Random, Hilarious Interwebs LOLZ

169940585910239646_zrU6HpZY_fI’ve banged out a whole buncha what we in the industry call “hard content” this week, so if you don’t mind, I’m just gonna kick back and do very little in this post except regurgitate rad shit.

What you’re about to see is a collection of what I consider the most hilariously funny sheeit I’ve come across on the interwebs over the past month.

If you get through this post without laughing, we can’t be friends anymore. I’m sorry. It’s not me, it’s you. If we can’t at least share a few lolz on a Friday then there’s really no reason for either of us to keep up this ridiculous facade.

Project Whisk(e)y: Black Bush

bushmills-black-busk-irish-whiskey__76468_zoomLast week we went through some of the basics when it comes to how whisk(e)y is made and what the differences are between Irish and Scottish whisk(e)y, so now that you guys have nailed that part, let’s get to the fun part shall we?

The first whiskey we are going to taste together is one of my favourite Irish whiskeys of all time, Bushmills Black Bush.

I’ve chosen this specific wizzo because at the moment it’s one of whiskey’s best kept secrets, which is awesome because it means the price is ridiculous (about R280 from Makro) considering how amazing the whiskey tastes.

How The Tiger Unlocks The Power Of The Interwebs

UntitledVodacom are doing a sick campaign at the moment where they’re asking SA’s top bloggers and influencers to share the secrets of how they unlock the power of the internet.

Naturally they called up your buddy ol’ pal Slicky-T, because it’s a well-documented fact that I’ve been unlocking the power of the interwebs since the mid-90s yo.

Back then, the internet was a joke. The information published on most websites was notoriously unreliable, pages took days to load and downloading a 10MB file would have probably taken at least three hours.

If You Were A Teenage Stoner, I May Have Some Bad News For You…

girl-smoking-joint“I swear to god dude, if I hadn’t smoked so much weed in highschool, I’d be a goddamned ROCKET SURGEON or something man…”

“Huh, huh. Yeah me too bro, me too… You uhh… Done with the bong there man?” Is a conversation millions of stoners have had at some point in their lives.

Scary thing is an epic, nearly 40-year long study has just been concluded that shows without a doubt that if you smoked weed on the reg during your teenage years, it would have had a different and more damaging effect on your brain than your buddy Bonzo, who only started smoking after 18.

Flight Of The Conchords On A Mission To Save The Kids

fotc_tourIt was a sad moment in TV history when one of the best shows to ever air, Flight Of The Conchords, was cancelled after just two seasons.

Apparently American audiences just didn’t get the show, so they canned it despite the massive cult following it had, which was a gigantic load of bullshit. That show should never have been cancelled, it was pure comedic genius.

The good news though is that Brett and Jemaine have released a new song to raise money for sick children that’s called “Feel Inside (And Stuff Like That)”. They came up with the lyrics by interviewing a whole bunch of school kids about what should be done to help sick kids. Needless to say, the results are awesome.

Celebrity Prank Proves How Desperate For Attention People Are

Fake CelebIt’s insane how much people crave attention these days. I swear, if there was a way to measure humankind’s collective self esteem over the ages, right now it would be in the negative figures.

As a blogger, I guess I’m a fine one to talk though, I mean why do it if not for the attention right?

Sure, you got me there but trust me, what you’re about to see is a whole other level of desperate attention seeking.

Brett Cohen came up with the genius idea of faking that he was a big time celebrity by walking around the streets of New York with an entire entourage of photographers, videographers and managers and wow. People lapped that shit right up.

Photo-Realistic Bic Ballpoint Pen Art. Mind –> Blown.

f00ad6ec868b326fbd39ab2fdaf5a286-d4ne392This sure as hell isn’t something you see everyday. My internet travels have brought me to the doorstep of one Mr. Samuel Silva who, to put it mildly, is one talented man.

This 29 year-old uses normal, everyday bic ballpoint pens to create the most incredible art I’ve seen in a very long time, and I don’t say that lightly. His drawings are so richly textured and realistic they almost look like photographs.

Craziest part of this is the fact that the guy isn’t even an artist, he’s a motherflippin’ LAWYER! This is what he does in his spare time with only 8 different coloured bic pens, the badass.

Gettin’ Steamy With The Nokia Lumia 900

1301066774672I’ve had the pleasure of using the Lumia 900 for about two weeks now, so I’m starting to get to know this phone on a far more intimate level.

I have one or two gripes so far, but before I get into those, I want to focus on one of the things this phone does really well and that’s speed.By which I mean the phone is very fast.

This is a legitimate phone review damnit, not a rave in the 90s.

The Lumia 900 packs a 1.4 GHz Single Core processor which specs-wise doesn’t sound too impressive considering the iPhone 4s has a 1GHz Dual Core processor and the HTC One X has a 1.5 GHz Dual Core processor.

Project Whisk(e)y: Shit You Need To Know

iStock_000006313545XSmallAfter a vague introduction last week about SlickTiger Industries newest venture, Project Whisky, it’s time for us to officially get this party started.

My goal here is to get you crazy basterds drinking and enjoying whisky as much as I do because it is truly the greatest spirit ever distilled and your life will be all the better for it.

Step one is the right music. You can’t crack open a bottle of Ireland, Scotland, Japan, America, Canada, hell even India’s finest without getting into the right frame of mind. To get you there I’m calling in a favour from my good buddy, Jim Morrison.

New Muse Single Is… Meh

muse-09I don’t know what’s happened to this band, seriously. They had a run of four albums that were some of the the very best that the 00s had to offer.

Then The Resistance landed in 2009 and the first crack appeared in Muse’s armour. Instead of the tight rock masterpieces we were used to, Muse delivered an album that was “conceptually impressive but musically all too familiar”.

I gave them the benefit of the doubt though because I love this band and I knew that they could do better. “The next album is going to melt faces” I predicted, “so I’ll just let The Resistance slide for now, nobody’s perfect”.
