The Tiger Life – Episode 4

Just when you think shit can’t possibly get any better right here on Them’s Fightin’ Words, the Tiger whips out yet another FLIPPIN’ INTENSE episode of The Tiger Life!

This one breaks all previous records for “number of ridiculously famous people interviewed” and has vox pops from the likes of Khaya Ntini (SUCH a legend), Sias from 5FM, Davie Jacobs and Roxy Louw.

Yep, comin’ up in the world, can’t trust NOBODY, gotta look over my shoulder CONSTANTLY.

Enjoy this week’s episode, I hope it blows your mind and don’t worry about the lack of content the site has been experiencing over the past week, more good shit’s in the pipeline! (Wow. Worst. Sentence. Ever.)

The Tiger Life – Episode 3

This one’s taken me ages to finally get around to editing, but it’s finally done and I think it’s pretty badass.

In this week’s episode I attended a Heavy Chef session where Seth Rotheram and Rich Mulholland spoke on the topic “Is Blogging Dead?”

I would have loved to include all the stuff Rich said as well, his talk had everyone in stitches, but sadly I’m trying to keep these clips to 5 mins a pop so I had to be pretty brutal in the edit.

Anyway, enough jabbering, enjoy Smile

Scar Tissue That I Wish You Saw…

Possibly one of my biggest regrets about my life as it is right now is that I don’t read.

It’s fucking tragic when I think about how back at varsity when I was reading English Honours I was motoring through about a book a week, some of the best literature ever written, and now I read about a book a year.

And it shows too. I used to be all clever and stuff and could write good, but now all I can do is shoot a buncha shit on my cell phone and work computers to make dorky internet videos and stuff.

Anyway, I digest.

The Maen Comes Over

Sundays here are a mixed blessing. On one hand it’s quiet I got time to create content, which is a good thing, but what invariably ends up happening is I get lost in the solitude of this place and instead of using the time I got effectively, I procrastinate, think too much about my life and where it’s not going and slide into a funk.

The MAEN missioned out here today, found the place the first time (an impressive feat considering my address is “The R44”) and broke the monotony of yet another Sunday where I could feel myself sliding again.

Saturday Saved us

Saturday saved us,
First time in awhile
Showed us something
Made us smile.

Tell The Tiger (Episode 11)

It’s time.

People on the streets are dying. Mothers. Killing their children. Children. Murdering on another on the steps of churches. Human / elephant pornography. Justin Bieber.

 

 

The world has indeed fallen apart, the very fabric of society has come undone and no. It’s not because of wide-spread government corruption. It’s not because of poor school systems or the mass media rotting the minds of our youth.

It’s because everyone’s emails that they’ve been sending in the thousands to tellthetiger@gmail.com have gone unanswered for far too long.

The Culprits!

If you read this blog regularly (seek help) you might have stumbled on the post I wrote awhile back about how living in the shit shack J-Rab and I have ended up in is driving us completely nuts.

Well, a big part of that were the owls. Right outside our wooden shed were a pair of Spotted Eagle Owls that would hoot, loud as fuck, all through the night until J-Rab and I were driven totally shit-your-pants mad.

Eventually we resorted to standing on our balcony at 2 in the morning and trying to pelt the fuckers with onions because that’s all we could find to throw.

Album Review: Kings Of Leon–Come Around Sundown

After Kings Of Leon released Only By The Night the die-hards who’d been following them since their Youth And Young Manhood days became instantly polarised, some saying they had finally sold out and some saying Only By The Night was their greatest album to date.

 

 

Either way you looked at it, it was going to be a tough album to follow and while their latest offering Come Around Sundown does pack a lot of great material, if Only By The Night is the only Kings album you know, the new album will probably fall short of your expectations.

Sandton City Parking – Taking Things To A Whole Other Level

It’s a known fact that parking in larney shopping centres, whether they are in Joburg or Cape Town, is ridiculously expensive.

I’ve been fleeced for as much as R10 for parking for 5 minutes which may not sound like a lot, but when you spend as much time in shopping centres as I do, that can add up to as much as R10 a month!

In my recent trip to Joburg I was forced to pay a visit to the Nashua Mobile in Sandton city to get an upgrade on my 3G card and on arriving was SHOCKED and DISMAYED to find that parking in said shopping centre seems to have undergone the same hyper-inflation that Germany suffered post World War I where a basketful of money would buy you two Chappies.
