselves.

After caring for a 32-year-old horse in declining health, Elizabeth Herrick and her boyfriend Joshua Washburn put it down with a single gunshot from a large calibre rifle.

Once the couple shot and gutted the horse, 21-year-old Elizabeth took off her clothing, climbed inside the carcass and took photos. After posting them online, the couple was met with an avalanche of criticism that lead to a police investigation for animal cruelty.

As well as photos of Elizabeth inside the horse's body, there are many others, one of which appears to depict the couple posing with the animal's heart

The couple's explanation for the photos -- and later eating the animal? According to authorities at the department, the pair wanted to feel "one with the horse" and nature. Detectives ruled no charges would be filed against the pair since nothing they did is technically illegal in the state of Oregon.

Should I just chalk this up to the misadventures of youth, anyway how is this different from Lafy Gaga wearing a meat dress?
