SlickTiger Industries Presents: DIVE-BAR GAME REVIEWS

DBGR Ep1I was wading through my Slicky-T fanmail the other day when I stumbled on this intriguing mail from a total badass I used to know from way back.

The long and the short of it is that this total badass (we’ll just call him the TBA for brevity’s sake) now works for Megarom and asked me if I want to review games for the site to which I of course replied “HELL YEAH!”

Which in retrospect might have been a bit hasty seeing as I don’t have a console or a gaming rig that can handle anything more intense than The Sims.

And the Winner Of The Tsogo Sun Competition Iiiiiiiisssssss…

JudithKeppel2Please believe me when I say this decision was not an easy one. There were at least three entries that made me actually laugh out loud, but sadly there can be only one winner.

At first I thought I’d chased potential entrants away by asking people to write a “well written” and funny sentence explaining why they need a holiday.

Over the course of the day entries did start to come through though, some more awesome than others, so before I announce the winner, I thought I’d give some props to the entries that came close.

Slicky-T Gets NAILED By The Mother Of All Comment-Spam

Spam-CanComment-spam is definitely one of the more intriguing forms of spam out there. It almost always comes in the form of grammatically horrendous flattery that has absolutely nothing to do with what you’ve posted.

I’m not even sure how it’s supposed to work. Even when I was a blogger-newbie desperate for comments I knew better than to approve that shite.

I wish I could though, because holy shit, the stuff I get sometimes is so hilariously random I know you guys would get a kick out of it. Case in point: the MOTHER of all comment-spam that hit my site last week.

Win A Weekend Getaway Courtesy Of Tsogo Sun And Your Tiger Pal

TsogoSale1 - 800px wideThe competitions are coming in thick and fast on TFW these days folks which means I can finally reward my loyal readers with some boodle.

That’s right, boodle. I chose that word carefully to invoke piratey scenes of golden rolling dunes, blue skies, turquoise oceans and rum because if you play your cards right, that’s exactly what you’ll win.

See, my new buddies over at Tsogo Sun have officially launched a summer sale where you can save 25% on a holiday at one of their hotels in Gauteng, Kwa-Zulu Natal or the Western Cape, but you gotta move fast, the offer closes tomorrow at 8pm!

Project Whisk(e)y: The Tiger Hits Up An Aficionados Whisky Tasting

WP_000077Aficionados is a local online whisky store that sells a lot of well-priced and rare whiskies. I joined their mailing list recently when I bought a bottle of Laphroaig Quarter Cask from the site (very awesome whisky).

They sent an invite to attend a chocolate and whisky pairing at The Wild Fig so for the sake of Project Whisk(e)y I went to check it out.

I approached the evening with the highest level of professionalism and took detailed notes which, after my third whisky, rapidly started to degenerate into something closely resembling the ramblings of a village drunk.

Pole Dancing fails – brace yourselves

pole-dancing-failWhoever invented pole dancing must have been pretty sick and tired of supporting a family of four on her check-out girl salary to have risked breaking her neck for a few twenties in her g-string.

Sound dramatic? Just wait till you see this epic collection of pole dancing fails and I think you’ll understand just how life-threatening this shit can be.

Some of these girls are clearly pros who just happen to be the victims of incredibly bad luck but as for the others all I can say is wow. For the love of everything holy step AWAY from the pole.

Dig it:

Rocking The Daisies Must-See Bands (Part 2)

KongosNow that I’ve recovered from the “IDFFLT” state that I found myself in last week, it’s time to get things back on track with my second Rocking The Daisies Must-See Bands post.

Originally I was going to break this festival down stage by stage until I realised how much work that would be on my part.

Instead, I decided to go day by day rather, a much less painful option.

So the first post pretty much covers everything for Thursday as there’s only going to be one stage up and running. Come Friday however, the festival will start coming alive and when it does, these are the bands you need to check out.

Escape Monday: FREEDOM!

joshadamski01Guys, we’ve done it. We have escaped Monday at long last and are finally free to do whatever the hell we want ALL DAY!

That’s right, it’s Heritage Day here in the good ol’ S of A, which means we can kick back, chill to the max and all braai the shit out of shit in an effort to celebrate what makes South Africans South African.

Ironically, I’ll be spending most of today working. That’s the double-edged sword that is public holidays – as awesome as they are, you lose a day of productivity which I can’t afford right now. These images from Josh Adamski are making that reality a little easier to bear though.

I Don’t Fucking Feel Like This Right Now

fuck itIt’s not often that I pull the “I don’t fucking feel like this right now” card, but I think after posting nearly every week day, sometimes more than once, whilst holding down a full-time day job, I’m entitled to just say “Fuck It” once in awhile.

I’ve gone through so many different phases during the three years I’ve been doing this it’s fucking insane.

I’ve been constantly testing the waters, feeling this shit out, experimenting with different kinds of content, “do they like it? Is it relevant? Does this make me sound like an assehole?” that sometimes I clean forget the original reason I started this site: To have fun.

Project Whisk(e)y: Johnnie Walker Platinum Launches

johnnie_walker_platinum_18Ahh, Johnnie Walker my old friend. I’ve been meaning to get round to doing a tasting on this site of one of my favourites from the House Of Walker, Johnnie Walker Double Black, but looks like that’s gonna have to wait.

As of last week, Johnnie Walker has officially introduced a new variant, Johnnie Walker Platinum which, judging from its price point, now sits just beneath Blue Label in the Walker range.

To launch this very sexy-looking 18 year old blended whisky, Johnnie Walker have opened what they’re calling the “One Bottle” liquor store in Melrose Arch, where people can bid for the first bottle of Platinum to land on SA shores.
